Haul & Try-On // Basics From Topshop, H&M, New Look & Primark

This isn't the most exciting of hauls but everyone needs basics! As I'm heading to university this week, I picked myself up some items I can wear with multiple outfits. I'm quite bad at buying myself basics so this was a well needed trip!

Brand New // Lace Trim Shorts

Summer is sadly now drawing to a close so I've been trying to wear these as much as I can. Romwe had one of their flash sales about a month ago on these black lace trim shorts and as I had been lusting after a very similar pair from Ark, I decided to snap these up for around £6.

An Alternative Use

I love me a Maybelline Colour Tattoo - On & On Bronze is one of my all-time favourite products. But, I just couldn't get on with Permanent Taupe. The colour didn't look right on me - it made me look really tired - and it creased after a few hours which hasn't happened with the others I've used. However, I've discovered an alternative use!

Daily Outfits // BBQ

I realised I haven't made a Daily Outfit post in a while (the last one posted included photos taken in Wales a month ago!) so when my family held a little BBQ in our garden, I thought I would take some snaps.

Summer Nail Polish

This summer I've been experimenting a little more with my nails, testing the waters with non-pink-hued colours. So, it felt appropriate to share the shades I've been sporting on my nails the past few months. These all happen to be Barry M as I just adore the Gelly Nail Paint formula!

Summer Reading

I don't really talk about books often on here, but I am an avid reader. I actually just got into an English & Creative Writing course at uni! Anyway, I thought I would share with you the books I have read over the past few weeks, while travelling and while chilling.

Daily Outfits // Daisy Grey

How many times can I feature this skirt; I know, I know. But when the sun comes out, this skirt slips on. I took these photos while in Baumaris, Wales, on holiday. It was a lovely little town with a huge pier which people would go crabbing on, and had lots of cute gift shops and eating places. Anyway, onto the outfit...

Ch-Ch-Changes (In Blogging & Life)

I'm squeezing this post into my regular schedule so I can let you guys hear some good news - I got into university! Exam results in Scotland were sent out on Tuesday morning and I was pleased to see that I met my conditions and will be going to study English & Creative Writing in a month's time (Oh god, that soon?!).

taken at 4:30am after I received my results (I couldn't sleep!)



#ProjectBareAll was created by the lovely Megan // Thumbelina Lillie. The premise is to inspire confidence without makeup, to show everyone that we don't need makeup to feel good about ourselves. So, hear I am, bare faced on the internet. I have dark circles and scarring from spots and badly bitten lips and sparse eyebrows and my face is so much paler than my body, but that's okay. It's normal.

Review // Dirty Looks Hair Extensions

Last month, Dirty Looks interviewed me on their blog as part of their Hair Talk series with bloggers. After chatting all things hair (I spoke about milkmaid braids a few times too many) they kindly asked if I would like to be sent a set of hair extensions to review, so of course I said yes!

Climbing Snowdon & Lifestyle Lessons

If you had a read of my post detailing what I got up to on a recent family holiday in Wales, then you will have seen that we climbed Mount Snowdon! Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales (us Scots have beaten you there, rest of the UK) so it was definitely not an easy feat. I had so many photos that I thought I would make Snowdon its own post.

New Jewellery Pieces (& Black Tied Discount Code!)

I made a Staple Jewellery Items post not too long ago, but I recently acquired a few more bits which have quickly become everyday wear for me, and so I thought I would do a little revamp!
