Top:  H&M (many years ago)  //  Shorts:  Self-made  //  Shoes: Public Desire

Hey lovelies, a bit of a 'smart-casual' look for you today. I've been clearing out my childhood home over the past few weeks as it has now been sold. Despite me living in my own flat for over a year now it still feels weird that soon enough it will belong to someone else. When you've lived somewhere for literally your whole life it's a massive deal knowing it won't be there for you to pop in anymore (emotional!)

So anyway, when I was clearing out my university boxes I found these shorts which I made for a project in my second year and I've always loved them so I couldn't resist trying them on straight away! Fortunately they are the perfect fit (and I didn't even make them for me!) 

I decided to pair them with a casual top as the long length shorts in this material can come across quite formal sometimes so I opted for my Nirvana top which I bought from H&M a few years ago. At first I wondered what else I would be able to pair with these shorts but going through my wardrobe I have found a few items that will go with them so expect to see these again!

I also opted for my new shoe boots from Public Desire. I'd not heard of the brand before but after seeing some hype on Instagram I checked out the website and fell in love with these shoes! I think they are perfect for dressing up or down and are so comfortable and chic, I love them!

Hey loves, today I thought I would share my experience with Glossybox so far. I remember years and years ago I had a voucher for a free box and although I was pleased with the products I didn't sign up to it for some reason and now I'm wondering why!

Me and my friend Hayley from work signed up last month as a little mid-month treat for ourselves. It's such a good deal because you pay £13.25 per month (including p&p) and you get £30 worth of beauty products to try!

So the box above ^^^ is from May. It held a good selection including a lipstick, nail varnish, eyeliner, dry shampoo and a moisturizer. The eyeliner I am yet to use as it's a light blue one side and navy the other so better suited for a night out than every day use. The lipstick is okay but it might get some getting used to as it's not usually my colour, maybe better for blondes, and I'm currently using the moisturizer for every day use in the mornings on my face and it's more of a gel which is unusual but I like it.

The box below is from this month, June. This month it was festival themed, hence the body tattoos which I am yet to use but they look quite cool. The face mist is lovely! It is so refreshing and the best part is that it keeps your make up in place too! The face wipes are really refreshing too and are great for taking your make up off with ease. The nail varnish is a pretty colour, I currently have it on my toes and the anti-cellulite moisturizer I am yet to use but Hayley has used it and said it is really firming and tightening which is good - and you don't just have to use it if you have cellulite as it helps to prevent it too!

Have any of you had Glossybox in the past or are subscribed to it now? Personally I think signing up to Glossybox is a great idea if you're like me and want to try new things but don't want to spend a fortune to find out you don't like something! It's also a good pick me up during the month or could be a great present for someone you know :)

Jacket:  Vintage  //  Top: New Look  //  Jeans: Topshop  //  Shoes: New Look

Hello lovelies, another outfit for you all today (these are my fav posts I can't deny!) This outfit was pretty much thrown together on Saturday but I liked the combo so thought I would share it with you all!

As you can see I am loving these New Look high neck tops at the moment. I already have the cream and grey ones at the but I am tempted to go back and purchase some more! They're just so handy to have as they go with anything, hence why I keep reaching for them when I'm getting ready in the morning!

Since owning a pair of Joni jeans (which hasn't been long, where have I been?!) I'm pretty sure there's not been many days where they have left my legs! They are so comfortable, the perfect fit and just go with anything! I chucked on this vintage jacket which I didn't think was going to go with the outfit, but I was pleasantly surprised when it did! Add some chunky shoes, MAC Dangerous lipstick and 80's inspired voluminous hair and I was good to go!
