All About Denim

I don’t know about you guys but I am completely in love with the denim trend that has being going around recently. From classic styles to quirky co-ords, I am obsessed. 

Recently, I purchased a classic black oversized denim jacket from Topshops Moto range. 

A denim jacket is perfect for styling with just about anything for any occassion. They are definitely a style staple for anyone’s wardrobe all year round. 

You can find the jacket I am wearing via the link below.

Valentino Rock Stud Trainers

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had the most amazing Christmas spent with loved ones and that you don’t feel too guilty for over indulging on pigs in blankets …

Today’s post is about my new Valentino Garavani Rockstud Noir trainers I have invested in. I have never been someone who has purchased designer item/s, mainly because I simply can’t afford anything due to being a student/having a part time job. I am also the most clumsiest and forgetful person you will ever meet so the thought of loosing/damaging a designer piece that I paid a lot of money for completely freaks me out.

I have been obsessed with Valentino Rock Stud heels and trainers for AGES, from working in Flannels that sells designer item/s, it was only a matter of time before I would purchase one of the two. After deciding to go for the black pair featuring rock stud details, I was so excited to wear them, especially since the last pair were in my size. (It was meant to be!!)

The Shoes Feature; studs on the band, black laces, a number 11 label and rubber soles.

My trainers have yet to be worn and I can’t wait to show you all what I decide to style them with.

Casual T and Blazer

Hey, 

So recently I’ve been keeping my eye out for staple pieces for the A/W seasons approaching. 

With the sales being on, I was browsing on Topshops clearance and came across a black loose fitted blazer that was exactly what I was looking for… even better it was reduced from £49 to just £10!

I love the gold button details and how you can wear it as a top as it wraps over when it fastens. It also features slits in the sleeve which is a great style detail, perfect if you like accessorising with bracelets and watches that you want to be visible.

There’s still sizes 8,10 and 12 in store so be sure to grab yours quickly. I’ll attach a link below. 


I also fell in love with the Milan T shirt by the brand Tee and Cake in Topshop, it’s so simple yet chic and perfect for dressing up or down. It is definitely a great staple piece, especially for £18.



You can find the link to both items below!

Sian Paris Boutique

Good Morning,

Today’s post is about my recent collaboration with Sian Paris Boutique.

You can find the boutique on Buchanan Street in Glasgow. It is positioned on the second floor of Argyll Arcade and it is such a cute space.

From cute tops, bottoms, co-ordinates, dresses, shoes and accessories … Sian’s Boutique is the perfect place to shop for something stylish and quirky.

On Wednesday, I went into the store to try on some pieces that I liked and I ended up trying on most of the things in the shop hahah! Everything is so nice.

my favourite set was a cream co-ord you can see below. The top is loose fitted and features long sleeves with slits at the side and a V neckline. The high waisted palazzo bottoms feature pleats at the front for an added style feature.

This set is £50. It would be perfect for any occasion whether your dressing the outfit up or down. It is so comfy as well which is an extra bonus!

I also fell in love with the baby pink summer dress that features ruffle details, a V neckline and a tie back.


This dress is retailing at £38 and is a complete style steal for your wardrobe. I can’t wait to take it on my next holiday … it’s so cute and would look great in the sun.

If you are in Glasgow you should definitely visit, otherwise take a look on Sian’s website that I will link you to below.

Have a great weekend,

SWATCH : SKIN Collection #YOURMOVE

Hey guys,

Recently I have teamed up with the Swiss watch brand, Swatch to review the brand’s new SKIN collection range.

I was invited to a bloggers event at the Swatch store in Glasgow on Buchanan Street where each of us got to try on all of the watches from the new collection and I’m in love.

The idea for the SKIN range was to mark a new era for the brands thinnest watch line. It takes inspiration from the unknown, the beauty of movement and the anticipation of change. The collection is unisex and includes different face sizes too.

After trying the watches on, I was in minimalist heaven making my decision on what one to choose so much harder.

As I have a few classic watches I decided to go for a more sporty/chic style of watch and after a long decision making process I chose this one you can see below.

img_5230.jpg
The misty rose dial features diamanté crystals around the drill points that make it look really classic yet suitable for everyday wear.

When I tried this watch on I couldn’t believe just how light it was, you wouldn’t even notice it being on your wrist like you do with other watches. I wear mine all of the time now, especially to the gym.




The look of the watch comes together with the misty rose matte silicone strap, loop and buckle.

I usually find it hard to find a watch that fits my wrist size, the buckle holes in this watch have good size variations meaning if you want to wear it loose or tight, you have the option.

The watches come in so many different styles with one to suit everyone’s tastes.

You can see the other styles of watches from the range below and can find them via this link:

I would definitely recommend checking them out if you are looking for a timeless piece to add to your watch collection.

That Pink Boutique Dress

Good Morning,

Today’s post is about my recent dress I bought from Pink Boutique for a wedding reception I was at last weekend.

I am always apprehensive about purchasing clothing online as I have had a few disasters which I am sure you can all relate to haha!

I came across the website ‘Pink Boutique’ and I couldn’t recommend the brand more. The dress I ordered looked exactly as it did online, it was also very affordable and can be worn for lots of different occasions whether your going out with friends, a family party or going to a wedding like I was.




I acessorised this look with silver jewellery with a black clutch and heels.

The dress I’m wearing can be found here, it’s a complete style steal for just £25

You can find the Kurt Gieger heels I’m wearing from the link below. They are definitely my new favourites as they give a lot of height, I love the cross over strap detail too.

The Beginning Of Spring

Hi guys, 

Tonight’s post is about my favourite season of the year and yesterday’s day out with my mum to celebrate Mothers Day! 

Who else is glad that Spring is finally here? Seeing the blossoms on trees and nice weather coming in is getting me so excited for the Easter Holidays! I can’t believe it’s almost April already, this year is going by so quickly. 

To celebrate Mothers Day yesterday, I treated my mum to a bouncy blow dry at a new salon opened up in Glasgow, Clarkston Southside called ASH and I cannot recommend the salon enough. The place is so cute and quirky with a modern vibe and lots of rose gold details (which I am obsessed by). The hairdressers are great too and both mine and my mums hair has remained bouncy for two days! You can check out the salons Instagram at @ashprohair to see all of the lovely hairstyles they have done previously. For those of you that live nearby you should definitely go and try it out whether your going for hair, makeup or nails. 


Since it was sunny, me and my mum spent the afternoon in the City and went to a bar called The Social for lunch as well as doing some shopping … we ended up buying lots of makeup instead of clothes which is unusual for us hahah! 


(Sporting my bouncy blow dry) I finally got to wear my fringed jacket again since it wasnt freezing for once. This one is from Hollister. I accessorised with my Michel Kors gold chain mini cross body, Chloe sunnies and gold chain from New Look. 


For once I wasn’t wearing any black which is a miracle! I opted for skinny denim jeans, a cream body suit (River Island) and brown MK sandals, accessories and jacket. 

Below I have styled a similar look with all items being from River Island!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and have a good week ahead 

Goodnight
