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!!)

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!

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.

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.
