The Culottes Trend.



My latest obsession is the wonder that is the culotte. Originally worn by gentlemen of the European upper class in the late Middle Ages they somehow made their way into women's fashion and having been a huge trend during the 60's and 70's they disappeared off the radar only to make a modern comeback in 2015.

I put together two different ways I would style them. Both sticking to the androgynous theme. 

What are your thoughts on culottes.. yes or nah?

The Outfit | Fourteen

Top: Promod
Jeans: Vintage
Checked shirt: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Missguided

So after 200 years I finally got myself a pair of mom jeans.. the best part is, they were only a tenner! Not only am I happy, so is my bank balance. I'm trying to come up with different ways of styling them but I kept this pretty basic, less is more n'stuff. 

Giz a follow! 

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

March Style Inspiration.

So, I've decided that every so often it would be nice to make a post based around pictures I come across on places like tumblr and pinterest in an attempt to inspire different ways to style things. 

It's easy to get stuck in a bit of a style rut sometimes, most days I wear the same jeans and a smelly old hoodie my boyfriend left behind. But seeing pictures like these makes me want to pack in this homeless vibe I have going on and opt for something a little less help me i'm poor and a little more Alexa Chung meets Dawn Porter.

Here's what's catching my eye this month:
Mom jeans
Crocet bralets
Tulle skirts
Layered necklaces

I hope this has inspired at least one of you!
Until next time folks!

Manuka Honey Face Mask

I'm forever trying to come up with ways to save money and make my own face and hair masks. One recipe I came across a year or two ago was this one, I began using it at a time my skin was covered in breakouts that I couldn't shift and within 3 months of using it I saw a dramatic change in my skins appearance and so, I have been using this ol' reliable mask on and off since. 

You will need:
2 tablespoons of Manuka Honey 
2 tablespoons of Cinnamon 
2 drops of Tea Tree Oil

Manuka Honey is a natural antibacterial, it contains acids, which aids in the clearing of dead skin cells preventing and clearing acne. While doing this it also hydrates, rejuvenates and protects the skin. Cinnamon helps to bring blood and nutrients to the skin while helping to dry any acne on the face. While adding a drop or two of tea tree oil will remove any kind of bacteria that can build up on your skin causing more breakouts. 

Please do share any diy face masks you know of, I'd love to try them!

February in pictures

So if you don't know already, to change things up on my blog and to steer away from the usual fashion and beauty posts I have decided to share a few of my favourite instagram snaps on here and give a little low down on the past month. 

I'm still struggling to come to terms with the fact that we're already into March. February was quite stressful with college,work and everything else inbetween it's no wonder it flew in! But sandwiched between all that I had a lovely Valentine's Day, finally got to see The Kooks, let my friend paint my body and started to plan a few little summer getaways. 

Do follow me on instagram!
