TSHIRT C/O BBT CLOTHING // DUNGEREES C/O ROMWE // BOOTS: ASOS

I realise I look like i've just finished a day of decorating...but how cool are these dungarees? 

I've been trawling Pinterest recently and have seen white overalls cropping up everywhere,I LOVE THEM!! They are so comfy and casual and make a nice change from jeans. 
Paired with a cool band tee (todays choice being the awesome Zeppelin) and some tough boots,they will definetley ease me into A/W.

How would you style them?

A/W KIMONOS

As the Summer slowly dwindles away we are having to say goodbye to our bum skimming shorts and crop tops.
It always seems a shame to me that summer style never lasts more than a couple of months and i'm constantly thinking about how I can revive some of my pieces for the colder months,one being... The kimono.
Everyone and their mother went mad for the kimono trend this summer and it looks like the trend is here to stay,I have come across some beauties which I need to get my hands on.

It seems if the background of the print is black then it will work for A/W.
I love how the first Kimono is styled,It's definitely something I would wear,I can see myself living in mom jeans,long sleeved tops,ankle boots and a kimono this Autumn,even a wooly jumper thrown over so you can see the kimono draping out from underneath it....Perfect!!

Which one is your favourite and how would you style it?

LEOPARD & CHECKS

SHIRT: CHARITY SHOP // BELT: CHARITY SHOP // JEANS: RIVER ISLAND // BOOTS: ASOS

A super casual outfit today,I threw it on to run some errands but thought the patterns looked pretty cool together,I'm not a huge fan of clashing prints but these felt pleasing to the eye.

I also thought it was about time I actually wore some of the crap I'm forever buying at charity shops,I have an ongoing love for checked shirts so this little £2 number had to be added to the collection.

YOUR TEA

P1080725
I was recently contact by the lovely people at 'your tea' asking if I fancied trying out some of their detox tea.I've always been intrigued by detox teas but if I'm being completely honest I've always been put off by the price and the fact of 'Do they actually work?' 
Nevertheless I jumped at the opportunity to test some out and see if the reviews were true.

My detox lasted for 14 days (3 teabags a day).It claims to gently cleanse your digestive system and reduce bloating.
 I usually hate the taste of herbal tea but I was pleasantly surprised buy this one,it also smelt divine.
 I added half a teaspoon of organic honey to slightly sweeten it (and to feed my honey addiction). I was a bit concerned that it would have a laxative effect but luckily it didn't ...Everything was normal ;)
I have a photo of my stomach on my instagram after my 14 days were up HERE

I can honestly say the difference it made was incredible,NOTHING,EVER stops my belly from bloating but the effect that this tea had was brilliant.I also found that my skin looked a little brighter and more awake.

They do an array of different teas from 'her tea','his tea', 'energy tea' etc .I'm dying to try more.
Dare I say it but they would make great Christmas gifts for tea lovers.

I'm so pleased I tried this detox out and stuck to it,it has worked wonders and i'll definitely be buying more,might even try the 28day detox.

Let me know if you've tried it and your results.

Much Love

JUMPER,VEST & SHORTS C/O MISSGUIDED // BRALET C/O CHOIES // BOOTS: TOPSHOP

Is anyone else clinging onto every last bit of sunshine and the occasional warm day? I can see summer slowly drifting away from me and I haven't even worn half of the clothes I have bought for the supposed hot months.
However,I decided to don my shorts and pair them with a lightweight jumper to keep the wind out.I'm in love with these shorts,they are such a lovely cut and will be getting as much wear out of them as I can before the winter strikes!

MEAT FEAST

Apologies veggies....
These photos have been kicking around on my computer for a good month now and I thought it was about time I shared them.
I took it upon myself to cook a great big meat feast for my family one night.We had pulled pork,spicy sticky chicken wings,peppered sweet potato fries,sesame seed toasted buns and sweet slaw...it was immense.

Although it took pretty much all day to prepare,cook and serve up,it was totally worth it,extremely yummy and makes for great pictures.

Meat brings people together (silence your filthy minds)

SUNGLASSES: PRIMARK // JUMPER: NEW LOOK // TROUSERS: TOPSHOP // BAG: PRIMARK // NEW BALANCE: ASOS

Say hello to my new A/W jumper.
I'm never drawn to anything in New Look but when I saw this bright,ribbed(don't laugh),beauty hanging on the wall I was immediately smitten.
They styled it so well with a denim shirt and a tonne of pearls(I will definitely be trying that when the weather gets cooler).

I usually steer clear of colour as my hair is so bright I end up looking awful but the neon orange,textured knit was too beautiful to pass up.
