SWIMSUIT C/O MISSGUIDED // COVER UP C/O THECITYRACK

I've been on the hunt for a new swimsuit for a while now and I think i've finally found the perfect one.
The colour is beautiful,the fit is great,the cut outs are all in the right places and it looks awesome on.
Maybe not the right swimsuit to swim lengths in as certain bits of skin might pop out but to laze round the pool in its perfect and ticks all the boxes for me.

The Cobalt blue and Plum Purple of this cover up are a definite head turner.I think its about time I booked a holiday.

Much Love

LAZY DAY

BOWL & CUSHION C/O DOTCOMGIFTSHOP

One of my favourite things to do on a lazy day is lie in bed,read magazines,surround myself in cushions and eat.This may make me sound like a slob but I believe in nothing better than having a major chill out session at every opportunity possible,it always makes me feel 100 times more relaxed, especially if I'm having a tough day.
I try and fill my bowl with fruit or veg but the occasional packet of chicken super noodles slips in which always leaves me feeling extremely guilty.

I'm loving style magazine at the moment which comes free in the Sunday Times,I can't afford anything they feature in it but its such a lovely layout and definitely my go to magazine for outfit inspiration.

What do you do to chill out on your day off?

As soon as I set eye on this chalkboard with griddled courgette on, I put on a slight sprint,I would never of thought bacon and courgette would taste so amazing together,turns out its insane and I will definitely be trying it in my next bacon sandwich.
P1080371P1080373P1080376P1080379After filling our faces and drinking copious amounts of tea we headed back through the market,stopping at every flower stall possible (mum is obsessed),checking out some local crafts(this bloke was awesome at carving kitchen utensils and bowls out of wood) and obviously perving on some more food stalls.

I've been meaning to put this post up since friday but completely forgot,time ticked by,I got drunk and now it is Monday.

I wore this super casual outfit to a beer and cider festival,it was very hot and I knew i'd get flustered so didn't want much on, I opted for shorts and a vest...Can you ever go wrong with that?

I am fully aware my hair resembles a mushroom,a much needed haircut is in order,can you guys recommend some good stylists in the Midlands area?
