An Easy Going Look On The Beach

A comfortable and casual look for exploring the beach I have this last set of photos from my holiday to St. Ives in June that I wanted to finally share with you. It basically sums up a lot of what Adam and I spent doing on the beach… exploring. We loved looking around the cliffs and rocks, finding rock pools and interesting creatures, just generally looking around and finding out new things! I never personally see the point of going on holiday and only staying within the resort when you have so much to see! Since we were off on our adventures, a comfortable outfit was definitely in need and this is what I wore for those days. My vintage Levi’s denim shorts with a grey ASOS tee, finished with my New Balance 410 sneakers/trainers in Sonic Navy. Of course my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Backpack in White was in need to carry all of my things around and my Ray-Ban Aviators in Mirror Pink to keep the sun out of my eyes. The views and scenery in St. Ives were the most beautiful I have seen in some time. I’m so used to countryside fields and forests, so seeing a beach and ocean so blue with cliffs was definitely amazing. I really can’t wait to go back there! I’ve included some more scenery photos that we took as well, so you can truly see the beauty of it. I definitely recommend St. Ives if you like the idea of quiet little old fashioned towns as it’s not a party place. I hope you enjoy these photos! (Shorts – Exact,…

A White Dress On A Blue Beach

A white Grecian style dress on the beach Another set of photos from St. Ives to share with you! Firstly though, I wanted to say thank you so much for the support you gave me in my previous post about the M.E. I honestly wasn’t expecting to get such a good response from it, but it’s had over 700 views already in 2 days and lots and lots of supportive comments. It really makes me happy to be able to spread awareness about it and share something personal with you all. So getting to my outfit, this is a look that I wore on the first day that we went to the beach on holiday. I didn’t realise at the time, but the sun is so strong there that it did actually turn my skin a shade of pink which I can now see on the photos. It’s crazy how just going a little further south can intensify it that much! I was wearing my Zara Grecian style dress that I have had for a couple of years and just teamed it with some colour from my Ray-Ban mirror pink aviators and then I wore my Olivia Burton butterfly watch. It’s just a really simple look as it was so hot and I was barefoot on the sand, which even with my germ problems, I actually quite enjoyed! I was thinking the other day, it’s been a really long time since I got a new watch. There’s so many ladies designer watches, like these from Tesco, out and about that it is hard to choose, especially since I have quite…

Ray-Ban Shrunken Aviator Sunglasses in Cyclamen Mirror Pink

My new Ray-Ban Shrunken Aviator Sunglasses in Cyclamen Mirror Pink You probably know by now that I absolutely adore mirrored lens sunglasses. I already own Ray-Ban mirrored aviators in red, blue and green, as well as the Erika in mirrored turquoise, red and purple, so I definitely felt like my collection was missing a certain colour… pink! These gorgeous sunglasses lenses are actually called Cyclamen and the shade is a combination of orange, pink and purple, sort of in an ombre tone as you can see when viewed from the side, however, from a straight on view they are actually a full pink which is intense. These sunglasses are absolutely gorgeous! I wasn’t sure on the frames at first as I am used to the regular aviator style, however I couldn’t find them anywhere with these lenses so I had to go for the shrunken aviator style instead. I think they are actually really nice and they suit my face a lot better than I had been expecting. I’ve already worn these sunglasses out twice now and I am definitely sure that they will be getting a lot of use in the coming months! As long as the sun is shining that is! What do you think of them? I’d love to know your thoughts! You can see them in action in one of my little Instagram videos by clicking here and you can buy these sunglasses online at Shopbop by clicking here.

My New Ray-Ban Blue Velvet Erika Sunglasses

Ray-Ban Erika Mirrored Blue Sunglasses The warmer weather is fast approaching and as Spring is now here, I’ve been thinking about some new designer sunglasses! I got these gorgeous Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Blue Velvet from Sunglasses Shop a few weeks ago and had been waiting for a sunnier day to share them with you. I do own the Erika already in purple and red, but I had been a huge fan of the aqua blue colour since last year when they came out, so I couldn’t wait to try them! I think the shape of the frames is absolutely gorgeous, I love the way they sit on the face and they aren’t too big or too small, plus with the velvet around the plastic, it really helps with them staying on your face and absorbing any moisture. The mirrored lenses are extremely reflective too, you can see absolutely everything in them, just like a mirror, and your eyes remain hidden! I honestly can’t wait for it to warm up some more so I can wear these more! What do you think of these Ray-Ban Erika Mirrored Lens Sunglasses? Have you seen any other fashion bloggers wearing them? I know Sunglasses Shop also have a Ray-Ban sale on at the moment too, so you might be able to snap something good up!

After Some Down Time

(Jeans – Exact, Tee – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Sunglasses – Exact, Watch – Exact, Necklace – Exact) I’m back! I took a much needed little holiday with my boyfriend from Friday night to Monday afternoon and we didn’t have a laptop or camera with us. It was really nice to spend time away from the computer for a while and just have some down time, not stressing out too much about blog work or social media as I usually tend to do. I have been updating Instagram, but I do that for fun, so I will have a few photos to show you from London, but not a huge amount. I managed to get lots of shopping done, lots of eating and rest, despite being so hot I could have melted! These photos were taken quite a while ago, however I never got around to posting them. They were shot at my favourite park with the animals all around and I thought it was fitting to go with the relaxing weekend I just had. I wore my Paige Jimmy Jimmy jeans in Clifton Destructed, a green tee from ASOS, my Topshop Koala espadrilles, Ray-Ban mirrored aviators, my Daniel Wellington watch and a Floating Memory Locket necklace that I got given by Your Fashion Jewellery. It’s called Believe and has a little bee and sapphire inside, to represent my blog name and believing in yourself. I love it! Anyway, this was just a little update before I get back into the swing of things tomorrow. I’m sure other fashion bloggers can relate when I say that down time is needed…

The Floral Shirt & Denim Shorts At The Park

(Shorts – Exact, Shirt – Exact, Shoes – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Bangle – Exact, Watch – Exact) These photos are from two weekends ago when I spent the evening in the Botanical Gardens with my boyfriend. It was pretty much deserted as it was quite late, so it was beautiful to have the place all to ourselves. Since I’m very light footed and a quiet person, animals are always drawn to me as I think they sense that I love them, so feeding them is something that makes me happy and just sitting with them. It’s so relaxing and calming and something that I need every now and then as I’m always so wrapped up in work. I was lucky that it was warm out so I could still be in shorts. Speaking of which, these are my vintage Levi’s denim shorts in black from Urban Outfitters. I got these two years ago, not long after I got my blue pair, however I ended up with a smaller size and didn’t realise, so they had always been too tight on me, but since I have changed shape and lost a few pounds, they fit me now. Tightly I might add, but they do, so I can finally wear them! Now onto this gorgeous shirt, I saw it in the day time before going to the park. It was on the hanger in River Island and I just fell in love with it entirely. It’s really silky and the floral print is very intense and bold. I can’t wait to wear it again, maybe with jeans this time, but it…

The Basketball Tee

(Jeans – Similar, Tee – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Watch – Exact, Shades – Exact, Bracelet – Exact) You may remember this Topshop Basketball Tee from my new purchases post that I made last week. Since it’s been plenty warm enough to actually go out in just a t-shirt, this is the first time that I actually got to wear it! I wore it to the Botanical Gardens on Sunday when I went to go and relax, feed the squirrels and birds and just enjoy the Spring time! It’s such a beautiful place and it’s one of my favourites when the weather is warmer. I take nuts and seeds and often sit in a quiet spot and feed the squirrels and birds from my hands as they can be quite tame if they trust you. I plan on posting more photos soon though! I’m really enjoying nature at the moment! I paired my Basketball Tee with my trusty black Levi’s Skinny Jeans as these are one of my go to’s when it comes to black! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable, so they couldn’t be better if they tried! To keep with the black theme, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black to add some height and femininity to the look and then lots of accessories! I chose my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Black Critter Watch which I got from Shade Station, then also my Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Red Velvet, which you just saw yesterday! For bracelets, I went with my Bibi Bijoux Blue Crystal bracelet and a couple of others from ASOS. I’m…
