Back on that health kick...

Tuesday, June 06, 2017

Hey girls! 

I have decided that this week is going to be the week that I get back into the gym and start looking after my body properly! For the past few months I have been eating absolute rubbish, hardly working out and just wearing out my body! On top of that, a few weeks ago I ended up in hospital with a bad chest and I just decided enough was enough! 

And with that in mind...I wanted to share with you my new activewear set! Realistically we all need a new set to motivate us, right?! You may remember when I visited the JD Women press day earlier this year and I specifically mentioned a khaki Pink Soda set that I was obsessed with. Well.. you guessed it, it's finally dropped!

I literally love it and I think Pink Soda have absolutely nailed it with this set!

Leggings: Available here.

Thank you so much for reading!

Nike Free Run Commuter 2 ....

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Hi girls! 

As you all know, I have an obsession with trainers; I live in them! So, you can imagine my excitement as soon as JD mentioned their new  Nike Free Run Commuter 2 trainers; I knew I had to try them out! 

They are very comfortable and extremely versatile. I often wear mine with either jeans or leggings, as you will see below - they really do go with any outfit! Of course, they're designed for the gym / a run etc but like I said sometimes it's nice to pair them with everyday wear! I also feel like these would be the perfect option for your commute to work, they are honestly so lightweight and I don't think you could get any comfier! 

For these and other womens trainers check out my faves,  JD Sports.

My Top 5 Royal Ascot Picks!

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Hey ladies! 

So racing season is fast approaching and I know only too well the struggle of finding the perfect dress. With that in mind, I have picked my top 5 dresses that I am currently loving! 

This is one of my fave looks for Ascot. You can't go wrong with a classy floral detail dress, last year my friends and I all wore dresses by Quiz and I literally loved them all! Pair with some coloured heels to brighten it up and a cream fascinator and you're good to go! 

I am obsessed with this dress! You really have the opportunity to make this look as dressy as you wish. You can make this a classic look with black heels and a black fascinator or you can experiment a little with metallic colours! 

So some of you may think this outfit is a little dark for the races but it is perfect for those of you that want to cover up that little bit more! For £15 it really is perfect if you are on a budget and you can again dress the look up with an up-do and accessories! 

The PERFECT classy Ascot dress! This dress is perfect for all enclosures, the straps aren't too thin and the dress isn't too short. I would pair this up with a pashmina and cute heels! 

The classic go-to Ascot look. Black and cream is possibly the easiest colour scheme to go for, especially if you want to keep budget to a minimum. All of us have a pair of black heels and you can dress it up with a killer necklace! 

I hope this has given you a little inspo!

Living in loungewear..

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Hey everyone! 

As you may have been able to tell I am currently obsessed with loungewear/trainer combos! I just think they are perfect for a stylish yet casual look.

My latest set is by Pink Soda Sport and I could not be happier with it! It's very much focussed on lifestyle wear rather than activewear and it is SO comfortable to wear.

Of course I had to coordinate with (almost) matching trainers, I opted for the Adidas Tubulars in white and they are a new favourite of mine!  One thing I love about JD Sports is that they literally have the biggest variety of Women's Trainers in the styles we love!

It is safe to say this will be my go-to casual look for a while!

Seeing as it's our fave time of the month (payday obvs) I thought I'd create a little wishlist of things I'm currently loving! You can totally blame me for the money you spend - happy shopping!x

My Kinda OOTD....

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Today I wanted to share my go-to look at the moment! It's no secret that I love a casual trainer - jean combo and as soon as I saw the new Nike Oatmeal Air Presto Fly trainers, I knew I had a new obsession! 

They are genuinely the comfiest pair of trainers I own and the colour is perfect for summer. They are from JD Women but be quick as they keep selling out! I paired them with my camel Puma top and my classic New Look ripped jeans. 

Look out for these on my Instagram!

I wanted to share with you a few bits of sportswear I believe you need in your wardrobe! As some of you may know, JD Sports have launched the new Superdry Sport range as an online exclusive and I have to say, I am VERY impressed. 

The material is extremely high quality, the leggings in particular stood out to me as they are very thick and aren't see-through. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised as I don't often wear Superdry clothing but I am seriously obsessed with their sportswear now! 

As we all know, I am a JD addict and I now have yet another excuse to shop online with this exclusive!

24 Hours of Bliss... Brooklands Hotel & Spa Review.

Friday, January 13, 2017

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to visit Brooklands Hotel & Spa in Weybridge*, Surrey. Boasting a fantastic location, set opposite the Mercedes Benz World racetrack, it really is a special venue. 

I must admit, I have been lucky enough to visit a range of luxurious hotels in the past and it is safe to say this was absolutely no exception. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble, we were greeted by the reception staff who kindly came with me to my car to collect my luggage. Believe me, there was a lot - even for one night! 

Our room was on the 4th floor and was called the Percy Lambert Suite, which I would highly recommend if you are celebrating a special occasion. Complete with a lounge, dining room, dressing room and office - it really is the suite of dreams. OH and did I mention it had a track-facing view of the racetrack?! Zack was in his absolute element!

As you can see it is huge! Complete with all the gadgets, (Tablet, iPhone dock, bathroom speakers) myself and Zack really made ourselves at home. In actual fact, I could have stayed in that suite forever (no, really I could!)

1907 Award-Winning Bar & Grill: 

We booked a dinner reservation in the award-winning restaurant, 1907, and absolutely loved the ambient atmosphere. I would highly recommend the A La Carte menu due to its vast choice and excellent value. I opted for a Butternut Squash Risotto to start and Zack went for a pasta dish - both fantastic choices in our opinion.

The food was incredible and after three courses and a bottle of wine we were satisfied to say the least!  The restaurant staff simply couldn't do enough for us and they really took the time to go through specific dishes and recommend their favourites.

BSpa / BGym Facilities: 

Needless to say I didn't hit the gym during our visit. I think I'm secretly still in Christmas mode and in denial that I need to get myself back to the gym! However, on my way to the spa I popped into the gym to have a look (look being the operative word) and found it to be extremely well-equipped and more importantly, spacious.

My favourite hideaway however, was the spa - the perfect spot for rest and rejuvenation. I spent the majority of my evening in the jacuzzi, located outside on the third floor! It was an odd sensation to sit outside in warm water with a freezing cold breeze in the air, but, I felt so content! A day pass is available for £35, which I think is very reasonable. I didn't have time to have any treatments but next time I am in need of a little pampering I know where to go! 

The Local Area

Weybridge is actually one of my favourite locations and right on my doorstop, I think it is a lovely area! Aside from the obvious attractions (Mercedes Benz World), Weybridge has a range of lovely little boutique shops on offer for you keen shoppers like myself! There are also classic coffee shops and restaurants to keep you occupied if you fancy leaving the hotel for a few hours.

If you are looking for a valentines break, I would strongly recommend this hotel! A spa day for us girls and a driving experience for the men - sounds perfect to me.

If you have any more questions surrounding my stay please do not hesitate to ask me! If any of you visit, let me know your thoughts!!

Winter styling..

Sunday, January 01, 2017

Hi girls! 

Can you believe we are in 2017?! Every year seems to fly by nowadays - it's crazy! I had such a wonderful 2016 and I am incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities that were given to me! I can't wait to work on bigger things this year! 

Anyway, moving on to today's post! As we all know, winter is definitely here and I must admit, I am NOT a fan of the cold weather in the slightest. I often find that I have to focus on outfit planning in winter to ensure I am both stylish and more importantly, warm! As a result, I wanted to share with you two of my go-to favourite looks by* to keep you on-trend this season! 

Grey and black are my ultimate winter colours and you can almost guarantee that every outfit I wear features one of the two colours! I love this outfit purely because of the faux fur detailing - it just adds a bit more of a wintry feel to the outfit.

Faux Fur Gilet: Available here.
Biker Trousers: Available here.

My second go-to look is possibly the most simple yet eye-catching! A leather jacket paired with biker trousers - the perfect combination. I love the embellished detailing on this jacket - it really adds glam to what is a relatively simple look. Very have really nailed it with this jacket and it really gives a high-end feel without the price tag! The look itself is also very versatile and can be adapted based on the occasion. 

Embellished leather jacket: Available here.
Biker Trousers: Same as the first look! 

I hope I have given you some inspiration for this season!
