5th House PR Press Day

Hey guys sorry for the gap in posts! I've been so busy with uni work and interning I literally haven't had a spare moment but I have lots to post about so next week I will be bombarding you haha. So on Wednesday I popped down to the 5th House PR press day on my lunch break, it's nice being able to actually pop in to press days etc. I was introduced to some amazing brands, some I knew of and some I hadn't heard of before but it was great to learn a bit about each brand or designer. I thought I'd share with you a few images of my favourite collections...

Bill & Mar - I loved every single piece from their new collection, so many interesting styles and prints.

More Bill & Mar - I fell in LOVE with the green print here, the dress is stunning!

Stylestalker - I've been a fan of this brand for a while so it was great to see the new pieces 


LeiVan Kash - I took a big liking to these necklaces and apparently Suki Waterhouse is a fan!

I've actually spotted this brand 'Jaded' in Topshop before, the prints are really fun and would make great festival pieces!

My favourite discovery was this brand - Shakuhachi. The collection is stunning and each piece has an interesting detail to it, they use such an interesting array of fabrics. Definitely my new favourite brand! 


So overall I was really impressed with all the amazing brands and designers, I took a lot of photos and it was hard to condense it down to one post! Have you seen anything you like in particular?

Wishlist: Basics

There are SO many things I want to get my paws on at the moment it was hard to whittle them all down into one post but these are some of the things on my list. They're all staple items, I'm trying to invest more into basics that are timeless rather than too many trend type pieces. I really want a nice, crisp white shirt and this one from Whistles is perfect for daytime as I don't think it looks to formal or office like. I say these are all 'staples' but I suppose the phone case is more of a want than a need haha, I think it's really cool though. There's some other ones too that have just landed on ASOS so if you're a Markus Lupfer fan check them out! 

I've finally managed to break my skinny jean habit as I've been living in my Glamorous boyfriend jeans (featured here). I think it's time to invest in another similar style, these new Topshop 'Hayden' jeans are just what I'm after. I think they'd look fab with the Bertie sliders! I've nearly convinced myself that I need everything on here, whats your favourite?

Outfit: Pastel Blue Coat

IMG_1485 IMG_1473 IMG_1497 IMG_1475 IMG_1490

Helloo, I took these on Sunday when it was a dull and dreary day but my only chance to snap any photos this week. I've been after a pastel blue coat for absolutely ages, I could never find the right one or when I did they sold out. I came across this on the Dorothy Perkins site but it had sold out in nearly every size, typical. I thought I'd try BHS (cringe!) as I know they stock some DP's bits, and there it was the last one on the site in a 10! I'm over the moon with it. So considering I never wore these trousers I'm wearing them a lot recently, they're still in the sale on ASOS for just £11. My top is new from H&M, I picked it up in the Oxford Circus store, they had a pair of matching jersey culottes that I keep thinking about too. I don't think I'd wear them together but they look nice as separates. Hope everyone has a great rest of their week!

New In: Triangl Marshmallow Underwear Set

IMG_1432 IMG_1448

Hello! Today I thought I'd post about the amazing swimwear/underwear brand Triangl. They caught my eye a while back when I saw their gorgeous sets on Instragram, so I was more than thrilled when they got in touch asking if I'd like to receive a set. I opted for the Lucie set in 'Marshmallow'. I was torn between this and the plain black but I thought this would be cute under mesh tops as you can see the detail better. They don't come in particular bra sizes so I went for the small in both, they fit me fine but they do have a size guide if you're unsure. What do you think? Are you a fan of Triangl?

So a little life update, I just completed my first week interning in the press office of Dune, so many gorgeous shoes! I'm there for three more weeks and then it's back to uni assignments and exams *boo*. After uni is out the way I'm heading back to Oh My Love (I interned for them last summer) for a few weeks, and then I'm off to Barcelona! A VERY busy couple of months ahead but I'm loving it, I think this summer will be a gooden!

Outfit: Wildfox Couture Tee

IMG_1417 IMG_1421 IMG_1399 IMG_1379 IMG_1403

What a fabulous day of weather its been today! I thought I'd steer away from black for once and wear some lighter shades. I have this trench in black too but it's so cheap I thought I'd pick up the cream as well, I've also spied a navy version but I'm trying to ignore that. I sorted through a load of summer clothing the other day and came across this Oh My Love skirt, I forgot how much I like it, it's so comfortable. My shoes are a new purchase, they're from ASOS and were only £35 which I thought was really good, I wanted a pair that I could wear in the day and these are perfect. Last but not least, my tee from Wildfox, I've adored this brand for years so I was thrilled to be able to choose a piece from the website. Their tee's, sweatshirts and knits are the perfect california-cool look - slouchy but cute!

This week has been pretty manic, my project for uni (we opened a pop up shop in the town) took off on Monday so I was in Northampton for a couple of days at the start of the week. I've then been getting as much work done on my assignments as I can, I start my internship at Dune on Monday so I want to be on top of things. I'm getting really excited for summer now, and I booked a trip to Barcelona with Charlie for June time so I'm counting down the days!
