And the sun has appeared! After a very, very long winter, spring has finally arrived. I’ve been trying to dress more summery recently with bright colours and floral patterns, but I’ve been slightly standing out due to the dreary weather. Now, fingers crossed, I’ll be able to dress more weather appropriate.
I’ve been super busy (I know, I know…) so I haven’t been able to blog much. I’ve been trying to get around to filming something too, but people who don’t blog don’t really get how long everything takes. If it’s an outfit post you need to put a bit of effort into the outfit, take the photos, edit and then upload the post. And when you’re filming, that takes 10 times longer, especially the editing side of things and then uploading on a super-slow broadband speed (Thanks EE!). I’d love to know how bloggers with a full-time job keep up the blogging on the side too, especially those with a 45min+ commute either way. I know there are ore and more full-time bloggers/Youtubers, who solely do this, but if you have a 9-5 job as well it can get a little draining. I’m an editor for an online retailer, so the last thing I want to do is create more content, and I hate doing anything half hearted…
Anyway, I don’t want to rant. Let’s have a look at the clothes! The midi/maxi floral dress was found in a charity shop last year. I love it, especially in the warmer months. The yellow jumper was a New York find, which makes it over a year old now (wow, I really want to go back to New York!). The boots are Topshop via eBay, and are soooo comfy. I have the black version too, which you’ve probably seen in an outfit picture or two, and I love to war them for work. Finally, the necklace is a Primark special and the lipstick is Ronnie Red by MAC… Lush.

If you haven’t been watching my YouTube videos, you won’t have seen my new hair! I had it all cut off and to be honest I’m still getting used to it. It’s not that I necesarily wanted to go shorter, it’s just the ends were awfully dry and damaged, and I wanted my hair to get into better shape. Something dramatic needed to be done! Hopefully this will mean my hair will grow quicker and I’ll have long shiny locks in no time… Here’s to hoping!
I took a little trip to Primark and picked up this gorgeous coral maxi skirt. I actually have the same style in about 2 or 3 different colours, and they’re great for the warmer months (if it ever warms up…!). For now though, layer it up and pop on your favourite pair of boots. These were kindly given to me by Barratts, and the deep brown hue is great for a transitional wardrobe. The heel is perfect for me too; tall enough to add some height into the mix but chunky so they’re easy peasy to walk in.
Well hello there! Yes, I’ve had time to film another video or two. No, I haven’t had time to take outfit photos. Somehow it seems I can’t multitask. At all.
These are some bits and pieces I’ve used up recently, and what I think about them. I’m becoming quite a beauty pro it seems.
It’s a long weekend here in the UK, and it’s extremely exciting! Yesterday Callum and I wandered into town to hit Primark (is it me or are the ladies clothes really crap at the moment?) and then onto BRGR CO for a fantastic burger and fries. Today’s been a lazy one, although I filmed this didn’t I? Tomorrow we’re off to Cambridge for a family Easter Sunday, and then hopefully another lazy day on Monday before I have to return to the office while Callum has another 2 weeks off work. Lucky duck.
I’m back on Youtube with a big old beauty haul! Because of all the 3 for 2 deals in boots and other newness, I seem to have bought quite a few things recently! I picked up a few bits from the new MAC Archie’s Girls collection, as well as the new MUA Undress Your Skin range. I also have gone a tad crazy on new drugstore lip and nail products… Well, go and have a look at my video to see what I’ve splurged on…
If you have a Youtube channel, leave your link in the comments! I’m after some new things to watch.
