I was invited to my first ever Christmas in July on Wednesday, and I really enjoyed it so I thought I would share my photos over here! The event gave us a sneak preview into the fashion, lifestlye and beauty items that will be sold in Debenhams stores this festive season, and although it's still summer, it really has left me excited for what's to come!
Shorty Cocktails - The Ten Bells, Spitalfields
If there's one thing I love, it's a perfectly blended cocktail so I was excited to be invited down to launch of The Ten Bells 'Upstairs' bar to learn all about the new cocktail craze they're bringing to London-the Shorty. What is the Shorty, you may ask, well basically they're mini cocktails that really pack a punch.
I've always thought I had a pretty good skincare routine, and although I do make sure it's cleansed, toned and moisturised twice a day I still seem to suffer from breakouts and clogged pores. Therefore, when I was gifted a set of SkinCeuticals products to try, which are packed full of active ingridients, I was really excited to try them and see if they really helped my skin.
I'm really enjoying this new fashion series on my blog, while it's nice to buy new clothes every once in a while there's nothing I love more than breathing life back into old ones. Last week I shared a beautiful gold jumper and this week it's a vibrant purple knitted cardigan. You guys may not know, but purple is actually my favourite colour, and wearing it always makes me feel really happy! I think it goes perfectly with this printed midi dress and red platform sandals.
Camden Spirit Awards-The Stables Market, Camden
Working at a local paper has been exhausting, but luckily I managed to muster up enough energy on Wednesday evening to head down to the Stables Market in Camden to meet the three lucky winners of the Camden Spirit Awards and have a browse through their current collections.
My mum recently had a clear out of her wardrobe, and I just couldn't resist going through what she was throwing out and seeing if I could make it work in my own wardrobe! I found a few pieces that I now really love, and so I thought I would share them on a weekly basis with you guys. This week's piece is a beautiful sparkly gold jumper that I couldn't help but rescue. I love teaming it with my vintage Lee jeans and these heels for a relaxed, summery feel.
Last week I was invited down to Omniya, which is on a road opposite Harrods(!), to try out one of their Repair, Restore and Replenish facials* that has been developed and created by senior skin specialist Debbie Costello. I met Debbie at a SkinCeuticals launch a couple of weeks ago and after having a quick chat with her, I couldn't wait to try out the new treatment! I arrived at Omniya after a hectic few days of working for a PR company, travelling to and from Exeter for my graduation and attending a few press events, so it was really lovely to be able to relax and treat myself to a little bit of a pamper.
I can't quite believe I'm sitting here writing about the fact I've graduated from Uni, the three years have really flown by! I started this blog halfway through my first year, and since then not only has my blogging style changed (for the better) but I also feel like I've definitely grown as a person.
If there's one thing I love buying in the sale, it's shoes. I got both of these for half (or less) of their original price and I think they're going to be perfect for A/W! I knew I wanted to add a few new pairs of flat shoes to my wardrobe (especially as I now spend a lot of my time walking around London!) and I think these two are going to go really well with what's already in my wardrobe.

Honestly, I'm really lazy with bodycare. My usual routine consists of using shower gel every day and occasionally using a scrub and some moisturiser, but as it gets hotter and sunnier I like to take more time looking after my body and I find body scrubs are essential for keeping my skin soft.
