Payday Treat

So, I don’t know about you but I think after a hard month’s slog the least you can do for yourself is indulge in a little retail therapy, think of it as a payday treat from you to you! Personally, by the time my bank account is refilled I already have a list as long as my arm of things I need to buy! Don’t get me wrong I shop all month too, but there’s nothing like some guilt free shopping when you can actually afford it and don’t have to justify why you need a suede a line skirt ( you definitely do). Below I’ve put together some of the things I actually do need, I promise!!                                     Those Russel & Bromley loafers are going to be mine one day, I swear to you! In the mean time I’ll settle for the rest of it.. and doesn’t everyone need some marble jewellery in their lives?!

Next ShoeboxJukebox Party

So if you read my post last week you will already know about my win with Next, I was invited to the ShoeboxJukebox party hosted by Next and Company Magazine. This also included a free pair of shoes for me and my guest to wear the the event with the promise of free cocktails, and plenty more opportunities to win shoes galore.. free shoes and cocktails?! an offer no woman can resist! The obvious choice was my sister Lauren from elcy clothing, and after much deliberation we selected our shoes and started planning our outfits! We decided on a smart/casual look so we could take our looks from day to night, we didn’t want to miss out on a day of shopping in London! The theme of the party was around the ShoeboxJukebox, we had to photograph our favourite shoes with the hashtag #shoeboxjukebox, and if your shoes won, the jukebox would go crazy! We had a great time socializing with other bloggers and the girls at Next, and managed to come away with three new pairs of shoes between us, and a good bag to die for! My Outfit –  Jumper: H&M Old| Necklace: Pull & Bear Old | Skirt: Primark | Shoes: Next | Scarf: Zara Old | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Bag: Zara Laurens Outfit – Cardigan: Charity Shop | Dress: Missguided dress tucked in, Old  | Jeans: Topshop Old | Shoes: Next Don’t forget to subscribe to get my posts straight to your inbox!

Grey. On Grey. On Grey

  So after my post last week on spring style inspiration I was inspired to recreate some of the tonal looks. I love the colour grey and most of my item’s of clothing are grey so it’s the perfect colour to try this look with! If I hadn’t seen the pictures on pinterest I wouldn’t have thought about putting together an entire outfit made up of one colour (usually I would try to avoid this) but I think it works really well, especially with the addition of some black accessories! I think this is definitely something I will be using again in the future, I also have a lot of white and a new denim shirt from H&M that’s crying out for a double denim look! The grey works so well because the shades are really similar but just different enough, the different textures sit really nicely together. My t shirt is actually mens, I always favour mens t shirts because they fit just how I want. The fabric is softer and they’re made to hang rather than hug! This ones from Topman yonks ago! These jeans are actually my worst nightmare.. jeggings.. but you can’t tell that they aren’t jeans unless you can see the waistband as they’re made of jean material and not that super stretchy fabric! I got them from H&M for just £12.99 which I couldn’t say no to, I’ve paired them with my bargain of the century mules from Primark for £14.00.. drop what your doing right now and go and get yourself some! Coat: Topshop Old ( Similar Here) | T Shirt: Topman Old (Similar Here) | Jeggings: H&M | Mules: Primark (Similar Here) | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Hat: H&M  From now on I will be posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

My Month on Instagram

  This has been an amazing month for me! It’s the first month really that I’ve fully committed myself to becoming established as a freelance stylist. Actively searching out new work rather than relying on my regular jobs and of course starting my blog! Already I have had so much support which is amazing! So heres a quick round up of my month: I started my blog It was my baby cockapoo Daisy’s first birthday Had an amazing Easter which included winning an egg from Linzi Shoes in their Easter competition. I was also totally spoilt with Hotel Chocolat goodies from my lovely boyfriend! The weather turned amazing and the world turned pink and beautiful with all of the pretty blossom Got to work with some lovely brands including eLCy Clothing and Candy Flower UK Won tickets to the Shoe Box Juke Box party hosted by Next and Company magazine. This also included a free pair of shoes for me and my guest! It’s tonight so expect lots more from instagram on this!!!! Sinead x

The ‘IT’ Bag

If there’s one thing that all us girls aspire to it’s to own our very own ‘it’ bag. A piece of the glamorous lifestyles we see in magazines, something that finishes every outfit off and makes us feel a million dollars. Of course the original ‘it’ bag has to be the classic Chanel.. no post about handbags would be complete without it! For most of us the price tags make these just a dream, but the high street is starting to do some pretty great bags with some curiously similar features to designer goodies giving us regular girls our very own slice of handbag heaven! I’ve done some digging and found my favourite high street handbags and paired them with their designer counterparts!   I’m sure there’s some kind of tying trick you can do to make that front bit look the same if you want to go the whole hog! Celine: £1,550 | Mango: £29.99   Balenciaga: £875.00 | Topshop: £36.00 Chanel: SOLD OUT| Zara: £89.99 Mansur Gavriel: SOLD OUT| H&M: £19.99 Chloe: £970.00 | Next: £25.00 Sinead x
