Love Style Mindfulness // Instagram Roundup 2015

I’m sorry about the bad quality of this image!!! I’m pretty awful on the computer and had to paste them all into word and screenshot it! Definitely not the best way! Anyway, I wanted to do a quick roundup – I’ve been super sly though and only started from when I started with the ‘theme’ of my instagram because otherwise it just wouldn’t go. If you’re an instagram OCD like me you’ll sympathise! I can’t wait to share more moments with you guys, I’m trying to put more everyday posts up but I find it hard to remember to take pictures ( which I guess is good because it means I’m enjoying life?) and to be honest the lighting is awful at the moment. Lets all take a minute to pray for summer! If you’re not already then make sure you’re following me on Instagram and Bloglovin’ so you can keep up to date with my goings on!

Fringing X Leather Jacket // Part 1

*Jacket : Your Shores // Jumper : Zara (Old) // Jeans : Next // Boots : H&M (Old) // *Bag : Pauls Boutique  Leather Jacket Love If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you’ll be fully aware of my appreciation for the leather jacket. So it’ll come as no surprise that when outerwear company Your Shores got in contact with me about collaborating for their look book, I pretty much snatched their hands off. As part of the project I got to pick three, yes three, of my favourite styles from the website and I thought I’d share them with you guys, because, well why not? My first choice was the Sandra Fringe Leather Jacket, I’ve always wanted a fringed leather jacket but never found one with just the right amount of fringe. There’s a fine line people! You can probably see by this photo how soft the jacket is!! I think thats the one thing I love about real leather jackets, what’s the point in investing if it looks and feels the same as one from Primark? Can you also make an exception here guys for the fact that it was raining whilst we shot this and I was freezing cold which is why my hands are red and my hair ain’t looking too great!This jumper was 100% my favourite last year and I kind of forgot about it and it was pushed to the back of my wardrobe for the past few months. Sooo I decided to give it a new lease of life, I do still love it but I remember what was so annoying about it. . the goddamn sleeves! The slits look so cool in photos (very aware you can’t see them in this post) but they hang so low and as someone accident prone and clumsy, they are always covered in water or spaghetti sauce. . basically any liquid i’ve walked past, eaten or even looked at. I’m starting to wear these jeans more than my Topshop ones which are so ripped, I know my Mum is praying for the day I throw them out but I kind of love how ripped they are? P.s love the way I talk about my Mum as if I’m 17 and I’m actually 25, I will never grow up and face reality!! Seen as a lot of what I’m wearing here is sold out I’ve made a little widget so you can shop the post – so thoughtful of me! Shop The Look What do you guys think to the pictures? I’ve been working with another photographer and I think they’re amazing! Check out Kirk’s Instagram here and website here! As always, make sure you follow me on Bloglovin’, I’ve got exciting things planned for this year!

Allday Everyday

This is just a quick shot taken in town yesterday by my Mum ( good old Sue Crowe) on the way for coffee, such ladies of leisure! As I’ve promised more posts I thought what’s the harm in doing a few smaller posts? Do let me know what you think guys, if you hate this idea and you’re like “I’d rather just see it on instagram.. oh wait.. I did” then let me know! – slash stop being mean! Anyway, this is pretty much what I wear most days, My favourite jacket and boots with whatever’s hanging around on my bedroom floor underneath. . such a glamorous life I lead! Ignore the white dot on my boots – I spilt toothpaste on them!!!! Massive fail, Sue Crowe’s going to have to come to the rescue on that one too, if your reading this Mum they’re on my shelves please and thank you! I’ve linked below the boots and some of the best dupes I can find for this jacket!! And I just found an uh-mazing copy in Topshop Here! Follow me on Bloglovin‘ and never miss a post!

2016 Goals // Exciting Plans for Me and LSM

2016 New Years Resolutions -Yoga I’ve started Adriene from Yoga with Adriene‘s 30 day challenge. I got into Yoga a bit last year but I find it really hard to stick to excersizing and it was a half hour drive away which meant I just stopped going when my friend wasn’t there to make me feel guilty and drag me along! This is something I can do from home which definitely appeals to the lazy side of me and I feel like if I do it for 30 days then it will become a habit. After January I plan on doing it at least twice a week! -Me time This is a selfish one but aren’t all resolutions kinda selfish? Anyway, I spend a lot and I mean a lot of time on my phone and I’m constantly ‘working’ or plugged into social media. Therefore this year I plan to make time for me, I guess the yoga is classed as me time as well but I’m talking about indulging and relaxing. I don’t remember the last time I sat down and read a magazine, I’ve got a subscription to ELLE and I’ve got no less than 10 copies sat in the corner of my room begging to be read. So each evening I plan to take some time, even if it’s just half an hour, to read a magazine, paint my nails, do a face mask and just switch off. -Read more When I was younger I used to read so much, now I’m lucky if I get through a couple of books a year and I pretty much only read on holidays. From now on I’m going to try and read for half an hour at least before bed each evening! Reading is such a good way of relaxing and getting to sleep and not to mention great for your writing and imagination which, as a blogger can only be a good thing right? 2016 Blogging Goals -Youtube This year I’m doing it! Youtube, watch out there’s a new kid on the block. . well there will be. . if I stop being a big girls blouse and finally sit down and do it. The thing is I’ve got a list of excuses and reasons I can’t do it yet as long as my arm and really all I need to do is start. I will this year, I promise, you have my word! Any one familiar with youtube I would love to hear your thoughts on best ways to edit and if i need some kind of special light for it?! Or is that just for the super youtube pros? Also if you’re just a reader of the blog I would love to hear if you’d be interested in a youtube channel, firstly, would you even watch it? Secondly, what kind of videos would you like to see?! -Bloglovin This year I need to crack Bloglovin, I seriously do not get it! Or should I say i don’t get how to get myself out…

My Fashion Favourites of 2015

So seen as yesterday I did a super personal post ‘2015 // The year in review’ I thought I would do a fashion-y yearly review as well. This is a fashion blog after all. So I’ve picked out my top pieces, some of them new and some of them old, that I wear so often that it’s actually becoming slightly embarrassing. 2015 Fashion Favourites Zara Shearling Coat I feel like this coat was some kind of movement between bloggers. Obviously the original one we were all lusting after was the Acne coat, but Zara did their usual incredible job of making an impeccable dupe. I love the fact that it’s super relaxed and cosy but still looks smart and pretty much makes any outfit look good. If I had to pick one piece in my wardrobe to save in a fire I’m pretty sure this would be it! You can see the coat in action in this post here! Forever 21 Suede coat So this only really just made it in and it’s kind of not really a 2015 favourite – more like I know for a FACT that it’ll be a 2016 favourite. My uh-mazing boyfriend got me this for Christmas and I am obsessed, if I’ve left the house (granted thats not been often) I’ve worn this coat. It’s real suede and the colour is that beautiful rust that I am loving at the moment, plus the tailored style makes any outfit look smart! Forever 21 Denim Shirt This was another Forever 21 purchase – get me, never usually shop there but clearly I should go in more often! I’ve been after the perfect denim shirt for a while. You know when you’ve got a picture in your head of what you want without knowing if said item actually exists let alone where you could buy it? Well i found it, a denim shirt that was heavy denim none of this chambray rubbish, and not fitted, all of the denim shirt’s I see seem to be western style which just doesn’t float my boat. Give me something baggy over something fitted any day! In fact I pretty much wore this whole outfit in this double denim look! Zara Saddle Bag I actually brought this when I was hungover and panic brought an outfit for a meal I was going to (I know what your thinking, who buys a bag for a meal, as I said I was severely hungover). Anyway, I’d been looking at the pink colour way for a while but wasn’t sure I’d use it so I guess when I saw the black one my mind was made up! I love having a small bag as a cross body I feel like it adds more to the outfit than a shoulder bag? It also saves me from filling it with junk which is what I’m prone to doing. As I’m obsessed with this bag at the moment it’s been in so many posts like this one and this one! L’intervalle  Snake Heels Loveeee Snake, I’ve only…
