Interior Inspiration

I spend a lot more time than I’m willing to admit planning out my future home, I want to buy a house. Not for the security and to get on the property ladder, no, to decorate it. I think in a previous life I must have been an interior designer and if you look at my pinterest boards (I have one for every room) you’ll start to see the full extent of my obsession for interiors. To indulge my love for interiors a little further, I decided to do an interior inspiration post. Now you can share my love for coffee tables, trays and tiles and if your just as obsessed as me (go on admit it) you can follow me on pinterest and we can share our love together! The thing I struggle with and fully spend time contemplating and worrying about regularly, is which style to go for, there’s so many different styles I like and what if I only have one bathroom, will it be monochrome or will it be blue and white?!   All images are taken from my pinterest boards

Festival Blues

This year I’ve got the festival blues. With Glastonbury kicking off festival season next week there’ll be no avoiding the instagram pictures and facebook posts about what a wonderful time everyone’s having! Not that I’m bitter or anything, but I didn’t manage to get my hands on a golden ticket this year, and there’s something you can’t help but love about not washing for a week and sleeping on the floor. As I was sent some beautiful festival worthy pieces from Candy Flower UK and Ta-Dah I thought I would put together a little festival look with what I would wear if I was going to a festival. We even took a stroll to a nearby field for some authentic photos, how lovely. Obviously no festival look would be complete without a flower head band, it’s practically festival uniform. This lilac one is from Candy Flower UK, I love it because it’s made from wire and ties with a ribbon which means you can make it sit perfectly on your head! I’m still not over this denim skirt so I’m afraid you’ll have to brace yourself for many more outfits including this to come! For my favourite denim skirt’s have a look here. I’ve paired it with this super light and floaty crop top ( I think it’ll also be great for holiday!) which I’ve layered over my striped bralet (which is actually in the sale at the moment here!). Face gems are so pretty and fun to wear but personally, I’d never have the guts to pull them off in real life situations! That’s another reason why I love festivals, you can wear things like this and it’s normal, it’s probably vanilla compared to what other people are doing to their faces!

Day to Night

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit the STALF studio, I met the beautiful owner Paris and got to take a peek at her super stylish studio. I came away with this cropped polo top, which is perfect for me as you know – I love basics! The main thing I love about basics is that there’s so many different ways to wear them! You can dress them up or down and wear the same thing over and over without people noticing ( I hope!). STALF is the perfect destination for you if your a lover of basics like myself! They only run a limited number of each line which makes it feel super special, and all products are one size so no umming and arring about what size you are. The best bit is that they’re all made by hand in the UK, even the fabric is made in the UK! As this style is super versatile, I’ve been living in it recently and thought I would show you how I’ve been wearing it with a day to night look!   I’m loving this STROEM design ring at the moment! I went to visit the lovely Marie who makes all of the jewellery herself by hand last week and came away with this ring. It’s so different to anything else I have or that I’ve seen. Because of the style I can wear it on any finger as well which is perfect for me as I love layering up my jewellery!   Day Outfit Details: Top: STALF | Jeans: Topshop | Ring (left): Cradle Jewellery | Ring (right): STROEM Jewellery | Sunglasses: Old| Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Shoes: Next | Bag: Zara Night Outfit Details: Top: STALF | Skirt: H&M Old | Shoes: Primark | Necklace : JJDR

Over Thinking

  I love this parabell taken from one of my favourite books “Hapiness and how it happens” by The Happy Buddah. For me, the main issue I have with my anxiety is my tendancy to overthink everything. I actually went through a phase of asking everyone else what I should do because I just couldn’t think for myself! How crazy is that?! I have more than just a wondering mind, I get totally lost in my thoughts, going over things that have happened and what would happen if they were different, worrying about things that haven’t even happened yet and probably never will. I found this book so helpful, it teaches you about happiness, which isn’t really a thing.. bear with me! When your happy, you don’t think about it, you just are. When your unhappy, you replay things over in your mind and obsess over whats making you unhappy. So essentially, by learning to clear your mind and ignore your thoughts which are described in the book as “stories”, you can lead a happier and more relaxed life. I’ve found this so helpful, particularly at times when I have been over thinking and stressing myself out to just stop, remember that your mind isn’t you, and notice what your mind is doing. The important thing to remember is to not be angry when you notice your mind being negative, to just notice it and forget it. You can find the brushes I used to make this quote on photoshop here

Current Favourites

I thought I would do a little post this week about what I’m loving at the moment with some of my current favourites. As a lover of all basics, stripe t shirts are part of my everyday uniform. I picked this one up from Zara whilst I was in Santander, massive tip guys – Zara is always cheaper in Spain ( this was 12 euros) so it’s the perfect excuse for some holiday shopping! I’ve had these jeans for ages, they’re good old primark and I’ve personalised them with some sandpaper and scissors! I love ripped jeans at the moment so Primark’s perfect because they’re so cheap, let’s face it your not going to take a pair of scissors to your Tophop Jamies! Check out A Pair and a Spare’s DIY blog for a step by step guide on DIY distressing denim. I love finishing off a girly/summery look with some black ankle boots and chunky accessories to give it a little edge. These H&M suede boots have served me well over the past few months and are still going strong!
