I wore this on Saturday for the first time, I went to the annual family gathering and as soon as I put it on I fell in love. The bardot neckline is so on trend and I love the fact that it has long sleeves. I love the colour for this season and how effortless it is to wear this dress with anything!

Everyone knows the little black dress is the party staple for every woman, we all have that go to black dress that we wear all the time, but what if you were to switch things up a bit!

Autumn Accessories Wishlist!

Firstly HAPPY FRIDAYY and it’s bonfire night this weekend which means family time and being wrapped up all warm watching the fireworks! I thought today I would share this autumn accessories wishlist of mostly things I’m lusting after right now!


1. New Look Black Leather Look Backpack £19.99

I’ve been so in love with the idea of a backpack for a while now, but what’s making me want one more is the cold weather. Not only are they on trend but it would be so practical right now because I could keep my hands lovely and toastie and still carry a bag without having to worry about it falling off my shoulder!

Wingz Black Lace Sleeves Review*

Happy Halloweeeen! I hope you all had a lovely spooky weekend! On the blog today is a review of the Wingz lace sleeves*

I have always known about Wingz and thought it was such a fab concept. I’ve just never got around to purchasing any because I did not necessarily need or want a plain style. When I saw they now offered lace sleeves, I literally jumped at the chance to get my hands on the black lace set to review.


For anyone who doesn’t know, Wingz are Sleeves that you add to your outfit, they are a one of a kind one piece that have an elasticated band that sits under your bust. The great thing about these is that you are adding sleeves to your outfit, but you aren’t adding an extra layer like you get when you wear a cardigan or a bolero! They come in all different colours and styles to suit everyone’s taste. You can check out the full range on their website here! I’m a UK size 18 at the moment and I chose to get a Size 2 which is to fit UK sizes 18-20.

Boohoo Plus Lily lace detail swing dress!

Hi everyone! It’s the start of yet another week! Im optimistic though as half term looms, it means that work is fairly quiet for me. I’m back today bringing you a review of this lovely Boohoo Plus Lily lace detail swing dress.

What I love about the Boohoo Plus range is that it’s stylish and affordable. It caters for every occasion and there is always something on the site that I’m lusting after. What I find hard to accept with the Boohoo plus range though is the sizing, sometimes it can be so off and has been for me on many occasions!


I recently made an order and chose to buy this swing dress. It’s not something I would normally choose, but I purchaseda similar cami  a few months ago and loved that so thought I would give this a go.

After some drama with the delivery, my items arrived and I fell in love with this dress as soon as I put it on. The sizing was spot on for this I’m happy to report though. I’m wearing a UK 18.

This bomber jacket is everything! I’m loving velvet this season and this jacket is the perfect addition to your night out look, it can be worn time and time again to keep the chill off but still provides that party look!

Yours Clothing Skater Skirt!

Hi everyone, welcome to the start of another week! Today I wanted to share with you this gorgeous outfit, featuring a Yours Clothing skater skirt!

Yours Clothing for me does not always cater for my personal style when I try to shop in store. I see something I love online and then have NEVER found it in store. I spoke to the lady in my local store and asked how they choose what to stock and she told me that the stock changes week by week depending on what sells well. This makes it hard to know whether I will actually like something as I cannot try it on before I buy it, but I took a chance and ordered this skater skirt anyway and I’m glad I did!


I love anything skater style and I adore this skirt! To me it’s a fifties style with a modern twist, the double layer style has pleats the whole way round which make it so full and glamorous!

1. New Look Curves Blue Ripped Skinny Jeans £24.99

I’ve seen other amazing bloggers rocking ripped jeans and always wanted to give them a try. I love these from New Look, they look like they would sit on the ankles (although maybe not on me as I’m so short!!) I feel like they would look cute with frilly socks and cute black shoes! You could team with a gorgeous bodysuit or an oversized shirt for the ultimate autumn look.
