In A Right Ruffle


// I N  A  R I G H T  R U F F L E \\

More often then not, I'll buy an outfit (or even put an outfit together) and think "yeah it's a bit weird.. but I like it"- It's honestly quite funny just how many times this phrase leaves my mouth.. well the outfit in todays post is no different. A two-piece lilac number fresh from Tu at Sainsburys nonetheless - I know right; how many times have you answered 'Sainsburys' when someone asked where your outfit is from?! With their latest Graduate Fashion Week collection just launched, the minute I saw the advert pop up on Instagram for it, I was instantly besotted with this 60's inspired ruffles...

The Book List #12 | Three Things About Elsie.


// T H R E E  T H I N G S  A B O U T  E L S I E \\

Ever read a book so powerful you simply cannot hide the tears? Ever read a book with such a twist you gasp so loud, your mum asks if everything is ok (haha)? Ever read a book so good you cannot read it fast enough, the pages are simply not turning quick enough? - I may be sounding a tad dramatic in this introduction right here, but I honestly can't not emphasise how good this book was. With a combination of mystery, happiness, a touch of sadness and just a little of a thriller mixed together, if you're looking for a book that will both make you smile as well as cry with sadness (and no, completely not in the way you'd think) then this book is one hundred percent is one to pick up this summer...

Layering Playsuits for Unpredictable UK Weather



//  L A Y E R I N G  F O R  U N P R E D I C T A B L E  W E A T H E R\\
This is a collaborative post but all writing and opinions are my own!

Aaaah the British weather, one minute we're jumping for joy at the sight of the sun, next thing we know we're reluctantly digging out the winter coat to fight the chill. Its an inevitable thing in this country which can make choosing what (and how) to wear clothes just that bit more tricky.
One piece of clothing I just love to wear during the Summer, when the sun is actually shining is a Playsuit. For the days when the beach is calling and bare legs are a necessity, there's nothing better. In today's post I wanted to show a few ways I love to style a playsuit, but for those days when you can't quite be sure it'll be warm enough.. you're legs may be out but how to cover those goose bumps? Well, these are a couple of my suggestions.

Pink Trousers & Bunny Ears

// P I N K  T R O U S E R S  &  B U N N Y  E A R S \\

Pink Trousers. They're not for everyone, but they're certainly the ones for me. With us being deep into Spring and on the cusp of Summer, it was time I brought a little colour to my wardrobe. I'll admit, I'm never one for an all black and grey colour palette, but with the long dark winter, the pastels and brights have always been on the back burner. It's only really been the last couple of months that my wardrobe has brightened up. Having spotted these bright trousers all along the high street, it was ASOS' overing of high-waisted-cigarette pink trousers that caught my eye. Thinking they'd be a bugger to style, I've actually worn them a good few times in the past few weeks and boy are they getting a lot more wears in the coming months..

Snippets of... Easter at Home

// S N I P P E T S  O F .. E A S T E R  A T  H O M E \\

And so, as I spend my final few days at home of my Easter Break, before returning to university; I thought now would be a good time to write up a little 'snippets' post of all the great thing I've done over the past couple of weeks. It's been a lovely fortnight at home, yes albeit a little boring, but nonetheless absolutely lovely to catch up with my mum, family and handful of friends. It's actually been a fortnight of eating out a lot (and I don't mean the cheap Weatherspoons breakfast I'm so used to at uni!) as well as lovely day trips and well overdue catchups with school friends I haven't seen probably far too long. As I type this, I feel lucky to have all this when I return home, but my god am I looking forward to having the independent uni life back (& seeing my uni friends!) but for the time being, here's a few Easter snippets of my time back home on Anglesey!
