The Glory of Switching Off | Everyday in August (19)

~ The Glory of Switching Off ~

As I sit on the bed writing this, in a hotel room in Berlin I genuinely feel the embodiment of relaxed. Surrounded by a skyline I've never seen before, with people I (hopefully) have never met before, my only worry is what sight I'll be seeing today or what we'd like for lunch. There's nothing like being somewhere you don't know to really feel the glory of switiching off.

Round-up of Everyday in August - So Far! (18)

~ Round-up of Everyday in August - So Far! ~

Well hello there, today is the 18th of August which, to be honest, is a little scary that we're over half way through the month. For me, it feels like yesterday I started Everyday in August (and doesn't feel like that long ago I was planning this whole thing!) So today I simply wanted to do a little round up of my posts so far this month. Unlike I did with Blogmas last year, were I did a weekly round up every Sunday, I'm doing a little round up of the past 18 days.. (minus one day I didn't manage to get a post up.. I'd been on holiday ok leave me alone hahaha)

How I Keep Myself Well & Motivated | Everyday in August (16)

~ How I Keep Myself Well & Motivated ~

I'm all for taking care of myself. I seem to have seen the phrase 'Self-Care' being used a lot on social media and blogging lately and I very much am all for it. At the end of the day, you only have yourself so taking care of your body and keeping well is essentially. With this I always tend to find if I'm feeling well I'm very motivated with it. So today I wanted to write a few points as to how I keep myself Well and Motivated. Of course everyone has their down days, but I do like to be a positive thinker and keep well.

My Journey with Alcohol | Everyday in August (17)

~ My Journey with Alcohol ~
 
As I am only around a month away from my 21st birthday, it will mark 3 whole years of illegally being allowed to buy alcohol. In these 3 years (and a couple of years before #rebel) I feel like I've had an up and down journey with alcohol, from being sociable and loving it whilst in sixth form, to hating the whole 'going out clubbing' thing - to now, loving it/ hating it all at the same time.. its been up and down but I finally feel like I've found how to enjoy myself, whether alcohol is involved or not..

Á Paris Part 2 | Everyday in August (15)

~ Á Paris Part 2 ~
 
Welcome back! Ready for yet more photos of my trip to Paris? COURSE YOU ARE. Today I have some key places we visited on day 3 & 4 of our trip. This included the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg, Notre Dame and the ~original~ Diptyque store. Unlike the previous day (day 2), it didn't pour down with rain for the final 2 days of our trip, so these photos are a little less dull (although I have tried to edit the other photos to appear brighter!) hope you enjoy my little snippets of Paris..

Á Paris Part 1 | Everyday in August (14)


~ Á Paris Part 1 ~
 
After going on about it for what felt like an age, I finally went on my early-birthday-present trip to Paris, AAAH. In all honesty it was the best trip I've been on for a long long time and I completely fell in love with the city. Me and my mum spent 4 (long) days there, walking miles and exploring everywhere we could think of. Despite the rain (yeah it kinda rained for 2 days lol) it didn't dampen our spirits as we saw everything from the Eiffel Tower to the Arc De Triomphe as well as the less ~busy~ places.. I really did have the BEST few days.

The Feminism Edit | Everyday in August (13)

~ The Feminism Edit ~
 
 Girl Power? Every time. More and more am I seeing these types of t-shirts about. 'Feminist. 'We Should All Be Feminists'. 'Feminism'. More and more is it being used, less and less is it being stigmatised. We should obvious all be feminist. Why should you think you shouldn't be. Men and Women are literally equal, why would you think otherwise.

A Parisian Stationary Haul | Everyday in August (12)

~ A Parisian Stationary Haul ~
 
Whilst in Paris this week, I seemed to have picked up quite a few stationary bits. Whether I ~actually~ need them or not is another question, but when I saw these bits of stationary sitting pretty in various shops, I couldn't resist. Do I really need paperclips with pom-poms on? Probably not. But when you're buying things with a different currency, the price of things seems to be irreverent. 12 euros for a small notebook? - seems fine when you have no idea how much 12 euros is in pounds HAHA.

My Favourite Instagrams of the Moment! | Everyday in August (10)

  
  ~ My Favourite Instagrams of the Moment! ~
 
Now it seems lately that Instagram seem to be on their own little self destruct mission. It seems once they change their algorithm Instagram well and truly went to shit. No, I don't want to see a photo from 3 days ago, how about one from 3 minutes ago first?! So, to spread a little positivity, I thought I'd put a quickly little post together on 5 Instagram blogging ladies I have loved lately, with every post or Insta stories I have found myself liking most or (if I forget from time to time) simply scrolling through their feed simply thinking 'how have they made that photo look so nice?!!' ..

Let's Talk 'Brows | Everyday in August (9)

 ~ Let's Talk 'Brows ~ 
Now it seems, since Cara Delevingne graced the stage a few years back with here truly uh-mazing thick eyebrows, the world has gone crazy. Every gimmick imaginable has been dreamed up to achieve the perfect brow. Gone are the days of the 90s were it seems thin/ over-plucked brows were the ones, now its all about the thick, full of life 'perfect brow'. I of course haven't been blessed with the best of brows, but they aren't as sparse as they could be -  overall I wish there were more hair there but I can live with it. Today I wanted to show you my very minimal brow routine that, admittedly does not take a life time, but I seem to find it never lets me down...

~ A Few Pieces on My Topshop Wishlist ~

Fantasy shopping, a sport I am near Olympic level good at. The past few weeks I seem to have really really loved EVERYTHING on the Topshop website. Whether it be every top in the 'New In' section or the pretty bags in the 'Accessories' bit.. everything is just making me cry slightly because I really do need to start saving my pennies now. BUT, there's no harm in having a little browse from time to time is there?!

The Book List #9 | Everyday in August (7)

~ The Book List #9 // Everyday in August Day 6 ~

Everyone loves a good book, agreed?! There's nothing like tucking up in bed, all cosy (whether it be Summer or Winter) and getting lost in the storylines, the characters, the plot - forget real life. For a while now, I'll admit, I haven't been in the reading mood. Each night I wanted to sleep, not read. But, having wandered into WHSmith on a whim, I spotted 'Paris for One' by Jojo Moyes. Being a fan of her previous work (surely you've heard of Me Before You) I couldn't resist picking it up and getting struck right in..

Staying Safe in The Sun | Everyday in August (6)

~ Staying Safe in The Sun ~

We are not all blessed in life. Some are graced with that sun-kissed skin that once placed in front of the beating sun, continues to darken and a sudden glow appears... and some like me are given pasty skin that burns when even looking at the sun through the window. In keeping with this, I thought I'd put a post together about my best friend when the summer sun hits: Sun Cream. Tips on how I ~try~ to avoid those painfully red shoulders or Rudolph-like nose that I have so often developed as a child.. Some of these tips you may know, some may be brand new news, but having been that person who has been as red as a post box in the past, I feel like nowadays I have some tips as how I avoid it.

~ For Those Summer Nights ~

Self-admittedly I am a girly girl. If every I see anything pink - my eyes are drawn. So, with this in mind, imagine me when I was scrolling through the NEXT sale last week. This Mango dress popped up, in all its fuchsia pink glory for near enough half the price off. Yep, as you can tell I quickly snapped it up.

 ~ Let's Drink Frosés ~

I've had it in my head for quite a while now. The fact that I NEED to make Frosés - probably says a lot about me really doesn't it, the fact I haven't stopped thinking about making some for of alcoholic cocktail, I just love me some rosé!  As I'm now off for the Summer, making Frosés at 4pm yesterday (a Wednesday haha) seems completely fine - primetime drinking would you say?! So, I reached for the Barefoot (there isn't any better wine brand in my opinion), cut up a few strawberries and despite them not being extremely ~frozen~ as the name suggests (I ran out of ice) the end result was pretty darn nice!

A few weeks back I wrote a post about beauty bits I had picked up lately. Within that post I briefly talked about these two products - the Ouai 'Clean' Shampoo and Conditioner. Having heard lots of people chat about these in the ol' Blogosphere I was ~compelled~ to buy them, when things look pretty on Instagram its very hard not to want a piece of the action..

But, with it now being Day 2 of Everyday in August (Ooo I'm doing well so far!) I thought I'd show you a dreamy playsuit I picked up in Next a few weeks ago. I's comfy, its linen and it striped baby pink and white... that's a very good recipe, agreed?!

Welcome to Everyday in August (& Catch up!)


~ Welcome to Everyday in August ~
 
Well hello there, or rather, welcome back! My blog has been a little quite over July, my life seemed to actually be quite busy for once, full of exciting things, so the blog took a back seat.. BUT, as you can tell from the title, this is all going to change, as I plan to blog every day in August! I say 'plan' because there is always that doubt in the back of my mind that it wouldn't be possible. Saying that though, I managed Blogmas last year while simultaneously working full time.. so as I've now finished my full time job this 'Everyday in August' should be a doodle ~she says~

New Beauty On The Shelf..

~ New Beauty On The Shelf.. ~


Rather then saying 'New Beauty On The Shelf' I really should be saying 'New Beauty On My Shelf' because as ever I'm late to whatever trend is happening.. these products I've picked up recently perhaps are already established.. or maybe by some minor miracle I may be a little early to a party. Whatever the conclusion, I went shopping whilst in Liverpool last week and a few purchases were made. For once I was very tame with my debit card but that didn't mean I didn't treat myself to a few bits.. I can't go to a big city and return with nothing...

China Plate.

~ The China Plate Dress ha ~

Now being British, its very hard not to mention the weather right now. If you aren't from the UK, we have been blessed (or cursed) with incredibly hot weather, which, despite it being lovely, no one really knows how to deal with it. My house at the moment is waaay to hot to be comfortable and sleeping at night is difficult... but hey hoo, like I said, as I'm British, as soon as the weather turns cold again we'll begin the complaining all over again... Anyway, as its v v hot at present, I dug deep in my wardrobe and found this beautiful china plate patterned sun dress that I'd completely forgotten about - well, it very much got all the love it deserved over the weekend!

Aaaah comfy clothes, there's nothing quite like them. I may be a girl who does love to dress up from time to time but nothing beats that old jumper or some joggers you live in on Sundays. Over the weekend, said comfies were worn and although I did wear some high waisted jeans (because I did have to leave the house at one point) my comfy-as-hell joggers were soon worn afterwards. If you can't dress comfortably on weekends when can you, eh?!

Why Blogging Is The Best Hobby I've Had // Confidence in Blogging

~ Why Blogging Is The Best Hobby I've Had // Confidence in Blogging ~
 
We've all had hobbies as a child. When I was little I was always up to some kind of after school activity, that being gymnastics or swimming. But as with everything, we all grow up and grow out of things. Don't get me wrong, I've never been a quitter, I've always seen things out for as long as possible. But as I turned from child to teenager, doing any kind of activity suddenly becomes totally 'uncool' - had to keep that street cred. But in little world of Lisa, when the dynamic of school came to an end, I discovered a brand new activity. A hobby were I had no idea what I was doing but soon enough this lil thing called blogging became something I loved to do. Soon enough (and fast forward to right now) I can out rightly say this may be the best hobby I've ever had.

Is 'Blog' Me The Real Me?

~ Is 'Blog' Me The Real Me? ~

I often worry about the way I portray myself online and if its true to how I am really. Should I be bothered? Does it matter if your online persona is the polar opposite of your true self? What do people I have never met in person but follow me online think I am as a person? These are all questions I seem to ponder from time to time. Of course, I hope I am as true to myself as possible but I do often wonder if I'm portraying the life of someone I'm not...

~ A Pop of Pink (& White) for Summer ~
 
Now in Summer, you ~tend~ to have your arms/hands on show more often - well for me anyway, who is incredibly warm blooded and always hot. With this, you do become more aware of your nails. In summer (or end of spring as it is now) I love to constantly switch up my nail colours, this being for a whole load of reasons. The main being that fact that a large majority do not last huge lengths of time and for me, I find painting my nails so incredibly relaxing, do you agree with me? I love to sit down on my sofa and really take my time to paint them - plus its a bonus when you have a clear excuse not to do anything for the next hour 'my nails are drying, I don't want to smudge them!' Today I wanted to talk about 2 nail shades I think will be perfect for the summery months, a tippex-like pure white and a the closes colour to 'Barbie pink' I have ever come across...

Is there anything more summery than yellow? When the sun starts to shine, I don't think there is a better colour to dress in then the colour that best mimics the sunshine. Having always been a fan of bright colours, I am always tempted by yellow. Whilst always being a magpie when it comes to silver, I tend to always be drawn into the bright yellow hues.

When it is gloomy outside and you have the day off work (oh and it is Friday may I add), what is thee best breakfast you can make yourself? PANCAKES. Having bought an actual, real life cookbook a few weeks ago, I've told myself I need to start knowing how to cook things properly and that I have done. Of course, pancakes are the easiest things to make. I have known how to cook them since I was about 5. But, I wanted to learn how tp make them healthier, what toppings work best.. how to make the most of them. So, from the book Eat Beautiful (which is thee most amazingly extra book I own) I made Kiwi Pancakes, using healthier ingredients and tasty toppings..

On the model, it suited her but on me it could've been a different story.. luckily I feel I got away with it, but I did have my doubts. Do I become the chic girl I had hoped for, or do I look like I should jumper on a digger and reach for the hard hat? Answer on a postcard.

Beginning of last month I ticked Edinburgh off my list and this month, I've ticked York off. In my head it was crammed full of sandstone buildings and little cafes - and that is exactly what it turned out to be.. which is basically my idea of heaven.

RED: The Power Shade

~ RED: The Power Shade ~

There is something about red isn't there. The minute the bright hue touches my lips I feel a surge of power. It may be cliché in some sense, but its true, red does bare a lot of power. Red lipstick has always been a love of mine, its eye catching, it adds that #GirlBoss vibe to any outfit.. it can even transform you instantly into a wannabe Parisian when wearing the right type of striped top. Red is the most dramatic on the colour chart, its worn to be seen and my god do I love it.

My Prettiest Spring Frock


~ My Prettiest Spring Frock ~

Due to my rather ~excessive~ spending at the moment, I feel like I have quite a large back log of outfits I haven't shown on this blog yet. Take todays outfit for example, I actually wore this over a week ago when I went shopping with my mum, but its taken me till now to show you... It consists of one of the loveliest dress I own, my treasured trench coat and some silver pumps that are like heaven on my feet. Mix all this together and you get an outfit that some people say (cough *my mum* cough) is a little too overdressed for a shopping trip or other people say (cough *me* cough) is perfectly fine for a day out.. please welcome the prettiest frock I own!

Transitioning PROPERLY Into Spring/ Summer.

I don't know if you have noticed, but the sun has began to shine more frequently lately.. can we ~officially~ call it Spring? It may be Spring on paper but you could be mistaken for it being mid- November at times. BUT, it as been a little warmer and a little bright as of late, therefore my wardrobe needs to transition.. properly. I'm talking taking out all the thick knits, pushing the darks to the side and welcoming in the bright yellows. My wardrobe, this weekend had a completely overhaul and boy am I feelin' good right!

If we were all fortunate to be blessed with skin as smooth and clear as the Kardashians, I wouldn't be writing this post. But, that's not how life is, is it?! Ever have those days were life get's to you and the only thought you have is 'If I were a Kardashian, I won't have to deal with this!' - Well I do. One of those 'things' we all unfortunately have to deal with at some stage is acne. That bloody acne. It may spring up during 'that' time of the month, it may be a continuous thing. It may have come and gone, or it may not have even started yet. Whatever box you tick, its never nice.

My Everyday Makeup + Cruelty Free Update

~ My Everyday Makeup + Cruelty Free Update ~
 
Well, well. Its been a while since I've done a proper, all out makeup post - makeup just doesn't seem to float my boat much anymore. Of course, I do still wear it, but buy it? I'd rather buy a new pair of shoes. But, what I have been sticking too when a makeup purchase is made, is that it is cruelty free. Back in Feb 2016, I did this blog post and every since, when a makeup post has been done or if I've spoken about makeup in general, I've probably mentioned I've stop buying from brands that test on animals. As you can see in this post, my make up bag isn't completely cruelty free yet - I'm still using up some products (because this gal aint made of money to buy everything again) but if I have needed to make a purchase, its been a cruelty free one. So, in todays post I just wanted to have a general chat, what's new in my bag, what I like to use for everyday and what's on the list for when my bank balance is a little bit healthier.. enjoy!

Of course, this isn't a true representation of my life, if fact my life is way more boring and non-existent; just imagine a groundhog-day routine of waking up a 7.30am, working, coming home, wasting time on the internet and going to bed.. WOW. If I were to blog about that I doubt not very many people would be interested, so I'll look back at the photos I've taken, the questions I've asked and answered as well as some outfit's I've put together.. because my life at the weekend does get exciting sometimes...!

Three Dresses & A Whole Lotta Sunshine


 ~ Three Dresses & A Whole Lotta Sunshine ~
 
 I'll admit, I can be very British when it comes to the weather. Forever am I commenting if its sunny, if its cloudy and boy do I say a lot when its raining. Over the weekend, Britain was blessed with the beauty of sunshine, and did we go made as a nation? of course we bloody did! Sunday morning, I woke up to the sun shining, so on went my brand new floral dress and I basked in the warmth.. ok I'll admit, as I live in N. Wales, it quickly went cloudy and it was back to square one.. but that's not the point, there is hope there, spring is starting! So, as the weather is starting to pick up, its officially dress season. I've kindly been sent some beautiful dresses from Boohoo as a part of their Mini Midi Maxi campaign, so as the weather picks up, I'll show you how I have styled and plan on styling some uh-mazing material.. keep reading to see vanity at its highest! hahaha.
