Get The Look: Little Mix 'Black Magic' Style

I have been a huge admirer of Little Mix, both style and music-wise since they started on the X-Factor, and have avidly followed them the past few years! Since the start of their career their style has changed a lot, and matured, and they are now fashion style icons to lots of people. Their amazing style is illustrated in their music video for 'Black Magic', so I thought I'd do another 'Get The Look' post so that you can achieve their 'Black Magic' style along with their looks from this week at Radio 1's Live Lounge -- enjoy!

ASOS 'Save For Later' Items

I am absolutely obsessed with ASOS and love scrolling through every section of the website to see what they've got! As some of you may know, they have a wonderful 'save for later' button which you can use to compile a list of items you don't want to buy right this second, but can keep an eye on easily without having to search for it. It's almost like the half-way point to adding it to your basket!
I use this 'save for later' button a lot when on their website, so my saved items box gets filled up very quickly. And although half the time it's just me playing with the idea of buying them (because I have no money for such things) I still love collecting them up. waiting for the day when I can splash out on a ASOS order! 
So... when sorting through my saved items box the other day I thought I'd share with you all just what items I'm saving for later!

Current Favourite YouTube Channels: Top 5

I watch a hell of a lot of YouTube, and love nothing better than spending the day catching up with all the videos from my favourite channels! YouTube has also been a big influence for my blog, so I thought I'd share with you all my current top 5 YouTube channels! 

Gabriella Lindley, also known as 'VelvetGhost' has two channels, a main channel and a vlogging channel. Her main channel, linked: here, is a lifestyle/beauty/music channel and is really fun and interesting, but in this post I want to talk about her vlogging channel! I love her vlogs usually, but recently I've become obsessed with them and never want to miss one because they're just awesome! Gabby is totally relatable, fun, and has the most adorable cat Nelly - which is a bonus for me because of my obsession with cats! For all these reasons it has entered into my current top 5 favourite YouTube channels-- go have a watch!

19th Birthday!


Being Tourists In London

This last weekend I went to London again to stay with my sister and meet up with our Scottish cousins. Seeing as our cousins don't go to London as often, we decided it would be fun to do all the tourist-y things around London and go sightseeing.

Packing for a Weekend in London

When this post goes up I will already be in London, but before I head off I thought I'd do a quick post on what I've packed for the weekend away! My packing style is get everything out and then narrow it down- especially when it comes to clothes as it takes me ages to decide on outfits to take with me- however, this weekend I really wanted to pack light as I'm travelling on my own, and to my surprise I think I did quite well...ish!

Gluten Free Crumpets | Review

I have always loved the look of crumpets, and been jealous when my family would buy them for their breakfast. This meant when I discovered gluten free crumpets were a thing being sold in supermarkets, I was super happy and couldn't wait to give them a try! So far I've seen two out on the market (though there may be others I've missed) and I decided to try both out and write a comparison review on them. 

Marks & Spencer Gluten Free Crumpets...

The Church Street Townhouse | Gluten Free Restaurant Review

Whilst in Stratford-Upon-Avon on Sunday, we went to the Church Street Townhouse restaurant there. My Dad had been researching Gluten Free restaurants in the area, and found their menu online, and I have to say how impressive the menu was for gluten free options. Not only was the food lovely, but the service was great, and the restaurant decor itself was really beautiful and quirky, which made the whole thing extra special!

A Day In Stratford-Upon-Avon


Rufus Wainwright Concert

As an early birthday present from my parents they bought me tickets to see Rufus Wainwright when his tour came to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon. They'd been to see him a few times before in different venues, and had wanted to take me to see him live for a while now, so when the opportunity arose I didn't want to miss the chance!
The concert was just amazing, and I'm so happy I went! Rufus was supported by his sister Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Max Jury, both of whom were amazing too, and have gained fans of their music in me. The venue was just beautiful too, and the relatively compact theatre made for a really intimate, personal and therefore very special concert, and our seats in the circle were just amazing and gave us a great view!

Vogue has been reporting on each of the shows as they've happened and from the photos on their website, I have chosen my favourite 6 collections-- why 6? Because I couldn't narrow it down to a top five haha!

Furry Friends Tag

I saw this tag floating around the other day, and I was really enjoying reading all about other people's pets, so I decided I wanted to do my own post dedicated to my pets!
1) What are your pets names?

My cat is called Ella (named after the main character in the film 'Ella Enchanted'), and my dog is called Samson (named after an island in the Isles of Scilly).

ASOS Boho Vibes...

I have rekindled a couple of obsessions recently. The first obsession being with the brand ASOS - whilst I can't actually afford to buy anymore items since spending my money on my mini Topshop haul in London, I can't stop scrolling through their website and seeing what's there! In fact, I keep adding items to my 'save for later' box on the website, thinking to myself each time that if I find a spare £40 lying around somewhere I will buy one of these products...!
My second obsession is with all things boho/hippie! I LOVE this trend, and have been obsessed with it for quite sometime -  if you follow my pinterest account you will see I have a whole board dedicated to this style! I think this style is especially nice for the Summer months, for holidays, and for the festival season.
So... one day I thought, why not combine these obsessions together, and so here I am sharing with you some of my favourite boho-style products on ASOS to give you a bit of inspiration for the trend this Summer! 

Starting from the top-left:  Knit Halter Top,  Lace Up A-Line Dress, Cheesecloth Crochet Waist Swing Dress, Floral Maxi Skirt With Splits, Wrap Front Top With Ties, First & I Printed Wide Leg Trousers, Shorts In Suede Look, Off The Shoulder Crop Top, Black Flare Jeans With Thigh Rips, Suede Cape Waistcoat With Stud Detailing.

June Favourites

I love reading through people's monthly favourites, in fact they are some of my favourite YouTube videos and blog posts! I've never actually done one on my blog, so I thought I would start following the trend of doing my monthly favourites. I realise I have missed June by 1 day, but I thought I'd squeeze it in now anyway!
