Coconut Lane UK - Haul

I have recently discovered the most amazing online shop for pretty quotes and marble accessories! I came across Coconut Lane on Instagram and I was seriously in awe of their gorgeous designs and "instagrammable" imagery.
They have so many different designs to choose from and a quote to fit everyone. They also do beautiful accessories and homeware.

Of course, I had to get my favourite quote.

OOTD - The Grey Duster

Although summer seems to be clinging on at the moment, i'm so ready for Autumn/Winter fashion. 

I have already been getting a few pieces ready for the colder weather and I wanted to show you my favourite jacket at the moment - The Duster. This trend has been around for quite a few seasons now and they are the perfect "in-between" jacket, especially with how unpredictable the weather is.

This duster is another one of my Primark bargains, it was only £20! For such a wardrobe staple, it's so affordable and they also do it in Black and Nude.

Dinner party with friends

A dinner party is the perfect excuse to eat way too much food and drink cocktails in the comfort of your own home. I love nothing more than spending time with friends and catching up on everything. 

I received these fabulous cocktails in the post last week and I couldn't wait to try them, especially as Freya and I are big fans of cocktails! Funkin' are a brand I had heard of before and I love their branding/packaging. They are pre-mixed cocktails, to which you just add alcohol. They tasted like we had made them from all the separate ingredients, they were so good! My favourite was definitely the Raspberry Mojito.

Lash Lifts - step by step

As some of you may know, I am a nail and lash technician in between being at university. I trained in lash lifts this year and it is such an amazing treatment I wanted to explain to you all what it does and how the procedure is carried out.

There are many different systems that people use for lash lifts, I trained in Shrewsbury at Dragonfly Beauty and Training Studio in the system "Dolly Lash".

It is a treatment that quite literally lifts your lashes upwards, which makes such a difference, especially if you have really straight lashes. It makes the lashes look so much longer without damaging your natural lashes. 

I have seen a huge increase in clients for this treatment over the summer. It is a brilliant alternative to eyelash extensions as it is so low maintenance. They stay lifted for around 6-8 weeks, then start to drop naturally. They are also quite a quick treatment, taking around 45 minutes.

The pressure to succeed

From the age of fourteen when you have to sit down and choose your GCSE options, you are expected to have an idea of what you want to do when you 'grow up'. Then, when you leave school and have to pick your subject(s) at college, you have to narrow your choices down even more!

Most people have a dream of what path they want to go down when they are very young, for example, I wanted to be a pop star, just like a lot of girls aged five. Some people do follow that path their whole life, and I think it's amazing when people can do what they dreamed of when they were younger. In a way, they are really lucky because they've known exactly what options they needed to take and what choices to make, in order to get there.

OOTD - Festival Vibes

I love festival outfits, and although I haven't been to any festivals myself this year, I love seeing everyone's photos of what they wore. It's one of the only places you can wear things that wouldn't usually go together, put your hair on the top of your head, spread glitter all over your face, and still look good. 

I was so jealous of everyone at V festival this year, especially as it was only down the road from us. But, as you saw in my "glamping" post (read here), I just can't do camping.

I thought I would put together a couple of outfits I would have worn if I'd have gone to a festival this year (minus the heels).

Both outfits are from Esperar Boutique in Shrewsbury. There are so many summery outfits in the sale there now!

Date Night Box Review

Jack and I had a very exciting delivery last week, something I have wanted to try for ages! "Date night in a box" is such a brilliant concept, it means you can have a night in together, with everything provided for you.

This was the contents of the box, as well as instructions on how to use it all.
The box is called "Chocolate Heaven" and is inspired by the saying "life is like a box of chocolates", which is a really nice idea.
