Well, hey there! Today's post is brought to you courtesy of John Wayne. Oh no, sorry, that's just me in double denim. It's always a risky look to go for - we all remember that iconic Britney and Justin denim explosion - but I love it too much not to give it a try. Trying to find boyfriend jeans that fit well is is my Everest (thank you curiously mismatched waist to thigh ratio), so I was pleasantly surprised to find these distressed badboys from Hollister fit like a glove. Huzzah! It's not somewhere I've ever shopped for jeans before but oh lordy do they have a vast selection of gems on the go. I popped it on with one of their shirts to finish off my multi-denim look, as well as my little bandana (you thought I was joking about the John Wayne thing, didn't you?) and some heels to make it clear to any passers-by that I am, in fact, a woman.

5 Happy Things (A.K.A My July Favourites)

                             

Hello (again - you just can't get rid of me today, can you?). I've just uploaded my 5 Happy Things video - basically a monthly favourites but I'm not good enough at life to do one every month - featuring all the beauty products, music, films and books that I've been a-lovin' recently, so I thought I'd share it with you over here because A) sharing's caring and b) I thought (hoped) some of you might be interested. Anyone?

Ok, bye. For real this time.

I'm baaaack

RAY BAN sunglasses via The Sunglasses Shop | TOPSHOP shirt dress (old, similar here, here & here) | SENSO glitter ankle boots | BANDANA so old I can't remember (try eBay!) | ZARA bag

Wahey, here are some fresh new snaps taken by my lovely Amber Rose. We shot in and around Shoreditch this time, in its secret little lanes that wouldn't be out of place in a Harry Potter film. It was 26 degrees that day (ie sweaty betty weather) so I popped on my floaty shirt dress - which also helped hide my post-cooked-breakfast baby belly - and my new round Ray Bans. If you asked me my favourite Ray Ban shape I'd always have gone for the Wayfarer but, as of late, I've really been enjoying these round badboys (as well as these ones, actually). Don't tell my Wayfarers I said that though.

On a separate (ish) note - how amazing are these Senso booties? I really struggle to find boots that are the right fit due to my abnormally narrow (read: weak) ankles, so these ones are an absolute dream come true thanks to the elasticated sock-like top to them. Oh, and they're glittery. Need I say more?

A quick, easy make-up look

ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear foundation 

Hello, hello! I decided to experiment a little with my good old friend make-up last week - green eyeliner AND purple lipstick and it's not even Halloween, who do I think I am - and had a few people asking on Twitter/Instagram what products I'd used so thought I'd put together a quick post listing them all. OBVIOUSLY this is far from my standard (read: boring) daily make-up, so let me know if you'd like me to put together a more detailed post on what I use day-to-day and I'll get on it!

Lovebox 2015 Photo Diary

P7170930


Oh hey there! As you may or may not remember, a couple of weeks ago me, Leanne and Yanin headed along to Lovebox festival with the lovely Urban Outfitters, so I thought I'd put together a little festival photo diary from our time there. Don't expect to find any festival clich├ęs in there, like plastic cups held in the air, peace signs or photos of wristbands though. No siree, none at all..

Oh wait, yes, there we have it.. festival cliche number 1. If you fancy getting very, very drunk then take a shot every time you spot one in the following post.

P7170917
Catching up with Victoria and Carly (that's two peace signs so another two shots)

P7170904
Jackpot. The classic wristband photo.

P7170973
The sweetest little cocktail truck which was responsible for a whole lot of dodgy dancing that weekend. Mainly from myself and Leanne.

P7170955
Just call us The Sunglasses Squad. No-one?

P7170998
Classic cocktail in the air shot means another drink for you (if you're still standing that is).

P7171006
Ohh yes. A shot of the stage; I think that definitely counts as another shot.

And we're back at what was basically our home for the weekend. The good old cocktail van.

P7181247
Hanging with Kate and Emma (and, more importantly, Emma's fantastical boobies)

P7181258
Food from Kurobuta! Things are a little hazy from this part - ahem - but I can definitely confirm the chilli seabass was incredible. Not your usual festival meal, eh?

P7181177
And there we have it! I hope you lot like a photo diary because, as you can tell, I'm fairly fond of putting them together. And thank you so much for all your lovely feedback on my GF guide to Paris, if it helps even one gluten intolerant person from shitting themselves then I've done my job.
