Outfit: Style For Stroke X Boohoo

IMG_3586
A few weeks back, Boohoo got in touch with me, asking if I'd like to get involved in their 'Style For Stroke' campaign. The premise was simple, a collection of stars and vloggers (from the likes of Tallia Storm to Zoella) are creating slogan t shirts, featuring their unique 'famous last words,' which will be sold to make a stand against strokes. The t shirts are each being sold for £10 on Boohoo, with £5 of each sale going to the Stroke Association charity. As soon as I heard about the campaign I was keen to get involved- my Dad actually suffered a stroke in his 40s, as a young, fit and healthy non-smoker who didn't drink excessively it was a huge shock to the whole family. Fortunately, due to wonderful doctors and nurses and an operation on his heart my Dad is now fully recovered. But other people, young and old, aren't so lucky and I remember the intense sadness I felt when I visited my Dad on the stroke ward and saw so many helpless people, prisoners in their own bodies.

I designed my t shirt with my 'famous last words' 'No T No Shade' which is a fun, silly nod to Ru Paul, (a man I admire for his work in the gay and drag community- breaking down barriers and social "norms") and an appropriate tea pun, as long term readers will know I'm a huge tea lover. I wanted a fun slogan t shirt which I myself would love to wear and want to spend money on. I think I achieved my goal, however, the final say is down to you! The t shirt with the most votes will be printed and sold on boohoo, so if you like my design as much as I do, I'd love for you to vote for me, here!

Loads of awesome bloggers and vloggers have been invited to get involved in the competition, and you can view all their entries here. I'd like to thank Boohoo for asking me to get involved and for sending me my blank t shirt and fabric pens and allowing me to get creative! I'll be posting more about the competition on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages, so make sure you follow me on there to stay up to date!

Outfit: 007 Casino Royale Viewing Party

IMG_3508
A few weeks ago, a perturbing metal case full of goodies was delivered to my house... It came from the lovely people behind the 007 James Bond Fragrances who gave me a kit for a great James Bond, Casino Royale themed night in, to celebrate the release of the 007 For Women Eau De Parfum. With a bottle of Bollinger popped, Casino Royal in the DVD player and 007 cupcakes at our fingertips, I settled in for a night of fun with some friends. Even though I kept it casual, I saw no reason not to dress up with some new threads from Topshop and dress up my living room with streamers and balloons!

The perfume itself is housed in a gorgeous black bottle, with a cool textured design. It looks beautiful on the dressing table and is initially quite a floral scent with undertones of vanilla and musk, which come through with wear. It's a gorgeous scent thats seductive enough for night, whilst also being subtle enough for day wear, also. It comes in 4 sizes which is perfect for anyone wanting to try a small size, right up to a season fan who needs a lasting fix of the amazing scent!

I throughly enjoyed a night in with a Casino Royale on dvd, cupcakes and of course, champagne.... However, I think I most enjoyed the excuse to dress up! I love the white/creme dress paired with the pop of colour in these amazing coral wedges from Topshop- I think I'm obsessed with them!

Thank you to the fab people behind 007 fragrances for sending me the 007 Fragrance for Women and my party kit!

Outfit: Faux Fur in The Royal Crescent

IMG_3184
A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to be given the chance to visit Bath in a Citroen C4 Cactus, and bring my Mum along for the ride. I shared the trip in a post, here, but I promised I would also share with you my outfits for the short time we were there. We were lucky with the weather, and although it was a little chilly (it was early in the year, what can we expect from the UK?) it was blue skies and sun shine all around. The sunnies were out for the first time this year and I was loving it.

We took these photos on our first day in Bath, upon our visit to the famous 'Royal Crescent,' a street famed for its aesthetic, views and opulence, just outside of Bath's city centre. I couldn't help but utilise this as a gorgeous ootd backdrop....

I'm wearing a monochromatic outfit here, keeping it simple and letting the gold jewellery and unique faux fur coat speak for themselves. Whilst the outfit seems simple -and certainly wasn't taxing to put together- the cut outs on the cami top and the mixing of the silky material of the top with the faux fur creates a chic feel. It was comfortable to wander around in and kept me snug!
