My April Favourites

Hello All!

Did you catch my April favourites video that I posted to my YouTube channel?

I probably won't film a May favourites video as all of my favourites are still the same this month, but fear not! I'll be sure to film something else instead. I'm really getting into the swing of filming videos in my (not so) new flat and I have sooo many video ideas from fun posts like this to beauty, fashion and food posts.

Speaking of which, if you follow me on Twitter you'll have just read that I have a hankering for chocolate muffins but we don't have any so I've made my own and am winging the recipe. If they turn out any good I'll do a recipe post on here. They smell pretty amazing right now - fingers crossed!

If there are any particular videos you'd like to see me to film let me know ;).

The New ‘It' Bag

As much as I like writing about affordable fashions, what girl doesn't enjoy the lusting over the odd luxury item every now and then? I was out to dinner on Tuesday (no pictures this time as the meal didn't look that great although it tasted amazing) and I looked down only to see that one of my best friends was sporting the 'it' bag of the summer, and my latest 'I spy' favourite, the Michael Kors Selma. 

Michael Kors Selma jewelled satchel available here

In actuality Kors' latest offering, the Sophie, is supposed to be the it bag of the moment but I've definitely seen more Selma's about this season. Not surprising as it has been the luxury line's best-selling style for quite some time and it seems that this summer it's set to be an even bigger hit.  The main draw for this bag, aside from the beautiful structured shape and practical shoulder strap is definitely the price tag.

Gimme Some Sun!

I was totally not expecting that beautiful burst of sunshine we got last Sunday so when it came to picking and outfit I was totally unprepared. I must have wasted at least half an hour going from maxi skirt to shorts and back choosing what to wear so I've decided that for next time I'm going to have an outfit ready! This is what I'll be wearing next time it's sunny:

T-Shirt: Ebay, Watch: here, Shorts: here, Bag: here, Trainers: Nike Air Max 90s

Bananas for Cabana!

Yesterday, after we worked up an appetite taking outfit pictures in the Olympic Park, we took a jolly two minute jaunt over to Westfield to grab some grub. Al fresco might I add - waheyyy! Summer is coming!!!

My boyfriend had a hankering for a burger so we ended up at a Brazilian restaurant called Cabana - no, I don't understand that choice either. I wasn't complaining though, I love love love Latino food so I knew I'd find something to my liking on the menu and boy was I right!


First Signs of Summerrrr!!!

 Hello! I really hope that, wherever you are, the sunshine reached you today and you were able to enjoy it. My boyfriend and I headed down to the Olympic Park in Stratford as we've never been and while I was there we took some outfit pictures. This is what I wore today, click the link below to see more pictures after the jump!

My New Hair!

I changed my hair! I finally gave in and took those plaits out. They were so easy to maintain - no styling required - and took two whole days to undo so I'd been putting off taking them out for ages. I ended up keeping them in for like 3 months longer than I should have (they're only supposed to last 6-12 weeks) so I had a lot of matting and knotting to deal with - naughty, naughty!

My hair has grown sooo much since I put the plaits in. Because I haven't been styling and brushing it for six months I haven't damaged it in any way so it's been able to grow to its full potential. I'm so relieved because I really hated it when it was really short and natural, I just don't suit short hair! Now that it's longer and I can do more styles with it I'm thinking of doing some hair styling videos on my YouTube channel. Do let me know in the comments below if this is something you'd like to see!

This photo is from my latest lot of outfit pictures so there are more to come! I'll post the rest including outfit details as soon as I get time to go through them all.
