STREET STYLE | LONDON FASHION WEEK A/W '13

I had been looking forward to attending London Fashion Week and luckily I was able to get to attend and meet up with some very inspirational people.
It was still very cold during this seasons shows but everyone still looked amazing and dressed to kill.
I thought I'd do some street style photographs on the the last two days and those days actually ended up being the most fun. I saw so many familiar faces, blogging and photography friends which was a treat!
So, here's my little sneak peek into some of the outfits that I loved and felt inspired by a LFW this season.
By the end of the week I had taken over 500 images and it was so hard to narrow it all down, so I hope this little insight into LFW through my photos inspires you all as much as they all inspired me!

WHAT COMES FROM THE HEART, GOES TO THE HEART.

Happy Monday!
I have always been a fan of crop tops and I always pair them with anything high waisted. Today just seems to be one of those grey/dull days (and that's because of the weather lol), so I decided to throw on a fun but casual outfit.
I stuck to my usual fave colours that I usually wear on any casual day; blues, blacks and greys. However, this time I wanted to ensure to add a pop of colour into my look and this jumper from Topshop definitely does the job correctly.
I love the fact this jumper is bold and also chunky knit, two of my fave things about it!
The grey midi skirt is also very flattering, adds emphasis to the bright top and I just love it because it's so thick & comfy, perfect finish to my casual look today.
Plus, its started snowing again here in London today, so I've thrown on my fur jacket and boots to stay extra snug and warm. :)

MORE THAN KISSES, LETTERS MINGLE SOULS.

Hello all!
I hope you have all been well and are looking forward to the start to a new week.
I kept this look sleek and simple with a new dress I bought from Topshop. As soon as I saw it I started thinking of different looks I could create with it. I love it because you can dress it either up or down but it still has that chiq touch of class. I also love the white letters that contrast with the black.
Pairing black and white is a hot spring trend that I love at the moment.
The sun seems to be coming out now and again over here, so I am really looking forward to wearing a lot more dresses and getting out of all the thick layers I’ve been piling on to stay warm during the winter. Spring is on it’s way!
Dress - Topshop
Gold Cuffs - Ebay
Belt - Vintage
Jacket - New Look
Shoes - Next

TED BAKER STAR QUALITY VANITY CASE


I got this Ted Baker beauty box as a gift from a family member at christmas and I've been using the contents now for about a month. So far, I have loved everything that I have used in the box, so I thought I'd share it  with you all.
I am always very weary of using products from brands that have been known to specialise in one sector (e.g Clothing), now trying to branch into another sector. As you all know, you can't just use any old product on your skin. However, Ted Baker have changed my feelings towards branded gift sets and I love this little beauty box!
The products have a very distinct smell of rose, vanilla and sandalwood. I love anything with warm, creamy vanilla smells, so this one is definitely a keeper.
My fave products in the vanity case are the body lotion, body scrub and hand lotion.
The hand lotion and body lotion go hand in hand. They are both a similar consistency and smell roughly the same. I am currently using both. The body lotion is not as moisturising as the hand lotion (on my skin) but they do get the job done well. The hand cream was always in my bag during January and I am rather surprised that I still have about half a bottle of product left. My colleagues at work (even the guys) always ask to use it - That's how good it smells and soft it makes your hands!!
The body scrub is also rather good. It's exfoliates gently and leaves my legs soooo smooth. 
The vanity case has now been turned into a little storage space for some jewellery and looks so pretty next to my other beauty products and Muji make up drawers. It has a cute little mirror and is very handy. This is probably the best beauty Xmas gift, I've ever been gifted! :)
