Week in Photos No.59


The past week has been an interesting one, packed full of blogging and editing videos like there was no tomorrow, and attending a couple of events on the way. On Monday, I spoke on the panel at the Company Blogger Forum which I was honoured to be a part of, not to mention I was giving my advice about blogging alongside the Susie Bubble who in my eyes has far more experience on my one year of blogging; click here for more details on the event. I've really been missing Barcelona this week but I was pleasantly cheered up by an evening spent with my YouTube best bud, Helen (from www.melonlady.com) at the StyleHaul party drinking cocktails and getting our makeup done - the ladies at benefit cosmetics took my fake eyelash virginity!

Topshop Haul • June 2013

The other week I had a bit (well.. a rather big) splurge both online and in-store at Topshop but I have no regrets because I love everything I purchased and it meant I could also film a haul video for you lovely lot. I bought some closet essentials which needed renewing, some items in which I will treasure for a long time and some not so much needed items but hey, I'm only human and once I start shopping, there is no stopping me!

Outfit of the Day • 25.06.13

I've finally found a way to film outfit of the day videos, just like the good old days when I first began YouTube and I'm very excited to announce I'll be filming them on a regular basis. Today, I fell in love again with a little floral number I bought back in 2009 which I wore today just to pop into town and run some errands; enjoy the video!

Barcelona 2013

On Thursday, Douglas and I got back from our four day holiday in Barcelona and I wanted to share with you some extra snaps I took whilst out there, along with a video montage I whipped together for those of you not up for watching the full length vlogs over on my second YouTube channel  (RhiannonAshleeExtra). This trip was my present to Doug for his Birthday back in May and it was a first for a lot of things, including mine and Doug's first holiday (without his family), my first City holiday (AKA not just lying by the pool all day) and the first time being delayed in an airport for seventeen hours.. which was not so great!

Week in Photos No.58

This weeks photos speak for themselves and there are a lot of them after mine and Douglas' four day trip to Barcelona, which can I add, was amazing in every way possible; minus the seventeen hours worth of delays, cancellations and waiting around in Barcelona airport on our way back home. Apart from the obvious fact that being on holiday was fab, it was also great spending so much time with Doug (I'm sure anyone else in a long distance relationship can empathise) and this was the first of many adventures to come, together. I won't say too much now as I've got way too much to talk about, along with some more photos which are saved for a post all of their own!

Non-Fashion/Beauty Wish List • June 2013

1. Topshop: Paper Pom Poms, £7 (buy here)
I love pom poms of any form, so when I saw these floating around Topshop they were straight on my wish list. In the photo they do look like the puffs you use to wash with, but in person they're lovely and look more like flowers. I think they would look great hanging in the corner of the bedroom.

Company #StyleBlogger Awards 2013

If you follow me on any of my social media sites then you have probably heard the good news, but I wanted to write a quick post on my blog to say thank you and to let the people who don't know the news, into the loop. On May 29th, it was the Company Blogger Awards and as you lot know, I was shortlisted under Best Fashion Blog and can you flaming believe, I won!

Week in Photos No.57

This week has been pretty quiet compared to most, as you can probably tell from the lack of instagram photos (yes.. nine photos in a week on instagram is not many for me) but I've definitely been kept busy preparing videos and blog posts before I fly off to Barcelona for a few days with the boyfriend; I shan't lie, it's been rather stressful actually but it always feels good to get lots of work done, right?!

May Favourites • 2013

We're half way through the year already, can you believe it?! Entering a new month means a monthly favourites video is due and boy do I have a lot to share with you this month. I've fallen back in love with old items of clothing as well as new, I've won awards, joined the gym and become obsessed with trends I never thought I would ever even take a second look at. Enjoy the video!

Wish List • June 2013

1. Topshop: Spider Floral Jumpsuit, £60 (buy here)
After I recently fell back in love with an old Topshop jumpsuit I bought back in 2010, I have been on the hunt for some more and boy, oh boy I have found my perfect jumpsuit. This gorgeous, rich blue, silky number gives of a cool 70s vibe and when (yes, when) I get my hands on this, it will be like nothing else I have in my wardrobe. Royal blues look great against fair skin and with a sweep of red lippy, I think we have a winner!

Fashion Targets Breast Cancer

I'm sure you've all heard of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer; a charity fashion campaign launched by Breakthrough Breast Cancer in 1996 to help raise awareness and money for breast cancer charities all around the world. I wanted to do my little bit to help raise awareness of this good cause because sometimes life gets busy and we forget about charities such as Fashion Targets Breast Cancer - supporting the charity may seem like a tiny (maybe even pointless) thing to do, yet to someone helped by the charity it could mean everything!

Blindfolded Makeup Challenge • Girlfriend Edition

Exactly seven months ago, to this exact day (genuinely wasn't planned, just a coincidence) I let my boyfriend loose on my face with a selection of my makeup, in other words, we did the 'boyfriend does my makeup tag' on YouTube which you can watch here. I finally got to get revenge in the form of doing his makeup... but blindfolded!

Week in Photos No.56

Well, what a week it has been! Douglas visited for a few days to celebrate his 20th Birthday with his twin sister (watch vlog) where we watched our friend Tom play a gig, spent time catching up with his family, soaking up the little bit of sun we had over the bank holiday weekend, playing badminton in his back garden whilst drinking pimm's (that make's us sound so stereotypically English) and Doug and I also managed to film a couple of videos for you. If that wasn't already a good enough week, then I had the Company Blogger Awards on Wednesday which was so much fun in itself, but I actually won the title of Best Fashion Blog '13 and I embarrassingly cried after I received my award.. but thank you ever so much to those of you who voted and I want to do a separate post on this so I shan't go on!

New Look Haul • June 2013


Recently, I seem to have been very involved with New Look from going to their AW13 press day to visiting my local store a couple of times and as a result I am here with a New Look haul video. Anyone would think it's still winter judging by the items I've purchased but sadly it's just been a poor excuse for Summer this year, even for England - that and I have an obsession with slouchy knitted jumpers!
