Week in Photos No.62

The past week has been full of highs and one massive low which annoyingly I cannot discuss at this moment in time, so instead lets focus on the positives. I travelled to London a fair few times this week; I filmed with vlogger Tanya Burr for Dailymix and I was luckily invited to check out the ASOS AW13 collections before they're available online alongside a couple other press events. I also saw my Mum during the week for a meal at Hotel Du Vin which was lovely as always but makes me wish I saw her more often now we don't live together - it's funny how we only learn to appreciate our Mothers when we're out of our terrible teens but by then, we have moved out of home resulting in us seeing them less when we would actually love to see them more than we did when we were younger and living with them!

ASOS AW13 Preview

ASOS is one of my favourites online retailers, I have been shopping there for years and recently I have found myself purchasing my fair share of smock dresses from there on a regular basis, so I was very pleased to be invited to the viewing of their new AW13 collections. Prepare yourselves to want to spend more money than you have with the ASOS AW13 collection featuring an array of colours, beautiful prints, fabrics and knits. ASOS have covered everything you could possibly want for next season from slouchy jumpers and cardigans to amazing occasion dresses, from stationary to feline inspired woollen hats, from leather to sequins, you name it!

Outfit of the Day • 18.07.13

Yesterday, I ventured up to London to do some filming with Tanya Burr for DailyMix on YouTube. It was lovely meeting Tanya again and getting an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the DailyMix YouTube channel; I can't wait to see the video we filmed - I hope I did ok!

Week in Photos No.61

Oh my, the weather was beautiful this week and it seems like it's here to stay which is good as I could get used to this thirty degree weather everyday. I spent another week up in Cambridgeshire at Douglas' where one day we went to the cinema to watch The Internship, I accidentally purchased a Coke and a bag of popcorn bigger then myself to take into the film in which Doug spilt that huge Coke all over me half way through the film (accidental of course, but still not appreciated on my behalf) but luckily I could see the funny side of it all. Other days were spent at funfairs; drinking Pimm's (which is a must have during the summer months); having god knows how many BBQ's and generally having a lovely time!

June Favourites • 2013

My June Favourites are here, a little later than usual, but better late than never, right? This months favourites video includes a couple of cosmetic items, my new favourite jacket, a couple albums and even a book (I say 'even' because I have never particularly been a fan of reading but it's slowly growing on me) as well as a mini haul from my holiday in Barcelona!

Bench AW13 Campaign Preview #LIVETHECITY


I have never particularly looked twice at Bench due to them designing sportswear and well, me not being the sportiest of people... but their AW13 campaign really caught my eye, so I thought I'd share a sneaky preview of their new campaign, which includes both photos and a video teaser.

Week in Photos No.60

After a hard week of trying to get a couple of weeks work done in the space of a few days, I packed my bags and headed up to Ely, Cambridgeshire on the train to spend a week or two with Mr. Powley, aka my boyfriend, Douglas. I'm still here, in Ely, as you read this and I have no set day I'm going home yet so I'm just going to make the most of it. Monday was our one year anniversary so we went out for a lovely meal and I finally got to reveal to him what his anniversary present was: two tickets for us to go to the Holi Festival of Colours in London next month and we're both so excited. The rest of our week has been spent enjoying BBQ's during the warm summer evenings, trips to London and Cambridge, lazing on the sofa and a spot of shopping!

Denim Dungarees • Styling Saturday

1. Topshop: MOTO Denim Dungarees, £38 (buy here)      2. Topshop: Stripe Shirt, £25 (buy here)     3. ASOS: Half Round Sunglasses, £12 (buy here)      4. Topshop: Cream Socks, £3.50 (buy here)      5. Topshop: Ankle Boots, £40 (buy here)

Dungarees: you either love 'em or hate 'em! I am yet to find a pair that I feel fit me perfectly but I will continue to hunt them down because they can look really cute and even chic if styled correctly (although is there a right or wrong when it comes to fashion?) therefore just like trying to find the perfect leather jacket, if I find a pair I love I'll have to buy them there and then, before it's too late. On the subject of dungarees, I thought I'd play with one of many ways to style a pair of basic dungarees in this weeks Styling Saturday, and if I find a pair of my own I shall try and write a more in depth and dynamic post for you all!

Orange Rib Geometric Jumper at River Island • Pick of the Week

river island: orange rib geometric pattern cropped jumper, £25 (buy here)
Most of you will be confused as to why I'm writing about a jumper at the beginning of July, but as you may already know, I am a huge fan of knitted jumpers and here in England we are currently getting a few days of glorious sunshine, followed by a fairly miserable day or two, therefore for a lot of us in the UK, jumpers aren't always ruled out during the summer months.
