Hair Care Routine • FashionRocksMySocks

In the comments section of almost every one of my videos, I get asked questions like "how do you style your hair?" and "what hair products do you use", especially since I had all my hair chopped off in the New Year, therefore this video has been long overdue and I'm so excited to say I finally have a Hair Care Routine for those of you curious about my hair maintenance. Enjoy!

My eBay Collections

I have been an avid user of eBay for years whether I'm looking for a bargain or something in particular, I can always count on eBay to come to the rescue, as long as I have the time to scroll through page after page of items. So, when they approached me to be an eBay Influencer, of course I accepted.

eBay have very recently launched eBay Collections, an exciting new tool to enhance your online shopping experience. Influential curators from the world of fashion, lifestyle, electronics and motors have assembled personal collections of things they love on eBay. I have created 12 collections of my own using the same fashion and lifestyle influences you see throughout my blog and if you'd like to have a little look, then they can be viewed here

Out of my own collections, I would have to say my favourite are: My Brown Eyed Girl, Teenage Dirtbag and Oh, Alexa!

My Brown Eyed Girl Collection (view here) • Teenage Dirtbag Collection (view here) • Oh, Alexa! Collection (view here)

A great element to eBay Collections is that if you really like specific users, you can hit the 'follow' button and keep up to date with their collections. Anyone can created their own collection and the idea is that you create them based on a theme e.g. pretty in pink and when you find items suitable for the collection you simply click on 'add to collection' under the 'bid' or 'buy now' buttons and hey presto, you have started your very own collection.

How Well Do We Know Each Other?

It's been so long since my boyfriend, Douglas and I filmed video for my main YouTube Channel together, therefore we decided to hop onto the net for some inspiration and came across the how well do we know each other tag.

Week in Photos No.76


I have had such a lovely couple of weeks filled with sunshine, scrumious food and a few too many baths (if that's even possible). I slept over for the first time in Douglas' new place which is based onsite at his new job and even though I hate the fact there is no wifi, signal or 3G (let alone 4G), it was surprisingly nice to be in the middle of nowhere surrounded by acres and acres of wood with tiny brown bunnies hoping around all over the place - I'm amazed I haven't stolen any... yet!

date night with douglas • lush haul (watch here) • love this new jumper from topshop (buy here
my view when I woke up • this was so tasty, if I do say so myself • lovely housewarming gift from my grandma

Sweater Weather Tag & OOTN

I was tagged by my friend Marzia, to film the sweater weather tag months ago and I wanted to get it up before we head into spring - some of you are saying it's too late to be doing this video but the way I see it, is that it might not be autumn anymore but it's still sweater weather here in the UK. I also popped in a quick outfit of the day (night) so I hope you enjoy the video either way.

ASOS SS14 Denim • Shop My Picks


I'm a huge fan of ASOS and an avid wearer of jeans, so when I saw that ASOS had released their SS14 denim collections, of course I got very excited and had to blog about it. The SS14 ASOS denim collection has such a great variety from the everyday skinny to the ultra cool ripped boyfriend jean, from vintage high waisted to the ever so popular mom jeans and not to mention to array of colours available. I've had a peek at the collection and selected my favourites pairs which you can the shop for, and please do so I can live vicariously through you as I'm on a clothing shopping ban!


Low Rise Ankle Skinny Grazer, £30 (buy here)
These are a spring/summer essential as the light wash and cut go with almost anything. For an ultra summery, chic look, slip on a loose white camisole and your favourites sandals, you can't go wrong.

Black Ultra Skinny High Waist, £30 (buy here)
Another classic pair of jeans every girl needs in their wardrobe. Wear these with a cropped jumper to keep warm in the winter or pop on a sheer blouse for a playful, sophisticated get up.

Acid Wash High Waist Jeggings, £28 (buy here)
An alternative to the black high waist jeans and perfect with cropped tees for a stylish way to keep casual and comfortable. If you like to layer, why not add a cropped leather jacket and tie a plaid shirt around your waist.

Vintage Wash with Patchwork, £31.50 (buy here)
A slightly more daring pair of jeans for those of you who like both colour and boyfriend style jeans. The great thing about statement jeans is, to complete the outfit, all you need is a plain white tee and some sunnies - you have a playful outfit with minimal input because lets face it, some days you just need a day off from the stress of finding a good outfit from your floordrobe.


Chartreuse with Ripped Knee, £32 (buy here)
If you love yellow as much as me, then I'm sure you love these chartreuse skinny jeans. These will add a ray of sun to your wardrobe, even when the actual sun isn't shinning here in the UK.

ASOS Curve in Forest Green, £32 (buy here)
Just because you may be a fuller figured woman, doesn't mean you have to stick to black or indigo coloured jeans. If you want to play with colours, go for darker shades as they're generally more slimming, such as burgundy or these dark green ones from the ASOS Curve range.

Vintage Wash Mom Jeans with Busted Knees, £35 (buy here)
I have these mom jeans and what's great about them is that they give you the ever so popular mom jeans look without drowning you. These still show off your curves as they're high waisted and fairly tight around the bum, therefore not totally unflattering.

What are your go-to style of jeans and have you got your eyes on any for this summer?
