what i'm wearing: jacket and trousers Primark // top New Look // shoes Topshop // watch Michael Kors // bag Chanel

Spring / Summer 2015 is all about white - head to toe white, Victoriana inspired white lace dresses, white power dressing...you get the idea. I love the head to toe white look taken from the catwalk, but I chose to style my whites with a black top to defy the trend a little bit and in my eyes make it more wearable day to day. This is a crop top which looks great for an evening of cocktails or a shopping trip, but if you want to make this look office/uni friendly, I'd advise wearing a longer length top to keep your look conservative.
I have added a statement "it" bag which is a hit accessory this season, you can find alternatives to this Chanel quilted bag in almost any high street stores - or hit up eBay for a real designer bargain! Keeping this look quite minimalist, I also added my Michael Kors watched and some stacked rings from H&M - to me, these are all the accessories required to keep this look timeless and classy.
On my feet I am wearing some white Topshop platform sandals - platforms are huge this Spring 2015 and of course the colour of the season is white. These shoes are mega comfy, but, very slippery on floors so bear that in mind when strutting down the corridors!

I have sensitive skin so it's very important for me to choose the right skincare products to ensure my skin is kept calm and under control. I have been religiously using toners for the last two years because I really notice a difference in the level of oils my skin produces and toners refresh my skin instantly. I use a toner at night to close my pores after a hot bath and also to get any makeup that might be remaining from the day, and I also use a toner in the morning to wipe away any oils from the night before and start my day with a clean "canvas".
I have tried a few toners over the past couple of months and I wanted to share these reviews with you as I think if you have sensitive skin you sometimes need to be picky with what you buy and put on your face.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution: This has been on the radar of a lot of beauty bloggers and has been a favourite amongst popular YouTubers so naturally I had to try it out. As it says on the bottle, this is a toner for sensitive skin and it feels like you're wiping your face with water: there's no harshness to the toner at all. You can also remove makeup with this solution and it is really effective (except against waterproof mascara unless you really scrub, which is never great) and gentle on the skin. The cleanser removes impurities using micelles, which micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance. Added decongesting active ingredients prevent irritation making this the perfect toner for sensitive skin. I have now actually used up the whole bottle and I will be repurchasing this as an everyday toner because it just doesn't irritate my skin in any way but keeps it refreshed and clean.

VICHY Purete Thermale Micellar Solution: Liam bought me this toner when he saw that I was running out of Bioderma because he knows how much I lovee VICHY products and they really get on well with my sensitive skin. This micellar solution is made for sensitive skin and is enriched with soothing Rose Phytopheno. The solution cleanses your skin and removes eye and lip makeup without being harsh on the skin. I like the way it smells, there's a very light sweet floral scent which goes along with this toner. I have been using the VICHY micellar solution for about a month and I'm really happy with the results - if you can't get hold of Bioderma, this is a great alternative.

LUSH Breath of Fresh Air toner water: Lush is known for their natural ingredients and products good enough to eat, and this is the second time I have repurchased this toner. This is a refreshing toner water with seaweed extract, patchouli oil and rose which calms the skin. I love love love this toner in the summer because it really refreshes my skin and you can carry the bottle around with you to just spray whenever you feel a little hot and sweaty. I also use it day to day, and when I feel like I need a little "pick me up" for my skin. It keeps any spots and redness at bay so I'd say it's a great toner for sensitive skin.

Kueshi Pure and Clean toner: I have recently started using this toner after receiving it in my January Glossybox, first impressions: it smells delicious! It smells like flowers and sweets, really sugary. However, the toner consists of promising aloe vera, chamomile and calendula which all soothe the skin and are recommended for sensitive skin. I use this toner after a Lush bath when I want to smell like sweets, but I'm yet to find out what this is like as an everyday toner. It makes my skin feel supersoft and clean so it is a really promising start.

These are my current favourite toners for sensitive skin and I hope you enjoyed reading this post! If you can recommend other toners to try, please comment below!

what i'm wearing: top, skirt, necklace and boots Zara (sale) // sunglasses New Look

In one of my previous posts I mentioned that one of the key trends fro Spring/Summer 2015 is going to be revival of the 70s which means boho vibes, crazy prints and oversized sunglasses. I love the 70s trend, it's one that I am definitely embracing this year because I love the free spirited boho feel and look of this style.
I fell in love with this skirt as soon as I saw it - I love the cut, the print and the zipper on the front of the skirt, it really gives it that vintage feel. I styled it with a plain t-shirt and a statement necklace which ties in with the colourful skirt, and added in round oversized sunglasses (my favourite style at the moment!). I finished the look with glossy platform boots which are very 70s era and some stackable rings from H&M.
I can already tell that I will be wearing this look quite a lot this Spring/Summer as it's fun, colourful, trendy and most of all comfortable.

what i'm wearing: jumper New Look // Joni jeans Topshop // shoes Topshop // sunglasses Primark // bag Chanel // watch Michael Kors

I love the minimalistic monochrome trend which is commonly sported amongst the Scandinavian bloggers, and Spring 2015 is all about white so I decided to style a casual everyday outfit which anyone can wear.
I chose a white cosy jumper for New Look which will transition nicely from the colder months of Winter to warmer months of Spring, and will also keep you warm on chilli Summer nights. I love jumpers - they are so easy to wear and if you pick a simple jumper, it will be a staple piece in your wardrobe for years.
I paired the jumper with high waisted Joni jeans from Topshop and a pair of white platform shoes. Platforms are set to be huge this Spring/Summer and you can't go wrong with the on trend white colour.
To jazz up an otherwise simple outfit, I added some bling in the shape of multiple skinny gold rings and a chunky watch from Michael Kors. And to finish, I threw in my designer "it" bag from Chanel - classic and never out of style!

I'm loving this simple and fresh look for Spring 2015 - what trend are you most looking forward to?

what i'm wearing: t-shirt, flared jeans and necklace all Zara // sunglasses New Look

I'm so excited about the Spring 2015 Seventies throwback! I love the Seventies, I think it was an amazing era of fashion with boho vibes, fun and eclectic prints and florals everywhere! One of the trends from the Seventies I'm currently loving are the flared jeans: flattering, long and the bigger the flare, the better.
I paired my jeans with a plain white t-shirt and a statement necklace (all from Zara who currently have the best sale!) and some platform boots (which you can't really see as these jeans are mega long), but flared jeans also look great with a printed t-shirt - the brighter the better. Choose floral prints and cartoons from the era to really get that Seventies vibe.

I'm so excited for more trends reminiscent of the Seventies to emerge from the high street as I think this will be the trend which I will be embracing most of all this Spring / Summer 2015.

Some of you who have been on my Instagram over the last week would have seen that I bought a really cute book which is all about cooking for you dog. I know, I'm a crazy dog lady! But it's actually really useful as pet treats have a lot of added sugar and other ingredients which we don't know about that could potentially be harmful to our dear pooches. So I have decided to try and make Harvey homemade treats that I have made myself and know all the ingredients that were used.

On Saturday, I decide to bake Harvey some cheeseburger bites and all I needed was:
400g of plain oats
1 beef stock cube and 275ml of water to dilute it in
40g of parmesan cheese

Pour the oats into a bowl and add the stock - mix well so the oats and stock form a nice, almost solid mixture. Then slowly add in the parmesan cheese, mixing well.
Once the consistency is right (you want the 'dough' to not fall apart and bend around well), roll it out on a clean surface using a rolling pin. Then get some cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes: I didn't have a doggy bone one so I used hearts, starts and gingerbread men!
Place your biscuits on a baking tray and pop in the over at 180c for 30 minutes. Once the biscuits are baked, let them cool before giving one to your pooch to enjoy!

Harvey loved his cheesy bites and kept coming back for more, but it's important we remember that a treat is still a treat and should be a part of a healthy diet. These biscuits can keep in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 weeks, so feel free to make a big batch to store. I also think these biscuits make a really cute present for someone else's puppy!
