Style | 4 Looks : 1 Knit Sweater

I've recently bulked up my knitwear collection for the cold months ahead. Spending all of last year in Australia, my wardrobe was seriously lacking warmth. You don't have to look far this season to see that knits are in. I fell for this light blue knit jumper, I love how it compliments my hair and skin tone as well as making my blue eyes pop. 

Building a wardrobe is an art. Learning how to integrate new items, with your existing wardrobe is about imagination and creativity.  And ultimately creating your own unique style. I've really loved playing with my wardrobe this season, so here's 4 ways to style one knit sweater for the colder months.

Style No.1   'Lets Brunch'   Picture sipping at a skinny flat white aside a choccy croissant. Caching up on the latest gossip and exchanging new indulgences with friends. It's no secret. I love to Brunch.  Mainly because getting out of bed before 9am on a weekend is completely unnecessary, yet have a love for all things breakfast. 

Bulky knits can be a little overpowering for a small frame like mine, so to add a touch of feminine fun I'm wearing my favourite pleat skirt, which flounces as I walk. Yes, like an 8year old. Bring sophistication back the look with a classic pear of Chelsea heeled boots and my go-to bag. 




Cape - eBay here // Skirt - Topshop // Heels - New Look similar 

Style No 2.    'Let's do Coffee'   A large part of my working and personal life involves running to coffee meetings. Be they for work or for pleasure, it's always important to look well turned out. For me it's a balancing act of just enough glam with just enough I woke up like this. 

Little skirt and heels show up for the glam team, while the knit swearer and cape keep the look casual as well as cosy.   


Navy Blazer - H&M similar // Pink Leggings - Uni Qlo In store only - similar // Bag - Zara 

Style No 3.    'Lets Shop'   I always recommend wearing jeans or leggings when out on a shopping trip. Something easy to tug on and off during dressing room visits. And these pink wash  jeans never fail to make me smile. Just because it's Autumn/Winter now, doesn't mean you should shy away from colour.

 Throw on a Blazer to smarten up the look, and a matching shoe and bag combo... let's shop. 



Navy Blazer - H&M  // Dark wash Jeans - Gap here // Bag - Zara similar // Heels - Michael Kors Similar 


Style No 4.   'Let's Work'   I'm lucky enough that my office isn't super formal, most days you'll find me running off to meetings in little dresses or jeans. But this is no dress down friday - this navy blazer gives my figure shape and definition, teamed with dark wash jeans,  totally nails the smart casual look.  Add a pair of comfy heels for good measure, these are my new favourites for Michael Kors and let's get to work.

I have so much fun playing dress up in my wardrobe. Makes me feel like a little girl again! Let me know how you're styling your knits this Winter!

Style | You can take the girl out of the Country...

You can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl.

 I grew up within a world of farmland, tractors and tweed. It's been almost 5 years since I left home, and now a city girl I can't help but bring some of the country with me. 

Beauty | La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar range

Hyper-pigmentation? Dark spots?  Ever lurking dark circles?  Toss the cucumber slices aside and throw out your concealer (literally) and enter La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar range of skin products. It's not often I rave about a product, but I'm so blown away by the results of these two simple products, that you'd be crazy not to try them! 

Lifestyle | 25 problems of a Beauty Blogger


I've been a beauty bloggers for about 3 years now, and it really is a way of life, in a humorous way. People just don't understand you need to buy that new formulation of lipgloss in EVERY colour. They just don't understand that you can't go out just yet - you need to upload your new post! Both of these to me are very vaild arguments, but you do have to laugh at yourself sometimes. So I've put together 25 of my top problems with being a Beauty blogger, which is had me in fits of giggles while writing! So go on, have a giggle at yourself! 

Lifestyle | MAGNIFY - ISSUE 1 : Faith Feminism Fashion


Introducing MAGNIFY and exciting new woman's mag with attitude and aspirations. With Blogging and digital publications, it's becoming a rare thing to actually get your hands on a physical product. Now I fully support the digital age, if I didn't I wouldn't be blogging, but there's something about holding pages between your fingers instead of scrolling that's so satisfying. 

Style | Show stopping Shoes


Anything under 5"3 and you're classed petite, this is a joke right?! I never reached 5 foot, so what should I call myself? 

Micro Petite? 

At 4"10, I struggle to be seen as an adult. Or seen at all for that matter. I have to tiptoe to enter my pin at a store and constantly have ID to hand. I'm 23, and most 13year old are taller than me. However, I can choose to hunch my shoulders and push my way through the crowd or I can embrace it.

Last Saturday evening, the boyfriend and I spent the evening browsing the rooms of Liberty. Now, if you've been to Liberty, you'll know its a beauty and fashion lover's heaven. So why did I spend the whole time standing in one spot, when there's SO much to look and lust at?

Style | Get-up-and-go Style


So you're chilling out at home, you've got some good beats going and the wine is flowing when somebody suggest going out. I believe the best nights out are the spontaneous ones, throwing cation to the wind and heading off with destination unknown. 

Lifestyle | Do fairytales exist?


I've recently been going through a transitional phase in my life. Not a physical or geographical one, but a mental, emotional and spiritual transition. My brain is no longer being overloaded with the spiralling hormones of a teenager, my body has decided it's staying put how it is, so shouldn't life be getting simpler?

Beauty | Black Friday Wishlist


One of the many things I miss about living in Australia has to be Black Friday. Every year the day after Thanksgiving, every shop window and online store is boasting huge and excessive discounts and deals. It's the one day a year where you don't have to feel bad for splurging on those luxury items.

Decor | Home is Where the Heart is...


One of my favourite type of post to read is home decor. I love getting new inspiration and tricks that I can incorporate into my own home. We recently moved from Cambridge to London  and totally loving exploring the big city. 

Beauty | Autumn Winter 2014 : Lipstick Picks!

Autumn and Winter are definitely my favourite seasons for Make up. I go mad over the dark berry and cinnamon red shades which occupy beauty counters this time of year. I'm not a huge wearer of bright colours during the warmer months, but as soon as Autumn set in - Hold me back! 

Beauty | SACHAJUAN Protective Hair Perfume


SACHAJUAN Protective Hair Perfume*, is one of those products that I'm not sure I need, but I'm so intrigued that I try it anyway! I was once told a little spritz of perfume in your hair made your scent last longer, but what about a perfume JUST for your hair? 

Lifestyle | Portobello Road Market


As newbies to London, we're all about seizing every chance we get to explore the beautiful city. I always said I never wanted to live in London, I only moved here for my job. However the more time I'm here and exploring I'm very quickly falling in love.

YouTube | OCTOBER FAVOURITES!

I had a glorious two weeks off work!! 

We moved into our cosy flat in London. 

I turned 23! And was whisked off to Paris to celebrate! 

So much has happened in one month. But I thought I'd squeeze in some time to share some on my favourites this month with you!

Enjoy.... <3
