A few weeks ago I was contacted by a brand called Naomi Shu. If you haven't heard of them they are basically an online store that predominantly sells really edgy yet affordable shoes. I've been following them for quite a few years, so I was really excited when they approached me to do a collaboration. They ended up naming a shoe after me, well my blogger name, but how cool is that!? We all know I have a slight shoe obsession so it was the perfect collaboration.

I haven't been posting as much as I usually do recently as I've had quite a lot going on in the past month. Some of you may or may not know that my boyfriend Jay is in a band called Cabin Boy Jumped Ship and I was lucky enough to be invited along to Vienna, Austria to film them perform at Impericon Festival!

If you haven't heard of Cabin Boy Jumped Ship, they're a four piece electronicore / metal band, go check them out here. They are currently working on their first album which should be released later on this year, so keep your eyes peeled, they also make some sick merch!  

I had such an awesome time in Vienna and it was pretty cool to see Cabin Boy perform on such a big stage alongside bands such as Silverstein, Bury Tomorrow, Attila, We Came As Romans and many more. I was also so excited that I finally got a chance to see Silverstein live too, my inner 16 year old was screaming!

So overall Vienna was great, despite only being there for around 48 hours. I'll definitely have to go back and visit again as it was such a beautiful place. 

 I am so proud of Cabin Boy and what they have achieved as they've worked really hard to get to this point. They are also playing the 'Doghouse Stage' at Download Festival on the Thursday this year, so be sure to go and check them out if your going!   

So without further ado here's the video from Impericon Fest...

Skinny Scrubs Lip Scrub Review


If your like me and love your matte liquid lipsticks, you will know that you need a good base for a smooth and consistent application. I find one of the best ways to do this is with a lip scrub as it exfoliates whilst moisturising at the same time. I think we sometimes forget that our lips need just as much attention as everything else when it comes to our skin care routine, especially if you wear lipstick day in, day out. 

Last week I was sent a lip scrub to try out from a new independent brand called Skinny Scrubs. I'm always up for trying new beauty brands especially ones that are cruelty free and made from all natural products.

Skinny Scrubs launched with three classic flavours of lip scrub, vanilla, lemon and peppermint. However they have recently added two more rather unique flavours to their site that I personally haven't seen anywhere else before, geranium & frankincense and lemon & lavender. I'll definitely have to try these out at some point! 

FIVE TIPS FOR TONAL DRESSING


WHAT I'M WEARING

TROUSERS - TU CLOTHING
TURTLE NECK TOP - PEACOCKS
JACKET - TOPSHOP (old)
BOOTS - LAMODA
BAG, GLASSES & BELT - PRIMARK
BERET - AMAZON
NECKLACE - CARTERGORE 
RINGS - TU CLOTHING

I am living for full black outfits right now!
 It's my favourite go to colour so why not wear it all at once?!

Now I know it's not everyones cup of tea dressing head to toe in black and a lot of people tend to avoid it, seeing it as a fashion faux pas. But it's really not the case and besides this look can essentially be recreated in any colour you want!

I don't shy away from many things when it comes to clothing, fur coats ✓ PVC pants ✓ crazy hats ✓ but the one thing I've always struggled with is skirts. Don't get me wrong I love them ... but on other people. I'm like Goldilocks when it comes to skirts they're either way too short or way too long and when I do find one with a perfect fit I never know how to style it!
