DIY Pinterest Worthy Candles

Bringing you a super quick and easy DIY idea today! I love a beautiful and simple design on a candle, but these often come with the kind of price tag that makes your skin crawl at the thought of forgetting to blow them out and hours later finding you've accidentally burnt £40 worth of candle.

I have a lot of these simple white candles spread around my room from Tesco, and only £1! They come with a sticker on the front I always peel off. They're a great base to stick on your own design.

What you'll need:
1. Printable sticker paper (I ordered this from amazon, it came with 10 sheets of A4)
2. Any plain candle of choice, here are the style I've used (I'd advise only using candles that come in a glass container, may not be very safe without!)
3. An A4 printer

I've been playing around with my graphics tablet to create the designs on the candles above. I found it so fun putting a page of ideas together, some of the images I just grabbed straight from my Pinterest. There are so many different designs you could make, some of the stickers I'm also going to use on notebooks and stationary, so fancy!
Once I'd put the document together and printed it onto the sticker paper, it just cut them out and stuck them on. They're so easy to make I had to share!

Hope you're having a great week, if you like my posts make sure you're following me on bloglovin. It's so easy just follow the bloglovin button in my side bar, it's much easier to see everything I post first!)

P.s Does anyone know if I can order basic candles like these with more fragrant scents? I'm preferably after either Fig/Jasmine/Sandlewood, so then these labels are a bit more apt!

Pound Hill OOTD

 I spent my Saturday in Hinton Ampner with my boyfriend and dog, it's a beautiful stately home and gardens (although it states 'dog friendly' there's only a very small section of the grounds that allow dogs) so we did a lot sneaking behind hedges with my big black labrador so we could explore a little better.

It's also the first time I've worn shorts out all summer! I ordered these denim shorts from Boohoo last week and I'm really pleased! They're long enough so your bum isn't hanging out the back, fit well and only £15! Although I normally live in trousers, (I am that person wearing jeans in 25° weather) I felt pretty comfortable after I smartened them up with sliders and my trusty cross body bag!

As always I've linked what I'm wearing below and found some alternatives to anything not available. If you'd like keep up with my latest posts you can always follow me on Bloglovin, I've been using it a lot more recently to read my favourite blogs and it's fab.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Ego Soleil Launch

Hoping to introduce you to a new brand today, I've recently discovered Ego Soleil myself and they're launching with their SS17 collection on August 11th (tomorrow!) which I'm so excited for!

Ego Soleil are a contemporary NYC womenswear brand, they use really sleek minimal styles and silhouettes with pops of bold colours. I've included some of my favourite pieces to show you from the new Lookbook above and a BTS shot too! (That rail looks so dreamy, I'm really loving the dark plum and pink tones for spring). If you like to keep in the know with brands like I do, this is definitely a name to remember.

You can have a look for yourself at egosoleil.com or follow them on Instagram @egosoleil, as they're launching tomorrow it's a great way to see their updates first!

Birthday Wishlist


It's my birthday in just under a month away (August 19th to be specific!) and there's a few things I've been lusting after for a while now, thought I would share!

1. This is actually a swimsuit by Marysia, but I'm dying to get my hands on this Asos dupe.

2. Monica Vinader 'mini siren bezel' pendant. Being my favourite jewellery brand this £60 pendant is a great keepsake.

3. Diptyque candles are always a must! (and from net-a-porter they come beautifully packaged)

4. ACNE 'canada wool' scarf, wanted this for about a year now.. *heart eye emoji*

5. Asos minimal mesh watch, a smart alternative to my all black watch I wear everyday.

6. Topshop 'raw edge sock boot', I've put these back on the shelf many times as I just couldn't justify another pair of boots but birthdays are special occasions ay?

7. Zara 'contrasting tote, in taupe', this bag is only £19.99 but has all the Mansur Gabriel vibes.

8. Asos culotte jumpsuit, this is THE perfect jumpsuit for me; cami top, wide leg and a simple waist detail.

I love birthday gifts that are pieces that you love but don't need or feel are a waste of money, if that makes any sense? For example a £40 candle has almost no purpose, but opening that net-a-porter box to find a luxury candle is a great feeling! Maybe it sounds spoilt.. but it's something I love to do for other people too, it makes a birthday extra special.

Hope you have a fab week!

Micro Pleats OOTD

 Happy Friday! Thought I'd put a quick outfit post up before the weekend! It was the first day all week it's been a little cooler so took full advantage of wearing my very fancy new micro pleated culottes. If you follow me on Instagram I posted a photo of the trousers and top (they came as a set) from Boohoo, for an incredible £20. Click here to see the photo I posted of the full set, I think they look fab worn together or both can be worn separately!

I first saw a pale pink pair of trousers like these in Zara that are beautiful but felt I just wouldn't get my wear out of them (they were only £22 too!) although I'm having second thoughts now after how much I love these in black. I also know there's nude pair in Topshop that are equally as beaut!

If you have visited my blog before you may have picked up on the fact I really don't wear much colour and I don't feel I'm purposely only trying to maintain a monochrome wardrobe, I just don't feel it ever suits me! I'm just not drawn to colours when I'm shopping, only neutrals. Saying this I love colour on other people, a large amount of other bloggers and Instagram accounts I follow have different styles to myself which is something I love.

(I've put in the links below of what's still available online and some alternatives!)

sunglasses- H&M
top- ASOS
jacket- Zara (£40!)

Chiswick Fire Station

Hope you've had a great Sunday, thought i'd share what I got up to this weekend! Saturday morning I drove into London with Matt my boyfriend and headed to Chiswick Fire Station. If you haven't seen it popping up all over Instagram recently it's a Bar & Restaurant with an amazing interior design and atmosphere. The food was delicious and staff we're so friendly, not a cheap lunch out but felt it was worth every penny!
We spent the rest of the day walking round (what felt like the entirety of London) and shopping in Spitalfields before heading home again.

I've also added in some outfit photos I took a few days before hand so decided to combine the two in this post! I'm really loving these heels at the moment, for warmer weather they're a really great substitute for the ankle boots I was wearing in the past colder months.
This outfit is all from Misguided, I'm a huge fan of minimal and simple trend lend pieces at the moment so this outfit is ticking all the right boxes for me!
