5 WAYS TO DEAL WITH STRESS

Being stressed can happen to any of us and it can strike at any moment. I had one of those moments last week, where I felt overwhelmed with so many changes happening in my life all at once within weeks of each other. We have moved house so there was lots packing then unpacking plus I am still trying find my feet in my new job, understanding the customer I design for. These things combined can feel very stressful at the time but here is a few little things you can do to help you gain control and make you feel all shiny, new and ready to face the world again.

Exercise. One of the best ways to take your mind off a stressful situation is to work out. I personally find going for a run takes my mind off whatever the problem I am facing and makes me focus on the task in hand. If running isn't your thing, take a yoga class as this can make you relaxed by just focusing on your breathing and stretches.

Pamper yourself. After my workout, jumping straight in the shower or having bath can instantly give you a sense of relaxation. Some products I love in the shower are Korres shower gel and the Big Blue bath bomb by Lush, both products help me relax. After my shower I use Garnier nourishing body oil to help my skin feel super soft.

Phone a friend. Just by picking up the phone and chatting with a friend through whatever stress you're going through can really help. I know I have certain friends I can turn to to make me laugh and forget any stress I am going through, putting eveyrthing into perspective.

Eating healthy food. This is a big one for me, I love to eat a healthy diet to help with my thought process and mindfuless. Fueling your body with good food will help when working out a problems. My top tip is to eat a good breakfast (I love eggs!) to set yourself up for a good day with positive vibes.

Sleep. And lots of it. Sleeping on a problem can actually help you wake up with a new perspective of the situation and feeling urber ralxed and ready to start the day with a positive attitude.

All these things combined help me feel relaxed and get me back to feeling positive. Let me know of any routines you guys do to chill out.

It has been such a long time since I posted a style look on here, life has a way of getting in the way and taking up all your time. In the past month I have changed jobs and moved house, which we are still unpacking and making our new house look like a home, so my blog has taken a back seat, but now I am back and have some exciting new pieces to show you guys.

Having some time off has made me miss doing my blog and the blogging community. It has also made me think about where I want to take my blog and I now have a few ideas for the next couple of months to really challenge myself within my style. Hopefully you guys will enjoy seeing where I take my blog over the next couple of months.

Anyway back to this outfit, it was so sunny last week so just had to get my legs out. Wearing my leather a line skirt with this new version of a white basic t-shirt. This outfit is perfect for running around town when I have a schedule full of meetings. Let me know your thoughts on the outfit and anything else you guys would love to see happen with my blog.

FARFETCH - THE INSIDERS GUIDE TO SS16

This post is all about changing up your wardrobe and injecting some newness to it with the help of Farfetch. As you guys already know I only like to follow a couple of trends each season that are still in keeping with my current basics and essential items. Below is an insider guide by Farfetch on key trends they feel are strong for this years summer season. Some of the industries top fashionistas are pushing trends like the pyjama two piece from Valentino and the off the shoulder look, which has translated from the catwalk straight down to the high street.

Blogging for me is a great way to express my love for certain trends I feel for and brands I believe in. Working within the fashion industry I start the design process by researching the catwalk and watching trends start to unfold is one of the most exciting parts of my job. So from having all this information I felt like I needed an outlet and that is why I started my blog. It is a way of expressing my love for fashion and brands I believe in!

FARFETCH - THE INSIDERS GUIDE TO SS16

The first wish list has a edgy chic style and inspired by the blogger Sara Arani. If you haven't check her out before then head over to her blog Style MBA to see her sleek city style. This outfit would be my ideal outfit for so many different events. All the pieces I have picked out can easily be interjected with my wardrobe. The off the shoulder top is a key piece for updating your look and is so easily worn here with these raw edge jeans for a fresh take on spring jeans. I wanted my accessories to pop against the muted tones so I picked out this pale blue handbag, green cat eye earrings and these bright orange mules. Another key and beautiful trend for S.S 16! To finish this outfit off I have added a long line blazer for a sleek finish.

This second outfit has more for a festival vibe, with all these items from various boutiques across London. In the summer I like to play around with different tops with cut off shorts. These Alexander Wang cut offs are so dreamy and teamed with this extreme bow top make a prefect outfit for the summer. I still love my black boots and can't get enough of these buckle western style boots to go with this outfit. To finish this look off a simple choker and a small leather over the shoulder tote, which is just big enough to carry a pair of sunnies, phone and little purse! What's so great about these items is that you can visit all the stores and try out these stunning pieces. Let me know your thoughts on both outfits.

QUAY SUNGLASSES GIVEAWAY

Coachella for me is the start of the festival season and a source of inspiration for my future festival wardrobe. I get so inspired by the festival style from Coachella that my festival outfits can take over my wardrobe. Preparation is key for your survival at a festival, from packing the right clothing to investing in a super comfy sleeping bag.

One item that is essential for me is sunglasses and you can never own enough in my opinion. Especially when you need to hide your tired eyes the morning after a night at Glastonbury! So I wanted to host my first ever giveaway with a product I love, Quay sunglasses. For me they create some of the best sunglasses on the market and for only £30 it would be so silly not to invest in a pair. However, instead of buying a pair I am offering one lucky follower the chance to WIN this pair of exclusive Mirror Cat Eye Sunglasses. I absolutely adore the mirror lens on these sunglasses and the marble printed frame is on point.

All you have to do to win this gorgeous pair of Quay sunglasses is follow me on my channels and leave a blog comment below with your favourite festival and why. It can be really simple, like 'my favourite festival is Glastonbury as there is such a wide range of musicians and it has such chilled boho vibes', or you can just give me a funny festival story!

Here are my terms and conditions: I will be running the contest for two weeks (competitions ends 5th May 11.59pm) and the lucky winner will be contacted on the 6th May. The winner is picked at random from rafflecopter and I will post the item out within 2 days of giveaway ending.  

Good luck guys!

I have seen so many bloggers cover the #mycalvins trend and I thought I would create an outfit in my own style around #mycalvins. The last couple of weeks I have focused my outfits posts on what I wear on a day to day basis and how I style it out with working in an office. Given that I work in an office where I don't have to wear office wear, I have created are some key simple looks that are easy and comfy to wear when I am sat designing all day. Here I have worn my black culottes from Zara, these are a key piece in my wardrobe that I find so easy to pair with tops. Like here with this Calvin Klein lose tank. Eveyone has their own version of #mycalvins and this lose fitting tank is mine. Not normally a branded girl but the Calvin Klein logo is so sleek and simple against the grey marl base.

The weather has been staying true to the term April showers. One day it's rainy and the next it's like high summer. With the sun shining bright the other day I risked wearing my Birckenstocks for the first time this year! You have no idea how good it feels to free my feet from its shackles of winter boots! To tie this outfit together I have worn the frayed denim jacket from Topshop, can not get enough of this jacket! Let me know your thoughts on the outfit.

Just to let you know I am hosting a giveaway next week in preparation for festival season, check back next Tuesday to see what it is!
