Blossoming Gifts


Hello loves!
I was contacted right back in December  by Blossoming Gifts*. Blossoming Gifts is a basically an online florist they offer a wide range of flowers and gifts for all occasions. They can be delivered 7 days a week plus they offer next day delivery. It's such a great service to have available!

Blossoming Gifts kindly offered to send me a bouquet of flowers. Now it took me so long to decide. I literally spent hours deciding which to choose because the range was so big I couldn't decide! In the end I went for white roses & lilies which are actually my favourite flowers. I couldn't wait for them to arrive! I love having fresh flowers around in my house. 

My flowers arrived a few days later and I was nervous about the delivery and whether they were going to be ok when they arrived. They came in a huge box however with lots of protection and the flowers were absolutely fine. My initial worry had completely vanished when I pulled out the beautiful flowers. 



It was nice to also see that all the care instructions for the flowers were included. I'm not claiming to be an expert on keeping flowers alive so I was thankful for the advice haha! I arranged the flowers in a vase and they sat with pride on the dining room table. I honestly loved them so much!

I would totally recommend using this website to you. Especially for occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays etc. Even as a last minute gift this would be great if you didn't have time to go out and get something. The flowers were all fresh and lasted longer than I expected as well which was great. 

Prices range from £16 - £100 there honestly is something there for everyone. What's great is I've also got a discount code for you which will give you a massive 33% discount. If you use the code BGIFTS33 at the checkout!

If you want to check out Blossoming Gifts make sure you follow the link HERE.

Let me know in the comments what your favourite types of flowers are I'd love to know!

I hope you enjoyed this post,

Wasting My Young Years


I feel like I'm drifting at this stage of my life. Drifting between different realities of my life and what I want to become. I can't believe that I'm coming up to 20 years old this year. I'm not a child or a kid or whatever any more. Yet I can't quite seem go get to grips with adult life yet. 

I still don't know who I want to be... I don't know what I want to do with my life. Do I get to the point where it's too late to decide and there's no point? Because I definitely feel like I'm heading there.

I have so much envy for my friends and others that are studying or have a job in something they love. That are doing something that they want with their life. Whereas I'm just over here struggling to come to terms with the simple concepts of life. Sometimes I just feel like I might as well give up. I'm going around and around in circles and not getting anywhere. 

I have so many regrets already at 20 years old about who I am today and about what I haven't done with my life. I've done so many things to please other people that I've done nothing for myself. I didn't study the subjects I wanted too and I didn't grab the opportunity to do the things that I secretly loved. Am I still doing that now? I don't know... Am I wasting my young years? Well maybe I've already wasted them... I just don't know.

"I don't know" is becoming one of my most used phrases. I don't have the answers to any of the questions I'm asking of my life. Yet I so desperately want them... I want someone to tell me what to do, to tell me what I'm good at or what I'll become. I just can't ever seem to make the right decision.

So I'm back to the drifting feeling like I'm going through my life without a purpose at the moment. Without a sense of meaning of what I'm here to do. I want to make a difference to this world and I don't want to keep on drifting. I want to become someone who I can look back on and be like you've done everything you were here to do. I don't want to waste my life or my existence.

I sometimes feel like I'm naive in the sense that I'm so desperately clinging onto the idea that my dreams are going to come true. Honestly how many people can you say that happens too? But you never know. I want mine to come true yet I'm doing nothing about it. Again how am I going to be who I'm supposed to become if I don't try anything.

I'm full of fear that I'm not going to become the person that I want to be. That I'm not going to become the idea that little me used to dream of 20 year old me. I want to be her but I'm not. 

So I'm starting from the beginning again and trying to piece myself and my life back together. Trying to find things that I enjoy again. Trying new things even though it absolutely terrifies the life out of me. 

I know not everyone has the answers of who they want to be at an even older age than me... I know I'm still young and I've got time but unfortunately patience never was my thing. I just need time to discover life again and everything that comes with it... Everything that I feel like I've lost.

I need time but I'm not going to keep on drifting anymore.

It's time I stopped and faced my fears.

It's time that I start living.

Thank you for reading,

Can You Be Too Young To Fall In Love?


Hi sweethearts,

Today's question is... Can you be too young to fall in love?

The word love comes with such a great importance to everyone. We all strive for love in our life whether it be obvious or secretly. It's something we all crave and want in life to be happy. There's the greater argument of what love is.

The dictionary definition of love is "a strong feeling of affection". I personally think that doesn't even cover the meaning of love. The feeling of loving someone is so much more powerful than strong. It can take over you to the point it's all you think of from when you wake up to when you fall asleep.

We feel all sorts of different kind of love from when we are first born to when we become adolescents. We assume we know what love is as an adolescent but I'm not sure we'll ever really be able to pinpoint the definition of love. We get so many ideas from literature, social media etc. it's hard to form an opinion on your own definition of love.

They say their are symptoms to falling in love. Whether it be feeling completely comfortable with that person and being able to tell them everything or wanting to be around them every second of the day and never letting them go. Can we ever prove these actions mean we have fallen in love?

I mean when we say "I love you" do we ever really know what we're saying or is it just something we've gotten use to saying. 

Going back to my question of can we be too young to fall in love? Well to be honest I don't think you can be too young to fall in love. How can we be too young to feel an emotion towards someone. There's so many conflicting opinions on the question!

I think people who say you can be too young to fall in love tend to think others who say you can't be are naive. I'm not naive I know for a fact that love doesn't last forever. That we don't live those happily ever afters you read in fairytales. We are all human we all have flaws and sometimes that comes with tribulations. Not everything is meant to last forever but it's all part of growing up.
I feel if we were too young to fall in love then we'd never have the experience to learn about how to love someone or what it's like to feel love for someone.

The argument is that we are still growing as a person at a young age and it's why we are too young to fall in love. Who says we can't grow with that other person though? 

However I think at a young age when we are in so called love we sometimes need to be reminded that we have our whole lives ahead of us. We have so many important decisions to make that can affect our future at such a young age. We can't let one person dictate what we do because I mean we can never predict or know the future. You might love that person so much in the moment but you never know what can happen in a day or a month or a year. We all make mistakes at a young age it doesn't mean we're immature. We need to make mistakes otherwise we'd never learn about how to get anything right. 

I first fell in love when I was 14 and I firmly believe your first love you will always remember. Everything felt different at that time and I felt different. I suddenly has this realisation I knew what love was to me. The strange thing is at 19 now I haven't felt that way about anyone since really. I've never felt that much love for one person than I did then. I've been attracted to people... I've liked people but I've never loved again since then. If I didn't fall in love at such a young age then I wouldn't know the difference, I think that proves to me we're never to young to fall in love.

At the same time however I get constantly frustrated of the overuse of the word "love". I feel like its come so common to use we throw it around too casually and with a meaning it doesn't deserve. However I don't think that's down to someones age. It's down to the overuse of the word in the media. It's down to everything we've been told what love is... You can't teach a person what love is they have to feel it otherwise they'll never know.

I don't think we are too young to fall in love but I'd love to know what you think in the comments! I feel like this topic isn't taboo at all but for some reason it's just not something we ever really discuss and I'd like that to change. I want to discuss what it feels like to fall in love and when we felt we first fell in love. 

I hope you enjoyed this different sort of topic post,
Thank you for reading,

10 Facts You Don't Know About Me...


Hello loves! I was thinking the other day about how I forget that a lot of you that read my blog don't actually know me in real life. It hit me how much that you actually don't know about me. I sometimes forget that you only really see the parts of my life that I post online or on my blog. I thought this post could be a bit of fun and just a chance for you to get to know me just that little bit better. So here are ten facts that you don't know about me:

I absolutely love singing, dancing & acting; it's when I feel most happiest and most free. 
I've been dancing since I was about 3 and singing since I could basically talk. I'll never forget the days as a child I used to record myself on a cassette tape haha. Acting is something new but actually what I enjoy most. I love musical theatre but I really want to do screen acting. I always used to dream of winning a National Television Award when I was little and it's still a dream now!

I'm obsessed with watching Casualty & Holby City.
To be honest you probably already know this of you follow me on Twitter or Tumblr because on a Tuesday and a Saturday you'll no doubt see me talking about the shows whilst they're on. If you're not from the UK basically both shows are medical dramas. I absolutely love them so much I can literally quote whole episodes of both Casualty and Holby City. 

When I was a child I once licked a freezer and my tongue got stuck to it...
This is a true story and I'm not proud of it. Whatever possessed little me to lick a freezer is absolutely beyond me. I guess it's a weird/funny sort of story to tell now though. I'm not sure many people can say they've ever got their tongue stuck to a freezer haha. 

I have never broken a bone...
Considering how accident prone I am this is a miracle because I'm beyond clumsy. However maybe I shouldn't of mentioned this because I feel like I've just jinxed myself!

I have the worst memory EVER.
I can forget something someone has told me about 30 seconds ago. I quite often find myself going up the stairs in my house to get something, getting up their and forgetting what I've gone up for. Please tell me it's not just me that does this?! 

I'm awful at sports but love watching them.
I've always given every sport a go with the most effort and enthusiasm as  could growing up but unfortunately none of them really seemed to be my thing. Although I'm not good at sports I could watch them all the time. Athletics is definitely my go-to to watch. I get so excited every time the Olympics come around too.

I have the best poker face.
If you don't know what a poker face is it's basically an expression that hides what you're feeling. It's part of the reason that I can lie for England. I mean obviously I don't condone lying but back when I was at school it served it's purpose when I needed to make excuses about why I hadn't done my homework. 

I've only ever been clubbing twice and I will never go again.
No clubbing is not my thing at all. I don't really have much else to say other than I prefer my bed and I like waking up fresh faced in the mornings haha.

Whatever situation I'm going through I have to find a song to go with it.
I'm not sure if this is weird or not I've never really explained this to anyone. So if somethings happened and I'm feeling super happy or whatever. I'll search for a song that will fit with what I'm feeling and the situation I'm in. I just really like connecting songs with emotions and times in my life because then when I listen back to them I can connect to the memories linked with the song. No idea if that made sense but I'm hoping someone got me... Right?

I absolutely LOVE the Eurovision!
I've always loved the Eurovision ever since I was a child. So much I actually like to score each of the acts myself... I know you're laughing but let me live my life ok haha. I still have the high hopes that the UK will win one day and I'll be able to go watch it here... You never know do you!

I really hope you enjoyed this post and it feels like you know me a little bit better. You'll get to know soon enough I'm a little bit weird and crazy but it's just how I like myself... I mean if I wasn't weird I'd be boring right? 
I'd love if you could leave maybe 3 facts about yourself in the comments so I could get to know you a little better too!

Thank you for reading,

Valentines Day Make-Up Look


Hello sweethearts! So it's Valentines Day this week... A day I can't quite tell if I love or hate. I have conflicting feelings about a day all about expressing love.

Handbag Essentials


Hello my darlings, I thought it had to be about time I did a handbag essentials post! I love to organise my bag all the time... I'm not sure why. I think I like the thought that I have everything I could ever need with me haha. I pretty much own Mary Poppins bag I have that much stuff. I promise I've narrowed it down to my absolute essentials that I definitely wouldn't leave without!

Deodorant
For the obvious reasons I won't leave without a can of deodorant... I don't want to smell ever! If I ever go on a long walk or I'm on the tube and it's really hot I'm going to need to use some. I always use Dove's Aerosol Deodorant personally and you can get a travel size one from Superdrug which is the perfect size for storing in our handbag.

Body Mist/Perfume
I always carry body mist or perfume with me again because I obviously want to smell nice. I always use it in the morning but the smell obviously tends to ware off in the day so I like it on hand to spritz some more. My current pick for my handbag is Zoella's Sweet Inspirations Body Mist. It's my favourite smell I'm sure you will have seen me mention it before. The bottles aren't too big and I can usually find space to store it in my handbag.

Hand Sanitiser
Hand sanitiser is a necessity for my handbag for hygiene reasons and I will not leave without it. If I have to use a public toilet or if I'm travelling a lot on the tube it'll be the thing I reach out of my handbag most. I currently have a bottle of Zoella Hand Of Heart Hand Gel. Perfect size for my handbag and also the nicest smelling hand sanitiser you'll ever own... Trust me!

Tissues
Tissues are always handy and honestly you never know if you're going to need one so best be prepared. If not for you someone else will always need one and I feel better being able to offer them out. I always buy the 6 packs of tissues from the supermarket as obviously it's not practical to carry around a whole box!

Powder
Thankfully I've never forgotten my powder before because honestly who wants a shiny face! I haven't got oily skin so I don't get too shiny. However I prefer powdering halfway through the day just to make sure especially on my T-zone etc. I always take the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent. It's honestly the best powder I've ever used and it's totally affordable!

Mascara
I can't be the only one that's guilty of leaving it really late to get ready am I? I'm sure I'm not but it means sometimes I don't get a chance to do my make-up before I leave. I'm not really bothered about face make-up on these days but I have to wear mascara to feel alive haha. Meaning I always carry one as I have now mastered the art of doing my mascara on the train, tube... Anywhere! My current favourites are Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara & Volumeyes Plus Active Mascara.

Mirror
Again I always need a mirror because I pretty much always do my make-up on the train now. I currently have a gorgeous one from Ted Baker which I'm not sure is available anymore. Alternatively there are beautiful copper compact mirrors from Primark available still for only £1... I literally own about 5 of them!

Hand Cream
This is one of those hand bag essentials that I only carry in the colder months. I don't really ever need to reach for hand cream in the summer but in the winter my hands need it to survive. I'm currently using Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream. I absolutely love this hand cream! It's one of those products it smells so good you just want to eat it. 

Lipstick 
I love my lipsticks but sometimes I honestly don't bother putting one on only to regret it halfway through the day. I always keep my most used and loved lipsticks in my handbag for one of those days. My favourites are Tanya Burr Lipstick in Pink Cocoa  & Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Tulle.

Sunglasses
I carry my sunglasses around all year round because somehow I've gotten into the habit of wearing them when it's not even sunny... I mean I'm not sure it's very socially acceptable but it's fashion right?! I only own one pair of sunglasses because they're prescription ones and I can't see with normal ones so these go everywhere with me haha.

Moleskine & Pen
If you don't know what a Moleskine is it's basically a journal or mini sketchbook. I always carry around an A5 Moleksine with me. If you didn't know I studied art and I still like to draw and explore the concept of art even now. I always make sure I have a pen so I can start doodling. I find being out and about can be the most inspiring for me when it comes to art ideas.

Hairbands & Hairbrush
I've got super long hair so on a windy or rainy day I always desperately need a hair brush. I'll stand in more than likely a public toilet trying to desperately pull my hairbrush through my tangled and knotted hair and when I finally do it looks absolutely awful. I know it's a glamorous image isn't it?! So I always keep a hairband in their to tie it up if it comes to desperate measures!

Headphones
I can't function properly without headphones. I mean to be honest I travel a lot of places alone meaning I haven't got anyone to talk too. So I need my headphones for music or audio books to keep me sane because I can't handle silence it's way too awkward for me. 

Phone Charger
I carry a phone charger the obvious reason that I always constantly use my phone when I'm out. So much that I have to find a café or somewhere with a plug available to charge it. I can't tell you the amount of times I've had to ask at a train station if they have a plug I can charge my phone in... It's always embarrassing every time I have to ask.

Purse
Ok so I don't actually ever see many people mention their purse in their handbag essentials... But I mean it has my money in and I can't really do anything without that haha.

I really hope you enjoyed this post! I'd love to know in the comments what you think classes as an essential and what your handbag essentials are! I honestly think I carry way too much in handbag but I'm always overly organised to go anywhere... It can't just be me, is it?!

How I Edit My Instagram Photos

Hello Darlings! There's nothing more that I love than taking photographs. I've constantly got a camera of some form attached to my hand. I love being able to take photos and to look back at all the memories; it's part of the reason I love Instagram. I'm quite a creative person anyway and I find Instagram is a way for me to express myself through my own photography.

I have been trying a little harder with Instagram lately to make it a lot more prettier to look at haha. Hopefully some of you have noticed the change. I used to not really bother and post any old picture I liked in any order now I'm a but more fussy haha. I have a sort of theme going on that I quite like at the moment. I thought I'd share with you how I edit my photos for my current Instagram theme.


Camera
I mostly use my Olympus Pen EPL7 to take all of my Instagram photos. It's also the camera that I use for all my blog photos too. I honestly rate it as one of the best cameras around I don't even pick up my DSLR camera anymore... That's how much I love it! It's pretty much to me my bloggers holy grail haha. Alternatively if I'm travelling a further distance and don't have my camera to hand I use my iPhone 7 which has an amazing camera for a phone. I'd say my photos are probably 90% Olympus Pen and 10% iPhone & on my Instagram.

Apps
I use three apps mainly which are VSCO, Facetune and Aviary. I always use VSCO on every photo that I take I pretty much swear by it for editing photos. It's got the best filters going and I use it to work out which photos will work in my theme. I totally recommend you check it out if you haven't... It will change your Instagram game dramatically! Facetune I use if I need any backgrounds whitening as it's perfect for this. If you're looking to have a clean white and fresh theme it may be worth checking out and purchasing the app. Aviary is just my handy app if I ever need to quickly change the brightness, contrast or sharpness of an image etc. It's a super quick and easy to use app plus it's totally free which is a bonus.

Editing Process

The two photos I've shown above I used the same editing process for. I only used the app VSCO for both of these. I usually turn the brightness down slightly to start with on my photos. I find with the filters I use that this makes them look the best. The filters I use on my photos for my current theme are P5 and B1. After I've used a filter I'll up the contrast and clarity only slightly. I don't tend to change the highlight or shadow of my photos. I always make sure to sharpen them as well which makes them look 100% better!

I really hope you enjoyed this little insight into my Instagram! I'd love to know what your best photo editing apps are in the comments. Also if you have instagram make sure you include a link in the comments below and I'll follow you as well!

Motivational Music Playlist


Hello gals & guys! I thought it was about time to share another of my many music playlists. This year I'm planning on getting as much work done as possible; blog-wise and in my personal life too. Which means some days I definitely am needing that extra motivation when it comes to the work I have planned for the day. I'm not sure what it is about some music but I find it definitely helps me focus and concentrate to make sure I get everything done in the day. I've also adapted a new exercise plan every week and I need the music if I'm going to get through a run alive haha. There is a mix of new to old songs. Listening to all of the lyrics to all of the songs they all have a varying message of motivation.

Here are all the songs that have been keeping me feeling upbeat and motivated so far this year:

- Never Give Up by Sia

- Masterpiece by Jessie J

- War Rages On by Alex Clare

- Cannonball by Little Mix

- Fight Song by Rachel Platten

- HEAVEN by Troye Sivan

- Rockabye (Jack Wins Remix) by Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie

- Breathing Underwater by Emeli Sandé

- Rooting For You by London Grammar

- Brave, Honest, Beautiful by Fifth Harmony

- The Greatest by Sia

- That's My Girl by Fifth Harmony

- Strong by London Grammar

- Weightless by Layla

- Alive by Sia

I really hope you get the same motivation out of this playlist as I do. Make sure you go and check these songs out! I do think motivation comes natural when it comes the the activities and the things we love... However we all have bad days when all we want to do is binge watch TV series. We shouldn't feel guilty about needing something to help motivate us.

My favourite motivational quote is:
"It always seems impossible until it's done." - Nelson Mandela

I really hope you enjoyed this post!
Let me know in the comments how you keep motivated I'd love to know!

Blogosphere Valentines Tea Party

 

Hello loves! I'm so excited about sharing this post with you. I recently went to the Blogosphere Valentines Tea Party. It was such an amazing day and I couldn't wait to share with you all about my day and the event. Before the event I travelled over to Notting Hill to meet fellow bloggers Nirvana and Serena who were also attending the event. We decided to have some lunch together at Pizza Express beforehand. I hadn't been to Pizza Express in literally like 5 years or something haha. The meal was so good but so huge I was never going to finish it. 

After having lunch we headed over to Southwark for the event which was at the Tropical Library, Lumiere London. I'd never heard of it before but I'd had a look at a Google Maps beforehand to try and plan the route. It wasn't that far from the tube station and I thought it would be an easy walk.... Turns out it wasn't haha. Safe to say we got a little lost but after a lot of wondering and help from a lady on her balcony we eventually found it! The Tropical Library itself was totally not what I was expecting. I absolutely loved it it's probably the most instagramable place I've been ever haha! It definitely thought it was the perfect place to hold an event.


Everyone was beyond lovely there as always. I find events like this as well as so good for networking with brands but also getting lots of tips etc. from other bloggers. I forget that I haven't actually been doing that of this long so any tips I'm grateful for. I was so excited as always to get to hear from different brands. All of them I'll include so you can learn a little more about them!

Pearl And Groove
Thought I definitely needed to give a mention to Pearl And Groove. On our way in to the event there were and a table of cakes provided by Pearl And Groove. They almost looked so stunning that you kind of didn't want to eat them haha... That might just be me though. All the cakes were gluten free which was even better because I prefer eating anything gluten free. I regret not actually trying once because they looked so nice! So I'll definitely be heading over to their bakery on Portobello road soon. You can check them out their website HERE.




Dr Lipp
It was so great to get to talk about Dr Lipp's Original Nipple Balm. Before you get confused by the name let me explain haha. This balm cannot only be used for chapped lips but for dry skin patches, burns, split ends... Plus more! It's totally amazing and the dual purpose is what makes this product so original. Plus it's all 100% natural which makes me feel even better for using it! I can't wait to try it out as I do suffer with dry lips. I'll make sure to update you on what I think. if you want to check out Dr Lipp visit their website HERE.

SAMAYA
SAMAYA is a relatively new all natural skin care brand. They specialise in doing cleanser, anti-ageing cream and anti-ageing treatment oil. The skin care brand are based on the 'Ayurvedic Principles' which help you achieve a 'perfect balance' in your life starting with your skin. There are three types of the skin care products VATA, PITTA and KAPHA. What's really great is you can go onto their website and do a quiz to see which would be more suitable for you. You can check their website out HERE



Kat Von D
I'm sure we've all heard of Kat Von D! It's probably been one of the most talked about make-up brands so far this year. The brand is originally American however has just launched in Debenhams recently. I've been wanting for so long to try some of their products especially the 'Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks' which I was lucky enough to be able to swatch. Plus we got to see some products that will be released shortly in the UK... Trust me you should get excited! Although I didn't have time, Kat Von D were also colour matching with their 'Lock-It Liquid Foundation'. I need to get my hands on it if you like high coverage foundation then go and purchase it. It honestly works wonders. You can shop the products on Debenhams HERE.

Glo&Ray
I've heard of but never tried anything from Glo&Ray. So I was so excited to get to look at all their products. Instantly I fell in love with the matte lipsticks. I will definitely be trying more of Glo&Ray's products. Everything is relatively affordable and won't break your bank account which is even greater. I've got a matte lipsticks, an eyeliner and a brow pencil to try. I will definitely be writing a review when I've tried out the products. If you want to check out the website you can visit it HERE.



The Duppy Share
As we arrived at The Tropical Library The Duppy Share were there to serve us their LoveDup punch. It looked so good and although I don't drink I though I'd give it a try. I've never had rum before so this was my first time giving it a go. Personally it was way too strong for me but I'm not used to drinking haha! If you like rum though go and check them out HERE.

Book Your Lifestyle
Book Your Lifestyle have over 150 spas & salons in London. You can go online and book beauty treatments online so if you're looking for a bit of pampering definitely go and check them out. I can;t wait to hopefully work with them in the future so watch this space. If you want to see what treatments and services they offer visit their website HERE.


The Flash Pack
I absolutely love The Flash Pack! They offer unique photo booths for events, parties etc. At Blogosphere Valentines we were able to post for the front cover of the magazine which was so fun. We got a print out and I had mine emailed to me too. I absolutely love it! I'll definitely be looking at them for any future events that I organise. Check them out HERE.

Overall I literally had the BEST day ever! I was so glad that I was able to go and I'm forever grateful for all the opportunities I get. Thank you to all the amazing gals at Blogosphere for organising the event. This is my 3rd Blogosphere event and I always have an amazing time. After Blogosphere Valentines I go home and honestly I felt so super inspired and motivated. It really just showed me where all this work can take me. I forget sometimes that I've not even been blogging for a year yet and I still can't quite believe how much I've achieved already! I'm actually super proud of myself and why shouldn't I be. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has to bring and hopefully more Blogosphere events.

I really hoped you enjoyed reading this post,

February 2017 Topshop Wish List


Hello Loves! Can you believe that it's the start of February already because I feel like I've slept through half this month haha. I always think a new month is an excuse to buy new clothes to be honest. Especially since it's February and I'm single so I'm compensating for Valentines Day haha. I was browsing Topshop the other day and they are absolutely killing the fashion game at the moment. I'm all about pastels, frills, lace and pink this February! I thought I'd share with you all my top picks.





 Utility Peg Trousers £39 | '80s Leather Aviator Jacket by Boutique £325 | Pinspot Sheer Ruffle Sleeve Top £36



I really hope you enjoyed my February Topshop picks. Hopefully it maybe inspires you outfit-wise. I'm so desperately trying to inject a little bit of colour in my wardrobe after suddenly realising all the clothes I own are basically black... Tell me I'm not the only one!?! 

Let me know in the comments what you're wishing for this month and you're favourite places to shop! 

I hope you enjoyed this post,
Thank you for reading,
Alice-Tilly
