Monthly favourites #4

My monthly series, sharing the food, places, fashion, beauty and entertainment that I'm currently enjoying.

Monthly favourites #4 - FWIS photos & Rose Gold Goodies

1. Embracing the "from where i stand" style of photography whilst on holiday. A perfect way to document daily outfits, when there isn't time for a full on photo shoot. Also nice as i am able to include hubby in the shots, although they do get a little dull over the week as his style doesn't really change. This one was taken while waiting for a tram in Edinburgh.

2. My Rose Gold obsession has got worse...new coffee table book - The Luxe Life by Fleur de Force, a new iPad case from Amazon (our old one was just plain black, although not sure hubby is convinced about it) and this gorgeous little pineapple dish perfect for my collection of rose gold earrings.

Monthly favourites #4 - Scotland & Martha Moo

3. Beautiful bonny Scotland. Spent a week up north, in Edinburgh and at my in-laws new house in Pitlochry. A great excuse to really use my new camera, capturing the stunning scenery and holiday moments with my husband. This is my favourite shot from the week, the waterfall at the Hermatige, Dunkeld. Isn't nature amazing...

4. Martha Moo - the moment i saw this lip shade from Tanya Burr, i just knew it would be perfect for me. A gorgeous everyday matte shade, that stays on the lips all day and best of all only £5.99. Ordered it just in time, has been the most popular shade from the new range and has sold out....need to make this last!

Monthly favourites #4 - Scrapbooking & Sunglasses

5. Scrap-booking is one of my favourite ways to get inspired. While i do love my Pinterest boards, there is something really relaxing about sitting down with a stack of magazines and tearing out all the images i love - both articles and products. I then collate them all in an old scrapbook i have kept since i was an university, a source i regularly flick through for inspiration on blog posts and layouts.

6. Always on the hunt for storage solutions, i finally bought these clear acrylic drawers from Muji to store my favourite sunglasses in. Normally dotted around the house, this great set of drawers keeps them all in one place (bedroom window) whilst being able to see all the styles - perfect for grab and go.

Monthly favourites #4 - Wasabi & Harry Potter

7. During a recent trip to Birmingham, and walking through the new Grand Central station i discovered a great new food spot - Wasabi Sushi & Bento. While i am not a sushi fan i thoroughly enjoyed one of the hot bento boxes on offer and would definitely recommend it for lunch. I went for a sweet chilli chicken box, which came with rice and edamame bean salad - so yummy but it was very spicy (and i forgot to buy water!). 

8. Hands down my favourite books growing up, so i was intrigued by the latest book by J.K Rowling. Set 19 years after Voldemort was defeated, the book follows the life of Harry/Ginny/Hermione/Ron's children. An odd book to read based on the script format but i thoroughly enjoyed the plot and would now love it to be made into a film once the play has finished.

Monthly favourites #4 - The Big Bang Theory & New Boots

9. This month's TV show of choice, The Big Bang Theory. Such a great, feel good show, perfect chill time viewing but so easy to binge watch as the episodes are only 20 mins long #manyaweekendlost. If you haven't watched it yet, make to check it out - season 1-8 now on Netflix.

10. My new season ankle boots. I already own a few pairs of ankle boots, but they are all heeled and so i wanted to add a flat pair to my collection. This pair of western boots are so comfy and i love the simplicity, the textured upper and all the detailing on the buckles. Perfect styled with jeans for a casual look but they add a little more of a festival/rock chic edge to a feminine dress. Enjoying wearing now with bare legs but will also work well with tights when it gets cooler.
They are from ASOS and were £28.

Instagram accounts you should follow

Of all the platforms around in the social media world, Instagram is by far my favourite (although i am not loving the new Instagram stories) because as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words". It has in fact become something of an addiction, scrolling through beautiful imagery whenever i find myself at a loose end. I like to use my Instagram feed as an extension of my Pinterest boards, following people/brands that inspire me and so far these six ladies are top of the list.

All are within the fashion world, but with very different fashion tastes and style of photography but equally inspiring....if you follow anyone today make it one of these ladies.

Instagram accounts you should follow: @livpurvis
Who: Olivia Purvis
Blog: whatoliviadid.com

A British blogger, with a simplistic style which is a mix of pretty and vintage inspired pieces. Olivia's account has a great mix of fashion and lifestyle images, with lots of pink and girly touches. My favourite image here would have to be the Honey Bee dress and bag from Kate Spade - playful and girly, and who could resist the Minnie mouse ears?

Instagram accounts you should follow: @damselindior
Who: Jacey Duprie
Blog: damselindior.com

All about monochrome, Jacey's account is a collection of beautifully styled outfits and accessories. A lady who knows her style and has perfected the uniform for life, mixing casual looks filled with jeans and striped tees with feminine dresses, along with so many beautiful designer handbags and sunglasses. This feed is perfect for inspiration and styling tips - i am loving the lace top and straw hat combo above, wish i looked that stylish when i travel.

Instagram accounts you should follow: @blaireadiebee
Who: Blair Eadie
Blog: atlantic-pacific.blogspot.co.uk

Think Blair is still the #1 account i follow. This ladies style is impeccable and i am jealous of about 90% of her wardrobe. A super girly, girl with lots of pink, pastels and florals but balanced out with jeans, monochromes and pops of bold colour. Blair was actually featured in my Style Spotlight series, if you want to see more beautifully styled looks.

Instagram accounts you should follow: @emmarosethatcher
Who: Emma Rose Thatcher
Blog: astylealbum.com

The most recent discovery but one i am obsessed with. Emma has such great laid back style, mixing high-street with designer pieces effortlessly. I fell in love with her Instagram account when i saw the floral dress for Zara look, teaming something very feminine with casual western style ankle boots.

Instagram accounts you should follow: @agirlastyle
Who: Briony Whitehouse
Blog: agirlastyle.com

Loved the blog of the same name for years now, ever since i saw that Briony had an obsession with Mulberry like me. The perfect feed of girly dresses, denim and pearls...Briony has really cultivated her look and theme - you can see throughout all the posts, a very sophisticated girly style and always with her signature pearls. The blazer and Lulu Guinness cross-body look had me lusting after that bag for weeks (sadly sold out!)


Instagram accounts you should follow: @hannahfgale
Who: Hannah Gale
Blog: hannahgale.co.uk

Such a down to earth lady, keeps it real by showing not only her great style but also her life. Love that she is a kitty mum like me so plenty of cat pictures in her feed to. She isn't afraid of a good high-street bargain, regularly posting about Primark, making her really relatable. I actually think of all the ladies in this post my style is most like Hannah's and her account is not only a daily does of inspiration but a danger to my credit card!

48 Hours in Edinburgh

Wanted to share a little snapshot into the 48 hours i spent in the beautiful Scottish capital. A short pit stop in the city before heading North, so we wanted to see some of the sights and enjoy the culture of the city.

We arrived at around 10am, after only a 50 minute flight from Birmingham International (which is actually less time than it takes me to get the train to London), hopped on the city bus and headed to the centre to find our hotel. We stayed in the Haymarket Mecure hotel which was about a 10 minute walk from the centre. A lovely new, modern hotel perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring. We also found Loudons cafe & bakery, right round the corner, where we had breakfast both days of our trip - american style pancakes and bacon, the best way to start any day.

 One of the things I love about walking around somewhere new is seeing all the different elements and styles of architecture that make up a bustling city, and Edinburgh has some beautiful hidden gems. I have always love the horseshoe crescents nestled in and around the city - would love to live a beautiful old house like this, full of character.

48 Hours in Edinburgh - Architecture

Once we had checked in, we headed up to the Main Street - Princes street for some food. An impressive street that is around 1 mile long joining Lothian Road in the west to Leith Street in the east. Plus with virtually no buildings on the south side, it gives you some great panoramic views of the Old Town, Edinburgh Castle, and the valley in-between which has beautiful parks and open spaces to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

Once there, hubby chose Ryan's bar, which was perfectly situated for getting our bearings, plus yummy food and a much needed coffee. Then it was off for a spot of shopping - it would be rude not to when in the capital (hello huge Primark and H&M Home!!!), plus i had to pick up a copy of the new Harry Potter book (Potter geek and proud of it!).

48 Hours in Edinburgh - Green Spaces
48 Hours in Edinburgh - Usher Hall

The Castle


I remember visiting the castle when i was a child, and it hasn't lost any of its wow factor. Nestled on the rock over looking the city, the impressive building is the focal point of the city and hard to miss. Sadly we didn't go inside the castle, just not enough time but on the list for our next visit, however the views and gardens around the castle are stunning, and you can really appreciate the grandeur and sense of history. Plus we weren't able to appreciate the castle courtyard fully as the Edinburgh Tattoo festival happens the week after leave, so there are lots of preparations and seating stands being set up.

 The Zoo


The one place that i had to visit while we were here - not the biggest Zoo in the world, but for me one of the weirdest locations, in a bustling capital city, but a great way to spend the afternoon. Home to some of my favourite animals - the majestic Giant Panda who was chillin, the mischievous meerkats and the more obscure tapir, which had the most adorable baby running around. A few of my favourites shots below - i get a little "snap happy" around animals and didn't think this would be the best post if it was just endless shots of animals. I can clearly remember the entrance to the zoo from a childhood visit, i think it was all the beautiful foliage that stuck in my mind and it looks just how i remember.

48 Hours in Edinburgh - The Zoo

Getting Around


Found getting around Edinburgh so easy, so many options - bus, tram or by foot and unlike other big cities, relatively cheap (day ticket only £4). Although we did spend most of our time exploring on foot, as i find you can always see more of a city especially all the little side streets. Plus we actually had amazing weather, so wanted to make the most of it, but the bus and tram we did take were so easy and really well signposted, with lots of information boards.

48 Hours in Edinburgh - Trams

 The Outfits


So travelling with hand luggage meant packing light so kept my outfits simple for the trip. Loved both of these but only managed to get a full length picture of the Sunday look - this dress was a bargain from H&M and is proving to be a summer staple, i just added a little khaki jacket on top in case i got chilly.



Really like these "From where I stand" shots - not always time to take full on outfit photos, especially on holiday but these capture the days outfit and it was nice to get hubby in there too (although less style variation for him). Loved the thistle carpet in the hotel, made a great background.

48 Hours in Edinburgh - FWIS

 The Details & Links


The Hotel - Mecure Edinburgh Haymarket
Flight from Birmingham - Flybe
The yummiest breakfasts - Loudons Cafe & Bakery
Great lunch menu - Ryan's Bar & Resturant
Amazing homemade burgers - Mckirdys Steakhouse
Be sure to book the Panda viewing - Edinburgh Zoo
The castle - Edinburgh Castle
Getting around - Lothian Bus / Edinburgh Tram

So much more to do and see in Edinburgh, think we may need a return visit at some point.
Now we are headed North to Pitlochry.....to continue our little Scottish adventure.

Have you been to Edinburgh, do you have any recommendations for my next visit?

August 2016 Wishlist

Brocade Ankle Boots | Off the Shoulder Top | Stripe & Floral mixed print T Shirt | Printed Soft Blazer
Miffy Cashmere Jumper | Poppy Satchel Backpack | Pompom Clutch | Zip Sleeve Jumper | Tune Out Headphones
                                          

A mix of transitional pieces and a touch of fun for August.....

Can we start by talking about these ASOS boots, how gorgeous? The sock book silhouette and the intricate brocade, make these something special, a great highstreet statement piece - would team with a pair of black skinny jeans and the cute Chinti & Parker Miffy cashmere jumper

The Topshop soft blazer is something i need to add to my work wardrobe. Perfect for throwing on over a simple tee or a dress - the print is very subtle but elevates it from a simple black blazer.

The odd piece on this wishlist is the headphones....i have never before wanted a pair of large headphones, much prefer the in ear style from Happy Plugs, however when i saw these from Typo i decided i need to give them a try. Love the colour, the rose gold hardware and the simple spot print - the perfect combo.

Finally this zip sleeve jumper is so quirky and individual, don't think i have ever seen anything else like it. Love that it is a simple textured grey knit but with this pop of colour and detail on the sleeves. I like to have pieces like this is my wardrobe as they are great layering basics but this kind of detail just makes them a little more special.

Which is your favourite piece this month? Leave me a comment below to have your say...

Chloé Susanna boots

If money were no object, i would love nothing more than a wardrobe full of designer shoes - unlike bags, where i will always go for something classic and timeless, i love the fun element that designer shoes bring to an outfit especially if they are from brands like Sophia Webster, Valentino or Manolo Blahnik. There are a couple of pricey pairs sat on my wishlist, but top of that list are the Chloé Susanna ankle boots. Not a new style, these beauties have been around for a few years now but that is a good sign - they have stood the test of time, becoming a cult classic and to my excitement have sparked a trend for ornate buckled boots on the highstreet for AW16....

Now lets get real here....at around the £800 price point, these boots are an investment piece and no matter how much i love them, i do not have the money to spend on adding them to my wardrobe....i am definitely more Primark than Prada. So i have found some great highstreet dupes, that are much more purse friendly and all under £100!

Chloé Susanna dupes


Oddly not my normal style of ankle boot, i usually go for something with a heel and that are a little more feminine, but i just love the edgy styling of the Susanna and the attention to detail in both buckles and the toe embellishment. Plus they look gorgeous styled with both jeans and dresses, adding a little edge to a really feminine outfit. Now I know the Topshop pair isn't a traditional boot but i loved the modern twist and mixed textures on the upper so much, i just had to include them, plus they would be a great pair for warmer weather.

While scrolling through my feed, i was really inspired by two Instagram lovelies and their outfit of the day shots, styling the boots with mini, midi & maxi dresses effortlessly #wardrobejealousy...be sure to check them out.

Now I know the Topshop pair isn't a traditional boot but i loved the modern twist and mixed textures on the upper so much, i just had to include them, plus they would be a great pair for warmer weather.

While scrolling through my feed, i was really inspired by two Instagram lovelies and their outfit of the day shots, styling the boots with mini, midi & maxi dresses effortlessly #wardrobejealousy...be sure to check them out.
