I Lost Money In The Sales…

I Lost Money In The Sales…

Christmas was great, right? We all ate ourselves into a coma, wore pyjamas for consecutive days and played board games like our lives depended on it. All in all – we survived. But, how are we supposed to survive the ‘Boxing day’ and January sales that are projectile vomiting into our eyes. Ok, so that was a gross image but there really is no other way to describe the surge of panic I feel when I see ‘SALE’ signs strewn everywhere. It’s no secret that I love clothes. I didn’t start a blog called , ‘I Blog The Fashion’ to talk about my mainstream love of fluffy dogs and all things that sparkle. With these things in mind, it’s a no brainer that the High Street sales send me into a near breakdown. We all get some Christmas dollar from our families, even if it’s a fiver from Grandma. We’d…

Why You Can’t Borrow My Clothes

Why You Can’t Borrow My Clothes

Warning: The post contains enhanced opinions, brutal honesty with some light-hearted humour. Thanks for reading this warning, it is now over – enjoy 🙂 I don’t like sharing. I’m sorry if this makes me mean, unkind or inhuman but my stuff is my stuff – mitts off. To be brutally honest, I don’t like you even gawping at my things – I get somewhat territorial. Like a lioness around her cubs, my things (especially my clothes) are my babies. I don’t like potential threats. I suppose I don’t really know when all this started, but I’d like to get something straight – You can’t borrow my clothes. I am all for kindness. I consider it a wondrous quality that is so unique to find in a person. I almost shed a tear when someone smiles back at me – please be my friend, kind soul. I would like to think…

I Wear Boys Clothes and I’m a Girl

I Wear Boys Clothes and I’m a Girl

It always baffles me that with all the progression in gender ‘accepting’, more shops and brands haven’t adapted a ‘gender fluid’ clothing range. By that I simply mean, clothes that aren’t targeted to either boys or girls but embrace the two. I know that some stores have changed the ‘segregation’ of the genders by not labelling the ‘women’ and ‘men’ sections and have merged the gender departments. I suppose there are pros and cons of this. Pros are that it’s a step in the direction of change and is challenging the men/women segregation found within fashion. But the cons are that for ‘girly girls’ and ‘masculine men’ – finding clothes becomes a little bit harder. I’d think that my style is a combination of ‘tomboy’ and ‘ultra girly girl’. Some days I want to wear my tiara, others days I want to wear my armour. I dress depending on my…

Boohoo Fashion Resolutions / Braving the co-ord

Boohoo Fashion Resolutions / Braving the co-ord

— I’M WEARING– Boohoo Co-ord*  / Adidas Stan Smith Trainers & Boohoo necklaces* We all make New Year’s resolutions – whether they’re unpublished or announced for all to hear, we’ve made them. To be honest, we either purposefully forget them come 1st January (because let’s face it, they were a little too ambitious in the first place) or we try hard to maintain them and stay proud for months after. I am hoping that my resolutions will remain intact throughout 2016.  This year I made a general ‘2016 Bucket List’ – they were my resolutions compiled with things I want to do. However, it wasn’t until I got an e-mail from Boohoo about fashion resolutions that I thought to myself – ‘why have I never made one before?’. Most of us focus our resolutions on diet changes, productive qualities and motivational habits. But why do we forget about fashion and beauty resolutions? Maybe you…

NYE Party Outfit Ideas

NYE Party Outfit Ideas

Now that the seasonal stress is over, the next thing on everyone’s mind is – ‘what am I going to wear for New Year’s Eve?!’. If you prefer a quiet night in, you’ll already know you’ll be wearing your Christmas PJ’s whilst curled up on the sofa. For the rest of us (who are definitely secretly envious of you) – we remain clueless as to what we are going wear. If only I could depart wearing my new Olaf pyjamas paired with heels. Unfortunately, social protocol means that pyjamas would be highly inadvisable – after all, we want to keep our friends as we enter into the New Year. So, here are some ‘fashionable’ ideas that I’ve rustled up. There is just enough time to snap up something from the sales and add some new additions into our New Year wardrobe! Outfit 1 Topshop Cut-Out Side Crop Top £16  Miss…

This Elf Shopped Online This Year…

This Elf Shopped Online This Year…

To clarify, I have been one of ‘Santa’s little helpers’ for a few years now. I’m not going to deny it – when the season is in full swing, so is the stress hormone. There are many Elves like me rushing around at this time of year. Some get their jobs done far sooner than December – these Elves have my utmost admiration; my Elf hat goes off to you, my friend. However, the majority of us are a little bit unorganised, leaving all festivities and planning until the month of December. There’s a part of me that thinks Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the mad ‘pressie’ dash. Where’s the fun in a super organised, structured Christmas? Christmas is supposed to have its ‘moments’ – just like life. But when it’s Christmas, everything will be okay in the end – even if you end up with burnt turkey (what are…

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

UNIF FROST JUMPER / TOPSHOP JEANS / ADIDAS SUPERSTAR TRAINERS I have been living every day in my UNIF Frost Jumper ever since I managed to steal it from their website. Unfortunately the jumper is super hard to get your hands on, selling out practically instantly as soon as it’s restocked. It’s no wonder this jumper is such a hit though – it is literally a rainbow of happiness. Whenever I wear this jumper I always get compliments and often a smile. It quite literally spreads happiness. So, seeing as you are what you wear – I’m a rainbow for today and I’m totally fine with that.  ♥

Cosy Winter Outfit Ideas

Cosy Winter Outfit Ideas

Let’s be honest, our main priority in the Winter season is being warm – not necessarily fashionable. Realistically these crop tops are a joke..a bare stomach flaunt during weather warnings of snow and torrential rain? No thanks. I think I made that mistake once and let me tell you, frost bite is real and Jack Frost isn’t a myth. So, grab a cup of hot chocolate, crank the heating up and scroll through outfit ideas that will keep you nice and warm this Winter! Warning: You may just want to hide your credit card. Choose one of the following options to avoid impulsive purchasing; 1. Stuff your purse in the freezer – FREEZE THAT CARD OF MAGIC MONEY!  2. Sit on your credit card – Chances are you’ve already taken your purse out of the freezer, I told you the temptation was real. Now, sit on your cold purse! This…

Hair Crushes of 2015

Hair Crushes of 2015

all photos from Pinterest Hailey Baldwin  (top left)  The fact that Hailey Baldwin is my age and looks so incredibly I-N-S-A-N-E, is a little bit unfair. I have been seriously obsessing over her latest hair look – lapping up those bangs. I think the return of the ‘bangs’ or the fringe in 2015 was super positive and when my hair grows a little longer, I fully intend to try it out myself. The look is risky because you have to take into consideration facial structure and the maintenance of the pesky fringe. However, I am ready to return to my roots and introduce the fringe back to my face in 2016. I owe it to Hailey for encouraging me with her Instagram posts and showing me that the fringe isn’t something you should always keep in the past..wish me luck!   Jessica Woodley  (bottom left)  Some of you might not be…
