London Fashion Week Looks: Day One

I'm back from the whirlwind that was London Fashion Week. I'm absolutely shattered and feel like I could sleep for a gazillion years. It was a pretty amazing week and I got to see some incredible shows which I will be sharing with you. 
Today's post is all about Day Ones's look. I've never really fully done the pastel trend like head to toe but I just love the colours. I managed to grab the lilac cropped trousers in the sale for only £10 on ASOS and the white Mary Jane shoes were also £12 from ASOS (Although very uncomfortable). 
The amazing pink leather jacket is from Fashion Union, I was kindly lent it for LFW and fell straight in love with it. It's quite thick so great for Autumn and just such a beautiful shade of pink.

 I defiantly think this was one of my favourite outfits I've worn in a very long time. I can't wait to wear those trousers again!

My Week In Photo's - Alex Visiting

This post really is sort of going back to the days where I would do "A Week In Photo's" - I loved doing that an documenting what I got up to. I don't know why I stopped doing them but I've decided to create a little post of what Me and Alex got up to when he came up north.
I always seem to do quite touristy things when he comes to see me, It's nice but I feel like I should do it more often. The first day we didn't do too much, we went on a long walk along the beach and up a very steep hill which was practically vertical (Alex was not happy). Once home we treated ourselves to Pizza!
On the second day we went out for an amazing lunch with my family to a place called Eat Me. It's one of the most popular places in town, I ended up getting the fish finger sandwich. Afterwards we headed to the castle (If you've read some of my older posts you'll know the story). I shot some photo's for my blog which can be seen here, It was a lovely couple of hours until I fell pretty badly on the way home.

On the Wednesday we was supposed to be going to Whitby but I felt a bit down so we decided to go the next day. We spent the morning having breakfast at our favourite cafe then went off to a local park. We chose to do a spot of Mini Golf, although it was quite a big course. I now consider myself a pro as I won! 
We finally got round to going to Whitby and we tootled off on the bus which was an experience to say the least. Once we arrived we spent about an hour searching for somewhere to eat (that wasn't fish and chips) - Obviously we ended up in Wetherspoons. The rest of the day was spent looking round the little shops and spending money in the arcades. Even managed to get in MORE golf - I couldn't help myself It was Pirates of The Carribean themed!
Friday was Alex's last day with me and I thought I would tire him out by taking him on another huge walk. We walked around the castle headland and it was so lovely to just be right by the sea. We managed to even take selfies with a giant monument, how little do we look?!

A Day in Whitby

Over the past couple of weeks, I've took a few trips to Whitby. It's not too far from where I live but I find it such a lovely place to visit. If you've never been before it's worth a visit. Filled with amazing fish and chips shops, cute unique pubs and cobbled streets filled with little independent shops. Whitby was the setting of the Dracula tale so there's a horror vibe to the place with ghost trails and vampire themed shops.
It's got all the lovely aspects of the seaside, great food, a lovely beach with pastel coloured beach huts and a very long pier. We even went to the Quayside Restaurant which was voted the best Fish and Chips in the National Fish and Chips Awards. It was pretty amazing and as I'm from the seaside you can't beat a good bit of fish. You truly appreciate it when you move to the city!

Babyliss Hot Brush and Tigi Goodies

The lovely people from Fragrance Direct sent me a lovely hamper full of hair goodies including the Babyliss Hot Brush and some Tigi Goodies. I'll be honest to say I've never owned a hot brush and I didn't really know what to do with one.

After watching a couple of Youtube tutorials I decided to go for 
some loose waves and channelling Kate Middleton. The Brush heated up (and cooled down) very quickly and I soon began to twist it through my hair. The results were really nice, the curls are a lot looser and sleeker than using a regular curling iron but It did take a little bit longer as I wasn't used to using it. 

Next time using this, I really want to work on adding a lot of volume to the top of my hair and I think this appliance would be really great at doing this. Especially using the TIGI plumping spray I was also given. 
After my hair was done I used the TIGI Catwalk Sleek Mystique Lock Lock Hairspray to keep my curls in. My waves was still there the following day and the spray held it together well. 
I also tried out the Tigi Body Booster Plumping Spray, it worked quite well and boosted my roots. My only issue was the smell, I wasn't very keen on it at all. It's got a very sickly sweet scent to it. 
I'd really like to thank Fragrance Direct for my hair hamper!
