OOTD (From earlier in December)

Hello lovelies!

I am back and as per usual, life has run away with me again! Since I was last able to post, I lost one of my part time jobs due to the company moving to America and was left having to find something else. This, all before Christmas and while still unpacking bits from moving. Whilst looking for work, I checked the Lush website in hopes of there being a shop opening up in Canterbury (the closest bigger city to where I live) and my jaw dropped to the floor, there was! After a series of interviews, I got the job and went through the most fun and interesting training week ever, full of Christmas, skin and hair care training complete with loads of products to test out. Stay tuned on here as I have lots of things to tell you about what I have learned and if you are curious about Lush or what you could use from them feel free to message me with questions! 

I had to go down to London to meet the team for the Lush shop, which hadn’t opened, so almost the entire staff were new and all getting to know each other. I wanted to wear something friendly but that would also show off my fancy purple hair which I am still in love with.  I chose this little get up, digging out a couple of old favourites to pull it all together.




I am wearing: 

Star tshirt – Torrid (several years old)

Mauve Cardi – Primark (currently available for £6!)

Black slim leg jeans rolled up – Marks and Spencers

Mustache Flats – Primark (Liverpool)

Now that I will be working regularly and getting back on track, I hope to share more OOTD with you and do a couple of Lush reviews too!

Stay tuned for a Christmas special with Simply Be!!




OOTD: Spring has Sprung!


Today being one of the first days of Spring, I thought it only right to wear an outfit that encourages the warm weather to come and stay. I got this adorable tea dress from New Look Inspire on the weekend and I am delighted with it! You can find it here! Spring is all about romantic floral prints and bright pastel colours and this dress pretty much sums it up.


Dress – New Look Inspire

Cardigan – UNIQLO

Tights – Spanx

Brogues – Primark (12 pounds!! what a steal!!)

Hoop earrings – Primark

Button ring – I made it!

Happy Spring everyone!

OOTD: Mad for plaid and I’m moving!


Thanks to everyone who participated in any way yesterday for the day of silence by bloggers for Japan!!! I am back today with an outfit that makes everyone at my work comment on how Canadian I am. I’ll admit I wear a lot of plaid but I just can’t help myself – maybe it’s in my blood. 😉  I spend my day running around at work and so to accommodate this I often wear my little converse knockoffs, so despite them not being the most fashion forward, they get the job done and they are comfy. I was also carrying one of my favourite canvas bags from Primark, mostly as an excuse to announce to all of you that I am moving to London at the beginning of June! I have officially become a Brit – passport and all and I am heading to London to see what exciting things are happening there! I am super excited, although I’ll miss my friends in Paris – but we really are just across the pond so I’ll be back for visits. Also, if you know anyone with a room to let in London for June please let me know, I am actively searching!

This tunic was once a dress but alas silly me didn’t see it wrapped up in my sheets in the wash which then went right into the dryer and made my dress a little too short on the back end to wear sans skirt. Regardless I still love it because it is airy and light and plaid!

Dress/tunic – Torrid (Summer 2010 collection)

Skirt – H&M

Tights – Spanx

Shoes – no brand (converse knockoffs)

Bag – Primark

Earrings – Claire’s (from years ago)

Thanks for stopping by!!

OOTD: That’s Miss Charlie Chaplin to you…

Hiya! So thanks to the amazing Gaelle from Les Pitreries de Vanoue I have a few super fun shots of my girly Charlie Chaplin look for you.

The outfit is a mix of old, new and borrowed and it’s one of my favourites to wear.


Polka dot cardigan- Gap (old collection)

Tank top – Old navy

Jeans – Second Yoga (these are amazing!)

Boots- Evans (on sale during PlusLondon!)

Hat – Le Chateau (Canada – old collection)

Purse – Primark

Umbrella – borrowed from Gaelle and originally from Primark

I am rather enjoying this bizarre bit of Spring weather we have been having and now that I have a pair of jeans that actually fit properly and are versatile, I have been wearing them a lot more. It’s a shame I can’t wear this hat all day – it cures a bad hair day instantly!

Take care my lovelies!
