Lily's picks

Hi everyone, it's Lily here and this is my first post of the blog. As you may know, I am working on the blog alongside Emily so we thought that I should introduce you to my style and thoughts. 

Emily and I have quite different everyday style in terms of colour choices, items we wear and accessories; I tend to go for a slightly more gothic look (by that I mean more black). I also love 90s clothing which bodes well for me as it is hugely popular again. The one thing that I own the most of is black chunky heels (I have an addiction to buying them). My current favourite fashion blogger is: Kayla Hadlington.

Sustainable, Affordable

Hey everyone,

As you may know sustainable fashion is something which both Lily and I care strongly about. The world should not have to suffer for our pleasure, and if we can help then why shouldn't we? Luckily, there are brands out there that share this philosophy, and I am incredibly happy to share a few of them with you.

However, you may know it can be really hard to find ethical clothing that is not only incredibly stylish, but affordable too. I love to support companies that are putting in the effort and care about this, but not everyone can fork out £200 for a new bracelet, so here I have chosen some ethical fashion brands and products that are Eco-friendly and wallet friendly.

Makeover {Giveaway}

Hey guys,

Today I am sharing with you some very exciting news, on Monday (16th of March) the blog will be undergoing a complete make-over. I have been working on the design for a while now and I am so excited to share it with you guys. This does mean that the blog will be down all of Sunday so that I can prepare it, so in advance, I'm sorry for that but it will be worth it. It feels like a whole new chapter for the blog and it is very exciting.

To celebrate this new beginning for the blog I will be giving away 10 gorgeous engraved silver compact mirrors, which I absolutely love. I realized the other day how handy they are and that I didn't own one so I thought I would invest, and share some with you guys in the process. To find out how to get your hands on one, come check out the blog on Monday and all will be revealed.

This will be my last post until then so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the new design and until then here are a few outfit ideas from my Fashiolista (will be a feature on the new blog.)

The Perfect Gym Outfit For You

Good morning everyone, 

Hope you are all doing well. Now, as you may know I have never been one for the gym. I always convinced myself that I hated the gym, it was too much effort, and hence I haven't been to the gym in years, since being forced in school. 

Well, all that has changed. 

You see I have been planning my travelling plans for next year with a couple of friends (I will share the established plans with you nearer the time) and in doing this we found a problem. We are so unfit! In the plans there is quite a lot of trekking and I realized that at our current fitness levels (or unfitness levels) we would not be able to do what we had planed. Therefore, the gym was calling. I will admit before going the first time I dreaded it, but I discovered, there's nothing to dread! It is actually really fun, and I feel so much better after going, even if it is just psychologically. 

So unlike my usual fitness philosophy, my advice is . . do it! Which, I understand is harder said than done. So my real advice today is get some gym gear. I know what your thinking, "How will that help me go to the gym?" but it really does. It gives you that extra boost of confidence and if your like me then you love wearing new clothes, so show them off! In order to give you some motivation I have selected a few outfits from Fabletics wonderful range of clothing, including the outfit which I bought for my gym workouts. It's such great quality, and you can get your full outfit for £22 if your a new customer, so there's really no downside.

Enjoy & Happy gyming!
