The Liebster Award

Thank you so much to Nina Francesca for nominating for The Liebster Award! It's so nice that the blogging community get along and support eachother they way we do.

What is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster Awards origins are pretty much a mystery. Bloggers nominate other bloggers that have 200 or less followers. "Liebster" is German for "favourite", so this is kind of like the "favourite blog award". It's basically a "Hey, I really like your blog . Here's an award!" You can't just accept the award. You have to play by the rules and pay it forward. Then you can put the award on your blog for all to see.

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Ask 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.

My Questions from Nina

This is such a difficult question. I will have to say Karl Lagerfeld as I love the androgynous look and would kill for a Chanel bag

2. What is your favourite item of clothing in your wardrobe?
Does a handbag count? My Mulberry Alexa is my most prized possession and 100% my favourite thing I own. If it doesn't count it would have to be my Zara coat.

3. Who inspires you?
People who work hard to get where they are. I am currently interning and working my butt off to try and get where I want to be in the future so I admire people from an average background like mine and have worked hard for their success. 

4. What is your main goal in life?
Cheesy but... to be happy and content

New York. My whole family have an obsession with the city. I have been there 4 times and fall in love with it a little more each visit.

6. What is your favourite film?
Not sure if this is a conventional answer but I LOVE the film School of Rock. Jack Black has me in stitches no matter how many times I watch it and I know every word.

7. Summer or winter?
Winter. But dry and crisp, not wet and soggy.

8. What is your favourite snack?
All crisps

9. What would you change about yourself if you could?
That I could have more patience

Aztec on the Beach

I have recently returned from an amazing holiday with my family in Mexico. We have visited Cancun once before but this year we wanted to visit somewhere a little less commercialised and visted Playacar in Rivera Maya. 

Dress - Topshop
Glasses - Rayban Wayfarers

To jazz up my typical holiday day wear of levi shorts and white vest tops I wore my favourite midi dress. I usually I avoid body con styles as I have a curvy figure and feel like tight dresses show every lump and bump, however the thicker material and busy print disguises everything and is super comfy, perfect for a day at the beach.
Ill share more pictures of my holiday in another post for you guys to see.
Now I am back in the UK I have been wearing this dress with chunky boots and a leather jacket, I love that it can be worn all though the seasons.

Are there any other ways you would style this dress? Perhaps for an evening look?

With Skin as White as Snow

Hat - Asos, Coat - Zara,  Jumper - Primark, Shirt - H&M, Leggings - New Look, Boots - Primark

Hey guys I'm back!! I had a little break from blogging as I was working so much over christmas and have just returned from a holiday in Mexico.

Yes I literally only landed 3 days ago from 2 weeks in the sun and I am already this pale.
I am definitely feeling the cold more after getting used to the tropical climate of Riviera Maya so wrapped up warm for a walk in the snow.
I am in love this hat, I actually got it as a gift last christmas but feel like it needs to be really cold for me to get away with wearing it. It does give you bad hat hair after wearing but it keeps your ears nice and toasty.
I seem to be wearing my Zara coat everyday. Its so cosy and goes with everything, I think the leather detailing gives it a cool rock edge and makes any outfit look more chic and pulled together. Two of my favourite bloggers Lily from What I Heart Today and Lexi from FashionFilth also own this coat so I like to see how they wear it for Fash-piration
Seen as I always wear such dark colours I have been buying a few bright coloured jumpers to brighten up my outfits a little and this burgundy knit was a steal from Primark.

Now that my lipstick drawer is now full to the brim one of my new years resolutions is so wear lipstick more often. I own so many but don't want to wear them as I don't want them to run out, but what's the point in owning them and not wearing them? Does anyone else have this problem? Anyhoo, here I am wearing MAC Russian Red.

If you know of anywhere else selling some bargain bright jumpers let me know, I am still on the hunt for more. Have you been for a stroll in the snow or even better built a snowman?
