The Perfect Summer Jewels | AD



Hi everyone! So recently I've been searching for some Summer statement jewellery and I came across Prerto JewelleryPrerto offers a versatile mix of edge sophistication and classical pieces. Throughout the pieces there's an ocean vibe with motifs of shells, blue hues and fresh water pearls.  These are my favourite pieces from the SS16 collection. I love the hints of bright colours contrasted with the gold. My favourite is probably the hand harness because it's so different and versatile. I hope to get my hands on some of these pieces because they're so beautiful and would look amazing on holiday. So, be sure to check out prerto.com to get your hands on some of their gorgeous jewellery!

What I Ate Today | Vegetarian


Hi everyone, so today's a bit of a different blog post but I thought I'd mix things up a bit and show you the kind of things I eat in a day for all of you who want some vegetarian meal ideas or are just super nosy. I've been a veggie just over 2 months now and I'm loving it. There's actually so many choices and it's super easy. I'm not trying to preach here but cutting meat out of my diet has made me feel so much better mentally and physically, and it's helping the world. I'd love to go vegan sometime soon but for now, I'll stick with veggie.

So for breakfast I had a smoothie packed full of fruit and veggie. So, in the smoothie there were 2 bananas, 6 large strawberries, a handful of frozen raspberries, a handful of spinach and a tsp of organic matcha powder. This powder is great for boosting your energy levels and can help boost your metabolism. So I cut up all my fruit and popped it in the blender.


Alongside my smoothie, I like to have some lemon water for refreshment and to detox my body.


For Lunch, myself, my Mam and my sister walked over to a pub because who doesn't love pub food? They actually had quite a lot veggie options which made me super happy. I opted for the Mexican-style pasta boats filled with beans, sweetcorn cheese and other stuff. Surprisingly this was part of the healthy menu despite being super carby and cheesy and it only came in at 475 cals. It also came with a side salad and I pinched some of my Mam's chips.


I got a bit peckish around 3pm so I snacked on some strawberries. Here's me really enjoying a strawberry, apparently.


Unfortunately, I had work that night so that meant tea had to be a packed lunch. I was feeling lazy so I threw together a Quorn sandwich with some salad. I was a bit naughty and put some crisps in too. I also took a big 1L bottle of water to work because I'm always so dehydrated. Of course I had to put it in my fave Fiji water bottle.



After work I was so sleepy and my feet hurt so I just wanted to get into bed. I quickly made myself a cup of peppermint tea and had a low fat muller rice as I was a little bit peckish, and hopped straight into bed.


So that's what I ate today (well yesterday but that doesn't have the same ring to it)! Let me know if you liked this post and if you want me to do more of these or I could post some recipes and cooking posts/videos.

July Favourites


Happy August guys. Nip and a punch for the first of the month! I can't believe it's August already like where has the time gone? I can't wait for August, though as I have lots planned such as Paris in 18 days for 6 days and then Leeds festival - it's going to be a wild one (when I'm not at work, of course). Here's some of the things I've been loving the past month:

1. My winter cardigan
Yes, I know it's the middle of Summer but be realistic, I live in the UK. July called for a lot of early starts at work when it's still a bit chilly and I want to be in bed so this cosy cardigan has been my ultimate saviour for those cold travels to work.


2. Birkenstocks
I saw someone wearing these at college and I instantly fell in love. They're the cutest things ever and I thought they'd be perfect for Paris when I'm walking around all day. I got these beauties on sale for £29.99 at Footasylum.


3. Mac Spice Lip Liner
I've used so many dupes of this lip liner so I thought it was about time to buy the real thing. I love this colour because it just goes with every lip colour. I like to wear it with Mac's 'Velvet Teddy' or 'Brave'.



4. No. 7 Face Exfoliator 
If, like me, you suffer from dull skin then this is your answer. This little miracle in a bottle is a scrub for your face and it brightens it instantly. Use everyday and rinse with water to leave your skin with a healthy glow.


I recently just found this website and instantly I loved the idea of it! Beauty Resource connects individuals with qualified professionals, as well as to provide them with a wealth of information on beauty treatments and information on the latest beauty products. It's so straight-forward, just type in your location and instantly you're matched with qualified beauty professionals (most of which are mobile). I can't wait to try this site out and get my nails done! Head over to http://www.beautyresource.org.uk to get started.
