Nikes, Checks and Leather.

Leggings - Leggingston
Top, Rucksack & Coat - F&F
Jumper & Scarf - boohoo
Nikes - Millet Sports

I never thought I'd love wearing trainers with outfits as much as I do, but these days I just can't get enough! My trainer collection has actually got a little bit out of hand and I just can't seem to resist trying different brands, colours, styles.....the list goes on. That might be about to change though, because I'm pretty sure that this is the perfect pair! They're the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit in case you're wondering, and they are hands down the comfiest shoes I own! 

They also happen to be perfect for adding a sport luxe vibe to any outfit, and I love how they look with this monochrome getup! These leather look leggings are fast becoming a wardrobe staple and as for the rest, would you believe it's from Tesco? I won a blogger comp of theirs a while back and got some vouchers to spend on their site and I was pleasantly surprised to find just how many gorgeous clothes they have in their collection! This coat is definitely a fave, and I love this cute rucksack too. Actually, the only problem with this outfit is that it's s comfy I want to wear it to work every day!

LFW Day Two.

Joggers, Jumper, Coat, Fur Scarf, Fur Bag, Shoes - all boohoo
Hat - ASOS
Fur Keyring - River Island

Here is my look from Saturday at LFW. I meant to post this last night, but I was so tired out after a weekend of fashion week madness that I didn't manage it! When I first went out in this outfit, I felt a bit silly being so wrapped up, but when I got to Somerset House it was so chilly that I was actually pretty glad about all my layers! I'm loving the slouchy, over-sized casual vibe at the moment and this sport-luxe style getup was super comfy and fun for a day at fashion week! All the street style around London this weekend got me craving so much fur that I couldn't resist adding this crazy boohoo fur number to my outfit as well, it might be a bit OTT but hey, it is fashion week after all!

LFW Day One

Jumper, Coat, Hat, Boots & Bag - boohoo

So the first day of London Fashion Week is drawing to a close and after a whirlwind couple of days (hosting the boohoo gifting lounge on Thursday and shooting with the gorgeous Sonya Esman today),  Alex and I are chilling in our hotel room at the Hub by Premier Inn, eating our body weight in bon bons and giving our feet some much needed rest!

I managed to find the time to snap some cheeky pics of my outfit between running from Somerset House to the office to the PPQ show tonight, and I'm glad I did because I really love this look! I decided to stay as comfy and warm as possible so I wore this giant knit and oversized coat for a throw-on layered vibe. Not gonna lie, my legs did get a bit chilly by the end of the day, but this was the perfect combo of stylish and functional. Now I've just got to plan my outfit for tomorrow!

ghd Aura hairdryer review.

 I was lucky enough to be sent the amazing new Aura hairdryer from ghd recently so I thought I'd do a bit of a review post for you all to let you know what I thought of it! Everyone knows ghd for their classic straighteners that pretty much changed the hairstyles of a whole generation and definitely banished my teenage frizz back in the day, but I think it's easy to overlook other products when it comes to hair styling. It was only when I reviewed the previous model, the ghd Air, on my blog a while back that I realised what a difference a good hairdryer can make! I'm pretty sure I remember writing (or at least saying to everyone I know) that it was like using the Porsche of hairdryers compared to my old one (which probably would have been more along the lines of a fiat punto). Well if the ghd Air is the Porsche of hairdryers, the Aura is more like the Ferarri! 

It's an upgrade on the older model, with a similar look and power but with a few distinct differences. The Aura is much quiet, with an external power supply built into the cable which means it's much lighter too - no more arm cramps while you're drying long hair! Like the Air model, it is super quick for drying even my long hair and has three heat settings to help reduce any heat damage - I find that the medium setting is perfect for day-to-day use! It also has a cool blast button to help set your style after blow drying. It promises a volumising blow dry with a shiny, frizz-free finish and it definitely doesn't disappoint. It has a built in ioniser which banishes frizz, but the part that I found makes the most difference is the concentrated nozzle which directs the air and makes for a volumised blow dry which is super easy to style. All in all, I'm sold! One again ghd have proved to me that a great hairdryer can make all the difference when it comes to taking care of your hair and styling a great look. If you thought ghd was only good for straighteners, it's definitely time to think again!
