Six Cocktail Recipes For The Sunny Bank Holiday Weekend

Happy Long Weekend - the sun is shiiiining! 
It's currently Friday afternoon, I've spent all day in a bikini, I've written blog posts in the sunshine and it feels like the perfect start to Summer. 

Seeing as we all need something to cool off with in this heat I've rounded up some Pinterest Cocktail recipes I'm dying to try! Just a mini post, but all the recipes are linked below so you can make them to and find out what you need to do so. Let me know which are your favourites!

Five Style Staples I'm Loving Right Now

I love a good wardrobe switch up when the seasons are changing. New styles and trends are coming in thick and fast and I love discovering how to work them into my own style.

Alongside some snaps taken on Brighton pier at the weekend, I've put together five trends that I am loving right now and cant wait to experiment with more in my own Spring/Summer wardrobe. 
Gingham Top

1. Get the Gingham

I'm seeing gingham absolutely everywhere at the moment, so I knew I wanted to get some gingham items in my wardrobe asap. I picked up this top for only £6 in Primark and I love it.

2. Bring on the Bardot

I know bardot tops had their moment last year, but I'm still seeing them everywhere and I still want a wardrobe full of them. I really like my collarbones (is that weird?) so I find the off the shoulder look quite flattering. They are in no way practical because I can't raise my arms higher than my boobs, which means getting my groove on is out of the question, but it's a sacrifice I'm (occasionally) willing to make.

3. 90's vibes in Oversized Denim

I've been on the search for an Oversized denim jacket for a while now and finally found one I love. It is big and baggy, but is fitted on the shoulders, it's also longline, which flatters my shape more than really big, wide baggy ones. I'm wearing it constantly at the moment and I don't see that changing any time soon. 

4. When life gives you Lemons

Lemon print has suddenly burst onto the scene (Dolce & Gabbana, I'm looking at you...) and personally, it is a print I adore and can't get enough of. So bright, so summery! There's D&G copies everywhere, so I'm keeping my eye out for one I love enough, but for now this scarf I picked up on a whim two years ago is filling the void!

5. Earrings, All the statement earrings.

Now the gold hoops I'm wearing may not be statement, as such, but they've set me off on a dangerous path (that ends in looking a lot like Pat Butcher...) I want tassels, bright colours and huge beads - I'm on a serious hunt. I've got my eye on a bright red, beaded, tassel-y pair in H&M already.

Wednesday 10 May 2017


With my holiday being just a month away I thought I'd pop into Primark to pick up some Spring/Summer pieces! I'll definitely be popping back very soon to get some even more summery pieces - I need new swimwear and maybe some beachwear too.

Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss any of my Spring/Summer content that's coming up in the next few months. 

Whats your favourite item in my haul?

10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week {08.05.17}

After a little bit of blog neglect (saaaaad times) I thought I'd try and get things back on track again. Kicking of with one of my favourite posts to write, 10 things that made me happy this week. It's a chance to look back on the little moments that have made me smile recently, I find it really helps my headspace when I'm stressed - a small reminder that it's definitely not all that bad. This post was also one of my Aunties favourites, she used to tell me that when I ended the post with 'what made you happy this week?' it really made her think about the things that made her smile and she loved that. She'll forever be the brightest star in the sky, shining even brighter yesterday with it being her birthday - so this post is for her. 
May Diary
1. A handful of moments from care home performances last week. Singing 'Please Mr Postman' to a gentleman who used to be a postman - He was beaming! A grandson watching his grandma dance and sing non-stop for 45minutes, she was loving it, he even got up to join her. A 90 year old man asking me to marry him. Too cute. (I said Yes. Obvs.)
2. Cocktails and cry-laughing with Emma on Saturday night. 
3. Dancing to Magic FM in the kitchen with mum on Saturday afternoon. She was baking, I was getting ready to go out and they were playing #1's from the 90's. 
4. A recent trip to Dorset with my dad and little brother to visit family. Collecting sea glass on Charmouth Beach, eating ice creams and visiting the crystal shop brought back all the memories of happy seaside holidays. 
5. I received my first payment from YouTube. It's not huge, it won't be buying me a house, car or holiday and to most people won't seem like much, but to me it's kind of a big deal. I don't blog or make videos for money (if I did I'd of quit a looooong time ago) so this is purely a bonus, to earn a bit of money doing something I absolutely love. When you pour your heart and soul into something, it's very rewarding.
6. Doing 'adulting' so well last Tuesday morning. Insurance quotes sorted, student finance forms, postal vote applications, prescriptions picked up. Thing I'd been putting off for a long time so I felt so happy to get them all done! 
7. Holiday shopping with Charlie. One month to goooo! 
8. Bluebells. I love seeing the blur of purple as I drive through the countryside.
9. Despacito - a new song J Biebs features on. It's bloody amazing and gives me all the holiday salsa vibes.
10. Blake Lively's look for the Met Ball. Or just Blake Lively's look in general. Or Just Blake Lively. 

What's made you happy recently? :)

*There WILL be a post coming on Friday, no more slacking from me!
