TV Shows I’ve Been Watching Recently – Take Six

I thought it was about time that I updated you all in terms of what TV shows I’ve been watching recently as believe it or not, these blog posts are fairly popular.

With Love Island taking up 100% of my nightly TV watching, I’ve been dipping in and out of Netflix and the Amazon Fire Stick as and when I can recently.

The Most Beautiful Skirt

Hands down, my favourite skirt I have ever purchased.

Last month, I placed two cheeky not-so-accidental online orders – one dress which was returned, two t-shirts in which you’re about to see one and one very beautiful midi-skirt.

Dorothy Perkins makes clothes which allow me to feel good about my body, no matter what my size is and I’ve felt like that being at both my smallest and largest. They’re a brand who I’ve loved for many years and right now, they are hitting the nail on the head with the clothing in which they’re producing.

Especially this skirt.

Blurb:

For Lizzie Riley, switching her eight-year-old son Tom to the local academy school marks a fresh start, post-divorce. With its excellent reputation and outstanding results, Lizzie knows it’ll be a safe space away from home. But there’s something strange happening at school. Parents are forbidden from entering the grounds and inside, there are bars across the classroom windows. Why is Tom coming home exhausted, unable to remember anything about his day? What are the strange marks on his arm? And when Lizzie tries to question the other children, why do they seem afraid to talk? Tom’s new school might seem picture-perfect. But sometimes appearances can be deceiving…

Creating Sleek Hair Without The Hair Spray

I was born with curly hair.

I didn’t have straighteners until my 16th birthday and quite frankly, having wavy hair was not the one during puberty. Since then, I’ve spent the past twelve years straightening my hair and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The trouble I now have is static and the amount in my hair is an absolute joke.

But now, I’ve discovered the solution – it’s not hair spray!

Obsessing Over Wrap Dresses

It would seem that I’ve developed an accidental obsession with wrap dresses.

It began with the cute little black and white polka dot dress, then came the blue spotty dress and now, we have a green version.

I just can’t help myself.

Wrap dresses are flippin’ fantastic.

Aimee Sinclair: the actress everyone thinks they know but can’t remember where from. But I know exactly who you are. I know what you’ve done. And I am watching you. When Aimee comes home and discovers her husband is missing, she doesn’t seem to know what to do or how to act. The police think she’s hiding something and they’re right, she is – but perhaps not what they thought. Aimee has a secret she’s never shared, and yet, she suspects that someone knows. As she struggles to keep her career and sanity intact, her past comes back to haunt her in ways more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.

Exploring Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

For our three year anniversary, we spent a week travelling the coast of Southern England. We began with our first pit stop in Oxford before carrying on to Bournemouth where we spent a few hours exploring Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Sitting next to each other, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are two breath taking places to visit when you’re in the area. Oh and a top tip: if you use the car park for one, you can use the same ticket to park at the other!

A Little Black Top For Any Occasion

Cameo Rose are a brand who I recently discovered in New Look. I purchased their black spot wrap dress back in May and ever since, it is my perfect go-to dress for any occasion.

Since then, I have been the hunt for cute little tops that can be easily paired with jeans, shorts and skirts for any occasion and I’m pretty certain that I’ve found the perfect black one. Naturally, it is from Cameo Rose.

Disclaimer: Cameo Rose kindly gifted this little black top in exchange for a review.

Blurb:

Zoe is a single mother, sinking beneath the waves trying to cope by herself in London. Hari, her gorgeous little boy is perfect in every way – except for the fact that he just doesn’t speak, at all. When her landlord raises the rent on her flat, Zoe doesn’t know where to turn. Then Hari’s aunt suggests Zoe could move to Scotland to help run a bookshop. Going from the lonely city to a small village in the Highlands could be the change Zoe and Hari desperately need. Faced with an unwelcoming boss, a moody, distant bookseller named Ramsay Urquart and a band of unruly children, Zoe wonders if she’s made the right decision. But Hari has found his very first real friend and no one could resist the beauty of the loch glinting in the summer sun. If only Ramsay would just be a little more approachable…

Why Simple Jewellery Will Always Be My Style

Ever since I can remember, I’ve worn simple silver earrings (probably from H. Samuels) and my New Zealand necklace every single day since I was around the age of thirteen.

My fashion style is simple; I tend not to follow the latest styles and over the past year or so, I’ve learnt how to dress for my body shape but majority of the time, I wear things because I feel comfortable.

The exact same applies to jewellery – simple yet effective.
