Annabelle Round Tortoise Sunglasses | GlassesShop

Hey Sweeties,

I acknowledge that for those of us here in the UK summer left us a couple of weeks ago, so talking to you today about my new pair of sunglasses is probably not the best timing. But! A new pair of sunnies is a great fashion accessory all year round. As we start replacing t-shirts with jumpers, and sandals for ankle boots, the one consistent across the seasons can be sunglasses because even though it may longer be hot outside, it will still be sunny (sometimes).

American Eagle Outfitters Fashion Haul – USA & UK

Hey Sweeties,

I blimmin’ LOVE American Eagle Outfitters. I really do. Ever since I first went to New York City way back in 2007 and stepped into a store, I have loved the brand. Fortunately since visiting the States, American Eagle Outfitters have opened in the UK (I think just in Westfield?!) so I can now shop both here and across the Atlantic -win!

In today’s haul post, I thought I would combine the pieces I purchased from Westfield (London) earlier in the year, and the pieces I picked up on my honeymoon back in May (yes, still to tell you about it, I know, it’s coming -promise!).

American Eagle Outfitters Haul

There are three key things I love about American Eagle Outfitters

1. Affordability, particularly in a sale;

2. Quality;

3. Laid-back casual vibe of their clothing and accessories; they are great for layering, or wearing as stand alone pieces. In previous hauls, I have always stocked up on their hoodies and t-shirts, and thrown in the odd bit of jewellery here and there.

Small note – I didn’t really think it through properly when I photographed the haul as the pieces are mixed rather than divided by USA and UK. Opps, sorry. Bear with.

Ottica – The Online Retailer for Prescription Eyewear & Stylish Frames

Hey Sweeties,

Did you know that three-quarters of the population wear glasses? A pair of glasses has become the latest must-have accessory, regardless if used to improve vision or not. Personally, I’m not really into the whole wearing-glasses-if-you-don’t-actually-need-them-look, (but it’s totally okay if you are –I’m less than a month away from thirty and you know, I don’t think I’m really cool enough to pull it off). However, sunglasses on the other hand are my total go-to at this time of year!

I know how some people have several pairs, sometimes drawers full, of sunglasses. For me, (until today) I just have two pairs –a pair that lives in my car, and a pair that live in the house/my bag that I ultimately lose regularly. I am always trying new sunglasses on when I am out shopping, but I rarely commit to purchasing a new pair of frames for myself. In addition, it can be a struggle to find a pair of frames that suit your face shape, even if you love them on the display stand.

Who are Ottica?

Ottica is an online retailer for prescription eyewear, creating a “house of brands” for prescription glasses, designed to give their customers access to the top designers worldwide. They sell a variety of quality frames –both eyeglasses and sunglasses- in a variety of styles, shapes and colours, from the most trusted brands at online prices.

I was invited by Ottica* to look at the website and their vast collection of eyewear, as I am not a glasses wearer, my focus was on sunglasses.

Royal Ascot 2017 – The Hottest Day of the Year & What I Wore

Hey Sweeties,

Let me begin with a story –

Six years ago in June 2011, I had recently joined a well known betting company on their promotions team and was given the opportunity to have a week away (I was living in Bristol at the time) to work Royal Ascot. I wouldn’t say I jumped at the chance because I am not someone that particularly enjoys staying away, but I decided to go for it any way. Royal Ascot that year was almost a complete wash out and if it wasn’t pouring with rain, or windy, it was pouring with rain and being windy at the same time; it wasn’t a whole lot of fun I have got to be honest. Anyway.

Cutting a long story short, it was during this week I met the man that five years later I married, and you’ll only know the full story if you were at my wedding and listened to my speech. All that being said, although my husband and I are regular race goers and have been to Ascot racecourse since meeting, we have never made it back to Royal Ascot and this year we finally did. So on Tuesday 20th June 2017, we put on our glad rags and headed back to the place where it all began for the both of us.

Spring Haul feat. Miss Guided; Boo Hoo; Very; Miss Pap; American Eagle & Miss Selfridge

Hey Sweeties,

I feel like I haven’t done a haul post in FOREVER… that’s not to say I haven’t been haulin’ though, it means I just haven’t had the time/weather/patience/opportunity etc. to shoot everything. Normally, when I’ve fashion hauled I either photograph it on which involves standing in the garden with my camera on a tripod and the self-timer; or occasionally I have made use of the washing line (for example here). Today, I have tried something new… the fashion flat lay!

My spring haul has been building since January when I picked up a couple of bits in the sales, and then gradually over the past couple of months I have been adding to it. At the end of April I am off on honeymoon to America (so freakin’ excited!) for a couple of weeks, so I am also beginning to look at my current wardrobe and identify any gaps for warmer weather attire that I might need for my trip. So without further ado, here are some of my recent purchases –
