Street Style New York

So I've been in New York and the style in there had so much character yet diversity and I wanted to capture current trends in the area of hipster town Williamsburg and Bushwick. Lets say its the Shoreditch of London! As it's a super gloomy day right now back in London I'm hoping that this post will brighten up the day. Its a reminder of the beautiful weather and people I encountered. Hope you enjoy!

Favourites from Superdrug stores!

Hi y'all! I'm starting to get into the healthy side of me these last few weeks and these are a few products that have been doing the trick to my progress on the road to a better me. Ok yes I know. There are healthier ways, but losing 10 pounds in 4 weeks is my goal along side better looking skin is what I want to achieve. I wanted to try these products that were sent out to me, to help me achieve it. As I said in previous posts I want to try out newer products and let you all know about it if they are worth telling! 

The Superdrug Collagen and Copper Food Supplement has a number of 30 tablets and are meant to be taken once a day with a meal which I did, missing out a couple of days here and there. It is supposed to maintain smooth, firm and beautiful looking skin as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As I'm only 21 and have close to zero amount of wrinkles, I was sceptical about how much of a difference I would notice. Surprisingly I did see a difference towards the last stages of taking the tablet, but it could be due to it working with an improvement of my diet changes. My skin looked clearer and a more even colour throughout my body. Though the changes were slight, it was a hassle to take the tablets daily. I would recommend try it out if you want that clear glow holiday look, but be prepared for your skin to bounce back after you have stopped taken the tablets. 

The lighter life meal replacement bars are a life saver and by far the most surprising product. I was surprised by how much I noticed the change in my metabolism. Example day; I woke up about 9.30am and ate a slice of toast and a banana. An half hour later I took one of these replacement bars. I then went to work. Low and behold my energy levels were normal I didn't feel hungry till about 6pm. I thought this was pretty impressive seeming I love to eat and can eat for England! I liked how I can control my eating habits with this bar in the future. The only bad thing would be, some of the bar flavours tasted a bit rubbery, but not all of them. They were still edible. haha. Overall a good product from Superdrug stores because it did the job.  

My last favourite is a weird one for me because I have tried to back away from weight control tablets for a while. So I'm writing this from a very closed book approach. This product is a meal supplement and should not be replaced by a well balanced diet and so it was totally opposite to the meal replacement bars. Again it did the job. Although I was eating my normal meals, I was eating in moderation and slightly less than I would normally do. Surprisingly I got no side effects though I thought I would. Again I started to notice the changes towards the end of the tub. Another con would be the fact I would have to take the tablets 3 times a day which became a hindrance within my daily duties. 

Let me know guys of what you think of Superdrung brands? Have you tried any and what do u think of my review?

Stripes and all

Stripes and all  sharon-dixon Follow me on Polyvore! This board is featuring an areca palm

These are my current wishlist and yes, of course - its minimal. I'm going to wear black for as long as I can before the heat waves hit London but, for now It's classy black and comfy casual looks that keep me going this spring. I'm forever in a relationship with my wide rim hat fedoras and it always brings a bit of glam to a dull outfit. Striped tops is another must have piece you must have in your wardrobe and this long sleeve one would be great on day to day errands and can also be dressed up too. Simple, simple, simple accessories is the way forward or none at all is the for the minimal look.

Out and about - Press days - April '15

Some of the brands I like : Toyshades - Nailberry - Bomb Cosmetics - Moyou - Maple and Fits 

Hey I know, it's been a while.. *awkward face*, but I wanted to share a few photos from the last week of press day runs. I have really been drawn to many newer brands and i'm liking some of the fresh products that have caught my eye and of course the brands that work really well and seem to be good value for price. So I want to reintroduce this new series again - it's called 'out and about'. It won't just be press days and new products, but a celebration laid-back spontaneous photography while i'm out and about in London. The products that I have captured today are some of my favs and maybe you should look out for these brands in the future!

My March Loves...

I've never really been a Zara spender but have always admired Zara items on other people. I was drawn by the perfumes straight away, not because of the smell but because of the frick'n amazing price. I feel like the scent of there perfumes are really rich and definitely worth buying at least one of them. For £5.99 its my favorite affordable perfume - value for money and the quality of scent.  

Have u heard of Lottie beauty brand? Me neither, but most of you all will be hearing it all over soon! It is a cute, girly cosmetics brand soon to hit Superdrugs this month. Lottie already as a few bloggers taking. They stock in make up brushes, nail polish, travel mirrors, eye lash curlers and other cosmetics based products. The pastel colored products really do look pretty together and I'm looking forward to what this brand is gonna do in the future.

If you had no fear, what would you do? AnnaSeven, Topshop, Primark

'Thou Shalt Not Fear'  Top - Anna Seven       Black Jeans - Debenhams        Shoes/ loafers - Primark           Kimono - Topshop (now on sale)  

Hey guys, I wanted to start off my first post of the year with a positive. The question highlighted in the title has me thinking about the opportunities we turn down or don't even attempt because of fearing of failure, rejection or even commitment. I hold up my hands up and admit that fear of failure was my biggest setback in 2014 and has been a major struggle for me to deal with, but this year 2015 I ask myself  'If you had no fear, what would you do?' Then it got me thinking Fear is all in the mind and it is something that only you create artificially. Is fear even real? I feel that improving your way of thinking can be the breakthrough.  So my new goal - I want this year to be a year of positive thinking and pushing out/away fear. I'm inspired by Anna Seven which is a brand who support the A21 campaign against human trafficking. They have cool shirts that not only look great with current trends, but they also support something amazing that spreads the positivity, as well as creating a movement. Be part of the #FearlessGeneration.
