Fashion - Embracing what makes me different as a Fashion blogger





Hey lovelies,

I've had this post floating about in my head for a while, what makes my blog unique? in a sea of fashion blogs, what makes me different? When you think fashion blogger, what sort of person do you imagine them to be? before I became a fashion blogger, I thought young (mid twenties), slim frame, relatively tall, lived in a big city eg, London, Manchester, and had plenty of money to spend on fashion and camera equipment.


What makes me different?


Now I realise there are all sorts of fashion bloggers out there, all with different body types, different styles, in locations from cities to rural countryside and that's ok! Who wants to look at a sea of photo's that all look the same when scrolling through Instagram, or reading blogs? I know I don't, I'm sick of influencer xxx on a yacht in the med in her size 6 bikini that cost over a £100, or the same Gucci belt and bag outfits shot in locations I can only dream of!

I wanna see women like me, women who shop in Topshop or who have massive saved lists on Asos. Women who look for quiet places to take outfit pictures cause you feel a tit getting all posy and shit in front of strangers. I prefer bloggers who have there own style, a way of dressing that doesn't make them a clone, whose photographic style is there own, and who is unique.

Cause you feel like a tit getting all posy and shit in front of strangers


That's what I aim to be, ME, with my unique style, and my unique look. Yes I'm pretty short, I'm not a size 6, and I'm certainly not twenty something but you know what that's ok, I'm ME.

That's what makes blogging different from conventional fashion journalism, you get a real person's take on trends and styles, rather than those unrealistic guides in magazines that require you to have a shit tonne of money, and look like a fashion victim in impractical, and outlandish outfits.

So that's what I'm gonna do, I'm just gonna plod on sharing my favourite outfits, shot in not particularly glamorous locations and hope people like them, saying that how amazing is Oxburgh Hall as a backdrop? I think we don't always remember that we have these little gems in our countryside.

Beauty - Revlon colorstay brow pencil in soft black




Revlon colorstay brow pencil in soft black

Hey lovelies,

There are a few things I struggle with, getting trousers that fit, applying eyeliner and not eating a whole pack of chocolate fingers in one go, but I digress, I also have trouble getting brow products, it seems many brands think if you have very dark eyebrows you don't need brow products, well hold your horses we do, yeah I might not need as much help as someone with very fair brows but I still like to give my brows a boost.

Recently I ran out of my usual brow pencil, one that I was reasonably satisfied with, but wasn't available to buy where I live, so I needed something I could pick up in superdrug, and I needed it ASAP. There I discovered a brow pencil that has changed my life, well that's a bit dramatic I guess, but I do love it so.

Revlon colorstay brow pencil in soft black, is a double ended product with a twist up angled gel pencil one end and a brow brush on the other, making it super easy for me to fill in and define my brows and give them a little brush through and tidy up. The pencil is super soft and angled meaning it's perfect for filling in gaps, and for me the colour is spot on, it really is black black, unlike most other brow products I have tried.

For me this gives a natural fuller looking brow, with minimal effort and I am all about that life.

If like me you have dark brows I would highly recommend picking this up next time you are out makeup shopping, and even if you haven't the formula is so nice I'm confident it would be good in any shade.

Beauty- Leighton Denny Time Repair anti- aging hand therapy

Hey lovelies,

Hand cream used to be something I never really thought about, it was something your mum used and made your hands all sticky....Fast forward to be a grown up and hand cream is a product I use on a regular basis and even more so come Autumn and into Winter, the weather gets cooler, our homes are centrally heated and that equals dry skin. 

What interested me about Leighton Denny's Time Repair anti - ageing hand therapy* is it works not only on hands but nails to, so it's a double whammy a cream that treats two problems at the same time, I'm all about that life. The Time repair hand therapy not only makes your hands really soft with no sign of stickiness insight it also helps to treat and repair ridges in your nails.

This cream contains all the good stuff, from Argan oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, it also smells pretty good to, which is probably down to the cocoa and shea butter, and the sweet almond, plum and avocado oil, this cream really packs a punch when it comes to nourishing ingredients, and that shows, my hands feel so soft and they look more hydrated, kinda smoother looking.

As you may be able to tell, I really like this hand cream and highly recommend giving it a whirl, if you are looking for a new hand cream to try. 

The Leighton Denny anti aging hand therapy is available from  Leighton Denny  for £14 for 75ml.
