My must have Summer accessories




I am all about the accessory, they make it so easy and often inexpensive to jazz up any outfit, especially if your basic uniform is jeans and a t-shirt the right accessories can take you look from boring to popping in a blink of an eye, for a lazy dresser like me this is a win win.

A new but favourite addition to my accessory wardrobe, is a hair scarf. These babies are a lifesaver, and can be worn in several ways to hide a plethora of bad hair days, from roots, to needing a trim to just needing to wash your hair! use it as a hair band and tie it at the back, wrap around a ponytail or bun, whatever you do it will make your hair look like you bothered to style it rather than you got out of bed half hour ago. I picked mine up in Primark for £2.50 and it was money well spent.

I've mentioned my bag of the Summer before but a woven or basket bag is a must have for your Summer outfits. They just scream Summer to me and look fabulous with any summer outfit for during the day or an evening out. Go for a traditional basket, a circular cross body or box bag shape, whichever you choose you will be bang on trend, and totally "fashion" darling!

Gold jewellery is everywhere right now and looks great in summer, whether its layered necklaces or gold hoops. I'm a massive fan of 90's style big hoops and you do not have to spend a fortune, all the highstreet stores have them, you only need to spend a couple of quid to look bling!!!

The one thing in Summer I simply cannot live without are sunglasses, I whip a pair of sunnies out at the first sight of sun, I have a tonne of pairs, but when you can pick them up for under £5 on the highstreet why not, in fact many of my favourite pairs cost £1 or £2 in Primark. So if you pick up a style you are not sure about or a pair just for a photo for the gram does it matter?

When it comes to footwear, we only get a few months a year when we can get out feet out. So get those feet buffed and your toes painted and prepare to rock some sandals for Summer. What you go for is up to you and your style, but whether you go for simple black or tan or something a bit brighter or even a bit of leopard print, sandals are the perfect summer shoe.

L'oreal Paris pure clay bright face mask



Hands up if you love a face mask, I think I can speak for most of us, when I say no skincare routine is the same without a face mask thrown in at least on a weekly basis.

For the longest time I have loved a clay mask, I think they just work for me,  I have tried a few from the L'oreal pure clay range, but when a few weeks back I saw this new yellow one, I was like Oooo a yellow clay mask, I must try that immediately, because I love trying out something new or a bit different.

L'Oreal-Paris-Pure-Clay-Bright-Face-Mask  as you may of guessed from the name is a brightening mask, with not just clay, but also Yuzu lemon extract to brighten and even out skin. What I love about the L'oreal clay masks is you get a lot of product for your money, so you could buy 2 or 3 different masks to use for different concerns and they would last yonks. But onto this brightening one, first up its yellow which is a bit different, it applies really easily I use an old makeup brush to paint it on, it's not messy and doesn't get everywhere when applied, you can easily get on with something else in the 10 minutes it's on for. It also feels nice on the skin not drying or tightening and smells slightly of lemon but nothing overpowering. When it comes to removing I use warm water and a muslin cloth, and it rinses away pretty easily.

But what about your face Kate?

Well my face feels pretty damn lovely thank you, plus it makes me look glowy and fresh faced, what more can you ask from a ten minute treatment than to feel like you have a new, brighter, fresher complexion?

Pushing the barriers of my comfort zone


This year I have made a conscience decision to push the barriers of my comfort zone, in all areas of my life including how I dress. Suffering with anxiety often means I stay safe in my choices, not wanting to do things that I am uncertain of, do things a way I haven't before or just do something new, BUT I am working on that, taking small steps, never giving myself to big a challenge, where I would be set up to fail, instead congratulating myself on all achievements however small.

For me certain items of clothing are safe, people won't notice me wearing this, I won't draw attention to myself, people won't think I don't suit this, or am to old or the wrong body shape. That item for me is jeans. They are my comfort blanket, and probably always will be, but I am starting to try new things, I've branched into trousers and now this cute spotty skirt. In order to make this "safe" I toned down the girlieness with a band T-shirt, vans and a denim jacket. That's because I've never identified with being particularly girlie, and If I was to wear a girly outfit, I feel awkward like I would attract comments, probably not true, in reality I'm sure most people do not give a shit what I wear but the brain is a powerful thing.

Maybe one day I will get braver how I wear trousers and skirts, but for now small steps.
