By February 3, 2015 My Style, Shop

Well hello there my friends 🙂 I’m still feeling really rubbish with a stinking cold, but don’t worry, hopefully I’ll be on the mend soon! Anyway, today’s blog post is a little chatty one about Mooi en Lief… you mayyy recognise the name from this post… yeah, pretty exciting huh?! I just wanted to introduce you to them a bit more, and give you the chance to win an awesome prize…

Mooi En Lief Give-Away #MooiEnLiefbyTDP~ MEET MOOI EN LIEF ~

So you are probably first of all wondering, who on earth are Mooi en Lief? Well, they’re a dutch wellington boot brand! They’re main belief is that everybody is different, and that’s what they want to incorporate with their products. It’s one of the main reasons why I’m so happy I get to work with them, they have just the same mindset as me 🙂 Plus, just because wellies are practical, doesn’t mean they have to be boring, right? They’ve also recently introduced ‘Style Kits‘ into their range, which are super cool, but I’ll talk about them a little later.

Mooi en Lief sent me a pair of their Black Buckle wellies and they’re actually pretty cool. I love the laces at the back, they kind of remind me of the Chanel A/W 14′ collection… not sure why, but oh well! I took these pictures on New Year’s Eve when it was absolutely freezing and it’s safe to say that they kept my feet toasty and warm… they also did today when I went outside and sledged! YES! SNOW. We have snow and I am very happy about that, can you tell?!

My Style: Going On An Adventure*

By March 27, 2014 My Style

Hello everyone! Just a little fact before you starting reading this blog post… that title is actually from the Snowy Adventure episode of Tots TV… oh yes, how cool? Hahaha! Ah… the things my family think of when we go on a nice woodland walk… also, look at my bland straight hair for a good while longer… this maybe the last ever OOTD where it is pretty boring! I got some subtle layers in my hair, and it’s a bit shorter (picture here)! 😉 Also also! Look, look, look… I was interviewed by Company Magazine :O about my new site, Bundle! You can read it here! Snazzy!

my style joules ark clothing chelsea doll my style joules ark clothing chelsea dollWhat I Wore: French Navy Bouquet Shirt (Joules)*, H&M Monochrome Trousers (Jumble Sale), Faux Leather Biker Jacket £46.99 (ARK Clothing)*, Girls Red Seafarer Wellies £29.95 (Joules)*, Welly Socks £12.95 (Joules)* & ‘Scissor Sisters’ Necklace £15.00 (Chelsea Doll)*

Woahhh! Way too over exposed face… do excuse! There is this really lovely path near us which takes you through the woods and into this great big valley, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show off ma’ new red girls wellies! I think it makes a nice change to the usual outfit, because you can see what I really wear. I’m not saying what I wear isn’t what I wear (aha), I just mean that this is more casual and relaxed and perhaps a more day to day outfit! These wellies though *perfection hand sign* are so comfortable! I’ve worn them out and about and they are just so warm and snug! Paired with the Joules welly socks, they are the ultimate pair, and in my opinion, a bargain! They are in the kids section, but they go up to an adult size 7! And of course you cannot forget my blouse and faux leather jacket combo once again (see previous outfit here), my brother says it’s a James May shirt (-____-) but I say it is utterly gorgeous… and it is, for sure!

my style joules ark clothing chelsea doll my style joules ark clothing chelsea dollAhah! My face is so funny in that top picture… the path is very downhill so the walk back up made me all red faced! You can see my wellies in some underwater action too! No leakages so far, and it meant I could splash around and show off to my family who were all in normal shoes 😉 #WellyAdvantages 😉 Ooh ooh and you can see more of my AWESOME scissor necklace from Chelsea Doll! I love how it just peeps under the collar of my blouse and looks like it is almost embellished onto it! You can see a clearer picture below, FYI! I do have to say though, country walks are so nice, especially when you have a can of coke at the end 😉

my style joules ark clothing chelsea doll my style joules ark clothing chelsea dollGetting all jazzy with my editing again 😉 There’s not point wasting a good picture is there? May as well stick it as a border! I feel sad that I have walked in my wellies as much as I have… they’ve lost the shine they had *sob*… ah well, I guess I have my scissor necklace to make feel better! Honestly Chelsea Doll, you have some dayum good statement necklaces! 😀 I have a wishlist coming up soon which will feature 2 pieces which I would love to add to my collection! …for now though, I shall leave you with this funny GIF… I failed at doing the whole ‘whimsical blowing leaf GIF’… damn you wind for not helping it look even more awesome! 😉

My Style: London Retro & A Give-Away*

By March 5, 2014 Competitions, My Style

Hello! I will explain my theory further in this post, but I believe it maybe my first OOTD of Spring…. oh yes. It is so beautiful outside whilst I write this (sitting on a table by the window – actually quite uncomfortable being a bony person), and I cannot wait to start sitting outside more. Enjoy this blog post because it has a GIVE-AWAY in it and you know what that means 😉

What I Wore: Faux Leather Biker Jacket £46.99 (Hearts & Bows – ARK)*, French Navy Bouquet Blouse (Joules)*, Blue and White Skirt €5.00 (Jumble Sale), Blue Floral Keds (ASOS), NANCY Sunglasses (London Retro – My Optique)* & Facial Ring Set (Rings & Tings)*

This outfit is a really good transitional outfit in my opinion. The top half is quite autumnal and the bottom half quite spring like, but the way the blouse picks out the blue from the skirt, makes it acceptable. I have been wearing this faux leather and blouse combo so much since I received them both, and I am literally obsessed. Not only have I really been wanting a faux leather jacket for years, I am also on a bit of a ‘blouse high’. I’ve never been the biggest Joules fan, but my thoughts on the brand have definitely changed since getting this blouse because 1, the women’s shirts are amazing quality, and 2 – just because it has the sort of ‘Polo’ ‘Horse Riding’ theme around the brand, it doesn’t mean you have to style it that way which you can see by this outfit! The leather jacket is so nice, and it fits amazingly. It’s not shiny either so it looks really nice and not tacky. I absolutely love my bargain skirt too but the one thing is the buttons… I think I might do a bit of a tweak to them. Overall as I said, I really like this outfit and it has a good balance of colours and styles.

I’ve had my blue floral Keds for about a year now. I had some navy ones (I am pretty sure they were kids – much better size for my slim feet!) but I grew out of them, and just couldn’t live without them, so I went on ASOS and saw they were way cheaper than Schuh or Keds, and snapped up a pair, but unfortunately ‘adult sized’ Keds don’t fit me as well, so although they fit after yonks of waiting, they are still slightly sloppy. In terms of jewellery in this OOTD, I went with my 3 rings from Rings & Tings, which are gorgeous. I’m not the biggest fan of the lips one, but I think the eye and the faux ruby look amazing. I’ve never really worn gold and silver together, but I think they look very nice together.

The sunglasses I am wearing are from London Retro. As a blogger I know all the gossip about PR reviews and things like that, and reviewing a pair of these I guess is known as ‘controversial’, but I decided I would review them for you, and let everybody know what they are really like. I’m a big fan of quite round sunglasses because I think they look really summery and (London) retro 😉 😉 and when I first tried these on, I wasn’t quite sure they suited me, but looking back at these pictures, I have decided they don’t look half bad!  I would have to say I am more of a ‘big’ sunglasses fan, and these come  up quite small on me, which is one thing to take into consideration seeing as I am only a small little person. One thing I found different compared to the pictures on the site is that the blue in the tortoise shell doesn’t come up as bright and as obvious. For those of you who need prescription lenses, these are available like that too! If you would like to win ANY pair from London Retro… here is what you need to do…

My Style: Sweet Sweet Meringue*

By January 19, 2014 My Style

Hello! I’m back with another ‘My Style’ OOTD for you! I’m obsessed with The Carrie Diaries at the moment, so this outfit is definitely inspired by her style. I love mixing prints anyway, but this combo is awesome… in my opinion 😉

my style ark clothing punkypins asos pink coat ss14 trendWhat I Wore: Pink Coat* (ARK Clothing – No longer available), Zebra Print Turtle Neck (Jumble Sale), Denim Camouflage Skirt £9.00 (ASOS), Floral Necklace £15.00* (Punky Pins) & Metallic Soldier Heels (ASOS – Give-Away Prize)

Do you remember my Christmas Wishlist? Well, one of the items was a gorgeous pair of Soldier heels from ASOS, and look what I have! The ASOS Santa was doing a Give-Away, and I won some! YAY! I also treated myself to this skirt in the sale, and I am so happy I did! It’s so nice, and I’ve never had a denim skirt before so this is a nice all season addition. 2 other additions to my wardrobe, are my pink coat – so trendy 😉 😉 – and my gorgeous necklace. I love them both so much! The coat actually fits so nicely, and it’s a size 8 as well, so well done ARK! Unfortunately I have 1 broken version of this necklace, and 1 good version, which is a shame, but it is very good quality and even has sparkles in it… win win! If my hair was blonde and curly, I could get away as Carrie Bradshaw right? Gahh, I wish my hair wasn’t so bland… I mean, most people would love to have straight soft hair, but I would do anything for a bit of shape and volume. I finished Season 1 of The Carrie Diaries within like, 5 days… and I bought the book… and I kinda’ really want to just be her… *sigh* …although, am I the only one who doesn’t find Sebastian attractive? No? Just me… rightio… *awkward whistle*

I love all of the colours against each other in this outfit, and I can get away with wearing thick tights too! I love, love lovepastel against monochrome as well, it looks so purrrrty. Oh, and if you are interested, that is how high the shoes are! They’re pretty high, and make me taller than my sister, but they are so comfortable because they have a block heel. I’m just getting used to walking in them seeing as I’m more of a flats gal, but other than stairs, I seem to be doing well. Holographic shoes are in my wardrobe guys… mission accomplished 😀 Take a look at that meringue too… oh it was SO good! Definitely picture worthy! So picture worthy, I had to have these funny ones taken…

I honestly cannot wait until the summer when I can whip off those thick tights and coat. Summer here in France is so beautiful and makes me so happy, and I miss it like mad. Plus it means I can get a tan – Oh dear, I just said that in my head like Donna from TCD… oops… probably not the best of people to think it like… – and I can go to the beach and lay by the pool (if the wasps aren’t buzzing around, I have a HUGE phobia) and drink as many glasses of Coca-Cola that I wish…

My Style: Christmas Is On The Horizon

By December 17, 2013 My Style

IT’S CHRISTMAS! …time! It’s official, even to you grinches out there, that it is Christmas!  The tree is up, the decorations are out, and the films are on AND I have snow falling on my blog (so festive)! So, what’s better than a bit of a novelty Christmas OOTD? Excuse the cray-cray hair… it was windy okay! Oh and FYI, I have tights on! 

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionmy style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashion

What I Wore: Christmas Pudding Jumper £18.00* (Not for Ponies), Black Velvet Pinafore £22.99* (ARK, Hearts & Bows), Bobbly Santa Headband, & Chelsea Boots (Jumble Sale).

As I said this is a ‘novelty’ outfit, but I actually quite like it… I’m not sure these windy pictures really do the pieces justice, but all of them are really comfortable! I’ve always wanted a pinafore skirt, and this velvet one is perfect! It’s a really nice velvet too, the inside isn’t scratchy and it’s adjustable which is a plus! It looks like a skort in these pictures, but it’s just a plain skater skirt bottom, and I think even with a light t-shirt this could be an all year piece! (PLUS You can get 25% off at ARK with the code: TOLLY25 so happy shopping!) The jumper though… maybe just for winter! I love Not For Ponies, and this jumper is so so warm and snug! I love it to bits! The full appliqué is a Christmas Pud with a moustache! A moustache… I mean?! #christmasswagger

I can’t remember where this is from, or when I got it, but I love my bobbly santa headband! I walked in to McD’s to get a quick snack and by my surprise nobody even smiled at it which sort of made me sad, but oh well! Yes, I do wear it out… Look at that view though? So beautiful! We had a quick drink at this lovely cafe/bookshop and it was very cosy, and they had gorgeous twinkly lights! I really do love this time of the year and I can’t wait for the rest of my family to come over! 😀

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionI never really do book reviews on here, but I got really excited about fellow blogger, Natasha from The Girl In The Lens‘ book, I just had to let you know about it! If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, you will love this book! ‘THE ELITES‘ is about a city in the future and the two main characters, Silver and Butterfly. Silver is a ‘Red’ and has even more of a struggle through the troubles she gets into, and Butterfly finds out more about his past. It’s a really interesting book and had me hooked the whole way through! Natasha is so nice, and has let me ask her a few questions about her writing…

When you were writing The Elites, did any of your past personal experiences go into it? I didn’t intentionally include events or experiences from my past, but I’m sure they affected how I wrote the book. The racial issues are definitely influenced by me being mixed race and having been brought up in two very different countries and cultures, and my time spent in Malaysia (where my mum is from) and travelling with my parents also inspired the cultural landscape of Neo-Babel. Especially all the food references!

Throughout The Elites you are extremely good at using metaphors, personification etc to describe things, what would be your biggest tip for keeping that up throughout your writing? Oh thank you! I’m so glad you thought so. My biggest tip for varied and unique description is to really immerse yourself in every scene. Imagine you’re there. Feel the slap of the wind on your face, the roar of the air rushing past your ears. Taste the bite of the wind-blown saltwater on your tongue. Just really try and put yourself in each and every scene, noticing every little detail. Then, when you come to describing it as you write, you’ll have so many different sensory experiences to draw from!

Who is your favourite character in The Elites? (Mine has got to be Butterfly!) Butterfly has pretty much been everyone’s favourite so far, which is great, as he’s one of mine too! I love how grounded and strong he is in his values, and how he keeps Silver steady, helping her through the darkest of times. People keep telling me off for giving Butterfly such a tragic story, since he’s such a nice guy!

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionI’m not sure whether my brother really wanted this out on the internet, but I just had to put it up! He is a bit silly when I am trying to get good pictures… grr! I was so annoyed I had to clearly express myself *face palm* Hahaha!

Keeping Warm with ARK Clothing*

By December 5, 2013 Fashion

Brrr! It’s a bit cold isn’t it? I have to wear thick tights underneath jeans at the moment! As it is so cold, I thought it would be fitting to do this post about Winter fashion with one of my favourite online shops, ARK Clothing!

Ark Clothing Criminal Damage AX Paris Cheap Monday Winter Warmers Sponsored Blog PostCriminal Damage//AX Paris//Cheap Monday (Brands at ARK Clothing – accessories from other brands on the site!)

When I think about dressing for winter, I think comfortable clothes, layers and pieces which are nice and thick, so that is why I selected the three main items in the image above! The Criminal Damage sweater is really warm and snug, and wearing thick sweatshirts in Winter is one of my favourite things to do! I’m not the biggest fan of slogan tops, but this one is in a versatile colour so could go with lots of different things, and would be perfect for casual wear! The AX Paris dress is my favourite piece! I absolutely love swing dresses at the moment because I think they are so flattering and comfortable, and this one is just perfect for the season! I love how it is quite Burberry-esque with the heart print. I also love how it could be dressed up or down, so to be honest, it is quite a good investment! When it comes down to jeans though, this Cheap Monday pair are my cup of tea! They have that slight worn out look, and look super duper comfy! As styled in the picture, they would look great with boots or perhaps a pair of flats and thick socks (or tights underneath!). With any of these pieces, you could layer them with a big fluffy snood, a pair of boots and a nice dainty necklace – oh, and don’t forget those gloves! Everything looks so cosy and warm!

I really like everything at ARK Clothing at the moment, and some of the brands they have are really nice and have some great bargains! I hope you liked this post and if you did, make sure to leave a comment!
