NEW YEAR, NEW CLOTHES FT. STYLEWE

The new year is always an excuse to set new goals and to try to create a better and improved version of ourselves. Hence the popularity of new year’s resolutions - eating healthy, working out, being organised, etc. You know the drill.

Fashion is one of many ways of expression. What you wear sends a message to everyone who sees you and it portrays yourself to the world. So with only a few weeks into 2017, many of us are looking to renew our wardrobe, and to find pieces that really represent us and makes us feel who we are. 

Now that I am 21 (scary, I know), I want to try and dress a bit more classy and stop wearing leggings almost every day. One of my favourite shops to get new clothes from is StyleWe - it’s an online fashion store with anything from jumpers, to skirts to hoodies. I find that most of their pieces look very stylish and classy, whilst being rather inexpensive at the same time. 

They have a lot of one piece jumpsuits which I feel are perfect for me because they are the mixture of comfort and chic; kind of like classy sweatpants. As someone who is quite short and not very big in general, I sometimes struggle to find clothes that fit me properly length-wise. They offer many petite jumpsuit styles that cater for many different tastes and look super cute!

I thought I would share some of my favourite items from their website with you. Some of these items I don’t think I would ever be able to pull them off regardless of how much I love them (not everyone is Kylie Jenner…), but some other styles are definitely very wearable and easy to style!

RECENT FAVOURITES





I am the kind of person who will get obsessed with random things for a month or so and then I’ll forget about it as soon as I find something else I adore. I guess it’s the novelty of new or forgotten old things. 

From body sprays to watches and food. We all have this one favourite type, brand, style, etc. So here are some of the things I’ve been loving recently.

Let’s start off with my all time favourite item. Everyone knows the classic black and white Anthropolgie mug with the different letters. I had been wanting it ever since I laid my eyes on it. When I walked into the store in December and saw the golden version of it I almost squeaked and obviously had to get it. I've been seeing it everywhere since it came out, countless bloggers and instagrammers have it and no wonder why. It’s so stunning and makes me feel classy. The only downside is that it’s not microwavable which is a bit annoying. 

Next thing is something I never thought I would have, let alone love it so much. It’s a Daniel Wellington watch. I had heard of the brand and had seen many people raving about it. When I heard the name Daniel Wellington, I immediately thought of their famous pink and blue watch (which I very much dislike) which is why I was pleasantly surprised when I got this one for Christmas. I love how simple and minimalistic it looks. My favourite bit is the rose gold detailing, and it looks so beautiful with the brown leather strap!


Something else I have been loving is VS Pink’s Wild At Heart body mist. I much prefer body sprays to perfumes for an every day use. Not only because they are lighter but because they are also more affordable. This one is a ‘refreshing body mist with red passion fruit and sheer musk’ - all I can say is that it smells very sweet and fresh so if you’re into this kind of scents you will love it! 


Finally, my last favourite is something I first didn’t quite like. It’s Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid in Possessed Plum. I say that I didn’t like it when I first bought it because it’s not really matte. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was expecting a similar look to Kylie’s - you know, that gorgeous rich matte look. This is a beautiful colour and it looks very nice on but it doesn’t 100% dry out so, even though it’s not shiny, it doesn’t look very matte either. Nevertheless, I love it and it’s my go-to lip product when I want a bold lip!

2017 FIRST CLOTHING HAUL!

Je suis back! After several weeks of barely no social life and no free time, I have now taken (and hopefully passed) what’s probably my last final ever. It feels so weird. Let’s stop talking about school though.

About a week ago I received some super cool clothes from one of my favourite online stores, Zaful*. They always have such cute stuff and their workout clothes are the best! Online shopping is my favourite way of procrastination so obviously some damage was done during this past month. Here you have the outcome. 


My favourite item is by far these mesh leggings. I’ve been wanting ones like these forever but could never find the perfect ones. I love how the mesh adds some edginess to my outfit and it makes me look so sporty!

I also got  some fancier tops which I very much needed. I’m a bit obsessed with velvet so got a velvet black long-sleeved crop top and a velvet pink-ish top (the colour looks a bit weird on the photo, it's a bit more brown in real life). I feel like the black one will look incredible with a black skater skirt or black high waisted jeans. 


Off the shoulder tops were all I wore during summer so, in an attempt to make winter feel slightly more like summer, I decided to get a long-sleeved version. As one might expect, it is not the ideal warm item to wear when it’s below zero degrees. However, on those warmer winter days it’s something great to wear with a warm coat. 

Another more summery top I also got is a simple black crop top with the very well known and super trendy zig-zag cross thingy. I can’t wait for summer so I can wear this with a pair of high waisted denim shorts and dainty jewellery. 

Finally, I got a red hoodie because you can never have enough hoodies. This hoodie with the mesh leggings is currently my go-to outfit when I’m not feeling tight jeans. It’s so comfy but it looks like I’m going to the gym and have my life together. Win-win. 



And that’s all I got this time around, I’m ridiculously thrilled to ditch my revision sweatpants and start wearing cute clothes again!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!



HAPPY 2017!!💥

I have spent the last few weeks revising 24/7 for my January Exams, which is why I haven't really been active on here. But I wanted to write a short post and wish you all a happy new year! We all know 2016 wasn't the best year in human history so hopefully 2017 is going to be somewhat better, and maybe we human beings stop messing with everything we can. 

I will be back in about a week and start posting regularly again but for now, I'll leave you with some of my new year's resolutions. Maybe putting them on the Internet will make me stick to them, for once. 

  • Write more
  • Spend less time on my phone/social media
  • Read books instead of watching movies
  • Eat less sugar
  • Wake up before 8AM every day
  • Actually read AND reply to text messages 
  • Only eat out once a week
  • Drink more water

And remember, as the wise Dumbledore once said:

 "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
