July Roundup

With this month almost over, I thought I would share my random favourites from books to beauty bits and what I've got up to. July was the month I not only discovered my doppelgänger in Mindy Kaling but also became a frequent trainer wearer and so without further ado, my July roundup…
. New Balance 574
I really didn't intend for my feet to somehow become surgically glued to these trainers but somehow they did and I am not complaining because they not only look cool but they are super comfortable. I spotted this burgundy pair in Schuh on Oxford Street and decided to get my hands on them fully intending to wear them when running errands and whatnot. That didn't really work out and as such I’ve worn them more or less every other day this month, these trainers work with any outfit and help pull of that effortless sporty chic look.

Tourist For A Day: Brighton

Until last weekend, I had never been to Brighton but now that I have there’s sure to be regular visits preferably lasting more than a day. I went up to Brighton with my mum on Sunday and with just one day to spare we wanted to visit all the ‘touristy’ spots. With our extensive “research”, a plan of attack and my sometimes unreliable Google Maps app we arrived at Brighton station around 11am on Sunday.

The Bare Necessities

The sun is out and I've decided it's no longer acceptable to lug around my big bottomless totes around London. For a change I've opted for a small cross-bodied bag (similar here), this means I've had to break down what's in my bag to the very bare necessities which I may add has been no easy feat. Now that I've done it and survived venturing outside my house without a fistful of old receipts stashed in bag, I feel rather accomplished and feel like I deserve a pat on the back. Before I get ahead of myself, let's get on with my spring/summer essentials for my bag...

The Closet Confidential Tag

Today, I'm going to be doing the Closet Confidential Tag which I believe was created by Fleur DeForce on Youtube. I've wanted to do a tag on my blog for a while now and I really like the questions for this tag so I thought I would give it a go.                          

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?    
I recently did a major clear out in my wardrobe so the oldest item in my wardrobe is from about three years ago when I was fifteen. It's a pair of flared patchwork jeans from a store called Justice. They don't fit me anymore but I keep them hidden in my wardrobe for a good laugh. I used to style them with cropped tops, I still cringe just thinking about how ridiculous I looked.
