The sun may be shinning but it’s still pretty darn cold out there, any excuse to add to my ever-growing polo neck collection but just warm enough to ditch the coat. This Boden jumper you may remember from this post, having worn it so many times I feel like I can justify getting the same one in black. Trust me, it’s a winner.

Giving head to toe black a go, with Topshop Joni jeans and a pair of Clarks originals. A web exclusive; these desert boots have been given a fresh new seasonal look with a higher and tighter ankle. I was unsure a first but they’ve really grown on me…what do you think? Adding some colour with the amazing silver backpack from Boden and this super cute tan watch from Olivia Burton.

Simple for Sunday. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

HABITAT & BIRCHBOX.

Birch Box and Habitat
It wasn’t going to be long before two of my favourtie things (other than my #OOTD) came together on Love Cloth - Beauty and interiors.
I have done many a post on my monthly treats from Birchbox. For those of you who haven’t heard of it before, basically you receive five personalised beauty samples every month and when you find one you love you can buy a full-size version on the Birchbox website. Simples.
This Month they’ve teamed up with Habitat for a ‘DO TRY THIS AT HOME’ partnership. Motivating us to refresh things at home. 



“Your house is your temple, so why not make it - and yourself - look fabulous.’

Now is the time for a spring clean, whether it’s your beauty regime or even just clearing out your wardrobe… I’m doing both.

Interiors

Habitat
One of my main aims for spring is to finally declutter and get my flat in order, starting with some pretty storage from Habitat. I don’t think I’ve ever got so much love on instagram before but I do love my new set up with this Yeoman console table and trunks.
What better way to make your new storage feel welcome, than to fill it with some new treats?
I have been running low on lots of beauty favourties this month, as well as wanting to try something new.

Birch Box Beauty

Ren Beauty
First up, the base. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt is that it's all about the base.
I’ve been testing the REN Rosa Centifolia cleanser, which has been great for my dry skin. I’m a big fan of balm-turned-cleansing milks and this has left my skin soft and glowing.

For something new, I wanted to try HealGel. With a description that reads "Diminish dark circles, puffiness and fine lines in one with this advanced eye formula from HealGel." You can count me in!

Philip Kingsley
This is my 3rd tub of the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. My hair has become very broken during winter; this literally brings back that nice hairdresser bounce and shine. Highly recommend!
For something new I thought that if the above product is so great I need to try more, like the Moisture Balancing Conditioner which I use daily to add moisture to those pesky dry ends.

Benefit make up
Spring calls for some glow back into my make up routine and with that I’m going back to an old favourtie Benefit High Beam. I love to drop a few bits into my foundation for high impact dewy look.
To make sure all stays in place I’m using Laura Mercier Foundation primer. The perfect antidote to stop all that hard work sliding off your face during the day.
Or if you want to really declutter your makeup bag, I’m trying Stila stay all day 10 in 1!  A primer, moisturiser, anti-ageing serum and sheer foundation all-in-one, it great when you want give you skin an off day.

I hope you enjoyed tonights post. Let me know if you'd like to see more beauty, interiors or both?

When in doubt, wear denim. If like me the past few months have seen you coveting all things denim, then look no further than M&S SS15 denim hub. From dungarees to A-line skirts, they’ve got it all.

Todays look of choice - The Canadian Tuxedo. I do love a bit of double denim, next on my list to attempt is the completely matching vibe but until then I’m going for 'shades of' with this pale blue shirt and dark denim ripped skinnies.
Teamed with a grey fedora and my new Pauls Boutique purse/bag. I adore this little bag for the daily essentials, money/phone and then if I need to I can just pop it inside my bigger bag. Ever so handy for sunny Sunday strolls around London.

How have I gone this far without mentioning the weather. Glorious. Hope you all had a lovely weekend :)

Just when I had given up hope on LFW, I give it one last chance and it prevails. Last Saturday I ventured to Somerset House in my favourite #OOTD and wasn’t disappointed.

The day kicked off with the Orla Kieley presentation, which was just perfection. Geek chic at it’s best with a mix of 70’s vibes. Finishing touches like the bags and shoes in collaboration with Clarks have me wishing AW15 would hurry itself along.
After, it was off to the Apartment to catch up with friends, refuel and recharge.
Followed by Somerset house which was full of its usual eclectic mix and after catching the Holly fulton show I was ready to practice my own blue steel posing.

I think this could possibly be my new favourite outfit. The closest I’m getting to The Pixie dress by Alexa Chung. Miss Selfridge has got this covered. Worn with this amazing suede jacket and if there is one fabric i've been coveting this spring it's suede. Thank you Miss Selfridge for these two absolute beauty.

Free people jumper

I’ve been meaning to post about this Free People jumper for quite some time now and I don’t know why its taken me so long because I wear it all the time. Like, ALL the time.
To be honest, every time I was wearing it somewhere and I had my camera to take snaps I kept thinking the look wasn’t particularly “blog worthy”. Even saying that makes me feel slightly cringe.

It wasn't because I didn't like the jumper or that I didn't like the look. It was more because I was simply wearing jeans and a jumper and I talk myself into thinking you guys would find that boring.
Do other bloggers ever get this feeling?

A jumper referred to as 'zipper cape' could never be boring, nor is anything from Free People for 
that matter. (I am their BIGGEST fan) Especially when paired with these Clarks silver shoes and a beautiful Strathberry of Scotland bag.
If in doubt, jeans and a jumper are always a winning look - simple and chic! So on that note, next on my list is this paired with white skinnies. Shades of white anyone?
I'd love to hear what you think. Do you like to see everyday kind of outfits or prefer more trend led looks?

January seems to be the month to get fit and make some new years resolutions... but January flew by with no appropriate time to start and who wants to go out in that freezing cold weather anyway, am I right? February is slowly making the same mark on my non existent ‘must get fit’ routine.
UNTIL! If there is one way to get me feeling active it’s treating myself to new sports clobber. Ok, I will admit, probably the feeblest of reasons but it works for me.
Getting out in the fresh air really makes you feel 100% times better even if you need a good kick up the butt to get out there.
These Nike leggings have all the mod cons – like mesh insets on the back of the knees and a handy back pocket. My usual head to toe monochrome look gets itself a splash of colour with the Nike sports bra under my top.
Of course what #fblogger look isn’t complete without some Nike running shoes, although this time i'm putting these free runners to some actual work.

What gets you motivated?
