Preparing for AW15

Sunday, August 30, 2015

Hey guys,

Hope you have had a lovely bank holiday weekend, so far!

I have been so disappointed with the weather and have therefore decided to prepare my autumn/winter wardrobe! One key piece that I think all of you girls should have in your wardrobe is a poncho.

Mine is by Quiz Clothing and the colours are relatively neutral, perfect for a simple yet on-trend look. It is an over-sized style and therefore one size fits all. I can just see it coming in very handy for those chilly mornings! You may be wondering if the material is itchy or uncomfortable but it is one of the softest I have felt. I think I will be guilty of curling up and falling asleep in it! 

I also love the way it hangs! It is available here for £26.99. Quiz have some gorgeous pieces this season and I would definitely suggest having a little peek! Their footwear is a particular fave of mine! 

I styled mine up with my classic River Island jeans and my Linzi shoes, available here

World Duty Free..

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Hi girls!

I am back to the blogging world after a lovely holiday in Dubai. I wanted to share with you an experience that I think many of you are probably unaware of! When travelling abroad, many of us hit World Duty Free for those last minute bargains, but there is SO much more on offer other than just shopping.

I popped into World Duty Free and was greeted with an amazing personal shopping experience! Myself and my boyfriend were treated to Mojitos to begin, (they are available to all visitors), they really are the perfect way to start a holiday! I then headed to Creme De La Mer for a complimentary facial - much needed before a long-haul flight! It was a very relaxing experience and I could not believe how soft my skin felt afterwards! I would definitely recommend visiting them before your flight and sampling some of their products, what have you got to lose?!

I then felt a little self-concious without any make-up on, especially before a holiday! So, I popped to Bobbi Brown for a makeover session, again completely complimentary! The lovely make-up artist gave me a very natural look, which was perfect for my night flight. Before I left I had to purchase a new eyeliner, it would be rude not too! I decided to try out a brown eyeliner as I usually stick to black!

As if all of the pampering wasn't enough, I finished my world duty free experience with a lovely hand and arm massage at Jo Malone. They have a menu and you can pick the treatment you would like, the majority are only 5 minutes long so you can squeeze it in before your flight.

I feel the whole duty free experience really adds to the start of your holiday, there are plenty of brands and experiences to choose from! The staff are extremely friendly and made myself and my boyfriend feel very welcome! They could not do enough to help us and made our whole experience completely stress free!

Next time you're off on holiday, pop into World Duty Free! You won't regret it...

All White Everything...

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Hello girls!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! I have busy preparing for my trip to Dubai tomorrow, but I just had to share with you one of the outfits that will be coming along!

I am loving lace trims at the moment and this gorgeous two piece is by Luxemme, a luxury fashion brand based in Manchester. If I am honest, I don't usually wear two - pieces as I find them a little unflattering on my body shape. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this beaut one on, it fitted perfectly! It epitomizes class and I think it will look perfect on holiday! 

It is available here for £35 and I am wearing a size 10. It is part of the Limited Edition collection so get yours quick! 

I stuck to the white theme and added these gorgeous Public Desire heels! I cannot believe they were only £19.99 in the sale! I think they complimented the whole 'classy' style of the outfit. I usually struggle with heels but these are very easy to walk in and for £19.99 you can't go wrong. Get yours here.

Look out for my Dubai holiday outfit pictures over on my Instagram this week!

Pauls Boutique AW15

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Morning girls!!

As we all just a few weeks summer will (sadly) be over! However, it means we can all purchase our AW wardrobe!

Last week, I collaborated with Pauls Boutique and I cannot get over how classy their new collection is! I have never previously owned a Pauls Boutique bag as, if I'm honest, they were a bit too 'out there' for me. I think this is why I LOVE the new collection so much. I decided to show you all the gorgeous 'Bethany' handheld bag in 'Stone'.

I absolutely love how simple yet classy this bag is! It is the perfect size, it isn't too small and it isn't so big that it feels like you are carrying a mini suitcase! It is available here for £68 and it is also available in Electric Blue. I love the added bonus of a detachable shoulder strap!

I have also picked out a few other AW items below that I think you will love!

The Drew Handheld Bag is the perfect accessory to an everyday work outfit, it has spacious compartments enabling you to keep all those important items safe! Available here for £75.

I love this Mila Tote Bag! It will certainly have you feeling catwalk-ready! Available here for £70.

Finally, the Casey backpack is the perfect day-bag! Again, another simple design but very stylish at the same time. Available here for £70. 

Thanks for reading girls!

P.s the dress is by In The Style and you can save 10% using code 'LAUREN10'.

Hello August..

Wednesday, August 05, 2015

So...this is my first post of August and it is a look I couldn't wait to share with you!

This look is perfect for being on-trend this summer! The gorgeous lace up dress is by In The Style and I absolutely love it. I often find that some white dresses can be a little see-through but this one isn't and so I feel very comfortable wearing it. In The Style have such a gorgeous variety of dresses on offer and my one is available here for £24.99. Remember you can save 10% on any item using code 'Lauren10'. For any of you who may be wondering, I am wearing a size 10. 

I styled the dress with the ultimate Michael Kors nude shoes by Shoeaholics. In case you don't already know, Shoeaholics is the 'go to' website for discounted designer heels. They are operated by Kurt Geiger, meaning you can get access to all of the best styles from a variety of brands! My 'Odelia' beauties are available here for £99 BUT for this week only you can save an extra 20% using code 'LAURENSHOE20'. They are also available in black for just £69, (without my discount code) so this really is the perfect time to treat yourself. 

Finally, I styled my hair using my Bombay Hair, 5 in 1 curling wand and my hat is from Primark.
