My More Magazine Shoot!

Hi chickadees! Ooo this post is fun to write as it gives me a huuuge smile to say I was in More Magazine! I couldn't get chance to blog as the time but it was a couple of issues ago as I was part of their 'How would you wear...' feature, where five different girls style up an item with their own wardrobe. We got sent a picture of the item a few days before the London shoot, which were a pair of Jaeger cropped floral trousers at a hefty £99. Each issue the different item is something quite hard to style so I was super pleased these trousers were simple, even though I only ever wear high waist bottoms and these were so not my style!

My outfit was totally something I would wear though! Also handy as I had already turned up to the shoot wearing this hat, top and bag, with the Jeffrey Campbell studded shoes freshly purchased from the Office in Topshop Oxfrd Circus. Yes I got them just for this day and took them straight back afterwards - they were incredibly uncomfortable haha!

I did originally bring a stack of Motel to wear but none of our prints quite went with the trousers, so I went back to my Tobi off shoulder lace crop top (now sold out) which I love! I'll do a separate post on Tobi as it's a newish US website and I had a mixed order from them - I loved this top but returned a dress that was absolutely awful in real life! I'm OBSESSED with off the shoulder tops and dresses right now - look out for more from Motel soon like this dip dye Dana Off Shoulder Crop!

And did you ever think I'd wear a hat? Well you know I'm having a bit of a Demi Lovato fan girl moment and the wide brim hat is totally me wanting to have her hair and look! Its a H&M bowler hat but in size Large so the brim is wider, and I just sit it on the back of my hair! I added some small accessories from the amazing table on offer and my Topshop rucksack that I've been using all year, and that was the outfit complete!

Thank you to More Magazine who featured some Motel items too and the awesome hair and makeup team, what a treat! The photos themselves only took five minutes to shoot and I did a lot of fake laughing haha!

You can apply to be in the feature as a blogger or reader too just by emailing They've recently had a makeover and it is packed with fashion trends and high street buys, and is the most readable weekly out there right now. We get them all each week at work and I don't know why Look magazine has gone all Dorothy Perkins on us but More is my new weekly magazine fix!

A Big Catch Up Part 1

Hello!! Hi! Haaaiii there! My gosh it is dusty around here and I need to clean up and ship shape! I'm sorry I haven't been posting in so long, to be honest I'm not quite sure where the time has gone, what happened to summer! As I have my family and a lot of friends in a different city, it's harder to prioritise time and work around five days a week of actual work! Also a bigger part was that I lost my camera at Wireless, the topic of my last post, so a) I don't have any photos of my outfit (which in the end was a Motel white bralette and high waist denim shorts!) and b) I don't have evidence of the amazing occasion that was Drakeeee! I enjoyed it an insane amount, and we stayed in a gorgeous London apartment for cheapie cheap with a skyline balcony view! I would absolutely go to a festival just for the day again as you walked in feeling super fresh and knew you had a nice bed to go home to so could party all day!

Also this month I went to Barcelona! You might remember I went to Madrid this year too and again my friends and I wanted a holiday destination that was less 18-30 and more party-classy, if that makes sense. We basically didn't want to go somewhere with drunken louts from England! So we booked amazingly cheap flights to Barcelona and a hostel like last time, and off we went! It came around really fast and had me buying heels and lashes literally the day before.

Barcelona is perfect for a girls break! We stayed at the Melon District Hostel which has nothing hostel-y about it apart from that it is student halls in the year. There is mega security and you swipe in and out of everything, and you have a free safe in your room and ensuite so I would never think twice about staying there if you're not into hostels! There was a pool but we went there on the first day and it was just slightly small and awkward, so we spent most of the time off getting lost, nearly turning over rowing boats, lying on the beach and trying to find clubs to go to.

As it was a holiday, I took clothes I wouldn't normally wear to clubs here! It was chance to dress a bit brighter and more fun in my eyes, and despite not being sure of the excessive height of them, my New Look wedges were worn every night! I don't have photos of all my outfits as I did order a new camera but it came on the day I was leaving with no charge and no charger, so here are the two where my friends aren't in them. I'm not sure if they want to be on the blog despite being killer babes, but I do know Sarah was very proud of her socks and sandals look for the whole holiday! I said she had styleee.

The outfit above was from the second night where we went to a little club in La Rambla which the taxi driver warned us not to go to. This is probably because we were all dressed up but actually don't want to go to the commercial places and wanted a little, grimy hole in the wall! I wore a Topshop bra top with skulls on and my American Apparel circle skirt, which makes you feel mega cute! I also wore bright lipstick and lashes throughout the holiday, feeling like a doll!


Then I don't usually mention this here but it was my birthday while I was over there! We were actually flying home on the day at lunch time so we went out the night before, to celebrate my birthday at midnight, to a club called Razzmatazz which was HUGE and had so many rooms, almost like arenas! Never been anywhere with so many people! The music was a strange mix of unknown indie but I flashed around my birthday badges with much happiness on my Motel Janet Playsuit! Now I would neeever usually wear a playsuit but this one as a super low V neckline which makes it damn gorgeous! I would wear tit tape in the day time but I wore a bikini on holiday underneath and it was perfect for a smaller bust as that means it's not really revealing at all (I don't have a lot to reveal!). New favourite!

I also have another exciting happening but I'll have to tell you tomorrow as it's bedtime already! Until then chicklettes, prepare to see alot more around here soon x
