Blog Swap | The Camera's Lying

Hi Fay's blog and blog readers! I'm Amy from the blog 'The Camera's Lying' or the 'TheCameraLiesBeauty' on youtube. I've known Fay for close to two years now (how time flies!) and always admired her style and keen eye for fashion. Her blog is somewhere I go to when I need some outfit inspiration. Fay and I decided to guest post on each others blogs, for a creativity boost and to add some fresh content to each of our blogs- mix it up a bit! 

My post today is an outfit I chose to wear on a blustery day trip to the beach. It was sunny, but quite windy. I wanted to give of June vibes in my outfit, whilst also staying snug. I paired a high waisted aztec print skirt from Warehouse, with my Primark knitted kimono for a warm twist on a Summer staple. I add a simple white tee and pink sandals to tie the look nicely together, without taking away from the amazing print of the skirt. For accessories, I couldn't help but wear my brand new head piece from Primark. I feel exotic and stylish in it, and no one would ever guess it only cost me £4! I finished off the look with my pretty floral ring from Pia Jewellery and that was it!

Let me know in the comments below what you think of my excursion outfit, and if you are as into head pieces as I am. Don't forget to head on over to my blog, to read Fay's post and thank you to Fay for guest posting with me!

Life's For The Living

So here I am again, unsure of how to start a blogpost. So instead of trying to think of something different and witty to say.. I'll just kick it off with hello, and hope you are well!
Now that's over.. I'm excited to share with you this post because I'm featuring a necklace from TreasureBox which is an online jewellery/accessory store which stock lots of beautiful items!

I must say, I'm never one for wearing big statement necklaces but when Emily, the style editor at TreasureBox contacted me, I asked her to send me anything she'd think I like! 
I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled out this 'treasure' from the little brown satin pouch! Made up of my favourite colours, baby pink, pastel mint green and white, I couldn't wait to style it!

The necklace is big and 'statement' but the pastel colours make it very easy to wear for both day and night. I didn't feel overdressed wearing it in the day, which is always a fear that I aught to get over with big statement jewellery, but it made my simple outfit 'pop' which is always a plus! For the evening, pairing this with a little black dress would also be a perfect duo!

For the rest of my outfit, I wore my white Topshop crop top, black h&m blazer, Topshop Joni jeans, Topshop hat, and my new kitten heels from New Look.

I hope you liked this post, and gave you an idea of how to style statement necklaces if you, like me are never ones to run to the bold necklaces hanging up in the shops! But I have been converted and will definitely be doing that next time I'm in town! 

Thanks again to TreasureBox for the necklace!

Take care,

You Shine Even On A Rainy Day

Oh would you look at that! Fay's wearing the jumpsuit... again!
But in my defence, I wasn't planning on blogging my outfit today, I was going for a nice Sunday walk around town and we stumbled across some really amazing places that would be perfect for pictures!
So I will certainly come back...but in a different outfit! I promise! But when I like something, I obsess. It's the same with songs, I play them over and over till I'm sick of them!
My two friends Natalie, Shane and myself tried a little Italian restaurant I've been eyeing up the past few weeks and it was so good! My belly was so content. Definitely found a little treasure, and it's right on my door step, which I would say was a good thing, but my growing tummy and decreasing bank balance might state otherwise!

Kimono - H&M, Jumpsuit - Topshop Petite, Shoes - New Look,  Hat - Topshop, Bag - Accessorize

Also the day these photos were shot, I popped into Topshop and picked up this gorgeous black hat. I've wanted one for ages and as I was filming a video in London Monday, I finally got around to picking one up! I think it's going to be another staple item in my wardrobe, it will go with any outfit and any colour... so easy and simple to wear!

So today is Monday and I just got back from a day in London shooting a street style video. I can't wait to edit the clips that Mollie and myself got! Mollie is an amazing photographer and agreed to help me make this 'What's London wearing' video! So a big thank you to Mollie for filming! I will link Mollie's social networks below!

Thank you for reading guys, take care,
