Eco Friendly Nails With Soigne

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me rave about this brand quite a few times! Soigne make nail varnishes that are not only incredibly chic but are botanically formulated, with 85% of their ingredients sourced directly from plants. For those interested, you can read more on their ethical policies here

The collection photographed here is called the Bordeaux collection....and being a self confessed red wine-o-holic.... I was immediately drawn to this set. The red is incredibly deep and rich and perfect for this time of year! The set above includes a base and top coat, however I wouldn't rate the top coat highly, it doesn't protect the colour for very long, but you can buy the colours individually which retail at £11 each and those I can definitely recommend!

What do you guys think? Would you be interested in trying eco-friendly nail varnish?

Thanks for reading!

New Hair!

The mop has had a chop! Having long hair in winter is too much of a hassle and I definitely fancied a change for the new year. I had my hair cut and blow dried at Rebecca H Salons in Southampton and would absolutely recommend them for price, friendliness and quality. They also do 25% student discount which is amazing! 

What do you guys think of the new look? Are any of you planning on changing up your hair style this year?

My Sustainable Sale Picks

Tis the season for giving and if you can't treat yourself at Christmas...when can you?! These are some picks that have caught my eye in the recent sales...

The gorgeous LBD from Chinti and Parker is such a wardrobe staple and a great transitional piece to re-style throughout the year. The dreamy grey pure wool coat from one my of all time favourite brands Beaumont Organic is such a perfect shape and would be the ideal addition to any winter wardrobe!

I love the sound of this Neom reed infuser scent; bluebell, guaiacwood and rose. The scent is said to instantly de-stress (exactly what I need for my final semester at University!) Inika is a brand I haven't tried before, but all products are highly pigmented and 100% vegan and organic....winner winner chicken dinner.

Finally, when I came across the Soigne sale I had to stop myself from buying everything! In fact I couldn't resist buying the nail set above, it comes with a base polish, oxblood nail polish and a top coat. That's one thing checked off my wishlist!

What items are on your sale wishlist this year?

Winter Woolens

Coat&Skirt: Old | Bag&Jumper&Boots: Thrifted | Watch: Olivia Burton | Rings: Vintage&Swarovski | Necklace: Cabbage White England

I found this jumper in a charity shop the other week for £3.99 and not only has it indulged the avid thrifter in me, it also has kept me feeling very cosy! 

I forgot how easy polo necks are to style...however, I have tried to recreate the hair trend of leaving my hair tucked into the neck of the jumper, but I end up looking like a bit of a plonker.

Any advice on how to rock the look a la Framboise Fashion ladies?

Thanks for reading!

Books Are My Bag - An Ode to the Humble Book!

BAG: Books Are My Bag designed by Tracey Emin | SHOES: Second Hand | SCARF: Vintage | WATCH: Olivia Burton | TOP: Seasalt Cornwall | SKIRT & COAT| Old 

I always enjoy having my head stuck in a book. Fiction or non-fiction, I have a hunger for learning new things, a hunger for exploring and dreaming...and the one place I can do that, no matter what time of day, no matter where I am in the world, is within the pages of a book. 

Lest we forget, the humble page turner and the cosy tea break companion. Let us celebrate the wondrous capsule to our imagination that teaches us to laugh, cry and ponder and to the shops big and small that supply them. This is my thank you letter to all books - those especially that have helped me these past few weeks in scrambling together my dissertation proposal! Books are my bag indeed!

Let me know in the comment box below your favourite book and your favourite place to read it !
