How I Lost 4 Stone

I haven’t written a blogpost in a while as I’ve been working in Ibiza over the summer, but I thought I would kickstart my blog back off with my most requested post, how I managed to lose 4 stone in just over one year.

My 22nd Birthday

I'm pretty sure we all know how much I love to celebrate my birthday, so I thought I'd show you some of the outfits I wore throughout the celebrations.



T-shirt - Missguided
Jeans - Primark
Jacket - Zara
Trainers - Converse



On the day before my birthday, me and Mum went into Nottingham for a bit of food and shopping. We went to Zizzi's for lunch (and devoured the cheese fondue), and then we went to The Hockley Arts Club for a cocktail. It was so lovely in there and they had a room upstairs with lots of pink flowers which definitely matched my outfit. 

I also finally got to try the doughnuts from 'Doughnotts' and they did not disappoint, the Kinder Bueno one was to die for. We had such a good food day.





T-Shirt - Missguided
Skirt - Primark
Hat - Primark
Shoes - Kurt Geiger

My mum woke me up on my birthday by playing Taylor Swift '22', which I then continued to sing for the rest of the day. We then went out for another meal to celebrate - can you tell that all my birthday celebrations seem to revolve around food?

Here's the outfit I wore - which wasn't a great idea as after eating my burger my skirt became rather tight. I'm really loving this t-shirt from Missguided and my new skirt from Primark, even if it doesn't seem to stretch much. 

I've also wanted one of these baker boy hats for a while but I wasn't sure if one would suit me, so I was so happy when I saw one in Primark for £4 and I actually really like it. I paired the outfit with my new Gucci handbag too which I am totes in love with.







Dress - Missguided
Earrings - Topshop
Shoes - River Island

Then in the evening me and my sister India went out in Nottingham, and my mum bought me birthday balloons again - this time they were rose gold which I was so excited about.

Obviously I had to wear an all pink outfit, so I wore this number from Missguided which is actually really comfy despite being vinyl. My birthday cake even matched my outfit too!

I also treated myself to some gorgeous tasseled earrings from Topshop which were £10. I took them off towards the end of the night and was so gutted when I got home and only found one left in my bag, I must have dropped the other one. 

They're not available on the Topshop website but I got them from the Nottingham store, and I honestly think I'm going to have to buy myself another pair because I love them so much.

We went to Revolucion De Cuba which I loved and then we went to a club called Ink too before my feet were killing me and we decided to come home (I'm so not used to wearing heels).

I had such a lovely birthday and I'm sad that that's it now for another year, although I definitely dragged the celebrations out for long enough.

Now that I'm back from Ibiza I have quite a few more blog posts lined up so keep an eye out for those, and let me know if you have any other suggestions.


Thanks for reading,

SUMMER VIBES

Headband - Primark
Top - Primark
Mom Jeans - Primark
Shoes - Converse

Here we have an ALL Primark outfit from me - does that really surprise you? I swear, Primark is my life and just recently they have so much amazing stuff in, I really have to refrain from buying everything I see. I couldn't not buy this top though - it was only £3, and it fits so well and is so comfortable. I really hope they bring out some more colours because I think it'll be so good for the summer - they had a white one in store but they had no sizes left. The headband I'm wearing was only £1.50 and I got it in a burgundy colour as well, I think it goes really well with the Mom jeans I bought from there too. I've been after a pair of blue Mom jeans for so long but they've never fitted me right before, I've recently been losing weight and I tried them on the other day and now they do fit so I decided to treat myself!

I can't remember if I've mentioned it on my blog before (or you may have noticed from the photos) but I've been in the process of losing weight for just under a year now, and I've lost about 3 and a half stone so far. I am planning on doing a blogpost detailing how I did it and what I've been eating once I reach my target weight, but do let me know if that's something you'd be interested in and if you have any questions!

Thanks for reading <3

PINK AND MESH

Mesh Top - New Look
Bra - Primark
Skirt - New Look





These pictures were taken a few weeks ago, but I still love the outfit and I've been obsessed with anything mesh for a while (and will my love for pink ever fade?) This leather skirt is so versatile and New Look do it in so many colours - I already have the black and the grey as well. Primark's lingerie game at the minute is incredible as well, I'm so in love with this bra but I've also bought so many bodysuits from there recently as well. 

This mesh top from New Look also has pearls on the front which you might not be able to see properly, but it was the last one they had left in the store and I think it's so cute, it was only about £12 too. Pink is such a trend this Spring/Summer, which makes me so happy as the majority of my wardrobe is pink anyway so at least I won't have to buy anything new (not that that will stop me lol). What's your favourite Spring trend this year? <3


Mwah!

GINGHAM

Dress - Primark

Hello dolls, long time no speak, I really have let third year get the better of me but I thought I'd write a little post today to show you all this amazing dress I snapped up from Primark because I'm absolutely in love with it. I've seen loads of bloggers wearing it and I visited Primark 3 times before they brought my size back in stock - it was so worth the wait though! It was only £12 and I know I'm going to get so much wear out of it. I'm absolutely loving the gingham trend, I'm having to stop myself from buying everything gingham that's out at the minute because I loooove it all, I'm sure my bank account won't though...

Stick with me over the next few weeks as I'm finishing writing up my dissertation and I also have exams after that as well, but I do have some blogposts planned for when I'm finished. If you're interested in seeing what I'm up to more regularly then make sure you're following me on Instagram!

Thanks for reading and being patient with me!

MY GUIDE TO BARCELONA

I feel like everybody is going to Barcelona at the moment, and after visiting, I can really see why. It's definitely one of my favourite cities, the city itself is so beautiful and full of amazing architecture, and the fact that there's a beach right next to it as well is a winner in my book. I visited Barcelona at the end of June/beginning of July for five days with my friends from university, and we had the most amazing time! 



PARKLIFE FESTIVAL

Hello dolls! I know, I know, it's been so long since I last wrote a blogpost. I've literally been having the best (and craziest) summer of my life! I've been away altogether for about six weeks, so the blog has had to take a backseat for a while. But now I'm back, and I want to fill you all in on everything I've been doing before I get back to my final year at university. At the beginning of summer I went to Parklife festival, it feels like it was so long ago now but I thought I'd show you some pictures and my outfits from the weekend!
