Hello June!

So it’s the beginning of the month June & so far it’s been rather sunny and wonderful, so I thought I would do a little post about June so far! 🙂 I have been happily sunbathing with my partner and also just spending some time working on my blog, although I have a little bit of writers block at the moment 😦 I have great ideas but just can’t seem to concentrate enough to write posts, which sucks! I am sure it’ll all get back to normal soon and I’ll be happily posting constantly again 🙂 Anyway happy June everyone! 😀

The 30 Day Crunch Challenge

So I decided to attempt the 30 day crunch challenge, something which has been circulating the internet for some time now and after reading reviews from celebrities and other girls saying it worked I thought I might as well give it a go!

Crunches are basically sit ups and this is to tone and build your stomach muscles, something which I particularly want to do in preparation for Summer. So I will attach the picture below for the amount of crunches you need to do each day, I am currently on day 3 so tomorrow is my day of rest luckily! But I can definitely feel it working already, my tummy muscles are starting to get tighter and I can see a change as well in before I started and 3 days in already.

Lately I feel as if I need and want to get fitter so I spent ages trying to find something, I didn’t want to diet or do some crazy detox so I think for now I will stick with exercise which is always good and healthy. So I will let you know how I am progressing with that (or if I give up!) and hopefully after day 30 I will have a toned tum! 😀

Where Have I Been Hiding & Journey To Be A Fashion Journalist Updates!

ieiert  gregf

Hey Everyone!

So as you may have realized I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do and that’s because I have had quite a hectic but positive week! For those of you that follow my blog for updates on my journey to become a fashion journalist, well I have some little updates for you! Firstly I am now writing for another two new magazines who have a large readership so that’s quite exciting, not to mention one of the magazines is also American which is a great way for me to expand my experience in journalism and magazines globally.

So now I write for 4 magazines, some on a weekly basis and others on a monthly basis which is fine by me as I love writing and the flexibility fits in great with my life! So my fashion and journalism experience is adding up now so I made a mini list so you can see what I have accomplished this month:

  • Becoming a Fashion Ambassador for Fashion156.com
  • Writing for another British based magazine
  • Writing for an American based magazine
  • I have done my first ever model photo shoot in 1960’s and 1980’s vintage clothing
  • Completed lots of promotional exchanges with many online stores

Well moving on, I have finished my first year of University a week ago and traveled home for Summer break so I have been catching up with my family back in North London so I haven’t been posting much! But now I am starting to post more often, so bare with me guys! 🙂

I have been reading endless Vogue and ELLE magazines lately, I never use to buy them because they were quite pricey but now I am just starting to read them and I love the content. I also went into my local library and I found the March Issue of Vogue for 30p! So I brought that as it was a bargain.Image

Beverly Hills Formula Total Breathe Whitening Toothpaste Mini Review

When I saw my mum yesterday she gave me this – Beverly Hills Formula toothpaste and I decided to do a little review on it as it is something that I have seen many times in the shops but been unsure whether to buy it as many toothpastes as you know will promise whiter teeth in a unimaginable time span! So when my mum brought me it I decided to give it a go and here is my little mini review on it…

lkj

The box brightly states whiter teeth in ONE MINUTE, yes that’s right ONE minute! How is this possible you ask?!?! Well if you read the back of the box it says that if you leave the toothpaste on your teeth for one minute it will be more effective once brushing, so if you’re like me and desire those pearly celebrity whites then you’ll try anything! I left it on last night for the suggested time and then brushed my teeth and obviously there is no change straight away but I’m hoping that after a week or so I’ll see some sort of results 🙂

The paste itself is not overpowering like many other brands and gives subtle minty hint to your breathe which is always good with a toothpaste unless you like the extra strong minty smell then this one probably is not the brand for you. I’ll let you know the results in a week whether there is any improvements! 🙂

Vintage Clothing? Yes Please! – UpStaged Vintage in Leeds

In the heart of the voluminous and vibrant city of Leeds lies a beautiful shop full to the brim of vintage clothing from the 40’s right through until the late 80’s. I love this shop because of the sense of nostalgia and antique about it! So after emailing they kindly agreed to let me use some of their professional pictures so I could do a review about some of their brilliantly beautiful pieces of clothing! 🙂

I love this American Indian jumper/dress! It’s called the ‘Navaho Design Jumper’ and I love how it looks so inviting and warm, yet comfortable and vintage all at the same time. The patterning is bright and eye catching which is always a great aspect of a popular fashion piece, I also enjoy the thrills at the end and the fact it can be worn both as a dress or a jumper and can be combined with leggings or tights to create the individual look you want.

This next one comes from their 60’s range and is called the ‘Bronze Organza Prom Dress’ and I love it! The patterning and material seem to match perfectly and the colour is perfectly flattering, this is a wonderful choice of dress for anyone looking to accentuate their figure.

Lastly I really do adore this dress it’s so colourful and spontaneous! The dress itself is called ‘Pink and Black Velvet Flock Prom Dress’, personally I love the vibrant patterning and clash of colours that go so well and it goes perfectly with tights and the right pair of shoes! This shop has really impressed me with their vintage and unique range of clothing from the nostalgic era’s and I’m more than pleased to write a review for these fabulous pieces of clothing! I suggest to everyone that they take a look inside their shop before everything sells out! 🙂

Check out their website here: www.upstagedleeds.co.uk or visit: No.1 White Cloth Hall, Leeds LS2 7DA.

3 day outfit choices: Dungarees, Floral vest and Blue silk shirt.

Okay so the weather here has been relatively sunny, if you’re reading this from abroad I live in United Kingdom in West Yorkshire. I previously lived in North London where sunshine was a common occurrence but moving up north the weather seems more unreliable and more wetter & colder! So lately this past week or so it has been mild and sunny for a change and has given me the chance to bust out some of my favourite Spring and Summer clothes! I decided I would share my outfits for the next three days with you guys because I love them 🙂

My first piece outfit is some beautifully cute dungarees I got from New Look last summer, they are baby blue and white stripes with pink roses on. I personally fell in love with them because it makes a change from the generic plain dungarees that everyone wears and jazzes them up a bit. I think the colours are perfect for Spring and Summer and I usually wear it with a vest or t-shirt underneath! 🙂
My second outfit is based around this really cute flower top, it’s made of this silk like material and is covered in lovely white flowers with go perfectly with the blue. I generally wear this top with a pair of skinny jeans and some accessories to give the easy but classy look 🙂
My final piece is a purple floral vest that I love! I love this vest because it’s perfect for when the weather is getting warmer because the material is so loose fitting and comfortable. It goes well with cardigans, jeans and skirts I’ve found and it’s a nice change from a plain vest.

Well that’s what I am planning to wear the next three days! Hope you liked that little insight 🙂 Follow/Like.
