Travel Diaries: Lake District

Hello hello

I’ve got a little bit of a different post for you all today guys. You might be used to my usual beauty/lifestyle/fashion ramblings – but I wanted to incorporate something a little bit different into my blog. What is that you wonder? Some good old travel diaries. I have recently been LOVING reading other blogger’s travel posts.. but I always felt like because I wasn’t jetting off to the Maldives/exotic trips that my posts may be a little bit boring. But to be honest – the more posts I read – the different variations I saw… and I absolutely love the little weekend getaways to York/Brighton just as much as beach & New York holidays!

So .. getting onto my trip – over Easter me & my family spent 3 nights in the Lake District. Now – I had never stayed here before so it was a new experience for me… but let me tell you at the end of the trip I NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE. If you’ve ever taken a trip to the Lakes you will know how beautiful it is… literally the most perfect place to go if you need a few days away from a busy lifestyle.

You’ve probably heard of the popular Lakes at Windermere .. however we travelled up further north to a place called Caldbeck Fells – the hubby did a quick search on Google and found a 12 bed MANSION called Thistlewood House in the area… and seeing that every review had rated it 5 stars, we knew we had to go there (oh and yes – there was 12 of us going).

GETTING THERE

We set off at about 4pm to get there on Good Friday (we were meant to leave at noon – but rallying around 12 people trying to get them ready to leave at the same time is HARD) – and it took us around 2 and a half hours to get there from little old West Yorkshire. It might seem a little bit of a trek – but seeing the views as you drive up there is WORTH it. The house itself was literally in the middle of nowhere – I’m talking no signal guys – and there were probably around 3 other houses there (all of them just as big too)… so it’s definitely a perfect place if you want some chill time!

THE HOUSE

O.M.G. Guys .. the house. I was literally speechless when I saw it. The photos online did NOT do it justice. As we drove up there was a huge drive, gardens surrounding all sides of the house, and a field just opposite. Also .. we got a perfect view of all the little lambs with it being the perfect time of year .. MY HEART. I wanted to keep one .. seriously.

The house itself had everything you could ever need. I think I went into each room and was more and more gobsmacked each time. I want to kick myself because I didn’t get enough pictures of the inside (since everyone piled in at the same time and the house was just MANIC).

WHAT WE DID

As we arrived pretty late, the first day was just spent eating some pizza we had brought and getting settled into the house. I fell in love with the bathrooms there too.. and me & my sister made it our mission to find a Lush so we could pick up some bathbombs to use (priorities guys).

The morning after, we had a pretty chilled breakfast (the kitchen had a coffee machine, Aga, orange juice maker & ice machine – WOOP), chilled out in the gardens (where I managed to take some outfit pics), then headed out to explore the surroundings. We spent the day walking, visiting a lake & found central Carlisle (where we spotted a Lush & Costa, muahaha). We then set off back home for a BBQ & another chilled evening.

The next day, I had a Lush bath & watched some Gossip Girl (perfect start to the morning might I had) – and then me & my sister made pancakes for breakfast. FYI .. I don’t think I’ve ever made as many pancakes as I did that morning – feeding 12 people breakfast is tough. We then ventured out on a long drive to a place called Silloth which is on the coast. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and we literally experienced all four seasons whilst we were there (I’m talking hail & all that shit guys). It was still absolutely beautiful though – and I even found some coloured buildings (perfectly instagrammable) AND we had fish & chips by the sea (sat in our warm cars might I add). We then set off home & spent the evening watching TV & having plenty of tea & Easter eggs.

Our last day (boo!) was spent on a long drive through the mountains – where I spotted the dreamiest houses EVER and the most picturesque villages. We also spotted a picnic basket offering homemade scones which were an absolute TREAT and probably one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. We then spent the afternoon in South Lakes Safari Zoo which is in Cumbria, before venturing back home.

WHAT I WORE

I knew I wanted to be comfortable the whole trip.. so I literally lived in my oversized denim jacket & converse. I DID take some outfit pictures which you can take a peek at!

Overall – the trip was probably one of the best I have ever had. I would 100% go again and highly recommend you all take a trip to the Lakes if you get the chance. It is the perfect place if you want to get away from the busy-ness of everyday life and just relax. You can either spend your day in the many little villages they have, or just chill in a cottage for some peace and quiet.

So – there we have my first travel diary! I really hope you enjoyed it loves – I am visiting Amsterdam in a week (EEEEK) and will be doing a similar post for that!

Lots of Love,

Life Update … & My Favourite Purchase

Hey!

So .. I know I have been a little bit of a stranger to the blogging world recently (slap on the wrist I know!)… but I have a genuine reason .. promise. If you follow me on Twitter you would have known that a) I have started a new job recently, and b) my husband had major knee surgery last week. So… a combination of these has meant my little blog has unfortunately been pushed to the back of my mind – but hey, life gets in the way sometimes and guess what… that’s OK. It took me a while to really get that in my head because every time I didn’t take my blog/Instagram photos for that day or draft up my post, I felt guilty. But what you have to remember is that certain things in life are more important than that perfect Instagram shot or getting a post up at a certain time … I blog as a hobby, not a forced activity. So taking time out helps you realize that and for a long time I have had the mindset ‘quality over quantity’, which has really helped me because I never rush my posts and love every single one I put up.

Also … another thing that has probably led to my lack of posts is that I am getting slightly bored of the layout of my blog… but I have done some research and am actually going to (finally) self host.. AND get a whole new theme! I am also on the hunt for a new camera (yes I know I still have my £40 Samsung), but I am so torn as to whether I want a Canon or the Olympus Pen (help me!).

Phew.. that felt good to get off my chest! That is what I love about blogging .. you can literally pour your heart out on a post and instantly feel better about it.  

Now … another reason why I want another camera is because I really miss doing fashion posts… and I just feel my camera is not up to taking shots that I am happy with. When I first starting blogging, it was completely fine and I was happy with it, but now that I want to up my game slightly (eeek), I want to invest in a camera that will give me shots I will be happy with and proud to put on my blog.

Speaking of fashion posts … I HAD to share with you probably the best purchase I have made recently. A few reasons why I love it.. it’s velvet, it’s black, it’s over-sized, and… it cost me £2.50 (!!)

sam_5442

sam_5464

sam_5465

This the reason I love charity shops so much … you can literally pick up some of the nicest, most unique things ever. As I was trawling the rails, I spotted this little velvet beauty and just fell in love. Velvet is absolutely huge this season… both for clothes and accessories… in fact I have velvet ankle boots on my wishlist because I just NEED them. There is something so luxe about velvet .. it is honestly one of my most favourite things to wear!

sam_5455

sam_5450

Sometimes velvet can be seen as something that is worn mostly for evenings out… but I wanted to show you that paired with the right things, you can rock velvet during the day. In fact.. I’ve been nice enough to come up with some helpful tips:

  • Wear something over-sized (over-sized tops, swing dress etc) I think it’s best to save the body-con stuff for the evenings guys (although if you feel like you want to rock it.. you go girl.. fashion is all about personal preference and being unique)
  • Make it casual by wearing it with some black jeans/trousers and boots/trainers
  • Try mixing up textures … velvet and knitwear are gorgeous together… especially if you have a velvet dress with an over-sized cardigan (ultimate Autumn outfit goals)
  • Velvet blazers are so easy to style and go with so much (a lot more than you would think!)
  • Personally.. my favourite colours in velvet are black, burgundy and forest green. What are yours?
  • If you want to incorporate a little bit of velvet, get your hands on some loafers/boots or a bag

So guys ..there are some of my tips for  wearing velvet … I really want to pick up some more velvet things and show you how easy it is to style them up!

Top – Charity Shop
Trousers – H&M
Trainers – Topshop

sam_5447

I went for a really casual look and just love how comfortable this whole outfit was. The only thing I WISHED I had was a metallic backpack … I feel like that would have just completed the outfit SO well (I can imagine right).

I know I’d definitely be able to take this look into the evening by pairing it with some heeled boots and a bold lip (perfect!)

Right girls and boys … I think I have rambled on enough .. I hope you enjoyed my little life update and also tips on bringing some velvet into your wardrobe! I am off to watch Friends and cuddle up with my poorly hubby! I will see you all in my next one!

Lots Of Love,

Autumn Essentials: Beauty, Fashion & Makeup

Hiya loves

Hope you have all had an amazing weekend! I have spent it catching up on ironing (exciting I know), going to see the Blackpool Illuminations (a tradition me and my family have), and taking some Autumn inspired outfit pictures (which you guys will see soon!). What have you all been up to?

Now.. I am sure you all know I was ready for Autumn WAY before it was acceptable (I am talking end of August guys)… but I think now is an appropriate time to do an Autumn essentials post right? I got you covered for beauty, fashion and makeup… so if you want to know what my essentials are for this season… have a peek 🙂

sam_5429

sam_5418

Make Up

To me.. Autumn makeup is all about dark lips, matte skin and TONS of highlight. Basically… makeup that resembles a vampire’s is what I am talking about. And of course you know me and my drugstore OBSESSION when it comes to make up – so of course I have a whole load of my fave bits that I always have on hand for my Autumn makeup.

  • Seventeen Stay Matte Foundation

I have raved and RAVED about this foundation for so so long… it really is one to try if you need a long lasting, matte foundation that has amazing coverage. You really need the smallest amount of this, as it goes SUCH a long way. And, at a little over a fiver… it is SO affordable and is a right hidden gem too. It’s worth a try girls, so pick it up on your next trip to Boots

sam_5389

  • MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter – Pink Shimmer

Can you believe that this time last year I did not use highlight (GASP)… it is now one thing that I never miss out when doing my makeup … it makes such a HUGE difference to how healthy your skin looks. And of course.. when it comes to Autumn time, the days are getting darker, your skin is not getting as much sun anymore and can tend to look a little dull. Your best friend? Yep.. highlighter. This little baby from MUA is one of my faves.. as is is SO affordable yet has the most amazing pigmentation. This one is more pink toned, but there is also one that is more on the gold side if that is what you prefer.. but I think I much prefer more cool toned highlights for the colder months (something about them just reminds me of frost on your skin.. and I LOVE that).

sam_5388

  • Sleek Matte Me – Vino Tinto

I have done a whole post on these guys, so I will link that here… but I LOVE these so much. Dark lips and Autumn just go hand in hand (ahem… like candles and Autumn.. FULL POST on that here too guys). I adore Vino Tinto as it is the right mix of berry and dark purple… it requires a little bit of practice to get a smooth application, but with a little bit of time and a good lip liner, it gives the most gorgeous, vampy finish.

Clothes

sam_5403

  • Faux Fur

I always pull out the faux fur when the days start to get colder. Autumn is all about feeling cozy… and I like to feel snug when I am out as well as when I am inside. Having a faux fur scarf, coat or gilet means you can do EXACTLY that.. you literally feel like you have a blanket around you and I am all about that. I am one of these people that would go out in my PJ’s every single day if I could (I am not lazy.. I just like being comfy, hehe).

  • Tartan

Regardless of whether you like to follow trends or not.. I can guarantee that tartan prints (just like fur) will always be popular for Autumn. Whether that is a tartan scarf, dress or shirt… you will DEFINITELY feel Autumnal when you rock it. I picked this beautiful, ruffled top from Zara (which I have currently become obsessed with)… I have been rocking it with a grey or black top underneath and love the layered look it gives. ANOTHER thing I can start doing is LAYERING… I will probably do a whole separate post on this because I could babble on about that for ages HA.

sam_5405

  • Pinafores

Ahhhhh PINAFORES.. I am so so so glad these came back into style this year because guys they are honestly one of the EASIEST things to style, both for work and casual wear. These two beauties are the ever so popular, £10 pinafores from Primark that EVERYBODY has become obsessed with. They are a gorgeous velvet/suede.. which again is HUGE for this season, and look fab with jumpers, button up shirts or t-shirts underneath. Seriously, if you do not have a pinafore yet.. GET YOURSELF ONE.

sam_5415

Beauty

  • Lush Snow Fairy  – Shower Gel and Body Conditioner

Now this might be a little controversial because we all know Snow Fairy screams Christmas time.. but I am a LITTLE bit in love with it so I have already whipped it out and become obsessed with it ALL over again. I am sure you are familiar with the beautiful pink, candy floss scented range from Lush.. but if not and you love your sweet scents, you have to pick it up! This year.. Lush have released a Snow Fairy body conditioner which I have fallen in love with. I find it really helps prolong that lovely candyfloss scent and makes your skin feel so so soft!

sam_5431

Another essential item is of course Lush bath bombs.. but I think they deserve a post all of their own right? I will definitely do a fave bath bombs post soon.. because there are SO many  that I love… in fact I could easily talk about each and every one ha!

sam_5396

Thank you so much for reading this guys… do you have any essential items you love for Autumn time? Let me know… and I may find some new things to try too! I will see you all in my next one 🙂

Lots of Love,

Saira

Holiday Blues

Hey guys….

Muaha.. do you see what I did there with the title? Yep.. it was 2 weeks ago that I was having the best time EVER on holiday in Hisaronu, Turkey (FYI.. I have a full post all about my trip.. check it out). I am suffering from some SERIOUS holiday blues guys… I just want to be back in the sun, not worrying about work and just RELAXING! If only ey? Unfortunately, real life called and it was back to waking up at 6AM, working Monday to Friday and making the most of my weekends!

One thing I was definitely looking forward to after returning back from my holiday was getting back into blogging. As I had Ramadan, and then my holiday straight after.. my poor little blog got pushed to a side… but this break has definitely helped me feel more inspired and so much more motivated to do well with my blog and make it the best I possibly can! I always have so so many people ask me how on EARTH I manage to balance a blog, YT channel AND full time work.. and I will be honest.. it does get really tough sometimes. However.. because I see blogging as my “me-time”, I look forward to working on it after work! So.. even though I WISH I was back in Turkey.. it is nice to have a routine again!

One thing that I really missed so so much was the fashion element of my blog.. I feel like my blog has been so focused on beauty recently.. so I wanted to bring back my good ol’ OOTD’S (!!). I am SO SO excited because I recently got a tripod too so I am hoping to film some Lookbook’s on my YT channel.. let me know if you would like to see these loves!

Right.. I think I have babbled on enough .. should we get onto the actual outfit Saira?

I wanted to focus this outfit on a single item that I think is absolutely essential for the British Summer. Now.. we had a STUNNING few days of very hot weather (I felt like I was back in Turkey guys), and then you blink and it is back to cloudy, windy cold days.  Oh, the joys of British Summer (ha!). Anyway… back to my fashion essential for Summer time…

… A kimono.

SAM_5105

SAM_5115

SAM_5116

SAM_5106

I bloody love kimonos.. I am obsessed with cardigans in Autumn/Winter.. and kimonos are my alternative for the warmer months! They are just SO easy to wear.. and give your outfit that instant “boho” look to it.

I picked up this beautiful blue one from George at ASDA.. YEP YOU READ THAT RIGHT! I fell in love and knew I had to have it! The print is so stunning .. and this blue colour looks gorgeous on every skintone!

SAM_5129

I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a grey t-shirt (from where other than Primark?), some black jeggings (do I ever wear anything else), and some white loafers (another essential for Summer girls).

SAM_5138

SAM_5108

SAM_5112

Also.. you guys know I am not the biggest fan of dressing up.. I much prefer to keep things casual when I go out and have my makeup more dramatic, or switch up my accessories.. so instead of my usual day bag.. I paired the outfit with a clutch instead! I LOVE this simple clutch.. I can think of SO many outfits that it would go with.. In fact…I actually used this clutch on my registry wedding (hehe).

Details

Kimono – George @ Asda

T-Shirt – Primark

Jeggings – Zara

White Loafers – Peacocks

Sunglasses – Peacocks

Hijab – Mum’s

Clutch – LYDC* (10% anything from LYDC using the code SAIRA10)

SAM_5149

SAM_5113

Seriously guys.. for what is left of the summer (tehehe), go and get yourself a kimono… I can guarantee it will become one of your most worn items in the summer! They look stunning over dresses (both maxi and mini), skirts, shorts, jeans.. basically everything (ha).

Right guys.. I am going to love you and leave you.. wishing I was back in Hisaronu…

LOVE YOU ALL LOADS.. and I will see you all in my next post.

Lots Of Love,

Saira

Shirts & Sports Luxe

Hiya darlings!!♥

How have you all been? Hope everyone has had an absolutely amazing week so far! Can I just say though.. we are in June.. but WHERE IS THE SUN GUYS?! We had a GORGEOUS Bank Holiday weekend… then … clouds/rain. Pah. That’s British weather for you!

I am not too fussed though.. because I’M GOING ON HOLIDAY IN JULY! Woop! Literally cannot wait.. I have not been on a holiday for SO many years so it is definitely overdue! It will also be the first time me and the hubs will be going abroad too! ALSO… for those of you who don’t know… I have Ramadan coming up.. which basically is a month of fasting that all Muslims take part in every year… no eating/drinking from sunrise to sunset! As I am sure you can imagine… my blog MAY slow down just for this month… I will see how I get on to be honest.. I may stick to my regular schedule OR drop down to 1 post/video a week.. I will see how I get on.. and will keep you updated too!

ANYWAYS GUYS… I have a fashion post this time. The spring/summer has really got to my head… I have been wearing lighter colours SO MUCH RECENTLY. Those who know me know that this is not normal HA! 

SAM_4885

Now… I was inspired to do this post by this absolute STUNNER of a bag* that I got from LYDC London… For those of you who don’t know.. I am a Brand Ambassador for LYDC.. and I ADORE their bags so so much.. there is literally something for every style of bag you may want.. whether you prefer big/small bags, on trend/more classic styles, colourful/neutral… the styles they have are AMAZING! I know those of you who have read my blog for a while will know I have been a lover of this brand for SO long! 

SAM_4849

SAM_4870

SAM_4868

SAM_4859

SAM_4852

So… of course in the UK… you never REALLY pack away your winter wardrobe right? Come on guys.. we have had SNOW before in June.. I am not ruling ANYTHING out! So.. I still have my FAVE faux fur gilet that I was obsessed with in the winter lurking around my wardrobe! This little baby is SUCH an essential for those days when it might be chillier/raining to add that extra bit of warmth! Although.. I do want to get myself on some lighter, sleeveless layering pieces! But for know.. lets work with the faux fur ey?

SAM_4873

What am I doing here… HA!!

SAM_4876

SAM_4878

SAM_4883

SAM_4891

I have become OBSESSED with oversized, button down shirts recently.. they are honestly SO easy to style and are lovely and comfortable to wear in the warmer months! I actually pinched this one from my mum’s wardrobe of clothes she doesn’t wear anymore.. muaha. Raid your mum’s wardrobes girls.. you might be pleasantly suprised. Or your dad’s for that matter… there will definitely be some button up shirts in there.

SAM_4893

SAM_4894

SAM_4898

SAM_4895

Oh… yes .. it is my beloved, (slightly) boyfriend style jeans (from the one and only PRIMARK!)… I cannot even tell you how obsessed I am with these.. SO SO COMFY guys.. and they go with SO many looks. I might try and see if I can style these for an evening look.. so stay tuned for that loves!

SAM_4905

For shoes.. I wanted to keep the look effortless .. so wore my FAVOURITE loafers EVER.. these were an absolute bargain from Dorothy Perkins.. I love the shoes from there SO SO MUCH! They are also SO comfy too.. and they go with EVERYTHING! For my hijab.. I wanted to keep it basic.. so wore this cream coloured one to just tie everything together!

SAM_4923

SAM_4926

SAM_4921

Now… onto the main focus of the outfit.. the BAG! I love the black against all the light colours.. it just adds something more to the outfit.. and I think it gives it a really chic, effortless look (tehehe.. what do you guys think?). I ADORE the slouchy look of this bag too.. I usually stick to quite structured bags.. so this was a nice change! I have to say guys.. this bag fits a CRAP LOAD of stuff in.. which is always a winner for me ha! It has a gorgeous, sports luxe feel to it.. which is always a WINNER for spring/summer trends!

As always .. you can get 10% off ANYTHING from LYDC using my code “SAIRA10”

SO LOVES.. what did you think? I think this is a PERFECT daytime outfit… I will actually be doing an evening outfit featuring a similar style bag too… so keep your eyes peeled for that girlies!

What Blogging Has Taught Me♥

Hiya lovelies!!♥

HOW ARE YOU ALL ON THIS LOVELY SUNDAY MORNING! I say lovely.. the sun is out.. BUT THERE IS ICE EVERYWHERE! We are in April.. this should not be happening, ha! ANYWAY…. aside from my update on the weather.. I hope you have had an absolutely amazing week… what have you been up to? I had my first full week at work in what seems like ages.. and surprisingly it passed very quick (woop!).

So… I was having a little think of what I could blog about.. and it dawned on me that I have been blogging for around 7 months.. and I have learnt quite a fair amount (if I do say so myself, hehe) about the blogging world.. and thought it would be fun to share all of these! Now darlings.. bear in mind this is a light-hearted post (as is everything on my blog)… so grab a cuppa, and be prepared to find out what I have learnt from blogging!

Diaries/Notepads will become your most favourite/used thing EVER♥

SAM_4417

Because they make amazing blog props, they are your LIFE when it comes to planning posts/jotting down ideas… etc. ALSO.. there is nothing more satisfying than writing (with coloured pens) in your notebook, and ticking off things. BEST FEELING EVER.. I feel SO liberated when I can tick off a post I have just put up! WOO!

The hours between 6-9pm are dedicated to Twitter chats♥

Now of course.. I am sure not ALL bloggers take part in Twitter chats.. but I try to take part in AT LEAST ONE a day. They are honestly one of the BEST ways to catch up with fellow bloggers and just ramble on about different topics! So… for at least an hour a day.. I am glued to my phone.. typing away… just make sure you have it on silent because your notifications WILL GO CRAZY.. and all you will hear from people around you is “TURN THAT BLOODY PHONE OFF”. Ha.

Flat lays give you the worst back ache EVER♥

SAM_4414

BUT THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. I am a massive lover of a good old flat lay… I have recently tried REALLY hard to make my photos look as GOOD as I can.. and in the few months I have been doing this.. I heave learnt the pain that comes with getting that perfect image. Picture this guys… me in my PJ’s.. no makeup on.. hair an absolute mess.. standing on my wooden dining chair in front of the massive mirror (I do get a few stares by the way ha)… snapping away! Now.. I like to take all my photos on one day (today is actually my photo taking day).. so obviously all this bending down gives you SUCH a back ache hehe! Oh.. the things we do for a good blog photo (sigh).

Weekends/Evenings become blog orientated♥

Now the good thing for so many of us bloggers is that blogging is our little escape from the craziness/business of our daily lives.. so I LOVE to spend a few hours every weekend/evening especially for blogging. So much of my life revolves around blogging (haha.. COME ON.. fellow bloggers I KNOW you are with me on this).. almost every single beauty/fashion item HAS to featured on my blog. When I discover something AMAZING, spot a good deal or use something that bloggers have been RAVING about.. IT HAS TO BE SHARED WITH YOU ALL. That is just the way it is when you become part of the blogging world.

SO much more happens behind the photo♥

This is what you see:

SAM_4424

This is what I see

SAM_4429

Say hello to Cookie!

There is ALWAYS someone to talk to♥

I have learnt that whatever time it is… if I need an opinion on a product, some fashion tips, a recommendation OR just someone to have a giggle with… I just tweet. YOU GUYS NEVER LET ME DOWN. I am completely obsessed with Twitter, and the majority of bloggers are too.. so a CRAZY amount of time is spent on our phones!! This also means that there is always SOMEONE up to talk to.. yay!

The blogging community is SO supportive!♥

Now… I was welcomed into the blogging world SO WELL by everyone… it is honestly such an amazing community to be part of. Bloggers are always willing to help you out… and because we have SO much in common with each other.. it is SO easy to get along with everyone! I recently started a YT channel.. and the support I have had from bloggers has been absolutely INSANE!!

You can never have enough fake flowers/props♥

SAM_4419

Any cute, flowery, funky looking prop is essential… and I have got a right lovely little collection going on at the moment. I have learnt that no photo is complete without some sort of prop.. whether that is fake flowers, confetti, cute little bunnies… yep I have a little box of blog props going on! My aim for the next few weeks is to DIY a few shoe boxes to create a cute box!! Would you guys like a post on this?

Blogger Emails/Mail is the most exciting thing EVER♥

Enough said. I cannot even tell you the excitement you get when a company you love emails you/responds to you. AND DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED WHEN YOU RECEIVE BLOGGER MAIL! (I love this phrase by the way hehe).

Blogging is the best decision I ever made♥

Hands down. BEST DECISION EVER. I enjoy it so much.. I have “met” so many lovely people.. worked with some of my most FAVE brands.. and love coming home after a hard day at work and just settling down with my blog. My favourite things to do is think up different blog ideas, catching up on other blogs and spend time typing away!

So lovelies.. these are just a few things that spring to mind when I think about how my life has changed since blogging. I honestly cannot believe it has been almost 7 months since I started my blog… it really has been the best decision I have ever made! It even gave me the confidence to start a YT channel.. something that I have wanted to do for the longest time! It is SO weird to think that at one point these things meant NOTHING to me haha! 

ANYWAYS LOVES.. I hope you enjoyed reading this post.. make sure to let me know what things YOU have learnt since blogging. Have you been blogging for months, or years? SO… Lets see what the next 7 months brings us ey?!

Have a lovely Sunday darlings.. and make sure to check out my new YouTube video (that went live yesterday!).. I also cannot even believe the response that has had.. I had over 100 subscribers in less than 2 weeks! Eeeeeek!! That is thanks to all the support you amazing bunch give me.. I really do love you all *gives you all the biggest hug ever*.

Thank you SO much for reading lovelies.. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already! I will see you all in my next one!

Lots of Love,

Saira

Hey loves! It is the WEEKEND YAY!!! Have you had a good week? WHO ELSE GOT SNOW?! Yes… SNOW in March… this is definitely becoming a regular thing in the UK now ha! Snow in March, heatwaves in October…. WHAT ON EARTH IS WITH THIS BIZARRE WEATHER! I know myself and SO many other people just want it to be Spring now! Fingers crossed for some sun in the next few weeks!

So.. guess what I have today… it is an OUTFIT post.. and even better.. IT IS AN ALL BLACK ONE (ha!). Who says that just because it is March that I have to pack my black clothes away… I will STILL be wearing them in Summer hehe! As much as I am excited for the Spring weather to start… I really have been trying to make the most of my jumpers/cozy clothes before they are all packed away! Let’s have a peek below….

Now lovelies… I was rooting around my wardrobe and I came across this BEAUTIFUL jacket that I got from a Mango outlet a few years ago… and I almost KICKED myself as I had gone the WHOLE of winter without wearing it! The poor thing must have fallen off the hanger and just lived on my wardrobe floor. It honestly is such a stunning little jacket… and I was just picturing so many different outfits I could wear this with! The black/grey/white colour means it is SO versatile (yay!).. and I am in LOVE with the ‘bomber’ style of it too… I know bomber jackets are quite popular for Spring.. so HERE I AM ROCKING THE TREND EARLY wooop!

SAM_3944SAM_3893SAM_3950SAM_3953

I knew from the second I saw this jacket that my outfit would be an all black one… and you know how I LOVE being a wild child and mixing textures in outfits… so OF COURSE I wore my lace top that I picked up from a Charity shop for £2 😛. I wore my black jeggings which I honestly CANNOT be without… I LOVE that they are a lovely style that never EVER gets loose around the knees and they are so comfy! I usually pick mine up from a local market for a tenner (BARGAIN HUNTER HA!)… but I cannot WAIT to pick up a pair of Joni jeans from Topshop too! I am also going to be branching out into boyfriend style jeans (GASP.. I know.. I have been in SUCH a rut of only wearing skinnies!).. but I can just imagine SO many outfit variations with them! I will be picking up a pair from Primark … that way I do not feel AS guilty if I only end up wearing them once because I look ridiculous ha! But HEY.. I WILL TRY MY BEST to make them work…. and possibly put up a post to show YOU how to style them.. especially for us short girls out there.. GIVE ME A WAVE GIRLS.. we know the struggles right?

SAM_3913SAM_3917SAM_3873SAM_3937SAM_3894SAM_3891SAM_3938

This look was completed with some black ankle boots, my baby (well… my beautiful handbag) and DARK VAMPY LIPS! How long do you think I can get away with wearing these? I also just wore a black hijab… anything else would have just been wrong right? I also have’Sweet Sherry’ by Model’s Own* on my nails… LOVE THIS SHADE SO MUCH.. and I actually had this on my nails for a WHOLE WEEK before it started to chip!

SAM_3878SAM_3968SAM_3960

HOW TO: Work Full Time & Blog♥

Hiya loves!♥

Hope you have all had a fabulous start to the week! Mine has been VERY busy and fun .. but VERY tiring. On Monday – I got up at 4:30AM for a 5 hour coach journey to London – SO tiring but I literally loved every minute of it! I am sure you all know that I went to my first big blogging event yesterday – which you will hear ALL about later on this week lovelies.. so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for that!

I am so excited for this post – because it is definitely something that is SO personal and applicable to me, and I know SO many of you have to deal with this too – and that is…  Keeping up a blog whilst having a full time job! 

Main Picture

Now.. there are two different views that non-bloggers have of us bloggers – and they are.. “Oh, how hard can it be to take a few photos and write a few lines about make-up/clothes” – which I am sure we all know is SO NOT THE CASE.. and this comment can be SO annoying to hear haha! Then we have another.. “Wow.. how on earth do you have time to have a blog with a job etc..”.. this is definitely the question SO many people ask me! So.. perfect opportunity for a post right…… Oh come on let’s be serious ANY opportunity is perfect for a post hehe!

So.. I have been blogging for over 6 months now and usually aim for 3 posts a week… I work full time 8-5, Monday to Friday.. and think I have built up a few tips to ensure I make the most of my time – which means I am always SO happy with every single post I put up… and most importantly, that I enjoy every moment of blogging SO much!

Know Your Priorities

Obviously when you have a job.. you need to completely RULE OUT the hours you are at work and know that your time/mind must ALWAYS be in work mode. At the end of the day loves.. your job is what pays the majority of bills so work must ALWAYS come first… I know it is SO hard but make sure you have your head in the right place whilst at work, and NOT thinking about those beautiful shoes you picked up in the Topshop sale that are just WAITING to be pictured in your next outfit post. I know the struggle girls… but don’t worry – we will talk about making the most of our free time for our blog soon!

Planning

Wow.. I cannot even express to you all the IMPORTANCE of planning. I find it helps to have a “Blogging Journal” – this is my little life-saver when it comes to noting down what posts I am going to write and WHEN I am writing them/scheduling them etc. Unfortunately for us working girlies.. we cannot always think of a post and start writing it straight away.. (boo!!).. SO this is why planning is SO important. Personally, I make a note of the titles of my posts a week ahead, so I always know what I am writing for that week. I used to have a schedule for specific days and what I would post.. however this was a FAIL (haha!).. so now I just blog about whatever I want and put it up on whatever day I want! As long as I know what I am writing for the week – I am good to go!

SAM_3835

Make The Most Of Weekends

One thing that I ALWAYS do on weekends is take ALL my photos for the week ahead.. as we all know the struggles of taking pictures in RUBBISH lighting right? I like to set aside a few hours, get together all my products/blog props, find a GOOD spot and take pictures to my hearts content! ALL my outfit pictures are taken on the weekend too and I normally like to take two OOTD pictures in one go! I know SO many of you are aware of how TIME CONSUMING taking photos can be – so knowing that I have 3-4 lots of pictures ALWAYS helps when blogging! ALSO.. you can bulk write… however I am yet to do this as I much prefer writing my posts the day before I put them up.. I like my blog posts to feel like they are a conversation between myself and you lovely lot.. so if a post was written a week ago, I don’t feel like it has that “personal” touch!. HOWEVER.. it is completely up to you if you like to bulk write…It can definitely save SO much time!

Schedule Tweets

This has been an absolute LIFE-SAVER for me… I know I cannot spend my WHOLE day on Twitter.. as much as I would LOVE TO… so I always schedule tweets for when I am busy working away! This just means that all your hard work you put into your post the night before is still being seen by your lovely readers! It also means that you are not GLUED to your phone whilst you are supposed to be working hehe! My favourite programme to use is Buffer.. I definitely recommend it.. it is SO easy!

See Blogging As “Me Time”

For me.. my blog is my hobby and I absolutely LOVE coming home after a long day at work and either writing up my post, reading other blogs or editing photos! I see it as “me-time”, and I think the second you start seeing blogging as a “hassle” or a “job”.. it can start to be stressful and not enjoyable. Literally girlies.. I LOVE sitting down with a cuppa and just spending a few hours in my little blogging bubble! ALSO.. SO many Twitter chats are in the evening.. so you will be able to take part in SO many of these if you want to wind down after a long day at work! They are the BEST way to network with SO many other bloggers.. I LOVE them and have met SO many of my blogging babes through them!

SAM_3827

Do NOT Compare Yourself To Full-Time Bloggers

Remember – you have other priorities that take up your time on a daily basis – full-time bloggers can use their whole days to put time into their blog/social media/networking.. so you should never compare yourselves to them as there will be quite a difference! HOWEVER.. this is NOT to say your blog cannot be amazing.. OF COURSE IT IS… If you blog because you love it, then your blog will honestly be the best it can be.. regardless of how much time you have to put into it!

It Is OK To Have A Break

Don’t worry if it sometimes gets all too much.. if you need a break, TAKE IT! No matter how much you love your blog… if you just do not feel like blogging, DON’T DO IT. There is nothing worse than typing up a post you are just not 100% happy with, and feeling “forced” to upload it just for the sake of it. If one day… your job has just left you feeling SO tired.. take some time out. Working full time is tiring loves.. we all need time away from EVERYTHING every now and again. Have a lush bath, eat some chocolate, cry a little if you need to, get some well deserved rest.. and wake up the next morning feeling SASSY and ready to get back onto it!

So loves.. that is how I have managed to keep a blog that I am 100% happy with AND work full time too! Of course.. every blogger is different.. so I am SO open to any more tips any of you have! ALSO.. I know SO many of you are still at Uni/School AND have blogs… so I would love to know any tips you have! I also know there are SO many mummy bloggers who juggle work AND kids.. you are AMAZING.. I would LOVE to know how you manage too!! I really hope this post helped you in SOME way… make sure to let me know what you thought darlings!!

Right then angels… I still have another day off work.. before it is back for Thursday.. and then working from home on Friday… Phew! I am lucky to have had such a chilled out week .. I do SLIGHTLY miss the busy-ness of work though (I know call me crazy ha!). I cannot WAIT to put up my next post loves.. it will be ALL about my trip to London AND about the fabulous Blogger_Hangout event I went to!  I will see you there angels?!

Lots of Love,

Saira

Well hello there… how are you all guys? Hope you have been having an amazing weekend.. despite the weather being absolute POOP – it has been SO STORMY.. come on UK weather.. it’s almost March (SPRING TIME).. pull yourself together and GIVE US SOME SPRING WEATHER .. RIGHT?! I am literally ready to start wearing brogues/cute chunky sandals… what about you all?♥

Anyways.. enough of the weather… lets get RIGHT ONTO THIS OUTFIT.. I was so excited to take these outfit photos because it is featuring something I have become SO OBSESSED WITH!! If you do not already know… these are PINAFORES!! I literally saw my first one in Topshop (that burgundy cord one that EVERYONE and THEIR MUM has!!)… I fell in LOVE straight away and knew I needed to have a few in my wardrobe.. of course the staples being a denim one (featured in this outfit!!), and a black one (WHICH I PICKED UP TODAY!!!).

SAM_3630

Both of these babies are from New Look.. the denim one was 22.99, and my black one (which of course you will see in a later OOTD!!) was £17.99. Oh HEY.. if you guys have been following my blog for a while, you will know I am an ABSOLUTE creature of HABIT and if I love something, I just HAVE to have it in as many colours as possible!! SO OF COURSE.. my adorable little pinnies fall in with this .. so expect to see LOTS MORE!!

Right .. let us get on with this actual outfit then ey? Obviously with it still being BLOODY FREEZING… this little beauty just HAD to be paired with a fuzzy jumper right? Take a peek below!♥

SAM_3660SAM_3655SAM_3645SAM_3653SAM_3679

DOESN’T IT JUST TAKE YOU RIGHT BACK TO BEING YOUNG GUYS!!!♥

I just love the basic denim colour of this.. I know it is going to be SUCH A STAPLE.. if you haven’t already, make sure to check out “Denim Essentials EVERY Girl Needs” post for more ideas for outfits!! This pinnie will take me RIGHT THROUGH Spring, Summer, and back to Autumn/Winter again, wooo!

I paired it with my black jumper (WHICH kept me VERY cosy, may I add!), woolly tights and … are you ready for this… black ankle boots.. shocker right? Hehe! You honestly cannot have ENOUGH boots.. I have seen some in the Primark sale for £5-10, BUT THEY WERE NOT IN MY SIZE..  me and my size 3 feet left Primark very annoyed (grrr!). To be honest loves.. I have been OBSESSED with having a look on ASOS for shoes/clothes…. I may slowly be turning into an online shopper (GASP!).. The excitement of receiving a package IS JUST AMAZING!!

SAM_3688SAM_3692SAM_3701

Of course.. I paired the outfit with a plain hijab.. just to keep the focus on my pinnie!! My bag is my little baby from LYDC* which basically never leaves my arm!

Denim Essentials EVERY GIRL Needs♥

Hi angels!!♥

Who has had a fabulous week?! Mine has just been CRAZY BUSY AS USUAL… I feel like I have barely enough time to do the things I want.. by the time I have got myself ready for a CHILLED out evening, had my dinner and cleaned up.. it is already going on 8PM! If you are in a similar situation to me.. DO NOT WORRY LOVES.. I will be writing up a post about how I divide my time between my blog and working full time.. TRUST ME LOVELIES.. If you are dedicated enough YOU CAN DO IT without wanting to pull your hair out with stress hehe!

SO GUESS WHO HAS A FASHION POST UP TODAY WOOP WOOP! The idea of this post literally just sprung into my head as I was sorting out my wardrobe (yep – total light bulb on top of your head moment girlies)… and it is going to be all about DENIM!

SAM_3637

Now girlies.. I cannot think of a single person who does not own at least ONE denim item in their wardrobe – whether that is your FAVE pair of jeans, a denim jacket, or MY MOST FAVE THING EVER.. A DENIM PINAFORE! I thought to myself HEY.. what better post to put up than an “Essential Denim Pieces EVERY Girl Needs” one? Lets get right into it lovelies!!

Sleeveless Denim Jackets/Gilets♥

SAM_3579SAM_3588

So.. if you know me you will know how absolutely OBSESSED I am with gilets – they are my absolute ESSENTIAL item.. and I wear my fur ones ALL THE TIME.. I may as well sleep in them girls. Of course.. when the sun starts to shine, the only thing my beloved fur ones will do is make me VERY sweaty (ew)… so of course.. OUT COME MY DENIM ONES!

Why you NEED them!

They are such a fabulous layering piece (both in cold and warm months!)… and give such a gorgeous, casual vibe to any outfit. The bleached denim one looks gorgeous on summery days and adds a gorgeous, bohemian look to any outfit. The fur lined one is PERFECT for when it is colder.. you’d be surprised as to how warm it keeps you!!

Spring Outfit

Pair with a thin, knitted jumper, skater skirt, a pair of converse and a backpack!

Summer Outfit♥

Wear with a fitted top, maxi skirt and LOTS OF BANGLES  for a beautiful bohemian look!

Autumn/Winter♥

The fur lined denim gilet is PERFECT for this time of year – I LOVE pairing with HUGE comfy jumpers, knitted dressed/skirts and ankle boots!

SAM_3555

Here’s some links to my FAVE items!

Missguided Faux Fur Lined Gilet

Asos Dark Denim Denim Gilet – I LOVE THIS ONE!

Denim Shirts♥

SAM_3606

I am absolutely OBSESSED with denim shirts .. and own AT LEAST five! I was obsessed with wearing them at Uni as they were my alternative to huge cardigans in the warmer months!

Why you NEED THEM

Oh my.. you will not even believe how VERSATILE denim shirts are.. you can wear them buttoned/unbuttoned, on top of dresses or baggy t-shirts, with skirts, under dresses… the list really can go on! They also come in SO many washes, light/dark/acid wash.. and you can also get some with fancy ones with studs on too :D.

Spring Outfit

Wear unbuttoned with a t-shirt, black jeans and trainers… don’t forget the over-sized bag! PERFECT UNI OUTFIT!

Summer Outfit♥

Pair (unbuttoned) with a black and white maxi dress, a huge tan bag and sunglasses! PERFECT effortless outfit!

Autumn/Winter Outfit♥

Wear buttoned up with a structured skirt, ankle boots and a faux fur gilet on top!

SAM_2862

Here’s some links to my FAVE items!

Pull & Bear Denim Shirt

Topshop Striped Shirt

Jeans♥

SAM_3593

Now I think this one just goes without saying .. every girl MUST own a pair of jeans.. my favourite being “jegging” type jeans.. I am not a fan of how “restricted” standard jeans make me feel. I LOVE the comfort of jeggings… so of course the “Joni” & “Leigh” jeggings from Topshop are my absolute FAVOURITES.

Why you NEED THEM

Well.. I could literally just sit here ALL day about why you NEED jeans.. but I will put a few of my favourite reasons why they are just FAB.

  • You can use them as a starting piece for ANY outfit and ANY occasion
  • They can give you the most casual outfit EVER.. but also make you look sassy when paired with the right things
  • They come in SO MANY STYLES (skinnies will ALWAYS be my fave.. I am on the hunt for the perfect boyfriend jeans though!)
  • You never have to throw them out – bleach them/rip them/turn into shorts… you can do ANYTHING with a pair of jeans!

Spring Outfit

Dark wash jeans with a button up shirt, brogues and a satchel

Summer Outfit

Light wash jeans, lace top, lace up block heel sandals and an over the shoulder bag

Autumn/Winter Outfit♥

Literally ANYTHING.. but my favourite outfit is dark wash jeans, ankle boots, a HUGE jumper and an over-sized blazer/faux fur gilet

SAM_1873

Here’s some link to my FAVES!

Topshop Joni & Leigh Jeans

Denim Pinafore♥

SAM_3625

This is my most recent purchase but OH MY GOSH lovelies.. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. A pinafore is SO ON TREND at the moment.. although I did get a comment that I looked like a “farmer” (thanks to my brother.. pah what does he know about fashion ey?). It definitely took me back to when I was younger and would wear dungarees and pinafores ALL the time – now I am talking back in my nursery school days guys ha!

Why you NEED IT

THEY ARE THIS SEASONS HOTTEST TREND.. well in my opinion. They are just SO adorable and versatile girlies. You can get black/checked ones for work, and gorgeous denim/white ones for casual wear! They will also take you right back to when you were 3-5 years old and you would wear pinafores to school! Pinafores are also SO comfortable to wear .. and all you have to do is chuck on a t-shirt and some converse with it and YOU ARE READY FOR THE DAY AND YOU LOOK OH SO ADORABLE GIRLY!

SAM_3630

Spring Outfit♥

Pair a denim pinafore with a long sleeved stripy top, some brown boots and a satchel

Summer Outfit♥

Wear a white pinafore with a black t-shirt, black backpack and black sandals (& red lips of course!)

Autumn/Summer Outfit♥

Denim pinafore on top of a cosy jumper, a huge tartan scarf and black ankle boots

IMG_8380.JPG

Here’s some of my FAVES

Topshop Cord Denim Pinafore

New Look Black Pinafore

So angels.. there we have a list of denim essentials EVERY GIRL needs in her wardrobe! They are honestly staples in my wardrobe and I base SO many outfits around these pieces! I am aware I am missing a denim skater skirt and denim jacket.. I am on the lookout for the perfect ones.. My ideal denim jacket would be over-sized, bleached and with plenty of rips :P… I am thinking I may just raid the men’s section in a charity shop and attack it with my scissors (haha!).

I hope you enjoyed this post darlings… do you have any essentials in your wardrobe? What denim pieces do you ALWAYS go for? I would LOVE to know!! I will be finishing work early on Friday.. and then have a few days off WOO! These are definitely well deserved.. I so CANNOT WAIT! I am also going to the Blogger_Hangout London Fashion Week event in London on Monday which I am SO excited for!!! I will have a special post up after my trip.. so make sure to stay tuned for that!!

I will see you in my next one angels!

Lots of Love,

Saira
