What to wear to a summer wedding in collaboration with Kurt Geiger. 


Summer is here and the wedding season is in full swing, but finding the perfect outfit that is appropriate for the church and for hitting the dance floor later on after can be tough. You need a dress that makes you look super hot, but also doesn't steal the show from the bride, whilst also needing a pair of comfy and killer heels.

Did someone, me, say comfy killer heels? I think we all know there is only one brand that ticks both boxes; Kurt Geiger. If I could pick I would stay in my Kurt Geigers all year now, it didn't even feel like I was wearing high heels - comfy soles for comfort, yesss!

I have linked below my favourite Kurt Geiger Kurt Geiger shoes for the perfect wedding season; scroll through because I've also added some flats!

Dos and don'ts of wedding guest outfits


This, of course, depends on the wedding invitation. Every wedding is different and some have themes that require the guests to dress accordingly. If however, this is a (let's call it normal, without trying to sound rude, no clue how else to describe it - sorry) normal wedding then you will need that typical wedding dress outfit.

There are a few do/don'ts and the last thing anyone wants to do is to upset the bride and groom on their special day.

Do:

- wear colour.

- wear print; florals or anything is always a great idea, as you can clearly see in my photos.

- head accessories; hats or fascinators are perfect for weddings.

- cover up's are important for a colder evening, but add some flare with them to your outfit and pick some funky stuff.

- Dress up your favourite skirt or blouse by adding different pieces. A midi skirt in combination with a blouse can be gorgeous.

- Don't like heels? That's cool, come in flats if needed. Just pick a more dressed up flat shoe to make it wedding appropriate and maybe leave the trainers in your wardrobe.

- Try suits, a well-fitting suit can look super hot. 


Don'ts:

- Don't show too much skin, dress appropriately. In the sense that you don't want to flash anyone and make sure your outfit is church suitable because they can have strict rules.

- Black is okay these days, but don't do head-to-toe. Brighten it up with some bolder colours or add some white if possible for a monochrome look.

- effortlessly chic is cool super trendy, but don't take it too far. Don't look like you've just gotten out of bed.

- don't wear white.

Girly Night in by myself with the Panasonic 4K TV Range. 

My boyfriend is away for a week and I, therefore, decided to dedicate an evening to myself and watch my favourite TV shows, drink wine and eat a few too many sweets - the perfect night in by yourself right? But to make it perfect you need the best; the Panasonic 4K TV Range, but more to that below. 

I'm a big believer in having some quality time alone for so many amazing reasons; firstly because you can recharge, secondly, you will appreciate spending time with others more and lastly you can reflect on past situations or life in general. A lot of people associate being alone with negative traits, but once you enjoy being by yourself you can grow as a person.

'Being alone & actually sitting with our own thoughts can lead to such growth and realisations that are rare in our everyday busy lives' - Kourtney Kardashian


5 reasons why being alone is amazing:

1. Recharging; being surrounded by others can drain your energy. I'm not saying it's bad to always be around people, but sometimes having a night to yourself can do wonders.

2. Reflect; having a moment to yourself can be rare for certain people because of their lifestyle or jobs. However, when one has the opportunity, take it. Being alone gives you time to reflect on your current life, past situations and upcoming occasions.

3. Appreciation of company; I don't know about you guys but I really appreciate it when I see my friends after a day of working alone at home. With the job I do, I sometimes spend hours in the room writing and taking photos by myself, but that also means I really appreciate once I'm surrounded by friends and family again.

4. You can do what you want/like; being around others always calls for compromises. However, doing stuff alone means you can watch what you want, eat and do whatever you feel like doing - no need for compromising.

5. Just you and no one else; I think we all know that relationships require work. This is any kind of relationship, whether it's work related or your partner at home. But a happy relationship is all about keeping each other happy and that can be tiring at times, so having a moment to yourself means you will only have to worry and think about yourself.

The Panasonic 4K TV Range 


Staying in and eating sweets all night, whilst watching one movie after another is fun - can't lie about that. But what really makes the experience so great is the device you watch the films on. I think we all know size matters (wink wink), but so does the quality. We all want the best of the best and in this case, the best is the Panasonic 4K TV Range. Why settle for anything less if you can watch Zac Efron, "In the Lucky one" on the best screen possible allowing for a high-resolution Mr Handsome Efron?

It's not just guys who are after the best Televisions, but also us girls. 'cause ya know, we wanna watch Zac Efron or Robbie Williams in HD, right?? ;)

Blogging 101: How To Teach Others To Take Your Photos. 

One of the biggest challenges as a fashion blogger is to have high-quality photos. Platforms such as Instagram would be lost without them and this blog post would be anything but exciting to read; visual content is what pulls everything together. But not everyone has access to a photographer all the time or even at all and therefore need to find alternatives. Alternatives like your friends, family or even your boyfriend (who has probably never used a camera before). 

Desperation is high when you need those photos; I once even asked my 9-year old sister to take a photo of me. Few minutes later, bit of direction and I had a Instagram worthy photo. So get yourself a cup of tea and be prepared for some ultimate tips that can teach anyone to take good photos of you.

Before you can teach anyone to take photos of you it's important that you understand your camera and know how it works. A photography course isn't necessary, but some one-to-one sessions with your camera and maybe some YouTube videos will be just fine. Go out and explore your city with your camera and get to know all the features. Once you've completed that you can start to teach others to take your blog photos.


1. Try out, test and experiment
What I always do with my boyfriend is to make him stand where I will be and take a photo of him of how I want my photo taken. I will then show him the photo as an example and hope he can recreate it.

That test photo also helps with knowing what the lighting is like and if the background is okay - nothing more annoying than taking 2000 photos and you then realise that they are all too dark or there is a dog in the background doing it's business.


2. Manual vs Automatic Focus
When I take photos myself I will always take them with the manual focus. However, when I ask someone else to take photos of me I will always switch to automatic. For someone who doesn't use a camera on a regular basis the manual focus can be a bit tricky and there is nothing more annoying than unsharp photos - bad lighting could be fixed, but a blurry face in a photo is for the trash.


3. The multiple photo optionEvery camera has it and it can be a lifesaver when it comes to taking action photos, doing those hair flips or trying to capture a perfect walking one. I often just let my friends click away whilst I do my thing and with the multiple photo option it's also much easier. I personally love candid photos and the ones that show a bit of movement instead of me just standing there, posing away.


4. There is no such thing as a quick photo
You are on the way to the cinema or have dinner reservations and fancy a quick photo - Well, there is no such thing as a quick photo. Especially not when the one taking them isn't that great at taking photos. Not everyone can just pick up a camera and take excellent photos, it takes time and practice.

Make sure to leave earlier if you do want that photo because if not it's just gonna end up in a disaster and a probably a argument.


5. Tell them what you wantThe person taking the photo won't know what to do if you don't tell them. Give them directions into what angle you want or tell them to come closer for a close-up shoot. Be polite and don't shout at them or get annoyed if they don't get the photo you want immediately. Whenever they take a photo I will say what I like and what could be done better, like a higher or lower angle or maybe from a different side. Like that they 'learn' and understand better what you want.

Embroidered Denim with MissPap - pink on pink. 

Summer is here and it's brought to us a new trend; embroidery - embroidery bags, shoes, tops, skirts and so much more. As you all know from my latest post I'm all about denim skirts this season so it comes to no surprise that I picked a embroidered denim skirt from MissPap's latest summer collection. I styled it with an off-the-shoulder ruffled blouse and my favourite mules - my favourite summer combo!

What will you pick?

How to wear the embroidered Trend

This season is all about embroidery and designers certainly didn't hold back. Marchesa, Gucci and Alexander McQueen showed us how to do it - from extreme embellished jackets to detailed accessories and embroidered mules. It's a trend for anyone and works from day to night.

- Pick a white shirt with embroidery detail and wear it casual with some mum jeans and trainers or mules for that model off-duty look.
- Style a pair of embroidered jeans with a casual tee and a blazer for a chic but casual look; maybe wear it with a pair of cool trainers or even with embroidered mules
- embroidery tops and high-waisted jeans = perfection
- add embroidered accessories such as bags to up your style game 
-denim skirt with a cute top, like I did
- embroidered denim jackets are so in trend, with a cool top and jeans they can make for the perfect day to night combo by changing from flats to heels

The Denim Skirt - The must-have summer piece this season. 

If you are going to buy one denim piece this summer make it the Denim Skirt. The allrounder is having a comeback this year and is the season's favourite clothing piece that is perfect for effortless and chic styling. 

You can wear it with a blouse, crop top, heels or sneakers and always look stylish. It's the kind of piece that can be worn to the beach or for a shopping trip with the girls, in a midi or shot version or with embroidery. It's the kind of item we should all have in our wardrobe this summer.

You can find all my favourite denim skirts in the gallery below, which one will you pick?

The perfect Denim Skirt

If you are like me and love effortless dressing you will love the Denim Skirt Trend. So give your cutoffs a break, look through your old draws and dig out that denim skirt from a few years ago. But style it up a bit, add some pearls or cut it off at the end for a fringed hem.

Blue is not even a requirement, why not shop a grey or white one? Or go full out and get a red denim skirt. For those super adventurous ones try a midi or maxi skirt, they look super cool and will sure as hell make you stand out! 

I mean, Denim is never not on trend, right?
