Saturday With The Gals

​If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that a few weekends ago me and a couple friends did the ceremonial burning of the books and revision we used throughout the year. 


It was just me and about 5 other friends sat in someone’s back garden reminiscing over the final years of school, the good, the band and all the weird mixed emotions in between.  We spent majority of the night just talking and sharing memories while burning away the books that got us through our GCSEs and essentially all the knowledge that we learned in the two years leading up to the exams. 


The outfit I was wearing was stylish yet casual enough for a one off night with my friends. The top was a one off charity shop buys that I got my mom to crop and hem to give it that 90’s look. You can get cropped shirts with cool prints/strips like mine at Chinese Laundry, they’ve got two shops that I know of one based in Hull and the other in York so if you were thinking of purchasing a cropped shirt, I’d suggest them or other vintage shops on your area. Chinese Laundry have a website as well so if you want to see what else they’ve got going on here’s the link (www.chinese-laundry.co.uk) The jeans I think I’ve mentioned in another blog post were Riley jeans from Matalan that I cut myself, but were originally inspired by Caitlin Heath on Instagram (caitlinheathxo) who bought a pair of already ripped jeans from Missguided, so if you don’t want to rip them yourself you can get them from there.

12 Fav Instagram Accounts 

Hey! I don’t know if it’s just more or if you’ve all been Instagram obsessed lately? We all love a good scroll every now and then, to check what our favourite celebs have been up to and give our friends some moral on their pics but lately the temptation to both check and post regularly on the gram has got the best of me. Here are a few of my favourite Instagram pages, you should check them out. 

1.@Iamtherodzilla 

Krystal Rodriguez, works for The Book Agency

I found Krystal through Lottie Tomlinson and Lou Teasdale. I fell in love with her Instagram this year, she has he most colourful Instagram I’ve seen in a while full of vacation pictures from her wedding and her time abroad. She’s honestly just one of the most beautiful women I’ve seen, not just in looks but as she presents herself on the gram she seems to be fun- loving and care free which are traits I admire and look up too. I believe she’s some sort of manager or runs the the Book Chanel as a business women, they have an Instagram page (@beautymeetsvideo) which works with Makeup artists within the UK.

Danielle Peazer. Blogger, YouTuber and dancer. 

I must’ve followed Danielle Peazer back in 2012/13ish time and I’ve kind of sporadically kept up to date with her over the years through both Twitter And Instagram. Her insta is very travel and fitness based which I adore because she’s always giving advice on skincare routines, fitness ideas, fitness clothing brands and stuff like that which I enjoy popping up on my time line every now and then.

3.aliencreature 

She’s an artist and designer.

Alien Creature popped up on my discover in around 2015 and I’ve been obsessed ever since! She has the most amazing theme on her Instagram, it’s so aesthetically pleasing in an artsy way and I love it. Her Instagram mostly consists of her own art, plants, indie clothing and the books she’s reading so if you’re down for that hit her up with a follow. She collabed with a website called Odd Molly and they sell all sorts of clothes from dresses to tops as well as interior things like duvets and art, she’s made drawing pads that are available on the website.

Shay Mitchell. Dancer, blogger,model and actress. 

If you didn’t know Shay Mitchell plays Emily Fields on the CBS show Pretty Little Liars which is probably what she’s best known for. Shays Instagram is always filled with travel pics, pizza, work and fashion ideas, inspirational quotes and pizza….Did I mention that twice? She’s such a free- spirit and you can tell just be scrolling through her feed, she’s all about the different experiences. Besides being in PLL, she’s stared in Mothers Day and also has a YouTube channel and a blog with her bestie Michaela.

5.@nyane

Nyané Lebajao a model, blogger and designer based in Germany. 

 Nyané’s Instagram is always slaying, she’s got that quite feminine girly yet chic style that everyone adores. Recently she’s opened up her own website which relates to a lot of the style she posts on Instagram, her hair is a big thing on insta and she’s been changing the colours quite a lot and not sticking to the pink theme that she had going for a while but venturing to purple, turquoise and cranberry which has been quite interesting. 


Website: Nyane.co

6.@weworewhat

Danielle Bernstein, beauty blogger and designer.

Danielle is a fashion icon in my eyes, she always has the latest trends and this cool New York style that I envy so much! She kind of reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in The City,  wearing designer clothes and being smart and respectable. Danielle also just released a new collection of her second skin overalls, that are to die for.

7.@kararosemarshall

Kara Rose Marshall, model from Hull currently based in London.

Kara Rose Marshall Instagram is so indie, which is probably why I fell in love with her. Her style is a mixture of modern chic and the indie which is very Londony but also a mix of leather jackets, flared jeans, band- tees which is all very rock n roll 90’s era and I just want to be best friends so I can raid her wardrobe. 


8.@orionvanessa

Orion Carloto, writer, poet and YouTuber.

I’ve only recently got into Orion’s Instagram through my friend liking a friend of hers (Wesley Tucker). She’s got one of those nice to look at white and nude themes that are quite artsy and clean but it relates a lot to her poetry. If you’re a secret poetry nerd like me, then use definitely check her Instagram out of her website.

9.@radiantbambi

Ash Soto, beauty influencer on Instagram and body artist.

Ash is such a beautiful person, I read an article someone posted about her and basically at 12 she got a rare skin condition called vitiligo where you get white patches of discolouration on the skin. At a young age, that probably wasn’t the easiest thing to deal with and kids are mean so she must’ve been through a lot as a kid but as an adult she’s managed to transfer her energy into something good and is regularly on Instagram talking about body positivity and highlighting the fact that you can be beautiful no matter your body type or appearance. 



10.@djtigerlily

Tiger Lily, Australian DJ and influencer

Tiger is a DJ, who travels around different places in Australia to play her music in nigh clubs. She also regularly updates on her fitness regime and posts helpful advice and meal ideas for Vegans on her page. 



11.@justinemaebiticon

Justine Biticon. Model and influencer. 

I found Justine on Twitter just after she got signed to Ford Models and she’s one of the most happy go lucky people but she’s also kind of Twitter geeky.



12.@felecityhayward

Felecity Hayward ‘plus-sized’ model and designer. 

Felecity Hayward is a a beautiful beautiful person, who is also a model with Milk Management. Her Instagram mainly consists of the adventures her modelling life brings to her and where she gets to travel and the different types of photo shoots she gets to do. She’s also brought out a body posi range of T’s called Self Love Brings Beauty. (insta: @self.loves.brings.beauty)

Summer Time Ball 

Hey, guys I’m back and will be updating more regularly! I’ve got a few pre-written blog posts that I’m going to post so keep your eyes peeled! Here’s the first one from the 10th of June where I attended Summer Time Ball at Wembley Stadium. 
So this Saturday was Capitals Summer Time Ball with Vodafone, which was the perfect break between my first and second set of exams. I’ve been to Summer Time Ball 3 years in a row, this being my 3rd year and Capital never disappoints! 


This year it was just two of us who managed to make our way up to London on coach to see all the amazing acts that Vodafone and Capital were able to get lined up to perform this year. The headliner being Bruno Mars, who was incredible and performed songs from his new album 24k Magic and a few old songs like ‘When Was Your Man’! He was insane and definitely got the crowd hyped with his jazzy shoulder pops and his energy. There were so many amazing performers like Shawn Mendes, Stormzy, Zara Larsson, Little Mix, Rag ‘n Bone Man and Liam Payne just to name a few. I have to say my favourite act had to be Dua Lipa, she has a way of holding people and her songs are fun to dance too. 


Concerts for me have always been a safe haven, a place where you go to have fun and see your favourite acts perform and be surrounded by people who are there for the exact same reason. Anyone who knows me, knows that I live for concerts just the environment of concerts and the excitement of going to see someone you’ve supported live it just brings so much light and happiness to my life. And enlight of recent events in both London and Manchester, the people at Capital dedicated it to both those attacks and the people affected by them. I have to say that this year the security really stepped up, with the scanners and pat downs and checking people’s bags as well as the police patrolling as people left the stadium to ensure everyone was safe.

Overall the Saturday was amazing and you can watch all of the acts on the Capital Website or on their SUMMERTIME BALL 2017 Playlist. To anyone who wants to go to a festival or something with different acts I recommend Summer Time Ball next year! Make sure to go onto the Capital Website and sign up to pre-sale to have a better chance at getting tickets next year.

Birthday Meal.

Recently,I turned 16-Woo! And to celebrate being legal…. to buy a lottery ticket God guys come on. I decided to invite a few friends to go for a meal the Saturday just been. 

Outfit details bellow. 

I decided to go with something a bit dressy and stylish for Nandos. The top I’m wearing is actually a jumpsuit from boohoo that I wore near the begging of the year, I just pulled a pair of jeans on over it and made it look like a top/bodysuit and no one suspected anything in fact I got quite a few compliments.

 The cardigan I borrowed from mom because it was sparkly and matched the outfit, the only downside to the borrowed cardigan was being told I looked like Harry Potter wearing the invisible cloak…..And even that wasn’t a downside, who wouldn’t want to be Harry Potter in an invisible cloak? 


Top/Jumpsuit: Boohoo 

Jeans: Primark

Caridigain: Asda George 

Favourite AMA Looks

Since I don’t really have much to update you on, I decided that I’d write a piece on my favourite red carpet looks from the AMAs and why I like them. 

Don’t forget to Follow My Bloglovin 

Ariana Grande: I.D. Sarrieri

Ariana’s simple black bralette and white trouser outfit was amazing. I love Ariana’s style anyway but I really loved this outfit and the one she wore when performing Side to Side with Nicki. She slayed that outfit, like she slayed her performance. 

Julianne Hough: Zuhair Murhad 

This outfit is so fashionable just the way that it’s so fitted  and shows off her Julianne’s curves beautifully. The colour really brought out her eyes as well, she looked stunning. 

Fifth Harmony: (Camilla Jason Rembert) 

The Fifth Harmony girls slayed the red carpet! I think that Lauren and Camillas were my favourites. Camillas because it was really simple with the leg slit but still managed to look hot. Lauren’s dress, the double leg slit and the way the top of the dress is designed looked really chic and just really fits with her general style. Really, all the girls looked amazing. 

Selena Gomez: Prada 

Selenas Prada dress looked so amazing, it was simple but elegant and really suited her well. I’ve always loved Selena’d carpet looks and was a bit sad when I heard she wasn’t going to the Amas (though I completely understood her reasoning for it) but she showed up and looked like a princess in her scarlet ball gown.

Haliee Steinfield: Elie Saab

Haliee’s romper, I think was definitely in the 2 of my favourite outfits from this red carpet. I’ve never heard of Elie Saab but I really love the romper, it’s something I’d definetly wear on a like a night out or to an event. It’s so stylish and Haliee looked wonderful.

Hannah Jeter: Zuhair Murad

Okay, this was my favourite look on the Amas carpet. The dress has insane details and even though you can see the black underwear underneath, which I know was intended it looks sophisticated and tasteful. It’s a stunning outfit and Hannah looked immense in it.

Chrissy Teigen: Yousef Akbar


I think I’m just in love with leg slits, Chrissy’s were hella high up and damn did she look incredible in the dress- when doesn’t she look incredible? This dress was another simple dress but she made it suave with the jewellery and the heels. 

Anyway these were just a few of my favourite outfits. To keep in the loop follow my socials! -K 

Halloween 

Okay it’s practically Christmas, I mean John Lewis has brought out the Christmas ad and I’m only just posting my Halloween look….oops! Anyway here it is. 

Follow My Bloglovin 

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays during the year and this #Halloweekend I was the wicked witch of the west. (Anyone who has read Dorthy Must Die knows that, all in all she isn’t all that wicked….)


Dress: Wicked Costumes 

Boots: Wynsors World Of Shoes 

“In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut” – Cady Heron, Mean Girls. (Leaving out the last bit of that sentence out bc ain’t nobody got time to hate on other girls anyway. Smh.) 

I was invited to this Halloween party about a month in advance and was ready to go all out because it’s Halloween and who doesn’t love dressing up? But me being me, I didn’t get my outfit till last minute…Oops. It wasn’t a totally disaster because I ended up getting my outfit and it was only around a £5.I thought was a bit ridiculous to pay over £20 for an outfit I most probably won’t use again- I was supposed to be going to Madrid and didn’t want to spend a lot on my Halloween outfit. (I’ll try and explain in the next post why I didn’t end up going.) The dress itself was pretty cute,besides the fact my boobs were to small for the outfit. 

We were stuck in school on Monday which was sucked! Who does that on Halloween? I  should’ve been at home watching horror movies all day but no. However, I was in the Halloween spirit and still dedicated my evening to the pagan holiday ( Atleast, I think it’s a pagan holiday?). Me and a couple of friends did a night terror walk and a fair  in the local park. The terror walk which shouldn’t have the word terror in it because it was terror-less and subpar to anything you see on Ellen 😦 but still a laugh. 

Follow my socials to keep in the loop and enjoy my HelloNoKitty look, I did for Halloween. 

Fav DKNY SS17 Looks 

Follow My Bloglovin 

I take it  many of you know Fashion Weeks are busy going on around the globe.NYFW has just finished so the pictures for each runway have been released. I’ve got about three from NYFW that I really liked and DKNY is one, I might write about the others or just do one from each fashion week. Anyway, here are my favourite looks from DKNY! 

(Model: Imaan Hamman) 

(Model: Taylor Hill) 

(Model: Bella Hadid) 

(Model: Vanessa Moody) 

(Model: Josephine Skriver) 

I really liked the DKNY runway, it showcased how inner-wear is outer-wear and kind of reminded me of Yeezy Season 1 in a more feminine and edgy way. It’s very different from the SS16 range which was more black and white colour wise whereas this has kept the natural tones but also has the dark navy blues and army greens. The models all slayed their looks and the dark makeup really complimented their looks credit to PatMcGarth for that. 


(Models left to right: Jasmine Tookes, Taylor Hill & Josephine Skriver.)

 (Models left to right: Romee Strjid, Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes & Stella Maxwell) The post show- jumpsuits were pretty sick as well! 

You can see my Fav looks on my tumblr under the tag #Favlooks which is linked. If you want to be kept in the loop follow my socials! -K 

 

Fav Emilia Wickstead SS17 Looks 

Follow My Bloglovin 

Here are a few of my favourite looks from Emilia Wickstead at London Fashion Week for SS17. I had actually never heard of Emilia before this fashion week but I saw that Diana Argon had attended the show and decided to check her out on the Elle Magazine website which is where I got the pictures from. 


The whole show gave me a 1970’s vibe which is never a bad thing. I adore the 70’s, the platform heels and the ‘hippie’ fashion was amazing. Don’t even get be started on the music-iconic! 


I love this dress, I think it’s because of the purple pastel colour. It reminds me of a romper, it’s so stylish and the under skirt is really pretty. I’m not usually one for prints or patterns but I’d definetly wear this out and about like as a summer dress because it’s girly and pretty.I also really like the first picture I put up. 

 

Overall, I love these SS17 looks from Emilia Wickstead and will definetly be keeping an eye out for her collections and her looks at future fashion weeks. 

To keep in the look follow my socials! Also if you’ve got any new or upcoming designers that you think are cool, leave me a comment and I’ll check them out.
