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.

Don’t you hate walking home early on Sunday mornings? You know those morning after the night before kinda days where you should really be tucked up in bed trying to cure your hangover.
I wore this a couple of weeks ago on my walk home from a house party. I like this outfit because it’s stylish and edgy but comfy aswell. For this outfit I’m wearing an old over sized ‘Washington’ hoodie, ripped jeans, a red leather jacket, some black boots and a I wore checkered T underneath.
Jeans: I cut these myself they’re Boyfriend jeans from Matalan. (You can get a pair similar already cut on Missguided)
Leather Jacket: George Asda
Hoodie: GHBAN Leather jackets always give me a 1950’s punk rock, bikers vibe, though they always seem to make revivals in fashion. I think leather jackets can really give any outfit a more edgy and fashionable tone. Leathers are staple peices in fashion.
See, I knew I’d be leaving the house looking like a hot mess so…..I made that if anyone saw me at least my outfit would look cool.
As you can see I made a McDonalds stop on the way home! Anyway, follow my socials to keep in the loop. (Halloween update on Monday)

It’s finally here! Put away your shorts and your tank tops, it’s time for your mom jeans and oversized jumpers. I love when it gets to this time of year, the new jackets, Starbucks bringing back pumpkin spice lattes and Costa’s hot brownie hot chocolates. Giant cups of Yorkshire tea, warm jumpers and the excuse to stay in all day and watch Netflix seems more attainable because its raining- Just me who feels bad staying in on a hot day because the Suns out but the idea of another season Dexter seems more thrilling then sweating and paying for slushies.
It wasn’t a cold day, but it wasn’t warm either the weather was good. I chose to wear a cut off shoulder top from Matalan and my Dungarees from New Look paired with a pair of old Chuck Taylors. My hair was in a low bun with two strands left out at the front, like a half up- half down look. I did a smokey eye with the Maybline The Nudes palette and was wearing a shiny pinkish lip gloss from Templespa, I’m not sure what the shade is.
Both Topshop and New Look have got some good clothes in store and online for the Autumn/ Winter looks but if you’re looking for something a little bit cheaper. I stopped in at Primark and Matalan, they both have a good range of fall clothes.
Top: Matalan Ribbed Cold Shoulder Jumper
Dungarees: Light Blue Denim Dungarees (Couldn’t find my exact dungarees online but I found some similar ripped knee ones)
Converse: Chuck Taylor All Star Classics
Okay, I know I that I said I’d be doing more Fashion Week looks and I will but school and coursework are my priority right now but I’ll get on it as soon as I can. New post will be up soon, if you want to be kept in the loop follow my socials! -K
