Lifestyle Loves #1.

I'm starting a new little series today, a sort of take on the video version of 'Non Beauty Favourites'. Seeming I can't manage to keep up with Youtube I thought it was about time I did a written version of it, and so was born, Lifestyle Loves. An original name, I know.

( 01. Peep Toe Block Heels* - New Look, £22.99 | 02. Scallop Mini Bag - ASOS, old | 03. Amande Candle - Diptyque | 04. #Girlboss - Sophia Amoruso, £10.50 | 05. Sweet & Salty Popcorn - Propercorn )

The weather has been pretty hit and miss the last couple of weeks, so I've been living in my standard uniform of black jeans and a striped breton tee. To jazz it up a bit I've been seriously loving these New Look heels; they're sort of classic looking with a bit of an edge, and as they're from the wide feet range they fit me perfectly too, hurrah! They're so comfortable to walk in, they've been worn a lot this summer with dresses as well, but I know I can take them into Autumn too, although perhaps not Winter with that peep toe! They're a bit more exciting than the standard flat sandal I seemed to be living in before these came along. I'm having a bit of a thing for small bags at the moment but the only one I really own is this little one from ASOS I got last year, so I definitely need to add more to the collection. I love my Zara tote but most of the time I just can't be fussed carrying anything around except my purse, phone and a lipstick.

I finally got around to finishing #Girlboss and I really enjoyed reading it. I can tell it's going to be one of those that sits on my bedside table and I can pick up whenever I'm feeling a bit of a slump with work or blogging. There's been a couple new favourites in terms of TV, the first being American Horror Story which Kane and I managed to absolutely blitz through all three seasons in two weeks. It's not too scary, it's more creepy and with lots of plot twists that always keep you guessing, plus a fabulous female cast, especially in season three. Another programme I've been enjoying incredibly surprisingly, as I've never even bothered to give it a watch, is The Great British Bake Off. Yep, I know, I'm probably the only person ever to have only watched a couple of episodes, and I thought it wouldn't be my thing at all, but there's something about Mary Berry, Mel & Sue (less of Mr. Hollywood) and seeing so many gorgeous baked goods that has drawn me in. 

What are some of your current lifestyle favourites?

  6. Books written by successful women are totally my thing this year. I find myself just eating up their personal stories and words of wisdom much more than I am thrillers, love stories, whatever.

    American Horror Story is brilliant! I'm always happy to hear someone else is getting into it. I'm on a mission to get back into Orange is the New Black this fall.


  7. I'm so tempted to pick up girlboss, perfect for those days when a bit of inspiration is much needed! xo
