OOTD: Summer Is Coming.


Hello again, time for a little OOTD. Okay so technically this wasn't today but actually last week but a girl has been busy! 
So, last weekend I travelled down to Peterborough and then to Sittingbourne for Sam's Gran's 80th birthday. This was my first time meeting them all properly and it ended up being such a lovely weekend.
The weather was bloody boiling!
Don't get me wrong, I love it when it's sunny like everyone else but being a pale Scottish lass, the heat was not my friend. You know what is my friend though? Sunscreen and lots of it.

So here is one of my outfits from the weekend:

Hat: H&M
Sunglasses: Stall in Brighton
Top: Primark
Necklace: Accessorize
Bangles: Primark, Wear Eponymous, H&M
Skirt: River Island
Shoes: Primark

I must say I did like this outfit but the skirt was pretty heavy so wasn't probably the best thing to wear when it's roasting outfit. I'm going to be on the look out for some light long skirts for summer. If you have any recommendations let me know!

Whilst down there, I got some photos taken with a very nice fancy camera. It made a lovely change from my usual iPhone photos:

I really need to start saving up for a decent camera, it makes such a difference. So like the skirt, if anyone knows of any good camera, do let me know! I'm a bit clueless when it comes to stuff like that.

So apologies this was a fairly short post, I shall be planning a little post all about the amazing Wear Eponymous Blogger Campaign during the week. So keep your eyes peeled!

Till the next time!

Wear Eponymous Blogger Shoot (Behind the scenes)


So most of you know about this but in case you've missed my constant talking about it, last Saturday, myself and 3 other amazing bloggers got the chance to model and style for the new Wear Eponymous campaign. To say this was a fantastic experience is an understatement.  If anything I am still in shock over being picked for such a thing. I've only been blogging since January and I'm still (slowly) getting to grips with it all. So it was such a confidence boost to get picked. I must be doing something right... yeah?

So on Saturday the 10th, I got the chance to meet the amazing team behind Wear Eponymous along with some incredibly lovely fellow bloggers. 
Who you should all check out: KerryJustBeautyThe Likely Lady & Soph-istication

Now for any of you who haven't heard of Wear Eponymous (get following them on Twitter & Facebook) they are a brilliant Glasgow based company made up of the lovely Laura, Elaine & Alan. They provide luxury but affordable fashion as well as promoting emerging designers. Basically in a nut shell, they are pretty damn great and you should check them out. Plus they have been amazing at getting us bloggers and fashion lovers involved with their twitter parties.

Which brings us to this shoot!

From that twitter party, alot of people suggested the idea of doing a bloggers based photoshoot for the #WeStyle campaign. So that's exactly what they did!

Now, I'm not going to give too much away here as the big reveal shall be next week but I'm going to share with you some behind the scenes pictures to wet your appetite.  
Once it's launched, I shall do another little blog to show you all the amazing work everyone had put into this.

But before that, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Wear Eponymous team for getting us involved like this. It was an amazing day and I wont forget it in a hurry. Also the other bloggers were beyond lovely and it was a great experience to get to meet them.  Plus, I'm sure you will all agree, they looked amazing!

So here are some little sneak peeks from the day, enjoy:

Also big shoutout to my amazing beautiful friend Samantha Hall. She was an absolute diamond on the day and really helped out with taking photos and distracting me from my nerves!

I can't wait for you all to see the finished product, thanks for reading!

Till next time

New Dresses and Good News.

Happy times ahead.

Why hello there. Time for a little blog post. 
So after going on about how I have far too many clothes and I need a big clear out before getting new stuff, well.... I've still yet to shift alot of my stuff and I ended up buying two new dresses. Silly Emily!

Now, I have such a love/hate relationship with Primark. I go in and find so much that I love but more often or not, nothing ever seems to fit me properly. Still, when I'm on the hunt for a dress, I end up in there. To my surprise the two dresses that took my fancy, actually worked for me. Who knew?!
I feel like I've been in a slight style rut for the last couple of years. I am someone who just adores a little tea dress or something with a peter pan collar, and pretty much anything black but I just feel like I need to branch out more with different styles. So this first dress was a little baby step into trying something new.

For me the big thing about this dress is the fact it's actually colourful! Now, I was going to say how much it was but being the big dafty that I am, I actually can't remember but it's good old primark so it wasn't that much at all. I just love the little pineapple print all over and the shape of it. It will be such a nice dress for summer and I love how easily you can dress it up or down. 

I ended up wearing this at the weekend. My little brother and his girlfriend are going travelling around Asia for two months (I'm crazy jealous by the way). So we all went out for some goodbye drinks, so it gave me the chance to give this dress a whirl!

The weather wasn't upto much, so I teamed it up with some black tights and a mini cardi/bolero sort of thing. Again all from Primark. I also added in this belt, which is actually one of my favourites and I think it came from an old dress of mine!

Now before I go onto the second dress, I also decided to try something else out. When it comes to my choice of lipstick, I'm a sucker for red. Recently I've branched out a little more with dark purple which I am just loving but it's not really a summer shade. So, I picked up a wonderful little pink number from Barry M

And I really like it. It's such a change for me but I think it brightens up this moody face of mine.
 So moving on to the second dress I purchased:

I posted this on instagram and people seem to really like this it. I can see why, it is pretty damn adorable. I just fell in love with the 50's vibe to it. Being a slightly curvy girl, I feel so comfortable in shapes like this. I also just love this shade of blue. I can't wait for the sun to come out so I can wear this around town with some big Jackie O sunglasses and a floppy hat.

Now, as some of you may know, the wonderful people at Wear Eponymous recently had a twitter party to ask their followers on what we would like to see in their new campaign. The feedback they got was fantastic. To top it off, they announced that they would have blogger and fans model for it. How amazing?!
All you had to do was email them with your details and write why you think you should be apart of this. I just couldn't not apply for something like that. I'm no model but experiences like this don't come often. So I applied and noticed tons of other girls going for it too. I had myself pretty convinced that I didn't stand a chance. I've only been blogging since January and some of these girls had amazing looks and amazing blogs.


I got picked!!!!

I can hardly believe it. The minute I got that email, I did a little dance around the living room.
So this Saturday, myself and some other amazing bloggers will be heading to their studios in Glasgow. We also will get a sneak peek of what we shall be wearing and get to style it up. Words cannot describe how excited and grateful I am to have been picked. I can't wait to meet everyone.

I've been a big fan of Wear Eponymous since I started my blog. The way they get involved with everyone on twitter and do parties and competition like this is just so refreshing. I can't recommended them more, so check them out:

 So till the next time!
