Topshop Student Event.

 How amazing is this dress. Its just perfect in every way.

I love anything a bit sixties, hence why its teamed with these platformed over the knee boots, another wardrobe favorite.

This is what I wore to a work event, we had a student shop in, so here is my take on a student wardrobe for less that your bursary and the normal student diet!

I miss being a student!

Topshop Mint Cami.

Before I left the house I asked my mum if these boots matched this outfit ... she said yes ... she lied.

Next time it will be black faux leather footwear ... they just look like builder boots against the leather.

They are going to look great against denim in the autumn but just not with this skirt.

Lesson learnt.

Khaki Playsuit.

This playsuit was a purchase on mt work uniform. I just bought it because I didn't like anything else, however I have since fell in love with it. First day I wore it I got so many compliments on it, which you know, that's always nice!

I think I just never wear khaki so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it. I'd say that has changed I'd now be much more open to khaki. Its just a really nice shape too, the off the shoulder is something a little different from other playsuits.

This was the day of the Wimbledon final. So the girls in work got in the spirit and sported our tennis skirts.

I bought tis skirt some time last year, and since I am not a member of a tennis club, sometimes it can be hard to know what to wear with it, but I think I done quite well with this shirt.

Beyonce has this shirt ... I have something in common with Beyonce ...

AirSpace Fitness Classes.





On Monday night I headed to a a freestyle fitness class at Airspace in East Kilbride. 

I was invited along to try out one of their new classes, and I jumped (see what I did there) at the chance.

The fitness classes have just started at Airspace and are guaranteed to burn between 500 to 1000 calories in an hour, amazing!


If you have never been to Airspace before, the classes all run for £13 and then you pay £1.50 for these super sexy special trampoline socks. They help you grip to the tramps for better bounce.

You get to keep the socks though so you can just keep them for next time.


The class began with a warm up to stretch out all the muscles. Bouncing is more strenuous than your average work out so you need a good warm up. We stretched everything from my neck to wrists, better safe than sore.


Once the warm up is done the real fun begins. I didn't get any photos of the work out because you have to try it for yourself. 

The workout involved a series of difference jumps in 30 second to one minuet reps. 

Let me tell you 30 second job on a trampoline is much harder than you think it will be so you know it's working. 

10 minuets on the trampolines is the equivalent to 30 minuets of running. 
FACT. 


I have been out of the gym for a few weeks so doing this workout was a brutal way to get back in the game. 

But I loved it!

The class I attended was a Free Style fitness class with instructor/personal trainer Liam ... Who kicked my ass.


Classes are £13 and run 
Monday To Sunday
9am - 10am
10am - 11am
7pm - 8pm
8pm - 9pm

with a variety of fitness levels.

To book in all you have to do is book in online or call.

All info here

Airspace have also recently launched 
SPACE ACADEMY!
Trampoline Coaching to teach you how to bounce like a pro!
Again lessons are £13 and range from beginner to intermediate.

Thank you so much to the Airspace team and my instructor Liam for having me along! 
I had a blast and I want to leave my job to work at Airspace. 

It's awesome!

Kiehls Glasgow.

I have had a week of fun blog events this week!

On Friday night I was off to Kiehls with the girls for a night of beauty, booze and catch ups!

The event was held in the Kiehls Buchanan Street store in celebration of The Merchant City Festival: Fashion Cultures. 
 



The store was absolutely packed with guests enjoying performances from Pin Up dancers  and whiskey cocktails, it's not a party until there is whiskey.

There was also a photo booth competition to win loads from local brands and stores. Photo booths are always a great idea, I love them!







This is the first event I have been to with Kiehls but they had a really good idea for giving out their goodie bags! It's was basically like a raffle, you got 3 different tickets and you took each ticket to a different area and you got something different from each brand taking part. I loved this, it was like Christmas! But it was great for getting to speak to all the brands one on one, you got to speak to them in Depth about what they were up to and what's happening in the future, rather than just a general speech. I though it was a genius idea! And loads of fun too!  







I hope this won't be my last Kiehls event because it was loads of fun, one of the best events I've been to in a while. Everyone involved should be very proud! 

Well done; Kiehls, Only, Sweaty Betty, Dower and Hall and everyone involved on such a great night!

I really love these trousers, I really hope I can fit them into my autumn wardrobe. There are oranges and browns in them so I'm thinking if I stick with darker colours on top then they wont look to summery. 

If they do then worse case, they can come back out to play next summer.

This skirt will never leave my wardrobe. It is hands down my favorite skirt I have ever owned and I wear it to death.

I feel like this outfit has a Spanish vibe with this off the should ruffle top. 

It was the week before my holiday so I was in complete "I want to be in Spain right now" mode.

Back after a long break! 

I had actually written up 10 days worth of posts on the plane to my holidays but, I have somehow deleted them ... Absolute nightmare.

This must have been worn on one of our mildly sunny days in Glasgow.

This lace dress has been a dream, so wearable with loads and I think in autumn with lots of faux fur, faux leather and floppy hats, it will still do the job!

Topshop Iridescent Skirt.

Its finally pay week and the sequined skirt was the first thing on my hit list!
It is so heavy from all the sequins and it makes a jingle noise when you walk. I just love it! The iridescent sequins give off the most amazing colours. Its such a great party piece but you can dress it up or down as much as you want. I have it here with all white but it would look great with pastels or even black if you want a more rocky vibe.

Stay tuned it will be making A LOT of appearances on the blog!

Topshop Lace Collar Dress.

 I know this probably isn't a look you would usually do, lace white dress with black boots, but the dress has that 60s feel so I thought it would be OK with the boots. 

I really like black and white, I'm a bit of a mono maniac.

Topshop X Blow.

Last week Topshop Personal Shopping hit the road and headed out to the West End of Glasgow to the amazing #Blow salon in Finnieston!

Topshop took over the windows with the latest summer trend style inspo!


The Topshop Personal Shopping #Blow Takeover blogger event was held over the weekend in #Blow.

First up was a Blogger preview event.

The blogger night was held on the Thursday night, all the bloggers headed along to #Blow for a night of catch ups, amazing Gusto canapes, some booze from magners and #Blow's very first braid bar!

The stylists were braiding away our hair in all these amazing braids, there were hair rings, purple hair extensions, flower crowns! It was so much fun and braiding is going to be huge as we move into festival season.

After everyone had a catch up and had their braids done, Topshop Personal Shopper Alice McColm gave a summer trend talk. Showing us all the amazing summer pieces available at Topshop.

 


 


 
 

On the Saturday #Blow and the braid bar were open to the public. Again guests enjoyed the #Blow braid bar and drinks from Mangers and Vodquila ... if you haven't seen it before get on Instagram, I didn't think vodka could be any better until I saw this!

There were also Personal Shopping talks throughout the day to get everyone summer ready!

Thank you very much to all the lovely staff at #Blow for having us!
I had a blast and I can't wait to come in for my Pre Benicassim Braids!
