Biker Vest and Espadrilles

 Vest and Dress- Mr.Price//Bag and Shoes-Witchery
Don't you just love it, when something you're unsure about completely changes your mind and becomes a favourite item of yours? That's exactly what happened with this faux leather biker vest. I bought it on a whim, and had no idea what I was going to wear it with. That is until this t-shirt dress came into my life...I love how the two paired together. The flowy feeling of the loose dress paired with the oversized fit of the biker vest is so gorgeous. I'm completely obsessed with the vest now, and couldn't imagine not possessing it, it's now a firm favourite!! 

Have a lovely day everyone!!

Red Checkered Skirt

 Skirt, Pumps, Crop Top- Mr.Price
I'm in love with the '50's' style of this skirt! The flared fit, and pretty pattern make it such a lovely piece to own, besides anything with pockets is a plus in my eyes! For this look, I paired it with a simple white cropped top. I like how the silhouette of the flared skirt, matched the tighter fit of the crop- it gave the outfit such a lovely feminine shape.
 I finished off the look with some white patent loafers. 

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

I finally got the chance to wear these amazing sneakers!! I'm obsessed with them! 
I paired this lovely cropped knit and blouse (yay for two in ones!) and some ripped, distressed boyfriend jeans with the sneakers for a laid back, casual outfit. I absolutely love the colour of this knit, the blush pink is definitely a favourite of mine for Summer. It's so beautiful! 

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

2 Quick and Easy Halloween Recipes

 I'm not the best baker in the world, so when I see recipes that anyone can do, with some added shortcuts and help, I definitely seize the opportunity to get creative in the kitchen! 
And what better time to get that baker hat on, than a special occasion like halloween? 
That's why I decided to make these simple recipes: No Bake Cheesecake and Chocolate Brownies.

-25 digestive/tennis biscuits
-150g melted butter
-2 tablespoons sugar
-675g cream cheese
1 1/2 tins condensed milk
-1/2 cup lemon juice
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-Halloween decorations (I used a chocolate button with spiders on)
-Icing pen to decorate

 -Crush biscuits in a large ziploc bag with a rolling pin until crumbs are very fine. 
- Add the melted butter and sugar and stir well to combine
-Place a square piece of wax paper in a springform pan, to make the cheesecake easy to remove once it's set. Press biscuit mixture firmly into the pan and smooth it until flat.
-chill the biscuit base in the fridge for 10-15 minutes
- Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth, and beat in the condensed milk a little at a time. 
-Add lemon juice and vanilla and mix well. 
-Pour the cream cheese filling on to the base and smooth with a spoon/spatula. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 12 hours.
-Decorate with the icing pen and chocolate button.
And now, literally the easiest recipe to make. 

-A box of your favourite store bought chocolate brownie mix
-A bag of marshmallows
-Oreo Cookies

-1 cup powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1-2 tablespoons milk
(Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk one tablespoon at a time until it can spread. It will set slightly as it sits)

-Mix and bake brownies as per instruction
-Optional: Crush oreo cookies and add to brownie mix before baking.
-Once brownies have cooled in the pan, pour the icing mixture over, and place marshmallows on top.
(Tip: dot each marshmallows' underside with a bit of icing to make it stick)
You can also decorate the marshmallows using an icing pen, or toothpick, like I did to add some fun! 
Enjoy!! :) 
Hope you enjoyed this post! It's so different to what I usually do, but it's so fun to make and even better to eat!

Have a great day everyone!!

Striped Peplum Jacket

 Peplum Jacket-Mr.Price//Bag-Michael Kors//Shoes-Trenery
I bought this striped peplum jacket last year, and today marks its first appearance this summer. I love simple outfits (as you know!) and so for this look, I paired it with some plain black skinny jeans and my slip on brogues (aren't they gorgeous?). It's a great outfit for those days when you're running around doing errands, or even meeting someone for a coffee's simple yet chic!! 

 Have a lovely day everyone!!

Daisy Printed Skort

Skort-Factorie//Espadrilles-Country Road//Bag-Michael Kors
On a recent trip to the mall, I stumbled upon this lovely skort. I fell in love with the daisy print and the soft fabric,  and immediately added it to my basket (along with a few more skort's in different patterns). 
I've always loved a skort, the practical back and the pretty front is just stunning. You can't go wrong! 
For this outfit, I paired it with a grey v-neck tee and these awesome espadrilles, they're a favourite of mine for summer!! 

 Have a lovely day everyone!!
