College Outfit

I have been pretty obsessed with these military style boots I got from H&M a month ago, literally OBSESSED. They remind me of boots that Kanye would wear paired with the right combo can be great. So I wore this to college and to keep is casual and keep it cool.

And heres where I got carried away (give me a spare hour and a selfie stick and ill happy) 

What can I say, I love a good ol' selfie session

Dark Green Outfit

Dark green is not a colour you automatically think 'CUTE' about but when I saw this tank from boohoo for like £6 I was like YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS. YAS.

I had to combine it with a strapless bra but apart from that YASSS

Gym Outfits

It was my new years resolution to start going to the gym and eating healthier (classic). Fast forward to last week where I had THREE burritos in one day later and you are can see I haven't really stuck to them. So me and my friend has decided to do spin class. For those of you who don't know what spin class is it is where you are on a bike with someone shouting at you to GO FASTER TURN UP THE INTENSITY C"MON YOU IN THE BACK. I couldn't walk the next day.

That being said it is a good excuse to put together some cute "gym outfits'.

Legit just got back and ate a cupcake though. Baby steps.

Feminism // Why I am a feminist

I don't usally do posts like this, well this would be my second "rant post'. I only do them about things I am passionate about, the je suis charlie and now this, feminism. I think that people still to this day don't quite grasp the concept. Feminism is about 'equality of the sexes' not one being better then the other or about men hating, it is about wanting everyone to be equal. I think it is a shame that there still are a few people that think that feminism is a bunch of aggressive women with hairy armpits who run around shouting about how unjust the world is. No. It is simply wanting the sexes to be equal. 

I feel like every single person in this world should be a feminist, Why not? Why not be a feminist? Why do some people believe that women are second and are not equal? It baffles me to see that when you type into google 'feminist' there are articles like 'why I am not a feminist', 'Feminist hate men' or 'I'm not a feminist because its to much of a label'. Now I am not one to tell anyone their opinion is wrong but I kind think they don't quite get it. Feminism isn't about only having female prime minster's or having the woman be the main bread winner of the house it is about the possibility of having a female prime minster and that both men and women can contribute equality to a household. It all about equality. Thats it, in its simplest form. 

I don't think that people should be scared to label themselves as a feminist either. I know that is has a kind of negative connotation to it (which I feel is very very wrong) but the only way to break that connotation is to make people aware of that feminism is about equality. No that females are better. 

I think that we really need to help cast that message across the world especially to places like Saudi Arabia where women can't be drive a car or vote. To get this message to the women who are getting acid thrown in there face or to places where a school girl is getting shot in the face because she said she wanted girls to get the same education as men. And if you say you are not a feminist but you agree that all these things are 'unjust' then guess what you are a feminist. 
I am happy to say I am a feminist. I am a feminist who wears a bra, shaves my armpits,wants to have children and the option to say at home and look after them, LOVES fashion and make up, loves my dad and my brother, thinks its sweet when a date holds the door open for me and does other romantic things like that. In the words of Zooey Deschanel 

"There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a fucking feminist and wear a fucking Peter Pan collar. So fucking what"

And if you don't take my word for it listen to Beyonce

Colour Block Scarf

A Scarf in Spring?!?! I know it doesn't make much sense but I promise it is a great investment, when its the awkward transition from winter to spring it can still get a bit nippy so grab a light jacket and a scarf!

The scarf I chose was from misguided but I think you can find similar ones from boohoo or asos or somewhere like that,

Super long and I love it (THATS WHAT SHE SAID)

Dungaree Outfit // Style

Where have I been?!

Sorry my little nuggets for not updating sooner but I have literally so busy, and I know what you are thinking 'it takes like two seconds to update whatevs Ella' BUT I PROMISE YOU I HAVE. But I am back so aloha my pretty lets get into it.

Dungarees are a classic look, good for days when you couldn't be bothered or days when you are feeling a lil' nostalgic. I was feeling both so I wore a barbie top with mine. Thats right barbie top.

Nice pocket to store my phone also

Why do Zara insist on having the LONGEST LABELS ?

The top says 'blonde and proud Barbie' don't know why I didn't take a photo of it. I am an idiot.

Shoe: Air Max

I Pinky promise I will update by Friday!

Lokai Bracelet

I stumbled across this site many moons ago (gah sound like one of these hipster 'i-found-it-before-it-was-cool' people) and really like the whole concept behind the Lokai bracelets but alas I had no money so the page was added to my bookmarks and forgot about, fast forward to today I spy one of these bracelets on instagram! Now I have a job and can afford one. Huzzah! So I added to cart and wait for the postman and here it is, my Lokai bracelet

They have a really nice message at Lokai, inside the little white ball is water from Everest and In the black in mud from the dead sea so that when are on top of the world you stay humble and when you are at you lows you stay hopeful. I thought it was a nice little message.

I think that it is important to remind yourself that life is full of highs and lows, it makes me appreciate what I have whist making me want to go out and get my dreams, you feel? Its nice to have a little balance in life, mine has been so busy lately but I try and spend even five minutes to appreciate it <3

H&M eagle bomber jacket

I have a new obsession, something light for the up coming spring month's and something that makes me feel slightly like Kanye West. Both are things that I enjoy incredibly.

It is this bomber I got from H&M (not currently on the website) which I picked up for £29.99

(sorry for the lack of face I went of the lash the night before and was/still am feeling rufffffff)
