STYLIGHT Your Wardrobe

I love a good bit o' fashion inspiration (I am a regular updater on WIWT and stalker admirer on LOOKBOOK) so when I was approached by STYLIGHT, I was made up! 

This nifty website not only acts a shopping fashion finder, collaborating some of the hottest and biggest brands around (and yes, they offer free delivery too!) but, it's also a platform for sharing trends too.

So how does it work you ask? 
(Follow the VR) 

Signing Up - Head to the log in tab in the top right and follow the directions - it really is that simple and takes just minutes.

Getting Started - Give some loving to your profile by adding a photo, your location and a short bio. You can also go and heart a few fashionable people whilst your at it too.

Getting Serious - Here's where the fun really starts. Head on over to the clothing section to increase that ever growing lust list, go spy some of the latest fashion trends on your fellow Stylight's boards or get creative and make a statement by cooking up your own board. 

Still not sure? Here's one of mine...

Note: You can add videos, captions and music to your boards...pretty snazzy!

All Yours - It's over to you now. Whether you are like me and will use Stylight to hunt out fashion inspiration or if you are one of the uber fashionable creative bunch who will use it to set trends, with this shopping/sharing platform the possibilities really are endless!

You can find me under VanityRail. So go on, let's share the fashion love!

Consciously Collecting

H&Ms Conscious Collection hit the fashion world big time a few months ago and I'm surprised it's taken me this long to blog about it. I've been admiring the CC from a far for some time now and so inevitably the time has come for me to spread the word!

With an all round impressive collection,  H&M have truly out done themselves. Pieces are not only easy on the eye but good for the environment too. That sounds like a win-win situation to me!

Here are some of my favourite pieces:

Impressed by their new collection I headed to H&M to bag some goodies of my own:

Kimono/Oversized Jacket
(Crop Top - H&M / Disco Pants - Daisy Street)

Oversized Cross Dress
(Belt & Heels - Primark)

VR Round Up 26.05.13

*Fast & Furious 6 *Work Wear *Favourite *Post Party
*Peak District *Bro & Mojito *Balcony Living *Marvellous Chocolate 

Oh Brother - My two older brothers came to visit my flat for the first time this weekend which was really lovely (although they seemed to quickly consume all unoccupied space and fill my flat with copious amount of junk food).

Unfortunately, our fun was cut short due to a silly attempt by one of my brothers to cross a river in the Peaks swinging on just a branch...he landed himself (literally!) in A&E. 

+ Banking on it - A pretty lovely week and weekend all round spent mostly lounging around in the sun, drinking and eating (and picking up a few bargains from H& to come!) I hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday weekend and takes full advantage of their day off tomorrow.

Take Me Away

A month tomorrow I am jetting off to Turkey and I could not be more excited! I am big on travel and so the fact I have not been anywhere since mid last year is killing me.

In a bid not to spend my entire wages on a holiday wardrobe (considering I am only going away for a week) I have pulled together some of my most favourite holiday pictures from the last few years to keep me preoccupied. Enjoy!


Where are you heading this summer?

VR Round Up 19.05.13

*Oreo and Chocolate Cake *Dominoes Treat 
*Saturday Morning *Ballin' *Sunday Run *Celebrations

+ Treasure Hunt - Sadly I had to work through my boyfriends birthday on Thursday but cunningly I set up a mix of hidden notes and presents around the flat (and Sheffield) to keep him occupied before I returned in the evening to gorge on cake, cider and dominoes!

+ In The Country - Down on the Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire countryside borderline this weekend to visit my boyfriends family and continue his birthday celebrations. Being a city girl, I always find it hard to adjust to the quiet, easygoing lifestyle of those in the country but there is something relaxing/calming about moving to a slower pace of life (even if it is just for the weekend). Fortunately, one of my good friends also lives close by so we spent Saturday drinking coffee, attempting failing to play Basketball and generally being silly.

Seven Days of Summer

Last week I took part in the Tesco 'Seven Days of Summer' competition via WIWT.
The week started off well but as my workload, among other things, increased my time to plan/take photos of outfits decreased. But hey, I gave it a shot (even if I did forget to post my photo on Accessories day...oops!) and every entry is in for a chance of winning £500 gift voucher so fingers crossed! 

Day 1: Stripes

Day 2: Florals

Day 3: Accessories

Day 4: Sixties

Day 5: Pastels

Day 6: Embellished

Day 7: Prints

Whilst I'm on the topic of F&F, look at this awesome maroon wrap dress I picked up for £16!!
