Vintage Fun.

Boohoo jeans// Boohoo tee // Vinatage shirt // Nike trainers 

Finally getting back into the swing of things now that summer is well and truly over. With college, along with everything else starting back up for everyone one now, I'll be figuring out a routine in the coming weeks so that I can keep posting regularly enough. Incorporating some lifestyle posts here and there, style inspirations of the moment and maybe even more frequent "what I eat in a day" posts are most definitely on my agenda.

For this outfit though my aim was to mix a street/sports luxe kind of look with a very refined vintage look. I think it worked out fairly well! If I had loose jogger pants or suitable tracksuit bottoms I would totally pair them with this look for a more focused sports x vintage look but I guess the jeans kind of tone it down slightly.

What's your favorite way of jazzing up a casual outfit?

What I eat in a day || hclf


So seen as September is often known as the 'month of new beginnings' I decided to include a bit of a more lifestyle post as opposed to the usual 'outfit of the day' kind of posts. Recently I switched up my diet completely.I try to maintain a high carb low fat diet. It's been a gradual process but for the last 2 months I've gone fully vegan, prior to this I had gotten rid of meat and dairy,milk in particular since January. This whole change was mainly for skin reasons but also because I came to realise that there is no need to drink it, any nutrients that are in it can be gotten from another, more natural source. Considering it's not natural for us to drink it and also considering that we're the only species who drinks the milk of another, which is bizarre if you think about it.. But that's another story, I may end up doing a more detailed post on this lifestyle but for now I'll just include these photos of a typical day for me! 

Each day I drink a litre of water before having breakfast mainly because I'm pretty thirsty! Occasionally I put lemon in it but not always. Regardless my aim each day is to drink at least 3 litres of water! After chugging this back I usually go for a 45 minute run, on and off of course! 

Smoothie bowls are my new favourite thing. They're super filling and will curb any sweet tooth for sure! This one has 5 bananas and a bunch of frozen mango blended with coconut milk with nectarines and chia seeds to top. 5 bananas might seem like a lot but when they're blended you don't notice and this is just how many it takes for me to feel full and satisfied. One of the best things about 
this lifestyle is that you can eat as much as you like! 

Baked potato salad with sweet chilly sauce. I had 2 apples and a pear alongside this too! 

Veggie stir fry is one of my faves. I added sweet chilli sauce to this too along with lots of spices and rice noodles.

Till next time!

So it's finally upon us, the very last of the holiday series and evidently, the very very last of summer. That said I am, as usual, looking forward to autumn/fall fashion. With denim on denim, geometric patterns, stripes and textures seen all over the runways and on the high street alike, I'm excited to see what the fall of 2015 has to offer and of course 2016. (wow, times really are a flyin'..) 

Before I get ahead of myself with the excitement of the future, I'll get back to the post at heart! So this was our final night, and this is one of my favorite outfits purely for its comfort and well it is all black...The skirt was a Primark bargain ages ago and the bralet is from some random shop on Henry Street. As one of the best locations of the holiday, and possibly of all time, I think these shots are some of the best. With the sun setting in the background and the general holiday,chilled vibe of the area, I will 100% be returning to these villas for future holidays and I'm sure to Portugal but for now it's time to getting ready for college life!
