OOTD | A Day Trip

OOTD White Dress Anna Smith Bag

As you all know from my previous OOTD post, I mentioned I'm a fan of the comfy and casual style. I actually bought this white dress this week from New Look and I think it's gorgeous! I was umming and ahing over it for a long time due to the price tag, but I'm really glad I decided to get it in the end. It's a floral embroidered skater dress, and is actually the first white dress I own so I'm very pleased.

This outfit is something I would wear if I were going out for the day, and I'd also pop on a cardigan as an extra layer and I think it would even look cute with a belt around the waist. The Anna Smith bag courtesy of LYDC London, is perfectly sized to take on my adventures as it fits everything I could ever need to take with me on my travels.

Have you got any day trips planned this summer?

Primark Haul

Crazyblondegal Primark Haul Fashion Summer 2014

I thought I'd try my hand at YouTube again, but this time I actually gave talking a go. I was so ridiculously nervous that I didn't say as much as I wanted to about each item, but I've filmed more since this video and I'm feeling a lot more relaxed about it. So for now, if you wish to see my far from perfect talky video, I've popped it below! I didn't think to take a picture for the thumbnail, so instead I present you with this super sexy face -

Blogger Business Cards

Over the past couple of months, I've seen a lot of bloggers asking these questions more and more, 'what are blogger business cards, what do I put on them, and where can I get them from?' So I'm going to try and answer your questions today! Business cards are used to expand your audience, or simply given out to remind someone of who you are and what you're about. These can either be created from pre-designed business cards, or you can choose to create a custom one.

The Barry M Matte Topcoat Test

Barry M Matte Topcoat Test Challenge Nail Polish Varnish

Today's post is a review with a twist, as I'll be putting the Barry M matte topcoat to the test against various nail polishes. The idea behind this topcoat is that you simply apply the colour polish you desire, then finish off with a layer of matte topcoat, which in theory should then give a matte effect. So the question is, did it work?

Baker Days Letterbox Cake

Baker Days Crazyblondegal Chocolate Icing Cake

Today's post is about cake, and personally I don't know anyone that doesn't like cake! Being a self confessed junk-food eater, this review is right down my alley. This cake in particular is from Baker Days, which is a company that caters to anybody's cake needs for any occasion such as birthdays, celebrations or even humour cakes! If you're struggling for a gift idea, or are too busy to pop down to the shops to pick up a prezzie, you can simply order a pre-made designed cake or even a custom one, to be sent to your friend's house right through their letterbox.

First YouTube Video - My Everyday Makeup Routine

Since writing a post about whether to start YouTube or not, I've had some amazing feedback. You were so were supportive and suggested I start making some videos, so guess what? I did! Now I know it's not perfect, and I've got a long way to go but it was really fun to make and edit. Below is my everyday makeup routine video (looking back on it, I need to practice applying eyeshadow more), I hope you like it!


I'm not confident enough yet to speak on camera, but maybe that will come in time. For now I hope you enjoy my little video! It would mean the world to me if you could subscribe and support me, and hopefully I will be able to start uploading on a regular basis.

Style Lux Blackhead Killer Peel Off Face Mask

Style Lux Blackhead Killer Peel Off Face Mask Packet

I was sent an interesting product to review from Style Lux called 'Black Head Killer' (5 pack*), quite a fierce name I must say! The mask itself looks like an industrial black paste with the consistency of icing, and I found it quite hard to move around my face. That being said, there was more than enough product in the sachet to cover my face. The instructions on the back of the packet were really simple and precise, "After 10 minutes drying, gently peel off the mask. Cleanse with warm water. Apply a delicious face moisturizer'. Although it is straight to the point, I do wish it were more in depth as this was my first time using a peel-off face mask.

T-shirt - Christopher Kane*
Trousers - New Look
Bag - Primark
Hat - Peacocks

Ever since I did my first OOTD post, I've been dying to do another. We've had some hit and miss weather lately (switching between dull one minute, then sunny the next!) so I decided to go for comfortable clothes, consisting of a super soft cotton and cashmere Christopher Kane lace print tee, my blue skinny jeans from New Look and a pair of sandals I've had for goodness knows how long! I can't remember where I bought them from, but I've actually had them so long that the colour of the sole has actually rubbed away.

I'm a pretty simple gal, you won't often find me all glammed up with jewellery and such unless it's for a night out or big event, as especially during the day I prefer comfy clothes. This outfit is just so cosy and casual that I'm in no rush to change out of them in a hurry. I think that the lace print 'flower' on the top is very appropriate for this time of the year, and by the end of the day I really liked having one side of the T-shirt tucked into my skinnies (last photo). I'm not the most stylish girl in the world, but one day I'll get there.
