WHAT TO WEAR AS WEDDING GUEST.

DRESS | BOOHOO
BARELY THERE HEELS | BOOHOO
SUNGLASSES | SIMILAR
FAUX FUR BAG | SIMILAR 



Don’t wear white, don’t wear anything too short, don’t dress too over the top… the list goes on and on when it comes to what you are ‘allowed’ to not wear to a wedding. How are you meant to get it ‘just’ right? There rules are a bit too much for me, the only ones that I would adhere to, would maybe to not wear white or anything too short, but the dressing over the top bit I’m going to have to ignore #sorrynotsorry. I LIVE for overdressing, I am and will forever be the girl who overdresses rather than underdresses.

I got this look together as I think that it would be a great spring wedding look and inspo for you all. Being the fashion rebel that I am, if I can’t wear something short, I thought it a great idea to wear something that shows some leg action instead. The dress isn’t tightly fitted, which is great if you’re going to eat all the delicious food available at the wedding, without having to worry that your food baby is on show. The long sleeves will mean that even if it get’s a little chilly out, you’re all good because you’re covered. The dress is long and oh so flattering, and wlooks perfect on all body types. I'm totally in love with the floor-sweeping silhouette and breezy look.

GREAT SHOWS TO BINGE-WATCH ON NETFLIX


Anyone who knows me really well knows my love for TV shows. I've never been a reader (even though I'd love to have been one), as I would much prefer to watch the movie/tv show version. I have a few go-to shows that I absolutely adored binge-watching to on Netflix and thought it a great idea to share these with you all.

GILMORE GIRLS: 

This show is an obsession of mine. I adored it as a teenager and I adore it even more now. I hadn't watched the show until Netflix did their re-make of it 'Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life' - with all the original actors may I add! #winning. After watching the remake (whilst crying throughout) I love how quirkly and hilarious the show was,  and I knew then that I had to watch the entire show from the beginning again. So after watching all SEVEN seasons again, I can honestly say that this show will not fail to deliver. 'Gilmore Girls' is centred around the relationship between a single mother and her daughter in a small Connecticut town - it's so sooo good!


THE GOOD WIFE:

This show is a great inspiration for women who want to be more independent and kick ass in life. It tells the story of Alicia Florrick, a housewife and stay at home mum, who has to step up and be the breadwinner after her husband, a Chicago District Attorney is sent to prison by going back to work as a lawyer after a decade away. We get to witness her journey from being a fragile housewife, to a respected lawyer who doesn't back down and knows how to hold her own. What I love about this show, besides Alicia's storyline, is that it gives you inspiration and is extremely informative when it comes to legal statures. Each episode varies and it taught me so much about the American legal system e.g. fifth amendment rights , legal loop holes etc (not that I'll ever need them obvs).

The show in it's final season actually stars Jeffery Dean Morgan - 'Neegan' from The Walking Dead', so that's an exciting character to see before the show concludes. 'The Good Wife' is gripping drama and everything in it is fresh, imminently watchable, and instantly turns it into entertainment gold, as soon as you press play on the first season.

SONS OF ANARCHY:

It's an amazing tv show about a bikers club, who run guns. It tells the story of Jackson "Jax" Teller , a member of the brotherhood, who finds his own loyalty to the group tested when he experiences its increasing anarchy and dishonour, while at the same time adjusting to life as a father. However complicating matters are Jax's mother and stepfather, two merciless individuals who happen to be the architects behind the club. 
AMERICAN ODYSSEY:

This show got cancelled after the first season, eve though I don't understand why. Don't let this fact have an influence over you watching it because it's good - it's so so good. The show centres around Sargent. Odelle Ballard, a female army member on a mission with her special-ops task force when she stumbles across encrypted files proving a major American corporation, is covertly financing terrorist groups. After copying the files onto a flash drive, her unit is attacked by U.S. Special Forces, with Ballard the only survivor, and she quickly finds herself fighting for their life in a foreign country.

TOP INSTAGRAM MISTAKES YOU DON'T KNOW YOU'RE MAKING


WHITE SHIRT | SIMILAR

ROSE GOLD HEELS | BOOHOO





DON’T DISMISS INSTA STORIES:

Instagram stories allows you to be more personal with your followers. I especially enjoy watching Instastories because it allows me to see what the individuals I follow are up to on a daily, basis. It’s sort of a behind the scenes access platform that allows followers to gain a real insight to bloggers/YouTubers lives. If you’re a blogger and you aren’t on YouTube(don’t vlog or anything like that) then this is great for you because it allows you to shoot short snippets that show off your personality and show your followers the real you and not the perfectly put together in blogpost images version of you that they normally see (let be honest, no one looks like they do in blog pictures 24/7), it’s sort of a Youtube vlog, but on Insta.

Insta stories is also great because it’s a potential way to beat the Algorithm. If you’ve got a new Instagram post/blog post that you want to make your followers aware of then this is the place to do it. The Instagram Algorithm is meant to filter feeds and show users the posts that it determines they’ll be the ‘most’ interested in seeing at the top of their feeds, which means that some posts can easily be missed. Adding announcement such as new posts on Instastories is a wonderful backup to ensure that your posts are not missed.  It’s a real game changer.

NOT KNOWING THE PRIME TIME FOR YOUR INSTA POSTS.

“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is "timing"
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.” 

The above is one of my favourite quotes ever. I am a genuine believer in the mind-frame that everything happens in it’s own time, so why not Instagram posts?! I have worked out when my posts get the highest responses from my lovely followers through I noticing that I get the most engagement on weekends, so I try to post as much as possible then. I also get the most engagement on Sunday’s at about 9.10pm, as I noticed that people will do anything to take their minds off having to think about going to work, so.... enter my new post! I also use specialised apps to help me to determine the best ROI on posting and a fave app of mine would have to be ‘Prime’. It’s great because it works out from past post results, the best post times that WILL provide me with results.

DON’T LEAVE YOUR PERSONALITY AT THE DOOR. 

The best Instagram accounts tend to be the ones with funny/alluring captions. I can’t hate on a good caption, in fact it makes me pay attention to that particular blogger's post again and again. I admit that my captions aren’t the best, but no ones really are when you are being yourself, obviously some people have more to say than others, and that ok, as long as you are being true to yourself and your followers and showing through showing them who you are (especially when it comes to showing off that awkward personality of yours). At the end of the day your audience will appreciate your boldness and enjoy your posts that much more. Likability is also very important; consumers choose to work with people and businesses that they know, like, and trust. When you have a blog, you humanize your brand and help them feel like they’re getting to know you.

CASETIFY CASES




I was recently contacted by the lovelies at Casetify to try out one of their personalised phone cases and jumped at the chance to work with them after going on their site and noticing that you could design your own phone case. The way their site works is that you can connect to your Instagram / Facebook or even upload the photos from your computer; -making your phone case more personal with the individually selected photos that mean something to you. I also love their cases because they are well built and look like they will protect my phone really well, which is a huuuuge bonus. I have in the past found that a lot of iPhone cases have a tendency to be a little on the bulky side, which is great for protecting your precious phone but can get a little irritating when it feels as though I'm carting a small house brick around everywhere and I don't have to deal with none of that with this case which is amazing.

Casetify have also got a new 'Glitter Cases Collection' that I've got my eye on.  I NEED one (or fifty lol) of these cases - so SO pretty! Casetify don't only have phone cases on their site, they also have iPad cases, Macbook sleeves and so much more...
