LIFESTYLE || Updated Office Tour

Hey Everyone, 
I’ve finally got round to doing an updated office tour. I’ve been putting it off as I’ve still been buying bit and bobs for my office to update the interior. I decided I wanted to add more colour to the room to brighten it up. 

Original Office Tour | HERE |

My main requirement from my office was the need for storage space as well as an ‘instagram friendly’ room. The IKEA KALLAX is the perfect solution. You can display your treasures & hide your clutter. It’s a versatile piece of furniture which you can buy storage boxes to fit into them. I've got my gin collection in one of the squares as well my trainer collection down the left.

I like the fact I can change the layout and accessories whenever I want, The colour palette I’ve gone for is a mixture of white, copper, black, beige and green. By having the background as white and all my furniture is white it makes my coloured accessories pop and is bang on trend this season. I’ve also got a few marble accessories to match my business 'Collab Media' theme.

 I was kindly sent these leaf prints by Alice Accessories who found me on Instagram. I've been after some of these for a while as I wanted to something to fill the white space. Instead of putting them on the wall I decided to just prop them up instead. (mainly because I lack basic DIY skills)

Red Candy Corkboard Map Collaboration
I’ve also collaborated with RedCandy who are interior accessory brand & they've kindly sent me this cork board world map to put on the wall of my office. This is a great way for me to display my favourite travel memories as you can use pins to pin up things like travel tickets and postcards! You could also use this as a notice board, which is essential in an office!

A lot of the main details of my office such as paint colour and where my wall paper was from is in my original post, so I won't repeat this information. But one of the new additions to my office is my degree which I've had framed put up on the wall, directly in front of my desk, I always look at it if I'm in need of some motivation or a confidence boost! 

Hope you enjoyed my office tour if you want to know where anything else is from add a comment below.

FASHION || Trendeo Summer Fashion

Hey everyone, 
I think it's safe to say our summer has been pretty crappy this year, it feels like we've only had 1 week of sunny weather. That being said, it's not putting me off getting a full wardrobe of new summer clothes. Luckily I've been on 2 holidays already this summer and have just booked my 3rd for September with my best friend so at least I'll have a chance to wear my SS17 wardrobe. 

Trendeo recently contacted me regarding a collaboration with the brand.  Trendeo is an online fashion brand where you can shop for less, the website has a range of brands from across Europe on one platform which provide you with an extensive range of great quality, stylish fashion products at really competitive prices. Thousands of new lines are added weekly, with discounts of up to 75%!
I decided to pick a piece for my upcoming holiday which I'd be able to wear on the night for a meal etc. I'm really into playsuits & dresses that are either short at the front & long at the back or have a slit leg. I spotted this playsuit which combines the two and is a lot more practical as it's a playsuit rather than a short dress. 
Bralet - Topshop 
Heels - Primark 
Hair Extensions - KoKo Couture 

The playsuit is currently out of stock but I'll keep this blog up to date when it comes back in. Trendeo has also offered a coupon for my followers giving 20% off orders so don't forget to use this when you check out. - ELLIER20

FASHION || Psyche Ladies Fashion Photoshoot P1

Psyche Fashion in Middlesbrough
Hey Everyone, 
This is a little different from my usual post because I was recently invited down to Psyche Fashion in Middlesbrough for a photo shoot to show off the range of ladies collection they have.

Before the shoot, I was kindly invited to Heather Francessca Pro Makeup Studio which is just down the road from Psyche, to have my makeup done by the talented Heather who I'd be following on Instagram for months and seen so many looks I wanted. We went for a less glam makeover as the shoot was during the day and I wanted to create looks that would reflect my style, so more causal.

This is part 1 of my mini shoot with Psyche as we shot 4 different looks using the collections in store. 
The first look I picked out was a 'glamorous festival' style look. I wore this Little White Lies 
bell sleeve embroidered dress and paired it with a Kendall & Kylie lips detailed leather mini tote bag, which was so cute!

Outfit 2 - Casual

The second outfit was more casual. I wore a quirky long sleeve jumper by Moschino. The design featured animal & floral embroidery. I paired this outfit with the Kendall and Kylie sliders which feature a rubber and leather construction that has been detailed with a matte chain finished upper pane. These are by far the comfiest sandals I've worn... ever!

FASHION | WODEN Trainers Unboxing

 Scandinavian brand Woden (WOrks of DENmark )
Hi Everyone, 
This week's blog post is dedicated to the Scandinavian brand Woden (WOrks of DENmark ), who are all about change, style and passion. I kindly sent my second pair of trainers from the brand. My first collaboration was just under a year ago when they sent me a pair of their copper sneakers, which you will have seen if you're following me on Instagram. 

I thought it was only fitting to do a blog post unboxing of the trainers to show them off in all their glory. I'll be doing a second blog post showing you how I've styled them up. 

This collaboration was to promote their SS17 trainer collection which I got to pick a pair from the range. I went for something a little bit bold but I think would be perfect for summer as they feature the blush pink cameo print. 
Woden sneakers are made of natural materials such as high-quality suede and cork, so they're definitely more unique than your high street trainer design. Not only are they comfortable but they are a bold, statement piece than can be worn with almost anything. 
 Their shoes are sold in over 500 stores Worldwide and are available in the UK at Psyche fashion. If you're after this particular design then the UK stockist of these are available at Eleven Boutique.
