Celeb Style - Emma Willis

Does anyone still watch Big Brother? I feel like i am one of the last few who still do...ha!

Well since i have been watching it and Emma Willis is now the show presenter, i have been noticing the great style of outfits she has been wearing.



So this is the first item which i saw her wearing. This wasn't actually on Big Brother but when she was on This Morning show.

I love this top. So from a long Google search i did find this exact shirt from Topshop. It was £32.00 and had gone down to £5 in the sale!!! i was gutted when it said 'out of stock' ..no wonder!! 

You can view it HERE and hopefully maybe they will come back in stock. They also have it in  red, which again is sold out now but can be bought HERE (This red one is petite)
Click Here for the long sleeve one.

However i did search a few alternatives:


Now this one was on tv the other night and i fell in love with it. I love the detail, the fit of the dress and the colour is just amazing :-) on tv it came across a gorgeous barbie pink and just stood out to me :-)

However for this one, i found it to be rather expensive :-/ You can find the exact one HERE
It is in the sale so from what is was i suppose it is a good price. I did find some alternatives below too..

Dorothy Perkins  - Slightly more detail on this one but still similar


I love this outfit, it is mainly the pop of neon yellow that does it for me but the detail between that and the black colour is really nice. It is another dress that really compliments the figure.

Right now this dress is sold out but you can find the exact one HERE
You can also get this as a top too: Click Here

It was hard to find an alternative for this dress. I did find two as close to this one as i could. 



I do love bright yellow and this was another piece i fell in love with. Such a cheerful type of dress. Great summer dress because of the yellow and the flowers but who says we can't rock this in Autumn, or even winter. Something to brighten up those dull days i say :-)

So this is another 'rather pricey' dress but it is again in the sale and from what is was originally it is a huge saving. Click Here to view it.

Alternatives:

Dorothy Perkins - Black dress with yellow flowers
French Connection - Black dress with an almost flower design.. :-/

So that was a few of my favourite outfits. I hope you liked them too :-) It was very hard looking around clothes sites for alternatives, i came across so many other outfits i liked!! :-) #GirlProblems ha!

3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Follow my blog with Bloglovin1. Granola Fruit Mix


  • Granola - I am using a healthy homemade one
  • Strawberries
  • Mango & Peach
  • Cinnamon
  • Flaxseed
  • Natural Yogurt - I use yeo valley
To make it you simply just chuck everything in a bowel and done! :-) 
To see how i make this oat/nut mix Click Here



I always have a (lemon) green tea with my breakfast and a glass of water. Sometimes i put a lemon in my water for extra zing :-) (I put the lemon on the rim of the glass here for photo decoration) :-D

2. Eggs & Salmon



  • Salmon - I had cut up and measured the salmon out 28-30 grams each and bagged it up ready to freeze. Forgetting i was going to be using some...and forgetting to take a photo before i had opened the packet (fail) :-/ lol
  • Butter - I use yea valley
  • Black Pepper
  • Eggs -Free Range
  • Milk - I use semi-skinned
  • And the green tea i use is by Clipper

 To make this i like to fry the egg in a bit of butter as it tastes the nicest and the texture is more soft.


3. Porridge



  • Oats - I usually have about 3 and a half palm fulls 
  • Strawberries
  • Milk
  • Flaxseed
  • Cinnamon
  • Honey - Mine is Rowse honey

I pour the milk in just until the oats start to float. I leave it on a medium-low heat until it starts to bubble around the sides. Then i add my cinnamon and a bit of honey. I stir that in then turn the heat down a bit and leave it usually for one more minute until it thickens. I then add in my chosen fruit, usually strawberries, blueberries or blackberries. I do like to add a bit of extra milk at the end and also that is when i add the flaxseed.



Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day.

I hope this post has inspired you. I also did a video on this which you can VIEW HERE

My Holiday to Sweden

At the beginning of July i went on holiday to Sweden with my boyfriend. We stayed with my boyfriends Aunt and her Partner.

So the story is that my boyfriends Aunt (who isn't swedish) met and married a guy who is swedish that she met in England. Now they have a home over in Sweden that they stay in over the summer.

Me and my boyfriend stayed over last year, it was nice to visit again, it brought back memories and i have grown to love Sweden. My boyfriend is actually quarter swedish too which is strange that his aunt married a swedish guy as it is his nan that is half swedish....anywhooo lets get on with the good stuff :-) lol

I did #vlog video's of my time in Sweden so if you do want to know what i did daily then CLICK HERE and that will open a new page to my youtube (vlogging) channel. It is quite new so please help me out by subscribing if you do enjoy my video's... i will hopefully get better :-) And i do have a link on that channel to my beauty and style one.

Right i feel i have rambled enough, lol lets get on with some pictures :-)

These photo's are taken using my DSLR Canon d600 camera.


At the airport
Another food shot from at Stockholm airport, we had about 4 hours to wait for our train!
One of our many meals that we enjoyed out on the balcony :-)

Name of our town we stayed in
Watching the sunset






Once the sunset had gone down
A random house on our late night walk back from sunset, see how light it is and was about 11 or half 11 at night!
Had such a good day on our bike ride

View from the balcony we had our dinner at every night, and mine and the boyfriends cabin at the top there :-)
View of the sunrise,  from our cabin at the top
The next lot of photo's are from my iphone so sorry they are not as good quality.

This is who we stayed with, Gill and Kjell (said like shell,lol) and the dog, Luka :-)
This photo was after we all did a run together.
We started having a routine of having breakfast outside every morning, we had hot weather every day we were there, it reached about 27-30 degrees, i was very happy with that :-)
Me taking photos of the ducks and the sunset :-)

Another nice house
And another

Topshop Matte Nails



These photo's are using two coats of polish
I recently discovered @Topshop Nail Polishes. This probably isn't new for many of you as they have been round for a while.
For me though, i just purchased my first one and i love it :-)

I chose the nude colour which is in the Matte shades and is called Publish
There are a variety of other matte shades. They also do glitter, metallic and pastels, etc

CLICK HERE if you want to check out the website

The one i bought was £6.00 but some they have are £5.00.

I personally love the style of these. I like the frosted look that some of them have on the bottle and then some have polka-dot lids which would look really nice on a display i think :-)
The bottles are cute and small too which i also like. I have had big bottles before and you think you are getting your moneys worth but nail varnish does take a very long time to use up so i prefer smaller bottles now. You always want to buy new ones and end up throwing old ones out anyway.

I might do a blog post soon on 'tips and tricks for lasting nail polish/applying polish' ? I have done a Nail Course before so i do have a lot of tips and tricks up my sleeves :-)

I do hope you enjoyed this blog post and thanks for reading :-)

Please share this post if you liked it and don't forget to follow my blog so you don't miss any future posts :-)

Emma Louise Retail | Boutique Store












I recently visited East Grinstead, which is in the Sussex area, South of England (If you didn't know)

I came across this really nice little Boutique shop. I thought it had such pretty items i had to share it with you. East Grinstead have quite small shops, it isn't a very big town but i am glad i came across this one.

They sell different arts, bags, furniture, gifts, jewellery and antiques.

The owner is called Emma Louise and she is on Facebook which you can visit HERE if you like?

If you are in the area anytime, it is worth checking out :-)
