Design your own wellies!

Hello you lovely lot, now, you know I'm one for list making and planning ahead but I think I may be taking it too far this time. Glastonbury isn't until next June and I'm already on the verge of planning outfits. I need to slow down. But I will allow myself to get a new pair of wellies - after three very muddy years at Leeds festival my old supermarket bought pair could do with upgrading. 

design your own wellies joules competition

Just as well then that Joules are launching a design your own welly competition! I've always enjoyed designing and customising things, ever since I was little, so this sounds like a lot of fun to me. And it might sound fun to you too once you find out the winner of the competition gets a luxury break worth £5000 plus their design will be for sale on with all profits going to Charitably Joules. And, (yes, there's more), 10 runners up are treated to a £250 Joules gift card. That enough motivation to get your pencils out?

How exciting does that sound?! I know I have a lot of talented creative people who read my blog (hello) so this one is definitely for you. Why not give it a try?

The past few seasons have been a mix up of 70s and 90s and lately I've been swinging more towards the 70s trends, but this outfit shook that up a little. To celebrate Charli XCX's collaboration with Boohoo, I styled up this 90s inspired look and was loving it. Especially the free sweets and snap bracelet..oh the nostalgia.

Admittedly Charli XCX gives off more of a Spice up your life girl power vibe, which I love, but I kinda put my own spin on the 90s trend with the grunge colour scheme and classic hoop earrings. Also, I don't know what it is, but I always associate western style belts with mom jeans..another classic 90s trend. Note that the grubby converse were most definitely influenced by the fact I was listening to Nirvana whilst getting ready.

What's your take on the nineties? Don't forget to check out the full #CharliXCX4Boohoo collaboration and let me know your fave pieces!

When it comes to being healthy, sometimes you need a little motivation. Some might go for a personal trainer yelling in their face, some might stick pictures of their body goals on the wall, or, like myself, some might find themselves some new fitness gear. That part's my favourite.

Every once in a while you find a pair of shoes that you just want to wear with everything; these are those shoes. These Lacoste trainers are obviously meant for the gym, but I love their bold red colour so much (and the fact they're so damn comfortable) I paired them with this simple day look. See? I'm being constantly motivated, even when I'm running for the train to uni.

If you need a little motivation yourself, take a look at the #StayFitDontQuit campaign and find yourself some good reasons to go the gym on Get The Label.
