AD - I've recently started up my own business selling FM - more to come on that in another post but when starting up your own business with limited funds it can be difficult to get started up. With a brand like FM you have the ability to create your own 'look' your own brand and can personalise in anyway possible to create a business for yourself. However, you want to set up a brand but without spending too much money. I wanted to create business cards to compliment my brand but again didn't want to spend too much. After a quick search on Google I looked into various websites that I could create professional looking business cards. Google was my best friend as I couldn't believe all of the resources that literally just started popping up. It's so important to do your research before putting your brand out there as you want to ensure your branding and marketing will stand out - after all you want to sell your product ahead of the competitors!

Sleep... not an easy topic to talk about as it's something I like many have always suffered with. I never seem to switch off and struggle to get as much sleep as I probably need. It’s something I have struggled with for so many years. With life stresses, broken sleep pattern and a crazy work life balance I’ve muddled my way through many many years on little to no sleep. This year I decided enough was enough and this became my focus this year.

I was recently approached by the Coliseum Shopping Park to visit them to pick out some bits ready for Summer. Of course I jumped at the chance. I've just recently swapped over my Winter wardrobe for my Summer one and was looking to add some more key pieces into my wardrobe. 

If you haven't ever been the Coliseum Shopping Park is just around the corner from Cheshire Oaks. It houses so many big retailers and places to eat and drink. They have one of the biggest Superdrug's I've ever seen so expect a separate beauty haul very soon ;)

My style is quite classic chic and I love more of a tailored look so I visited Next, New Look, Topshop and my favourite River Island. I couldn't believe how much I wanted, there was so many pieces I fell in love with so I've taken you with me and you can see all the outfits I pulled together and can't wait to style them all up throughout the Summer.


  First up was this gorgeous dress from Topshop. They do this dress in various different lengths which is great as I picked up the Petite length which fit perfectly. I love the print and colour palette of this dress and feel I will get a lot of wear out of this dress. The added pleats at the bottom are also so adorable it just adds a little something extra. Shirt dresses are going to be everywhere this year and feel this is a perfect look for Spring/ Summer and will also transition all the way through to Autumn.
(Not online but £55)


It's so important for the Summer to have a good pair of denim shorts. I actually already have these shorts in a darker wash and I absolutely love them, I have had so much wear out of them I had to pick up the lighter wash. Paired with a cute cropped t shirt this is the perfect go to casual outfit. Slogan tee's are everywhere but I'm super fussy with which slogans to go for so I love this cute one from Topshop.





 Playsuits are my go to over Summer as I love being able to dress them down with cute sandals or dress them up with wedges or barely there heels. I love this one from River Island as it fits so well and definitely fits with my tailored style. They do it in so many different colours but at the moment I'm definitely living for red! The shorts on this playsuit appear like a skirt and I love that look!





You will see wrap dresses and skirts everywhere this year so I fell in love with this skirt. I love a wrap skirt and find them so flattering on my shape. They are so easy to style and perfect for showing a bit of leg without revealing too much. The bold buttons on this skirt and the paper bag waist is what caught my attention. Pastel blue is definitely one of those colours that screams Summer to me and I will definitely style this with a white cami and white sandals.

As always it wouldn't be a haul from me if I didn't include a little bit of black. I love these shorts and they are so soft. They fit like a dream and are the perfect length not too long and definitely not too short. The little frill detail caught my attention and I just know I'd get so much wear out of these thrown on with a cute little vest top and sandals and can even be dressed up with a pair of heels and a red lip.



I also went to look for a dress to wear for Chester Races and was spoilt for choice. As you may have realised from this haul I love a leg split. I love a wrap dress and this one fit the bill perfectly. It was effortless and I'm loving snake print at the moment. Lipsy had so many dresses fit for weddings and the races I just couldn't choose.

It also wouldn't be a trip into Next if I didn't check out their Home range. I love Next for homeware pieces and they didn't disappoint! I love anything sparkly and I couldn't resist this super sparkly panther!

Have you ever visited the Colisuem Shopping Park? I am so impressed by their range of shops and was definitely spoilt for choice!!
