Boutique Of Molly Sparkly Dress

Another post on the Boutique Of Molly is here!

As you all know i have worked with the brand a few times already and i love their clothes!
They always fit perfectly and the quality is great.

So, with this in mind i decided to browse their site a few days ago and saw this amazing dress, which i knew would be perfect for the party season; more specifically new years eve.

Now i will say this does does moult glitter slightly, but i am sure after a few wears it will be fine as the excess glitter will have fallen off. Another thing i must say about this dress is that it is extremely soft on the skin, having sensitive skin is an issue for me with glittery clothing, but this is great!

So without further ado, here is the dress, and remember to use my code CHARLIBETH20 for 20% off your order with them!

(please also excuse the picture quality, i'm having some slight camera issues atm)

Trend Of The Week: Ribbed Jumpers

Ribbed jumpers for me never really go of trend during the colder months. My wardrobe is full of them and i will buy as many as i can physically fit in, but as we all know over time our favourite jumpers start to look a little shabby and that means it is time to go on the hunt for another.

Now i realise i have featured a few jumpers on here, but this is because they are one of the most versatile pieces ever!

This post is all about a fitted, little H&M jumper in a colour i never saw myself in, but i am quite glad i pushed myself to try it on as i know it will now be one of my everyday go-to's

Skirt: Topshop (similar here)

Jimmy Choo Shoes

As my 21st birthday is a few months away i decided it was time to treat myself to something that i have wanted for AGESS!

I think every girl has a thing that they would choose to buy over anything else and my thing is shoes!
I have that many pairs that i can never remember exactly what is in my wardrobe and some even have to be stored in other places now as the wardrobe is over-flowing!

One of my personal goals was to get my first pair of proper designer heels, so on Saturday i hit Birmingham with selfridges in my sites and bought my first (and deffo not the last) pair of Jimmy Choos!

Here they are in their first, un-boxing glory and i really couldn't be happier with my decision to go for these classic, black patent court shoes!

I'll stop rambling on now and let you take a look at the beauties!

Trend Of The Week: Understated Sparkles

As we all know party season is approaching so almost everything in the shops has suddenly become bedazzled in sequins and glitter.

Now i like glitter and sequins in general but, on me not so much. My skin marks very easily so as sequins and glittery clothing tends to be quite scratchy i end up covered in quite unattractive red marks; so i tend to avoid them at all costs.

This week when shopping for a trend i came across alot of jumper with hints of sparkle and was surprised at how soft the material was, so i bit the bullet and took a few to the changing rooms to try them on.

My findings were that quite a few of them were still very itchy and uncomfortable, but a few were actually wearable. As it is nearly christmas i decided to just by the one (saving for something big atm)

So here it is, an understated, sexy sparkly jumper that doesn't irritate your skin . . .

Jumper: New Look
Jeans: Primark
Shoes: Boohoo

Body Overhaul

Over the past 4 or so years i have been in a constant state or either maintaining or loosing weight.

Deciding to loose weight was my  choice as one day it just hit me how out of shape i was. So as i was 16 at the time my mom decided that the best way to help me loose the weight would be to join a gym.

When i started going all those years ago i hated it with a passion! I would rather have done anything than gone to the gym, but the effort i put in did pay off and after a few months of restricting calories and exercising i had lost 2 1/2 stone.

Ever since then i have been 'maintaining' my weight.

I ate (and still do eat) 1300 calories a day. This does not mean that i don't have days where i eat loads because you have to, restricting yourself too much makes you crave the 'bad' foods even more.

More recently, over the past 3/4 months i have seriously upped my game again and my main goal now is to tone up. I also have recently discovered that i have an intolerance to wheat. This has meant that my diet has had to completely change too.

Combining my 1300 calories a day with an hour long pilates class weekly, plus a gym session (or 2 if i can fit it in) i have really noticed a change in my body, and can say i am starting to see abs!!!

Honestly i don't really have progress shots as the change has happened without me really paying too much attention until i caught myself in the mirror last week and noticed definition, but here are some pics of me and a few other bits and pieces :)

Just know that if you are currently trying to loose weight or tone up it IS POSSIBLE! it does take time and alot of effort but, if you ask me its well worth it.
