HEALTH & HAPPINESS.



It has become apparent to me over the last couple of years how important your inner health is. I feel that the media and some celebrities are making good progress on showing and exploring the importance of healthy eating and exercise. 

We still have the occasionally backlash of fad diets and drastic weight loss publicised in a positive way when they are by no means positive for your body and mind long term, however overall I think people are quickly learning the importance of looking after our bodies.  

This leads me to my constant struggle with eating the correct way for my health (cfs/me & underactive thyroid) and weight  and trying to stay focused for the long term. 

The importance is to remember you are allowed set backs and when falling off course and indulging to much to take the time to re focus and remember where you want your mind and body to be in years to come. I know for sure as my 29th eagerly approaches that by my 30th I want to feel the healthiest I have been in a long time and look forward to a happy bright future. 

Love your body, relax, exercise for fun, de-stress, have lots of cuddles, spend quality time with your family & friends and cherish the moments people can take for granted and remember you are what you eat. 
In the words of the Buddha ..........
"what you think you become"

TWO JUMPERS & A JUMPSUIT.




Christmas is coming and my wish list is certainly getting fat!!

Over at Best Days Vintage you will find yourself some lovely little vintage Christmas treats so please go and take a look.
 I am a massive fan of their funky filled fabulous shop delightfully drenched in fantastic finds ( try saying that after some snowballs)  that I had to add these three must haves to my Christmas list.

I have jumper joy at the moment and its all I'm searching for or pondering over so these two beauties tickled my  fashion taste buds nicely along with the very gorgeous jumpsuit ready for a festive party.

I hope everyone is enjoying getting into the Christmas spirit.......Not long now so get thrifty!!!!!!

FALL FASHION.

Seasons Greetings 

Are you getting ready for the Christmas party season? or an Autumn event?
 I am already working out what dress to wear for events coming up over this festive seasonal time. I have this one dress I wanted to wear last year for my work Christmas do but I just wasn't in shape enough, I'm really hopeing I will be able to step out in it for at least one of my Christmas events this year.  

One way to get styling and thinking about what to wear this season is if you pairing up with your boyfriend, fiancĂ© or husband to some autumn or festive events, working together and complimenting each others looks can be lots of fun. 

I was sent over some shots from Bonobos new fall suits LookBook  and not only are the men modelling the mens suits collection very dashing the suits and jackets themselves are very stylish and perfect for this years  autumn trends.
Here I have chosen one of my favourite suits from the selection I was sent and designed a mood board for two outfits I would wear to compliment the suit. 

If your going to turn up to parties with a dashing man like this on your arm then why not wow the room by complimenting each other's looks and working as a very stylish pair. 

Make sure you get your partner to take a look through Bonobos Fall LookBook you will be pleasently surprised. 



Dresses: Boohoo (currently in sale)
Shoes: ASOS
Cats Ears: Claires
Bow Tie & Head Band: ASOS
Rings: CIJNINTL.COM & HEMINGJEWELS.COM 

Step over to my Polyvore account and you can shop this set * Eliza K's Polyvore *

I love how the electric blue of both dresses would bring out the blue in the plaid of the suit. Keeping it simple with both dresses pairing some black statement stiletto's and stylish eye catching rings. The cats ears and bow tie would turn the boob tube body con number into something fun, flirty and sexy yet the head bow and rings would turn the two tiered drape dress into something more girlie and dainty. 
I love both looks and either way the shoes work with both and the man in this suit is your ultimate accessory. 



Hope you have been having a happy Halloween (post to follow)


Love Lucy

BARGAIN BUNDLE.






I couldn't believe my luck when I picked up this bargain vintage wrap round number. £2 and it was all mine. 
I recently visited my second Secret Vintage Fair and was lucky enough to stumble across a bundle of reduced items. This darling dress was one of them. 
The shape reminds me of a 1950s number whereas the shoulders are very 90s chic.
Perfect outfit for my friend Vics birthday dinner and drinks cannot wait to wear it again I hear Christmas party bells ringing. 

Would love to hear of any vintage bargains people have picked up recently?

VMA 2014 FAVOURITES.











So here are my very easily selected VMA 2014 best outfits- which some I was surprised by. Meaning the likes of Ke$ha, Rita Ora and Mylie whom I'm no big fan of really stepped up the style stakes on the night. I love how Rita's Dress hangs on her curves and really compliments her blond hair and clear complexion, Ke$ha Looks stunning I was amazed a girl who in my eyes often can look very tacky absolutely wows in this gorgeous figure creating gown! Mylie looks so stylish and actually seems her age in a very current leather two piece (no leotard needed).

Off course my celebrity fashion favourites have made an appearance because without being biased as they can hardly ever do wrong in my eyes, always step up in the style awards. Bey looks amazing as always in her black gown and the Kardashian's look perfect. I'm totally in love with Kim's 70's style dress and Kendall and Kylie always look stunning in black. 

Nicki's naturally look is really working for her at the moment and her choice of dress is perfect in my eyes she is still managing to ooze her fierce freaky side with the subtle leopard print whilst hugging her body in a very stylish and sexy way. I want that dress!

Solange is superb at styling the androgynous look she knows how to complement her look with square shapes which adds a quirkiness to her style. I love her two piece teamed with healed barely there sandals which add a very feminine touch.

So I have to mention Katy Perry. I think what she did channelling Britney and Justin's post 2001 VMA matching denim numbers was absolutely awesome.

DAISY DREAMING.



Daisy Dreaming

I love fields full of flowers and my Mum found this dream one filled with Daisies which happen to be her favourite flower.
So what a better idea then an impromptu photo shoot in the field to cheer up my very dear friend Jodie. She loves the camera and the camera loves her.

We had lots of fun and giggles and I'm very happy with the outcome for Jodie that day and for my photography album.

I hope these images put a smile on your faces

CLASHING PRINTS & JOLLY JELLIES.





Tartan Blazer: Charity Shop 
Leopard Print Trapeze Dress: missguided
Panel Leggings: Primark 
Red Jelly Sandals: Birthday Present - New Look  - 
Bag: Tesco 

My favourite outfit from the month of April.
I'm so in love with my Jelly Sandals I was lucky enough to get three pairs for my birthday. I find these red ones go great with anything and bring out the red in my Blazer. I only really get to experiment with my wardrobe at the weekends as I have a uniform during the week (which is a good thing as I get covered in all sorts being a nursery nurse.)
So Saturday's & Sunday's for me a fancy fun days where I dive into my wardrobe's and try to make use of my hoards of second hand and new purchases. Don't you love it when you can team a second hand beauty with a new season item and then re wear them differently over the year. I'm a sucker for keeping things and pulling them out in whatever seasons, I'm not one of these girls who has a wardrobe for each season I dress for my mood and days events.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, I went car booting today but didn't make much money, however it was a lovely sunny day and I made a few sneaky purchases sssssh!!

Don't forget you can see my #ootd's over on my Instagram. Come say Hi I love new followers with the same passion as me.

Love Lucy
