♥ First Photos ♥

Hello Lovelies!

If you read my last post you'd know that I've recently invested in a new camera! I'm still adjusting on how to use it, but I wanted to show you guys my first shots.

I'm currently up in Lancashire (England) visiting family, we're staying on a campsite surrounded by lovely views and these 'little' neighbours!

Last night we spent the evening at a friends house for dinner; I stepped outside to call Alex, and saw this little fella scurrying around in the middle of a busy road at the bottom of the drive! I rescued him before he soon because road kill - however unfortunately I couldn't bring him home! :-(

Willow also become a model for me! 


♥ Topshop Outfit ♥

Guess who's gotten addicted to Polyvore...that's right, me! I've created this outfit using purely Topshop clothing; I love the edgy Goth look including the layered flannel. You can view links to the items and prices over on my Polyvore profile > HERE.

Would you wear this outfit? If you'd like me to create an outfit using a specific item of clothing please leave a comment bellow!

♥ Where am I? ♥

Hey Lovelies!

I'd just like to quickly update you on why I have been slacking on the quantity and quality of my blog posts. Over the past 3 weeks I have been travelling around visiting friends and family across England in a caravan. This has meant I've had limited (mainly no) internet, limited clothes and make up range and no proper showers - aka TORTURE. However, I have had a wonderful time with my parents and the people I have spent time with along the way :-) I arrive home on August 22nd so from then on I should be back into my normal blogging routine.

One last thing...

I'm VERY excited to have invested in a new camera, which means better quality photos AND a possible 'accordingtoabi' YouTube channel launching at the end of this month!

Keep posted for further updates :-)

Love ~ Abi


♥ Sunshine & Stripes ♥

I have created this set on Polyvore taking inspiration of Zoe's style (Zoella.) The combination of black and white is such a chic look. You can click HERE to view my profile on Polyvore, where you can find out where the items of clothing are from and their prices. Enjoy!

♥ OOTD: The Primark Kimono ♥

As we all know, Kimonos are a big thing at the moment. I find that they're the statement piece to an outfit as they mostly come in colourful patterns and therefore can't be made to suit many outfits. My point is when I have come across a couple I have loved in shops and they have cost around £25-£40, for a piece of clothing that can't be worn with many outfits or too often, I always put them down.

That's why when I came across this - what I think is a lovely £8 kimono from Primark, so it went straight in my basket!

Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Ballet Pumps - Marks & Spencer
Bag - Charity Shop!

Mmmmmm, Watermelon Lemonade!
Dress - A boutique in London that I can't remember the name
Necklace - Accessorize

♥ Summer Makeup Routine ♥

Hello Lovelies!

Products in todays post
Get naked this summer! (Not literally, unless that's what you're into) But summer is a time to strip back on the heavy makeup, keeping it light and simple. I'm thinking about putting a post together on general summer makeup tips, so keep tune! For now though, here in my summer makeup routine.

Soltan Once Face Moisturising Suncare Cream SPF30 50ml £5.50
I begin by applying this moisturising sun cream all over my face. At factor 30spf and lasting 8 hours, I like to apply this in the morning as it lasts all day. I have very fair skin, therefore this is VERY important for me to do!

Seventeen Miracle Matte Primer £4.99
After leaving my sun cream to soak in for a while, I begin my make up by priming my face. I am currently using the matte 22 hour shine control primer by Seventeen.

Collection, Ultimate Wear Concealer £4.19
Beginning with my Lasting Perfection concealer by Collection, I cover up dark circles and blemishes. If you're wanting to keep your make up very light, I wouldn't continue with the next few stages.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, Benefit £26.50
The Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation by Benefit is my go to summer foundation, if I want to apply any foundation. It gives great coverage and isn't too thick, another bonus is that it also has a 25spf!

Rimmel Stay Matte, £3.99 

If I am finding that my face is still too shiny for my liking, I will apply this long lasting pressed powder in the shade 001 Translucent. It's useful to carry around a pressed powder in your make up bag to remove shine throughout the day.
Collection Bronze Glow, Matt £2.99
I've just noticed that after editing this photo, the bronzer is looking VERY bold haha. I'm loving this matte bronzer by collection, as I'm not someone who naturally tans this helps a lot!

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara £7.99
Curling your eyelashes help make them look more defined in a natural way. If I wanted to put mascara on in this hot weather, I would choose the Maybelline Rocket in waterproof so they'll be no smudging in the heat.
Do you like to wear makeup in the summer or do you prefer not to wear any at all??

♥ Summer Sun ♥

Just a quick little update! I'm currently enjoying the sunshine over on the Isle of Wight, a small island off the south coast of England. I'm spending in total 12 days over here involving plenty of beach days and visiting pretty little towns (which involves eating loads of cake, ice cream and drinking milkshakes!). Apologies for the lack of posting!
My outfit consist of a Topshop coral crop top and these colourful hot pants from Boohoo, I'm also wearing my jelly shoes are from Primark which are perfect for paddling in the sea!

I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine! Are you travelling anywhere or enjoying time at home?
Love ~ Abi
