Blank Space

UNIF mesh dress grunge fashion

I’ve got a confession. I’ve been avoiding this, avoiding opening up my Mac, going to blogger and trying to make a semi-decent post. And tonight I decided that I really shouldn’t avoid this any longer, the longer I leave it the worst it will get. Its time to reclaim my blogger flow and bang out a post. Or well, thats what i’ve told myself to do anyway, be gentle with me I feel rusty even though its not even been a week since I last posted. 

We all know I love mesh right? and that I really really love grunge/90s fashion and that I really really REALLY love UNIF? Cool. Take a look at this banger I snagged. 

A few weeks ago, I got an email from UNIF saying they were to have a crazy sample sale, as I was poor and it was near payday I swiftly deleted the email and never looked at the site, I don’t need that kind of temptation in my life. Then, Kim knowing that I loved all things UNIF tweeted me about the sale and all the madness going on. I took a sneaky peak at the site and well I gave into temptation [it doesn’t take much] Nothing really caught my eye at first until I saw this beauty in all its meshy glory, their was only a size small left and at $23 I thought I would take a gamble in the hopes that it would fit.

I practically camped out by my front door for the post as I always do when I order something from UNIF -BTW kudos to you UNIF having speedy international shipping without charging me a wholes months wage to post it, you did good. Thankfully after trying it on the dress fit, however the fabric inserts that break up the mesh are just that bit too high meaning serious underboob exposure and all of my butt so much so I had to put on a black body con skirt underneath and a crop, life hacks of a tall girl. 

Apart from my giantism getting in the way, i’m really happy I gave into temptation and picked this up. Its so well made and lovely and basically I want to live in it. I kind of feel like a basket baller playing for the goth side? I don’t know. I’m still thinking up of ways which to style it up. In this instance I opted for my Doc socks James’ parents got me for Christmas and creeper combo.

10 Ways To Keep Motivated In Exercise


I like to stick to some sort of exercise routine, back when, I was an avid gym goer smashing it 6 times a week, Now i’ve got a busy job a busy life and can’t seem to find the time to dedicative as much time working out as I used to. I moved to a small village where the nearest gym is a bit of a trek espesh when one can’t drive. I now do a work out guide at home and really really watch what I eat [forgetting the pizza] Sometimes its hard to keep the motivation when you just c.b.a. pals and at this moment in time man am I feeling totally unmotivated. So in order to shift this thing thats stolen all my work out mojo I thought i’d complie a list of all the things I do to snatch it right back. I will get dem abs even if it kills me one burpee at a time.

1) Plan. Guys for myself I can’t stress how important it is to plan your workouts, when ya doing them and what ya’ll be doing. You’ll feel like you’re actually getting somewhere. Myself I like to follow Kayla Itsines Bikini body guide on Mon, Wed and Fri the days in between a 30-40 min run and Sunday rest.

2) Aid. I find having apps to count calories and track your exercise progression really helps. A popular one and my fave is my fitness pal. I would also recommend some sort of fitness watch. I love the polar watches with heart monitors which track the calories you’ve burnt.

3) Gym Gear. Ya no, its a little bit weird the effect of sprucing up your gym wardrobe can have on you, funny i’ll find an excuse to shop.

4) Pick your thang. What I mean is, theres so many forms of exercise, running, pilates, swimming even swinging yourself round a pole. Pick the one you love, you’ll be more then likely stick to it.

5) Balance. Its ok to slack off every now and then. Some days you’ll want to smash the gym, do your squats, get an early night repeat. Or yano, if you wanna eat that pretty looking cupcake with all the frosting and skip your workout for the day thats cool. Its called balance.

6) Pictures. Take a picture before your fitness journey and then every 1-2 weeks. If you’re feeling like you’re not getting anywhere and in a bit of a rut like I find myself guilty of sometimes, you can refer back to the picture before to see how far you’ve come!

7) Scales. Forget em’. Following on from the point before, you’ll be able to track your progress better by looking at comparison pictures then whats said on the scale.

8) Don’t beat yourself up if you fancy a treat every now and again or a cheeky take away after a particularly taxing work week, I read somewhere ‘’one bad meal won’t make you fat and one good meal won’t make you skinny” True dat.

9) Motivational quotes. As sad as it sounds, I like to read a bunch if i’m feeling partially bleh and can’t be bothered to do any form of exercise  and then feel ready to beast my workout.

10) Goal. Just think how GOOD its gonna feel when you hit your goal. Keep thinking of the bigger picture!

Do you have any work out motivational tips? What do you do when you’re having a bit of a work out slump?

5 Things I Love About LYDC


Ok so its no secret whats so ever at all I’ve been crushing on LYDC for a while now. I’ve been working for them quite some time and i’m literally so honoured to be apart of this forward thinking fresh and forever evolving brand. I gladly wear my ambassador status with pride, let me show you why:

1) The choice in bags. My gosh, if you’ve got yourself a spare hour set aside I do strongly recommend spending that browsing the site at all the creations they have to offer. I would bet my LYDC collection that theres something EVERYONE, everyone. I am totally in love with my lemon number and its just so perfect for the summer months coming, how great does it look with this french/spring-vibez outfit thing I got going onnn’ ?

2) The cute accessories that go with the beautiful collection of bags, have you seen the pom poms for crying out loud!? Bonus points for the softest synthetic fur used, no animals hurt in the making my friends and well that makes me all kinds of happy. 

3) The staff. [shout out to Chloe the top BABE] So genuinely caring and attentive towards customers, totally catering to what they want and delivering it oh so perfectly. Companies and this kind of customer care is far and few between at the moment which is sad. 

4) ANNA.SMITH as mentioned in previous post  I love LYDC’s ‘’alternative sister” If you love novelty bags/clutches, from watermelons to clapper boards and bold prints and have all the edges Anna Smith is for you. 

5) DID YOU KNOW THEY CLOTHES TOO?! yup you read right, LYDC now have clothes though Lispy. Keep checking back to their site as more and more pieces are added, i’m excited are you excited? That reminds me, I need to make space in my wardrobe for their new drop. . . . 

Keep your eyes firmly on LYDC, great things are coming ^_^ 









What do you think to LYDC and their bags? Add “Jess10” at the checkouts for an extra 10% off ^_^ a gift from me to you ;) well LYDC but you get the gist pals.

The Holy Grail That Is The Unitard


Every now and again I find a piece of clothing that speaks to me on another level, something that was made for people in mind, something that is just all the right amount of wrongs that its just completely right. I give you: the unitard.

My unitard obsession started when I saw ASOS selling one a few years back. It was out of stock in my size and I was crushed [all about the dramatics] that I couldn’t find anything similar on the world wide web. I then saw Motel was doing one with a cute elephant design but basically I didn’t feel like I could blow like £40 on one, soz Motel mebs next time. 

Like I mention in my last post  I may have gone a little bit wild and bought all the things from the H&M site. I can’t be held accountable for my actions when the Coachella range is so freaking good, kudos H&M. And I may or may not have got heart palpitations when I saw this unitard and instantly fell in love with the 80s or whatever pattern and I may or may to of cried a little bit when I put it on at how much it unlocked all the hippie goals. The original unitard was shorts and not full legged but I thought for £8, this one would do. Now the fun part for me is figuring how to style this bad boy, for the moment I just threw on my trusty denim vest and creepers for a quick style up. I’m sure the more I wear it, the more I’ll be able to show off it true potential. This will defiantly be a summer staple for me, or an any staple for that matter. 

***I wanted to attempt to be dare I say it ~different~ and change my pictures a bit I ended up just sitting on a bunch of stuff and well yeah. Gold star for trying?

What do you think to the unitard? How would you of styled it up?

Not Dressing For The Weather Is alright Sometimes.


I feel funny today. I’m restless yet unmotivated to do anything. I find myself lately staying in bed later then I should, forcing myself to get up and then a few hours later I return back to my haven. I’m in a life funk at the moment. Why though i’m unsure, my blog is doing better then I could ever dream, I have some really really exciting projects coming up that I can’t wait to share with you all. I recently bagged my dream job. That was the thing that got me the most. At 26 I wondered if I was to ever able to be proud of the job i’m doing, to find something I was good in, that I excel in. This all sounds so narcissistic but after a long time coming I am proud of myself and i’ve learnt to recognise my achievements and it be ok to chuffed for yourself after a childhood/early adult life of them being overlooked by people that should be happy for you. I do it for myself now, no one else. 

In a bid to not have this a completely wasted day, I dressed as if it was summer and put on the most lovely playsuit i’ve found in a long long time. I forgot what was bouncing around my head and pretend I was somewhere sunny and it help a bit. I recently went a little crazy on the H&M website. Its the brand I love to hate, devine clothes and reasonable prices, the only thing is the God Damned sizing but i’ve wasted more then enough time prattling on about that in the past so i’ll save it for today. 

If I was to be doing Leeds fest this year, this lovely little thing would probably be my staple piece of the weekend. Its a shame the line up is the worst i’ve seen in a fair while leaving me no desire to go, shame as it will be the first time in years.
 The pattern, square neck line and sleeves leave my craving for a Spanish adventure, waking up early and staying up late. Perhaps this summer thats just what i’ll have.

Why Do I Even Bother? I Already Know I’ll Look Great.



When the lovely Francesca got in touch and told me she created cute alternative stationery and accessories I was all ears.  She very kindly sent me out one of her brightly coloured slogan pocket mirrors with tongue in cheek phrases such as, ‘’Why do I bother? I already know I look great” and my personal favourite “its rude to stare” Cheeky.

Pocket mirrors are my biggest saviour when i’m out and about. Little and handy to throw into your bag and whip out to see if i’ve rubbed off half of my eyeliner and rubbed it down my face somehow that or trying to get whatever the hell has been in my eye since 9.00am out. Cheeky and convenient at the same time, hardly breaking the bank coming in at £3 ^_^

After having a little look at Francesca's site I was laughing to myself at the “grump greetings’’ section of the site and the mythological mayhem stationery. Sarcastically great creativity I can get on board with.

See for yourself and visit Francesca's EtsyShop for my slogan themed stationary.

Long Clothing x Grace Neutral

Long Clothing Grace Neutral

Oops she did it again, Grace I mean. Grace dropped another dope collab high five pixie queen.

Its no secret I am a big of a fan girl when it comes to anything Grace and whenever I get wind she’s in the mix of creating something with another equally wicked company I literally wait with breath that is bated. Literally. The Pieces in the range as expected did not disappoint but where a tad out of my price range cos ~poor~ CUE THE EASTER SALE TO THE RESCUE, that and my sister very kindly said she would get me something off the site for my birthday. Winnaaa. My fave fave item was this gloriously lovely cropped top with a lovely high polo neck thang finished off with a band of what I like to call witchy symbols. Not quite sure what they are but thats what i’m going with. I'm really liking clothing items finsihed off with a band. Band. 

For ultimate grunge vibes I thought It would go perfectly with something tartan and luckily enough I have a mountain of tartan for me to choose from I went for my black watch beauties and my docs cos ultimate grunge and of course turned them up as I’m tall and everything comes up short on me anywayz. I’m just going to address my hair sitch. The night before I did a fashion show in Leeds and my hair was back combed to within an inch of its life and well this was the result the morning after. Instead of battling it, I decided to work with it for the day. Nightmare to get out my heads still sore and I swear i’m about 67% less of hair now. 

100% in love with this top and i’m already mentally calculating my finances so I can get more from the site, who needs food anyway?
