“The question is, mens watches with womens outfits? Of course! I heard from a company called Invaluable, who asked me the exact question. They are a world premiere, online marketplace for jewellery, watches, antiques, collectibles and even entire estate sales!” I think that men’s watches could definitely be a fashion statement and make the whole thing pop and stand out! I decided to choose this Omega Constellation watch, which you can find HERE. I think that this could stand out, but also comes across as a subtle men’s watch. I would team this with a really cute tea dress, like this one from ASOS – it is by Emily and Fin. I would then accessorise this look with some adorable Jayne T Bar Leather Shoes and a tan bag like this Jack Wills Leather Backpack! I would say that this look is very me, and I would wear this so much! Some might say that it is a bit too much tan/brown, but I LOVE it! Everyone to their own! i highly recommend that you check out Invaluable, as they have some beautiful items that you wouldn’t expect to find just anywhere! Also, keep the mens style/womens style game strong! It’s definitely something that I’m considering to do from now on! What do you guys think about a trend like this? Is it a yes, a no? Let me know! xx

Beauty Sleep Style Challenge – Festival Of Sleep!

Hey guys! JJanuary 3rd was the Festival Of Sleep, so Casper, a new company working within the sleep industry by creating memory foam mattresses (invested by Ashton Kutcher and Steven Allen) have inspired me to show you guys what sort of ‘style’ I wear to bed!  I guess it differs for me now, but I will post the two different styles here anyway! Since I have been living in Australia, obviously it is a lot hotter than the UK – so I have now opted for a cami top and shorts to keep me cool! I have this set from H&M which is $29.95, which might still be available from their Australian stores.

These are so comfy to wear in the night, but they’re also super cute! Moving onto the UK set of sleepwear! As it’s a lot colder and some nights can be chilly – I tend to go for full bottoms, especially the fluffy fleece ones as they’re so nice to lounge around in and make you feel cosy! I have several pairs of the fleece ones from Primark, but as I haven’t been there for 4 months I haven’t been able to purchase any new ones to show you! So I have found an image of a similar pair!

These ones are from the H&M website again, but they are the same thing as the Primark ones! They are just so comfy and are incredible for cold, movie nights at home! Throw in some candles and chocolate, and BOOM! SORTED! Anyway, what do you guys wear to bed? Wherever you are in the world! Let me know! xx

Liebster Award!

So, some lovely bblogger had nominated me for the Liebster Award on here! The only problem was that I was so busy at the time, that I am only now getting around to it and have completely forgot who nominated me – so I’d like to say: I’m sorry, but thank you for asking me to do this!
Here we go then..
What beauty product could you not live without?
I could not live without eyeliner, mainly for appearance-wise. I feel that eyeliner frames me face completely and can transform my ‘morning’ face and make me look slightly decent! My eyeliner of the moment is the KissMe Heroine Make Smooth eyeliner from Japan – it is literally like a sharpie to the eyes! I struggle to get it off with a miscellar water!

What beauty product could you live without?
I could definitely live without stuff like foundation, this is mainly because I only recently started to wear it – yes, it gives me coverage, but I don’t really mind if I don’t wear any! Although, my favourite one so far is definitely Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation!

What is your favourite inspirational quote?
I’m not really a person for quotes, but an inspiration of mine is Anne Frank and I always love her quote:
“Think of all the happiness still around you, and be happy”.

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be in a design studio, either working on pattern design, illustration or web design. I would also love it to be somewhere else other than the UK, I love to travel too much.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I really want to travel around America and Canada – I would also like to live out there swell. I would then like to explore the more ‘hidden’ places of the world!
Although from August onwards, I am going to be living in Australia for 12 months, then visiting NZ, Fiji and America!
If you could meet anyone one person who would it be?
This was a really hard question. I would probably say that I’d love to meet Vivienne Westwood one day – she is such an inspiration and a strong woman. I love her style and how she presents herself!

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as I wanted to become more organised and schedule things out. I thought that blogging would really help with this. Also, I tend to talk and talk about things that my flatmates are really interested in, so I thought that I should show my opinions and thoughts with likeminded people, that have the same interests!

Where do you get most your inspiration for blog posts?
I mainly like to blog about whatever comes from my head. My blog started out as mainly a beauty blog at first, but I have ventured into writing book reviews, film reviews, travel posts, technology.. My blog has basically turned into an ‘all of Zoe’s interests’ kind of theme!

Do you have any other hobbies other than blogging?
I really enjoy reading, illustration and running. Other than them, I really like to travel, see new things and meet new people!

How would you describe your style in 3 words?
I would say that my style isn’t really a particular style – I tend to change a lot and mainly wear certain things for comfort and my body type. I never use to wear dresses or be adventurous with clothing, but now I am completely a dress, tights and boots girl!
I do enjoy wearing a pair of thick leggings with a long tshirt though – comfortable, but not too lazy looking!

What’s? your favourite clothing store?
I don’t think I really have a favourite clothing store, I don’t tend to buy that many clothes now because I have to sort my old clothes out first and being low on money, with no job in my third year! Although, I am starting to grow a rather big love for ASOS, it’s just so easy to return items and they present the clothes really well on the website. I would say that I do like to shop in places like New Look, Urban Outfitters, Topshop (rarely, due to the price, but they do have some nice things every now and then – although quality is sometimes pretty bad in their tshirts). and H&M for the rare basics that I need!
