Style Icon: Suki Waterhouse

Suki Waterhouse is a successful British model. She firs began modelling when she was 16 and has modelled for M&S, Coast, H&M and most recently the face of Burberry. I think she makes a great model as she looks really endearing but fierce!

Check out a few of the self-confessed tomboy’s pics below for some style inspiration.

BRITAIN’S BEST BIKINIS

It is not even mid august yet but everyone (all the high-street shops) seem to have gone sour in the UK, shifting their A/W 2014 stuff to the front. I demand that we realise that summer is still here (even if we have had a mini hurricane and loads of rain over the last few days). I am sure the sun will come back out. *FINGERS CROSSED*

Anyway to excite us all that the sun will come back here are some of my fave bikinis from British Retailers.

NEW BALANCE TRAINERS

I have an obsession with New Balance trainers! They just look so cool and chic! And they go with pretty much every outfit. I am definitely saving up to get a pair of my own! Also I love that they come in so many different colour combos = beaut!

Note: I am not sure how good they are for doing actual exercise, but seen as I don’t this often should be ok for me. 🙂 Haha

 

 

 

 

 

Why I am very hard to shop with…

I have to admit, I love meeting up with friends for a coffee, to go to a nice restaurant or for a night out but when it comes to shopping I definitely prefer to go alone. This is because when I am shopping I almost go into hunter mode. Like a hunter, hunting for its prey I am a shopaholic hunting for the best items in the shop. For that reason I tend to wander around the shop – I may do a quick scan and then analyse each section specifically or I might dive straight for the make-up section. Generally, I am anything but systematic about how I shop and therefore I find it hard to shop with other people. There. Confession Done.

Anyway I was coincidentally shopping with my friend the other day (not my idea, i was late so I decided not to quarrel) and we were in H&M. Over the years I have generally been put off  H&M i thought the quality was alright but the style was boring and slightly outdated. However when I visited this H&M store a few days ago most of the stuff seemed to be quite good. I spotted a few smart long dresses and this weird sea green and yellow collection that I was seemingly fixated on. However, like most people who going shopping post-Christmas/New Years my friend was all about the Sales. Sidenote -> I have noticed that recently I can’t really be asked for the Sale section because it is always:

1) messy

2) cramped

3) hard to find your size and hard to restrain yourself from buying stuff just because its cheap

3) generally unpleasant

This is also why I don’t particularly like shopping in TK Maxx. So I kind of gave up trying to shop for myself that day and casually followed her around as we chatted away.

DUNGAREES

I HAVE HOPE.

 

Hope that one day I will find the perfect dungarees for me. *cries silently*

I absolutely adore dungarees but I can never seem to find some that look great on me. I think it is because I am short (5 ft 1) and they make me look squashed I guess. Anyway here are some of my favs.

ANKARA

This was my first time experimenting with Ankara. This does not refer to the capital of Turkey but instead Ankara is a specific type of material, particularly used in Africa. It was fun but I didn’t have many tools (must get my sewing machine working).
