Threadsence says goodbye | 10 Times they inspired my style!

10 times Threadsence inspired my personal style

Threadsence says goodbye! Here are 10 times they influenced my personal style

As you may or may not have heard , threadsense is going out of business and everything is final sale! I'm quite sad to see this store go as they were for sure one of my favourite sources for style inspiration!  I discovered their clothing brand back in 2013 when I originally wrote this blog post . I'm updating it now in honor of their final goodbye sale!
Below are my original TOP TEN PICKS from threadsence.com back in 2013, 

I stumbled upon this online website threadsense.com and i'm loving their clothing!they are a modern chic boutique for women , I would say aged 19-29. their clothes are amazing and after browsing the website for a good hour I found 10 outfits I would love to buy!These looks are all taken from their new arrivals! - ME, 2013
10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style 10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style

It's interesting to see how style hasn't really changed in the past three years! . These clothes are still completely wearable today! 

I have put together 10 times threadsense inspired my sense of style over the past three years!!  *THESE IMAGES ARE CURRENT ITEMS in the store inspired by the items I looked at throughout the years. 




  1. When I wanted to update my summer wardrobe!
    Transitioning from Winter to Summer clothes is a serious task! Here are some examples of the kind of looks I went  for!

  2. When I was in a fashion rut after having a baby and all I wanted to wear were oversized sweaters and leggings

    I think every mom goes through this post baby stage. Your body is never what it was before and you just want to cover up!  ( Don't worry it didn't last long)

  3. When I started singing and performing again, I wanted a stage-worthy look!
    I think at this point I had completely ripped open jeans in every colour! lol
    10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style

     
  4. When I moved house. You know ... new house , new things! lol
    This was a pointless shopping time , I wanted a closet full of new clothes so I could make it look like what I see in the weheartit pictures I re-heart every day. I swtiched up my style .. which is actually still my current style , to oversized shirts and high waisted mini skirts. 

  5. When I wanted to get serious about my blogs. I wanted a look to match my mood ! so I ditched the adolescent outfits and went for something more professional . For some reason Rompers Made me feel like a true Fashion blogger! . I'm waayyy over this stage now. 

  6. When I had my first day of Uni
    Meeting new people and first impressions are literally everything!! Of course I wanted some new clothes so for that first week they would think i'm thebomb.com I wore a bodycon maxi dress with a cute hat like this ! 

  7. When I was bored of my style after watching a marathon of Youtubers online
    How on earth these Youtubers can afford to buy these amazing hoards of clothing i'll never understand! Nevertheless, I always want to go on a shopping spree after watching their videos!

    .. needless to say ... what I thought looks super cute on them .. just diddnt look so cute on me!
  8. When I had my first client meeting - Business attire ONLY

    I wore an outfit almost Identical to this . I Picked up an oversized cardi like this from monsoon and I STILL whip it out for client meetings! I've won over every client so far  so it's definitly my lucky charm!
  9. When I wanted some new travel accessories- I found a cute backpack and a few other fun notebooks to inspire my travels!
    10 times Threadsense inspired my personal style

  10. When I went to Miami - Yes I sunned it up in MIA , SO OF COURSE that meant new clothes! yay! 
    My body wasn't even remotely ready for a bikini but I was feeling myself and rocked one anyway! Sunhat in toe!

STREAM ALL YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOWS AND MOVIES ONLINE FOR FREE!



HOW TO STREAM ALL YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOWS AND MOVIES ONLINE FOR FREE!
 

SS GUIDE TO CAN'T MISS TV SHOWS!

I'm a TV fanatic! I love the idea of being able to stream a show from start to finish, knowing the FULL story! Yes I'm one of those people who get completely emotionally invested in the characters lives and cry when they die!  So much that i've had to make a schedule in my google calendar for the current tv shows so I can stay up to date. There is nothing better than binge watching an entire season of a TV show, hey that's why Netflix is so popular!

I have an even better cheaper solution for you . So cheap that the only thing you will be paying for is your internet connection . NOTHING MORE.

As college/uni students  or budget friendly gals, we need to keep the bank accounts high and spending down. Finding easy solutions to forking out monthly payments to cable or Netflix is just not where it's at!

My ultimate one stop shop for TV is PUTLOCKER! (Bare in mind  they change their url quite often, and i'm not 100% positive how legal this website is , so do not say Abbi sent you ..lol )

Putlocker has EVERYTHING you need to keep your tv life Alive

TOP TIPS FOR AVOIDING A POP UP!

  • Use google chrome, and get a pop up blocker.  I personally like to use incognito mode along with turning on my pop up blocker
  • BOOKMARK  the season you are currently on to avoid having to go through loads of pages, or hitting the search bar that triggers a pop up  (or alternatively you can bookmark this page!)

STEP BY STEP 

  1. Go to putlocker.is and hit the search bar  ( a pop up will come up or open a new page if you don't have a good blocker, close the pop up or new page straight away ) 
  2. Type in the show you are looking for and hit search
  3. Click on the show you searched for ( YOU MAY GET ANOTHER POP UP HERE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BLOCKER) 


  4. NEXT you will get to a page that lists all the episodes. Click the episode you would like to watch 
  5. Once you get to this page scroll down and you will see the video . BEWARE ! DO NOT CLICK ON THE GREEN BUTTON THAT SAYS PLAY NOW! This is an AD . I repeat , do not click on it ! 

  6. Click on the play button on your video . YOU WILL GET A POP UP HERE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BLOCKER! Just ignore anything it says because its FAKE and NOT TRUE no matter what it tells you . Close the pop up and click back on the tab that has this page . You may have to do this twice. 
  7. AND THATS IT! YOUR VIDEO SHOULD PLAY NOW for totally FREE 

    SO EASY! I'd much rather take a few seconds to close some popups than pay almost £10 a month for NETFLIX or HULU
NEW EPISODES ARE ADDED WITHIN 3-24hours after it airs on tv! 


TO TOP IT OFF IV'E PUT TOGETHER A STARTER GUIDE OF TV SHOWS TO GET YOU GOING THROUGH THE SUMMER... and probably the rest of the year!!
These are all shows I have watched and are completely up to date with.

MAYA HAIRCARE Full Review and Demo

MAYA HAIRCARE Full Review and Demo

MAYA HAIRCARE Review and Demo

I recently picked up this Styling Créme by the brand MAYA haircare. I met with the owner herself at the Beauty UK show where we chatted about the brand and the benefits. She instantly sold me and I knew I had to try it out for my daughters hair. I'm constantly looking for new products and I think i've tried about 20 different products in her hair . Some work great but don't last all day and some just don't work at all.

HAIRCARE STEPS TO SUCCESS
1. I washed her hair with our typical olive oil shampoo and conditioner
2. Before letting it dry I sectioned off her hair  into four and applied the product thoroughly through each strand .

The instructions say to use a PEA sized amount, but her hair literally soaks up moisture like a sponge. After washing it her hair was 40% dry before even towel drying it! so a pea sized amount just wasn't an option . I think I ended up using about 1/4 of the bottle throughout her hair so i think this bottle will only get me through 2-3 washes




Watch the video above to see her hair from wet to dry using the product !

3. I let her hair air dry which took about two hours .

4. Here is her hair when 90% dry . You can see there is major shrinkage which I was hoping wouldn't happen, but was completely expected.



SUPER SOFT!
Her hair is very very soft, softer than any other product i've used before , and 5 hours later it's still very soft .... did I mention its crazy soft?

DEFINED CURLS
I love how defined the curls are , although I would have preferred it to be more defined , but as I continue to use it I may come up with some kind of strategy to improve this. I'm positive the type of shampoo and conditioner I used played a major part in the curl definition.


ABOUT THE PRODUCT

SMELL
This product smells great. It's got quite a sweet smell which is perfect. The last thing you need is your hair looking amazing but smells like trash! but not this product, it has a very appealing smell!

PACKAGING DESIGN
As a graphic designer you know I have to comment on the design! I think it looks fantastic! The black and gold gives off an elite and expensive feeling which is great! I want to put quality products in my hair not products that are made up of 90% water! The packaging design does a great job of making it appear expensive! .. not to mention it looks great on my haircare shelf!

PRICE
(introductory) 

520ml Confident Curling Creme £20
250ml Confident Curling Creme £10 (This is the size bottle I have)
55ml Confident Curling Creme £5

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I think the product is a good fit for my daughters hair . I like the curl definition and will surely use it again. If I can find a shampoo and conditioner to reduce frizz that WORKS on her hair, I think this product may become my ultimate GO TO brand.

You can check out the brand over on their website > BECOME MAYA

FIVE Essential Travel Accessories for a perfect flight

FIVE Essential Travel Accessories for a perfect flight

FIVE Essential Travel Accessories for a perfect flight

It's around summer time where school and colleges are ending and everyone goes on vacation. Whenever I travel it can be really hectic getting everything together . My biggest worry is to forget something important ( like my passport!)

So much to organise!  I've been looking particularly for a passport cover that would fit both passports and also a small card/cash wallet that looked cute and chic and can fit in my pocket . I also do not like to spend too much money on these things, I always look for bargains, especially at the outlets.

After searching through Five Designer stores, I struggled to find anything that looked like it was worth it's price tag. That was until I head into KATE SPADE!  I found exactly what I was looking for! I've had this mini wallet and the passport holder for just over 3 years now and it's still going strong!


Before I travel, I make a quick checklist of items that I know i'll need before heading to the airport.

1. PASSPORT HOLDER & LUGGAGE TAGS

An obvious one , but vital to put on the list . Of all the things I may be doing  such as loading up my tablet with a full season of 2 broke girls, or charging every tech device I own incase the plane has no charging port. I sometimes forget to pack my passport! luckily I always remember last minute because of my trusty checklist! PLUS you want to bring your passport in style , show off your personalist, instead of the boring dull brown or blue most passports are. Aside from Kate spade my favourite place to shop for passport holders are Typoshop and SkinnyDip!

My luggage is quite unique, but not as unique as i thought! I thought I was the only one with a pink and white  rolling Guess suitcase, but turns out someone else had the exact suitcase when I travelled to Miami and I almost walked away with someone else's things! If it wasn't for my luggage tag I would have  had a very different holiday! Lately i've been loving sprucing up my suitcase with stickers and cute tags!


2. TRAVEL WALLET 

Foreign money can be very annoying , some places rely heavily on paper money (ahem america) and while over here in Brum we mostly use coins, or just our cards. So I try to make sure I always have a separate coin holder and wallet  for my foreign money. although I have come back from holidays and handed over Quarters as 10p ... (by accident of course and nope i'd didn't get caught! After realising I slowly backed away and then ran haha )

3.TRAVEL SIM CARD

With the millions of things I do on a regular basis , my phone needs to be on,  readily and available for any call. I always pick up a travel sim card  or if i know i'm going to be traveling frequently throughout the year ill get a rolling foreign contract ( I don't recommend this unless you are going to be racking up some serious airline miles!)

4.TECH ACCESSORIES

I cant survive any plane ride without quality tv shows, not the old fluff they put on the planes. I'm an Avid tv watcher and If I don't have the NEXT episode of the tv show i've  been watching i'm going to be pretty annoyed on the plan . Which is why i'll skip tv the week before I travel and load all the latest episodes on my ipad. I wrote about my TOP TRAVEL TECH ESSENTIALS FOR A LONG PLANE RIDE over on my Business blog  < definitely a MUST READ

5. NECK PILLOW

If it's a long plane ride, now i'm talking at least 5-8 hours, then i'll probably run out of shows , or just get tired. so a neck pillow is a must! I've seen people sleeping on the plan with the neck cranked on their shoulder and all that goes through my head , is the pain they are going to feel when they wake up! OWCH! . Primark sells a really comfy neck pillow with a strap you can attach to your luggage. I've had mine for about a year now and it cost me £6 ! MUCH cheaper than anywhere else i've ever been to! Primark never fails!

First Date 15 things to do and not to do

First Date 15 things to do and not to do

First Date?! Here are 15 things to do and not to do

A First date will be hard... especially when you've been out of the dating loop for long time.
Luckily i've compiled 15 pointers to think about before and during your date.

1. If it's a blind date  DO NOT get there early and DO NOT wait at the location staring at every cute guy guy that walks buy hoping that its him.

2. DO go for the bold and wear a bold bright lip color ! The sexy lips will either intimidate him or attract him! You can ween out the losers this way! :-)

3.DO order whatever food you like . DO NOT think that he won't like you just because your pigging out ! lol guys like girls who are real! A side salad as a main course is cute, but also unrealistic! .. unless you actually like side salads as a main course 

4. DO NOT  eat ANYTHING with onion or garlic.

5. If he tells a joke, be sure to laugh but DO NOT laugh like a hyaena.

6.DO NOT bring up any topics relating to old lovers ( its just awkward... seriously just don't got here)

7. DO use your table manners, that means no Burping,Farting, Snorting (unless its involuntary) out loud and DO NOT slouch! (be a lady!... that is unless you're a take me as I am kinda girl , which is also completely fine)

8.DO keep the questions general. DO NOT ask anything overly personal unless he asks you first. 

9. DO NOT allow jealousy to rear its ugly head!  ( you would be surprised at how many girls feel like they can "claim" their date on their first date

10. You may think that you really like this guy but he may not feel the same just yet . so DO NOT act protective or possessive. 

11.DO smile, a lot. 

12. DO brush your teeth before you go out . ( hey some people forget! )

13. If its a blind date and you want to wear heels .. go for a pair that are NOT higher that 4 inches. just incase he's really short! 

14. DO Bring a pair of flats in your bag just incase he spontaneously switches up the date plans to go rock climbing haha !! ( Honestly i'd be pissed if I didn't get rock climbing heads up .. ah but to each is own)

15. If you are NOT interested.. DO NOT make it obvious, DO be polite until the end of the date and let him down gently. 


so gals, if you use these tips you will be sure to have an AMAZING first date!

17 REALLY BAD pickup lines that will send you running for the hills!




I've experienced quite a few bad pickup lines in my lifetime. when you hear them it's that awkward moment when, you don't know if you should laugh or accept the cheezy attempt of a compliment.
Some guys are ruthless and some girls are silly enough to fall for these ridiculous set of lines.
personally I think they are all hilarious.
If you haven't heard them before then TRUST ME YOU ARE LUCKY.
Now you have the opportunity to read 17 of the worst pick up lines i've EVER HEARD.


#1: They call me "coffee" because I grind so fine
#2: Are you Google? Because you're everything I'm searching for.
#3: You must be a pirate, cuz i'm diggin' your chest!
#4: Nice legs, what time do they open?
#5: You must be tired because you've been running through my head all night
#6: Hey girl, what’s up? Guess what? It’s your lucky day. Out of all the girls here, I picked you to talk to
#7: Can I buy you a drink or do you just want the money?
#8: Can I have your phone number? I seem to have lost mine.”
#9: Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk past again?”
#10:
Excuse me; I think you owe me a drink.”[She says, "Why?"] “Because when I saw you from across the room I dropped mine. It was a rum and Coke, and I’m [your name].”
#11: “Is your last name Gillette? Because you’re the best a man can get.”
#12: “Do You Come Here Often?”

#13:"Do you drive a Prius? Because up until now we've been pre-us."
#14: Excuse me, do bras come in size perfect? Because I'd buy that for you. Seriously, what's your cup size?
#15:Our long term relationship starts (looks at watch)....now.
#16:Hello, I'm bisexual. I'd like to BUY you a drink...and then get sexual.
#17:The only STD I have is a sexually transmitted desire...for you.

GUYS WILL NEVER LEARN! 
Any DECENT guy wouldn't dare use any of these on you. 
REMEMBER THAT!... so steer clear! lol
