Whats In My School Bag?

(French connection bag from ASOS)
As the majority of us are quickly approaching the new school year (or have already done so) , I thought it may be useful to give you some ideas of what kinda things you should be carrying in your school bag to help you survive school!

 These are my must have essentials to keep me looking and feeling fresh whilst I am going about my day.

Hand cream: I have  found this cream ridiculously useful throughout the year. Its small packaging allows easy transportation as well as its deeply penetrating formula which leaves your hands super soft and ready to overcome any essay.

Carmex: Especially as we are approaching the colder months , lips balm is almost vital to carry around to prevent dry chapped lips. My favourite is carmex as it leaves your lips tingling fresh as well as moisturized.

Antibacterial wipes: School is a place full of people which may make it a breading ground for bacteria . These wipes come in handy especially when the cleaner forgets to top up the soap in the toilets.

Perfume & deodorant: I always carry around some form of scent just to freshen up when needed. I specifically love this small compacted Ghost perfume as it is very light and easy to carry around.

Note book: This is absolutely vital for those who are prone to getting homework detentions. It allows you to keep track of all homework set in addition to events and reminders. I promise you , you'll never get a detention again...well maybe just 1 or 2.

Reading book: The journey to and from school can get a tad boring especially if you live far away so I like to carry around a reading book with me to read on the bus. Yes you may look like a geek in the corner reading a book in the bus but at the end of the day , its you gaining the knowledge.

Purse: Its always a good idea to carry around some change for things like lunch money and snacks.

Packet of tissues: I don't think I need to explain myself on this one...
Pencil case: A pencil case is key when going to school which some people amusingly forget. I always find having more than one pen very benefiting just in case one runs out and for the less organised pupils. I also take coloured pens just to make my notes a bit more interesting and enjoyable to read.
Watch: This also prevents you from getting detentions as you have no excuse to be late to class!
Phone(s)?: Now your probably thinking "why two phones?" but I have a really good excuse. You know those times in assembly or in the corridor when your phone rings and a teacher is trying to confiscate it? well having two phones allows you to keep your real phone and give the teacher your old phone. (mwhahahaa)  Smart isn't it!
Keys: To prevent me from being locked out of my house after school...again.
There are many more things I'd like to take to school but unfortunately my schoolbag just isn't big enough!  :(
What kind of things do you carry with you?

Shoes-ing Carefully

(Haha shoes-ing, choosing, geddit?)

I love shoes. I work in a shoe shop and naturally, have amassed quite a collection over the past couple of years. Being a size 5/5.5/6 (yeah, it varies a lot) means that I can save money on lots of styles using one nifty little trick...

Summer Sale Haul

Hi Guys,
If you're wondering what I've been doing in the nearly two weeks that I haven't blogged here, head over to www.commerciallyaware.co.uk. It's on the complete opposite end of the spectrum to I Walk in Fashion, but I'm actually quite enjoying researching and blogging on topics that I start off knowing nothing, or very little about. If you know any budding lawyers, please be sure to share Commercially Aware with them!
I thought I'd share some recent sale buys with you today. I've actually bought far too much, but narrowed it down to my favourites.

It's All White

It's All White

I don't know if it's because Wimbledon is upon us (let's not talk about the Other Major Sporting Competition happening at the moment), or because the sun has decided to make an appearance, but all white ensembles have been making a comeback. Here are a few of my favourite pieces I've scoured from across the interwebs...

Thrifty Thursday - FREE BBQ Pulled Pork Lattice from Greggs + More

Firstly, I have to admit, it's difficult to find different thrifty tips tricks and deals each week, so Thrifty Thursdays may have to be a more 'as-and-when' thing, rather than a weekly thing. I hope you don't mind. 

This week however, I have found something BRILLIANT for you - again, courtesy of my beloved 10 Ways.  How would you like a free BBQ Pulled Pork Lattice from Greggs?

Wednesday Wishlist 18/06 - Bloomin' Lovely

Hi Guys,

We've had such lovely weather here in the UK, and there's something about sunshine which pulls me away from my usual uniform of black, white and grey. It started with floral nails, and now I'm finding myself gravitating towards floral print clothing. Here are a few favourites I've collated...Untitled #16

#Showyourface - Selfie-worthy skin all summer long

Selfie-worthy skin all summer long
**Clearasil gives clear skin and confidence fast to flaunt your face!**
Selfies - everyone’s at them. From supermodels to pop stars, Presidents to Prime Ministers, photos of faces are flooding our social media every day. In fact the word ‘Selfie’ has even been added to the Oxford English Dictionary and it was pronounced ‘Word of The Year 2013’ – that’s how huge the self-portrait camera craze has become.
Summer is just around the corner which of course means more sunshine, holidays and festivals. There is no better time to take selfies with your friends enjoying all the fun in the sun!
To celebrate the selfie, on Saturday 21 June between 10am – 4pm, Clearasil is offering you the chance to show your fresh face on a huge screen at Westfield and on the Yahoo website. All you have to do is submit your best selfie from anywhere in the UK with #Showyourface on Twitter, it’s that easy! If you can’t get to Westfield don’t worry as Clearasil will Tweet you the proof that your face was full-screen. There’s also the chance to win one of 10 pairs of VIP tickets to LoveBox Festival where you can take the ultimate summertime selfies.
The most important aspect of a selfie is, of course, your face. Clearasil knows that if you don’t feel good about the appearance of your face, you won’t feel confident about how you look in photo-form either.
Clearasil ULTRA Rapid Action Range gets to work in as little as 4 hours to give you visibly clearer skin and bring out your confidence. The range is scientifically formulated with maximum-strength spot fighting ingredients to start working straight away at removing dirt, oil and bacteria leaving you clear and confident to pose for the camera.
Keep your skin clear and your confidence high this summer with Clearasil – and take the photos to prove it!

Wednesday Wishlist 11/06 - Summer nails

Click below to buy!
I tend to stick to very plain, neutral colours all autumn/winter, with the occasional red. As soon as I get a peek of sunshine however I'm straight in with the bright, vibrant colours. Wearing bright nails can be a great way to 'zhoosh' up a look, and get you in the mood for summer.

Floral Nail Art Tutorial

*kind of...
Hi guys, I've found myself with a lot of spare time since finishing my exams (woop!) so I've been able to dedicate time to things I enjoyed doing before I got sucked into the world of academia. One of those things is nail art I haven't done anything beyond a simple polka dot or stripe pattern for a while now, so I'm a bit rusty, but I hope this attempt at a tutorial will be helpful, or inspire you to come up with something even better.

I've been seeing flared midi skirts a lot recently and I love how they look paired with a crop top, or a shirt buttoned up to the top. They have a cool 50s vibe and I think they're super chic.

Style Crush: Rihanna

Hey guys! Since the last style crush went down so well , I thought I'd do another one.
This week ,I've decided to show you guys how you can dress like Rihanna for the minimal price.
I personally love how Rihanna has such a casual laid-back style that she twists making it come to life. I also respect her bravery to explore bright colours that most of us wouldn't be seen dead in.
So Enjoy!
