My Week In Pictures #16

Well hello again, I apologise for having been a bit MIA as of late. I could blame it on the fact that I’ve been really busy (which I have, honest!) but the truth is I appear to be suffering from a case of bloggers block. A general lack of inspiration has led to me writing fewer posts. However, on the flip side I’ve really been enjoying filming videos for my YouTube Channelso if anyone out there has by any chance missed me at all, there’s plenty of content over there for you to have a peek at!

I do plan on getting my blogging act together though, there’s been a few new beauty bits that I’ve been enjoying recently that I’m exited to share with you, so hopefully writing about those will give me a kick start!
Now on to the interesting stuff, I went on a little trip to London with my boyfriend Gavin recently to see family, which was really lovely. We had drinks in the sun, went to numerous museums (geeky couple alert!) and as it was Gavin’s first time in London that didn’t involve work, we did a lot of sight seeing.
Anyway, I won't ramble on any longer, here is a collection of my most recent snaps. To see more, you can view my full Instagram profile here - @katesbeautystation.

My Morning Routine - Video

This week on my YouTube Channel I shared with you my morning routine. This involved me taking you around with me while I show you all the things I do from the moment I wake up to when I leave the house, although this was filmed on a weekend; so is a particularly relaxed morning! I don’t sit around in my pyjamas for quite as long on a week day, promise!
I hope you enjoy this video, do hit the ‘like’ button to let me know if you did and to be informed of when I upload new videos be sure to subscribe to my channel!

Hippie Chic - The Head Chain

I’m a total hippie chick at heart and although I don’t express it through what I wear a whole lot, I do enjoy sporting a boho inspired look every now and again; especially during the summer time. I recently bought this head chain from Miss Selfridge which I spotted in the sale for £5.50 reduced from £12.50 and thought ‘bargain, I’ll be having that!’
I’m an avid accessory lover as I feel they have the ability to transform any outfit. The head chain is a piece that provides an instant and easy way to achieve a bohemian element to your look without having to go and splash out on new clothes and a hundred friendship bracelets. I wear this both during the day, dressed down with a simple maxi dress and my ray bans and I also like to glam it up on a night time with a dark smoky eye, a nude lip and a pair of heels. I like my clothes and accessories to be versatile, i.e. easy to wear as part of different outfits for different looks and the head chain is a piece that provides this. So, if you’re after an instant hippie chic overhaul, look no further; hippie is the new black and head chains are everywhere at the moment!
