Hi guys, I'm back with an exciting post to share with you!! Thanks to 5Fashion for sending me so many new Autumn pieces to style :) One being this camel coloured high neck bodycon midi dress. A high neck for me is essential this time of year, a great transition look and highly appropriate with this weather.

I decided to put my own spin on a simple evening dress as I told you on instagram! What I haven't told you yet, is that this is only £5!!!!! I know, unbelievable right! It also comes in various different colours. 

Not only do I have that bargain to share with you guys, but also this belt from New Look is just £12.99 online and instore and is very similar to the sold out belt from ASOS which everyone fell in love with. (Thank me later)

Really hope you liked this post and please leave any comments below as I love to read what you think :)

STYLING CULOTTES











Items marked with a * were gifted 

Culottes* - Inthestyle | Top - Topshop | Sandals* - River Island | Bag - Warehouse

Hi guys, this is just a quick post on how I styled my new pair of white striped culottes from In The Style! I thought I would do something a little different to the formal way of wearing culottes and give them more of a casual day time vibe. Something you could wear to a gig, festival or even a day out shopping. 

I decided to pair these gorgeous monochrome culottes with an oversized band tee from Topshop, some chunky buckled sandals from River Island and an over the shoulder bag. This look is super comfy, and most of you know that is my number one motto when it comes to style. I also really love how versatile culottes are and just how many different ways you can wear them. I'm considering wearing a pair for LFW!!


I really like the stripe detail of these, they add something extra to an while outfit. They also come in black and orange guys, so check out the site if you fancy owning some here!

You can also get 10% off anything over on In The Style with the discount code 'MONIQUE10'

Please let me know in the comment box or on my instagram if you have used or will be using my code & what you are getting :) I would love to know what you guys are buying and loving at the moment.

EVERYDAY SPORTSWEAR CAMPAIGN | NEW LOOK









Sports Bra
Sports Trousers 
Vest Top
FIT Top

Hi guys, so I'm currently working with New Look on their latest Sportswear campaign called 'Everyday Sportswear'.

I got to choose some amazing sportswear pieces from the site to show you guys!! I was honestly really surprised at just how amazing the range was, everything from joggers, hoodies, running trainers and even sports drink bottles. 

My favourite items were a pair of dark grey sports leggings, which I could then mix and match with the three very different styles of gym tops I chose. I picked up one of their sports bras in pale grey, a loose fitting vest top and a more figure hugging sports top.

These are the type of clothes I would personally wear to the gym, something very understated and the aim of the game being 'comfort', oh and nothing too revealing!! New Look had such a variety of choices though, it was extremely hard to select only a few of my favourite items for you guys.

I tend to love a good quality pair of sports leggings, I would say that were my gym staple (if a gym stable exists) I think they really beat going in an ordinary pair of leggings or shorts. They protect your legs from any equipment you use, they are designed to absorb any sweat and they are very comfortable. Perfect if you are like me, and enjoy yoga, sportswear which allows you to be really flexible and easy to move round in.

I have tried many leggings in my time from various sports brand, so I was aprehensive to the style, quality and fit of a high street fashion megastore. I often dislike leggings which come very low at the waist, or have that annoying zip compartment in the back which becomes really uncomfortable to sit down in, do you know which one I mean? These don't have that and are super comfy, I really love that they are high waisted too, they hold you in just right and make you feel really great.

Then I chose a signature sports bra, which is very classic but I love the detail they have gone into and for just £8.99, it is amazing quality. I also like that this sports bra is quite thick, normally sports bras can be very small, making you feel quite uncomfortable to wear on its own, but with all the New Look sports bras, I would feel really comfortable to wear these in the gym without a vest over the top.

The peach 'Believe Achieve' vest comes in various other bright gym-like colours too and is a great motto for the gym and gaining encouragement when looking in the mirror. They have many different slogan tops in the range and I think that really adds something special to the range and something different to your everyday sportswear look.

Last but not least, a tight fitting black top with the slogan 'FIT'. This is for all my girls that love their monochrome fashion and want to transition this into their gym wear. This gym top is super stylish and looks great with grey or black gym leggings. This is a really stylish simple option to wear to the gym and perfect under a hooded jacket.

Let me know what you think to these choices and also your favourites?

CHUPA CHUPS









Top - Primark | Shoes - Topshop | Choker - Forever 21

Hey guys, so I took a few days off to clear my head from social media and begin brainstorming new looks and ideas for my blog and future projects.

I will be making some new tweaks and changes to my blog and I will also be giving my Instagram and Twitter a new feel too. I was wondering whether to start paying more attention to my Facebook page? I didn't really think Facebook was really relevant in the blogging world but it has been receiving quite a few views lately and I'm wondering if any of you fellow bloggers out there find FB successful?

Oh and when all the new changes are done guys, it would be great to know what you think? :)
