Simple elegant wedding hair styles for long hair

Here are some of our fave gorgeous, relaxed wedding day hair styles for long hair - we love the simple elegance of a hair comb, and the laid back glamour of a bohemian tousled plait.

Top ten designer and high street headbands for autumn and winter

Headbands and turban hairbands not only super trendy at the moment, they are also the perfect saviours for less-than perfect hair days and can dress up an otherwise plain outfit.

I bought this pink toucan embroidered headband from Anthropologie earlier this year and have worn it with so many varied outfits - I love it!

With winter on our doorstep here’s my pick of ten of the best designer and high street headbands to take you through autumn and the festive season 2018.

I’ve picked a selection of turbans, turban headbands, pearl hairbands and leopard print hairbands from Anthropologie, ASOS and Shopbop - there is a headband to suit any budget!

Anthropolgie sale 2018 - top picks!

Everyday Abby Anthropologie embroidered kimono

Since I started my self-imposed shopping ban (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know why!) I now very rarely look at online shops.

However yesterday I was stopped in my Instagram-scrolling tracks by this image from @everyday_abby - she had just bought this Anthro embroidered Dala jacket on sale and OMG I was in LOVE!

I went directly to the website and contemplated buying it for a good ten minutes or so. In the end I managed to restrain myself, although I am still very much in love with it!

In the meantime, I nosed through the rest of the Anthro sale, and here are my top picks!

So now you know my latest fashion crush, what’s yours?

Mums Handmade HeartMade Knitted Denim Coat - winter crush!I

mumshandmade_heartmade.jpg

I’m sure you’ve all seen the Mums Handmade chunky knitted cardigans that swarmed over Instagram this year and every effortlessly chic blogger was photographed wearing?!

Well I am now absolutely in LOVE with their latest creation, the Mums Handmade HeartMade knitted denim jacket.

I always LOVE denim - denim shirts, denim jackets, and of course denim jeans (duh). I’m a fan of wearing denim with a great pair of heels, a cool handbag and a colourful cuff or necklace, and so this jacket would slide itself perfectly into my wardrobe.

I’d wear it with a simple black top, skinny jeans and high heels, and it would keep me super cosy all through the upcoming winter….ahh.

Available at mumshandmade.com.

What’s your latest fashion crush?

Brighton Pier photoshoot collab with Colourbloc Photography

Shh by sadie Brighton pier funfair colourbloc photography

On my recent trip to Brighton I was thrilled to meet with Clare from Colourbloc Photography for a little impromptu photoshoot on Brighton Pier.

Clare is a talented commercial photographer who loves bright colour as much as I do, and so we had a lot of fun dashing around the funfair looking for inspiration!

My favourite ride was the carousel, and I did get a couple of odd glances whilst clambering up onto the ponies, bracelets raised high (all in the name of photography!).

Clare was so friendly we spent as much time chatting as we did frolicking around fairground rides. She's an experienced photographer who has an eye for colour, composition and carousel pony shots ;-)

You can check out our photos below, and see more of Clare's photography on her Colourbloc website and Instagram.

I enjoyed it so much that I want to do it all again!

Yuzefi Pink Asher Leather Box Bag - gimme all the bags!

Luxe British designer brand Yuzefi is highly sought after for its meticulously handcrafted leather work and simple elegant style.

A personal favourite of mine is the pink Asher leather box bag - available at Browns. With a choice of two straps the bag is as versatile as it is beautiful. 

The pastel pink would look gorgeous with washed out blue denim and a simple white tee. Definitely on my wish list!

Coping with the British summer heatwave!

Hey there peeps!

Well this summer has been a scorcher so far, and to be honest I've struggled with the temperature and have ended up wearing the same three strappy dresses on repeat a lot of the time! (This dress is two of them - I have it in plain black and navy polkadot. You can dress it up or down so many ways, with heels or flip flops, with or without a belt...)

My feet are also cut to bits from different sandals rubbing me in the heat, so I've had to wear my flip flops a lot. I'm still not complaining about the weather, though, it's just taken some adjustments for me to get used to it!

So to mix things up and add a bit of personality to the same-old strappy dresses, I've been wearing a lot of colourful bracelets and handbags - as you can see here! They also make me happy just looking at them - I love colourful accessories :-D

What are your summer essentials?
Let me know how you've been surviving this heat by leaving a comment below  :-)

Keep cool and colourful!

Pink Furla bags - 10 of the best

It's no secret that I love pink, I love handbags, and so it's surely no shock that I've been drooling over these beautifully pink Furla bags recently. There are so many different shades of pink that I'm having a hard time choosing a favourite!

Bags, like jewellery and shoes, are one of my favourite ways of expressing my personality, adding fun and colour to an outfit. I don't think I'll ever have too many bags!

I have several mini bags and at first I found it difficult to get used to squeezing my belongings into them, but now I've got the knack of only taking the actual essentials, it's surprising how much you can actually fit in a mini bag!

Here are some of my fave pink Furla bags (including minis) - which do you prefer?

Toucan embroidered headband by Anthropologie - Sadie's style

anthropologie toucan headband

On a belated-birthday weekend away in Bath I experienced my very first visit to an Anthropologie store. Having lived in New Zealand for so long, I think I missed the Anthro-buzz when it became popular in the UK. Now I'm HOOKED! 

I treated myself to a delightfully pink embroidered toucan headband by Namrata Joshipura. I am in LOVE with it and already want another one!

Fashion editorial RIPPLE in beauNU magazine, June 2018

You may remember my post about the fashion editorial shoot I'd been involved with back in April - well now I can share with you the published photographs!

The shoot was a delightfully colourful resort theme, at the gorgeous Grand Hotel in Torquay. Photographer Emma Barrow directed the shoot, and we collaborated with hair, makeup and jewels to complement her vision.

We used a combination of new and best selling Shh jewels, and my favourite shot is the yellow swimsuit with blue fluffy jacket and layers of necklaces - if you can think of an occasion when it would be suitable for me to wear this please let me know ASAP ;-)

Below are the published images from beauNU magazine - I'll be sharing more images and BTS pix taken by Doble Photography soon!

Resort style fashion editorial photoshoot number two - behind the scenes!

the grand hotel torquay Devon photoshoot location

After another very early morning, I was also recently involved in a shoot with an absolute dream team at The Grand Hotel in Torquay. The images are also under wraps for the time being, but you can get a behind the scenes peek below.

The Grand Hotel was stunning - the view from the pool area felt like you could have been in LA - with a slighter colder climate of course! A beautiful large Victorian hotel, it's located right on the seafront. The staff couldn't have been more hospitable - and even fed us lunch while we were working! I'm definitely returning to try their al fresco summer dining by the poolside.

Hot pink embellished hoodie by Dakota Rae Dust - currently loving!

It's no secret that I love colourful, sparkly, things, and so when I discovered Dakota Rae Dust on Instagram I was immediately smitten.

From her Bristol studio Bec creates hand embellished wearable goods using bold vinyl prints and vintage and preloved textiles - sweaters, earrings, purses, rosettes. All with a  a heavy dose of colour (I think she shares my love of PINK!) and a smattering of sparkle.

I loved the style of her hand embellished sweaters and Bec created a custom oversized hoodie for me with her fluro pink and orange design. I love it, it's perfect for days when you want to feel comfortable but still fun and colourful. I'm already eyeing up my next hoodie!

Check out Dakota Rae Dust here and Bec's Instagram here.
