I really wanted to give the cut-out boot a go, so I decided to check out Urge to see what they had available. The Sonia boot is comfortable and sleek with the perfect heel height for me (walking everywhere) and wearable with black or blue jeans. They're really easy to throw on with any outfit you have planned plus they add a bit of luxe to your look. Definitely recommended!
I bought these ASOS ripped knee skinny jeans last week not knowing how they'd fit me as usually I need to try jeans on in store. Surprisingly they're really stretchy, fit perfectly and actually sit tight around my ankles so I don't need to roll them up. Pretty happy with that purchase.
And lastly the necklace and holographic wallet are two things that landed in my possession yesterday when out shopping with my bf. The necklace from him when I told him how much I loved it, and the wallet by me.. probably the funnest thing in my bag at the moment.

Everything I'm currently wearing, wanting and loving. My blue jeans are constantly on rotation, I switch between grey & stripe tees, just bought a black bomber jacket, dying for some new Nike shoes, and just discovered the Jeffrey Campbell Lovins flats have been restocked on Shopbop. Finally!

6.30am - Kick starting the day with Clearasil as soon as I wake up
7am - Deciding what to wear. I love colours that compliment my hair colour and skin tone, so I usually go for tops and knits in burgundy, purple, pale pink, white, grey and black.
7.30am - Leaving the house in winter is always tough. I hate stepping out into the cold so layering up is a must.
8am - Out for breakfast with my boyfriend (french toast with strawberries, maple syrup and ricotta cheese)
9am - Catching up on the latest magazines as soon as I get to my desk at work.
11am - Taking behind-the-scenes shots of Kelsey Martinovich at Market HQ's weekly product shoot.
1pm - Selecting new pieces to show on Instagram
4pm - Work meeting discussing marketing ideas, new product coming in, sales and upcoming campaigns. But who can get work done with such a cute pooch on the table?
5pm - Finished work and on the way home. Quick chance to get an outfit shot to use on the blog later.
5.15pm - Decide to get an Instagram outfit shot while I'm at it too...
7pm - Onto the computer to get some blog work done
9pm - Out for a late night chocolate fix at Max Brenners
I was asked by the people at Clearasil to give you guys a look into a day in the life of me, so above is a little insight into what I usually get up to.
I think the way your day begins can have a big impact on how you feel for the rest of the day, so I like to get every day off to a positive start. As soon as I wake up I wash my face with Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Daily Wash. It's really refreshing, and with avocado and Vitamin E it keeps my skin from drying out. I have a bit of a sweet tooth so it's good to know that if I go out for a big breakfast (or dessert) my skin won't break out.
Working full time at online store Market HQ means I'm constantly surrounded by clothes, models, designers, photographers and puppies... lots of puppies. There's always a photoshoot happening, whether it be our weekly MHQ shoot or a lookbook shoot for one of the brands. If I'm not taking behind-the-scenes photos on a shoot, I'll be on the ground flatlaying outfits, finding things to Instagram, at my computer making graphics on Photoshop, doing trend research or looking for new models for the website. There's always lots to do so by the end of a work day I'm pretty worn out.
I like to chill out for a bit when I get home. Make a cup of tea, read a magazine or watch tv. It's then time to get some work done on my own blog - answer the emails that pile up and search for new items to feature, inspirational images or create outfit collages.
Before I go to sleep I wash my face again with Clearasil's Daily Wash (twice a week I use the Scrub). It takes off my make up and leaves me with a clean face so I can wake up the next day ready to go again :)
