Life at REED!

So this time last week I was in the Cotswolds staying at a stunning Manor House. Reason for this was because I was away on a 3 day course for my apprenticeship through REED Specialist Recruitment.

Met Gala 2018 - My favourite outfits!

So last week was that time of the year again where we all become fashion critics to the oh so glamours Met Gala event. If you've been following my blog, you would've seen I've shared my favourites from this event for the last 2 years! I'm a lover of fashion so it's only right to share my thoughts.

This time last weekend it was a sunny bank holiday weekend here in the UK! The weather so far this year has been an absolute mess, from heaps of snow, floods of rain and now finally the sun has decided to come out and say hey. I love how the sun instantly uplifts people's mood, it's good vibes all round. Although my hayfever has now arrived and heat rash but let me not start complaining lol.

I had met up with one of my good friends who I've known since secondary school. I had not seen him since last year so we were in need of a catch up and of course some outfit photos. I've been wanting to introduce him to my blog for a while now because I absolutely love his style. He can make the most simple outfit look so good, it's effortless for him. 

So guys.. say hello to Hamza! 

We went to the park near our town and decided to take some photos here. The scenery was lovely of course but we wanted to keep everything quite simple.

What I loved about his outfit was the pop of colour from his shoes and the denim jacket tied around the waist. Anyone can wear jeans and a t-shirt but the way you make it your own is what makes someone stand out.

Hamza has studied fashion at university, worked for places such as Christian Louboutin and Dior so he is a real lover of fashion and style. 

My outfit was quite simple too. I bought these trousers as part of a two piece from Zara, the top is from New Look and I actually preferred how the trousers looked with this top compared to the actual two piece. 

I really want to invest in more summer trousers such as culottes as they are so comfortable! My shoes are from Gap, they are actually my mum's (I've been raiding her wardrobe a lot lately). These sandals are the perfect addition to complete a simple summer outfit. The sunglasses are actually Hamza's Ray Bans which he so kindly lent me. I've been wanting to invest in a pair of my own but it's been good having these to wear for now lol.

I'll definitely be doing more outfit collaborations with Hamza, I know he has a lot of outfit ideas he'd also love to share. I'm still trying to encourage him to get his own blog as I really feel like he should be showing of his style! 

Love Sham x

Taking Time Out..

Mental health is something very important to me and to many others too. For those who know me or have read my post on Mental Health Awareness before will know that I suffer from anxiety and went through depression a few years ago. Since the beginning of this year I have been dealing with a lot of personal issues going on in my life and my anxiety has been tested several times.
