Eps and Amy additional fashion pieces for spring / summer season. 

A and I love fashion, we can’t resist reviewing clothes. Especially ones that will add key features to our wardrobe.

Spring is finally here so we’re starting to collect cute and stylish clothing that would be exciting to wear when the weather gets hot.

Here our fave tried and tested clothing.


BMJL Women Dress Wrap Surplice V neck Business Body Con Dress

This dress is pretty smart which is perfect for Amy since she works in the office.


StyleDome Women’s Casual Loose Lace Up V Neck Front Cross Off Shoulder Short Sleeve Bandage Blouse Shirt Tops Black M

Omg I love this top that Amy wearing. I love the colour which is vibrant and does give a good glow. The criss cross style is just cute and quirky. The shoulder and the back were perfect as well for showing off some skin and her new shoulder tattoo.


Auxo Women Sexy Print Sleeveless Strap Camisole Casual Summer Beach Vest Tops Mini Swing Dress Red Grid L
This dress is really pretty. It makes Amy that girl next door look. The pattern suits her and emphasises her waistline which is a bonus.


Yieune Short Sleeve Summer T-Shirt Women Plus Size Casual Tops V-Neck Backless Shirt (White XL)

This top I’m wearing is loose / baggy style which is comfortable and the fabric were light and soft against the skin. I loved the back style which is cute and a bit sexy.


Yidarton Women’s Sleeveless Off Shoulder Playsuit Floral Summer Beach Dress (L)

Omg this is my new fave, I fell in love with this playsuit. It has a beautiful style that would complement any body shape. It’s very flattering and pretty with it’s floral pattern and you can tie at the back which gives you a sexy front and v shape open back. This is pretty for showing a bit of your shoulder, bust and back. The quality is amazing and it’s very true to size.

Which one is your favourite piece? Let us know 🙂

Love

Eps And Amy

What You Need When You’re Going To A Festival


Photo Source

Summer really is the best time of the year. If you are a student, you can take some time off and not worry about essays and deadlines for a while. It also gives you a chance to start reading for your next year’s modules. If you have already become ensnared in the world of work, it is the time that you look forward to every single day. When you get up on those cold winter mornings and have to scrape the ice off your windshield, the long, sultry summer evenings are something that you dream of. Whether you just want to kick back and relax at home or you’re planning a trip abroad, you will want to prepare properly.

However, one of the defining experiences of a British summer (despite it likely lasting only a few weeks in which it will rain a couple of times anyway) is going to a festival. While the Glastonbury festival is the biggest event of the year (and certainly the only one that is broadcast on television), there are a lot to choose from. Irrespective of which you choose, from a small, intimate gathering of hardcore fans to being one of an estimated 153,000, there are some things that you will always need.

Here is a list of festival essentials to help you ensure that you are as prepared as possible:

The first part of any festival experience is actually getting to the site. Depending on where you’re going, that may mean getting a coach or driving there yourself. It may be that you’re travelling quite far and you should, therefore, consider investing in something to distract you. An iPod is always good, but since you are going to be partying for at least a couple of days, you should probably think about getting some rest.

Taking a neck pillow is never a bad idea. While it may sound rather dull to just settle down and conserve your energy, one of the things that you’ll find is that travelling to a festival on a coach is not as hectic and loud as you’d expect. While there will likely be a lot of young people with you, they will probably be quite sedate.

You could even think about taking a book but you have to consider that it may potentially get damaged once you get to the festival.

Once you arrive, you will not be heading straight to a stage to see your favourite acts, but going to the campsite to find a good spot to sleep. You will obviously want to take a tent. Opinion is divided on whether you should take a good one though.

Many people invest in a cheap tent and then when they leave the festival, they just leave the tent at the site. However, this is not all that considerate since someone will have to clear it up. While you should leave the place as you found it, you also want to live in reasonable comfort while you are there. You are going to be sleeping on the ground so it will never be as good as your bed at home, but making sure that your tent is good enough to withstand the sometimes capricious British weather is a must.

You should also pick out a good sleeping bag. You may be tempted to get a more modest one, but remember that it will be the only thing keeping you warm and you do not want to get sick and have your weekend spoiled. On the topic of being ill, if you are susceptible, you should double check that you’ve got tablets for hayfever and other allergies.

Not being able to see your favourite musicians because your eyes are watering so much is never a good look.

Once you’ve got everything set up and you know where you’re going to be sleeping, you can start exploring.

However, since there are going to be lots of people walking all over the place, the ground can quickly become rather muddy. Invest in a good pair of wellington boots. It may not pour down with rain the whole time though so you should also get some hiking boots too. They may not seem like the most glamourous, but they are practical.

Going to a festival in shoes that you’d wear on a night out is not going to work because you’ll soon find that you’re rather sore. You need something that will support your feet because you’re going to be spending a lot of time on them.

One of the reasons that a lot of people cannot stand the idea of going to a festival is that you do not have a lot of the comforts on which you usually rely. These may include access to a shower. At bigger festivals, you have to wait for a long time to get into the cubicle, and once you’re there, you may be disappointed to find that since thousands of people have used it before you, it may not be all that clean.

This is why some people choose to take matters into their own hands and wash as effectively as they can with a facecloth in their tent, or use wet wipes. It may not sound appealing but it is the reality of going to a festival. It is better to prepare for it now than be surprised later on. Incidentally, there are often long queues for toilets too so get used to waiting. You’ll be doing it a lot.

For all of the practical considerations that you have to be aware of, festivals are all about having fun. Take a camera so that you can capture what will likely be the best weekend you’ll have all year as well as comfortable clothes that you can dance in until the early hours of the morning.

Since you are at a festival, you cannot go down to the shops if you want something to eat, so take some extra cash to get something there. If you drink, you should also think about taking some of your own since it can be quite expensive.

The most important thing though is to enjoy it. It is a rite of passage at this point and you do not want to miss out.

Affordable alternatives for spring trends

While waiting for my car service on Saturday (3 hours!!) I decided to kill some time by reading a magazine, now I’m not normally one to buy magazines, I think they are a waste of money. But I quite enjoyed flicking through Marie Claire (April 2017 edition) and looking at their suggestions for spring fashion trends. 


Marie Claire is predicting that trend for spring/summer is going to be:

  • Metallic 
  • Check
  • Asymmetric hem lines and
  • Bold colours and patterns 

One thing I did not like, however, was the price tags suggested in these articles: £220 for a top, £70 for a blouse, £79 for a skirt and £590 for a pair of sandals…so I have decided to share some better priced alternatives for those of us who are not millionaires…

Metallic 


Metallic cold shoulder top, £8.99 from select


Metallic jacket, £29.99 from NewLook

Checked


This gorgeous checked dress is only £22 from NewLook


Checked shirt, only £14 from Tesco F&F

Asymmetric Hems


This beautiful dress is only £16 from Forever21


Asymmetric skirt, £18 from Tesco F&F

Bold Colours and Prints


Bright and bold yellow crop top, only £10.99 from Forever21


£5.99 for this skater dress, from Select

I love these outfit ideas, they are so lovely.

How to play with playsuit? 

Playsuit may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it takes bravery to wear them especially when it comes to toiletting lol

I’m not a fashion expert but for me I love trying different things by just fitting them even though I’m not sure about it. I think the best way to have fun on clothes is by playing around and just trying anything even though it’s not your taste or style as it may surprise you that it can look good on you. Some people may not be comfortable wearing something like playsuits but it’s fun. Here are some of my playing moment with my playsuit lol 


I’m trying to copy cat the model lol 

This looks perfect on holiday, so comfy and relax to wear plus looking stylish and beautiful with its floral. 


I love this denim coloured playsuit so pretty and perfect to match with a brightly coloured cardi for a relaxing stroll in the beach or cycling. 


Floral playsuit with belt is very pretty and match with a satchel or messenger style bag. 


Strappy playsuit is just as lovely and you can even turn them strapless if the strap are removable.


This one is just as pretty 


This playsuit has frills style and one shoulder tie and also at the waist which looks stylish either in plain or patterned. 


This is my friend wearing Peter fan style playsuit in sleeveless and with Sleeve. You can tell they look equally amazing. 


Bird patterned is very quirky and cute.


Amy is wearing a pinstripe v neck and batwing shoulder playsuit which looks flattering and does complement the body shape. Me wearing a coral peach wrap peplum style playsuit which looks fab as well. 

So, do you have a favourite? You can layer it as well when it’s a bit cold. 


Like this, you can layer it up with leggings and cardi if the playsuit has a patterned on it. 

There you go, just sharing with you how I play different playsuits 🙂

Getting that body confidence back.

It’s been a good few months since Christmas, and perhaps some of those Christmas pounds are still lingering with the January blues and heading back to work and reality. It can be a stressful time, with a lack of motivation for work, socialising and even working out. However, the warmer, happier months are heading this way, and already those beautiful spring evenings are probably putting you in a good mood. The flowers are blooming, and your energy is up, but are you confident yet in your body and are you ready for those impending bikini holidays! Your days of feeling confident can easily come back to you, it’s all about perseverance and of course, that desire to look and feel good, just in time for the holiday season!

Getting back your motivation may not be easy, but you have to start somewhere, and feeling confident in your body, means saying yes to more things, which in turn, allows you to create more memories and stop saying no to things. Firstly, try to stop comparing your body to others. It’s a common problem that many of us have and it’s ruining your confidence and making you feel more miserable. 

Every body is different, and this is based on genetics, lifestyle factors and much more. We all come in different shapes and sizes, and you may be surprised at how many other people may envy your body, even if you’re feeling miserable about it! Your weight and height should be evenly spaced out, which is why we measure our BMI. You can do this online easily with a calculator based on your weight and height. 

Most of the time, we feel we need to tone up a little bit more, rather than losing weight. Drastic weight loss is never good and it’s something that we can easily get sucked into by reading the gossip magazines and seeing tons of airbrushed models! 

Start by getting into a routine, and this does not mean having to pay a hefty gym membership, but rather taking a brisk walk on a morning, or an evening stroll, just staying active by walking can be very beneficial to your bodily cycles. 

Why not try cycling, or perhaps even swimming which is a fabulous full body workout without a huge strain on you physically. Start eating your treats in moderation and plan your meals, which is good for you mentally and also lighter on your wallet. 

You don’t waste as much food! Create some healthy juices to start the day! By starting your diet early in spring, by the time those beautiful summer days roll around, you’ll be seeing the results; and before long, you’ll be feeling confident to wear those sassy luxury swimwear pieces again that you can find at knicker locker

Often women feel a little happier with a tan. Fake tan can be just as good as a natural one if you find the right one for you. Try a gradual tanner if you’re worried about any orange streaks, and then it’s a more gradual and natural process and can really make you feel happier in your own skin. 

Get your notepads at the ready and start planning, get ahead of the game, and feel more confident again!
