The Short Shoe History with Farfetch

I really adore the infographs that Farfetch have created in the past; I've worked with them previously to celebrate the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition which you can see here. I was delighted when they contacted me again to see if I wanted to do another post with them :) 


The infographic and gif show a stunning visual timeline of the evolution of the shoe, displaying an iconic shoe for each decade and the fashion and pop culture icons that championed the shoe during its reign. Original fashion illustrations, created exclusively for The Short Shoe History, have been used to illustrate the evolution of the shoe. The timeline goes back as far as the glamorous Roaring Twenties era right through to the architectural and futuristic shoes of the current day.

So if you want to take a trip through time and shoes, check it out below:




Which shoe is most iconic for you?

Birthday Trip to Bournemouth

I turned 20 last month, so to celebrate Chris and I decided to go down to Bournemouth for the weekend! We both love Bournemouth, and after going two years ago I was so ready to go back! We went from the Friday to the Sunday, and had a really relaxed fun time just exploring the town and being a bit touristy. Because, why not ;)

Here are a couple of snapshots of our weekend:

We couldn't go to Bournemouth without heading down to the beach front for a cocktail at one of my favourite bars- Hot Rocks. You can't beat an Electric Blue cocktail while sitting outside watching the ocean...

We were lucky enough to catch the end of the Bournemouth Food and Drink Festival, which finished that Sunday! Let's just say lunch was sorted for every single day! There was so much to choose from, and a couple of favourites were the chicken and chorizo paella (the best I've ever tasted, the combination of the chorizo and saffron were just incredible) and homemade Italian ice-cream (again, unlike anything I've ever tasted). Also, when a barman creates a strawberry flavoured cider for you, that's pretty something!

Alongside doing things like going up in the huge balloon in the Lower Gardens and exploring the pier, we also visited the Oceanarium. I'd never been before, but I'm a sucker for zoos and aquariums so couldn't resist!

Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser

As you can see, I’m slightly obsessed with Bee Good! I just think they are a fab brand who stand for such a great cause! I’ve been sent products by them to try before like their Cleansing Water, so was super excited when they kindly sent me their Cream Cleanser!

BRAND
I won’t repeat myself too much in this post, so if you want to find out about the brand, you can read about it in this post here

georgie-minter-brown-georgina-frequencies-beauty-blogger-review-bee-good-cleanser-bees-honey-skincare

PACKAGING
As per usual I love the packaging; super clear and helpful, with a secure lid so you can squeeze as much product out as you want.

PRODUCT
Now onto the product itself. This a great cleanser overall- it’s thick formula feels almost like a light face mask! I personally love a product that leaves your skin tingly as it feel like it’s working some kind of magic, and this cleanser gently tingles away on your skin. It removed a day’s worth of makeup without staining the handy muslin cloth that comes with it (although I would suggest hand washing the cloth after each wash to stop germ build up). After I had washed this off, my skin felt super smooth! This definitely one of the benefits of a cream cleanser, and after adding moisturiser, I just couldn’t stop touching my face! The ingredients to thank for this are the wild flower honey, crambe oil and propolis (which is known for its antibacterial qualities- fab for fighting spots) which are all sourced in Britain. After using this for about a week, I really saw the benefits to my skin. It targeted any breakouts I had quickly and effectively and my skin looked a lot brighter!

Overall, another great product by Bee Good! Seriously, can they do no wrong?!?!

NEW VIDEO: Empty Products #2


I'M NOW IN 1080! Bump it up :D
I used a whole load of products up this month, so it seemed silly not to film another empty products video! It's a long one, so grab a cup of tea and sit back!

What products have you used up this month?

University of Westminster Fashion Graduate Runway Show

I always love seeing what comes out of Graduate Fashion Week- it's so great to see the up-and-coming talent with fresh new ideas for the fashion world. I had never seen any work from the University of Westminster before, so when invited to their show I couldn't wait to see what the grads had come up with! 

The BA Fashion Design course at Westminster has exceptional links to the fashion industry, and has produced talent in the likes of Christopher Bailey (Chief Creative Officer at Burberry), Ashley Williams, Stuart Vevers (Coach) and Katie Hillier (Creative Director at Marc by Marc Jacobs). Recent graduates are also working with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Max Mara and J.W. Anderson. 

Here are some of my favourite picks from the grads below:
