February ’18 Style Lookbook

Earlier this month I shot my very first lookbook in Notting Hill. It’s an area of West London that I really love, not only because of the gorgeous pastel-lined streets but because of its vibrant charm. It’s the predominant backdrop of my Instagram feed, a place that I really feel at home in. There’s nowhere quite like it.

Spring/Summer ’18 attire is slowly trickling into the new in sections of my favourite stores so I wanted to create a lookbook showcasing my favourite print dresses that can be styled to wear now, all the way through to Spring. Enjoy!

What To Wear Now: February 2018

So, I’m bringing back the monthly ‘What To Wear Now’ posts, it’s something that I’m going to continue to do every month showing new ways to style looks which are both functional and style focused. I’ve found that I’ve been living in jeans for most of this year and I was getting pretty bored with the same old day-to-day look. This is why I decided to go for a dress, knit and boot combo to mix things up a little.

Why I Love The Mercari App

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is next week?! This year, date night is going to be low-key. I needed to find the perfect outfit for a night in with my boyfriend. After being super spendy over Christmas and going a little mad in the January sales my purse wasn’t exactly bursting at the seams! Therefore, I decided to set up an online store with the Mercari app so that I could declutter my wardrobe and find a new outfit for the 14th without breaking the bank!

Want to know how I sorted an entirely new look for under £35? Well, read on my friend…

Skincare For Stressed Out Skin

Most of us experience stress at some point in our lives whether it’s feeling tired, anxious or overwhelmed. It plays a big part in how the skin looks and feels. For me, it means my skin flares up, breaks out and becomes generally irritated and itchy. The good news is that I’ve found some products that are absolute superstars at calming redness and minimising breakouts.

My First Vlog

Starting a YouTube channel was definitely a daunting prospect but it was one which I felt was a natural extension of my blog. As I mentioned in a recent blog post, Blogging: What I’ve Learnt This Year the main hurdle that needed ‘jumping’ in order to start a blog and now a YouTube channel was self doubt. The time off to reflect on my year over Christmas and being invited to join RewardStyle in December gave me the confidence to take the next step and leap into the world of vlogging!

So, here is my first ever vlog which was voted by my Instagram followers to be a ‘Get To Know Me’ video answering all your questions about me and how I became a blogger. I’m aiming to post a video every week talking all things style, beauty and travel.

Blogging: What I’ve Learnt This …

I’d toyed with the idea of starting a blog long before it launched. For me the biggest hurdle to overcome was putting myself out there and being open to criticism from friends, colleagues and the people who would stumble across my blog. My immediate thoughts were “I’m afraid to fail” and “What if people don’t like it?” and “Am I qualified to write about this type of content?” Essentially I had a lot of self doubt. This all stopped when I had a conversation with one of my best friends about putting those doubts aside and that I was starting this blog for me as it was something I would enjoy and hopefully something that could add value to others too. This time last year I read two brilliant books that really spurred me on to start, the first being Capture Your Style and the other was The Million Dollar Blog – I highly recommend them both if you’re wanting to start a blog or improve your Instagram! Putting my insecurities into a box and reading those two books gave me the oomph to give it a go. A few months later iambecca.com was borne!

The last eight months have by no means been straightforward so I thought i’d share some of my highs and lows and what i’ve learnt this year…
