2nroo40Hey lovelies! What new post do I have for you today, then? A guest post featuring the lovely Chelsea from http://www.throughchelseaseyes.com/! I decided to contact Chelsea, because of her amazing dedication to her blog, and because her blog is just basically one of the most inspiring blogs that I read, so read on for the lovely interview!

1) Why did you start your blog, and did anyone inspire you?

I started my blog because I suffer from really bad migraines, and was getting stuck in a little bit of a rut. I was feeling rubbish and had nothing positive to focus my time on. 

After spending so long reading other people’s amazing blogs, and loving their confidence and just the whole feel of blogs; One night i just thought ‘what the heck’ and set my mind to it, and Through Chelsea’s Eyes was born! 

2) What do you do other than blogging?

I work part time as a clerical assistant in a car garage! – Glamorous huh?! 

3) What’s been the best experience that you’ve had during your time blogging?

Oh gosh, there’s been so many things I’ve loved about it! I think the main experiences which stand out, is when I went to the Benefit event in Liverpool, and also meeting all my blogging friends, as I’ve made so many and I love them all! Especially my friend Tash from itssimplybeauty.com! She drove the very long drive to see me, and I just love her! 

4) Do you have any people/things that inspire you?

Lots of things inspire me, but I think photography is the main thing. I really love to take pretty pictures and I hope to keep learning and getting better at capturing those moments!

5) What camera do you use?

I use a canon 600d with a 50mm lens, which I got as a Christmas present – Super lucky! 

6) What’s your favourite and essential item of make-up you think everyone should have?

I love mascara! I think a good mascara can solve any make up dilemma, as I love how it just opens up your eyes 🙂 

7) Do you have any favourite make-up artists?

I have so many favourite make up brands! MAC, Laura Mercier, YSL, and more recently I’ve dipped my toes into NARS, so I’m loving them too! There’s just so many good brands, although I do love drug store brands like L’Oreal, Rimmel and Barry M! 

8) Which places do you often shop at for make-up?

I love to shop at Selfridges for make up. It just makes me feel all posh! But I’m not too bothered where I shop as long as they have what I need. 

9) If you could steal anyone’s make-up bag, who’s would you steal? 

I would love to steal Tanya Burr’s! Her make up is always flawless and her youtube looks are just effortless, so I would love to steal hers if she wouldn’t mind…Or instead of steal, let’s say if she was giving it away…I would be first in the queue!

Hey lovelies! On Sunday I went on a lovely walk around the countryside with one of my friends, so that we could have a big photography session! As you may know already, I love photography, and sometimes venture out with my camera to snap some nice pics of my friends when they ask me for a little photography session! I also sneakily asked for a few pics of outfit, as this is one of my new dresses from this swish thing that I keep talking about! I found so much there! If there are any swishes or clothes swaps taking place near you, please jump at the opportunity to go, even though it may sound a bit weird, but seriously look through the piles of clothes and clothes racks, and I’m sure you’ll find a few (or a LOT) of nice pieces! Anyway, I got a bit off topic, so yeah, this is me awkwardly looking at buttercups on a lovely sunny day, looking a bit like Alice with my bow and cute outfit (don’t forget those awesome brogues my loves). So anyway, off I hop, and be sure to check my blog out tomorrow for my next post!

2jc649sHey lovelies! I have a nice little post for you today, as it features an amazing blogger, who you most probably know…Maddie from http://maddie-elizabeth.blogspot.co.uk/! She has the most amazing style, so I knew that her and her blog would just HAVE to be featured! Read on for the lovely interview.

1.Why did you start your blog, and did anyone inspire you?

I’d been reading blogs for a good few years before I plucked up the courage to start my own, as I’d been inspired by so many, especially Lily Melrose at http://www.llymlrs.com. Her dedication really shows through in her blog.

2.What do you do other than blogging?

I’m a uni student in my final year studying marketing and advertising, so currently my life is spent in the library revising for exams…Not very glamorous at all.

3.What’s been the best experience that you’ve had during your time blogging?

Travel Supermarket gave me the opportunity to go to bootcamp which has to be one of my best experiences, meeting some amazing like minded girls and learning some amazing skills! An opportunity I never would of had before. Also being shortlisted for the Company blog awards has been pretty surreal.

4.Do you have any people/things that inspire you?

People on the street and magazines, but mainly my flatmates. I’m lucky to live with 5 amazing girls with amazing style, and it helps that we’re all a similar size! It’s like an endless supply of clothes.

5.What camera do you use?

Canon 1100d.

6.How would you describe your style?

My style changes on my mood, I never quite know how to describe it. It can go from girlie to grunge within a day, so I suppose you could call it ‘girlie grunge’. As long as I like something though, I’ll wear it.

7.What’s your favourite and essential item of clothing/accessory you think everyone should have?

Oh this is a hard one, I’d say a good pair of jeans and a little black dress. If you have the right shape jeans for your figure I think they can really make an outfit, and also a little black dress is always handy to have in your closet, mine is a go to whenever I’m having an evening wardrobe crisis.

8.Do you have any favourite designers?

I’m such a high street girl but I’m loving Missoni’s classic prints at the minute.

9.Which places do you often shop at?

Topshop, H&M and Primark are my go to stores, but I’m also a big online shopper though eBay and Miss Guided, which are current favourites. 

10.If you could steal anyone’s wardrobe, who’s would you steal?
It w
ould have to be the Olsen twins. These girls can seriously do no wrong when it comes to fashion!

Hey lovelies! I thought I’d show you some pictures of my outfit from Saturday that my friend from Megan from mynamesmegan.blogspot.co.uk took in the gorgeous sun! I recently bought these spotty tights, my vest top and skater skirt whilst shopping with all my girl mates, which was so much fun, and I had a great time. I think all these pieces paired together gives off a cute and girly vibe, but is also toughened up by the converse and denim jacket! I actually got this jacket from a swish recently too, and it was such a great find, because it’s also really stretchy and  oversized, which is definitely what I look for in great denim jackets! Anyway, I hope you’re having a lovely day, even though it looks really miserable and grey outside my window…

IMAG1698Hey lovelies! Today I’m going to do a post on just a little OOTD that I was meant to share with you a while back when I went to London for the day! I don’t know why I haven’t shared this with you before now, but I thought it was better late than never! As I was going to London, I decided that my outfit should be quite simple, but very chic with a cute Beatles tee from H&M, a leather jacket from New Look and my trusty New Look jeans! I had a great day out, just chilling with my family and visiting all the nice museums!

I also thought that I’d share with you last week’s instagram…And ok, I seriously took, like, no photos last week, because it was such a hectic week with exams and the end of school and everything, but I thought that I might as well show you the pictures! Feel free to follow my instagram: @simplytallulah

Hey lovelies! So the sun has finally started to peep through the clouds…Well, kinda…But anyway, as it’s now basically the half term holidays, we need to start getting our mitts on those sunnies when we head out the door! I’ve styled two of my favourite pairs of sunnies that I’ve recently found with a few outfits, just to get you thinking of how you can style your sunnies! And obviously it won’t be THAT hot or warm at the moment (come on, it’s England), but the sun always seems to blind me when I go out the door, so yeah, but there will be jumpers and booties in this post, because of that fact!

PicMonkey CollagecThis first outfit occurs of just a cute purple Monokeros Knitted Jumper from iheartdropdead.com with cute motif unicorns that are printed around the jumper. It seems very light, which is perfect for getting into summer, and paired with one of these Metal Vintage Medium Retro Circle Round Artist Musician Sunglassess from ebay, it gives off a very edgy and retro feel! I also love these Damsel Cross Spike Boots from nastygal.com! Ahhh, in love!

PicMonkey CollageThis next outfit is such a cutesy girly look, but with a fierce edge, giving off a cute rebellious vibe…Too many words. And it starts off with this rainbow Color Block Lambswool Sweater by Chic+ from chicwish.com, which reminds me of candyfloss and circuses…Anyone else? Rounded off with these Sarah Chunky Round Sunglasses from topshop.com and Leela Platform Shoe Boots in Black from daisystreet.co.uk, it’s just perfect!

I hope you liked these outfits, and it gave you some ideas and inspiration for some great looks!

Tallulah xoxo
