SS21 Trends: Headscarves

Scarf - Missguided (old, similar here)

We're officially getting into Spring Summer trends on the blog purely because:

a.) I'm living in a tropical country where it's just heat always.

b.) the vibe I'm getting is that people are anticipating brighter days in these difficult ones. 

One trend that I've been seeing and I'm totally into is head scarves. It feels so nostalgic but still fresh and I love it. They're so versatile in what you can do with them; they don't just have to be worn in a bandana or typical headscarf way, you can use them as tops, neckties, wrist ties, belts. They are just a versatile addition to your wardrobe especially for the summer months. I've had this particular Missguided one for a few years and I've used it in my hair multiple different ways. I think it's such a sweet accessory to finish an outfit when you maybe don't have the right jewellery or feel like you need a little extra emphasis. 

Seeing how the trend is growing, I decided to get a few options together for you lovelies if you were interested in trying the style yourself this Spring Summer. Click the images below to shop now.

Birthday Suit: What I Wore


Dress - Custom / Earrings - Atypical / Shoes - Tony Bianco / Bag - Aldo

I officially rang in a new chapter in my life and it's crazy to think how I've gotten here. You know when you're young and you make those life plans, then life completely flips on its head but you're actually grateful for that? That's me right now. 

So I decided to start this new year for me with a business-in-the-front-party-in-the-back situation. My new favourite thing has to be cowl neck or back; they are stunning, flattering and give a simple dress an elegant edge.

Since making custom pieces and sourcing fabric in Sri Lanka is so easy, I got this dress made and it is perfect. However I have also found some alternatives for you to shop here:


Let's just say, a little bit of an open back made me feel very sexy. It's not a style that I've tried until now, so if you haven't either, I suggest you try it. 

So overall my birthday was wonderful and I just wanted to share my outfit on here because I loved it so much! Hoping you would too! I also want to thank everyone for all the wonderful wishes they sent. Here's to a new chapter, may it be the best yet.

Hoping you're staying safe and well!

Lots of love,

The Perfect Valentine's Gifts for Her & Him

Dress: Custom / Earrings - Custom / Red Lip - Fenty Beauty "Uncensored"

Hello February! With this new month brings the day of love, Valentine's. Though love should always be celebrated, the 14th of February gives you the excuse to be an extra bit lovey-dovey and spoil your significant other. So I thought with the year we've all collectively had, you should maybe spoil your love. I've decided to pick 7 perfect luxury gifts for Her and for Him that might just help guide you down the perfect gift route to show someone you love them. Of course, flowers, chocolate, a lovely dinner and quality time are enough but if you're in the market for something extra, I've got you covered. 

HERS

1. J'adore by Dior - One of those classic scents that is vital in a girl's perfume repertoire, and has a little message in the name. 
2. Chloé Eau De Parfum - The scent of this perfume is overwhelmingly beautiful and will make her feel fresh and beautiful. 
3. Swarovski Time Earrings - One of my favourite Swarovski collections at the moment and these earrings are both statement and elegant. 
4. Skims Cozy Collection Robe & Pants - Loungewear is everyone's new best friend and Kim Kardashian West's Skims has the perfect luxe style that might be perfect for her on Valentine's. 
5. La Mer The Soothing Hydration Collection - Self care is so important, that why not give her indulgence this Valentine's Day with La Mer's best picks in one gift. 
6. Staud Rey Mini Bag - Staud bags are all the rage right now and this one is perfect for her.
7. Chanel Le Crème Main Texture Riche - This hand cream is quite literally viral in the beauty world and is in every girl's handbag, so why not get your lovely lady the same? It's also a fantastic product. 

HIS

1. Stronger With You by Giorgio Armani - This scent smells incredible and if you want your man to smell divine, then I cannot suggest this one more. It's strength will linger in the best way.
2. Gentleman by Givenchy - Another gorgeous scent that is just as good. Again, a great lasting scent and a gorgeous bottle.
3. Bose Sport Earbuds - I've been using Bose products for an age and they don't fail me. The new update of the Sport Earbuds are such a treat, perfect for everything from regular listening to working out.
4. FEAR OF GOD Essentials Hoodie & Sweatpants - I've seen these pieces everywhere, and whilst most of the popular pieces are sold out, this version of the Essentials hoodie & sweatpants are perfect for your man to lounge in.
5. Apple Watch Series 6 - This could be for the gentlemen or the ladies if I'm honest (as with the Bose earbuds), but this one is great if he's looking to keep track of not just the social stuff but the health and fitness side too. With the new Fitness+ option too, the Apple Watch is the perfect addition to his fitness routine. 
6. Maria Black Gold-Plated Necklace - I love a good chain that's subtle but still statement and this one from Maria Black is really gorgeous.
7. Gucci GG Tennis Logo-Embossed Card Holder - Sometimes you just need the essentials and a card holder is perfect for that when you don't want the whole wallet. Gucci does no wrong for me and I can tell you myself that their card holders are incredible quality.

So those are my picks for Valentine's gifts; they are luxury, simple and practical. What have you bought your significant other for Valentine's? Or are you yet to buy? And, what are you expecting, if anything at all? I hope this post inspired you in some way and I'd love to know what gifts you think are perfect. 

Hoping you're staying safe and well!

Lots of Love, 

Emily xx
