Loving You Is Red | Fashion

It was all University students favourite day last week, that’s right, student loan day has been and gone. What better way to celebrate it with buying lots of beautiful clothing?

For those of you who follow my Instagram, you may have noticed the accidental red theme. For some reason, all my recent clothing purchases have all been red in colour. From bags, shoes to jumpers its been all about the red in my wardrobe this season. With Valentine’s day just around the corner, is there a better colour to add to your style?

Here is how I style my red looks:

 

Colourful Jersey style sweats are all the rage right now. Why not try a vintage US College sweat for a unique look? I styled mine with black jeans, block heels, and statement earrings.

I am a huge fan of red shoes at the moment, they can make an outfit from blah to yay! I got these amazing Giorgio Armani for a bargain price of £50 at TK Max. I style mine with a plain black outfit and my Leopard print coat.

I purchased this little red bag from Primark for £6 and these Western style boots from ASOS during their January sales. I tend to wear these pieces with my black Teddy coat from New Look or teamed with polka dots, which is so on trend for Spring 2018.

Another of my Primark buys, this textured bright red jumper cost me only £13. I know Spring is just around the corner, but the February bite is still rife. I team this jumper with jeans, casual trainers, and a nude lip/eye to really make the colour pop.

More red shoes? I told you I am a little bit obsessed at the moment. I got this bold beauties from you guessed, it Primark, for the price of £12. You can also get these in Mustard (which will be my next purchase). You can style these boots with black/blue jeans with a black and white tee to really keep on that Spring trend.

Thank you for reading about my obsession with red. Have an amazing week and happy Valentine’s day.

2017 – A Year In Clothing

2017 has been and gone and a new year is suddenly upon us. Last year has been full of many ups and downs for me. I started my Masters degree at Northumbria, I have met people who will change my life forever and I have left some people behind. 2017 was the year where I really tried to figure myself out, I focused on my weight loss, education and loving myself.

I have come out of 2017 a much more positive person and let’s hope 2018 brings amazing things.

The one thing that has changed over the last couple of years is my style. I have always been very much into my fashion from a young age, I always wanted to look different and quirky. I have said goodbye to vintage and preppy clothing and my style has really come in on its own. I feel happy and confident.

Here is a quick look at some of my favourite looks over 2017.

Spring 2018 – My Picks

The remainder of snow still lies on the ground and the January blues are still in full force. But what better way to get you excited for the smell of freshly cut grass, cute baby lambs, and Daffodils than hitting the high-street shops to check the Spring 2018 fashion?

It may not be time to vacuum pack those cosy knits, but Spring 2018 is just around the corner and it might be the most stylish one yet.

Say goodbye to over-done florals of Springs past, 2018 is all about stripes, bold colours, and sporty chic.

Here are some of my top High-Street Spring 2018 must have styles:

  1. TOPSHOP – Yellow Striped Long Sleeve Crew

This year’s Spring is all about bold colours with a laid-back feel. This look could be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans. Or dress it up with an A-line denim skirt, sock boots, and a stylish beret.

It is no wonder this piece has almost sold out online at Topshop. Get yours here for only £18.

2. ASOS – Double O Waist Belt 

If you have not seen the Gucci ‘Double G’ belt plastered all over your Instagram, then you must live under a rock. Do not want to pay £270 for a belt? Neither do I. ASOS do a belt very similar, you can get the Gucci look without the insane price tag. You can get an even a cheaper ‘Double O’ belt at Primark for just £4!

Team with jeans and a T-shirt tucked in for a casual look or team with a vibrant dress for a dressier feel. Get yours for only £10 Here.

3. River Island – Black & White Polka Dot Playsuit

Spring 2018 is not just about the bolds because black and white never go out of fashion. Another pattern that has been making quite an appearance on the high street this Spring is the polka dot.

Get this in-style Playsuit here for £50

4. New Look – Red Patent Boots

I have been obsessed with red boots for a while and I am happy to see this style is going strong in the Spring.

Bold statement boots can make an outfit go from BLEH to YAY in seconds. It is time to say goodbye to the metallic boot because everyone is loving the bold boot.

Get these colourful beauties here for £29.99

5.  ASOS – Statement Double Drop Tortoiseshell Earrings 

I have been a fan of simple, dainty and understated jewelry for a long time. I have been experimenting with statement earrings as I have a lot of them in the high-street shops lately.  Big and bold earrings can really make an outfit pop, from Tortoiseshell to Tassel earrings the statement earring is in, but who knows, will it be here to stay?

Get your statement earrings here for £8

6. TOPSHOP – Tee & Cake Heart Sketch Face T-Shirt 

Remember the Gucci look-a-like ‘Merci’ T-Shirt by Topshop everyone had last Summer? This T-Shirt is this seasons new must have Instagram top by Topshop. This must have T-Shirt gives all the vibes of popular designer Commes Des Garcons with a bargain price.

Wear this with some colourful athletic style trousers or try tucked in jeans with a bold jacket as a head turner.

You can buy this must have Spring 2018 Tee here for £18


 

So, that is my Spring 2018 favourite list. Now I need to get my next student loan installment so I can get spending.

Thank you for reading and happy shopping.

Edinburgh | Travel | Video

scot

Last weekend I went to visit my best and childhood friend Claudia. She just so happened to live in Edinburgh, Scotland and will be soon moving to Glasgow. I knew this would probably be the last time I visit Edinburgh for a long time.

People who know me, know I am always in Edinburgh. It’s probably my favourite city in the UK. Why you ask? It’s full of wonderful people, amazing history, fantastic nightlife, beautiful culture and it’s just the right size.

I decided to make a 24 hour video, this style of vlog is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. So, what better way than vlogging a video about my favourite city, with my favourite person?

Sit back, relax and enjoy the view. x

Life | Moving To London

Well if you have been paying attention you would know I moved to London last year. It was on of the scariest and exciting moments of my life. I recently graduated from university, and I decided I wanted a job in London. I moved down South with my boyfriend, Josh, where we lived together with two friends.

BeccaBLC London

One year later and I have moved back to my home town, and I am living back in my family home – yay! I have been getting a lost of questions like – why I moved back to London? Why I moved there in the first place? and what is was like living in London? So, what better way that making a video about it? I created this video not just for me, but for those thinking about making the big move to London.

I really hope this video helps people, and I really wanted to give my honest opinion and advice. London can be a scary place, so it’s best you weigh up all the options. Oh, and be prepared money wise.

Sit back and enjoy xBecca Sig

Travel | New York City | What I did

 

20160606_115322

I finally did it. I have dreamed about the day I would go to New York; I begged my Mum at the age of 16, 18 and 21 to go, but nothing ever surfaced. I have been obsessed with the New Yorker’s life style ever since I can remember; I think Gossip Girl helped build this New York fantasy in my mind. The shopping, the fashion, the buildings, the food and the people has always been a dream for me. June 2016 was the year that I finally followed my dream…

We stayed at the Citizen M hotel which was in the heart of the city; it was just around the corner from times square. The hotel was amazing, the walls were covered in books, tongue-in-cheek quotes and modern technology. Our whole room was controlled by an iPad from mood lighting, to the blinds and to the TV. Everything about the hotel was fantastic, but my most favourite thing about it was the Sky Bar. A bar on the roof top with amazing views of Manhattan and not to mention the fabulous cocktails – which I had way too many of.

I surprised myself that I didn’t really go shopping in New York, the fashion capital of the world…and I didn’t buy much. What is wrong with me? But the truth is, I just didn’t have time. I was too busy exploring everything the city had to offer. Although, I did make the time on my last full day to pop into Sephora and buy a Too Faced palette that I have been wanting after for a while – don’t worry a full review will be coming very soon. I did also treat myself to a Kanken backpack, which I am 100% totally and utterly in love with.

WHAT I DID:

Day 1 was my favourite day, we ended up walking 30,000 steps, unbelievable I know right? We went to a flea market in the Meat Packing District and I bought a exquisite vintage silver ring. We then went walking on the High Line, which was an old freight track turned into a park. This led us to the 9/11 memorial, which was a very moving  but it is something you just have to experience when in New York. We then continued our day by walking around Wall Street and then we got a ferry to Governor Island.

Not many people know about Governor Island but it was my favourite thing I did in New York. It only cost $2 to get the ferry over and took only 5 minutes to actually get there. Governor Island was an island that the old governors of New York lived at, which then became a base where the army and their families lived. It was then abandoned and sold back to New York for £1. It has been turned into a huge park and art hub. There are no cars on Governor Island, so you can rent a bike for $15, which was really fun. Me and Josh (my boyfriend) spent 4 hours on Governor Island – we rode bikes, sunbathed and took in the amazing views of the Manhattan sky line. It really is a must do in New York!

One of my favourite areas in Manhattan was SoHo, a very quirky and young area full of street food, vintage shops and good people. Eileen’s Special Cheesecake was a must for me to go to, because anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with cheesecake, and New York you did not disappoint! Another highlight was walking over the Brooklyn bridge: even though I am afraid of heights, it was something I was not going to miss. Brooklyn was a great area, the pizza there was one of the best I have ever had.

I had such a magical and amazing time in New York, I really did not want to leave. It was my all-time favourite holiday and I am glad I got to experience it. See you next time New York!

Travel London | Tate Modern | Mustard Jacket & Floral Dress

IMG_6119

View of London from Millennium Bridge

After a week of being ill, I finally ventured outside when I finished work for the weekend. Even though I live in London, I do get to explore it as much I want – my friends at work were baffled that I had never ever seen the Shard before. But since starting this blog, it’s gonna give me a kick up the arse to actually get out there and discover London in all its glory.

Today I had my visit to the Tate Modern. I am not a massive art buff, and I have not got a clue about modern art. But it’s pocket friendly (IT’S FREE!) and it’s a fantastic cultured day out in central London. I went with my boyfriend, Josh, who really isn’t into this kinda stuff. He likes his history and science and is not really an artistic person; so he wasn’t best pleased when I told him what we were getting up to on a Sunday. I remember him frequently saying that it’s going to be: “Pretentious as fuck.”

IMG_6132

As we entered Tate Modern, there were big screens playing Shakespearian plays. I think it was something to do with it being the anniversary of his death and birthday yesterday. It was busy for a Sunday, so if you want to go when it’s quieter I’m thinking early weekday mornings would be great for some arty alone time. I was expecting to be quite bored and underwhelmed, but the exhibitions were actually very interesting. However, I was getting angrier by the minute by the sheer amount of people barging into me, and just being plain rude – but that’s London for you. There were original pieces from Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein which was very exciting as I drew a lot of their art work back in my art GCSE age. I also really enjoyed pieces from Guerrilla Girls, feminist artists, who shine light on sexism in the art industry.

Me being arty

What I wore:  Today, the postman  delivered my Missguided mustard jacket that I have been lusting for weeks. So, obviously I had to wear it, despite it being 5 degrees and spitting all day. It was only £30 with a 25% student discount – bargain! I teamed it with a Topshop floral dress from their Autumn collection. I adore this pattern so much, I love it that much I also have the blouse version. The colours are so Spring 2016 and I keep falling back in love with it.

Jacket: Missguided £40 Dress: Topshop £55 Shoes: New Look £25 Bag: Charity Shop £3.00

So in the end, the Tate Modern was a great day out in London; I would highly recommend it. One critiscim would be, that you have to pay £10 extra in order to get into other exhibitions. You can pay a monthly fee for a Tate Modern membership so you can visit new exhibitions for free, but this can be pricey. But if you’re looking for something cheap and in the heart of the city, then this is the place for you.

Moving to London | Cord & Moddolly

Dress: Moddolly

Welcome to my first ever post on my brand new blog!

Ok, so this blog has taken me a few months to get up and running but I wanted to make sure it was perfect before going live. So I’m very sorry for the wait people. Some of you may know that I moved from the North East to London in August 2015 – which was one of the biggest and scariest moments of my life. But along the way, I have met some amazing and fun people, as well as gained a lot of ideas and muses for my writing. BeccaBLC will be a place for fashion, beauty, lifestyle and my London adventures. I want to dip in the world of vlogging, so keep your eyes peeled for some videos coming very soon! I hope you guys enjoy reading BeccaBLC as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Lipstick: Rimmel London by Kate Moss

This dress is from Moddolly –  a tan, cord smock style dress that I am just in love with. I got this dress specifically for an Autumn style, but as Spring approaches this little number is perfect for this season too. Swap boots for some cute, tan brogues or loafers, then maybe swap tights for some little socks. I have found this Spring that pastels are so last year, it’s all about the bold and bright, not to mention mustards and oranges being big Spring 2016.

Loafers: New Look

Moddolly are a lovely, small business that hand-make all of their own clothing and will go the extra mile to make sure you are 100% a happy customer – and that is why I love them! I have a few pieces of Moddolly and each season from them never seems to disappoint. Right now, they have an amazing offer of BUY ONE GET ONE FREE. Pick a smock or pinafore and get a choice of your own absolutely free! You’re welcome.

I hope you enjoyed my first ever blog for BeccaBLC!

Keep your eyes peeled for more personal style, my beauty favourites and a little bit of vlogging.
