Missguided Sale Favourites

July 17, 2018

I don't know about you guys, but I absolutely live for sale items! Missguided always has sale items but they currently have a few little gems on there that are down in price by as low as 75%! I've been sifting through the whole of their sale pages and have pulled out a small list of things that caught my eye! I will also leave the links to everything I mention down below so that you can easily find the things I mention if you decide you need them in your life.

The first thing that stood out to me is something that I wouldn't usually go for I'm slowly trying to reach out towards different styles. It's a grey cropped sweatshirt with 'Cali' wrote on the front, first off its grey which I usually stray far away from and second off many of you know how I feel about clothing items that aren't plain. I don't know what it is about this one, but I kinda need it. I just think it'd look really good with some black jeans and trainers just for a nice casual every day, just need to pop to Tesco kinda look.

I actually really like how they styled the model in this too, biker shorts are so in right now and sunglasses just make any outfit look 10x better in my opinion. I just wish I could pull these shorts off but unfortunately, I'm too short and I have muscly legs so I'd literally look like a small man. This sweatshirt is now £12 reduced from £20.

If you know me you will know how much I love culottes, they're just the comfiest trousers anyone could ask for. 100% a staple wardrobe item in my eyes, every girl should own at least one pair of these because literally, anyone can pull them off! Now you're probably gonna see these and think, "Court, literally a week ago you were saying you look like a child in stripes" but I was generally referring to horizontal stripes. Vertical stripes, however, are something I need to try out, so these are enticing me. 

Vertical stripes are also very flattering because they make you appear slimmer as well as taller. Hence why this is something I need to try out and get on board with, because I'm so tired of being barely 5ft 2, you guys! These are also £12 and were reduced from £22.

Next, I found my holy grail. Oh, my god, this is the most beautiful skirt I ever laid eyes on, I actually added this straight to my basket and almost cried. I'm not even going to be able to wear this item until I'm back in the UK (in December) but I will wait that long for something this perfect. I have wanted a skirt like this for the longest time, I've seen some but they have never been perfect, and I needed this to be perfect.

I just love the length, the side buckle belt and the colour is just the perfect yellow. This is exactly the skirt I imagined I wanted so I'm so chuffed this is going to be mine (in 5 months, shed a tear for my long wait). Damn right I'm still going to wear this in winter, pair this with some tights, a leather jacket and some Dr Martens boots and you got yourself a look. This skirt was £17 reduced from £25, let's be honest though even if it was £50 I probably still would've convinced myself to buy it.

I also wanted a simple crop that I could pair with that skirt and any other bottom half clothing item. I found this super simple cute plain black bralet. This probably another staple item every girl should have in their wardrobe as it can be dressed up, down and worn in so many different ways.

Again I wanted this purely because I think it'd look bomb with that yellow skirt, but also it'll look great to wear casually with some boyfriend jeans or even high waisted leggings. At a dirt cheap price of £3 from £10, I couldn't say no to this.

Back to the sweatshirts we go, obviously as I mentioned earlier I won't be getting any of this stuff until winter so why not stock up on some warmer clothing items early? I found this grey raw hemmed sweatshirt and I just thought it was so nice and simple and I need it basically.

I decided that I loved this grey sweatshirt so much that I was going to grab it in another colour so I also got the orange one as it was also on sale!

The grey sweatshirt was originally £10 is now only £4, *ahem* did I hear someone shout bargain? Even £10 is a really good price for a sweatshirt. The orange was a tiny bit more 'expensive', only by £2 though as it is £6 reduced from £15.

I then decided I need a new little black dress because what girl doesn't need a new LBD every once in a while. I haven't actually brought a nice dress in what feels like years so this one I was like ok let's just treat myself.

I really like how flattering the neckline is on this dress, it doesn't dip down too low but is also cheeky enough to let a little bit of boob show, I also think the straps make take this dress to a different level just small details like that can really change the way a dress looks. This was £7 reduced from £10 and again I liked this so much I wanted it in another colour.

I have wanted a red dress for a long time, but I've never found the one that I needed. I'm very fussy when it comes to coloured clothes so I need them to be flattering and perfect. I really like the style of this dress and I do like red on my sometimes so this one is really going to be a test but it was £3 from £12 so even if it looks terrible, it's not a massive stab to the bank account!

To be honest with you guys I was actually expecting to find a whole lot more in this sale, but I just found myself searching forever to find items that really got my attention. It's most probably because they are sale items which are obviously things they are trying to get rid of. I could probably spend thousands on their website if I was going to go for full priced things, but everyone loves a sale steal! I think I still found a good amount of things I want though so I'm not mad about it. I didn't actually buy everything listed in this post, only a few things I opted against because I won't be able to wear them for a while, I was behaving (give me a medal) and only ordered those things that I knew I probably couldn't find again. 

Here's a lil link list of everything I mentioned in case you wanna grab some of them yourself!

Plan With Me: My July Set Up

July 12, 2018

Hey guys, sorry this one is late, I genuinely had lost complete track of time last month and before I knew it July was here. So I literally had to scramble a monthly spread together in 2 days. Fellow bujo creators probably know that horrible daunting feeling when you wanted to create something amazing but just don't have the time!

So this month's spread was super simple and fast and will be very easy for you to recreate, I promise August's one will be way more beautiful and creative!

I wanted the main page to be bold and simple so I went for this polaroid theme as I thought it was fairly simple but still looked super cute. Inside all of the photographs, I just doodled things that made me feel summery and warm. Then on the opposite page is my monthly calendar, this turned out such a mess because I tried to cram it all on to one page and I also messed up on the days. I think I'm going to revert back to my double page versions next month so to keep it less messy.

My next 2 pages are all about my social media and my blog. The first page is where I can track my growth and blog views over each week of the month. I changed this to a full page spread so I can track each week so this way I can tell what posts help my growth and which lower it! Then the second page is just a brain dump so I can throw down any blog post or YouTube video ideas that pop into my mind throughout the day. 

(Which reminds me to mention if you guys ever want me to create anything or review something then do leave comments down below and I'll try my hardest to do so).

I then went straight into my weekly spreads, I kept this super simple this month to as you can see. I literally just split the page into quarters and wrote down the dates. Then I have my water tracker in the bottom corner along with anything I need to do next week. I try to drink 5 bottles of water every day but as you can clearly tell especially if you looked at my June spread that rarely happens. I am just so addicted to ice latte's and lemonades at the moment I actually need help. Again this is super simple and easy to recreate if you're bullet journalling in a rush like I was! On my last weekly page, I left a space at the bottom to write down any unfinished tasks so that I can try to get them done in August!

Next, we have my habit tracker page, I've actually been really enjoying using separate little trackers for each thing rather than one whole big one. I find it so much easier to work with and when by the end of the month it's so much simpler to see what habit's I slacked on throughout the month. My habits stay the same every month but I'm thinking about changing it up a bit next month as some of them just aren't that useful to me anymore.

I then have my expenses page, which is super simple the same as my last spread. Just three columns for the date, the description and then the amount I spent on that thing. This is probably just the same standard spread that you see all over the internet for this page, maybe I'll try and spruce it up next month but this style is just so practical and simple! 

Leave a currency sign or emoji down in the comments if you think I should try spice it up next month.

My last page is my most hated page of the month, this is my mood tracker for the month. I wanted to try out this sentence/mood a day style page but I'm 12 days in and I just feel like I'm constantly repeating similar sentences. My moods cycle each week I'm sure! I'm definitely going to revert back to my colour by numbers style.

There we have it, that's my July monthly set up! I'm not really enjoying this month personally because it doesn't reflect me as a person, probably just to the lack of creativity! My favourite page has to be my social media tracker and brain dump spread as I love the little icons I doodled! 

If you liked this one then feel free to check out my June set up for more inspiration, I also did a video on my April monthly spread which I'll insert below!
