In my early teenage years I was a huge fan of Exhibit Clothing. They have always had pretty pieces at a ridiculously affordable price. It was my go-to shop for an outfit for the teenage discos.
Fast forward a few years, I had got a part time job and my disposable income was a hell of a lot more than it was before. So me and Miss Selfridge, Topshop and River Island became the bestest of friends, leaving behind poor old Exhibit. I had new friends now and we grew apart.
But like all good friendships we began to get back in touch. I’d take an occasional trip by to see how she was doing admiring some nice clothing pieces.
We just needed a little nudge in the right direction to kick back to how things were before I moved on to Miss Selfridge and the likes.

So you may have noticed that I spent my summer in California. The state renowned for sunshine and great beaches. So when a Californian start up company got in touch about a product review I was more than happy to oblige.
Sand Cloud is a San Diego based company made up of three best friends who have noticed that lazing on the beach has actually got some drawbacks. (Yea I didn’t know there could be any either.)

Needless to say I am not in NYC at the moment, but that doesn’t stop me admiring the style of the attendees of the shows.
Street Style has turned into a huge interest. I suppose it might be due to the fact those clothes seem so much more tangible, opposed to those on the catwalk.
Luckily for me there was a serious amount of monochrome outfits being sported.
Here’s a look at some of my favourites (so far). I’d love for you to show me a few of yours in the comments.

I have loads and loads of photos from my time spent in San Francisco. I thought it would be nice to share some of them with you in a series of blog posts.
While I was away, I got to go to my very first sporting event ever; a baseball game. We seen the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the San Francisco Giants.

If you follow me on Instagram (@LifeofLalaBlog in case you were wondering) you will have noticed that my Summer of San Francisco shenanigans is well and truly over.
It is good to be home, especially when you are greeted with this wonderful sign! Lovingly created by my youngest brother.
Be still our aching feet, the fashion gods have spoken; it’s now perfectly acceptable to wear flat shoes. It’s been along time coming! For years we’ve squeezed our feet into some questionable shoes all in the pursuit of fashion.
While I was in San Francisco, I wore high heels a total of once! It’s so much more laid back there. The one time I did wear heels, I regretted it an hour later. I have no idea why it has taken this long, but finally I have accepted it’s ok to wear flats on an evening out! If it’s good enough for Miranda Kerr, Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung, it’s good enough for me.

There seems to be about ten makeup brushes for every step of your makeup routine. Now while that is both exhausting and expensive, I’ve had a think and came up with three brushes I genuinely couldn’t do my make up without, everything else I could muddle through with cotton buds (I reckon). Although, please don’t make me do that.
