This was such a cool venue decked out with old school foosball tables, neon signs and a ceiling made out of skateboards it was deffo 'instagramable' for all the bloggers who attended.

Styling Sessions

Part of my errrr-mazing job at Motel Rocks HQ is to style up some of our awesome New Arrivals on some super hot bloggers babes. Not only do you get to see a sneak preview of whats about to drop online but also an insight into different ways you can style it up for the new season. Below is a round up of my fav blogger shoots so far. Let me know which ones you guys love!!


Lavish Alice



What better way to end one of the best summers of my life full of festivals, holidays, birthdays and far too much alcohol consumption than to go to the paradise of all party loving animals IBIIIZZAAA!!!



Okay so we know this post is very belated, but we needed a lot of time to recover!
This years theme for bestival was desert island disco, perfect for us glitter lovers. 


Winter Wonders



So we recently went on a trip to Croatia together to soak up the last bit of sun before the great british weather kicked in again. We went to a place called Dubrovnik which had THE clearest water we had ever seen and lots of activities for us to see and do.


Crushing on Boots

As winter approaches its time to arm yourselves against the cold british weather so to help you out we've chosen some of our favourite boots currently available online including our fave new trend knee/thigh highs! 


Goldie London

I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the amaaaazing A/W collection by the lovely lot over at Goldie London!
Firstly, I can safely say there is definitely something for everyone in this selection, from gorgeous jumpsuits to tailored coats, whatever your autumn winter style there will be something to take your fancy.


Global Gathering

This weekend I made the epic journey all the way down to Stratford Upon Avon (I say epic because the furthest I venture out of London is to Southampton and that's about it) so it was nice to go and see a different part of the UK.. even if it was just through a train window haha!

After 2 tubes, 2 trains, a shuttle bus and a walk (drag) of our little suitcases we finally found our way to the VIP camping area to set up tent. Loz took full charge with the tent assembly as she 'used to be a well good scout'- yeah kay loz whilst I took like a duck to water as my role of 'Team Motivator' aka skiver. To be fair to her she did do pretty well getting it all up and ready in the space of 5 mins! Leaving only one other thing to do… dump the cases inside (not sure if this counted as glamping? that aside everything else we did that weekend was less that glamorous i can assure you of that!!) and time to crack open the CIIIDEEERRRSSS!!


Miss Pap

If you're like us and stalk instagram on the regs you may have come across the lovely little brand- Misspap.com. Drawn in by the beautiful two-pieces being regrammed by bloggers worldwide we just had to check out their website where we were not disspointed by their wide range of on trend pieces! Boasting new styles that drop every day, the selection is massive and it was so hard to pick just a few of our fav items to tell you all about!

Big on colour, prints, co-ords and kaftans we fell in love with so many of their products. ALL of them are so perfect for the summer made with light weight material and super easy to style up (or if you're ever stuck for styling tips they have enough gorgeous fashion bloggers on hand that style up the pieces like a dream! just check out their insta for inspo). 


New Obsession: Nutri Bullet

Okay so I don’t know about any of you but I have finally decided that it’s time to up the health kick in preparation for my summer holidays. Recently I have seen alot of hype around this amazing blender- The NutriBullet!! I am already completely obsessed with health juices at the moment and often find myself heading to Vital Ingredient for a ‘Lean Green’ or Joe and the Juice for a ‘Go away Doc’ most mornings so it suddenly occurred to me.. why not make them myself!?
Unlike everyday juicers and blenders, the NutriBullet completely breaks down ingredients to their most nutritious absorptive state. This means you get max nutrition giving your body the boost it needs. umm helloooo bikini body!



This week I was lucky enough to be asked by the lovely people down at Shopcade to go and report for them at Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park.


London Birthday Antics

To be completely honest with you, since turning 21 I just hate birthdays. Not because of the whole age thing and growing old, just because of the effort (and most of the time stress) that comes with organising something that everyone will want to do.
Since leaving uni and packing up my bags for laaandan, all of my friends are scattered around the UK making it SO much harder to do anything together let alone pray everyone is all free on the same weekend.
I eventually stopped putting it off (about a week before) and decided to make a weekend of celebrations so everyone could come along!


Around the World in 8 outfits

With Summer Holidays fast approaching I decided to put together a few looks for numerous different places across the globe, unfortunately I won't be visiting any of these places myself this year but a girl can dream!


Hawt right now: ekat suits

A cross between a leotard and a jumpsuit EKATSUITS are the new hot product in everyones festival wardrobes!
With celebs such as Rita Ora, Jaime Winstone, Sienna Miller and Mary Charteris rocking them at Glasto they have become the must have wardrobe staple of the summer!
If you’re anything like me and love to make a statement at festivals (after all if you can’t push the anything goes boundaries there, where can you!?) then these statement pieces are the perfect gear! They are super comfy to dance in and you can even wipe them down if it all gets a bit muddy.. errrr MAZING!
Available from EKATSUITS 


Holi One Festival

On Saturday thousands gathered to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to enduldge in some colourful paint throwing extravaganzas!


Isle of Wight Festival


I headed down to report from the Isle of Wight festival sporting Motels brand new Von Dress in Pastel Daisy Print accessorized with my H&M hand jewellery, Regal Rose body chain and La Moda platforms teamed with fishnet socks. Qudsia opted for the the mixed stripe Kimmy Skirt and Dana Crop Top combo and her amaaaazing fedora from ASOS!

Taking a break from our busy schedules we popped to the park today to shoot some pieces for Motel Rocks.         
  Head over to the website now to shop these little beauties in our SALE!! wahoooooo!!! Which is your fav piece?


Bindi Shopping

I am a biiiig fan of bindis and if you know me, you’ll know how much I wear them on a regular basis. It started as a thing I used to don every now and then on a night out but now its escalated to festivals, shopping trips, work and now even my local Co-op!!

Cordelia Hearts

So last month I won a competition run by the lovely Jenn, founder behind Cordelia Hearts – check them out on instagram if you haven’t already!
Jenn makes the cutest slogan tees and will even custom hand tie- dyes your orders if you so wish! She has the cutest designs perfect teamed up with a pair of black wax jeans and some killer platform heels for some girly drinks (which inevitably lead to one of those crazy, spontaneous MESSY nights out!!)
Check out her website to see the rest of the selection. I chose ‘Like a Moss’ as my winning tee but have since spotted that the wonderfully talented Jenn now does METALLIC versions- omg metallic and me go hand in hand.. think I maaay have to make a cheeky purchase!


The Duffle



It’s official, festival season has begun and what better one to start with than WEAREFSTVL. Equipped with my FujiFilm Instax camera, geared out in Motel Rocks clothing and with my wellies at the ready (Thank GOD) I headed down for a weekend of House music, feet shuffling and style spotting!
Saturdays rain could’t even stop us ravers as we blagged backstage access and hung out with MK, Route 94 and Anabel Englund. Old school pinball machines, deck chairs, and lots of alcohol = the perfect party atmosphere as we hung out in the artist tents before all heading onto the stage to watch/RAVE RAVE RAVE to MKs set! Safe to say everyone was loving life!
