New Site, New Theme, New me




It feels like forever since I last sat down and wrote a blog post. A lot has changed in my life since  then. Summer has been and gone, autumn is well under way - It's proved to be some of the most challenging months to date.  The good news is i'm back from my hiatus and ready to start blogging again, fresh with ideas ready to kick start simplystevie.co.uk (yes my little blog is now a WEBSITE?!..pretty exciting to say the least!). Today also marks the celebration of 1.4K followers (via bloglovin) which is crazy - Thankyou :)

2017 has been a year of learning and It's been a long journey on my path to self discovery but something i am thankful for. Loosing myself was a blessing in disguise and whilst tough to come back from - i did it! Hard decisions happened along the way but I'm finally starting to feel like me again, just improved, focused and stronger than I've ever been.

During my hiatus I've been focusing on creative makeup looks which you can find on my second Instagram @simplysteviebeauty *blog post coming soon*, i;m no longer wanting to study performing arts but would rather do a makeup related course at university.

A brace free smile, Witchy vibes and turquoise tranquility marks the new era for SimplyStevie and i'm happy as ever! Below are some photo's of how i spent my 19th Birthday :)






  What do you think of my new look?

Till next time,

Jeans X Shein




FINALLY a pair of jeans that fit me correctly, Thankyou Shein

           Anyone else seem to have never ending issues with jeans or is that just me? 

From baggy knees, to uncomfortable questionable fits and awkward *camel toe* wardrobe malfunctions, it's clear to say me and jeans don't really get along - Until now

Shein continues to impress me with each item i'm lucky enough to review and these distressed skinny jeans are no exception. 





If you're on the hunt for affordable, good quality jeans i'd definately reccommend these. They're soft, stretchy AND comfortable! 

I just love how easy it is to style these jeans, they instantly add that bit of 'Glam' to even the plainest of tops.

Ripped jeans not your thing? Don't worry they have plenty of other styles too - Head over to Shein.com for more.

Brightly coloured metallic eye shadow's anyone?

Count me in! Yours for as little as £1.99 on Fragrancedirect.co.uk , what have you got to lose?

This palette is a hidden gem and a firm favourite of mine. I've loved channelling my inner creative side with these bright colours.

 Below are some looks i have created only using this palette.

Why not try layering eyeshadow on top of lipsticks to create a unique look?

In the above image i put on a purple lipstick and layered purple, blue, light blue and green eyeshadow to achieve this holographic lip.

I loveeeee this palette! The colours are really pigmented it's so easy to use, did i mention it's compact and comes with a mirror? Thank you beauty gods.

Below are some swatches

I find that the colour payoff is stronger when applied with a finger or on a wet brush. However if you want a subtle pop of colour just use an eyeshadow brush, the colours can be layered to create the desired brightness.

Not already sold? Take a look at the 12 eyeshadows you could be getting for £1.99...

Solid X Pattern



Branching out into patterned clothing is still something I'm yet to get the hang of, and for now experimenting with how I pair patterned pants is something I'm really enjoying.

One of my favourite way's I've paired these pants so far is with my body suit* from Shein. Ahh finally, a body suit that perfectly fits petite girls - Where have you been all my life?!?

Lace up fronts are something you either love or you hate and (un)fortunately depending on your view they seem to be on practically every vest top, jumper and body suit going. Admittedly it took a while for me to make a decision if it was my kind of thing or not, hence why i'm so late to this trend.

Baby pink, not a colour that i wear often but there was something about it that made the lace up front seem less frightning and wearable not just on special occasions. From here the Solid X Pattern combo was born aka the perfect glam but chill outfit.


*The bodysuit was kindly sent to me by Shein.com for consideration, views are my own true thoughts and not affected by the brand. I only work with brands i truly believe in and love.

5 Netflix Show's You Need To Watch

Displaying IMG_2153.JPG

If you're anything like me you'll love having a nosey at what other people have been enjoying, and Netflix is no exception to this. Below are five show's I've been watching on Netflix and absolutely love!

Rick and Morty - Cartoon's for adults anyone? Perfect for those dreaded hangover day's. A serious but hilairous science fiction based show, which follows a mad scientist and his grandson companion. Don't judge it on the first few episodes. it get's better i promise! You'll soon grow to love the Smith family and find yourself re-watching it over and over.

13 Reasons Why - If you don't know about this controversial show then where have you been? It's all anyone's been talking about on social media for the last few weeks. I think it's a great show and has resulted in people actually talking about serious issues like mental health, rape and suicide which can only be a good thing right?

Freaks and Geeks - Oldie but goldie, made in the 90's with a super famous cast featuring the likes of James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and Linda Cardellini. Sounds like a show sent from heaven, do i need to say anymore?

Stranger Things - I was late to the hype on this show, there was something about it that just didn't appeal to me. Oh, how wrong i was. It's amazing! Who knew a Sci-fi show about a boy that goes missing could be so interesting?

Grimm - Did you order any cheese with your chips? Because this is one cheesy series. If you love the Brother's Grimm fairytales and Buffy The Vampire Slayer then this is the show for you. I've not finished watching this yet but thought it was worth a mention anyway as i'm really enjoying it.

                     What are you watching on Netflix?

                                Already seen some of these shows? Let me know what you thought :) 


Till next time,

Spring/Summer Outfit




Spring is quickly approaching and if i'm honest i want winter to be over so i can wear some of my other clothes again. Having said that Shein.com kindly sent me a  pink chocker top in size XS and a split ripped pencil skirt in size M. For size reference i'm a UK 6 for both upper and lower half.

If you are new to my blog you may not know i'm a huge fan of Shein.com and the cheap but good quality clothes they have available. I've worked with them for more than four years now and they've come along way in that time. The staff are lovely and helpful so if you have any questions be sure to give them an email or check their FAQ section.

pink chocker top review:

I have mixed thoughts on this top because it didn't fit me despite getting the smallest size. If you look on the website the top has flaied arms and cut out shoulders which in my photo it doesn't. This is because the arms were too big and the cut out was almost at my belly. For the purpose of the photo i tyed the arms behind me in a bow which gave me this super cute chocker top. I think i'd wear the top out like that if i found a jacket that would go with it!

The material is good quality and the colour compliments your skin tone. I think it's a really pretty top and it's a shame it didn't fit right. I do still really like it though.

Price: £11.63  Size i got: XS


I love this skirt! It's exactly what i was looking for and will be a staple item for my summer outfits, i can't wait. The skirt fits me really well and it's super comfy. 

The skirt has a zip and button fastening which i like as not many pencil skirts have that. On the website it said the skirt was made of denim and was stretchy which is true, but it's a very thin type of denim. I love the sahde this skirt is in and gets me excited for summer. Overall i really like this item. 

Price: £10.80  Size i got: M

Below are some more photo's of this outfit.






Hope you enjoyed this review! I've just taken photo's for my next upload which is coming soon.

Till next time,

 Stevie x
