10 JUMPERS IN 22 SECONDS - CAN YOU #BEATTHEBOOKING?! #Sp

video
My poor attempt at the 'challenge, oops!

When The Trainline got in touch to ask me if I'd like to take part in their #BeatTheBooking challenge I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and go for it as it sounded really fun and unlike anything I'd ever done before! The challenge I was given was to try and put 10 jumpers on in 22 seconds, my initial thought was 'great, can't be too hard, surely?' surely?!

Definitely not - I completely underestimated this challenge and how hard it would be, it was so funny to try and complete and I was barely putting on my sixth jumper when my stopwatch hit the 22 seconds, a fair attempt (trust me I filmed this six times and this was the best I got, humph!). So here, is my entry but read on below with full T&C on how you can enter your #BeatTheBooking '10 jumpers in 22 seconds' entry, oh and did I forget to mention there is a £200 ASOS voucher up for grabs, woop!

How can I enter? All you need to do is film yourself attempting to put on '10 jumpers in 22 seconds' (trust me it's so much harder than it sounds!) and upload it to a social media platform - either Facebook, Twitter or TouTube. Make sure you hashtag #BeatTheBooking and also tag @TheTrainline so they can see your entry. Et voila, you've entered! The prize for this challenge is a £200 ASOS voucher and you have until the 6th of March to enter - I suggest you line those jumpers up and get filming!

Why 22 seconds? You can book a train ticket on the Trainline app in just 22 seconds (speedy, huh!) so the purpose of the series of challenges is to see if you can complete the task quicker than you could book a ticket, genius!

What if I don't win? If you don't win, fear not as The Trainline have 3 more challenges to unlock and the prizes include tickets to the NME awards, a 12 month Spotify premium membership and  a fitness tracker, so make sure you keep an eye out for the next challenges and enter away! You can see the full T&C and next challenges here.

If you complete this challenge, please send me a link to your entry as I'd love to watch it. I have faith that it is possible to complete but I need to see it to believe it, have you got it in you to #BeatTheBooking?!

WHAT I WORE TO THE FINAL DAY OF #LFW

Jumper: Wallis | Trousers: Wallis | Sleeveless coat: Missguided | Shoes: Wallis | Bag: Mulberry | Watch: Daniel Wellington

Today I'm bringing you my last outfit of London Fashion Week - I skipped day three and four but went along for the last day. I attended the Emilio de la Moreno show with my blogger babe Josie and spent some time hanging out at The Apartment catching up with some lovely bloggers and having some yummy afternoon tea from Aubaine (I'm talking donuts, macaroons and mini profiteroles - it was delicious!).

I opted for heels on my last day of fashion week and these cut out Wallis one are my current favourite - they are super comfortable (I'm not a natural heel wearer!) and I managed to last all day and only changed into my trainers for the train home... hurrah! For my outfit I went for some wide leg trousers from Wallis - currently loving wide leg trousers and I currently stand at owning four pairs, clearly a bit obsessed right now! They are super flattering and look great for casual daywear looks or dressed up in the evenings.

I paired my heels and trousers with this Wallis navy jumper and Missguided camel sleeveless coat to  break up the dark colours. To complete my outfit I went with gold details and wore my Mulberry bag and Daniel Wellington watch!

What do you think of my final outfit for the last day of #LFW? Until next season!

MY #LFW HANDBAG ESSENTIALS

Sunglasses: Le Specs | Bag: M&S | Watch: Daniel Wellington | Perfume: Estee Lauder Modern Muse | Phone case: Iconemisis feather iPhone case | Lipstick: Tom Ford 'Lips and Boys' in shade Orlando | Lipgloss: Clarins Instant Light Lip Protector  | Lip treatment: Fresh 'Honey' Sugar Lip Treatment | Hand cream: Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream
Yesterday saw the end of LFW and what an amazing season it's been, I had an incredible time coverage beauty looks backstage, watching shows, catching up with some blogger pals and celeb spotting - roll on next fashion week! I thought I'd put together my 'fashion week handbag essentials' to show you what I pack in case you're planning on attending next season!

First up I packed my trusty notebook so I could jot down any trends spotted or contacts made, I also had my apartment brochure and card to gain access. I popped my Le Specs sunglasses into my bag and surprisingly I did get to wear them as it was quite sunny at times. For two of my outfits I wore my Daniel Wellington as it's such a classic design and I was wearing gold detailing on both days and it went perfectly with my outfits!

I kept my Estee Lauder Modern Muse handy at all times to have a mid day spritz, it's the perfect handbag size and it rarely ever leaves my bag - I also get so many compliments when wearing this fragrance, it's honestly one of my favourites! For my lips I took the Tom Ford 'Lips and Boys' in shade Orlando lipstick which is the perfect nude shade when paired with the Clarins Instant Light Lip Protector over the top for added shine. If my lips where drying out or chapped I kept my Fresh 'Honey' Sugar Lip Treatment in my bag, it was also pretty much the same shade as my lipstick which was so handy!

I also had a mini Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream in my bag as I've been suffering with such dry hands lately which really isn't a good look, so in between shows and dashing around I was often applying this! My current phone case of choice is the Iconemisis feather iPhone case AKA the 'blogger phonecase' - I can't tell you the amount of bloggers I've met who also have this case, but it's just so pretty! 

What's in your fashion week bag? Any essentials I need to pack for next season?

WHAT I WORE TO DAY 2 OF #LFW

Jacket: French Connection (I found an exact dupe on ASOS for £50 here!) | Trousers: French Connection (matching ASOS trousers for £35!) | Shirt: *Forever 21 | Bag: ASOS | Trainers: Adidas Stan Smiths | Watch: *Daniel Wellington

For day 2 of London Fashion Week I always knew I was going to wear this beautiful pastel blue French Connection two piece suit as it was love at first site and I couldn't wait to rock something a little different! I originally planned to pair it with these beautiful Missguided monochrome loafers but after the blisters I'd obtained on day 1 (no, I wasn't even wearing heels) I had to have four plasters on each foot and trainers were the only option. Although I was fairly happy about this because not only would be feet be snug but I'd also get to wear my new zebra print Adidas Stan Smiths that I'd ordered from Very a few days before and luckily they arrived just in time for LFW!


I wanted to keep my top simple so I picked up this lovely roll sleeve white shirt from Forever 21 for just £14 which is such a bargain! I popped to a haberdashery shop a few days before and picked up some black ribbon to tie around the shirt - I thought this would add a nice twist to the outfit. To complete my outfit I added this incredible box bag which I picked up in the ASOS sale for £50 (it's such a great size and I love the handles) and my classic Daniel Wellington watch which I can't stop wearing at the moment as the design is timeless and it goes with everything!

Also, I was just browsing the ASOS new in section and spotted this pretty much exact dupe of my  French Connection suit for less than half the price! A definite investment for Spring I say! 

What do you think of my outfit for day 2 of LFW? Do you prefer it to day 1's outfit?

WHAT I WORE TO DAY 1 OF #LFW

With the lovely Josie from Fashion Mumblr!
Jumper: *Primark (in store now) | Culottes: *Primark (in store now) | Jacket: River Island (similar here from Missguided) | Shoes: *Primark (in store now) | Bag: *Primark (in store now) | Necklaces: *Primark (in store now) | Watch: *Fossil | Bracelets: *Primark (in store now)

The last two days I've spent at London Fashion Week, rushing around snapping street style, hanging out with some of my favourite bloggers, visiting the Apartment and getting the low down backstage at shows - it's been a busy but fun few days! Today however, I've swapped the cobbles for my office so I can catch up on some blog posts, emails and I'm off out this afternoon to snap some outfit posts!

I thought I'd share my outfit to day 1 of LFW as it seemed to go down pretty well on Instagram (@Frockmeimfamous)! Primark is one of my favourite high street stores and you can find so many gems in there - so I when Primark asked if I'd like to wear some pieces from there I jumped at the chance. It's so great to find some on trend pieces from a affordable high street store and for people to snap you for street style and lust over your shoes that they mistook for Whistles and only cost £14!

I found these culottes in store and thought they were a great staple piece (and only £14 too) so I snapped them up for my outfit and built around them. I found this navy sweater which I really liked also (£6!) - I opted for plain pieces to wear then wanted to dress it up with accessories. I saw this bag and straight away knew that I wanted to style it with my outfit, although they had a grey one too and a bigger size so the decision was which one to go for! This bag was £8 - which I still can't quite believe! I had so many compliments on it and although I opted for the smaller size I was surprised at how much I could fit in it, think I may have to go back for the grey one too!

I layered up lots of gold necklaces so my jumper wouldn't look too plain, the necklaces and bracelets I'm wearing ranged from £1.50-£3 but came in packs of 2-6 so I had loads of options for layering which was great! I finished off my outfit with my rose gold Fossil watch which I love and my sleeveless duster jacket from River Island which I haven't stopped wearing lately!

What do you think of my outfit for day 1 at LFW? Stay tuned for what I wore to day 2!
