I really didn't want to make this one of those "sorry for being MIA" posts but with it being nearly 3 weeks since I last posted I felt it was about time I made a return. I've been racking my brain trying to think why I haven't posted but once I realised I've been focused on my career it all became clear.

Blogging for me is something I enjoy doing outside of work and my social life but I recently had a promotion at work which means more pressure and hours leaving me no time to cram everything in. So I made the decision that rather than getting frustrated at not being able to post three times a week, I would limit myself to just one - in order to get my blogging "mojo" back.

To make it worse, I've not had the chance to travel at all this summer due to working crazy hours so I'm hoping to get some bits booked for Autumn/Winter time so I can properly relax and put life on hold for a while.

Again, I'm sorry for not being online as much as I'd hoped but bare with me and prepare yourself for some AW outfit shots because it's no secret that it's my fave time of year for fashion.

A few days ago I got a very exciting email pop into my inbox, inviting me and some other local bloggers to the Ladies Day event at Doncaster Racecourse in September and of course I jumped at the opportunity! I'm usually really bad at planning an outfit and always seem to leave it until last minute. That was until we where set a challenge to see who could plan the best outfit for the day, so here's mine - enjoy!

It won't come as a surprise that I headed straight to Asos in hope of finding something Ladies Day appropriate but also sticking with my style. I allllwwaays struggle wearing mega girly outfits for days like this as I prefer more clean cut minimal pieces but this is what I came up with.

I went with the rust coloured dress as it's feminine but will also see me into Autumn/Winter, teamed with these beautiful KG heels, plenty of silver rings and the amazing Quay sunglasses. And of course with it being the UK, it's always safe to have a cover up in the form of this suede tassel jacket - although I already own one if you've seen this post!

Are any of you going to the #LadbrokesLadiesDay? Be sure to follow me on Instagram to stay up to date!

So I'm away at the moment visiting family in Exeter and I thought I'd share with you a mix between my travel make up bag essentials and my daily necessities.

I'm loving a glowy base at the moment and a mix of Sleek foundation and the Dior skin star seem to be working a treat. I picked up the Dior foundation in a shade slightly too dark, but when applied with my trusty MAC Pro Longwear concealer it really brightens up the eye area. I use my Arbonne bronzer as a slight contour and my favourite ever highlighter by Collection (I can't tell you how many of these I've bought for my friends because I get so many compliments), just on the tops of my cheeks and down my nose.

For my brows I'm still using the trusty Maybelline Brow Satin and since I've had my hair done even lighter it looks amazing, and I've got my routine down to 30 seconds per brow! Teamed with the Maybelline mascara and either a shade from my Bobbi Brown pallette or the Nars shadow stick and I'm ready to go.

What are your current make up go to products at the moment?

I've somehow gone from three scheduled posts a week, to one post if you're lucky. Things are just so crazy for me at the moment. I'm totally over the whole "feeling guilty for not posting phase" and just focusing on maintaining my love for blogging whilst also trying to have a full time adult life.

Seeing as though my Instagram Babes pt.1 post went down so well I thought I would introduce you to some of the gals that I've been loving recently. I'm well and truly obsessed with Instagram and spend most of my spare time just aimlessly scrolling and getting hair, outfit and life inspiration from the people I follow. 

Jacey is by far my total woman crush at the moment and absolute hair inspiration - and with 209k followers I'm clearly not the only one. If you don't already you gotta go follow her, and check out her blog.  

Teegan is possibly the sweetest Aussie gal that I've seen in the blogging world. She has great style and an even more awesome IG feed.. I warn you now, brace yourself for the best fringe and teeth you've ever seen. 

If you can't tell by now, the past few months have involved me scrolling through hair inspiration since I've gone shorter and blonder and Erika's IG has had a huge part to play in that (and now I want to dye my hair ice silver on a daily basis).. Such fab clean outfits, incredible scenic pictures and the most amazing eyes she's got it all. Go have a nosey and thank me later.

We all follow that one person with amazing fashion that wears all the great outfits that we would never be able to pull off. Yep this is the one, Brittany's total individual style has gained her an impressive 34.8k followers and she's made it into my IG babes!

And there we have it, IG Babes pt.2 completed. Let me know in the comments if there's anything you want to see more of on this blog and I'll try my hardest. Be sure to head over to my Instagram too if you want more updates, @charlrumsby
