My 5 Must-Have Accessories

My 5 Must-Have Accessories
The accessories for me always bring together an outfit, they can totally change the perception of how your outfit looks. These are my top 5 must-have accessories that I cannot live without at the moment and always style an outfit well.

Topshop Rose Gold Style Sunglasses - No matter what time of the year it is I will always carry these sunglasses in my handbag. The ombre styled lenses add a stylish touch to any outfit and let's not forget the dreamy rose gold frame.

Dorothy Perkins Nude Pompom Slipper Pumps - These are so cosy to wear and great to throw on with a pair of skinny jeans or some printed trousers. I think they really add a touch of class and elegance to an outfit. The pompom style is too adorable and not to everyone's taste but I personally love it!

Daniel Wellington Rose Gold Watch* - I cannot seem to leave the door without this watch, it really sets an outfit off and can be worn for all occasions. The rose gold detailing combined with the white eggshell dial and brown leather straps really make this watch look simplistic and classy. If you are interested in treating yourself to one of these stunning watches I have a 15% off code for you, the code is katiesworldofbeauty

Topshop Black Bralet - Sometimes wearing a plain black bra when you are chilling in the house or dressed casually can seem like a waste of time. Lately, I have been wearing bralets a lot more, styled with casual outfits and I think the detailing of this bralet really looks interesting and edgy. 

Primark Marble Triangle Necklace - Whenever my outfit is in need of a necklace I go for this marble effect gold necklace. It goes quite nicely with a lot of casual clothes but could possibly be styled up nicely with an evening outfit too.

What is your must-have accessory??

7 Things I Like To Do In Autumn

7 Things I Like To Do In Autumn
I cannot put into words how thrilled I am that it's finally Autumn! Crispy leaves, purple lipsticks, knitted socks, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes and finally it is acceptable to start planning all of the festivities we have coming soon.

Here are some things I like to do that gets me in the mood for autumn

1. Bake: I like baking all year round but once autumn is here I like to bake lots of Halloween, Christmas treats. If you follow my Pinterest you will know how much I love re-pinning foodie treats to bake.

2. De-Clutter: Every season I like to give my room a little bit of a revamp just to keep it fresh and in season. I have started to get my coats and winter clothing on display ditched the bright pink lipsticks and added a lot more fairy lights around my room.

3. Stock Up: Every single time autumn/winter is here I will stock up on countless amounts of candles, thick socks and bath products. I have baths a lot more in the colder months so these are all essential for me to stock up on to keep warm and relaxed!

4. Go On Walks: I think it is important to try and keep active just as much in the colder months as well as summer. Going on walks to parks, kicking my feet through crisp brown leaves whilst sipping a pumpkin spice latte or walking through winter markets smitten over the little trinkets is always a hobby I enjoy to do.

5. Drink Chai Latte: Chai Latte is my favourite autumnal drink to order when I am in a coffee shop. The cinnamon spice and milky taste are like autumn/winter in a mug and the perfect drink to have during the colder months.

6. Write Lists: Since Autumn/winter is one of the busier times of the years for keeping on top of things I decided now is the time for a new notebook, any excuse. This notebook will be used for writing Christmas lists, birthdays and other festive occasions. You can purchase this marble notebook from Uniqfind* which if you love marble, ceramic designs you will love this site!

7. Relax: Even though this is simply the busiest time of the year I like to relax a bit more from now till January. All of the above are ways I like to relax that don't take much effort to do but make such a difference.

Ways to Drive Traffic to Old Blog Posts

Ways to Drive Traffic to Old Blog Posts
Remember that blog post you spent so much time creating that got so many wonderful responses? If you are a continuous blogger the chances are those posts have perhaps been pushed aside and forgotten about overtime, almost like we are saying RIP to them all.

I think it's important to not only drive traffic to your fresh, newly content but back to those old posts that you really enjoyed publishing too. This is a cooperative way to increase page views, SEO and potentially new readers. I have recently been trying new methods to boost my recognition and traffic on old blog posts which believe it or not have somewhat made a difference.

Link Familiar Posts In New Content | If you are writing your monthly favourites link last months favourites (or even last years!), an ootd link an ootd with similar accessories, any tips on blogging link other tips see a pattern here? I have an example here at the bottom of this post I linked a couple of oldish posts relevant to the content. This method is my favourite and takes no time or effort whatsoever. Plus makes your blog look more professional and busy.

Up Your Social Media Skills | There is absolutely nothing wrong with copy and pasting an URL from an old post and tweeting about it. I have done this with my university advice posts and I will continue to do so. I know a lot of students are getting ready to start or go back into education therefore now is the perfect time for me to up my social media on my student advice posts to get a little bit of traffic as well as helping others. Best of both worlds ey?

Tweak Those Old Posts | Maybe at the time you thought it was quirky to have song lyrics as your blog post titles. A good way to get those posts noticed is to simplify them down to basics. If your post title reads 'digging the dancing queen' or something simply change it so something a lot safer and easy 'July favourites' or 'Primark ootd' etc. Make them straight to the point as the end of the day people won't search for a blog post with lyrics in. Also, you could go back to old posts and just change a few words and add keywords to up your trend and get them more noticed on Google. All of these will automatically update your BL accounts (if you have one) and be displayed at the top of your archive so readers will see them at first glance too.

Include A 'Popular Posts' Widget | I have had this from the word go and I must admit it 100% helps with traffic. I am forever seeing oldish posts getting popular views and even comments which is a bonus really. I used to think this was simply robotic, spams just constantly stalking my posts but that wasn't always the case. I still get comments not only on those posts but readers will directly tweet me about a post I've previously published which is such a lovely feeling.

I hope these simple steps helped you with your blog traffic!

Let's Talk Feet

Footcare products
For today's post, I am going to be delving into an unspoken about the practically extinct area that gets a lot of people's faces cringing and feeling uncomfortable and that is feet. In this post, I am going to share with you all some feet products that'll get your feet looking glamorous.

Feet are one of those areas that people overlook and don't often want to talk about. Some may be embarrassed by them whereas others may just hate the look and thought of them. This shouldn't be the case, I mean feet are one of the most important parts of our body, we use them every day to get to places. Therefore I think they deserve the most pampering and treatment!

I like to pamper my feet once or twice a week especially in the colder months just to keep them moisturized and prevent any soreness. Once I have showered I will get dry then take my Vama Glass Foot File and exfoliate my feet to remove any dead skin cells. Once my feet look a lot more smooth I will go ahead and take my Scholl Dry Skin Instant Recovery Cream and let it sink into my feet to dry. This product moisturizes and exfoliates all in one so you could skip using a foot file and use just this alone. It smells very pleasant not like a lot of foot creams I have tried over the years, it takes around 10-15 minutes to dry then your feet are good to go!

If my feet have really had it rough for example say I have been on a huge walk and my feet are covered in blisters or just really ache I like to use the LUSH Fair Trade Foot Lotion just before I go to bed. I like to treat this as an overnight foot mask so by morning my feet are silky smooth and no longer in pain. This lotion smells delicious it is very minty which is refreshing but also allows your feet to feel really cool which is perfect if your feet swell up.

Other foot products I like to use is Scholl Fresh Step Shoe Spray* and I like to spray this into my gym trainers. Not that I ever get smelly feet but of course when you workout your feet tend to sweat. This spray really refreshes and keeps away any bad smells from my trainers. Another product I like to use is the Scholl Ultra Slim Party Feet Cushions and I like to apply these to any high heels I wear. I have always used cushions for my heels as there is nothing worse than having a night out and halfway through the night you take your shoes off because your feet hurt. These help prevent pain as well as your feet sliding out!
