When Tobi reached out and asked me to style three of their pieces I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I was very excited. Tobi has a such a huge range of beautiful clothes on their website that you are spoilt for choice and the prices are so affordable that I think know I'll be making a huge order come payday. So today I will be showing you how I style these three pieces, if you are interested in the items I have included links so you can check them out.

Sandals- New Look
Jacket- New Look
Neckalce- Regal Rose
Earrings-  A craft fair 
Rose Gold Earrings (Worn as bracelets)- Primark 
Gold Bracelet- Thrifted 

Maxi skirts are a god send on days when it's warm but you don't fancy getting your legs out. This khaki skirt gave off real Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic vibes so I wanted to channel some of that witchy, boho charm into my outfit. I did this by adding thin, delicate jewellery and the rose detail on my top really adds to that effect. As it's still freezing here in the UK I added this embroidered bomber jacket that gives the outfit a tougher edge but with those delicate elements. I've worn a pair of gorgeous black sandals to show you how you could wear this in the spring/summer but if it's still cold where you are a pair of ankle boots would look great.

T-Shirt Dress- Tobi 
Jacket- Thrifted 
Boots- Doc Martens 
Choker Necklace- ASOS

 So can I just stay in this dress forever? Because it's the most comfortable thing! This dress is perfect for those days when you want to be comfy, I wore this to a cinema date with my fiancé. As I said it's still freezing here so I paired this dress with a thick pair of tights and my trusty Doc Martens so that I could stay warm and comfy. I threw this denim jacket on to add another layer of casualness and in order to stay warm, the jacket and my choker necklace give a 90's look which works really well with the dress. The dress will also be perfect when it gets hotter, just add a pair of white converse and a backpack and you're good to go.

Dress- Tobi
Jacket- Primark
Boots- Primark
Earrings- Primark
Necklace- River Island 

Oh my, this dress, it's simply the sexiest thing I have ever worn! As the dress shows off a lot of skin I added a pair of over the knee boots so that I was more covered and then I could let the dress do the talking. This dress would be perfect for a night out so I added a pair of hoops and a elegant necklace to add to the night out outfit feel, I know what I'll be wearing for my birthday at the end of the month. I wore a red lip to add even more drama.

I would like to thank Tobi for this collaboration, I had so much fun putting these outfits together and I really appreciate the opportunity.  I hope you all enjoyed reading how I would style these clothes. 

Do you enjoy these outfits? How would you style these pieces?

Happy Valentine's Day! As it's a special day and lots of us are feeling the love I thought I would share with you some music that I think will be perfect to set a mood. Music can be a valuable addition to a sexual experience. It can help allow us to explore parts of us that we may be too afraid to look into. Music can set the mood, make it easier to connect to the other person(s) or just as another fun element to whatever you may be enjoying at the time. It can also be perfect if you are going solo and want to add a layer of luxury.  

With the vast array of music in the world it's easy to find something that will fit to whatever atmosphere you're trying to create. These are a selection of songs that I find help create another layer of sensuality. There is a selection of different moods in these picks so that you can find something that will suit whatever it is you're feeling. 

Is This Real by Lisahall. I fell in love with this song from the moment I heard it on the Practical Magic soundtrack. It's slow and sensual and creates such a powerful atmosphere, really adding to the chemistry. 

Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson. Yes I know it has become a bit of a cliché of using Marilyn Manson in sexual playlist but hey this song works for me. I know people would scream at me for saying this but I think it's the best version of the song. I love how dark Marilyn makes the lyrics sound. 

Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. Although the song is about unrequited love the song is so sexy and really adds to the romantic atmosphere. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and found something you might want to add to your own bedroom playlist, remember everyone has different tastes so whatever puts you in the mood just go for it.

If you have any song recommendations please let me know in the comments. Have a lovely, safe Valentine's whatever you are getting up to!

I have not blogged in over six months but today is the beginning of a new wind for In Ella's Element. I am full with ideas, creativity and inspiration so I will be blogging frequently. However I've decided to not restrict myself to a schedule as I feel it really does not work for me and if anything it stifles my writing. 

I stopped blogging for a few reasons: firstly, that I had lost my inspiration and creative spark, I felt like I was just writing drivel and really hated my blog. In all honestly as I had fallen so out of love with blogging I didn't think I would ever start up again, but luckily the passion has returned and I'm hoping blogging will bring me as much happiness as it used to. 

Secondly, and this is a point that I wasn't going to talk about but I thought I would be honest, I felt that nobody was reading my blog. I don't get many views and this made me feel like I wasn't any good at writing and every time I uploaded a post I was just embarrassing myself. I would say that there's two factors to this: the first was that I was comparing my views to those who either blog full time or who have more time to blog, this is in no way me bitching about these people, they are incredible and I hope they keep growing and having an amazing time doing it. The other factor is that in order to get more views (and to talk to some awesome people) you have to engage with other bloggers, this is something that I struggle with. I have anxiety and one of the ways it effects me is in my social interactions, I find it hard to approach or talk to people, even if it's only online. I then feel isolated and not really part of the blogging world, it's no one's fault and it's not me looking for sympathy, it is what it is. But what I've realised is that if I get 1 view or 1000 views on a post what does it matter, as long as I enjoy writing and what it is I write about? So I will no longer worry about my views and just have fun writing. 

So what have I been up to during my hiatus? Well firstly I finished my Master's Degree with a Merit (the second highest grade),  I won't apologise for sounding like I am bragging because, let's face it, I am. It's an amazing achievement that I made myself believe (and let others make me believe) that I would never be able to accomplish. I've also been doing a lot more artwork and creating more pieces that I really love, so much so that my idea of opening an Etsy shop is looking more like a reality and less like a pipe dream. 

There will be a lot of topics that I will write about on my blog now, such as witchcraft, music, sexual relationships and so much more. I hope you will enjoy the new phase of In Ella's Element. As I won't have a schedule I will let you know when I'm uploaded a post via my Twitter so you can give me a follow there and let me know if there's anything that you might want to see here on my blog. 
Hey all, so this is the final part of my Tokyo trip. So if you want to check out the other two parts of my holiday, you can here and here. Today I'm sharing what Dan and I got up to on the last two days of our trip. 

Day 5 

Mount Takao 
So Dan and I headed up to Mount Takao which is just about an hour away from central Tokyo. We took a cable car about a quarter of the way up and then took trail 1 up to Yakuo-in Temple. Then went back down to take trail 4 all the way up to the summit, the view was stunning and because it was such a clear day we could see Mount Fuji! It was one of those moments that will stay with me forever and I found myself getting emotional. Then we took trail 6 back down to Biwa waterfall where Dan proposed! If you want to read about my engagement you can here. Going up Mount Takao was an incredible experience and it was manageable as I am in no way an experienced hiker or even in shape for that matter. So don't be put off climbing it, it's an incredible experience what you won't forget.

Day 6 

Imperial Palace Gardens 
As our plane didn't leave until 10 we had most of Saturday to ourselves. So we decided to chill out and look around the Imperial Palace Gardens. They were beautiful, although I preferred the Rikugien Gardens personally. 

Tokyo really was incredible, wonderful experience and I'm so grateful I was able to go and visit the place I've been dreaming of since I was little. I 100% recommend visiting this amazing city and discovering the culture, food, excitement and beauty of Tokyo. I know I will be going back some day.  

I hope you enjoyed this post and finding out what I got up to in Tokyo. Thanks for reading!
