Summer Daze...

May 31, 2013

On Bank Holiday Sunday the weather was lovely so I thought I would take advantage and take some photos for you all!


Recently I bought this amazing Khaki Jacket with beautiful back and shoulder detailing in Primark for only £10 in the sale! I absolutely love it as it is so easy to just fling on and look like you made an effort!

The detailing in the back is gorgeous and I think it adds a really interesting element to the piece.

I paired  this with a sheer and simple cream top, some plain leggings and my trusty converse. This is what I like to call 'Lazy Fashion'. You don't have to very try hard but you get good results!


Jacket- Primark, Top- Primark, Leggings- Primark, Shoes- Converse (office) ,Rings- Primark&Beach Shop, Necklace- Kukee.co.uk , Bag- Charity Shop (originally Primark) and Sunglasses- Urban Outfitters. (Nail Polish was Nails Inc. Motcombe Street!)

           I also took some pictures of the day so thought I would leave them for you to enjoy!

Pattern People...

May 27, 2013

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I rarely pay full price for anything. So when I was having a little wonder around H&M the other day and came across these amazing patterned trousers at 50% off (which made them £5!) , I knew that they would soon be mine.

I never really thought I was a patterned trousers person. I tend to stick to black, grey, white etc (bet that doesn't surprise you!)- but I really liked these and to my surprise they aren't that hard to style either. They are a great alternative to jeans on a warmish day when you don't fancy getting your legs out!

I like to keep it quite simple on top when wearing pattern on the bottom. I'm wearing this simple cream sheer top from Primark.




I also love these amazing wedges from Primark that only cost £10! They just add a really elegant touch to the outfit.

                            Top- Primark ,Trousers H&M and Shoes- Primark.

                 You can get the Charity Wristband that I am wearing from Believe In Magic here!

Firmoo Sunglasses Review...

May 16, 2013

Recentley I was contacted by an Americain based company called Firmoo who kindly offered to send me some Glasses from a range of their eyewear. I decided to pick a pair of sunglasses as I don't actually wear prescription glasses and I thought they would be a bit more useful than just clear lensed fashion glasses. I was more than delighted when a pair of stunning tortoise shell square framed glasses got delivered to me.

On first impressions I was amazed at the quality of the glasses and the items you get with it. In the package was a glasses sleeve, a sturdy leather glasses case, the glasses themselves and some screws to adjust if needs be. Overall the packaging looks high quality and professional and also stops your glasses being crushed at the bottom of your bag!

The actual glasses are absolutely amazing. They have gradient lenses which make it a doddle to see in bright sunlight. Without sounding like a snob....I can now so see the difference between a good quality pair of glasses and Primark ones... I think with something like sunglasses, sometimes you just have to spend a little extra to get the best quality and I think for glasses it is worth it, you are protecting your eyes after all and they are with you for life!

The glasses are sturdy, good quality and fit my face well. Most glasses slip off me as I literally have a pea head, but these only slip the teeensiest bit down my nose- (but what do you expect with a pea head eh?!).
I love the design as I think it is really versatile and easy to wear and style with many different outfits. The good thing about these glasses is they can also be prescription so you don't have to worry about not be able to see clearly if you are a glasses wearer!

Firmoo kindly offer an amazing service of 'First Pair Free' for new customers, where you can get your first pair of glasses free!
I think this would be an amazing thing to do if you were considering a pair of glasses and wanted to see what they were like without having to splash too much cash.

Overall I love these glasses and I can tell I will keep them many years.

My glasses are the #OTO5374 model  from Firmoo* (link here) *$49 or £33.81.




Lipstick: The Summer Line-Up...

May 10, 2013

I am an avid lipstick wearer. I just love the stuff. The idea of being able to transform my face with many different colours just excites me! This brings me onto telling you about my favourite lipsticks for summer. I like to wear highly coloured lipsticks in the summer as I feel they just add some brightness to my day!


Mac 'Lady Danger' (matte)

I ADORE THIS LIPSTICK! It is a thing of beauty. It is SO pigmented, it lasts SO long and it is just SO pretty. I think it is a great alternative to the classic red as it is more of an orange-toned red. It is a matte shade so depending on the condition of your lips could be a little drying but none the less I love it!

Rimmel Kate Moss ''20'

This lipstick is amazing quality for the price. The pigmentation is that of a Mac lipstick and it feels lovely and creamy on the lips. It doesn't last as long as a higher-end lipstick but it is still amazing for £5.49!

Lancome l'absolute Rouge '06'

I love this lipstick as it is a great alternative to a nude. It is not in your face bright but then again it is not like you can't see it. It lasts a long time and smells AMAZING! (Just like those round sherbety-ish sweets that resemble tablets when you were a kid- I'm aware that sounds strange but if you know what I'm on about then it won't!) This is a sample size and I would love to pick up the full size I just have to get over the £22 price tag first!

Rimmel Kate Moss '101' (matte)

This is another great alternative to a nude as it is a lovely pinky colour that looks nice and subtle if you have quite heavy eye make-up. I think it makes you look really healthy and it is a bargain at only £5.49. What more do you want!







What are your favourite lipsticks for summer?

Let's Go Boho...

May 06, 2013

Seeing as the sun was out on this wonderful bank holiday, I got the urge to bare my legs and wear a 'boho' style dress. I feel so hippy and free in this dress and I love how it can be worn in summer with some simple sandles and jewellery, but it can also be worn in the depths of winter with tights and a leather jacket. I do fake-tan whilst wearing this in the summer though as it being white, could wash out us pale people. I love the amazing embroidery design that it has that is so simple yet so classy.


                            I hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday in this lovely weather! x

     Dress- Zara, Cardi- M&S Shoes-Office, Anklet-Primark , Rings- Topshop, Primark and Kukee and                   Sunglasses- Firmoo
