Things I Love…

Standard

It’s been a while since I published a blog post but I’m back again with this post about things I’m loving at the moment.

Number 1:

My gorgeous new faux leather shorts from Topshop which I only just bought today! Cannot wait to wear them. My plan is to pair them with a lovely black shirt, embellished with gold beading on the cuffs and collar, which I got from Missguided a while ago (think I’ve blogged about it before) but have never worn, partly due to the fact I didn’t have anything to wear with it…but that’s all changed now these shorts have entered my life!! Definitely worth the £30 as I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them. Also the faux leather isn’t too fake looking or shiny compared to some I’ve seen, the pictures can’t really convey the niceness! They have gold zip details on the outside leg too which I haven’t shown close-up in the pictures.

Number 2:

My gorgeous pink patent Ted Baker Mardun bag, which I love even more because of the bargain price I got it for at the Ted Baker outlet in Ashford! I now have the most organised bag ever- there’s a home for everything. One of the inside pockets is used for my phone, one for my keys, one for my lip gloss…etc etc. The outside pocket is unfortunately slightly too small to fit my 13” laptop when zipped up but I can still slot it in and not do the zip up; this is isn’t really a problem for me though as I rarely take my laptop out with me.

This is the lovely bull dog lining inside:

Number 3: My lovely Bobbi Brown cream shadow. I love this as it lasts for ages and you can build up the product nicely if you fancy a stronger looking eye, which is what I do for nights out. I also like to add a line of liquid eyeliner too. This colour is Galaxy (no.9 ) but there are loads to choose from, I spent a while deciding! Again, this is slightly pricey at £18 but a good investment.

my recent purchases..shoes, maxi skirt, bag.

Standard

I haven’t written a new post in toooo long! Don’t know really what I’ve been doing! Back now though 🙂

So here are a few things I’ve bought recently:

These cute Carvela flats are good for the summer (if we ever get some sunny weather, that is!) I wore them to an interview the other day with the cream chiffon-sleeved top (Miss Selfridge) from a previous post of mine and my coral jeans with leopard print bag and  long gold birdcage necklace to accessorise. Haven’t heard about the job yet, but have my fingers crossed!

This is my new floral maxi skirt from ASOS, it was in the sale so not sure if it’s still available. Only worn it once due to poor weather! Hoping to have a holiday at some point where it can be put to more use! I wanted a similar one from River Island but they unfortunately didn’t have it in my size and it wasn’t available online, so this ASOS one was a good alternative.

Definitely don’t need any more bags but couldn’t resist this colour pop bag from Mango. Brings a little brightness and statement to a black outfit 🙂 Also in the sale for £24.99 so couldn’t say no.

I had my eye on this one from Ted Baker but felt I couldn’t justify the purchase so settled for the cheaper Mango one, not as lovely as Ted’s though! It comes in a really cute pink colour too. Might get one some day! They’re actually in the sale at the moment for £90. I’m such a fan of Ted Baker accessories, they had a cabinet full of lovely purses and bags in a John Lewis store I went in, I had to be dragged away!

In-keeping with this red theme, here are my fun union jack nails. Bit time-consuming but quite like the result. Started off with white varnish at the bottom then waited for it to dry and carefully painted on the red stripes then used a cocktail stick dipped into the blue nail varnish to finish them off. (And then added a clear topcoat to seal).
