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.

Four ways to wear disco pants!

Standard

 

I bought my disco pants from Missguided.co.uk, you can get shinier styles and different colours too.

First look: Tailored chic

Pair with an embellished shirt tucked in accompanied by fierce heels. I wear mine with leopard print heels and this shirt below which is also from Missguided.co.uk (Now £17.49 in the sale) Check out Vero Moda to for some lovely embellished pieces too.

Topshop have some great floral camisoles and vests. Such as these; floral lace back vest £30 and pansy print crochet collar top £34

Third look: Rock it up

Wear with a denim jacket and vest top with chunky jewellery and peep toe shoe boots. This look would look really good with some studded shoe boots too.

Disco pants don’t have to be dressy, you can just throw on a chunky oversized jumper! Check out New Look’s selection of knitwear.

How I spent my Sunday…

Standard

I’ve decided to write a post each Sunday to talk about what I got up to 🙂

So here are the main things I did today:

1) painted and decorated my nails with nail varnish and nail art pen from Topshop, and realised I don’t have the steadiest hand and am not the most patient person when it comes to waiting for nail varnish to dry!

Here’s the result ( I went for simple spots with a stripe feature on the thumb nail):

2) Enjoyed the sun in the garden and walked one of the kittens on a lead!

3) Groomed the big cat, who now has a very shiny coat

4) Got my finger massacred by the kitten (after I’d done my nails) Thought I’d spare the gore and add a black and white picture! Unfortunately because of this close up you can also see how inaccurate my spots were!…

5) Watched The Voice UK. There are some great singers, especially Ruth and Jaz.

6) Wrote this

I hope my next few Sundays are a bit more interesting.

Wait for the next instalment!

California-Cool!

Standard
California-Cool!

Bit late with this post as we all probably know the whole laid-back california-cool club tropicana look is in this season but I’m feeling the need for a holiday, which inspired me to finally write it!

So here are some lovely things I’ve found which tie in with this trend.

This top from Lipsy is great for flinging over denim hotpants for a laid back look, £28.

Sparkly things!

Standard

So I got an email from A Wear today and there was a lovely embellished top which inspired me to write this post about pretty sparkly tops!

So here’s the top from AWear that caught my eye £50. So pretty and the scalloped edge is very on-trend.
