The Races

A couple of weeks ago, we went to the horse races and had a bloody brilliant time as well as a lot of wine!!! Unfortunately we didn't get any good pictures of our outfits but we did get a couple of selfies ;) I wore a black floral embroidered prom style dress teamed with some black kitten heels and a black fascinator and added a baby yellow belt to add a splash of colour. 


Kate teamed a black midi dress with cut out sides with her black caged platforms and a cream and black fascinator, although the weather was a bit shoddy (good ol' England ey) we had a great time and even won a little bit of money!!


Can't wait to go again!!!!! 🏇🏇🏇🏇

Try Something Different

So today I have decided to try something different and wear a kimono I have owned for years but don't think I have worn! This kimono is from Primark, however, I have pinned the corners round to create more of a drape style top! Experiment with your clothes, try pinning, cutting or decorating to create a new item of clothing from maybe something you don't like anymore! Reuse! Recycle!

Eyelash Update

So I should have updated sooner but here it is! Within one week of using the L'oreal Paris Renewal Lash Serum, my eyelashes were back to original length and I really started to notice how long my bottom lashes were getting. I'm now really starting to notice how long my lashes are!! I feel so happy with how they look now and will continue to keep using this product. I used to also have a gap in my lashes on my right eye and I have noticed that has gone now which I'm even more pleased about as I would spend time trying to get my lashes sitting evenly. So overall very happy with this product and would highly recommend! Let me know your views on this product and your experiences! :)

Summer Colour Pop

With the weather on a high, outfits are hard to put together when it's so hot so I have created this great outfit to keep you cool in the burning heat. This outfit is great due to the light and floaty fabrics to help keep you from getting too hot. I used the acid green top from a previous post (£9.99 from NewLook) and the trousers also from a previous post (£16.99 from NewLook), the shoes are a new buy at just £17.99 from NewLook they are great to add to a simple black dress or do some great colour blocking with. The necklace is also another previous post at just £7.99 from NewLook. Yes this outfit is all from NewLook but that's what makes it great because it is affordable and the whole outfit is just over £50!!!! Great for when you want to be bang on trend but don't want to spend too much to achieve it. My bracelets I am wearing are Links of London, they are the sweetie bracelet and the xs turquoise sweetie bracelet which are great for adding that personal touch to an outfit by creating your own charm story! Add some bright nail varnish and you are away! Be adventurous and experiment!!!! :)

Summer time

Why not match the colour of your nails to the colour of your blouse. This New Look cami (£9.99) is a great way to add colour to your summer wardrobe. It would work really well with some printed trousers or a pair of light denim skinny jeans. XKX

Green nails

A very long over due picture of what the 'Venus flytrap' nail varnish from Topshop looks like on. Not perfectly applied (sorry, I'm right handed and on my left hand I've chipped my nail. Not good....) This is two coats applied.  XKX

Crimped Hair


Yep I plaited my hair last night after I washed it and left it to dry overnight, such a kids hairstyle but I don't care! Try something different with your hair and experiment :) 


I then put my straw hat on which I can't wait to wear next week when we get our good weather back :) my hat was actually from Primark like 2 years ago and was mens, I don't have a large head but it was the only hat I could find that fitted my head right without looking ridiculous :p 





Midi Dress Outfit

Not a very good photo but I live this outfit for a hot summers day :) the dress was from NewLook, however it is old and no longer sold but its just an Aztec print midi dress and I know they are still very popular at the moment, I also teamed it just with a cropped denim jacket just for when it does get a little chilly, this jacket is actually an aged 9-10 jacket from Asda :p and is very old but yea don't just limit yourself to adult clothing because I have found some great clothes in the past in the kids section! I've found an age 12-13 averages as a size 8 and age 14-15 as a size 10 but obviously this will vary. Get creative and get looking! :)

Night Out

Sorry it's late guys, had yet again another busy weekend, unfortunately I didn't have time to take a picture on the night as I was in such a hurry so you won't be able to see my makeup :( which I was so happy with and my hair which was up in a high big bun, I got complimented on how nice it was aswell :s so sorry but I promise next time I will and I should be going out this weekend so I promise I will do it!!! So I've recreated my outfit to show you all :) I absolutely loved this outfit, I was so chuffed with how it all went together and the bit of skin I did show just gave it that feminine feel!

Today's Outfit

My new trousers which were only £16.99 from NewLook, such a bargain that I couldn't resist to buy another similar pair which I will post tomorrow so keep your peepers peeled!!! Keep it simple with a plain top or crop top and then add a statement necklace just to give it that edge :) the light fabric is also great for warm days so you won't get too hot!!

Outfit

This dress was from missguided.co.uk, don't think they do it anymore but I'm sure someone would be selling it on eBay!! Loved it!!!

New Foody Favourite

Now this blog is about everything and anything so I have found a new food favourite which I just loooovveee :) over the last two months, I have been receiving graze box's, if your not too sure what these are check out the website, www.graze.com, I love my graze box's and the snacks are so tasty! In my last box I received some applewood smoked beef jerky. I have never tried it before but have always looked at beef jerky in the shops wanting to try it, until now and man I love it!! I also read that it's locally sourced, so when browsing Waitrose I came across it!!!! You guys need to taste this, I love my food so I will be blogging about food as well, I'm not sure if all Waitrose stores will stock this product but have a look in your local store and let me know what you think!!!


New Shoes!!!!

Shoes really are a girls best friend and these are one of my best finds! At just £19.99 from NewLook, these shoes mean you can follow the fashion, look and feel great for just a small fee :) 
They also have this style in plain black, red or black and white!!! Treat yourself and pamper your feet :)

Topshop nail polish and new makeup bag.

Today I bought this cute little makeup bag from Primark only £3. So I've spent the evening de-cluttering my usual make up bag then squishing everything into this one. I don't know what it is but I can't help to be drawn to makeup bags. Ofcourse it's the beauty products inside that really matter, but makeup bags are like clothes for beauty products and I like to think my makeup should be stored in something cute.

 I picked this Topshop nail polish up on a whim just after I found some money left on a gift voucher from my birthday. (Always a lovely surprise.) I love the Topshop makeup range, and I really think that for a high street store, they haven't compromised on the aesthetics and the quality of the products. The nail polishes have the cutest packaging with the white lids and black spots, they really stand out from other brands. 'Venus flytrap' is great for this summer and will brighten up and compliment any outfit. 
The formula is perfection too-it goes on perfectly smooth in two thin coats and gains all opacity. This is my new favourite colour and I'll definitely be picking up more Topshop polishes in the future. Nail varnishes are priced at £5 or £6 each.

So you know what the colour looks like on there will be more pictures to follow.

Shopping Finds :)

Items that I have found today whilst shopping :)
All items are available now within the stores mentioned and all of an affordable price :)
Happy Shopping guys and sorry about my messy bedroom :p (we are all guilty of a messy bedroom once and a while, i am also in the middle of an extension of my house so thats why i have no carpet :) )
This t-shirt i found in Primark, haven't shopped there for a looooonnngggg time but they have really turned things around and have some star buys in there at the moment. This mickey top was an absolute must at only £6, you can't go far wrong. 
 I am undecided as to whether i keep it normal length or cut into a crop, suggestions are more than welcome :) cutting a t-shirt is a simple way of turned a boring t-shirt style into a fun crop that you can team with high-waisted jeans or shorts and great for the summer, just to bare a little skin. Cropped tops also look great with a midi skirt :)
 As cropped tops are my favorite at the moment, I couldn't help buying this one from NewLook for just £9.99, with the aztec print adding that detail to the outfit so it is easy to leave just like this or team a simple gold statement necklace and some gold bracelets to just take it that bit further. The elasticated waist band is also a great added extra and a bit of something different to the standard crops on the high street at the moment.
 Some more NewLook finds for you, this turquoise top is great for the summer, a light fabric that just sits lovely and is so easy to dress up or dress down and if you are not brave enough to go mad with the colour, this top is great to add that splash of colour to any outfit. This top was again £9.99 and comes in a range of other great colours.
This is yet another great find from NewLook, another statement necklace that can just finish off that perfect outfit, with the gold on black, it is pretty much a necklace that can go with any outfit. This necklace cost me £7.99 but is a great piece that can make that outfit!

New shoes

(Life is too short not to) wear red shoes. I have been wanting a pair of these for aages now. (Well, a couple of months) when I found them in Primark I knew these beauties would be coming home with me. I know, I know, I can't believe these babies are from primark either! It seems they have really upped their game recently and I continue to be impressed by their range of heels and cute pumps. Only a mere £12 they are a bargain and I can't wait to wear them out. Perfect with black skinny jeans or cute bodycon midi dresses.
