Here are a few things that I have been loving recently…
1. Alexander McQueen Dress
This dress may be as fussy as it comes but that’s what I love. It so pretty and the fact that it’s so over the top just means that wearing this you’ll always stand out.
2. Zara Cape
I have probably been watching too much of Arabella Golby’s YouTube videos but I have been lusting over so many capes recently and this is definitely my favourite, just look at that furry hood!
3. Bow Clip
This is my current favourite hair accessory. It’s so pretty and is such an easy way of smartening up any look.
4. Peaky Blinders
Ah blimey this is one of my favourite hours of the week at the moment! It’s so dramatic, cinematically pleasing and stylish. Definitely one of the best tv programmes on now.
5. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine
For my birthday I received this lovely lipstick in the colour mutine and well it’s a delightful little number. I’ve been wearing it most days since.
I’ve always wanted to try a DIY french manicure set but I was concerned that when I used it, they were going to look shockingly bad. I have to say with this little Bourjois set I have been very pleasently surprised! The ingenious little brush for the white tips is great and makes it super easy to achieve delicate tips. With a few tiny touch ups throughout the week I definitely think that they last a good 7 days. And to me 7 days of prettiness is pretty darn good.
Overall I’m super happy with these little wonders. They have certainly become part of my daily life.
I feel like blogging has slipped away from me recently with everything that’s been going on. There are times when something has to slide when life gets just that little too busy to manage everything. But I’ve made a pledge to myself, and now to you, that I’m back.
So now onto my shoe of the week as what’s a better apology than an extremely sparkly pair of flats? I think this pair from Boden does just the trick!
These shoes are beyond stunning! I would wear them with a simple dress with a full skirt and a dash of red lipstick. Although frankly I would wear these all the time, around the house even, because of how utterly gorgeous they are.
Last month it was one Emma and now onto another very special one. I’ve loved Emma Stone ever since Easy A but my love for her style has grown significantly over the past year or so. What I love is that although she always looks ladylike she does it in a fun way whether that’s with a print, a modern design or slightly disheveled hair. Her style just exudes her personality which is something that I have always admired. One absolutely lovely lady with an equally lovely style…
Strictly Come Dancing is well and truly back and it is making me yearn for constant sparkles! It is definitely one of my favourite parts of the week, although I must admit that I do get my daily dose with It Takes Two as well. These glittery lovelies from ASOS seem to embody the whole show perfectly in all of its over the top sparkliness…
It is of course the fragranced body mist from Zoella’s new product range Zoella Beauty. If you watch her videos on YouTube like me then you will know what I mean when I simply say that it is very Zoe. She has definitely catered to her younger audience with its citrusy and somewhat sugary smell but that isn’t to say that it doesn’t have a certain sophistication and charm. The scent is fresh and light- I guess exactly as described it is a blissful mist. The packaging is equally sweet, with the beautiful pink metallic lid and quaint dotty bottle that’ll look cute on any dressing table.
Overall I like it, a lot. It’ll definitely be my go to scent on my more relaxed days.
This week I’ve chosen a pair of shoes that will take you anywhere at any time in your life…
These lovely Saint Laurent heelsare definitely sturdy shoes but they still have a certain charm to them. I’d wear them with a high neck jumper, a woollen A-line skirt and a pair of black tights for a relaxed winter daytime look.
My shoe choice today is straight from my birthday wishlist…
These little ballet flats are absolutely gorgeous! They are a lovely shape, my favourite colour and ooze sheer quality. I can’t wait to don these with jeans and a Breton top for a classic relaxed look.
I bought this Barry M nail varnish very recently and although granted one may class it as more of a summer shade I really like it. It’ll be gracing my tootsies tonight.
Marks & Spencer jeggings- although the word, and in fact the thought of these, is hardly desirable I have to say that they are my go to pair of jeans. They are so comfortable and I think that with the elastic waistband hidden they look just as good as normal jeans too. I got my second pair today.
Bates Motel aka my new Netflix favourite. I have been enthralled by this recently. It’s quirky, edgy and a little creepy.
Frankly this season’s must have, the blanket poncho, makes me a very happy bunny! They are so cosy and yet chic at the same time; for me this is absolute perfection. I have not stopped wearing mine since I bought it. So I’ve put together my top five favourites…
