Beach Attire

Today I'm Wearing.....

An animal print Primark bikini and a sheer multi coloured dress from NeverFullyDressed.

Holiday Essentials

Holidays for me are all about staying safe in the sun (nothing spoils a holiday quicker than being burnt) and reading books!

I have used Piz Buin oil free sunscreen for years now and love it! This is the best suncream I have ever used as it is so easy to apply and doesn't leave my skin greasy-a no no if you can suffer from acne like me! My whole family and fiance's family now also love it!

My kindle is another must have when I'm away. I was slightly unsure for a while if I should invest in a kindle, or if I'd miss reading an 'actual' book, but I am now so glad that i did! The screen is really easy to read and I got used to it straight away! In addition, I always read about 12 books when I am away for 2 weeks (you can imagine the weight of those in a suitcase) so its a fab way of storing all my must have holiday reads.

Boxing day kaftan

I personally find that Beach wear can be slightly tricky. I'm always on the look out for styles which are floaty, light and wont crease! this kaftan from next is perfect for the beach as it is light, patterned and easy to throw on - with no creases after being squashed into a beach bag!

I hope everyone has had a safe and enjoyable christmas and boxing day!

French Twist

When I was younger I always wore my hair in this style and I have recently rediscovered and fallen in love with this slightly different take on a 'ponytail' style.

1) Tie hair in a low, loose ponytail
2) Part hair just above the hairband
3) Pull the ponytail over and push it through the parted section

Voila



Dogtooth Days

Today I'm Wearing......

A Dogtooth skirt from Ark (here) with Zara High Cut boots (here) and a Forever 21 top and jacket. The necklace is in the style of J.Crew's bubble necklace.

Classic Twist

A classic fitted dress with a difference. This fitted dress is an ideal smart work outfit for a day to evening look. I love the neckline and the slight twisted/ruched bust. (similar styles herehere and here)

Wear It Another Way

I love this dusty pink sheer leopard print top! It has already featured on my blog (here) but I wore it out for dinner the other night with a skirt and my go-to necklace. No one can wear something new all the time, but it is still great to be able to wear the same items in a slightly different way.

Black and Silver

I love the idea of a really thick, warm jumper. But in reality, I get so overheated indoors. This Forever 21 jumper is a perfect compromise - it's 'wintery' yet not too thick!

Jumper - Forever 21
Trousers - River Island
Cami - Marks and Spencer
Pumps - Primark

Scotland!

Sorry for the lack of posting recently! I went to the Highlands for a holiday of sightseeing and walking! I had a fabulous time and the views were incredible but the wifi at the hotel was not particularly fast and so I couldn't upload photos successfully!

Since being back I have also been really unwell :-( which again contributed to the delay in posting!

Here are some of the sights from my trip to the Highlands:

Walking around the Loch

Loch Ness - Urquhart Castle

All that Sparkles

I love everything that glitters/ sparkles at the moment.....nails, tops, shoes and bags!

Since I now have beautiful long nails (fake!!), I have been painting my nails nearly every night. I painted them red and then added a glitter nail varnish (3 coats) on my ring finger! I love the results and quite a few people have commented on them.
Red: Bourjois
Glitter: Rimmel 500 Disco Ball

I also bought these gorgeous glittery flats from Primark. I have this style in so many different colours and patterns as they are unbelievably comfortable and a great price.

Falsies

I have had a terrible habit of biting my nails recently! Yuk. It seems when I get slightly stressed I chew on my nails. To combat this habit I bought Elegant Touch Totally Bare fake nails in Tesco. They are the 'short' length and were a whitish/'plain' colour to start with.

I applied them with the glue provided and then I filed them down - they were far too long for my liking. I then painted them with Nails Inc magnetic polish in Trafalgar Square but without using the magnet!
