Embracing the Braces - OOTD

Top – Zara
Jeans – New Look

Boredom is expensive. I seem to be spending most of my summer break (from university) wondering around many retail stores buying clothes I really don’t need. This top was one of them. I’ve notice for many blogs and vlogs that zara seem to be having a really good summer sale and I thought I would investigate, seeing as I can only afford sale items because I have spent sooo much money lately :(

I spied this top hanging in a dishevelled sales rack and fell in love with the print. As I pulled (or more or less yanked) it out of the rack I noticed the brace detailing, giving the ditzy print on the tee an edger look. Perfect with denim and I was originally excited to wear with some denim cut off short. But alas the wonderful British weather doesn’t last long and soon turns grey, hence I wore with jeans today but I think is still looks good! What do you think?

I’ve also started buying for the autumn/winter. Shocking I know! But I will always now live by the motto ‘Buy it when you see it’! I learnt this lesson the hard way many times before so I have brought knitwear, an umbrella and boots! Blog coming soon!

Hope your having a good week

Summer Lips!

I found a gorgeous lipstick whilst completing a boring food shop at Morrison’s. It has become a bit of a habit when walking round the supermarket to take a detour to the make-up stand (I have become an expert on Rimmel the amount of time I’ve spent looking at everything) and sometimes I find a little gem!

Rimmel - Moisture renew lipstick in soft coral (600)

I wish I found this lipstick before I went holiday; it’s a perfect colour for the summer!

Only problem with it is that it has a slight shimmer in the lipstick, but sometimes a little shimmer is nice in the summer.

What is your favourite summer lipstick?

Holiday OOTD @ the Zoo

On one of the only sunny days on my holiday in Newquay my boyfriend and I took a trip to the zoo. Seeing as the sun was shining for a change I decided to get out a holiday classic...

The Maxi Dress....and only £8 from Asda. A beautiful baragin!

Maxi Dress – from Asda £8
Khaki Draped Cardi – from Primark £7 (I think?)
Black plated belt – from New Look £5 (for 2 different colours)
Handbag – from Accessorize £32 (I think, but now it’s in the summer sale for £14) :(
Worn with flip-flops

I didn’t realise until looking back at these pictures how coordinated I was with the surrounding of the zoo, I think my boyfriend was tempted to leave me there :)

No line-up of nail polishes would not be complete without a bit of Barry M....

Barry M - pale purple – I love this colour its sooo pretty!

Barry M - mint green – this isn’t a usual colour I go for, but its bright and summery

Barry M - pink flaming – a more of a brighter colour for the summer

Eyeko tea rose – I love pinks and this is a lovely summery dark pink shade

Topshop – Nice ‘n’ Neutral – perfect neutral shade for all year round

No.17 High Gloss – Raspberry Mocha – a new favourite of mine (featured in a previous blog post) perfect with a summer tan!

What are your favourite summer nail polishes?

Happy Feet thanks to Vivianna and Lush :)

I thought I would treat my feet to some pampering after reading Vivianna’s blog post she tried the Stepping Stone Foot Scrub from Lush and I thought I would give it ago myself.

As it's flip-flop weather I gave my toes the full attention of a mini pedicure!

I started with the Stepping Stone Foot Scrub. It made my feet feel super soft and smelt amazingly of citrus flavours. The scrub takes away horrible dry skin from the feet and the oils and cocoa butter adds the soft moisturized feeling. I can’t wait to use this again and again; it feels like a mini spa for my feet. (please read Vivianna’s Blog for more of a review)

(it broke into several pieces when I tried breaking a small piece off to use, it is supposed to look more like a foot, but look on Vivianna’s blog for a better look at the stone) it was a bargain at only £2.75!

To make my feet feel even softer I smothered my feet in my favourite body butter, N-Spa Coconut ice cream body cream. It was a gift for my (birthday and it smells delicious! I believe you can get it in all different scents from Asda and other supermarkets.

And to finished I added a new nail polish I picked up today. No. 17’s High Gloss polish in Raspberry Mocha! Such a lovely colour for the summer as it really compliments a tan.

My feet feel amazing; I think this might have to become a weekly pampering occurrence!

What do you think?
