February's Most Wanted

Bra ♦ Septum ring ♦ Scrunchie ♦ Boots ♦ Plimsolls ♦ iPhone case 

Hi guys, hope you're doing well! I've been back and forth to London for the last two weeks preparing for dressing at Catwalk Edit which kick-started LFW on Thursday. It was great fun, but we had to work fast! I discovered some amazing new brands and my model was just lovely. Anyway, I've finally slowed down enough to sit down and write up my February wish list, maybe you'll see something you like too.

At Catwalk Edit, I discovered the beautiful lingerie of Fred and Ginger. Bras are something I don't normally splash out on, but I just love this pretty pale pink one. I've lusted after faux septum rings for ages and I've finally found the perfect one - this delicate gold design. Unfortunately, this is actually for a pierced nose, but hopefully they will release a faux version, fingers crossed! I love these bow scrunchies; they look great with a high ponytail and wrapped around a messy bun. As you can never have enough pairs of shoes, I've sought out two totally different but equally as cool ones this month. First up, these hiker-style boots are perfect for everyday, effortless styling when you want to add a little tomboy edge to your outfit. Second, these plimsolls are kind of naughty, but I think they're awesome! I guess you'd just have to an choose the appropriate time to wear them. I recently joined the elite and got myself an iPhone, so I'm on the lookout for cute cases. As I have a 5C in green, I like to show off the colour so this clear one is perfect. 

Which is your favourite?

Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight

I have always suffered with dry lips and no matter what I do - exfoliate, slaver with lip balm and Vaseline - I'm often left with them still cracked and flaky. However when Philosophy told me I had won their Facebook competition and could choose any product I liked, I took it as an opportunity to perhaps solve my problem and picked their lip therapy balm, kiss me tonight.

As soon as I applied it last thing at night, it felt smooth and cooling. It smells sweetly minty; like Kendall Mint Cake. When I woke up the next day, my lips felt reassuringly soft and flake free. I decided to apply some more in the morning as it was a cold day and I knew that wouldn't help my lips. 

I've tried Nivea, Vaseline and Carmex but nothing has ever really worked up until now. For £16 a tub it's not exactly cheap but I think once I'm all out I will repurchase as it really does the trick. In fact it's so brilliant my boyfriend has even had a sneaky go of it!

Antler Vanity Case & Leopard Boots

Hat - Vintage ♦ Glasses - Replay ♦ Jumper - Boohoo ♦ Leggings - New Look ♦ Boots - Matalan ♦ Case - Antler (vintage)

Here's the first outfit post of 2015, I hope you guys like it. I'm so obsessed with these boots - not only are they incredibly comfortable, at £9 in the sale they were a total steal! Despite their gaudiness, I adore them and think they make a plain look more daring and interesting. My boyfriend absolutely hated them when we saw them in Matalan, but hopefully this outfit will change  his mind.  What do you think? I'm also loving this hat, it was such a great find.

Jack's nan bought me this lovely vintage case for Christmas and I love it so much. It's a vanity case but I've been using it as a bag and have had so many compliments on it. I hope the broom here hasn't ruined the shot for you guys, I should really check the background before I take pics!

January's Most Wanted

Deer screen - Argos ♦ Mint lipstick - Lime Crime ♦ Vintage fawn jumper - Candy Candy ♦ I Origins DVD - Amazon ♦ Collar bib - River Island ♦ Flower globe pendant - Resity
So Christmas is well and truly over, but that doesn't mean I have to stop wishing for stuff! This month, I'm lusting over these lovely items. Have a look and see if anything takes your fancy too...

 I have no idea where I would put this decorative screen in my bedroom, but hey, lets just say I'm saving for my bottom drawer? Regular visitors of this blog will know that I've really got into to weird and wonderful lip colours, and my latest obsession is this gorgeous mint. This cute fawn sweater is on sale at the moment, and it's taking everything in me to not click and buy it - there's a high chance I will. I Origins is out on DVD and Bluray and, after seeing it with my best friend in the cinema, I'm desperate to get my hands on a copy. It's such a brilliant movie. And check out this collar bib - what a great idea! I really need to get myself one of these, maybe I could make one myself? And lastly, I'm in love with this beautiful globe pendant I found on Etsy by Resity. Their delicate jewellery is definitley worth a look and is pretty reasonable. 

What do you wish for this January?

LUSH Magic Wand Bubble Bar

I was very lucky this Christmas to receive two boxes stuffed full of Lush goodies. I've never tried anything from Lush before but have always longed to and I love that they are a completely cruelty free company and environmentally friendly - the plastic-like wrappers can be recycled or put in the compost!

Anyway, this pretty little thing is the Magic Wand Bubble Bar and was part of my Snow Fairy gift box. It has a sweet scent that reminds me of lollipops. After scrubbing the tub free of dog hairs, I was ready for a, ahem, relaxing bath! With this product, you simply crumble it into the water whilst you run the bath. A little goes a long way; I only needed a small amount to create fabulous bubbles and turn the water a gorgeous pink. Unfortunately, it hasn't come up as bright in these photographs, but I can assure you you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I also noticed that my skin felt very soft and moisturised. While I was in the bath I decided to shave my legs sans shaving cream and was able to achieve a smooth close shave without any irritation. I think this was down to the Magic Wand in the water - bonus!

Have you ever tried Lush's products? Oh, and Happy New Year!

Black & Lavender lips

Recently, I've become a lot more experimental with my choice of lip colour. As someone who had never quite got red lipstick to work for me, I wanted to try something even bolder. So what's bolder than red? Black of course. Here, I've softened it with an icy lavender colour. I don't know what made me try this out today other than the fact I couldn't decide which colour to go for, but I really love it.

What do you think?

Winter Weekend Break 2014

This weekend, my Mom, Dad, little brother, Alfie (the puppy) and I went to Whitemead in the Forest of Dean for a Christmas weekend break. We stayed in a lovely apartment on the resort and had the most lovely time. We've been coming to Whitemead since we were little so it's a place that's very dear to me. The pictures below are from Taurus Craft Centre which is full of stalls selling vegan and veggie food, handmade gifts, luxury deli items and much more. 

Hope you had a great weekend!
