A Sweet Scent For Summer…

There’s one thing I look for in a fragrance and that is longevity, for a fragrance to last a full day is a great thing, I want my fragrance to be sprayed on a morning when I leave the house and still be evident when I get back home on an evening. 
I always liked Angel for it’s fragrance and it’s longevity but Angel Eau Sucree has a sweetness to it that I really like and so with it being a limited edition fragrance I’m keeping this one for special occasions like friends weddings etc, there’s a few this Summer and I’m going to be smelling super sweet for them. Bliss!

A Summer Wedding To Remember…

For those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen I attended the most beautiful wedding last weekend, two of my closest friends got wed and what a beautiful weekend it was.
The sun shone brightly, the dress code was black tie, the venue represented them well… everything was clean cut and most importantly WHITE, the band weren’t your average wedding band, it felt like they were an established chart hitting band, everything was elegant and simply perfect with a great mix of people.

I bought my dress from Biba, I love the way it fitted my hourglass figure, pulling in at the waist to excentuate my curves and to show off my smallest feature, my waist, the colour was just so elegant with the slight slit up to the knee on one side.
I’ve always been a fan of emerald green dresses ever since I wore the most beautiful taffeta party dress as a child which was emerald green. One thing about this bottle green dress was that no one else at the wedding had it, I’m not sure if Biba is just somewhere guests hadn’t thought to look or what but I loved it and it got so many compliments. I would love another occasion to be able to wear this dress again soon as I felt like a princess and due to the colour and style it’s perfect for any season.
My sparkly shoes are from Karen Millen and luckily I get to wear those beauties in a few weeks with my beautiful bridesmaid dress.

I would love to relive the weekend again but onwards to the next one as I plan a best friend’s hen parties for her in a couple of weeks of which I’m a bridesmaid for, I simply can’t wait!

Out To Play In My Playsuit…

Wow, what a week it’s been. I’ve been full of busy with work, preparing exciting things for the blog and last weekend one of my best friends hen parties in London which consisted of copious amounts of prosecco and cocktails and fabulous rooftop bars, a very classy affair I must say. 
 
It was getting so close to Jen’s hen weekend when I had began packing all my outfits and had very specific items planned, but I just couldn’t stop thinking about this little Reiss playsuit that they had very tactfully been dropping into my email inbox for about 3 weeks prior when I got to a point, Reiss had got to me. 
Believe me I’m a sucker for Reiss so it didn’t take me much to be swayed to heading into town to get this little number tried on. 
The moment I put on the ‘Hail’ graphic jacquard playsuit, I fell in love.
 
I fell for this jumpsuit for it’s comfort, it’s easy wearing for day or night events and had a culotte style feel to the shorts, perfectly loose for someone who is thigh conscious like myself. Not only that, but it fitted perfectly to my waist and chest, the perfect shape for my hourglass figure.
I don’t usually like too much print as it can feel fussy on my face however this is a simplistic  yet classy print. This one piece is sure to get a lot of wear this Spring/Summer, I may even get it out again tonight for a friends birthday celebrations, lets see. 

Just Another Mani Monday

This evening I went to get my gel manicure re-done at Nails Inc but obviously the hardest decision of all was which colour to choose, I’m away on one of my best friends hen parties this weekend so the colour had to be right and with only half of my outfit choices made so far, I guess it had to be something fairly neutral that would go with most outfits. 
However I feel the colour and design of your nails says a lot about your personality and your feelings so it really is a big decision considering this one needs to last past the weekend.
 
In Spring/Summertime I quite often have a slight obsession for pastel shades but this season my thing seems to be coral, I just can’t get enough of it, it’s such an eye popping colour and looks fabulous with almost any outfit, none the less I resisted my coral urge this week and went pastel to fit in perfectly round all my outfits for weekend and I guess to have a slight different look to what I’ve been sporting recently.
 
My choice of colour was Nails Inc Lilly Road and just a subtle touch of Nails Inc Alexa Holographic, I’m absolutely loving it so far plus this mani isn’t even 24 hours old and it’s getting lots of compliments…. clearly a good choice!

Festival Inspiration From 2015 Coachella.

The first of the years big festivals (Coachella) has now been and gone seeing many different styles take to the green fields of the Indio polo grounds yet some of my favourite styles were seen on a few of my favourite fashionista celebrities. 
Celebrities such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Fergie, Kate Bosworth, Kendall Jenner, and Kimberley Garner went for neutral shades, a classy, elegant and contemporary bohemian style. They accessorised up with golden temporary tatoos, hats, headbands, golden chain belts, fringing, over sized sunnies, small crossbody bags simply for the essentials and multiple amounts of fine golden jewellery. 
 
I simply love all of these looks that I have chosen here but for my personal style I would have gone with a style similar to Rosie Huntington Whiteley or Fergie as this is of very similar style to what I would wear on a normal basis anyway.
Rosie’s light and airy Chloe dress is the perfect little number for a hot day at Coachella to feel stylish and cool, the perfect dress for day to night and if she was to attend an ‘Outstanding in the field’ dinner in the rose garden then this is the ideal outfit to feel a  little glam but also not too dressed up for attending the festival itself.
 
Pierce Brosnan was also seen in the VIP area working a loosely fitted white shirt and dark chinos combo looking stylishly suave, the perfect look for a guy for looking stylish and keeping cool in that hot dessert heat.

Summer May Have Come & Gone….

Following a crazy busy Summer of a holiday to Ibiza, friends 30th birthdays, hen parties, weddings, one of which I was bridesmaid for and lots of work and events… what better time than the beginning of Autumn to get my blog going again, I’ve really missed posting but just not had time to do much with it, so here I am.

I’m fully embracing Autumn in both cosmetics and fashion at the minute and I can’t wait to share a few of my favourite Autumn buys with you.
I’m experimenting with different looks too and this really does give me so much excitement for the season ahead. Everywhere I look at the moment I’m seeing inspiration for both beauty and fashion, even just in the colours of the leaves. In the meantime I hope you enjoy a couple of my sunset photos from my time in Ibiza this Summer.
