"Enjoy every moment of your life"


* Gorgeous new makeup storage for my dressing table, simple and in a cute colour combo, perfect from Ikea - also got two more for my bathroom. * New fridge favourite, super energise smoothie from Innocent, which is strawberry, cherry & guarana and comes out the most beautiful purple/pink colour yummy. * Mini Primark haul, trying out some items from the beauty aisle. Neutrals eye shadow palette, hand creams, flamingo false nails, feather festival eyelashes for a hen party, natural eyelashes and a fantastic smelling pineapple & ginger candle. * Cute braid and ponytail in a desk selfie. * New styling loves - I always use Batiste dry shampoo so thought I would give the new Stylist range a go. Decided to buy the Shield My Locks Heat & Shine Spray and Texture Me Texturizing Spray - love them both, they make my hair so soft, smell amazing and offer perfect hold plus how cute is the packaging. * Friday evening beauty routine, including a new pink lemonade peel off face mask which smells amazing. * The latest addition to my growing Essie collection, this time in the shade "Cocktail bling" a gorgeous shade of grey, perfect neutral shade. * Finally went to the hair dressers and had my hair cut to a true lob - read more about my experience below in my blog post.


* New season lovely from Lulu Guinness - the style, the colour, the iconic lips all make this the most beautiful satchel bag. * Following the shopping rule, usually kept for jeans and white t-shirts: when you find the perfect one buy in every colour! This skater dress with t-shirt overlay is my perfect everyday dress and is cute in both solid black and this vintage floral print - good old ASOS (just need a few more colours/prints please). * Amazing documentary about Christian Louboutin on channel 4, a whole hour about shoes what more could a girl ask for. Watch catch up - The world's most luxurious shoes* My new lust brand, Self Portrait dresses are to die for!! All the intricate detailing is beautiful and sheer luxury only downside is the hefty price tag attached but would be a perfect investment piece for a special occasion. * Thought I was over my pompom keyring obsession until I saw these cuties on the @dune Instagram feed and bam I back in love, need them both!! * One amazing afternoon in the rain these goodies arrived and brighten up my day! Stunning marble/wood effect phone case all the way from Italy via Etsy, the perfect cover for my phone. Plus these rosegold swing earrings from ASOS, a great everyday earring and the mix of colour and stones is beautiful. * Saw this outfit in Look magazine and fell in love instantly, the products are great but the styling is just gorgeous and an outfit I could totally see myself wearing. Have spent last week watching Newlook.co.uk for the necklace to arrive. * Continuing my obsession with burgundy tones with my new accessory additions, felt fedora from Accessorize and oversized leopard print scarf from ASOS.


* Came across the cutest little ice cream parlour, very 50's and so many yummy flavours - I went for chocolate and banana ice cream topped with cream, marshmallows, chocolate sauce and a wafer..yummy! * Surprise tickets from hubby to see Legally Blonde the musical, the perfect way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon (only downside was in an outdoor theatre which was a little chilly. A very good show just a little too much pink for hubby. * Adding some much needed green into my lounge with this plant from Ikea and it's fabulous gold pot, great addition to the corner of the room.
