June Wishlist


Another month of amazing finds, a few bargains as well as a couple of indulgent goodies, that i couldn't resist adding in...thought i had out grown my Mulberry bag obsession - clearly not, after discovering this beautiful Alexa satchel. A classic designer piece, brought upto date with a woven leather and raffia pattern and best of all now in the sale with 40% off.

My favourite items this month would have to be this stunning statement dress from ASOS, such beautiful intricate flower/beading detail but very modern in the fabric and styling - although i love the see-through twist to this dress, not 100% convinced on the tiny playsuit underneath (i would need a little more coverage). Alongside this, is the pinstripe dress, a fashion forward take on a classic. Flattering midi length with the most amazing rainbow print combining stripes and dashes, from a brand i had never heard of before but will definitely be looking at in the future. 

Also this month i seem to be channeling my inner child, with some very playful items - the quirky unicorn flats and a flamingo tote. Although whimsical, both would definitely be wearable in everyday life especially the tote, perfect for the beach or the gym. The tasseled clutch bag is also a great find, so much detailing - tassels and heavy beading, as well as a tapestry effect back panel, a lot considering it is a highstreet buy at under £25! Kicking myself i didn't buy this last weekend when i saw it...hope it's still there on payday!

Which is your favourite piece?

How to wear: Mixed prints

It has been a little while since i last did a "How to Wear" post...but i was feeling inspired after coming across some gorgeous images on Pinterest. Now everyone loves a print, usually a classic stripe or bold floral but if you really want to step it up, the new style challenge is to mix and match....layering up bold combinations and making a statement.
So here are my top tips for mixing prints like a pro:

1. Start simple by swapping out your solid coloured top for a classic spot or stripe.

2. Then try mixing two prints, ideally with one unifying colour, or play with one print in different sizes.

3. Once you've mastered two prints add a third, but keep it a neutral or monochrome - leopard is a perfect example.

Just remember....match colours not prints, leopard is always a neutral and mixing up print sizes is a great alternative and if you still need some inspiration try out the following combinations:

A bold floral, teamed with a classic stripe or playful gingham



A coloured stripe, mixed with animal print, small florals, spots or just more stripes



Once you have mastered the basics....Go wild and have fun!



For more check out my Mixing Prints board on Pinterest....
How do you like to wear print - one at a time or mixed up? Leave me a comment below on your favourite combinations...

The Glitter Fashionista - Haircare routine

Since having my hair cut into a long bob last year, i have given my haircare routine a shake up - not only because i had about 4 inches taken off but because my hair has become quite dry and damaged. I wanted to show you all the products and tools i use to cleanse / protect / style my hair. This combination of products gives me manageable locks, that are soft and hydrated. Plus through beauty boxes i have discovered lots of new products over the last 6 months and have adopted a couple into my routine, alongside some of my faithful favourites that i have used for years.

The Glitter Fashionista - Haircare routine

Cleanse

First up i wash my hair with the new L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay re-balancing shampoo (which helps with both oily roots and dry ends, perfect for my hair), then coat my hair in the matching conditioner and leave in for around five minutes while i wash/shave my legs/tan etc. Then once washed out i will also add a spritz of the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance leave in conditioner onto the ends of my hair for some added protection. Twice a month i will switch it up and use my OGX Anti-breakage Keratin Oil shampoo instead of the L'Oreal Elvive duo to give an extra boost with the keratin and argan oils. I also find switching it up helps to keep my hair soft and glossy.

Protect

I am going to admit that when i was younger, protecting my hair was something i never thought about but now it is an important step in my routine. First i will start with a new product, coating my hair in Living Proof's Frizz Weightless Styling Spray which helps to eliminate frizz, smooth hair and repel dirt. I normally leave my hair to air dry for half an hour before adding heat, so will spray on VO5 Heat Protect Styling Spray and comb through. Then once my hair is dry, i will always use the Batiste Stylist Heat & Shine Spray - i do this before i straighten or curl my hair. All three products help to protect from heat damage and create shiny smooth hair.

Tools

A few basic tools in my routine... a Birchbox "tangle teaser" style brush, a large paddle brush, actually from Primark, gives me a smooth blowout. A basic drugstore, wide tooth comb perfect for combing through wet hair without causing breakage. Remington Hairdryer, not sure what model as it is about 8 years old, but i always buy my hairdryers from Remington as they work well and last for years. Finally the one item in my entire routine that i couldn't live without! my GHD classic straighteners. Naturally i have thick, curly and coarse hair that without heat intervention leaves me looking like i have a lions mane....so thank god for GHD's. I tried many brands of straighteners when i was younger, mainly because of the price of GHD's however none compare to the effortless, smooth styling achieved - would never go back to cheap alternatives. I am considering also investing in a GHD curling wand, especially if they are as good as the straighteners.

Finishing

I try and keep the finishing products i use to a minimum, so i have narrowed it down to just three. First up dry shampoo, which i will use straight after washing my hair to add a little grit to a fresh blow dry and then on days in between washing to freshen up and add volume back into my hair. I used to be an advocate of the Batiste dry shampoo however i discovered Co-lab Dry Shampoo from Superdrug and much prefer the smell, texture and consistency - I always go for the Paris floral fragrance as i find it light and fresh. Next up once i have curled my hair, which i tend to do everyday now i will add some extra texture, to give an almost beach waves feel and the best spray i have found so far is the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising spray. Lighter than a salt spray but offers both texture and light hold, perfect for loose curls. Finally a product i only tend to use with a updo is my L'Oreal Elnett Stain Hairspray, offers great hold but brushes out easily.

So i have been trying to be good and not buy too much this season (a serious case of overflowing wardrobe), however there are so many gorgeous pieces and trends on the highstreet that i couldn't resist picking up a few key pieces....so a small haul from the last month or so from ASOS, River Island, Lands' End but mainly New Look.


Summer Fashion Haul

1. White print festival kimono - £45 | River Island
A beautiful statement but lightweight jacket, have been layering over a silky cami top and skinny jeans. In love with all the embellished detailing on this this jacket, especially all the blush coloured tassels, makes it look much more expensive.

2. Stripe Bardot Neck Tunic Dress - £14.99 | New Look
Bought the top version of this earlier in the year (featured in Summer Stripes), but decided i needed to go back for the dress. Love the flattering shape and length, the lightweight yet structured fabric and the bold multi stripe print - not normally a red kinda girl but this just looks great against my skin tone.

3. Sleeveless Swing Top In Spot Print - £10 | ASOS
ASOS do the best basics at the moment, offering great classic but with a modern twist. Nothing complicated, this is just a simple swing top that is perfect for warm days teamed with jeans or shorts. I love the drop arm holes, so have been wearing a cute blush bra underneath for a flash of lace.

4. Crossover Slip-on Sandals - £60 | Lands' End
My favourite pair from the new Canvas collection at Lands' End, love the simplistic shape of this slide style and chambray stripe on the straps gives it a very laid back casual summer vibe. I wanted a slip-on pair of sandals but something a little more stylish than traditional flip flops.

5. Slingback gladiator wedges - £35 | River Island
Didn't have any intention of buying more shoes but couldn't resist these. Again love the tassels on the laces (can you see a theme developing here!) but also these are so comfortable with the laced up front offering extra support plus the perfect wedge height which means i can wear all day without pain...bonus!

6. Cream Embroidered Mesh Bardot Neck Top - £22.99 | New Look
The newest addition to my summer wardrobe and another bardot piece, this top has so much lace detailing but again looks more expensive than it was. A slightly fuller style with the lace overlay but the proportions work really well with my skinny jeans. Plus really flattering as the sleeves cover up a part of my arms, that i am not a fan of but because of the lace you still get a flash of flesh.

7. Tie Sleeve Bardot Neck Top - £7.99 | New Look
Another basic piece, more for the weekend or holidays with jeans or shorts. This simple cotton bardot top is great for hot days and would be ideal worn over a bikini. Also a bargain at less than £10.

8. White Floral Print Contrast Sleeve Bomber Jacket - £34.99 | New Look
I mentioned this in my Monthly Favourites #2 - one of the best purchases this season, this bomber jacket has the perfect mix of the statement floral print with simple block colour sleeves. I have been wearing it non stop, with both jeans and my favourite casual LBD - it also made a trip to Wembley, needed to style up my football shirt to make it a little more me.

New Look in particular, is killing it this season with so many gorgeous items and prints, well worth a look especially if you are loving the whole bare shoulders or bomber jacket trend.

Monthly Favourites #2

Back for another month, sharing the food, places, fashion, beauty and entertainment that I'm currently enjoying. 


1. A cult classic in the skincare world, but until recently i had never tried for myself. As one of the more pricey skincare options in Boots, i have always been put off by the price, but after suffering from a bout of bad skin and reading so many rave reviews, decided to do some investigation. I ended up having a Liz Earle facial in my local boots store, to test out the products and afterwards my skin felt amazing so i purchased the starter kit. So pleased with the product, my skin is looking better than it has done in years and super soft too.

2. So a little slow jumping on the Snapchat bandwagon, it has taken me 4 months to work out how to use the filters but now i know how, i am obsessed. So far these are my favourites - hubby thinks i am mad but who wouldn't want to look like a koala or a kitty cat!


3. Thoroughly enjoyed the last two books from the amazing Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power of Who What Wear and when i saw they had released a career inspired book, i knew i needed it. Both these amazing woman have had some killer roles within the fashion industry so who better to get career advice from. Only flicked through so far but already inspired.

4. An odd favourite but have been enjoying a lot of salads as the weather warms up in the UK. This one was a thrown together combo of a Cesar salad (minus the dressing) with additional pancetta and prawns - so yummy.


5. So in love with this, my latest purchase from Bicester Village. After getting my Cambridge satchel for my birthday, i have been on the look out for a smaller purse and have had the new SS16 pink version of this wallet on my wishlist for a few months now but couldn't justify spending almost £100 on a purse, so when a trip to Bicester came up i jumped at the chance and was able to find an older version of the Stacy wallet in this beautiful minty aqua colour. The perfect size and shape for smaller bags but still plenty of room for all my cards.

6. Wasn't looking for new shoes, but when i saw these i knew i needed to try them on. The perfect wedge, gives me some much needed height but are super comfy i can go all day without any pain (which is a massive bonus). I love the lace up front and especially the tassel detailing on the laces. Perfection from River Island.



7. Have always been a fan of iced latte's, and they are a staple in my life during the summer, so was happy to find these fridge favourites in the chilled aisle in Sainsburys. Great for on the go, and in the morning plus really refreshing - just wish they were a little larger as you don't get much (always end up with a venti size in Starbucks)

8. A trend piece from New Look, that i haven't taken off since i bought it. Looks amazing with both dresses and jeans and is the perfect transitional jacket. I love the balance of the bold floral print with the block colour sleeve, adding a touch of feminine to quite a masculine shaped garment. 


9. If you haven't tried this product yet, what are you waiting for? I have always used the Garnier summer body lotion but after a streaky incident a few months ago, decided it was time to upgrade and try something new. After getting a recommendation from a colleague at work i decided to try this in shower formula and it is amazing. Applies evenly without streaks, leaves skin moisturised and best of all i can just apply during my normal shower routine. A little pricey but well worth it for a gorgeous subtle summer glow.

10. No explanation needed...was so excited for season six of this show, and still hooked.

Would love to hear what your monthly favourites are?

Badges or patches, whatever you call them are an interesting but easy trend. Working best on casual items - jeans, t-shirts/shirts and the SS16 must have, the bomber jacket but would also look amazing on a more girly piece like a dress, balancing out the feminine. This is also the perfect trend to work some DIY magic on and update/revitalise an old favourite in your wardrobe, just pick up a pack of badges from your local haberdashery or head to ASOS / New Look for a cute multi pack - and remember the sparklier, the better. I chose to embrace badges with a soft khaki utility shirt, simple but stylish, teamed with jeans and wedges.

I have rounded up my favourite street style images (all from my Fashion Week ♡ board) and my top picks for embracing the badge trend, all highstreet except one cheeky little designer piece. Especially loving the boyfriend jeans - although be warned they do have a giant sparkly jackpot writtenacross the bum but it would be easy to remove. The one note i will add is these are all statement pieces so keep the rest of your outfit simple.

Street style - Badges

Fast Food T-shirt - £6 Primark
Badged Lucas Boyfriend Jeans - £55 Topshop
Khaki Badge Patchwork Double Pocket Military Shirt - £24.99 New Look
All Over Stickers Cross-Body Bag - £795 Anya Hindmarch
Limited Edition Lets Party Badge Pack - £10 ASOS
T-Shirt in Oversize Fit with Badge Print - £14 ASOS

Spring Lookbook

Welcome to my spring lookbook - teaming a couple of gorgeous new items (including the laced wedges, bardot dress and floral bomber jacket) with some old wardrobe faithfuls to create easy, go to looks. I would say i have a fairly classic style, i like to keep my clothing simple but i do love a statement print or accessory and a fabulous pair of shoes, to add some personality to my outfits. All of the featured looks embrace garments that i know suit my body shape and style, making me feel confident and summeryCombining a mix of transitional and more summer styles as i have to be prepared for anything, the UK weather is so unpredictable - bright sunshine or torrential downpours (sometimes within the same day).

Looks i'm Loving - Spring Lookbook

Spring Lookbook

Welcome to my spring lookbook - teaming a couple of gorgeous new items (including the laced wedges, bardot dress and floral bomber jacket) with some old wardrobe faithfuls to create easy, go to looks. I would say i have a fairly classic style, i like to keep my clothing simple but i do love a statement print or accessory and a fabulous pair of shoes, to add some personality to my outfits. All of the featured looks embrace garments that i know suit my body shape and style, making me feel confident and summeryCombining a mix of transitional and more summer styles as i have to be prepared for anything, the UK weather is so unpredictable - bright sunshine or torrential downpours (sometimes within the same day).
