Firstly, I apologise for not having a post up the last 10 days! I've been working on a little something which will all be revealed very soon! I promise you it's super exciting and something I have wanted to do for SO long!
I do also have a holiday coming up so am looking forward to getting lots of lovely holiday posts ready for the next few weeks ahead. I'm so looking forward to getting some sun and enjoy the long evenings with a cocktail in hand!
I always get to April and find i'm so desperate for some sun. We usually go away in May but this year we are jetting off a month early and I'm so pleased it has come round so quickly. I love looking forward to the holiday too.. I'm never one for a last minute booking because all the planning and excitement that goes in to it is half the fun!
So... here is a little holiday inspiration to get us all through until our much needed break. Bring on sandy the sandy beaches!
If that isn't enough to get you in the holiday mood I don't know what is. Pinterest is always letting my imagination run wild!
My holiday is finally near and I am literally counting down the days until it's time to fly! My hubby and I are off to Crete with a couple of friends. The temp should be about 25 so not unbearable hot but definitely a nice change to be lying on the beach sunbathing rather than being in the office here in England!
So here are a list of all the things I've either already bought or am desperate to for my little get away!
Isn't this shirt just the cutest? I'm still completely obsessed with everything embroidered although I'm aware that the craze is starting to fade. Not for me though!
For spring time I'm finding shirts are perfect for the in between season. By midday it is way to warm for a jumper but wearing a tee is just a little too chilly. So... it seems I'm been living in shirts!
This light weight mac is also perfect for this weather. It's really light so not doing much for warmth but is just an extra layer where a coat is no longer needed. Wahoo!
I'm wearing my trusty Topshop jeans and ****** shoes. It's so lovely to be out taking photos in the sunshine again. It makes such a difference. Oh also, i'm in my new sunglasses! See all the links below.
I'm a true fan of a lovely lippy. It can completely change your look from day to night and add a much needed pop of colour to any neutral outfit!
I am going to go through 5 different lipstick moments... this post is actually part of a competition to become a Bourjois ambassador and to also win a trip to Paris! So please, if you like what you see then I'd love it if you could vote for me HERE ! Thank you!
1. Shopping day / CORAL
For a day out shopping I think something girly and fun is ideal. I really love coral shades and they are so perfect for spring. It's really lovely if you can pick up on a colour in your clothing too which I think I manage to do here! I'm wearing shade 06 which I think looks so young and fresh! I love how bright it is!
2. Date night / DARK RED
This is the time for something far more striking! this deep red colour is perfect for date night, and I think it has just the slightest hint of pink which softens it a little.. Something romantic and bold that you couldn't get away with everyday. I'm wearing the shade 08 which I absolutely love.
3. A day at the office / NUDE
For a day at the office I find something neutral is best. Not too loud and crazy, just a colour that finishes of your look with out being to noticeable. Nudes are perfect for this! I'm wearing the shade 03 which is one that I always keep in my handbag!
4. Girls night out / RASPBERRY
For a night out with the girls the colour that springs to my mind is pink. This dark but soft raspberry colour is just perfect. I think darker shades are great for a night out but with a hint of pink it's not too sever keeping it fun and flirty. I'm wearing the shade 07.
5. Weekend breakfast / PINK
I think this colour is a toned day version of the one I wore for the shopping day. With hints of coral (which I love) it's just a slightly softer shade. Perfect for a morning out and about, and easy to top up after dining! I'm wearing shade 01.
I hope you have enjoyed my 5 lipstick moments!
Please vote for me if you would like me to be the next Bourjois ambassador! Thank you!
This is the first day in a very long time, that I've gone to shoot some photos and the sun is shining! It's so lovely, I'm happy to see the sun!
Today I am wearing an outfit inspired by my recent trip to Copenhagen. I noticed out there the girls don't live in skinny jeans (like I do) so I pulled this new pair out!
Have you noticed my shoes yet? I think they're so cute! They were so reasonable (under £25 I think) but I really think they look like the Russel & Bromley bow plimsolls! At a fraction of the price these seemed like a win win!
A suitable outfit for this glorious spring day! Long may it last... even if our summer was like this i'd be pretty happy. Its beaut!
