I very often get occasions when I have a quick turnaround after getting home from work.  Friday was one of these occasions.  I need an outfit that was easy to plan, easy to dress and looked good.

Enter Missguided!

I’m a huge fan of Missguided, and regularly peruse their site if I’ve got a night out on the horizon and want to update my wardrobe – such amazing choice for great prices!  This jumpsuit was actually purchased last summer, but I’ve worn it a lot as it fits for both winter and summer nights, giving a classic tailored look. I switch up the shoes and accessories I wear with this so I don’t feel like I’m wearing the same outfit every time.

Jumpsuit – Missguided £27.99
Necklace – Primark £4
Belt – Asos £13.99 (similar)
Shoes – Primark £15
Bag – Michael Kors £109 (similar)

Hope you’re all having a lovely Mother’s Day!

Spring Haul | Featuring Primark and H&M

Yes it’s time for yet another haul! What is wrong with me! Well, on this occasion I was spending vouchers that I’ve had since Christmas, so I think that’s allowed!

I’m pleased with everything I picked up, and hopefully these items will serve me well during SS14.

T shirts White tees are both from H&M, the others are distressed and boyfriend tee’s from Primark. Soft slouchy material is the way forward for me! Matched with a statement necklace makes all the difference.

Pink A line skirt // White blouse A cute outfit I thought. The skirt could also be worn with a crop top, but on me definitely needs heels as the fabric is quite voluptuous so would need heels to balance out any of us with shapely behinds!

Black Maxi Dress // Light Wash Skinnys // Silk Harem Pants The maxi is a simple capped sleeve column dress, really soft material, I will wear this when I’ve been spray tanned as it won’t rub any bits of it off. Light wash skinny jeans are to replace my trusty dark denim and black ones that I’ve lived in all winter! These pants aren’t actual silk but that’s the closest I can say to describe them. Great option for cooler summer nights with a simple black top and flip flops.

Statement necklaces x3 // Embellished head band The top item is the headband, bottom three are necklaces. The silver one is a replacement of one I broke a couple of weeks ago – massive fail – but the others I just thought will be really versatile during the upcoming months.

Hope that hasn’t gone on for two long, I sometimes feel hauls are better as a video, what do you guys think? Have you got any of these items too? I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback below! xx

The Kors Kollection

Apparently I love Michael Kors! I made my first purchase last summer just after my birthday. I had fallen in love with the Large Selma over a crowded handbag department and knew it must be mine! Since then I’ve added a few other items to the family: matching laptop sleeve (obviously!), small summer clutch bag, Runway watch (thanks Santa!) and sunglasses courtesy of duty free!

In my defence, I wasn’t specifically looking for Kors sunglasses or a Kors clutch, they just happened to be the items that grabbed me more than the competition. Now my wishlist is growing and I’d love a couple of other bags to add to my collection. Sorry not sorry…!

Comment ‘snap’ and tell me which items you have!

Happy hump day! :o)

The (Makeup) Bag Lady

20140202-181504.jpg

For some reason, Christmases and birthdays in my house always seem to end up with some sort of theme for the gift receivers.  This year, my theme seemed to be makeup bags.  I have gone from a small collection of gift with purchase bags, to quite a nice collection (IMO) of makeup bags for just about any occasion!  Now maybe this isn’t such a coincidence as I did purchase 2 for myself, then wasn’t allowed to use one until Christmas day, and I had forgotten that I had asked family for a couple of other types of makeup bags which I also got for Christmas.

I’m not exactly a very regular traveller, but I do often need a selection of makeup during the day or to be able to do my makeup on the way to work. Don’t worry, I take the train! No penalties for applying eyeliner in my rear view mirror, thank you very much!! Added to this, everytime I go away for a night/weekend/holiday I never seem to have enough space or the right type of bag to fit what I need. So now I seem to have a collection for all eventualities, I thought I’d give you a tour of my makeup bags!

Bobbi Brown Organiser Generally for holiday use, I did a packing challenge here if you want to see how I organise my Organiser! // Bobbi Brown Makeup Bag Another great one for every day, quite flimsy but can fit quite a bit in it. Is also great to just store lip products and a powder to top up with during the day. // Anya Hindmarch makeup bag The one I treated myself to at Christmas. Love the brush section separate to your makeup. Also, a deceptively large amount of space! // ‘N’ Alphabet Bag Another Christmas gift, from my Auntie who I think sneakily saw a wishlist/tweet from me saying how much I wanted this! Perfect for day to day use. // Marks & Spencer spotty makeup bag Another gift from my Auntie. Again she knew I wanted a separate bag for my brushes when travelling and this is the perfect size! Love to neural colours too! // Cath Kidston small makeup bag This has been well used since I’ve had it a few years. I have a full collection of Cath Kidston travel and wash bags in this design, but this is another I can reach for for daily essentials.

Do you have a small army of makeup bags too? Tweet or Instagram me and show me! You know how nosey I like to be! 😀
