I have a very rare weekend off (hurrah!) and it’s a Bank Holiday! Woop! I’m quite a casual girl on a day to day basis, I’m all for something easy to throw on! Today’s outfit is no different!

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

January Favourites

20140203-133522.jpg

So I haven’t done a monthly favourites since October, mainly because I feel I haven’t used some things enough to call them a ‘favourite’! But also because I always seem to buy things mid-month and then I’m not sure if I can call them a monthly favourite! But hey it’s my blog, and can write about what I like!

So this month has been about some new additions and others that have been lurking for a couple of months already.

Topshop Sweater I rarely shop in Topshop, but this totally stole my heart when I saw it. The lovely soft cashmere-esque fabric, to the gorgeous embellishment around the collar. A perfect addition to my slightly boring winter wardrobe, that’s perfect for Sunday lunch out with the fam!
Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart This made its way into my basket during my Boots Haul a couple of weeks ago and I didn’t think I’d get much wear out of it until the summer, but since I had my hair majorly lightened this has been the perfect pink for me to wear to work. Bright but not too, and beautiful texture (as we all know!).
MacBook Pro purple hard case I got this just after I got my new MacBook, but because I was sooo busy in the run up to Christmas, I didn’t christen it as much as I should. This plastic hard case is great for me as a) I don’t like the outside of my laptop looking grubby and b) I was scared to use it when I first got it for fear of scratching! This does make the MacBook heavier, so not great if you carry your around, but mine lives at home so it’s perfect!
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation I promise I will stop bleating on about his soon, but I have literally used it every day in January. I’ll save you to repeated gushing, here’s the link to my review: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation review
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Lightscapade A beautiful slightly yellow toned highlighter that I’ve been using instead of my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick this month. It’s been the perfect alternative, just enough highlight and not glittery.
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara The first Benefit product I have every purchased! I totally gave in to blogger hype with this one and I haven’t been disappointed! The only thing that’s a little annoying is how hard it is to remove! Even my most trusty bi-phase removers don’t budge this very easily and I don’t like to scrub at my eyes too much. But, it does wonders for how your lashes look! I really like the slightly domed end of the brush to get right in to those inner and outer corners, a real winner!

Post links to your favourites posts, I love to see what other pele are loving, my Wishlist just grows every time I read them!
