Wear | Life | Eats


This week I've really been getting back into my Dot perfume by Marc Jacobs.  I've been a fan of Marc Jacobs' scents for about 5 years now after falling in love with the Daisy one someone gifted me for my 21st birthday.  I got the Dot one for Christmas after smelling the one that my flat mate got the Christmas before. I'm a bit rubbish with buying perfumes and always end up with a long list for people to buy me for birthdays or Christmas.  That said I do have a ridiciously large perfume collection which I'll attach a photo of below! Dot is a real juicy floral scent and perfect for spring/summer.


I think I've mentioned on here before that I like to treat myself fortnightly to a gel nail manicure.  I never have time to paint my nails and so they end up chipped or missing and just a complete mess basically so if I book them in to be done I know I will actually go and they will stay looking nice.  Now that the weather is starting to warm up I want to be able to get rid of the tights and replace them with sandals and open toed shoes so I thought I would start to get a gel pedicure too.  So this Saturday as well as my usual manicure I went for a pedicure in the same matching colour.  I think paint on your toes generally lasts longer so I'm hoping I will only have to have them done once a month but I will let you know how I get on.  I went for a blue glittery which I think is rather jazzy and cheery!


This weekend it was one of my friend's birthdays so she arranged for about 20 of us to go for a meal.  She originally wanted another restaurant but they were fully booked so she booked a mexican restaurant instead and it was actually really nice.  I'm not the biggest fan of spicy food and being so fussy I was a little worried about what I would be able to eat.  I went for vegetable burritos which came with rice and nachos.  It was a pretty big portion, especially for me, and I didn't manage to finish it but it was lovely all the same. The burrito was topped with melted cheese, my fave!  Another good thing about mexican restaurants is the cocktail menu, obvs ;)

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
