Friday Favourites

Happy Friday!  Here's what I've been loving these last few weeks...

Change in weather - it's finally starting to get a few degrees warmer here in the UK which means it's more bearable to go out rather than hibernating every weekend.  I really can't wait for Spring and Summer!

Celebrities' short hair - I've noticed lately that everyone seems to be chopping their hair off.  Whether it's celebrities or friend I've seen on FaceBook and now it's making me want to do the same.  Short hair is so lovely for the summer and can be styled in many ways.

Weight classes - I want to get more toned and have been really inspired by the Aussie girls on Instagram.  I always avoided weight classes before because I thought they'd make me bulky but if i can look anywhere near like them then i'm up for giving it a go.  I will do a more detailed blog post on this soon.

Beauty blender - I've really gotten into using my beauty blender for foundation lately.  i always used to use a brush and only use the sponge for concealer but it gives a really beautiful airbrushed look and doesn't cake on the product so much.  A lot nicer for daytime looks.

Spinach and eggs - Along with my new fitness regime I wanted to incorporate more protein into my diet as this is especially good after a work out.  i really love eggs so I thought I would make 2 scrambled eggs with chopped up spinach mixed in and I have that 3 times per week after my harder workouts.

Messy ponytails - I saw a girl with a really cute messy ponytail look so I've been trying that out lately and it looks really cute.  It's so quick to do and looks effortless.  I think it will be great for Spring and Summer for those of us not wanting to cut our hair off!

Flat shoes - I'm an actually lover of high heels.  Even though I am nearly 5ft8 I still wear ridiculously high heels pretty much everyday but just recently I've gotten into wearing more flats.  I've bought a couple of pairs of brogues and some really cute cat shoes.

Fashion Weeks - The past few weeks have been fashion weeks around the fashion capitals and I've been trying to keep up to date with all of them, mainly on Pinterest.  I attended London Fashion Week which I blogged about here.

Lighter evenings - Along with the warmer weather we have been getting lighter evenings. The sun is still setting about 6pm but it's better than 4pm and at the end of the month we will see the clocks go forward and will officially enjoy more sunshine, i can;t wait!

Olivia Palermo - just everything about this woman.  I've been Pinteresting her a lot lately especially around Fashion Week because she just nails it every time.  She pulls off looks better than anyone else and I like her petite frame because I feel I can copy some of her looks.  I normally try to find inspiration in people with similar figures to myself.

Have a great 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
