Friday Favourites

This has been one hell of a week and I cannot wait to let off some steam this weekend! But aside from things I haven't been loving this week, here are a few of the things I do love:

Fake tan

As you'll see in my last post (here) I have jumped on that fake tan bandwagon now that the summer is showing it's friendly face.  Check out the post to see my top faves!


I love a bit of sunshine any time of the year but living in London we only really get it for about 3 months so I am dead excited for summer and my upcoming trip to Florida!

Face Oil

My skin was super dry over the winter months so to replenish it I was using a lot of facial oil products.  I have a cleanser from the Body Shop I use to remove my make-up and an all over oil to put on after exfoliating and it's worked wonders.

Taking New York

Sorry but this is the new Made in Chelsea for me.  I'm obsessed and can't get enough.  I really hope they make another series but if you didn't see the first one you can watch it on catch up E4.

Nude Lips

With my new tanned skin I'm hoping to get away with more nude lipsticks.  When I wear them in the winter they just seem to match my foundation and look like I have no lips!  I recently bought the lip lacquer from Rimmel in the shade nude eclipse and I love it.

Time of Our Lives by Pitbull

This song is my jam the last few weeks.  It really gets me in a summery mood and ready to party!


Okay so I baked one thing; a loaf of banana bread last weekend but I was so surprised how well it turned out that I might actually give baking a go more often!

Happy Friday everyone!

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
