Friday Favourites

Friday AND Payday.  The best day of the month if you ask me.  Here's what I've been loving this past fortnight..

Poached Eggs

I think I mentioned scrambled eggs a few Fridays ago but now I've moved onto poached eggs.  To be honest, any variety of an egg is good with me but I'll be honest, I'd never cooked poached eggs before!  So I gave it a little go the other week and now I'm hooked. It's my go-to post workout meal at the moment.

Galaxy's Salted Caramel

I discovered this in Tesco shortly after Easter and felt a little guilty purchasing it after devouring so many chocolate eggs but I just couldn't resist!  Salted caramel is my favourite and I wasn't really expecting it to taste much different to the regular caramel one they have but oh my it's a lot richer, I couldn't even finish the whole bar (and yes normally I can ;)).

Shay Mitchell

I mentioned in a previous post that I'd been loving Pretty Little Liars but I wasn't too fussed about the girls and their style, it was more the storyline that had me hooked. Then I stumbled across Shay Mitchell on instagram and she's officially my new girl crush.  The style, the hair, the sunglasses collection.  She's got it all.

Following on from Shay Mitchell is this brand of sunglasses that she has a collection with. At first I didn't bother to look them up as I thought they'd be another over priced brand that I couldn't justify but then I gave in and was surprised to see that most of their range is around $50 (Australian dollars) which is about £25 but they look so much more!  I definitely think I'll be purchasing a pair for summer.  I kinda want some clear ones.

Gone Girl

I know I'm waaaay too late to the party here but I just started reading the book as I really want to see the film but won't until I've read the book first!  I'm about a third of the way in and it's just starting to get good.  I kinda of found that it dragged a bit in the beginning?  Apparently the film isn't as good as the book which is generally the case but I'm excited to see it anyway.

Made in Chelsea

It's back!  Which timed in quite nicely with Taking New York finishing.  I'm not sure what I make of it yet as I've only seen one episode.  There's a lot of new faces.  I'm not too keen in Spencer's girlfriend, she's not a girl's girl at all.  I must admit I follow her on Insta though bcos her body is amazeballs!  I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the series shapes up.

The V&A

I visited the Victoria and Albert Museum the other week (post here) for the first time and can't believe I've never been here before.  It's such a beautiful museum.  I saw the Alexander McQueen exhibition which you can check out more in my other post.  I love the huge shop they have which just has everything in it and not like your usual boring museum shop full of postcards and the like.  But what I liked most was the grounds outside.  It's so pretty and I'm so jealous of my friend who works there and gets to spend her lunchbreaks sitting outside.  You should definitely check this museum out if you're looking for something to do in London.

Drinking More Water

I've always been guilty of not drinking enough water but to be honest I think most of us are?  I used to always take a little bottle with me to work but recently I've been taking a larger bottle and now drinking twice as much as I was.  I was starting to get headaches and I think it was the lack of water. It's so important for our bodies to keep hydrated, especially with the warmer weather coming.  Okay, lecture over.


No, not the musical although I do love that too.  I've got my mum's cats staying with me at the moment and they are so cute.  They crave attention but sometimes it's nice bcos they want to cuddle up with you and be petted.  They've been sleeping on the end of my bed.  Okay, now I sound like the crazy cat woman haha.  I do love them though but bunnies are less hassle!

Have a good 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
