craving: boyfriend wishlist

22 February 2013

Every now and again whilst browing the online stores - as we do! - I come across something I quite like for Shaun and it sends me off on a guys shopping rampage. This is one of those moments so I thought that i'd record my findings this time and then share them with you guys - and girls :)

1. river island colour block jumper | 2. river island black shirt | 3 & 4. diesel watches | 5. zara neon wallet
6. all saints beanie | 7. jack wills ski goggles | 8. paul smith shoes | 9, 10 & 11. jack & jones girl tees

you're all heart. yo

14 February 2013

It's the V Day and whether you're into it as a 'holiday' or not, I think that it's a good excuse to hunt down some heart shaped and patterned pretties. Shaun and I are likely heading out for a meal now to which i'm probably wearing my new red dress from missguided and some pretty heart shaped jewellery. So cliche it's sickening haha.

1. gogo philip 'a' heart necklace | 2. swarovski heart pendant | 3. aldo nude heart studded clutch
4. in love with fashion coral jumper | 5. pieces mix metal heart studs | 6. estella bartlett bracelet
7. red heart studs | 8. boohoo heart print skater dress | 9. wildfox vest | 10. heart print pom pom hat
11. club l heart print cardigan | 12. wildfox heart of the city jumper | 13. goldie heart print playsuit
14. knotted heart rings | 15. warehouse heart stud belt | 16. asos heart elbow patch jumper

I quite fancy a lot of these items for my wardrobe even though some are a bit more cutesy than I normally go for.

Happy Valentines Day y'all x

It's no secret that I am a spice fiend, I put chillies in everything. I'd even put them in macaroni cheese if Shaun would let me.. So when I found out about Trees Can't Dance I was more than happy to give their products a go. Excited? Let's Spice up your life ;) (That was just too cheesy not to say..)

my must haves: essie protein base coat

9 February 2013

A gross fact about me.. I was once a compulsive nail biter, yep - yuck - I hear you. That along with a year or so of acrylics left my nails in quite a fragile state so in a desperate need to sort out my screwed up nails I have tried all sorts of 'strengthening' products. You know the type; those promising full and 'hard as' nails. Unfortunately they have never left me with such a thing, instead my nails have still torn or snapped and it's not like i'm a brick layer and should expect this to happen.

I'm trying a different tactic by using this essie protein base coat. This is a fortifying polish that promotes strength, brightness and elasticity in your nails and although I haven't noticed that they are any brighter, they have completely stopped snapping and tearing. For me this is more of a long term improvement rather than a short term solution and it has worked wonders for me so far.

When i'm all done with this one I fancy trying the essie ridge smoothing base coat :)

craving: a soft biker

6 February 2013

Sequins, suede, tweed and leather mix, I want and love them all. My recent acquiring of a gold sequin biker from Lashes of London (worn here) has only furthered my lust for these relaxed and easy to wear jackets. I think that there is a soft biker for every type of occasion at any time of the year, there is for my style anyway :)

my must haves: mac innocence beware lipstick

2 February 2013

If there was ever a lipstick to replace the infamous GOSH Darling, it's this one. Mac's Innocence Beware ♥ Though this lippie smells so much better and ha s10 times more staying power.

Innocence Beware was first introduced as part of the Venomous Villains collection which is perfect for a huge disney fan like myself. It then made another appearance in a new collection where I snapped up a replacement. For my lips this is the perfect soft nude, I love it. This photo was taken some time ago and i'm now running low on my back up! Fingers crossed it will appear again soon :)
