Feeling pretty WHIMSICAL (I love TOPSHOP lipstick)

I thought as it’s getting all sunny and lovely that I’d purchase a new summery lipstick. I absolutely love Topshop matte lipstick. I’ve had a bright pink colour for ages and it is my favourite lipstick ever. So I thought I’d try Whimsical, which is a coral-y peachy kind of colour.

I was a bit worried that it would come out really orange on my lips but it was quite subtle and as I’ve been doing a little cheeky fake tanning lately, it looked great with a bit of a bronze glow! I went out for drinks with my friends and was drinking wine all night (it was Friday!) and it stayed on really well. I only reapplied once, but it wasn’t really needed, I think I was just overexcited about the new lipstick! hehe.

It’s such a nice summer coral colour and looks really cool with the matte effect on your lips. I also really like the Topshop tubes – I think they’re a really cute design.

So I’m definitely feeling WHIMSICAL!

Peace love and summer vibes x

SPRING

The prettiest season is here and blossoming beautifully! 

Spring is one of my favourite seasons because…

As the temperature heats up, people begin to crawl out from their Winter hibernation and hit the hills and the beer gardens.

Spring also means that Summer is on its way, which makes me extremely happy because after a cold Winter, all I want is a big beam of sunlight shining in my face. Bliss.

Spring is the beginning of festival season, when people come together, dance to great music and drink Cider.

Spring lifts everyone’s moods because sunlight is good for us, but it is not too hot that we can’t adjust (…well we can, but us Brits do love a moan!)

THE BEST OF THE FLOWERS ARE AROUND US. Wow. I have seen some beauties over the past couple of days and these were just in friends’ gardens.

So enjoy it and go outside!

Peace and love and Spring x

A perfect Easter Vitamin D-Detox that you will not forget!

After a weekend of a fair amount of chocolate and unhealthy bits and bobs, a detox was much needed! But instead of heading to the gym, I thought I’d take advantage of one of the most beautiful days of the year so far and climb a big old hill to burn off a few of the chocolate calories – and it was a great decision!

11116148_10152944481663264_716743575_n 11139527_10152944481723264_320344250_n

Before starting my day, I had a rainbow fruit salad for my breakfast, as I needed some vitamins and colour in my life, before picking up my friend and heading to Hay-on-Wye. It’s such a gorgeous little town and we had a walk round all the shops and lusted over some amazing looking fudge (but carefully resisted!) … However, we may have given in to ice cream temptation at Shepherds – no regrets! I had peanut butter and chocolate and mint choc chip…. Yes, this is still a detox if you’ve seen the size of Hay Bluff (the hill)!

It was such a gorgeous day to be doing it that I didn’t even think about the exercise… I highly recommend a day out walking up a hill if you are lacking fitness inspiration – the views were absolutely incredible. And I must have burned off a few eggs and the ice cream at least!

Vitamin D from the sun can prevent bone abnormalities, brittle bones and can help increase resistance again some diseases. The sunshine is also a mood enhancer, which will lift you out of your easter chocolate coma!

Bank Holiday Weekend Style

Last night I went out for a much needed night with the girls. And it was so great catching up with them and having a dance! That afternoon, my friend Em and I went for a cheeky trip to New Look to have a browse for some outfit inspiration and I picked up this white top and these heels, planning to wear them with a pair of high waisted jeans for a casual look. When I got home, I was having a little play around with my outfit and I decided to see what it’d look like with my ankle grazing monochrome trousers from Topshop and it randomly just really worked! I don’t often blog about my own outfits, but I loved this look last night. The white top was so flattering – I love the thin straps! And a bargain at £9.99!

I’m also a huge fan of that style of shoe, especially with the shape of my feet – I have very tiny heels so my feet often slip out of shoes, but these were super secure!

Wanderlusting daydreaming

Wanderlust: ” a strong desire or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world”

All I can think about at the moment is traveling. Procrastination from the dissertation takes me to lusting over exploring new places…

However, this post is actually about a jewellery brand combining my wanderlusting with one of my other favourite things… Shopping for pretty things. Wanderlust jewellery is a bohemian jewellery brand inspired by travel. And I’m now obsessed. They have so many gorgeous designs, including beautiful elephant rings rings and “wish in a bottle” necklaces (my personal favourite!)

I follow Wanderlust Jewellery on Instagram and the gorgeous pieces of jewellery always catch my eye! I would recommend lovers of jewellery and serial wanderluster’s to check them out!

Peace love and Wanderlust

Be a… Lifechanger

Can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post! I will not make excuses about final year, I will just provide a little post of a fashion brand that I’m appreciating/loving right now!

I recently came across Made by Riley – a fashion brand that has a mission to give to charities whilst making really cool clothes. I follow Riley on Instagram and I have been lusting slightly over the LifeChanger sweater, so I might have to invest. However, the guilty clothing purchase will be overshadowed by good-doing as 20% goes to charity.

I really appreciate the idea behind the brand and as a young entrepreneur trying to give back, I think people should show support. (Also, the clothes are cool!) 

Check it out!

Peace and love and giving back x
