My fave VMA looks...

Hi guys, 
So its late on Sunday now and everyone has probably seen pictures from the VMAs in New York last night but i though id go ahead and show you what some of my fave looks were:

Selena Gomez was my top best dressed and not just because I love her style! I think she looked amazing in this Versace dress with bralet details on one side. The navy colour is perfect and really suited her brunette hair and minimalist make-up.

I always think Taylor swift looks great at award shows and this time was no different, she looked so glamorous in her Herve Leger navy dress with amazing bead details on the plunge neckline! I especially loved her old Hollywood style make up and I though her red lipstick complimented the navy beautifully!

Ellie Goulding was another of my favourites from last night, her look was more edgy with studs covering her dress which I had to look up as I hadn't heard of the designer for before, Furne One Amato. A couture designer from the UAE that has made dresses worn by Katy Perry, J-Lo and Nicki Minaj! 

These were my top 3 fave looks but here's a look at a few more if you haven't had a chance to have a look at yet:

Hope you enjoyed reading!

I am loving #1

Hi guys, 

I have decided to start doing a weekly series on my blog where I get to show you things I have have spotted while out shopping and online that I am loving! 

Here is this weeks:

1. This Missguided pink and black floral jumpsuit is one of my favourite thing's I have seen in a while! I have recently started loving jumpsuits and am now looking for new ones that I can get my hands on. This is the perfect shape and I think can be worn casually and dressed up with shoes and a chunky chain! Missgudied £24.99

2. This shape shoe from Zara has been my favourite since last AW when they brought out an amazing leopard print version, I saw so many people rocking them but never managed to get myself a pair as they were always sold out in the shop and online! My only problem this time is deciding which I love more... the plain or the multi coloured snake ones (someone help me please!!). Zara £59.99

3. Last week I went shopping for some new jeans, I usually go straight to Topshop but this time thought I'd try on a few pairs in other shops. As usual I got distracted and saw this amazing pair of Leather trousers in H&M, I can imagine them looking amazing with the Zara shoes and a plain t-shirt... perfect! H&M £149.99

4. This Topshop playsuit has such a lovely print on it, I have been looking at it online on their homepage for a little while now and saw it has finally come into stock today which means I am definitely going to buy it so look out for a post on how I style it soon! Topshop £50.00

5. Models Own nail polishes have slowly become my new favourites and my collection is growing, I have almost ten colours now (I cant help but by more every time i go into Boots!!) This colour is going to be my next, its called 'raspberry crush' and is the nicest pinky red colour I have seen this season, it is  soooo similar to a YSL one i used to have but smashed woopsy and only a fraction of the price at £5.00!

Let m e know if you enjoyed this kind of post and if you think I should continue with this weekly series!

Thanks for reading, 


Liebster Award

Hi guys!

I was so excited when I saw that Georgie from Fairy Gob Mother nominated me for the Liebster Award! It's a great opportunity for up and coming bloggers to discover more about each other by becoming part of a growing chain of fellow bloggers who've nominated each other to take part!

The rules are as follows:
  1.  Link back to the super sweet person who nominated you for the award - thank you so much Georgie 
  2. Answer the 10 questions provided by your nominator (nominator? I think that's a word?)
  3. Do your part to keep the chain growing by nominating 10 of your fave bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and let them know you've done so!
  4. Create 10 brilliant questions for your own nominees to answer!
Here are my answers to Georgie's 10 questions: 

1. What is your dream job?
I feel like so many people I know recently have said this but I am so undecided on what my 'dream job' is!  I always did best at school/college in art & design subjects so I knew I had to do one of these. I applied to university to study fashion design and got a place at machester met but I am going into my third year in Sept and as much as I have loved doing so many things on my course I don't think it's for me, hopefully after I graduate I can try out a few different things and it will make me decide what it is I actually want to do! 

 2. What's your all time favourite beauty product?
Sleek contour kit! It's my new fave product, I only recently bought it after seeing everyone raving about on their blogs and youtube. It's the perfect trio of a bronzer, blush and highlight. I hope all of their products are as great as this one it!

 3. What's your favourite high-street brand (currently)?
This is easy... ZARA!  I love everything they do & I am constantly checking their website for their new in! 

4. If money was no object, what handbag would you buy?
Celine Phantom Luggage Tote in black croc, I love this bag so much and have seen it reblogged on tumblr and instagram so many times and I LOVE IT!! One day i'll have one :)

 5. What's your favourite perfume?
I have been wearing Marc Jacobs Daisy for such a long time so I guess that has been a favourite but recently I have started using 'Feerie' by Van Cleef & Arples and am absolutely loving it!

 6. What do you think is your best character trait?
I'm not really sure what to say for this question but I like to think i'm a happy person and quite easy going so i guess thats a good thing! 

 7. What is your best feature?
My eyebrows for sure, people always compliment me on how thick they are and I always get asked if they are real!

 8. Why did you start blogging?
I only started to blog this summer, I have had a blog before this but it didn't last long but this time I have tried to keep up with this one and post regularly! I love reading comments on my posts and it always makes me want to write about things people love reading about! So leave me a comment with some things you might like to see me blog about! 

 9. In your own words, what is your blog about?
I guess when I started this blog I thought it would be where I could read and blog about fashion & beauty products but I think it has slightly changed into a 'lifestyle' blog where I can post about daily things that happen to me, holiday pics and even food :) !
10. What's your favourite colour?
Black and white in clothes,  but in everything else PINK if you hadn't guessed from my layout!

Here are my nominees!
Here are my questions to you:

1) If you could move to another country where would it be and why?
2) If you could go back in time who would you have liked to meet?
3) Who is your celebrity style icon?
4) What are your favourite foods?
5) What's an interesting fact about you?
6) If you could have 1 superpower what would it be and why?
7) If you could be any animal what would you be and why?
8) What is your favourite flavour ice cream? :)
9) If I came to your house for dinner what would you cook for me? 
10) If you were given a million pounds what would you do with it?

Hope you like my questions, I have tried to be original! 

I love this idea of the Liebster Award and hopefully we can all connect to other bloggers and get our blogs read by many too! 

Thanks again to Georgie for nominating me in her 10!

Saturday shopping

Hi Guys, 
Happy weekend! I have just got back from doing some shopping so thought I'd do a quick post showing you what I bought! I didn't go too crazy in the shops but I did manage to buy enough to write about!

Firstly I went into Zara and where I live the shop didn't have as much 'new in' as the website but I did find a few things i couldn't leave without ! 
The first was in the knit section it has a leather look front and a knitted back, i thought it would go perfectly with the infamous zara skort everyone has been rocking lately (which i have in white!) 
The second thing was a t-shirt from their TRF section, i saw it in white online and thought the french writing on it would look so cute with some denim shorts and converse but in the shop they had it in navy blue with pink writing which i loved even more. 
Lastly, i bought the skort which i already have in white in black too.
I just  couldn't leave it, i love wearing my white one and there is nothing that won't go with this!

Next up is H&M where I saw so much new stuff but there was nothing left in my size although I did manage to find this amazing charcoal grey jumpsuit with cut out shoulders and gathered ankles. I have also recently heard about their make up brush collection so i picked up a couple to try out.

Just before I left this morning an ASOS package arrived with a pair of sandals that I forgot I had ordered in it, I'm not sure if i like them yet and may end up sending them back but let me know what you guys think! 

Leave me a comment if you think i should I keep them or not?!

Birthday Deliveries

Hi guys, 
Sorry I haven't blogged for a few days but today's post is worth it!! Yesterday I came home from work to two parcels and because I was only expecting one this was super exciting!

The first was in a brown box, it was my new Michael Kors watch that I bought for myself with money I received for my Birthday, I have been looking at black watches for ages and finally decided on this one. It is the Michael Kors Unisex Bradshaw watch  in black and I love it!

Michael Kors Unisex Bradshaw watch (MK5550)

The next thing was in a cute little Prada bag, wrapped in layers of tissue paper and a dust bag was a gorgeous nude coloured purse with gold hardware! It is amazing and the perfect size even for smaller handbags.

I am so so lucky and greatful to have got these and am so excited to use both of them, check out my instagram for daily arm-candy posts to see how I stack my new watch!

Throwback Jeans

Hi guys, 
Hope the weekend has been nice to everyone! I didn't post at outfit of the day yesterday because I was clearing out my wardrobe and throwing away things that I don't need/wear anymore... but as usual whenever I do this I find hidden things that I forget I own and suddenly become to attached to them that I can't deal with having to give them to a charity shop!

This time I found some old Missgudied jeans from the start of last year?! and I remembered how much I loved them!! They are a look-a-like pair of Isabel Marant jeans from 2011 but there was no way I was throwing these out!

So, now it's Sunday and this is what I wore:

Jumper: Zara
Jeans: Missguided (old)
Shoes: River Island
Bag: Zara

Red & Black

Hi guys, 
A while ago I bought this asymmetric dress off ASOS, as soon as I saw it I wanted to buy it but haven't worn it until now!

I think it is the perfect light floaty dress to wear when with sandals in the warm weather we are having or in the evening with some heels and a clutch, I am now OBSESSED with it and wish they did it in more colours!

Hope you like my outfit:

Dress: ASOS
Shoes: Topshop
Watch: Michael Kors
Ring: Arty ring look-a-like
Bracelet: Mulberry
Necklace: Hand-me down

Nike Blazers

Hi Guys!

So, I'm not really a trainers kind of girl but 2 weeks ago I bought my first pair of Nike blazers, I don't normally wear trainers but I have seen so many people wearing these and looking really cool that I couldn't not have them for myself! I must have been deciding on a colour to buy for a good half an hour and probably tried on about 10 pairs and annoyed all the staff in the shop (woopss!) ...but I finally narrowed it down to 2 and just my luck they had none in my size so I had to order them!

Anyway, the 2 I chose were the black and neon pink high tops and the orange/coral with a rhinestone tick! These are my absolute fave pair I have seen! I've had to wait 2 weeks to collect them and already cannot wait to wear them, look out for my ootd's this week to see how I style them!

Leave me a comment with some ideas of how you think I should wear them!
