STYLE | TODAY I WISH I WORE...

TIWIW


Influenced by a dress I saw on Net-a-Porter, this is the outfit i'm wishing I have hanging up in my wardrobe right now!
The print on the dress is influenced by the bird trend and the overall look also incorporates the neon trend too, which I'm loving too much at the moment.

Dress - Altuzarra
Clutch - Jimmy Choo
Shoes - Chloe

EVENT | DOLPHIN SUMMER FASHION SHOW

I went along to the Dolphin Summer 2012 Fashion Show this weekend and had such a fun time.
They showcased the best in summer styles and outfits from brands including Marks and Spencers, Primark and New Look.
People were given the opportunity to get a make over with Body Shop and a new hair style with Toni & Guy, the official London Fashion Week sponsors.

I didn't expect to leave with anything but at the end we were all given Toni & Guy / Label M goody bags and bits of information which was very nice of them.
I had such a great time looking at all the different styles and I must say New Look were my favourite for women's wear and Primark for men's wear. I wish I took more images!

OOTD | WILD CHILD


Vest - Primark
Jeans - TK Maxx

Today was my no foundation day. I do this often to allow my skin to breath and feel free! I just wore a light coat f my 'They're Real' mascara from Benefit and neatened up my brows with my Loreal Eyebrow pencil and that was it for the day.
These pics were taken just before a very random water balloon fight (Which was very hilarious).
I think sometimes its important to be free and just be a kid again which is what the aim of today was!

Hope you are all enjoying the weather too folks!

STYLE | ORANGE

orange heels

I am so in love with orange at the moment.
I seem to be working it into my wardrobe a lot more frequently so I'm thinking to be a lot more daring and purchase some lovely orange heels to wear this summer.
I've been seeing so many inspirational designs that I love like the Alain Quilici Bess Sandals, so I thought I'd share. I just can't decide which ones to get, I need one that is a reasonable price but still unique, any recommendations?


Outfit 1:
Play-suit - Primark
Demin Jacket - Vintage
Sandals - New Look

Outfit 2:
Play-suit - Primark
Ring - Romwe
Bracelet - George
Bag - New Look

Anyways, how amazing has the weather been this week? Last week was amazingly hot. I went to the beach in Bournemouth loads and to several bars and my favourite, La Tasca, it just never gets old. It was great fun as always, but now i'm back home in London in the big city for some family fun.
I have so much exciting stuff planned to show you guys over the next few weeks. This is the summer I was waiting for & I just can't wait!

STYLE | ASOS HAUL


Yesterday I received my lovely ASOS unitard that I ordered a few days ago! Once I saw it I just needed it and had to buy it (Bad Tolu). I think it's amazing, the colours are lovely and intense and the print is very edgy. It's £30 which is also a reasonable price too. I love that I can dress it up and also wear it casual! What do you guys think? I can't wait to wear this out soon!

BEAUTY | ORIGINS BB SPF 15 TINTED MOISTURISER

origins


I am very impressed with the new Origins tinted moisturiser range. 
What caught my eye was the impressive 6 shades that it comes in! For a tinted moisturiser that you can get over the counter from your local drugstore, I am very impressed! Origins in general are a very good brand when it comes to natural products for sensitive skins so I can't wait to get my hands on one. 
The moisturiser has SPF 15 perfect for skin protection this summer, antioxidants and minimises pores, so its perfect to use early in the morning after just washing your face to close those pores back up. 

The consistency of the cream is very light so it will add a natural radiance to skin but also has the coverage to conceal any bits you want to hide away. And to top it all off, just in case you didn't know, white tea is packed with protective nutrients and scientists studies prove it as a healthy skin aid!
This is definitely on my wish list.

STYLE | SAY IT WITH A T!

Say It With a T

Topshop have gone tee-shirt crazy preparing us for those blazing summer days. They've stuck to the  pastel and crop-top trends to help us brighten up our closets.
Never thought I'd say it but I think i'll be back to the girly casual tee's this summer, I absolutely love 'em at the moment. (And you all know I love my crop tops, my love for them goes un-said lol).

Topshop shows us how to work a crop top into your everyday look:

STYLE CRUSH | KIM KARDASHIAN

Kim Kardashian is so stylish and she is officially my girl style crush. Her fashion sense is off the hook, I would love to get lost in her closet for a day or two. She was recently spotted in London without her signature long locks and featured on the Alan Carr show which I'm sure would have been fun to watch. Ah, I love Kim!

Here are two styling suggestions for inspiration:

BEAUTY | N.Y.C & MUA


Some new beauty bits I bought the other day:

N.Y.C - Lip Stain in 493 Champagne Stain

This was my first ever lip stain product bought and I am absolutely obsessed with it. It dries instantly and lasted all evening. I'm looking to find a light pink and maybe another bolder colour

N.Y.C Nail Polish in 253 Mint Macaroon

Finally found an affordable mint green colour lovely for the season

MUA Eye Liner in Snow White

Going to experiment and jump on to the the white eyeliner band wagon. Use white eyeliner on your lower lash line after applying your make up to achieve a wider and brighter looking eye

UPDATE | THE BEGINNING...


Last week was such an amazing week - I handed in my dissertation (above) on Monday and had my final exam on Thursday!
It's been such a lovely experience, but now it's time to brace myself for the beginning of my future.. Eek!
It's back onto job hunting again but I really can't wait to begin progressing and creating my career!

So... what did I do to celebrate finishing university on Thursday? Well I was invited to a marketing social but I was just so exhausted after running around and doing loads of errands, so I couldn't make it lol! (I hope you guys had a lovely time & I'm so sorry for missing it!)

I do intend to celebrate again soon back home properly with my family and friends. 
Any ideas of cool places to go for a celebration in London?

A big good luck to all those still taking their exams. It'll be over soon! :)
