Peace and red nails.

August 30, 2012

Top | Primark
Disco pants | Glamorous
Trainers | Vans
Bracelet | Topshop

Evening pretties, this is what I wore today to have a relaxed afternoon with my boyfriend. We slept late, then went out for lunch (including pancakes, mmm), and then went for a drive as the sun was still out.

I've definitely been wearing these disco pants too much since I bought them, but they just fit so nicely and are the comfiest things I own. My nails are all different lengths which drives me mad, but they always break when I've been at work (another reason to hate the place). Anyway, this colour from Topshop is so gorgeous! I haven't worn red nail polish in so long so it's a nice change.

Last night I went to see The Watch and it was really funny. I always love movies with Jonah Hill in them. Then I watched a movie called Absentia when I got home. I thought it would be more horror than it was, but the idea of the movie is scary enough in itself. I'm a major horror/scary movie fan though, do any of you have any recommendations I might not have heard of?

Bag & nail polish | Topshop
Top, flowers & earrings | H&M
Candlestick | Car boot sale
Plant pot, cup & bed sheets | Ikea

Hey dolls! Thought I'd do a little post showing you a few bits I've bought over the past week. As you can see I decided to get two things from my last wish list - the animal print bag and red nail polish. The bag is actually bigger than I expected, which is a good thing as I love these kinds of bags for chucking all my stuff in during a day out.

I thought this candlestick was really pretty and it only cost me £1. Just another excuse for me to buy more candles.

I decided to have a little look in H&M as well. Lately I haven't found a lot of things I love in there, which is better because it of course means I end up spending less (I used to go crazy in their stores haha). But I don't have enough red tops and this lace peplum top is so lovely. I enjoy wearing flowers in my hair and these ones are the cutest! They have a couple of other colours too. 

Onto the few bits I got from Ikea. I'd seen this bed sheet online and have been lusting after a pretty white, floral set for a while so this was perfect for me. I think the cup is adorable and can imagine sipping many glasses of my favourite apple & elderflower juice from it! The plant pot is something I've seen quite a few Youtubers/bloggers have, and I think it will be perfect for storing things in. It also matches the pretty style of my pink magazine file :)

Hope you all like the things I've shown you, enjoy the rest of your day and don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a pretty pair of earrings.

Life lately 002.

August 26, 2012
Saw some adorable farm animals in town and wanted to free them all.

 Enjoyed a yummy cherry bakewell cupcake.

Spent a sunny afternoon in the garden with my sister, eating ice lollies and admiring my bike.

How my favourite bookshelf looks lately - found antler and little rabbit lamp.

My new magazine file beside a beautiful teapot my boyfriend got me for my birthday a couple of years ago, cute teacup from my friend, and many candles.

Bought a ticket to see Beirut in Glasgow - so excited, they are one of the most magical bands ever!

Been enjoying lots of fruit.

Went to Shakeaway after visiting the car boot sale.

Spent lots of time relaxing in bed at my boyfriend's new house.

Have a great Sunday and don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Giveaway | Indie Chic Boutique.

August 23, 2012

Hey everyone! Hope you've all been having a good day. My trip to Ikea yesterday was really good, got a few pretty bits which I'll show soon. I was also excited to discover that at the cafe at the end, they actually do veggie hotdogs (the food used to be my favourite part of Ikea as a child haha). Don't know how I'd never noticed this before!

Anyway, the lovely people at Indie Chic Boutique have offered to giveaway this adorable pair of gold plated bird earrings to one lucky reader. Having been into their store here in Edinburgh, I can tell you all their pieces of clothing and jewellery are completely lovely.

The giveaway will last for two weeks and the winner will be contacted on Friday 7th September.

Good luck you pretty things!

Jacket | New Look
T-shirt & shorts | Topshop
Shoes | Primark

Hey lovelies, this is the outfit I wore yesterday. It's pretty casual for me as I just had a few errands to run. I had to take my cat to the vet for a check-up as he's had a little cold, but he's all good now. His cute little face looking at me through the cat basket melts my heart haha. 

My favourite thing in this outfit is my new pair of shoes, I love them! Been wanting a studded pair for a while now, but they had to be the perfect ones. These are a little more fancy than the plain studded shoes I've seen around, I love their subtle sparkle. These are also one of my favourite pairs of shorts, they're not too tight around the thighs which is a nice change as most of the ones I own are pretty cosy on the legs. 

I'm excited to be going to Ikea later, it's been a while! Can't wait to see what pretty things they have in store this time, I'll be sure to show you if I get anything exciting :)

Lust list 003.

August 21, 2012

001. I first saw this jacket in store a couple of weeks ago and it's oh so perfect. I've got a thing for jackets with faux fur collars. And faux leather. And black.

002. I've heard lots of positive things about this spot remover. Apparently it's even helpful for those red marks spots leave you with, which sounds very good indeed.

003. I can never resist having a little sniff of this body scrub when I'm in Boots, and I'm in need of a different one so I think this will be it!

004. This foundation sounds lovely from all the reviews I've read about it. Just fancy trying a different one instead of repurchasing Estee Lauder double wear.

005. Oh my god, when I saw this bag I squealed. It's adorable! I'm obsessed with anything which has cute animal drawings/prints. I have so many similar ones saved in my Etsy favourites, but I think this one is the best I've seen.

006. I saw this notebook in a little shop in town, it's very good quality and feels nice to hold. Plus the design is really sweet.

007. This colour looks so beautiful, I'd really love a new pink-toned red nail polish. I want all the colours in Topshop though, it was a hard choice to pick one for this wish list!

Here is my latest lust list for you all. Let me know if you have any experience of/opinions on any of the beauty products, I'd love to hear!

Haven't done one of these posts in a while so I thought it was about time :) As you can see, most of my posts revolve around food and drink haha. I've had lots of really nice days and evenings whilst I've been on holiday from work, it's been so good to have a break. 

Hope everyone's having a lovely day!

Evening all! I know this outfit isn't very exciting but it's what I wore yesterday to go out for a drive and island adventure with my boyfriend. It's so nice now that he has a car, we can do much more things without worrying about walking/cycling all the way there.

I have lots of pretty pictures to share from my day, but I thought I'd save those for another post.

I'm completely in love with my little Pulp Fiction top! It's one of my favourite movies ever, so when I saw this large mens t-shirt I just knew I had to have it. I didn't take too much care in cutting it, but I'm happy with how it turned out. This skirt is so pretty but it's ridiculously short haha so even though it was a warm day I had to wear some tights.

Hope everyone's having a nice weekend so far, I've just been out on my bike and now I'm starving so I must go make dinner :)

I've also recently remade a Formspring account, so if you'd prefer to ask me a question on there please feel free x

Current skincare | Soap & Glory.

August 16, 2012

I've never actually been all that into skincare products. For a long time I was just using any soap I could find to cleanse my face, and then makeup wipes every night to take off my makeup. But when I finally did decide to use better products, I had to try a few brands first before I found my favourites. I do really like brands like Simple, and even some Superdrug or Boots own brand stuff, but Soap & Glory are now my most loved.

I love their attractive and cute packaging, as well as their cleverly thought out names. I've been using these products in my daily skin routine for a couple of months now, and I really feel they've only done good things for my face.

If you'd like a proper review on any of the products please let me know. What are your favourite skincare products?

Hey sweeties, hope you've all had a nice day. I spent the afternoon in town with my sister. We browsed some charity shops and went for ice cream, and it was such lovely weather.

I'm sure you can all tell I have a major love for anything leopard print. While I was clearing out a couple of clothes drawers last night, I found this top stuck down the back. It's always nice to find something you had forgotten all about :)

I've actually got a bit of a head cold so I feel an evening of many cups of tea coming on (not much different there haha). Think I'll watch a couple of movies as I haven't sat down to watch one properly in a while. Enjoy the rest of your evening!
