What's New In My Wardrobe

It’s fair to say I’m a little excited to see this Autumn Trends, I’ve pushed the boundaries this year and tried some styles that I would never normally have worn. As you know I’m a pink, floral girl, through and through, yet somehow when I tried these pieces on I felt confident and chic, they will be worn quite a lot over the coming months. I don’t know about you but I always find it tricky to style at this time of year, too warm for some things and too cold for others. Give it a few months and all I’ll be wearing is knitted dresses and knee high boots, oh and hats, lets not forget the hats. In the last few weeks of checking the on line stores I’ve practically fallen in love with everything I’ve seen. Our styles do evolve over time, but I think I’ve found some gorgeous items that fit with the Trends for Autumn 2018, yet I still feel like me when I wear them. They are the perfect pieces for my Autumn transitional wardrobe and I’ll be able to style them with so many things I already own.

You seemed to like my Spring Fashion Haul so I thought I’d show you all the new pieces I picked up from various High Street stores over the last few weeks.

What's New In My Wardrobe

Ankle boots are perfect for this time of year, this pair from Topshop are such a gorgeous neutral colour and extremely versatile. They’re great worn without tights if you want to pair them with cute skirts or dresses, as this shade is very flattering. And when the temperatures do start to drop they will look amazing with a pair of light coloured jeans or trousers. I absolutely love the block heel and pointed toe, which is very on trend for winter. It’s been ages since I bought a new pair of ankle boots and I can’t wait to start wearing these.

What's New In My Wardrobe

I wasn’t sure about this Snake Print Midi Shirt Dress at first as I honestly didn’t think I could pull it off. It’s so different for me. I had desperately been trying to get hold of the Topshop one that’s all over Instagram, but sold out as soon as it came in stock. I found this great alternative from New Look and I absolutely love it, it’s such a beautiful, versatile dress. When the weather does start to get colder I’ll be wearing this with boots and a faux fur jacket, you could also wear a jumper over the top. The shirt style is different for me too, but I think it looks such a classic design and feels lovely to wear. The quality is pretty good considering it’s from New Look. It looks super chic and will be worn loads over the coming months.

What's New In My Wardrobe, Pink Faux Leather Jacket

I’d been after a pink faux leather biker jacket for ages and as soon as I saw this one from ASOS it had to go straight into my basket. I also had a £10 loyalty voucher to put towards the cost, so that was a bonus. A lightweight jacket is any girls wardrobe staple, this one isn’t super warm but great to add an additional layer to your outfit without getting too hot on milder days. It’s perfect to add a touch of Autumn to your transitional wardrobe. I love everything about it, the colour is gorgeous and the gold hardware make it look super chic. This has to be my favourite piece from the entire haul.

What's New In My Wardrobe, New Look PVC Skirt

I wanted to add a few skirts into my Autumn wardrobe that weren’t floral, yes, I know, don’t worry, I am feeling ok. There’s nothing wrong with trying something different once in a while. The first one I bought was this Tan PVC Midi Skirt from New Look which also it also comes in black and burgundy. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and looks a lot more expensive than it was and doesn’t have that cheap, plastic feel that some PVC skirts have. It’s a real classic item to have. I’ve styled it with a chunky jumper and heels, it would also look amazing worn with my snakeskin blouse, a pretty cream blouse or a thin roll neck top. I’ve also seen people wearing them with a slogan T-shirt and trainers.

I’ve styled mine with this gorgeous slouchy jumper from Warehouse, which I already owned.  I love the trumpet sleeves and the neutral shade goes with everything, it’s an absolute dream to wear. Styling it with the PVC skirt is a great way to dress up a casual jumper.

What's New In My Wardrobe

The second skirt I’ve bought is this pretty Polka Dot Midi Skirt from Nasty Gal, it’s such a gorgeous autumnal colour and the perfect length on me. It’s so easy to throw on with a top and pair of heels, as I’ve done in the photo, it will also look amazing worn with a chunky jumper, ankle boots and a jacket when the weather’s not so warm. It’s one of those skirts that will take you from day to night and I’ll be reaching for it year after year.

What's New In My Wardrobe

I guess you could say I’m an animal print convert, considering it was a print I never thought I could wear. Now I know I feel comfortable and confident these items will be with me for a few years to come, they’re classic styles and not too over the top.

This snake print shirt is from Marks and Spencer, unfortunately I can’t find it on line but it may still be in some of the stores. It fits beautifully and I love the crinkle effect throughout the shirt. Having long sleeves means I can also wear it with my cream faux fur gillet and jeans for a more casual look. I think it goes perfectly with the nude cotton maxi skirt and equally it would look amazing worn with my Tan PVC skirt or white trousers. Snake print is definitely a huge trend this season and it’s all over the high street.

What's New In My Wardrobe

Accessories are a great way to introduce animal print into your wardrobe if you don’t want wear it head to toe. I picked up these gorgeous Snake Print Slingback Heels from Dorothy Perkins while they were on offer and I’m so glad I did. The heels  are not too high, roughly 3 inches, they feel so comfortable and look really chic. They have a real 80s feel about them, I love the pointed toe and sling back strap. Considering they’re snake print I was surprised at how many outfits I could wear them with, my shoes are usually a plain colour. I was so excited to get these that I wore them straight away.

What's New In My Wardrobe

I couldn’t resist this cute Leopard Print Bucket Bag from Topshop and fell in love with it as soon as I first held it. It goes with so many outfits and look adorable. The straps are faux leather, it can be worn cross body or used by the shorter handle, and the animal print panels have a soft, furry feel to them. It doesn’t look that big but inside is actually a decent size, I’m able to fit my mobile, makeup, wallet, hair brush and keys.

Have you jumped on the animal print trend? What kind of style will you be wearing this Autumn?

My Most Worn Summer Accessories

If you’re anything like me, I absolutely love switching up my accessories over the summer and chances are you’ve probably already seen most of these all over my blog and Instagram.  Accessories can completely change the look of an outfit and I’ve collected quite a few this summer. I did go a bit spend happy at the beginning of the season, I never was a minimalist but it certainly made putting together an outfit a lot more fun in the mornings. You’ll see from the theme of this post that the colour pink has featured heavily with my accessories, no surprise there then. Pastels were a huge trend during Spring and Summer, this was music to my ears as I wear them most years. These are some of my favourite accessories that I’ve worn a lot and I’ve put them together all in one post for you to see which ones I loved the best.

Basket Bags

I’ve definitely been lusting over basket bags this year, they just scream Summer and look so pretty with flowy dresses or a white broderie anglaise outfit. I almost gave in and bought one in a really bright playful style from Topshop after seeing it all over Instagram. Luckily I found these two light embroidered bags in a charity shop for four quid each, both in perfect condition. I was lucky enough to be sent the dark camel basket bag by fashion brand Tobi and fell in love with it’s cross body style as soon as it came into my possession. The strap sits comfortably on the shoulder without digging in, the clasp pops shut securely and inside is fully lined. Although it’s not a huge bag, it’s still a decent size to put a few bits in. These three bags have all been out exploring with me on more than one occasion this Summer.

I wanted a watch with a blush pink strap for so long, all the ones I’d fallen in love with were out of my price range, Adrian bought me this one from Anne Klein, I love the classic design and rose gold detail and the neutral colour means it will go with most of my day outfits.

I adore wearing pretty gold jewellery with any outfit, most of the items I own are dainty, feminine pieces that work for day or night. I absolutely love wearing this rose gold Ted Baker Cuff Bracelet , no surprise it has a pink floral design at each end.

Another favourite has been this beautiful gold layered necklace* to add a hint of glamour to a simple day dress. The smaller chain is in a choker style and the longer chain includes a disc pendent which sits perfectly just below the collar bone. I think it’s one of the prettiest necklaces I’ve ever seen.

I usually wear quite delicate items of jewellery  but wanted to add a few more statement piece to my collection. I already wear the large gold leaf earrings and pink geometric necklace which you’ll see in the main photo. I went for something completely different with this gorgeous chunky bracelet from Lola Rose. The colour is Moon Quartzite and made up of 9 semi-precious grey toned stones that are held together with dainty, sparkly rose gold beads. The bracelet has an adjustable Chinese knot clasp and allows you to easily alter the size for the perfect fit on your wrist. The colour and style look amazing with a tan, it surprised me how much I have worn it.

The Perfect Summer Occasion Outfit

Bags

I’d spent most of last year eyeing up lot’s of designer bags with the bracelet style handle and oh my word, how bloomin expensive are they? My bank balance wouldn’t cover it, that’s for sure. Thank the lord for high street versions which are much more affordable.

The Nude one from Amazon is such a versatile colour and practically goes with everything, it’s a dupe for the Chloe Nile Bag and surprisingly really good quality. The Pink Bag from Guess made an appearance quite a lot this summer. I think it looks super cute with my floral dresses and I absolutely love the colour. They’re both the perfect size to fit a few bits in, I’ve worn them cross body using the adjustable strap during the day or by holding the gold circle bracelet handle to add a bit of sophistication to an evening outfit.

This River Island white cross body bag definitely has designer vibes, the boucle and pearl embellishment across the front flap looks absolutely beautiful and certainly adds a touch of class to my summer occasion outfits. Again I love that it has two straps, one that’s long and adjustable or a shorter one which can be worn hung in the crook of your arm. It’s good quality and a decent size with two main compartments to fit all my junk in. And I’m not finished with it yet, this is going on a lot more outings over the next few months, it’ll look fab with some of my neutral toned outfits for Autumn.

My Most Worn Summer Accessories

It wouldn’t be a Rosie Loves Life blog post without pink accessories, now would it? If I honestly had to narrow it down to two bags that I’ve been soooo in love with, then it would be these two. I’d wanted a velvety quilted bag for as long as I can remember. On a rare visit to TK Maxx back in the spring I saw this one from Marc B hanging all alone on the rack and I immediately knew I had to have it. Things got even better when I discovered it was reduced from £45 down to £20, oh yes, I was at the till quicker than you could say gold chain. It may be diddy in size but believe me, it’s like the Tardis inside with so many deep pockets.

The faux seude pink bag from Topshop is just as gorgeous, and as with the Marc B bag, the chain pulls through to make one long strap or two shorter ones. From the moment I got these two bags home it wasn’t long before they went on their first outings. I featured the Topshop one in my How I Style A Pleated Skirt post and love the whole outfit.

As if I don’t own enough pairs of shoes, but I didn’t have that many with block heels. The first pair I bought the moment I saw them on Josie’s Instagram, they are from Topshop and have a ruffle design with a chunky block heel. They’re also a pretty good dupe for a pair of Kate Spade sandals only a lot cheaper. The pinky nude pair are from Kurt Geiger and I bought them in the sale, I’m all for a good bargain. These have a scalloped edge with a lower block heel and look super feminine. I’ve pretty much worn them all summer.

Sunglasses

Ok, I admit that sunglasses are an excellent way of hiding to the rest of the world that you’ve dragged yourself in at 3am after one too many Prosecco’s (or in my case stayed up late watching Netflix, lol!) but they do protect your eyes and help reduce your perfectly serum-ed skin from getting wrinkles. I found my dream pair of sunglasses a few years ago and they’re an absolute classic. The Tortoiseshell pair I picked up in Boots still leave the house with me most days, they probably know their way out the door by themselves. I was trying to be a liiiiittle bit more trendy when I purchased this pair of rose gold mirror sunglasses from Coconut Lane, they’ve since become my second most worn pair of sunglasses. Not sure what possessed me to buy the white sunglasses from River Island because they are unlike anything I’ve ever worn before, but I love them. They’re a bit more fun than my usual styles but hey, there’s nothing wrong with stepping out your comfort zone once in while, right girls?

Spring Trends

Spring is practically on our door step and sadly it’s almost time for my knee high boots and chunky knits to go into storage until next year. It does mean new season clothes and making that transition from Winter to Spring. I thought you’d like to see the key trends that I’ll be wearing this year.

Spring is one of my favourite seasons when it comes to fashion, I get so excited to see pastels, lace and pink back in the shops. This year they were huge on the catwalk and now that high street brands have made them into more wearable, every day pieces I’ve been adding a few new items into my wardrobe so that I can start wearing some of the Spring Trends right now. I’ve tried following trends before, just because everyone else is wearing them, and I’ve bought things that simply don’t suit me. Last year I had a massive clear out, it was actually quite shocking how many items I’d not worn. The pieces that were left hanging in my wardrobe were things I felt good in, they were girly, feminine items and could be mixed together to make so many different outfits. I had followed my own personal style.

Spring Trends

Pastels

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s excited that pastels are actually a huge trend this year, yay my personal style is back in fashion. I’ve loved wearing pastels, pinks and nudes for so many years and I already have quite a selection of pastel knits, coats and accessories that work well together to make a pretty Spring outfit. I get my knitwear and tops from New Look, H&M, Topshop and ASOS, where I’ve found some affordable, good quality pieces. I’m also still in love with my pink cord mini skirt which I got for my Birthday, it look’s gorgeous with my new pink coat.

Accessories are a great way to bring your outfit up to date, if you don’t fancy head to toe pastel why not give a gentle nod to the trend by adding a bag or pair of shoes. I love this blush pink, faux suede bag from Topshop, it has a gold chain which can be extended into a single strap and worn cross body or pulled together to make two handles and worn on the shoulder. Considering it’s size, this bag is actually quite spacious so you can fit more than just your mobile and keys in it, and it doesn’t make your outfit look too bulky. I’ve also fallen in love with these round, block heeled shoes from Dorothy Perkins. They are super feminine and the rose pink shade goes with so many things I already own, they will be worn with my floral dresses and midi skirts over the coming months.

Lace

Lace was another Spring trend I was excited to see on the highstreet this year. There are loads of different styles of lace tops around and they can totally transform an outfit. I found this beautiful long sleeve lace blouse on ASOS, to make it wearable now I popped it on underneath a lightweight v-neck jumper as it’s perfect for layering. It looks gorgeous when worn alone with midi skirts or high waisted trousers. It’s the sort of top that instantly dresses up a pair of jeans, just add a cross body bag and pair of heels and you have a wonderful Spring outfit.

Spring Trends

Midi Shirts

I love wearing midi skirts, they’re a flattering length without looking too frumpy and it’s a style that suits my height (I’m just short of 5ft 8”). Midi skirts are a key spring trend that can be worn casual with a sweat top and trainers or pretty blouse and heels, whatever suits your personal style. I love to wear this pleated peach midi skirt with a high neck lace top, a thin knit and block heels, it will also look fabulous during the summer months with a camisole top and strappy sandals.

Florals

I was so excited to start wearing floral skirts and dresses again, I’ve been layering up with thin knits and a cream belted coat for a wearable Spring look. A floral dress is my go-to piece and it practically goes with anything, pair it with some ankle boots or block heels for a day look and a pair of pointed heels if I’m going out in the evening. This season I’ve been wearing my floral skirts a lot with pretty blouses and lace tops for a super feminine outfit and they will see me right through to the warmer months when I’ll throw on a t-shirt and a pair of sandals,

Spring Trends

Lilac

Lilac is another Spring Trend that I already have in my wardrobe. I found this beautiful lilac shift dress on Amazon last Summer, it’s probably not quite warm enough for me to wear it just yet but it won’t be long before I can style it with a cream blazer and nude heels for a fun girly outfit. These lilac shoes have been in my wardrobe for years and look amazing worn with a pair of white cropped trousers and a white lace top. I just need a bag like this one I’ve seen in Topshop and my look is complete.

Spring Trends

Trench Coats

Trench coats have been around for years and are the perfect way to transition your outfit from Winter to Spring. I absolutely fell in love with this blush pink wrap coat after seeing it on Katie Kirk’s Instagram. It’s slightly on the heavier side but just what you need for layering up on a crisp Spring morning, it’s a 3/4 length, making it a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe this season.

Then you have the more traditional style of Trench Coat which can make any outfit look chic and pulled together. I’ve been wearing mine with midi skirts and thin knits but this style of coat looks equally as good styled with a t-shirt, pair of jeans and ankle boots. Knowing the ever changing weather in the UK this coat will get an awful lot of wear over the coming months.

Spring Trends

The Finishing Touches

Lets not forget those little extras that complete an outfit. If the rest of your outfit is quite plain, a pretty floral scarf will instantly give a lift to your look. You don’t have to spend a lot on accessories, I picked this pastel one up from Primark last summer for a grand total of £2. I adore wearing pretty gold jewellery with any outfit, most of the items I own are dainty, feminine pieces that work for day or night. I absolutely love wearing this rose gold Ted Baker Cuff Bracelet , no surprise it has a pink floral design at each end. To finish off my outfit, I’ll add a spritz of my favourite fragrance. My current favourite is Victoria Secret’s Love Eau De Parfum, it has a light, fresh smell with hints of juniper and apricot blush, making it perfect for wearing on a Spring day.

Victoria Secrets Love Eau De Parfum

I also have my eye on some check prints at the moment, there are some gorgeous over sized blazers and knee length skirts, which I can team with items I already own. Keep an look out on my Instagram Stories where I often share outfit of the day photos and you’ll see me wearing these items a lot over the coming months.

What’s your favourite Spring outfit? Are you ultra feminine like me or do you prefer a more casual look?

autumn clothing haul

Hurray, we’re finally in Autumn, guess how excited that makes me! If you’ve read my Autumn post then you’ll know how much I love stocking up on clothes for the new season. Twice a year I have a wardrobe clear out to make way for any new purchases and store any clothes I won’t be wearing until the next season. I’ve been shopping in some of my favourite stores including H&M, New Look and Next, so I’ve saved up all the items to show you what I bought in my high street clothing haul.

It is hard to photograph fashion items for a clothing haul blog post, so I’ll style them up and post a few pictures on my Instagram.

autumn fashion haul

I had been wanting a dungaree dress for ages but none of the ones I tried on seemed to fit in the right places. While I was out doing my grocery shopping in Sainsburys I came across this dark blue, knee length denim dungaree dress and as soon as I tried it on it fitted perfectly. It has buttons all the way down the front, a tie waist belt and two deep pockets on the hip, I think it’ll look great styled with tights ankle boots and a roll neck jumper underneath. I also picked up this long sleeve stripped T-shirt, it’s one of those basic items I never seem to have enough of and it will look equally good worn underneath this dress.

autumn fashion haul

Admittedly it was YouTube that influenced me to buy this dress but I fell in love with it as soon as I saw someone wearing it in their vlog. Most of my dresses are either too thick or too summery to wear during the first few months of Autumn and Winter. This chiffon midi dress is from New Look and has the floral and dotty print, it has long sleeves with tie cuffs and a wrap over style neckline with lace up detail down to the waist. This will look amazing styled during the day with tights, boots, a black biker style jacket and my wide brimmed hat. I’m so excited to be able to start wearing this dress now.

New Look dress with bardot neck

Whilst shopping at New Look I also fell in love with this beautiful black floral print dress, OK, so technically it’s still a summery dress but it was in the sale and I thought it would look great with heels for an evening out or worn with boots during the day if we suddenly had a week of Autumn sunshine. As well as the floral print it has a silvery stripes going down the length of the dress, I think this makes it look even more pretty. It has a large frilly, Bardot collar which is not my normal style, you have to step out of your comfort zone once in a while! It fit’s like a dream and I am going to get so much wear out of this dress.

river island check shirt

Autumn and Winter maybe the time I love to get cosy but I don’t always want to wear a baggy T-shirt on days where I’m dressing a bit more casual. I found this red and navy check shirt from River Island and it was just what I was looking for. It’s made from the softest cotton material and it’s not too thick so I can layer it up on extra cold days. I love that it has poppers down the front of the shirt, making it easy to get on and off, this shirt will look great styled with jeans and boots or under the denim dungaree dress. I also like that it has a scooped hemline, rather than one going straight across, so it’s more flattering for my body shape.

H&M loose knit jumper

I’d popped into H&M to see what knitwear they had in store when  I came acrose this beautiful loose knit jumper in powder pink and I was at the checkout before anyone could grab it out of my hand! I wanted to replace a similar jumper I’ve got in grey from a few years back, this time with something a bit more colourful. I love the baggy style of this one, it’s the kind of jumper you can throw on with a pair of jeans, boots and a coat or a pair of leggings for a lazy day at home.

pink knitted walking socks

Every Autumn there are two things I always stock up on: socks and a new pair of slippers. I have extremely cold feet, even in a heatwave, and I’ve already got quite a lot of pairs of cute patterned pairs of socks, so this year I thought I’d go for plain pink. Both of these pairs of socks came from a company called Sock Snob, which I have only just discovered. They are actually walking socks but they are so thick and soft that they will keep my feet warm and toasty. Last year I picked up a cute pair of fluffy cat slippers, so I thought I’d invest in something a bit more grown up! These pink fluffy ones are from Sainsburys, they have a hard sole and the softest faux fur lining. I like that they completely surround my feet so they won’t slip off!

matalan autumn pyjamas, next long sleeve autumn pyjamas

I don’t think I’ve done a clothing haul where I haven’t featured at least one pair of pyjamas! I’m sure I didn’t need any, but a new pair of cosy pjs every autumn is the law, isn’t it? The darker woodland print pyjamas and the pink coffee print pyjamas are both from Matalan. Both pyjama sets have short sleeve tops and elasticated waist bottom with ribbed ankle cuffs, I got them in the next size up as I don’t like to feel too restricted in bed but these pyjamas are so comfortable. Then I treated myself to the most adorable pair that I’ve ever owned! The neutral woodland print pyjamas are from Next and they are made of the softest material that feels almost like a flannelette texture. The top has long sleeves and the bottoms have elasticated waist with the cutest little bow detail. I am going to be so warm and snug wrapped up in these on a cold night. Is it acceptable to wear pjs out during the day?

I hope you enjoyed my clothing haul? if you’d like to find out what makeup I’ll be wearing this Autumn then head over to my recent post. Have you bought any new items this season?

We’re round to another monthly favourites post again and this month I have been trying a number of new products, luckily most of them I’ve really loved using. May was also a great month for me as I had my cousin come to stay for a long weekend, we had a fantastic time and generally enjoyed each other’s company. As much as I love her I almost feel the need to put my makeup and wardrobe under lock and key so she doesn’t help herself to my stuff without asking!

As we suddenly had a mini heatwave in the UK I wanted a body spray that would freshen me up during the day and still smell divine, not a heavy perfume. Superdrug have introduced their Layering Lab range with 6 options to choose from. You can spray two of the scents at once to create your own unique smell or just wear one on it’s own. After smelling all of them I decided to opt for Fresh which has a delicious fruity, citrus smell and it’s such a bargain at only £2.99 that I will probably purchase one of the other scents too. I’ve been wearing it almost every day and carrying in my bag for when I need to freshen up.

After being wrapped up in thick woollies for so many months, I wanted to give my body some pampering. I always suffer from dry skin on my elbows, knees and ankles but this Scrub Love Detoxifying Activated Charcoal Body Scrub from scrublove.com has really help sort those areas out.  It smells so different to what I’m used to with body scrubs, but it made my skin feel so soft and hydrated. I love that it’s 100% natural ingredients, this one contains Avocado and Aloe Vera, which are both great for dry, sensitive skin.

Who doesn’t love a good face mask as part of there weekly skincare routine. I’ve had a few break outs around my nose, chin and across my forehead, I put it down to getting hot and sweaty during the warmer weather. While I was on the Lush store stocking up on bath bombs I came across this Cupcake Mask, I think it was the name that caught my eye rather than the actual product at first because it’s actually meant for oily skin. However after trying it for a few times, I couldn’t help fall in love with it. I’ve only been applying it to areas on my skin that have had problems and it’s pretty much sorted them out. Plus it smells amazing, I had to try not to eat it!

If you’re like me and suffer from dry flaky lips occasionaly then you need to try Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. You simply apply with your finger and gently rub it in and it leaves your lips feeling wonderfully soft and it’s completely removed any dead skin, I then just apply my favourite lip balm. It smells incredible and leaves your lips with a gorgeous sweet taste afterwards. I’ve been wearing a lot of liquid lipsticks lately and some of them can really dry out my lips, but this gorgeous scrub has made my lips feel so smooth and ready to apply whatever lip colour I’ve chosen that day.

There were some days I’ve not wanted to wear much makeup but still wanted to have a natural, summer glow. I’ve loved using these No7 Perfectly Bronzed Bronzing Pearls to give my face a nice healthy, holiday look. I use a medium sized makeup brush, swirl it over the pearls and apply to areas of my face where I want it to look as though I’ve been out in the sun. It is highly pigmented so you only need to apply a small amount if you’re pale like me. I can see I’ll be using these a lot over the coming months.

There had to be a liquid lipstick in here somewhere, didn’t there? I’ve not used many GOSH products before but after discovering I had some points on my Superdrug card I thought I’d treat myself to these gorgeous items. The Liquid Matte Me Lips is a stunning pink in shade Berry Me (no 006) and feels so lovely to wear, it’s not drying and stays on pretty much all day, The eyeshadow  is beautiful, this one is in Back To Nature (001) which has four gorgeous earthy toned shadows and is perfect for an every day look, I absolutely loved wearing all four shades.

Honestly, I cannot resist Jemma’s shop on Etsy that I have so many of her prints all over my office wall. These two stunning  copper quotes help keep me motivated every time I’ve a day when I feel I can’t achieve what I’ve set out to do, I’ve had a lot of moments like that this past month, maybe it’s the change in the weather! Anyway, I would loved to have featured all of the things I’ve had from Jemma in this month’s favourite but we’d be here all day. I can’t recommend her enough for prints, notebooks, cute trinkets and stationery. You really should have a look for yourself.

Last, but not least, this has been my favourite outfit during May. This short sleeved, knee length floral dress from Dorothy Perkins has been perfect for the gorgeous weather. It’s fitted around the top half and flares out at the waist and made of soft jersey material. I’ve worn the dress with a pair of sandals and this wonderful pinky, nude and black tote bag I got on a recent trip to Primark. The bag has two grab handles with a longer strap and inside there is one larger compartment with two zipped sections. This bag goes with so many other outfits too. On chillier days I’ve loved wearing my faithful denim jacket from GAP. It’s last years but I still get a lot of wear out of it and it just looked lovely with this dress as well as so many other items in my wardrobe this season.
