A girl was wearing this swing dress at the meeting I went to the other week, and I fell deep in love with it. It's not often denim does a lot for me. I've just never been a huge fan of denim. However here I am channeling double denim. I picked up the dress at 24.99 and then the jacket in the sale for £7 and then some cheeky staff discount too! Although I'm not too sure if the jacket is a keeper, It's not my usual style. While I'm a everyday monochrome wearer the jacket isn't fully my cup of tea. I think I just buy things for the sake of it these days.

This summer my favourites print has been the tropical print. And after having a whole trend with the tropical print, I wanted everything with the print. This shirt was one of them, "it's pretty shocking but I want it anyway" purchases. I ended dup buying it and It's a classic throw on and let it do the talking piece. No need to add a fancy statement necklace or snazzy bottom the shirt own's the outfit.

STRIPES | I seriously can't bloody get enough of stripes. I think I'd happy buy three striped top's that look exactly the same and happily assure myself I need all three. The print is such a classic trend that will always be popular within current trends.
SUNGLASSES | At the moment we are all a little confused by what's happening with the weather. One minute the sun is shining and we are getting a cheeky tan, next thing we know we're being pissed on. So these are my go-to sunglasses for my drive home when the sun actually is out and I need to block away them rays.
LIPSTICK | in shade Mademoiselle. I picked up this little beauty on my way to Malia. The holiday was all about relaxing and having myself some me time, and a laugh with my best friend. So we both got ourselves a luxury Chanel Lipstick. I've always been a fan of Chanel lippy's, however I only really take the plunge on special occasions. This one though has become a everyday favourite. It's my instant lip fix for when I start work at 7am.
BRONZE GODDESS | Another little treat on my way to Malia was this perfume from Estee Lauder! I'd been after this for so long but couldn't find it anywhere to give it a good sniff! when I saw it and smelt it, damn I was in love. The scent instantly sums up summer for me.
POLARIOD CAMERA | My brother brought me my polaroid camera for my birthday and I can't get enough of it. Photography has always been a passion of mine, from studying it, To always getting a new camera just to go shoot some pretty flowers when I was younger. I will admit I've mainly used my polaroid just for selfies, But I'm planning on buying more film and making a scrap book!

I didn't realise how much I missed the whole process of blogging. The hour long photo-shoot for just one outfit, styling my own outfit instead of a mannequin at work. I'm going to try to create more of a schedule for my posts, from beauty-fashion and lifestyle. I've really missed blogging and being able to be creative.
This is one of my go-to outfit at the moment for work. I've lived in this dress that I picked up at Zara a while back, it's a simple throw on and go dress that really doesn't need any help. I'm really into the whole black and white stripes again, let's face it, it's a staple pattern hat will never go out of style. Then the jacket. I brought this a while back, and I now have the khaki version too!

Long time no blog, hey? well here's me with a come back and of course what better way to get my bum back into blogging than to share with you a few bits I'm lusting for, and of course a few trends that I've been loving recently! Of course I've been buying plenty of clothes recently which is why I'm so confused to why i've not been doing many outfit posts. This weekend is going to be a 'Blog Admin' weekend. I'm going to sort everything out and try to get back into the community.
Anyway let's talk about how stunning these piece's are. I'm just in love with khaki. I love it when khaki comes into the shops I have to buy everything! I especially love the dungaree's I found on Triologystores.com from Alexa Chung Collection, for a right bargain too! I may have to treat myself on payday. (I'm so desperate for payday)
Fluffy keyrings! I have so many of these that I don't have enough key's or bags for them to all go on. Ever since seeing the Kardashian's with one I needed one too. Then of course stores all over the high street are now bringing out their own for half the designer price. My favourite one has to be the New Look Version.

DUNGAREE DRESS - NEW LOOK | TOP/DRESS - ZARA | SHOES - H&M
I went out shopping with a mission to find a new white dress. There's something about the grey's and the whites at the minute that I can't get enough of. I may be to do with he fact most of the trends in work have suddenly gone all white. At the moment I'm obsessed with New Look! Over the years I've fallen in and out of love with New Look. However they keep me coming back. I popped into the Flagship store in Birmingham and ended up picking up quite a few items!
I'm trying to get back into blogging, however with work at the minute I've not even had chance to just spend a day in bed watching films.

You really can't beat a new lipstick which you instantly fall in love with. Ever since spotting the collection flood through my Instagram feed I knew I had to get my hands on some of the products from the collection! Sadly all of my local TOPSHOP's and OUTFIT's all only have the bare minim of the TOPSHOP Beauty Range. This left me waiting a while until I managed to pop to Birmingham this week for a cheeky shopping spree and fell in love with this lipstick from the collection. I'll admit I brought it without watching it and just looking at the shade from view. The shade is a much brighter pink on than it is before. Although it's a very vibrant pinky shade I've instantly fell in love with the colour and the instant pop it add's to my daily looks.
Oh and can we just talk about the beautiful rose gold packaging? oh so pretty!

Basic's are becoming my new favourite pieces to wear. let's face it you can't create a look without at least one basic key item in your wardrobe. Recently with work and being a bit rushed off my feet a basic tee is something I always grab at 5:30am. I picked up this vest from Topshop and it's the perfect get up and go piece. The colour is a shade I'd never usually go for also, but with summer on it's way and the fact I go on holiday in a matter of weeks I'm exploring the summer shades.

The past few weeks, fashion has taken a back seat while I've been exploring new beauty products. I don't usually do the whole 'favourites of the month' posts but with my schedule and finding the time to blog I think still will become a great little feature for my blog. Also a great way to blend in a bit more beauty into the mix.
So first up is my current 'nude' I've been going between the nude's and the brown's at the moment. However this lipstick from MAC in shade Jubilee is a classic throw on and go shade. Then mascara, the one product that I cannot go without daily. This mascara from Yves Rocher works perfectly to add natural curls with a strong added length on top. Now foundation! I'm a cheap-skate. I will openly hold my hands up that I'll happily buy a 7.99 foundation over a £29.99 one any day. However on my recently trip to Chester Oaks I discovered the new love of my life. I've heard a lot about the ESTEE Lauder Double Wear Foundation so I had to pick it up! I can honestly say I haven't found a foundation so easy to get on with, and so long lasting. Next up, a favourite of mine for some time now, Body Shop Instablur this is my go to for the perfect base! Now for nails, all i ever have on my nails is a nude now. It's simple and does the trick! I also picked up this Michael Kors Polish from Chester Oaks. One because the shade is stunning, two because well the packaging is also stunning.

Yves Rocher is one of them brands that I discovered and instantly fell in love with. While I've only really given their skincare a go, when I was asked if I wanted to try out their new make up collection, I couldn't wait to trial the beautiful piece's. I'm especially in love with the stunning gold palette. The packaging is eye catching and beautiful. The shades that are revealed inside are light pastel green's and a dark forrest green, along with a light stone shade that's perfect for a smokey eye base. I'm also in love with my two favourite beauty products. Mascara and eye liner. These two are a product I will wear daily, so to find the right one it takes a lot to please me. Although I can say Yves rocher have out done themselves, by producing these amazing products that do exactly what I need. The mascara, with a brush, that grabs at my lashes and allows them to widen my eyes. Then the Eye Liner. I use to use still style of liner before, and completely forgot how easy and simple it was to use.
I'm still yet to play around with the shades but once I've created a look, i'll be sure to share the look.

I've recently gone back to my old ways of loving the black and grey. Despite summer slowly making it's way to us, I'm finding myself leaning more towards the darker shades than the brighter shades. However I need to get my head into the summer mode as I've finally booked a holiday! I've been lusting for some sun for a while now. So, finally me and my friend took the plunge and just booked one. This has resulted in me having 8 weeks to buy a bikini, and lots of holiday clothes.
While on the hunt for some holiday clothes I checked out my old favourites and even came across some new retailers. I managed to find SIMONS.ca. Simon's is a website that has a wide range of stock for both men and women, along with a wide range of collections from high end designers. I couldn't get enough of the range of items and brands they have available!

It's only over the past few years that Prom's in the UK have become more and more popular. Leading to it being a tradition when you hit year 11 in school. I couldn't wait for prom, I'd been obsessed with american lifestyle forever. So to have one of their traditions come to the UK was exciting and a great excuse to get dressed up and celebrate the last 5 years of GCSE's and pulling through with the rest of my year.
My favourite memory from prom has to be the preparation and planning of my whole look. I decided to go for a very 'Hollywood Glamour' style. After making it my theme in my GCSE Textiles course work I ended up taking the trend into my own prom outfit. I loved going on a hunt for my dress, searching everywhere for that perfect dress, that hopefully no one else would have. It's amazing how many different styles and colours there is available. It's a shock it didn't take me much longer to find my dress. The endless "what you wearing to prom?" every lunch time never got boring when you wanted to be nosey and get ideas from where to hunt down a good dress. In the end I ended picking up my dress in TK MAXX. It was perfect, everything I could of wanted and more. Of course it's not all about the dress. Nails, hair, fake tan it all needed to be done. I got my nails done the day before. back then I use to never wear acrylics to this was an extra treat in my eyes. Then on the day two hours before I made my way to hairdressers to have my hair styled into the perfect wavy hollywood side pin up.
So despite all the other amazing memories from prom, picking out my outfit and getting to get all dolled up and fancy for one night with all my friends was one of the best memories for me. What was yours from prom?
