I don’t usually do these kinds of posts on the blog but I thought seen as I was doing a youtube video on my April favourites, it’d tie in nicely! To me favourites videos are so much more interesting to watch because you get to see what people have been using and have fallen in love with, I find them particularly good for beauty bits!! This videos a bit of a mix with beauty, fashion and life bits all rolled into one! I’d definitely say that to me the Benefit stuff has stood out the most. The brow gel is the perfect match and gives an amazing natural and defined brow and the cheekathon is ridiculous value for money, not to mention that all 5 shades are all kinds of amazing! Let me know what you think! I’d love it if you subscribed to my youtube and give this video a thumbs up if you like it! Shop My April Favourites I’d love to hear what you guys have been loving this April! I’m always on the lookout for new things to try – especially books! I’m really trying to get back into reading at the minute so would love your recommendations if you have any! One last thing! Let me know if there’s a video you want me to film too! If there’s something particular you want to see, like how to style a certain item, a wardrobe tour, maybe a Q&A or a look at my shoe collection? Let me know!

The £12 Top You Need

This top is £12 my friends. OK, it’s £12.60 but “the £12 top you need” is a lot more catchy than “the £12.60 top you need” no? I’ve been eyeing up tops like this for a while since they’ve been all over the insta girls who live somewhere weather appropriate for a while. At £12.60 I’m tempted to go back for every colour . . Why you need the £12 top Because I say so. who doesn’t love a bit of shoulder? It’s so understatedly sexy it hurts The bow sleeves. Do I need to explain? This top will go with anything The elasticated neckline stays. This is hard to find in an off the shoulder top – particularly one for £12.60 Did I mention it was £12.60 Buy it. Shop Cold Shoulder I’ve linked all of the colours and a few other ridiculously cheap off the shoulder tops – incase the £12 top  from Sheinside didn’t tickle your fancy but you want to get in on the shoulder action! Layering Your Jewels We all know I’m a big fan of layering when it comes to my clothes, but layering jewellery is something I’ve only really just started doing. I love those ready made necklaces from the likes of Zara with a few readily layered, but I honestly cannot be bothered with green fingers and stained tops. I feel like the older I’ve got the more I appreciate metals that won’t go ‘off’. I was sent a selection of pieces from Jewellery Box to choose from and I kind of had a Eureka moment and thought, “what if I put them all on. . at the same time?” and I did, and it was good. Sometimes I feel like these little dainty necklaces can get lost if you’re not wearing a low necked top so layering them helps them to stand out more. I feel the same with dainty rings, I’m generally a lanky person and that applies to everything, including my fingers. As a lanky fingered gal I find dainty rings can sometimes accentuate the lanky-ness and get a tad lost. Enter layering. These two rings on the same finger have way more of an impact than if they were on separate fingers –see what I mean? Jewellery box has the biggest range of pieces like this for such affordable prices, I honestly didn’t know when to start when I was looking. It’s so nice to have such a great range for affordable prices and better still it won’t turn your skin green. When it’s only £7.35 for a sterling silver necklace dipped in 18t gold you can afford to layer! *Arrow Necklace : Jewellery Box *Infinity Necklace : Jewellery Box *Rope Effect Ring : Jewellery Box *Infinity Ring : Jewellery Box *Top : Sheinside Jeans : Asos Shoes : Kenzo @ Coggles // High St Alternative Bag : Zara // Cheaper non leather Alternative Sunglasses : Old // Similar Alternative All photography by Kirk Schwarz – Instagram – Website Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ to stay up to date with…

A Lazy Girls Guide to Getting Dressed

From one lazy girl to another – just assuming cos you’re here reading this – but let’s face it anyone would like to look good with minimal effort, wouldn’t they? I bring to you the lazy girls guide to getting dressed. basically, being comfy and not trying hard yet still achieving that I just threw this on look after actually just throwing it on. Shop The Post Shop my look by clicking on the images below! Lazy Girls Guide To Looking Good You probably noticed from my enthusiasm for the pyjama trend that whilst I do like to look good, I am not one to agree with the phrase it hurts to look this good because no. Unless were talking about shoes, in which case it’s a whole different ball game. Comfortable clothes are a must, I always feel more confident when I’m comfortable in what I’m wearing and have you never heard of the phrase you’re never fully dressed without a smile? Choose a Statement Piece For me, it’s this white Jigsaw jacket I’ve been living in. The collarless, tailored style finishes off any look and looks like I’ve made an effort. Even if in reality I’m wearing baggy ripped jeans and an old jumper, oh wait. . I am.  I think the fact that it’s white is what makes it more of a statement piece but anything tailored is great – never thought I’d be one to say that. Accessorize Accessories are key in my lazy girls guide for when you want to jazz up your jeans and jumper, I’ve added some fishnet socks with my Zara shoes (more on those shortly) and my trusty Zara bag which is still my favourite and will continue to be until I get my hands on a Gucci. Some think it’s a little over priced at £90 but to me it’s worth every penny – I’m down to about 1p per wear. If you did want to get something similar for a little cheaper, Mango do this incredible copy for just £39.99. So those Zara shoes are beautiful, I’ll give them that. . but let’s just take a moment to refer to my previous note about painful fashion. They cripple my feet. I’m currently wearing only trainers from pulling my foot muscle trying to keep them on, did I mention the slingback is too long for the shoe? the only way to keep them on is by clenching your toes and making a blister plaster wall underneath the strap. Not quite the look I was going for. I still wear them though, because fashion. *Jacket : Jigsaw Jumper : H&M Old Jeans : Asos Shoes : Zara Bag : Zara Socks : Asos Be a doll and follow me on Bloglovin’, it’s the best way to stay up to date with all of my posts don’t you know!?  I would love it if you also subscribe to my youtube channel and don’t forget to share this post with any fellow lazy girls!!!

All things pink and blush and of course the full on head to toe, no messing pyjamas look.
