It'll Be All White On The Night

Bag - Zara - £20
Wedges - Topshop - £45

Don't you just love getting packages in the post? As you may have noticed i have made a few purchases from my wish list! (Saying that my nan bought me the bag and my Topshop card bought me the wedges WOOPS!) So this is just a quick post showing you my purchases.

I do have a thing for white in the summer as you can see, the handbag and wedges are a good investment as i can wear them with anything bright/patterned so will definitely get my money's worth out of them. The wedges are a nice height too, as I plan on wearing them for the races which is a long day to be stood in heels! I plan on wearing the bag and wedges with a statement dress, which i am currently on the look out for. The bag has a long strap that is detachable which is handy, and is a decent size so i can fit all my junk in it!

Neon Obsession

One of the hottest trends this season is neon, and i absolutely love it. I have been obsessing over neon bags, neon shoes, neon dresses, neon everything! In particular i am loving the green neon, and have began incorporating this into my everyday style with neon nails.
Yes i think i have said the word "neon" over seven times already, so i'll quit jibber jabbering and show you my fabulous nails already!

Barry M have a really good offer on at the moment where you can buy 2 nail polishes for £5, saving you £1. Like i needed an excuse to buy more nail polishes! I think i own every colour from Barry M now, and can always rely on them having the perfect shade i need.
I bought number 300 Acid Yellow and 301 Block Orange. I have the orange on my toes but didn't want to put you through having to look at pictures of my feet (i know most people don't like their toes but mine seriously aren't pretty!).
 I can't wait to extend my love of neon to a handbag and maybe some jewellery, as i find accessorizing is the easiest way to incorporate a trend into your everyday outfit without having to spend lots of money.
I hope you enjoyed my post! Any comments and feedback are really appreciated :)

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder...

There is nothing worse than writing a blog post after not posting anything for a few weeks; i hang my head in shame! I have had a combination of writer's block, working a lot and a lock down on spending money due to saving for my travels later this year. So i have nothing new to show you and talk about!

Excuses aside, my first post back is my latest wish list seen as i'm not allowed to buy anything! As you will probably notice i've got an obsession with neon yellow and green at the moment, which i would team with crispy white accessories and flashes of tropical print designs. Zara has got to be my favourite shop this season; i have never seen them do so many beautiful accessories before, and i am a sucker for handbags!  

From left to right clockwise:

Tropical Print Dress - Zara
White Blazer - Topshop
Pink Lipstick - L'oreal Paris Rouge Caresse
Green One-shoulder Dress - Zara
White Clutch - Zara
Arm Jewellery - Regal Rose
Yellow Clutch - Zara
Wedges - Topshop

I love simple designs and geometric patterns, and i am absolutely IN LOVE with the white clutch bag from Zara. So simple but so stylish and will make any outfit look good. I am going to the York races in June so may just have to purchase this!

Also i haven't tried the new L'oreal Paris Rouge Caresse lipstick, but i am dying to get one as i love the way it looks really light-weight but isn't sticky like lipgloss. I am a big lipstick wearer but hate lipglosses, and this seems in the middle of both which would be perfect for day-time wear.  Has anybody tried it yet? Would you recommend it?

Again apologies with my lack of posts, i am officially back on the scene and will be doing a blog re-vamp soon! I will get some outfit posts in over the weekend as i actually have a whole weekend off work starting right now (if you work in retail you will understand how actually amazing this is!).

I hope you enjoyed the post :)
