Favourite Nail Polishes for Summer

Hi everyone! Here is another beauty related post. I wanted to do a post about my favourite nail polishes for summer. Because before I started writing a blog, I loved reading these sort of beauty related posts during the summer time, such as top blushes for summer, favourite summer lipsticks and so on. So I thought I would pick my favourite nail polish colours for the summer.
From the few that I have selected, the two that I like to wear on my toe nails are Rimmel Lasting Finish in 'Strawberry fizz' and Barry M Hi Shine in 'Blue Grape'. Just thought some of you might want to know that. And just also wanted to let you know that I'm currently loving the Barry M limited Edition Aquarium Collection and if you haven't tried them out yet, I suggest you do because if you don't then you are missing out. Unfortunately it's a limited edition collection so won't be in the stores for long. Let me know if you have any other favourite colours for summer, because I would love to try out other colours. Let me know what's your favourite from here. I hope this post inspired you all! Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post.

Wishlist: Beach Cover-ups

Hello everyone!! I have finally made a post about my beach cover up picks from the highstreet. It's finally that time of year of spending most of your days enjoying the weather at the beach whilst sipping on some refreshing drinks and just reading a book under the sun. But I prefer to sit in the shade as I get very unattractive patchy tan marks. There are many different types of cover-ups suitable for anyone on the highstreet, whether you like kimonos, maxi dresses or big baggy tee's. Here I've picked my favourites, there are obviously more others but I like to just show all all my top 6. So I hope this post inspired you all and also helped you have an idea of some cover ups you may decide to take with you on holiday. Let me know what your favourite cover up is? Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post!

1. Missguided Palm Print swing dress

3. Missguided Palm print maxi dress
4. Boohoo Top Bandeau maxi dress
5. Boohoo Crochet beach kaftan

Outfit: Pastel Palm Prints

Hi everyone! Okay, yes I know I can't get enough of these tropical prints. Tropical prints are so summery and they are everywhere. I have to say I'm really loving this 'tropical vibes' trend. Out of all the past summer trends of neons, tribal prints and florals, this has to be my favourite. The temporary Student Discount offer at Quiz made me buy this. So here is an outfit of pastel colours and palm/tropical prints. I love the crop peplum details. I will always love peplums because I think they don't make my figure looks so boyish. I have absolutely no curves, so peplum tops help broaden my hips a little. So I hope this outfit inspired you all, let me know what you think? Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post!

Stiletto Nails Envy

Hi Everyone! Here is a slightly different post to my usual posts. I don't usually do beauty related posts, but I think this post kinda relates to fashion as it was seen in the fashion week. So I've been seeing these stiletto nails everywhere. It may not be to everyone's taste and it definitely wasn't to my taste until recently. I got inspired to try out stiletto nails so I bought this totally bare set from Boots. I think they look super stylish but after trying these out, I'm kinda on the fence with these now. Would I buy these again? maybe if they came in a shorter size then yes I would. Because I have very tiny fingers so it didn't look that great on me. But I would definitely go for shorter ones. And the problem with these nails are that it's really difficult to text with these on. But it was worth trying out and will still be on a hunt to find shorter one. I've also added a few pictures of some stiletto nails that inspired me. Let me know what you think of stiletto nails? Have you tried them? I would love to know your opinion if you've had stiletto nails. Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post!

Outfit: Baby Blue Co-ords

Hi everyone! Some of you who have seen my co-ords Wishlist may recognise these baby blue co-ords. Making the wishlist post made me get these co-ord. I just love how simple and elegant this looks with the midi skirt and 'V' shaped neck and back detail. For some reason these pictures turned out very bright and the blue colour looks slightly washed out. But I promise, in person the blue colour is not this light. I paired it with my new favourite black platforms. And to be honest, I wasn't expecting these heels to be so comfortable. I just love how they give good height whilst being comfortable at the same time. As I am very short in height, I may need to adjust the length of the midi skirt which I do to a few of my clothes due to my height #shortgirlsproblems. So I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Let me know what you think of this outfit? I'm thinking of doing a beach cover-up wishlist so stay tuned for that!

Fashion Haul: Primark, Quiz, H&M, Fashion Union and More!

Hello everyone! I did mention that I was going to do a Haul post and here it is! There are a few items I'm still waiting for but I didn't want to wait too long so I decided to show you all what I've got so far. I don't shop every week, probably twice a month, but I shop in bulk. So meaning that when I do shop, I tend to go a little over board and then I take a break from shopping. My shopping habit was one of my main reasons for starting this blog. I always get inspired when I go shopping and see such pretty trendy pieces. So I thought starting a blog would be a great idea to show my taste in fashion and what inspires me and hopefully my post will inspire you all. So here are a few items I picked from the highstreet and online stores. All Items are listed at the bottom of this post. Let me know what your favourite items are from here? I can't wait to style these all for my upcoming blog posts! Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post!

Primark Backpack - Only £9, needed a backpack and I love how light weight this is, won't be too heavy on the shoulders. Can't wait to carry this around during the summer trips.

Quiz Palm Print Crop top - Loved the prints on this top and the little peplum adds a feminine touch

Quiz Pink Soft Skinny jeans - Super soft and love this baby pink colour

Quiz Black Suede Heels - Needed a pair of black platforms and even better, currently on sale!!

H&M Unicorn Sweater - I thought the little unicorns on this sweater looked so cute. Not the right
season to wear it now, but will keep it for when it starts to get cold. (sorry couldn't find the link on their website)

Outfit: Summer Festive Spirit

Hi everyone! How are you all? Well since it's that time of summer music festivals, what better idea than do a festival inspired outfit? So here is an outfit where I am channelling my inner bohemian. I love the prints on this skirt, they call it the 'south-west' prints. These prints and the double slit in the skirt makes it perfect for the festive season. I paired it with a lilac crop top to add some colour and also my tall gladiator sandals. I would also add a fringed bag to this outfit, but since I don't have one I couldn't add it to this outfit. You could also accessorise with a black fedora hat or a flower crown with some loose waves. So I hope this outfit inspired you all for the summer festivals. Let me know what you think?
Moving on to something else, I did a bit of shopping at a few stores but I'm still waiting for one delivery because I'm thinking of doing a collective Haul post soon because I haven't done one in a while so I can't wait for that. I love doing haul posts and I find them quite fun to read. So Thank you for reading and I'll see you in my next post!
