#FASHION | Sunglasses you NEED for summer!

Sunglass season is finally upon us, well for me it is always sunglass season as i always carry a pair in my bag or have a pair stuck to my face! But least it means we dont get weird looks as to why we are wearing our sunnies in the rain ha!
I dont ever ever think a girl can have to many sunglasses, there are just so many styles and so many face shapes, so many moods and so many selfies to take ;D i have tried SO hard to narrow down my favourite glasses, which i think you may be able to at least pick one and think "yes, that style will suit me!"
You can pick up most of these stypes over at cheapasssunglasses.com  1. Lord of the rims - www.cheapasssunglasses.com Im getting a vintage x modern vibe with this, the whole rims are super modern and trendy right now but the shape and tortoise shell pattern really throw it back to the 50's. I have been wearing these non stop since i got these from cheap ass sunglasses, they actually have such a alrge collection and at THE most re…

#BEAUTY | BHS's Live Love London cosmetic range

Yay! Back doing a post on what i LOVE - makeup!
Some of you may recognise this brand this brand from your local BHS stores as that is where they are stocked. The brand is Live Love London and they are such a reasonable price for the quality. If you are a bit of a makeup hoarder like me you know that it can be pretty expensive if your always buying the likes of MAC, NARS, urban decay and so on. So i was actually suprised when i used these products and found out how pigmented they was! I popped a few shades on to my fingers so you can see what im talking about with the pigmentation, this is the love sexy palette of which all shades a shimmer. The bottom left big shade is GORGEOUS! It creates the most pigmented glitter/shimmer shade and reminds me of those MAC pigments. There is quite a colour range which i love, but it has the basic whites, browns and dark browns that you need for any eye look!
Im not a huge fan of the whites in the contour palette as for my they are too bright so i u…

#FASHION | Summer vibes from PLT

I blame Drake for the recent surge in summer vibes, i mean how can you not vibe out to "one dance" wishing you had a cocktail in one hand, some sassy heels, the most free flowing clothes and the sun beaming on your skin?! So i have linked my top picks all from Pretty Little Thing. com  The bardot crop tops are taking the fashion world by storm right now, im also feeling the flirty boho vibes from the floral skater dress and the roman type sandles. I think they are in every year but im loving the extra detailing.  
Everything is linked! Just click the image <3
peace out, im off summer dreaming *heart eyes*

#BEAUTY | My monthly beauty favourites

Seeing as there are way too many beauty products i am LOVING right now i had to compile a post so i could share them with you! I cant be keeping all the goodness to myself now can i?! I have more products than i have enough body parts to use them on BUT i cant ever see myself stopping from trying out new products :')
Lets see what i am loving..

Gerard Cosmetics  My love for this brand is no secret, i have a post on just one of the lipsticks alone,here! haha i know right? i single post on just one lipstick, sorry but i love them that much! sorry not sorry :) Aside from the gorgeous gold bullet packaging the colour range of the liquid lipsticks and lipsticks are just so me. Im such a nude/brown lip colour gal and they have such a range of them. A girl cant have too many nudes! Thats a rule to live by. So far i have UNDERGROUND, LONDON FOG and ICED MOCHA. I mean they are around £9 each which sometimes i think im mad for spending that on one item but they are truly beautiful and i actu…

#BEAUTY | Oil pulling with Mintycoco

Introducing the easy way to oil pulling with mintycoco I started oil pulling a year or so a go on and off when it became a craze and i just used ordinary coconut oil from a tub...which turned out is pretty messy haha! Putting your fingers in a tub and having the oil melt instantly to a liquid on you is just not my type of fun!
Mintycoco have introduced a convenient way of getting the oil from A to B. You basically hold the packet in your hand for a bit as it is solid, and i will quickly turn to a liquid. Which then you can just pour straight into your mouth and swish away. I just love these mintycoco packets because of their ease but also the taste. I have been known to gag once i have the normal coconut oil in my mouth because, well, really its just a bit weird have a substance like oil and the taste of it in your mouth. As the mintycoco has the mint flavour to it, it is a lot more acceptable haha it also gives a more refreshed feeling afterwards! There are lots of helpful tips and …

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin!
These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel. The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of honey and lathers up in to a…

#OOTD | A twist on a traditional 50's housewife

I decided to finally make that subtle transition. Yes, i have brought back the vintage (maybe introduced it, i have only done a few decade type posts), my real passion. Scrap that, i have an intense loving for 50's fashion, cinema and music. Maybe i have previously made excuses about how expensive it is to buy vintage clothes - cos it is haha but there is a difference to buying vintage clothes with that label or going to a charity shop and finding vintage inspired clothes. Even in some of the high st shops there are subtle vintage influences. But to me vintage clothing is easier to find in a charity shop/boot sale.
Let me explain the reason behind the title, why i think its a twist. I orignally bought this second hand dress which is formly from next for an upcoming interview i have, as i dont like to wear a boring shirt and trouser to interviews, it lacks a certain kind of personality. This dress literally called my name, i saw it as soon as i walked in and convinced myself to ca…
