Christmas party makeup

In my last post I showed you the dress I would be wearing this party season. Seeing as tonight will be it's second festive outing, I thought I'd show you the make up I pair it with.

Tartan lust list

I think I'm finally tiring of florals. OK, that's not entirely true but I'm certainly going to try and give them a break this season. It didn't take me long to find a suitable print replacement to obsess over. Step into the spotlight: tartan. The 90''s patterned staple has been slowly creeping back into fashion circles for a little while now and has exploded for AW13. Seeing as I recently took the plunge and went blonde, I figured it was time to find some kickass tartan to match.

Let's take a look at what the high street has to offer...

Blog Makeover

So after having started my blog over a year and half ago, it felt like the time was right to give my blog a much needed makeover. It’s something I wanted to do for a while but had no idea what I wanted or where to start. I’m extremely fortunate to be friends with a hugely talented designer and illustrator, Ellie Tzoni. Of course, if that wasn’t the case then I would have trawled the web for a designer to take on the job of my blog redesign, but I have to say that I’m thrilled that someone who personally knew me could do it.

Lovebox 2013: Sunday

I've been debating whether to continue posting before my blog overhaul...but I honestly missed it too much not to squeeze in a cheeky post. Last Sunday I went to Lovebox festival - a 3 day festival in Victoria Park, East London.

Oh and apologies for the lower quality pics, I decided against bringing my camera and just took snaps on my phone!

We're currently experiencing a long overdue heatwave in London. This made for quite a different experience to last year's rainy Wireless festival. No wellies or rain ponchos needed this time! It was all about trying to keep cool and comfortable for the long, hot day ahead. Here's what I went for...

Summer wedding guest dress inspiration

I've got a wedding to go to at the end of August - the perfect excuse to buy a new dress! As any girl knows though, dress shopping can be a bit of a minefield for any occasion so I thought I would get a head start and have a little browse online. There were SO many dresses I liked but to save boring y'all, I've narrowed it down to my favourite 7. Sadly I don't think ALL of these would suit my figure but they are so gorgeous, I just had to share!

Barcelona - via my phone

This is the last post I'm going to squeeze out about Barcelona...promise! I was looking through my phone photos the other day and realised I had quite a few, especially of food which has been lacking in my previous posts. I think snapping your meal with your phone gets a lot less weird looks from the other diners than with a camera (who am I kidding, people still judge you!).

Barcelona Day 3

On our final day in Barcelona, we had an early evening flight so decided to take a long stroll to a tapas restaurant we wanted to try out. We took a different route to the first day and stopped off to have a peek inside an indoor market which enticed us inside with the gorgeous flowers outside. This was a lot less busier than the famous La Boqueria off 
Las Ramblas. There were mainly locals rather than tourists so I felt a little self-conscious papping away!

Nike running shoes

This is a bit of an impromptu post - I hadn't planned to blog till I was back from Barcelona and hopefully have some exciting pictures to share with you.

However, whilst I was out picking up some holiday essentials like sunscreen (so boring yet so necessary!) I popped into my favourite shoe store, Deichmann's. Lo and behold, I walked out with a pair of shoes. 

But not just any ol' shoes:

Confessions of a shopaholic: featuring Forever 21, H&M & Topshop

Ok, I admit, I've been shopping a little more than usual recently. A combination of lacking in basics and the weather slowly but surely picking up, it was time to inject a breath of fresh air into my wardrobe.

Dove PR event

A couple of Thursdays ago, Katie was invited to a free PR event for Dove's latest product ranges (perks of working for OK! magazine!) and asked if I wanted to come along. Champagne, canapes and free Dove goodies? She didn't need to ask twice! 

The event was tucked away in a gorgeous townhouse on Fitzroy Square. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised! I was expected to be overwhelmed by a huge room filled with flashing lights and tonnes of press. Instead we found ourselves in a small, intimate room with a heavy emphasis on pampering.
