Fashion's Night Out

Hi everyone,

I haven't posted for AGES, the summer has been so busy, but things are starting to calm down now so hopefully I will be able to post more!

Well, I say calming down, tonight I am going to Vogue's Fashion's Night Out in London wiht my sister and friends. If you don't know what this is about, loads of shops in the West End are opening late with special events like DJ's, discounts, free drinks, cupcakes and celebrities! Just my kind of thing (especially the free drinks while shopping!!).

Here is a link to what's happening tonight if you fancy heading down there. Is anyone else planning on going?

A impulse purchase

I just bought the new Nails Inc Autumn Winter Collection which was launched today. The colours sound great, plus I had a 20% discount code, so it was rude not to!

"Grilac" or "Griolet" is the big nail colour for the season - a mixture of grey and purple like Chanel's Paradoxal. I have been trying to find a match for the Chanel, and have purchased Jessica Venus Was Her Name and now Nails Inc's Lowndes Square below - I will post some comparison swatches when I have them both.

As I had a discount, I also bought 2 more - Basil Street and Jermyn Street.

Show and tell......

Hi everyone, hope you had a good week! Can't believe it's been that long since I last posted, it's been a manic week.

I thought I would show you how I display most of my jewellery. I don't like having things away if I can help it - I love being able to see everything at once, I find it easier to put outfits together and remember what I have!!

If I could, I would have all my clothes, shoes, bags etc in a giant walk-in closet - I get serious closet envy every time I watch Cribs!!

Where do you keep your jewellery and accessories?

Summer Skies

This summer, I have been loving blue and green nail varnish. I think they are lovely colours for summer, and a bit different to the usual corals and pinks.

Thumb to pinkie: Nails Inc Hanover Square; Barry M Cyan Blue; Barry M Pure Turquoise; Barry M Mint Green; OPI Jade is the New Black.

I have OPI Cuckoo For This Colour from the new Swiss Collection in my sights as well - just waiting for it to be released! See Scrangie's blog for some lovely pics:

Flower power

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of days, I have been having internet issues!

Today, I wore my new floral cardi that I bought in my lunch break yesterday. I have been looking for the right one for a while, so I was glad that New Look had some new styles in yesterday.

I teamed it with a cream dress from the ASOS sale, tan belt and shoes, gold jewellery and a bow hair clip.

My nail varnish is OPI Malaga Wine - one of my favourite reds.

Apologies for the mess behind me - we have just moved house and haven't put everything in its place yet!

Saturday shopping....

Hi everyone!

Today was a total girlie day. I went for a massage with my sister, then we met some friends for lunch at Nandos (if you haven't tried their Halloumi cheese yet, do, it's amazing!). Then we went shopping, and I got a few bits:

I got a cream lace jumper, black waistcoat with embellished shoulders, white vest top and a cream top with embellishment from Primark, along with some bows for my hair, big bow necklace, some earrings and a knitted headband. I also got some mink ankle boots from New Look and a striped cardigan from H&M. I have lots of these cardigans in all different colours - they are great for throwing on over a dress, or to wear with a dress and jeans.

Now, I have to get ready to go out tonight, and decide what to wear!!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend so far!

A bit of Tiffany love

I mentioned yesterday how I wear my Tiffany silver jewellery quite a lot.

I am a big fan of chunky silver jewellery, so Tiffany fits the bill nicely. Here is a collage of what I own so far - can you tell I am a bit obsessed with Polyvore at the moment?!

I also love Links of London, and have a sweetie bracelet with a snowflake charm on it (I also have a Xmas tree charm which comes out to play in November) and also a normal charm bracelet with a lipstick, pink heart, cat, empire state building, cocktail glass and the letter N, which gives you a bit of insight into my favourite things!

I am wanting this ring to match my Sweetie bracelet at the moment - it is such a bargain. As it is pay day tomorrow, I may treat myself......

Today's outfit

Here is my outfit inspiration for today.

Last night, I was going to learn how to take good photos of myself in my outfits, but I went to see Toy Story 3 and didn't end up getting back until midnight!

I love little dresses and cardigans, it seems to be my regular go-to outfit. Plus I also have an obsession with corsages, both in my hair and on my clothes at the moment!

Hi, and welcome to my blog!

This summer, I have developed a love of maxi-dresses. I always thought I would look way too overdressed in them - especially for work - but after trying some on, I bit the bullet and now I have 4! One black, which has ties that either go around your waist or as a halter neck; one royal blue strapless, one with a black bandeau top and flowery body, and my newest one - a dark grey jersey vest one from Warehouse.
I am wearing my newest one today - I always love to wear new things straight away, and I only bought this one on Monday.
I have teamed it with a light grey leopard print cardigan, black waist belt and black gladiators. Plus I am wearing my trusty silver stash of jewellery - chunky Tiffany, Gucci and Links of London!! I love my silver jewellery so much, but have to wait for birthdays and Christmas before I can add more to my collection.
Here is a collage of my outfit today - cardi, belt and shoes are similar, not the exact ones.
