WISHLIST: Spring Feelin'

topshop wishlist miss selfridge denim dress

I know it still doesn't feel like Spring, but I'm pretending it is like I have been since January. It's nice to see the tones creep into the shops, I just hope the puke pastels stay away for a little bit longer. My colour palette still seems pretty much the same as it's been for the past few months (soz) but I am trying to work in more light grey, blush tones and white to brighten it up a little!

Stand out pieces to me are the light grey and navy shirt dresses (which I have totally already ordered) and that Miss Selfridge denim dress. It's so pretty in person, so no wonder everyone went a bit cray. I also really love that marble print dress, as it's a gorgeous cut and I wish I had somewhere to wear it too! I can't wait to tuck oversized jeans into flares this S/S too, so I had to throw some of them in the mix. I can see myself ordering that stripe shirt soon!

What are you lusting after this week? Remember you can win the rose gold GHD styler and hairdryer in my latest giveaway!

Remember the light pink coat obsessed a while back? Well, I'm a little bit late to the party with that one. I picked up this coat in the AW sales and boy, was it a bargain. It feels a little bit shouldery (if you get me) but I'm sure a heavy bag or two will sort that out and it'll all soften down. I love the shade though, as it's the perfect not too sugary tone.

I'm also a bit weirdly obsessed with wearing leather boots with leather trousers. I like to pretend it's all 'off duty model' esque, but my boyfriend thinks it looks like I'm wearing thigh high leather boots. Either way, a new obsessed has begun so expect more of that in the future.

We're nearly at the weekend and payday guys, yayy. I'm very tempted to get my Gucci bag this month, what do you guys think? I'm feeling the dusty pink shade, as I desperately need to move away from black even though you know it's my favourite.

BEAUTY: Nail Favourites #8


It's Spring on the blog now *official declaration trumpet sound* so from now on, beauty posts will probably be more Spring related. If we talk about it, it'll come quicker, right? Right. So, today I'm running through all of the alternatives to those sickly pastel nail shades that will no doubt be popping up everywhere until we wish it was Winter again.

First is the beautiful green-grey shade that is Essie Maximillian Strasse-Her. Weird name, but it's a really pretty colour, somewhere in between green, grey and sometimes looks a bit blue. Think I'll be doing my nails in this next!

If you're not too keen on colour, you could always go for straight up white. For this I've picked Models Own HyperGel Polish in White Light, which is a pure snow white shade. It takes two coats to be opaque, but stays on really well and looks gorgeous against a tan.

Lilac is such a classic Spring shade, so I've went for Essie Lilacism which is my favourite light purple. It's so, so pretty and isn't too pale of a shade so it has a bit more to it (if you get me). It always applies perfectly and lasts a long time too, worth a look if you're after a new lilac!

For pink, I opted for an all time favourite of mine which is Topshop Nail Polish in Ethereal. I've talked about this before, so won't say too much, but it's a beautiful off white-pink tone. It's definitely a good two coats, but it's the most pretty shade on the nails. It looks quite refined without looking overly girly, I think!

Finally, another classic I talk about a lot on this blog: Nails Inc Gel Polish in Porchester Square. The perfect hybrid between lilac, grey yet it works as a great neutral tone. I'll won't say too much about it, but I urge you to buy it if you haven't already!

Don't forget you can win the rose gold GHD styler and hairdryer in my latest giveaway!
