Pumpkin Head

So its been quite a while since my last post, I shall admit it now, i'm lazy. But I would have posted last night if it wasn't for my head turning into what my mother called "a pumpkin head". I've got a virus which is now causing me to have an allergic reaction to my own body. Or something along those lines; Lovely. Moving on; I spent the weekend at my friends house, and whilst i'm normally not one for wearing trousers - i have extremely short legs- I did like the Harem pants she bought. So i put an outfit together for her and took some pictures for you all. Don't say i never give you anything.....

I like the baggy style of the trousers and ideally i would team them up with a leotard, but i like the relaxed feel this baggy vest gives the look too. I kept the colors neutral with baby pinks and nudes to avoid making the outfit too work orientated. 

The small hints of gold in the jewelery tie everything together. None of the accessories were bought as matching items, which just shows how you can use anything for this look. I used the accessories to dress up this look as it could be too plain without them. 

My friend is also going on a cruise this summer, and kindly modeled these gorgeous photos for me. These dresses are easy to wear; light and cool; and will be so in this summer. Again, like all outfits, the key is the accessories. But you could wear these outfits ANYWHERE. 

This dress is from Top Shop and also comes in Lilac. Its £45; and whilst it may seem expensive; its so worth it! 

I love this maxi dress from New Look; there is also a similar one in Republic in a salmon colour.
They're going really cheap at the moment ranging from £25 to £30. 
This is a must buy! :)

Thats all for now, Gotta go get some more Piriton.

Mothers know best

OK, so Christmas seems like a while ago now, but i'm still in love with my presents :) My mom got me a Liz Earle set for teenagers, its basically loads of posh face washes and stuff. But they seriously work! They don't test on animals and all the ingredients are natural and organic. They try not to use preservatives but if they need to, they are natural and not very strong. This means that its suitable for all types of skin, and you know whats going on to your skin. Unlike most organic products, they smell gorgeous, not musty and disgusting! If i have a break out, it is usually gone after 3 days of using this products. I need to warn you, they're expensive! But even the test pots last for ages! In the teenage gift set, you get a cleanser, a toner, a moisturizer, a blemish stick and a muslin cloth, they all come in a cute little toiletries bag and whilst its probably not big enough for some beauty addicts, its perfect to fit your Liz Earle products in. I seriously recommend getting these products, you can find them HERE.
I know for many £23.00 really is pushing it price wise, and the bottles are very small, but it really is worth trying. So i think its time to beg the parents! :) What do you have to lose? If you do buy it, let me know how you get on :)
