Back from The Show

Here are several photos I snapped at The Show: A Dolls House at the weekend. There were some lovely outfits and several pieces I will be looking out for.

After the show Matt and I headed into the VIP area for prosecco, chocolates and goody bags and have been booked in for a personal shopping event in Forever 21 in a few weeks. I was also lucky enough to be offered a make-over by YSL which I am looking forward to soon!
Thanks Emma again for a great event!

Small but perfectly formed

What a weekend, I hope you all had fun! Matt and I headed up to a wedding in the Northwest and I had a whole outfit post planned with what I was wearing. All good until I realise I have forgotton to put the battery in my camera and we are now 150 miles away.... Hopefully I will have some photos my sister took to show you soon.

For now though here is my new favourite bag, a small leather pouch in the softest smooshiest (thats not I real word I know!) tan leather. It's small size is deceptive, it can easily hold my essentials, phone, camera, hairbrush, keys etc.

Revlon Blue Lagoon

Newest nail polish bought, Revlon's new Blue Lagoon. An icy pastel blue with the finest shimmer. I love the colour, this is with two coats. The shimmer is a little textured on the nail as with glitter polishes but is only noticeable very close up or to touch.

Bag essentials

I wish I could pretend my bag is this organised everyday but it took a clearout of screwed up receipts, five pens, three lipbalms, paying in slips (you get the idea) to get it ready to take pictures.

These are my hand bag essentials to carry around everyday.

Keys with big Sobral keyring- from Brazil, I love Sobral stuff. http://www.rsobral.com.br/eng/frameset.html

Aesop Resurrection handcream - a new find. It smells divine, sinks in perfectly, great for cuticles and feet.
Aesop Rosehip seed lip cream - as above, sinks in really well and a good base for gloss or lipstick.An Aussie brand using natural plant goodies. Love the London A-Z on the site too! http://www.aesop.net.au/site/news.html

Pirate mirror

Sephora pop out brush

Travel perfume minatures

Caudalie grape water facial spritz - Perfect to revive after a long morning in the office, great make-up refresher too.

Mentos gum

Memory stick


I usually carry my camera too and some hand gel but goodness knows where that has gone! What is your handbag essential?

Juicy gems

I'm already a bit tired of the colourblocking trend and I haven't even attempted it yet! I do however have a soft spot for the fruity prints that are slowly hitting the high street.
 
Here are a few i've found with a suggestion of how to wear them. My favourite I think is the oranges and lemons dress - I can imagine wearing this on a hot balmy night in the South of France or waking around an Italian city. What's your favourite?

A perfect sunday lunch

I hope you all had great weekends, mine was spent recovering from a 24 hour shift at Thursday nights elections, I have only just about caught up on my sleep now! We also went bowling with friends and played american pool which was a fun night.

These photos were from Sunday - Roasted meat, red wine and a comfy slouchy outfit.

The hat hides my hair which needs doing shortly, and apologies for my very tired eyes...
