Life At The Moment #57

Hello lovelies, how are you all?
I'm super excited, look what came in the post! This beautiful kimono from New Look. I've been wearing it to death (weather permitting..) it's so easy to style & looks effortless with a pair of jeans & boots.
About two weeks ago, I helped my best friend & boyfriend move into their flat. It's such a stunning place, in the most perfect location. Looking out onto the cricket field, 64 steps to the pub from the front door, (yes we counted!) & she's still only 15minutes drive down the road from me. : ) Of course, once we'd done all the unpacking.. it was straight to the pub for a burger & chips!
I had a rare day off last week & thought I'd relive my childhood & watch Peter Pan. I used to love this film, there's actually some amazing quotes in it which I'd forgotten about. It was pouring with rain, so myself & Honey snuggled up on the sofa with a cup of tea.
The girls & I had a evening in last week (+ some of the boys!) We baked the most amazing cake.. diet starts next week.. I promise..
Finally, James came home from uni for the Summer! Yayyyy. I've mostly been at work since he's been back but we managed to squeeze in a small trip to Café Nero before heading to Chichester for his Mum's birthday last Saturday. I'd been saving this beautiful dress for a special occasion & it was perfect & got so many compliments. : )
How has your week been so far?

Barry M Hi Shine Lips

Hello lovelies,
Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the amazing creation of the Gelly range Barry M have introduced. When I firstly tried their nail polishes, I thought nothing could beat them.. till I discovered the lip range!
The formula is perfect for my lips. I'm not a matte lipstick kinda girl, so a glossy finish is ideal for me. My lips need to be constantly moisturised as I suffer from dry lips all year round & these just seem to work. They also come in the most beautiful shades. These are the two I picked up:
When I'm feeling brave, nothing beats a beautifully pigmented pink. This one is extremely bright, but perfect for Spring / Summer evenings in the pub garden.
& a classic red. This one is perfect for every day wear.
Have you tried any of these lip crayons? What did you think?

Life At The Moment #56

Hello lovelies, how are you all?
About two weeks ago, I headed up to Gloucester for the last time this 'uni year'. I can't believe James will be home for the Summer & finished his first year at the end of this month.. crazy how fast but how equally slow, uni has gone for us. We decided to go for a picnic on my last day there, the view from Birdlip is so beautiful.
I finally got my hands on some running shoes! I've started jogging regularly with Harvey, trying to get fit for Summer! I'm also taking part in the Race For Life in June with my ladies from work & I want to be able to jog a bit of the way at least.
We celebrated Madz' 21st at the end of April with a western themed party! I went as a cowgirl & Cathy went as a saloon girl. Look at those eyelashes.. ; D
I've seriously been living in these trousers from Forever 21. Did you see my outfit post from last week? I won't go on about them again, but if you want to check them out you can here. : )
Finally, myself & Honey went to visit my grandparents today. If we walk, we end up going across the fields through the countryside, visiting all the animals on the way. Honey loves the long grass & pouncing on butterflies!
How have you all been? : )

Next Paradise & Just Pink

Hello lovelies,
Is it just me, or do you feel the need to splurge out on a new perfume the moment the sun comes out? I'd usually buy a floral, light scent regardless of the time of year, but Spring just screams at me to go & buy the girliest, pinkest perfume I can find! Please tell me it isn't just me..
On a recent shopping trip I found these two diamonds. I had a Next gift card left over from Christmas, so I couldn't resist.

Just Pink & Paradise

Just Pink - "A fresh green floral fragrance with soft fruits & pink blooms."
Paradise - "A light fruity fragrance with white florals & green notes."
Both of these are Eau De Parfum's & are 30ml.
They're both quite similar scents (I'm rubbish at describing them I'm afraid!) but if you like fruity, light perfumes, these are the ones for you.
Have you tried any of the Next Perfumes? : )

OOTD - Dandelion Dream


Blazer & top - Primark / Trousers - Forever 21 / Boots - New Look / Bracelet - Amazon / Necklace - Accessorize / Nails - Models Own Hyper Gel - Searing Pink
Hello lovelies!
It's really beginning to feel like Spring now isn't it? Myself & James decided to go for a pub lunch the other day & despite the occasional gust of wind, it was actually quite warm.
I decided to wear my new trousers from Forever 21, which I'm in love with! The print is just too adorable & they are so comfy & easy to style. I paired them with this blazer which I found hiding at the back of my wardrobe & my trusty New Look boots. (Yes, this is Britian.. despite glorious sunshine.. it's never that warm!)
How are you all? : )
