A Cool Summers Day | Jack Wills


Since the last time I came on here and wrote the UK has had a crazy heat wave, its been the hottest its been for 40 year! So I was in need of summer dresses, I had a look around on Topshop and Asos my normal shopping go to places but nothing was grabbing me. I wanted a dress that I know that I could wear all summer, that would wash well and keep on looking great. I also wanted a style that wouldn't go off trend and a style that I could dress up on colder days like today.

That lend me to the Jack Wills website, I use to shop there so much when I was younger and I remembered the wonderful quality of the clothes, (I still have and wear hoodies form my high school days!). They have a huge amount of striped items, I literally want them all! I feel like a striped top/dress is a wardrobe essential that will see you through every season so its worth investing in a slightly better quality version so you know it will last. I have linked my all my favourite items from Jack Wills below, most of which are now in the sale!

Bonus Outfit... 
Thought I would include a few phone snaps of me wearing this dress as a simple beach outfit...

Where Have I Been? | OOTD

It's been 2 weeks and I have managed to get behind on my blog again, the sun comes out and I just cant help wanting to spend all of my spare time sown the beach.

I consider my self to be extremely fortunate, living only a 10 minute walk to this beautiful location. I cant help but want to spend all my time there and can you blame me. 

Another reason I have been MIA has been because of my silver smithing, to my surprise the pieces I make actually sell. Which has been a huge confidence boost and made me think seriously about doing it properly and setting up a little online shop. I still love blogging but it has taken a back seat right now, there will still be regular posts (hopefully 1 a week) and I have loads of content coming your way for the rest of the month, exciting collaborations, brand reviews and a post about the new Etsy shop that I am launching.

5 May Favourites | Life

Last month I wrote one of these and it went down really well. I thought why not do the same again and share my favourites from the month of May. So keep reading if you want to see what I have been loving...

A book recommendation, My Beautiful Struggle by Jordan Bone. (This is quite unlike me but one of my new year resolutions was to read more and I am managing about 2 books a month at the moment which is pretty good going for me!) This has been one of the first reads that I haven't been able to put down, I find Jordan's story so heart breaking but also really empowering. It's about Jordan Bone a beauty blogger who at the age of 15 was in a car accident which left her paralysed from the chest down, its a story of how she rebuilt her life with the help of make up. That little synopsis doesn't do it justice so I'll leave a link where you can read a proper one.

Number 2 is my make up category. The new product in my life that I cant live with out is this Fleur de Force x Eylure Brow Tamer. I was sent the new range of brow products by Fleur as a PR gift and while the rest are great the Brow Tamer really stood out. It keeps my (quite wild) brows in place all day but doesn't leave them with that crunchy texture which I have found with a lot of drug store brow products. I cant really say much else other than its just a great product that dose what it says on the tin!

A life style favourite for May has been water colouring. It sounds silly but I hadn't sat down and painted in so long its like I forgot that I had the skill, I was pretty surprised when they turned out half decent. (None of which are finished and all of them are Alexander McQueen inspired). I find taking time away from social media and technology to be such a breath of fresh air and just sit for an hour or so and focus on something completely different from my day to day. I feel like it dose me the world of good and its something that me and Richard enjoy doing together.

 So a trend that I have fallen in love with has been the slogan T-shirt trend, I have barley taken off the Merci Topshop tee (the one every blogger and there mum have) and when I haven't been wearing it I have been grabbing this cute one from H&M which is currently in the sale of £7! (I couldn't find it on line but here is a similar one)

Shoes of the month have been these £3 Primark loafers that are pretty much ready for the bin. So I'm kinda pissed that they need to be chucked but the were only £3 so I cant complain to bad, I'm just salty because it will be hard to find another pair. I just love the way these add a smart feel to any outfit and also how good they look with blue jeans. I think I am just going to invest in so higher quality loafers in a similar colour. If any one knows where I can find some link me below.

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what you thought by leaving me a comment. And also if you think you have discovered any amazing products this month that you think I should try let me know below.
