My June favourites
Some all time favourites
It's all about the contour
A Benefit obsession
I don't know what it is, but even when its beautifully warm out and the suns shining, I still find myself reaching into my wardrobe and choosing black! I think I need to venture into the colour spectrum a little deeper.
Ok I have to admit, I actually chose my wardrobe to go with my brand new sunglasses from GlassesShop.com. I fell in love with these when I was having a browse on their website. I just loved the black frame with the gold detailing and I am such a fan of the wayfarer frame, I just find for the shape of my face, that these suit me so much better. GlassesShop.com have so many different styles of frames, so there is literally something for everyone and not only are the prices of glasses so affordable, come in many different sizes, shapes and colours, they also offer prescription sunglasses too! You just simply enter your prescription on the website for your chosen frames, and order. It takes the glasses about 2 week to arrive and they are such great quality for the price.They come in a branded case with a lens cloth too as standard and I find the fit from ear to face is really comfortable and not too loose, they also sit snug on the bridge of my nose and don't dig in either.
They also have this nifty little feature on their website where once you have selected a pair of glasses, you can use their tryon feature which allows you to upload a photo of yourself and see how the frames would look on your face. I found this tool super useful when I was deciding on the pair I wanted.

It has been so long since I purchased anything from ASOS, and after browsing through their site a couple of days ago, I thought I would show you all a few beautiful pieces that I came across and really want to add to my summer wardrobe.
I have always had a love for blazers, that, mixed with my grey obsession currently meant that when I found this beautiful double grey breasted blazer I knew I had to add it to my favourites for a future purchase. There is something just so casual chic about a blazer, and no matter what you are wearing, once you throw a blazer over the top, it instantly gives your outfit a facelift. Going a little out of my comfort zone, I fell in love with this Prea graphic print blazer! it is so funky and I just think whether its a little black dress, or a pair of jeans this blazer is a real statement piece!
You just can't beat white when it comes to summer, and nothing says pretty like cut out detail. I instantly fell in love with these two dresses when I seen them, they are perfect pieces for garden parties and afternoon tea in a quant little coffee shop. I love the detailing on the right one, with the laser cut detail, and zigzag round the neck and waste, I just think it synchs you in and gives a little more shape. If you are brave enough to wear white, I am still contemplating whether having a retriever and being near cocktails would be a good idea, then these two would really make a statement.
How festivalesque are these!? Not even sure thats a real word, but these two pieces are just amazing! The co-ord is the perfect summer assemble, easy to throw on and with a pair of tan sandals, this would look super cute, and just add a floral headband and gold arm tatts to really give it that festival style! How easy to wear is this slip on dress? I fell in love with the off the shoulder detailing and the cut out up the arms. It just looks super cute and lightweight and would a perfect dress to throw on over a bikini on your holidays.
These are just a sample of some of the beautiful pieces that ASOS have on their site. I could literally spend hours and hours browsing and adding to my basket, but thought I would give you an insight to 6 of my most favourite pieces. Let me know in the comments below which pieces you are liking the most!
There is nothing more that I love than taking strolls in the countryside with my partner and my golden girl. Nature has always been something I have really enjoyed and to be able to combine it with beauty and fashion has just made it that much more enjoyable.
I just love finding new places to explore. Having lived in Manchester for most of my childhood, when I had to opportunity to move to Yorkshire when I went to University, I was super excited about it. I have always been a fan of nature and wildlife, and this move would bring me closer to it. Having lived here now for 5 years, I have no intention of going back to Manchester. I love the fresh air, hills and greenery, and I love nothing more than putting on some casuals and going exploring.

Espedrilles - UGG Australia
Bracelet - Pandora
I have literally never worn a pair of comfier flats in my life! Not only are these beautiful Ugg Espadrilles the cutest looking pair of shoes ever, they are the perfect colour and style to go with dresses, skirts, shorts and jeans, I have literally lived in these the past few month. They are that classic sheepskin material, with a stitched, wicker looking rim around the sole and a pinched stitched style round the toe area. The cute little beaded detail just adds to the style and the stitch-work and branding on the back really pull the shoe together. The inside has the classic fur at the back so the shoes don't rub and have such a spongy inner which makes them super comfortable.
I have been playing around with some new products recently, and really trying be a little more diverse when it comes to beauty products. I have this tendency to go back to foundations time and time again, and mascaras too! so I decided to try something new and I am such a fan.
