Outfit: Topshop Lace Up Crop

I'm in love with this simple lace up Topshop top, it's my ode to the seventies trend which I can't say I've got overly involved in. I'm gradually coming round to it. It's so cheap and comes in a load of colours so I think I'll hit up the grey and white versions too. I actually queued at the till with the burnt orange version but scared, ran back and picked up the black. 

So I cleared out my room at the weekend and rekindled my love for these Asos Brady boyfriend jeans. I don't know how they had got lost but I'm glad we've been reconnected as I love 'em! They're also currently on sale for £22!

Outfit: Warehouse Striped Trousers

Sooo these trousers are my new favourite thing. They're supposed to be 'cropped' but they're practically full length on my shorty legs. I love the fit and cut though, perfect for this unpredictable crappy summer we're currently having! I wore them for my usual weekend mooch around Cambridge and the elasticated waist was perfect for my post-nandos stomach muahaha. 

It's payday weekend, hoorah! After a painful 5 week month I treated myself to a few new bits both for my holiday and general use so I'll probably feature them on here soon. I'm off to recover from my massive lunch with a few films, enjoy your weekend girls!

Beauty: What's In My Makeup Bag

So I think the last time I wrote a post similar to this was back in 2012, so I thought it was time for an update! Plus I just bought the super cute cacti makeup bag, and needed an excuse to show it off so there you go...

I tend to try out lots of different products for both skincare and makeup but there are some that I will stick with if I find it really works for me. The Chanel perfection lumiere velvet foundation is always a repeat buy, it's expensive but a great colour match for my skin (I take Beige 20). The Laura Mercier radiance primer I will definitely buy again too, it's the first Laura Mercier product I've tried and helps with an even coverage and makes my foundation last a lot longer.

I've recently got into highlighters, one that I found that's relatively cheap is the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus illuminating highlighter. I use it on my cheekbones and it gives a really nice subtle glow, I'd definitely recommend it!  

I haven't featured my complete current range of skincare products but I thought I would include a couple that I'm really loving at mo. Firstly the Nip + Fab Glycolic fix. They're little exfoliating pads that I use after I've cleansed before bedtime. They make my skin feel much cleaner and scrape away any dirt leftover on your skin. I've also been trying out a new day cream from & Other Stories. To be honest I wasn't expecting great things as it's predominantly a clothing shop and not a skincare specialist. I've been pleasantly surprised though, it feels like velvet and my skin appears to be loving it!

If you have any questions about any of the products I use feel free to drop me a comment!

Fashion: July Wishlist

Is it Autumn yet? Lol jk. But really, if summer is going to behave like this then I'm SO over it. I'm not a massive fan of summer clothing and I'm not massively into the 70s trend which has dominated pretty much everything. So I'm kinda ready for the new season offerings. I actually really love Autumn, I would even say it's probably my favourite season. Anyway let's track back as it's only July and I'm jumping the gun a bit here.

A few favourites I've got my peepers on at the moment, although it sucks as I'm being super careful with money (aside from my new bag oops) as I've got to save my spending moola for America! A girl can dream though, so here we go...

So I definitely don't need a new designer bag just yet but I would like to add a mini Pashli to my wardrobe. I haven't stopped wearing my medium Pashli tote, I just love the design, so you know another wouldn't go a miss. I'll remember to buy that lottery ticket this week...

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to get into denim culottes. I'm a big culottes fan just hadn't dipped my toe in the denim arena. I've got these Topshop babes on the way so I'm hoping they will fit and my love affair with the culotte will continue to blossom.

As you can see, kinda liking wrap blouses right now. I realised that I really lack in the tops department of my wardrobe, as I always lean towards jackets so it's an area that needs work. Also loving the Atterley denim dress, I might buy it in time for my hols as it will be an easy throw on piece. Speaking of which definitely need the Whistles bag for my travels! Except I don't I just really freakin' want it. 

Whats on your wishlist at the mo?
