Dress – ASOS|Hat – H&M|Shoes – Primark.

I wore this outfit for a casual dinner with my parents. I found this smock dress on the ASOS sale and just had to have it. When it arrived it looked like a huge tent but I love how loose fitting it is. I wanted to keep the outfit simple as the leaping tigers are the main focus so just added a straw black boater from H&M because well why not and these cute little Primark buckle shoes.

Did you find any bargain in the ASOS sale?

Sea Punk – Bleach London

P1150660P1150664

So as you might all know I got some ombre done on my hair, giving me the freedom to put some colour into the ends. I had heard a lot about Bleach London and I love their tumblr so went and picked up Sea Punk from my local Boots. After washing my hair and towel drying it I applied the dye to the ends of my hair, it smells divine; very tropical which was a nice change from the usual chemical smell of hair dyes. You leave it on for 15 minutes (I left mine on for a little longer) before washing it out without shampoo.

This was the end result. It’s not as green as I would have liked but it does add a lovely tint to my hair, so if you are looking for a slight hue to your hair then this would be perfect for you. One bottle for dip dye will do about two dyes (three if you have shorter hair) so you can top it up whenever needed. I will definitely be purchasing more Bleach London products so I can see if other products come up brighter!

Elegant Touch Nails in All Sorts£7.10

I am not normally a false nail girl at all but during a browse of Superdrug these popped out at me and I picked them up. First of all these are not great if you have small fingers like I do. There where some nails that would have fitted my big toe but thats about it; so finding ones that fitted my nails was quite a challenge. Once I had sorted that out they were really easy to apply. They come with sticky pads instead of the old school glue ones so you just put the pad onto your own nail and then press the false nail over the top.

They look really pretty and add a little something to an outfit but these are supposed to last for a week and most of the nails had already dropped off by the end of the night. So if you are looking for a one night nail wonder then this is for you but if you want something a bit more permeant I would go for a shellac.

Cute But Pyscho|OOTD

I recently had a girlie night out, we took a river cruise and had a chilled bottle of wine whilst we travelled upstream instead of sweltering on a bus before chowing down on some of the best steak ever at CAUI didn’t blog about it this time but I will soon, promise. Then it was cocktail time.I wanted an outfit that was cool and comfortable in the hot weather but still suited all the different locations. The skirt is quite a dressy piece so I dressed it down with a loose t-shirt this one has the phrase ‘Cute but Pyscho’ on the pocket. I opted for flats because heat and heels is sometimes just too much; I am not normally one for false nails but these caught my eye at Superdrug and I couldn’t resist picking them up.

Top 5 High Street Blushers

P1150606

17  Sugar Plum|Rimmel Live Pink|S&G Onamatopecha|Topshop Head Over Heels|Rimmel Santa Rose.

I feel naked without blush- yes I know that’s a silly statement but it’s true; so here are my top 5 favourite high street blushers.

Starting with an old favourite 17 blusher in Sugar Plum. If you have been a frequent reader of my Blog or watcher of my YouTube you will have seen me use this hundred of time, it’s a gorgeous sugar pink which instantly brings life to your cheeks without being too in your face. On the other hand if you want something a bit more bright on your cheeks then the Rimmel blusher in Live Pink is a great blusher for perking up the cheeks.

In terms of cream blush Topshop blush in Head Over Heels is a gorgeous peachy orange. These blend really nicely and are highly pigmented so don’t be too heavy handed with the application. For a more subtle blush the Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Blusher in Onamatopecha is perfect. It comes in stick form and is perfect for on the go application. If you prefer subtle blushers then Rimmel blusher in Santa Rose is perfect it has a slight shimmer to it and looks great with a tan.

What are your favourite blushers?

The Natural History Museum is literally one of my favourite places to visit its free and there is so much to see; also the architecture inside is just gorgeous. I only just noticed that there are carved monkeys on the arches.

Some suggestions of what to do at the Natural History Museum; The Spirit Collection is a free behind the scenes tour where you can see all the specimens they have in their archives including a giant squid called Archie, or you can travel through the centre of the earth and experience an earthquake in the red zone, or do both of these and be big kids all over again.

After viewing weird things in jars and being an explorer of the earths crust grab something yummy for lunch. I like Le Pain  Quotidien which is two minutes from Natural History, the coffee is to die for and the food is amazing. Pictured above is the chicken club well worth a try.

If you’re not bored of your friends company invite them back to yours grab some Pimms (or beverage of choice) some chip and dip and wait whilst dinner cooks. A and I made sweet chill chicken with salad and coleslaw.

What are your ways of beating the monday blues?
