TMI tag | August 2014

Since my little blog is still fairly new I thought it might be nice for anyone reading to know a bit more about me! I love watching YouTuber's doing things like the TMI tag, so here is my blog version; and it's easier than trying to generate interesting facts about myself! So if you would like to read a little 'too much information' on yours truly, then proceed ...
(Featuring my new ombré hair, ooo, what do you think?? Blog post coming soon.)

OOTD | At the Beach | 22nd July

Topshop Dress | Urban Outfitters Batwing Cardigain | Topshop Studded Bag
Black Birkenstock Arizona Sandals | Trollbeads Bracelet | Barry M Nail Polish in Peach Melba
This week I went with my boyfriend up to Newcastle to visit his family for a few days. We had lot's of fun running around with his cousins, who are 5, and being plied with biscuits and cake by his Grandma! The weather was beautiful and we managed to fit in a lovely day at Tynemouth beach.
I managed to quickly snap my accessories while relaxing in the shade and then layed out the ensemble when I got back. I am SO in love with this new Urban Outfitters cardi! I've wanted it for so long and finally nabbed it on eBay. It's perfect for the summer when the breeze gets up or for those evenings when the sun's gone down. And I've never felt so girly or summery as when I've got Barry M's Peach Melba on my nails - it's my summer favourite!
As always I'd love to know what you think of this OOTD format, let me know in the comments your summer staples ...

OOTD | Studs & Stripes | 16th July

Topshop Striped Shirt | Topshop Jamie Jeans | Topshop Studded Bag
Black Birkenstock Arizona | Trollbeads Bracelet | Barry M Matte Polish in Copa Cobana
I've never claimed to by stylish by any degree, but I think I'm getting closer to discovering my own personal style. Today's ensemble is comfy and casual! I just received this Topshop shirt from Ebay today and, although it look's a little like I'm wearing a mens pajama top, I rather like it!
I don't think I'm one for taking a full body shot for an ootd, logistics and aesthetics wise. So this is my attempt through Instagram type photo's, they're so easy to snap!
Let me know what you think of this ootd style, I'd love to do some more.

The Body Shop Haul

I always used to love going into The Body Shop with my Mum when I was a kid. I used to run around smelling all the different soaps and bottles. It's taken till now for me to really shop for myself in their beautiful, heavenly, fruit bowl scented, wonderland of a shop!
This pay day I decided to go and treat myself to some things ...

Salted Caramel Shortbread Bites

Oh good grief! These little bites are ridiculously delicious and even more ridiculously easy to make! I used an adjusted Millionaires shortbread recipe but instead of chocolate, I sprinkled with sea salt. I can't believe how good the caramel tastes with the added sea salt. It's a beautiful combination. They are extremely moreish and addictively yummy! Bake at own risk ...

What's In My Bag: Mini Summer Essentials

I do love getting a look into other peoples bags. Seeing what they love to carry around in their day to day basis. I'm a nosy lass in essence! So I thought it would be fun to share what can be found in my current favourite bag ...

Topshop Makeup: Highlighter & Cream Blush

Topshop has been my favourite high street store since I was about 13! I won't buy jeans from anywhere else, and probably 90% of the clothes in my wardrobe when you look in the back feature the familiar black Topshop label. Yet, I've not yet tried anything from their make up range. A horrible confession for a self confessed Topshop addict! Immediate rectification required ...
