I'm wishing on a star

Topshop Denim Jacket, Topshop Rose Leigh Jeans, Topshop Floral Shorts, Topshop Cross Body Bag, River Island Wedge Hi-Tops

*Excuse the Topshop overload!*
Just a quick post to show what I've been lusting after lately. I have an old New Look denim jacket from when I worked there 2 years ago but it's way too pale for my liking and very much all one colour. This one from Topshop is only slightly different but the perfect shade!
I've wanted pink jeans for so long and each time I've come close to getting them I've chickened out. After wearing my new orange ombre jeans (outfit post coming soon!) out proudly I'm definitely ready for pink. They go with so much too!
Me and my boyfriend are very close to booking our holiday to Tunisia in September and I'm already eyeing up holiday clothes. These would look so cute with an oversized pink vest and gladiator sandals! (and possibly this cross body bag?)
I LOVE these trainers so much. The amount of times I've tried these on this week to torture myself (payday is a long 10 days away!) is getting a little bit ridiculous. They have an invisible wedge built in to give the same leg lengthening illusion as heels without the blisters, perfection <3

Hope you've all had a lovely sunny weekend!

We don't barely keep in touch no more

Forever21 Blazer (similar to this), Bank Dress

Sorry it's been a while. My posts are so unstructured lately, I tend to just whack one out when I have the time which I'm not getting a lot of at the moment. I work 14 hour days half the week and then the days I'm off I'm trying to cram in seeing my friends and family and get general things around the house done. So stressful, and I still live at home!

The weather has been so nice these past few days! I used to get so upset about finding things to wear in summer because I was very self concious but in all honesty I really couldnt care less this year! Life is short and one day I'm going to be a wrinkly old lady wishing I still looked the way I do now so I may as well embrace being young :)

I've had this dress a while now and mentioned it a few times. I really don't know if it suits me or not. I've paired it with my new blazer that my boyfriend treated me to at the weekend but it still dosent seem quite right as an outfit. I never wear high necklines or sleeveless blouse type tops so it's a bit out of my comfort zone, but I just love the colour and the fit of the skirt! Let me know what you think!

Hope you're all enjoying this glorious weather!

Pretty Quik Instant Nail Polish Remover

After trying to hunt down the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover for weeks I stumbled across this in Superdrug for half the price! I'm not a fan of the packaging but it is basicly the exact same product only cheaper, the rational side of my brain couldn't justify spending £4.99 on nail polish remover! I'm so pleased with this product as it's so practical and mess free! My nails feel naked without any polish so normally the first thing I will do after I get home from work (I'm a healthcare assistant, so no nail varnish on shift!) when I have a few days off. I often forget to take my nail polish off before coming back into work and have to run around the building looking for remover but having this in my bag takes all that hassle away. You simply put your finger in the sponge, twist and voila! It also leaves my nails feeling nice and nourished and the scent isn't too overpowering like other removers I've tried. Definatly on my list of favourite products and something I'll happily repurchase again, though I'm sure it will work just as well if you top up the pot with cheap nail varnish remover!

Pretty Quik Instant Nail Polish Remover is available at Boots and Superdrug and priced at £2.50 for 30mls.

If Only For Tonight

 Topshop Blazer (old stock), Primark Dress, New Look Clutch

Just a quick post to show what I wore out on Saturday night. Me and some old friends from school went into Kettering for some drinks which was lovely because I haven't seen them in so long! We're all doing very different things with our lives now so its nice to catch up. This was also the first time I've EVER left the house wearing a short skirt and no tights! Proud of myself for that one and I'll definatly do it again! I had planned to wear this dress that I got a few weeks ago in Cambridge but when I couldn't get anything to go with it (I was thinking possibly a white blazer?) I had a mad dash around Primark and spotted this bargain for £6. I've been looking for a nice black dress that's good for lazy summer days and that you can dress up for going out in for a while now and this one fits the bill. The bag is my favourite item I've bought this month, I have so few bags right now and tend to just stick with one grey one that goes with everything. It's so spacious and I love the flash of yellow!

Hope you all had a fabulous bank holiday weekend!
