Sunday Summary #11

Its almost Christmas!!!!! Soooo excited!

Work has finally finished and I am officially in Christmas mode! All my shopping is done - even got myself a few gifts. 



Today I went to the Montcalm hotel for a spa and afternoon tea day! It was so lovely and relaxing with my best friend! The staff are friendly and I would really recommend it. 


We then headed over to Covent garden and had some warm cider whilst browsing the shops and watching some street performers. 


Perfect day!!!

Hipanema - Hot new arm candy alert!


My new found love for arm candy can be found over at Hipanema! I have already bought two, which is no where near as many as I would like but when if carries a heavy pricey tag - it'll have to do for now.

They come in 3 sizes - depending on how many layers your wrist can handle. The colours are gorgeous and will want you wanting more and more! Initially I got them for Holiday but I never take them off. They have already appeared on my Santa list this year :)

ISWAI.COM is the way to go!

ISWAI - it starts with an idea...

So I found this site a while back but kept meaning to actually write a post on it. As you may or may not know - it's a fashion brand founded by Caggie Dunlop from Made in Chelsea. What's refreshing about this is that Caggie helps people catch a break! Instead of just putting her name on a brand - she is actually finding fresh new designers and giving them a stepping stone!

With high street price tags - it really is worth checking out and getting a few pieces! The beauty if the site is that it's not your average high street clothes - the designs are more individual and not something you see everyday.


To make it just that bit more exciting- they do jewellery and bags! As you may tell from previous posts - I am a big jewellery fan. ISWAN has my perfect taste - turquoise stones and silver bohemian style necklaces! Plus as I love Caggies style - you know your shopping at the place.



Overall I think there are some great must have pieces - if your trying to be good... Why not send a subtle hint for a Christmas stocking filler 😉 I know I will be.

I'M BACK... Sunday Summary #10

WOW... Its been a while!! 

Its been over a year since my last post - I guess I found it quite difficult to fit time in to blog with everything that was going on. I really enjoy blogging and now I have a new job, I am going to make time to fit it in :-)

So I promise there will be more lifestyle and outfit posts coming soon....

So I thought what better way to welcome myself back to my blog is a Sunday Summary (of the week... Not the year)

Roast Dinner | Paper Chase Glasses | Primark Socks | Barking in Essex

Friday I went to the Wyndham's Theatre to see 'Barking in Essex' with Lee Evans and Sheila Hancock. It was HILARIOUS... I would highly recommend  seeing it whilst the original cast are still in it!

As winter is pretty much here, that means one thing... CHRISTMAS!! I LOVE Christmas. I got some Primark socks for like £2 with Father Christmas on - I actually adore wearing these even though I get a lot of stick at home. The Glasses I am wearing were from Paperchase - I put them on for a laugh when shopping and actually really regret not buying them!

KUKEE - My New Love



As I write this, I can promise you I am ashamed that I have left it so long since my last post! The weeks are just flying by and being so busy at work, its hard to squeeze everything in.
I can assure you though that even though I may have not blogged in a while, my sending has been increasing.

So, I thought I would share with you what I got from KUKEE. I found this site by the ever famous Twitter and instantly made a purchase. I really do LOVE this site not only for the great individual pieces, but the fact they also add new items quite often.... So I am always logging in and checking out the new trends. Even now I am looking through the site and getting frustrated that I cannot buy everything!

Make sure you all go check it out!

Style Outside The Box

Style Outside the Box 
Styleoutside the box is not like all the other fashion boutique websites. Unlike most sites that feature the same old trends you see out on the high street, Style outside the Box offer something diverse and unique.
Created in the city that captures all of our hearts – New York, Laura, the founder of Style Outside the Box, became captivated by the talent and energy shown by these designers, and decided it was time to share their one of a kind products with the world.
The website is solely for exclusive independent designers who stand behind every one-of-a-kind product made and sold, each selected by the style Outside the Box’s council juries. Knowing that the products featured are not mass produced, it offers a more personal shopping experience knowing most products are made to order.

My Top 4 Brands 

1. Brace Yourself

BraceYourself was created by Jen Ahdou in 2011. Based in LA, Jen is a designer who’s pieces consist of semi precious stones and champagne diamond bracelets with leather cord or gold chain bands. Brace Yourself aimed to create simple timeless pieces that are wearable on all occasions, and in my opinion, they have got it spot on! My favourite piece is the bracelets below. All the colours are eye catching enough to make a statement and would not look out of place if I was dressed up going to a wedding or if I was just hanging out on the beach in a bikini. 


 2. Collart

Collart was founded by Shuchita Manchanda in 2002 in India. Shuchita has created an exquisite range of beautiful and colourful hand-painted, handmade scarves. As each product is handmade, each one sold will have its own uniqueness which is what I love most. The $99 price tag is justified by using the most luxurious fabrics like cashmere, pashmina , merino and angora wool, not forgetting that luxury feeling of knowing that the scarf was handmade especially for you, giving it that more personal connection compared to a cheap scarf that had been mass produced and was hanging around everyone’s neck! A Collart scarf will give your outfit that extra bit of excitement and will definitely catch a few wondering eyes.

 

 3. Briwok

Briwok was inspired in memory of Brianne Toth, whom began making feather earrings from pheasants that her good friend hunted. When Brianne passed away tragically in 2009, her best friend finally found a way to keep her close and to keep her name and stories from fading away. The jewelry created is inspired by and a tribute to a beautiful, unique soul who passed away all too soon. These pieces really do have a personal feel to them. They remind me of a ‘Hippy’ style, connecting to the free spirit vibe Briwok was perhaps going for. They are subtle statement pieces that all seem to relate earth and nature, showing a story behind it.


 

 4. The Odyssey

We have all been there… trying to pack our suitcase and not knowing where to start! Enter Anh Stovall, founder of The odyssey. Her idea of wanting to upgrade from the typical multi-purpose plastic bag to something a little more eco-friendly and with a little more feminine charm. Anh has created modern designs for 18 luxury travel bags executed in high-quality, old-world charm & embroidery. They are a great addition to any suitcase and will make the perfect gift for the right lady! I can imagine these being in high demand this summer!

Sunday Summary # 9

Birthday fever is continuing throughout July. As mentioned last weekend it was my sister and boyfriends birthday. this weekend was a belated birthday night out as my sister was a little under the weather last week. 
Also this weekend I have found the new two loves of my lift - NARS liquid and powder foundation!

Saturday
My outfit was inspired by the much loved blogger LLYMLRS after seeing it on one of her outfit posts and instantly loved - Plus it had gone into the sale, so double plus!


Dress - ASOS - Ankle Boots - TOPSHOP

I popped into Liberty finally as a few of my followers on twitter recommend I tried NARS make up, knowing how much I struggle with my fair skin to find the perfect match. I must admit I was going in rather closed minded as I thought 'Hmmm, bet it will all still be too orange on me' but I couldn't be more wrong!! The LIGHT1 SIBERIA is AMAZING!!!! As you know, I am not a huge beauty lover like a lot of blogs, but this most certainly needed to feature.

I went for the Sheer Glow Liquid foundation and the powder foundation both amazing products. The Sheer Glow foundation is very watery based and perfect if you have normal to dry skin. I was tempted by the Sheer Matt, but after speaking with the consultant, she advised it was for more oily skins. The colour is an EXACT match for my skin tone and does not leave those dreaded orange tone lines around my face.


I have included some pics on the night out, but I know you cannot actually see the make up - I forgot my cam :-( 





Sunday
I just literally laid in bed recovering from the night before and watched the Tennis. I really would have loved for Murray to win as it would have been an epic celebration but lets face it - Ferderer is a true ledge and gent. Role on the Olympic Tennis now I say. (Trying to get myself excited for the Olympics but still dreading my journeys to work every morning)




Once I dragged myself out of bed, I went to go see Spider man! I loved everything about it and deffo best film I have seen since The Avengers!
