April Favourites

Hey guys. Hope you have all had a lovely week and weekend. I thought I would mix my blog up a little by adding a mixed kind of post of my April faves! :) 
Starting with my new clothes...
My all time fave denim jacket from Topshop. 
Patterned trousers - Primark

I absolutely love my denim jacket! I have hardly took it off since I purchased it. Such good quality and great for this Spring weather!! I did a blog post specifically on this so you can take a look if you like. 

 I also got a few bits from Avon.
Starting with this floral bun holder, this is gorgeous for the coming seasons. 

Accessories;

Floral bun holder - Avon

Black bracelet with your own letters! Can swap and change to add your own text! - Avon

Close up shot of the bun holder
Faux hair pony tail also from Avon! - What a match, this is so soft and convenient for the days I fancy long hair haha!
Bandana - New Look


Set of three rings - Select


Sunflower hair clip - Asos! Love this so much for Summer, plus who doesn't like sunflowers?!

Make up;
Gel shine polish! This is ace! You put on the gel shine polish first, followed by the gel shine top coat. This lasts a few days before chipping and has a fab shine to it! Also comes in a variety of colours.




This Instaflawless by Rimmel London is great if you don't want to wear foundation! It is technically a skin tint and it comes in two shades (light/medium) or (medium/dark), it is rather moisturising and smells delicious! It blends into the skin smoothly (leaving it soft). However, I have noticed you only need a little bit as they say a little goes a long way! It gives the skin a glow and with SPF 15 this is a brilliant buy from only £6.99.

Love a bit of 90's denim

Hello there. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. :)

I had always wanted a vintage like oversized denim jacket. They are the perfect cover up for Spring and Summer and I feel that denim jackets can be worn in many different ways and can be dressed up or down. I had a look online before I went shopping for one and ended up buying the first one I seen from Topshop (MOTO range). The Topshop denim range is gorgeous, or should I say the whole range from Topshop is gorgeous. There were so many items of clothing which I wanted! Anyway, I went for a more lighter shade of denim and the sleeves can be worn either rolled up for the warmer days or rolled down for the colder ones. 











It is always tricky knowing what to wear with a denim jacket, do you dare the denim on denim look or go for something completely different. That is up to you. I feel personally, denim jackets look great with patterned or coloured trousers and I worn mine with some converse which I have had for a while now to give it a more edgy look. What do you wear your denim jacket with? I would love to hear.

Rimmel Super Gel review

Heyyy. Hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday!

Just a quick one guys... I told a few people I would do a review of the Rimmel Super Gel nail polish. (Which I totally love and my collection is growing.) This is a nail polish which can last up to 14 days and works like a gel polish with no UV lamp and is sealed with a top coat. 

I took a picture of my nails everyday for five days. I have been in London so tried to be creative taking pictures in the city of London. (I got some funny looks like haha). 


Day 1 - beautiful shine and no sign of chips

Day 2 - still looking really shiny, a slight chip on my index finger

Day 3 - no change from above pic 

Day 4 - thumb is starting to chip 

Day 5 - more chipping to thumb

I still have this on now and I am so impressed with the outcome. Slight chipping to a couple of nails after six days is amazing. It does only state it can last up to 14 days, so this is not guaranteed. However I am still really impressed with this product and will continue using this. :-) They can be bought in most stores such as Superdrug. Click here for the them. 

I will show you the other shades in which I have:










Thank you for reading guys.
What do you think of these polishes? Comment below.

London calling


Big Ben 

Hey there. As you guys most probably know, I have just been to the busy London for a couple of days and I absolutely loved it! I wanted to share with you a few of the things I got up to there and also some food which I recommend. I also went to Camden Market and got a few bits which I would like to share as I am in love with them. 
First of all, we spent the first day sight seeing, and wow I loved the sights. (However, my feet didn't haha - I have a funny story to tell you which I will discuss later..). I have been to London before however it was when I was much younger so I don't remember it as much as I would have liked too. 


London Eye and River Thames
Trafalgar Square - one of my favourite places 

A shot of the main attractions

Well Camden, what a place! So retro and full of shops, I was in my element! We went to Camden Market also, and I will post a few of the things which I bought whilst there. Camden market, if you haven't already been is full of shops, markets and also food stalls, which all looked and smelt yummy. The food stalls were very multicultural which I loved, plenty of choice. The markets sold things from jewellery, clothing, and anything vintage like. 


I bought these rings from Camden market. They were both from seperate jewellery stalls. The one on the left was £12.00 and this is moonstone and sterling silver with the stamp on the inside. The one on the right was £4.00 and is silver plated. Both gorgeous rings.

You can also shop online here.




This bandana/neckerchief is from a vintage shop called Rokit. This was only £2.50 and I love it!!

You can shop Rokit online here.
Here is pictures of it in my hair and around my neck. 



Loving messy braids at the minute also!



Food

Food food food... Absolutely love it and especially in London. Here is a few places which we had whilst we were there. 

Ed's Diner - Kit-kat sundae with Hershey chocolate sauce - YUMMY!

Convent Garden - The Diner - cheesy chips though!
Garfundels - Spaghetti carbonara 
Ed's Diner, Euston train station (although there are a couple of these about London)

Speedy's Cafe round the corner from where we stayed near Euston station


 There were just a few of our meals, we also went for an Indian while we were there called 'Punjab', this was gorgeous, thoroughly enjoyed every meal I had. Food was lovely and I was surprised how many diners London had, as burger and fries is my typical favourite meal, and as we are going to New York in the Summer, this gave me a taster of what to expect!! (exciteddddd :-)). 

Attractions

There's plenty to do in London, sight see, the British museum (which was amazing by the way - very historical.) However, no doubt my favourite experience of all was the London Dungeon's, if you haven't already been and you are thinking of going, definitely go! It was an experience I will never forget, live actors were walking you through the years of history which could be scary at times however quite funny. This experience enhances your senses, and there is also a couple of rides thrown into the experience too! Brill!

 

 This was the programme which we bought, which includes some facts of what they are talking about during the tour. 


London eye

 

It was lovely to see the views of London, a really pleasant relaxing part of the day this was. 



M&M world! A colourful really fun shop to go in. Couldn't leave without getting some m&m's plus the smell in the shop was just sensational!

We did do a lot of walking, however I really wanted to experience the tube (and give my feet a rest haha). We purchased a daily ticket and I got my partner to take a picture of me next to each sign (oh, how I like to embarrass him haha). These were just a few of the underground stations we went too. Such a great experience, very busy but convenient and fast to get you from A to B. Also a tad expensive to what I'm used to here. 



Being a proper tourist!

So, as I said earlier I would share with you my funny story... I took two pairs of trainers (which I knew definitely my converse would be comfy) but unfortunately they were not, they gave me blisters. So I spent a lot of time moaning about them so thought I need to go and buy some new shoes which were comfier! So we got the train to Oxford (wow - what a massive place and boy I loved the shops there - the H&M has like 3 floors, it was amazing). We spent almost an hour looking for new shoes while I was walking down the road (which was very long as we went the totally wrong way to find Primark! haha)

I ended up buying some gym shoes from Primark which are probably the comfiest trainers I have ever owned. (and for £14, you can't really complain). So I had to put these on as soon as I bought them and ask the member of staff to cut the tags off for me! Then I felt like I was walking on air and could get on with my day like a new women. 


These are soooo comfy. 


That's it for today guys, hope you enjoyed my post and if there if anything you want to ask me then feel free to comment below.
