Favourite things in June

I have now officially finished college so am hoping to spend more time working on my little blog, ahead of its second birthday in August. You also may notice that there have been two posts this week, whaaat?! Since finishing sixth form, I have decided to post twice a week. Tuesday's will be an OOTD or fashion related post, and Friday's will be dedicated to lifestyle- so enjoy!  I am going away to Brighton at the end of July so will be trying to shoot as many outfits as I can, since it is a hella pretty place. 

Blogosphere magazine- Blogosphere is always one of my favourite magazines, and I dream someday of being featured in it. From the design to the photography, it is so beautiful and inspirational, and the latest issue is no exception. I loved the interview with Emma Gannon, as well as the fashion section (obviously), but the rest of the articles are so easy to read and so helpful for bloggers looking to grow their online presence; like myself.

New Look chokers- I used to completely slate the choker trend, mainly the tattoo style chokers (which I still don't like FYI) but ,recently, I have discovered a love for some chokers so picked up these two in New Look the other week. At only £1.99 and £2.99 each, they didn't break the bank and I love wearing them with floaty dresses or a t-shirt and jeans. My favourite way to wear the silver ribbon one is with my Vero Moda dress, which I styled a while ago here, and with a pair of silver sandals.

Illamasqua nail varnish- Okay, so I got this for £3 in Tk Maxx. Yes, I know how incredible that is. I partly picked this up because of how cheap it was for an Illamasqua product, but also because I LOVE the colour. It is a bright orangey-yellow- perfect for summer. When applied it is extremely matte- and I definitely mean extremely. However, once I applied my topcoat (I use Revlon) it created the perfect shine and the colour is even better when it is on my nails. Needless to say I am in luurve.

Lottie London nail varnish-  I also got this from TK Maxx (the holy grail), and I love the formulation and colour. I wore it for an interview recently, as it matched the flowers on my dress well. It is fairly long lasting and stayed on my nails without chipping for almost a week. I also love the design of the bottle and the black and white stripes on the lid.

What have you been loving this past month?

  1. The nail varnishes look lovely colours. Gemma x

  2. I believe TK Maxx is similar to Winners in Canada and I love buying nail polish from there too. There's some hidden gems that we could buy.

    1. It is such a good magazine, I would definitely recommend it! x

  5. I used to be obsessed with chokers years ago and now I think I will pass this trend. £3 for Illamasqua nail polish is a catch!
