I Love a Good Necklace

Like the title says I love a good necklace, the bigger the better! I decided to show a few of my recent buys picked up from my travels around the world.

I love being able to wear a distinctive piece of jewellery that I know no one I know will be wearing. For that reason I tend to stick to accessory shopping either abroad or in small bazaars/markets.

What is your favourite necklace this season?

P.s please excuse my shoddy photography skills ;)

Holidays & Roadtrips

The last week has been HECTIC!

So I decided to spring a surprise holiday on a very unsuspecting individual which went down an absolute treat. We decided to go to North Germany (mainly because I love Germany and can speak the language which makes things easier).

It was a fabulous few days and the weather was hotter than the UK which is always a bonus ;) I would definitely recommend Bremen for a city break. So much to see and do and it's not too denting on the the old bank balance either! If you are considering going I will happily write you a little list of things to see and do.

Then... 2 days after arriving home myself and a few girl friends decided to take a road trip. I absolutely love road trips and this was no exception. Visiting the small town of Bakewell provided lots of delicious food and a look around the markets. Again, I would also recommend this for a quick weekend getaway. I seem to building a theme of city breaks with my posts...

How was your week?

Festival Weekend

Last weekend I decided to go to a music festival in the North West, just for the day though because I am  definitely NOT a camping person. It was such a lovely sunny day and I got to see many of my favourite acts I had been waiting a while to see.

I've included a few pics but apologies as the quality is not brilliant ;)

How was your weekend guys?

What's in your makeup bag?

Following on from one of my older posts 'What's in Your Handbag?' I decided to do another but looking at the contents of my make up bag. Genius, right?!

Normally on a day to day basis I try to stay away from the caked look during the day and try and wear minimal make up which is usually - foundation, mascara and blusher. This is only so when I go out I can up the glamour so I can look dramatically different from how I look at at work. (And also look like I've made an effort).

At the minute I use the touché eclait foundation from YSL but I have previously used the perfect touch also by YSL and can do nothing but sing its praises! What foundation are you using currently, if any?

Picture shows -

Shopping, Food and Friends

So today was another lovely day here in Yorkshire and a friend decided to come and visit me for the day. So what did we decide to do? Lunch and shopping of course ;)

I bought a lovely new mint green t-shirt and a nice cheap pair of sunglasses. I have SOO many pairs of sunglasses but I just can't stop buying more!

For lunch we went to an Italian restaurant which was very impressive. Normally I tend to avoid large chains of restaurants but I was both impressed with the service and the quality of food. Two thumbs up from me.

What's the one thing you guys can't stop buying more of?

Tee - H&M
Sunglasses - New Look
