Nicki Minaj - Starships
Marina and the Diamonds - Prima Donna
Beyonce - Countdown
Imelda May - Psycho

Motel Sale on Asos

There's a sale on all Motel items today on ASOS.com! It's only for 24 hours so it's making me a bit panicky! Shall I buy this gorgeous printed playsuit or not?! It's reduced to £24.99 and I love the halterneck detail with circular open back...hmmm! I've got the rest of the evening to decide! It would be perfect for summer evenings at the pub...

First Day Working at Aubin & Wills

It was my first day working at Aubin & Wills in Southwold today! It's a brand new store, opening on Saturday, so I was helping to sort out our first stock delivery!

I had to take the items out of boxes, some were stored on the shop floor and some in our stock room. I had to carefully attach security tags then arrange them in size order. We have the most gorgeous selection!

Check out our website http://www.aubinandwills.com/en-gb/home

Or have a look at some of my favourite items so far!

Our store looks amazing with it's whitewashed flooring, walls and antique looking furniture!
If your in Suffolk this Saturday come and check it out, we are having a tea-party to celebrate!

The Foundations

I tested my new MAC Foundation yesterday. It's one with SPF included so I'm hoping it will do my skin the world of good once (if) we get some sunshine! I applied it with a brush but it was really bad quality so the bristles kept falling out, must get a better brush! Apart from that the foundation went on really smoothly and covered blemishes.
I love the packaging too, the sleek black design with white logo looks very expensive and posh! And the pump action is easy to use and hasn't stuck so far!

Old Lady Slipper

Check out my new slippers! Thought I'd match my boyfriends grandad slippers by buying some old lady ones! They have a super thick sole with extra padding around the heel for comfort. The soft lining is sooo comfy, even if I do sound like an old woman saying it! The thistle patten is very patriotic with the Jubilee approaching! And I don't think they are too dissimilar to some shoes in the one and only Topsho!

Crop Tops

Crop Tops are everywhere this season. I’ve written an article for my final uni project of the year about them, so once it’s been marked it will be up here for all to see along with the photoshoot that went with it. Here’s a sneak peak at one of the outfits from the website.

Bigger than the Oscars

My friend's 21st Birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and she's having an Oscar themed Quiz night. It's going to be great being held in a pub with a buffet laid on. And the best thing will be the dressing up!
I'm currently deciding between classic black and on trend floral.
I love this tight black dress with flowing dipped hem, £40 from ASOS. It's elegant, classic and the dipped hem makes it very fashionable. 
 Or, this gorgeous bright floral strapless dress, also £40 from ASOS. The structured bust detailing really makes this dress stunning.
ASOS is amazing at the moment, especially the app. You can browse at all the new updates anywhere, anytime!

Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow?

I'm contemplating dying my hair. I've always been dark brown naturally and I've been highlighting with red for the past year and a half. However I'm fancying a change...a big one.
I love Millie Mackintosh's hair from Made In Chelsea. It always looks sleek, natural and sun-kissed, just the look I'm aiming for but a big leap away from my almost black locks. There would have to be bleach involved, hmmm! What do you think?

London Style

Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long! Theres been lots of uni deadlines and a new job!
As I went to my training in London yesterday I was taking note of the sartorial style of passersby and instores.
There were some rally cool outfits, one man was wearing mint green chinos and turquoise shirt! Not colours for the faint hearted but looked great on him and his essex like swagger!
Cos was a favourite that I went into! It has the most gorgeous pastel shades in floaty fabrics - very me this summer!
Cath Kidson was beautiful as always! Once I have my own house there will be lots of space for Cath Kidson! Especially the mugs and teacups!
Anyway, more about my new job coming your way soon!
