Put My Money Where My Mouth Is

I've been on the look out for a new purse for a while after my old one was getting a bit worn around the edges. I knew I wanted something that could fit lots of cards in as I seem to have a bit of a collection of loyalty cards from just about every shop! 

I spotted this one from & Other Stories and fell in love with the summery colour. I was a bit reluctant to pay the £39 price tag so when it went into the sale a few weeks ago I bought it straight away.

I love the gold zip detail and how soft it is; there are also lots of hidden pockets inside which mean I can fit everything in and still zip it up easily. 

As I was paying (a quite expensive) £6 for delivery I also bought a nail polish as i've read lots of good reviews about their polishes. I picked up this pale mint colour called Moire Green. The application is easy as it's quite thin and you only need a couple of coats too.

When The Time Is Right, When There's No Way Out

It's been a while since I last blogged; work has been hectic and i'm looking forward to a couple of weeks off at the end of the month to enjoy what's left of summer! I thought i'd do a bit of a lifestyley favourites post to get me back into blogging and fingers crossed i'll find the time to make this a bit more of a regular thing :)

I was lucky enough to watch the Tour de France as it passed through Yorkshire last month - the atmosphere was amazing and I definitely don't regret the two miles I had to walk to see it! I managed to get some of the race on video; it was a lot faster than I expected - you can see it on my instagram here.

I love this new Warehouse tee; online it looks like it's made of cotton but in reality it has a shiny front and cotton back which makes it feel a lot more expensive. The sleeves also have little buttons for extra detail and the print is perfect for summer and reminds me of something you'd find in Ted Baker. You can find a better picture of it online here: Warehouse Tropical Bird Print Tee

And finally a couple of my food favourites: Firstly these truffles which are to die for! They're really rich so for once I don't feel like I have to finish them all at once and they taste so so good. Definitely recommend!
Every few months I treat myself to a Graze box and my 'send soon' is always checked for the Sticky Chocolate Pudding. It's my all time favourite, closely followed by the Honeycomb and Lemon Curd flapjacks. If you haven't tried any of them you're definitely missing out!

The World Is At My Feet And I Am Standing On The Ceiling

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish in Apricot Nectar - £6.49, Urban Outfitters Rabbit Make-Up Bag - £6, Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy - £7.99
& Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in Belle - £4.79,

I definitely go through phases of buying lots of make-up and then none at all and on a recent shopping trip I treated myself to a few new things after reading too many blog posts and watching too many haul videos.

I've been loving all the summer sales that are around and after lusting after this make-up bag when it was full price I couldn't resist it at just £6! I love that it's waterproof and will fit in everything including my moisturiser and foundation which my smaller one wouldn't.

I had a few Boots vouchers to use so I picked up one of the Revlon Parfumerie polishes to try. I love the colour and the scent is slightly noticeable which is nice but it isn't as easy to apply as some of my favourites from Model's Own and Topshop.

I love sheer lip products and after using the Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick in Beehive religiously I thought i'd treat myself to another colour. Belle is slightly darker although not by much and is a nice alternative for summer.

I also bought another Revlon Lip Butter, this time in Cotton Candy which i've been loving. It has a little bit of shimmer and is a lovely pink for when I want a brighter lip.
