Now I know I promised last week that this weeks post would be on my office outfits but I couldn’t help but blog about this. My regular readers will know I’ve recently started a new job (no more retail woohoo!) and received my first pay cheque last week. Therefore I found it only fitting to take a visit to Bicester Village with my best friend to blow some of my hard earned cash! Here’s what happened… Continue reading
This weeks post is gonna be on my top 5 favourite cocktails (as the post title suggests).Personally I love a cocktail whether they’re virgin or the regular alcoholic kind. There’s something I find sophisticated about sipping a cocktail, it makes me feel like one of the Sex and the City girls! It was quite hard to whittle down the finalists but here they are Continue reading
Sorry for the lack of communication for all my social media buddies out there, I’ve recently started a new job and my iPhone has decided to die on me! This weeks post will be a collaboration with fellow blogger Orianna Rosa Royle. If you haven’t already checked out her blog go have a look, she’s recently updated her blog (with a little help from moi) and its full of great recipes & beauty tips among other things!

Those of you who have Instagram (depending who you follow) may or not have seen the hot new product that is fiber lashes. The idea is that instead of getting expensive lash extensions or applying falsies daily, you simply use this magic two part kit and you’ll have all the effect of false lashes without the need for tweezers & glue. I was kind of skeptical/intrigued so I decided to order myself a kit to see for myself. Continue reading
Just a quick post to announce the winner of my giveaway! Sadly it had to end. First off I’d like to thank everyone who has entered and all the great new blogs I’ve been able to check out because of it. There can be only one winner, as much as I’d like to send a pair to each of you, and she is the lovely Beth Thomas from TheBritishGirl.co.uk! A big congratulations to her and if you haven’t checked out her blog already take a look.
This weeks post is another Where? What? When? feature but with a take on the Throwback Thursday (all my instagrammer’s will know) except its Wednesday so I had to change it. Anyway I decided to take you way back to when it was my birthday and share with you what I wore, a few pics and the recipe for one of the delicious cocktails I made!
When & Where?
For my birthday this year (2nd of May, write it down so you can buy me presents next year 😉 ) I went to a cocktail making masterclass at Be At One in London Covent Garden.
So basically you’re supposed to go into the bar (its closed to the public) and you & your group get to go behind and make 2-3 cocktails each. However we made friends with our teacher, by simply not pissing him off like most groups, and before I knew it I was hammered at 4pm. It’s safe to say we got our moneys worth, as we each made (and drank) about 5 cocktails plus there were a few shots thrown in too. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed making all the cocktails, I’d highly recommend it if you don’t know what to do for your next birthday!

Orianna (right): Floral Print Skort – Primark (similar here), Gold Leaf Necklace – similar here, Beige Top- similar here, Blazer- similar here
As for what I wore, I don’t really have many pictures that show it off properly (I have a post here). Here I am with fellow blogger Orianna Rosa slightly worse for wear after the cocktails. I wore my tweed Lipsy playsuit, tights (it was slightly colder then), wedges and topped it off with my favourite Next sheer bomber and bright green River Island bag. I loved wearing this outfit, I felt so comfy while not compromising on style, I even ended up clubbing in this later on that night and didn’t feel too underdressed! My nails I had painted the previous day for my birthday meal, inspired by this cute design I saw on Pinterest. I used Barry M Silk Nail Effects in Mist as a base and picked up some pearl studs at my local craft shop. I had originally planned to go get my nails done (it was my birthday and I was feeling lazy) but after being told they couldn’t do it by FIVE different nail shops, I got the hump and decided to do it myself. I have to admit this is extremely fiddlier than it looks and after completing one nail I decided one per hand was more than enough!
