When I saw this knitted crop top jumper on Missguided's Instagram, I literally went online and bought this one along with a White one about five minutes later. You know when you just see something and you're like, 'yep, that's mine' and you don't even question it, this was one of those moments. I just fell in love with the style and colour of this crop top instantly. Also these jeans are a relatively new purchase from ASOS, as I really wanted some, 'mom' style jeans but with rips and these were exactly what I wanted. Primark's Summer collection is really impressing me at the moment too, especially these Gladiator style ones which I like because they have a good sturdy flatform sole which means they are so so comfy. Yay from Primark!

Mr Nutcase Customised Phonecase

How cute is this custom iPhone case?! I just love it. When the team at, Mr Nutcase, contacted me to design my very own iPhone case, I was super excited as I've seen customised iPhone cases before, but had not really thought about getting one myself. I think they are so cute for encapsulating a few memories of good times. The Mr Nutcase website makes the designing of your own custom iPhone case easy to do with it's wide range of templates to choose from. All you have to do is upload your images and drag them onto the template, and you are done! Super easy, quick and simple. I really love how mine has turned out - the pictures translate on to the phone case in good quality and the phone case itself is sterdy and not too slippery which I hate with some iPhone cases as this makes my phone slip and slide out of my hands all too easily. If you like the idea of a customised iPhone case, the Mr Nutcase team have a discount code of 10% which you can apply to a case of your own design using the code, 'Thanku10'.

All About Orange

all about orange all about orange
Following on from my last post, I've been loving Pink make-up as we transition into the warmer time of year but I also do love Orange hues too. I think pulling off an Orange look can be quite difficult and I do also think Orange looks best on sunkissed tanned skin, however, I try to embrace my paleness by picking Orange shades that compliment me the most. I picked a few of my favourite Orange make-up picks which I find are versatile and work great for me.

(Lipstick: Topshop, in, 'Infrared'/Nail Polish: Leighton Denny, in, 'I Love Juicy'*/Cuticle Gel: Nailtiques*)

I've already professed my love for the Topshop Lipstick in, 'Infrared' in my full review here. I do wear this all year round but it definitely gets a lot more wear from me during the Summer. It is a very bright Orange with a hint of Red so I do feel I have to bronze up my skin quite a lot with this lipstick in order for it to look the best it can! I love this lipstick with just a simple slick of liquid liner or with a simple Bronze eye like I have here. I have fallen in love with the eye-shadow 'Copper' from the Sleek Make-Up Original palette, I think it looks particularly good with this lipstick or with just a simple nude lip.

If I'm going for a matchy-matchy Orange look all round, I will pick a Orange toned nail colour also. I've recently tried out this Leighton Denny polish in, 'I Love Juicy'. I haven't tried a Leighton Denny polish before but I'm SO impressed with them. I find this goes on so smooth and opaque even from the first coat. I applied three coats just to make sure the colour was as vibrant as possible and this looked amazing without it being really thick for it to peel off easily. The picture is taken after three days of having the nail polish on and there is not a chip in sight. Very impressed with this nail polish overall! To make sure my nails are in tip-top condition I've been applying this Nailtiques Cuticle and Skin Gel around the skin around my nails as well as my cuticles. My skin can get quite dry so this is nice to apply to make sure my skin is soft.

Has anybody else got any Orange favourites?

Spring/Summer Pink Make-Up and Looks

SPRING SUMMER PINK MAKEUP
As we are heading towards the hottest months of the year, I tend to change up my make-up up from what I was primarily wearing in the Autumn and Winter. I've said numerous times on this blog that I tend to gravitate towards Pink in general with my make-up as I find that these tones suit me the best, so I love that Pink is definitely, 'in' this year. 
SPRING SUMMER PINK MAKEUP
Pastel hues of Pink I love for everyday polished looks but I also love a bright pop of Pink which is perfect for Summer and complement tanned skin amazingly. 

Pastel Pink
SPRING SUMMER PINK MAKEUP
I love my, Urban Decay Naked3 Palette to create eyeshadow looks with pink hues. There's so many looks you can create from this palette which is why I love it. It's so beautiful, I could just stare at it all day and be content. I also love the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in, 'Pink Gold' for a quick swish of a Pink with gold shimmers running through it. They are so easy to blend out so no need for brushes. On my lips I've been loving Benefit's, 'Lollitint' which is a cheek and lip stain. I definitely prefer this on my lips as you can build the colour and the formula dries instantly and stays put! If I want a little bit more moisture, I will apply, Revlon's Lip-Butter in, 'Strawberry Shortcake' to give my lips a Pinky-Lilac colour. 

Pop of Pink
SPRING SUMMER PINK MAKEUP
I love a bright lip in Summer, especially a fluorescent shade like this, Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in, 'Showy'. These matte balms are fricking amazing! I love matte lips generally, and these make me love them even more. They don't dry my lips out and as the product comes in a stick this makes precision application so easy. This shade really reminds me of, MAC's, 'Candy Yum Yum' as they are both Blue-toned Pinks. To keep with the bright pink theme, I love to add a little pop of neon pink to my cheeks with this, YSL Cream Blush in, '5'. Unfortunately this colour is sold out but there are other very similar colours to this still available. The blusher is a mousse like texture so it's very light and glides onto the skin looking very natural. A good cheaper alternative for a cream blusher which I also really like is the Max Factor Miracle Touch Cream Blush in, 'Soft Pink'. I usually wear this bright pink look when I'm short on time as my other make-up can be quite natural and my lipstick can be the main focus. 

Anybody else loving Pink in general the moment too?
