Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Screw Cuff

Guess who's getting married!? Not meee, but I can't help but feel like a modern bride-to-be in this get up. I really love the whole white on white look, I think a lot of fair girls tend to avoid wearing white but I just embrace my paleness. 

I was recently sent a beautiful rose gold tone screw cuff from Marc by Marc Jacobs. I've been a massive fan of all things MBMJ for years, their quirky jewellery pieces are so much fun and make great gifts.

I think I'm a bit of a sucker for rose gold, because as soon as I spotted this bangle it was game over. I've worn a similar outfit to this before on the blog but I can't get enough of this pretty Traffic People dress and the whole boho vibe. They really do make the cutest frocks.

Are you a fan of the white out trend? Do you like Marc by Marc Jacobs?

Mi Moneda Verano Bracelet + Summer at House of Fraser!

I hope this beautiful Summer last foreeeever! I've never worn so many pretty frocks in one year. Last week I was sent a tiered mint floral maxi dress from House of Fraser, they are well known for their premium brands but they also have a lot of affordable ranges from brand partners such as Miss Selfridge! I haven't bought anything from MS since I was a sweet young thang, but I couldn't resist this delicious mint green maxi which is an absolute bargain.

I love mint for SS14, one of my favourite brands Mi Moneda recently launched their new Verano bracelets and I was lucky enough to get my paws on the mint version! Double the minty goodness = double the awesomeness.

I opted for this tasty colour combo but the Verano bracelet is also available in champagne, mauve and peach. Like the Mi Moneda rings, the XS coin (or Moneda) is interchangeable allowing you to create a completely different look by just switching a coin! Mine is engraved with 'Live the life you love, love the life you live'. They have lots of UK stockists but you can also just shop online via their official website.

There are a lot of Mi Moneda copies on the market but I urge you to buy the real thing and support the original design team. I think it's great that they keep coming up with new pieces, I honestly can't wait to see what's coming next!

Do you shop at House of Fraser? Are you a fan of Mi Moneda?

bareMinerals Bristol Beauty Blogger Event!

Last Friday, I attended a VIP bareMinerals Bristol Beauty Blogger Event in House of Fraser, Cabot Circus. I was first introduced to the brand back in 2008 when I wandered into a Sephora in SoBe (Miami) looking for something to stop my face melting off. Thankfully one of the chipper American Sales Assistants suggested bM and I was able to party with a shine-free face!

I stopped using Bare Minerals about a year or so ago, so it was nice to be re-introduced to the brand and educated in a really fun and informal way! There were nibbles and treats on hand while the lovely Ashton talked us through the history of the company and gave us an overview of the products.

I'm quite conscious of what I put on my face and the Bare Minerals foundation, Mineral Veil and Warmth are made with only the purest, highest quality ingredients. The foundation is proven to improve your skin over time, it's lightweight and has surprisingly good coverage. It's definitely worth investing in a starter kit if you're a bM newbie and fancy giving it a go - my first kit lasted for agggges!

We were each treated to a Make Under, Joseph created a really natural look for me which was so easy to achieve! During the event we were invited to try out different products and it's pretty safe to say we were all obsessed with the Marvelous Movie Hypnotist (Colour Changing) Lipgloss. Seeing is believing with this awesome gloss, it makes me think of unicorns and is definitely on my WANT list. Waaah!

I've been impressed by their skincare in the past, I really like their Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream and I have their Active Cell Renewal Night Serum ready to try, but next on my list is the Pure Transformation Night Treatment! This product sounds magical, it's a concentrated powder (weird, right?) which has been clinically proven to reduce pores, improve skin texture and it's anti-aging! It comes in 4 different shades including clear and I can't wait to give it a whirl.

It's always nice to meet new faces at blog events, shout out to Beky Lou, Eltoria Secrets, A Simple Melody and Maliberry Makeup - it was super to meet y'all! Payday is just around the corner so I know I'll be investing in a new starter kit soon. We were each given a goody bag and even had our nails painted by the lovely team at Estée Lauder...It was such a fun night! If you live locally, head into House of Fraser and check out the bM concession, Ashton & Joseph are the sweetest and are both so knowledgeable.

Have you used bM before?

T - My love for bareMinerals has been reignited! Thanks for the invite guys. ♥

#OOTD - Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Wildfox and Ravel Wedges!

What did you do at the weekend? Well, . . I broke in my brown wedges . . . :)

I love the LA actress/model/stylist look of old forever fave denim, the beat up tee and brown leather wedges, so when the Ravel Kennedia Wedges landed on my doorstep, I knew exactly how I wanted to style them up! It's a simple look, but one that I felt both comfy and kinda hot in. 

Outfit: Tee - Wildfox, Jeans - Levi's, Shoes - c/o Ravel, Jewellery - Mi Moneda, Watch - Breo.

They're SO comfortable, to be honest they didn't take much breaking in at all! The wide leather straps are super soft and don't cut into my skin at all. I love the criss cross detail and gold buckle, they'll look really cute with skinny jeans and dresses. The raffia patterned heel gives a nod to poolside chic too, so you could really get your JLo on at the beach! I kept my nail polish to a simple gold but these shoes would also really pop with a hot orange or pink.

Do you like this simple look? How would you style these shoes for an everyday look like this? Bear in mind that I'm not really a skirts and heels girl unless I'm glammed up and going out ;)

How was your weekend guys? Isn't it just too hot to trot? I can't deal, I don't want to be a sad Sally but I kinda just want to feel some rain sometime soon!
