I recently returned from a fantastic four day break in Barcelona and bought some lovely things that I thought I’d share with you!

This gorgeous green shirt is from Stradivarius and cost around 23 euros which is amazing as i’ve worn it three times and only been back a week! It can easily be dressed up with a necklace and boots or down with light jeans and vans.

These shorts are from a little boutique shop that I stumbled across and I can’t remember the name of it! They only cost 7.99 and are going to be a summer staple with plain t-shirts.

I got this clutch bag from the same shop as I got the shorts and it was only 4 euros. It’s going to be perfect to take on my holiday to Greece as it will go with all of my outfits for both day and night.

I got this face mask from Sephora for around 3 euros and was really looking forward to trying it but I must have done something wrong as it set before I could even apply it!

I also bought these two sheet masks from Sephora as I’ve heard they’re really good. They only cost 1.50 too which is a total bargain.

Spring Wish List

With the weather finally warming up a little I thought I’d share with you my top fashion picks this spring!

Black Denim Dungarees

These ASOS dungarees are perfect for casual wear and will help you transition into the warmer months as you can wear a jumper underneath while its still chilly and then t-shirts throughout the summer.

Suede Jacket

This suede biker jacket is the perfect spring alternative to my trusty black leather one.

Shirt Dresses

Shirt dresses like this one from Warehouse are a wardrobe staple as they are perfect for pretty much any occasion. They can be dressed up with a pair of heels and a statement necklace or dressed down with some flats or converse for everyday wear.

Fringe

The fringe/tassel trend is going to be big this summer and I think these items from H&M are the perfect way to incorporate it effortlessly into your everyday style.

A good eyelash curler is a necessity for my limp straight lashes, i’ve had this one for years so I’m not sure where its from but you can find them pretty much everywhere.

Kiko Ultra Tech Curve Mascara

This is honestly the best mascara that i’ve ever used, it is also one of Kiko’s best selling and I can definitely see why! It leaves my lashes looking thick and volumised without being clumpy and can be built up for an amazing dramatic look or you can apply less for every day wear.

It retails for around £7.20

Benefit ‘gimme brow’

Holiday Haul

I recently went on holiday to Greece for a week and bought some lovely things that I thought I would share with you.

The first thing I got was this gorgeous leather bag. It cost 60 euros which is great as it’s amazing quality and will never go out of style.

I got this necklace for around 4-5 euros and absolutely love it, it goes with everything and looks a lot more expensive than it is.

This piece cost only 3 euros and gives the effect of wearing more than one bracelet as it wraps around your wrist three times. The blue stones also add a gorgeous pop of colour to a plain outfit.

 I got one of these sponges 9 years ago when I last went to Greece and absolutely loved it so I thought I would get another. It cost 3.50 and works amazing at gently removing dead skin.

I’ve been using olive oil in my hair as a mask to make it soft and shiny, so when I saw these soaps I knew I had to try them to see if the oil worked well on my skin too. It cost 3 euros with the pumice stone which is a great deal.

This bow ring is absolutely beautiful, and it only cost me 3.50!  It’s quite a statement ring which means that you don’t need to wear a lot of other jewellery with it.

The colours and patterns in this 5 euro scarf mean that it will go with a lot of outfits and will also be perfect for transitioning into autumn.

These light pink high tops look gorgeous with tanned legs and go with almost any outfit. They only cost me 29 euros which is a great saving as I would have paid over £40 in England.

I love this ankle bracelet, it looks best when worn with my converse and a pair of shorts. It only cost me 4 euros too, which is a great price.

Overall, I think I got some lovely pieces and great deals.
Have any of you bought anything on your holidays?

My most used..

Everyone has those few staple items which they really couldn’t replace, despite how many new things they buy. For example; a bag which goes with every outfit, or a pair of extremely comfortable shoes.

I’m going to show you my all time favourite items, from clothes to make up.

My most used:

Lipstick

 

This lipstick is amazing, it is extremely moisturising and gives your lips the perfect subtle peachy/orange colour. It is from Avon and is in the shade ‘silky peach’.

Foundation

 I use this mineral foundation on a daily basis. It gives an extremely natural look as if you aren’t wearing foundation at all, whilst still covering  your imperfections. Mine is in the shade ‘fairly light’.

 Blusher

 This blusher is from The Body Shop and is in the shade ’01 Petal’. It’s absolutely brilliant and gives even the dullest skin an instant, natural looking glow.

Nail Polish

 I love this coral coloured nail polish from Collection 2000. The shade (‘fruit salad’) is perfect for summer and lasts for a long time.

Perfume

I honestly couldn’t choose a favourite between these two perfumes, they both smell amazing! Loverdose by Diesel is quite a strong scent, whereas Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflowers is light, fresh and perfect for everyday wear.

Hair product

This leave in conditioner from Avon is a life saver, it makes my hair so soft and lasts for three washes. I apply it once a week to the ends of my hair after showering and it helps to prevent split ends and keeps my hair looking and feeling healthy.

Moisturiser

The Body Shop’s coconut body butter is absolutely brilliant; it smells amazing, sinks in really well and keeps my skin so soft.

Earrings

These earrings are my absolute favourite;  they go with everything and are the perfect size. Unfortunately, I’m not sure where they’re from as they were a birthday gift.

Bag

I got this bag from H&M last year and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. It’s a really good size and allows me to carry just the right amount.

Shoes

These shoes go with everything and are extremely comfortable. They were a bargain too; I got them for £10 from Madhouse.

Coat

I wear this coat from from House of Fraser constantly; the leather is so soft and it is extremely flattering. It was a little bit pricey originally, however I got it on sale for £100 from £275 .
