Stacking turquoise rings for £2.50

Stacking rings is a beautiful way to add interest to an outfit. It can be a bit tedious building up a collection of rings to stack with though. This pack from Primark for £2.50 is perfect! So cheap and you can stack different ones together, maybe mixing with a few plainer bands. It is such a good pack to buy if you do want to build a small collection to stack with (like me!).

Fashionista Juicy Apricot Blush - This is love

This photo doesn't really do it justice. I need to be in front of a window for my digital camera to be remotely effective and because of that it washes me (and the blush) out so you can't really see it. I need a Canon 600D! 

Meet possibly the nicest blush in the world. It doesn't look like anything special and for £4 it's possibly the cheapest blush I own but it is by far my favourite. The two things that really do it for me are a, how pigmented it it and b, the colour. You need the tiniest amount of this blended out and the result is gorgeous. It just brightens. Its a lovely orange-peach colour, quite bright and perfect for spring. Its slightly chalky but honestly I don't think its matters. This is love.

I've had my haircut!

I've had my hair cut! I bit the bullet and went for a full fringe and so far I'm loving the change. I'm still working out how best to wear it, I'm thinking soft waves/curls through the ends and voluminous at the crown - otherwise it can look a bit helmet hair. I'm determined to make it work though. I might invest in some GHDs, a round thermal brush and some Oribe volume texture spray.  But for now my Remington straighteners and batiste will have to do. I really do NEED to get a job.

Little pieces of memory - Film Camera Photos

For the past 3 summers I've carried a film camera around with me and its a little bit of a tradition now. I love the retro feel with the vivid colours but the best part for me is the excitement of getting the photos developed because you have no idea how they will turn out. You can't take 100 photos a day with a film camera so every photo has thought put into it. Each photo re invokes a memory and even though lots of them aren't perfect, each one triggers a memory to a happy summer day and that makes me smile.
