Some Nail Tender-Loving-Care.

Taking care of your nails is very necessary, you give your skin special treatments with face masks and cleansers, so why shouldn't your nails be the same. I've recently had some major issues with my nails, but it’s just about resolved now so here’s some tips on how I achieved my healthy nails back. 
Firstly if you’re like me and paint your nails a different colour every 3 days then you have to give your nails some kind of break or they will start to hate you. Even if you are using a base coat you will start to see that your nails become stained and brittle. I’d say to try to give your nails a break for a few days at least two times a week. Also try to use a strengthening base coat to keep your nails strong underneath the nail polish, I use 17 Nail Xtras Strengthening Base Coat.

Another thing that you should do is choose a nail polish remover that suits your nails. Most removers are suited to a particular type of nails, such as brittle and dry, or for sensitive and acrylic nails.Using remover too regularly also isn't the best for your nails which is why, again a break from painting them is a good idea. 

Another great product to have in your nail care routine, is a cuticle oil. I didn't really use this to help my cuticles, just to try and give them some well needed moisture, within about two days they were so smooth and not cracked at all. This was probably the thing that helps my nails the most! I currently use Nature's Renaissance Cuticle Treatment, which my Mum kindly donated to my nails, and unfortunately I can't find it anywhere! But there are cuticle oils everywhere, if you know of any good ones, please let me know!

It's not just the nails you need to keep care of but also your hands and around your nails, for this you need a good hand cream. I currently use La Source Hand Therapy- again donated by my Mother-, but as you can see this is running pretty low so I'm going to be either re-purchasing this or finding a new hand cream. One designed for both your hands and nails would be ideal!

One last thing is something that I can't actually help you with, my nails were so badly stained it was actually disgusting, I looked like I had been smoking for a hundred years! When I finally did something about it I tried to research how to 'unstain' your nails, the most popular thing I found was a mixture of, lemon, baking soda, olive oil and sugar. But for me this really did not work at all, I just let my nails breathe and after about 3 weeks the orange stain had grown out. It is a pretty long process so keep care of your nails while you can!

I will tell you it was such a nightmare having to keep my nails unpainted for at least a month so it is definitely worth trying to give them a break and regular treatments. If there's anything you do to your nails that you would like to share please do!

Hope this helps any nail painting addicts out there! Thanks for reading, becciixx.

Bluberry Glitter.

It is so difficult to fit in blogging and revision, it may not look like it takes long but after writing, editing and taking pictures you've suddenly lost hours! I can't afford to do this, but I've got some time today to write about my nails. For the first time in about a month I've actually painted my nails, they were in such bad condition a had to give them a break so they would be less orange and broken. There were finally in good condition to start painting again! So I went for my favourite polish, BarryM hi-shine in Blueberry.
I love these nails! I really love the blueberry colour but I fancied something a but more so I decided to put on Silver Glitter by BarryM on a few random fingers and I think it looks really cool. If only the sun was out then the glitter would really shine-but it's England people!- The Gelly Hi Shine formulas are just fantastic, probably my favourite nail polish ever!

Sorry it's only a short post but I'm trying to use my time well here! Hope your all well, becciixx.

The Eight Hour Diet.

I've recently been hitting the gym and I decided that outing this effort in I should also change my diet slightly, but I wasn't sure how. Whilst waiting for my boyfriend to have his hair cut –incredibly bored may I add- I picked up the Sun Newspaper. Flicking through the pages I came across ‘The Eight Hour Diet’ and it looked really interesting. I've only been doing it for a week so I don’t have any results to share but I just thought you might like to hear about it! Unfortunately I couldn't take the paper so I found the same diet on the Marie Claire website.
The theory behind this diet is that only eating food during a set eight-hour time period gives our bodies a chance to reset and in turn a chance to process nutrients and properly get rid of toxins like it’s supposed to. It’s a way of extending the period between your last snack and your breakfast giving the body the chance to burn away your fat stores for the energy it needs.

It does make some ambitious claims that it can burn about 10lbs in one week, but after this one week it depletes and you can burn up to 20lbs in six weeks. Another great thing about this is you can choose any eight hour period that you want, so you can fit it around the eating habits that you already have. As I am slightly naughty and always skip breakfast I chose to start eating at 11 o'clock and to stop at 7, this really suits be as I am quite a late eater as I usually eat with my parents.

Drinks are not completely banned during the eight hours either, water, tea and coffee are allowed but you should try to limit the amount of sugars you have! This is probably what I find the hardest as I love Pear drop flavoured squash but this is not allowed as there is way too much sugar!

You can eat what you want during these eight hours –try to do this in moderation though!- which is the great freedom of the diet, but you should try to have at least two of the eight power foods that were listed in the newspaper. First up we have ‘The fat busters’, Turkey, eggs, other lean meats, nuts, dairy –especially yoghurts- and beans. The second group is ‘The health boosters’ this consists of berries, fruits, green vegetables, wholegrain breads, cereals and oatmeal.

Something else that shown to be very beneficial is eight minutes of exercise when you first wake up should be enough to start of your metabolism off for the rest of the day. I am not currently doing this as I am using the gym a few times a week, but I will be starting as I am using the school’s gym for free but I am finishing sixth form completely this week so I will no longer have access to this!

The cherry on the cake is that you do not have to do this every day, as long as you follow these rules at least three times a week you will see results! Which is fantastic in my opinion, but I am trying to do this every week day and having a break on the weekend.

If you have any other questions leave them below and I can answer them, also if you know of any other good diets, let me know! Thanks for reading, becciixx.

11) I'm the worst person ever at thinking up facts about myself.

Misha's Questions-
Do you prefer gold, silver or bronze jewellery?
I'd have to say bronze jewellery as I think that's the closet to rose gold which I love! I'm hopefully getting a rose gold watch for my birthday so you'll be seeing that soon.
Who is your celebrity style icon?
This is really difficult but I'd say Blake Lively, the dresses she wears on the red carpet are just stunning and her day-to-day wear is really up my street too!
What is your favourite song at the moment?
Oh god, probably would have to be Jason Mraz 'I won't give up' as it's just so beautiful.
What are the first three items you'd buy if you won over 10 million pounds?
So much choice, of course I would buy fashion things but I'd save that till later so probably a car- not sure what one-, design and fund building my own house and then an apartment in New York or Paris.
One fashion item you can't live without?
Ahh, ermm...Probably my leather jacket as it's just so versatile to throw on over any outfit, and living in England I gotta have some sleeves going on!
If you were only allowed to wear one would you chose, eye makeup or face make-up?
Definitely face make-up I don't really go a day without wearing a full face of foundation even if I just popping to the shops, and the only eye make-up I really use is mascara and eyeliner which I think I could live without.
What is your favourite animal?
Sea Lions! Ever since I went to Colchester Zoo when I was about 9 and all the sea lions came up to me from behind the glass and ignored everyone else I loved them!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Heels. I have about 30 pairs but I only wear one pair like once every two months, but I continue to buy more which is so unnecessary.
Do you collect anything?
Can I say shoes again....? No okay, well I collect piggy banks I suppose I have two large ones and four mini ones and I designate them each a coin to have.
If you could pick anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Oh it's between New York and Paris, but I think I would go to New York as it's warmer than France and the shops are just incredible! New York is quite ambitious I suppose and I do actualy want to move to Paris after Uni, but if I could it would be New York.
Favourite Blog?
Mean question! I can't answer this! I love LLYMLRSWhat I Heart TodayVivianna Does Makeup and Glam and Glitter. But I really can't pick between them!

bareMinerals Blush.

I've never been much of a fan of blushes, I've been using the same one for about 3 years, and I haven't even replaced it once -slightly gross I know-. To be honest I didn't even really like it that much! But I recently got my hands on some bareMinerals products, including a blush duo of Pink Ice and Ginger Spice. Ginger Spice is the Bronzer in the set and it is a lovely golden shade, which is not even slightly orange. I don't tend to use bronzers but for someone that does this would be a gorgeous colour. The Pink Ice shade is an incredibly bright pink that looks so scary but goes great with my skin tone, it also has a gold shimmer to it which just adds to the prettiness. 
Honestly I have never seen such a beautiful blush colour, and it's definitely spurred me on to try out some more blushes as the really can change your look which I didn't realise before. So basically it's a life saver, but unfortunately I can't find it anywhere, so if you know where I can get it please let me know!

Hope you're all well, becciixx.

Weekly Wishlist #3

Whoops, haven't done this post for a while! I hadn't even noticed, oh dear! But anyway lets get on with it, there's not that much here this time as I feel like the only thing I'm actually craving this week is Primark and as they don't have a website so proves to be a difficultly, but of course I still have a few bits to show you!
1.Mesh Panel Top- I think this t-shirt really hits on the sort luxe trend which I just happen to love, with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and some black heeled sandals you've got yourself a gorgeous outift!
2.Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum- This perfume smells lovely, I'm not even going to been to describe it sooo... 'Crisp top green notes and sparkling Ginger deliver an instantaneous burst of vivid radiance. At the heart, exotic Tiger Orchid and sensual Tea Rose combine for a seductive floral scent. Vibrant base notes with Cedarwood, leaves a seductive aroma on the skin.' It's slightly expensive but I'm willing to make the sacrifice of my money for this.
3.PU Sleeve Cardigan- This jacket is stunning, it's so sophisticated and would add a touch of class to any basic outfit. I love navy and black together, I remember when I was younger there was a huge taboo against wearing blue and black together, I'm so glad everyone got over that!
4.Cotton and Metal Wrapped Necklace- I love a statement necklace and this is perfect. I have a lot of gold necklaces so having a black necklace would make a really nice change to pair with an outfit.I also love the effect that thread or fabric necklaces give.
5.Nude Shoe- I'm a sucker for heels! I have about 30 pairs of heels but I only get to wear them on a rare basis so I am trying to limit myself to buying heels. But these gorgeous lace nude heels just managed to slide their way onto my wishlist. Honestly I think these are the nicest heels ever, and would definitely in my Summer heels collection.
6.Bleach Wash Jeans- Oh jeans, I do have some issues with you, I believe I've already had a rant about this in my 'Wish I Could Wear A Midi' post so I'll save you the bore of hearing that again. But these jeans were a perfect fit for me in petite sizing and I wanted them so badly, unfortunately at the time of trying them on I was moneyless -very sad-.
7.Motel Dungaree Playsuit- Last but definitely not least, is this Paisley blue playsuit, I adore the print of anything like this! It just reminds me of the pattern on china plates, which I obviously seem to like which is weird... I can't wait to get my hands on some dungarees, I might get a cheap pair from Primark first before spending £48 on this one!

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what't on your wishlist this week! Speak soon, becciixx.

Tuesday's Tip #1

Thought this was quite a catchy name for a post so I had to make something of it, who knows how regular this is going to be as I'm not the most knowledgable person so I'm probably going to run out of tips within two posts of this! But I promise to give it my best shot!

 My first tip is going to be on the foundation you chose. Yesterday someone asked me what I was wearing on my face and when I told them they then questioned how I thought to do that. This made me think, has no one else thought of this?! People spend so much money trying to find the perfect foundation but why not just mix a few together?

On my daily routine I either use two or three foundations, by this I don't mean this many layers of foundation, I just mean mixing them together. The first foundation I use is Vichy Derma-Blend Corrective Foundation in Opal, this gives me the coverage I need with just a smidge of a squeeze from the tube. It's a very good foundation with excellent coverage but I wanted something with a bit more radiance. This is where my second foundation comes in, I love  Rimmel Wake-Me-Up Foundation, I had it before I brought Vichy and I really did like it. My problem with it was that I found I was using to much product to get the right amount of coverage, and mixing these two foundations is just perfect!

Usually I stop here with foundation, but if I have fake tanned my face is so pale compared to be body -considering I use medium strength tan and opal with ivory foundation, you can see my issue.- So I decided to make use of a foundation that I brought in the wrong colour, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 120. This adds the perfect about of darkness to the other two foundations.

So to some up this tip, if you have any foundations you don't like try mixing them up with some others and see what you can come up with, it's definitely worth a shot!

I hope this has been good advice, I'm sure the majority of you have already thought of this but I thought it was worth telling you about it, speak soon, becciixx.

Would you rather?- Tag.

Decided I'd do something a little different and do a Tag, I love reading Tag's so I thought it was about time I did one! I found some of these quite quite hard to answer, so if I do ramble on just ignore me, and skip to the juicy bits -wrong choice of word there, I promise this is a clean game of Would you Rather!-

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipstick and lip glosses or lose all of your pallets and eyeshadows?
This was probably the easiest question for me to answer as, to be honest, I don't really use pallets or eyeshadows that often at all so I'd definitely lose those. I said in my Lipstick Collection post that if I don't have some type of colour of my lips I look dead and no one wants they, do they...?

2. Would you rather shave all your hair off or never be able to cut it?
Now, I really want longer hair,but if I could never even have a trim I would not be able to deal with the spilt ends! So I'd definitely go for the skin-head look, and wear some awesome wigs, crack out some pink hair or Barbie blonde!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I would have to say a pink cheek, because as scandalous as this is I do not own any coral blushes! I know, it's awful, I should be killed but I've just never really got round to many any blushes so my only option is a pink cheek. I could go out and by some coral blushes though but I don't even know if it suits me, so it could be a silly mistake.

4. If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or make-up?
This is a really hard question... ermm, I'd have to say clothes I guess. I do love make-up a lot but for some reason I feel less guilty spending a lot of money on it than I do with clothes. So blowing a grand on clothes would be fantastic, I could actually divert from Primark!

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
Well I was thinking eyeliner as lipstick but you don't have much of a selection of colour, you'd have to have like black lips! So I'd say lipstick as eyeliner, you could just use a small brush to apply it rather than using the chunky lipstick.

6. Would you rather shop only at MAC or Sephora?
I think that MAC products are gorgeous -even though I don't own any!- But I don't think I could be limited to just one brand, I'd get too tempted to go to others brands!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
From my answer on the first question I'm sure you can guess that I'd need more than one lip colour! I only really use one eyeshadow on the reg's anyway and that's just a white eyeshadow in the corner of my eye to brighten them up, so this question suits me quite well!

8. Would you rather wear Winter clothes in Summer or Summer clothes in Winter?
I feel the cold quite a lot and I live in England so I barely have a Summer anyway, so I would go for Winter Clothes in Summer. Saying this though my version of winter clothes very rarely includes a coat, for me I probably wouldn't even work up a sweat if I was dressed for Winter in Summer.

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Definitely bright nails, they make me really cheerful. In Autumn and Winter I wear a lot of darker clothes so having a bright nail is really necessary for me.

10. Would you rather give up your favourite lip colour or your favourite eye product?
I feel like this is a bit contradictory to some of my other answers as I would give up my favourite lip colour which is probably, Gypsy by ELF. Just because I need my mascara, it's not even that great but it's my favourite and I have other lip colours I like so, oh well Gypsy!

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony-tail or messy bun?
The messy-bun wins this hands down, I love having a messy bun, I think it looks so sophisticated but casual at the same time! Check out my post on how I create my bun here. Also I'm just not that good at making a pony tail, I just can't get the volume at the top, if you have any tips on this please leave me a comment below.

12. Would you rather never being able to paint your nails or never to use lipgloss?
Easiest question ever! I'd give up lipgloss, I have about 5 lipglosses that hardly ever get used but 150 different polishes. Of course I would chose never using lipgloss. -Sorry that answer seems very aggressive, I'm just passionate about nail polish...-

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all, or sharpie them in everyday?
Lets just go for it, I'd sharpie them in! If I was to find a brown sharpie and sort of smudge it to blend in more with my eyebrows, I think it could work right?

14. Would you rather live without make-up or nail polish?
Oh gosh, this is you can tell from my outburst in question 12, I love painting my nails but I don't even leave the house without a full face of make-up. To be honest at the moment I'm giving my nails a break from polish anyway as they have gone disgustingly orange and I am coping surprising well. So it would have to be living with no nail polish. -Awful question, mean people making me answer that-. *Goes and cries in corner.*

Well I hope you enjoyed this post, and I apologise for my melodramatic ending of the questions and I didn't really cry in the corner...-lie-.

Dr Martens Love.

I having a total obsession with Dr Martens, whether it's boots, flats or bags,I just love them. I wish I had an unlimited supply of money because Dr Martens are not the cheapest of the bunch, but they are copies of them every where, but when it comes to Dr Martens I feel like you can't beat the real thing!

These all so cool, it makes me laugh how my style goes from girly school-girl to grunge-alert! I don't really think I have a style, some days I love a floaty skirt with shoes like the dotty cut-out ones here. Or something like my 'homies' t-shirt with the purple tinted boots, maybe I just like the change it up a little! Enough of my rambling though.. moving on to the items!

1.1460 W Boot- These are the classic DM style boots, just with a bit of a re-vamp on the colour. I love the shimmer on it just takes a different route from the standard matte or shiny finish.
2.Pascal Boot- These are gorgeous, if I had seen these before I brought my white DM's I would probably have just got these instead. I feel like they maybe quite difficult to style as there is just so many colours to them!
3.Castel Boot- I just love flower print on shoes, and on boots it just loves even cooler. The denim coloured fabric just makes it awesome, if you wanted to attempt the double denim look a good start would be pairing a denim shirt with these if your a bit scared of this trend.
4.Grace Boot- These are sooooo cute, I just love the ribbon being used as laces, I think it looks great against the shininess of the boots.
5.Caryen Shoe- I adore these! The cut-out detail is just so cute, pairing these with some white lace socks, a white summer dress and a trilby hat.
6.Mariel Shoe- I would feel like a was back in primary school with these shoes on but I don't even care, I need them in my life. They also have versions with plain black ribbon on the them and I'm not sure which I prefer!?
7.Tara Shoe- Got to have a pair of heels in here somewhere! These just look like brogues with a heel which I think it so cool, the peep toe and the sling back is a really nice touch as well, with some skinny jeans and a really nice jacket these would look gorgeous.
8.11" Leather Satchel- I just love the pattern on this bag, I'm going to say its like a yellow,white and pink leopard print-but it's probably not!- I'd love to have this bag to add a pop of colour to a monochrome or just boring outfit.
9.Leather Holdall- This is such a sophisticated bag, adding this to the outfit with the peep toed heels would just be perfect. I love the burgundy colour and just the smoothness of the bag just makes it look much more expensive than it actually is.

I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe tempted you to invest in some Dr Martens item of your own, as I know this post has definitely tempted me! See you soon, becciixx.

Blogger Issues.

I hope you all like my new layout, I'm actually really happy with it, bit of a change from the regular blogger template. I followed some really simple instructions on how to do all of this that I found on a blog called Lipgloss and Lashes, you can check this post out for yourselves here. This post was really helpful and her blog is great too -her names becky as well so of course I'd like it!- 

The main reason for this post is just to say that unfortunately the 'reply' button doesn't seem to be working, and I just wanted to let you all know that if I don't reply to your comments, I'm not being rude I just can't! I really appreciate all the comments you leave for me, so I wanted to make it clear that I'm not ignoring you!!
Hope you don't think I'm weird for posting about this but oh well, becciixx.

My Lipstick Collection.

I love wearing lipstick, I think I look dead without some colour on my lips! I don't have a massive collection but it's worth a show, I really want to add some MAC and Topshop lip colours as they have some beautiful colours to offer. Give me any suggestions of lipsticks that you think I should try!
Kate for Rimmel, 107- This is a really lovely matte shade, and looks beautiful with really simple eye make-up to keep the attention on the lips.
Elizabeth Arden, Sugar Plum Shimmer- This shade is pretty much the same as a few of the others, but it's my favourite out of the few.
Elf, Gypsy- I love this colour, it's probably my favourite colour of the bunch it's a matte berry shade.
Rimmel, Sugarplum- I don't really use this one as it's very similar to the Elizabeth Arden one but just a bit purpler.  
MUA, ?- Now this lipstick is the brightest of the bunch, hot pink jut looks so good on the lips. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of this.
Rimmel, Rose Passion- Can't beat a red lipstick, I definitely need a bit of variety on my reds.
Natural Collection, Berry Blush- I'm not a massive fan of this one, I don't think it matches my skin-tone  very well., but it's still a lovely colour.
Elf, Classy- This is the same formula is the other Elf lipstick, which I personally think is really nice, the colour is gorgeus too!
Natural Collection, Pink Orchid- I love this one, this is the lightest of the pinks that I have and the shimmer to it is lovely.
MUA, Juicy- This is a beautiful colour, if you put it on over a red lipstick, the colours look beautiful together.
Versace,?- I really don't wear this one at all the golden tone does not suit me, but it's gorgeous still.
These are swatched in the order they are shown in the previous picture, my camera had a hissy fit at this point for some reason, so sorry the pictures are not fantastic. I made a rookie mistake and had already finished my make-up before this post so I couldn't show them on my lips or I would have ruined my make-up! 
I really don't have that many lipsticks, I should invest in some others! Maybe you'll see a haul featuring just lipsticks.Hope you're all well, becciixx.

Pretty Pallets.

I have noticed recently that pallets or compacts -whatever you want to call them- are getting prettier and prettier. With intricate flower designs etched into them, or just a mix of beautiful colours, they are just becoming gorgeous. They make me want to buy them just so I can look at them, and if I did buy them I would never want to use them in case I ruined them. So it's sort-of a catch-22, I think that's the right saying...
But anyway I'm not going to go into lots of detail about them as the pictures will tell you all you need to know and I have never used any of these before so I cannot review them. I just really wanted to show you just how beautiful some of them are and I feel like so much work has gone into just one product, but I'm not actually sure how much effort it takes to do!
Looking at how many products I have to put into this post, I think there's a slight chance I have gone overboard. But oh well! You can never go overboard when it comes to make-up!





These are all so beautiful, I put this ones together as they have embossed patterns on them, from flowers to birds. I just think they are so beautiful to look at, my favourite is the one by Aerin, the blend of the colours as well as the flower pattern just makes it so pretty. The Sisley compact is also really beautiful, the little pieces of glitter are so pretty.
1.Aerin 2.Mac 3.Paul & Joe 4.Art Deco 5.Sisley 6.Elizabeth Arden





These compacts are just so pretty, it's more the colours and logos etched on the power that drew my attention to these. The Clarins Aztec sort-of pattern and the Nars 3-D effect with boxes are both just so cool! The colours in the Bobbi Brown compact are just beautiful, I really wish I owned it!

Hope you found these as beautiful as I did! Leave me a comment if you know of any other pretty pallets, becciixx.

Summer Scents.

I'm not someone to care about what scent I wear throughout the year but when it comes to Summer I do want a flowery or fruity sort-of smell. I will still wear all the perfumes I have but if I fancy feeling really Summery then I will crack out one of these Summer fragrances! I'm not the best at describing scents so I will try to find the description that actually comes with them -feel like this is cheating slightly, but my description will not help!-
Now whenever I tell people that this perfume is by Britney Spears, they turn their nose up at it and I feel the need to defend it endlessly. But honestly this is probably one of the nicest perfumes that I own,  it's called Midnight Fantasy and it reminds me a lot of Alien by Theirry Mulger but Summery-er  -see, awful attempt at explaining! Boots describes the fragrance as this: 'An intoxicating elixir of luscious fruits that invites you into a mysterious realm of temptation and intrigue.' Depending on what size bottle you get the prices same to range from about £15 to £25.
 I'm sure most of you will recognise this bottle as Flower By Kenzo, it's such a beautiful flowery scent.  It honestly smells gorgeous, whenever I wear it I get so many compliments on it, and a little goes a long way! Flower is a vibrant, fresh and sensual fragrance. The key ingredients are Bulgarian Rose, wild hawthorn and vanilla. This ranges from about £30 to £70 -which is slightly more expensive than Britney Spears!-
I only have a miniature bottle of this which is sad as I got it in a multi-pack of Theirry Mulger perfumes. I love Alien, but I'm not a fan of Angel but Womanity is more floral than Alien is. Womanity is described as a tangy velvety fragrance on a salty-fig wood base note. These seems to vary a lot in price, but it seems to be around £30 to £50.
Last up we have a tester, which is just so awful as I only have like 2 sprays left, so I'm savering it! I really want to get the full bottle, but Marc Jacobs perfumes are a bit pricey so I will have to wait to come into some money! The bottle for Dot is just adorable, I love it! It's described as 'incorporating red berries combined with pitaya fruit, known also as dragon fruit. The juicy and exciting opening is followed by a floral trio composed of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, while a base closes with a trail of coconut water, vanilla, driftwood and sensual musk.' -Slightly long-winded description there but oh well-. It ranges from about £40 to £65.

Homies and Leather.

This lookbook is based on the Homies t-shirt that I showed in my previous post. If you haven't seen that then, I shall inform you that I go this top from Camdem but I know that you can get them on ebay for around the same price, depending on which seller you go to.
I really wanted to increase the indie vibe of the whole outfit, so I paired it with a wet look skater skirt and some converse style trainers with lacey socks. This may not sound that indie, but it really worked, paired with the 'NannyState' hat it just makes it so incredibly cool! You could even wear this with a black bowler hat which would just add to the whole individuality of the outfit.
I kept my jewellery quite simplistic but still attention grabbing at the same time, the bracelet with the bright studs really stands out against the whole monochrome look. Also the spiked necklace adds another layer to the otherwise fairly simple t-shirt.
