Patterned Trousers

25 May 2014

Top: H&M
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

Recently this has been my favourite outfit so I thought I'd share it with you all! 
The top and pants are both from h&m, I'm loving h&m at the moment I think they have some fab pieces at the moment that are so affordable! These pants were £12.99 and the top was £10 I think was a bargain! 
Personally I love the patterned pants trend and I already have two pairs and I'm sure I'll buy many more to add to my collection! I particularly like these because there black and white because I think you can wear them in winter with boots or in summer with sandals or shoes! I love this top as it's an off the shoulder top that's textured but you can't really see from this picture this is also very versatile! I think this would look lovely with skirts too as it's very fitted! 
I managed to pick up the shoes whilst Dorothy Perkins had there 25% off so I managed to get these for  around £16 which I think is quite reasonable! 

What's your favourite trend at the moment? 


22 May 2014

Recently I was sent this jumpsuit from WalG, it's took me a while to get this post up because it's the first outfit post I've ever done and I was quite nervous to post this. 
WalG are a online store selling a range of women's fashion, they have gorgeous dresses and playsuits that would suit a range of different people. There delivery service is also amazing and very quick, with no hassle at all! 
This jumpsuit comes in a couple of different colours including Navy, Green and Black and is priced at £36.I'm genuinely in love with this, it's one of the most comfiest things ever! This is available I'm sizes small medium and large and I think would suit anyone as this band across the middle would draw attention to your waist.
You can also dress this up with a pair of heels and a statement necklace and clutch for the night or pair with sandals are some flats for the day. Overall I would definitely recommend purchasing from WalG if you want quality clothing with no hassle.

Fuse Gel Nail

11 May 2014

Fuse gelnamel is a new range by sensationail, this is a gel nail polish but this must be used with the UV light, you can buy the UV light in a starter kit which includes the light and one polish this is avaliable from boots and is £35. There are 12 different colours to chose from, the one I have above is the Elec-tric or treat, I think this colour is perfect for the spring and summer it's the perfect coral colour! 
I applied two coats to this but it is fine with just one! This is very easy to apply it does seem quite thick but that's probably because it's a gel consistency once applied it dries very quickly using the UV light and gives a glossy finish.
I haven't had it on for very long so I can't really comment if it lasts very long but I will definitely do an update! So far I love this the UV light does seem expensive but in the long run is worth it and I think the for £15 a bottle it's very reasonable co code ring this is gel nails. But so far I would defiantly recommend this anyone. 
Ill do an update soon! 
Let me know what you think!

I thought I'd share a recipe I made using these ingredients, I made one of my favorites, brownies using the Dr.Oetker dark chocolate I got in my Degusta box so here goes!
You will need: 
4 Eggs
65g Plain Flour
1 Tsp Backing Powder
80g Cocoa Powder
360g Caster Sugar 
200g Dark Chocolate 
250g Butter 

It's very simple to make these, I used Viviannas recipe she posted on her channel if you want to watch her video I will leave her link below, if you dont know who she is you should check her out.

Before you start preheat your oven to 180C
1. Add chocolate and butter together and melt (I used microwave) 
2. Then add all the dry ingredients together (flour, backing powder, cocoa powder and caster sugar) 
3. Then add the chocolate and butter mix to the dry ingredients 
4. Crack eggs in a separate bowl and wisk
5. Add eggs to the rest of the mix
6. Add to lined backing tin 
7. Leave in oven for around 35 minutes
8. Leave to cool for around 30 minutes

Here are two photos of what the mixture should look like once mixed and what it should look like when its in the backing tin.

First Impressions: Elegant Touch

7 May 2014

I've never done a first impressions before but I thought I would for this product as it's fairly new on the market and though it would be good to compare against when I've tried these out. 
Straight away I thought these were a fab idea, who wouldn't? The idea of perfect looking nails without any glue needed at all! Each pack contains 24 pre glued nails in 10 different sizes so should be prefect for everyone. This also comes with a prep wipe for before applying the nails and a handy nail file. 
These are applied In a Few simple steps: wash nails with soppy water, dry thoroughly and clean with prep wipe. Peel of the protective film and simply press them down on your nail. How easy does this sound? Personally I think this is just a fab idea, and I really hope that they live up to my expectations because these definitely sound like they are going to be a favourite product. 
The colours shown above are Polished Neon Chick and Trend Peach Ombré but the is a wide variety of colours for everyone! 
I will post a full review of these soon so be sure to keep a look out. 


Grey Ray

4 May 2014


I very kindly got sent this stationary to review from the lovely people at Grey Ray.
This may look like a pen but it's actually a pencil, personally I think this is a fab idea! Surely I'm not the only one who's pencil is always snapping in my bag so this is the perfect solution, this comes I a variety of colours too but it just so happened that I got as this in one of my favourite colours! 
You may be wondering what the other things are, I was confused too. But this these are actually pencil caps, these are meant to protect the end of your pencil and stop them from snapping so these are another alternative to the other pencil and you get a lot of caps in one pack that are all different colours. 
Grey Ray are a company based in Thiland but the delivery was still so fast so I was very impressed by this. Grey Ray also have a number of other products that you should check out including sketch books. I would definitely recommend ordering from them of you love there products (which I'm sure you do) and you want great service!

Born Pretty Store

29 April 2014

Born Pretty store is a new website that I have discovered they sell a lot of different things but I particularly love the jewellery section they sell lots of rings which are $1 or 60p! Yes 60p, how cheap is that?! My favourite ring is this anchor ring shown above I think this is so cute and is so similar to rings I've saw whilst shopping and is no where near 60p! 

They also have a number of different necklaces which range from £2-4 and are so cheap considering the price you would pay in retail stores! One of my favourite necklaces on the website is the flower necklace shown above I think this would look perfect for spring summer to dress up and outfit and look so cute!

This bracelet is gorgeous in my opinion and i think it looks so much more expensive than it is, I think this would be the perfect statement with a outfit especially any plain outfits.This was around £3 which I think is a complete bargain!

They also offer fee shipping to the UK, so I seriously suggest you check them out as I think it is well worth the price and they are such a good website. 

I also have a 10% off code that you can all use: HYYT10

In The Navy

23 April 2014
                                                                  Bag: Primark
                                                            Shoes: Dorothy Perkins 

Just thought I'd share two of my new favourite things at the minute, as you can probably guess I'm a bit fan of navy! Firstly I got this bag from Primark this is a navy and white zig zag print and I just fell in love with his as soon as I saw this! This can be a clutch bag or this comes with a strap inside that you can also use which I think will be perfect for summer. This is also quite big inside which is always a bonus and I picked this up for £10 I think it's a Bargin! 
I got these shoes from dorothy perkins these say there black but I think it's slightly a navy blue colour when put with ethier colour I think it looks that colour and these have a white base but it isn't very thick which I think is good I think these were around £22 but I managed to get them when they had 30% so I got them for around £16 which I think is such a good price as I think they look quite expensive! 
I'm loving navy at the minute, let me know what your loving. 


The Tuck Shop

21 April 2014


The Tuck Shop is a sweet shop based in Manchester selling American sweets and the good old Traditional sweets. They have recently launched there new website so I thought id talk you through the website.
I would recommend buying from this website (I'm not being payed or sponsored to say this) I  honestly think they have such a good selection of sweets available including my favourite american sweets: M&M's, Cheetos, Skittles and Twizzlers and my favourite Traditional sweets:  Pear Drops, Sour Cherries and Bon Bons.
The Tuck shop has a very simple and easy layout that is easy to navigate around, the menu system enables you to select the type of sweets you are looking for e.g. American or Traditional where you then are shown a number of different options within these categories such as Cereals, Hard sweets, Soft Sweets and Soda.
On the right hand side of the website there is then a simple navigation bar as shown above where you can login or create an account, checkout, view your basket, view your account, search the website and change your currency.  You are also able to pay via PayPal which is always a bonus. 
Overall I would recommend order from The Tuck Shop as there is a wide range of treats for everyone and can browse the website very easily.
