This gorgeous kimono can be worn with lots of different outfits, in the day, the evening, on the beach etc. I don’t mean to keep on about my wedding and honeymoon but this is the ideal piece to take on holiday. You need something you can wear with several different outfits and something that is light to pack and a colour that will go with anything!
In the day it can be paired with jeans and a tshirt
Then in the evening with trousers and a vest
Or to cover you up on the beach!
It is the Pussycat lace fringe kimono from New Look and you can find it here. I am extremely tempted to see if they have one similar in white!
I am desperately trying to get some new clothes for my honeymoon later in the year. I came across www.ark.co.uk and they have a beautiful range called hearts and bows.
I think this dress is stunning. I usually wear a size 8 but I wanted this to have a baggy look so went for a 10. The detail on the lace really sets it off.
The dress is a perfect length and is great to wear day or night, with or without tights, with flats or heels. I really like the cut out shoulders and the summer needs to hurry up as I can’t wait to wear it again! You can buy it here or look at the rest of the range.
Not something I would usually blog about but wanted to share with you this cool phone accessory website I recently came across www.mobilefun.co.uk. I have quite a few new products to share with you!
First up is this pink jelly case, I love the simple design and it is stylish as well as being practical. I find jelly cases easy to put on and the colour is quite vibrant.
If your phone is always running out of battery then this next product is for you. I now won’t go anywhere with this in my bag! This easy to use portable charger is perfect size to carry around and also has a built in torch.
The portable charger can be used with a standard charging cable or with one of these crazy amazing beaded bracelet cables! I think this product is a fab idea and have never seen anything like it. It’s a charging cable that connects up to be a stylish beaded bracelet!
And whilst I sit at my desk to blog or do my make up then this phone stand is perfect!
I did also get a new phone screen protector but my other half ended up using it as he needed a new one and is always dropping his phone we decided this was better for him. It’s a very thin sheet of glass and it doesn’t even look like you have a protector on, no bubbles, nothing, just a perfect piece of glass.
So a few years ago I had lilac hair and after looking back at old pictures I wanted it back. I struggled before to find the right shade and also find the right product that didn’t fade after one wash. This time round I have tried the Knight&Wilson range called Colour Freedom that is available from superdrug here.
I opted for Mystic Purple along with what is marketed as a Pasteliser(it helps dilute the colour if you want a pastel shade). Both products come in a good sized tube and RRP at £6.99 each. They have a wide range of colours and I will probably end up trying another one, maybe pink next time?!
When using the dye with the pasteliser I mixed them into a bowl and the great thing is, you can create so many different shades with one dye depending on what ratio you use. You can have anything from vibrant purple to a very pale lilac. You can see on the box it shows what different shades you can create.
Both products smell lovely and they both contain argan oil and shea butter so they leave your hair feeling and looking smooth and smelling great. I usually can’t stand the smell of dye and always worry it will damage my hair but with these products you don’t have to worry.
As you can see before my hair was a faded out lilac/grey and the colour took to it very well. I used approx 1 part dye to 15 parts pasteliser.
If you have been debating whether to do something different with your hair, try this range and create your own custom colour 🙂
So over the next two weeks I am taking part in the slim fast challenge to help shed a few pounds coming up to my wedding and honeymoon. I know I am not very big to start with so please don’t think you need to diet if you are my size, I am purely doing this for myself so I will be happy and comfortable.
My aim is to lose only a few pounds from my waist/hips so I can feel happy with myself because this is the heaviest I have been and with my wedding this year I just really want to feel and look my best.
Over the next two weeks I will be eating slim fast snacks as well as their meal replacement options. They over a wide variety of options and I will let you all now my thoughts when I have completed the 2 week slim fast challenge.
