Outfit of the Day - In The Navy (feat Joe Browns)





 
Jumper - Joe Browns*
Jeans - Primark
Worker boots - Cannot remember for the life of me sorry pals
Ring - H&M
Nail polish - OPI Barefoot in Barcelona

Ever since the postman arrived with my Joe Browns parcel in hand, I've been wearing this 'Best of British' jumper non-stop. Well not literally, but you get my drift. It had been a while since I went for something stripey but it looked so slouchy and comfy that, when I saw it on the website, I couldn't resist. And it was a good job I couldn't as it is ridiculously cosy, so perfect for chilly days. It's lovely and soft (50% cotton and 50% acrylic) so my skin doesn't make a fuss whilst the 3 buttons on the back are so cute. I always like a nice bit of detailing or embellishment!

Although the stripes are navy, I donned my black jeans and blue (ish) worker boots and crossed my fingers that I could somehow 'work' the navy/black mishmash! Still unsure as to how successful that was! I cannot get enough of the jeans in Primark at the moment; they fit my awkward shaped legs really well, seem like great quality and, best of all, are cheap as chips.

And as you will have probably noticed, I am still obsessed with stone rings. I picked this one up from good old H&M for a few pounds and I really like it with nude nail polish.

Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit review

The Burt's Bees ever-expanding collection of Refreshing Lip Balms is expanding again. We've drooled over Honey (good), Acai Berry (good), Mango (so good) and Pomegranate (interesting...) but this time we've got a platter of Pink Grapefruit to devour. When this news reached me, I was stupidly excited; Burt's Bees lip balms have become a staple in my everyday makeup bag and even better, grapefruit is one of my favourite scents on this earth.



True to Burt's Bees form, the ingredients are 100% natural whilst the sprinkling of sunflower and coconut oil makes the balm suuuuper soft. The balm applies gorgeously, the scent lingers for ages, and, like all the Burt's Bees balms I've owned, the product itself seems to go on forever so you won't need to rush out to buy more in too much of a hurry. This £3.69 wonderfully-smelling stick of goodness is honestly fantastic no matter which scent or flavour you pick but this Pink Grapefruit number is definitely going to stay a staple for me for many months to come.

The new Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit is available to buy right this very second on the Burt's Bees website but I'm sure you'll see it in your local Boots sometime soon.

NOTD: Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows

This week I've had stacks of work, loads of rehearsals (for a musical I'm in at the end of March) and my first set of AS results. It's been a bit of a week to say the least! So in between all that and a bit of catching up on sleep, I decided to paint my nails to boost my spirits!




I used Barry M Buzz (a promotional Barry M polish which The Sun/Superdrug were giving away some time last year), BeautyUK Jade and W7 Neon Yellow, Neon Orange and Neon Pink. The Barry M polish is a funny sort of berry colour which I just happened to have hanging around (sorry Barry M, I do love you really) but I've been really loving my BeautyUK and W7 polishes recently and I thought I'd combine them all as I couldn't pick just one! #beautybloggerproblems

And of course, if you're going to have 5 different colours on your nails, you may as well top them off with a sprinkle of glitter right?! I used my trusty bottle of Wet N Wild in Kaleidoscope.

What do you think? Do you ever go for rainbow nails or do you stick to one colour?

LFW Street Style AW12

During LFW a few weeks ago, I took a trip up to London to see a show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout but while I was there I thought it would be rude not to stop by at Somerset House! As the host of London Fashion Week, this was and always is the place to be for the best LFW street style.

There were models looking sharp, editors looking swish and fashionistas looking, well, fashionable!
