Seven Products for Summer!

The shops are full of colourful products and I’m loving navigating Summer fashion now the weather is finally starting to get a little hotter. Stripes and spots are seeing their time once again and are some of the biggest trends this season.  I’m loving finding little gems to wear. I thought I would gather some of my favourite pieces that I’ve seen in the shops recently.

  1. First up is this gorgeous bright yellow wrap dress from Topshop. The short sleeves are slightly longer than normal but if you love to hide your upper arms in Summer this is a dress to try out. The length of skirt is key this season as it’s a really flattering to wear and the bright colour suits so many people. It will even brighten your mood too. Team it with a pair of trainers and a denim jacket or heels and a belt for the ultimate cool look.
  2. My second pick is this really gorgeous Y.A.S Dot and Stripe Ruffle Dress I love a shorter style dress or skirt in the summer and this Y.A.S choice looks so cute. It has both spot and stripes which work together well and the ruffle detail makes this dress especially playful. Team it with some converse or vans and a cross body bag for a funky vibe.
  3. Rompers or Playsuits are great for the warmer weather, and this Tropical Map Print Romper from And Other Stories is a winner. Such a pretty colour and I love a fun print in the summer too. Team this with some sandals or mules for the day time or a heel for the evening with a jacket to keep the cold at bay.
  4. Culottes are huge this season and if your searching for the perfect pair, these Lost Ink Wide Leg polka dot trousers might just be the ones for you. Team them with a lightweight jumper and a pair of wrap around wedges  and you’ll be right on trend.
  5. The summer season isn’t complete without the perfect red dress and I love a long wrap around one. It’s perfect for an evening out or for a special occasion. Curved Hem Maxi Dress from And Other stories is super cute with the ditsy print. Team it with black accessories, handbag and heels and maybe a leather jacket to pop around your shoulders for when the night get chillier.
  6. Straw bags are gorgeous and the accessory to have with you this summer. I spotted this super cute large embroidered circle bag in Accessorize. The bright embroidery will brighten any outfit! Team it with a denim skirt, floaty top and sandals for the perfect Summertime look.
  7. A great pair of dressy heels for summer should include a block heel. They don’t sink into grass garden parties and they’re a lot my comfy than your avarage court shoe. My final summer pick are these gorgeous Kurt Geiger Burlington Shoes   , they’re stylish and will go with anything. They also come in a red which is great for a pop of colour in an outfit.

What I got for Christmas 2016!

img_4384 img_4386 So these items are a few from my mum that  love. I’ve been going on about the Stella McCartney Pop fragrance and I actually ended up buying it for my mum too. Great mind! The DKNY perfume is one of my all time favourites and so i was very happy to get this. And my mum knows me well as a pretty lipstick and nail polish is very me. img_4396 Next are a few cute presents from my sister in law. I was really spoilt by her as they are all from Ted Baker. The smaller items are firstly a gorgeous deep red lippie and nail polish set. I’m really looking forward to saving these for a special occasion to wear them as it’s a really gorgeous colour and will really add to an outfit. Things that I really love is a fab hand cream and nail file so these ones are perfect. The print is so cute too. Lastly is this fab checkered Ted Baker shopper and I love these bags as they’re so useful especially in the summer so this one will be getting a lot of use. img_4387 My in-laws really spoilt me this year too and I thought that I would just choose a selection of the things. They know that I’m a blogger so when I opened this little E plate my first thought was, ooo this is very instagram-able. The gold is so pretty. I have Thomas Sabo bracelet, and so a little tortoise charm was perfect to remind me of my recent holiday to Mexico. It’s so cute. I also received a little Cath Kidston Lip butter and hand cream set. So pretty! img_4400 My dad and sister bought me a coat from Warehouse that I asked for. I love the mottled blue and black effect that it has and it’s really warm. It also goes really well with the faux fur snood I got from my aunty. I received a little Michael Kors card holder too as I never have enough room for wallets or purses in evening bags so I really needed something cute for them to go in.  I really love this. img_4390   Lastly I received a few amazing gifts from my husband. We actually almost bought each other similar things too which is strange. First up is this candle from Neom. I’ve been after one of these for so long as it smells incredible. I can’t wait to start burning it. Next up is this a fragrance I adore from Jo Malone. Peony and Blush Suede is such a pretty floral fragrance. Every time I go past my local shop I always pop in and smell it. I always use them up so fast though as I love the JM fragrances so much. I’m saving this one a little more though. I’d seen this cute little E key ring in Accessorize recently, I always loose my keys so it was so cool to get this. Perfect! My big present from my husband this year was this super cute black Michael Kors evening bag.  I’ve been to a few events recently and had to borrow a friends black bag to go with my outfit so my husband chose a stunning one for future events. It’s made of saffiano leather which means it’s really durable and doesn’t scratch easily.  It has space for a few cards, a bit of make up and my phone. What more could a girl need. What did you get for christmas? Let me know in the comments below. Happy

Christmas Wish List!

christmas-wish-list   I’ve written a few gift guides now but I thought that I would collate some of the things that I’m hoping to see under the Christmas tree in a wish list. The first is an amazing scent from Jo Malone. Every time I go into the shop I find another fragrance I love, they just have so many scents and they all layer so well too. My favourites at the moment are Wood Sage and Sea Salt, Mimosa and Cardamon, Peony and Blush Suede , Blue Agave and Cacao and Velvet Rose and Oud. So yummy smelling! I love Kate Spade and I love the collections that she brings out. The most recent is this gorgeous bunny rabbit set and this phone case with bunny ears with the quote “I’m all ears”. is the cutest. It’s relatively inexpensive and would be fab for a stocking filler. Next up is this amazing smart watch from Guess. This phone does so much. I’m really into running and fitness at the moment and it has a fitness tracker, you can also connect your phone so you can get your emails and texts on your watch which comes in very handy if your at work and also on a run. It also does so much more too. The watch itself looks amazing too. This Karen Millen jacket is so cool. The shade of red is beautiful and is a military design not overly so it’s so stylish. It’s warm and would look great with most of the clothes in my wardrobe for this time of year. Health and Fitness is on my mind quite a lot of the time and so the Apple watch is a perfect addition. It works in much the same way as the Guess watch as it’s great for tracking your steps, health and fitness, keeps your messages and emails are at your finger tips, and it has much more besides. It also looks amazing too. You can’t have too much make up and this Dolce Vita palette from Charlotte Tilbury is one that I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. The brown and glitter colours of the palette are quite something. They’re easy to wear, they blend delicately and the main glitter shade can be packed on to the eye lid for an ultra festive look. Perfect! I saw this pretty and delicate Rose Gold Organic ring from Accessorise recently in store. It reminds me of the Monika Vinader River ring . It’s so stylish and sits beautifully on the hand with a twinkle. It also is great for stacking rings too, a trend that is becoming bigger in the past few years. Finally a Neom candle, a brand that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge herself has. This specific candle is Pine, Myrrh and Lime and smells devine and so do all of the candles especially the Christmas collection. One of my other favourite candles is Maroccan Blush Rose, Lime and Black Pepper. It actually smells of Turkish Delight, a smell that is so yummy. What is on your Christmas Wish List? Let me now in the comments below. Happy Shopping!

Emily Hearts Accessorize Bag

  I am loving Accessorize at the moment, there are so many cute things which is slightly dangerous for me because I just want to spend all of my money there. Eeek! I fell in love with this gorgeous Annabel Laminate Bag at £35 and so yep I bought it. Eeek! It has a gorgeous pattern that could pass as a Cath Kidston print. There are three pockets which are spacious, a bright pink inside, and the normal phone pockets and inner zip pockets. I love these kind of messenger bags, so I will keep you updated as whether it is a great bag to use. Happy Shopping!
