I love Embroidery, A wish List!

embroidered-wishlist Embroidery is a huge trend this year and slowly but surely it’s has been sweeping into every look. It’s rapidly becoming one of my favourite trends as it’s such an easy one to master. I thought that I would gather some of my favourite items to show you. 1. This fully embroidered dress from River Island is really pretty. It has so much intricate detail yet it still looks amazing and it’s so flattering to wear too. It would be perfect for a date night or maybe even a wedding too. 2. Dresses are some of my favourite items to wear at the moment mainly because they go with everything especially a fab pair of heeled ankle boots and a cool bag. This black stud and embroidered dress is subtle yet stylish. It’ll be perfect for the Spring season with a denim jacket or if you’re feeling brave a leather jacket too. 3. I love this shirt from Topshop. It’s subtle being white but it packs a punch with two trends, with the feminine bell sleeves and scalloped detailing down the front. The embroidery is so pretty, this top will go with everything. Come on, what are you waiting for? Buy this one and work those Spring styles. It’s gorgeous. 4. I really love this slouchy embroidered sweatshirt from Warehouse. It’s casual but cool and it will create the most amazing up to date look teamed with a mini or a midi skirt and heels. 5. There a lot of embroidered bags out there at the moment but this cute black one from Miss Selfridge is the bees knees. It will go with so many outfits and will be the star of the show too. 6. The jean look with embroidery is very much a classic 60’s look and it’s coming back larger than life. I love the lovely designs especially these embroidered Jamie Jeans from Topshop and although you’d have to be careful what you teamed it with, you’d be right on trend and everyone will want these jeans too. 7. I love a simple casual look updated with embroidery as it brings the look right up to date. My favourites are these silver trainers with bright pink embroidery from New Look. They’ve very understated yet so pretty! Are you loving the embroidered look this season too? Let me know in the comments below. Happy Shopping!

January Favourites!

IMG_4582 IMG_4598 At the beginning of the month I had an appointment at my local Aveda where they looked at my hair and scalp and gave me some advice on my hair. They suggested that I started using this balancing shampoo. I’ve been using it ever since and it’s really helped with my scalp, the sensitivity of the skin and the look on my hair. It’s looking fab. I was suggested some other products too so I’m looking forward to going back and buying soon. IMG_4594 I’m not someone that usually wears a very heavy base/foundation so I like to stick to light coverage product.  This BB Skin Detox Fluid  from Clarins is one that I’ve been using for the full month. I only use a small amount, just two to three pumps, it lasts all day and looks amazing. It also as an SPF 25 in too. Mega bonus! I’ll be doing more of a review in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the site. IMG_4593 I bought this lipstick/lipshine is from the Rosie for Autograph  ( Marks and Spencers)line. I bought it just after Christmas and I fell in love with the name of it initially as it’s called  Love of my life which very apt for the time of year.  When I looked at the colour I fell for it even harder and realised that I just had to buy it and I’ve worn it every day since. It’s lovely layered over the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Amoureux and it really lasts. My most favourite thing about it is that the lipstick itself is so moisturising even when you have chapped lips which I have this week due to being ill, it helps lock in that moisture and soften them. IMG_4587I was sent some beautiful hand creams from Crabtree and Evelyn. I love the hand creams as they’re thick and so moisturising. My favourite of the month is this Pear and Pink Magnolia ultra moisturising hand therapy as it has such a pretty yet subtle smell. It’s also been great for my hands and nails which have been in some need of a little TLC. IMG_4601 I bought this Armani scent Si in the January sales and I’m so glad that I did. It really is a beautiful fragrance and it’s one that I’ve been wearing a loth throughout the month too.  It’s perfect for the time of year, subtle yet fruity and it has floral notes to it. It’s one that you have to smell if you see it for sure. IMG_4584 I seem to be allergic to every hand wash ever except this brand Bayliss and Harding. They recently brought out this limited edition fragrance in Pink Prosecco and Cassis  to my local Sainsbury’s and I’ve loved using it the whole month. The bottle itself with the rose gold accents is beautiful too. IMG_4445 I’ve also loved the combination of the leopard print snood that I received for Christmas and this beautiful burgundy jumper from Miss Selfridge. It’s a warming combination thats also very soft and it’s made me feel extra snuggly when under the weather this month too. What things have you been loving this month and will you be jumping to buy any of these items? Let me know in the comments below. Happy Shopping!

Castle on the Hill & an OOTD!

Warehouse. It’s warm and goes with everything. The jumper is a gorgeous warm bergundy jumper from Miss Selfridge. I love this colour in Winter and it seems to go well with the jacket too. The tabby striped snood that I’m wearing has been a definite fixture to my Winter wardrobe. It was a Christmas present from my auntie and her family that she bought in a small boutique near where she lives. It’s actually one of  my favourite clothing items at the moment. I teamed this combo with a high waisted denim skirt from Oasis which is currently in the sale. It has a retro Sargent Pepper military feel to it as it has six buttons going up it but that are mostly hidden here. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this a lot in the summer too. I teamed this with my black ankle boots, some black leggings and my DKNY bag which is never far away from me. What are your wardrobe favourites at the moment. Let me know in the comments below. Happy Shopping! IMG_4445 IMG_4443 IMG_4435 IMG_4430 IMG_4428

Emily Hearts Denim

I really love this denim and lace shirt from Miss Selfridge.It is £34 and totally amazing and what you can’t see is that the whole of the back of the shirt is lace so it is very cooling for the spring/summer and oh so stylish. I really love denim dresses too. This dress is very light weight, has an amazing pattern and is sooo cute. Again from Miss Selfridge at a pricey £42 but I think it will be worth it for that nicer weather. Do you love denim, what’s your favourite denim piece? Happy Shopping.
