OOTD β€’ 23rd September 2017

Can’t believe its been a week since my birthday, this time last week Cheryl & I were having brunch at Vinoteca, near Kings Cross.

I didn’t know what to wear, as the weather on Friday was lovely in Peterborough and London but looking at the weather for Sat 23rd, it said it would be sunny and cloudy being 20c, so I was going to layer up but then I didn’t want to take a big bag or be carrying anything so I opted for lightweight trousers, bodysuit, leather jacket, lightweight scarf and flat leopard print shoes.

All what I am wearing apart from the scarf and bag are from New Look I love this look, and I felt confident and comfortable as over the last year I have lost over 3 stone so I wanted to show off my new figure! I wanted to go for a Smart Casual look, which I think I pulled off.

I think the scarf and Micheal Kors bag just finish the outfit off, its quite a simple but effective look.  This definatly a look I would wear again, as I have these trousers in black and a grey and black speckle effect.  They also do them in  a Burgundy which I am hoping to get also.

Hope you have enjoyed this post 😊

New Pandora Ring πŸ’ο»Ώ

I got given a voucher for my birthday last year 2016 from my friend, I knew I had it in my purse but I forgot about it.  I looked in my purse last week to check the expiry date it was only valid for a year so it had to be used by 17th Sept 2017!!!

Lucky enough I got paid on the 14th so I had a quick scan on the website and noted down some I liked before going to my local store.. I liked 6 rings in total, ranging from Β£20 in the sale to Β£60.  Out the 6 they had 2 in in the size I wanted, one priced at Β£45 and one at Β£30.  I brought the ‘Luminous Droplet Ring’ which was Β£30 so only had to put a little extra towards it..

It does look pretty on, so I am happy with my choice ☺️. While I was in store I did try another one on with this ring, called ‘Dazzling’ which looks beautiful. Dazzling is priced at Β£45 so this is going to be my next Pandora purchase, the Dazzling ring is pictured below..

Hope you have enjoyed this post 😘

New Nails πŸ’…πŸΌο»Ώ

A week ago today I had my nails redone. Had bout 3/4 weeks growth on my old nails and only managed to pick off the gel varnish on one nail.  Go me.. πŸ™‹πŸΌ

I had the idea of having Rose Gold on my nails, so I went for a Rose Gold Glitter ‘Rosie’ Magpie Glitter on my ring & middle finger and a nude pink on the others.  I love catching the glitter nails in the light ☺️

Well hope you liked this post?

VB x Estee Lauder

After seeing on Instagram that Victoria Beckham has brought out a makeup range with EstΓ©e Lauder, I kinda want to buy the eyeshadow palette and the mascara.. Will call it a birthday treat πŸ₯‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ.

I scrolled thru EstΓ©e Lauder’s Instagram account to have a look at what her range is like, I love the colours in the eyeshadow palette. Some lovely rich warm colours which can be worn for a subtle look or a dramatic smokey eyes. Here are some pics of the palette I love.

I’ve also taking a liking to some blushers/highlighter aswell.. I’m not sure what the price range is like as I’ve not quite got that far, but I would like to treat myself if they aren’t too badly priced! Would be a birthday present To me From me ❀️❀️.

What are your thoughts on the new range by VB??

Hope you enjoyed the post.

Hair Care ~ Shampoo & Conditioner ~ BrandsΒ 

Everyone has a faithful Shampoo and Conditioner they use.  Over the years I’ve tried a number of brands from Fructis, Herbal Essence, Pantene, Avon, Alberto Balsam as well as others that I can’t remember!!  At the time of using the shampoo and conditioner I found it a good brand to use, made my hair, soft, shiny, clean and made it smell nice too, but after a while of using the products it starts to disagree with my hair, so I then have to find another band to use.

I’ve used L’Oreal for as long as I can remember, always used the red bottles for coloured hair as I’ve either had highlights or lowlights.  And every time I’ve washed it using the shampoo and conditioner it beings out the colour more, also makes my hair so soft, shiny and looking good πŸ™‹πŸΌ.   I recently had some T section foil highlights put in as I hadn’t had any colour in my hair for well over a year and I thought my hair was looking but dull, I went to a local salon as they had a half price offer on.

After having your hair done at a salon, you can never get it to how they do it which is annoying, I managed to get away with another 2 days out of my hair before I washed it πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. I noticed that my hair felt different, hard to explain but it didn’t feel like it usually does after using the same shampoo and conditioner, so I’m not sure if it was the colour or toner they used which has made my hair go that way??  I had to pop into Boots the other week to stock up on my toiletries and was also meeting a friend for lunch and a catch up, we headed to Boots as we both needed to get a few bits, L’Oreal 400ml bottles were on offer 2 for Β£5.  As normal I picked up one conditioner and one shampoo for coloured hair, but as I was looking at the other I spotted one with coconut oil so I thought I’d give this one ago to see if it would make any difference.  I’ve started to use the coconut oil one now and I can safety say I love it 😍.  My hair smells lush, its soft, shiny and silky and brings out the blonde a little more too, so I will be carrying on using these as I love my hair smelling so lush! πŸ’†πŸΌπŸ’‹
