Black Leather






Erm, hello black leather! How amazing is this case? I've been looking for the perfect iPhone case for a while now and found this beauty courtesy of Case Hut. I wanted something glam but simple and this definitely ticks the boxes with it's sleek leather look. You can't really go wrong with black and this case looks good teamed with anything, especially monochrome nails. I also love that it's real leather as it looks so much better and feels quite nice too (is that weird? That's probably weird).

I actually struggled to pick just one case as there are so many I had my eye on - the whole Dado Collezione collection is pretty impressive especially the leather and marbled pearl cases. I've only had it for a few days but it feels pretty durable and good quality so I'm fairly confident this case survive my regular clumsiness! I've linked to my case above but you can check out the full range at casehut.com.

What do you think?

This month I'm loving...GHD Creative Curl & Naked2 palette



I'm back! It's been a couple of weeks, unfortunately I managed to get a bad dose of food poisoning so blogging has been a no-go. I've pretty much spent most of my time sleeping and luckily felt better for my birthday yesterday...NO WAY would I let myself miss out on cake. Presents and some celebrating definitely perked me up after a lousy week and I'm particularly obsessed with my new GHD Creative Curl Wand and Naked2 eye palette. 



I had a play with these yesterday to make myself feel a bit more glam and less like I've been in a duvet burrito for the past 5 days. First thoughts on the curling wand? Pretty amazing. I love the beachy, loose curls it creates and it's so speedy to use - I curled my whole head in under 10 mins. It's a bit fiddly at first and I did burn a finger or two when I started but this is definitely going to become a hair staple for me - I'll upload some pics when my hair is looking less like a birds nest!


I've had my eye on the Naked2 eye palette for a while now and was so pleased when I unwrapped this beauty. I was never too fussed for eyeshadow but I've been having a play recently and love a gentle smokey eye. This palette has so many amazing, blendable shades - Booty Call and Tease are the winning two for me at the moment. Review and photos to come soon! 

Have you tried either of these products?

Baby Blue



Matalan coat | H&M jewelled neckline jumper | Topshop Leigh jeans | New Look boots.

HEY BABY BLUE. Officially head over heels for this coat and its beautiful blueness. I've been looking for a coloured coat for a while now but couldn't find the right style for me. I like oversized but not super-oversized, y'know? I'm a fan of this tailored fit and it makes me pretty excited for some warmer weather where I don't have to wrap up in a thousand layers (and probably still be cold).

This cool blue colour makes it so easy to pair with jeans, dark colours, pastels and whites. I've started wearing it with a baggy white tee and ripped black skinnies for a casual just-rolled-out-of-bed look. I also keep getting that blue da ba dee da ba di song in my head whenever I put it on...

Sunday Slouchin'



Next tee | Topshop jeans | M&S boots | Primark fedora.

Sunday slouch time! I recently got a new lens for my Canon 650D which I am OBSESSED with. Seriously, it makes such a difference and it creates amazing depth. I actually ventured into the local park for these photos instead of being a lazy bum taking them outside my flat and was greeted with sunshine and some lovely backdrops.

This Next slouchy tee is my ultimate favourite for a dressed-down Sunday and I threw on the fedora to hide my craaaaazy hair. I'm not really a hat person to be honest as I have a right pea-head so hats tends to swamp me but this fedora seems to be an okay fit (meaning I can actually see out from under it!)
