Getting back to nature.

As you can probably tell I've been away for a few days. I was able to spend a few days in Suffolk where my parents live. Amongst the chocolate, reminiscing and garden parties I was able to take a morning bike ride. Behind my house is a wood with streams, flowers, fields and the most beautiful scenery. I managed to stop along the way and take a few photos for you all!

The Fragrance Shop, Discovery Club 6th Edition

This may surprise you, but I don't have a spring scent. I'm actually incredibly fussy with perfumes, wearing each scent until I end up hating it. I love reading about how fragrance is made with almost an entire shelf dedicated to the subject, so what's holding me back? Simply finding a perfume that I enjoy and will continue to enjoy is extremely time consuming. So when The Fragrance Shop gave me the chance to try their 6th Edition Discovery Club* I was exited to delve into the world of this seasons scents.

Maybelline Colour Show Neons ft Orange Fix!

Orange is a bit of an odd colour. I love Chanel Holiday, but I don't like the look of Models Own Peaches and Cream. Maybe it just takes a while to find the right shade? Almost half a year on from my second orange polish purchase I've fallen in love again...

Laying In Till Late.

I have a confession to make. I have recently overcome an addiction, an addiction to my bed. It's soft, big enough  to lay in any position I fancy and keeps my worries at bay. As you can imagine I've wasted a lot of time in this cotton cocoon but no more!

The Killer Sandals!

First there were ugly heels, now their sandal equivalents have become a trend for S/S 14. Honestly I'm just not feeling it, they remind me of my dads holiday sandals and that's not a good look. I have however been on the look out for a more feminine style, a slightly more flattering cut. The hunt is over, I have found them!

My Jewellery Favourites.

It takes a lot for me to fall in love with jewellery. I've had so many high street pieces break on me I've given up. Minus Zara, they're collection is amazing! At the moment I've been rotating a few of my favourites, whatever the outfit, occasion or season I know that these are a perfect match. (Photo heavy)

Instagram Feeds You Need to Follow: Interior Design

I am a serious lover of Pintrest, I spend most of my 'me time' looking at fabric combinations, reformed furniture and unique home DIY projects. Who knew you could sand and repaint floorboards, goodbye carpet! But of course what if you want some interior inspiration whist on the move? That calls for Instagram and these are my picks of the best accounts to fulfil anybody's cravings.

Handmade: Sew! by Cath Kidston

I've always been a creative. Every lesson I chose to take was art related, I'm a Tate member, lover of sentiment and most recently instructional book collector. Whether it's baking, interior design, DIY or textile I've been obsessed. One of my favourites is Cath Kidston's Sew!, a 'how to' guide on creating cult products with an idividual flare.

Fake the Glow!

Do you ever look at your makeup 'mess' and think, wow that's a lot? I've been thinking this all morning, but it's worth it for the glow! I've recently changed my makeup up a bit to recreate the glow that my skin seems to be lacking. After a few daily wear tests this has been the formula for perfection.
