With the snow from last week having melted away and January finally coming to a close, I've decided it's time to start looking towards Spring. What better way than with a fresh spring manicure? Models Own Bare Beauty is my latest nail polish crush, it's a really cute pastel peach that adds a little bit of colour to the classic nude nail. Since applying it this morning it's already begun brightening up an otherwise rainy January day. I think this is going to be one of my go-to colours for Spring. I absolutely love it!

What are your favourtie nail colours for Spring?

A White Weekend

Snow Weekend
Snow Weekend
Barbour Town & Country Wellies

This weekend the UK was hit with an abundance of snow, resulting in a rather white weekend. It fell thick and fast Friday morning and has hardly stopped since. As ever, I donned my chunky thermal socks and Barbour Town & Country Wellies, then Tom and I went out for a lovely snowy stroll. 

Our beautiful scenic walk escalated rather quickly into a frantic snowball fight; and after our fingers were too cold to play we decided to head home with wet hair and red noses. The best part about the snow? Snuggling up with a warm hot chocolate, and that's exactly what we did.

There's something about the snow that makes me really love winter! How did you spend your snowy weekend?

What's In My Handbag: January 2013

What's In My Handbag: January 2013

Another month, another peek inside my handbag... Firstly, and most importantly are my gorgeous new gloves. These were one of my favourite Christmas presents this year, luxury leather gloves with a faux fur trim to match my staple fur collared leather jacket. I haven't stopped wearing them, and with the much colder weather creeping in I'm certain these will come in handy when I’m out and about or my train has been delayed. There’s nothing worse than cold hands!

Next up is the ever-present fashion magazine and this month I’ve opted for Vogue. The February issue delves into spring with a beautiful catwalk guide to the new season. I renewed my Vogue subscription a couple of months ago now, so I’m rarely without the latest issue. Alongside that is my trusty Topshop Phone Purse, it's a really cute moc croc hard phone case that doubles up as a purse.

My current nail polish of choice is Models Own in Champagne. It’s such an easy colour to wear and looks great with just one coat. I've also been carrying around the Jessica Quick Dry Oil that my sister got me for Christmas (thanks Verity) and I honestly don’t know how I managed without it? With one drop it protects a fresh manicure from scratching, smudging or wrinkling so its perfect for nails on the go.

Lipstick wise, I’ve got a new favourite; Bourjois Rouge Edition in 10 Rouge Buzz*. I posted about this lipstick last week and from your reactions it seems you guys love it just as much as me. It’s really hydrating so saves me having to worry about carrying lip balm too. Perfume wise it’s the trademark Chanel Chance. I feel lost without it!

You can find my latest WIMH post here. I also have plenty of invites, so if any of you lovely ladies would like to join WIMH simply leave me a comment with your emails address and I'll send you an invite right away.

Most of you will already know that I’m a sucker for a new pair of shoes, and black ankle boots seem to be my specialty. These boots have been on my wish list from the minute I saw them, so after a few subtle (obvious) hints to my wonderful boyfriend, this Christmas I finally bagged my dream boots. I squealed as I opened the box and spent all of Christmas day strutting around in my 'I don't need a job, I don't need my parents, I've got great boots, boots' like Rachel in The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate.

They look great with a pair of black skinny jeans and an oversized jumper for a nice, cosy day and even better dressed up with sheer black tights, one of my favourite little black dresses and my leather jacket for an evening out.

This is the start of something special, I know it.

Sunday Post: New Year, New Start


Coming into the New Year earlier this week means I’ve spent the majority of my time trying to get back to some sort of normality. There’s nothing more refreshing than a new start, so I spent Friday afternoon sorting out all of my beautiful Christmas and Birthday gifts in an attempt to get everything back in order.

I've been feeling slightly poorly the last couple of days, so after a manic few weeks with my Birthday, Christmas and New Year I decided to settle for a very quiet weekend full of movies, magazines and Tumblr. Tonight I'm snuggled in bed watching Mr Selfridge, with my favourite Yankee Candle burning. A perfect start to the New Year.

Models Own Champagne Nails

This week's nails come courtesy of Models Own Champagne, a sparkly cool gold/mink polish that I've had my eye on for what feels like forever - you might remember it from my Christmas Wishlist post last month? Anyway, come Christmas morning this little gem was stashed away in the bottom of my stocking (thanks Father Christmas) and I've been dying to try it ever since. As with all Models Own metallic polishes it covers really well and is super sparkly, I can't stop looking at it...

I think it's fair to say that this is fast becoming one of my favourite polishes to date!

Tumblr Time

With the New Year finally here, I've vowed to keep myself inspired. After leaving university I found it fairly difficult to find the time and the resources to retain my creativity; using my blog as my main creative output means I spend the majority of my spare time on that and forget about many of the other vices I used to love. I recently renewed my Vogue subscription and I've promised myself one evening a week where I log off of my computer and have some down time. Another way I plan to keep myself inspired is through Tumblr - it's not really a blog as such but a place where I can lose myself in an online diary of inspirational images. If you like whimsical photos of fashion and fluffy animals then you're in for a treat...

2013: New Year's Resolutions

I’ve never really been into making New Year's Resolutions. I generally find that people make a long list of unrealistic goals, therefore instantly setting themselves up for failure and that's no way to start off a New Year. I also believe that you don’t need a New Year to make those all important life changes.

This year however, I aim to take up Bikram Yoga in an attempt to get myself - body and mind into a healthier routine. So I'm dusting off my yoga mat and trying my hand at the workout regime that Mirander Kerr swears by. After all, if it's good enough for a Victoria's Secret Model it's certainly good enough for me. Here’s to trying something new this year...
