Style Crush of the Week

Welcome back me

Hello! Unfortunately I have neglected my little blog recently, not out of choice though I must add. I have been very busy making trips here there and everywhere! I have also had to begin planning the rest of my life recently, which is very time consuming as you can imagine. However, I have lots that I have to share with you and plenty of purchases made/to be made. I will be making my style diary a weekly thing- I just need to get myself a little bit more organized.

I am really enjoying 'style diaries' which is an inspiring collection of fashion bloggers from all over the world. Impossible to put down, this book compiles all of the best blogs out there, whilst also helping to conjure up ideas for your own blog. I stumbled across it in urban outfitters and it cost £14.99. It’s the sort of book you can keep coming back to. Every fashion blogger and fashion lover must have a copy.  


Maybelline's Gel Eyeliner is one of the best things I have bought this month. Simple and easy to use, this little beauty is reasonably priced at £5.99 and can be found anywhere on the high street. For a dramatic look or a natural one, the gel eyeliner is at hand and comes in a cute little ink well. For best results, as Lauren Conrad recommends in her book 'Style', lean on a flat surface and start from the inside of your eye.

Always a fan of pretty nail varnish, I have recently discovered Models Own- a collection which has a wide range of colours and shades. Although a little more expensive, £4.99 each, Models Own nail varnish is easy to apply and stays on for days. Definitely a great buy. My favourite colours are Pink Fizz and Vintage Pink. The entire collection is available online along with their own blog and an array of other cosmetics.

Chelsea Boots Primark £5
Shorts Primark £12
Blouse Topshop £35

The above pieces are all from Topshop. The high waisted shorts, which personally I think resemble Levis (?), cost £30 and are a size 8. The top is a tiered peter pan blouse with buttons up the back and cost £36 in a size 8- a word of warning though this blouse is extremely delicate and catches quite easily...probably best not to wear it to work as I did, this piece is only for show. The blazer, which I have wanted for months, is an apricot colored piece costing £65 in a size 8, perfect for layering as it is over sized.

Fashion tights can really change an outfit from quite nice to something quite special. After searching high and low, I finally found these House of Holland suspender tights in River Island and they cost £12. However, I must warn you that these tights are very easy to ladder and I didn’t actually leave the house before I had already laddered them. That said, if you are not a plonker, these sexy tights really are a must have. River Island also have a wide selection of tights on their website which is worth a look. That said, Primark do a much cheaper, practical pair so keep your eyes peeled and get those legs out ladies!   

until next time.
