Styling Embroidered Shorts


Styling Embroidered Shorts



Embroidered Floral Shorts Topshop

Embroidered shorts really do add that touch of something special to the usual denim short and top combination. These shorts have a beautiful floral detailing which makes them perfect to pair with other plain pieces.

I've paired these Topshop shorts with a plain low cut white cami from River Island. This is a staple top which is perfect for mixing and matching. I've also worn this with a lovely long light grey duster jacket from River Island. I love this look and feel that the duster jacket really adds length to the outfit as a whole.

The whole look is completed with my favourite white shoes from Zara. I'm still wearing them with everything! These shoes or any other heels will really elongate your legs, especially as the shorts are high waisted.
Floral detailing really is so beautiful for this time of year, I don't think I've ever owned such a pretty pair of shorts!

Sephora Masks

Sephora Masks


Sometimes we all need one of those at home pamper days. On a recent trip to Sephora I picked up two products. A honey eye mask and a lavender foot mask. Both of these are from Sephora's own line and are such a bargain price for that perfect tlc at home.

Sephora eye mask


First up is the honey eye mask. This comes in a bright orange/yellow pack and this one specifically focusses on nourishing and balancing. It consists of two patches and you apply one under each eye. You leave them on for 15 minutes and then remove the excess. The result is that my eye area feels smoother and more nourished. Not bad for only $5.


Sephora foot mask

Secondly this is quite possibly my favourite foot mask ever. This is the Sephora collection lavender foot mask.  This particular foot mask is for refreshing and relaxing, and it definitely does just that. The heat and humidity really takes its toll on my feet and sometimes they end up swelling especially after a hard day walking. Its also perfect for those days where you just want something soothing and relaxing. This foot mask is the perfect way to relax and chill after a busy day on your feet. The lavender scent is of course very calming and relaxing in its self. You pop these little boots on, massage slightly, rest up for 15 minutes whilst they work their magic. For $5, it's a little slice of heaven as they really do work. They leave your feet feeling moisturised and kind of refreshed. I love these so much that I think I might have to make them a weekly ritual.

Do you like any masks from Sephora's own line?

Topshop Embroidered Bardot Midi Dress


I'm a lover of easy breezy dresses for summer. They're great for keeping cool, comfy to wear and still look effortless at the same time. I recently purchased a beautiful embroidered bardot midi dress from Topshop. Of course it's in my favourite summer colour white!!! I adore the embroidered overlay on the top of this dress, it's seriously pretty and as it's a bardot cut, the detailing is shown off even more. This dress does come in at the waist and unlike others I've tried in the past, it flows down perfectly.  The midi length is also finished with some more lace detailing on the hem.

This dress is so perfect to wear in the warmer months and does the speaking for itself so you can totally wear it with minimal accessories. 

I'm so happy that I've finally found a longer summer dress without a massive split down the side of it. As much as they look incredible in still shots and calm conditions, the reality is you're forever holding down your dress to avoid an awkward breeze!

I adore this dress and it's now totally one of my favourite dresses of the season.

Origins Ginger Products


Origins Ginger Products


Ginger is quite possibly one of my favourite flavours ever! I love anything ginger scented, and my ginger obsession doesn't stop there! Ginger foods whether its pickled ginger, ginger cookies or ginger green tea are also way up there. So when I came across Origins line of ginger flavoured products, I just had to try them.


Origins Ginger





This Ginger Burst savory body wash is a seriously refreshing shower gel and it smells incredible! It is somewhat moisturising and lathers beautifully. It energises but yet still at the same time feels calming and soothing. For anyone who is ginger obsessed, this is a MUST!

I decided to try the Ginger Gloss smoothing body oil too. It was either this or the body cream, but I own way too many body butters and I wasn't sure if any could ever beat my favourite Laura Mercier body souffl├ęs

Origins Ginger Gloss

I apply the ginger gloss after my shower and it certainly locks in the moisture. This is especially amazing as the Florida heat and humidity can be so drying on your skin. After using this body oil, I'm left with glossy, smooth and glowy skin. Once again the ginger scent just melts my heart! 


So if you're ginger obsessed or just want to try some new body products, these are definitely great ones to try.

Have you ever tried these ginger products from Origins?

Off The Shoulder Outfit



Off The Shoulder 

Bloomingdales Off the Shoulder top

My latest obsession is definitely off the shoulder tops. I especially love pairing them with a pair of white skinny jeans. It totally creates that perfect day time look. One of my latest off the shoulder tops is this blue and white striped one from Bloomingdales. I feel that matching this top with white jeans just elongates the whole look due to the white stripe. It's a lovely and light top which is perfect for those super hot summer days. These white jeans are my go to Topshop jeans for summer and they literally go with everything!
I've finished this look by pairing it with my beautiful wedges. They just add that little extra something and totally make a simple day time outfit ready for a lovely summer dinner.

Pineapple Faves



Pineapple Faves


I wanted to share with you a few of my pineapple favourites! Pineapples just take summer to a whole new tropical level!



Sunnylife Pineapple Lights



I've always been a lover of fairy lights and sadly I've just had to say goodbye to a set of my favourite flamingo ones. They had been living on my balcony but the sunshine in Florida made their bright pink colour fade, and some thunderstorms also filled my poor flamingos up with water. Probably not the best combination for a working light! So I've recently invested in a new set of fairy lights and judging by the title of this post, I'm sure you've guessed that they're pineapples!

These fairy lights are from Sunnylife. I've totally been eyeing up their pineapple float too. I just love the tropical fun vibe that these lights create, perfect for a summer party, bbq or just to put you in that exotic tropical summer mood.







I also found the perfect beach bag from Francesca's closet. Of course it has a pineapple on it! I love this shop, I'm always finding something fun from there and their accessories section is just the best. This bag (in the top picture) was actually in the sale which made it a million times sweeter.

So if you want to know where I am, I'm at the beach with my pineapple!





Have you seen any pineapple related things lately?

Summer Outfits



Summer Outfits


As it's summer my love for white outfits has been at an all time high! There's just something about summer which makes me want to reach for anything white. Clothing or accessories, I'm white obsessed!



Dorothy Perkins top

This outfit is a skirt and top combo (but everyone actually thinks it's a dress!). The top is just fuelling my cold shoulder vibe. I've been loving wearing off the shoulder tops lately, so this cold shoulder one mixes up my outfits. I adore the detailing on this top and it was such a great find from Dorothy Perkins as it literally goes with so much.
The skirt was such a great buy from H&M. It's a tight fitted textured short skirt but it just seems to flare in the right places. Plus because it's elasticated it's very comfy. 

Banana republic dress


Another summer obsession of mine is stripes! This dress is from the Banana Republic outlet, so of course that made it such a steal! It's super smart but casual at the same time. Definitely a perfect one for work due to the length of it. It can also be dressed down and would go perfectly with a lovely pair of jewelled sandals. I've paired it with my favourite sun hat for a total stripes look!
