After a long bout of HUGE adoration across the pond, Mabelline’s Baby Lips range has finally made it’s way to the UK! Introducing six shades onto our market, Baby Lips offer “intense care and 8 hour hydration, and is nourishing for baby soft lips”. With an SPF of 20 and costing only £2.99 you can’t really go wrong with these. I’ve heard great things about them and plan on buying the shades “Pink Punch” and “Cherry Me” at the weekend!

MY MCQUEEN LEGGINGS.

So this week, this arrived in the post:

I decided to make the most of my birthday money and the mid-season sales and bought myself some McQ leggings. I bought the Iris Mirror print leggings and they. are. fab. They really are.

There’s one teeny weeny gripe with them… They’re slightly on the bigger side, just very slightly. I can still wear them and as long as I keep my butt covered it isn’t noticeable at all. I think they’re perfect.

This is me wearing them. I’ve paired them with my Zara shoes and a tuxedo blazer from Zara which I bought yesterday with 70% off.

Aren’t the leggings fab?!

THE BLING RINGS!

So this is what my hands look like today:

PRINTED JEANS MANIA!

Printed jeans have become such a huge deal over the past few seasons and right now the trend is at it’s peak. The thing about jeans in general is that they are such a staple in (almost) anyone’s wardrobe (Daphne Guinness aside) and oh-so easily accessible. As for printed jeans, both the high street and high end market have some amazing versions, most of which will suit anyone with an ounce of flair. My own collection of printed jeans is in itself, extensive, and they’re always great conversation starters from people who love them, people who hate them and people who “don’t get” them. I for one love them, and for what my opinion is worth, feel that printed jeans will always be fab. Rest assured, I’ll be rocking printed skinnies when I’m in my 60s.

I tried to find my favourite 10 pairs of printed jeans on the internet and finally found them, after much umming and erring over deciding which ones to include (as there are easily about 76 pairs I could’ve chosen). I’ll put links in the captions so you can go ahead and purchase them too!

So there is my top 10 favourite printed jeans! I apologize that they’re all in a big looooooooong column, WordPress was playing silly beggars with me. The thrill about printed jeans is that they can be dressed up with heels and a blazer and tons of jewelery, dressed down in the winter with biker boots, thick socks and a scarf or thrown on in the summer with the cuffs rolled up and a pair of Havaianas.

Let me know where you stand on printed jeans! Which ones are your favourites?

PHOTOS: MY HOLIDAY IN ALCUDIA.

I had such a fab time in Alcudia, Majorca that I thought I’d share my Instagram photos on here! I stayed at the Hotel Maritimo in Playa de Muro which I would highly recommend if you are looking on going for a relaxing break there. The hotel was great, food was amazing and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful or attentive.

Here’s a small collage of photos from my week in Alcudia, 27th June – 4th July. I’ll do another post on the things I bought whilst I was there!

MY NEW GLASSES!

I’m a huge fan of glasses, much to some people’s disbelief. I get people asking me all the time “Why do you not wear contacts?” and the simple answer is that I actually like wearing glasses. I find contact lenses to be a pain, I find them to be uncomfortable and “unnatural” to the eye. For me, my glasses are an important aspect of my everyday look and I try to choose glasses that reflect my style and personality. I don’t choose glasses to be discreet and blend into my face, I like to make a statement. For the past year I’ve been wearing my gorgeous Versace glasses, which I do still love, but I had my eyes tested last week at Vision Express and my eyes have both become worse by two “stages” (I don’t know what the official term is for going up stages in optometry, sorry!) and I was finding it increasingly difficult to see through them.

These are my "old" Versace glasses. I really love them still, I feel like they really suit me and I've had replacement lenses put in them. They're by Versace and I believe they come in four colours.

Now, I do love those glasses and wanted to find out how much it would cost through independent opticians to put new lenses in them to still be able to wear them. Turns out, it’s quite expensive to go to an independent opticians to do it so I enquired about it when I went for my eye test. Whilst I was there, I naturally strolled over to the vast selection they had on display and immediately began trying on as many pairs as I could and of course I decided that I wanted a new pair.

I found these glasses by Polo Ralph Lauren in the men’s section and FELL IN LOVE. I love the electric blue colour because although it’s a bright, statement making colour, it’s still quite neutral and goes with almost everything clothes-wise and makeup-wise.

I really like big framed glasses rather than the slimmer rectangular styles and the men’s section is perfect for finding the bigger frames! I also like the contrast of the white arms on these. I was toying with this pair and a pair of Prada glasses that I absolutely LOVED as well, I originally wanted a tortoiseshell pair and they were the perfect shade, but in the end I went for these; I might ask for the Prada pair for Christmas this year (fingers crossed!).

I always find my experience as a customer in Vision Express pleasing, the staff are always very helpful, sometimes perhaps a little too helpful, but I don’t mind that really. The actual opticians are always very relaxed and make you feel at ease which is always a bonus! The shop assistants, whenever I go in there, are always on hand for assistance and leave you alone when you don’t want to be hassled when trying on glasses for yourself.

I was made aware of an offer that if you spend over £149 (I think, don’t quote me on that) that you’ll get another pair of £99 glasses for free, which I think is a fab deal! However, I couldn’t actually find any glasses in the store that suited me well enough for me to choose them; because even though they were free it would be a waste for me to have them and never wear them if I wasn’t totally comfortable with the way they looked on me. This is where I asked about the price for lenses to be put into my Versace pair.

The sales assistant left the desk to ask someone about the price and came back and told me that they could treat my pair of lenses in my Versace glasses as my free second pair of glasses so I got those for free too!

I’ve also seen some amazing sunglasses in there which I might invest in at a later date. I have a pair of prescription sunglasses already under my previous prescription from last year and as it’s getting towards the end of the Summer and I’ve already been on holiday, I think it wouldn’t be wise of me to be buying into expensive pairs of prescription sunglasses at this time.

I really recommend Vision Express, (rather than Specsavers because I’ve used them too), as an opticians for the deals they have, the vast expanse of choice in terms of frames and the staff are brilliant too.

Let me know what you think of my new glasses, do you like them or are they too much?

 

Go to VIsion Express to see some of the selection of glasses and sunglasses they do!
