Highstreet spring/summer 2013

    River Island

With spring summer just around the corner I thought it would be interesting to show you guys what the british highstreet has instore for the upcoming season and give you guys a heads up on what the recent fashion trends are. I've been seeing a lot of pop on neons at the moment if you remember last year it was all about pastel muted shades this years it's upped the vibrancy and going full on neon, lime green/yellow in particular. I think the best way to pull this trend off would be to have one eye catching key piece and mix in with neuterals to give it a classy artistic vibe rather than a throwback from the 80's. Theres quite a variety of prints out in the highstreet as you can tell from the images above but its one main print mixed with block colour rather than your grandma's curtains and pillow cases thrown into a dress. In my opinion I like the campaign launches all the above shots have made and hopefully their collections will live upto expectations and looks as nice in real life.

Product storage

Hey guys, if your anything like me you collect and get sent a quite an amount of products which are full sized bottles and you don't have an exact location to put them. Before I started blogging and getting so into beauty I just used to have products in my shelf on the bathroom and that was that done but im collecting more trying out more and the other day I had so many I decided it was time for a proper clean out! I only kept products which I will use or may possibly use in the up and coming season changes. I used old boxes and baskets which I already had around the house just to place everything in and divide it by so its not all just slumped in one massive basket like it was before. The categories I split everything into was fake tan, body creams and body butters, hair care products and facial masks. I do have things like my daily cleanser, facial scrub, exfoliates in the bathroom this is just my excess products if I fancy changing up my regime. This is a really good thing to do if like me you feel your product collection was growing and now i've been able to rediscover products I forgot I had or couldn't find in a while and its also easier knowing everything has a place.

Wishlist #2

asos maxi dress, Nars lip laquer in hot wired, Office red platform shoes and Cambridge satchel from ASOS.

 As I said last month for the whole of 2013 I am going to do a wishlist for every month, this month since it's the month of valentines day I decided to base it around my wishlist outfit for a valentines date. Although me and my boyfriend don't really celebrate valentines that much I thought this outfit is very versatile with little pops of red rather than big fluffy novelty jumpers with hearts all over it so that it dosent have to be JUST for valentines. This would also make a perfect summers day outfit if you was going from day to night walk in the park to night out because although the shoes are heels they have a nice chunky heel and platform to make them comfortable  The bag is structured and classic to also make it appropriate for daily items to be held in there and also to go out for drinks with the girl. Overall I think this outfit has a classy yet exciting edge to it with the simple statement colours against the natural tones.
