Acid

Hey guys! Sorry for being so MIA recently. To cut a long story short, my tv, phone and laptop all broke unexplainably within a week of each other and as my tv and phone were fairly new, they were under warranty and easily replaced however my dearest laptop had being doing be proud for four (maybe five!) years, so he bit the bullet and died on me. I have yet to replace him but am currently borrowing my Mums to be going on with, so although sporadic, I will hopefully keep this updated. 
On the topic of laptops - I need a new one. Any advice on which is best to go for would be so greatly received. As a bit of a clueless Claire on the topic of laptops, I, like all other unknowing victims, naturally wanted to run straight for an Apple product. Are they worth it? and if so - Macbook or iMac? So many questions!
A few weeks ago now (boy does time go fast!) I traveled back to Bournemouth to stay with my lovely friend. It was such a nice break, and my wardrobe was noticeably singing a chirpy note of acid green! This jumpsuit is so dreamy. I spotted it from a mile off due to the colour and the fabric. Comfort and style are the two words at the top of the descriptive list for this item, the loose fit is very daytime casual and the cuffed bottoms and elasticated waist keep it flattering. I teamed it with some matching lime sandals and a super statement necklace but the colour really does the talking all on its own!
Oh My Love created these beautiful dresses in a range of shades, but this lime beauty was on my wishlist for a long time. The skater skirt is really flattering and comfortable on a nightout and the sweetheart necklace is so striking and feminine. Despite being strapless, the top also offers alot of support with a strapless bra, which is such a bonus!
And naturally to top it all off, I had to match my nail polish! This new Barry M Matte Paint in Waikiki caught my eye as soon as it was released. Most other colours in this line are nude based but this one is such a striking unusual shade. I gave it three coats on some glue on nails and the result was opaque and seamless.
Speak to you all soon,

snap, crackle, pop

Happy Sunday! I did a little bit of research last week and got my heart set on whitening my teeth so I ordered some Crest Whitening Strips from eBay and i'm already a couple days in. I will definitely report back my results! There's a difference all ready but i'm not where I want to be in the grand scale of gleaming white-ness. Other than soothing my poor teeth from slight sensitivity, today is mostly a lazy day comprising of Youtube watching, bacon eating and a brisk lunch time stroll.

This shirt is dreeeeamy. It's a very strange material, like waterproof - definitely has potential to get a bit heated under there and I wouldn't dare go anywhere near it with an iron, but gorgeous none the less. Just something a little different than a plain white shirt. I'm heading back to Bournemouth soon and I can't wait to wear these heels on my nights out!

paradise

post title: coldplay - paradise (because i'm on a big weekend hype..)
What a miserable day! After lunch my Mum and I went for a walk, which quickly turned into more of an adventure. We went to explore the woods across the river but before we knew it ended up too far down to turn back, in someone elses field and having to climb under the bridge to get back out. This won't make any sense to anyone who doesn't know where I live, but lets say, we can laugh about it now ;) Just had a pamper with my favourite Soap and Glory products and ready for tea, britains got talent and the soap awards, ah Bank Holiday.

Burgundy red and white is one of my favourite colour ways at the moment. It's summery yet not pastel-sickly. These white cullotes are the most comfortable trousers in the history of trousers. They're not see through either! Although do risk looking a little odd in certain outfits, work with them and they'll be your best friend.
