I recently had the absolute pleasure of receiving this bundle of goodies courtesy of the lovely NSPA team.  With the lead up to summer, I have started to take a lot better care of my skin and hair, so I was very excited to give these new products a whirl.  I was sent a selection of products from their Bathing Rituals & Beauty Rituals collections, with a Hair Rituals treat thrown in too.  The products came in a very handy little carry-case, which I'm going to continue to use for storage after I've used up all of the items.

Don't you just love this summery weather we're having at the moment?  I decided to relocate my 'outfit photo spot' to my garden today as I couldn't resist making the most of the sunshine.  Today's outfit features the most beautiful dress I own, and it's from Chi Chi Clothing*.  I absolutely love the ombré colouring to the chiffon lower half of the dress, with a subtle slit at the front, adding to the flow of the fabric.  I cannot wait to wear this on nights out in Malta -- the length is perfect to team a pair of wedges or chunky heels with it too, but I chose to stick to my new favourite Primark gladiators (as seen in my holiday wardrobe haul!).  I added a bit of a 'boho' vibe to this outfit by throwing on some chunky arm/hand & neck candy, including this beautiful white stone ring from Ellise Vintage*.  I think the white stone worked really well with the Primark clutch & the gold matched the statement necklace.

It's also well worth a mention that despite the dress being chiffon on the bottom, there is a mustard yellow body con underskirt to prevent any wardrobe mishaps.  I even love the body con section of this dress & the bustier helps to give you even more of a body tuck/boost.

This outfit is making me beyond excited to go away.  I cannot believe we jet off in just two weeks tomorrow, AHHH!
Get me on that plane! (or not... I'm a pretty nervous flier, help).

SS13 Holiday Wardrobe Haul

I've been saying for a good two weeks now that I had a pretty large summer holiday wardrobe haul to either blog or film -- I decided to stick to blogging, despite how photo-heavy this post is going to be, so sorry in advance for that!  I have been gathering up items to take to Malta for the last month or so, every time I've had a little bit of money, and it's resulted in a rather large haul.  I'm sticking to only taking the basics when it comes to accessories & jewellery -- I find jewellery difficult to keep in my suitcase without getting broken or tangled up -- so that's the reason for being a bit repetitive with the gold jewellery complimenting my outfits.  Anyway, let's get started....

Necklace - Primark, £3
Elephant bangle - Stall in Brighton, £5
Clutch - Primark, £8ish (I think)

All I'm searching for now are a few more pairs of denim shorts that cover my dignity (why are they so hard to find?!), a crochet cover-up and a kimono.  I hope you enjoyed this post & a glimpse at some of my outfit ideas!
