Practical Bows....

Hello Lovely readers,

As you may know I have a love for bows on everything from my handbag to hair accessories to tops and shoes. I LOVE BOW DETAIL!!

It is super cute and pretty!!

This outfit is a smart but practical outfit. A smart blazer toned down with jeans and flats but with the added glamour of pearls and sparkles on my shoes.

Blazer is
Black top with bow detail is H&M (recent purchase)
Jeans are River Island
Bag is Primark (recent purchase)

Zebra print bangle is also primark
AND my current obsession... my sparkly nude flats which I purchased on a recent trip to Cyprus!

I loved wearing this outfit... I felt smart but not too overdone!

What do you think?

Nails of the week... understated glamour...

Hello Lovelies!

This is the polish I am wearing this week.

I am a huge fan of bright coloured nails but sometimes it does call for a more toned down colour.

I often find myself looking at polishes and picking up the same colours just a slightly different shade from the last!

However I don't often have colour on my nails as I have acrylics done every 4 weeks, so when I have the chance I love to have a new gorgeous colour on!

This polish is by Ciate and the shade is 'Bon Bon'

It is such a natural shade but with added glamour! It is a beige/lilac colour and looks fab on!

I really do rate Ciate polishes they glide on easily and give a super glossy finish once dry.

This sweet polish as nudged its way into my top favourite polishes it is simply gorgeous!

I got this polish free in a magazine a while ago and hadn't used it until recently! I think it may have been Marie Claire magazine!

But I think they retail at £9 per bottle.
