Summer Nights in Tuscany

Okay. Right. It has been more than a MONTH since I updated this blog! Kill me now!! I have just been so busy. I spent the rest of my summer having fun in Italy and school work this year is really tough, but I am back now -  for good!

This blog post is dedicated to my holiday in Tuscany, Italy. The two weeks that I spent there were really brilliant. I spent most of my time sunbathing and a little bit of time being a cool and quirky tourist!

The first week was spent in the mountains. The views were spectacular and there were pretty walled towns all around us! For the second week we moved closer to the coast where we stayed in a farmhouse! It felt like two different trips!

So what can I say? Here are some holiday snaps...

Alexa Chung... The Style Icon of Today?

I definitely think so!
Alexa is in almost every fashion magazine there is on a weekly bases and regularly appears on the cover of many fashion magazines. She has been the cover of Vogue more than once this year alone – which is something that she should be proud of!
For a while I was confused about what ‘occupation’ Alexa actually has. I knew that she appeared on many T.V shows on channel four for a while – what I didn’t know is that Alexa started modelling at the age of 15, stopped modelling to become a T.V presenter, got spotted yet again whist presenting and now presents and models!
Her originality and slightly edgy style is what people think of when her name is said. I have seen many people trying to copy her style and trying to take inspiration from her.  
She certainly takes a good photograph and she looked great in her recent photo shoot for Vogue. I think that this photo shoot shows that she can look classy as well as edgy as the clothing she wore this shoot is very different to the normal items she is seen out with.

I personally think that her edgy style has got her to where she is today. She currently the face of Lacoste’s ‘Joy of Pink’ fragrance and the Italian Sneaker company ‘Supergas’. Not bad for a T.V presenter!

What do you think of my Alexa Chung inspired outfits?

Benefit Foundation!

If you read the post about all the items that I want from Benefit you will understand why I am so excited! The other day I bought the Benefit Range You Rebel Lite foundation!

It is really good and gives you great coverage and a seamless looking face! I am addicted already - I can't use it too quickly because it is quite expensive!

This is just a quick update, comment and follow!

Fashion, Body Spray, Followers and Life!

Wow, I woke up this morning and checked my blogger account (as you do) and the number of followers had doubled!! I was so excited. Thanks so much for following it means the world to me!

The other day I was in River Island, which is one of my favourite shops, and I found a top that I have been dreaming about ever since! It is flowy and flowery and beautiful!

The Top from River Island - What do you think?

You can wear it with jeans, shorts, denim skirt - the list is endless. It is £19.99 so I better start saving!!

I get given loads on body sprays and perfumes for birthdays and Christmas. I love them but it is the kind of love that makes me not want to use them because I don't want to waste them!
Right now I have: Hollister Laguna Beach, Ted Baker, Love ETC - Body Shop and Black Star - Avril Lavigne.
My personal favourite is the Ted Baker body spray because it smells so unique. I categorise my sprays into two sections - winter and summer. Ted Baker defintitly falls into the winter category along with Black Star. The other two, Love Etc and Hollister spray, fall into the spring/summer category. For daytime use I tend to wear the body sprays and for the evening I put on the perfume. As it is April and a heatwave, today I am wearing the Hollister spray so I smell very berryish!


Hollister Body Mist - £8.00

Body Shop Love ETC - £14.00


Ted Baker - Limited Edition Body Spray - £5.11

Black Star - £12.99

Thanks for reading and following! Comment if you have any questions!

It's Good Friday so everyone who celebrates Easter is thinking ahead to Easter Sunday. They are thinking about Easter Eggs, Easter Dinner, Church but most of all 'What to Wear!'

I personally think that Easter is not celebrated enough. It is supposed to be the biggest day in the Christian calender yet, Christmas is so much bigger and much more commercial.
Even though Easter isn't Christmas you still want to look nice and look like you have made an effort. I have put together some outfits that I think would look great for your Easter Sunday!


Orange Stripe Bow Front Prom Dress
River Island - £44.99
I think that this dress has Easter down to a T. The pastel shade is spring like, whilst the bow  makes it more formal for the occasion.

Stone cut out sandals
Stone Cut-out Sandles
Dorothy Perkins - £16.00
These sandals would look fantastic with the dress. They are delicate which will create a contrast from the boldness of the dress.

The pearls make the look more sophisticated.

Oval Pearl Collar Necklace
Oval Pearl Collar Necklace
Accessorize - £16.00

Delano Jumpsuit
Delano Jumpsuit
Monsoon - £95.00


Jumpsuits are all 'in' this season and if they are worn with the right shoes and accessories they can look great! This jumpsuit has a floral pattern on a pastel pink background.

Petrol Blue (Blue) Canvas Slingback Heels | 218641847 | New Look
Canvas Slingback Heels
New Look - £24.99

These shoes will look incredible with the jumpsuit. The blue will tie in with the blue in the floral pattern. The heel will give you hight because hight is a key component in looking good in a jumpsuit!

Claw Set Pearl Stretch Bracelets X 2
Claw set Pearls stretch bracelet
Accessorize - £12.00

These pearl bracelets will really finish off the look. No necklace is needed because there is a lot going on in the jumpsuit. However as there are no sleeves these pearls will make sure your arms do not look bare and boring.

My Cosmetic Wish List!

If you read 'A day at Westfield' you might have realised that I really love the Benefit range!
I love it because the packaging is so cute and the make-up is good quality and will last.

I would like to have the whole range in my bedroom so it took me some time to decide on my top 5 essentials from the Benefit range.
Here it is:

you rebel lite
1. You Rebel Lite - Tinted Mousturiser £23.50

This tinted mousturiser is supposed to be good because you get a very large tube and you only need a tiny bit of it to make your face look brilliant.

BADgal lash
2. BADgal lash - mascara £16.50

You can't live without mascara and this one from Benefit is perfect to show off to all your friends!

ultra shines
3. Ultra Shines - Lipgloss £14.00

With ten colours to choose from you can pick your favourite colour that suits your skin tone. It is small and easy to carry in your bag.


4. Dandelion - pink perk me up face powder £23.50

Theres a huge selection of face powders in the benefit range. I love this one because it looks so so pretty!

the porefessional

5. the professional - balm/concealer £23.50

I love this concealer because it is in little tube. I don't like concealer when it is in a stick form because I don't think it covers spots very well.

So there's my top 5 items from the Benefit range.

to purchace any of the items above.

Comment below if you love the benefit range as much as i do (i am kind of obsessed even though i don't own any of it)!


Review: The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopoholic

This book is one of my favourite books of all time! Its a laugh a minute but still has a serious ethos.

Becky just can't stop shopping. Everytime she sees something she likes her credit card comes straight out of her bag and straight into the shop assistants hand. This is the case until Becky gets into serious trouble. Seriouse trouble with the debt collectors!

This is a must read! The book is the first in a large series so you don't have to just stop here.
Other titles include:
Shopoholic Abroad
Shopoholic Ties the Knot
Shopoholic and Sister
Shopoholic and Baby
Mini Shopoholic
