Essentials: Traveling

Does anyone have a packing process? I do, I like to create outfits lay them out on my bed add accessories and shoes then finally I think about what make up I’d add. It’s a long winded process but I love playing around and creating new looks.

This is about as essential as my packing gets, everything I need for a trip away. ( – a tooth brush)

DSCN0102I’ve heard that it’s going to be a heat wave in Paris, and I’ve managed to to pack mainly dark pieces. When I go away ( which isn’t every often, to make it that little extra special I take my favourite undies)

DSCN0112Footies are an absolute must when wearing flats in the heat, and these lace ones are so delicate.

DSCN0117When I first started packing my make up I totally over packed. Pallets and brushes, more then once mascara, a foundation and a bb cream. It was way to much. Above is all the make up I’m taking, aren’t you guys proud?

Urban Decay/ Clinique / No7 / Rimmel / Front Cover

DSCN0119The only Jewellery I’m thinking of taking at them moment.

Forever 21 / Mona Mara

DSCN0120Of course you have to take some spending money, no matter your budget you can always find something special to buy in Paris. Don’t forget your passport!

NB: I will post more style posts I promise, this is a style blog after all! xx

May Favourites

DSCN0081My May favourites.

These are the things that I’ve been loving to use this month, they do spill over into last month and I’m sure I’ll be using them in June.

DSCN0082Percy and Reed: No Oil Oil hair Oil ( how many times can I say oil)

I’ve used this for over an week and have noticed such a difference, I’m hair is so much smoother and thicker. I don’t event get knots when it’s curly. ( This sample pot came with Elle)

Rose Gold Hoops.

I’ve always been totally jealous of girl who can pull off hoops, I think I look totally ridiculous. But I shan’t give up. I’ll find a way to style these hoops so that I feel confident wearing them. From John Lewis.

Bahoma – London, Vanilla Black

Recently I’ve falling in love with the whole Vanilla scent, I prefer the heavier smell. I’m really not one for sweet vanilla scents. Every time this is burning in the Lounge it’s my favourite place to be. The smell is so calming. DSCN0083

Silver Moon Boots

I’m a total magpie and spotted these boots from the other and of the store. I love wearing them so much. I think I’d be able to wear them with dresses too. They look cute with blue skinny jeans. From Primark.

DSCN0084Safari Bag

I had such a hard time picking this bag out, all the bags there were so beautiful and impeccably made. The perfect for summer bag, Palm tree, flamingos, pom moms and a pop of pink = everything I’d want out if a bag. This bag really goes with everything. Brings an outfit together. From Carara Designs.

Night Blue Trousers

DSCN0026

The perfect trousers for summer days and nights. There are so many different elements to these trousers that I love. The cropped leg, the bright blue, the pattern. And would you believe that they are comfy and £9!

Silver Boots

DSCN9987

Silver boots should be worn at all times.

As soon as i saw these boots i know they had to be mine, even if they were a size smaller then what I usually go for. Didn’t hurt that they were just £1.
