Hot Hot Hot

It's been a few weeks since my last blog post (sorry about that) but I have been busy with training for my new job then actually starting it. The training was in London on Oxford street (my bank account is looking very depressing as a result) and I got to stay in a hotel in Covent Garden for 5 days! 
We got told to dress smart as if we were at work but this only lasted a day because of the heat, so for the rest of the training we were allowed to be a little more casual. The pictures below are what I wore each day, however on day 3 I was running a little late so I didn't have time to take any.

Day 1
 Skirt - Topshop Tall
Shirt - New Look

Day 2
Shirt - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop Tall
White Top - Primark
Necklace and Thumb Ring - River Island
Hand Chain - New Look

Day 4
Shirt - River Island
Purple Top - New Look

Today I thought i would do something a bit different and share my perfume collection, it is only small but I don't see the point in using a load of different perfumes all the time as you end up with too much choice. 
When putting on a perfume I would recommend using a body lotion first (preferably by the same brand as the perfume) this is because it helps the perfume last longer and enhances the smell.

Even though i don't have the perfume to match, the Jean Paul Gaultier body lotion it is actually my favorite to use in the summer, although it is not very clear on the picture it does have little bits of glitter in the lotion to give your skin a 'shimmer' effect.  

As for actual perfume I love the Juicy Couture perfumes! I have been using the original for a few years and this is actually only the second bottle I have had to buy. It has a fruity floral scent and one of the reasons i love this perfume is because the smell really lasts, I have had people comment hours after i'v put it on that they can still smell it. 

I got Kylie Minogue's perfume as a Christmas present, normally I avoid celebrity perfumes and go for a brand but this has actually grown on me. It has a floral scent and a very feminine feel. This is the sort of perfume I would wear during the day, where as I would use the Juicy Couture perfume in the evening if i'm going out.  

Kylie's perfume is a little cheaper than Juicy Couture however if you were only going to buy one I would spend the extra money.

OOTD - 11/07/13

Purple dress and Belt - New Look
Top - M&S
Bag - Primark
Socks - bhs

I feel I should start by saying that the top i'm wearing was given to me about 5 years ago (don't know how it still fits!) It is actually longer in length but I have folded it under the belt. This is the sort of thing that could be worn with jeans without the belt to dress it down. 
This outfit is great if you are a pear shape or if you want to make your bum and hips look smaller because the detail on the top keeps the attention there. This could also work the other way if you are top heavy by putting the detail on the bottom and wearing something plain on top. 

Next week I am going away for a few days for training before I start my new job, the fact i'm going to have money again is rather exciting and I know I will go a bit crazy with the spending as I haven't had money to spend for the last few months. Oxford Street here I come!

Rimmel London BB Cream

I bought this little beauty the other day while at the Herts & Beds blogger meet up. A lot of people have recommended using a BB cream so I thought I might as well try it. The Rimmel London BB cream was the one that most people seamed to be happiest with and it did look pretty good.  

For those of you who don't know what a BB cream is, its basically your moisturiser, foundation and concealer all in one. This particular BB cream primes, moisturises, minimises pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens and helps protect your skin (wow thats a lot)
I have only been using this a couple of days but already i think my skin looks better, it smoothes skin tone and its light on your skin so it really feels like you're not wearing anything. 
It costs £6.99 and trust me it is worth it!

Herts & Beds Blogger Meet Up

On Sunday I went to my first blogger meet up which was held in St Albans. It was a really nice day out and it was great to meet people with the same interests in fashion and beauty. I missed the first hour of the meet up because of how unreliable British public transport is (2 buses didn't turn up and i ended up waiting an hour and a half for one!) and by the time I got there everyone was heading to Lush, when we got there we told them we were all bloggers so they asked for our links and gave us all a free sample of one of their cleansers. 
After Lush we went into Benefit and Bare Minerals, going into Benefit and not buying anything was a challenge as i am completely obsessed with their products (probably about 80% of my makeup collection.)  We then headed to Superdrug, where we were followed around by their staff, so we left and went to Boots instead.
After Boots it was off to Champneys where one off us picked up a tub of their body scrub and passed it around for us all to smell, next thing there was a bit of a rush for the till as we all bought one! We then went to Space NK and even though I couldn't afford to buy anything it was great to have a look round as I have never been in there before.  

The above photos are the only ones I took (was a little awkward getting my iPad out to take photos) and the photos below belong to Courtney from

Today I went to the Hertfordshire / Bedfordshire blogger meet up (which I will be posting about later on in the week). This was my first blogger meet up and it was so great to meet other bloggers in the area!

I chose this outfit based mainly on the weather, after all we are in the middle of a heat wave! The dress and the knitted cardi are both from New Look, I got the dress a few years ago and it has really lasted well. The dress is a bit short on me so I wore denim shorts underneath (also from New Look) however it can also be worn with skinny jeans. The red belt came with the dress and I actually borrowed the converse shoes from my mum. As for the gold bracelets i'm not actually sure where i got them from, i'v had that long. The gold chain ring came in a set of rings from Lipsy that i got about a year ago, he colour has lased surprisingly well as usually the gold wears off.
