summer holiday essentials

Hat - Topshop
Sunglasses - ASOS
Bag - MissGuided
Bikini - Topshop
Playsuit - ASOS
Its that time of year when we can start fantasizing about trips away to beautiful, hot destinations whether it be a week by the beach or a city break. Whatever you're doing this summer, you'll probably need to go shopping. I always seem to find an excuse...
So I've complied my wishlist of essentials that I really want to get my hands on before I go away! The first thing I really want is a great hat as although I love the sun, a bit of shade is always nice and I love this completely oversized one from Topshop. Also a must have is of course sunglasses and these ones from ASOS are so cute and this style goes with so many different face shapes, and a dusky pink also goes with everything in a summer wardrobe.
Another staple is a bag that you can just throw everything in and take to the pool/beach but also to a restaurant in the evening, and for me that's a backpack. This one from MissGuided is a beautiful colour and the perfect size. Also on holiday I don't like to pack loads of shoes, so these sandals from Brantano are great because they will go with everything whether its a casual outfit by the pool or dressed up for an evening out.
An outfit essential for me in the summer is a simple playsuit as they're comfortable, cute and more practical than a dress. This one from ASOS I love because i can imagine it'll look amazing with a tan!
I really hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, let me know where you're going this summer!

OOTD - Coachella Vibes

Dress - ASOS
Bag - Charity Shop
Rings - Shop in Camden
Sunglasses - Topshop
Just me wishing I was at a festival this weekend. The weather in the UK has been really lovely recently so its finally time to kind of start dressing for summer! Instead of partying at Coachella me and my boyfriend walked over to a nearby village, enjoyed the sunshine and drank smoothies.  
Today I wore this dress from ASOS which I love, and also this bag was the best bargain ever....£1!! I always seem to wear more jewellery when its sunny as well so on went my favourite rings which I picked up from a little shop in Camden Town.
Can you believe as I'm writing this post the sun has disappeared and now the sky is a horrible grey colour. Typical...

The best and healthiest pancake recipe ever?

Damnnnnn they look gooooood.
So if you're a pancake addict like me then I've got a great recipe for you to try as it a lot healthier than the standard flour recipe and is even more delicious! Can you believe it only has two ingredients??

So all you need for these pancakes are two bananas and two eggs, mash the bananas with the back of a fork and then whip in the eggs and you have your batter! Fry them in a frying pan like you would regular pancakes and then top with any toppings you want, I would recommend icing/powdered sugar as they did that in Amsterdam and its sooooo good!
I hope you enjoyed reading this quick little post and let me know if you try out this amazing recipe!

Get Ready With Me - A Night Out

I realised that I haven't really done a makeup post in a while, so I thought I'd share the make up look I usually go for if I'm going out on a Saturday night.
Now, as you can probably tell, I'm not one for wearing a lot of slap. My 'night out' make up routine is pretty much my 'everyday' look but with a few more products added in! The first step is usually to paint my nails and its usually any colour from Essie. My foundation of choice is the L'Oreal True Match as its one of the best on the high street that gives really good coverage but feels light on the skin. For concealing I turn to Bobbi Browns corrector for under the eyes and the creamy concealer for any blemishes and redness, and this is when I also apply Urban decays Primer Potion to my eyelids. I then powder my face all over using Rimmels clear complexion as it is of high importance that my make up actually stays on my face during the night.
Then after combing through my eyebrows I fill them in with the shade Buck from the Naked Palette. Then I define my eyes using the Shade Toasted all over the lid, Hustle in the crease and outer corner then I highlight the brow bone using Sin. I love to then pack on the mascara, and my favourite still is Revlons Grow Luscious. And, a little tip for a night out, use a cheap waterproof mascara over the top and your bottom lashes!
The last step is blusher and I love MAC Melba, and then when I'm about to leave I apply a little of MAC's kinda sexy to my lips!

I hope you guys enjoyed the post!
