Cute iPad Accessories from ASOS

Unfortunately I'm a clumsy person. Countless glasses, teacups and pocket mirrors have met their end at my hands, so a case and a cover is a necessity to keep my iPad in one piece.

I usually take my iPad to university with me to make notes on, so it spend a lot of time in my bag. To keep it clean and safe I chose this leather case which zips up. This case also has little elastic straps in each corner which hold the iPad securely in place and prevent it from falling out when the case is opened. The lining of the case is soft, so the screen won't be scratched. I chose a black leather case because I seem to always end up with a lidless pen or a bottle of water which leaks in my bag, but this case is waterproof and easy to clean.

 ASOS Leather iPad Case With Lizard Panel - £10.00, reduced from £30.

ASOS iPad Case In Exclusive Indie Tile Print - £3.50 (reduced from £15)

I love the crazy patterns and different colour of this case! The back of iPads are sooo easy to scratch so I keep a hard clip-on case on permanently to protect and also to make it look a little bit more interesting. I was pleased to find this for £3.50 because even though I really like the design, I do not think it is worth the original £15 price tag as there are so many cool cases available on the likes of Amazon, eBay and Etsy for much less.

July Birchbox - Sun, Sea and Sand

This year I have well and truly become a beauty box addict, trying out several different subscriptions each month. So far, I think I have been most impressed by the Birchbox product choices, and this month looks to carry on their winning streak....

Review: Ciate Denim Manicure Kit

I have been loving the Ciate manicure kits, they are always fun to use and create some interesting looks. The latest one I've tried is the denim manicure kit which is based on denim jeans and includes cute little details such as stitching and studs.

NOTD: Simple Squares

Hi lovelies,

Here's my latest nail art. For once I've resisted the urge to cover every nail in glitter and kept it simple with just 3 colours and clean lines.

My Birthday!

I turned 20 last Saturday and had a wonderful weekend spending time with my family and friends.
I know 20 isn't a milestone birthday like 18 or 21, but I did feel a bit sad to be swapping my carefree teenage years for a decade where I'll probably have to start thinking about scary things like a career and mortgage. :o

NOTD: Pink and Orange

So, in order to travel light and save room for makeup and clothes, I only took two bottles of nail polish (Ciate - Kiss Chase and Soigne - Persimmon) and two little nail art pens, thinking I'd just keep my nails basic with pretty colours. But of course, I had to find a way to make them a little bit more interesting, so here are two designs I ended up wearing throughout the week.

More Magazine Freebies!

You know I can't resist a good makeup or beauty freebie, and this month there are plenty to choose from!

Last week I mentioned the fab Clinique freebies with Glamour

Another item I really like is the Balance Me Face Cream which can be yours if you pick up a copy of Marie Claire, which is also reduced to £2.50 this month.

Holiday buys and photos!

Hello :)

So you may have seen me mention I was on holiday last week, in the lovely and very picturesque Cornwall.

Whenever I'm on holiday I love just wandering around the little shops and finding weird and wonderful little things. Here's a couple of the cute things I picked up...

I am a little bit obsessed with wearing flowers in my hair at the moment, it just makes me feel so summery and happy. The vibrant, neon pink of the bracelet really stands out and looks great against a tan.

New Blog Design - Floral Patterns

You may have noticed my blogs looks a little different to the last time you visited. For once I've chosen a colour scheme to give my blog a more polished and "together" feel. Of course, there is still plenty of pink involved! 

I really like delicate and intricate patterns, and the flowers add such a girly feeling, so I think this new design really fits with my personality.

Anyway, hope you all like it! If you have any ideas for improvements I would love to hear them!

At the Beach!

I'm currently on holiday in the lovely Cornwall. Today, after waiting a few hours for the sun to finally make an appearance, I went to Crantock beach.

NOTD: Summer Stripes


I'm off on holiday tomorrow! :)

I can't wait to spend my days lying on a beach in the sun, so to get into that summer feeling a little bit early I've included lots of bright, summery colours on my nails.

Vibrant orange and pinks are definitely summer colours, while the white base looks will pop once my skin gets a little bit tanned.

Colours used (from bottom to top on thumb)

  • Ciate - Cocktail Dress (reviewed here)
  • Ciate - Kiss Chase
  • Soigne - Persimmon (from May Birchbox)

What's on your nails? What are your favourite summer colours?
