Writing with Style - Swarovski Crystalline Stardust Pen


Hola Chicas, 


Yes this post is an extra girly post because a gorgeous pen filled with crystals is mainly aimed towards women.  So obviously one of the most important thing about a pen is.. 
How it writes? well this pen is most definitely my one and only pen to go to.. it sits perfect in your hand and writes so smoothly.


I was sent this gorgeous pen in the colour Lilac, before I was sent this I searched the www.thbaker.co.uk website and found out that this is filled with approximately 1’300 delicate clear crystals, creating light reflections as you write.

This pen is sleek and elegant and is designed in the highest of quality. 
Here is the stock image from their website which shows the detailing more up close.. 


Love Lils xo



Do you have FOMO over Festival Fashion?


Hey! 

So the big question is.. do you have FOMO? and is it about missing out on this years biggest and best music festival fashion trends. Well look no further because I have shopped high and low this year and found some super funky finds.



Naming a few places I shopped online and in store at were: Tk Maxx, Charity Shops, Vintage Stores.
Then for online: Pretty Little Thing had some amazing festival wear that I've not seen similar anywhere else. 



This year I went to 'THE LAST EVER' Secret Garden Party.. this is quite local to me so I went all out when it comes to accessorising and glittering up, despite the terrible weather.



I was very fortunate to be gifted by Killer Shimmer Bindis and Kay Kiss Bum Bags for SGP .. just look what they sent me! 

Bottomless Bowl of Goodies for your Furry Family

Hello Pet Owners, 

this is something different to what I usually post about BUT my little pooch is a huge part of my family so why wouldn't she be featured on my blog? So when you hear about a online pet supplies store .. I just couldn't not share. 

especially when my little Millie is obsessed too! So you want to know what I'm going on about? you need to visit www.petshop.co.uk ASAP.

Here is what I received in my first repeat delivery dog food bundle.. 

     


 1. grain free dog food - Huntland Grain Free Dog Food .. here is the write up about this food and why it is SO good. "Huntland is a 100% natural and grain-free food specially balanced, like no other food on the market, by 50% meat or fish and 50% vegetables, fruits and herbs. With reduced carbohydrate levels due to no nasty cereals or grains, Huntland dog food makes the perfect complete and balanced diet for all adult dogs."

    

As you can see Millie couldn't resist hoovering these up during my photo session!

2. natural dog treats - Catch Natural Whitefish Skin Cubes .. here is the write up of these treats "These small, crunchy and deliciously tasty cubed treats are packed full to the brim of fishy goodness to promote a health and wellbeing for your dog. They are low in fat, hypo-allergenic and have a rough texture to remove tartar build up and overall improve your dog's dental health.
Ingredients: 100% natural whitefish skins (and nothing else!)" 

I must admit when we received these I wasn't 100% sure she would like them as they looked a little unusual but she went crazy for them and howls at me whenever I get them out.. these are a definite winner for Millie!

    

Finally the third treat Millie got was... 

3. Dentalife Dog Treats - a Dentalife Dog Chew.. here is the write up "Key benefits of PURINA DENTALIFE include chewy porous texture, scientifically proven to reduce tartar build-up, helps reduce plaque build-up, no added artificial flavourings or colourants, resealable zip for freshness."


Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of the Dentalife Chew because my little Millie Moo ran off with this and into the garden seconds after I took this photo, its safe to say she loved it!

Thank you for reading and make sure to get your 

Love Lily and Millie xo





Top 3 online stores to shop from

Hey Everyone! so if you know me I'm a bit of a shopaholic whether its online or in-store. I love to find bargains and will always look through the sale rails first.. who doesn't love a good bargain anyway?

I thought I would share with you my TOP 3 ONLINE STORES and why..




I love Missguided because whenever you open up the homepage, a deal or discount code is always their that you can use. Not only that but just look at the background and set up of the website its so easy to use and so enticing! The actual clothes themselves are amazing, a lot of my wardrobe is misguided for both basics and party wear.




Asos is definitely my favourite online brand when it comes to customer service and delivery. ASOS customer service is AMAZING.. they will always reply to you within the hour and have a resolution .. when it comes to weddings if you have an issue they will do the best they can to succeed your expectations.. seriously kudos to ASOS! if you are a Premier A-List customer like me you get next day delivery all year round for just an annual payment of £9.95 plus they have a points system for each pound you spend which gives you vouchers to spend on the website! along with special discount codes .. I am now a Level 3 A - Lister which means I get 5 points per £1 - every 500 points is £5, I also get early access to sales, 20% off on my birthday and 4x triple points days.. I highly reccomend!



3. DEPOP


Depop is in my Top 3 because its like a combination of Instagram, Ebay and Etsy. Its people selling items from their own wardrobe, boutique stores and small business stores, you can get one offs, sold out items and something you've been wanting for ever either brand new or worn a couple of times! you can barter, swap and also do competitions.. its great!







Colour Pop or Flop?


Hey Everyone!

This is something I have been wanting to do for a while as I have a range of Colour Pop products and just cannot seem to workout whether or not I rate them or not!

I brought 14 different shadow pigments and highlighters as well as matte liquid lipsticks ( I will show swatches and thoughts of lipsticks on a different post ) I will also do a full swatch post and my thoughts on each individual shade too.. this is just an overview of my thoughts on the overall brand.
 
Here are the swatches of the shadow pigments I brought.. all from Colour Pop Cosmetics! I brought these for my sisters wedding and summer festival season ( which is why I have some bright pinks and a random blue ) something that I love about Colour Pop is that the shadows are fun, bold and super pigmented. A few of these shadows are from the Super Shock range and OMG WOW they really are shockingly bold and beautiful! 

video

Please ignore the tv in the background I did not realise I had that it would come up in the recording, Whoops! anyway so here are the swatches of the highlighters I brought .. I always prefer to do highlighter swatches on video because it really shows the true pigmentation and actual highlight it can give!

Personally I love Colour Pop Cosmetics for the Shadows, Blushers and Highlighters. They are so pigmented and the texture is something like no other brand. Its creamy and almost feels wet to touch but dries to a powder finish! Colour Pop is also very VERY affordable. 

Unfortunately I am not so keen on the Lips range from Colour Pop but again I will be doing another post on them soon along with a blog post on all the swatches!!!!

How to Holiday


Hi Everyone, if you have been on any of my social media you will see that I've just got back from a week in Crete for my sisters wedding!  ( I will do a special wedding post soon ) but i want to show you the top 3 essential items this summer - well my top 3 anyway!

Sunglasses is a must, especially ones with UV protection.. so a pair of polarised sunglasses is essential, but also a few extras like mine above that are 'just for fashion' with a little bit of protection.


This one is a bit of a two in one a swimsuit/bikini with a sarong! I have gone for a deep plunge red swimsuit from ASOS with a Marks and Spencer's short white Sarong with a small elephant print in black along the bottom. 


Finally a summer outfit that you can wear to any hot weathered occasion. I got both this skirt and the sleeveless blouse from Dorothy Perkins. This can be warn for any Summer Occasion.. for example: a BBQ, a Beach Day, a Lunch out or a Picnic or even just to go shopping.
