Garden Inspo

I know this isn't fashion or beauty related but I love design, art and creativity.  I also studied interior design and love spending time in a pretty garden. 

I literally spend any moment I'm scrolling through my phone on Pinterest, saving pictures to my many different boards.

Home and Garden Inspo being one of them! I love the idea of having a Country home with an adventurous garden! Let me explain this for as that probably makes no sense at all..

For example this garden below is super cute, its well maintained, has a lovely summer house and a place to eat but what I would like is a mix of the one below and the three above .. Im writing this quite late at night, this probably makes no sense at all!

Either way Im hoping you get the idea of my garden inspiration from the pictures I've found on Pinterest and one day ill hopefully have a garden like this of my own that I can spam you all with pictures of!



I'm off to Newcastle for a few days...

obviously I will be shopping so the next post will be my 'Shopping Haul'



Lately a lot of my clothes all have one thing in common and that is that they are embroidered in some way. This season Embroidered clothing is really in fashion and looks like it will continue on through Summer'17 with runways and catwalks still bringing out these amazing designs.

Here in the UK summer really does not last long so its nice to bring that Floral Summery vibe into all seasons. Embroidery seems to be on all clothing items lately, whether they're Embroidered Jeans, Tops, Dresses, Shorts or even Shoes. It always works.

I am going to show you just a few of my recent buys from over the last 4-6 weeks that all include embroidery.

This dress is one that I brought from Fashion Union Via Lipsy  . I absolutely love this dress for out door day time occasions, for example.. BBQ's, Picnics, Garden Parties and anything similar. Its the kind of dress that could be both casual or dressy depending on how you wear and accessorise it. 

These jeans are one of my favourite pair of embroidered jeans baring in mind I have three that are embroidered. I brought these from Marks and Spencer's.. one pocket has this floral design and the other pocket has a bird design that edges round to the front. Here is the online description and photos

I would say finally.. but this is just a few of my embroidered collection so you will probably be seeing a lot more in the future ( near future ).  I wear bralet's almost every single day as I find them more comfy on my forever changing bra size! This looks so cute over a plain black bralet and is perfect for summer and festival season.

How I Store my Make up

Storing your make up can protect the products from getting damaged but at the same time also keeping them well organised and ready to reach for. 

This is just going to be a small post of me showing you my make up storage, I am one of those people who like decorative and vintage may be even slightly edgy home decor. 

This is such a simple yet easy to find or buy Make up brush storage holder.. this cost me £1 from a vintage country store. I love getting inspiration from Country Homes and White Living Interiors. One of the things I've seen a lot in both of these searches are vintage jars for storage, whether its brushes, ear buds or cotton wool pads.. it always looks cool and qwerky.

The typical clear Cosmetic Organizer, these are in my opinion the best for show casing your products and for easy access to finding the shades you need/want. I got this from Amazon for under £10. This is just one of many different styles and sizes! One of my favourite Make up products is a Lipstick and I love to have my collection on display .. as you can see I only really have two different brands.. Mac Cosmetics and Younique by Lils Beauty Buys.

These are two of my vintage buys both from little Boutique Vintage Seconds stores. Both of these were under £10 each and are probably very old, If you like shabby chic/vintage home decor then I recommend that you visit local vintage auction houses, charity shops or shabby chic boutiques. 

So that's it for my vintage decorative cosmetic organisers and storage holders, I do also have wicker draws, canvas boxes and make up bags but we will leave those for another day.
Let me know what your favourite way to organise your make up is and what you think of mine <3
