Spring accessories

Despite the fact that the wind and rain is battering my window and it's pitch black outside, according to Google, spring officially began last week. Around this time of year, I start to look around for new pieces for my spring/summer wardrobe. It at least gives me hope that the sun will start appearing pretty soon! 

As you can see, pastel hues really appeal to me and look beautiful in the sunshine. 

Top left: I love this lilac lacy top from Miss Selfridge. It will look great teamed with skinny jeans and heels.

Top right: This cross body bag in lime sorbet is so beautiful. It's from Reiss and at £159 it's not cheap but the quality is always amazing and it will last for many years.

Bottom left: Jewellery is also high on my agenda to purchase. I want a few colourful pieces and that's why I love this bracelet from Asos. The semi precious stone is the prettiest colour and the bangle is gold plated so I'm definitely willing to pay £38 for this little gem.

Bottom left: Last but not least are these divine heels from Brantano. The pastel pink colour will be perfect for the summer weather and will look great teamed with a summer dress. The embellished toe strap also adds glamour and they are an absolute steal at only £40! 

I hope this pieces provide you with a little inspiration and you enjoy shopping for your spring wardrobe as much as I do!

Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum Review

Winter is an absolute nuisance when it comes to my skin -  the central heating and cold weather play havoc with it. I tried moisturising my skin morning, noon and night but it wasn't doing the trick. Recently, I was sent a serum by Escentual to try in between cleansing and moisturising my face.  I was excited to use the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum.

Lokum Istanbul Turkish Delight

Lat week I received the most beautiful box of turkish delight from Lokum Istanbul. I knew I was going to receive the rose flavour, however the packaging it came in was a total surprise and I was delighted when I saw it.
