Mango Wishlist

You will most probably of noticed that well we ALL are loving Zara. With their classic shapes designs with modern detailing. But what about the other Spanish high street fashion label, Mango? I personally thing Mango is massively overlooked as a store. Here are my favourite current picks from Mango.

All of Mango bags seem to be great quality and I love their jackets especially the sequinned jacket that also come with matching shorts. I also love the smart casual style of the black jumpsuit with the gold zip detailing.

Biba And Beyond In Brighton

At the beginning of the year as part of a university trip I visited the Brighton museum and art gallery to see their Biba and Beyond exhibit. The exhibit had a nostalgic feel with donations from Brighton citizens including a photo of them wearing the piece and why where and when they wore it. Giving the exhibition is a sweet edge on the pricey London exhibition I have seen. Here are a few photos that I took whilst I was there...

The Sunday Post

After a hectic few weeks I have finally broken up for the Easter holidays, however looking outside it couldn't look less like Spring. I expected picnics, beach walks, light lunches and fruit salads. But I am getting by with big brunches, flavoured tea and weekly cinema trips. It feels good to actually get to see all the films that I normally never really get round too. 'Stoker' and 'Side Effects' have been my most recent favourites. Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman are beautifully captivating.

Make-up and fashion wise I have currently been living in my River Island disco pants dupes with slouchy tops or sheer shirts. I have been wearing my Mac Speed Dial lipstick much more recently with the typical cat eyeliner flick.

Audrey Hepburn: A Timeless Collection

When I feel like I needed a deserved break from essay writing and staring at a computer screen I feel like its best to go old school, and loose myself in a black and white movie or a book.

I have been loving the Audrey Timeless Collection which includes Audrey Hepburn's most loved movies; Roman Holiday, Funny Face, Sabrina and of course Breakfast At Tiffany's. This inspired me to have another look through the book 'Audrey 100' which is 'a rare and intimate photo collection selected by Audrey Hepburn's family'. Her hair and make-up is flawless I am obsessed with her eye make-up in the second photo. Definitely a look I would love to recreate...

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint

I am always admiring girls with professionally done shellac nails, the glossy shine finish always caught my attention. So I was thrilled when I saw that Barry M had released a nail polish collection with a similar finish. In the photo below I am wearing the colour Lychee and they are 4 days old in the picture, proving that they are very chip resistance. However I had to do 2 to 3 coats to get achieve a strong colour consistency. I am already excited to try out more colours from their Gelly Hi Shine collection.

Valentines, Spring Fashion And Uni Update

Once again uni work load has gotten the better of me and blogging has been seriously lacking. I made a  New Years resolution that this time round I will throughly research and plan essays and projects and not leave them to last minute, but get cracking as soon as they are set. So far i'm doing alright. But that does mean that my social life has been swapped with staying in writing essays and articles whilst watching the Lost box set and stuffing with my face with snacks (currently loving ham, coleslaw and crackers.)

It was also valentines not that long ago and I just couldn't not mention it as my boyfriend bought me a Alexander McQueen coin purse with a little razor blade on the front of it. Along with pink lilies that were just gorgeous.

I am currently loving all the fashion magazines spring issues, the prettiest fashion season by far. Grazia magazine has really come up trumps with their bonus bumper issue. Glamours issue is also lovely and worth checking out.
