CHERRY BLOSSOM

Necklace - Warehouse, Nail Polish - Maybelline 'Mint for Life' and Essie 'Cocktail Bling', Sephora Lip Stain in 'Always Red' and 'Strawberry Kisses'
The long Easter weekend has not been so kind to my bank balance as I have done a little bit of shopping. With some new Spring nail polish and another necklace to add to the collection I have been loving these Sephora Lip Stains. Lip products have always been my favourite and they can really help to brighten complexions - giving the illusion of brighter and more flawless skin. After seeing some bloggers rave about the Sephora lip stains, I asked my sister to bring some back from her recent trip to New York. The colours are hard to differentiate in these photos, even when swatched on my skin but I own 'Always Red', a bold red and 'Strawberry Kisses' a hot pink shade. The latter is my favourite at the moment (see here for a pic of me wearing it) and lasts all day but does transfer a little when eating/drinking.

I also popped into Zara and found the perfect go-to Summer Sandal with a chunky heel which means that they'ree super comfortable. I tried the skirt on a few times before I made up my decision but in the end it came home with me. It's such a lovely candy pink colour and it's pretty obvious that the pink cherry blossom has influenced my choice of clothing!

Finally - how pretty is this blouse? It was hard to resist especially with the lovely daisy detail on the collar and the vintage style. It's my friend's wedding next month and I'm pretty certain that I'll be wearing this entire ensemble, which is awesome because last minute dress shopping is such a pain! Hope everyone has had a lovely Easter weekend so far, I think it's time I had some more chocolate...

A LITTLE MORE SUNSHINE

Hurrah that the days are now longer and us bloggers have more time in the day to take photos. The longer days and sunnier weather really do make me feel happier and more positive. I grumble less about the walk to the train station in the mornings, especially now that cherry blossom and pretty Spring flowers are in bloom. The decent weather at the moment make me long for holidays and it doesn't help that my little sister is currently in NYC right now on a school trip. Her regular updates make me wish I was over there too - it seems like a lifetime ago when I made my own visit with friends. Oh to be sitting in Central Park or picking up essentials in Sephora! Anyway, I hope everyone has had a lovely few days and looking forward to a 4 day week, yesssss!
