NEW IN - DAY & NIGHT

Day and Night Opening image
A little bit of a delayed post this evening as I was desperately trying to get my Wacom Bamboo pen to work so I could scrawl a bit of my handwriting in that opening image! Luckily I managed to figure it all out and here is my bank holiday post for you. I hope you all have had a fantastic long weekend. I didn't really get up to much but I did manage to squeeze in some shopping...
GAP LINEN SKIRT YELLOW ZARA SKIRT
Firstly, I made use of the bank holiday discounts on offer at GAP and purchased this white linen blouse. Since that brief change in weather a few weeks ago, I've been after all things white and this blouse will look great tucked into skirts, worn slightly unbuttoned with jeans or as a cover up. I'm definitely after a few more bits to add to my wardrobe, perhaps a really crisp white shirt, floaty girly tops and basic white v-neck tees. I also wandered into Zara with the intention of just window shopping but couldn't resist this lemon yellow skirt. It's the cheeriest colour and Zara is one of my favourite brands to find a great fitting skirt (they have some lovely ones including this turquoise skirt and white skirt!). Mine is a similar fit to my pink skirt from this post and I can't wait to shoot it in an outfit post for you guys soon.
THIS WORKS DEEP SLEEP PILLOW SPRAY
I have also been meaning to try the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. Sometimes I need that extra bit of relaxation to drift off to sleep and while lovely baths help, I don't always opt for them daily. So this little gem was something I'd heard lots about and spotted the duo in Space NK. So far, I really like it and the Lavender, Vetiver and Camomile is super soothing and it's a nice scent to associate with sleep. I've only used it twice though, so I'll keep you posted on this one...

  2. Ahh let me know how you get on with the pillow spray - I always hear so much about these. Finding it hard to sleep at the moment because I'm out until all hours and don't get enough time to truly unwind. Also, I might just have to try and snap up that skirt - adorable!!

  3. You can't go wrong with a nice white button-down! I'm also really loving the color of that skirt. I wish I had a Zara in my town! I'm definitely interested in that pillow spray so let us know more!

  22. Thanks Valerie! That skirt is definitely calling for no-tights weather so England really needs to warm up soon! x

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like it! I really like lavender so it's nice to spritz some of it on before sleep. The skirt is a dream but still not worn it out yet! It's not quite bare legged weather here, sob! Though I guess it's 'take all my clothes off' weather in HK haha oh the humidity!

  24. The Zara near my work has been refurbishing for a while so I made a special visit to the one in my local town and I was so pleased to be reunited!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks Mei! It's definitely what drew me towards it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh really! I have not owned a proper white shirt in the longest time so it was nice to add this to my normal colourful collection. I actually don't own a single black shirt! The pillow spray is actually really nice!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's a great colour isn't it? I'm so pleased with the purchase :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay! I love GAP for their shirts and smart basics. Zara skirts are the best, I think I actually love this skirt more than the pink one, the material is kind of stiffer and doesn't crease!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes - they're so versatile, I'm pleased you agree Mat!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ah me and shopping are two things that can't stay apart for long haha. I like the pillow spray, it's such a lovely scent :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, I want more in different shades now :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Aw thanks Jen! Sometimes I overlook GAP but then swiftly remember them when they have their sales on because they have such great discounts! That Jammy dodger biscuit cushion is one of my favourite things :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yay I'm glad to hear that. I think it's so versatile and I definitely look forward to wearing it smartly for work but also for lazy summery days :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can't quite decide whether it's been doing it's job but I can safely say that the scent is so soothing so that must help a little! Stay tuned!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Aw thanks Maria! I will hopefully snap it in an outfit post soon!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I saw it and knew I had to try it on and was pleasantly surprised. I'm definitely going to be popping it into an outfit post soon!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm pleased to read that they helped your insomnia! I think this has been a nice addition to my sleep routine so far :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think this spray must be similar to your lavender spray as it's the strongest scent out of the fragrances!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks Akiko, I'm pleased you think so. I definitely look forward to wearing this outfit soon!

  40. Hello Kitty dressed up as a lion...what's not to love huh? ;) x
