I haven't doe a photo diary in a while. I was at home for Easter and a trip home isn't complete without a walk, so I stole my sister's camera and took some snaps. The sky was dark and eerie due to the approaching storm which we got caught in during the last five minutes. It was nice to go home and have a cup of tea and some chocolate. 

How did you spend your Easter?

Perfect Fit for Friday: How to Change Your Look from Office to Casual

After a long day at work on a Friday, heading out for a few drinks afterwards is a nice way to relax but you don't always have time to go home and get all glammed up but at the same time, you don't want to be stuck in your formal office wear. I'm going to show you how I would transition my outfit from office appropriate to casual ready with minimal office (if I worked in an office). This might apply to you also if you have to dress smart for college or even uni. 

Ready for the Office: For a long day at work you want to look smart and still be comfy as well as having an element of your style in there too. I would always reach for my leather skirt from Zara. Unlike other leather skirts it's a midway between pencil and mini so appropriate for an office environment and the leather makes my look a bit more unique than your standard office wear. I would pair it with a striped shirt such as this one from H&M that's smart yet super comfy - perfect for a long day. A simple tailored waistcoat really completes the look and adds a level of smartness. As for footwear, these pointed H&M boots are perfect as they have are smart with a slight heel but don't make your feet ache.

Casual Drinks Ready: So you're done from work and you want to head to the pub or a nice bar for a few cocktails to celebrate that Friday feeling. However you don't want to rock up in a smart shirt and waistcoat and want to feel more relaxed. I'd swap up the shirt for a sheer camisole, like this one from Topshop. A simple way to transition your look is through accessories - I added a statement necklace and a dark red lip which makes it look like a whole new look when really you've only changed a few things. The skirt is not too formal so remains suitable and the shoes still look in place and are comfy enough to see you the whole night through.

If you're stuck for ideas on what to wear, head over to T.M. Lewin as they are all about finding the perfect look and fit and have a great range or formal wear that is perfect for the transition to going out for casual drinks. Their suits and ladies shirts are particularly impressive.

Feeling Sassy




Primark Jumper and Sunglasses // Zara Skirt // Pull & Bear Bag // H&m Rings// Similar Bra Here

This is perhaps a different style of post to what I usually do but I quite like it! This is an outfit that I always feel super confident in. I'm not a huge fan of wearing colourful things but, like most bloggers, I do love a good stripe. The best way to add something to a monochrome or all black outfit is texture and I find that the easiest way to do this is a classic leather skirt. I also like to pop on a few rings to complete the look. I usually opt for gold because I am one of the few people that doesn't really like silver accessories.  And finally what better way to make you feel super sexy than to wear a pretty bra? I've been loving this lavender one recently, it's so pretty yet so comfy- the perfect combination. Check out Adore Me for a great range of sexy undies, I particularly like this setFor more inspiration, check out the Adore Me Instagram too!

What outfit makes you feel sexy and confident?

£1.60 Nude Nails

nude nails, primark, manicure, cheap, beauty


Yep, you read it right, I have found a great nude nail combo for under £2.  I spotted this little gem in Primark and, though I have not heard great things about their nail polish, I thought at 60p it's worth trying. I picked up a top coat too as it's something I always forget to buy and it was only £1. 

First I just popped the Primark PS Quick Dry nail polish in the shade 07 Nude. To say it's only cheap, the brush is pretty good quality as you can tell from the lack of mess that I made (my nails usually look like they've been done by a toddler). It lives up to its name and dries, I'd say within a minute. Once it's dry I slapped on the top coat, which is also quick drying. It made my nails super shiny and made them less likely to chip. I went a whole 4 days without chipping them and when I did, it really was only minimal. 

I think this is a dream combo for nude nails. It's a great effortless look for during the week and matches with all of your outfits. Who would have thought you could achieve the perfect nude nails at only £1.60?

Have you tried Primark nail polishes? What did you think? Will you be trying this combo?
