Bourjois So Laque Glossy Nail Varnish

You may have seen a few weeks ago I picked a couple of nail varnishes from Superdrug in a 3 for 2 sale. So here is the third and final one which is from the Bourjois So Laque Glossy range in the shade Adora Bleu. This baby blue polish caught my eye straight away and again, just had to have it!

www.superdrug.com/Bourjois/Bourjois-So-Laque-Glossy-Nail-Polish-Adora-Bleu £5.99
I haven't tried any varnishes from this range before but I was very happy with my purchase. It is thick and the colour is solid so it applies very well. The varnish is smooth and you can probably get away with just applying one coat if your in a rush, although two does look a lot better. I would say this is a very good quality nail varnish, definitely one of the best I've used and the colour looks exactly the same on as it does in the bottle. Its a beautiful soft cornflour blue shade which looks gorgeous in the summer and is a little bit different. Even though it is blue, which can be quite scary, its not bright or in your face. The pastel shade is subtle and can suit any occasion. 
I didn't leave it on for 10 days which it promises but the varnish has brilliant staying power and still looked great, with no chipping, a week later when I took it off and changed it. It does what it says on the bottle and leaves a lovely glossy finish without a top coat. Again I did use this on false nails so I can't comment on natural nails but I am sure it is just as good. This gets a massive thumbs up from me and I am definitely going to buy more shades from this Bourjois range.

Red Herring Backpack

Backpacks seem to be all the rage at the moment and don't seem to be going anywhere. I wasn't in any rush to join in with this trend and if I'm being honest, I'm still not overly keen. And here comes the massive however... However I saw this one in Debenhams a few weeks ago and just had to have it. 
Similar www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/
This one by Red Herring is a cream boucle stitched design with patent cream edging and faux leather straps. It is definitely not your typical back pack, more on the posher, girly side and it reminds me of something from the 90's. Its boucle/tweed material is very 'Clueless' if you know what I mean. This is the main reason I fell in love with it. Another amazing bonus is that with backpacks you feel so free. Honestly it sounds strange but to not be weighed down on one shoulder by a handbag is a dream. The weight is evenly distributed on your back, which means it feels lighter and there's nothing under your arm, so walking is much more comfortable. 
The main reason I don't like backpacks are that they are very inconvenient. When in a shop you have to take it off your back, hold it with one hand, undo the clip, pull out the strap and then root around for your purse. Then shove it all back in, throw it back on your back and then grab your shopping. This is proving very timely and a lot of hassle for me. Also when your walking along I am always scared someone is going to rob me from behind and I wouldn't even know. Although with this one it has got a hard pull strap to undo which I would like to think I would feel if someone tried to get in. Just to be on the safe side I only wear it in the town where I live, I don't think I would go somewhere busy like London. 

Overall I love my new backpack and I have been getting a lot of use out of it. I got this for an absolute steal at £10.50 which is the main reason I bought it. Had it been full price at £32 I would have just walked away.

Weekend In Photo's

Last weekend I took a trip to Hadleigh Castle in Essex with Josh and his dog Blade. We had a lovely long walk and I took lots of photo's so I thought I would show you a few.

Sponsored Video| Dove Advanced Hair Series

Dove Advanced Hair Series* is a new hair care range by Dove tailored to different hair types. It is split in to three ranges offering expert care for your hair needs. The three ranges are: Youthful Vitality for aging hair, Oxygen Moisture for fine/flat hair, or Pure Care Dry Oil for dry/dull hair.

Here is a short introduction video

My hair is particularly dry from where I have dyed it a lot, therefore I would probably go for the Pure care dry oil range. This consists of a shampoo, condition, treatment mask, nourishing treatment oil and a restorative treatment oil. These products are infused with African Macadamia oil to deeply nourish your hair, leaving it five times more silkier. 

For more information about all the ranges check out the Dove hair care website.

Chiara Fashion Kimono Style Challenge

I was contacted by online clothing brand Chiara Fashion* to take part in their Kimono Style Challenge whereby I had to use one of their Kimono's in 3 different outfits. I chose to do a evening oufit, a festival outfit and a beach outfit. Here is how I styled them. 

Outfit 1 - Evening/Going out
Kimono www.chiarafashion.co.uk/retro-floral-print-fringe-chiffon-kimono-in-orange.html £9.95
Top - Miss Pap
Jeans - H&M
Heels - New Look (old)
I would wear this outfit for drinks out at a bar. I think jeans and heels always look classy together, the lace crop top shows quite a bit of skin so its nicely counter balanced by the kimono. Its nice to cover up a little bit in the evenings but sometimes you don't want to ruin an outfit by throwing on a cardigan. The kimono feels comfortable yet stylish and is still very light. I love how the rest of the outfit is quite plain but you then have a big splash of colour over the top. 

Outfit 2 - Festival
Headband - Primark
Top - Topshop
Shorts - Miss Guided (old)
Wellies - Hunters
I love this outfit for a festival or any other outdoor occasions this summer. Again the shorts and crop top show a bit more skin than usual but the kimono covers this up nicely. The wellies look great with this outfit and protect you from the mud. You will definitely stand out from the crowd at a festival with this kimono and not look the same as every other person there. 

Outfit 3 - Beach/By the pool
Swimsuit - Forever 21 (last season)
Shorts - as above
Sandals - New Look
I would definitely wear this kimono loads on holiday, it is great to put on over a swimming costume when you get out of the pool. I would also wear it to walk around town, along the beach or even in the evening as a light cover up for dinner. 


You can check out Chiara Fashion on their site www.chiarafashion.co.uk or on twitter twitter.com/ChiaraFashion
They have so many different Kimono's on sale at the moment so grab one now!

Lots of love

P.S. Let me know which one is your favourite outfit or how you would style this kimono?
