February Favourites

I cannot believe that thats another month gone by. February is over and we are into March. I can't keep track of one weekend to the next. One thing to look forward to this month however is celebrating two years with my wonderful boyfriend Liam. 

Here I have my February favourites, it's been a month of some luxury items and no makeup but I have loved every single item I have purchased. Let's get to it.

Starting with my newest item only arriving a couple of days ago. This Saint Laurent handbag. I absolutely love it, I am always drawn to a black bag but this leather is absolutely beautiful. It also has a smaller leather purse to go with it that is attached to the actual bag itself. This will be so handy to store cards and my phone etc. 
It will go with so many of my outfits because of the colour and the simple shape. It's for sure going to be a staple piece. 

This Lush order was a valentines themed one, with pink tones, feminine scents and hearts and flowers. Each one of these products I enjoyed using and at the end of each day enjoyed sinking into a bubble bath to relax after busy and stressful days. 

These cute ceramic milk cartons from Asda are a new cute edition to our house hold. We love a little milk shake in them or they are even perfect to have on the table to fill with milk and pour over our favourite cereal. 

Marble print has taking the world by storm being the perfect backdrop to many a floor lays :). This ring was a perfect little edition to my jewellery collection from lvndr. This site stocks lovely affordable jewellery, I have shopped their a few times, go check them out online, you won't be disappointed.

I love putting an outfit together using colours to match. I seen this House of Holland sweater and loved it, then I seen this skirt also from House of Holland and I just had to team them together. I loved the pinks and reds and the prints on each item and they just worked so well together. 

I wore this Asos jumpsuit in London recently. I needed a lightweight item to pack and I loved how simple but yet tailored it looked. 

Some days I like to be super dressy and feminine, other days I want to be causal and a little bit tom boy and this sweater says it all from adolescent clothing. It's simple and it was the colours that drawn me to it. However on this occasion i did dress it up with a tailored long jacket, jeans and my new Balenciaga shoes, and on that note... 

Here are my beauties, my Balenciaga flats, they don't need much explanation you can surely just see how amazing they are :). I'm really happy with them. I bought them when we went to London from Selfridges. The ankle strap sold them to me as they made them look more edgy than the version they do with out it.

I haven't shopped from the Avon book in years... Until now. This rose gold compact mirror caught my eye because it also charges your phone. The perfect handbag accessory.

Liam went a way to Berlin for his birthday for a long weekend. I didn't expect him to bring me something back but he did and I absolutely loved them. I am partial to a bit of Nutella and I have been know to just spoon it out of the jar. These mini jars are perfect for my little Nutella fix. They are glass jars too, I love how cute they are. I could even pop one in my bag lol.

The second thing he got me is this OPI travel edition Coco Cola nail polish set. He is so thoughtful as he knows how much I like to paint my nails. Every colour in this set is so lovely, I can't wait to try them all.

This top is from Asos and I was drawn to it because of the neckline. I am really loving a frill neck at the moment. I can't find too many that I like but when I do they go in to my basket. I find that a lot of them look a little Victorian especially white ones and I just don't love that look. I got one last month that was stripey so that had a really modern twist to it.

London fun

Last weekend it was all about my boyfriend Liam. We celebrated his 30th birthday together in London and I planned lots of fun things for us to do.

We arrived at The Four Seasons Hotel in Canary Wharf. The hotel was lovely and so was the room. On arrival there was a birthday cake for Liam which was a lovely  little touch. We spent a relaxing afternoon  in the hotel spa and then retreated to our room to get ready for our evening meal.

booked the Sunborn Yacht hotel which was a stunning location. We entered the lift which took us up to the yacht reception area. The beautiful staircase caught my eye straight away it was so luxurious, the staircase took us up to the restaurant where we chose duck for main and Liam had cheese cake for dessert and I had a cheese board, so delicious.

The next day we woke up early and went shopping. First stop was Selfridges where I purchased some amazing Balenciaga flats. We then continued to do a little more shopping going in to Lush, Zara, Topshop and then shops Liam wanted to check out. 

We then had reservations at The Sanderson Hotel for the Mad Hatters afternoon tea. I knew Liam would love this and I absolutely loved it too we had such an amazing time together. The setting, the food, the cocktails, everything. Would really love to go back and do it all again.

I would love to do this weekend all over again but for now it's precious moments into precious memories.

Valentine's weekend

I had the most wonderful valentines weekend with Liam in Cambridge. He told me to pack a suit case as he was taking me somewhere for the weekend. 

We arrived at The Hilton in Cambridge with a lit drive way and entered the hotel. The first thing I seen was the stunning bar area with a lady playing the piano. We headed up the stairs to our lovely room with a view of the canal. 

Dinner was served at 9pm and as you can see by the pictures it was a really delicious meal. We then went on to cocktails before ending the evening.

Let's discuss my outfit though 😍. I chose a whole look from House of Holland matching the pink and red in the sweater to the colours in the skirt. Absolutely love this look so much. 

I always like to take my time getting ready for Valentines, almost a pamper morning.  Starting the day with a lush valentines theme bath and continuing to get ready.

I hope you all had a lovely time celebrating the most romantic day of the year.
