Exclusive | Boohoo Nights collection

Boohoo are in the process of launching their amazing new Nights collection and i am lucky enough to be showing you first hand some of their exclusive pictures from their new range some of which are already available to purchase on Boohoo. The Collection offers a range of envy inducing dresses and statement making separates, all which are so perfect for nights out and party wear!

Boohoo have always been my go to store for their really reasonable prices and on trend pieces. This collection is no different and nothing costs more than £35 which is amazing! I definitely have my eye on a lot of the new items. Below are some of my absolute favourites!

Nadine Embellished cut out detail bodycon dress £35 | Link

I absolutely adore this dress and its definitely one of my favourites from the collection, probably because of the pastel pink contrasted with the white, it reminds me of ice cream like colours,the delicate cut out and embellishment is so pretty as well. For only £35 this is the perfect evening dress for spring/summer.

Claudia heavily embellished mini skirt £25 | Link

Again this skirt is amazing! For about 3 years now i have wanted an All saints embellished skirt but sadly the price tag of almost £200 does not fit in with my budget. I honestly don't think this version looks any different to the All Saints one, if anything it looks better and for £25 its such a steal!

Jen high neck sequin shift dress £20 | Link

This dress showcases my love of pastels and sequins to a new level! Boohoo have got this spot on, the high neck of it is different to what we've already seen and the white panelling on the bottom separates the block pastel beautifully! For only £20.. HELLO bargain of the century!

Katie suedette peeptoa metallic heels £30 | Link

These are my favourite shoes from their current collection, i love the suede look and although they are said to be nude colour they seem more pastel pink to me so of course i'm going to love them, they will go so well with the rest of my pastel clothing!

Jan sequin wrap skater dress £30 | Link

Last up from their collection that is one i definitely need to add to the wishlist is this stunning skater dress! Firstly i love the aqua blue colour which is a perfect colour for the upcoming months, the fit of the dress and how it falls is really flattering and again its covered in sequins so im sold haha! 

Its safe to say i need EVERYTHING from this collection! The collection hasn't fully launched yet so do make sure to check back in time as there are many more stunning items to come! 

 What do you think of their Boohoo's new collection? Which is your favourite item?

OOTD | English Rose

Jumper - Romwe
Jeans - New Look
Shoes - Primark
Nails - Barry M silk Heather

Its Friday!! I hope you've all had a lovely week, i'm heading home back to Plymouth today which i'm so excited about as i haven't really had a chance to go back home since Christmas, technically my Easter will be spent doing my dissertation and all of my other assignments but its still going to be really good and relaxing!

Yesterday the weather was rubbish and i just about managed to get some pictures before the rain set in for the day. I bought this oversized jumper from Romwe last year, it looks so much like a Wildfox one but minus the price tag! I love the webbed end of the sleeves and at the bottom of the jumper, its such a cute casual look for spring/summer. I always get loads of compliments when i wear this as well which is an added bonus! I'm wearing my favourite shoes from Primark again too, its hard to believe that something so pretty could cause SO much pain though! I have permanent blisters if i wear them and i dont see it ending anytime soon, anyone else get this problem with their favourite shoes?!

Thanks for reading, i hope you all have a great weekend! What do you think of this outfit? Have you shopped in Romwe before?

OOTD | Milk maid braid

Dress - Topshop
Jeans - H&M
Bag - Asos
Socks - Topshop
jelly sandals - Primark
Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Nails - Models own hyper gel cornflower gleam

I bought this dress/top from Topshop last summer and am still obsessed with the colour and detailing of it, i usually wear this as a dress in the summer as its fairly short but it definitely wasn't warm enough to do that the other day so i wore my white skinny jeans with it and it definitely works as a top too! I'm trying to make the most out of the clothes i do have in my wardrobe before buying a load more because there are so many things i think I've only worn once which is such a waste! Nothing compares to new clothes though hey? I'm also LOVING the new hyper gel range from models own, they have a super shiny finish and they last for quite a few days without the damage or hassle of getting gels done! Anyone else tried them?

Having long hair i really should make more effort with it than i normally do as i usually just shove it up in a pony but i love pretty plaits and braids and so this was my first attempt at a milk maid braid after seeing a video of Zoe London doing it on Instagram, i had to have a go as it looked so easy! I am so pleased with the outcome and surprised that it stayed up all day, this will be a great hairstyle in the summer with the warmer weather as it keeps it out of your face all day. However, i think i need to work on tidying up the presentation of it at the back! But its not bad for a first attempt! What do you think?

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like pastels? Do you like milk maid braids?

Mothers Day gift ideas | Fragrance Direct

With Mothers Day just under a week away now i wanted to share with you some gorgeous perfume gift sets which would make ideal presents for all of your lovely mothers, i always try to appreciate what my mum does for me every day but its always great to spoil her as much as you can on this special day! These two perfume gifts sets that i will be sharing with you are from Fragrance Direct who stock fragrances, makeup,skincare and more, so if perfume isn't something your mum particularly uses there are many other things to choose from!

Marc Jacobs Dot Gift Set 50ml Fragrance Direct £44.99* | Link

This Marc Jacobs gift set comes with the 50ml Dot Eau de parfum spray, 75ml Dot radiant body lotion and 75ml of the Dot fresh shower gel. I love gift sets which include all 3 because the perfume combined with either the shower gel or body lotion really helps to prolong the smell.

Firstly lets appreciate how absolutely amazing the packing of both the perfume and the shower gel and body lotion are! A lady bird first springs to mind with the specific colours and dots! The bottle is probably one of the prettiest that i have ever seen, it definitely helps with the overall appeal of buying the perfume in the first place, i for one definitely think the packaging determines whether i buy something or not!

The fragrance of Dot is a lush and fruity floral scent. The scents in the perfume 'captivate with a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragon fruit, and sweet honeysuckle. The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with addictive jasmine mingled with energising notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine dry down of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks'. It really is such a gorgeous fruity scent for spring and summer and as described it contains lots of different scents and i found the lasting power of it was really good which is something i always look for in a perfume. I'm also a fan of the other Marc Jacobs fragrances especially Daisy, Fragrance direct also stocks the other gift sets of the Marc Jacobs range too if those fragrances are more of your mums cup of tea!

Nina Ricci Ricci Gift Set 50ml Fragrance Direct £36.95* 

The Nina Ricci Ricci gift set includes the 50ml Ricci Ricci Eau de parfum and the audacious body lotion of the scent. Again i love combining a body lotion with the perfume as the scent really gets a chance to sink into your skin and last for longer.

The packaging again is so pretty and especially of the bottle, i love the rich plum shade of the perfume bottle and the gorgeous detailing of ribbon on the top of the bottle. Its really simplistic with the one colour used throughout but its very effective and elegant.

This beautiful scent is another which is perfect for spring and summer and it composes of a medley of floral freshness. The scent can be described as 'featuring top notes of Rhubarb zest and bergamot. Heart notes feature moonflower,Indian Tuberose and Centifolia Rose while base notes boost patchouli and sandalwood'. Again the lasting smell of this is great and i got loads of compliments wearing this, my usual fragrances usually lose their smell after an hour, so i am very impressed!

Both of these perfumes and gift sets are the perfect fragrances for spring with their floral and juicy secents, they will also look amazing on anyones dressing or makeup table! Fragrance Direct stock these as well as many other beautiful scents if you're looking for one for your mum for mothers day! Other ideas for Mothers Day that i have in mind if you are on a budget and want to be bit more creative are homemade hampers which could be themed, such as a pamper one or just simply filled with all the things that your mum loves, others things could be a homemade afternoon tea, a day trip somewhere, a collage of all of your pictures together, there really are so many great ideas if you're on a budget, having a look at pinterest is great for inspiration too!

What do you think of these perfume gift sets? Whats your favourite perfume? What are you buying for Mothers Day?

Love heart swing shirt dress* - Laundry Boutique 
Necklace - Topshop
Hat - Forever 21
Socks - Primark
Shoes - Primark

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Since October last year the Burberry heart print shirt was loved by everyone and pretty much circulated around all of the shops after creating pretty much identical versions! So when i saw a slightly different take on the shirt from Laundry Boutique in a dress form i fell in love! For those of you who aren't familiar with the online shop they pretty much sell everything that you could want from clothes to accessories and at really reasonable prices! This dress in particular was from their bloggers fashion section and Its such a great fit and i absolutely love it, i feel like a little school girl teaming it with my frilly socks and Mary Jane's, pretty sure i was wearing almost the same when i was in primary school haha!

Laundry Boutique have also kindly offered a 10% off discount for all of my UK readers, just enter sleekchic10 at the checkout!

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like shirt dresses? Have you heard of Laundry Boutique before?

Spring wishlist

1. Aloha print joni jeans - Topshop  £38 | Link
2. Aztec print shorts - New Look £12 | Link
3. Co-ord Printed crop top - Oh my love £28 | & Co-ord Printed shorts - Oh my love £28 
4. Glitter round sunglasses - Asos £10 | Link
5. Floral jumpsuit - Missguided £29.99 |  Link
6. White caged sandals New Look  £24.99 | Link

This is by far my most favourite wishlist that i have created and i wont be happy unless i end up buying all of this! I also have my summer holidays in mind and these would all be essentials for that!

1. These Topshop Joni jeans are a fairly new release which have pretty much gone around the whole of Instagram this last week, if spring was an item of clothing then it would probably be these! I'm not too sure what i would wear with them though, something plain probably but i would love to see how others style them first!

2. My love for New Look really has grown this year and i love all of their spring range, these shorts are really lightweight and are a cool fabric which will be great for hot weather on holiday, i love the aztec pattern too.

3. I have been searching for the perfect first co-ord for myself to purchase, ive certainly been too picky but i have definitely found the most amazing set ever and i am glad i waited!! Buying the two together actually works out quite a lot for my student budget so i'm saving this for a treat for when i finish writing my dissertation, there is no better incentive to finish than that!

4. A girl can never own too many pairs of sunglasses and its about time i bought a quirky pair, these round ones are perfect and such a cheap price.

5. I've never really worn jumpsuits as i don't think they would suit me because of my height but after discovering midi skirts suit me i want a jumpsuit too! This floral one from Missguided is super cute and it could be worn for nights out too!

6. Lastly is these unbelievable sandals which i have been looking for in my size for almost 3 weeks now ahh! As soon as they are back in stock they go again, priced at only £25 there is no wonder why these are so popular, i will get these if its the last thing i do!

Thanks for reading! What do you think of my wishlist? Do you like any of these items? What are you currently lusting after for spring?

OOTD | Spring knit

Spring knit jumper* - Britfash 
Skirt - New Look
Socks - Topshop
Sandals - Primark

I hope you're all having a lovely week! This gorgeous spring knit jumper arrived in the post yesterday from the lovely BritFash who are a relatively new online store which now has over 20 British brands being sold on their site, including clothing and accessories. I picked the lovely spring knit in the mint green colour which is one of my favourite pastel colours and the quality of this knit is second to none, most jumpers i own usually end up providing not much warmth and wear quite thin but this jumper has really impressed me and its perfect for spring like/unpredictable weather. Its also now at a special price of only £9.99 which is an absolute steal for this beautiful knit! The jumper also comes in a variety of different spring/pastel colours which are all equally as gorgeous, i have my eyes on the yellow one next!

I've teamed it with my new look skirt which i picked up last week, it was one of those moments when you see something and know that you have to have it there and then, much like all of my purchases really hehe. Again i'm sticking with the pastel trend i just cant get away from it, i love how pretty and feminine all of the colours are. I really like mixing 2 sets of pastel colours together and think they really compliment one another. I cant wait to get more wear out of both of these in the summer!

BritFash have also kindly offered all of my readers to get a 10% discount off your order with the discount code: 10OFF1. Be sure to check them out and happy shopping!

Thanks for reading! What do you think of this outfit? Do you like the pastels combination? Have you heard of BritFash?

Debenhams #Lovedenim

Who doesn't love a well dressed man?! As well as loving female fashion i love scrolling through Lookbook and viewing men's style and trends. When i saw Stylonylon had created a competition with Debenhams to win £500 based on creating two mood boards with a casual and smart outfit for a male a i thought it would be a great idea to be creative. Not only would also be great to give something back to my boyfriend who religiously takes my outfit pictures when requested hehe! This is something a bit different to what i usually post but to any men out there who read my blog or for those with a man in your life i hope you like my outfit inspiration!

1. Navy washed high roll t shirt - Topman 
2. Lee denim grey washed jeans - Debehams 
3. Black Biker jacket - River Island 
4. Clarks suede lace up shoes - Debenhams
5. Navy twist Beanie hat - River Island 
First up is this super cool and casual look which in this instance could be worn to a gig. Biker jackets are so effortlessly cool and versatile as they can be dressed up or down,day or night. I LOVE this t-shirt and i would also wear this myself if i could! Tie dye was very much in last year and still seems to be around and the wash of this one is perfect. Good shoes on a man are essential and are one of the first things i look at, brogues are really casual but still look smart without being too over the top for a gig.

1. Jeff Banks black straight leg jeans - Debenhams 
2. White button down shirt - Topman 
3. Gingham bow tie - Asos 
4. Grey Blazer - Jack Jones 
5. Red Herring Brogues - Debenhams 

Dressing up for a night out and dinner is definitely my favourite thing to do as i'm sure many men do as well! This is my favourite outfit of the two that i created and it is so in fashion with female trends too, check the gingham bow tie out! Its a  more unique option to a standard (boring) tie! The monochrome look with the jeans and shirt looks fab with the grey blazer, the whole outfit looks really pristine and i would certainly not mind rocking up to a restaurant with my boyfriend dressed like this!

Thanks for reading, i hope you enjoyed my male clothing inspiration! Do you like a well dressed man? Which is your favourite outfit?
