I'm obsessed with blazers, I love how they dress up jeans and plain t-shirt. Whilst browsing through Zara I spotted this little beauty. It also came in shocking pink.

Navy goes with so much and is an all season colour (see how I justify my shopping) so clearly it was a crime not to buy it.

I got it in a small which is a little roomy, but I thought with a jumper in autumn/winter it would be perfect.

How nautical is the inside! I look like a proper little sailer (that can't swim)

Inside of the sleeve is bright navy blue. I just love how well this blazer was made. It's absolutely fantastic quality for £40.

Sunday lunch

Today were having a family gathering, and I thought I would do a quick OOTD.

Blouse- Whistles
Trousers- River Island
Wedges- New Look

The blouse was purchased on Friday. I love a silk blouse, even more so when it's in the sale. I picked it up in House of Fraser. It was £45 reduced from £95. Absolute bargain.

Dior glow

So recently everyones been talking about Dior skin nude glow in Aurora. Its one of those products that I was in two minds about trying. I'm currently loving hoola by benefit so why change when that's working! Of course when I tried 3 different department stores and found they were all out the hunt began. Why is it you always want what you can't have.

Anyway I live quite near a debenhams that wouldn't be overly popular to visit so I tried there an score they had some in stock.

It comes in the usual navy pouch which I personally throw away instantly, I just don't see the point.

Here is the luscious compact in all it's glory. It's one of those compacts that makes you want to touch up your makeup in public-sad but true.

Anyways onto what it looks like inside. It has all the makings of a great summer bronzer, silky to touch, slightly shimmery and not overly orange looking. How wrong was I, this is so orange on I was just completely disappointed. It's definitely not a contour bronzer, it's too streaky and fake looking. I think the only way I may use this up is to either wear it as a blusher or give it to my mum and hope she might like it.

Even in the picture it looks orange what on earth was I thinking.

Next up is a Dior product I can't rave enough about.

I saw this highlighter on a few blogs recently and like the above I bought it without trying. Im so happy with this product I honestly urge everyone to go out and buy this immediately. It's the most amazing highlighter I have ever owned.

Initially I thought is it just bobbi browns shimmer brick (not a fan of those even though I own them all) but it's so not. It's not shimmery, and doesn't make me look like a disco ball. Bonus

This is the side I tend to use the most. I love the pearl and light golden mixed together.

A little pot of magic and it's friends

You put your makeup on at 7am and want it to stay in place all day. There are so many products out there that say they will do that. Over the years I have wasted so much money on lotions and potions trying to make my makeup last and they never worked (big shock I know).

Well I think I have finally found those products that will keep my makeup in place. Let me introduce you to my little pot of magic & co.

It's a fantastic transparent finishing powder that really does keep my t-zone oil Free and my foundation stay put. I usually apply it after I put my foundation on then again when I have my bronzer and blush on.

Lastly to set my makeup I spray fix + three times all over my face to keep my makeup in place.

Below is the strobe cream. It's a great foundation base that really makes the foundation glow and stay put through a busy day.

Here we have the prep&prime skin base. The reason I bought this was because they had ran out of strobe cream and the MA recommended this as the next best thing. I really don't find it that useful, it doesn't help my makeup last and doesn't give skin that silky feel that so many other primers do.

A mini splurge

For as long as I can remember I have been a huge fan of all things mulberry. There such an iconic English brand, simple in detail but still have that wow factor.

Like all girls I'm obsessed with bags and am always searching for my holy grail crook of the arm winner. Haha.

I always thought the Bayswater was the big girls bag and not for me, I turned my attention to the alexa until I saw them in person that is.

I knew the alexa was a splody leather but I never imagined it to feel the way it did. From a distance it looks gorgeous, structured with a quirky twist. But as soon as I touched it I was turned off. It's just too soft, so soft that it feels cheap to me. I wish it came in the same leather as the Bayswater.

After my disappointment I shuffled on round the shop and lifted the big girls bag off the shelf. Wow wow wow instant love.

The saving began and the rest is history.

Meet by beautiful arm candy :)

Mulberry are celebrating their 40th anniversary hence the big 40.

The bag is so deep inside and can be let out at the sides to make it even bigger.

Feeble attempt at a half body pose.

Your feet smell like sweets...

I have been searching high and low since April for the perfect summer pumps. I wanted an open toe pump in a colour that would blend in with whatever I was wearing.

Easy task some may say, I say it was flipping hard work. I'd almost given up till I spotted these beauties. Below I present my sweet smelling shoes.

I love when shoes have rings inside, it makes them all the more special.

The little crown on the side of the shoe is so cute.

Here they are on. I love them so much!!!
