Black Laced With Blue

Top: Ted Baker/Jeans: Topshop/Jacket: Topshop, almost identical here/Boots: Dune/Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

This pretty, sheer lace top from Ted Baker was a sale piece I managed to snap up before it sold out. I'm in love with the endless detail: from the neckline to the ribbon tie it has at the back (I forgot to take photos of that). I have a thing about lace and leather, so pairing this top with this Topshop jacket was kinda obvious. To be honest, I reckon you can throw a leather jacket over most outfits and 9/10 times it'll look good.

How Much Does My Face Cost?

I first saw this post on Annaboho and thought that I'd give it a go too. I'm featuring products that I use day to day/the ones that I use the most often. This doesn't mean I use of the the products pictured all at once, I often mix and match for different looks. So here goes:

 Estée Lauder Double Wear Compact (I use a darker shade as a bronzer) - £31
Tom Ford Lip Color in Indian Rose (review/swatches coming very soon) - £37
Sephora Collection 8-piece Professional brush set - roughly £49 ($75)
Total = £366.99

Some of you might think that's an absurd amount of money and some of you might spend just as much or more, but we all know we all buy products we don't need. It's just one of the problems of being a bit of a make up junkie. The products here range from £3 to almost £50, but I think it's safe to say that I'm mostly a high end kinda gal.

Jumper: Markus Lupfer/Shirt: The Kooples, similar here/Skirt: River Island

First outfit post of the reboot, woooo... Anyway, I had to feature this wonderful Markus Lupfer jumper which I got online from Coggles (it's sadly sold out now). I feel like I use the word "loser" a lot, so add that to the fact it features pink sequins and it's practically made for me. If you haven't heard of Markus Lupfer then definitely check out his designs. They're all fun, cute and youthful with a lot of slogans without being too OTT. I'm really loving the SS15 collection and hopefully I'll get my hands on a few pieces soon - particularly lusting after this look.
Let me know what you think of Markus Lupfer below and if you have any pieces

The Maine - English Girls

I haven't done a music post since I rebooted my blog, so I feel like it's about time.
The Maine are a band I loved when I was growing up and I must admit, I've had a lapse in listening to them now I'm a bit older. They're a band that have had some darker days of recent years, but it's safe to say that they are back. Their new single English Girls is ridiculously catchy, it's infectious. The single comes from their fifth album American Candy, which is out March 31st and is available to pre-order on iTunes and basically all other outlets now. This song is a fun, pop-punk/rock gem that I've had on repeat since I first heard it. Watch the official lyric video here and let me know what you think!

A Californian Summer, Part 3: Manhattan Beach

Shorts: American Apparel/Top: Topshop (really old)/Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Just writing a quick post today on Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles for part 3 of documenting my summer of 2014. This beach is everything you could ask for or dream of when thinking of California. Sandy beach, boardwalk and pier and also south-facing so you can watch the sunset. It's also quite good to get away from the other really popular beaches in LA like Santa Monica, Venice etc as I had a nice a peaceful evening just reading and watching the sun go down. I don't really have anything else to say besides that, it was perfect.
