Spring/ it's still quite cold OOTD

Now that I have a job, I have had to get back in to the swing of coordinating nice outfits everyday. Being a student for three years and then in an almost constant state of pyjamas when I was job hunting, my dress sense has been quite relaxed for a while. So when I heard the good news and then went to look in my wardrobe to plan a first day outfit, I was faced with a distinct lack of smart 'office' wear! Of course I've used that as an excuse to do lots of shopping :)
I call this outfit, 'spring is in the air...along with quite a lot of wind and rain so don't ditch the tights yet...' What do you think?
Hope you're all having a good week and looking forward to yet another Bank Holiday! What's everyone got planned?

Thanks for reading,

Cheeky, bet you clicked on this because you thought I'd made a spelling mistake! No I checked the spelling, this is the new scent from Soap and Glory and as usual it's amazing.
It's got fresh green mandarin, sicilian lemon and fresh orange peel oils in the formula which I'm guessing is what makes it smell so great. Just like all of the other Soap and Glory products it is really rich and moisturising and I don't know about you but I love shower gel in a pump bottle.
The greedy shopping monster inside me is telling me I need to go out and buy the Orangeasm body butter but I still have countless moisturisers from christmas to use up! We'll see...

Have you had a whiff of this in your local boots yet?
Who's tried it and what did you think?

Lace, backpacks and fishtail plaits

I've been finding myself dressing a bit more 'grungy' lately, I think I'm either trying to relive my teen years or trying to be an extra on Mad Fat Diary. I even went as far to rip my own jeans! 
Luckily it went better than when my 13 year old self attempted it...
They are quite old and faded Topshop Leigh Jeans which I never wore anymore because they'd seen better days, who would have known cutting holes in the knees could give them a new lease of life! I think the lacy top from H&M makes it a bit more feminine and the backpack from Primark adds even more 90s grungy-ness. 
I discovered this hair style when I was attempting some pretty milkmaid braids like this but failed because my hair is too short! But I played around and found out I could manage this pretty hairstyle which I shall call, 'milkmaid braids that have fallen down your head'... or something.
It's really easy, you just separate your hair messily into two sections, and do to fishtail plaits starting just behind your ears. Then twist them backwards and cross them over, tucking the ends of the hair under, and pin in place. I like it to look messy so I pulled at the roots and tousled it until I was happy with it and then sprayed it with hairspray and that's it!

Tweet or Instagram me pictures if you give this a try :)

Have a nice weekend!

Hope you had a Lush Easter...

Hope you all had a nice Easter and a lovely four day weekend for those of you who had one! I very much enjoyed stuffing my face with chocolate. Luckily instead of more chocolate, Craig bought me this little treat from one of my favourite shops! 
Lush Funny Bunny contains a fluffy egg, a bunch of carrots and two bunny bubble bars, all wrapped up in a cute little scarf, which Craig suggested I use as a bandana... think I'll pass on that one.
I've used one of the little bunny bubble bars so far which was FAB. It made my bath all pink and smelt like vanilla.
I had one of the fluffy eggs last year too which you can read about here. And I'm very excited to try the carrots which apparently smell like oranges, lemons and blackcurrant! Yess please.

Have you tried any of Lush's Easter range?

This gift and all of the individual products mentioned here are still available to buy here!
