The Gucci Edit

I have absolutely adored Gucci’s 2016 collection, filled with embroidery, prints and bumble bee’s of course being a student i am not gifted with an unlimited amount of money so one must budget but still attain a stunning piece ‘similar’ to a Gucci ensemble, When visiting Next i went over to marvel at all the shoes when  i noticed this embroidery  beauty in the corner of my eye. At £26 this camera bag was an absolute steal. The embroidery is stunning with a floral detailing in the corner and beautiful colorful birds in the center. The bag is overall black with a glitter detailing strap which can be attached and detached. The bag is a great size especially for travelling and using as a camera bag which is what i intend to use it for.  Over all this bag is a great quality, good material and a fashionably stunning detailing on the front. I think this bag matches up well to a Gucci but a high street version for those gals who want some designer brands at high street prices.

Hope you enjoyed reading

April Favourites

 

Mikaela-Kate-My-Favorite-Things-710x234

Hello lovelies,

Today I am bringing you a favorites post, which is something i have never posted/done before. So here we go.

Firstly I got these lovely peep toe flat’s from H&M they have a snake skin like print and the leather is like a matte black which is lovely. I am addicted to black clothing and accessories and these shoes were just what i had been looking for, Especially with the weather gradually getting more nicer and for going travelling in the summer.

Speaking about H&M they are currently slaying with their new home section and did you know that H&M now do beauty and makeup, I didn’t either until i went in for a visit and i feel in love with the colours and the packaging. I went for Pure radiance powder blush in Sunrise pink. Slightly pigmented and swatched well on the skin still yet to try it on my cheeks but i will report back with a full review soon .

One of my favorite products is the Kiehl’s Radical moisturizer. This moisturizer is a very nourishing product and only a  little bit goes a long way. It is very light on the skin and feel’s completely weightless great for keeping the skin protected throughout the day. A great little addition into everyone’s skin care routine.

 

I am a lush addict, I always check my Instagram for recent lush additions especially their bubble bars and bath bombs. When doing some online shopping i noticed the SkyDancer bath bomb and to be honest i was more drawn into the look of the bath bomb before i even had an opportunity to smell it, Luckily it smells amazing and a percentage of the profits from this bath bomb goes to charity which is an even bigger incentive to buy this bath bomb.

Summer is on the cards soon so i thought i would invest in plenty of summer essentials especially some sunnies. I purchased these in Liverpool at Forever 21 and the rose gold case is from primark. I am obsessed with rose gold so this case was an absolute MUST. I really wanted a pair of sunglasses in this style with the cat eye flicks and these sunglasses have a very vintage feel and they look fab on too.

What are loving this month?

These are the most vintage and fabulous pair of sunnies I have found in a while. When browsing on ASOS as one does, i stumbled across these flattering beauty’s. What enticed me more was the chunky, dusty pink frames. They reminded me of frenchie from grease! completely pink and outrageous. The return of the kitten eye sunglasses are making a huge comeback for 2016 spring and summer collections and with big brands such as Quay Australia and ASOS clicking onto this trend you can bag yourself some great shades. Link to the pair i purchased in the photographs  from ASOS has been added below.

The must have clutch bag

Hello Lovelies

I come with a fashion/Accessory that Literally is so sparkly and amazing I couldn’t leave it in the shop and in fact I didn’t buy this as this is a Christmas present from my friend Nicholas. When shopping at Christmas he asked me the hardest question.. ‘What do you want for Christmas’ My reply being ‘Just surprise me’ . We were helping each other with last minute Christmas steals when we I had a nosy in accessorize and saw the holy grail of clutch bags. I couldn’t leave this majestic mermaid clutch behind. I turned into a crazy eyed magpie and grabbed the bag and clutched it close to my chest as i noticed a few other people had but similar intentions. Nick and Myself had a look and I said NO i am paying for it and to that point he grabbed it off me, proceeded towards the till and pulled out that plastic piece of payment to the cashier.. I couldn’t stop him and I felt slightly awful that he felt the need to buy me something so lovely but at the same time it also reminded me of how awesome my friends were and how grateful I am to have friends like this in my life.

So after the high of getting the most gorgeous clutch bag ever and having the most amazing friends ever. I felt like this beautiful clutch bag should be shared with the world.

So the clutch bag is from accessorize and I cant remember how much was paid for it but it is simply stunning why would you consider costing ? #Confessionsofashopaholic. The bag is completely embellished with sequins and the back of the clutch  is a  Glittery black and silver fabric. Their is one handle upon the side of the clutch and zip along the top. The inside has one separate compartment with the rest being open. The beading almost has an ombre affect as it starts off at gold tone,copper,orange,pink,lilac,blue then purple showing an array of colour similar to a rainbow. This clutch is simply draw dropping and certainly a great touch to an outfit to add that sense of extra glam and glitz. Really great size and well made Clutch.

~Summer Haul summer Essentials~

Hello Lovelies

I am so excited to Travel and get on a plane and escape the day to day grind of life, I always feel very refreshed and blessed after a holiday away their is something special about leaving your home to escape to somewhere else.

anyway, this is a few of my holiday essentials I have recently bought, so first the watermelon towel is from Asda and it cost £5 if you haven’t guessed I love watermelons! And I had to have this for my beside the pool chills and for the beach it’s very fresh and bright and a little it fun Asda have a selection of fun and quirky towels that are great extra to take away with you.
The next is my bikini this is truly a lovely set I bought at primark you can buy both separate or together the bottoms were £4 and the top £6 so altogether £10 BARGIN also I love the colors the neon pink against the blue and the flowers add a tropical element. It was the little tassels that added that sense of Middle East feel to the bikini that I loved.
The coconut milk  (£5.99 boots) I have still yet to try but I have heard really positive stuff about it I bought the conditioner as it’s the conditioning aspect that I focus on more when it comes to my hair it is sulfate free so it should protect all he natural oils in my hair and it has EGG WHITES actually egg whites in the formula this shall be interesting guys I will let you know the results soon!
AH the good old selfie stick (£8 primark)  I didn’t want to give in to popular cult trends but this one is too much fun not to get involved and I can film with the selfie stick !!! I’m thinking of doing a holiday film of all my travels ?
(Me and Alex got a tourist to take our photo last year and his finger print covered the corner of the picture 😦 )
So that is why I thought the selfie stick would be ideal.
The hand chain is so detailed and beautiful I am going to the Middle East so it had that element look to it and I couldn’t resist some bling and the price was hard to not say now £3     Primark and the laser cut tan detail sandals are perfect for a lovely day look very pretty and detailed and £4 primark again I had to have them.I hope you enjoyed my little recent shopping trip buys, I have so many more exciting posts to come in the following weeks hang tight everyone.

Love
