Lace Up

Black Fringed Bag // Primark
Grecian Leaf Gold Headband // Claires

I have to say I have never understood the fascination with the little black dress, but the little white dress is something else!

I have plenty of  little white dresses in my wardrobe in both bodycon and skater styles and I just love them - they are perfect for spring and summer and is one of my fave colours to wear, particularly if its white mesh on a sporty look!. I just find wearing black boring if worn more than once, or unless I'm feeling gothic for a day..sorry not sorry! :)

This lace up Missguided number gives a nod to the seventies trend which looks to carry on in to the A/W15 collections as well. I had hung up my tassels and flares for a little while a couple of months ago as though I would go back to re-embracing the trend for later this year. Am too excited about wearing brown suede and tassels amongst the brown leaves and autumness this year.

I have also finally got myself a pair of gladiator lace up heels, yay! abit late on this trend but wanted to sneak them in before the end of this season and I will most definitely be taking these on my honeymoon to Italy in a couple of months eeek!!

If you are also heading on on a late summer holiday and desperately need to get your hands on some new sandals Public Desire have some amazing ones including tons of lace up ones like mine! why not check out their summer sale here

Navajo Print Dress // Cosmic Drifters
Navajo Fringe Brown Suede Boots // Missguided
Coin Folklore Choker // Topshop

Lovin this beaut little dress from Cosmic Drifters! It's navajo design with compasses, medicine bag, dream catcher and thunderbird illustrations caught my eye instantly as I love Native American culture and it soared straight to the the top of my wishlist! 

Cosmic Drifters have been on my radar for a little while, all their designs are illustrated by their lovely team and are made to order in the UK which I think gives them a special edge! 

Keep an eye on thier Instagram page as they give you up and coming sneak previews of stuff up and coming, The tarot print due to be added to the website in September is sooo swoonworthy! 

Love, Sarah x

St Tropez Gradual Tan - In Shower Lotion

St Tropez Gradual Tan - In Shower Lotion...does it work as well as other gradual tanning lotions, or just a tanning no no? ...

After seeing this advertised around online a few weeks back before release I was instantly intrigued. I have not really adventured much in to fake tanning products over recent years mainly due to that I am always terrified I will turn too orange or streaky and I can't stand the smell. I have tried a range of gradual tanning products from brands such as Dove, Garnier, Famous Daves and wayy back in the day I used to buy little instant tanning wipes (can't remember what make they were!) for £2.50 from Superdrug which actually did a really good job! Have not seen them in stores since the early 2000s though!

Gradual tan is great for fellow tanning skeptics as you can control the level of colour you go, the colour builds up gradually with use so the more often you use it the darker the tan you get .

I liked the sound of the new St Tropez Tan lotion as you could put it on in the shower which would suggest it doesn't smell horrid and after seeing loads of testers reviews giving it really good scores I thought I would give the ol fake tan another chance!

With sweet almond oil its also clinically proven to hydrate the skin for up to 24 hours, so there's no need to moisturise afterwards, making it perfect for busy lifestyles. I have decided to try it for 7 days on my legs as my upper body tans really easily but my legs not so much if at all!

How does it work? 

1) Fully cleanse and wash in a warm shower

2) With the shower off, generously apply the lotion in circular motions with your hands to your wet skin to create an even coverage - Don't forget to wash your hands afterwards!

3) Wait three mins before stepping back in to the shower to rinse off fully with warm water

4) Gently dry yourself (pat dry) before getting dresses. after showering the self tan actives will start to work, developing gradually


Have used about four times whilst having a shower. Its definitely not like other gradual tanning lotions where u get a subtle glow within a few hours after first use so if your thinking of applying this just the day before a night out, don't! you will need to start using it much earlier!

Its recommended for use as a day to day glowy tan which is exactly what it does! You need to try and include it in your shower routine as I reckon it fades pretty quick if you don't.

So as pros go it does exactly what it says on the bottle and from online copy I have read, but if you are expecting it to be a good holiday tan or for evening out I wouldn't recommend it and would say you need to try something else or go down the instant tan route rather than gradual tan which I don't know this came across in the advert for it as well. For me its not really come up as a dark enough tan that I would want for summer nights out or a holiday but perfect for day to day wear.

Does it streak or smell horrid?

smell wise, its just lightly scented but dosent stain towels, clothes or make u smell horrible so top marks there!

I haven't had any streaky issues with it but have noticed the odd darker blob on my left foot (see above pic!) which I'm not sure how or why its darker there, maybe different type of skin. I did exfoliate my legs before use so not sure if this had any effect on how dark the tan goes but for my skin I def needed to exfoliate as well cus my skins very bumpy! my feet are all around slightly darker any way as they naturally tan more than my legs do!

The moisturiser almond oil stuff that's in it also works a treat, haven't used any other body lotions since and my skin is notably softer

So would I recommend? yes! but only to those who want a subtle glow for day wear not for evenings or holidays I'm afraid!

Black Milk - Egypt Limited Collection

Gold Crescent Headpiece // Regal Rose (now in summer sale!)
Black Bandeau Top // New Look
Sandals // New Look

Sooo excited to finally have my first Black Milk piece after lusting after this famous Aussie brand's stuff for several years now! And I think I've have def picked a really good un! 

Black Milk are well known for their collections that include Disney Princesses, Marvel & DC, Lord of the Rings to name but a few as well as these fab reversible skirts and dresses which have two prints on either side so you get two outfits for the price of one which is pretty darn cool. 

I opted for this beautiful Egyptian print skirt with one side being the goddess Isis and the other Egyptian women arranging flowers or gathering reeds. not entirely sure really if they are flowers or reeds! Which more brands made skirts or dresses like this so we could have two outfits in one! 

As the most Black milk collections they usually make a few pieces with a similar style print but on different garments so with the Egyptian print there is also a couple of pairs of leggings to choose from too if you fancy these instead or as well as. 

I also couldn't resist getting these Topshop metallic tattoos to match as well. how cool are they! Metallic tattoos have been everywhere this summer and in almost any design you can think of! 

These Topshop ones though I have to say didn't last as long as other transfers I've used. Not sure if its just cus they are metallic or maybe the Topshop ones were not as good and long lasting as rival brands. They only lasted me a day and a half before rubbing off to the point where you couldn't really tell what they were so had to scrub the remaining stuff off! :(  

Have you given metallic tattoos a try? let me know if you have also found the are not as long lasting!

Just a Girl

Green Knitted Stripe Tee // Topshop (Sold Out)
Hayden Ripped Boyfriend Jeans // Topshop
Silver Sneakers // New Look
Elephant Necklace // Claires
Blue Bindi // Brighton Lanes

I was channelling my inner Gwen the other day. My ultimate style icon. 

I dug out my collection of bindis I have found in various shops over the years and teamed it up with this knit stripe tee from TopShop for a little bit of 90s girlness. I actually shot this before hearing the news about Gwen and Gavin Rosdale. What the hell? Thought they were one of these couples that was gonna be forever :( and then Kermit and Miss Piggy on the same day!! Sad times! 

Back on to the stripy tee though, its def one of my fave newbie items in my wardrobe and seems to be alot of others as well thinking this too as this has totally sold out too! Please make more Topshop and in different colours! A girl can never own too many stripy tees, like Gwen's super cool No Doubt looks they just never go out of style.

Love, Sarah x
