Barry M Spring Polishes

The sun is peeking his little head out occasionally the last couple weeks which is getting me really excited for spring, better weather, colourful, picnics, cocktail lunches and you guessed it shopping for the SS collection. 

Alongside the clothes, shoes and bags means you need to accessorize right, and painted groomed nails are a big part of that especially when people insist on getting their feet out, against my objections. Feet are gross. I am really the loving the Barry m collection, when I first get into spring it is all about the pastels for me and they are so pretty. The gelly polishes also last a lot longer too and have a better finish in my opinion. I highly recommend these and at the affordable price of £3.99

What are your favourite colours?

Homeware haul #1

So me and my man are deciding to rent now rather than get a mortgage straight away. So we will be saving up for the deposit over the next few months. In turn this means more shopping, yay!

So I've been buying a few bits and bobs here and there so we have a nice home when we move and everything isn't just bare. As you can see in the pictures above I picked up a pug pillow, I will probably be getting another as we will have a corner sofa and one on it's own will look lonely. We also got this pillow as after we have moved in and settled down we will be getting a little pug puppy. Really can't wait wanted a puppy for so long. I also got this cute little box with 'things' on for £3 from primark. I thought we could keep our keys in there just in the hallway. 

I've brought quite a bit of kitchen stuff that isn't really interesting but I do love this little snack heart bowl thing, I thought it would be cute to put little sweets or snacks out when we have guests over or just want sweets aha. I also got these adorable canisters for my tea, coffee and sugar which were only £5 each from Wilkinson's. Also as we also need more hearts everywhere I have a large heart bowl and a heart chopping board.

Are any of you moving out soon? What bits are you picking up?

My Top 5 Spring Perfumes

It's coming to spring now and I like to change up my everyday perfumes when we get into the different seasons. To me, spring is floral and light scents, so most of my choices will be centered around that idea. I have a range of perfumes I mix between each day depending on my mood. I've got a fair collection of perfumes now I am trying to refrain from buying any more at the minute, I'll let you know how that goes.

Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle (Perfect for every occasion)
The Body Shop - White Musk Smoky Rose (Perfect to keep in your bag on the go)
Avon - Imagine (Perfect for everyday)
Viktor and Rolf - Flowerbomb (Perfect for a meal out with the girls)
Yardley - English Rose (Perfect for a picnic in the park)

So these are my current favorites and a beautiful floral scent to an outfit, perfect for spring and long lasting. What are your favourite scents? Anything I could be persuaded into picking up?
