Summer colours

By Sarah Redman

This lovely little post contains a few outfits for my friend Georgia’s (of Life’s little Ponderings) 20th birthday!

I am loving this sunny weather and so are my girls. So for G’s birthday BBQ and night out we all chose summer brights for our outfits – sorry there are no full length photos (we may have been more focused on the Pimms than the photos).

From L to R: Sarah Redman, Alicia Berman (AB), Georgia Plummer (GP)

I wore my new patterned crop top from New Look (Blue Tribal Print Crop Vest £5.99), AB wore a simple red cami from Miss Selfridge, while birthday girl GP wore a yellow tee from ASOS (Petite top in texture £22.00) and stunning a statement necklace from Zara (retailing between £19.99 & £29.99).

My outfit was completed with a nude body con skirt from H&M and wooden chunky heals from Clarks. AB wore a white skort also from Miss Selfridge (Origami skort £30.00) and her shoes were nude heals from Russell and Bromley. GP competed her look with a floral patterned skort from ASOS (Premium skort in bright floral £35.00) and some awesome wedges from Topshop (Wish Buckle Espadrilles Black £42.00). Yes they are on my wish list so I knew them straight away!

Tartan dress: my new favourite print

By Sarah Hugill

For a dress that is versatile, suitable for a night out on the town with a pair of Chelsea boots or for a more casual look with a pair of converses this dress from Miss Guided is perfect. I wore a statement silver necklace to add to the look and found the dress easy to wear with a skater dress style flattering for most body shapes!

Daring in red

By Sarah Hugill

To mark myself turning 20, of course, I had to do something in Bournemouth.

I borrowed this low v- neckline dress, from my fellow flatmate @rio_blake, you’ve gotta love living with other girls!

The dress is from Miss Guided.

This body-con number ensures to suck you in, in all the right places, and who doesn’t want to stand out on their birthday and with this colour you certainly don’t blend into the crowd!

Christmas candles

By Sarah Redman

With the forth day of advent drawing to a close, it is fair to say most people are getting into the festive spirit. I am currently writing this listening to a bit of Chris Rea – Driving Home for Christmas. It’s December, don’t judge!

So in this festive spirit I thought I would share with you my budget decoration. If you have read previous posts you will know I like a candle or two, so here are my two new tea light candle holders:

20131204-190738.jpgThese two red stars are available from most larger Sainsbury’s stores, unfortunately they are not available online. (Tea lights not included)

I think they look lovely when lit, the light disperses through the red glass creating a lovely red glow around the candle, giving it a real Christmas nights feel.

Colour me green

By Sarah Redman
I recently acquired this fantastic concealer set; ‘No Show Camouflage Fix‘ from POP via asos.com from their flash beauty sale and have been loving the green redness corrector section. The green blends with your skin, changing red marks into the same colour as your skin, evening out your skin tone – great if you have problem skin or for when you get that one pesky spot just before a night out!

With everything I buy, whilst i may love a brand or product, i am also a sucker for a bargain. So i am always combing the high street for a cheep version that still works, or a great offer on that product i love. For this product, whilst i cannot find a replacement that meets the standard set in being able to buy four different types on concealer in one, I have found a ‘Green Corrector Stick‘ from Natural Collection (boots.com) for only £1.99, bargain as this is the bit i use the most. Queue, me and Nicola running across to Boots after work and snapping up the last two there before they closed!

(The green is more of a pastel colour than shown in the picture)
