Top Picks: Zara’s New In

Hello gang!

I have recently been into a couple of Zaras’ and I have to say…..they are smashing it! So, what better than to do a little bit of shopping and show you the best of what’s New In at Zara?! This is only a small snap shot, so definitely go check it out!

I love this embroidered striped top because it can be so versatile. Dress it up for the office with some dress pants, or dress it down with some high wasted jeans.


This Cross Body Bag is so cute and perfect to add a pop of spring/summer colour to an outfit! I love the pearl detail. (It is also available in black if the pink is a bit much for you!)


This coat with frilled cuffs is the perfect feminine mix of class and sass.

I am picturing this lace boatneck top with a pair of high wasted jean shorts with a big floppy hat. It is total #holidayvibes, take me to the beach!

This leather embroidered jacket is serious jacket goals. It’s not an everyday jacket, but omg, I think we all need this in our wardrobe artillery.


This short sleeve dress is a great basic to have in the closet.


I love this oversized denim shirt. The detail on the back gives it a little extra something and it is such an easy addition to an outfit.


These are my seven picks for the top items from Zara’s new in. Let me know if you have bought any of these or have some of your own favourites.

Until next time guys,



Sunday Shopping

Hello lovelies!

Happy Monday! I did a little bit of weekend shopping yesterday and just had to share it with you! I originally went into TJ Maxx to get a new handbag as the one I always use it a bit big (this is the link for my What’s in my Handbag video, so check it out!) but as it always goes, I go into a store for one thing and come out with at least four completely unrelated items! Instead of grabbing a new handbag, I ended up in the cosmetics area, and you guys know that is particularly dangerous for me. Within minutes I had an arm full of things I wanted. Brushes, makeup, oils, cleansers, you name it and I had it in my hot little hands. But, then sad reality kicked in and I had to narrow down my choices to just a few and here is what I ended up with.



I really liked the look of these two items. These are the Ellen Tracy Blush and Highlighter and Colour Corrector pallets. The colours in the blush and highlight are so pretty and very pigmented! I have never actually tried colour correcting (I know, where have I been?!) but I thought this pallet was really sweet and it helps that it comes with a little guide of what each colour is for.


I also really liked the look of these Ellen Tracy eye shadows because they are all matte and I LOVE matte shadows and it is surprisingly difficult to find all matte pallets. Let me know if you have any you love! I am not so sure how much I will like these because the swatch didn’t seem to be very pigmented, so I will have to try these out and see, but for just a couple of dollars, it’s worth a try! I also had to grab a new contour brush (which was the one I ended up with out of the six I had in my cart) because the brush I have been using is just too big for what I want to do, I am very excited to use that!

Now for all of you fashion lovers, I also found my way to the shoe area and ended up with two pairs. I am IN LOVE with them. I mean how cute are these?! Come on, tell me they are cute!


I grabbed a pair of smart heels as well because you can never have enough work wear, and these are supposed to be very comfortable, so I will be putting these to the test. From what I could tell from trying them on and doing a lap around the isles, these are going to be fab to wear for a long day out on business!


As always, there was so much more that I wanted to sneak up to the cash register with me, but I am happy with what I ended up with!

Did you guys do any weekend shopping of your own? Let me know what you bought!

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead!

Fashion Alert: Amour&Mer Swimwear

Hello my dears,

Today’s post revolves around swimwear. I know, I know summer has officially closed and we are now into the cosy jumpers of fall, but all that means is it’s time for a holiday somewhere exotic and warm! Right?! This also means an excuse to continue shopping for new swimsuits. I recently found the Amour&Mer website and was immediately intrigued by their unique designs. Although there aren’t hundreds of suits to choose from, the styles that are available are so sassy and original! This one is my favourite, its called Mariko, and its just too cute to not share:

….and from the back, go ahead, fall in love:

I love the body wrap detail and how it’s offset with the opposite one shoulder. This is such a flirty look but still sophisticated, which is what I personally always aim for. It also looks like it would be so versatile so you can pair it with basically everything and anything. Obviously you can wear it to the beach, but I’m also thinking pool parties and warm weather hang outs with some cute shorts as well. It just screams wear me everywhere to me.

I think Mariko is just the right balance between subtle and attention grabbing, kind of effortless chic if you will. I can totally see this paired with a fringed, floaty cover up like this one from Victoria’s Secret and a panama hat like this one from Jigsaw:

Ok, so what about if you want to be a bit more creative with your styling? I know this might be a bit radical, but I would wear this for a night out. Crop tops are in, so pair this with a high waisted skirt for a fast, no effort evening look. I think a skirt like this one from H&M would be perfect! And for the daring, this suit would also be amazing under a sheer dress like this:

Lets face it, going to the beach isn’t always about relaxing and catching some sun, it’s sometimes about making a statement and feeling good in your own skin and hello folks, what better way to do that than rocking a sexy suit?! I am just in love with this particular one at the moment, I mean can you blame me?? Check out Amourmer.com for their other styles and more cheeky suits and let me know if you find one that you fall in love with ❤

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Thursday, until next time beauties


Carrying Around a 10lb Weight: AKA my Handbag

Well everyone, its a new week. How do we feel? I am feeling the Monday Blues a bit but I am excited to see some more shows in the Fringe! This last weekend my boyfriend and I went to a couple; a comedy show (that wasn’t too good, but hey, it was free!) and a ballet that was set to more contemporary music, which was interesting and I love dance so I am a pretty forgiving audience member. He had planned a massage and manicure sesh as well (a keeper right??) which was such a treat! If every weekend was like this last one, I would be one happy girl! Anyway, the massage was probably the best thing ever and was well needed as my neck and back are always really stiff. After I left the spa and started wandering around town again, I got thinking, the sore neck is probably due to, oh I dont know, the monster of a handbag I lug around with me everywhere! Although I may be complaining just slightly, I am totally in love with all of my handbags and refuse to give up anything that I normally carry around. So in my handbags case, this is a burden I am willing to bear. I also thought “why not share its contents with my lovely readers?” 🙂 So lets dive on in, here are what I consider to be the essentials any girl needs in her (totally beautiful) bag. Let me know what you guys have on your “must haves” handbag list ❤

The most important thing first and the only thing worth discussing: The “make up/everything I may need bag” within the bag. I never go anywhere, and I mean anywhere, without this little pouch of joy. I actually feel stressed if I go somewhere without it. It basically just puts my mind at ease that, with this bag, I will be prepared for most scenarios. Here is what it looks like:


So in here I have some mini hand and face wipes (which have come in handy a lot more than you may think, ha! handy…), a Maybelline FIT me concealer tube, a mini-brush from Maybelline, perfume tube (this one is Candies), a tampon (I mean, duh!), a chap stick (cocoa butter with SPF, my all-time fave), Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer in Ginger Bread, a mini MAC mascara, a little hydrating face spray and some good ole vitamin D pills (aka my happy pills because, you know, Scotland never sees the sun…). I normally also have a de-tangler hair brush in here, but I have switched from a Body Shop bag to this Birchbag which is a bit smaller, so the brush has been demoted to just living in the purse itself. Aaaaaaaand I think that’s all. I know I am missing a little lotion but I think I am pretty well covered otherwise!

A bit of a closer view, bit boring visually but you get the idea right??


On to the not as exciting stuff:

– I also always carry an umbrella. Where I come from, the “rainy state” as we like to call it, no one uses an umbrella, but hey, we do in Edinburgh, so I am never caught out without one.

-An extra carrier bag: since Scotland has started the 5p charge for carrier bags, I almost always have one in my bag. This one is from Lush, I think it is so cute!

-Extra hair tie, lip colour of the day, portable charger and headphones…ta daaaa!

Well all, that is what my everyday burden consists of and I tell you what….it is heavy but I just don’t think I could survive without it! What do you think? I am curious to know what you carry around with you everyday, so do share!


A Weekend In A Castle

Hello everybody!

How is everyone’s Tuesday going? The weather here has been pretty shocking and I cant tell if it makes the days go by faster or shorter… But this rainy weather is making m nostalgic of my weekend a few weeks ago that I got to spend at Melville Castle just outside of Edinburgh. The weather was fantastic and the castle was beautiful, set out in the country and so peaceful. We ate dinner and had a bottle of wine (just a warning — not vegan friendly, but they tried their best!) and did some Lush facemasks and had a really lovely time. Such a nice break! My mom and I went a little crazy with pictures and taking video so I thought I would try my hand at putting together a video. You guys…real talk…its hard!! and I could use some serious help if anyone has any tips or pointers 🙂 (please! I seriously need some work hehe) Anyway, take a peek at my weekend at Melville castle (p.s. it was very Forever 21 and H&M themed)

Friday: Mint Velvet trousers, lace sleeved top from Forever 21 (I think), black booties from Garage (I call them my kick around shoes haha) and an H&M dress for dinner

Saturday: Forever 21 Jeans (the fit on these is amazing and so cheap!), Forever 21 lace cami, H&M cardigan
