OOTD: Fear And Loathing

I wore:
Sunglasses- Primark
T-shirt- Topshop
Trousers- H&M
Necklaces- Equinox
Socks- Primark
Shoes- Primark

I picked up this t-shirt a few weeks ago, I spotted it on the sale rail in the little Topshop concession at work and sneakily put it aside to pick up after my shift I think it was only about £10.00 which is an absolute bargain. I finally wore my jelly shoes which are super comfortable and perfect for the beach, I also wore these lovely floral trousers which I bought for a job interview last month.
The Primark sunglasses were £2.00 and were my new favourites, I wore them pretty much all week, but unfortunately on the last day of our holiday one of the arms snapped in half so I will definitely have to search down a replacement pair.

Take Me To The Sea

 I want to be back in Tenby sitting on the beach watching Pete skim pebbles on the sea, it's literally my favourite place ever and each time we visit I can feel all my stress and anxiety melting away, Pete and I are hoping to get married there one day so we invited my parents down for a few days to visit the beautiful Manobier Castle which is our dream wedding venue. On our recent week in Tenby we stayed at our usual B&B (The Croyland it is fantastic) and this time we got to stay in the same room we stayed in on our very first trip which made the whole week feel a little more special and got me feeling very nostalgic.
I remember our first visit to Tenby it was our first holiday together, we were 18, we'd been together a year and Pete had only just passed his driving test so we decided to take the train (or trains as it turned out) it took 5 and a half hours to get there but we instantly felt at home and that's why we've returned every year since sometimes twice a year to our favourite place and our favourite B&B.
So here are a few photos from our recent trip and a few bonus (hilarious/embarassing) ones from our first trip.

NOTD: Pacific Beacon

I used:
Mavala- Pacific Blue
Essie- As Gold As It Gets
Topshop Nails- Beacon

I decided to create some beach inspired nails for my recent trip to the seaside, I went for a nice blue base colour with this very pretty Mavala polish in Pacific Blue. I then graduated glitter over the top with Essie As Gold As It Gets over most of the nail, which is a subtle translucent gold glitter, and two coats of Topshop Beacon on the tips to middle, Beacon looks like a plain gold glitter in the photos but it actually has a holographic effect which gives little shimmers of green and orange when the light hits it.

You Beauty Discovery Box- July 2014

This is my third You Beauty Discovery Box and honestly they have gotten better each month, this months shortlist was fantastic so here's what I got in my July box:

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
I have about 7 sachets of this floating around as I never find a reason to use them so I don't think I'll be using this.

Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum
I know a lot of people don't like getting perfume samples in beauty boxes but I honestly don't mind especially when they're little extras like this one, Fatale is exactly the kind of fragrance I would normally go for a sweet feminine scent with notes of vanilla and patchouli it's gorgeous.

Dove Men +Care Shave Cream
This is admittedly a little bit of a random edition for a beauty box but I'm sure Pete will make use of it when he bothers to shave.

L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara
This was my first choice from this months shortlist, I'm running out of my go to mascaras so I was going to pick up a new one soon anyway and my mom has used this before and couldn't stop singing it's praises so I have high hopes for this.

L'Occitane En Provence Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner Duo
I can't believe both of these counted as just one product choice on this months list it's no wonder they sold out so quickly, I was lucky enough to order my box before they sold out and can't wait to try them. My hair can get quite frizzy in the summer and these are supposed to protect and repair dry and damaged hair so hopefully they can tame my summer frizz. They also smell incredible with Ylang Ylang, sweet orange, lavender and geranium which smells so summery and refreshing.

So it's safe to say I was very impressed with You Beauty Discovery's July box and can't wait to see next months shortlist, you can sign up to You Beauty Discovery Box for £6.95 a month here.
