Twinkle Toes


I have always been a shoe girl. Even at nearly 6ft tall i probably have equally the same amount of heels as i do flats.

Now i have never been a big fan of a toe exposure.   I do have a couple of pair of sandals that i get out in the Summer now and then mainly when the thought of wearing my ankle boots just make me want to melt a bit.

Last year i invested in a pair of the Chanel espadrilles and don't get me wrong i absolutely love them. Obsessed some might add! But like all high end shoes i just can't justify spending that amount of money on a pair of 'chuck ons' to go to Tesco or to do the late night taxi service for family members. I like to keep them for my causal- best like a dry day out etc ;

So i was looking for another pair of casual shoes to have as an option against my Chanels. I was looking all over the internet for something slightly different as i didn't want flatforms or chunky lego sandals and thats when i found these babies from Kurt Geiger. How gorgeous are they!!

I am in love with the strap on them as they remind me of the Valentino espadrilles and the gems on the front are just so GLAM and lets not forget the colour of them ...NUDE!

Has anyone else found some cute summer casual shoes that say no to the toes?

Tyson and Tilly

Both me and Tom have always been brought up with dogs. I remember every dog that has been in my life even from when i was in a pram.

We bought our very first property together back in March this year and it wasn't long after that that we realised that the lack of wagging tails and floppy ears were leaving our place feel very ...empty. 

We researched different breeds for weeks and weeks.  With both of us coming from homes with terriers we knew we didn't want anything that 1. shed hair and 2. was a little snappy.

We both found the breed 'Miniature Pinscher' and did our research into the breed, you know the normal questions.. good with kids, cleanliness, temperament etc; 

This little breed we had never heard of ticked all the boxes. 

So we agreed on the breed and began the very long and hard search to find a breeder. 

Apparently Min Pin breeders are very rare lol! We only found two in the UK!

Luckily it turns out that one of the breeders was only about 15 minutes away! RESULT! 

A week later and there we were, on our way home from the breeders... smiling from ear to ear. We have two children!!

We named them Tyson and Tilly as they are brother and sister. 

They are now going into their 5th month on this planet we call earth and their personalities are just amazing. Tilly is the cheeky one who is always getting under the sofa, in the water bowl etc; and Tyson is just as cheeky but a complete gentlemen. He loves his naps and can't keep his eyes open past 9:30pm.

They look out for each other when on walks, they play together, they sleep together, clean each other and give the best snuggles you could ever want. 

If our future children are anything like our dogs we will be very happy parents !!!!

If you are looking for a smaller breed that isn't necessarily a handbag dog...stereotypical I'm sorry. I would really recommend this breed! We get stopped on every walk and people just compliment how gorgeous they are and they are just so loveable!

I will be doing a video on them soon but for now you can check the out in my previous post here which included our dog walk blog.

Its so exciting coming home knowing that you have two little wagging tails waiting for you, to us that is priceless and we can finally call our place ....home.

My July Wishlist - My Valentino gypsy

My July Wishlist - My Valentino gypsy

My wish list is always a M25 length long.

This month my wish list seems to show a trend. I am loving the high-end-glam bohemian look this month. Theres something about showing a little bit of skin that isn't the traditional areas that gives of that summer "promiscuous girl" vibe.

To be honest, my wish list will always have a bag thrown in there. I am a bag girl hands down. I love my makeup and my shoes but I definitely am a bag girl. With all the controversy about female body image i feel like everyone looks the same with bags. Bags can't make any look bigger or smaller , taller or smaller and for someone who suffers majorly from body image problems, i just feel so equal to everyone in this department of fashion and style. words the pictures are enough!

As for the mirrored console, i love this one as it is very Paris Chic, I love the gold and silver mix. I'm on the hunt for a affordable version.

The links for everything are below.

In the style of ... Rosie Connelly

ABH Brow Pomade and M.A.C Swish Chocolate eyeshadow

Anastasia Beverley Hills Contour Palette

M.A.C Honey-love holy grail lippy 

Every week I come across new bloggers which i love! When i really enjoy someones social media content i do continue to 'stalk' them over every social media platform they are part of. I seem to really enjoy blogs I can relate to and I am always looking for new reads to obtain inspiration and knowledge on other peoples experiences.

Okay so some blogs I read you would not really expect me to relate to I.E;  'a mum-to-be blogger'. Although I happen not to be a mum or pregnant in that fact,  if i enjoy the read and think what a fabulous person this is and their pictures and content is great, I do kind of aspire to that person and keep them in my top 5 searches on social media.

One person that has been in my top 5 'stalker searches', shall we say, is Rosie Connelly from the blog Hearts Heels and Handbags. Rosie also has a snapchat where you can find her vlogging her day usually with her absolutely adorable little boy!! If you don't follow Rosie, I suggest you hop-to- it as her content is great and she is gorgeous.

The purpose of this post was about Rosie's everyday makeup. Now i know she gets a lot of questions about her makeup routine and i am guilty of being one of those people to ask, so i thought i would have a go at re-creating her look.

The everyday look is very simple but glam. I have the same colour eyes and i find that Rosie's eye makeup just bring out the blue in her eyes so beautifully.

I know Rosie uses Urban Decay - Riff eyeshadow and Mac concealer to highlight but as i need to shop my stash on my concealer and Riff is currently on order, i simply couldn't wait any longer to attempt this look. 

I have pictured above what products I used to re-create this look:

I will be doing a "In the style of"every week so if you have any suggestions please leave a comment below...
