I reached 60 followers a couple of days ago, so as promised, here’s a little giveaway! There’s not much as I’m a bit strapped for cash at the moment but I tried to pick things that I know my lovely followers would like!
So here are the prizes:

  • Avon Sassy Swirls Vanilla Bean Eau De Toilette Spray (worth £5) – this purse spray has a great fresh vanilla fragrance which lasts for hours and is great for those days when you want to wear a perfume which isn’t overpowering and it will fit in your handbag!
  • Bake me, I’m yours.. cupcake book – this book is perfect for anyone who loves baking and has some great ideas for cupcakes for any occasion
  • No 7 Stay Perfect in Totally Teal and Barry M Instant Nail Effects crackle polish (worth £7 and £3.99) – I love both of these nail polishes and I know the Barry M one is a bit hard to find at the moment so I snapped it up in my local Boots especially for my giveaway. You can see me wearing Totally Teal here.
  • Avon skincare samples and lipstick samples – as an Avon Representative I have the opportunity to buy samples to give to my customers. I love the little lipstick samples, I always pop one in my clutch bag for a night out and it means I can choose from lots of different colours without shelling out for the actual lipstick. I thought I’d include a few of my favourite ones with this giveaway!

Sorry the photos are a bit rubbish.. they were taken at 2am after I got back and the lighting in my room is terrible! Anyway, this is what I wore to my friend’s confirmation on Tuesday. I wore it to the church service and then we headed into town and spent the rest of the evening in ‘Spoons! My were a bit sore after walking about 3 miles in heels but I just love these shoes! They’re real leather and I picked them up in the sale in Asda for about £9 a couple of years ago!
I finally got to 60 followers which means time for my giveaway! I’ve got a couple of bits for it already but still have to buy some more, so keep an eye out for it! Big thanks to all my followers so far and for all the comments!

I was browsing the Topshop website the other night, looking for some ideas for spring seeing as it’s supposedly just around the corner.. These three dresses caught my eye. I love the pastel colours of all three of them. The cut of the first dress would suit me as I’m quite petite. I love the belt on the second dress (unfortunately it’s not on the site any more so I can’t link to it) and I love the way it cinches in the waist and it’s bang on trend with the peter pan collar. This dress came in this lovely baby blue colour and also a dusty pink. The third dress is more summery I think but would look great with a cream cardigan. I wish I could afford to buy all three dresses, I could see myself wearing them a lot!
I created a set on Polyvore using the second dress in the pink colour. This is what I came up with:
