My Baby Turns 3 ♥

Hard to believe that on this day three years ago, I started up my amazing little blog. Thinking back, I couldn’t imagine my life without it. I love sharing my thoughts with all of you (even though they’re mainly style and beauty related!) I’ve met so many beautiful people along the way and I’m extremely grateful for that. ♥

I’ve had some amazing opportunities throughout the three years. I’ve been given the chance to work with amazing brands throughout the fashion and beauty industries, and I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Katie Price, Louise Redknapp and Lindsey Kelk. I feel very blessed and I hope that this brilliant adventure continues. Through a lot of hard work, determination and motivation, I feel confident that my time as a blogger will continue for a very long time.

Even though it’s my blogs birthday, it would not be what it is today without all of you – my lovely followers and readers! I am extremely grateful to all of you for standing by me throughout everything. It has been a crazy and sometimes difficult three years, but, you have all made it completely worthwhile! I just want to say a very special thank you for all of your love and support over the years. It means the world to me. ♥

I hope you all had a great weekend. Today is my first official day off for my summer holidays. Did I mention that I’m off for six weeks?! Woohoooooo! Have a fabulous day!

My Love Affair With Scarves

No one loves a bargain more than me. The variety of patterns, colours and even textures is the best way to experiment and add a little edge to your look. From huge over-sized scarves to short ‘n’ sweet ones, the options are endless.

When it comes to wearing scarves I tend to opt for the ‘cowl’ style. Each layer flows beautifully over each other and the colours pop nicely against the cream base colour. I am actually obsessed with scarves. I think every girl can get such pleasure from wearing them. They can add instant glamour to any look.

I thought that I would show you a few of my other favourites. I’m not lucky enough to own an Alexander Mc Queen skull print scarf so this pretty one from New Look  (second from left) is as close as I’ll get in the mean time. I love the dark and edgy colours throughout it. It’s perfect for when I’m channeling the biker look.

For Christmas, my mum bought me these amazing Marilyn Monroe scarves. They are stunning, I love the colours in each one, they allow her face to pop perfectly and stand out. They a nice change from just patterned designs.

I am a firm believer in injecting some colour into my collection from season to season. I’ll forever include a pop of colour somewhere in my look. This huge scarf from Warehouse is exactly what I’m talking about.

Again, pretty florals are huge this season and I’ve had this scarf for a long time now and it never fails to make a statement. Season after season I mix it in with my look and most recently I wore it to Belfast Fashion Week with my tan jumpsuit and cream blazer.

Hope you all like it. Have a great day!

Starting with this purrrrty M&S, Limited Collection make up palette, it is the perfect size to fit in your bag to bring with you on a night out. I have one myself and recently reviewed it here. I loved it and the colours are perfect if you going au natural or with a seductive smokey eye. Couldn’t help but get another one for this competition.
