Fashion: Pretty Pansy

With the lovely weather that's been around this weekend, I decided to take advantage of this and take a couple of photo's out and about. Yellow's not a colour that I wear ever, but this pansy print dress certainly caught my eye. It's such a pretty summer dress and perfect for wearing to a special occasion or just out and about on a warm day. 
I've had a very chilled out weekend as I've got a busy couple of weeks ahead of me. It's my 21st Birthday next week, my Graduation the week after then time to head off to Walt Disney World for a couple of weeks. I'm so excited for everything coming up, It's going to be good! 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Stay tuned on my blog next week, There are some exciting posts coming your way!

Beauty: 5 Fragrance Favourites

Smelling nice is pretty important, right? I thought I'd compile a little list of my five current favourite fragrances. I'm a big fan of a fruity and floral scents and I'm not going to lie, I do get drawn in by pretty bottles. 
1. Escada, Pacific Paradise - This is quite an old perfume which isn't widely available as it used to be as I believe it's been discontinued. It's a brilliant scent for summer and I'm loving it at the moment so I decided to include it in this list anyway. It's a very sweet and fruity scent and last's brilliantly on the skin.
2. Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday - I bought this scent in a little giftset which came with a shower gel and a rollerball perfume, which is so handy to pop in my handbag. The bottle for this is pretty interesting but I like it! This is also quite a sweet scent with florals and fruity accents and a hint of vanilla.
3. Vera Wang, Lovestruck - I was sold the moment I saw Leighton Meester in that gorgeous Vera Wang gown advertising this perfume. The scent is a mix of pink guava and mandarin with lotus blossom and sheek musk. The bottle is very pretty with a floral top and it's all supposed to represent love and passion. 
4. DKNY, MYNY - I'm not sure I would've been interested in this perfume if I had seen it in a shop but I actually won this in a competition with Heathrow Airport. The more I used it, the more I loved it and I use this pretty much daily at the moment. This scent is a lot more muskier than what I would normally go for but there is hints of fruityness. The bottle is in the shape of a heart which is cute too!
5. Marc Jacobs, Lola - Last but certainly not least, Lola is my all-time favourite scent, this is my third or fourth bottle. I am a huge fan of the Marc Jacobs scents, they all smell incredible and I hope to pick up the Violet fragrance in Duty Free next month as it's only exclusive to them at the moment. Lola has the perfect mix of florals and fruity notes with graperuit and fuschia peony, rose and geranoium. This is definatly the one fragrance I would choose to use for the rest of my life!

What's your favourite fragrance at the moment?

Fashion: Summer Styling Converse

Stripes, Stripes Everywhere! My whole wardrobe is made up of striped garments and my latest addition is a Zara skirt which I picked up in the sale. It's perfect for summer and I actually took it to Barcelona with me last month. I have also been wearing it in England on an odd day it's been sunny but paired it with a pair of white Converse from Jones Bootmaker to make the look a little more casual. Converse are such a staple item in my wardrobe, they can be worn with everything and are super comfortable. This pair will definitely be in my suitcase to wear in Florida next month, my Mum has a matching pair so we will be Converse twins.
Skirt - Zara
Bag* - Boohoo (Similar)
