I Heart Revolution Bronzer

My daughter bought me a bronzer/blusher that I am obsessed with for my birthday from a brand called I Heart Revolution. Its called Summer of Love and it’s a triple baked bronzer (£4.99). I sadly dropped it so it broke but that hasn’t stopped me from loving this!

As you can see it is a lovely mix of bronze tones, shot with coral and best of all gold! For my skin tone it is the perfect summer glowy bronzing blusher! I cannot tell you how much I love this – is very heavily pigmented and really does give my skin a beautiful glow. I have also used this on my eyes, on my lips, on the bridge of my nose, décolletage..everywhere! They do a range of blushers and bronzers which I would recommend checking out – such good value for money and great quality!

The Statement Dress

Every year I look for that one statement dress that will remain in my wardrobe for years and will always be a great investment. This year I found one in Zara.

I immediately fell in love with this dress, the design, the shape everything is perfect! It was £69.99 but I genuinely think that its worth it for a dress I know I will own for many years.

It is an unusual shape but is so flattering. I just think its a stand out piece!

Anna Glover for H&M

I have absolutely fallen in love with the Anna Glover for H&M collection. I have always loved floral designs and this collection is right up my street! Anna Glover is an award winning designer known for her prints. This collection is really beautiful with some standout pieces.

My first purchase was this beautiful floaty blouse (£24.99) with a pansy print. I love the shape and colours. Its such a pretty piece for the summer!

I then saw these beautiful trousers (see this post on printed trousers from H&M £19.99). I love the print so much and they are a really flattering shape.

My last purchase from this collection is this gorgeous T-shirt (£12.99) with an embellished shoulder. I love a classic white t-shirt but this is even better. The embroidery is so pretty and just makes a statement piece out of a simple tee!

Palm/Leaf Print Obsession

My palm print obsession continues…my hallway is of course a shrine to it (see here) and it is now spreading to the living room and garden!

Palm or leaf print cushions are my thing. I have had two Monstera print cushions from H&M Home for years (first picture) and now I have added these cute smaller ones with a lovely tropical bird (second picture, also from H&M Home and £6.99 each)! I think they are so pretty and work really well in my living room with all the greenery.

I also wanted a couple of cushions for my outdoor sofa. I couldn’t find actual outdoor cushions that I loved so I got these from Ikea £13 each, that I bring in every evening. I absolutely love the shape and size and of course the print. It really elevates the outdoor space!

 

The Perfect Printed Summer Trousers

I love anything with a bold print and these trousers from H&M (£19.99)are so perfect. They are a great combination of smart but funky!

First is this pretty pastel floral pair which works so well for the summer. I wear them with flats or heels depending on what vibe I am going for!

Next are these stunning palm print pair that is part of the Anna Glover collection.

 

The Summer Wrap

I know I have been absent for a really long time, but I am back and just in time for the summer!

I love summer fashion and this year its all about the wrap dress. I find that for my body shape (large bust medium hips/waist) they are so flattering and easy to wear. I do tend to wear a body under mine to keep any cleavage disasters at bay!

I have bought three wrap dresses all from Primark for £10 each. Such a bargain and they are so pretty.

First up is a classic blue with white spots – so cute and timeless.

Next is this beautiful green floral number.

Finally I love this darker floral print.

My Daughters Room

My daughters room has taken a while and its still not quite right! Storage is definitely an issue but I am giving up on it looking clutter free as she loves it! She is now 11 and we wanted a room that she could grow with and love for a good few years.

So before we decorated it was a very tired looking room, with a desk and a futon on the floor.

Below is the after picture, with lemur wallpaper and all her toys! The wallpaper felt right as a continuation of the theme in the rest of the house!

Its a lovely bright room, thats full of colour and fun. The bed is an old Ikea bed that we spray painted copper and strung some lovely fairy lights on. The curtains and the bean bag were custom made by a lovely local tailor. The blue rug is from Homesense and the Persian rug is a family piece.

As you can see she has lots of stuff and we have a mish mash of storage solutions mostly from Ikea and eventually we might change things around but for now it works for her.

My daughter loves her room, she has loads of space to play, relax and have friend over too!
