Sorry about the misserable face in most of these, it was a pretty hot day. I can't deal with heat. (soz)
Anyways I've tried being a bit more adventurous with this hot weather and experimenting a bit with different outfits, I did kind of fall into the habit of 'Smock dresses all day every day' which is still great, but it wasn't that inspiring.
Wearing a white top was so odd for me, I didn't feel like myself and was tempted to wear something else, but I stuck it out, and this is now probably one of my favourite summer outfits. I've also tried getting used to going bare leg, which I used to hate but when it's this hot, it's either sizzle or ditch the tights, and I'm actually feeling good about it, I'm slowly making these little changes to embrace this weather a little bit.
I'm still counting down the days to Autumn so I can get my layering back on though, you can't take the sweater out of the girl. Never ever.

Skirt - Primark (old)
Shoes - Primark
Bag - Accessorize
Rings - left to right, White stone ring Accessorize, Midi ring Ebay, Twisted midi ring & Turquoise stone ring & flower ring Accessorize, Midi ring Ebay

I know, a lot of this stuff is from Accessorise, but I work there, and that means I have to look at this stuff all day. So there's always loads of stuff that I want. Honestly when I first got this Dress I was really surprised that I like it, if you've read my blog for a while you'll notice that I don't wear much colour, but this just really interested me, I love the navy background on it. And to be honest, you've all seen my navy lacey skirt, so I don't really need to say anything about it, it's just the best skirt ever.
Oh and these shoes are super adorable and soo comfy, I'm just gonna buy loads when I go to Primark again.
Merci

We've got obsessions // Ash Blonde Ombre

 I have never shown an interest in Ash blonde until earlier this week, and now i'm well and truly fascinated.
I'm so intrigued that I actually went out and bought an Ash blonde hair dye for my ombre ends, but it didn't really make a difference... For obvious reasons, my ombre needs to be lightened a lot more before they can process ash blonde ends. But I definitely want to give it a go, I think it'll be quite nice to lighten my ends for summer.
1 bummer that came out of this whole experience was when I said to my boyfriend "I'm gonna go over my ombre with Ash blonde" and he replies, "you still have your ombre?" *heart breaks*

All That Matters.

Half up, half down pony all day for me.
I had these taken like over a week ago, and I've been so lazy with uploading them, I think it's cause of the lighting not being so great.. But yeah I kicked myself up the butt.
Literally I love this Ditsy print skirt from H&M, it's the perfect amount of cute, but also not so girly because of it being a small print, and having the black background. I got the top in a random shop in Weston S-Mare, (which I wrote a post about on here) and it's just so easy to wear, it's a loose fit and just goes with anything really.
I just wish I had more tops to wear with this pretty skirt, and I'm gonna make that my goal for when I get paid, try to avoid pretty dresses and get some tops! (Please keep your fingers crossed for me.)

Miss Manga, Waterproof.

Left eye - no mascara, Right eye - Miss Manga

I was going in and out of my local Boots when I found out L'oreal had released a Waterproof version of the popular Miss Manga. The excitement I felt when they finally had the gap for it, was kind of intense. There wasn't any out, so I politely asked the assistant if she could check the draw for any, and I was literally telling her how this was the best day of my life, and she was probably thinking 'take the god damn mascara.'

Anyway, life story aside, this mascara is pretty good, nothing quite life changing for myself though really, which was a let down, because people hyped it a lot. I think maybe it was hyped up a bit too much, if there wasn't this huge expectation, maybe I would have been more impressed, but it's still an amazing mascara.

Pro's
- Waterproof, no leakage for me thanks.
- Weird flexi brush,(strange to get used to) very useful though, can move around the eye easier.
- Amazing shaped brush, with it getting thinner near the bottom, so it can get those pesky little hairs.
- Easy to layer up, making spider leg lashes a dream.
- No flakes left hanging around my eyes!
- Formula isn't dry! (I hate dry formulas)

Con's
- The price.
- Hyped up too much!

So to make sense of this all, I would purchase again, when I wanted to treat myself, or just thinking 'the heck with it!' but from what I can tell, it doesn't make a huge difference between my Maybelline the Rocket, which is my holy grail mascara, and that one is cheaper!
Merci

South West Bloggers Meet Up


Me and Natasha got talking the other night on Twitter, and thought it would be nice to try and organize a South West #bbloggers, #lbloggers & #fbloggers meet up, just because we've never been to one before, and also it would be super cool to finally meet each other!

We weren't planning anything formal, just to meet up, and go shopping and hang out in a cafe, or have a picnic. (if the suns out!) This post is basically just a pitch, as we just want to see if anyone would be interested in the idea.

We don't really know where we would like to do it, we both have polls on the side of our blogs for you to decide, and we'll chose the one with the most votes I guess!

If there's somewhere that's not on the poll that you'd like to suggest, leave it in the comments!
You can read her post here, or tweet us on @Sparrow_mint & @Bellesplash

Rice Rain.

Bag - Charity shop
Boots - Newlook (like always.)
Sunglasses - Accessorize

I literally picked this up on Monday, because I was feeling a little self concious in what I was wearing before hand.. It's not really a good enough reason, but you probably know how awful you can feel when your not so sure on your outfit choice. I saw it on thet and was scooping out the shop to see if I could find it on the hanger, and I did! (obviously) My boyfriend was kind enough to treat me to it (probably cause he was fed up of me moaning about my other outfit)
It's probably the most colourful thing I have atm, but It's not crazy colourful, it's very dark kind of bright colours, does that make sense? (probably not) So the yellow isn't a bright yellow, it's more of a greeny muted yellow. I'm quite impressed that I got something so bold, and I'm looking forward to styling it up when it gets a little warmer. Not too warm though, please.
Merci
