Give Me A Name!

A very different post today guys – some exciting news!
Uhm, now to just pass my test, oops.
Oh isn’t she a beauty?
I’m a bit of a petrol head, and it just had to be a VW. The fact it’s yellow is just fate.

Only thing is, I just can’t pick a name!?
So I was thinking maybe you guys can help!

Leave any name suggestions in the comments and I’ll be sure to let you know what I settle on.

PS;  Yellow Car No Returns!

Outfit | T-shirt Barré

|| Top: Primark | Shorts: Levi @ Urban Outfitters | Shoes: JuJu @ Bank Fashion | Rucksack: Paperchase ||

I love my Levi's, I really do! But they just do not see the light of day enough.
Give me almost any dress, and I can parade around all day in it feeling pretty decent. But put me in a pair of shorts & I feel all self-conscious for the whole day.
Strange ey?

This outfit has a bit of a French Vibe no?
Maybe it's just anything striped that gives me that feeling!

I'm absolutely loving this rucksack,
I've had a few over the last year, but this is the only one to experience more than one outing!
It's just so practical, and the print is just gorgeous.
It's from Paperchase, so a bit of a different shop to the usual!

Are you loving ruck sacks this summer?

Product Review | Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo*

|| Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo | £11.85 | Purchase Here ||

I think many of us can agree that one of girls current biggest beauty secrets is Dry Shampoo.
& I've tried all sorts, but each time I usually resort back to classic Batiste.

I really love Batiste as much as the next blogger; but do you know those super-glam-but-last-minute-after-a-nine-hour-shift nights out, its understandable to grab for something with a little more "oomph" than batiste.
Or that super bad hair day when you're needing that brilliant hair day the most?

Que Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo!
A dry shampoo that claims to preserve your hair style, create shinier, more manageable hair and of course, absorb access oil!
& boy is does!
It leaves me hair looking beautiful, it makes for the perfect quick hair fix!
It's also not super white and much easier to rub in than its competitors.
My hair just looks much shinier, manageable and it lasts all day.

Oh and how cute is that pink tin? It wins in my book!

I do think this product beats all of it's competitors, and I would most definitely repurchase it when it runs out to.

Oh, and there's currently 25% off Redken products! Get their quick!

A Day Out | Stourport-On-Seven

Near Bewdley, Stourport is a little town on the river Severn. Decorated with gorgeous little shops, a large children's park and stunning river views, it's the perfect day out.
It's one of my favourite places in the Midlands.
We went there the day before my birthday to spend the day, and it was wonderful!
I really adored every second.
I love days out & this was no exception!

The rain held off to! Woo

Have you ever visited Stourport or somewhere similar?

Product Review | Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen*

Eyeliner | £11 | Purchase Here |

Now, I'm a self-confessed eye-liner snob.
I wear eye-liner every single day, and it has to last.. I can't be dealing with panda eyes half way through the day!

If i'm honest, I'm normally a little against eye-liners that are anything but black, 
But when I recently received this little beauty, all opinions changed.

I've been wearing a lot of bronze eye-shadows this summer, and this eyeliner is perfect for a more subtle, shimmery way to define my eyes.
A great change from my heavy black eyeliner to!

Oh, and there is no denying how beautiful the packaging is!

So if the packaging, and beautiful bronze shade hasn't hooked you already, how about the absolutely incredibly stay power.
Seriously, I was rubbing the swatch on my arm and it just wouldn't budge....brilliant!
It came off wonderfully with my micellar water, but for general way of the day, this baby is going nowhere!

The texture is incredibly soft and creamy, it glides along my eyelid wonderfully and doesn't scratch at all.
By only recommendation would be to keep the pencil sharp as this soft texture can sometimes mean thick application and lines!

I've already purchased a few other items from the Pixi range because I honestly fell in love with this eyeliner so much!

Don't you find sometimes the brands you're new to can turn out to be the best?
Have you tried Pixi before? What do you think?

Outfit | Turning 21

|| Top: New Look | Necklace: Gift Shop | Skirt: New Look ||

My Birthday was on July 14th, so I'm a bit late with these posts!
But still, I thought I'd share with you a few outfits I wore over my birthday weekend.

I love maxi skirts, they're so easy to wear and yet so super pretty!
Perfect for summer.
I thought the colour in this one was just stunning to!
I sort of felt like a mermaid! Haaaaa..

Do you always have birthday outfits planned?

A Trip Out | Zoo

I've been on quite a few lovely days out as of late, so I thought I'd share with you and see if you know the places I've been & things I'm seeing!

I went with my super good friend Fiona to Twycross Zoo as part of my Birthday weekend.
I LOVE the zoo, and you are definitely never to old.

Twycross is predominantly monkey based, but they had the cutest little baby elephant & some adorable meerkats! 
Yes that meerkat is real and not a statue! :)
The weather was gorgeous & there truly is something there for everyone!

Have you recently been to the Zoo, and have you ever been to Twycross?
