Spring Wishlist: River Island

River Island has to be my favourite shop this spring. They have so many gorgeous peices that really capture this season's trends - I may have to write a second post! Hut for now, here are some of my favourite picks from River Island...

Firstly, this black burnout floral print duster coat (£55) looks so easy to mix and match thanks to it being black and white. This time of year is perfect or peplum, frills and all the blouses, therefore this White soft peplum t -shirt (£16) is a lovely girly take on a basic white t-shirt - just throw on some skinny jeans like the Blue Amelie ripped super skinny jeans (£42) and your good to go. This White 'vivre' print fitted t-shirt (£16) is also different from a plain white t-shirt, and the slogan translates to 'The joy of living' which is so positive. Going back to blouses, this Black floral frill bib blouse (£26) - is perfect, I could really imagine it with black skinny jeans and black shoes or a darker take on spring. 

However, if you want to embrace the light, pastel colours this season, this Pink floral tie cuff blazer (£58) truly captures the colours and prints of spring. Also, how beautiful is this Cream floral print mini skirt (£30)? It could even be worn throughout summer because the floral print is quite bright. 

A couple more items in this wishlist include these gorgeous Beige stud block heel sandals (£45). These sandals are so cool and the colour is really versatile. Lastly, no wishlist from me would be complete without a bit of green (#redhead), so these Light green tapered trousers  are perfect for smart/casual days.

P.S: After I writing this I can literally picture Miranda Priestley in my head...

Beauty Wishlist

Seeing as it is officially Spring, I thought I would celebrate the new season with a new beauty wishlist. To go with the Spring theme, this wishlist is full of soft colours and more focus on lighter, more natural make up. I hope you enjoy!
The first thing you're drawn to is most likely the gorgeous foreshadow palette in the middle. This is one of the Smashbox Covershot eyeshadow palettes, in collaboration with the stunning Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars star). This palette is called 'Soft Light' and it contains lovely shimmery shades for easy, everyday looks with a hint of shimmer to make the eyes pop.

There are a couple more palettes in this wishlist. L'Oreal Paris have recently released a whole new collection of products for there Infallible range. The one I'm excited about the most is the Infallible Paint Blush Palette. This looks like such a good range of shades and it's rare to find blush palettes in the drugstore. Another palette I have my eye on this the Barry M Illuminating Highlighting Palette, it looks so pretty and the shades are perfect - Iced Pink, Frosty and Gilded Bronze. Cream . The drugstore has some gorgeous highlighter palettes - check out Sleek and Lottie London when you're next in Superdrug! But since I clearly can't get enough highlighter in my life, the Barry M looks like a great palette for a healthy, spring-inspired glow.

Moving onto single products, another new release from L'oreal is their Infallible Lip Paints. This pretty nude pink, in Hollywood Beige is the perfect matte pink for Spring. One other launch I'm very excited about is the new Benefit blusher- Galifornia. This described as a 'sunny warm pink blusher' which sounds amazing for Spring and Summer, and the packaging is amazing as well.

Lastly, we have a drugstore fragrance. I used to use the 'So...' body sprays all the time when I was younger. However, I was instantly drawn to their new fragrances because they look so sophisticated The one in this wishlist is 'Sheer Illusion' - with notes of mandarin & bergamot, rose and jasmine, and a creamy sandalwood base. It just sounds so nice and floral for Spring.

What have you got your eye on at the moment? Is there anything inspired by Spring?

There is no better time than the weekend to enjoy your favourite films. Here is a list of my top 5 feel good films (or film series!). A lot of these may be very predictable but I love them anyway.

Beauty and The Beast

This is my favourite Disney classic. With catchy music, a lovely story line and iconic characters, it never fails to put me in a good mood! I can't wait to see the live adaptation this month, it looks beautiful!

This has got to be one of my all-time favourites. I've seen it so many times but I love it every time. It's so funny.

High School Musical

I grew up with this film series. It may be cheesy but that's what makes it so good! Also, I pretty much know the songs off by heart.

Bridget Jones

These films are the best. They are hilarious and Bridget Jones is such a relatable character. I think the most recent film, Bridget Jones Baby, is my favourite out of the three.

The Devil Wears Prada

I've loved this film for years. It features some of my favourite things - New York and fashion. and it's a brilliant story about following your dreams. I love the cast (Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt...) as well.

Three Things

Here are three things that I've been enjoying lately!


Recently I've been practising mindfulness, and part of this involves mediation. I use the Calm app to mediate, it just takes ten minutes out of my day to sit, breathe and listen. It's really helped me focus, clear my mind and feel more calm in all aspects of my life. It's especially helpful as we approach exam season!

Embracing Spring

One of my goals for 2017 was to embrace all the seasons, and I'm definitely enjoying the start of Spring. Starting to see the blossom on the trees, daffodils growing and being able to dress for slightly warmer weather is so uplifting and it's so nice to focus on the present season. However, my excitement for summer is already starting to kick in - a holiday with the girls is already on the cards!

Being happy for others

Through practising mindfulness and self-love, I find it so much easier to connect and have a happy relationship with others. Being happy for people, their achievements and their passions is such warming and exciting feeling. Whether its a compliment, an act of kindness, or even just sitting with them and listening to what they have to say - the simplest things can mean so much.
