Olivia Burton Big Dial Mink and Rose Gold Watch | Review

I haven't been a watch person in ages, but I think I've finally been converted.

My parents bought me this gorgeous Olivia Burton Big Dial Mink and Rose Gold watch for Christmas and I still love to wear it now... Definitely a record for me! It took me a while to decide what kind of Olivia Burton watch I wanted, but after giving them a few choices, I'm glad they chose this one.

It's classic, it's understated, it's smart. I absolutely love it's vintage style. It looks good on my tiny wrist. The leather strap colour is a lovely mink shade, meaning it will go with pretty anything I wear. I'm also a sucker for rose gold (the photos doesn't do the rose gold dial justice).

It's my statement watch and it's perfect.

Nailbox May 2015 | Review

Nailbox is a new monthly subscription beauty box, full of lovely nail colours and essential tools. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a beauty box subscription, and I was quite excited to find out how nailbox differentiates itself from the rest.

Dedicated to all things nails, it's perfect for those of you who love to experiment with new shades, or perhaps you can never decide what nail colour to choose or buy.

May's nailbox included full size essie, OPI, Rimmel and Orly nail polishes, plus an Elegant Touch cuticle pusher and nail cleaner. I had slightly mixed feelings when I first opened the box (probably because, hey, I've been using Rimmel ever since I was a teen) but I've completely changed my mind and I'm actually so pleased with it.

It's got a great collection of new summer shades, and I'm struggling to choose a favourite. The Elegant Touch nail tool is also perfect as my current one is only plastic so it will be a good replacement.

If you order a nailbox each month, it costs £15 each, but you can prepay for 3/6/12 months to make it a bit cheaper. Not a bad price considering the brands!

Now I just need to continue growing my nails so I can use them on more than just my toenails...

Stripes and Shorts | What I Wore

Whilst the weather decides if it wants to be summer or not, I can't resist wearing a light tee, shorts and some tights (because, hey, it's not THAT warm yet). I've always struggled to find a pair of shorts, long enough so I'm containing my dignity and I'm able to wear without tights.

However, Topshop (of all places!) has brought out these delightful mom shorts which are the perfect length for me. I can't wait until it's get warmer so I can get my legs out properly, and they'll be great for my holiday too.

I'm also starting to get quite into stripes at the moment, and I think this tee is really cute. I'm quite shocked that it cost nearly the same amount as the shorts though!
