Nail Art' tag till I found something that was so easy even a four year old could do it. Polka dots!!!!! Simple, yet ridiculously cute. Time consuming, yes but worth it to get something different on ma nailzz for a change. I used a white natural collection nail polish which unfortunately barely lasted the day so if any of you can recommend a good white polish please comment below. To create the polka dot's I just used the end of a bobby pin. I might invest in a dotting tool but for now, the bobby pin really works. I used my Essie nail polishes 'Mint Candy Apple', 'Cute as a Button' and 'Bikini So Teeny' and I think the worked pretty well together. It's such a playful look for summer don't you think? If you do nail art on your blog please link me on twitter would love a look.

Bio oil will never not be part of my night time essential items. I apply this every night without fail. I've had incredibly sucky skin for years now and thankfully it's really starting to clear up thanks to a number of changes I've made. 2litres of water a day, major fruit overdoses etc etc. But unfortunately my lower chin area has been left with not so nice scarring from the spots and in attempt to be somewhat rid of them I apply Bio Oil to help reduce the overall redness and it really works wonders. I have a review on it here. I make sure to exfoliate my lips every night using the Lush 'Bubblegum' lip scrub. Review here. I love this little tub and the scrub tastes delicious. Sorry not sorry. You can't help but try it, you're all lying to yourselves if you disagree with me. When I was in town last week I repurchased the Nivea lip balm, my friend (you know who you are)also bought it, so it's a winnter. It's one of those items you all need. I'm constantly applying it. Especially after exfoliating to help rehydrate and lock in any moisture. Lastly I have some Soap and Glory products. I'm a S&G junkie if you all haven't realised yet. 'Heel Genius' is new to my regime, I can't tell if I like it yet. Primarily down to the smell. It just isn't like the other S&G products which is disappointing. Its more medicinal? I dunno, just not what I was expecting. I'll have a review on this at some stage but at the moment I'm still trying to figure out if it's having any affect on my feet.....ew. I'm nearly all out of 'Girligo' which is sad cause it's one of those really effortless products. I mean you just spray it all over and you're done, just let it soak in. I'm very keen for my skin to be 'summer ready' so i'm trying hard to keep it hydrated by drinking water and using body butters and all that. If only we get to weather for it..

(Images via Pinterest)I thought in celebration of the trailer for 'City of Bones' being released last week I'd share with you guys my 'style crush' Lily Collins. I'm so excited for this movie, the books are really good and I'm so happy that Lily is playing Clary. I've been a fan of Lily for years now and it's been interesting to see how her style has evolved since she first jumped on my radar. It's worlds away from what it used to be five, six years ago and her overall appearance has matured too. The blond highlights, the cali tan have all been traded in for chic dark hair and pale parisian skin, the eyebrows, thankfully, have stayed. Whether she's on the red carpet in this gorgeous monochrome bow dress from 'Paule Ka' or off it in these Diesel boots Lily is always on point and I'm always taking notice. What makes me fawn over her style is, it's so effortless. Skinny jeans, shirts, ankle boots and basic jumpers, theres nothing there that we all can't emulate ourselves or have in our own wardrobes. Even her make up is pretty basic with nothing more dramatic than a simple red or plum lip. I like Lily's style a lot and when I look at it I see hints of my own. I have a lot of similar pieces to her between black skinny jeans, basic tees and khaki jackets. My primark waistcoat can trump her Philip Lim one any day. Most of her 'risks' are on the red carpet which means her street style stays sane enough for me to take notes from. Top knots and ankle boots, what more do you need? Who's your style crush?
