Sleek Blush By 3 : Californ.I.A

This is, hands down, my all time favourite blusher palette. I have only had it for a few weeks, but I'm already totally in love with it. Californ.I.A is inspired by the sun, sand and surf of Californian beach life.
The intensely pigmented cream blushers are the perfect shades of peachy/coral for Spring and Summer. The cream consistency is so lovely to apply and blend, and leaves a beautiful and natural glow to the complexion.
 The shades are:                       Newport Peach       |       The Surf       |       OC                   
 So being a massive fan of The OC, I instantly fell for the names of the blushers. I can definitely see a similarity between these pretty shades and the makeup of Marissa Cooper. Infact, I might even try to recreate Marissa's natural and pretty makeup look using this palette.
Sleek Blush By 3 Palettes are amazing value, only £9.99 from Superdrug. I find myself buying one each new season, falling in love with it, and pretty much not wearing anything else.

Laura Ashley Spring/Summer ✿

Nothing excites me more than finding that the postman has delivered an extra special treat... The Laura Ashley catalogue.
So when I found this treasure on my doormat this morning, I instantly went to work planning which lovely Spring items I'd be purchasing.
I fell in love with the delightful pastel colours and beautiful bouquets of flowers, so I popped over to the website, where I found myself putting together a Spring Wish list. The Laura Ashley Spring/Summer collection is filled with pretty florals dresses and sweet little cardigans, perfect for an English Summer in the countryside.

These are my favourite items from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection:

✿ Hello Spring! ✿

Spring is here - YAY!
Last Sunday, for Mother's Day, my family & I had a wonderful day out in the countryside and a delicious lunch at Willington Hall. It was such a beautiful afternoon and it truly felt like the very first day of Spring.
