Brighton Trip

Hello my lovelies,

So, as you can see I've had a little break from blogging, over two weeks in fact. There's no one particular reason, just lots of little reasons and things that took up all my time. But now, I'm back and I can't wait to jump back in and write lots of posts!

Two weeks ago myself and a couple of friends took a little trip down to Brighton to visit one of our friends who lives there now. We had a fantastic weekend watching the Pride parade and festival, wandering around the shops, drinking cocktails at the marina and visiting the beach.

Be warned; this will be a very photo heavy post!

Cute iPad Accessories from ASOS

Unfortunately I'm a clumsy person. Countless glasses, teacups and pocket mirrors have met their end at my hands, so a case and a cover is a necessity to keep my iPad in one piece.

I usually take my iPad to university with me to make notes on, so it spend a lot of time in my bag. To keep it clean and safe I chose this leather case which zips up. This case also has little elastic straps in each corner which hold the iPad securely in place and prevent it from falling out when the case is opened. The lining of the case is soft, so the screen won't be scratched. I chose a black leather case because I seem to always end up with a lidless pen or a bottle of water which leaks in my bag, but this case is waterproof and easy to clean.

 ASOS Leather iPad Case With Lizard Panel - £10.00, reduced from £30.

ASOS iPad Case In Exclusive Indie Tile Print - £3.50 (reduced from £15)

I love the crazy patterns and different colour of this case! The back of iPads are sooo easy to scratch so I keep a hard clip-on case on permanently to protect and also to make it look a little bit more interesting. I was pleased to find this for £3.50 because even though I really like the design, I do not think it is worth the original £15 price tag as there are so many cool cases available on the likes of Amazon, eBay and Etsy for much less.

July Birchbox - Sun, Sea and Sand

This year I have well and truly become a beauty box addict, trying out several different subscriptions each month. So far, I think I have been most impressed by the Birchbox product choices, and this month looks to carry on their winning streak....

Review: Ciate Denim Manicure Kit

I have been loving the Ciate manicure kits, they are always fun to use and create some interesting looks. The latest one I've tried is the denim manicure kit which is based on denim jeans and includes cute little details such as stitching and studs.

NOTD: Simple Squares

Hi lovelies,

Here's my latest nail art. For once I've resisted the urge to cover every nail in glitter and kept it simple with just 3 colours and clean lines.

My Birthday!

I turned 20 last Saturday and had a wonderful weekend spending time with my family and friends.
I know 20 isn't a milestone birthday like 18 or 21, but I did feel a bit sad to be swapping my carefree teenage years for a decade where I'll probably have to start thinking about scary things like a career and mortgage. :o
