London Retro Sunglasses from Glasses Direct

Hello lovelies,

I was recently sent a pair of London Retro Glasses from Glasses Direct. Glasses Direct are a online prescription glasses retailer that offers an extensive selection for both men and women. They offer a 7 day Free Home Trial of four pairs of glasses, for you to try and decide on at your leisure and currently have a new boutique collection full of designer glasses. 

On to the glasses I chose; I went for the London Retro Elwood Glasses in dark tortoise with a dark tint making them sunglasses which retail for £125, I chose these as I loved the tortoise frame and the shape reminded me of Ray Ban Wayfarers, which I own and know that they suit my face. Shipping was extremely quick and came with a cleaning cloth and in a brown leather pouch. These have quickly made there way into my handbag and I use them as driving sunglasses. They feel extremely lightweight, but not flimsy and they even come with a free second pair! 
When you add your selected pair to your basket it then asks you what you use your glasses for, i.e short distance etc. From there you can choose a lens package, or continue with a basic lens for no additional cost. You then chose if you want sunglasses or not and then add your prescription (or not, like me if you don't need a prescription lens). The website really is straight forward and I had no problems at all. 

They currently have 50% off frames costing more than £55 with the code SPRING50 until Tuesday 28th April plus a free second pair. So two pairs of these glasses would cost you £62.50 with free delivery, saving £187.50 on the RRP. 

So ladies (and gents!) whether you need prescription glasses or sunglasses or not, the Glasses Direct website really does cater to all. The 50% off code plus the free second pair really is an offer that shouldn't be missed! Grab yours now!

Ted Baker Luggage Tag & Passport Holder by Flamingo Gifts

Happy Saturday everyone! 

I was recently sent this beautiful Ted Baker luggage tag and passport holder from Flamingo Gifts that I thought with two holidays this year would be absolutely perfect for my passport and suitcase.
Flamingo Gifts is a gift website stocking many brands including Flamingo candles, Ted Baker, Sass and Belle and many more. They are currently offering 10% off everything and also 1p delivery which is incredible! 

I chose the stunning Ted Baker Luggage tag and passport holder from the opulent bloom range that comes in a matching Ted Baker gift box. For £21.99 (and with currently 10% off making it less than £20!) I think this is an absolute steal for a travel set. 
I have just returned from a few days away in Majorca and of course both of these beauties were present on my trip. The holder made my passport much more noticeable in my hand luggage and of course looked super quite. On one side it even says 'fly me to the moon' - adorable! 
The print is just stunning, so girly without being over the top and I love the coral trim and rose gold detailing on the luggage tag too. 
How perfect do they all look together? 
You can purchase this luggage set here from Flamingo Gifts.

The Weekend Post No1

I love reading what people get up to at the weekend and thought I would incorporate a little weekend post of my own.

Yesterday, me and my better half Josh ventured to York for a day of shopping, lunch and afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is one of my favourite things to do and as a couple, we have quite got into going together. I booked in at The Hilton hotel in the centre of York, a more detailed review of this is to come, which was lovely. 
We lunched at Piccolinos en route to York and as Italian is my favourite type of food, we have wanted to try here for a while. They have a lunch time menu where 2 courses are £15 so of course we had to have a starter as well  It would have been rude not to! I opted for prawns all round! I chose a chilli prawn and ciabatta starter, whilst Josh had calamari. For main, I went for the chilli, courgette and King Prawn linguine (which was incredible!) and Josh went for Steak (which was no surprise there!)  
After a wander around York and a foundation purchase later (more about that in another post!) we headed to the Hilton for Afternoon tea. For £13.50 a head we really weren't expecting much, but after a 2 course lunch it was sufficient and a lovely end to a wonderful day. Of course I had to have a glass of champagne too! I don't think I have ever had afternoon tea where a glass of bubbly isn't involved!

Overall, a lovely weekend! I am now laid on my bed, in my minnie mouse onesie wondering where on earth the weekend has gone! I hope you've had a good one!

What did you get up to this weekend?

My New Arm Candy: Vivienne Westwood

Happy Friday you lovely lot!

If you have read this jewellery post then you will be quite aware that I am a sucker for all things Vivienne Westwood, I have been for a good few years now. It started off with jewellery but then I ventured into bags.

Whilst having a little online browse last week, I came across this beaut of a bag from Flannels, on offer at £165 instead of £225. It was one of those bags that you just can't stop thinking about and always go back to. That's when you know they are the bags worth having  They pretty much have this identical bag on sale now at full price and all I can think is that this is last seasons stock, with a slightly different lining. 
I have fancied a smaller bag, with a chain handle that's not a clutch, for quite some time now. Especially as I have a much bigger Vivienne Westwood handbag. Of course I would absolutely love a Chanel bag, but there is just no way that my budget would ever stretch that far, so for now I am more than happy with my new Vivienne Westwood bag.

The style of this bag is the Vivienne Westwood Frilly Snake Shoulder Bag. There is quite a few different bags and purses in this range. 

Since it arrived only a few days ago, I have literally used it everyday since. I just cant get enough of it.

My most favourite purchase in such a long time.

This bag is pretty much identical here.

The Most Perfect Pyjamas?

I have just stumbled upon these most amazing Pyjamas from Primark of all places and I just had to share them with you. Who doesn't want to look like a giant stripey tub of popcorn? I know that i certainly do! I definitely need to hunt them down! That is my quest for the week! I contemplated splurging on a set that someone is selling on eBay, but for £20! 
The top retails for £4 and the bottoms for £5. Fingers crossed I can get my hands on a pair!
Im pretty sure that Topshop do something extremely similar, for £26 but are sold out so I would happily settle for a Primark pair!

Flamingo Candles Spring 2015 Collection

I am a huge fan of the Flamingo Candles range. One of my favourites is the Vanilla Milk bottles which I keep at the side of my bed and it smells exactly as you would expect, so sweet and vanilla-y. 

On Monday, Flamingo Candles are Launching their Spring 2015 collection of five new candles. Fragrances include Rose & Marshmallow, Raspberry & Salted Caramel, Mango & Dragonfruit, Green Apples, and Daisy. 

Each candle has a burn time of 50 hours and is made with organic soy wax and a cotton wick, housed in classic jars. 
Rose & Marshmallow
Floral and sugary, Rose & Marshmallow is the ultimate sweet combination.  Base notes of sandalwood, musk, rose and orchid blend with fruity mandarin, cherry and raspberry and creamy vanilla, coconut and marshmallow.
 Raspberry & Salted Caramel
Sweet and creamy, Raspberry & Salted Caramel is a delicious treat for the senses.  Fruity notes of raspberry blend with anise, buttercream and vanilla-based caramel.
 Mango & Dragonfruit
Exotic and punchy, Mango & Dragonfruit combines base notes of lily, rose and jasmine with fruity green leaf, peach schnapps, sweet orange, melon, mango and apple.
 Green Apples
Fresh and zesty, Green Apples is the ultimate feel-good scent.  Inspired by the Granny Smith apple it blends leafy green accords with citrus notes of lemon, mandarin, apple and melon.  A fruity delight!
Fresh and floral, Daisy opens with a touch of lemon and grapefruit with accords of green leaf, green violet, apple, pear and peach. Leading into a floral heart of jasmine, lily, rose, violet leaves and freesia on a base of sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, vanilla and sweet, powdery musks.
The scent I have definitely got my eye on is the rose and marshmallow. It sounds incredible!

Flamingo candles are available to buy from the Flamingo Candles Website, ASOS, Joy and Amazon.

A Match Made In Brow Heaven?

Hello lovelies!

I have been using tweezerman tweezers now for yeaaaars! They are literally a tweezer you will use once and never ever look back on, I promise you! I lost mine once and honestly when you have to use a ordinary pair you really realise just how amazing they actually are.

I use the Steel Tweezerman Slant tweezers* although I have used the mini version aswell. Quality wise I would say they are no different, at all. They both do exactly the same job just one is bigger and perfect if you have huge hands (like me!) to get a good hold of them.
I then introduced the Tweezerman Point tweezer* into my eyebrow routine after disregarding it for a long time and not really seeing much point in such a thin, sharp tweezer. Boy was I wrong. These tweezers are so perfect for just the tiniest of hairs, getting behind them and been able to pluck them out, with such ease. I wouldn't say they are essential, but together with the slant tweezers they work so work.
They are extremely sharp, and stay sharp. Mine are pretty much exactly as they were when I first started using them 3 years ago maybe? The same mini pair, before I introduced the full size steel tweezers. 

Another of my brow loves is the Tweezerman brow comb* to gently comb through lashes, get them into shape so you can see where needs tweezing or cutting. 

The slant tweezers are the original and best selling tweezers by Tweezerman and no wonder they have won so many awards. 

The tweezers are honestly such an investment, they may set you back £20.95 or only £12.50 for the mini pair, however as soon as you use them you will instantly realise how much value for money they are. 

They are available in many patterns, prints and colours. They pink pair are just adorable!
Are you a tweezerman fan?
