Here is a little inspiration I have taken from the April Zara lookbook. I think all this sunshine (which seems to be hiding today) has me ready to start wearing summer clothes. I am on the look out for a crisp white shirt and a white blazer as I think they will be ideal to mix with bright or pastel colours.
We have had beautiful weather in the UK this week and I hope you have all had the chance to enjoy it. I am finally having the chance to get out into the warm weather today and will be heading down to the beach with a magazine. I have once again been wearing Romantic by Mavala
on my nails this week as it goes well with the lovely weather. Romantic has the perfect summer feel to it and does a good job at not chipping as I type away on my computer all week.
I have used Romantic quite often since I got it from a local shop in February and I really think this is a colour everyone should have in their summer nail varnish collection. Today I am wearing a white dress and I simply can’t get over how lovely Romantic looks against the dress. I will be sharing photos of today’s outfit in another post. I am not saying that Romantic is the only colour you should have in your nail varnish collection for summer, but it’s definitely one which should be within it. I have my eye on a few pastel shades to add to my summer collection and I will be keeping you updated with the ones I go for.
What colours have you been wearing on your nails this week?
On Sunday I went for a lovely walk around Southwold, the weather was warm and I had my camera in my hand. I was walking by some fields when I noticed all the cows acting a little unusual, in the distance I could see one cow walking across the golf course and realised this would be why they were all so worried. She has escaped from her field and was making her way into the town, I think she actually stopped in another field to check out the grass and as far as I know her owners soon helped her back to her usual field. Her friends and family in her field will have been pleased as they were all very distressed that she had marched out of the field. I took advantage of the cows being close to the path where I was and snapped a few photos. Don’t worry, they all signed consent forms.
Living Nature Illuminating Tint is soft on your skin and gives a highlight to your face as opposed to a full cover up. This is perfect for me because I like to let my skin have the chance to breathe (sometimes) and yet still wear a tint so that I have a little glow to my face when I leave the house at 7am. Yes, 7am is when I am getting into my car, which really isn’t cool. I only manage to leave so early with a little help from Nespresso and Living Nature Illuminating Tint. I am a big fan of Living Nature products and have never had any problems with my skin when using them.
Those of you looking for full coverage should avoid using a foundation tint but instead mix it with full foundation to give an added highlight.
Price: £20 – I have actually used this several times before and as it always lasts a long time I am happy to buy it again. Depending on the time of year and what other products I am using I usually find this lasts about 4 months. That’s £5 a month which is quite cheap when you break it down.
Do you like to wear a tint or a full cover up foundation?

I keep trying to listen to the radio every morning when I get into the car but I just can’t seem to handle it. At 7 am it seems to be loud talking and shouting with the odd song here and there. I don’t mind talk shows, I actually really enjoy them especially late at night but it bores me a little when it’s all about shout outs to other people. What I need at 7am is some fab music to get my day off to a good start.
Over the last two weeks I have had a few albums in my car which I have grabbed from the top one of my boxes of music. I have quite a lot of music and at the moment it’s all stored away in boxes since I have moved and am not sure where I will be heading next. I do plan on picking out a selection of albums from one of the boxes so I can have a wider selection of music for my morning drive to the station. Here are a few songs which have made it on during my morning journey to the station.
The xx, Example (his first album not recent ones), Lightspeed Champion and Black Sabbath.
