Spring back the sunshine...

The Spring sunshine has disappeared in London and it needs to come back!



I purchased this beautiful blue waterfall maxi skirt from Zara, the colour and style just screamed at me and I didn't hesitate at £29.99. It will look nice dressed up in the evening and even during the day with flip flops.





I got 3 belts from H&M at £3.99 each. I got them in all different sizes so I could wear them on the waist or hips. A pop of colour this Spring is great to liven up dull outfits!



I have officially declared that I can not pull of a bright lipstick unless the sun is shining!

Below I am wearing Mac 'Impassioned' with a red lip liner underneath and then I dabbed some Strobe liquid from Mac to mute it down and add a little dimension which actually ends up making the lips look fuller.



On the subject of beauty, these gorgeous goodies came through this morning. The body shop has launched some lovely limited edition sunny scents and they are definitely worth checking out and stocking up for your holiday. The 'Dreams unlimited - Sun Fresh' scent in lotion form is my favourite, the 'White Musk - Sun Glow' eau de toilette is really nice too, but you have to wait a few minutes for the scent to develop as initially scent is a bit overwhelming.



Buying clothes and accessories for Esra is so addictive. Me and my husband just can't stop 'awww'ing and oooo'ing' over almost everything. Here's the latest long top/dress we got for her from Mama's and Papa's. (£18)



The print and colours are just beautiful!



And.... yes some red Converse for Esra. I wasn't going to get her some until she could walk as she will grow out of them quickly, but I just couldn't resist, plus they are a little big for her so she can wear them throughout Summer. They are so tiny and cute and maybe she can use them as decoration in her room when she's older, stash some stones in it and maybe turn it into a bookend? Ha ha, my justification for buying is that I will recycle things! :)



What will you be wearing when the Sun is shining?

The Body Shop goodies were sent for consideration for review and I wasn't paid to blog about them bla bla bla!

I love your lip color! I need to find a bright color because ( can't believe I'm saying this but) I'm getting a little sick of always wearing nude lip colors. Those Converses are too cute for words!
