Everyone is just so much happier during the warmer months, aren't they? I know I am. It is so nice to wake up on a warm sunny day, open up the wardrobe doors and pick out a brightly coloured, lightweight piece of clothing and sandals rather than wondering how many layers of clothes you should wear so not to be at risk of hypothermia as soon as you step outside. I have been on the hunt for some lovely summer fashion pieces for the last couple of months and not a week goes by that I don't make an online order or two. This summer I am after gorgeous jumpsuits, playsuits and cute little mini-skirts.

I love dressing for summer but sometimes it can be hard knowing exactly what to wear during the Great British summer. I worry that I am too underdressed when I go out flashing my legs in a cute little mini-skirt or a tea dress, plus I worry that it will suddenly turn back into Winter as soon as I step outside which is why playsuits and jumpsuits are great alternatives to dresses and skirts. There's no faff with them, simply pull them on and go - they are effortless. 

Warehouse have the most gorgeous clothes this season and I would love to share a few of my favourites with you!* From stylish leopard print to blacks, navys and even my favourite, yellow!, you will find some perfect summerwear with Warehouse this year. Their jumpsuits and playsuits are perfect not only for lounging around the garden and beach but you can also dress them up for a summer wedding. Here are a few of my faves, as well as a few other Warehouse pieces that have caught my eye.

What do you think? What will you be wearing this summer? I really love the O Ring Playsuit and the Button Column Dress. You can dress both down for the day time and up for the evening with very minimal effort. I also didn't realise that Warehouse such wonderful occasion wear too. I absolutely love the Red Lace Midi Dress which I only wish was around last year as I would have definitely worn it to my sisters graduation last summer!

Also, I would like to tell you where I have been the last few months. If you don't follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you won't know that I have a new job as Cabin Crew! I will be writing a post all about it soon but if there is radio silence from me then it's because I'm up in the skies!

Honey, I'm back! 
I have been gone from the blogging world for a while, did you notice? Did you miss me?? I don't really have any excuses for my absence other than real life and boys got in the way but I am back with a really exciting post all about a clothing brand which I have very quickly managed to love!

Whilst I was on my little break I was contacted by the lovely people at fashion retailer Tobi.com, asking if I would like to choose a couple of items to share with you on here and after having a little browse of their website and their clothing selection, I jumped at the chance.

What is Tobi?
Tobi is an international online retailer which ships to over 100 different countries worldwide, making their clothes accessible to everyone. They gain inspiration for their clothing from LA/West Coast style which is trendy and laid back - think Cali vibes! Tobi inspire the next generation of young women to be the best version of themselves and to be confident in their own skin as well as in their clothes.

I was really kindly allowed to choose a few pieces of clothing and it was so hard to decide what to choose. I decided to go for pieces that were really wearable so I could get a lot of wear out of them but after browsing their website for half an hour this evening, I could quite literally spend a small fortune. They have really beautiful swimwear on their website at the moment so if you were on the hunt for swimwear for your summer hols then do have a little look as they are all original and unique pieces.

The 3 pieces I chose were...
Lace Up The Night Shift Dress - £39 / Bodysuit - £25 / Lace Up Joggers - £35
I thought the dress would look so cute on Valentines Day or on a date night. It does look a bit like a crop top and matching skirt but it is all in one with a zip starting at the "skirt". Even the back of the dress is pretty with an open back and I love the tie up front - just make sure you do it up tightly!

I absolutely love the bodysuit which is super flattering and perfect for summer. At the moment I wear it with ripped jeans but in the summer I will definitely be wearing it just like the model with some super short denim shorts.

And finally, I have not taken these joggers off since I was sent them. They are so cosy and comfortable, as soon as I have finished a hard day at work I whip my uniform off and get straight into these. Perfect loungewear!

Something else to tempt you into shopping with Tobi is that they offer free international shipping with the VAT & duties already paid for so there won't be any nasty surprises with more fees to pay to get your order into the UK so yay!

Below is a few other of my top picks from Tobi.com - there's quite a few!
Yellow Self-Tie Top - £21 / Front Tie Crop Top - £21 / Ruffle Scallop Top - £23
Dark Rose Monokini - £23 / Rose Strappy Monokini - £19 / Light Blue Monokini - £23

Look how cute everything is! I absolutely love the mustard yellow dress and the pale blue swimsuit above. Everything is so reasonably priced and the offer of free international shipping is definitely a major bonus! If you are ever on the hunt for that next going out outfit, swimwear, loungewear, daywear.. then definitely have a look at Tobi.com as they definitely offer you something different to what the likes Missguided and Boohoo are offering.

Whilst I love buying makeup, there is nothing I love more than buying fresh makeup brushes. I have always said that I would rather buy a new brush than wash an old one but unfortunately I'm not made of money so I don't buy them regularly but when I do, there is nothing I like more than seeing a fresh makeup brush all clean and sparkling new in its packaging.

I feel like whenever I buy new eyeshadow brushes, my eyeshadow application dramatically improves. A couple of years ago I applied my eyeshadow with ELF brushes and they were fine. Then I moved onto Morphe and Spectrum brushes and suddenly my makeup skillzz dramatically improved, even though I was using exactly the same products. I used to buy really cheap brushes and whilst they can be okay, I have learnt to pay a little bit more to get a more quality application and product.

I was recently in Selfridges in London and came across a whole section of Zoeva makeup products. I had no idea Selfrisges was a stockist for Zoeva so of course I couldn't resist a makeup brush purchase or two! I really wanted to buy a couple of the palettes as well as I know they are so highly spoken about but do I really need another soft neutral palette? Not right now so I decided to buy two pretty much identical eyeshadow brushes instead! They didn't have the rose gold versions just the standard original black handles but a brush is a brush so I went for the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush & the Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush.

About the Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush:
"The ideal beauty tool for creating perfectly defined, radiant eyes, 228 Luxe Crease Brush is an essential makeup brush for professional crease definition and a perfect eye contour. Designed to effortlessly blend eye shadow and shade colour transitions, 228 Luxe Crease Brush has a unique fluffy design which fits into the contours of the eyelid crease and takes the edge off colour."

About the Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush:
"It's all in the details when it comes to professional looking eye makeup; 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush allows you to create stunning ombre effects and create the smoothest transitions from light to dark with your favourite eye shadow."

The Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease Brush and the 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush both look pretty damn similar. Both are designed to fit into the crease of the eye and to blend eyeshadow out effortlessly. The only difference between them is that the 221 brush is more rounded whereas the 228 is pointed. Both blend out eyeshadow perfectly in the crease of the eye so there is no such thing as a bad makeup day when you use either of these two - or no unblended out eyeshadow, anyway! My eye makeup is my favourite part of doing my makeup and I have definitely improved when it comes to blending and applying liquid eyeliner. Whilst I am no Instagram guru and won't be filming any makeup tutorials any time soon, I do get asked about my eyeshadow and how I apply it and all I can say is blend blend blend!

I really love both of these brushes as they both make the application of eyeshadow ever so easy. They are both really soft to the touch and on the eyes without being scratchy or irritable and they are great quality. They are perfect at defining and contouring the eyes and blend all eyeshadows out effortlessly. If you have been after a really fluffy crease brush then I definitely recommend either of these two as they will work wonders for your makeup!

Review | Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease & 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brushes

When your sister comes home from university bearing gifts wrapped up in a Jo Malone bag, there is no doubt that the gift inside will be a much loved one. I've been feeling a bit down recently so my sister very kindly decided to treat me to a few little luxuries in order to cheer me up and boy, did it work.

Inside the Jo Malone bag, within a box wrapped ever so beautifully was the heavenly Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray which smells just as delightful as it sounds. I have only tried candles and cologne from Jo Malone before and whilst I was impressed with the candle, the cologne was a slight disappointment for me. I found that it didn't last too long on the skin and before you knew it the scent was practically undetectable which is a real shame considering it is a luxury therefore on the pricey side. But enough about that, let me share with you the Lime Basil & Mandarin Room Spray, something I would never have thought to purchase for myself!

About the Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray:
"Our signature fragrance. Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze. A modern classic. A burst of enticing scent. Instantly create an impression with a Scent Surround™ Room Spray.

The Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray smells utterly perfect. Fresh and zesty, the Lime Basil & Mandarin fragrance is a scent made up of citrus, green and spicy notes. It isn't sickly sweet or overpowering, it has just the right amount of spice to it to take it from a completely citrus-y, lime based scent and to turn it into something a little more interesting. We all know how hard it is to put the smell of something into words but even if you don't think citrus fragrances will be for you, it is definitely one to take a look at next time you pass a Jo Malone counter.

The product itself comes housed in a 175ml spray bottle and as the scent is rather strong, you only need a short spray to fill the entire room with. I love to spray it in my bedroom before I get cosy to binge watch Love Island and it makes my room smell absolutely wonderful. I have also been known it spray it onto my body as a body spray and I can confirm that it lingers for just the same amount of time, if not longer, than the cologne so make of that what you will!

I believe that the Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Room Spray will make for a perfect house warming present, or simply just for a gift to yourself to brighten up your day. It smells too good for words and yeah, let's not pretend it isn't expensive at £44 a bottle but as a special gift and a little treat of luxury, it is perfect.
