Now, usually in summer I tend to paint my nails with vibrant colors to reflect the sunny (well, not in England specifically..) weather. However, I made a recent discovery when browsing over the Barry M stand in Boots and picked up this unusual shade.

The colour is called 'Olive' and OLIVE IT (meant to sound like I LOVE IT..okay never mind). It is a neutral, almost khaki green colour and just works perfectly with my style. It looks beautiful with my mainly black and white wardrobe and adds an element of class to an outfit. It's long lasting and the 'Gelly' formulation is lovely and shiny. I particularly like how unusual of a shade this is and how it works so well as a summer nail polish. I love simplicity and this baby is as simple as it can get without being a dull and boring shade. I would most definitely recommend trying out the Barry M Gelly range, they have some great colors!

Barry M Gelly Nail Varnish: OLIVE

Now, usually in summer I tend to paint my nails with vibrant colors to reflect the sunny (well, not in England specifically..) weather. However, I made a recent discovery when browsing over the Barry M stand in Boots and picked up this unusual shade.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. So...I have a fear of crop tops. There. I said it. I have never plucked up the courage to wear one. The idea of having my stomach out on show terrifies me to my very soul. However, I've made steps for change.

I recently bought two crop tops which I plan to wear on my holiday in just over a week. It took a lot of guts, but I realized that it isn't that scary after all.
Crop tops look great and I always envy people wearing them. So, if you're like me and have been too self conscious to grab a hold of this trend, then I say DO IT. DO IT KNOW. There's no need to worry. Pair a crop top with high waisted trousers, shorts or a skirt and there therefore becomes nothing on show. Wear a crop top with a bikini and shorts on a sunny holiday, you're only keeping cool. Wear a crop top with a vest underneath, keep it casual. There are so many ways to wear a crop top and not feel uncomfortable or conscious. BE CONFIDENT and eliminate the crop top fear.

I am a real sucker for a good perfume. I just LOVE to smell nice, (Well, doesn't everyone?) So, here are my current Top 4 favourite fragrances...

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream- a fruity, floral, musky scent with a hint of coconut and notes of blackberry and jasmine too. It has a stunning blue, white and gold bottle and just screams spring/summer scent.

Vera Wang Princess- currently my all time favourite, explaining why the bottle is empty in the pictures above. It's a young and fresh scent with just the right mixture of fruity and floral notes. It's strong when first applied, but fades into a subtle girly smell. The bottle is in a lovely heart shape which i think reflects the smell of the perfume perfectly.

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre- a delicate fragrance with a contrast between floral and fruity, which is gorgeous. It is always present when applied and doesn't fade too much throughout the day. It is a light fragrance and comes in a classic circular Chanel bottle.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight- a twist on both the original Daisy and Daisy Eau So Fresh (a limited edition release for Summer 2014). It's a light, fruity, floral, sweet scent with notes of pink pepper, white tea and raspberry. It comes in a lovely tall bottle with a gold ball lid that has different colored daisies all over it; beautiful.
