Move over Jo Malone, there’s a new sheriff in town!

OK, Confession time – recently, I have found myself obsessing over candles. I know, I know.. how very Pinterest of me! Cliche’s aside, I love how aesthetically pleasing candles can add an instant dash of chic to an office desk or a touch of class to a coffee table and so on and so forth. Yes, I have turned into one of THOSE people – you know, the one’s who buy a bunch of candles and never light them.

Today though, I want to focus on one particular brand, Maison Ves..

Launched earlier this year, Maison Ves successfully intertwined all the luxurious elements we’d expect from a candle brand with a modern touch – hashtags.

Offering 8 different scents for 8 different occasions, each Maison Ves candle comes engraved with hashtags relating to the event. For example, some are more lighthearted with the Best Friend candle sporting not only a divine Black Fig & Vanilla scent but also tags such as #PARTNERINCRIME or the Engagement candle reffering to the event #GAMEOVER & #OFFTHEMARKET while emulating gorgeous scents of Lemongrass and Verbena. There’s also candles for Birthday’s, Weddings, Valentines Day, Thank You, Relax and of course, Mother’s Day.

I adore the concept of adding hashtags.. we are the social media generation and I think Maison Ves hit the nail on the head with adding a modern touch to their luxurious candles.

My mum is definitely getting one of these for Mother’s Day!

You can shop the entire Maison Ves line here.

“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” I hear you say.. but before you throw your Devil Wears Prada handbook at me, lets just take a moment to appreciate this beautiful exception to the rule..

I cannot express how much I love this dress – it is literally what fairy-tales are made of. From the moment I put it on, I had a tonne of different people stop me to ask me where it was from & how amazing it looked.

The watercolor print itself is divine and the fabric is really sturdy, so the dress stays up without the need of a petticoat underneath. I did opt to stick a tulle skirt underneath but more for warmth purposes. I teamed it with pair of turquoise suede platforms and a simple gold cuff to accessorise. I pulled my hair up in a high ponytail and that was it. The dress was the centre of everyone’s attention so I was sure to keep my hair and accessories simple. Even looking at pictures of it now is making a small smile creep up on my face – it’s one of those dresses that just makes you so happy! Literally Summer in a dress!

Speaking of Summer, how amazing is the weather at the mo?? Or am I just being really British by getting excited by a little bit of Sunshine? Haha ;)

Hope you’re all having a fab Saturday!

Thanks for reading.. until the next post!

Happy Thursday lovely people – we are almost at the weekend! Today, I’m posting my favorite look in a while with a total look from Windsor Store..

If you saw my last post with them, you may have noticed that the two are polar opposites – the first being incredibly girly and this one being a little more on the edgy side. I think that sums up my sense of style perfectly.. I dress how I feel on a daily basis and my tastes are so eclectic and I love that Windsor Store caters across such a wide range of styles!

I LOVE these leggings so much, they look and feel amazing and even though you can’t see it in these pics, they are high waisted with a front zip detail – amazing to dress up or down! I teamed them with a loose fitting brown tee and draped a black trench coat on top. I accessorized with an ethnic cuff I picked up in Pakistan years ago, added a STUNNING coin necklace, a black fedora and some classic Ray Ban aviators. To finish the look, I slipped on a gorgeous pair of patent leather peep toe booties I picked up from Debranded outlet.

I’ve been talking a lot recently about how simple outfits make me feel the most confident and every day I feel like it’s more and more true. I love how simple this outfit is but stylish none the less <3

On a personal note, I’ve been working none stop to make sure I keep posting regularly and I hope you guys are enjoying the regular updates! Make sure to drop me a comment if there’s anything you want me to focus more on like beauty, lifestyle, people or places!

Thank you for reading my loves, until the next post!

OFF DUTY

FINAL M&S

Hey my loves! So as you’ve probably seen, denim is EVERYWHERE this season – whether it’s 70’s inspired flares, dungarees or a pair of girlfriend jeans, a good denim staple is an absolute must have in your wardrobe this Spring. So, with that in mind, I teamed up with Marks & Spencer to style up one of the key pieces from their SS15 denim hub in a couple of different ways..

The key denim piece that I picked was these gorgeous dungarees. I’m always lusting over other peoples over all’s on instagram and thought it was finally time I got a pair too!

I went for a total ‘off duty’ look and teamed the over all’s with a graphic print top from Another 8 and my trusty Nike Air Force 1’s. I put my hair up in a messy bun and finished the look with some blue mirrored aviators.

How CUTE is that lil pup? His owner walked over and asked if I would take some photos with him and it made my day – he was so adorable and a total diva in front of the cam! Right, now onto my second, more dressed up look!

I wanted to glam up the dungarees a bit so teamed them up with this roll neck knitted vest top, a killer pair of heels from Windsor Store, a gold cuff and some midi rings. I let my hair down and added my green mirrored aviators to finish the look. I would totally wear this look on a ‘day date’ – glam whilst still keeping it casual!
