Congratulations To The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge

What a wonderful day for the Royal Wedding! Kate Middleton looked breath taking in her Sarah Burton for McQueen dress and 1930's Cartier tiara on loan from The Queen( I want to borrow it too). How gorgeous did Westminster Abbey look too with all those trees?! I think 99% of all the posts on Twitter and Facebook today where related the Wedding! Everyone commented on how very Grace Kelly, Kate's dress was and I couldn't agree more! She made a wonderful choice for both of her dresses, I just loved the strapless one she changed into for the evening reception hosted by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace! Oh and I can't forget to mention how very handsome Prince William looked in his uniform. I'm so glad I got to watch this piece of history and I'm amazed how people travelled from all over the world to see this historic event!

Outfit Of The Day: Proud To Be A British Girl

So I'm up and awake and just changed out of my PJ's into something a bit more patriotic to watch the Royal Wedding! Of course it had to red, white and blue! The sun is starting to creep out from behind the clouds so I hope it stays out for the Kate and Will's big day! I'm currently watching all the guests arrive, I'm loving watching what everyone is wearing, oh what I would give to have been invited to this Wedding!

BCBG Dress, Report Flats

Me just dancing around, i'm so lame haha!

What's everyone else wearing???

I also just joined Twitter the other day and I'm just getting the hang of it so follow me if you like :)

The Royal Wedding!

Everyone seems so be super crazy excited over the Royal Wedding today! I will be watching but I really just wanna see her dress, that's the most exciting thing for me! I will just be at home watching but what is everyone else's plans?? With between 1 and 2 billion people expected to watch, I wonder how Kayte Middleton is feeling this morning!

So here's to a long and happy future for our future King and Queen of England!

H&M Conscious Collection Review Take Two

I went back to H&M last week with a bit more time to spare and they had restocked some of the pieces from the new Conscious Collection so here is a another review with some actual pictures this time!

This is the dress I really liked last time and me and my sister both tried this dress on! I gotta say it did look better on her! I loved the tie straps and the lace detailing! I can't remember how much this one was, I think it was £29.99.

This dress comes in the pink/nude and white! I tried on the pink/nude color but couldn't pick a favourite out of the two! This one retailed for only £19.99 and is one of the cheapest dresses in the collection! The flower detailing on the shoulders is a nice touch! The only thing that put me off this dress was I felt there wasn't enough shape to it!

This blazer isn't part of the Conscious Collection but was hanging right next to it! It actually goes so well with a lot of the collection with its white waffle material and pink lining!

This is the dress I grabbed last time in a bigger size and it was huge! The had smaller one this time but I would have liked to try the size smaller too as this one still felt a bit big on me! the sleeves are gorgeous on this dress!!! This one was £29.99.

This is my 'Princess Dress'. I hadn't seen it last time and I hadn't seen any pictures of this piece from the collection but when i saw it hanging there I had to try it on! The pictures don't do this dress justice in any way! I felt like a Princess swishy around the changing room, I want to throw a Garden party and wear this dress! It retails for £34.99 and is a light pink/nude color in person! Unfortunately the smallest size they had was big on the waist for me and when I bent over the front gaped a little bit too much for my liking, I don't wanna be falling out! I will be hunting high and low for this dress in my size from now on!

I did leave with two more pieces from the collection this time! This top is pretty plain and simple and there is nothing stand out about it from the rest of the collection, but I did leave with this as I like the simplicity of it! It's just £12.99 and has a black tie around the middle, which I think I'm going to replace with something floral! I plan on pairing this with, well everything from maxi skirts, to jean shorts and cargo trousers!

I also found the gorgeous scallop hem jacket that I had been hunting for! This is a steal at just £29.99 and so light and airy, it's perfect for breezy summer days to cover up over a floral dress or to pair with dark jeans on a chilly evening! This was the piece I wanted the most so I left H&M very happy!

These two pairs of shorts are still on my want it list along with the long white maxi shirt and my princess dress! I will keep searching for my size next time I go!

Outfit Of The Day: Big Cat

After being told I looked like I was going on Safari at the weekend, I decided to wear my H&M blouse and pretend that I was a big wild cat haha! I love this H&M blouse, I was planning on wearing it with shorts again like last time I wore it, but after a weekend of beautiful weather the sun decided it was time to go on vacation again and it went rather chilly! So I took a some inspiration from Amber over at Amber's Notebook and paired it with jeans! I got this shirt last month but they still had it in the store when I went last week if anyone is on the hunt for one!

I forgot I had these jeans but I think I might pair them with this blouse next time I wear it!

Outfit Of The Day: Blue Rose

I've realised how ghostly and white I am from all my posts recently, eeekk! I can just never seem to tan, I have to be so carfeul with my skin because burn and go lobster red so easily so I always pile on the suncream before I go out! I dug out these old pieces from last summer today! I spent the morning sat in the garden and then met up with some friends in the afternoon and we went and sat down by the river and enjoyed some ice creams! Everyone will be back at work tomorrow morning, but not me! I have Tuesday off as I had to work Saturday!!!

Primark Tank & Shorts, Alternative Apparel Wrap

Outfit Of The Day: A Wild Easter

My Easter Sunday was spent taking my sister back to University, but once we got there I had some time to walk around and enjoy the sunshine with a smoothie and the car journey meant I could catch up on some much needed sleep! Everyone told me I looked like I was going on a Safari yesterday! I didn't come across any wild creatures on my trip, except for the Easter Bunny! My mum gave me this scarf last week that she picked up in H&M and she couldn't have picked better! It's a great look for less of the Tolani Leopard Infinity Scarf I've been wanting!

Outfit Of The Day: Missing Out????

Yesterday was another gorgeous day during the Easter weekend and I spent it at work, booo. The only plus side was the nice air conditioning at work, and I get Tuesday off instead! As soon as I got home I threw on this Forever 21 dress, which is super light and airy and keeps me cool! It's not the most flattering dress in pictures I've discovered, but it's great for muggy humid days! Oh and this new hat is not leaving my head!

Happy Easter Everyone!! I hope the Easter Bunny hopped along and dropped off some yummy Easter eggs to you all! I will be spending most of today in a car since we have to take my sister back to Uni for her exams! Her two weeks at home have gone so quickly, I can't believe it's time to say goodbye again! She'll be home again at the beginning of June, which isn't too far away and I have plenty of things to keep my busy in the mean time!

I thought I'd share some pictures of the little Easter set up in our living room, my mum created earlier in the week! I can tell you those chocolate mini eggs didn't last very long at all!!

Stacey's Smiles :)

It's Easter weekend, the sun is shinning and my sister and friends are all home! Those are more than enough reasons to keep me smiling but here are just a few other things that made me smile this week!

I bought some raffle tickets for the Easter Raffle where my mum works and I won this  little Easter Bucket full of goodies! It even had one of my favoutie Malteaster bunnies in it!

I'm a big fan of Lush products and I love their environmentally friendly knot wraps they do, they're good for a green planet, stylish and after the bath bomb has gone you still have something beautiful to keep! So when I walked past and saw their Easter range I had to get one of the bunny print knot wraps!

And inside my wrap is this little Hippy Chick

'Chicks everywhere need this zesty grapefruit bath ballistic. The bohemian, refreshing scents of frankincense and citrus essential oils will perk up even the most boring baths as it fizzes off into the water. Drop it in when you're in need of a spring in your step this Easter. Anyone who loves our grapefruit-loaded Happy Hippy shower gel will love the Hippy Chick. It's clucking great, so buy-buy-birdy'


And as if this week couldn't get any better I found out yesterday I had won this Lauren Moshi Bow tote bag from a blog giveaway! I can't wait for it to arrive, it'll be perfect to toss all my essentials in for my flight to Rome.

 Yummmmmmmmmm Ben & Jerry's! Who doesn't love this stuff! I feel that we're at a disadvantage to all the Americans across the pond who have a much larger variety of flavours available to them, but we did just get this flavour here in the UK, and I am coconutterly crazy over it.

Me and my dad finally got around to booking our trip to the British grand Prix in July! It's only 77 days away! Let the countdown begin!

Chan Luu Vs New Look Gold Nugget Wrap Bracelet

I love Chan Luu bracelets and own a couple of them, which get a lot of wear! Chan Luu has a huge celebrity following with everyone from Lady Gaga to Ashley Greene to Megan Fox, seen wearing one of their bracelets wrapped around their arm or neck!

The classic black leather and gold vermeil wrap bracelet retails for $220 here. I found this look for less at New Look for just £1.50 on sale! I can't see it online but be sure to check out the store if you have one near you!

The New Look version is the top bracelet with bigger nuggets and it isn't quite as long as the original Chan Luu version!

They even made it with a similar gold colored clasp!
