Good Reads

One thing you might not know about me is that I'm a massive bookworm....

There is nothing I love more than curling up on the couch with a blanket and becoming enthralled in a good book...

Or even perusing the local library and stumbling upon an old gem of a book.

Well, I've only recently discovered Good Reads

I know, where have I been!

Good Reads allows you to create an online library of sorts, rating books and finding new recommendations from online friends. 

Sounds perfect!

I'm slowly building up my book collection on there and finding friends to share book reviews with.

Are you on Good Reads? If so, leave me your name below and we can share our love of books! 

Here's my profile for all you lovely bookworms out there.

Pinterest loves #6

With so many apps stored on my phone lately, from Instagram to Twitter and so on, I forgot about the one I loved the most. 


So this week I've been busy rekindling my pinning love, and thought I'd share a few of my current inspirational pictures...

- Toasted coconut vanilla limeade.  I need to make this pronto.

- A simple white maxi dress for a hot summer day.

- The Great Gatsby.

- Oh, to be this cool.

- Two of my favourites combined - peanut butter and banana bread.

- Audrey Hepburn, as always.

What have you been pinning this week?

Get the look: Sienna Miller

Ever since I saw Sienna Miller rocking this cute little number from Matthew Williamson at the BAFTAs last weekend, I've been searching for a cheaper version this dress...

And my friends, I have found a very similar version that won't break the bank balance.  So if you also fell in love with Sienna's look, here's how to create a very similar look for less!

- Mint long sleeved skater dress from Independent Boutique, retailing at £99
- Studded shoes from Topshop, retailing at £60
- Hard box clutch from ASOS, currently on sale for £52

Now all I need is a St Tropez tan to recreate Sienna's glow, and I will be red carpet ready just like her.  Well, almost...

Friday Fancies: weekend outfit

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for this weekend.  My best friend is getting married tomorrow in the beautiful gower (please pray for sunshine / dry weather / no rain)...

However, before I can start prancing around in my beautiful bridesmaid's time to share my Friday Fancies outfit, with the theme relating to weekend wear.

This would be my ideal outfit for running errands - be that either walking Lena or wandering around the shops...

weekend outfit

You can't go wrong with a baggy striped top, skinny jeans and a leather jacket thrown on top!  All these items are from  H&M - my favourite shop for casual day wear.

What are you up to this weekend?

Currently loving...May

Reading...  The Great Gatsby.  I need to finish this before the film comes out in a few weeks - I can't wait to see Carey in all her amazing outfits.
Watching... Parks and Recreation. Oh my gosh...I just love this show.  I remember hearing about it from Jessica over at Belle Lumiere, and as she has such great taste in TV shows I knew I would enjoy this.  How right I was, thanks Jess!

Buying... shoes for spring.  I recently bought these chambray pumps from Next...
Loving... the fact that I have two weddings this summer, and I am a bridesmaid for both of them.  It is so nice to just enjoy being at a wedding, and not have any of the stress of the planning!
Wanting...  to start a countdown for my New York holiday.  Only 7 weeks to go!
