Swooning over Mulberry Lily

Hi Lovelies,

Apologies for being quiet this week - but it does mean I have been able to enjoy catching up with outdoor things - and my pink skin is developing nicely - which is as close to a tan as I ever get!

We have had a lovely weekend catching up with great friends and sitting outside and enjoying the amazing weather.

The Summer Sales are all starting nice and early - surely it cannot be a coincidence that they will coincide with my Birthday which is this week! My only rule with sales is to only buy something that you wanted and loved at the full price - otherwise it is not a bargain or an investment.

I wanted to update you on the SNS gel manicure that I had. Well, all I can say is that it is incredible! It lasted 3 weeks and even then, the only need for the infill was because of the growth of the nail at the bed - the actual gel was still completely chip free and shiny. So if you do have a salon that uses this system - I cannot recommend it enough. It means a visit only every 3 to 4 weeks is required - the perfect manicure!

I went for a clear colour this time and went for bright toes!

I have a fab reveal to show you! A perk of being a bit of a shopper is the early secret sales.
I got a discount code to use on items that are not going to be included in the sales.

I am so in love with this - a really classic new bag from Mulberry.

Mulberry Medium Lily with Gold Hardware

It is super versatile - you can wear it across body

or as a shoulder bag

and double chained

Its a great size for every day and holds loads.

It was so nice to get some summer wear out of storage - the girls have stolen some of my summer dresses too - so it was like having lovely sunny new wardrobes all round.

These are some of the things I have seen online that have made me swoon this week!

This stunning little tan leather suit from Red Valentino is so cute

Leather & Tulle Jacket - £855
Leather & Tulle Skirt - £650
Both Red Valentino at Net-a-Porter

Lace Midi Dress - £95 Topshop

This dress has just been released at Topshop.
 Another of their gorgeous Tea Dresses which have become my summer staples.
I think this print might be my favourite yet!

Poppy Print Tea Dress - £46 Topshop

I would love to hear if there is anything you are really hoping to snap up in the sales

Thanks so much for reading
I hope you all had a lovely weekend x

Lovely nails - and lovely Lily too. It's so reminiscent of the Chanel 2.55, but it's a lovely bag in its own right too - and looks really good on you. x
