Casetagram Review & Giveaway!

Iphone 4s Custom Phone Case - Casetagram*

Hello lovelies! I was recently contacted by Casetagram who ever so kindly gifted me with a voucher so I could create myself a custom phone case. They're super easy to make too, you simply pick a style of collage through an online design app on their website and upload images using Instagram, Facebook and personal photo's uploaded from your computer.

Casetagram cases are quite popular in the bloggersphere and I've had my eye on purchasing one for a while so I was super happy when they got in touch! I think it's a lovely way to make your phone more personal and it allows me to keep all of my favourite photo's to hand. The case is a hard case too so my phone will always be protected. Casetagram also create cases for iPads, iPods and Galaxy phones.

I've also been given the opportunity to give a custom Casetagram case away on my blog for one lucky reader! The giveaway is open internationally and the winner will be announced two weeks from now on Sunday 12th January. Simply enter using the Rafflecopter below - Good luck! :)

What I'm Wearing: Simple

Cardigan - Primark, Leigh Jeans - Topshop, Tshirt - H&M, Backpack - City Backpacks*
Watch - Fossil, Trainers - Maxstar*

Hello everyone! So today I thought I'd pop up a nice casual outfit. I bought this cardigan over a year ago and I think I've worn it only once before. This past week or so however I've been repeatedly reaching for it and I really like it.I thought I'd make it the main focal point and wear a plain grey t-shirt with my trusty Leigh jeans. I would of popped my Converse on too but they are literally falling apart, its heartbreaking - I desperately need some new ones!

I was kindly gifted with this Backpack from City Backpacks and I just had to feature it in my OOTD, I absolutely love it! It's a nice size, perfect for University and I love the beige colour of it too with the complimentary brown leather buckles and straps. The main body is a canvas material too so the bag is sturdy and durable. It's also a lovely fashion accessory, I'm in love with the whole backpack trend! You can view more of their bags here (I have a bit of a mental wishlist going on!)

What do you think of backpacks?

What I'm Wearing: Pink Denim

T-shirt - Choies*, Shorts- Vintage, Trainers - Maxstar*

Hello lovelies! Just a quick one today. I can't believe how warm (well, hot) it is outside! On my last outfit post I was dressing for autumn and now I'm back to a colourful summer outfit- yipee! I just threw on this t shirt and shorts and thought I'd take a snap of my outfit. I never really wear pink so this outfit is definitely a rarity- I think something just came over me since the sun made an appearance.

Hope you're all having a lovely week :)

What I'm Wearing: Gorgeous Couture


Evita Maxi Dress - Gorgeous Couture*

Seeing as this is a rather different style of OOTD I thought i'd spice things up a little and change locations...to the other side of my garden! Also its super bright and sunny today so the wall flower I usually take it in front of was so bright my eyes started burning and I started melting. I dashed to the shade and the lighting turned out a little better (although not amazing). I'm after a canon so once I have that I can mess around with lighting settings and all that jazz but for now, this will do! Plus as the dress is white it was even harder to photograph so I thought my nice red fences would do good enough.

This dress makes me feel a million dollars! (Or great British pound...) and it fits like a glove. It arrived ever so beautifully in a box with purple tissue paper and a lovely velvet hanger. I was too scared to pop it on as its a little out of my price range and I didn't want to break it (lol!) but I would definitely splurge on a beautiful dress like this if I was to go to a prom, ball or if I ever become famous and walk the red carpet... (a girl can dream!)

I thought I'd let the dress speak for itself and wear no jewelry or add any accessories. On my face I opted for dark evening eye make up with lots of black shadow and liner and finished of with rosy cheeks and a light pink lip. I loosely curled my hair and played around with it with my fingers to give it a bit more oomph! 

You can see the full range of Gorgeous Couture here. What do you think of the dress?

What I'm Wearing: Festival Fun


Coat - Next (similair here), Fringed Crop - Internacionale, Shorts - Levis, Bag - Asda, Headband - Primark, Converse

No I haven't been to a festival...no I'm not going to one either (sigh) I promise you creamfields I will be there next year & Avicii.. I will make it next time! I fancied having a little play around with outfits and seeing as though its the season of festivals I though what better than a festival inspired outfit! Of course If i was at an actual festival I would switch the Converse for a more practical pair of wellies! 

It was no doubt I had to start off with my vintage levi shorts and seeing as though its summer fringing is a must - it's a definite festival trend too so I thought perfect. This beautiful crop with fringing from Internacionale will do the job, as well as tying it in with my fringed bag to match. I then popped a headband on- I'm not one for floral crowns so this elastic headband did nicely (I pinched this of my sister for todays pics!) & Finally to top it off I popped Ruby Woo by Mac onto my lips. I think I've done a pretty good job! Just need a Festival now...

Hope you're all having a lovely start to the week!

Bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review


Bakerdays are an online company that specialise in personalised cakes, perfect for any occasion. I was very kindly gifted with the letterbox cake which is a 5 inch cake that will cut into 3-4 decent sized portions. It's named the baby of their cakes as their larger cakes have around 50-60 portions. It does exactly what it says on the tin too and gets delivered straight through your letterbox, so no need to worry if its a gift or you won't be in on the day you're told it's being delivered! 

You can choose from their choice of designs or create your own. I opted for the Keep Calm and Party On cake - It's pink, what more can I say. They have an incredible selection of designs and with the design your own feature you could have absolutely anything you wanted. This little beauty arrived on my doorstep within a couple of days and I was eager to tuck in a have a slice. It came very well packaged and all in one piece. You also receive a little card and balloons which I think is such a lovely touch. The letterbox cake is priced at £14.99 and I think it's a lovely thoughtful gift for anyone. The cake is also super yummy- I opted for sponge but they also do chocolate, fruit and gluten free. 

Overall I think Bakerdays have such a brilliant service, its a unique idea and I will definitely be making future purchases for loved ones on special occasions.

Packing the case!



Seeing as though I'm off on holiday soon I thought it would be a nice idea to give you all a little sneak peak into some of my holiday bits and bobs that I've packed. I probably won't be doing outfit posts whilst I'm away- I'm off on a girly holiday to Zante so i'll just be throwing beachwear on in the day and then I guess 'clubbing' outfits in the evening. I might share a few snaps of the actual holiday though afterwards, it just depends If I get any pictures which aren't of me drunk and pulling stupid faces...

I've got quite a few pairs of shorts, cami's and crop tops for the evenings and a dress- I have an outfit planned for every night and I even have a few back ups! I've also got some vouchers too so no doubt before I leave I'll pick up even more bits (I prefer to have too much that not enough). I still need to figure out what I'm traveling in, I'm thinking of wearing either a maxi dress or a cami top with pants and sandals. I love these trousers from Box Clothing - I think they'd look gorgeous with a black cami and black sandals, so I think I'll go after something along those lines, comfortable yet stylish!

For accessories I think I'll just end up packing a couple of statement necklaces to finish off the outfits for the evening and a couple of clutches. I also have 3 pairs of sandals and my white converse for footwear- and flip flops for the beach of course! 

Are you off on holiday anywhere nice this summer?
