What I'm Wearing | Ralph Sunglasses

Every year I like to add a new pair of sunglasses to my collection. I'll wear sunnies all year round if the weather is bright, but of course the beginning of the summer months hopefully means more opportunities to rotate through my collection. My most recent addition and current favourites are the Ralph 5162 in tortoise shell by Ralph Lauren. They were kindly sent to me from Sunglasses Shop after I spent hours browsing their site (new glasses, it's a big decision right?) and although the Ralph 5162 aren't wildly different from the other sunglasses I own, I like them very much.

They aren't cheap, as to be expected from a designer pair of sunglasses, but I feel no reason to save them for a special occasion. They go with everything and anything. I know what I want when it comes to sunglasses, I know this retro shape (round with pointy corners) suits me. I'm a big fan of sunglasses without nose pads as those can loosen over time or bend out of shape and I need a pair I can push on top of my head without fiddly bits getting tangled in my hair. The Ralph 5162 remind me a lot of the Ray Ban 'Erika' which I've been meaning to try, but the Ralph arms are slightly thicker and lenses a bit rounder.

What I'm Wearing | Spring Outfit Day-to-Night

Spring is here! Slowly the weather in the UK is improving (let's not talk about the snow we had last week) and it's time to start thinking about our spring and summer wardrobes. Most of my summer clothes are packed in boxes under the bed. It's tricky knowing when to make the switch and pack away my winter jumpers. But I'm definitely ready for warmer weather and fewer layers! Today I'm styling one outfit in two ways, taking you from day to night. Sticking to our minimalist fashion goals (or trying to) is all about styling the same items for new occasions...

Makeup for an Adventure Holiday

In a few days I'm heading to Center Parcs for mini holiday with my best girlies! I'm really looking forward to it, I haven't been to Center Parcs since I was little but I have great memories of the family holidays we had there. We have our activities booked and I'm sure we'll be doing a lot of walking and/or cycling around the forest too. I won't be worrying about makeup all that much, I'll be too busy hurtling down the rapids at the Subtropical Swimming Paradise! But that said, I am going to pack a small bag of everyday beauty bits for our action packed holiday. My go to items that are perfect for an adventure...
