Polka dot

I know it may seem I say on many outfit posts that 'this is my new favourite dress' but I guess that's a good thing, I never post something that isn't a favourite item on my blog, rather simple. This, however is one of 'those' dresses that quite literally feel like it describes you and everything you want in a dress. 
I practically put this on fresh from getting it delivered through my door, I knew it would be love! 

Dress* - Poppy Lux Sugarhill Boutique, Shoes - Primark, Lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss 01

I'm still having a little love for pencil dresses and skirts and this is perfect, and even with a little cheeky split thrown in!
I find pencil fitted clothing can often swamp me a little If I don't wear it right, I'm a little short and find some lengths can make me look weird on me at times. This is just a lovely length and my ideal.
I also love the cut out, I have a love/hate realtionship but this is cut just right on the body with a subtle piece of back showing. P l e a s e ignore the fact the zip is a few cm's from the top, I took all these photos and realised just now and it's bugging me, weep!

Love the fact I can wear this dress casually and dress it up in the summer and also in the winter. 
I'm loving Poppy Lux and Sugar Hill boutique right now, I discovered their website and was in love with so many items. New website love. Plus, It must be fate, as while in Brighton I discovered their shop and picked up a few bits, shown in my haul here

What I wore #023 // Interview edition

Dress* - AX Paris, Shoes - New Look (same as this post)

When it comes to interviews I always like to look smart and presentable. If my face doesn't show how nervous I am (which it definitely always does) I hope my outfit helps me out and makes me look a bit more confident and professional.

It obviously depends on the job your going for and where it is, but I find this dress from Ax Paris is ideal for looking smart and professional. It's a pencil cut which are my absolute favourites at the moment. It really shows off your hips and waist as the main vocal point, instead of the neckline. I especially love the added lace overlay contrasting with the neutral shade underneath. With it narrowing in as it reaches the waist it gives the effect of a cinched in waist and is really flattering (l o v e) 

I was in a slight rush out when I took these but I wanted to take the images, totally forgot to post a full length without realising, it reaches just after the knee, like a typical pencil dress. I'll try and post a full length photo on my instagram!

Brighton travels #002

On our second full day, it was a full blown wandering day. (See part one here) We didn't get the chance to visit and see the Brighton Royal Pavilion on our last trip, we thought it was further then we realised. In-fact It had been a couple of streets away from where we were every day without even knowing! 
We took a few photos and sat enjoying looking at it in the really love evening weather, although we had walked there a little late in the day to go inside, we definitely need to make sure to go inside next time!

We also decided to visit a few more shops we had forgotten the day before, I finally found Beyond Retro, which I hadn't known of last year and intended to go into the London branches so many times and failed. I also had a mini mission to complete on finding Jack a present to bring home, just the bannofee pie flavoured stick of rock (yes, yes there is such a thing people) would not suffice. 

We wandered round exploring the little streets and popped in a few more antique shops. Then topped the evening off by sitting on the beach in the beautiful weather with a Pimms, rather lovely.
We also popped on the Pier and acted like children for a while, we were definitely not the only ones though!

It's incredibly tricky trying to fit four days of photo's into two posts but I hope you enjoyed them, see part one here!

Mr.Nutcase custom phone case // Review

For anyone like me, who has a little love for switching up their phone case, along with a love for photographs, you may love Mr.Nutcase!
Mr.Nutcase kindly offered me the chance to design my own case. I love having a custom case on my I-Phone, reminding me of some of my favourite moments. Even if I do sometimes find people staring at my phone while I casually tweet as I sit on the train, trying to catch a gaze of my photos and working it out. 

A plus with this brand is the fact they have so many manufacturers to choose from to fit your device.  Varying from Amazon, HTC, Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Motorola and many more. Not only phones however, you can also create a case for your ipad mini or ipod.

I always have a tricky time deciding what images to choose on my case, this is definitely not the worse decision to have!  I found the website really easy and simple to navigate and choose. First click on your manufacturer, in my case; Apple. In the next drop down box select your model, and lastly the type of case you want. Mine is called the 'Executive flip leather style' 

You then go on to chose the layout you want your photos to be on, on the case. With so many to choose from, you may be there a while deciding! 
I, as you can see from the photos choose the simple 8 box design but there are alot more. The photo's are not too small either, they are just the perfect size. I was worried it might turn up and have the photo's too small but it's just right! I also worried about whether the photo quality (many of the images I used my slr) would translate well on to the case, but I had nothing to worry about, the images looked amazing quality on the case, and also all the colours were perfect. 

I really like this case, especially the fact it flips over and covers my screen, protecting it while it's in my pocket, handbag, and just in general. It snaps into the plastic holder securely and is definitely not going anywhere. The case is amazing quality with the stitching and being very thick, meaning it will be really durable. Hopefully the photos won't rub off but time will tell, I think this case will really last me a long time! Flip the top over and the magnet snaps the case securely in place!   

Executive flip leather style - £19.95  // Mr.nutcase 

The case is only printed with photos on one side, with the back and side of the case remaining white. I like it like this, it's just enough! 
My case arrived super quick which I think is always a bonus with a company. I really like how good quality this case was, I was really impressed when it came! Mr.Nutcase also have snap on custom cases available for £14.95, which for a custom case I think is quite reasonable compared to other competitors prices. 

I would definitely recommend and use Mr.Nutcase in the future, I was left really happy with my case!
