summer beach wear from Rose Gal





Hey, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share with you, my top summer beach wear picks from Rose Gal. I recently discovered Rose Gal, after being contacted by a lovely lady from the company. I was asked if I wouldn't mind writing a little wish list of my favorite items. I only share things that are of interest to me and my readers and this site is definitely one to visit, everything is priced well and the clothes are bang on trend!


Recently I have really been obsessing over polka dots, in particular, polka dot swimwear. Rose Gal have a complete section dedicated to polka dot fanatics VISIT THE FULL RANGE HERE 
I love how polka dot swimwear looks, it really gives off that vintage feel. 




Here are two of my favorite swimwear items from the polka dot range





1.
 I love the high-waisted trend with jeans so, this swimsuit really took my eye. They're still sort of a bikini but not as revealing. I love the red with the black and white polka dots they contrast so nicely. I also love the whole vintage theme, Marilyn Monroe came to mind when I saw this. 




2.
 I love this tankini. The pink colour is beautiful and really represents summer. I think this tankini is perfect for people who are a little afraid of the whole polka dot trend, as it's very subtle.





Leaf print bikinis and tankinis   



I love the leaf print trend, it reminds me of tropical sunny climates. I have been seeing this print everywhere a lately, on trousers, t-shirts, and even bags so swimwear had to join in on the print. Here are my two favorite leaf print swimwear picks from Rose Gal. 


1.
I love, love, love pastel pink. How beautiful is the contrast with the Hawaiian leaf print and the pastel pink! This has to be my ultimate favorite. I just have an obsession with the colour pastel pink! 



2.
This one is for the bold women. I personally love how bold the pattern is. If you're more for a subtle print then the first option is the one for you, but I just love them both! Rose Gal has a large choice, varying from muted and really bold prints, so there's something for everyone.



Lastly, I would like to bring to your attention the amazing deals Rose Gal have to offer. They currently have a deal zone section click here to visit where you can really grab a bargain - it is definitely worth a look.



So, what do you think of Rose Gal? Let me know in the comments 


Until next time,
Lauren.

Mouth watering crepes - Sundaes Gelato Sheffield

Mouth watering crepes - Sundaes Gelato Sheffield

Hey, long time no see, right? Well, I am back and I come with a little review of a rather delicious place in my hometown. I went to Sundaes Gelato Saturday and everything looks and sounds delicious, after a good ten minutes going back and forth I finally chose this Nutella cookie crepe. I think the price, £5.95 is pretty reasonable as you get a rather hefty amount! The ice cream along with the crepe was so delicious and I would definitely have this again! I have to admit I am so rubbish when it comes to desserts and I did not finish the dessert -  it was a very poor attempt.

I would say try not to have a big meal before going here an empty stomach is best, as they are rather big portions! I went with a friend to this place and here is what she had, just to show you the different options.

I can't remember the exact name of this but it has strawberries, Nutella, and banana on it as you can see, haha! 



So, I hope you enjoyed me showing you these delicious desserts and maybe you have found somewhere new to visit if you're in Sheffield or visiting. 

Sorry if I made you hungry!

Until next time,
Lauren

Champagne afternoon tea

Champagne afternoon tea

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share with you the lovely afternoon I shared with my Mum for Mother's day. I booked this gorgeous champagne afternoon tea on Red letter days at Mosborough hall hotel. The sandwiches were so delicious and the scones were too, everything was really nice. We couldn't finish all of this, though but we did take some of it home as it would have been such a shame to waste it all. I think it was lovely to end the afternoon with a lovely glass of champagne it gave the afternoon tea experience a real sense of class and elegance. All in all me and my Mum had a lovely afternoon and we would both highly recommend Mosborough Hall hotel for afternoon tea if you're around the Sheffield area. 

The sandwiches included: Cream cheese and cucumber, cheese and onion and egg mayonnaise. We opted for the vegetarian option so you can include meat sandwiches if that's more for you. The scones were homemade and came with a side of jam and clotted cream. The last tier included an array of cute little miniature desserts which were very yummy!




So all in all a really lovely experience and I would highly recommend.

Until next time,
Lauren

Action photography - water skiers

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. First, before I introduce this post, what do you think of my new blog theme? I really wanted a change as I found the theme to be dated and it didn't go with my new style. These pictures were taken last weekend at Rother Valley. There were many water skiers around and I had my camera, so why not capture a few. I am very happy with these images as I have captured them in action and in the air. These images were taken when we had the lovely bit of weather, which unfortunately has left us now, sad faces.

So, as always here are the images and let me know what you think in the comments!










What do you think of my new theme and images? let me know in the comments.
Until next time,

Video: Sheffield Recovery Community - Mick's story



Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today's post is a little something different - it's a video I created! I interviewed Mick Hartley, project manager of the Sheffield Recovery Community. This amazing project prides itself on helping drug addicts get clean, and stay clean with help and support in a close group. 

Mick knows the struggle his self of what it's like recovering from drug addiction and decided to take action by setting up this amazing project. I asked Mick several questions all about his work and the project in the video below; it would be great if you could give it a watch and show some support.  This video is also for my final project at college, this is the last project I will complete before university in September!

The video is listed on my Youtube channel, and this so happens to be my first upload!





Let me know what you think of the video in the comments or on YouTube comments.
Until next time,

Ted Baker lipstick gift set

Ted Baker lipstick gift set





 Hello everyone, welcome back. Today I am sharing with you this gem of a lipstick set brought to you by Ted Baker. I never really knew that Ted Baker made makeup, when it comes to Christmas time there's a whole array of Ted Baker makeup; this is when I got this set actually. I am pretty sure you can still buy this set but I have only seen them on Ebay and Amazon. I would suggest being quick if you're thinking of buying one as they're very popular.

So, I have taken close up images of all the lipsticks and even included some swatches for you because I am that kind.

Now, the only thing about these lipsticks is they do not have a name/ shade so I am just going to have to refer to this at the hot pink lipstick. First of all, I was quite scared to wear this when I first saw it, as I am one for more nude colours but as soon as I applied it I felt so glam and I just loved it!
 Here is the swatch, as you can see it is very bright so I would save this for more special events rather than day-to-day.
 You can't go wrong with a classic red lip, am I right? I just love this deep red colour it's beautiful. I have used this several times when I have been somewhere nice and it's really complimented my makeup look, especially when I wear a brown smokey eye.

Here is the swatch, very bright and shows up well I am so impressed with this shade! 



This is such a beautiful day-to-day shade and it's totally my colour. You can never go wrong with a classic nude lip, it just seems to go with every makeup look you can imagine.


Here is the swatch, also you can see these are not matte they are very moisturising but after a while, I have found these look semi matte on the lips. The one thing I mainly love about these lipsticks is that they don't dry out your lips.
Another pink lipstick! but compared to the other one this is a more toned down version. This is a lovely pale pink natural lipstick and I have worn this for casual days and I just love how glowy and natural it makes me look.

 Here is the swatch, a lovely toned down pale pink, very cute indeed!


 When I am going out I love to wear a dark lip. This dark plum lipstick is a knock out; it just looks so fabulous and glam and really makes you stand out. I just love this colour so, so, so much!
 Here is the swatch, for some reason, it is showing quite pink but in real-life it is a very deep plum! 

 Another red, and this time it's a classic red. The other red lipstick was a very deep red, but this is a very classic Hollywood glam red which you just can't go wrong with when you're going somewhere special.

Here, is the last swatch. How beautiful and vibrant does this look!


Which is your favourite lipstick? let me know in the comments.
Until next time,
Lauren
