Louise Gray for Topshop

I recently purchased the new Louise Gray for Topshop 'Junkyard' nail polish, the nail polish needs a colour underneath as the glitter comes out very sparsely, I chose to use white underneath!
I think you could easily use a bright blue or black to make the glittery nail polish stand out even more!

Shopping Spree

#Army Parka #Oxblood #Aztec #Studs #LouiseGrayforTopshop

     Okay so I think I may have spent a bit tooo much today! The spending started off at Topshop where I purchased a cute Aztec Bodycon skirt and some Louise Gray Nail Polish before it sells out! I then ventured to Urban Outfitters where I bought two lovely oxblood hue tops in the sale - Bargain prices! Keeping in with the oxblood theme (hot for a/w12), I also grabbed some chick Superga shoes! To complete my shopping endeavour, I bought my ARMY PARKA! I was so excited, I tried on one in about every shop, in every size and shape before falling for this studded Zara army jacket, I can already tell I will be wearing it every day in the winter... can't wait!

It's in the N A I L S

My attempt at nail art, Nail Art pens and jewels, Topshop Eclipse Nail Polish
Using a layer of Topshop Eclipse Nail Polish, followed by a few gold gems on each nail and a layer of top coat, I transformed my nails into something almost mermaid like! Not exactly rivalling the nail art some shops offer but oh well!

Which: Lightweight Parka

      (1) UO £75    (2) Topshop  £65    (3) New Look  £44.99   (4) Topshop £48    (5) UO £55
(UO = Urban Outfitters)
It seems that every A/W season, the khaki army style parka survives to make the on trend list.
This season however, the parka has a new edge when slotted into the current grunge trend. A/W 12 has decided to embellish the latest parkas with numerous pockets as seen at (1), loaded with leather- (2) and (3), covered in camo (4) and (5) as well as being decorated in jewels at Zara, more zips than you could imagine at Topshop and given that instant desirable cosy feel by the use of Sherpa at UO (5).

My favourite: Has to be the combined effect of leather with the khaki, I like the way the black leather is transformed into something less biker (which I normally avoid as I find it too harsh) and also makes the parka a bit less relaxed so it could potentially be worn out to dinner in the cold English weather! I predict that many purchases will be made on parkas this season, so opting for this version of the parka could make you stand out from the crowd!

Walking to Salcombe

     Yesterday my family along with my black lab Guinness walked from the lovely Hope Cove, Devon to Salcombe (Our fav destination in the UK.. apart from home of course!)
The day began with a 2 hour car journey to Hope Cove, before having Americanos and a yummy Almond Croissant shared between the four of us, we then departed Hope Cove and set off on our 8 mile journey! For lunch we purchased crab sandwiches (what else?!) and when we reached South Sands we all had scrumptious Salcombe dairy ice creams!
At around 4 o'clock we had reached the town of Salcombe fit with its expensive holiday homes and Fore Street filled with holiday makers! After pottering around the shops and me not spending a SINGLE penny (Shock ;o) we headed to our favourite pub in Salcombe, the Ferry Inn, for drinks and then to the Victoria Inn for a fish filled Dinner!
The entire time the weather was magnificent - Sunny and clear blue sky above!

New Dressing Table!

     Since my new dressing table arrived on Monday, I have tidied my entire bedroom, decluttering and cleansing my room so that it looks super duper pretty! I used to have to do my hair and makeup sat on my floor but now I can sit at my elegant dressing table - I love it!

o algarve

     For 10 days, my family and I escaped the British weather and headed to the Algarve! I had never before visited Portugal so I was very excited! The trip was lovely, lots of sunbathing, visiting pretty towns and strolling along the beautiful beaches with the sun streaming down your face! The food was also BEYOND AMAZING, every day I ate seafood, whether it was big juicy prawns, mussels or sardines it all tasted amazing! I also came back pretty tanned too which I was very pleased about!

Back to boring England!

1st Post!

So for months now I have been dyingggg to create my own blog! I am currently obsessed with scrolling through fabulous fashion blogs and they have inspired me to try and make one of my own! And so today I finally set up my account and created this: Choos and Chocolate! The name was randomly generated in my head, not that I own a pair of Jimmy Choos or am much of a chocoholic - I just liked the way it rang!
Here I go... blogging time!
