How To Style Red And Pink

This is possibly (hopefully, my last wintery look until the end of the year. As the sun has been shinning the last few days I have really felt in the mood for spring. That said, it's still pretty chilly so I put this look together.

The juxtaposition of the burgundy and the pink is really doing it for me. As the days get warmer, I think I'm going to enjoy wearing more of a brighter red with this Dior bag as I'm really loving the combination. 

This season, I feel like pink has made such a comeback. Everywhere I look from designers to highstreet, there seems to be this baby pink that keeps popping up. I find pink so girly yet sophisticated. No longer does it make me feel childish, it makes me feel sophisticated and elegant.

You've probably noticed that this in not my normal photography style, and yes, you are right. With Spring being my second favourite season (summer being number one, and spring leads to summer so you know), I thought I would do something a little different and incorporate the sun into my photos in celebration of warmer days. 

What do you think of this style of photography? Are you as excited for Spring as I am?

Get Your Teeth Whitened At The Harley Laser Specialist

This week I finally got around to getting my teeth whitened. It's something that I have wanted to do for a very long time, but I've always been worried. I've read countless reviews about sensitive teeth so it's always put me off. But one thing I will start is saying everyone's experience is different.

So I headed up to The Harley Laser Specialists last week for my first ever teeth whitening. After filling in all the forms an checking that I was eligible for it I headed to brush my teeth and go into the room to discuss what my treatment would entail and the aftercare.

I was recommended not to eat and drink anything but white foods. White bread, rice, boiled chicken breast, not even to let my toast to get brown for 24 hours. I'm the sort of person who doesn't sit will with being told not to eat anything, I wanted to come home and eat all the greens and food with sauces! I didn't as I knew it would ruin my results (but I really wanted to).

So the treatment itself is pretty simple. We measured up to see what shade my teeth were and then vaseline was added to my lips to stop them from getting dry during the treatment. The apparatus which opens your mouth was added (I'm not quite sure what the name is) and then the liquid gel was injected onto my teeth. This was then spread carefully with a cotton bud so that the gel did not get onto my gums. It is worth mentioning that it was only placed up to my canine teeth as my molars are actually quite white. 

The laser was then put on for half an hour. Once the half an hour was completed I rinsed out the gel. The process was then repeated one more time.

Once I had an hours worth of treatment we compared the colour of my teeth to the initial shade. I had gone 9 shades lighter. It is worth noting that the results vary from person to person. The fact that I had never whitened my teeth before meant that I had a really great result. I would love to head back to have another treatment in a few months to achieve the colour I desire.

For all my lovely readers, they are offering a 50% discount on an hours teeth whitening session. With the code 'TERAL99' it's simply £99. So try it out for yourself.

There clinic also offer various different treatments. As I adore you guys there is a code to give you 60% off of full body 3D laser hair removal for 1 year at £1,499 (usually over £3,500) Use the code 'TERAL32'. Alternatively, there is a 1 x session for under arm 3D laser hair removal completely free of charge so you can trial and see what the results are like, using the code 'TERALFUA'.

Meet Your New Jeans With Topshop

Jeans. Love them or hate them, I'm sure you've owned a pair (or 25) at one point in your life. Me, I love them. I have so many different pairs in different cuts, lengths and colours. With the biggest trend in jeans being the skinny jeans over the last five or more years, myself and the fashion industry have finally gotten bored, and have decided it's time to switch the jeans game up.

Joni Jeans. I'm sure that rings a bell with 90% or more of you reading this. It was by far one of the most famous skinny jeans from Topshop, (I was always more of a Jamie girl) but this season, they have launched their Meet Your New Jeans campaign and there's a style for everyone. Whether you're still a skinny jeans kind of girl, a Mom jeans or straight leg, you're bound to find a pair you love.

Half of the jeans in my wardrobe are from Topshop as their jeans are so affordable and the fact that they come in different lengths such as petite and tall s great for anyone who doesn't fit in that normal range.  

I have teamed my jeans with a head to toe look from Topshop, you can shop the look below. I decided to match my denim with a navy wrap around blouse and some red mules as I really like the way the red pops amongst all the blue in the look.

For me, I find a good pair of jeans is an investment piece. It's worth finding a pair that fits you well as you can easily switch your outfit from a day look to an evening look.

What's your favourite style from the new collection? Mine are obviously the straight leg, shortly followed by Mom jeans. They're perfect for spring.

Getting The Perfect Tan With Bondi Sands

Over the last few months I have been loving fake tanning. For years I was never into it. I had seen far too many orange bodies and fake tan disasters that I never saw the point of it. That was all until I was introduced to Bondi Sands. Gone are the days of dodgy tans, there's no streaky tans in sight for me.

Bondi Sands is an Australian brand but you can find it here in England (YAY) in Boots and Superdrugs. They have a full range of different type of self tanner's from everyday gradual to mouse's and even a liquid gold.

I've tried them all. And my favourite has got to be their new range the ultra dark. I'm the sort of person who doesn't want a light glow. I want to be bronzed. I ran fairly easily and want my fake tan to look like I have just come back from holiday and that's exactly what I get from the ultra dark range. 

A few weeks back posted a picture on my Instagram about my love for the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark and the next day met up with a few friends who were stunned by the results of my tan.

The first time I tried the Liquid Gold Oil  tan was a bit strange for me. As I was quite new to tanning, all products I had used before would leave an immediate colour so that's what I was looking for. But when I sprayed they liquid gold I couldn't see any results and kept reapplying. Suddenly, a few hours later I noticed that I had this absolutely stunning dark bronzed colour. And to my surprise NO STREAKS! 

I now know that I don't need to apply as many layers of the Liquid Gold to get my desired look.

If you're not running out to buy it yet I'm sure this next part will. I absolutely LOVE the scent of all the Bondi Sands products. They don't have any biscuit smell or any chemical smell. They simply smell of our coconuts! So fresh and tropical. 

Another thing I have noticed is that I tanned about 3 weeks before I started writing this blog post. Although the tan has faded on my arms, my legs are still going strong with no patches in sight. All in all this product deserves 5*s as I just can not fault it.

Do you enjoy using fake tan? Have you found a product you love as much as I love this one?

Wearing Navy And Green

In my head, it's officially spring, and that means one thing only. It's time to start bracing the cold weather and wearing dresses. If you've been following my fashion journey you would know that I'm not a fan of tights, (working in retail for so many years and being forced to wear tights has put me off for life) therefore, I tend to wear a lot more trousers in winter. 

That said, I LOVE dresses. They are my favourite thing to wear as they are so effortless. One piece and you're done. No worrying about having to find a top that matches or vice versa. But, it's still not warm enough to bare legs, so that means the thigh highs are back out for another season! 

This Hallhuber dress is absolutely stunning. You may have got a quick glimpse at this dress at my daily vlog here. It's the cutest dress I have come across in a long time. The fact that it's not a floral print means I can wear it all the way through to autumn, and possibly even winter (IF I dare).

What really caught my eye was the neck detailing. It has this type of pussybow/tie section which is attached to the dress and clips around the back. It adds this androgynous feeling to the entire look which I love.

I teamed it with a Navy blue coat as I like the way it juxtaposed with the green and creams in the dress.

What do you think of this look? Would you wear something like this?

Floral For Spring How Original

Lately, I feel like I want to wear more blouses. In the winter, no doubt you'll find me wearing jeans and the comfiest jumper, but as spring is on the cusp and I'm super happy about it, I thought this floral blouse was fitting.

As you all know, I dress for my emotion that day. If i'm not my usual self, I'll be in all black, something loose(ish) and something definately comfortable. And those days where I'm in a better mood I love wearing dresses and dressing a little more put together. I feel like my posts have become extremely comfort heavy, so I am making an active effort to add in more put together looks. Which style is your favourite on me?

This said, although once again I am wearing jeans, this pair have a slightly coated finish which make them look different to your regular black denim jeans. I decided to pair it with this gorgeous red floral blouse as it makes me feel so elegant and is a great contrast to the muted bottoms.
