Paul's Boutique SS15

I love it when brands do something a bit different from their usual collections, and I was massively impressed by Paul's Boutique's latest SS15 lookbook.
They're not a brand I usually shop at, but my opinion has massively changed after checking out the latest collection.

The brand has slowly been repositioning since 2013, especially with redesigning the whole accessories range, to make them more mature.
The aim was to appeal to a more sophisticated customer, while also being sold at the likes of John Lewis, and with a new premium price point.

This upcoming collection is cleaner, with more subtle textures and a strong colour palette to give it a much more premium look. There are a wide range of bags, from classic totes to larger bucket bags, as well as smaller leather goods, making them timeless and classic for all occasions.

Prices start at £25 for a wallet to £130 for the larger suede bags. You can see the whole collection at the Paul's Boutique website.

I'm such a fan of all the bags, from the classic totes to the more fun and colourful handbags. This new collection is such a great step in a new direction for the brand and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them.

Chocolate and Make up

I've had another few days of being ill at home and there are only a handful of things that are guaranteed to make me feel better. While Netflix is on in the background all the time, chocolate and playing around with make up also massively helped me recover.

I got the opportunity to try out the new Organic THIN bar and it was such a treat. This new thinner format makes chocolate so smooth and intense as it melts in your mouth (I can still taste it as I type). This was pretty much exactly what my life needed as I spent a few days curled up in bed, in my own self pity.

These news bars are made from organic Trinitario cocoa beans and Fairtrade ingredients to create four key flavours: Mint Crisp; Salted Caramel; Dark 70% Chocolate and Milk 37% Chocolate. I tried the Mint and the Milk Chocolate and both were such a treat. The Milk in particular was amazing as it just melted in my mouth, whereas the Mint Crisp was so pepperminty and fresh.

The Mint Crisp is exclusively available at Waitrose until the 2nd May.

My day off also let me play with make up brushes, and finally figure out what each brush does. I'm one of those 'Fake it till you Make it' people, and wearing make up has been exactly that for me. I pretended I knew about beauty for years, ever practising and trying out new brushes, till I knew exactly what everything was for.

These make up brushes from Tmart, who do a whole host of different fun products. Perfect for buying gifts for all kinds of people. There's such a great range of brushes, from foundation to eye brushes - perfect for any kind of make up.

Black and White

The monochrome look has always been my favourite colourway to wear. While I might add in some colour every now and then, black and white is probably the most common look I have.

How cute are my new Superga's? I've been meaning to own a pair for ages, so when I was given the opportunity, I couldn't say no. I opted for a casual classic pair - one that I could pair all throughout summer, and scuff accordingly (I do love scuffing white trainers).

Superga's are so comfortable too. The new collection is available from ASOS and I recommend checking it out.
