New In

Recent fashion buys
Some of you may remember that I was on a self-imposed shopping ban over the past 2 months. I'm proud to report that I made it. Yay! But before you congratulate me on having a strong willpower, I need to confess something - As soon as my ban came to a close, I went on a mini shopping spree. Oops...What can I say? A girl had to prepare her wardrobe for spring. 

Do you want to know what I bought? Then carry on reading...

Dorothy Perkins khaki shoes

Khaki seems to be the new black. So when I spotted these beauties on Dorothy Perkins website, I knew they had to find their way to my collection. 

Dorothy Perkins leopard print heels

Leopard print has really stood the test of time. While I'm not brave to don animal prints from head to toe, I think that every woman should have a pair of heels like that in her wardrobe to jazz up any look. 

Primark cross body bag

Primark has really stepped up their game this season. Can you believe that these small cross body bags were only £5 each. Aren't they cute? 


What do you think of my picks? Have you bought anything recently?

P.S. I'm taking a mini break next week. I should be back with a new post on Friday, 31st March.

Look of the Day: Ruffle Sleeve Dress

ruffle sleeve dress
Happy Monday! I hope you're well. The other day I realised that I haven't done an outfit post in a while. Time and weather simply weren't on my side! :( Luckily sun briefly came out last week so I was finally able to shoot some photos for today's post. 

As you know, ruffles aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I'm not complaining as I'm a huge fan of this feminine detailing. You may have seen one of my ruffled blouses in the post here.

So, when I spotted this bodycon dress featuring ruffled sleeves in Next's sale last December, I knew I had to add it to my collection. There was only one left in my size so that must have been a sign! 

I have to say that it was definitely a good choice as the dress quickly became my workwear staple. I swear I've been wearing it non-stop. I do wash it though. I promise ;)  Despite the bodycon fit, it's extremely comfortable and flattering. Here I paired it with ankle boots but I've worn it with over knee boots before. 

What do you think about ruffles? Are they yay or nay?

My Little #NoFilter Box

My Little #NoFilter Box
Earlier last week I received an email from the team at My Little Box saying that the delivery of this month's box would be delayed due to some problems they have experienced. So when the box arrived at my doorstep a few days later, I was pleasantly surprised as I didn't expect to get it for another week or so. I'm definitely not complaining and I have to say that this is one of my favourite boxes to date.

My Little #NoFilter Box
With the #NoFilter theme, the contents of March's box arrived in a pretty peach toned semi-through make up bag that from now on will accompany me on my travels. Inside the bag I found 4 beauty products that are designed to help you ditch filters and achieve the no makeup-makeup look. Among them there were a sample of Blemish-Less Foundation Primer by Laura Mercier that I can't wait to try as it promises to even out skin tone and help clear those dreaded blemishes; a sample of Ultra HD Loose Powder by Make Up For Ever, nude nail polish from My Little Beauty and a Selfie Foundation Brush for the picture-perfect skin. The brush is super soft and exactly what I needed as the one I'm using at the moment is in a bad state. It's time to chuck it out.

When it comes to lifestyle products, this month we received a pretty notepad which also features some tips on how to achieve perfect skin and a smart phone ring. I have to admit that I wasn't exactly sure what the ring is meant to do but apparently you can stick it onto the back of your phone to securely hold your device without worrying about dropping it or you can use it as a mini-tripod for portrait and landscape photos. Interesting...

CaseApp Review + Giveaway

CaseApp review
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I'm back with a new post and a giveaway.  But first, raise your hands if you love customising your phones, laptops or tablets! 

Well, in that case you may be interested to read today's review as I'm excited to tell you about my brand new custom iPhone case and laptop skin that I designed courtesy of CaseApp.* 

CaseApp iPhone case


For those of who haven't heard of CaseApp, they are an online store specialising in creating customised skins and cases for laptops and phones. They offer many pre-designed templates but if you want to unleash your creativity, you can either build your own case from scratch by uploading your photo or edit one of their templates by adding a clipart, quote or custom background. The process is very smooth as the website is super easy to navigate.

After spending more than an hour on their website playing with different options, I decided to opt for Marble in Bronze skin and case which is very sleek and grammable (all you Instagram addicts probably know what I mean). In order to make the design my own, I added a palm tree as I can't stop dreaming about exotic holidays.

Overall, I'm really satisfied with my products and would definitely recommend CaseApp to anyone who wants to customise their electronic gadgets. What's more, you can get 20% off your order with the code DAILYWEAR20. The offer ends on 31st March 2017.

In addition, CaseApp has kindly agreed to gift one of my readers with a case up to the value of £22. All you need is enter my giveaway below.

My New Glasses from GlassesShop.com

GlassesShop.com Review
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I'm really excited to show you a new addition to my glasses collection. 

As someone who has been wearing glasses since the age of 11, I feel 'naked' without them (and blind. I guess that's the joy of being short-sighted). Although some people hate wearing glasses, I see them as a great accessory that can jazz up any outfit. Hence, I have recently become a proud owner of the 9th pair of spectacles thanks to GlassesShop.com*. 

GlassesShop.com Review


If you haven't heard of GlassesShop.com, they are an online retailer selling a range of high-quality and affordable eyeglasses and sunglasses. Their glasses frames are very trendy so I had a tough time picking just one. 

After browsing the website for over an hour, I finally opted for Bensenville Wayfarer in Tortoise. I love them as despite the bigger size of the frame and thick lenses, they are lightweight and help me make a real statement. In case you are wondering, I'm blind as a bat. The sphere in both of my eyes is -5. 

If ordering glasses online seem a little tricky to you, don't worry as GlassesShop.com offers useful guides to help you read your prescription, pick the right shape of frames and choose correct lenses. Their customer service is excellent so I'll definitely be shopping with them in near future as I'm in need of new prescription sunglasses for summer. 

P.S. GlassesShop.com is offering 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames excluded). Simply use the code GSHOT50 at checkout. 

Have you heard of GlassesShop.com before? Have you ever ordered your glasses online?

Pink Alert

Pink for spring
Happy Monday! First of all, I'd like to apologise for being MIA last week. I hope you didn't miss me too much ;)

If you read my recent post on hot colours which you should add to your wardrobe this spring (here), you must have noticed that pink is not going anywhere anytime soon. From pastel to fuchsia, the pink palette is having a major moment. 

I'm definitely not complaining about that as I'm a huge fan of pink hues in general. They remind of my childhood. How I miss those times!

So when I discovered this bright fluffy jumper at the bottom of my wardrobe the other day, I was keen to pair it with my blush pleated skirt. I'm aware that not everyone will like this colour combination but I think that it makes quite a statement and is perfect if you want to channel some girly vibes.
