These are my picks of the perfect pastels!Ice-cream colours are everywhere right now even though the weather isn’t ready for them it’s always nice to pick up a few spring/summer items in advance! Although pastels can be quite muted like this blouse from Oasis, stores such as Zara, ASOS and New Look have all got a hint of neon in their pastels ensuring you won’t look too washed out… pale lilac against pale skin can make you look a little grey! However I do love the muted ice blue of these skinny trousers from River Island, a very wearable pastel for spring! I just bought an apricot blazer from new look yesterday … it’s looking VERY bright currently peaking from my wardrobe considering the dull weather outside..
My favourite way to introduce pastels right now is by wearing pale violet and mint shade nails! Such as the POP Nail varnish above or what I am currently wearing Revlon Charming. The best mint shade I’ve found so far is Barry M mint green.
Pastels are a great Spring trend and there is so much colour choice making it really accessible for anyone.
*just take note too much ice cream can make you feel sick this also applies to ice-cream coloured clothing.

Friday Finds! So the first friday of every month I will put together a few items I find and like ( and that don’t fit into any other post I’m writing!). It’s a bit of a random selection, so I might theme it next month! There’s quite a few picks from Etsy, honestly I’d only ever heard rumblings about the site before so I’m not claiming I knew of it until now as I’m jumping right on the bandwagon! It has really interesting items that would make amazing gifts and some beautiful jewellery! Love these coffee cozies and this jewellery box! I’ve always been a fan of Cath Kidston stuff and this seems to be a new print featured on this day bag! I seem to have missed the start of the owl obsession with necklaces featuring in every shop, EVER! New Look, however has created this owl bangle which I think is really nice and little bit more original when everyone else is wearing the necklace! I’ve also included this gorgeous (little pricey!) ted baker scarf and a few other finds!
(I will definitely ‘theme’ it next time…)
