Summer Love Tag

11mf6dw

The beautiful Scarlet at Anxiously Bold tagged us for this and we thought it would be really fun to do, so here goes!

1. Summer lipstick you’re loving?

C: Mac in Creme Cup – Annie got me it for my birthday and I love it so much!

A: Revlon in Peach 075 (see it in our haul here)

2. Summer nail polish you’re loving?
C: Models Own scented nail polish in “Grape” is the perfect Summer pastel lilac. I also love Annie’s choice too!

A: Soigne polish in Persimmon, another review here from us -but it really is the best nail polish!

3. Bikini you’re loving?
C:I haven’t been on holiday this year (apart from our long weekend glamping) so haven’t worn any bikinis!

A: I took this bikini top from Topshop on holiday this year – it’s so so comfy and flattering, and I wore it with leopard print bottoms.

4. Favourite summer frappuccino from Starbucks?
C: I don’t really go to Starbucks… but if I did I prefer sweet flavours. So probably a caramel or vanilla one!

A: I don’t drink coffee – but I am loving Costa’s Strawberries and Cream coolers. Amazing.

5. Favourite fake tan?
C: I don’t normally fake tan, I’m happy with my ghost like skin. However, after actually going outside this year, I did get some dodgy tan marks that I used gradual tanners on to cover up. I tired the St Tropez Gradual Tan and the Nip + Fab 365 Body Glow Fix and was suprised/impressed with both of them.

A: Erm I don’t fake tan. I’m super pale/practically blue and the thought of slathering myself in something orange is just not appealing – esp as I have really orange hair.

6. Favourite summer song?
C: Obviously “Summertime” by Will Smith!

A:I love West Coast by Lana Del Rey

7. Favourite summer accessories?

C: My sunglasses and midi rings. I can’t wear necklaces/bracelets when I am hot as they irritate me!

A: My cat eye sunglasses – I never leave the house without them!

8. Favourite summer fragrance/perfume?
C: CKIN2U

A: Honey by Marc Jacobs

9. Summer book you’re loving?
C: I’m currently reading “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. What is more Summery than love?!

A: I read The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion whilst I was on holiday – it’s such a good read!

10. What are you most excited to do this summer?
Summer is almost over but we had a pretty fun time – we spent a weekend glamping (see the post here) and we are off to the #bloggersfest next week (ahhhhhhhh!). But we are also really excited about Winter, the woolly tights and knitted jumpers in particular. We have both been knitting over the last few weeks, with lessons from Annie’s mum so we will show you our progress soon!

We would like to tag An English Rose from Manchester, Jasmin Charlotte Lifestyle and milliemakeup Have fun girls! #twolittleowls

Guest Post anyone?

A & C: hope you’re having a lovely Saturday! We just thought we would put a question out there, asking you all if anyone would like to help us out with a guest post? Annie is off on her holiday next week for two weeks and as you followers will know, we post everyday – which is a lot of work for one person, so would anybody like to help Chloe out? We would love to hear from you! #twolittleowls

Bedside Table Essentials: Annie

20140407-185727.jpg
A: so today you can have an insight into what my bedtime cabinet essentials are, those things that you just can’t put in the draw because you use them so much.
I am a firm believer in pretty lamps. My boyfriend and I haven’t finished decorating our house yet (it’s costs so much and takes up so much time!) so I have resorted to accessorising all of our rooms with way too much clutter and lovely things, including lamps. I love this one on my bedside cabinet because it’s so sparkly. I also have candles everywhere, and often light them on my cabinet when I’m in bed reading because they are so relaxing.
My kindle is never far from me (and neither are my glasses so I can read without feeling like an old lady) and there’s usually a cup of fruit tea somewhere in my vicinity.

20140407-190215.jpg
I have a ridiculous obsession with jewellery and have way too much in my life, I use this little teacup (which I bought from Florence’s last tour!) to keep all of the jewellery I wear a lot in, as you can see, I wear a lot of jewellery a lot of the time…

20140407-190552.jpg
Lastly, my moisturisers of the moment. These change on a regular basis but at the minute, my favourites are these: Clinique dramatically different my Marc Jacobs Daisy – smells beautiful!!

What’s in Annie’s handbag?

A: I love these posts (mainly because I’m incredibly nosey) so I thought I would let you all have a nose in my handbag too!

20140328-184546.jpg

Admittedly, I’m am probably the most unorganised person in the world.

Literally nothing in my life is tidy, there’s always pens and random receipts in my handbag and I never keep my make up in make up case, it all just rattles around together! I don’t carry all my make up with me, but I always have my Bare Minerals mineral veil and flawless face brush, these are perfect if you need to get rid of some of the sneaky shine that appears from nowhere! I also have the sample size of my Porefessional with me because it’s perfect for touch ups. I’ve got my Model Co lipstick with me today, this is a staple in my bag, but if I’m wearing a different lipstick I’ll carry that too. I always have a blusher too – one with a mirror!! This Elf one is perfect. My tangle teezer is a must for my unruly mop and this Molton Brown Rose and Rhubarb hand lotion is my new favourite thing (it was in my Birchbox this month and it smells amazing!!!) Other than my trust purse, keys and kindle combo that’s my handbag summed up!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

C & A: If you’re anything like us, you will want to treat your mum to something really special on Mother’s Day – and with it fast approcahing us on 30th March this year, we thought we would show you some lovely ideas for gifts. We’ve tried to include ideas from a wide price range, have a look and let us know which is your favourite!

Image

Firstly, we have decided to include one of our favourite books – Mary Berry’s Autobiogrpahy, we reviewed this a while a go (find it here). This is available on Amazon from £9.00 – a bargian for such a lovely present.

Image

Marc Jacobs have brought out a lovely new perfume just in time for Mother’s Day, Annie tested this last week and loved it – it has a lovely spring scent, flowery and pretty but fresh too. It can be found at Boots for £48.00.

The ‘Just Call Me’ tea towel is perfect because you can personalise to which ever famous chef suits your Mum the most! A unique gift for just £10, available here from notonthehighstreet.com

The ‘Mother Hen’ necklace by Amanda Coleman is so pretty – it can be ordered in either silver or gold and is also available from notonthehighstreet.com from £40, find it here.

Image

We had to include these because they are beautiful. They are made by The Cake Lady who is based in Boston, Lincolnshire. She is selling these handmade goodies as special Mother’s Day packages – sadly she can only take orders for collection, but her shop is well worth a visit if you’re in the area. Take a look at her Facebook page in the link to see some more of her baked treats, and have a look around your local area for unique Mother’s Day gifts like Rebecca offers – you might find something as exciting as this!

What Mother’s Day gift ideas do you have? We’d love to know! #twolittleowls
