I've been really wanting to expand my tennis skirt collection for months now but I never seem to get around to it. Although I did purchase a black AA dupe on ebay and four months later it still hasn't arrived, I'm really annoyed as apparently they sent two because the first one got lost in the post. They still haven't refunded me, some ebayers are so irritating sigh. I did however find this really cute powder blue vintage tennis skirt on Betty Bones, at the time I didn't even realise that its actually a vintage Nike tennis skirt, I had to look at the label and I thought "whaaat Nike made super cute tennis skirts?? Yaaay!" I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing it a lot!

PINK BIKER JACKET: *STYLE MOI
VINTAGE PLATFORM BOOTS: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP
I saw these amazing flares on the Motel website the other day and was like ahhh I need them! I've been in two minds about flares recently, I've got a lot of pairs which I've collected over the past year but I'm still not sure if they suit me. I think fabric flares are more acceptable than jean flares at the moment and then gradually jean flares will work their way in there somehow. I have two pairs of Morgan jeans with the lace up front ready to go for when the Britney snake skin boot and full jean outfit look kicks back in aha!
I also bought this really cute top at the charity shop, I really love the shape but I'm not sure of how it looks on, but I like it, so I'm going to wear it anyway. I found a similar style also on Motel which now I also really want to get. I'm going to end up looking like a steps 1999 music video...
A while ago I was contacted by Tezenis, a well known brand in Italy! I was really excited to collaborate with them as I've heard great things from other bloggers in the past as I follow a lot of european bloggers from my Lookbook.nu days! #tezenisyoung is a new campaign run by Tezenis to promote their new range which appeals to the younger demographic, you can follow all the nine bloggers from various different countries chosen to represent #tezenisyoung by searching for the hashtag!
Personally, swimwear isn't something I ever think about much as I haven't been outside the UK in almost ten years, and even when I go to the beach in this country I rarely wear a swimsuit as its too cold, but I did decide to pick out my favourites Tezenis styles. Just y'know, sat there, visualising myself on an Italian beach next to the pretty blue water.. So I chose these blue bikinis as I really love the colour, I've always had an obsession with royal blue, I remember being at primary school and being really annoyed that our school didn't have royal blue uniforms. Well now I have a royal blue swimsuit, ha!
Something I noticed when my Tezenis parcel arrived was that everything is really well made, I always think this is something most stores overlook because no one really wears swimwear more than five times (in this country at least) usually, we go on holiday, take five swimsuits, and wear one each day, and then throw them away when you get home, so most stores don't really care about the quality of swimwear. These however feel super sturdy, which is reassuring having had many a bikini mishap in my time. They also fit really well, yay!
LES DÈLICES DE NINA (*sp)
On Saturday I was kindly invited to the Nina Ricci Candy House at Trafford Centre in Manchester for a day of nail painting and sherbet making, and also to try out the new perfume Les Délices de Nina! I had never been to the Trafford Centre before so I was a bit worried about finding the Candy House, but once I'd spotted it (it was quite easy due to it being bright pink!) I headed on over and everyone marvelled about the fact that I matched the stand haha.
I had already done my nails before going up to Manchester as I wanted them to be coordinated with the perfume, I didn't realise they were painting nails at the stand! So instead I took photo of another ladies nails! They were using Essie nail polish, which is a really fab nail polish brand, and the colours match the perfume so well!
As for the actual perfume, its probably one of my new favourites! I'm not just saying that because I went to the event, I do genuinely like very sweet smells! I do, (like most other women) have one or two other favourite perfumes, one is a very sophisticated fancy smell which makes you think of well dressed fashion week go-ers sipping champagne and the other smells like sugar coated strawberries. I think that Les Délices de Nina is a perfect mix of the two, so it suits me really well, its not sickly sweet and it has a more sophisticated smell, its like Candy for the career woman!
Theres also a Nina Ricci version of Candy Crush! Never before have I played the wonderful game known as Candy Crush, however earlier today I spent a full 45 minutes making those cute little sweets disappear, when really I should have been writing this post :/ oops! The app is really adorable and is called Les Délices de Nina, or I just searched Nina Ricci on the app store aha!
