It was my birthday on Sunday and I got a Leighton Denny gift set from my mum and I've been desperate to try out some colours. I opted for this gorgeous pink colour, in natural light it is very bright pink but in duller light it is more natural.

Do you like this colour? Have you tried this shade yourself? Tweet me your photos @hausof_lola

Latest Celeb Nail Manis

Vanessa White

I love this manicure that Vanessa White (The Saturdays) was seen sporting last week. Cos we are now in April what better excuse do you have to brighten your talons up than by having a coral inspired manicure. Coral looks great alongside tanned skin & dark hair!

This design is very easy to re-create yourself, so long as you have a steady hand. Make sure you apply a base coat first so you don't stain your nails orange!!

Secondly apply 2 coats of Coral Orange Nail Polish. The Polish to the left from Max Factor is a great choice and only £3.99 from Superdrug.

Thirdly - Apply a top coat to protect from chipping

Fourthly - Apply diamantes to as many nails as you like.

Jessie J

I #lovelovelove this manicure as sported by Jessie J!! Bang on trend with pastel colours!! These fab nails were done by @jennynails

I'm gonna try and re-create this look myself so keep checking back.

Teen Spirit

If you mention the 90s to me I think of The Spice Girls, Sports Wear, Denim and erm... Steps. Fast forward to 2014 and there's been a revival of 90s fashion. Think long line knits, patchwork denim & sports wear. When worn alongside structured pieces you can for sure be rocking the 90s revival trend. Also why not go all out and wear alongside day after hair.

Check out some of my fave pieces below that I've come across whilst browsing the web. Whilst I am in a 90s mood why not check out this playlist from the 90s #FLASHBACK

The Spring Bag Edit

I don't know what it is about spring time, but the brighter, sunnier and hopefully dryer weather seems to persuade me to go out and spend my hard earnt pennies on new bits & pieces for my wardrobe.

Bags make a fantastic accessory whether you are looking for a modern mini or a hoarder style bag. I tend to opt towards larger bags as I usually carry around with me  my purse, phone, iPad, make-up bag, umbrella etc so the bigger the better.

Below you can check out my fave items from my Spring Bag Edit on my Pinterest. Are you following me there? Check out my page here.

All bags featured are from High Street Retailers.
