Summer cannot come soon enough this year… Exams are looming just around the corner and with this sudden burst of sunshine in the UK, I am in desperate need of some relaxation and cocktail luvin’… Which leads me nicely onto >this< recipe I found, perfect for any elderflower lover. We actually switched it up a tiny bit so if you wanna use the original recipe that we based ours off then click the link above, if not – enjoy!!
What you’ll need:
- Elderflower Cordial.
- Lemon Sorbet.
- First of all you need to garnish the glass with sugar and raspberries.
- Put one scoop of lemon sorbet in each glass.
- Pour in a shot of gin.
- Add in a splash of elderflower – The amount you put in can depend on how strong you like your elderflower flavour, typically I’d put in just over (if not double) what I’d usually have with water.
- Fill the rest of the glass up with Prosecco and voila!!
Over the last few months I’ve discovered a real love for pinky-toned eyeshadows, I’m constantly on the look out for more and I when I spotted this lil’ beauty I couldn’t resist not adding it to the collection…
This eyeshadow consists of everything you could ever dream an eyeshadow to be(!!) First of all, its weird cream/powder hybrid texture means that it’s suuuuuuuuper quick and easy to apply – which is great if (like me) you’re in a rush to get ready most mornings but wanna make it look like you’ve at least made a lil’ bit of effort with your makeup. The powder aspect of it means that it’s megaaaaaaaa long lasting and doesn’t smudge or melt off ya eyes during the day like a lot of eyeshadows do.
Last but certainly not least…The most important factor when picking an eyeshadow – The glitter factor. This is by far my fave thing about this collection of (and all) eyeshadows, they’re all ultra glittery pigments meaning that your eyes can sparkle to your hearts content… What more could a girl want?
It’s finally (!!!) starting to feel like spring so of course I had to update my wardrobe and make a few cheeky lil’ orders online. The first of which is this jumpsuit that I’ve been eyeing up on ASOS for months (!!) now, impatiently waiting for it to come back into stock.
If you’ve read my OOTD post back in December then you will know just how OBSESSED I was (kinda still am) with my New Look jumpsuit. Any chance I got I would be wearing it, I might as well of slept in it – BUT now that summer is slowly approaching I feel as though I need a more “summery” alternative, and this ticks alllllllll the right boxes.
First of all, it feels sooooo light and comfy – perfect for a warm summers day. Not only this, but is super flattering too. This is the kinda jumpsuit that you can just throw on with a denim jacket, some tan sandals and sunnies and just have an instantly cute outfit. The only downside to this jumpsuit (and definitely something to bare in mind) is that it’s quite a sheer material and therefor you have to be – let’s say – slightly cautious with your underwear choice (lol).
It can’t be denied that my absolute FAVE thing about this jumpsuit is the beautiful embroidery at the bottom, the stitching looks so pretty and delicate – I love it(!!). What I really like about it though is the little –pop– of colour that the red flowers add to it, making it that little bit more interesting that most of my other go-to pieces in my wardrobe.
