Excited for SPRING♥

Hello darlings!!!♥

How have you all been?! Hope you have had a wonderful week so far!! I felt SO OVERWHELMED with everything at the beginning of the week .. I feel like I have SO much going on.. and just not enough time to do it all!! HOWEVER.. that is where my trusty little diary came in handy .. it helped me SO much in just organizing my life! I LOVE IT.. if you don’t already have one.. GET ONE!

So… I am literally SO SO EXCITED for this post. Now.. if you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know I am one of the (VERY) few people who actually doesn’t mind winter. I LOVE snow, cosy, dark evenings, the fashion AND the make-up. However… I think I am getting SLIGHTLY bored of all the wintery-ness, and JUST WANT IT TO BE SPRING!! I mean COME ONE LOVES… lighter evenings, warmer afternoons, leaves/flowers growing back again, baby animals being born (yes, this is cheesy I know BUT I LOVE ANIMALS!), and not forgetting EASTER IS EARLY THIS YEAR!! So what does that mean? LOTS of chocolate and FOUR DAY WEEKENDS WOOP!

Right .. are we all feeling slightly exciting for Spring? I know I am!! Lets have a look and see what I am MOST excited for!!

Spring Fashion♥

I LOVE winter fashion SO much .. BUT I have been seeing all the spring clothes in the shops .. and all I see is PASTELS AND FLORALS EVERYWHERE! You will all know I am such a massive lover of wearing black, however there is just something SO special about wearing florals/pastels!! Have a peek below for some examples of my PERFECT outfits for spring time!

Both of these were actually inspired by the STUNNING bag* I received from LYDC London.. this company just seem to have a bag for every single moment in my life. I LOVE them so much!! Make sure to check them out if you are ever on the hunt for a bag.. they have their new Spring/Summer range out … and it is AMAZING! If you fancy an extra 10% off, you can use my code “SAIRA10”. I would also LOVE to know if you check them out .. so make sure to comment and let me know angels!

Denim & Pastel Jumpers – PERFECT for Daytime♥

Jumper and GiletMore Detail Jumper and Gilet

Oh.. well would you look at that lovelies .. I am still layering in Spring (haha!). If you live in the UK, you will know that we still get chilly days… so layering is pretty essential! I actually picked up both the denim gilet and jumper from a CHARITY SHOP (want some Charity Shop shopping tips?.. I have a whole post on it HERE!). This outfit would be SO perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring.. it would keep you SO cosy, yet still have a touch of spring with the denim and pastel colours. The bag just does a perfect job in completing the outfit and making it SPRING TIME READY WOO!

Lace & LOTS OF RINGS – PERFECT for Evening♥

Another Image of DressClose Up

I have been wanting to style this cream dress from H&M for the LONGEST time ever.. but didn’t think it would look right during the colder months .. it just has SUCH a Spring vibe to it.. don’t you think? It would be PERFECT for an evening out.. I would personally accessorize with a LOT of rings (all my rings are quite old and from VARIOUS PLACES!), a bright nail polish and the BEAUTIFUL bag! I think lace always looks so gorgeous during the warmer months – I also find myself going for a more “bohemian” style .. so dresses like this with plenty of rings and cross body bags are PERFECT for me!

LADY OF THE RINGS♥

RingsMore Rings

I don’t know if I am the only one who avoids jewelry in winter .. I think because it is SO cold my hands are covered all the time anyway (haha!). In Spring/Summer.. I LOVE to wear as many rings as possible ..  I think they add such a lovely, bohemian, girly look to an outfit! I am definitely excited to start wearing them again! Be prepared to see them in my OOTD posts loves!

Fruity Perfumes & Bright Nails♥

Now..  I never used to be the type of girl who swapped her perfumes round based on the seasons. HOWEVER… I have recently started too!!! I LOVE more fruitier, fresh scents for Spring time, whereas I leave sweeter, more stronger scents for winter time. SO .. I have been LOVING Juicy Couture’s “Viva La Juicy” recently.. I mean just LOOK at the bottle angels!! The notes include berries, mandarins, honey suckle and gardenia .. sounds perfect for this time of year right loves!! The bottle is SURE to brighten up ANYONE’S day too!

Perfume and Nail Polish.jpg

Ohhh … bright nail polish!! Again … I LOVE bright nails for Spring … for exactly the same reason I love wearing rings.. Our hands are on show more and not wrapped up in gloves/long sleeves hehe!! Barry M have some FABULOUS colours.. and they are SO affordable! I HIGHLY recommend them lovelies.. you will ADORE them!! OH.. and nothing beats nude nails … I LOVE these at any time of the year!

Pink Lips♥

Bright Lipsticks

Well… if you guys know me .. you will know that I recently braved dark lipsticks – and was absolutely OBSESSED with them during winter… but I am not sure how “fitting” they will be for Spring! So.. it is time to bring out the GORGEOUS pale pinks, nudes AND hot pinks!! Wooo… my FAVE nudey-pink is Mac Creme Cup .. I LOVE the formula too .. it is SO creamy and moisturizing! I also LOVE the Maybelline Baby Lips – they feel SO AMAZING on the lips .. and JUST LOOK HOW ADORABLE THE PACKAGING IS! My other fave lipsticks include Rimmel’s Pink Blush & Bourjois Rouge Edition Fushcia.

Lipsticks

So angels .. there we have a few things that have got me SO EXCITED FOR SPRING! I think I am just so looking forward to having MORE daylight! Not to mention how much more COLOURFUL everything is!

Should we have a quick overview of what there is to look forward to loves?

  • Lighter mornings/evenings
  • MORE light = more time to take blog photos!
  • Everything just comes ALIVE again (ha!) – trees/flowers/plants!
  • SPRING FASHION – I don’t have to say ANYMORE!
  • SO MANY Bank holidays!
  • It becomes acceptable to have milkshakes/slushies instead of hot chocolate. Ohh… not forgetting ice-cream too 😛
  • NO MORE DE-ICING THE CAR
  • Easter – the BEST excuse to eat LOTS OF CHOCOLATE! 
  • SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!

I CANNOT WAIT FOR SPRING LOVES! What is your fave season? Make sure to let me know!

Cannot WAIT for my next few posts.. I have SO much lined up… I just need MORE time hehe!! I hope you liked this post darlings .. and it helped to get rid of your winter blues and HAS YOU EXCITED FOR SPRING TIME! YAY!! See you in my next post loves!

Lots of Love,

Kittens & Coconut Lane

Hi Angels!

HOW ARE YOU ALL! I am very very excited as I write up this post because MY NEW CAR HAS ARRIVED! I am so excited to drive it! I actually worked from home as I wasn’t given a time for the car to come – all the information I was given is that the driver would call when he was an hour away – which was fine :). It arrived at about 2PM, and I am in LOVE with it! No doubt I will feature it in a blog post later loves 🙂

Anyway.. I have another outfit post for you WOOP .. and very exciting feature further down! Now I took these photos on Saturday, when the rain and wind were HORRIFIC! I am not sure if you will be able to tell from the pictures ha! I think I JUST got done in time, as after I went inside the rain REALLY started to fall… and it has been the same the whole weekend! The weather in the UK recently has just been awful, and it is meant to be carrying on like this too (boo!).. can it not just snow already?

So.. lets see my outfit posts from the weekend!

Guys…my shirt has kittens on it … KITTENS! If you know me you will know the OBSESSION I have with cats/kittens. I ADORE them, and to have an over-sized top with kittens on is all it takes to make Saira happy with her outfit :).

I paired the top with a knitted, over-sized (again I know) cardigan, which I picked up from a market for £5(!!!!). I have so many cardigans like this in this style.. I think they add so much to an outfit rather than just a plain one. Also, I wore my knitted midi skirts from Primark which I featured in a previous haul post… They never seem to leave the lower half of my body (pahaha).. I am OBSESSED! Another thing that never leaves my feet are my trusty Primark boots… I have no idea where I would be without them! I also wore the same hijab featured in the previous post… I love the style of it and it is such a nice change to having a plain hijab!

Yes guys.. I am also still rocking dark lips …and LOVING them. The combination is my trusty Rimmel 107 and Makeup Revolution 100% Vamp…I love the finish it gives and it is very long lasting!

Now all the funny marks on this picture is actually the rain! I think this is where it started to get very bad and I decided that it was time to go in. Bless my dad for taking these pictures for me though… It was chucking it down and I made him take LOTS of pictures (Sorry!!), but they came out pretty well considering the circumstances, especially towards the end!

Anyway … on to something else. LOOK AT MY ADORABLE PHONE CASE! I got this case from the lovely Charlotte at Coconut Lane*. Coconut Lane is an online, independent company that sells phone cases, house decor, jewelry and other cute little bits and pieces! I love how they refer to their peices as “SASSY”… which I must say they definitely are :P. The wall art is next on my shopping list :D.

But seriously guys … pineapples. Do I really need to say anymore? I used to have the most hideous case ever on my phone (one of those huge bulky cases that make your phone look like a brick, haha). This case feels really strong and not like cheap plastic at all, as I have had phone cases off eBay that get scratched and chipped within days. There is also one with FLAMINGOS, and one with UNICORNS.. it’s like they can read my mind. If there was one with kittens, I would have screamed (with excitement of course :D). SAM_2686

Can we also just take a moment to admire this sterling silver ring (also from Coconut Lane) which is in the shape of an arrow?! LOVE! I find it so cute and dainty .. it is adjustable so you can have it as a normal or midi ring. I am not the hugest jewelry wearer, but I love small, individual pieces like this. It also feels really strong and won’t bend out of shape easily (it took some effort to make it fit my tiny fingers ha!).

SAM_2677

I love both of these so so much … and Charlotte is also such an angel .. she is giving you a discount of 20%off ANYTHING from Coconut Lane using the code glitterglass20

Make sure you have a peek at Coconut Lane .. I got my items the day after, and they also ship worldwide! They have some adorable pieces and I am sure you will find something you love!

So… can you guys believe it is December?!!! I definitely can’t.. we have one month left in 2015 guys .. ONE MONTH!! I am so excited for the new year though … I cannot wait to see what is in store for me and my little blog! I think it has come SO FAR.. and I am so grateful for all the new followers I have! Thank you so so much for reading my blog.. you are all little babes!! Make sure you follow me on TWITTER so I can get to know you all and keep you up to date with what I am up to!

I will be posting some beauty/favourites posts up soon… Seeing as the weather has been HORRIFIC and I wasn’t able to take a second day’s outfit pictures 😦 (damn you horrible weather!!). I am also thinking of doing a gift guide/wish list too…what do you guys think? Let me know! I also have one festive post planned that I am excited and hope you guys like it! I think I also want to do a post on my favourite bloggers too .. even though there probably will be quite a lot of you. I just want to thank them for inspiring me and welcoming me to this community. I also want to say a special thank you to EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU that follows me. You really do make me smile every day and make me and my blog feel very special. You also keep me motivated to continue posting and make my blog better for you guys! YOU DA BEST 😀

Lots of Love,

Saira XO
