leather and chain bracelet: marc by marc jacobs

nails: models own 'blueberry muffin'

I've been after a neon pink jumper for the past god knows how long but all the ones I came across seemed to be either cropped or really bad quality. I found this lightweight jumper in the TRF section of Zara and bought it in a size M so it was loose fitting and longer. It was priced at £45.99 which I think is really overpriced for what it is, but because it ticked all of the boxes I bit the bullet. I paired it with my ripped black Topshop jeans which are a recent purchase that haven't been featured on my blog yet. I cannot recommend a pair of jeans more, the stretch technology fabric really sucks you in and they are so comfortable. The fit is quite high-waisted so I plan to wear these with a cropped jumper or blouse when the weather warms up.

I purchased this Models Own 'Blueberry Muffin' polish last week and thought I'd give it a go while re-doing my nails last night. I love the colour, it's a really pastel blue with a touch of lavender which is one of my favourite colours at the moment. The scent isn't too strong and lasts a good few days, it doesn't smell that much like a blueberry muffin, more like those scented gel pens I had at school! I wasn't too impressed with the application, I found the polish to be quite 'gloopy' so it came out quite streaky. I added a topcoat to even out the overall finish and that helped to smooth it over. I wouldn't rush to buy another one, but I guess the scented idea is original and will appeal to a lot of younger people.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to any of you who have been bidding on my lovely Ebay dresses! All of the listings end on Sunday night around 7pm so if you haven't seen them yet you can either search my username 'lydiafayejones' or click here to view them.
