Warehouse Shoot: Postcards from Shoreditch

Hey Lovelies,

How warm is it today?! I am slightly melting but enjoying the warmer weather. Last month I was contacted by Warehouse to see if I was interested in picking an outfit and taking part in a photoshoot for their social networking platforms. I think you all know by now how uncool I am so after letting out a squeal and wearing a huge cheesy grin I happily accepted! I will admit I was pretty nervous about A) someone else taking my photo who I am not able to boss about slightly and B) picking an outfit deemed 'cool' enough to be on their social networking pages! I was worried people would expect something really edgy as I am a fashion blogger and lets be honest ladies I am the furthest thing from edgy! 

After eyeing up a lot of the lovely pieces in Warehouse at the moment and trying on a fair few I instantly fell in love with this jacket (in store not online) and knew it was 'the one.' You know when you love a piece so much you mentally pair it with everything in your wardrobe? Yep that is what has happened with this little number don't you think it will look great with a LBD and some neon accessories! The photographer and girls were so lovely and made me feel completely at eased, it felt more like hanging out with friends than getting a job done! I am really pleased with the photos and personally love this outfit so much! What do you think of the outfit? If any of you ladies are on the market for a new pair of jeans and usually wear the topshop leigh jeans you NEED to put them down and try these. Finally after many years of sucking in and squeezing into various jeans I have found a pair that are comfortable around the waist, the right length for my short legs (goodbye roll ups) and stretchy enough that they will give a bit after a meal. I can not praise these jeans enough, I can't believe they are not raved about more the even better bit is I comfortably got into a size 8 pair oh yeaaah ;) haha!!

Currently gracing my nails...

I'm not sure about you but when I need a little pick me up I always seem to end up with a new nail polish, which is exactly what happened to me last month. While browsing Boots this polish caught my eye and before I knew it I had checked out and was on my merry way. The polish in question is the one above called Maximillian Strasse which is from Essie's spring collection. Straight away I was worried that it was going to be very similar to Essie Absolutely Shore which I love but find a bit too pale and 'bright' for every day wear. 

Luckily this colour is much more a muted pale sage green colour with very strong grey undertones. This is the sort of pastel shade which can be worn as a edgy neutral colour, it is very surprising how much it goes with! Application wise as the formula is thick you could get away with one coat, but out of habit I always use two coats which just makes the colour more opaque. I personally love this colour it is exactly what I have wanted for my 9-5 summer days, and honestly can you have too many mint shades in your collection?! 

Have any of you got this colour? What is your favourite day to day nail polish?

P.s I see the GFC panic is back and if any of you GFC followers like my blog enough I would love it if you followed me on bloglovin so you don't miss out on any of my rambles :)

Where have I been?

Maholla Lovelies!

Some of you may or may not be aware that over the month of May I had a lot going on personally and decided to take a step back from blogging. As well as turning 21 and dragging the celebrations out for the whole month ( I swear I'm not a Diva) I also took some time to reflect on who I was becoming and where I wanted to go in life. Deep stuff I know. I won't go into it too much as I am sure no one wants to feel down when reading a blog but I have felt for the last few months I had become very materialistic and I was no longer humble, which are two traits I never want to have in myself. However fear not after a few personal changes I feel I am back to my old self. For the first time in a long time I feel really happy and content with life, I have a plan and I intend to stick to it. I do appreciate that I am writing this under a photograph of a new Prada purse and Tiffany necklace but those were both surprises for my 21st which I will treasure forever and am completely ecstatic with. 

In my absence I have been updating my Instagram a lot so if you fancy seeing what I have been up to I would love it if you followed me, my name is elliemaydoll. As always please leave your Instagram names below I love finding new people to follow and new wardrobes to drool over!! I feel I have my blogging mojo back and I have a lot of posts lined up- June is looking like an exciting month! 

P.s My Mum made this cake for my 21st and it was delicious! I was completely shocked she made this cake as quite frankly I didn't think she had it in her haha (sorry Mum.) Only problem is that I now can't blame her for my useless baking skills!
