A slightly summery outfit of the day!

Hi ladies,

I thought I would share an outfit of the day with you, this is from a couple of days ago when I went shopping for a few last minute holiday bits and there was a little bit of sunshine (hurray!)

Dress - New look
Blazer - Primark
Shoes - Primark
Belt - Primark
Bag - Michael Kors
Sunglasses - Ray Bans (Boyfriends!)

I love this dress from new look. It is actually a midi dress but on my 5ft 2'' self it looks like more of a maxi. It is a lovely soft cotton, really comfortable and easy to wear. Apologies for my hair in this picture, it was in desperate need of a cut and re style which I thankfully had done this morning!

I am heading away for 2 weeks of sun, sea and sand in a few days, and I cannot wait! let me know if you would like me to do more OOTD posts :)

Have a fantastic week!

My Bobby Pin Tin! :)

Hi Ladies,

I don't know about you but I am forever buying bobby pins and can never seem to keep them in the same place. I try to keep them on the bits of cardboard that they come on but that never lasts, I once bought some which came in a tube which I had every intention of refilling but that never happened either. Little did I know, all I needed to keep my bobby pins in order was a super cute tin from Cath Kidston!

I spotted this whilst I was browsing the Cath Kidston sale and as soon as I saw it I thought it would be perfect for my bobby pins. They also have it in red and I think it was around £3.00. This tin is not actually meant for bobby pins, it was in the sewing section and is for the pins which go in your sewing box. It actually came with a set of pins inside which I swiftly gave to my mum for her sewing kit and I then trawled my room finding bobby pins in the most random of places and started filling my tin up! :)

I'm so chuffed with this. I have been keeping it in my handbag and every time I find a bobby pin somewhere I actually enjoy putting it back in this little tin!

Have a lovely week :)

New Shoes! :)

Hi Ladies,

Over the past month or so I have bought not one, not two but three new pairs of shoes which I thought I would share with you :) I'm don't usually buy shoes that often, and I tend to spend a bit more money on shoes which I know will last me a long time (I have two trusty pairs of heels both from Kurt Geiger which I absolutely treasure they have lasted me 4 years and counting!) but I fancied some new shoes for my summer holiday and who can resist a bargain?!

So the first pair are these bright turquoise jelly style flats from KG. They had these in a coral colour too and they were reduced from £25 to £9. When I tried them on they were so comfy that I just couldn't resist them! I love how bright and summery they are and I think they'll look great with jeans and shorts.

I don't really like to take heels on holiday, I prefer to take a few fancy pairs of flips flops but this year I was on the look out for a versatile pair of wedges with what a would like to call a sensible heel! I found just what I was looking for in debenhams a few weeks ago.

These were £20 and are from a range called good for the sole. They are so comfortable on will hopefully go with most things I am taking on holiday, I am really pleased with these I only wish they did them in a neutral/beige colour so I could get those too!

And finally I picked up these sparkly flats from ALDO

These were the most expensive of my new shoes at £30 and they're also currently the most uncomfortable (definitely need a bit of wearing in but hopefully they'll be fine!). I wanted some fancy flats to save for best for those times when I'm going out with friends for a meal or drinks and I don't really want to wear heels but don't want to wear my day to day shoes either. I love the detail on these, they remind me of a style Kurt Geiger had in a few years ago which I lusted after every time I went into the shop but could never bring myself to purchase! They are a soft suede style material and the detail on the toes is so lovely, I can't wait to wear them!

and that's everything! have you bought any new shoes recently?

Hope you have a fantastic week!

Hello There!


 So after a longer than planned hiatus, daisybeebeauty is back! :)

I am so sorry for my lack of posts over the last (eek) 5 months. But I am so excited to get back into blogging and share with you some of my favourite new products and I'm hoping to start back up with some fashion/outfit posts for our lovely typically British summer! I may also include some gluten free favourites/baking posts if that is something anyone might find helpful :)
