I actually wore this exact outfit for my 22nd birthday night out as you can see in the photo below and I loved it so much that I thought I'd turn it into style post for you all. I was looking for something a bit different for my birthday this year and a outfit that I would be able to wear again. I spotted this beauty in Topshop when shopping on Oxford Street a few weeks ago and I absolutely loved it. I originally had my eye on the white version but I'm so glad I found this one as I think it's much nicer. The only issue with it is is that the sizing is a bit off. I spoke to a friend over the weekend who has the playsuit and she said she also struggled with getting the right fit, and had to try on a few different sizes. So If you're able to get your hands on it in store, (which might be a struggle as I know it's been very popular) I'd definitely try a few sizes on until you get the perfect fit!

I've recently started an internship at a PR company, which is completely new to me as I've actually got a degree in photography and have no experience in PR. I'm learning something everyday and it's really nice to be involved with a whole new indsutry. I'm thinking of doing a blog post about my experience as the one I wrote about university went down pretty well. If you haven't see it already you can view it HERE

Summer time.

daisy kent iamdaisyalice french connection dress bloggers
As I'm writing this blog post, it's feeling extremely hot in London, but by the time you're reading this it's probably raining (typical English weather.) The weather meant it was the perfect day for me to wear this embroidered  French Connection dress. Originally retailing at £130, although it is now in the sale for £65. I thought the original and sale price tag was pretty expensive for a summer dress. However since receiving the dress it feels so soft as it's made from Linen and cotton. The quality and cut of this dress is so much better than something from New Look or Miss Selfridge. Although I do love  both of those stores for a good bargain, don't get me wrong. I wore it with my wedges from Office and my Longchamp backpack. I feel this outfit would be perfect for a picnic, BBQ or a garden party.

Get the look: Kylie Jenner

I haven't done a beauty post for ages so I really hope you like this one! One of the most talked about make up looks and people this year has been Kylie Jenner and her ever growing lips. Surgery or not I really love the full 1990's nude lip inspiration behind this look. So I thought I would show you how to achieve this using two of her rumoured MAC products. I've chosen to use MAC lipstick in Pink Plaid and lip liner in Whirl. You can use other brands if you already have similar colours in your make up bag. Just make sure that your pick brown based nude/pink lip colours. (I've also popped a few other options in the widget at the end of the post.)

To achieve this look you will need to:

  1. Use a concealer or high coverage foundation to conceal the natural pigmentation of  your lips.
  2. Line your lips with the lip liner. Kylie's have been dramatically over drawn to achieve a fuller lip effect.
  3. Apply your lipstick and blend with your finger or a lip brush so there is more of a natural blend between the two products.
  4. Kylie's lips have a matte finish so to achieve this use a translucent matte powder, such as Rimmel London stay matte. You can also apply a clear gloss to enhance the fuller look.

London in the sun.

daisy kent blue in love with fashion dress topshop

So this time last week it was my birthday! I had a lovely day spent with my family, and in the evening I went out with a big group of girls who I've been friends with since high school. I had such a lovely day and it's definitely up there as one of my favourite birthdays. As one of my presents I was lucky enough to get these Office wedges which I am a little bit obsessed with. They're so comfortable! The style and colour means that they'll go with practically any outfit I'll wear this summer, so expect to see these a lot in my future blog posts! If you like this look you can shop this outfit in the widget below.

Yesterday I met a friend of mine in Islington for a catch up over dinner and drinks, as it was still so warm we sat outside and made the most of happy hour. We stopped off at Cabana, a Brazilian restaurant/bar. It had the most amazing interior filled with bright summery colours and fairy lights, a Pinterest dream. To accompany our Passion fruit and strawberry caipirinha's we filled our stomachs with cheesy dough balls and garlic butter, tortilla chips and guacamole and the portobello beirut flatbread. All of which were amazing, I'd never heard of this place and I'll definitely be going back again. As a vegetarian there were so many options of things to choose from which always makes a restaurant rank higher in my books, more places need to be like this! As the happy hour finished we wondered over to Wenlock and Essex, a circus themed bar for one more drink.
