This Easter, The all time favourite Pattern!

Easter Special! 

Hello my vintage lovelies, Hope you have enjoyed your Easter Holidays so far! So what are the must haves this Easter? 

The current pattern that is basically everywhere, is checkered and gingham. I love this pattern , it is simple, sweet, cute and affective. Checkered and gingham has taken over the fashion world, you can find it in lots of different styles of tops, shirts, skirts and Trousers. There are many outfits completely based on the gorgeous patterns! 

One of the reasons I love this pattern is it is an old time classic! This pattern has been a favourite to many people in the past. Including some vintage stars!
Marilyn Monroe rocked this pattern in many different styles!

And Judy Garland

And a touch of Audrey Hepburn

What I found amazing is how today you see people wearing things similar to the clothing above! And it makes me think, do these people know they are rocking a look from some vintage idols!

For me this pattern is totally the Easter look! Lets find some treasures that you can buy for yourself as a special Easter Treat!

March Favourites!

March Favourites!
Hello lovelies! Today I've decided to do a March favourites, even if its the 10th of April (Shhh!) Most of them are beauty products, but I have included some non-beauty favourites also. So lets get right into it.

My favourite nail varnish in March, which I have been wearing to death, has been "Skinny Dip"by Rimmel London. It is part of their "60 secondS" nails collection. The colour is a beautiful deep, rich blue. The colour comes out exactly as it looks in the bottle. It is also very quick to dry.It is also wonderful for the price, of only £3.65!

My favourite lipstick this month has been MAC's "Made to Order". The colour is a sort of "your-colour-but-better" except more pink. It gives a lovely, but natural looking shimmer and silky look. Its very moisturising, so I didn't have to use a base or other lip balm. It stays on for a very long time, and It may sound weird, but I love the smell of MAC lipsticks, tell me if you do too haha! The price is a little on the high side, at around £15.99, but its definitely worth the price. 

I've been loving the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser. Its light, but doesn't wear easily. It provides the perfect base for foundation, helping it to smoothly glide on,and stay on! Its worth the £17.00 for great skincare! I have only been using it for a few months but already I think it might be becoming one of my Holy Grail beauty products!!

Normally I wouldn't go for something this expensive, but I had heard a lot about this brush and wanted to treat myself. Priced around £32 it is not cheap, but the quality and the flawless application make the price worth it. It blends wonderfully, meaning no horrid streak marks. Its super soft and gentle on your face, and makes the task of applying foundation so much quicker. This definitely a product to spoil yourself with! 

I really wanted a dark colour to wear in March, but wanted one that was easily wear-able or blend-able to make it look more subtle. I found exactly what I wanted with this "Exaggerate Lipliner" from Maxfactor. I got it in the colour, Obsession, and have been completely and utterly obsessed with it! The colour is a beautifully dark berry shade, that can be made lighter, darker or glossier with any other product. I've found that it is super versatile and easy to wear. The lipliner is creamy and not too drying. I can't remember the exact price, but I know that it was not more than £5! 

My favourite candle this month has been "Salted Caramel" by  Yankee Candle (If you follow me on Instagram you should know that!! @Allie_Bradley1) It smells absolutely delicious. It is a very strong scent, meaning you don't have to burn it as often. Its almost good enough to eat! I got the medium sized candle, which is around £16.99

I bought a gorgeous bag this month, which I have been absolutely obsessed with. For the price of £30, I got this gorgeous white bag from River Island. It looks small, but is big enough to fit everything I would need on an ordinary day. You can carry it or have it on your shoulder with the shoulder strap. It has three sections to it, to which have zips, and the middle section has a pop-openy thing (not sure what its called). The pockets are all very roomy, even if they look small. Its the perfect bag to complete any outfit! 
I could only find it online in Light Pink, but it is available in White in store I think!

The songs I have been loving this month are "Hey Brother" by Avicii and "Do I wanna know" by the Arctic Monkeys. I've also been listening to the Frozen soundtrack like craazy!

I've been adoring the Lipton ice tea's! My favourite flavor is the Peach. Its so delicious and fresh, and makes you feel totally replenished and refreshed. The lemon one is also very yummy. 

Thankyou for reading guys! What are your monthly favourites? I would love to know.
 Have a nice day!
