Computer Meltdown

Well it looks like I'm having one of those months where nothing seems to go right with technology what so ever! Firstly my computer softwear that i use to edit all my Youtube viedos decided to stop working, so i brought a new piece of softwear and now it looks like my computer is COMPLETELY broken too. So if anyone from the Youtube community is wondering where the hell i am? Well its because my computer keeps freezing (in my eyes this means it is broken) and i am trying sooooo hard to get it up and running again ASAP!! I have made seven videos so far all edited, all good to go BUT i just can't convert them into a video file :S grrr!!! So looks like i need to save up for a computer and FAST!

Anyways rant done tick time for fashion rambles :)

So I picked up my copy of Glamour this month & there are LOADS of fab fashion ideas just floating around. When i pick up my copy here's one thing i ALWAYS do before reading any articles: I just look at the pictures! For me this is the only way i can draw out pieces that i like before reading the whole magazine.

Number one: OBVIOUSLY the front cover made me think of just one little thing SEX & THE CITY 2 OUT 28TH MAY!!!! AHHHH!!! 9 DAYS & COUNTING! SJP looks FABULOUS on the cover, whoever said a sequined jacket and glittery Louboutin's were too much? Looks mega casual with the ripped denim.

Number two Summer Scarfs: DO!

A great accessorie to wear between the transition of spring to summer & adds a splash of colour to a neutral outfit a la Kylie.

Number three: over half a million people in Britain only wash there sheets three times a year!!! That made me wanna be sick, yes i am a little bit OCD but THREE TIMES A YEAR! COME ON PEOPLE! ewwww!

Number Four: Olivia Palermo

Style Icon. I am very envious of her, i have not seen any picture of her where she does not look completely flawless in appearance. This is a girl who LOVES Topshop (huge tick) and is not afraid of mixing designer with high street when it comes to high profile events. "I've never used a stylist" she reveals- *gives evils* Love the mint coloured blazer- very on trend & the giant bow makes a huge statement as well as adding a masculine edge to it.

Number Five: Glee Cast

Man they scrub up well :) Love the outfits, Love the photography THUMBS UP!

Number Six: Feminine Dressing

On every page i turned on the fashion pages there was a strong sense of girlyness and feminine dressing. Lots of sheer fabric, pleating & frills. Bang on trend this summer THUMBS UP!

Much love,

April Adorings & April Showers ♥

So April has just ended & its now May which means only one thing...... SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY NEARLY HERE :)So I'm sitting here at my computer thinking what to write on my blog & I have decided to do an In's & Out's post titled: April Adorings & April Showers.

April Adorings:

1. Minimal Makeup.

Now that it's getting warmer I ALWAYS have the urge to wear minimal, natural makeup. For me its all about the bronzer, highlighter and gold tones, a la Lauren Conrad. Mixed with pink fresh rosy cheeks, it gives the healthy glow that I LOVE for the summer months. Benefit Dandelion Blusher & Benefit High Beam are the products I cannot live without this summer.
2. Lush "Comforter" Bubble Bar.

OH MY GOSHHHH!!!! I HAVE JUST DISCOVERED HEAVEN!! I brought this at the beginning of the month and lord its AMAZING! It's big enough to use in at lest 3 baths and turns the water a lush pink. Smells really summery with the blackcurrant smells, defiantly worth £3 and I've already brought my 3rd one. ADDICTED!

3. Nature Time.

The smell of freshly cut grass, different scents of flowers mingeling in the air, BBQ's, walking across fields, walking around in barefoot, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face, taking walks as the sun sets on warm evenings- this is what I love about the transition to summer.

4. Floral Dresses.

Yes it's a wardrobe staple for me, yes I have about 7 different floral dresses in my wardrobe, but it's my signature summer/spring look! It brings me back to my childhood of running around barefoot in a maxi floral dress every summer. Now I'm all grown up I can wear it in many different ways. A light weight cardie, blazer or leather jacket breaks up the look and can make it as casual or as smart as you want it. MUST HAVE FOR THIS SUMMER ♥

5. Dried Fruit & Nuts.

Ohhhh yes I have been on a major health kick this past month. Having given up chocolate and crisps for lent (not that i eat tones of it anyways) & replaced them with crispy soya beans and dried fruit and nut mix, I have not looked back and have carried on with this plan. Honestly it is a fab snack when your working and I do not feel hungry or that I need anything more after having it as a snack. Normally I have along side it a smoothie or an apple/carrot/strawberries/pear as a little snack in the afternoon and I feel a lot more fresh and healthy for it.

April Showers:

1. Thick, Chunky Cardigans.

It's on it's way to spring/summer and seeing people wearing thick knits in nice weather makes me sad :( embrace the warmth whilst we can!!

2. Takeaway Coffee/Tea/Iced Drinks.

Mega expensive! You can buy a whole pack of tea bags for how much it cost to buy a tea in well known coffee houses *coughs* Starbucks! Buy a thermas flask or a funky water bottle and make your own drinks! Believe me it's cheaper, better for you & sooo much fun :)

3. Thick Foundation.

It's getting warm guys so strip back to the tinted moisturiser or a lighter foundation to get a dewier summer complexion. Don't hide behind your winter face!!

4. Working on nice days.

They should make it against the law to go into work on a nice day and not see the light of day til after 7, when most of the nice day has disappeared!! Rawwrrr for working in retail!!

5. Mouths/Daddy long legs & Wasps.

Three insects I cannot stand during the nice months :( Wasps are attracted to my room and are everywhere I go. I literally run away screaming from them & unlike bee's have many lives so they can sting you loads of times and not die!!! Also mouths just flap around my lights all the time which is tres annoying! Same goes for Daddy long legs & I have a fear of swollowing one in my sleep HA!

That's all for now guys & enjoy the lovely weather even though it's not that nice for this bank holiday :( hopefully next bank holiday will be better :)

Much Love Elle xoxoxo
