A New Bag For Summer & An OOTD

Top | Jeans | Shoes (similar) | Bag - Givenchy Lucrezia

I want to introduce you to my new bag! I wanted a bright bag in time for summer, which I know isn't everyone's cup of tea but as my wardrobe is mostly monochrome it's nice to add a bit of colour with accessories.

Electric blue has always been one of my favourite colours and I've also had my eye on the Givenchy Lucrezia for a long time; it looks small but is actually deceivingly spacious making it a great everyday bag. It can be both smartened up and dressed down and the craftsmanship is amazing; I love the reinforced corners and the chunky zip. It's also Kendall Jenner's favourite bag and she is just such a babe!

I bought it in blue with the intention of wearing it with all-white outfits in the summer - ripped white denim cut-offs with a sheer blouse or a slouchy V-neck tee. But on this morning it was a little gloomy outside so I went for my usual uniform of head-to-toe black, and it was quite nice to have a pop of colour!

I'm also in love with this lace top I bought from Zara. Their collection is amazing at the moment!

Also I'm happy you liked my 'Week in Pictures' post, I'll definitely make it a permanent fixture on the blog as I really enjoyed compiling it too.

I hope you have a lovely evening,

Week In Pictures: GIVEAWAY, ZARA Haul, Pancakes & Chelsea In Bloom

Today I thought I'd do a bit of a different post and let you know what I've been up to lately!

1. My first giveaway

I'm hosting a giveaway over on my YouTube channel! The winner will receive a TheBalm NudeTude Eyeshadow Palette and a couple of products from the new Zoella Sweet Inspirations collection - watch this video to find out how to enter!

2. My ZARA obsession

You may have seen I also recently uploaded a pretty big ZARA haul over on my YT channel - and I'm still totally addicted to browsing their New In section! This is one of the tops I picked up, I've been wearing it non-stop, I love the cold shoulder design.

3. The most delicious pancakes

We visited one of my favourite restaurants in London; My Old Dutch. It's a pancake house and the menu is packed with a mix of both savoury and sweet options. It's always hard to choose but this time I went for a crepe with berries and vanilla ice cream. Just looking at these photos is making me crave another one!

4. Chelsea in Bloom

Every year boutiques in Chelsea put on beautiful flower displays and events to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show. This year, one of my favourite little cake shops Peggy Porschen dressed up with a flower archway, while The White Company had a baby elephant peeking out from their window! I also loved Liz Earle who created a breathtaking carousel and served the most delicious healthy juices.

I actually vlogged our day at Chelsea In Bloom - watch it here!

I hope you're having an amazing weekend! What have you been up to recently?
