Itsatashathing: A look book with 'Leona'

Hi everyone,

I'm really excited to finally reveal my little project I have been working on.

A little while ago now I was contacted by a lovely brand called Boutique of Molly. I was quite shocked that at such an early stage of my blog would such a thing would happen. However, the opportunity did arise and I am very thankful to be reviewing the 'Leona' top (which can I say is beautiful).

Boutique of Molly or 'BOM' ( a lovely online store who offer a range of 'celebrity inspired trends' which really are 'luxury garments at low prices'. When you order something off of Boutique of Molly you can expect the best quality clothing and to arrive in a very pretty pink parcel.

I happened to be on holiday when this little pink parcel arrived at my door, but when I came back I was delighted to come home to such a lovely parcel. Inside the top was well packaged. It had a little cardboard insert covered in tissue paper for extra protection and the top was kept crease free during its travels.

Thankfully we had a really nice day so I was able to produce 3 different looks outside. So here is a picture of the top on the cut is just beautiful. The top has a lovely silk feel to it as well. It also has adjustable straps so you can adjust it so it's right for you. I'm going to find this top amazing to wear thought my pregnancy.

Look 1: Casual day.

Off to do the shopping or having friends round and want to feel comfortable? You can easily pair the Leona top with a pair of leggings.

Leggings: Jack Wills jackwills
Coat: Generation 915 at New Look (similar in adults section newlook)
Shoes: Miss KG kurtgeiger

Look 2: Summer chic.

Going on holiday or a day in the park? I chose to tuck the floral top into a pair of white high waisted shorts.

Shorts: Pull and bear pullandbear
Bracelet: Pandora (bracelet pandora, charm pandoracharms)
Shoes: Primark (similar at Mandm direct mandmdirect)

Look 3: From day to night.

The Leona top can even be worn to work. Just pop a fitted jacket on and leave untucked (or tuck it in) to a pencil skirt or some fitted trousers. Tuck in for a more 'night out' style. You could still wear a jacket just like I have on a night out. Wear heels or flats for comfort. (I'm wearing heels purely of illustrative purposes, I just stood and posed.)

Disco pants: H&M (Boohoo have a duplicate pair here: boohoo)
Jacket: Forever 21 (similar forever21)
Shoes: Miss KG (size 5 on ebay the shoes are called 'Geena')
Bracelet: Pandora (bracelet pandora, charm pandoracharms)

I hope you enjoyed my look book on the Leona top. Go check out Boutique of Molly's site for some amazing clothing! If you've already brought something from them show me in the comments below.

Itsatashathing: OOTN last night in Tenerife

Hi everyone,

A little OOTN for you today as I'm now back off of holiday. I haven't had the best of days since being back as I'm not feeling great. So I thought that with my spare time I would do this OOTN post. 

Sunday was our last evening in Tenerife and what better way to end a lovely two week break with a pretty dress. (Excuse the pictures they where a couple of on the spot selfies).

So this dress is one of my absolute favourites! This black and white dress is by Jones and Jones. These dresses are perfect for every occasion. 

I found out about Jones and Jones a little while ago when I ordered a cream Jones and Jones dress off of Vinted. I feel in love with them so much I went on a hunt to find as many as I could. 

I own three Jones and Jones dresses now. They are all in the 'Poppy' design. I have the one I am wearing in the photo, the cream one I spoke about and a red one. The dresses themselves our lovely! A beautiful lace top with a pretty Peter Pan style collar. The skirt of the dress is lined which makes it a perfectly full girly school. 

I had a look online and sadly they no longer stock the black and white one. However they have one in the 'Poppy' design which is similar but all black and it's just as gorgeous (I have to say I want this one to add to my collection). Find it here on the Jones and Jones website: do many other lovely dresses so have a browse of their site.

I paired it with my white ballet pumps which I brought from Primark specifically for my holiday. I also tied my hair up and pinned my little black bow I brought from Forever 21. 

Find the bow here on Forever 21's website (they also do lovely colours):

I couldn't find the shoes on primarks website but they have ones exactly the same on M and M direct:

Itsatashathing: The life in letters tag

Hi everyone,

It's my last day on holiday and I'm feeling the holiday blues already. It's been a lovely couple of weeks away and I've really enjoyed my time here in Tenerife. We're already planning to come back again, hopefully with a third member. 

I found the life in letters tag from dainty and Ivory (I've linked her blog below). So I  thought why not challenge myself to do it. So here it is:

A is for Aron, my boyfriend who is my world and I couldn't live without (also daddy to be).

B is for blanket. If I'm on the sofa watching TV, reading a book or doing a kriss cross puzzle, I feel naked without a blanket on. B could also be for blog as I am loving finding new things to write about.

C is for cake! I love cake! Chocolate, Victoria sponge cake, cupcakes or just any cake makes me happy.

D is for dogs. Dogs have to be one of my favourite animals.

E is for elevator. In the UK we call it a lift but I couldn't think of another one for E and I am petrified of them.

F is for family. I am a very family orientated person. I love my family and wouldn't be where I am today without them.

G is for glasses. I have to wear glasses for many different things but I never wear them. I really should as I can tell my eyes are getting worse.

H is for Harry Potter. I couldn't not put this in being the big fan I am.

I is for ice cream. I love ice cream in particular Ben and Jerry's.

J is for Jack Wills. I love this shop and have done for years. 

K is for kinder. I love kinder chocolate especially kinder eggs and kinder Bueno (I'm a big kid).

L is for listener. I like to think I am a good listener and I think I am good at giving advice.

M is for MAC. MAC is my favourite brand of makeup. I'm planning on going back to have another make over done. Or M could be for makeup in general!

N is for Nutella! I love this stuff! I would have Nutella on everything if I could.

O is for observe. I don't think I do this enough. I don't think I sit there and just take in what's around me. Things change to quickly and things get replaced or taken away. So I need to start taking a step back and observe my surroundings some more.

P is for pregnant. I am currently in my second trimester and I'm feeling okay. I'm planning on doing a pregnancy update soon but (touch wood) I haven't had any sickness since my very early stages.

Q is for quilt cover. I love buying new covers, I always find lovely ones in Primark.  

R is for reading. I love to read and I'm always on the look out for a good book. Let me know your favourite or what you're reading now, I like to read any genre.

S is for strawberries, my absolute favourite fruit and one of my cravings during my pregnancy.

T is for time. As I'm getting older (says the 20 year old) I'm stating to realise just how precious time is and that there isn't a lot of it.

U is for up. The way things are going. 

V is for Victoria's Secret. I spend way too much time in this shop, so many pretty things.

W is for winter. I love winter getting to wrap up in jumpers and scarfs. But the best bit about winter is Christmas, my favourite time of the year. Not to mention our baby will be here in time for Christmas this year. 

X is for X-Ray. I have had X-Ray's on my knees, mouth, wrist and ankles.

Y is for yes. A word I either say too much or not enough.

Z is for Zara. My new favourite shop. I brought a couple of bits on holiday and will show them in a haul post.

Some of the letters I really struggled to find something for but I made it and if you've made it to here thank you and comment 'I made it' so you can show you are a trooper!

Itsatashathing: A beautiful place to be!

Hi from Tenerife,

As you may or may not not know I'm currently on holiday in Tenerife. I have to say it's one of the best places I've ever been to. We are staying in the south of the island and we are having a great time! We are here for another week and I'm already feeling sad about having to go home.

We've been to the beach and we've been shopping in Siam mall. When I am back home I plan to do a haul for you on everything I have brought whilst in Tenerife. Our hotel is lovely and the food is amazing there is always plenty to choose from. The weather has been lovely and we've been enjoying soaking it all up.
