My Beloved Hair Style - Ombre Highlights

So I'm thinking of changing my hair, it's just plain at the minute and has a slight curl, so I'm thinking of getting ombre highlights. I don't want it to look fake I just want a sligh sun kissed look that adds a little more colour. Rose Byrne and Rachel Bilson have got the look just right, but i don't know if I am brave enough to actually take the leap. I have never had anything major done to it, so this would be a big change.....I'll think about it.

My Beloved Photographs - James Silver Horne

Recently fould these beautiful photos by a English photographer on the walls of my local Starbucks. There is a stunning one of a red squirrel in snow, a zany photo of a puffin mid call amid flowers, a adorable front portrait of a Highland cow, and a perfectly structured silhouette of a seal. They are amazingly shot, and depict wonderful aspects of nature. He is very skilled and certainly worth a look!

My Beloved Bikini - H&M

Everyone loves a great bikini, and when I saw this one from H&M I was very pleased to see it is only £3.99 for each half! With my summer holiday fast approaching, I have had an eagle eye out for the perfect bikini, and this is just what my collection needs. I already have a million patterned and embellished ensembles, and although this one is plain, it is in a great colour! Just right for casually stolling along the beach : )

My Beloved Idea - Birth Flower

Everyone knows they have a birth stone, but do they know that there is such a thing as a birth flower?! I did not know this so was quite surprised to find out that, firstly I have one, and secondly that mine (June) is a rose or honeysuckle! This actually makes alot of sense as I really like roses, and love honeysuckle, so much so that I recently saw Cath Kidston hand cream and am so annoyed that i have gone into 5 shops looking for it - no sign yet, so next stop is ebay. There was also a very shameful incident recently when I saw some when to smell it and it ended up looking like I was eating it and then the people that lived in the house that it belonged to were looking at was bad. 
Anway, this could simply be chance, but maybe its not! Thought I would post something so other people could see if this was true for them!

My Beloved Bag - Cath Kidston Velvet Tote

I have had this bag for so long that it is actualy startin to quite seriously fall apart. It did once look like this, but is now kinda grey as it has been rained, snowed, and dropped on the ground. It is really sturdy so can easily hold all my books, but isn't too big to swamp me. I got it for my 18th birthday from my parents and it is such a great present cause it is incredibly helpful and its really pretty and kinda different. Hopefully Cath Kidston will release a similar style soon!

My Beloved Shorts - Accessorize

With Summer just around the corner, my wardrobe is once again getting inundated with floral printed items. I don't often look to Accessorize for clothes but they have some great bikinis and pretty vest and pant sets this season. The graduated pattern on these shorts really gives them a vintage feel, but also means that your top can't be too busy.
All we need now is the sun to come back!

My Beloved Coat - Stella McCartney

I saw this trench on Hanneli Mustaparta's 5 days, 5 looks, 1 girl on and instantly had to look for it. Finally foung it on StellaMcCartney's own website, but the ony snag was it's £1,255. Had been hoping I could ask for it for my birthday, and realised it would be expensive, but that would be just a little too much to ask for.
Really like the detail of the print and how it looks like a botanical study rather than simply a basic repeating floral print. May be I will get a job over the summer and save up, but I bet by then they wont stock it! Definatley to be paired with some really light blue worn jeans, or a exceedingly short dress ah la Hanneli. Love the green bag, but I just got a great tan tote bag that would suit it. Finish it off with a gold  Cartier LOVE bracelet, hair loose, not too styled, and Chanel shoes. Perfect!
