Mind the gap, Victoria and Ted baker body spray

Mind the gap, Victoria.

It's so weird that the first thing I'm attracted too when browsing the Rimmel London nail polish's is my favorite color and has my name in the products name. I wasn't intending to buy anything really just looking as you do and instantly pick this colour up and had to buy it and I love it so much. I have a thing about blue, every summer its my favorite colour. Its in their 60 seconds range and obviously its called Mind the gap, Victoria. Its says that you only need one coat but I definitely needed two but non the less such a gorgeous colour and Its staying in my favorites.

Ted baker Body spray.

Again I wasn't intending to buy anything but I just can't help myself sometimes, my friend was actually looking at them as well and so I went for it. Its was only after I tried to find it online that I found out that this one is called Butterfly wings and it has bergamot and red fruit in it and smells amazing, they also do a Treasured Orchid and Origami. Its bag size like a impulse spay so you can carry it in your bag and give it a spritz when you need a freshen up and leaves you smelling gorgeous.

D.I.Y denim cutoff tutorial.

D.I.Y Denim cutoffs.

First of all.
You will need

  • A pair of jeans you want to cutoff
  • A measuring tape
  • Tailors or white chalk
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread(Optional)

First turn your jeans inside out, then measure three or four inches (depending on how short you want your cutoffs) from the rise ( the inner leg)

mark with your chalk.

On one leg you then draw a curved dotted line to the other side of the leg, this is so it's all neat.
Carefully cut along your dotted line with sharp scissors making sure to cut as smooth as possible to avoid zigzags in your cutoff.

Now fold your jeans in half one leg on top of the other, with the chalk trace your cut leg onto the other with a dotted line so they will be the same length, cut along the dotted line again carefully to avoid zigzags.

Turn your jeans outside in and try on to make sure that you like the length.
If you want a frayed look simply put at the exposed threads at the end of your new cutoffs.

As an added measure I decided to stitch the seams of my new cutoffs to strengthen them and to stop them coming lose. I also decided to give a distressed look.
And finally wash them and enjoy.

What I've learnt form this D.I.Y 

Don't use jeans with elastic in the material, the label usually tells you whether or not it will. tip here use real denim 
Take your time and don't rush you'll only mess it up and end up with them being too short.
Make sure the scissors your using are sharp enough.

Do hope you enjoyed this D.I.Y tutorial.

A taste of America

A taste of America.

Five guys.

I'm sure you guys have heard of Five guys burger and fries. I'd heard about it from Lily Melrose and wanted to go for ages but didn't think going all the way to London Covent garden just to have a burger was worth it, how wrong I was. But then I find out that one is opening in Uxbridge!  SO happy :)

Five guys are an America burger bar, so much better then McDonald's. A little bit pricey just a cheeseburger on its own is eight pounds, so maybe as a payday treat or just get a little burger it’s a little bit cheaper. They also do hot dogs and sandwiches. So I met up with my friend for lunch and went there, at first it was crazy loud and a bit intimidating, but the atmosphere was amazing and the retro music set a real American feel.

I will definitely be visiting five guys again in the future.
