Cable and Cotton String Lights* (set of 20) | £22.95

I feel that no matter how empty or sparse a room may be, a set of pretty fairy lights add a relaxing and calming ambience and make it feel more homely! Cable and Cotton have taken this to a whole new level with these unique and quirky string lights... They come in three different lengths; 20,35 and 50 lights and you can select one of their colour sets or choose your own, perfect if you are matching to a specific colour theme. I received the set of 20 string lights, which arrived very well packaged and unassembled, this is great because you can then arrange your lights in the order of how you want them! Each and every cotton lamp is hand-made in Thailand, and by purchasing you are supporting the livelihood and year-round income of these ethically employed, skilled craftswomen, whilst making your home look beautiful and at the same time! I picked a range of pastel and neutral shades(Pure White, Ivory, Pale Pink, Pale Blue, Pale Grey) to match with my bedroom, where I've hung them and doubled the length up along my shelves. I love how they look, and would definitely recommend the service and product from Cable and Cotton! These would make a really lovely gift, especially for someone who's just moved into a new home!

Modity Dress* - Pink | Darccy | £64£80
Diamante Nude Sandals | Primark | £4
Floral Headband | Primark | £2.50
Geneva Flower Watch | eBay | £1.16

I was recently introduced to Darccy via the etailPR blogger network. Darccy are a unique brand who offer an amazing range of vintage inspired clothing, accessories and handbags. A lot of their dresses feature floral patterns, flirty designs and lace detailing - which is all "right up my street" and I couldn't believe it when this gorgeous dress arrived in the post for me!

The Darccy Modity Dress* is very elegant, yet fun and flirty at the same time. It is a two-piece dress with a gorgeous ivory lace bodice with full length sleeves, leading into a skater style plain nude-pink skirt. The dress is well fitted, and does not offer much stretchiness, however it really feels great to wear and very comfortable.

I decided to wear this dress with my cute nude diamante sandals and a cute floral headband, both absolute bargains from Primark, and finally my pretty Geneva Floral Watch which I wrote about in my eBay Jewellery Haul post. I'm wearing No7 "Orange Spice" on my finger and toe nails. I think the dress would have also looked amazing with a pair of nude heels and with a vintage inspired up-do for your hair for a more formal look! 

What do you think of this dress... would you wear it, and how would you have styled it?

The best neutral colours for blondes

There is no Miami photographer that hasn’t captured a blonde girl. Sometimes, it even seems that the women are divided in two categories: the blondes and the rest of them. Just because this hair color somehow defines a woman’s style and way of living, let’s talk about the shades that fit the blondes the best. Especially, we’re interested in neutral shades, because they’re silent and chic.

Just as for the brunettes, the neutral shade palette is fairly easy to determine for blondes. However, before describing them it is necessary to give you some additional details: when choosing the right colors, the brightness of the hair color matters (platinum blonde, white or dark blonde) and the "temperature" (reddish blonde, golden blonde, ash blonde). Although, most of the blondes look good in black, this is not a color that really embellishes them. Actually, navy, blue ink, indigo or elegant shade of gray will put more value on the whole look. Black wraps them in an aura of severity, it tightens features and it highlights the wrinkles (if there are any).

Beige fits every single blonde, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should always dress in all-beige outfits. Try to balance the light brown color with another delicate shade. Cool colors will make any golden blonde look pale and will give to her an ashen complexion. This is why, focus your attention on warm shades that will bring to the whole look a harmony.

For those whose shade of blonde is a hot one (golden blonde, red blond, honey blond), the bangs are the starting point for finding the perfect neutral palette. Some of neutral colors that suit them are warm white, ivory, antique white, cream, beige, camel and caramel beige, light olive green, light tan and khaki, brown, copper, sepia, blue, brown cognac, medium gray.

Blondes are always happy. At least they seem like they’re always sunny and everything in their lives is alright. That’s why, in the end, it doesn’t really matter the color of your outfit. Sometimes your sun kissed hair and the smile on your face are just enough. But in case you’re a passionate Fashionista, there is nothing wrong in considering the best neutral palette of colors when choosing an outfit.
