Holiday / Summer LOOKBOOK

Hola lovelies! I hope you’re all well :)

A few days ago I got back from the beautiful country of Spain. I went there for a week for my Summer holiday, and it was just stunning! I have lots of photos of it which I’ll be sharing with you in a future post, once we have gathered all the pictures together! 

For now though, I have a fashion post, where I am going to be showing you some of the outifts I wore in Spain. These outfits are super summery so hopefully they will enlighten you, what with all this horrid english weather at the moment! 

I really feel like my style has developed lately and become more worthy of showing my blog haha! If you look at my posts from a year back you’ll see that my style was just awful – but that comes with age I guess!IMG_1662 (2)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post and get a little insight on what my style has been like lately!

GUEST POST : My Favourite Summer Nail Polishes

Hello there lovelies! I really wanted to try something new and have some other bloggers write a post for my blog. I think this will be a great way of getting a wider audience and I love helping out other bloggers! If you want to guest post for me (which I’d be delighted about if you did) then contact me on twitter @kavichick2000 or leave me a comment!

Today I have the lovely Gemma who writes the blog Mccarthysbeautyreview which is a blog all about beauty, and she is going to be talking about her favourite summer nail polishes! I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to check out her blog too :)

Hello there!

I’m Gemma from McCarthy’s Beauty review, I’ve been invited to do a guest blog piece by the lovely Kavi. I just want to say thank you for the opportunity and hello to all your readers!

 If you like what you read you can find me over at mccarthysbeautyreview.wordpress.com. Come and say hello, you’re always welcome!

I decided since the weather is not here nor there at the minute I’d inject a bit of sunshine into your day, and what better way to do that than bold, and beautiful nail colour!

I always feel so much better after painting my nails, especially my toe nails, and putting on those gorgeous summer sandals!

Here are my favourite summer ones from my collection!

Avon Gel nails –Orange Crush

I love this colour it’s a vibrant, bright orange that screams summer to me! I love this on my toes, it really does look great in sandals.

The gel formula also lasts really well, and is lovely and shiny!

Essie- Ballet Slipper

A beautiful delicate pink that I use as my go to colour for work! It’s plain and makes your nails look neat and cared for. This lasts really well too, my record is 8 days without a chip! This is my favourite Essie polish to date.

Illamasqua – Ruthless

I love this one! I wear it all year round and it really is a beautiful, classic red. It looks great for everyday wear and adds ultimate glamour to a more dressed up look. The formula of this goes on gorgeously too, I can get away with one coat of this.

Tanya Burr- Mini Marshmallows’

Another delicate pink colour, that’s perfect for work and keeping your nails looking neat. The formula is really shiny and lasts on the nails great. I’ve managed a week with this one. I will be buying more colours from Tanya’s gorgeous range soon!

Collection –Pink Cadillac

This one is a gorgeous vibrant pink that has a rosy tone! I love it.  I always get lots of compliments when I wear this one! It really is a gorgeous bright, but classic pink. Another great choice for summer toes, ready for sandals!

Barry M Gelly nail polish – Lychee and Blueberry

I love the formula of these gelly polishes, they have a gorgeous shine when they dry and the colours are beautifully bright. I love the Lychee colour as is a very clean natural colour and perfect for cooperate work environments, like my own.

The blueberry colour is stunning! It’s perfect for summer, I’m going to say it’s my absolute favourite out of the bunch! It remind me of holidays…

Max Factor Gloss Finity –Clear

My favourite top coat, its glossy and seals most nail polishes. I love how shiny it makes any polish look! I would highly recommend this if you’re looking for a glossy top coat that’s long lasting!

There you go, my run down of my favourite summer nail polishes! I hope this gave you some inspiration if you’ve been looking for your summer nail polish.

Thank you for reading and thank you Kavi for letting me jabber on! Remember to come over to my place and say hello sometime!

I hope you enjoyed the post guys! Thanks so much Gemma :) 

Love,

Beach Bag Essentials

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all okay?!

I wanted to do some kind of summer essentials post, but instead of doing the whole thing, I thought I’d show you my beach bag essentials! Now I’ve been extra cool and I actually took these photos on a beach. That’s how a blogger does it ;)

I picked a few must haves that every girl needs by the beach, and here they are!

IMG_1430

IMG_1431

 

First things first, we need a good beach mat to sit/lay on. This one was super cheap but it’s also super cute. 

In my bag, I packed light but packed everything that I needed. This is what I chose:

* Sun Lotion – We all need a good suncream don’t we? Burnt skin is not attractive, and then we go through the dreaded peeling stage… Trust me. Been there, done that. It shall not happen again. I love this one because it’s handbag friendly and isn’t too thick or sticky – dries super quick too which is always a plus!

* Tic Tacs – Anything for your breath really – mints, gum, breath spray etc. You never know what you’re going to be eating, and things can get a little smelly so if you have something to hand you’ll always be safe.

* A good book – I didn’t photograph this one but it’s a staple anyway. A good book is the perfect solution for switching off from the world for a while… Any recommendations for the next book I read?

* Earphones – If you’re like me and love listening to music wherever you are, you’ll definitely be needing some of these.

* Hollywood Style Sunglasses – This is your moment girls! Pop some oversized sunglasses on and you’ll either look like a celebrity or a clown… ;) Personally I don’t mind sporting either look, haha!

* Hand Sanitizer – Who knows what you’ll be touching! If you’re going to be eating something, which I’m sure you will, then you must keep your hands clean! This one is by B&BW, and it smells like summer and mangoes! Yum.

* A bright Lippie – It’s Summer – you’re skin is tanned and you’re sunnies are on. It’s the perfect time to try out a bold lip! Instead of red, sport orange as it’s more Summer friendly. The one I chose is by Revlon, in the shade Rendezvous. 

* Lightening Hair Spray / Sea Salt Spray - I made this spray and posted a DIY post on my blog last year, and it seemed to be very popular. It only really works in the sun, so whenever I know I’m going to be exposed to the sun I take it with me and spritz a good amount all over my mane.

So that’s my beach bag essentials! What are yours?

Thanks for reading!

Love,

Summer Nails Of The Day #4 – Matte Red

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all well :)

I’ve been loving doing this series on my blog. I have so much nail polish and I love showing you my pick each week, with a mini review too. What’s been you’re favourite NOTD post so far?

As I’m writing this, I am in England, but as you are reading this, I shall be in Spain! I wanted to paint my nails a classic colour that would go with all my holiday outifts, and this is what I picked…

It’s a classic, simple red. It hasn’t got much else to it but it needn’t, red on your nails shows so much character. Classy, chic and feminine. This one is called ‘Double Decker Red‘ and it’s from Rimmels’ I ♥ Lasting Finish range.

As much as I love a red manicure, I wanted to up the amp with this one so I added a matte topcoat on from Bourjois. This adds so much more to the nails and gives it a refreshing, summery vibe! 

I love this matte topcoat and I couldn’t reccommend getting one enough. It would save you tons of money because you can put it on top of anything. Glitter, gel, black- anything!

I definitely ♥ this manicure (cheeky pun intended), do you like it?

Thanks for reading!

Love,

My Summer Music Playlist 2014

Hello lovelies!

So when Summer comes the first thing on my mind is new music – a complete refresh on my playlists and something a bit different to the usual ‘Alternative’ genre. This time I’ve gone for all POP music. And no Arctic Monkeys whatsoever. I fancied something a bit more upbeat with a different vibe for the beach/pool/summer and anything AM was not fitting in that category. 

So here are the tunes I’ve been listening to this Summer and will have for my holiday!

playlist

Rude // MAGIC!

Surfboard // Cody Simpson

Maps // Maroon 5

Its My Birthday // Will.i.am ft. Cody Wise

Don’t Stop // 5SOS

Happy Little Pill // Troye Sivan

Hideaway // Kiesza

Chandelier // Sia

Gecko (Overdrive) // Oliver Heldens & Becky Hill

Wasted // Tiesto ft Matthew Koma

Wiggle // Jason Derulo

I hope you enjoyed this post! I know my music posts aren’t as popular as the others but I enjoy writing them so ya know ;)

Thanks for reading!

Love,

Kavi xox

P.S. I’m off to Spain tomorrow woo! I’ll have a few posts up whilst I’m away but I’m going to try and go internet-less so I won’t reply to comments straight away! Are you going anywhere nice? :)

Brighton // OOTD & Photos

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all well :)

So one Sunday the family decided to take a trip down to Brighton. It was a long journey but when we got there it was great! There was sooo many people, I don’t think I saw a single spot without someone standing in it. Brighton had a really cool vibe, everyone was chatting or sunbathing or eating ice cream, and there were so many cute places to eat and go to. 

It was so pretty and I could not resist being a typical blogger and taking lots of snaps! I thought today I’d share some of the pictures with you, as well as the outfit I wore.

Let’s start with the outfit! 

So for the outfit I wore some new pieces that I’ve recently purchased. I finally got a kimono and this one is black and white (of course I couldn’t choose another colour) and is from H&M. It’s so light and pretty and basically goes with everything. I can tell it’s going to be a massive summer staple! 

The top I wore was also from H&M and it’s just this little grey high neck crop top. For shorts I have these ones from Red Herring I believe, I’ve had them for years but they’ve only just started to fit me properly. 

Of course, I wore my watermelon flipflops, also from H&M. As you can tell I really love H&M haha! The bracelets are from Debenhams and my cute shell anklet is from the Bahamas. The necklace is my mum’s but she’s not sure where it’s from.

Now I’ve got some snaps from the day, just all pretty things I saw and some of the food I ate. My mum made pasta salad which we ate in cups and that was yummy, then I had a Mr Whippy Ice Cream, which was da bomb. I’ll let you enjoy all the pictures now!

So I hope you enjoyed this pic heavy post! I had a fabulous time and I couldn’t wait to share all the pictures with you all. Have you been to the seaside lately?

Summer Nails Of The Day #3 – Beaded

Hiya! Hope you’re all well :)

For today’s post I wanted to show you what’s on my nails at the moment. I’ve been changing my nails a lot lately and of course I’ve been sticking to the good old theme of blue. Blue is definitely my favourite colour for nail polish, as you can probably tell if you look at any of my nail polish posts.

I recently went to Westfields as some of you may know, and I was in Urban Outfitters (can I just say what a perfect store this is) when I saw this gorgeous nail polish in the sale section for £3. Yes, you read that right, £3.

It has the coolest packaging ever for a nail polish and it is absolutely massive. A blue and white mix that is meant for either layering or washing on top of another colour. I decided to layer it and look how cool it looks, I love that it’s so textured.

I love this nail polish and can see myself using it multiple times in the future!

What do you think about this Nail Polish?

Thanks for reading!
