meet tilly the pug puppy

On Saturday the most exciting thing ever happened, I became the owner of the most adorable little pug puppy. If you follow me on Twitter you've probably seen my endless tweets about her, but I can't help myself, she is the best thing ever. I wanted to share a few photos of my pug bear, so I hope you guys don't mind! Tilly has just turned 9 weeks old, absolutely loves cuddles (puppy cuddles are the best kinda cuddles) & is an extremely clever little girl. She is fully house trained (thank goodness), sleeps pretty much all night & loves to chew her toy bone & chase the ball. She is currently asleep curled up in her little cosy bed with all her toys so I've finally had the chance to share her :):)

I've honestly wanted a pug for so long, I've thought about it a lot & I'm so glad I decided to get her. Puppies are hard work & require lots of your time, but she is worth it. Even my Mum is completely smitten with her & she isn't a dog person! Anyway, I need to go get her dinner ready but feel free to ask me any questions & be prepared to see many more puppy posts!

april favourites

Soap & Glory Scrub 'Em & Leave 'Em Body Buff - I've found myself using this more & more recently because the weather has decided to be nice & sunny & I've managed to brave bare legs a few days! To keep my legs smooth I use this body buff to exfoliate dead skin away. It's pretty pastel pink with slightly darker pink beads & smells a m a z i n g, perfect!

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover - Why I didn't pick this up earlier I don't know!? It has literally made removing nail polish the easiest thing in the world, no faffing around with cotton wool & a seperate remover. Whilst it doesn't take '1 second' it really is super quick at getting off polish, only taking a few seconds at most. It also smells of red fruit & vanilla which is lovely especially in comparison to other nail polish removers anyway! Although don't be stupid like me & sniff the actual pot really closely as you'll get overwhelmed with the fumes haha

Elemis Fresh Skin Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser - This came free with cosmopolitan magazine (I think!) a few weeks ago. I have heard lots of good things about the brand Elemis & I have really enjoyed using this little moisturiser. It smells quite fresh & 'natural', I am so awful at describing scents! It's not too heavy & has been a lovely base for my foundation. 

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner - This stuff really is a miracle product & I can't believe I haven't featured this on my blog sooner! I have used this conditoner so many times, I always go back to it because I honestly think it actually does wonders to my hair. As I have bleached the ends of my hair it is really dry & quite dead, but whenever I use this my hair becomes soft & easier to manage. The only annoying thing about this product is the packaging, it doesn't have a proper lid, just a sticker that covers the bottom of the bottle, which always comes off and product sometimes leaks out so I have to remember to store it with the sticker facing upwards!

Soap & Glory Heel Genius - I wore my converse for the first time in months which resulted in horrible blisters, which I wasn't expecting at all! So my little feet needed a bit of help to recover & this is where Heel Genius steps in (haha). Firstly I love the colour of this product, it's like a baby pastel minty blue which is pretty, makes a difference from the usual white creams anyway! Secondly it smells nice, some foot creams have such odd smells but this has a hint of mint, along with orange & lemon. Thirdly it manages to leave my feet moisturized but isn't annoying & sticky & it's helped to heal the dry skin around my blisters... sorry grim grim grim. Talking about feet is making me feel sick now, but overall it's another good product from S&G!

L'Oreal Top Coat 'Confetti' - I get so many compliments when I use this top coat. As much as I love glitter polish it's nice to have something a little different for a change & I really love the effect of this. Plus monochrome is big this season so it ties in well with the trends!

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - After a shower my facial skin always feels quite tight from the heat so I started putting a little of this on afterwards to refresh my skin & it's like my skin is having a drink! It feels so much more hydrated when I use it & even though it's an overnight mask I think it works perfectly well with only 5-10 minutes of application too. It's £20 but I think it's worth every penny & a little goes a long long way so I'm pretty sure this will last me forever, or at least quite while anyway.

black & white stripey dress

Dress - Motel
Denim Shirt - Topshop
Bowler Hat - ASOS
Gold Chain - h&m
Gold Heart Ring - River Island
Shoes - Topshop

This is a little outfit I wore when Dom & I went for brunch at the breakfast club in Spitalfields. I love this Motel dress so much, it's slightly oversized on me & I'm wearing an XS but I actually really like the way it fits. Usually oversized style dresses look awful on me because I'm so small I look drowned but this is so flattering. I put the denim shirt over the top but it was such a nice day weather wise I didn't really need it. I keep meaning to pick up a denim jacket though, I don't really like using this shirt as a jacket, it just doesn't look how I want it to!

Dom took these photos in my grim little backyard at my student house, I wanted to go somewhere else but I totally forgot when we were out that day so it had to do! I wish I had more confidence to get street style kinda snaps but I'd feel like a massive idiot... any tips!?
