Who else is looking forward to the weekend? The weather is forecast to be lovely for another bank holiday, we could really get used to this!
One thing we do notice about this lovely sunshine weather, is that it makes us run to the wardrobe to find something bright and colourful. But, if you're not brave enough to step out of your winter woollies just yet, maybe you might want to think about a splash of colour with your accessories.
Our bag of the month is the beautiful Noughts and Kisses hobo bag. The perfect accessory for work or casual. This spacious design comes in other colours, but we love the black and white monochrome, it oozes a bit of sophistication and style. The bonus of black and white, is that you can team it with everything, from denim to floral pastels!
Bag yours quick before they all sell out!
Get ready to turn up the glam this season with some stunning arm candy! Let your accessories do the talking as you shimmy into Autumn Winter. It's not all about Christmas parties either, going glam and gorgeous on a standard Saturday night drinks with the girls is a worthy occasion for some dazzling bag love.
Check out this beautiful new arrival. It's has everything you need for ultimate glam. Good sized clutch measuring 30cm in length, perfect for housing all the make-up mobile and cash for one night out! And If you love to go hands free because you'd rather carry your cocktail, then slip on the chain hardware strap, and it will drape beautifully from your shoulder!

So we're well into Love Island and the sun is hot hot hot, it must be Summer!
Work or weekends, when you're wearing your Summer wardrobe, it always looks amazing if your arm candy complements your vibe. If you're into florals or pastels, white wash denim or neutral tones, pink is always a good choice to accessorise. It doesn't have to be in your face pink either, a subtle nude pink looks really classy and sophisticated.
We have a couple of favourites, that we'd love to share with you. Our Miss Penelope grab bag will tick a number of boxes. First off, it's a smaller size, so can really come into play for special occasions such as weddings and christenings. More spacious than a clutch bag and the exterior has a metallic sheen so it gives that hint of glam.
Our next favourite is the Oh So Chic Shoulder Bag. Beautiful in two tone pink and gold, and the exterior has a quilted stitch effect with part chain entwined shoulder handles. This is gorgeous desk to dinner arm candy.

Love Island is the talk of social media at the moment and it's not hard to see why! Even if you're not a fan of the show, you may be checking out the outfits and swimwear for a little inspiration for your own get away this Summer.
Now we have to admit, two of our favourite girls are Dani and Kendall. We love their down to earth, honest personality and both are so sweet. We're also loving all the girls day to night looks. The poolside vibe is lifted to a new level on Love Island with killer wedges and gorgeous swimsuits, we're talking glam hot!
And speaking of hot, when the temperatures up and the sun is shining, every gal needs a pair of decent sunglasses. And when we say decent, we mean a pair that not only looks good, but more importantly offers UV protection to keep those eyes protected. And a top tip, go for a large frame and lens, to keep those crows feet at bay!

OMG! How amazing was the Royal wedding. It was absolutely stunning, everything from the location to the weather, to the service and the official photographs that followed afterwards, just summed up how gorgeous the day was.
The day was no stranger to beautifully presented high class royals and A list celebs. George and Amal Clooney looked sensational together and Amal was sizzling in a mustard midi dress by Stella McCartney. Of course, David Beckham stole the show, looking dapper wearing shades with Victoria on the crook of his arm, in navy blue and vibrant colour heels.
Whatever your opinions of the best or worst dressed, one thing that was certain was the Meghan Markle sparkle shone through on her day. She looked radiant and stunning, her simple gown was accentuated with her flawless, barely there complexion and we're jealous her skin looks this good.
Here's our top tips to achieve that flawless look and smokey eye...please note tiara is not included!
Firstly, good skin starts from the inside. We know that drinking plenty of water flushes out bad toxins and contributes to good skin, try adding a slice of lemon for a refreshing drink to start your day and make sure you're drinking plenty throughout the day.
Never leave the house without a good moisturiser with a SPF, and this goes without saying in the sun. On holiday we would be wearing a minimum of SPF30 all over, but especially on the face, neck and decolette.
Meghan is late 30's, so we presume she's stepped up her skincare and includes a serum or oil in her routine. A night time oil is perfect for plumping the skin as it repairs itself through the night.
Achieving the barely there look is not as hard as it may appear. Instead of caking on the foundation, opt for a tinted BB cream and pinch your cheeks to create a rosy hue.
Smokey eyes can seem scary business, but it's really not. There's room for error as you can blend and buff mistakes. Start by lining the lid with a flesh toned shadow to cover any imperfections. Next, line the top lid, directly next to the lash line with a gel liner and blend with a smudger or brush to soften. Repeat this process along the bottom lash line and then swipe across the wet line. Smudging across the lower lash line will create a sexy dark haze, don't be afraid! Finally, curl the lashes and finish with a jet black mascara. If you don't feel confident to use black, opt for dark brown for a softer look
Finish with a simple nude gloss or tinted lip balm!

If you're a fan of the US legal drama series Suits, then you're were already familiar with the beautiful Meghan Markle before she said 'yes' to Prince Harry!
Meghan is a fantastic actress, beautiful and very upto date with the latest fashion trends. We think she will become a brilliant role model for women, as she embarks on her journey with Harry.
One of our new arrival handbags has been aptly named after Meghan. Our Markle tote is absolutely oozing bag envy. It's incredibly stylish, crafted in superior materials and finished off to a very high standard. It's classy, sophisticated and beautiful in rich warm burgundy tones. We love the pewter hardware too. Often, handbags come with gold tone clasps, fasteners and zips, occasionally we see silver, but rarely pewter and it's a stunning match to the design.
We could imagine the Markle handbag on someone who loves fashion, a lady who likes to look ultra smart at the office and likewise at weekends, when she's having cocktails or lunch dates with friends.
