Homey Touches

There’s one thing we refuse to leave out of this blog and it’s one of our favourite parts.
That’s right, you guessed it – it’s those little accessories that give your home that extra cosy, welcoming touch.
There’s something about adding a cinnamon candle, an inspirational poster or a snuggly throw around the house that perfects that inviting feeling.

Friends arrives at Primark


 

Primark is delighted to announce a new range of fan favourite items that will have everyone reminiscing about their favourite 90’s TV show FRIENDS, from Warner Bros.

Could we BE anymore excited about this collection? Bring Central Perk into your own home and prepare for coffee breaks on tap. Everyone’s fave American sitcom might have finished back in 2004, but the re-runs will live forever, am I right? And as nothing will ever quite fill the Friends shaped void in our lives, we might as well try and recreate it ourselves!! Find your lobster with these PJs, cosy throws, and duvet set, oh and a cookie jar so big that even Joey would be happy!

 

 

Life’s a Beach


Summer’s in full swing, the sun’s shining (for once),  people are jetting off left, right and centre and there’s not been a spot of rain in nearly 2 weeks!
Since the weather has been so dreamy, we’ve been inspired to put together the perfect beach-wear guide just for you.


Sun, sea and sarongs

If you weren’t blessed with skin that tans instead of burns then it’s important you have a beach cover up to hand just in case the sun gets a little too much.
We’ve had a look through Debenhams range of sarongs and kimonos to give you a little inspiration on how to style your swim wear with a stunning cover up. They have everything from light linen wraps to beautiful lace pieces.

Swim into style

You can’t go to the beach without the perfect swim wear so we’ve had a look in some of our favourite stores at their collections. Whether you’re a one piece kind of girl or prefer a sultry two piece, our broad selection of swimsuits will definitely complete your summer wardrobe.
Don’t worry boys, we haven’t forgot about you, we’ve found collection of swim shorts in H&M that will be perfect for all types of getaways, from family fun to lads holidays! Keep it simple with a solid colour or show off your personality with a bold and bright pattern, whatever your style, we know you’re going to love this range.

Tropical teasers

In our opinion, there’s one item of clothing that every lad needs when they go abroad and that’s a bright Hawaiian shirt!
There’s something about being on holiday that lets you push your style boundaries and nothing says that like one of these shirts from H&M, coming in at just £17.99.

Beach Bae-sics.

What does your beach towel say about you?
Whether you’re a self-confessed mermaid, Disney princess or Baywatch wannabe, then boy do we have the towel for you. We’ve had a little browse through Primark’s new range of beach towels and they have something that will radiate your personality to every sunbathing sally within a 5 mile radius.

 

Summer style? Sorted.


Summer is here! We may be seeing the odd bit of cold weather and rain but the sun has actually managed to make an appearance for more than a couple of hours, so it’s time to embrace the sunshine and hit the high street in the latest summer fashion. To give you a little helping hand, we’re going to be picking out some of our favourite looks from this season!

 

Sultry Swimwear

Whether you’re hitting the beaches of Marbella or just sunbathing in your back garden, we’ve found the perfect bikinis and swimsuits that will make you swoon. From triangle plain halter necks to bright patterned one pieces, there’s swimwear to suit everyone in our stores.

Dreamy Dresses

Strolling around the shops helped the little fashonista inside us run wild, we found dresses to suit everyone’s style!
From bright flowy numbers to 90’s styled denim, we couldn’t get enough of the endless collections our stores had to offer

 

Step into Summer

We don’t know about you but we think shoes can either make or break your outfit. So we’ve had a look around Schuh to find some seasonal must haves that will never ruin your style. They have everything a girl could ever need this summer from strappy sandals, peep toe heels to glitzy boots.

Get the glow.

When the sun’s bright and beaming, you want to make sure your highlight is too, so we’ve put together some of our favourite makeup products from our centre.

Winter Warmers at their Finest


Just because Christmas is over, doesn’t mean winter is. We’ve still got some chilly months ahead of us so we thought we’d give you a touch of wardrobe inspiration. Think chunky knits, thigh high boots, bold colours and statement pieces galore.

The Thigh’s the Limit.

You may have noticed over the past few months, people are definitely getting a tad more daring with their outfits… and we love it! Thigh high boots have taken the fashion world by storm. Pair them with a jumper dress, jeans or even leggings and you’ll look as though you’ve just stepped straight off the run way. An added bonus about wearing these boots is they keep your legs warm! They’re perfect for a night on the town because as well as keeping your little piggies nice and toasty, they look hot too!

Summer bodies are made in the winter.


If your New Year Resolutions are still going strong, then you’re probably following the ‘summer bodies are made in the winter’ rule, (we know we’re trying too, although it’s not gone too well so far). Trying to stay motivated for the gym is hard, especially when it’s cold outside and all you want to do it curl up in front of the fire and watch Netflix all day.
If there’s one thing that can motivate us, it’s finding the perfect gym outfit, and boy did our stores deliver! They have every style a girl could want, from bold, stand out active wear, to calming neutrals… if these outfits don’t motivate you, nothing will! We’re obsessed with Alice Liveingly’s new collection at Primark, not only is there a lot of options but it’s good quality and it won;’t break the bank. H&M have a gorgeous active wear collection, complete with workout accessories and finally, Topshop Ivy Park collection… what can we say? If it’s good enough for Beyonce, it’s good enough for us!

Life’s a Frill…

We don’t know about you but we’re living for frills at the moment! They can take a bland work outfit and transform you into the fun gal at the office. You’ll definitely be the Elle Woods of your workplace! From subtle blouse frills to bold trouser leg frills, there’s a style that will definitely entice you.
Work-wear used to be very basic, consisting of usually black, greys and whites… however in the recent years it’s definitely been given a mix up! Walking into your everyday office no longer looks like you just interrupted a funeral. People wear bold and bright colours, experiment with patterns and always throw a fun pair of shoes into the mix.
