Flower Print Dress from Tophop

Dress Topshop / Jewellery T:S / Coloured contact lenses* (non prescription) visiondirect.co.uk

Have had such a good weekend doing NOTHING but eat! Had the best Sunday dinner today, we had roast chicken, rosemary potatoes and minted peas. We have lots of herbs growing in the garden so decided to actually use them in our cooking today! For dessert, I had half a tub of peanut butter ice cream, I posted the pic on instagram (my user name on there is tempsec, btw!) and if you’re a fan of peanut butter, then I am confident to say that you need to go to your local Marks and Spencers and purchase some, you will love it! It’s got fudge pieces and chocolate coated salty peanuts! Best thing ever! I am still feeling a little ill after wolfing it down like a beast! I shoved a handful of Pringles in my gob afterwards as well. Why are they soooo addictive!!
Now about the dress! I am really unsure whether red suits me, I like it on the hanger and I like the print, but this shade of red is just so bright and I feel really self-conscious in it. I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb! It is a really lovely dress, nevertheless, so I will get over it! 
I am still loving my coloured contact lenses and this weekend, I made an order on Vision Direct for a set of hazel brown lenses. My natural eye colour is very dark brown so hopefully the hazel colour will brighten them up without the drastic colour change. After experimenting with the lenses, I find that I am able to get away with make up that didn’t suit me before such as hot pink lipsticks. I own a few bright red and pink lipsticks but more often than not, I will always end up opting for a coral shade. It’s weird how small changes can make a big difference. I usually wear orange and corals, or sheer pink. The lipstick I am wearing above is Full Fuscia from MAC, it’s an Amplified colour so it’s got great coverage. I won it via Grazed Knees ages ago and I absolutely love it. I don’t think you can purchase it anymore so I cherish it like gold dust! I will do a make up blog post next week and introduce what products I use on a daily basis. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my gorgeous blog friends! x

    very cute print!

  4. 8th July 2012 / 6:04 pm

    I think this shade of red suits you perfectly! You can always throw on a neutral coloured cardi if you feel self-conscious but you stand out in a good way ! 🙂 x

    you look gorgeous! i love that lip colour on you, and that dress is just gorgeous.. xo

    Ahh I need to try that Peanut Butter Icecream it sounds lush! Have you tried the peanut butter and dark chocolate cookies recipe in the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook? They taste so good 🙂

    Love the dress, the colour red really suits you and the print is so pretty xx

    I love this dress on you. I think the red suits you. I always think I'm too pale for it and it classes with my hair but it always brightens my mood when I wear it. X

  9. 8th July 2012 / 7:50 pm

    I love red on you – such a pretty print too! As for the peanut butter ice-cream, I'm on a mission to find it & will blame you when I get fat 🙂 x

  10. 8th July 2012 / 8:08 pm

    I think the red definitely suits you, you look absolutely fab! As I've recently had laser eye surgery (well, 2 months ago now!), I'd really like to experiment with coloured contacts, so I'll remember where you got yours from! x

  11. 8th July 2012 / 8:20 pm

    I love that dress! The grey contacts really suit you. I used to have green ones, but it looked so unnatural :/ Peanut butter ice cream?! I definitely need to get to Marks & Spencer! x

  12. 8th July 2012 / 8:50 pm

    That's so cute you grow your own herbs! I almost overeat at weekends too since I don't have time to eat during the week as sad as it sounds 🙁

    I think the red really suits you – very bold and striking!

    Looking forward to the makeup post as I'm always intrigued by your looks x

  13. 8th July 2012 / 9:02 pm

    Oh the colour really does suit you! It's lovely and bright. Compliments your lovely hair too.

    I'm so intrigued by contact lenses, my eyes are green but quite dull… I'd love to try a bright green shade to pep them up!

    Ahh your dinner sounds amazing, I really must cook a roastie soon, its been far too long! Not so sure on the idea of peanut butter ice cream though – I really like peanut butter in sweets, cookies and ice cream but for some reason can't stomach actual peanut butter – eugh!

    I LOVE you in this dress, I think its really flattering around your waist and is gorgeous colour, even if it is bright – Thats a good thing, promise! Your contacts are also amazing. They're honestly the first thing I noticed in these pictures before even reading the text, very bright and alluring.

    Hope you're well!
