Outfit // Lady in Red

Sweet Monday, Glamorous Sweet Monday blog, Glamorous Glamorous brown leather sandals
Top - Glamorous* // Jeans - Primark // Shoes - Glamorous* // Lips - Mac 'Russian Red'

Red isn't normally a colour I'm attracted too but I'm often told that red really suits brunettes. When browsing the Glamorous website I found this cami style top in a number of different colours but the red caught my eye. So unusual for me!
Now that I've worn it I really do love the colour. It's bright but not too over the top teamed with the dark jeans. I think I might have to invest in more red pieces. 

Please excuse the creases though! We have an iron but I hate ironing and hope that the creases will just fall out instead, which they don't. I steam all of the new arrivals at work and I really want to buy a steamer now! Or take my wardrobe to work with me and steam everything. Ironing is so boring compared.

Lifestyle // Shore Projects

Shore Projects, watch

If you follow me on Instagram you would've already seen but here's a better photo of my brand new watch from Shore Projects. Isn't it beautiful? 

I was over the moon when I was contacted by Ben at Shore Projects regarding their amazing collection of watches. I'm not a huge accessory of jewellery fan but I love a beautiful watch and I wear one every day without fail.

Shore Projects

The brand bases the style and design of their watches around the British seaside and the packaging reflects this entirely. Founded by a group of friends who realised they never watches, they wanted to create a timeless design. Which sounds exactly like my way of thinking, I never wore watches until I bought the classic Casio and since then I love the beauty in the design of watches like this one. So effortlessly chic and so gorgeous that you can easily wear it with anything.

The one I've chosen is called Poole and features a white face and silver plated stainless steel edge. The best thing about their watches is the innovative strap mechanism that makes it easy to swap the strap to a different colour. Depending on your mood or outfit you can alter your watch to match! They have some really pretty pastel shades that I'm sure a lot of you will love!

What do you think of this watch? Are you a watch wearing kind of person?

Lifestyle // Printic

Printic Polaroid Instagram Prints Instagram prints Printic app

I've seen many of my favourite bloggers post about this company before and expected them to be a lot like the many other companies printing Instagram photos. However when I was contacted by Printic I was surprised to find out that everything is done through an app on your phone. There's no website to sign up to, you simply download the app for FREE and upload your favourite photos straight from your phone. 
You can also choose as many or as few photos as you'd like to print. I've previously found that other said companies require a minimum order to print which can be annoying when purchasing for gifts especially. 

Also I've found recently that I use my phone a lot more for things like this. I've purchases Asos goodies from their app, I do all my banking on my trusty app, I renew my phone contract through an app… everything has migrated to mobile! And it's so much easier to do something at the touch of a button wherever you are. I really want to order some Printic prints for a friend back home and it's great that I can do it from my phone wherever I am in the world.

The prints themselves come in a cute little envelope and are printed on thin and glossy polaroid type paper. I love this as it really makes you feel like you have a genuine polaroid print. So if like me you love the look of polaroid but can't justify buying the camera and film, Printic is for you!

They also offer free worldwide shipping if you're away from home like me :) They also sell books and calendars which would make amazing gifts. Next Christmas I will definitely be making a range of calendars for my friends!

Outfit // Leopard Print Midi Dress

Sweet Monday blog Sweet Monday, Glamorous, Leopard print midi dress Glamorous midi dress Glamorous leopard print dress
Dress - Glamorous* // Shoes - Boohoo // Lipstick - Mac 'Russian Red'

I am a little bit in love with this leopard print midi dress from Glamorous. I purchased it from their sale for only £10, can you believe it?! Their sale is full of amazing bargains. Since purchasing this dress I've already worn it out twice. It's perfect here in Melbourne for a night out as the weather's cooler now so I can layer it with a leather jacket and boots. 

I really love the back detail in particular. I'm not usually one to go for something so slinky looking and expose so much flesh but I really like the loose, baggy fit around the top and the elasticated high waist line, cute!

Outfit // Boohoo Smock Dress

Sweet Monday Boohoo smock dress River Island chain necklace Boohoo Gladiator Sandals
Dress - Boohoo // Sandals - Boohoo* // Necklace - River Island via ASOS // Lips - Mac 'Candy Yum Yum'

I bought this dress from Boohoo as part of a large order the other week. Last year I spent the whole time saving hard and now I'm finally getting my release and going crazy. Although I really don't need anymore clothes but it's hard when I only came to Australia with a suitcase full. I've forgotten what I've left at home and want to update my limited wardrobe here.

Anyway back to Boohoo. I ended up placing my order on the UK site even though they have an Australian one as I had money sitting in my paypal just waiting to be spent! This smock dress had been reduced to just £12. It's a gorgeous thick textured fabric. Will come in handy now we're going into Winter here in Melbourne. I can't wait to pair it with some tights and boots. 

I also received these amazing chunky sandals from attending their event the other month. I'm really loving Boohoo at the moment. They have some great collections and everything's so affordable. Not like here in Australia where everything is ridiculously expensive!!
