Happy Easter everyone! Hope you ate loads of chocolate, I haven't had any but I'm hoping to rectify that by having many many cakes later on. Anywho, I recently posted another nail design for my nail it series and I decided to post the tutorial also. Hope you have fun recreating the looks and don't forget to tweet me or tag me in instagram if you recreate it, I'd love to see your interpretations :).

So I did plan on keeping these nails simple, by just keeping them orange, but then I saw my nail art pen and one thing led to another and this design was created. I don't know what to call it really but decided on the tribal nail art name as it seemed appropriate. A tutorial will follow this design very shortly so stay tuned.

Where have you been Jess???

Hey guys, as you can see from my posts,my blog has been a little sporadic. You'll probably want to know why..well if you follow me on twitter or instagram you'll know I have been complaining, about my dissertation, so I've been MIA as uni took priority. But I've missed blogging so much, and I felt slightly detached, as I slaved away  trying to get this dreaded thing finished. Anywho, the point of this long monologue is that  my dissertation was handed  in on the 7th March,after spending 24 hours in the library trying to do the final changes to it, and it took ages.

Now normally, if I wasn't exhausted, I would've jumped at the chance at do a blog post right away. But since I decided to base my dissertation on fashion and beauty blogging, I decided to take a break and celebrate with my friends and also catch up with some one special, who I have neglected for a while... my bed. So feeling slightly refreshed I decided to get back into the swing of blogging. The only thing I have left to do is my exams in the summer, but for now I'm all yours baby!

So bare with me! It's going to be a bumpy ride getting back into blogging.. how have you guys been?

 Also I would be grateful if you could nominate me for the Company Style Blogger Awards 2013 with New Look. The badge is on the left but you can click here to nominate me for best personal style blog and or fashion blog!

If you follow me on instagram(@jd_lwig) you would know that I posted this pic of my nails a few weeks ago, whilst I was procrastinating with dissertation! I have to say my nail art skills have improved a lot! I actually tried this design out about 2 years ago here.  So what do you think yay or nay?  Let me know if you want a tutorial

LUST LIST 018| In Love With Fashion competition

lust list:018 In love with fashion

  1. DRESS-£38
  2. BOOTS- £36
  3. TOP-£28 
  4. SKIRT-£28 
  5. DRESS-£28
  6. DRESS-£36

So as many of you may or may not know, In Love with Fashion are doing a blogger competition where you could win £200 to spend on the website. As I am now free from the clutches of my dissertation, I decided to give this competition a whirl.To be in the running, I had to create a wishlist from the brand! As I had never really heard about the brand, I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a look at the type of fashion they sell.

Item number 1 has to be my favourite piece, not only is the shape flattering it is also quite feminine but could be edged up with a rolled up- sleeved leather jacket. I am thinking with a top knot,winged eyeliner and fuschia lippie!
I really liked the boots, as they seem really versatile and they look  easy to walk in. These are my two criterias when picking a shoe! I'm sorry JC nightwalks look amazing, but if I can't walk in them I ain't buying!
I really like that this floral crop top, it reminds me of a top my mate Hannah just bought which was in white. But as I hate getting anything white dirty(never looks the same after washing) I thought this is really pretty in this colour.
Now, I really liked the high necked jersey dress. It is a little different to what I usually go for, probably because I tend to shy away from the whole high necked thing.As I have a lot of boobage on my chest and I don't want my chest to look like a shelf. Nevertheless, I like it and I really think this would be flattering on.
The strippy midi dress is sexy dress, but quite understated. It makes use of the curves and I really like the slit of the dress. Hmm I seem to have a love for stripes at the moment. 
So those are my picks, have you heard about  In love with fashion? Or have you done this competition? I'd love to know :)
