Great Gizmos!

This is a bit of a different post to usual so if you were looking for my usual fashion or beauty related post, not today I'm afraid. What I am writing about, however, is toys and arts and crafts!

Obviously I am too old for this stuff but it is ideal for the kids I know so I thought I would share it with you to make birthday and christmas present buying for children a little bit easier!

Great Gizmos is my Dad's company (so you may say I'm a little bit biased) and they sell everything from toys, arts and crafts and dressing up sets. Some of the stuff they do, I wish I had when I was younger! You may have noticed the banner in the sidebar linking you to their website. Also, you you fancy any of their things, use the discount code 'ITLT20' for 20% off :)

Here, I have picked out some of my favourite things, enjoy!

This cute rainbow skirt is so pretty, my little cousins always beeline for it! It's perfect for dressing up as a princess/fairy etc

Seriously, how adorable is this owl soft toy?! It's super cute and super soft, if I wasn't supposed to be an adult, I would definitely own one!

Being a Geography and Natural Hazards student, I definitely had to feature this volcano making kit on my blog! To be perfectly honest with you, I am considering getting myself one as it looks a lot of fun.

I have done many mould and paint kits in my time and this mould and paint cupcake is probably my favourite. I love cupcakes and I love colours so colourful cupcakes are perfect! If only you could eat them...

These lamb booties are the cutest! I need to have a baby of my own so I can buy these because they are so adorable!

I think it's fair to say I like pink?! I love this pink pedal car and I have actually ridden on one when visiting my Dad at work haha, although I was worried that I would be too heavy for it and break it, it was a lot of fun!

Zoob is one of those things that can keep me quiet for a while, I have also spent many hours making different models, animals and other things so it is very entertaining. The plastic is hard and durable so you can throw it on hard surfaces all you like!

If you want to check out these toys or more, click here or on the banner on the left hand sidebar :) And don't forget the discount code 'ITLT20'!

Holiday Style Diary | Flowers Forever

It's my last Holiday Style Diary, I have finally gone through all my looks from my lovely holiday to Rhodes back in August! I finish this series with this pretty New Look playsuit that I have had for absolutely ages but I think it got lost in my wardrobe because I only recently re-discovered it. The material is thin and loose making it ideal for hot weather, and the pockets are extremely handy but not too obvious. I don't know if you've noticed but I am a bit of a fan of the floral print at the moment, it's just so pretty and girly!

I teamed it with my Primark flipflops for an easy look.

Holiday Style Diary | Pretty in Paradox

I am actually in love with Pretty Little Thing's paradox collection, if you haven't had a look, you definitely must check it out! I can't believe just how many lovely things they have on there, I definitely had to feature one on my blog. I picked this criss cross bodysuit. It is so flattering on the neckline and goes so well with high waisted shorts, like here, or high waisted trousers making it super versatile. I love the criss cross straps as it makes it stand out from a lot of other bodysuits and adds a bit of fun to the look.

As I was in Rhodes and it was hot, I paired my bodysuit with my New Look shorts and River Island sandals to create a casual yet pretty look.

Holiday Style Diary | Little Lacey

Just a quick one today as I have a million and one things to be getting on with! This bralet from Topshop is so pretty! The lace design is so intricate yet simple and the fact that is is white means that I can pair it with almost anything. So this New Look skort seemed perfect. The floral pattern adds some colour to this outfit without taking too much attention away from the peplum top. 

And of course I just had to team it with my River Island sandals! Ideal for the majority of my outfits.

Holiday Style Diary | Shell Pink and Tropical Print

Today's holiday style is my beautiful New Look combination. I've had these two lovelies for a while (and featured them on this blog post) and I keep finding occasions that I can wear them. I am a massive fan, if you haven't already noticed, of crop tops and my collection has massively grown over this spring/summer time. It's just a shame that the weather in England is getting too cold for them.

The tropical print was very popular over summer and my wardrobe is definitely no stranger to this palm print. It is perfect to pair with a simple colour like I have with this maxi skirt, which is called 'shell pink' making it fit into the holiday theme. The top is a soft material that feels so nice on the skin and the skirt hugs my waist making it fit perfectly. 

I wore my trusty Primark sandals with this outfit, although you can't really see them in any of the pictures!

Holiday Style Diary | Perfect Pastel

Oh look at that view! I'm having major post-holiday-blues looking at these pictures, the view from our balcony was lush! And this outfit was probably my favourite of all my holiday outfits. It's sophisticated yet fun and simple yet pretty. I am in love with pastels as they make for a perfect summer outfit, although shops are now featuring autumn/winter clothing so the general colour scheme is a lot darker.

My white crop top and pastel pink midi skirt, both from Boohoo, are so comfortable to wear and move around in, I was a tad worried that I wouldn't be able to move my legs very much but the material is stretchy so I needn't have worried! I love that the material is slightly thicker than most other crop tops and skirts, it makes it feel of such good quality, and would add a bit of warmth if I fancied wearing it in England. This is a combination that I had my eye on for quite a while, it is an outfit that is quite versatile and that I can mix and match with many other items. I paired them with my River Island sandals (which I am in LOVE with) and my Boohoo clutch bag (featured on this post) which I actually forgot to grab when taking these pictures, oops! 

Here are the links so you can go take a lookie!
