Missguided Culottes Street Style - how to wear and Duster Coat Lurch Hound LovesName necklace and stripe top on fashion blog

It has to be said that culottes are one of the most flattering cut trousers on the market at the moment, as they cinch you in at the waist and then flare out to create a lovely silhouette and the illusion of a smaller waist, which, lets be honest, is something that we all wouldn't mind having now would we?! Plus, I will let you into a secret, this Missguided pair is now just £7 here...

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Review

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Review -Top Beauty Blog UK
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream - *Fragrance Direct

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream bottle is? Not only does this fragrance smell amazing, but the packaging is oh so divine too! Marc Jacobs new eau de toilette spray is new for summer 2014 and is an ethereal take on the original Daisy fragrance that was released back in 2007 - can you believe that 7 years has gone that fast already?!

A pale pretty blue hue with white flowers adorned on the bottle, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is a light, floral and fruity fragrance that has base notes of musk, coconut water and white wood with top notes of grapefruit, blackberry, jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria. I love this fragrance because I am a fan of musky and vanilla scents that also aren't too heavy and as a fan of all other MJ fragrances, it is only natural that I am a sucker for this one too!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream is available in 30ml plus and prices start at £32.99. Have you tried this fragrance?

P.S Also, I have been short-listed to win the opportunity to report live at London Fashion Week for Yahoo Lifestyle, if you could please spare two minutes to vote for 'Charlotte Lewis' here, if would make my day. Thank you!

Strawberry Lambrini Girls Just Want to Have Fun This Summer...

Lambrini Strawberry Drink Review on Lurch Hound Loves Lifestyle Blog
Lambrini Strawberry c/o

Like me, you might be wondering where Summer has gone to, but even if the sun doesn't want to shine then you can get into the Summer spirit with a bottle of new Strawberry Lambrini (RRP £3.20). During summer I love to drink fruity and refreshing alcoholic beverages during the weekend, after a hard week working away in the office, which meant that I was intrigued to test out Lambrini's new summer flavour, as I haven't been partial to a Lambrini since my uni days (which, might I add, was a good 5 years ago now...eeeek!)

I mixed my Lambrini Strawberry with crushed ice and fresh limes, as I find strawberry and lime to be the perfect summer fruits combination. Whether relaxing in the bath with a good fashion read and Yankee Candle, sunbathing in the garden or tucking into strawberries and cream for desert, Strawberry Lambrini is a pretty good companion to have by your side. Have you tried this new flavour yet?

A couple of weeks ago, James and I had our engagement party to celebrate the event with our friends and family.
