Holi One Festival is coming to Manchester!

Next Saturday the Holi One Colour Festival is coming to Manchester and I can't wait! If you've not heard of the Holi One Festival it's currently making it's way around the biggest cities in the UK and spreading lots of love and colour. The festival is all about people coming together and experiencing fun, colour and music at a really memorable event. 

The idea is to wear white on arrival and leave the festival covered in colour. The powder itself is provided at the festival and is made from rice flour and food colouring, so is allergy free and will not stain most clothes. Every hour on the hour the powder is thrown in a celebration of colour whilst enjoying the live acts and entertainment.

I've never attended the festival before but I will be at the event next week, so do let me know if you're going. For those wanting tickets, the event takes place at Heaton Park in Manchester from 12pm on 2nd August and you can find tickets and more info here. I hoping to get some fab photos too, so expect a post after the event!

Bronze Goddess Body Oil.

I've had this really big urge to take a trip to Cheshire Oaks recently, so me and the hubby headed off to Chester in search of some bargains and a walk down by the river. I popped in my all time favourite outlet store, The Cosmetics Company and browsed the shelves for something lovely. Just as I was about to leave empty handed I spotted the Bronze Goddess range by Estee Lauder

I can't count the many times I've sniffed this fragrance in Boots and every time it reminds me of cocktails on a beach somewhere hot (or just in my back garden with this beautiful weather). This is the most gorgeous, summer fragrance that's really coconutty but not too overpowering and it completely transports you to back to your favourite holiday destination. 

I initially picked up the EDT but then I spotted the body oil and gave it a go.  It's a non-greasy oil that sinks into the skin in seconds but leaves you smelling summery for hours. I ended up buying the oil, not only because it was cheaper but I found the scent stayed on longer than a perfume. It's also really great as a moisturiser and has been perfect for days when I've spent a lot of time in the sun. This 100ml bottle only cost £26, which was £9 off the RRP.

If you're a big fan of fruity, summery scents this one will certainly be a winner.

OOTD: Wedding Reception.

Playsuit - Topshop
Shoes - Zara
Extremely pale skin - My own...

First up I wanted to apologise for the poor quality of these photos. I mentioned I was at a wedding at the weekend and silly me forgot to pack my camera so these are taken on my iPhone. Moving on, this is what I wore for the evening reception on Saturday night. I adore this playsuit, I managed to get it in the sale earlier this year after eyeing it up the week before when it was full price. I love that it is so simple but classy and sophisticated at the same time. I really like the lace detail around the edge too, it adds a little more uniqueness to the outfit.

I also managed to pick up these gorgeous shoes in Zara sale whilst in Barcelona. They are so comfy and the perfect block heel to add a little height without making my feet feel as if they want to fall off. This is certainly one of my favourite outfits at the moment.

Here's a cheeky close up of me and the hubby at the wedding too...
