Most Worn Summer Things Tag

So as its already or nearing the end of the summer for most of us, I thought I would do a sort of summer round up, in the form of the most worn summer things tag!
Most Worn Shoes - iPanema Flip Flops
This was very close between these and my sky-blue converse but I think I wore these more, especially near the beginning of the summer when it was a bit warmer. I mention these in a post a while back and I still love them so much as they are so comfy and go with everything.
Most Worn Bag - Gap Fringed Bag
I re-discovered this bag this summer and have fallen back in love with it. Its a little tattered but it still holds its shape and it fits everything I need in for the summer months.
Most Worn Nail Polish - Barry M Blue Moon
This seems to have been my go-to nail polish this summer. Its such a pretty pale blue and I just lurvve it. Plus Barry M is amazing as it doesn't chip for ages.
 Most Worn Clothing Item - Pastel Pink Primark Shorts
I've worn these to death this summer - they are the perfect pastel summer colour and they are the perfect length, perfect fit and they go with so much. Could not live without these.
Most Worn Hair Product - Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protector
I am very disloyal when it comes to hair products - I hardly ever re-purchase the same ones as I'm always on the hunt for better but this is one I do repurchase. I makes you hair look healthy and shiny and protects really well.
Most Worn Scent - Gilly Hicks Velvet Cassia body spray
I prefer body spray to perfume in summer as its lighter and this has been my fav this year. I love this one - its very light, sweet and refreshing and have loved it.
 Most Worn Face Product - Maybelline Super Stay Concealer
I've mention this before in a post and I still maintain its the best concealer ever. I haven't been wearing a lot on my face in the summer as I like lighter make up, but I use this everyday where I need it and its perfect.
Most Worn Eye Product - Rimmel ScandalEyes Mascara
I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara after reading reviews. Its really good at separating and adding length and volume and I have been loving it all summer.
Most Worn Lip Product - This is a lovely red - tinted lip balm and I have worn it almost everyday. 'Nuff said.

So that's it! I hope you enjoyed this post and I tag all of my followers to do this!
Lots Of Love

I Made It A Year

 few favourite moments of my blogging year
One year ago today, on the 20th of August 2012, I started this blog. I honestly didn't think I would keep doing it for a month, let a lone a year. And I have loved it.
I have learn so much through blogging, met so many lovely other bloggers, found so many new amazing blogs and had so much fun. I wouldn't change any of it and I'm so glad I started a blog.
I want to thank everyone who's followed, commented or read my blog, from the very first to the most recent - I love you all :). I have a few sort of celebratory post coming in the next few weeks so look forward to seeing those. If you have any requests as well just let me know! I am now going to go and celebrate by watching The Great British Bake Off and eating ice cream :)

So here's to another year and see you in 2014!

EDIT - P.S I have now changed my email to helenainafewnutshells@yahoo.co.uk so please email me there from now on. I will check my old one every now and again but please try to use the new one. Thanks! ox

Pink Aztecs

||    Top - Brandy Melville     Bandeau - Brandy Melville    Shorts - Primark   Nails - Barry M Silvery Lilac  ||
Another of my buys when I went to Brandy was this little Aztec slightly-cropped top, which I thought was quite cute. I've been meaning to include these shorts in a post for a while as I have lived in them this summer. Also, I think this is my new favourite nail polish - Barry M Silvery Lilac - its the prettiest, iridescent, holographic colour ever and it wasn't too expensive either :)
Apologies for the mess my blog has been and is going to be in for a while - I'm trying to change my blog design and get it just how I want it, which is taking long than I expected:( but ill get there! XD
Hope you are having a great summer (and those going back to school, its not to bad -_- )

Stay Weird.

||      Top - Brandy Melville    Skirt - Brandy Melville    Bandeau Top - Brandy Melville  ||
I've seen a lot of lovely clothes which US Youtubers and bloggers have got from Brandy Melville and I've always thought there were none in the UK. But I recently found out there was one in London and so last week when I was there, I popped in. And I came out with a few bits, these being some of them. I love them.
Hope you are all having a lovely summer

Summer Holiday Snaps

Last Week, I went away to lovely Cornwall on my summer holiday! We stayed in North Cornwall, near Padstow and the weather was surprisingly warm, which was nice :). I took a few snaps while I was there so I thought I would share them with you (they're not amazing, sorry ^_^) xo
>> lovely view//pretty beach huts//suncream sunshine//best pizza ever//deathly hallows in da sand//beaaachh//chilling with a john green//got my body board to stand up//then it fell over//moi//Padstow harbour//converseee//top of a hill//port issac//strawberry milkshake//beach at port issac <<
Yes I have a wooden body board. But trust me, It works so much better! We didn't do that much while we were there, we just relaxed, went to the beach and to a few small towns in the area. We just wanted to chill as we where all so tired! I forgot to take my camera a few places but these are the best shots I got and I quite liked them.

Where did you go on holiday??
Lots of Love, Helena xox
