Leopard print Laura Ashley...

When you say Laura Ashley, leopard print is not the first thing to spring to mind but this slinky shirt dress is one of the more unusual pieces in my wardrobe. I have had it for a couple of years now and even managed to take photos back in April 2014 but never posted them as I didn't like how they came out. I always tend to style it in quite a simple way, when you have a dress that is patterned, textured and almost satin-y, it doesn't need any extra embellishment! It was so windy when we took these photos that I almost blew away and revealed more than a glimpse of thigh in the process... ooer!

Dress: Laura Ashley, belt: Miss Selfridge, shoes: c/o George at ASDA, belt:Tesco
I love Max Factor make-up and as their liquid eyeliner is the only only one I have ever been able to get on with, I was keen to try their newest offering and I have to say, the Masterpiece liquid eyeliner did not disappoint! It is easy to use (a must for novices like me) and lasts all day without needing to reapply it, no one has time for that! I have been loving the Max Factor Creme Puff blush too, it gives such a glowy wash of colour. I have the 'Seductive Pink' shade but I am definitely going to buy 'Alluring Rose' too! I have been growing my hair slightly longer and I love being able to do a bit more with it. I just curled it slightly with my straighteners here and I couldn't believe how well it lasted! 

A better look at that amazing print
I have been wearing these wedges all the time recently, they are so comfy and are great for putting a spring in your step. I haven't really blogged about my beautiful Olivia Burton watch but it has been a constant accessory since Mark gave it to me for my birthday and I really really love it, it is just so pretty!

Are you a Laura Ashley fan?

More than a little bit of thigh, eh? ;) Getting a bit risqué for chilly Jan! You look blooming amazing (as always), and pull that LA beaut off like a pro x Rebecca - itscohen.co.uk

Such a pretty dress. The print is such a lovely version of leopard print.

And the make up looks great. I rarely use Maxfactor, but I think I might have to pick up some products.
