OOTD: Manners London Diida Dress

Today's outfit features this absolute stunner of a red dress from Manners London. I first came across Manners while I was on Instagram. I randomly stumbled onto their page and read their bio which states 'not your average bodycon' so of course that intrigued me and I had to check out their site.

It is crazy how in love with this dress I am. From its gorgeous colour to its fit, It's the perfect piece for me. The dress is made from a super thick stretch jersey material that just hugs me in all the right places (It makes my butt look ahmazing!) It is an off the shoulder bardot style with an extra layer over the boob area. It can actually be worn without a bra because it has full support which is a great feature as I am always super conscious with dresses about not wearing bras but this one I do not have to worry at all.

I got this in a size small and I am a UK 8-10 for reference. It ranges from size XS-XL and the brand features models of all shapes and sizes which is exactly what the designer had in mind when she opened the store. She wanted to create something that made people feel empowered and inclusive. If you want to learn more about the brands story you can check HERE.

I have uploaded more pictures than usual for an outfit post but that's just because I was totally feeling myself in this dress. If you want to get this dress for yourself or anything else from their store you can use code RED to get 20% off the entire store.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2018

Today I'm bringing you my first Valentine's Day Gift Guide. The Christmas one went down quite well so I figured I'd do another in the same sort of style. I have included some 'classic' Valentine's gifts as well as some more general gifts which aren't love related.
 
Items marked with a * I have received free of charge. Items marked with a + are affiliate links. All opinions are my own.
First up I have to start with greeting cards of course! Valentine's Day wouldn't be Valentine's Day without cards from either your boyfriend, husband or even your secret admirer (taking it back to the school days there!) These lovely ones I've picked are from 'Something Made' on Etsy. They come in these really unique designs which are definitely perfect if you are looking for something a little bit different to the usual red love themed cards for the occasion. They also do wedding stationary so if you are planning your wedding you should definitely give this Etsy store a peek.

Next up we have these lovely Grace Cole gift sets. You cannot go wrong with a good skincare gift set especially if they are in their favourite fragrance. Grace Cole do a nice range of different scents on their website as well other gift sets that include candles, reed diffusers and other skincare related products.
Vanilla Blush & Peony Body Care Duo*
 
I'm also including some items from Missguided as it is one of my favourite online clothing stores at the moment. They have an amazing Valentine's collection and everything featured in it is 50% off until the 14th of February using the code mentioned below so it's definitely worth it. A few of my favourite choices above are an underwear bodysuit, a pink and a red dress and a pyjama set.
Use code LOVE50 to get 50% off Missguided's Valentine's Collection+ (Valid until Midnight 14th Feb)
I've also decided to include some more skincare products, this time from Rosina's Lotions & Potions. They do these luxury gift boxes which come in gorgeous floral covered packaging. The box can be kept afterwards for storage options which is what I'm doing with mine. I can also tell you that their products smell amazing!
Fragrance & Candle Collection
If your loved one wears fake tan then this is the gift for you. It includes 200ml 5 in 1 medium mousse, 75ml exfoliating skin primer, 75ml moisturising tan enhancer and a mitt so the perfect gift for any fake tan lover. 
St Moriz Advanced Pro Formula Prep, Tan & Maintain Gift Set
Another great gift for almost any female is make up. This set is from Sleep MakeUP and includes an eyeshadow palette with 12 shades, a mascara tube, illuminator and a red lipstick.
Face The Day Sleep MakeUP Gift Set
If you have a coffee lover in your life like I do then this Belmio coffee pod set will be the best gift for them. It includes 50 capsules in 5 different flavours. These pods are compatible with most Nespresso coffee machines but if you want to be sure check THIS page to find out exactly which ones are.

If your man wears various aftershave fragrances rather than a signature one then this Gold aftershave splash may be perfect for him. It is a lower affordable price than some of the top designer ones so it's definitely worth trying it out. It was launched in 1976 and is described as a 'fresh masculine fragrance for the man who goes for gold'.

Another gift for the man in your life is this Moosehead styling clay for their hair. If he is someone who is into styling his hair using products then this is the perfect gift. It's features are strong hold, matte finish, adds texture and definition and is for all hair types.
