Motel Rocks wishlist and discount code :)

As a member of the Motel Rocks Street Team, I am constantly browsing (and spending my money) on their website. They have lots of lovely new garments in, and some cute Spring colours appearing too, so I thought I would show you some of my favourites and remind you all of my 20% off discount code which can be used all day everyday! :)

'Hand of Rock' Printed Tank Top - £25.00 (£20.00 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
I can't wait for it to be summer again so that I can wear cute little tank tops and shorts! I think this one's really cute and looks like something you would get from Urban Outfitters.

'Black Smoke' Bodycon Midi Dress - £38.00 (£30.60 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
I love the tie dye pattern on this dress. It reminds me of the dress I wore on Valentines day in my previous post, which can be dressed up with a chunky necklace, or dressed down with a denim jacket and some Vans!

'Brenda' Black Fishnet Skater Dress - £45.00 (£36.00 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
I absolutely love this gothic look.Yet again it could be dressed up or down for the daytime or evening and could be worn in so many ways.

'Black Smoke' Pollyanna T-shirt Dress - £35.00 (£28.00 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
This top is the same pattern as the maxi dress above, and it's so simple yet pretty. This could look really nice with a pair of high waisted shorts and a big statement necklace.

Catalina' Off Shoulder Skater Dress - £38.00 (£30.60 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
I really want this dress! My housemate bought it the other day in red and it's so flattering! It's simplicity also means it can be dressed up or down, and it would look really nice on a night out :)

'Indiana' Blue Paisley Shirt - £42.00 (£33.60 with discount code 'floraldanielle')
I love paisley! This shirt is such a nice Spring colour too, it's making me excited for sun!

How I spent Valentines #4 with Joe :)

Firstly, apologies for the lack of blog posts! I swear each of my posts nowadays starts with this sentence, and it's because I really don't have the time to blog as much as I would love to :(. I had so much uni work this term including two projects and an essay, so I was very thankful to hand it all in on 15th February. Even though I didn't get to see Joe for actual Valentines day, he came and visited this weekend which was nice! :) We went for a day of shopping and he did some photography around Norwich as it has lots of nice little quirky buildings and people! You can have a little nosey at his work here if you like :)

I got these little bits on actual Valentines day. The rose was a gift from my lovely housemate Amy and I bought the pillows from the Primark sale for only £1.50! :)
 Black polo neck midi dress* - Karma Clothing
Statement embellished and studded necklace - Miss Selfridge

I absolutely love this dress that I was kindly sent to me from Karma Clothing. I have a burgundy polo dress without sleeves that I love so I thought I would get myself the black long sleeved version. It was very cheap at only £8.99 so I wasn't sure how good the quality would be, but I was very pleased to find out that it was a nice, thick figure-hugging material which is very flattering. It can be dressed up with a nice necklace and heels, or be dressed down with a denim jacket and Vans. I just checked the website and have seen that it is currently on sale for £7.95 so go get yourself one too! :)

The necklace I'm wearing is my new favourite too. I never usually wear big necklaces but I thought this one could go with both button up shirts and polo necks. I grabbed this from the Miss Selfridge sale for a bargain £1.50! There was loads of things on sale for that same price so go check out your local store as soon as possible :)

Some little instagram piccies from the weekend :) I bought Joe the little gingerbread couple and he made me this yummy chocolate heart cake!

I was also sent these cute little chocolates from Chocolates for Chocoholics* to try out with Joe over our Valentines weekend. They were all really yummy but my favourites were definitely the Butterscotch Cupcake and the Lemon Slice. You can get them in these little boxes for only £3.75 here and they would be a perfect little gift for Mother's Day or any upcoming birthdays :)

Thanks for reading :)
Hope you all had a lovely Valentines day however you spent it!

Wednesday wishlist one :)

I should be getting on with my ridiculous amount of uni work due in in 10 days, but I've come across so many lovely bits this week that I couldn't not put them into a blog post :). I'm gonna start doing a weekly Wednesday wishlist from now on too!

How ridiculously cute?! Harriet has a whole range of hand drawn dogs on iPhone cases, make up bags etc, go check them out! :)

I've literally heard nothing but good things about this mascara. It's quite a lot for a mascara but they do last for a long time so I'll just call it an investment ;)

I've got Benefit High Beam liquid highlighter but I'd really like to try out a powder highlighter. I've heard really good things about this one, and at £10 it doesn't break the bank!

I've had my eye on this jumper for ages. I think I'd prefer a jumper version rather than a t-shirt. I'd like to wear it with a cute little collar coming out of the top :)

My friend Amy from uni ordered these leggings, and I've wanted them ever since! They are from America though so the postage might be quite a lot, and depending on how much you order you may need to pay custom charges so be wary before you make a massive order :). I wish they stocked them somewhere in the UK though, £12.52 is a bargain!

I really want to get myself some new rings and especially some above knuckle rings. This teardrop one from Dixi is gorgeous :)

I've been obsessed with iamVibes clothing since I found them through twitter. Until recently they had a lot of sold out stock, but they've now restocked it all and I'm tempted to buy the whole shop!

As you all know, I'm obsessed with hamsa hands. Long story short, they remind me of a necklace my mum used to wear when I was young and me and my sister want matching tattoos of it. This t-shirt design is so lovely and intricate! :)

Lastly is this gorgeous pendulum necklace from Empty Casket. I've loved this brand for ages and want most of the things on their website, but I was particularly drawn to this necklace after seeing it on Robyn's blog. You can change the stone to go with each outfit you wear which is perfect - seven necklaces in one! :)

Thanks for reading :)
Do you have any of these on your wishlist?

Lash Boutique fake eyelashes :)

I've always been a fan of fake eyelashes and love how they can make your whole face look different for a night out! I was kindly sent these eyelashes from Lash Boutique to try out and I wanted to save them for a good night out! I recently dyed my hair ombre for the second time and it went really auburny, so I thought my first night out after that would be a good time to wear them - a whole new look! The lashes are worn and loved by the TOWIE girls, and are so reasonable priced, I would definitely purchase myself some more for special occasions! :)

Fake eyelashes - £6.99*

They came in a very cute little box which I have kept for eyelash glue and other little eyelash bits :). They came with eyelash glue in them, which was an almost black liquid which I liked because I always get paranoid that white glue isn't going to dry clear and will be really obvious! They were surprisingly easy to put on and didn't leave a horrible sticky mess if you had to take them off to re-adjust the positioning of them, which I have to do multiple times when applying lashes!

Even though they're quite long, I think they looked really natural and not ridiculously obvious. I can't stand it when you wear fake eyelashes and it feels like you have a butterfly on your eyelid, so I was thankful that these were really light and I totally forgot I was even wearing them by the end of the night! I have kept them safe and will definitely wear them again as they have lasted well and the glue hasn't left them all sticky and bent out of place :)

Thanks for reading :)
