The Shades of Summer

Brown Tortoise Shell Retro Sunglasses - River Island - £10
A few years ago, I went through a stage where I owned about 12 pairs of sunglasses that I had on rotation throughout the summer. A couple of years and move to uni later, this collection was drastically streamlined and I stuck to one pair of H&M beauties since. However when this summer arrived, I found that they had cracked all around the frame and were a bit unwearable, which led me on the hunt for a replacement pair.

Countless online searches later found me this little pair which I have been loving since I got them for my birthday! I have a pretty small face, which is pretty much a perfect sphere so big oversized glasses don't really suit me, so I stuck to the simple wayfarer design and the tortoise shell brown I was already used to. I can see these lasting for many summers to come, and hopefully, if this weekend's weather is anything to go by, they will get a lot of use over the next couple of months as well!

What sunglasses are you rocking this summer?

Rita Ora for Rimmel Nail Polishes

Monday, 12 May 2014

Rita Ora for Rimmel - L to R: Breakfast in Bed; Lose Your Lingerie; Pillow Talk.
Rita Ora is the most recent addition to Rimmel's celebrity ranks, joining Kate Moss. The songstress has collaborated with Rimmel to release a number of lip crayons and 60 second nail polishes, in some great shades. Admittedly I've not tried the lip crayons - I don't know how many more lip crayon releases I can take - but some of the nail polishes really caught my eye.

The Style Update #1

Wednesday, 7 May 2014


I don't very often post about style on Tiny Alis these days, (I think my last Fashion themed post was last summer) but recently I've been feeling a bit of a style overhaul coming on, and purchasing a few things here and there to give my wardrobe a bit of an update. Now I won't be delving into the world of outfit photos again anytime soon - I just don't have the space - but I may post key pieces every now and then to show you what sort of thing I've been investing in.
