•It's been too long since I last did a '5 things I'm loving' post so here goes! A collective list of looks, labels, products and pieces that I'm diggin for the moment and for the (non-existent) spring season in general:

1. Pretty in Peplum
Personally, the more frills the better! I love this trend and hope it never drops out of the fashion cycle for too long. Really wouldn't have thought I'd like the shape and emphasis as much as I do considering my hips aren't tiny HOWEVER, I can't get enough of the feminine silhouette a peplum piece adds to an outfit, what's not to love?! My favourite piece on the high street at the moment is this geometric print peplum jacket with Peter Pan collar from Topshop, pair with a super skinny pair of jeans or a tight fit pencil skirt and you're ready to go!

2. Nail Art (Still)
I find myself obsessing over blogs like several times a week though I can safely say I've sucked if I've ever attempted to copy a style. I can just about paint my nails so free hand drawing is a skill that needs to be praised. My fave looks at the moment are the buttery sweet shades of pale yellow and pink in the second photo that melt in to each other, soo summery. Are you guys any good at doing this on your own nails?! I need some tips!

3. Two-Tone Lips
It was Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics who created the two tone lip effect for the Emanuel Ungaro show a few years ago and though I'm far from brave enough to rock it, I'm still in total awe of how cool the 80s inspired look is. Apart from the odd experimental session (resulting in clown mouth for me), I've never actually seen anyone with two tone lips other than models on catwalks though some of the subtle shades I've seen lately are so soft and flattering, maybe I should just give in.

4. Accessorise Like Barbie
Don't judge me. I still count Barbie pink as one of my favourite colours. I love the bright and bold colour pop shades and having gone through phases of having everything from pink bedroom walls (given I was 13) to pink hangers in my wardrobe, I'm just about shaking the obsession off (just). I still love the subtler colours and though I don't wear pink at all these days, I'm injecting by way of accessory - I really can't avoid Barbs altogether.

5. Fashion Discoveries
There's a lot to be said for finding new labels and etailers that go beyond stocking the norm high street trend copies you see online. With that in mind I'm usually on the look out for any websites that stand out and the flavour of the week is definitely Modekungen. The Swedish label was founded in 2008, delivers worldwide and has some quirky/edgy/cool pieces in their collection (my top 3 picks below) which are stunning and also unlikely to break the bank - A God send as my shopping cart is spilling over as we speak!
