I have just placed an M&S order, and wanted to alert you to a few finds and the beauty box offer!
Starting with my most exciting purchase which is really random and nothing at all to do with clothes, but I thought I would share it anyway!
Garden Parasol – Was £79 now £63.20
I also bought these slides which I ordered a while ago and completely forgot to pick up, until I saw them on Wardrobe Icons this week. Always nice to get affirmation that you have chosen well by those in the know! I thought they might be uncomfortable, as often slides hurt my feet because the base is heavy, but they are surprisingly light on. I haven’t worn them for a full day yet because I am still trying to decide between black and the oyster. Pair with tailored shorts or culottes and a white linen shirt for an understated chic summer look.
I have been trying out various sports bras from M&S, as the one I was wearing was so uncomfortable it actually gave me shoulder ache. Of all the bras I have tried my favourite is this high impact one, which I have in the grey. It’s so comfortable I forget I have it on. If you take high impact exercise, I highly recommend it.
In one of my stories this week, I mentioned that I found strapless bras really uncomfortable to wear. Two people messaged me, to say that they had had the same problem with strapless bras until they discovered this one at M&S. I haven’t tried it myself, but I am going to, because I suddenly thought perhaps it was the underwire in my strapless bra that I was finding so uncomfortable, because I happily wear strapless bikinis under my dresses on holiday. I particularly like the shape of this one, if you are wearing a dress with a deep v, your bra won’t show.
Another item that will transform your summer wardrobe, is a slip. Wear them under any slightly see-through dresses. This is a 2 pack for £16. Bargain.
I have had my eye on this navy wrap skirt for a while and was very disappointed when I tried on my size and it was too big (8) It’s a beautiful skirt and would be so useful in your summer wardrobe and I think it would work just as well in the office as it would on a summer holiday. It also comes in two different lengths.
And the best bit of all, if you place an order from home, clothes or beauty over the value of £40 you get this beauty box worth £105 for £10! Offer valid 22nd – 26th June.

How odd re the beauty box – I placed an order only two days ago (one of the items being the Panama hat you did a piece on on your last blog) and the order came to £75 but no beauty box appeared! Is it bad timing? Sad. 🙁
You have to pop the code in… write to them
I managed to get one of these beauty boxes yesterday and the pieces inside are great… all are useful and none I would hide at the back of my beauty drawer to never use x
That’s great to hear. I use the eyeko mascara so was thrilled to see that was in there! X
Woo hoo thanks Chloe – I dropped them an email today and I got a response about an hour later (on a Sunday too) saying that it did seem unfair that I didn’t automatically receive the box after spending this amount, so the very kind gentleman decided to get one sent out to me tomorrow! If you don’t ask you don’t get I guess!! x
Yay! Well done. Always good to ask xxx
Love the slides, I think I’d go for them in the Oyster colour, so pretty
I still have both… maybe I’ll just keep both… 😳
