Weve got some cute gift ideas for your girls this christmas and every girl is guaranteed to love these picks!
These cute message cards and attatched string bracelets is something sweet and thoughful that your bestie will love. Its a cute addition to any gift.
Which girls dont love bathbombs and accessories? Especially when they're from lush. Even the scent when walking past lush is an instant pull factor into the store. Or, if lush isnt your thing, then we have sweet smelling bath bombs in the boutique which also make beautiful gifts. These christmas themed bath bombs caught my eye straight away, how cute?
If your bestie isnt the bath bomb type of girl, replace the bath bomb with this bauble gift, which includes a stack ring and a choker necklace. And it also looks adorable as a gift, so its perfect.
Im loving these ideas already, and its even better that all of these gifts are reasonable in price.
Heres also a selection of cute jewellery I've picked out which is perfect as a gift for your bestfriend. I love these sequin chokers, they're so glam and glitzy. Our traditional and popular stack bracelets are also so ideal as a gift, as you can choose the charm you would like to add onto it, you can get a cute bestfriend charm or stay festive with a christmas charm.
And last but not least, which girl doesnt love recieving make-up as a gift? It is one of the easiest presents for every girl, as they are guaranteed to love it, make-up is deffinetly one of my favourites to recieve as a gift! Ive chosen this MAC highlighter to feature as it is my ultimate favourite piece of make-up at the minute. If your bestie loves highlighting, then this is deffinetly one of my reccomendations. If not, then why not try a lipstick and liner? Or a new eye pallette?
Also, if you get your bestie a range of presents and are looking for a way to give them, why not create a small gift basket? This is one of my fave ideas for giving gifts, theres nothing better than putting together an adorable basket full of goodies for your bestie!
I hope this has helped you ladies if you have been stuck on what to treat your bff to this christmas! There will be a lot more festive blog posts to come so keep your eyes peeled and we would love to see your pictures of your DaintyLou buys this christmas, so keep tagging us on Instagram:
Hey girls, I hope you enjoyed the first halloween blog post, and as promised, here's part 2! Halloween is only a week away and im guessing that most of you are pretty excited! I would love to know what your plans are and what your dressing up as if you are, so feel free to tell us!
For this post, Ive chosen some of my favourite spooky fashion picks, along with some beauty bits for this scary time of the year! Everyone loves the Autumn colours, in beauty and in fashion...
If you havent got your halloween outfit yet and want something classy that still gives it the halloween vibe, check out the beautiful range of halloween stock in the boutique. These are my favourites that Ive picked out. Im loving the wine colour at the minute for the AW season, and it works especially for halloween, or you can go dark and simple with the black colours. Ive also picked out these 2 pairs of stunning heels that would look perfect with either of these outfits. Dress up a black outfit with these sexy red heels, stay all black with these gorgeous black heels, or style them with a wine coloured dress to mix the colours about, either way you will look gorgeous. If your the type of person that likes to mix and match their outfits, I would personally go for these amazing leather look pants, along with the red heels and a red top to keep the look together.
Moving onto the beauty, Ive chosen a few of my favourite nail varnishes in these halloween themed colours. Barry M Gelly is my all time favourite and these colours are perfect to wear with any of these outfits. My personal favourite is the 3rd along.
1. Blood Orange. 2. Satsuma. 3. Black Cherry. 4. Black Currant.
Ive also selected a few of everyones favourite lipstics. MAC. Ive chosen these dark colours which will look perfect on halloween. I dont tend to suit dark lipsticks, so halloween is probably the one time of the year when I could get away with wearing these shades. My favourite is the 1st one.
1. Antique Velvet. 2. Dangerous. 3. Matte Royal. 4. Instigator.
Wishing you all a happy halloween!
We would love to know what you would like to see us blogging about, give us feedback and ideas of what you want to see on our DaintyLou blog!
Halloween At DaintyLou: Part One
Hey ladies, I cant believe that we are through September already and well into October! Which can only mean one thing; Halloween is approaching! Because there is so much to talk about for halloween, Im splitting the blog post into two, so keep your eyes peeled for another post showcasing my favourite halloween trends..
Whatever your dressing up as for halloween, there is guaranteed to be some sort of accessory from Daintys Jewellery range to style with your outfit. There is a selection of the stack bracelets and rings, earrings, and necklaces, all with a selection of different halloween charms.
I adore all of this cute jewellery, and some of it can even be worn on a daily basis, for example, these halloween plain coloured stack rings. I would wear these on a daily basis, especially the black stone ring (which is so similar to one of my favourite pandora rings, but for so much cheaper!) The stack jewellery is totally one of my favourite things about DaintyLou and Ive loved it all ever since I seen them! So the idea of the new collection for halloween is too good, and Im sure even more festive occasional stock will approach towards christmas!
This is part one of my halloween blogs, so keep your eyes peeled for part two coming soon also, which will include my favourite halloween trends and outfit ideas, along with my favourite beauty trends for the halloween season!

Beauty Bits: What We Love
Hey girls, todays post is a different one from the usual fashion posts, we thought its time we did a post on beauty and what items we adore that feature in our make up bags!
I've been adoring make-up lately and I cant stop browsing and craving for new bits and bobs, but heres my favourite items at the minute which are currently home in my make-up bag...
All of these items are what I couldnt live without! Most of them are used on my day-to-day basic face and the rest come out for occasions and when I am wanting to feel and look just that tad more glam (girls you know!)
My day-to-day products:
1. Mac Studio Fix Foundation in NW20.
2. Maybelline Better Skin Superstay Concealer in Light.
3. Benefit Hoola Bronzer.
4. Maybelline 24hour Powder in Sand.
5. Benefit Porefessional Primer.
6. Benefit Theyre Real Mascara.
7. Barry M Natural Glow Eyeshadow Palette.
8. Real Techniques Core Collection Brushes.
9. Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipliner in Velvet Beige.
10. Soap and Glory Lipstick in Plum.
Most of these products are my everyday wear, however I purchased this basic contour kit online from Ebay, as I was wanting to practise to contour, and considering this was only cheap, it is really ideal. I reccomend one of these if your starting out.. I then want to move onto something like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit. I also treat myself to the Mac Soft n Gentle Highlighter, as I had tested it out and fell in love with it, it gives that extra touch to your makeup.. Moving onto the lipstick, I purchased this S&G Plum last year and figured it was too dark, however Ive recently put it to use and blender it with a lighter lipstick (just a cheap one from boyes) and I love the colour the 2 create!
Anyway, this is my fave beauty bits for the moment, I would love to hear any of yours and any reccomendations on any other products!
Styled in Mustard
Hey ladies, I have recently just got back from my holiday so its time to write another blog post for you all, featuring another stunning outfit from my recent shoot in the boutique!
If you have read my latest post, featuring the stunning sequin statement, then you will know that there is some amazing summer pieces in the boutique.. If you havent read it, you can check it out here.
You will probably understand the quirky title of this post once you have seen the outfit.. Everyone loves abit of the mustard colour in their outfit, especially with this stunning top. It is a simple design, but the colour takes away the simplicity and gives it an amazing look.
We paired this stunning top with these Topshop denim jeans, and some black strap heels from New Look, to give it a "dressed up" vibe, rather than a casual look. We also added this beautiful clutch, which we werent too sure that would pair well with the top, with them being the same colour, however it looked perfect when styled together.
For those that arent too sure about colour matching too much, we also tried it with the same clutch, but in black. I also love this look with the black clutch as it is a good match to the heels, however I prefer the mustard clutch as well as the top. I love a lot of colour in an outfit! We also added the stunning gold cuff bracelet to accessorize the outfit, and the gold colour looks perfect alongside the mustard and the black.
Im loving this outfit, the colours are so eye catching and pair so well together, I'd love to know your opinion girls and see what other colours you would pair together for this look! Feel free to comment!
Pretty Heels and Sequins
Hey girls, hope your all having a brill summer! I went for another shoot day at DaintyLou the other day, so heres the first blog post of a few to come, showcasing one of my absolute favourite outfits from the photoshoot!
I adore this look so much, Ive been so eager to share it with you guys...
I totally fell in love with this as soon as I seen it and I loved it even better on. The lilac colour was so flattering and wasnt too "in your face", it was a nice pretty colour. Not forgetting to mention the sequin detailing on this dress, which is what creates the flattering "party" look. This can also be worn as a top but I preferably love it as a night look, with some heels and a clutch.
The back detailing on this dress is also an eye catcher as its simple but beautiful, with the tye top. I paired this dress with these cute New Look black strap heels, which gave it a perfect look as it wasnt too much detail in the shoes, so it kept the dress the main feature. To add a bag to this, I would add a black clutch bag, to keep it simple and to match the shoes. You can also purchase a series of clutch bags at DaintyLou, which will be featured in blog posts to come..
As you can see, the sequin detailing is so flattering and also very dressy. Its also extra special that these sequins have been added by hand. I personally wouldnt add too much jewellery to this outfit, as it is gorgeous as it is. I would maybe add a silver stack bracelet, along with some silver earrings and a small necklace, but nothing too big as it may disturb the look.
This dress is £38.00 and is so worth the money, I was urging to purchase this for my holiday but I have already spent too much money on holiday purchases (oops)!
Get the look now at DaintyLou...
Im going on holiday tomorrow so my next post will be due when I get back on some more of my photoshoot outfits!

The Little Blue Bag
We decided after working 7 days a week for weeks on end to go on an adventure to the Metro Centre. We haven't visited the metro centre for a while now and its really changed with new shops, a cocktail bar area on the upper floor and there was also really cool pop up shop stands on the lower floor.
Firstly we headed to House of Fraser to pick up the all important Mac Makeup supplies and we stocked up on the mac lipsticks 'Velvet Teddy' and 'Ruby Woo'. Then we headed to Boots to look for the new Kate Moss
Nude Lipsticks we had already purchased one of the colours but you can never have too many! and we love the nudes collection.
Then we headed to our other favourites Topshop, Paper Chase,
Pandora, The Disney Shop, Accessories, H&M, Zara, AllSaints, RiverIsland and Swarovski.
I then got treat to some Swarovski Crystal Jewellery
for my Birthday, I have always been more into Pandora or Links of London myself but I went into the Swarovski store in the Metro and they had so much choice!
So after I got treat to an amazing Swarovski Crystal Bracelet we came across a Models Own Pop up Shop in located on the lower floor and it was amazing!! All the nail colours that you could ever wish for so if
you are popping to the Metro I would definitely recomend
finding their pop up stand as I don't know how long it will be there for.
Then after grabbing some lunch we were all shopped out! We would defintely recommend going to the Metro if you are passing by or fancy a day out with all the new shops to choose from there is also so many new nice food places to eat and there a bar! thats always a plus! And with Free parking you can shop all day and not worry!
I wore Black Topshop Sandals with the Daintylou White Sleeveless Zara top show on our Model Sarah with jeans and a waterfall jacket from Newlook for a smart/casual look. Accessorised with Daintylou Jewellery and my black Mulberry bag.

Styled Like Kylie Jenner
Celebritites are total fashion icons, so weve been picking out some of our items that we think Kylie Jenner would adore, as everyone adores her and she is one of the celebs that girls are idolising these days for her amazing style!
Kylie looks amazing in stripes, which is why we think she'd love our off the shoulder stripe dress. Which is £28.00 and looks great styled up or dressed casual like kylie has.
We all know that she loves a good khaki outfit, so weve picked out these khaki statements available at DaintyLou which we would personally love to style her in!
This beaut nude dress is just £34.00 and looks so similar to this one Kylie is wearing, with the high neck detail. And we love how she has styled it with the brown jacket and black high detailed heels.
Ive also added abit of beauty into this post and chosen some Mac lipsticks which would look beaut on her to suit her famous lips! Ive gone for; Velvet Teddy, Taupe, Twig, Faux and Myth.
Get your Kylie look online and in store at DaintyLou..

Headbands and Hats; The Perfect Accessories
Accessories are just a must for every outfit, they make up the outfit and add the essential finishing touches. Headbands are a summer style statement at the minute and so are hats.. The summer season is beginning, especially with the beautiful weather we've had, so Ive picked out some style essentials on how to accesorize the perfect summer outfit.
Who doesn't love a pretty headband to style up an outfit, Im a person that loves wearing headbands as it makes such a big different to your look, it goes from a plain hairstyle to a gorgeous one as soon as you put them on. Im loving the headbands at DaintyLou, they are so pretty and colourful and are just £4.00 each. There are a number of ways to wear these headbands depending on your style, This is how to apply them:
They are so easy to put on; you can have them as a small bow (as seen on the step by step image and the golden headband), or you can have it as a big bow (as seen on the floral headband).
This is also another way you can wear them. I have demonstrated with this lovely golden headband. You can have the small bow, and you can have the knot, which is done by simply putting a knot into the headband where you want it, and then placing the knot at the front and tying it together around the back of the head.
This is also something I picked out. These hats always catch my eye when I see people wearing them, I think they add to an outfit so much and they are perfect for holidays and occasions, aswell as casual wear. I love the colour of this hat, it is such a bold and bright statement. I also like the style, it looks very elegant and classy. There is so much choice in accessories for the summer so be sure to pop into the shop or shop online.. I have also been modelling some gorgeous clothing, so keep a look out for some new stock popping up on the blog...
I recently purchased this pretty little floral top from DL and Ive been jumping at every chance to wear it. I went out for a meal last week so it was the perfect chance to style it up and wear it, I wanted to look nice but not too overdressed, and I felt this was the right little number..
This top is a perfect summer statement as the colours are so beautiful and the florals are so pretty, the blue of the top is such a lovely colour and it contrasts well with the bright flowers.
I decided to wear this with my denim blue jeans, as I wanted to style it up, but not too much, and as it is a dressy top already, it doesnt take much. I also wore a dark orange boobtube underneath as it can be seen slightly and it matches the orange florals of the top, along with this, I wore my lace bow pumps which are such a great colour match to the orange on the top and the boobtube. Also, as we all know that the typical British weather never makes its mind up, I decided to wear my creme lace kimono over the top. I love the amount of colour on this outfit, it adds such a summer look and I felt like it was the right attire for a family meal out..
I also styled this outfit with my flower statement necklace, my Michael Kors watch and my gold wire bracelet, aswell as my Pandora rings and my blue gem ring..
Floral Top: DaintyLou £18.99
Blue Denim Jeans: F&F Tesco around £15.00
Lace Bow Pumps: Primark £6.00
Creme Lace Kimono: George Asda £16.00
Flower Statement Necklace: CloClo London £12.99
Celeb Style Steals
Celebs are the total fashion icons at the minute and we are all constantly trying to steal their styles which we love.. Kendall and Kylie Jenner are deffinetly popular in this area, who doesnt love their style? I took a browse at some of DL's range and picked out my favourites, you can look like your style icons easily...
I have gone for something different rather than the Jenner sisters, I'm loving these white palazzo pants on Jessica Alba, they look perfect.. Palazzo pants are deffinetly a fashion statement at the minute, they are available to purchase everywhere, they are one of this years summer must haves.
I tried on these pretty white high waisted trousers at DL and they look so similar, I paired these trousers up with a simple plain black vest top along with this beautiful pink floral kimono.. You can easily recreate the Jessica Look in these trousers, and if you want to go the whole way, you can pair up a shirt just like hers, which will be available at a lot of stores..
Orange/Pink Floral Kimono: £19.99
Coloured Flower Necklace: £5.99
All Piece's at DaintyLou
Fringe detail is also popular in fashion at the minute, and we seen a lot of this on the celebs at Coachella. Gigi Hadid is looking fab in this brown suede fringe waistcoat and Vanessa Hudgens in the black fringe skirt.
This top is a perfect summer addition and it gives that festival look which people adore, this top paired with some denim shorts, or even jeans which I am wearing, looks lovely styled up. The print is also lovely and the warm colours are so complimenting.
Amber Floral Fringe Top: £18.99 DaintyLou
Jeans: £16.00 F&F at Tesco
To get the look even more, you can accessorize the outfit with one of DL's stunning fringe bags, available in light brown, dark brown, black and grey.. these give that coachella festival look which helps to create the style steal that your looking for. There is also so much jewellery to choose from, including; stack bracelets, friendship bracelets, chokers, rings, earrings and more.. shop now dolls.

DaintyLou has taken part in a competiton which involves a lot of the shops around town, and as you can see; it is simply to dress up the shop window to support Boro and the winner wins £500! I love how DL has styled up the shop window... keeping it classy and styling the Boro Football tops with DaintyLou's pretty clothing... The red Boro top has been paired with the stunning poppy skirt which comes in a two-piece with the matching bandeau top.. The blue Boro top has been styled with the lovely gingham shorts... These outfits look brill to support Boro!

Summer Accessory Picks
Summer is approaching which gives everyone an excuse to buy new jewellery for the summer, I have picked out some perfect picks for the season, new and available at DaintyLou. I love all things cute, and pretty, so these accessories will be perfect for anyone thats like me!
This pretty layered friendship bracelet is just gorgeous. I picked this bracelet because of the beautiful charms it features and the colours of it. I love the mix of the white and grey along with the silver and gold charms. These 2 colours look gorgeous with almost everything, as they are so neutral and elegant. This bracelet is simply stunning and would be a perfect gift for someone, due to the inspiring charms used, especially the "where there's a will there's a way" quote, as well as the infinity charm. This is a lovely message sent within the bracelet and is a lovely gift as a friendship bracelet. DaintyLou has a range of these pretty friendship bracelets, in a range of colours, there will be something perfect for everyone. These bracelets are just £3.99 along with free delivery, which is such a bargain..
I also picked out this beautiful silver elephant charm anklet. I love anklets, I am one of those people that constantly have one on, so I was so happy when I spotted this in DaintyLou. It is such a cute anklet with the elephant charms on and looks so pretty in general. It is also silver, which means it will look perfect worn with any outfit. This is really good priced at £6.00 each or on offer for 2 for £10.00. The range of anklets from DaintyLou will also make perfect gifts for people...
Along with the lovely new jewellery which I have picked out, I also picked out these pink scented candles from Dainty's Home. I love how girly the colour of these candles are as they just look so pretty, and its even better that they smell unbelievable too.. I am also a lover of candles, so I constantly have them burning in my bedroom, and I'm in love with the scent of these little tealights.. I also have some wax melts from Dainty's Home and they also smell gorgeous, theres so much choice to choose from! They also stock wax burners if your in need of one, at just £3.50..
Im also loving the other home items, available at DaintyLou, including the candle jars, at £5.00 in all different beautiful scents, which come in pretty little jars, as you can see from the shop display.. Theres such a cute range of home items to choose from!

It wont be long before the summer season comes around and suitcases will be getting packed ready to jet off somewhere hot. Personally, I find it so hard to decide what to take when packing for a holiday, I always come to the conclusion that I have taken too much of somethings and not enough of others. I think every girl must have this problem, and I always end up layed on the top of my suitcase so that it will shut... (this is clearly a girl problem)
I have put together a selection of some of my favourites to take on holiday to create the perfect looks. I love all different colours, whether it's bright and bold or whether it's simple and dark. Here, I have chosen a selection of dark colours which have caught my eye, I would love to style these up to create an amazing holiday style.
I love how these items look together, the colour scheme of each item fits in well with each other and they would look flattering paired with eachother.

The Daisy Bikini from Embellish By Lucy is one of my personal favourites, I love the flower detail added which makes it so much more attractive than a standard bikini, It has such a summer vibe to it and the white colour of the flower is stunning and elegant, It is also available with gold detail.
Daisy Bikini- £22.99
2. I have also added the Daisy Kimono to this look to create a stunning co-ordinated outfit. This Kimono with the Daisy Bikini would look perfect on the beach or around the pool. Or even on a night time, paired with some shorts and a crop.
Daisy Kimono- £18.99
3. Another item which would look good with the Daisy Kimono is the Halter Top from Embellish By Lucy. You can see how well the two look together, the top is a simple design yet the kimono dresses it up to look stunning. I would also pair the top with some frayed denim shorts and some brown boots to create the festival look.
Halter Top- £15.99
4. Bags are a top accessory which I think is essential to every outfit. Especially this Black Marlee and Fee Clutch. I love how simple the design is with the letters added onto it, however it will instantly dress an outfit up, I think clutch bags are the way to go if your looking to create a classy style. This bag also comes in white and both of them will look lovely with this holiday outfit.
Marlee and Fee Black Clutch Bag-£25.00
5. Jewellery is also an essential accessory. I have chosen the Grey Flower Earrings to add to this outfit as the colour is so pretty. As I have chosen dark colours for this style, I thought I would choose grey earrings as they blend in with dark colours, however it is a lovely, girly colour. These also come in pink.
Grey Flower Earrings- £3.50
6. The Rose Gold White Sapphire Ring is also one of my favourites. It has a mix of gold, silver and black onto it which is why it will look so nice accessorized with this outfit.
Rose Gold White Sapphire Ring- £5.00
7. The last piece of jewellery I have selected is the Black Bohemian Chain Collar Statement Necklace. I love the look of this statement piece as there is a selection of colours used rather than just one, which gives it more opportunity to alternate with outfits. The grey, black and gold colours featured on it will look amazing with the other items in this outfit due to the colour match fitting so well.
Black Bohemian Chain Collar Statement Necklace- £6.99
8.To finish off the look for this outfit, I have selected the Floral Weekend Bag. I love the floral pattern on this as it adds a vintage element to it and I have chosen the blue/grey coloured pattern due to the colour scheme of the outfit. This would be perfect as a hold-all on an aeroplane whilst jetting off on holiday! This also comes in red and pink.
Floral Weekend Bag With Wheels- £18.99

On the spring/summer catwalk we have seen a lot of 3D funky trims for SS15, so I decided to collage some of my favourite tassel inspiration pictures for SS15 accessories! I adore pastels and this spring/summer there everywhere! I love these funky sunglasses, shoes and necklace to team alongside a more simplistic dress.
Inspired by our recent trip to the local craft store we bought lots of faux feather trims, pom pom trims and funky pastel fabrics to make some new pieces for SS15.
This bag was made from a faux feather trim and an existing new handbag,
we love the end result... super funky!
More DIY Pics coming soon on our next blog post dolls!

All that glam!
Floor-length gowns drenched in delicate appliqué, sequins and embellishments on a bed of lace and silk threads.. it can only be Haute Couture Spring Summer '15 by Elie Saab. If our bank balances could suffice, we'd gladly take every single mesmerising dress from the runway collection and wear them to any occasion that deemed appropriate.. But a girl can dream!
Backstage, the makeup looks were kept fairly understated and minimal, allowing the spotlight and attention to be kept on the ensembles themselves. A clean beauty base with slight contouring, accompanied by graphic black liner and a hue of grey shadow on the eyes. Brows were kept natural-like, and if anything brushed up to create texture. Lips were slicked with a sheer shade of coral, perfectly mimicking the sunset shades of the SS15 collection.
Recreate the look with our two favourite makeup products of the moment - NARS Sheer Glow foundation to create the perfectly prepped model-like complexion, and YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 'Peach Passion', the pretty encasing kinda makes up for the £25 price tag but we love it!
Which makeup trends will you be trying this upcoming Spring/Summer season?
