I just want to put it out there right now, Coconut Lane are the number one place right now to get all the cutest accessories. Life is all about the details and we all know that Instagram basically is life! I know this might be really sad, but I love having cute accessories that I know are going to make my Insta feed a million times better. Of course, accessories are also great to jazz up my everyday life too. I love swapping around my phone cases and having pretty bracelets to stack. Like I said, Coconut Lane have it all, everything you need in your life and for your Insta; I'm talking phone cases, jewellery, sunglasses, they ever do stationary and wall art which is just amazing! I'm literally obsessed and I'm constantly checking Coconut Lane daily as they're always adding new stock. Speaking of which a little birdie told me that some slogan sweaters might be making their way on there soon, totes amazing right? Before I get too carried away in my excitement, I just wanted to showcase off some of the bits I picked up recently so you guys can get more of an idea of just how nice everything is!
My favourite thing and an item that I'm obsessed with have to be my new sunnies. You just can't go wrong with a good pair of sunglasses and I love the way these ones look. They're the Cali Sunglasses and I think the purple reflective lenses are just gorgeous! I actually really like the shape of these ones too, I'm someone who has a really small head and so often I find sunglasses just make my face disappear, so its nice to actually find ones that fit me well and that look super stylish.
You guys must know by now that my obsession with mermaids are real and I love anything that has a mermaid vibe to it, so naturally I had to pick up this phone case. I love the slogan on this case, it's so me! Definitely one to pick up if you love your mermaids.
I also picked up another phone case. It's one of the Kylie inspired light up selfie phone cases, Honestly guys this phone case is insane! You just flick a switch at the back to light up the sides of your phone and you have perfect lighting every single time. I'm a big selfie obsessed lover, so this phone case means I can snap that shot anytime of day. A perfect Instagram must! It's also great for nights out when the club lights are a little to dim, no need to miss out on those snap stories with this case!
Sticking with the beachy sort of theme, I also picked up this little anchor bracelet. It has a friendship bracelet style feel to it with its faux leather straps and the anchor is just the perfect size. I really love this and have been wearing it daily.
Lastly and by no means least, I picked up some of the Coconut Lane wall art. To be honest, I don't have a room where these will look good hung up. I mainly bought them to be background props for my blog. As a lot of you are bloggers yourselves, you will know exactly what I mean when I say the struggle is real! I always get so bored of my props when taking blog pictures and thought these would be the perfect accessory to jazz up some of those posts.
Seriously this is only a snippet of what Coconut Lane have up for grabs (and what my bank balance could afford lol). I love everything that I picked up and I know you guys are going to love everything on there just as much as me! Whats better still is that I have a discount code you can use which gets you 20% off everything at the till, so theres no excuse not to treat yourself! Just use the code sunshine20 every time you want to shop there. Your welcome :)
Let me know what you plan on picking up?

Please say that I'm not the only one who is excited that NYX is now available at Boots? I love this brand being so accessible to me, even if my bank balance doesn't! A few months ago I deliberately went online shopping at Boots just for NYX and I tell you I had a field day adding all sorts of makeup goodies to my online basket, it's such a satisfying feeling don't you think? As you guys know I'm a sucker for a lipstick or two, especially when that lipstick is liquid, has a matte finish and is in a nude shade; You can pretty much guarantee that I'll want it and it has my name all over it. For what seemed the longest of time, I was lusting over the new NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks; a whole range that it dedicated to all different types of nude shades. I had to pick up a few to add to my lipstick collection and see what all the fuss was about; I tell you I am obsessed lol. These are some of the nicest lipsticks that I've tried in a long time, if you've seen any pictures of me over on Instagram or Snapchat, you can guarantee that I'll be wearing one of my Lip Lingeries in it. I love them so much I thought I'd share with you the ones that I picked up, so you can see what they look like close up and once on.
Exotic is one that I've been reaching for a lot, it takes a whole new twist on the nude lip as I actually find its got quite a red/pink tone to it. It's really nice to find a nude shade that actually adds some warmth to your lips and I love how rich and opaque the colour is. When I want a nude with a little more sass, this is the one that I will reach for.
Bedtime Flirt is easily the most wearable nude shade that I picked up. Its your classic nude and great for everyday wear. I find that it has a slight pink tone to it, which makes it feel a little more girly and feminine. It's dark enough that it doesn't wash my lips out, but not too bold at the same time.
Embellishment is the one shade I wanted from the collection, but the one that took me forever to get my hands on as it was constantly sold out online. Its a recent addition to my makeup bag, but already I love it. This nude is like no other I own and I have to say its absolutely stunning. It has a greyish/purple tone to it. I was drawn to it as it reminds me a little bit of Lime Crimes Cashmere, although I've never actually tried it so can't fully compare. However this ones probably a little less grey and a little more purple, which actually I prefer. It's something that's really different for me, but I am so obsessed with this shade, so much so that I think it might be my favourite.
Honeymoon is the darkest nude that I picked up and I love wearing this when I'm trying to release my inner Kylie Jenner. I would describe this as a brown toned nude and although its not the darkest brown in the Lip Lingerie collection, its definitely quite dark on me. I think I can pull this nude off just about, but I wouldn't dare to go any darker.
Overall, I love these lipsticks. I love how opaque they are, how easy they are to apply and their matte finish means I'm totally winning! They are long lasting, but I find that they can wear quite quickly after food and drink so a re application is needed, but nothing major there. I really want to add some more to my collection, but I don't know if I can justify buying anymore nude liquid lipsticks right now!
Let me know what shades you like and if you have any that I don't please let me know how you're getting on with them.
