Primark S/S12 collection.

The warmer months are approaching, so we can finally indulge ourselves in the new Primark spring/summer collection. Full of vibrant prints, perfect pastels and chic tailoring, Primark are definitely upping their game! Get me to Primark now!

Here are some sneak peaks of the new collection:

(DRESS, £17. BAG, £8.)
I love the shape of this dress, and how it mixes two of my favourite trends for S/S12, sheer blouses and floral prints. It's such a flattering shape as well!
The bag is also so nice, and can be used night or day! And such a bargain for £8!

(DRESS, £17.)
I love the discreet cut out detailing on the back! The dress is such a nice shape as well, perfect for summer!

(DRESS, £13.)
Relive the swinging sixties in this lovely and quirky shift dress! The bird print is really cute too!

(BLOUSE, £8. SKIRT, £12.)
The car print has transported itself from the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana to the shelves of Primark. If you're daring, you can wear the two prints together, or separately for the slightly less daring. Either way, it looks quirky cool and totally on trend!

(DRESS, £17.)
This dress is so pretty, I think I've fallen in love. I love the mix of colours!

(DRESS, £17.)
This Taylor Swift-esque dress is perfect for summer! I love the chiffon material and it's so girly, you can just picture yourself skipping through a field full of long grass under the shining summer sun!

I love how Primark has taken a masculine outfit and made it feminine by adding pastel shades! I LOVE!

(BLOUSE, £12. TROUSERS, £12.)
I absolutely love this 70's outfit! I love the floral print and the coral shade of the trousers!

I love the contrast between the black and white blouse and the bright pastel yellow trousers!

(SHORTS, £9. WEDGES, £20.)
This is a nice summery change to tailored trousers. The wedges are also an edgy edition to make your outfits more interesting.

(DRESS, £20.)
This dress is stunning. I love the edition of the risqué thigh-high slit in the side which is popular with the celebs on the red carpet.

Screen Actors Guild Awards 2012.

Hollywood's A-listers flocked to the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

Here are my favourite looks from the night:

Angelina Jolie looked stunning in a black draped shining lamé Grecian-style gown by Jenny Packham. She kept the accessories to a minimum with just a simple clutch, bangle and earrings.

Stacey Keibler looked lovely in an elegant Marchesa black lace dress with a fishtail train. She also kept the accessories to a minimum with a simple black clutch. George Clooney looks pretty dashing himself in a midnight blue Giorgio Armani suit (who doesn't love a good bit of George Clooney?!).

Amber Heard donned a black cut-out gown by Zac Posen. I love the stunning silhouette and the oversized quiff hairstyle.

Hispanic beauty Sofia Vergara showed off her assets and added a pop of colour to the red carpet in this raspberry pink Marchesa gown teamed with purple Judith Leiber jewels.

Gleek Naya Rivera wore a stunning plunging silver glitter gown by Naeem Khan. I love how the plunging neckline contrasts with the skirt at the waistline.

Fellow Glee star Diana Agron looked beautiful in this bright pink Carolina Herrera gown. I love the belt cinching in at the waist, and the plaits are stunning.

I love the gold detailing on Viola Davis' Marchesa Grecian-inspired dress. I also love the skirt and the simple accessorising which seems to be a pattern throughout the celebrities' outfits.

I absolutely love Jayma May's black sequin Reem Acra dress. It contrasts well with her pale skin tone.

E! presenter Giuliana Rancic wore a beautifully stylish scarlet Basil Soda gown. It definitely has to be one of my favourites from the night.

Last but not least, big up Rose Byrne who ditched the dress tradition and donned a 70's style Elie Saab playsuit.

What did you think of the dresses at last night's festivities? Who was your favourite?

Competition wins and latest buys.

Today I received a lovely parcel from Dahlia and ROCK 'N ROSE! It was my competition win that I won a few weeks ago! Most of the jewellery I received I featured in yesterday's post here. I've also written about Dahlia in a post a while back here.

This is the packaging from the outside and some of the boxes the jewellery from ROCK 'N ROSE came in.

This love heart friendship bracelet is so girly and pretty. Great for layering up with lots of other bracelets.

This tea pots ring is so cute! It's such a statement ring, perfect for making a boring outfit interesting.

Yay yay yay! I finally got a scrabble ring! I've been wanting one for ages and when this arrived, I fell in love!

This floral headband is stunning. It's perfect for summer and adding a girly touch to an outfit!

These cute little purple earrings are perfect for wearing to school.

 This dress is so nice and girly! It's also so versatile, I absolutely love it! It also is really nicely cut so it makes you look slimmer as it cuts in at the waist!

Here are some of my latest sale buys:

This wing ring is so nice, I especially love how it covers two fingers.

I love these tribal bracelets I got from Topshop for only £3 (that's before the student discount!).
