Your feedback please...

Hello to my lovely readers!

I'll be taking a break from Loved by Lizzi for a couple of weeks.

I would really love for you to spend a few minutes completing a survey all about my blog, as I will be using this time to reflect on what new and exciting stuff I can post for you in the future.

To make sure I hear what you have to say, complete the attached survey (whilst having a cuppa I hope!) - just simply click here.

Thank you, as always!

Maxi Maxi Maxi - Summer 2014

Getting ready for my beach holiday - an essential item that can take you from poolside, to lunch to dinner - is the Maxi dress.

Stylish as ever, it can be worn with flip-flops, sandals or wedges - it's guaranteed glam!

I've recently purchased a few, and cannot wait for the weather to hot up so that I can start to wear them.

Check this one out from Oasis - I purchased it in orange ideal if your natural colourings are Autumn or Spring they also had yellow and khaki too!  If your colourings are more cool base then they also have it in black.

Made of jersey and only £28 - it comes with the belt which is great to give definition around the waistline.

I also purchased this one from New Look, a bargain at £22.99, again it comes with the belt!

I'm also loving…

Wallis' Digital Floral Dress - bang on trend for this summer.  Was £48, now £38.40

I personally couldn't wear this one, as the colour wouldn't suit me, but if your a Summer or Winter then this would be perfect!  Lava Stripe Dress from Warehouse - Make sure you love it before buying it as it's £80!

Sensationail at Boots Chemist

Only a few weeks ago I blogged about how I loved the beauty treatment of Shellac Nails, and I'm still very much in love with the concept.

My nails are harder, they last longer and they look great!

When I watched the beautician at work, I did feel that most of what she was doing, I could do myself!  So at £30 a time, this treatment would soon get very expensive.

So I set about looking on the internet at what was available to buy in kit form and believe me there are lots! Most on eBay and Amazon were kits direct from the Far East, they were not cheap and my main concern about this was the LED lightbox, was it safe? and no warranty came with them.  

So I took advice from Social Media - I sent a note out to my Twitter pals and also to my close friends on Facebook - within an hour or two I had my answer.  Sensationail at Boots Chemist.

Similar price as the others, £69.99, although less nail colours in the kit - but good feedback from all and they all came back with the message that they liked the LED lightbox because they knew they could take back easily if it did not work.

So far I've only tested it on the French Manicure - which I will blog about later this month.

My thoughts - 10/10

Spring clean - Sort it, Bag it, Drop it off!

Twice yearly I move my clothes around between various wardrobes to make sure that I have my daily clothes in my main wardrobe.

I think most of us make that change from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter.  But like me, do you just keep moving them all around even though deep down you know you are not going to wear them - EVER!?

I've just spent the last few days going through all my clothes and being ruthless about clearing out those items I know I'm not loving anymore.  There's a lot to be said about having a spring clean, i feel so much better knowing that a) I don't have all this stuff anymore and b) that someone else is going to benefit.

I know I could have probably sold some of this on e-Bay - but this time round I just wanted to help other people.  I've had a few chuckles on some items because I seriously cannot believe that I bought it, let alone worn it! (although I'm sure it will suit its next owner ;) ).

So go on and have a go!  Make three piles, the really good stuff for friends and family to have, the ok stuff for the charity bins at supermarkets and then the bad stuff that simply needs to be binned.

You'll feel fabulous afterwards….I promise!
