I’m wearing Urban Outfitters fox tshirt, New Look rust shorts, Primark brogues.

Sorry for the blurry pic- my lighting is quite bad at the moment so non flash pics aren’t so good.

Finally felt comfortable to wear my rust shorts today. I love this colour, I’m so excited for Autumn now.

Flash of green


I’m wearing New look sheer blouse, Peacocks palazzo pants, Primark green bra

Again, sorry for the rubbish pic, only remembered just before bed, and flash was the only way I could show my bra. I wore this for drinks and food on Saturday night. Love the sheer top/bright bra look. These trousers are possibly my favourite item of clothing at the moment. They’re perfect when you want to look a little smarter or dressier.

Nail fail!

I was up for some more nail art this weekend and was inspired by Bicky’s gorgeous post. I only had white crackle so I thought I’d try an orange/coral version. It was vile and a total fail but I thought I’d show you anyway.

I started by painting my nails white as a base and added splodges of different pinks, corals and oranges to each nail.


Colours- NYC Sprint Street, Models own Fuzzy peach, Barry M Pink Flamingo, Asda Magical and Sunset Orange.

I then applied the Barry M white crackle


Ugh I hate it. I gave it one day, removed and applied a nude instead. Lesson learnt. I don’t like crackles

A new dress and a matching eye shadow look

A new dress arrived for me from Ebay. I missed out on these River Island dresses last year and have been scouring Ebay for a while. Mine was £9.50. I love the tackilicious print.


I wore it out on Friday and decided to do a matching eye look using my Hello Kitty Too Dolly palette as I’ve probably only used it once or twice.

Make up used

Face- Bourjois Healthy skin foundation and concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte powder, Nars Orgasm blush
Eye- Urban Decay Primer potion, NYX jumbo pencil in Milk, MAC Too Dolly quad, Gosh Kohl in White, C2000 Fast stroke liner, Mac Kohl power pencil in Feline, Maybelline Colossal mascara, Mac Embark eyeshadow.

How to

1. Prime your eye and add a white base every where you’ll be applying a bright shadow. This helps show the true colour
2. Highlight your inner corner using Yogurt.
3. Apply Too Dolly all over your lid, blending at the edges and applying more in the centre of your eye.
4. Blend Romping all along your crease and above crease, winging out towards the end of your brow. Blend down slightly into the Too Dolly, mixing the colours as you blend.
5. Apply a little Stately Black into the very outer crease (the end of the wing you have created) and blend.
6. Draw a line of white kohl along your upper lashline.
7. Draw over this with black liquid liner, drawing two wings. One straight from your upper lashes, and one from your lower lashes.
8. Fill the space you’ve created with your two liner wings with white kohl.
9. Line lower lash line with black kohl and add mascara.

Spotty nails

I’ve never tried this before but decided to do on both my toes and my fingers!


Models own Snow White with Barry M Spring Green spots


On my toes- Models Own Snow white with Models Own Fuzzy Peach.

My toes are a lot less neat as I did them first and it was harder to get even spots but, all in all, I like the effect. I did the spots by dipping the end of a kirby grip into the polish.

Make up shopping


High street haul! My Boots finally had the Collection 2000 Cream puffs in so I had a little spend using my Boots points. I also finished 2 foundations this week (and have almost finished a 3rd) so I also Got Bourjois Healthy mix because I couldn’t ignore the great reviews and praise any longer.



Fairy cake


Powder puff


Cotton Candy


I was totally expecting to love either of the brighter colours the most but actually, Powder Puff is my favourite. It’s a slightly browner nude than I’d normally get but that makes it look far more grown up and wearable. The texture of these is a little odd. Very thick lipstick. It doesn’t go completely dry so it’s more moisturising than a stain. I like them so far.

I can’t comment too much on Healthy Mix. I put it on as soon as I got home, it seems to make my skin look nice ( quick pic below) but it hasn’t been trialled for a whole day yet.


Love all the products so far, big thumbs up!

New watch


My coral ebay watch arrived! Unfortunately, it’s not coral, it’s pink and it’s way too big for me so I can’t wear it. Any ideas on how to remove the plastic links to make it smaller?

Primark haul

I love it when shops start to get their new season stuff in. I treated myself to a little Primark haul last week and here’s what I got.

photo 1

High waisted jeans. I used to have a pair that I loved but eventually had to throw them out as the zip broke. I’ve tried and hated the Topshop ones but these Primark pair fit well. I’ve worn them 3 times already!

photo 2

This mustard shirt is perfect to throw on when I can’t be bothered. It’s comfy enough to wear to work but still looks good.


I adore both of these rings but unfortunately, they’re both a bit big so I can’t see me wearing them :(

Pretty in pink


I’m wearing New Look dress, Peacocks belt, Primark tights and shoes

This is probably my favourite dress at the moment. It’s flattering and the print is really pretty so it’s effortless to look nice in it. Skater dress, tights and shoes has to be my all time favourite look.

Another new lipstick

I caved and bought another this week. I HAD to have this after reading Lily’s(Beauty’s bad habit) post. For under £3 on Ebay, I got Stargazer 106- Neon Red.

I’ve been trying to get a lipstick in a particular colour for a while now and thought that this was it. Unfortunately it’s nothing like I want but it’s a gorgeous colour all the same.

If you’ve seen a lip colour similar, then please let me know. The colour I’m after is a bright mix of pink and coral. I thought Mac Costa Chic was the one but it’s too orange. It’s very similar to the colour on Francine in American Dad and I’ve def seen Khloe Kardashian wearing a similar colour

Day at the Races

photo 1

Last Saturday a few work girlies and I went to Ascot for the day. Although I had really bad tooth ache al day (the onset of a wisdom tooth infection) it was still really fun to get dressed up and do some betting.

It was probably the best people watching place I’ve been to. Loads of dresses and hats to ogle at and lots of nice men in suits to ogle at too!

photo 2

For the day I decided to wear some clip in extensions with a poof and a cream corsage (I wanted a ridiculous hat but really couldn’t justify the price!) I ended up taking the clip ins out half way through the day to ease the tension on my head but the poofiness left it looking ok!


I thoroughly recommend a day at the races- it was a great day out and I’m looking forward to next year already!

Viva Las Vegas!

In my last post I mentioned that we decided to have a big Vegas holiday again next year. I found a great deal for 2 weeks in March, but I’ve been persuaded to hold off until Oct/Nov time so I can go to my dream hotel- The Venetian. We had a big 2 week Vegas holiday back in 2008 and I’ve wanted to go back ever since.

For me, Vegas was the ultimate holiday destination. Shopping, eating, drinking, dancing and gambling, all in luxurious surroundings. To celebrate, I thought I’d post some pics from our previous trip to show you why I love it there.


My dream hotel has indoor and outdoor canals complete with gondola rides!


Nearby you can transported to Paris!

Our enorm hotel


Complete with enorm King sized bed


Go to a club 52 floors up, that has a terrace over looking the strip

This time I plan to buy a lot more make up, visit the CCO in the outlets, see Penn and Teller, go to RokLasVegas and be braver whilst gambling.
