Get Naked’d!

 For a change, this post is dedicated to Beauty. If I get positive comments then i’ll probably write a few more, after all, my list of pending makeup purchases is never ending…

 If you haven’t already heard of Urban Decay, then I hope this post helps to enrich your life in the same way mine was when I first heard about them!! I’d walked past the counter countless times when in Debenhams or John Lewis and never once stopped at Urban Decay. They aren’t the leading popular brand for young girls compared to more affordable MAC, or well known Chanel.. But now I’ve a taste of their amazing cosmetics I am never turning back. 

 I present to you, the Naked Eye-Shadow Palates. They come in 3 amazing full flourished colour palates, Naked, Naked2 and Naked3. Each have a pretty display of natural and neutral colours and a few glittery shadows to brave at a night-time do. My friend Emily used the Naked2 palate on me, which is later what I purchased for myself. They really are beautiful shades, and gives you a natural look which is what I personally go for. 

 However, now I’ve been blessed with Naked2, Naked3 is reeeeally catching my eye. It will definitely have to wait though as each palate will set you back £37.00. On the plus side, you do get 4 free samples of their eye-shadow primers, each one lasting about 2 weeks if used in proportion. 

 Get them while you can and have glossy glistening lids forever more!

Cute Clutch

I recently visited a friend up in Edinburgh for a night out and I was blown away by her new selection of summer bags!! The one that caught my eye the most was an amazing white clutch from Zara for an absolute steal at £19.99. It has the words ‘Stressed’ printed on one side and ‘But Well Dressed’ on the other (describes me very well, mostly the stressed part haha). I rushed to Zara to get it to find its completely sold out everywhere, Edinburgh store, York store, Newcastle store.. No where to be found online either apart from eBay for a shocking £50. 

I finally managed to track one down in the Leeds store (result!), and got a friend to go buy it strait away for me and post it to me! Lets just say when I want something this bad I rarely stop until I get it. Total shopaholic syndrome..

Tezenis – Pretty, Affordable Underwear

 So last week’s London antics involved me looking in practically every female clothing shop on the whole of Oxford Street and I came across this really great underwear shop called Tezenis. At first glance I thought it would be really overpriced, like most underwear shops these days where you end up forking out £35 for a new white bra that turns grey after 3 washes! But this was amazing!!

 They have simple t-shirt bra and brief sets for around £9.99 to £14.99 or if you fancy something more flirty and fabulous they have really cute lacy bra’s for £14.99 in balconette, halter neck and low cut. 

 I’ve posted a few photo’s and a link to their website below, although you cannot order anything online. Hope you like them as much as me!!

Spring Prints

 The spring season is finally approaching, and I can’t be more excited about it! FINALLY we can leave the house without a jacket (I’m targeting all UK residents here!). After visiting London last week I took full advantage of being in the southern heat and braved bare legs, spring colours and most of all fawned over the spring prints!

 I had only been off my arriving train 10 minutes and my mum and I were already in American Apparel, (not even the proper shop either, the small one in Kings Cross that is the size of large box!). Of course, I bought something. Living in the North you don’t get the luxury of having actual American Apparel stores.. 

 They have the most amazing spring prints in at the moment, if you haven’t already looked, you NEED to. I settled on a cute tight cropped tee in a pink ditzy print although i was really drawn to the flamingoes and big sunflower shirts. I also added on the matching scrunchie to my top as you can never go wrong with a scrunchie (future post definitely being made about them!). 

 I also advise everyone to follow the americanapparel Instagram account as the regularly show you outfit combinations and how to wear all their spring line!

Hope you enjoy the spring print photos!!

The Shift Dress

Definitely one of the trends that is seeming to become more popular by the day! Personally, I never thought I could wear a shift dress. My waist is a lot smaller than my hips therefore they usually hang unflatteringly from my chest. However, I tried on my housemates green Topshop strappy shift and thought hmm, maybe I could wear these. A week later, I now have two and really want to buy a third!!

Topshop and River Island are displaying loooads of these dresses right now, however Missguided have lots of pretty ones for well under £25! Ill post both of the ones i’ve purchased below, which of course are both black. I really want to get the Missguided one in baby blue, however there are no size 6′s left! Sob sob! 

If you notice they come back in stock: TELL ME.

Braving the Blahnik.

Hangisi 105 Satin Pumps in Blue

So, I am having a casual midnight on-line shoe browse and come across these beauties by Manolo Blahnik which I can’t help but post. You may recognize them as the statement shoes Carrie Bradshaw bought and placed in her new wardrobe from the first Sex and the City film. The word flawless springs to mind! The shoes come in 9 fabulous colours and black, is of course, my favorite. They can be yours for £624.11 (how precise!) from the saksfifthavenue website!

Last post today, I swear!
