Recent buys :)

Here are a few items that i picked up recently that never got mentioned :O

i had nothing to wear for a night out - aha - happens every time - but i had no time to go anywhere other than my local ASDA :) Just my luck, i found 2 dresses that i couldn't decide out of so i brought both. They were only £8 each :) The other one is in the wash - maybe it'll appear in an OOTD post sometime. This floral print one is really nice on :) Maybe i should give ASDA a chance in future!

This is a jumpsuit from primark. It was £13 which personally i think is too much for Primark. i don't like to spend more than about £8 on one item from there as i feel it'd just be worth buying it from a 'better' shop. But, my mum convinced me to get it and it's actually really nice on although a bit short on me :S The picture doesn't do it any justice!

This top was also from primark - £8. I really like studs as they make things a bit edgier ;) It'll look good over leggings as it is long.

If you saw my sunglasses post, you will know that i was breaking a lot of my nice sunglasses :( So, i decided to invest in a pair i really liked and get them a case :) The sunglsses were only £5 at ASDA and they actually suit my face :) Then, a few days later i waas queuing with my friends in H&M when i saw a basket full of sunglasses cases for 50p - yes 50p!!! FULL ON BARGAIN! i have a case from Topshop that i paid £6 for!

Then, this flower headband is cute - £1.50 from a local shop :)

I ran out of Lush Imperalis Moisturiser, so more for convenience, i picked up an Olay set from the local chemist - wipes and cream :) I think i'll probably go and repurchase imperalis though. The Olay has an SPF factor in and its pretty good but not massively impressive.

Finally, this Herbal Essences conditioner - it smmells lush but does nayone else find it makes your hair go greasy quicker???



  1. Oh my gosh, I totally agree with you, it does! This shampoo and conditioner line is extremely moisturizing... I still use mine but only when I feel like moisturizing my hair and whenever I have no plans to go out the next day.

    I am actually going to be doing a review on these soon.:D

    Happy Friday!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
