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!

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

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. Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18 Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14 Other items I considered buying: This grey jewelled clutch bag ca

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
