Accessory of the day!

Who doesn't love to accessorize? I am honestly an addict. I always like to accessorize my outfits with watches, earrings, bracelets, bangles and rings as they are perfect for transforming an outfit. Anyway, my accessory of the day is the gem, chain and ribbon necklace below, which was a Christmas present from my cousins :) As you will have noticed, the high-street is full of jumpers embellished with necklaces, they are such a key trend this season as well as chunky chain necklaces, however as I don't have one of these jumpers yet, I had to improvise with today's outfit! :)

My Christmas in pictures...

Just a quick post to share with you my take on 'my week in pictures' and instead, I'm sharing with you an insight to what my Christmas was like! It always interests me to find out what other people get up too over the festive season so feel free to leave me a comment below :)
So, an explanation of my pictures... Judging by the festive Santa hat you can tell I am crazy about Christmas and started my festivities wayyyyy back in November! Hehe, following these are my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day pictures, including; Christmas morning, Christmas dinner, my amazing kittens opening their prezzies, a cheeky picture of my Christmas Day outfit, everyone needs one right? and one of my favourite presents, my new Michael Kors watch, I absolutely adore it. Also I have included a picture of my gingerbread creation! Such a tricky job, but I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house, yet never really got round to it, soooo much fun! :) Lastly is my plan for New Year's Eve, might not be everyone's idea of fun, but I'd rather watch my way through my favourite Christmas DVDs collection! Hope you all had a great Christmas, have an awesome 2014! :)

Christmassy bargain...

Today I finally took a trip to a shopping centre to have a little browse of the sales, wanna know my secret? Although I adore shopping and fashion I hate sales. I do love a bargain but I cannot be bothered to sift through rails and racks of last seasons clothes that nobody wants... Hence why they are in the sale...it is also always super busy! Today though I found the most perfect item. Reindeer print jogging bottoms, with silver glitter and red gems, being the Christmas obsessed girl I am I had already spotted these at Topshop before Christmas but refused to pay £35, so today when I spotted them for just £15, just by chance, I had to buy them! Loveeee them! Moral of the story, give the sales a chance...

Festive Nails: Silver Fox

Eugh I have had soooo much on recently it's unreal! Like seriously, why does my University insist on doing exams before Christmas? I literally feel like I have missed the whole build up to Christmas :( Anyways, between revision the other day I decided to perk myself up a but and add a little sparkly nail varnish to my finger nails to make me feel a little more Christmassy, who doesn't love glitter?! The one I am wearing below is a Models Own polish (Shade NPQ07- Silver Fox) which retails at £5 in the glitter collection which is available online at the Models Own Website and at some Boots stores. I personally love Models Own nail varnish as they have so many lovely nail varnish collections from glitter, to wonderland, fireworks to pastels, beetlejuice to neon, their shades are gorgeous and there is most certainly one out there to suit everyone! From the glitter collection I also have the pink, gold and purple polishes and I have found they work particularly well whether adding a little glitter on top of a normal colour or whether adding a couple of coats of glitter to achiever a super sparkly look, this glitter polish works so well! I definitely recommend this one because it isn't too watery like some and the glitter actually shows up, love it!

Oh My Gosh!- Babyliss Curl Secret Styler

As you can probably guess from my blog title, I am pretty excited and surprised right now. This morning I was watching TV show This Morning and saw them doing a hair demonstration, the product they used was Babyliss Pro perfect curl styler, (the salon version of Babyliss curl secret styler.)Wow, is all I can  say. All of those times you burnt your finger on a curling wand, sat for over an hour trying the curl your whole head of hair, those times one strand just refused to co-operate? Never again. With this product you simply place it at any length of the hair depending on where you want the curl to start, and it literally sucks your hair up, and after 4 bleeps et voila! the curl is done. When I told my boyfriend about this his response was simply "Your not buying a hoover for your hair" aha, so true. The thing is though, whereas the Babyliss curl secret styler retails around £120, the pro perfect curl styler salon version retails at around £170, meaning that they are very costly compared to other stylers on the high-street, I have also been browsing blogs and found that although the pro perfect curl styler has 3 heat settings, 3 timing settings and has a setting for a rightward/ leftward or alternated curl, the Babyless curl secret styler only has 2 heat settings, 3 timer settings and always alternates the curl. Question is, which is best? I most certainly cannot wait to buy one of these amazing new gadgets but which one? If anyone of you have tried this product and have a preference please let me know, help! For those of you have not seen this product in action, I have included a video of the Babyliss Pro perfect curl styler below...

Brand of the week: Pandora

Honestly, this could well be my favourite jewellery brand, (besides Tiffany & Co. and Swarovski). There is just something about Pandora that is so amazing! They have so many different collections and sell all manners of jewellery priced from low to high, and my favourite Pandora product has to be their charm bracelets. No matter what your into, what you like, Pandora has so many different charms to suit, they are perfect for signifying little memories and I just love to build mine full of charms that mean something to me, whether they are a gift or a little treat from me! Below is my two Pandora rings, one being my birthstone ring I got as a present for my 18th and the other a little gift from my boyfriend. Below is also my Pandora bracelet, despite being bought this by a boyfriend 2 Christmases ago it isn't particularly full! I like to keep my bracelet girly and sparkly, I'm such a fan of the flower clip, fairy and cupcake! I have also included my pick of their new "Christmas Collection" the charms are gorgeous, I absolutely love Christmas, and cannot wait to add a one or two of these to my bracelet! Do you have a Pandora charm bracelet? What are your favourite charms? :)

Kim Kardashian: Get the look

I don't know about you, but in my opinion the Kardashian's are the queens of style. As you can see from one of my previous posts on Khloe Kardashian's style choices, when flicking through news articles today, Kim Kardashian's outfit really caught my eye, and so I thought I would try and re-create her look with high street alternatives! On a recent shopping trip with Kanye, Kim was spotted in a Givenchy ruffled peplum dress from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, whatttt?! Talk about recycling, usually the Kardashian's are never spotted in the same outfit twice! However, Kim looked absolutely gorgeous in this cream ruffle front dress, and she teamed it with a sheer black lace blouse, Bottega Veneta gold clutch, and black & gold strappy sandals. You can recreate the look with pieces I have found here for a lot less than that Kardashian price tag...

Beauty brand of the week: Batiste

So when I have browsed other peoples blogs I've realised that my blog is missing one weekly consistent post. So from now on I will be doing beauty/ fashion brand of the week, which will consist of my favourite brands and their products of that week! To start off with, Batiste is my beauty brand of the week, their dry shampoo range is simply a life saver! I don't know about you, but I use Batiste dry shampoo almost everyday, it smells gorgeous and is essential for giving your hair a little boost between washes. For many years now I have used either the 'coconut & exotic tropical' or 'floral and flirty blush' bottles as they smelt divine, however I noticed that although it banished the grease and left little residue, my hair was left a little flat. Recently boots had a 2 for 1 offer on the batiste range which is when I came across a new bottle, 'XXL volume' in a very attractive pink shimmering bottle so I instantly wanted to try it ... I can honestly say that the product instantly boosts your hair and adds volume without clagging up the hair or leaving residue, it also works particularly well on my fringe. If your hair is prone to grease between washes simply spray some of the product at the roots and the underneath of your hair and see the difference! Batiste also offers many other dry shampoos including colour, volumising, nourishing and original collections for different hair types, which is your favourite dry shampoo? :)
 Batiste XXL volume dry shampoo- £3.99- Boots

My week in pictures!

Just another post to give you a little more insight into what I have been up too in the past week! To be honest I don't really have a very exciting life but I know I absolutely love it when fellow bloggers do these sort of life posts so I hope you enjoy! What have you been up to this week? :)
Well firstly I decided to start my week with a lazy Monday! So I decided to dedicate my day to revision, pfft, I eventually messed on with my hair and curlers instead, very productive day. Wednesday I went to my first big house party, Leeds is full of huge (old and creepy) student houses and me and my uni friends decided to start our night with 18'' pizzas and pre drinks, perfect! Friday I was feeling all festive and had my first 'honeycomb hot chocolate' from Costa, seriously you need to try one of these! Mmmmmm. Saturday my family came to visit me at uni and we took advantage of the German Christmas market again seen as it was also my dad's birthday, the cost of the meal was over £70 whatttttt?! After this we did a spot of Christmas shopping, I am so lucky to be living in Leeds right now because the shopping is simply amazzzzing. I also got to come back home with them this weekend and spent some time making Christmas decorations with my little sister. Nawww!

Treat Time!

Time for a treat, or just an excuse? Hmm, genuinely this accessory caught my eye when I was walking through town, and so I went back to buy it yesterday. The other day I realised I didn't even have a clutch! Whattttt???? I really love this one and it really caught my eye because the clutch also comes with a strap to make it into a short handbag, which is super suitable and handy to use when you want to grab something out of your bag quick. The design is also especially nice, the typical envelope style clutch is made even better because of the black velvet and glitter contrast along with the gold chain, which basically incorporates all of the current trends at the moment! The price is also excellent, which is what I have found with the majority of New Look's products, at £12.99 this is such a bargain, I also used my 10% student discount to get mine for just £11.69! The clutch also comes in 2 different versions so you can choose from either black and gold glitter, or black patent croc print, and you can grab yourself one here ! :)

Product Review: Maybelline Color Show & Rimmel London Space Dust

Just a little post to share with you some nail varnishes I just tried! A while ago I was given Maybelline Color show nail varnish from my friend as a birthday present, I absolutely love it but never got around to trying it! I also bought the new Rimmel London Space Dust the other day from boots as it instantly caught my eye, I cant resist a bit of pink and sparkles... I tend to mix up my nail varnishes by using one as a bottom coat and the other (usually glitter) to add a little sparkle to the top, and I found Color show (shade 83 PINK BIKINI) and Space Dust (shade 004 Luna Love) were the perfect combination. Even if you don't try either of these shades, you should definitely check out the Color Show and space dust ranges as they have a huge array of beautiful colour shades to try! Plus, they are both just £2.99 and £3.99, a super affordable price to pay for beautiful nails! What is your favourite nail varnish shade at the moment? Have you tries anything from the ranges? :)
Maybelline New York Color Show (shade 83 PINK BIKINI)- £2.99- Boots

MTV EMAs Amsterdam 2013: Best & Worst Dressed

Last night was the hugely anticipated MTV EMAs 2013 in Amsterdam, and as per usual, the second most anticipated feature of the night besides the awards, was the fashion. To sum it up in three words, flesh, sheer & black. Everywhere. From fishnet to vintage, lace to elegance, the main talking point was the sheer amount of flesh on show, not to mention the highly controversial presence of Miley Cyrus again. So below I have compiled my small pick of the best and worst dressed at the EMAs, what do you think? What were your opinions of the fashion favourites and fashion faux pas? :)

 1. Katy Perry began the night wearing a beautifully elegant structured mint satin dress by Zac Rosen resort 2014, teamed with a vintage Dolce & Gabbana headband and dusty pink Charlotte Olympia shoes. But it wasn't just her outfit which grabbed our attention, as eyes were drawn to what looks like an engagement ring on her finger!
2. Katy opted for a very different look after receiving her award, and slipped into a gorgeous sheer black fishnet skater dress, which she combined with chunky Chanel jewellery and red lips. Loving her shoes also!
3. Laura Whitmore remained classy in a beautiful strapless peplum mini dress, with white and black lace and feather embellishment, absolutely love this outfit.
4. Rita Ora never fails to impress, and aside from her usual quirky style, she brought old Hollywood glamour back to the catwalk in a sultry plunging neck, thigh- high split black gown.
5. As ever, Ellie Goulding looked stunning in a daring, completely sheer, black lace gown. This dress fits perfectly with her current "bare it all" style at the moment, and draws strong comparisons to the gown to wore to her X Factor UK performance just a few weeks ago.
1. Miley, what have you done? As a huge lover of Miley Cyrus, I usually try my hardest to see the best in her style, despite the controversy surrounding her of late. However, besides smoking a joint on stage and twerking again, this outfit was simply horrific. Her vintage mini lace up dress which adorned pictures of Biggie Smalls and Tupac was accompanied by gold and silver jewellery and monochrome thigh-high boots from the Tom Ford Fall 2013 collection, not a good look Miley.
2. It is safe to say that her style choices didn't get any better as the show progressed, as she completed her 'Wrecking Ball' performance in a high cut white body suit and skyscraper heels, the camel toe is not a good luck Miley.
3. Speaking of camel toe's Iggy Azalea managed to loose all dignity when she accidently had a wardrobe malfunction and bared all the cameras. Her sheer black dress, which was slashed all the way up to her belly button was however bang on trend with most celebs opting for black last night, and she teamed her dress with some beautiful red platform sandals, however not a fashion favourite.

My Week In Pictures...

So this isn't one of my usual type of posts, but I thought that I might as well actually share an insight into my life with all my blog followers! So, below is a quick look at what I have been up too during the past week, what have you been up too recently? Enjoy! :)
Firstly, I finally jumped on the band wagon and got myself an iphone 4S, if I am honest, I used to think that there was waaaay too much hype over apple products and especially iphone's, but I absolutely love mine, my quality of life has genuinely improved massively, hehe. Here is a picture of me and my little sister Isabelle, (excuse the ridiculous facial expressions) I get so excited when my family come to visit me at uni, I get so lonely! The next picture is a bit of a random, but I was so excited to receive free candy floss from the Ted Baker shop in Leeds, nobody turns down free candy floss, right? BONFIRE NIGHT, after trying to get all of my flat mates to come to the fireworks with me, (nobody could face the freezing cold) so I called on my bestie to come with me, I love fireworks and they were amaaaaazing. Thursday was the Christmas lights switch on in Leeds, I have never been to one of these before as I come from a  pretty small town, but I really enjoyed it, yet again, more fireworks! Me and my flat mate also got to see Gabriella Cilmi singing live, (she was turning the lights on) and she was brilliant! Finally, in Leeds there is an annual German Christmas market which I was super hyped up about because I absolutely LOVE Christmas, it certainly did not disappoint, just look at that food!

My pick of Autumn/ Winter 2013 Trends

For those of you who follow my blog, and regularly read my posts, will be able to see that I am a little bit of a shopaholic... so as you would expect, I am always having a little shopping spree browsing what's new on the high street, except now its more window shopping now the all my student loan has practically vanished, (no idea where it went!). Aha, anyway this post is sort of a wish list/ selection of some bits and pieces that have caught my eye, and a little insight into what are my favourite trends for Autumn/ Winter 2013. :)

Glitter. Everywhere I look there is glitter, and glitter on every piece of clothing you could imagine. This is a perfect trend in time for the Christmas party season, and what I especially love is that stores are bringing back a little bit of 90's/00's chic to the high street, I am particularly in love with the two tone socks, heels and cutsie scrunchie.

2. Lips in beguiled- £8- Topshop
3. Matte nails in brutal- £6- Topshop
4. Velvet bunny ear scrunchie- £4- Topshop

Cosy winter warmers... who doesn't love to be snug as a bug in a jumper at this time of year? I love these two jumpers by Topshop and Lipsy as they also add a little bit of sparkle with gems and pearls to stay bang on trend! The introduction of faux fur is also something to look out for because its everywhere! Finally, who couldn't resist a pair of reindeer slippers for Christmas?! I want all of these!

2. Luxe fur mittens- £18- Topshop

Finally, its velvet! I absolutely love that velvet has come back as a major tend this season, as it is such a gorgeous material, and I have also found that it keeps you super warm! In particular I have found that Topshop has a fabulous range of velvet this season...

1. Black velvet teddy playsuit- £40- Topshop
2. Berry crushed velvet shorts- £32- Topshop
3. Satin velvet strap corset- £25- Topshop

Happy Halloweeeeen!

Happy halloweeeen! So, I don't actually think I have dressed up for Halloween for soooo many years now but seen as I'm now a student and was going out to celebrate, I thought i'd just go for it! Instead of doing the typical 'blood splattered nurse' or quirky banana costume (like my flat mate) I decided to be more traditional and go as a cat, original, I know.... Anyway I wore a long sleeved lace black peplum top, disco pants,  wedges and made my outfit a little more Halloweeny with a cat masquerade mask and a touch of fake blood :p What were you wearing this Halloween? 
Long sleeved lace peplum- £10- Primark
Wedges- New Look
Disco pants- £10- Topshop Petite
Black plastic filigree mask- £12.50- Topshop

Eyeko London: Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner

Just a quick product review of an amaaaaaazing new freebie I got in a magazine recently... So, this eye liner promises to be easy to control on application and is said to deliver point perfection precision, obviously there are sooooo many eyeliners out there and this one retails at £10 so for a good eyeliner is pretty average, I got the product in black but it also comes in brown, blue & purple shades, and hey if it gets Alexa Chungs approval why not give it a go?! I found the product was just like any other I have tried in the past, however although I am not a fan of eyeliner, I did think this was extremely easy to apply, it was precise and didn't smudge unlike a lot of other eyeliners, it gets my approval so if your beauty regime regularly includes eyeliner you should definitely give it a go! :)

Mini Shopping Spree

My recent lack of blogging is simply awful, 2 weeks since my last post, 2 weeks!!!! Pinky promise I will start blogging more often from now on, I have just had soooo much on at university recently, boooo. Anyway, just a quick post to share with you what I bought recently on a mini shopping spree with my flatmate. Last weekend was my friends 19th birthday, and of course I couldn't just find something in my wardrobe to wear for it, I needed a whole new outfit. Problem is, I left it super last minute but managed to find this little outfit. 1. Is my new cami from Miss Selfridge, I absolutely love this as it can be worn with a skirt/disco pants or even jeans and I just love the glitter, this will be perfect for the Christmas season. 2. My velvet tube skirt, usually I wouldn't go for this type of skirt, but I reallly wanted to embrace the velvet craze right now, and the pattern is also so original. Again, this skirt can be worn over and over with different tops all year round! I wore the skirt for my friends birthday and teamed it with a cream chiffon cami, and nude Kurt Geiger cork heels, but you could be sooo experimental with this little number :). 3. Ballet pumps are a personal favourite of mine, for day to day wear, you cant go wrong with a H&M bargain. Finally 4. While in Miss Selfridge I spotted the sale jewellery (as per usual) and because I have wanted some midi rings for so long I just had to get these! What have you been buying recently? :) 
1. Gold Glitter Shimmer Cami- £24- Miss Selfridge
2. Velvet embossed tube skirt- £24- Miss Selfridge
3. Brown Ballet pumps- £7.99- H&M
4. Earth Child Midi Rings- WAS £8.50 NOW £4.25- Miss Selfridge

So, the other week I had my first experience of a student shopping lock in!  My advice to you, if you can't afford to spend money, DO NOT GO, the temptation is unreal... although all of the free stuff and discounts of up to 30% really does compensate for the huge crowds of people in Topshop and the time spent queuing for an escalator... Anyway, along with some other things I bought, I spent most of my money in Victoria's Secret, after resisting temptation for far too long! So, I actually visited the PINK section of Victoria's Secret, because if I'm honest, £20 for a pair of nickers and £50 for a bra is just not going to happen! I managed to pick up 7 pairs of nickers for just £20, and some joggers for £39.50, although I will admit I feel a little strange for uploading pictures of my new underwear to my blog, hey, they are so pretty and vibrant I just want to show you them! PINK have such an amazing range of underwear and clothes in many different styles, designs, colours and materials, love them, you should definitely check out their range! :)
Collegiate pant- £39.50- PINK
Black Extra low rise cheekster- £7.00- PINK
White Extra Low rise thong- £7.00- PINK
Pink Extra Low rise mini cheekster- £7.00- PINK
Purple Extra Low rise thong- £7.00- PINK
Pink lace bikini- £7.00- PINK
Extra low rise mini cheekster- £7.00- PINK

Autumn/ Winter 13 Trend

So, its kinda technically Autumn now :(... why does summer have to go so fast?! Anyways, I recently read that there was a new trend when it comes to clothes this autumn and winter, and it is all about experimenting with texture clashes. Whether its wool, fur, leather or actual applique texture, experimenting with them all can make a really great outfit. At first I didn't really get what "texture clash" meant, but when I was shopping the other day I noticed that Warehouse especially are experimenting with texture clashes this season, some of which can be seen in their range of winter coats. Not only will they keep you super warm, but they look great and every style and material is unique, although they are a little pricey, winter coats can be worn over and over again and year by year, so invest now! You can find some of my favourite styles below, and can shop online at Warehouse here.
1. Five way biker coat- £140
2. Herringbone coat- £95
3. Borg colour biker coat- £100
4. Quilted faux fur collar jacket £65
5. Bonded faux fur jacket- £80
6. Faux fur collar coat- £95

Nope I 'm not lying, seriously, there is a website offering a range of dresses for just £1 each! I know right, awesome. The website itself is called ikrush and is currently celebrating it's first birthday, and to celebrate, they are offering a range of 10 different styles of dresses at a tiny price of just £1! From peplum to tie die, chiffon to floral, they have something suitable for anyone for any occasion! I highly suggest you check this website out as these dresses are something you would expect from Primark perhaps, for just £1, and not only that, but they are also offering 20% off on your first order, which comes in handy if you wish to look at their other fabulous ranges of clothes, as if they weren't giving us enough! Hurry though, these dresses will probably sell veryyyy fast, but don't worry if you don't make it in time, because all of the dresses will be back in stock by Sunday 2pm. I have included all of the styles below, and although not much can probably be said for the quality compared to your average high street buy, you can't go wrong with snapping one of these dresses up, you can never have too many dresses! :)

Yes being at uni is awesome, and especially being in Leeds the nightlife is amazing!!!! But the only issue is finding enough outfits to wear every night! Anyways, I thought I would show you an outfit from what I wore at the weekend. As it is freeeeeezing cold right now, you can't go wrong with disco pants, like seriously you can wear them with anything and they keep your legs super warm, definitely a party essential. So although these disco pants have a gorgeous shimmer to the material, to keep my outfit party ready, I have teamed them with one of my cami's, this one is probably my favourite, the fuchsia pink colour is gorgeous and adds a pop of colour to your outfit, love it! And to finish my look I added some cork wedge sandals for comfort, a statement necklace and another injection of colour to my lips, the lipstick I am wearing is Revlon "Just bitten kissable" balm stain in shade "020 Lovesick Passionee" which is a perfect match to the top I was wearing, the best thing is the colour stays on your lips all night without having to re apply! :)
V neck strappy cami (Fuchsia) - £18- Topshop
Disco Pants- £30- Topshop Petite
Gold Arrow Point Necklace- £12.50- Topshop
Revlon "Just Bitten Kissable" (020 Lovesick Passionee)- £7.99- Boots

I went out yesterday to buy some soup & a stamp, and I came back with a handbag and a ring... true story. Seriously, that's a weeks money gone already, oops! If there is one thing I love, its accessorizing, no outfit is complete without a perfect pair of shoes, a bag and jewellery, and honestly I am obsessed. Anyway, I have had my eye on this handbag for a while now but at £42, I was not prepared to pay that much, however yesterday was my lucky day as while out in town Warehouse were giving away tickets which carried four different codes, of which would offer you either 15% off, 25% off or a £50 voucher etc. on that day... and I happened to get a 25% off coupon, meaning I saved over £10 on this bag! I absolutely love the colour of this bag and the contrast of the two textures the bag is made of, a fake leather material and suede, it also comes in black and burgundy. Wallis were also holding a sale, offering 50% off certain items on that day, one of which was the ring I purchased. This ring is so beautiful and is a perfect accessory for day and night, the only problem is that like with most fashion jewellery, they can go green as the gold/silver colour can wear off, if you want to avoid this, simply give your jewellery a quick coat of clear nail varnish to ensure it is long lasting and beautiful :)

Two tone bag- £42- Warehouse
Ring- £7.50- Wallis

So since moving to Leeds I have to say I couldn't resist temptation from the shops! Anyway, I thought I would share with you the few bits and bobs I bought, firstly, I have my new body shop perfume! Although I absolutely love The Body Shop, I don't normally go for fruity perfumes, however when a lady in the shop gave me a free tester I absolutely loved it. I also paid a visit to Primark and got these gorgeous ballerina pumps which I thought were perfect for day and evening wear, the bow and embellishment is so cute! Thirdly are my new disco pants, at first I had literally borrowed my flat mates disco pants for 3 days and eventually decided I should maybe just buy some, so when I went to Topshop I wasn't too sure whether to buy them or not as they were £30! However, my luck was in and when I got to the till I was told they were now only £10, couldn't believe it! Seriously, if you don't have disco pants BUY SOME NOW, they are amazing when your out on a cold night as they are great at keeping you warm! Finally, it's my new jumper, I do have one similar, however, because the weather has suddenly got absolutely freezing, I decided I needed another. The colour is so cute and the material is super soft, love it!
Strawberry Eau De Toilette 30ml- £8.50- The Body Shop
Embellished Ballerina Pumps- £6- Primark
Disco Pants- £30 NOW £10- Topshop Petite
Pink V- neck jumper- £7- Primark

Monsoon- Oriental Lip Balm

Recently I bought this lip balm on a shopping spree, and honestly I have fallen in love with it! I'm a big fan of lip balms, as they add a gorgeous bit of colour and gloss to your lips without daring to wear a lipstick, ensuring your makeup appears more subtle for just a daytime look. This one in particular will cost you a mere £3, which is fabulous for a lip balm! These lip balms by Monsoon, come in four different shades, and I chose 'Oriental'. The colour is a coral/pink shade and is super glossy, and what is even better is the smell is divine! Seriously I suggest you give this one a go, as its small and the packaging is beautiful, a perfect addition to your makeup bag! :)


Yes, this is not one of my usual posts and its totally not fashion related but I love to give my followers insight into my life and what things I get up to! So, Saturday was move in day to uni! I'm at Leeds Metropolitan University, studying Marketing & Advertising Management, unfortunately my course doesn't actually start till next week, however that means 2 whole weeks of freshers! (hence my lack of blogging). But yeah, Leeds is such an amazing place, the night life is awesome and the shopping is fabulous, seriously, I am going to be broke. Not only does Leeds have supersize versions of your average Topshop/ River Island/ New Look, but the temptation of Victoria's Secret and Louis Vuitton is simply unbearable... so yes, expect a few posts of my recent spending sprees! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few pictures of my new home and will upload some more posts soon! :)

Maybelline New York: COLOR SHOW

Firstly, I must apologise for my lack of blogging this week, I have been super busy getting sorted for uni.... I moved in yesterday so I pinky promise to keep up my blog from now on! So anyways, I just thought I would share with you some amazzzzing new nail varnish I tried this week. My friend bought these two nail polishes for my birthday but I never really got round to trying them out, they are both from the "Color Show" range by Maybelline New York and they are great! They come in loads of vibrant colours, and I happened to be given two different shades of pink in 'Pink Bikini' & the one which I am wearing in these pictures 'Bubblicious'. Not only is the colour gorgeoussss, but I have had this nail varnish on my nails for over a week now and unlike some nail varnishes which can 'fade' over time on your nails, this one has kept its vibrant colour! These nail varnishes cost just £2.99, cheap and cheerful! :)

Hot Right Now

Firstly, I am absolutely obsessed with the Kardashian sisters, like seriously I am a hugeeee fan! So anyway I am always on the look out for the latest on what they are wearing and what they are into, which is when I found this amazzzzing accessory! Kourtney Kardashian has been busy this weekend in Las Vegas, first and for most she was promoting "Kardashian Khaos" where she was seen wearing a gold ornate print dress which was studded with multi coloured rhinestones and gems, she also wore Valentino studded heels. Then she was seen wearing a black lace trimmed jumpsuit with plunging neckline on a night out in Vegas with her friends, but what caught my eye was what she accessorized both outfits with.... her Charlotte Olympia Pandora plexiglass clutch. These Perspex clutches are everywhere right now and I need one! Kourtney's clutch can be worn with multiple different outfits as demonstrated by Kourtney, and what is even better is that bag with gold flower clasp comes with three different insert purses in leopard print, black &gold, giving you three clutches for the price of one! But if you can't afford the price tag, there are plenty of alternatives available at  Harrods, ASOS & Missguided. :)

Valentino garavani rock stud sling back in hot prink- £610

MTV VMAs 2013: Best Dressed

After reading all of the coverage from the MTV Video Music Awards, which was held in Brooklyn New York this year, I couldn't help but focus on what everyone was wearing! There were certainly some fashion mistakes, and I am sure you may have heard the outcry surrounding Miley Cyrus' controversial performance of the evening wearing just skin coloured latex lingerie, but there were some really amazing outfits of the night which I really wanted to share with you! While some celebs competed for the most extravagant or outrageous outfit of the evening, others channelled old Hollywood glamour into their outfits, and in my opinion, some of the best dressed celebs were Katy Perry, Ciara, Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift... here is what they wore! :)
 Miley Cyrus- Dolce and Gabbana- Vintage Jewelled crop top and leggings/ platform Giuseppe Zanotti shoes/ Lorraine Schwartz jewellery
Lady Gaga- Prabel Gurung- satin gown with tulle train & rubber appliques
Katy Perry- Emanuel Ungaro- Brooches on monk neck printed cady- £3296 & Strappy blak and gold sandals 
 Ciara- Glittering white and silver gown complete with feather section
 Selena Gomez- Atelier Versace- Dark Blue floor length gown complete with sheer cut out bustier detail... My favourite outfit of the night...
Taylor Swift- Herve Leger By Max Azria- Plunging Navy Blue Gown
 Ellie Goulding- White and silver spiky dress teamed with matching heels
 Rita Ora- Alexandre Vauthier Couture- Extremely long feathered train and plunging jewelled top dress
