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
