COFFEE & CARMEX.





So today is my only day off this week & i'm having a day of getting final Christmas jobs done & going to see my bezzie mate... my Nan. 
 On days like today when I haven't got anywhere major to go & I like to give my hair and face a bit of a break, so I just wash my hair, pop it up, wack some carmex on my lips & sunnies on my eyes and away I go. (I don't wear sunnies unless it actually is sunny.) I love having days of not putting eye make up on, I feel so much fresher the next day. Often i'll pop some No7 eyelash serum on during the day. I love that stuff!

My cosy jumper is from H&M, I actually got it a while ago so I don't think it is in stock anymore, but take a look at their knitwear section or pop down to your local store. I think H&M are my faves for knitwear, they're so affordable, comfy & actually last ages. I think my jumper was like £15 or something stupid.
My jeans are Vero Moda, My slip ons are New Look & my sunnies are AJ Morgan @ Asos.
I also had to show you my fave mug. My cousin brought it for me from Urban Outfitters. You can find it here.

TWO PIECE.





Two piece sets are my new obsession, I wish I had enough money to wear them everyday! I just think they look so chic for daytime or evening.
I have shopped around & think Asos is the best place to find them, they have so many corkers.
 I actually won the checked jacket from Asos in a Twitter competion, so now I need the trousers to go with it... A perfect fashion week outfit i'd say. 
I have also been a bit naughty & ordered the zig zag Monki jacket, but I will wrap it up & give it to myself for a Christmas present. Does anyone else do that, or am I just super sad?

Let me know any sets you are loving.

BLUSH LEATHER.










Topshop Bag
Asos Jacket
Nike Trainers



So this is my kind of lazy day Sunday outfit.
I wanted this Topshop Leather tee for absolutely ages, & then it went in the mid season sale & I snapped it up! It's a kind of blush pink colour, but you can't really see it very well because it was such a murky old day.
They still have the black & off white t.shirts in stock, but not in the sale yet. So i'd keep your eye out for the christmas sale, I reckon they will be going in. Mine was £40 down from £95. What a barg!

MAKE UP WISHES.




1. Mac 266 Brush - The perfect angled brush for someone like me who religiously wears liquid eyeliner (except maybe on Sundays.)

2. Mac Select Sheer Powder I get through pots of this stuff a year... it will always be on my list!

3. Mac Lipstick in 'Rebel' - My lipstick collection is full of reds and oranges so i'm wishing for a perfect plum shade to take me through winter.

4. Clarins Eye Contour Balm - This bad boy product has nothing but good reviews for keeping your eyes fresh & reducing fine lines. Who woudn't want it? 
I do.

5. Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow duo palette - I am really lacking in a good eye shadow palette & would you just look at those baked shades!

6. Real Techniques Brushes - These brushes have been raved about, so naturally i'm dying to try them for myself!

7. La Rouche-Posay Effaclar Duo - Tanya Burr swears by this for when your skin needs some extra help, & anything that is good enough for her is certainly good enough for old Helen! 

8. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat - Believe all the hype about this! It is my all time favourite concealer/highligher/magic gold pen.

9. Essie Nail Polish in 'Topless & Barefoot' & 'Bahama mama'  - Deep silky plum & fresh nude. My perfect seasonal polish shades.

10. Benefit Brow Zings  - One of my best friends Mollie uses this & she has got the most banging brows. I want them & so would you if you could see them.

11. Topshop Highlighter & Blush in 'Flush' - I tested this highlighter on my hand & it was so fresh & shimmery. I have also been after a new blusher which isn't too pink, as it doesn't really suit my skin tone... so I think this one fits the old bill.


Let me know which products you are loving!

Oh dear.

ROLLIN'







 So i've been wanging on about roll necks for a while now, & this is my fave one. It's Zara TRF, it's not on the website but they did have loads in store in different colours. I want them all! Navy is next for sure. They're only like £15, which is think is an absolute bargain and will see you right through the season. INVEST!

I've been living in this trusty Topshop Boyfriend coat. This comes in different colours as well now, they do a perfect bright poppy red one, which you can find here.

It was so nice to be able to wack out the sunnies again this morning! I don't know about you, but I absolutely love cold days with sunny blue skies! 

My sunnies are AJ Morgan @ Asos, my jeans are Topshop 'Lacey', my belt is H&M, my bag is Topshop, my boots are Topshop 'Athena' & my lipstick is Chanel is 'Incandescente'.

CHRISTMAS WISHES.





Monki Jaquared Pattern Jacket (it is £10 on ASOS for some reason)



So this is how my Christmas List is progressing... no doubt there will be 20 more things on there by this time next week. 
I'm going through a reddy purple oxblood phase at the moment, probably because it's just started to get cold and it reminds me of cosy Autumn. 

I love this Asos faux pony skin clutch, they have so many amazing colours, something to go with errrrything! The bright orange & bright yellow would be next on my list. 

Being the granny that I am, i'm a firm Marks & Spencers fan, & it's the only place I ever buy my lingerie. They're always such great quality & they use really gorgeous fabrics & colours. So I was really excited about Rosie HW bringing out a collection, & I am certainly not dissapointed. It's filled with silk, lace & rich luxuarious colours. The one on my wish list is my favourite, but you have to see it on to appreciate the amazing shape of it. It comes in black as well, which is always a wee bit tempting! 

Let me know your thoughts & whats top of your list this year!

FACE LACE.



So you might have seen this brifly in my 'what i've been upto post', but I wanted to show you a bit more in depth about the amazing Face Lace.
I originally ordered mine for a masquerade ball, as didn't want the same mask as someone else, & now I am in love with it! I want more occasions to wear them for! You can re-use them as well, so I wore mine for the second time at work for halloween. 

The one I am wearing is called 'Mini Squirlyqueue', but there are so many beautiful styles to choose from. They've got a really great stylised video on the home page where you can see the different types in more detail. 

 

Millie Mackintosh is also a fan, here she is looking absolutely gorgeous in her Face Lace. 
What a top banana.

The next possible occasion you have an excuse to order one of these bad boys for go for it!
