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 knitwearsection 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.
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!
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.
It is all about the gold & plum accents this time of year! Fabulous!
I wanted to shop to cheer myself up... but i'm too poor so I made this outfit/wish list post instead. But now I want the things even more. Especially the boots, trousers & chain. & lipstick. & sunnies as well actually.
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'.
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!
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!
