 So as I buy masses of beauty products, I thought I might start blogging about it a little bit more. I may be wrong... but generally girls who love clothes tend to like make up, I know I do. I enjoy reading what other people are loving, so I thought i'd share a few of my very favourite products at the moment with you -

First off is the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm , which has recently come over from America. There has been a lot of hype around these so I thought for £2.99 each, why not try them.
Honestly, you will not be dissapointed. 
I now carry one in my pocket wherever I go! These are my two favourite shades, Peach Kiss & Cherry, but you can also get plain balm ones.
 They're also 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment so stock up for sure!!

Another lip product, & my favurite of all time, Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intensive lip colour  in the shade Incandescente. 
I love everything about this. 
It's the perfect colour, it goes on so smoothly, doesn't dry out, lasts for ages & it feels like a little bit of luxary.
 I find this shade suits me best, I love darker purple and pink lipsticks but they look horrendous on me. If like me you have olivey skin, dark eyes & goldy brown hair it will be your new best friend.

Unfortunately, I was not blessed with pretty eyelashes. Mine are short and have no curl. An absolute bummer. They've also become really bad condition lately, and I must admit, I am not a huge fan of lash extensions. They're ok done very well and naturally, but i've seen too many bad examples that have put me right off. 
So I thought i'd try this No7 Fanomenal lash serum.
You are supposed to use it nightly for 8 weeks, i've only been using it for about 2 and already can see a difference. My lashes look longer and feel a lot stronger. (that rhymed)
So, at the moment, it is in my favourties.

This is an old friend of mine, the No7 Stay Perfect foundation.
I have literally been using this product since birth. Don't get me wrong, I have dappled in to the world of mousse, powder & other liquid foundations, but I always come back to this one. Firm favourtie!

The YSL Touche Eclat  is just the best product ever.
I have only been using it a few months, but I don't know how I went without it, & I hope I will never be parted with it again.
It is quite expensive, but I honestly think it is worth every penny... & it lasts ages. 
Boots also have £5 off at the moment on their website.

I always keep a bottle of Lush Tee Tree Toner water .
I get through quite a few throught they year! I use it before I moisturise in the morning, During the day if i'm not wearing make up or I am re doing it, & before I go to bed. 
It is just so refreshing & the tee tree just makes it feel like you're wiping any impurities away. 

I have tried so many mascaras, hoping that one will work some sort of miracle on my stumpy lashes & this is the best I have ever had. 
I think it't the brush that really makes the difference, it's one of those long plasticy type ones, which I find gets to the base of my lashes and pulls them upwards. 
Boots have these on offer at 2 for £14, & at £10.99 each that is a barg!

Let me know what you think, i'd love to hear your thoughts. Equally... if you think my beauty blogging is a no no then do feel free to say so! (I think that rhymed a little again to)

( Firstly i'd like to apologise for the bedroom photos... it was rainy in my garden & I don't have any other good blog photo spaces! )

So we have all seen tartan featuring quite heavily in the collections of Preen, Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen & quite a few others... So I decided to dig my vintage tartan shirt out. I do like to rediscover it every now and then, but it's probably being worn now more than ever! 

Theres so many tartan shirts on the highstreet at the moment so I have picked a few fave links out for you here ...

So at the moment I am living in camis & Boyfriend jeans. My Topshop Lacey jeans have now gone in the sale... bad news for me, not so bad news for you. I'd grab a pair!

Now this bag is as old as can be, but it's the one I always go back to. I get a new one and think "lovely, I have rid myself of my old bag & got this fabulous smooth new one", but it is never the case. It's my bezzie mate of the bag world. It is also Topshop by the way.

My sunnies are Zero UV & you can find them right here.

Topshop Allegra boots.
Topshop bag.
Topshop sweater.

I'm really annoyed that these have come out blury cos I really like this outfit. So I do apologise. I need a photographer!!

I love this Asos jersey jumpsuit, & it's on sale at the moment down to £18 so i'd grab one! I might get one in grey as well.

This Pieces necklace is one of my fabourites. I normally am more partial to a bit of gold, but this one is so good for jazzing up a plainer outfit.
I was thinking of getting another one to do as my first giveaway. What do you think?

I have become a bit obsessed with boyfriend ripped jeans. My favourite blogger @ Mexiquer  has been wearing them perfectly.
& heres a few more bits of inspiration to feast your beady eyes on...


These are my favourite few highstreet picks. I have the second Topshop pair, the Lacey jeans, & love them to bits & peices.
Let me know what you think!

Lately I have developed a little obsession for wearing pretty lacey bras or bralets under cami tops & dropped arm vests.
I've always been a huge fan of layering & I love mixing textures, so I think they add the perect touch of femininity on a toughed up outfit.

Recently, I was introduced to a website called Avenue 32, where you can find high end fashion brands. I was having a browse, & with my new found lingerie love, I discovered MYLA. The collection is just so glamourous & mixes pure silks with the most gorgeous delicate lace.
Here are my four favourites from the collection, which would be absolutely perfect for laying under oversized tees and camis...

It looks like my ever growing birthday list just got a few more additions! 




So after seeing this t.shirt loads on instagram & wanting it for ages I finally tracked it down on Monki & it arrived yesterday. Hip Hooray for dawgs!...


My trusty Topshop Adonis boots.
