Ruffle Ruffle…

It’s been a good while since I’ve written or posted anything for which I apologise. After travelling and then going back to work and some other matters I’ve found myself with very little motivation to write anything.

However, I’m trying to change that and I’m trying to ignore the voice in my head that’s telling me I’m not good enough at the moment.

It’s finally my favourite season. When it got to the end of September I was dying to dig out all my scarves, big coats, big jumpers and plum lipsticks. I’ve also been finding myself recently trying on different clothes which I wouldn’t usually wear when I’ve been out shopping, and being pleasantly surprised when they’ve fit or looked good.

Here’s one I was particularly happy with. This little Ruffle Style Shirt from H&M. I’ve had my eye on the ruffle style and I’ve been really liking it so I thought I’d try it out and needless to say I’m loving it. It is a bit out there for me, and something I wouldn’t usually go for but I’ve been inspired by other women to try new things with my style and this I did.

It’s smart and classic and effortlessly chic. All the things I look for in my wardrobe. I think I’m going to get some wear out of this one. What do you think?

Makeup Wishing…

So I’ve recently been dreaming about dreamy make up releases that have hit our make up counters this Winter.  So I thought I’d share them with you incase you didn’t already know about these amazing new releases.

The first is the Nars One Shocking Moment Limited Edition Face Complextion Palette. This has me in absolutely awe. I love Nars’ Orgasm and Laguna face palette for a cheeky contour and blush, but this palette takes this to a whole new other level for me. Priced at £49 makes me feel a little sick inside however, if I trip into Space NK and accidentally trip so hard that my bank card just happens to find it’s way into the chip and pin and suddenly pays for it then that’s absolutely okay isn’t it??

Just look how dreamy it is!! With everything from highlighter to bronzer, this is the ultimate palette to have to give yourself a perfect complexion. Definitely on my to buy list…

Next up is another palette I have been dreaming of ever since I saw a blog post of it a few months back. The Paris Audacity EyeShadow Palette. Based on the streets of Paris, this palette includes 16 luxurious shades with 4 different finishes which I am dying to get my eyelids into. I love working with eyeshadow and creating different looks and with being a very big fan of the Lancome Hypnose eyeshadow palettes, I already know this palette is going to work wonders. It’s going to be perfect for all occasions, building different looks and having LOTS of fun in the process.

My last lusting piece at the moment is the Laura Mercier Gift Collection. Holy mother of God have you seen the gift sets this year from this wonderful woman?! Christmas is gonna be gooooood. From a luxurious brush set, to a dreamy 12 set eyeshadow palette, a master class colour essentials kit which includes everything you could ever need is absolutely to die for. There’s just too much to talk about and I’m getting too excited AH. If you want to know exactly what I’m drooling over then head over here and hopefully accompany me in the drooling game.

What do you have your beady little eyes on this winter? Have I made you drool? Because right now there’s a puddle underneath my laptop…

Asos Coat Wishlist…

As my favourite season is on the horizon, I felt it very necessary to have a snoop at my favourite item of clothing. COATS. Coats are without doubt my favourite item to buy for myself. I love how they can be the key to any outfit, whether you’re going out for a coffee, or a shopping trip or even a cheeky date. There is a coat for all your needs…Excellent!

I stumbled on Asos and found some little gems which if I could I would put all of them straight in my basket [hehe] and purchase them all! But since I don’t have the bank account to do so, i’ll just put them in my save list instead…
