Is this Excessive?

Ok girls. don't judge me! Yes I have literally gone out and bought 3 copies of Glamour magazine. Luckily two of them were actually different, but yes I do have a duplicate. Why? Well as I'm sure most of you know, today the new Glamour came out with some amazing Benefit goodies as freebies! When you buy the £2 mag you will get either a Bad Gal Smoldering black eye pencil, an Eye Brght Instant eye brightener or The It Stick Conceal it all stick.

As you can see..... I got all three! But for £6 that is a bargain don't you think? And I had been thinking about buying Eye Bright for a while too. So excited!

I instantly had to try these out, so first I swatched them. From far left: the It stick, bad gal and eye bright.

Verdict? These pencils are amazing value for 2 squids each. Seriously creamy and easy to apply. The it stick is a perfect shade for my skin tone but probably not for everyones (bit of a strange product). My favourite has to be the Eye Bright though, because I applied it to the inner corners of my eyes and on the inner lower lash line and it instantly revived my face! I love the gorgeous soft pink colour it is too. Bad Gal speaks for itself really, just a perfect smudgy versatile product. You could use it as a kohl liner, under the lash line, on the top lash line plus it would be a great base for a smokey eye look.

Okay so you probably can't tell much from this picture, but I have all 3 products one. I used It stick to conceal under my eyes, bad gal on the lower lash line outer 1/3rd and eye bright on the inner section of my eye. I absolutely love these products, they will be staples in my handbag at all times from now on!

On a different note, I did a little shopping recently and purchased these cute Rolla Sole pumps which can be found at They are my newest addition to my handbag as  always always (!) wear innapropriate shoes for any occassion. They are always too hgh or just too uncomfortable and I end up in agony towards the end of the day so I was in desperate need of something like this. I think of them as my emergency back up plan. They roll up so small and fit snugly in my handbag and then if I need to I can just whip them out and voila comfy feet once again. so they're not the most stylish when they're on my feet, and knd of look like slippers, but If I can fit them in my handbag I don't really care. An emergency is an emergency!

Okay thats it for now girls! But I wanna know did any of you get Glamour today, or plan on it (if there's any left!)?

Coveted Item of the week Skull jewellery

Hey Girls!

This week, I discovered an amazing jewellery line on Net a Porter. I was looking through the jewellery on there and this ring stood out to me:
It costs £82.50 and is by the designer Daisy Knights. Intrigued, I looked her up and found her website, where she has pictures of all her current pieces and an email address to place orders. I instantly loved loads of her collections, especially the Kim collection, which is the one this gorgeous ring belongs to.

Here are some other pieces i love that she has created which can be purchased from her site:

Kim Collection, Skull gem necklace £95 - 155

Kim Collection, Skull tie charm bracelet £28 - 48
Amelia Collection, Bow Earrings £60 -80

Becky Collection, Punk Rock Necklace £75 - 135

Daisy Knights herself is only 23 years old and a St.Martins graduate (of course!), and she is relatively new in the jewellery retail world. I am so glad NEt a Porter snapped up some of her designs because I love her stuff and I definately want to order the gorgeous skull gem ring. Of her jewellery, Daisy says that she is "passionate about keeping it British and eco-friendly", which is definately a good thing in my opinion! So if you like what you see, check out her website for more creations:

Lush Haul and £10 lush boxes!

Hi everyone! So I went to lush and got myself three bath bombs. I am addicted to anything spacey or shaped like planets or stars, just think its so cute, so I was immediately drawn to their new ballstic 'Space Girl'. Of course I was drawn to the glitteriness also!

The Lush website says: "It's shaped like Saturn with added space dust for our alien friends, and the refreshing scent of blackcurrant sweeties will make you hungry for your own space adventures"!
So cute I love this one. It smells divine; not too much like sweets which I prefer.

Next I got 'Think Pink'. Well I think the title pretty much explains why I got this!

Lush describe this as a "hot pink bomb" with the "sweetness of vanilla absolute". This one definately smells the sweetest of the three that I got this time but I really like it because little flowers are left in your bath after its dissolved. Love!

The final one I got was "All that Jas".
This one smells gorggggeous in my opinion. I love the more natural smelling bath bombs, other than ones that smell like sweets, so this one is definately my favourite of the three. Lush describe this one as a "sexy ballistic" with Vetivert to relieve stress and Jasmine to revitalise and warm emotions. Haha Lush advises to add a glass of champers to your bath with this ballistic. Now that would be luxury wouldnt it?

P.S Lush currently has a special offer where you can get a box of goodies for only ten pounds!

Outfit of the evening and Harrods!

Hey everyone! First I just want to say that  am so overwhelmed at how many followers I have after just a few weeks of blogging, and I just want to thank you all for your lovely comments, that make blogging worth while! Thanks billions! XXX

This is an outfit I wore yesterday to go out for drinks with some friends, but first I stopped of at Harrods in Knightsbridge with my bf, as its just an amazing store, and  always feel so happy walking around there! (even if I don't buy anything)

The belt is from Urban Outfitters and the bag is my teeny little Fendi that I adore!

These shoes are from Miss Selfridge, and I got them years ago in a sale. I think they were such an amazing bargain, think I only paid £20 for them and their super comfortable too X

Aren't these bags fabulous!? Clearly im craving the biggest, pinkest, glitziest one! Would be a cute beach bag I guess...

We saw the puppies they had for sale in Harrods, and poor little things, everyone was looking at them. Obviously I deflashed my camera, and they didnt notice I took a picture, but they didn't look that happy (with their backs facing everyone!). OH and they start at £2,500. Lovely little pugs, awwww.

Then we came across the Wonderland Cafe on the same floor as the puppies, and it was so cute!

So..... we got a giant ice cream hahahah

This cafe is definately meant for kids, but I loved it X

Thanks so much for reading Xoxo

FOTD. Subtle summery bronze X

Hey girlies! Today I wanted to try something a bit different with my makeup as summer is nearly here. So I ditched my matt eyeshadows and blush, opting for a bronzey shimmery look! Let me know what you think, and what look you were rocking today:

First of all I used concealer and foundation by Natural Collection, and I absolutely love them. They are super cheap but I love the coverage and finish it gives. Not at all drying, flaking or oily! Perfect for any combination skin types out there, like me. I use the fairest one they make which is actually a tiny bit dark if I'm not wearing any fake tan.

Next, I used the following products on my eyes:

I primed my eyelids with urban decay primer potion, then sweeped L'Oreal Chrome Shine shadow in Golden Rose all over the lid and up to the brow. I then took Benefit Gilded and lined my lid quite thickly, then blended that just on the lid and lined under my eyes with it. Next I just lined my top lid with L'Oreals black super liner, which I swear by! Lastly I used L'Oreal double extend mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

For my cheeks:

I contoured with St Tropez bronser, and then used my nat. collection blusher (not sure of the exact colour!), then highlighted / gave my cheeks a summery sheen with Mac's pigment in Rose. (ITs so gorgeous I feel I will be reaching for it a lot this summer)!

Next for my lips:

I always have really dry lips so I constantly have to apply lip balm of some kind, and always do before I put any lipstik on. So today I used softlips; flavour, Vanilla, smells lovely! Then Revlon lipstick in 001 Nude Attitude. Finally I sweeped a couple coats of No7 High Shine spf gloss in Smile, which I got as part of a gift set.

So that was my natural / shimmery face today! How about you girls??
Thanks for reading!
