Outfit - Bank

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Amy from Bank, who offered me two items from their own ranges; Ribbon and Blonde & Blonde. I couldn't believe my luck. After looking through the website for absolutely ages, I settled on these two pieces. I chose a robin jumper from their brand Blonde & Blonde and a pair of PU leather trousers by Ribbon. Bank have now gone into sale, so many of their items have up to 30% off, so definitely check that out. They also stock loads of other brands, including Glamorous and Converse.

I even managed to do an outfit post today, with good photos, yay! My sister visited so I asked if she would take the photos for me. We did try and take them outside, but it is so windy I just looked like I had crazy hair, so we gave up on that. 
Robin Jumper* and Pu fake leather trousers* - Bank
Ring and Boots- Topshop

I think they look really nice together, I love the colours on the jumper, with the cute skating robin! The jumper is SO soft, it's 100% acrylic but it doesn't feel like fake wool. So comfy and it even after christmas I can still wear it in the colder months! I love the oxblood colour, it is one of my favs! 


My cat snuck in the photos again!

Unfortunely, the trousers don't fit as well as I hoped they would, as they are quite baggy at the top, thankfully the jumper covers this! These trousers are a really good fake leather though, I was surprised on how much they look real! But if you are a bit curvy like me and petite they won't fit as well. 


I've also got some slightly christmassy nails at the moment, I'm wearing Nailene nails, which I bought in boots, 200 for £8.49. They don't look fake which is what I like and I was able to paint them however I like, I chose a Clock and Dagger Topshop Nails with alternate nails in Models Own Wonderland, Southern Lights

Kérastase Nutritive Bain Stain Shampoo and Nutritive Lait Vital Rinse-Out Conditioner review

I went to have my hair cut about two weeks ago now at my local Rush salon (25% off student discount is the only way I can afford it!) and I was just about to pay, when I was offered to buy some of their products. I had never tried any of them and I knew they were a bit pricey, but after a bit of persuasion, I decided what the heck!

I bought this gift box, a present to myself for all the hard work I've been doing at uni. I was a bit put off by the price (£36) as I had never even thought about spending that much on hair care! My usual £2 dove shampoo and £2ish conditioner, were as much as I'd really spent on hair shampoo before. But like I said I thought I would treat myself.  


As you can see you get quite a bit, the shampoo (250ml) and the conditioner (200ml) as well as a small tube of 'Couture Styling Forme Fatale Blow Dry Gel' (50ml) which you get as a freebie basically. This shampoo and conditioner is best for people with normal to slightly dry hair.
I say you get quite a lot and but I wasn't sure how far the shampoo would go, I was VERY pleasantly surprised. (I'll get onto that in a minute)

When I first opened up the shampoo to smell it (quite a vital in haircare for me anyway!) I loved the scent. It was subtle and sweet, the conditioner was similar but had a bit of a stronger scent, which was slightly floral. 


When I first used the shampoo I wasn't too sure on how much to use, so I used about a blob (technical) about the size of a ten pence piece, well that was way too much! It lathers up so much! I have shoulder length hair so each time I've washed my hair with it I've used a smaller amount. I'm now using a blob about the size of a five pence piece, it's ridiculous! This is why I said at the beginning that I got quite a lot for the price. 

I always wash my hair twice and then condition, with the Kératase it tells you to towel dry your hair after using the shampoo, then apply the conditioner. I then left it for about a minute and a half then rinsed it off. Again I didn't use much of the conditioner, but I used more than I did with the shampoo. This is because it isn't as thick as usual conditioners so doesn't go as fair, however I think the thinner texture helps to decrease build up of product, it also makes it easier/quicker to wash out. 

I have used the styling gel a few times, using about a ten pence piece size and rubbing it between my hands before applying to my hair. It seems to help the styling of my hair but I haven't seen the full affect of it yet. It might be best for when curling your hair or styling with waves etc. 

After drying my hair it felt like silk, it was so so soft. I can't recommend these products enough, if I had the money I would buy it all the time! It will hopefully last quite a while but after it runs out I will only buy it as a treat for my hair. At the moment it has got 15% off on the Rush website which is pretty great. 

Have you ever tried Kératase or another high end hair product? What do you think and would you recommend any?

Outfit


Favourite outfit of the week, so far. 
I decided to wear a skirt, which doesn't happen very often but sometimes it's nice to wear something different to jeans. Plus I put it with these dotty tights, which make any outfit a bit more interesting! 


I also wore my fedora for part of the day, until I put my coat on, as it got in the way. (I have a fur collar to my coat and it just caught on the hat - so annoying!)
But it looks nice as long as it's not too cold, so no coat needed. 
I added my scarf I bought from a market stall. I love the green and gold thread weaved through, it just adds a nice touch. 


I also added some jewellery from Born Pretty. I love this necklace so much, it is perfect. Have a read of my post on Born Pretty, which contains a 10% discount code!

Born Pretty

Recently I was contacted by the lovely Nicole and Jenny from bornprettystore.com who offered me up to three items (to the value of $12) of my choice. 
I was so excited by this, so went on their website straight away and gave it a browse. Born Pretty is an online shop who specialise in all kinds of jewellery, fashion accessories, nail art and cosmetics! With so many different products I was spoilt for choice. However after much thought I decided on three pieces of jewellery. 


These are the three I chose...


I decided on the vintage peacock feather necklace*, the colours in it are lush. Light green, deep navy and orange being the main colours meaning I can put this necklace with a lot of different colours and outfits. This necklace will add a cute vintage feel to an outfit :) 
I also chose a skull choker* which I love! It is a great length and will go with quite a lot of my clothes. The band is very soft but rigid enough to keep its shape. 


I also chose a skull ring* which is adjustable in size using the two skulls on either side.  This is amazing, I will wear this so much! 


Born Pretty were also generous enough to give you all a discount code for their store! You can get 10% off your order as well as that they offer free worldwide shopping! Just click on the image below, and don't forget to mention MET10 when you get to the checkout for your 10% off! 


Let me know what you chose, I would love to know :) 

Lastly, thank you so much Born Pretty, I will wear these to my hearts content!

The Mighty Christmas Jumper

Can you get anything better than sitting around full of food on Christmas Day wearing your new Christmas jumper?! No of course not!
They have been seen all over the high street these last few weeks, as they have seemed to become fashionable! Sounds ridiculous that, the 'tacky' christmas jumpers that your Dad wears on the big day are actually fashionable?! This can't be right, surely?

Well here's my favourite pick from the high street....


What do you think? Will you be wearing a Christmas jumper this festive season?

I'm thumpin'! That's why they call me Thumper! - Outfit

Bambi Jumper - Primark £10
H&M leggings - £7.99
Topshop boots - £42
Astrix boots Topshop - £42


Favourite jumper ever alert! Just like the Givenchy Bambi jumper, but a FRACTION of the price. It cost me a tenner from Primark! I know, amazing. I actually prefer the Primark version to be honest, not only because I could afford it. 
I wore it simply with leggings and my Topshop boots. Whatcha think?

The perfect pair of...


I am forever on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans, like many of you I'm sure. Jeans are a huge staple in my wardrobe, I love wearing them. They're so easy to create an outfit, especially in the winter months, when it's way too cold to wear a skirt with just tights, you really need something more substantial to keep you cosy.

I'm currently having to do the extensive task of going from shop to shop trying to find a pair of jeans that fit exactly how I want them too. Hoping that one day I'll will find THE pair of jeans.

I have been wearing Topshop jeans for years now, from Kristan High Waisted to the newer Jamie Ankle grazers, (which I buy in a longer leg so they're not ankle grazers, I don't want cold ankles!). However they are getting old now and I really need a good pair of black jeans, some that are made of REAL jean, not just thin cotton. I have looked into Levi's, trying on a pair of their high waisted black skinnies, the 28's cut me in half but the 29's felt too big. 
Along with my vertical challenges (short legs) and my high waist, means jeans just never fit how they should/how I would like. I would love to find a pair of jeans which fit, flatter me and most importantly go over my large thighs (Warehouse and Oasis, culprits of making jeans for people with tiny thighs!)
Someone help me, please? I'm looking for a pair of black high waisted good quality jeans…
Do you wear a certain pair of jeans that just fit amazingly or are you on the hunt like me for the perfect pair of jeans?
Thanks

Coveted Coats

coveted coats featuring, Garard Darel, Warehouse, Topshop, Noisy May and Vila

After leaving my house yesterday I couldn't believe how cold it had got! Bruuuur. So I have found a few coats, that I love love love. Ok I do have a Gerard Darel coat in there which costs £365, which is so far out of my price range it's ridiculous, but we can all dream right?!
As you can tell I have a thing for leather and tweed, they are my two favourite things in a coat - oh and warmth of course! 
Is there any coats you are coveting at the moment?

Overcast - Outfit

Whilst on twitter the other day, I was mentioned in a tweet by @fashvouchers saying I had won a £50 boohoo voucher. I was confused, I can't remember entering a competition but never the less, YAY! I went straight on the website and started browsing. I wasn't sure what I wanted so it took me a while to decide. But Today it arrived! 

I picked 4 things, making the total £61, including a floral shirt, which needs to be exchanged for another size, a grey swing vest and a grey (lots of grey) shall/throw/thing. But the first thing I decided to try on was this dress...

my cat is trying to get in on the photo

I never want to take it off! It's the Adriana Jersey long sleeve wrap dress, and it cost £15* - amazing value. I can see me getting a lot of wear out of this little number. The top does manage to reveal quite a bit if you're not careful, but I could easily wear a camisole underneath, leaving my modesty intact. I love how it is a sleeved dress but doesn't cover me up too much, making it super feminine, sexy but sophisticated. 

there she is again!

I decided to wear it with opaque tights and my brand new winter boots by Topshop. I picked these bad boys up last week when they were offering 20% off for students. They are the Astrix platform lace up boots, which are £42 (£34 with student discount). Seeing as my other Topshop boots have seen better days, I thought I would treat my feet! I try and buy only one new pair of expensive(ish) boots every year, as I love them and try and limit my boot addiction! It's so difficult, especially when the winter sale comes along. 
These boots are super comfortable and lightweight even though they look like they would weigh your legs down, but they really don't. I can not recommend these boots enough!

and again!

I picked up this ring last week in Topshop (again, same trip), I haven't bought jewlery from them in a while however I saw this and fell in love a little bit, it was £4.50, it does make my finger go a bit green, but nothing a bit of clear nail varnish can't sort out!


I am also wearing a necklace bought from Urban Outfitters in their last winter sale and my new favourite colour of nail varnish (again from Topshop) called Overcast, however the photo on their website looks completely different from the colour of it in real life. 


I hope everyones Monday has been good, if not least it's nearly over! :)

Eye Candy Eyelash Review

I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of fake eyelashes from Falseeyelashes.co.uk, who sell a large range of false eyelashes, make up tools and nail varnish's. Seeing as they sent me some false eyelashes to test out, I decided to make a video to show them off. I decided to try the Eye Candy strip lashes, which is a brand I've never heard of before so it was nice to be able to review them. They are in style 001 (£5.49*) which are described as looking super natural and easy to apply.



Before applying makeup/eyelashes


After applying makeup and eyelashes. 


They were quite difficult to apply, but that is probably because I don't wear fake eyelashes often, however if you were to use these more often they would become easier to apply. You can see more in my video below. 





They look huge. I quite like them though! 
What do you think? Do you have another brand that you like to use?

Something wicked this way comes - Black Milk Clothing X Hogwarts

Studs and Sparkles featuring Black Tied

I recently purchased my first piece of jewellery from Black Tied, an independent store which is based in Ireland. I had heard about their jewellery before through Lily Melrose's blog, where she near enough always wears something from Black Tied. I didn't know much about their jewellery, but after seeing a post from them on Twitter, about a particular 'blogger discount' I thought I may as well have a look. 
I saw they used real gemstones and metals, along with unique designs, which is a bonus in my book. After browsing their website for a while, I decided on two pieces, they go together perfectly, I know this as they are pictured together on the website. 
They arrived today, all wrapped up neatly in this lovely brown paper bag, each of the items inside were also packaged nicely in bubble wrap with a lovely 'thank you!' sticker on each. 


Both of the pieces are in rose gold, which is such a gorgeous colour and they are perfect with my fair skin. I originally wanted just the studded bracelet, however when I clicked the link it was pictured with this gorgeous gemstone bracelet. I just had to have both.


Whilst wearing the gemstone bracelet, I noticed the bright specs of light that surrounded the walls in my room. It is gorgeous, with millions of colours coming out of the stone. Meaning it will hopefully look great with most outfits.
Now that's what I like to see - versatility!
I'm hoping to buy some more of the studded bracelets, as they are just perfect. 


Has anyone else bought anything from Black Tied or any other independent jewellery shops?

Matte Top Coat by OPI

Last week I decided to buy some Topshop Matte Nail varnish, I bought two shades; Dress Up and Double Denim. However after wearing them for a day I found that they chipped really easily, so I needed a top coat that wasn't shiny. Whilst at work (John Lewis) I discovered OPI Matte Top Coat - perfect. It's quite pricey at £11.50, however I read a few reviews and it looked good. So I decided to try it. 



It is an interesting formula, which dries incredibly quickly and will also turn 'usual' nail varnishes into matte nail varnishes. Which is great so it gives you more versatility with your nail varnishes, so you don't have to repurchase the same shades in a matte effect.
It also protects the nail varnish so you know it will stay on, just like other top coats.

I first tried it with a 'usual' nail varnish (a shiny one), I decided to use a standard black nail varnish, from Barry M. I am not a huge fan of Barry M nail varnishes, but for the purpose of this I used it. The right side of the image is with the matte top coat, which I prefer compared with the left side.


(Sorry for the horrible state of my nails, I just really wanted to show you the effects of the varnish)


I then decided to try it out with the Topshop matte nail varnish, which I was surprised at, as it turned the varnish even more matte! The Topshop nail varnish is on a verge of being a true matte, however OPI just push it over the edge slightly, into a true matte shade. 
I love it, it was easy to apply and also as it dries so quickly you have the end result near on straight away. 

Again sorry for the state of my finger nails! 


I'm a huge fan of a matte effect on nails, as I don't think the high shine look suits my style.
What do you think about matte nail varnish, do you prefer a shiny finish or matte?

Bad Blogger

Hi everyone,

I have yet again been on a what seems like long hiatus, I have recently moved house and everything is still up in the air. My life seems to be going at 100mph and I can't get my head straight and I don't get to find the time to actually sit down and blog. At the moment it's 11.48pm and I've decided to tell you all why I'm not blogging at the moment.
I really do appreciate everyone who has stuck by me whilst I haven't been posting and I promise that when I get my head screwed back on and get a proper routine going again, I will start getting back to my regular posting self!

So what's actually been happening with me?

Well I moved house around about three weeks ago, and it has been a complete change of lifestyle for me. My new house, is completely different from my old one, I have moved to a place which has a 40 minute drive to work, uni and my friends houses.
So...everything is a bit of a mess, I don't seem to have time to just sit and blog or pop into town to see the latest bits hitting the stores. Window shopping basically. I am working full time for the summer, until I get back to uni in October, which is nice, but I can't wait to jump into my third and final (SCARY) year. I have so many ideas floating around in my head which I can't wait to tell you all about, all I'm going to say now is it's very exciting. Well I think it is anyway.

Please bare with me as I try and find my feet in my new area and things will hopefully get back to business as soon as possible. Oh and as soon as I buy myself a computer chair.
Thank you all again!

Primark Autumn Winter collection

Has everyone seen this amazing collection from Primark? I could not believe my eyes when I recently saw the photos of the grudgey winter style file. 
I couldn't be more in love with certain pieces in the collection, which include leather look skirts, tartan, dark geometric shapes and lace. I can't actually pick my favourite piece, they are nearly all amazing. They seem to have gone in a more 'Topshop' direction with their styling and colour palette. 
Here are a few of my favourites from the look book, dark and sombre with a hint of glamour. 
What do you think? These are due to hit Primark in the next coming weeks, along with some amazing accessories.

Peel off Nails? - Review


When I saw this nail polish in John Lewis Oxford Street, I knew I had to get it, mainly for the colour. It is gorgeous, just the right kind of blue, it's called 'on the blink' and cost £6. The basic principle of this nail varnish is that you can change your nail varnish as quickly and as often as you change your underwear! 

The main reason I bought this was the colour, but I also wanted to know how well it peels off, sounds silly right? Well as I'm working full time I like to paint my nails often, however I also like them to stay on all day. So this nail polish has it's positives and also it's negatives, like most nail polishes.

The positives is that the colour is gorgeous, it dries relatively quickly and is nice and shiny. Another thing that could be considered a positive and/or a negative is that is comes off within hours of wearing it. This nail polish isn't great if you want to wear it all day without it starting to peel off, however it's great if you like to change your nail colour a lot but don't always have nail polish remover left/around. 
It would be great on holiday, as I don't know if it's just me but I don't like to take nail varnish remover as it may leak in my luggage. So this would be brilliant, as you could paint your nails on the plane, but take it off again later if you wanted to use a different colour. 
I found that 20 minutes into starting work it had already started to come away from my nail, which was very annoying as I didn't have the polish with me! (Rookie error)
I wouldn't recommend this nail polish if you like having the same nail colour for a few days, but other wise the colour is gorgeous and it is really easy to apply. So definitely go for it, the colours are amazing! I wish they did the colours in their usual range of Topshop nails (please Topshop, please!)

Has anyone else tried this range from Topshop, what did you think?

Summer Breeze - Outfit


I had a day off, so I thought I would enjoy this sunny bank holiday, unfortunately I don't have many summer clothes. I went instead with a simple white tee (Neppy Tee - Topshop), my Jamie jeans (Topshop - £46), a Primark tweed blazer (£14) and my cute black wedge/flatform sandals. 

I went into town to get my hair cut at Rush in Southampton, a hairdressers I really recommend! They added a treatment to my hair, which has made it super soft and it feels so light, along with taking some length off. I really love it. 



I took these photos outside in my garden because it was such a lovely day. 
The necklace I'm wearing is an old purchase from Topshop, one of my favourite. 


The wedges were £19.99 in New Look, and I love them, they are so cute and go with a lot of outfits. I have painted my nails with a Topshop 'Peel off nails' range, in On The Blink. Review coming by the end of the week. 
Hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend!

Just another (two) week(s) #13

Hi everyone, long time no speak. Just to say sorry for the lack of posts these last few weeks, but thank you all for baring with me, I really appreciate it.
These last two weeks I've been throw into full time work at my current job, it's been a bit of a shock to my system, and finding a balance between work and play has proved to be difficult. Along with this we've been looking at houses to rent, and packing things away. Which is a pain when you've packed something that you need, but you can't remember which box it's in. But there you go, least I'm getting the packing done and not leaving it to the last minute. 


1. The boyfriend and I waiting at Thorpe Park for friends that went on Stealth. (we were too scared too)
2. The Swarm at Thorpe Park. 

3. Craig (my boyfriend) on the train to London on Monday to see The postal service at Brixton Academy.

4. Crazy floating man in covent garden, blew my mind!!

5, A Canadian pub in Covent Garden, with a nice cider to start the day (it was 3pm, we didn't start drinking in the morning)

6. Inside Brixton Academy, the blue lights are always awkward on Instagram. The gig was great though, we were sat in the circle, even though we thought we had standing tickets.

7. BEST DAD ALERT - he had made me sandwiches for Tuesday as I was getting home so late from London, he had also ironed my work clothes! 

8. My mini haul from London, including two Topshop nail varnish, Ciaté nail kit and some lipstick which doesn't suit me! I thought it did in the shop, but unfortunately not.

9. Another new purchase, which are from the eBay shop Zerouv, they were about £15 which I think is a great price for such awesome sunglasses! Unfortunately when I got them through three of the small flowers had come off, but I'm going to superglue them back on. It must have been the huge journey that had to be on to get to me!

10. Craig at Carlos ices and tea rooms, which is the place to go if you want to eat the best ice cream you have ever tasted! It's in hampshire, in East Wellow...look it up if you want to go to it, highly recommended.

11. A photo of the sunburst from my phone looking upwards, I think it looks quite arty. 

12. My ice cream waffle cone on the left, with Vanilla, mint choc chip and strawberry ice cream, then Craig's 1/2 a litre tub(!) on the right. (he ate it all!)

13. Craig and I on a bench outside after we had finished our ice creams.

14. My new mirror, which Craig bought me after we broke my mirror, whilst trying to paint it. We got it from Argos for £24.99 which isn't bad considering it is HUGE and goes well with the rest of my white furniture. 

I will be trying to post some reviews on some products this week, I only have Monday and Saturday off so we shall see how that goes, might have to start using the schedule button. 
Hope you're all ok!

Good Things come to those who wait

Good Things Soothing Body Butter Superfruit Extracts Coconut and Goji Berries

I recently got this from Boots, I say 'got' because I used my Boots points to buy it, so it was free! (Usually £5.99 for 300ml). I've never used the 'Good Things' range, however I had run out of a Sanctuary body lotion I got for Christmas, so I thought I would give it a go.

Firstly the packaging is really simple which is nice, I like the colours used and the doodles of flowers across the name etc. With the simple design it feels they may have put more thought into the actual product instead of the packaging, which is great. The next thing I realised is the smell, it smells AMAZING, it makes me want to eat it it, every time I apply it - it smells that good!
I was really impressed with the strength of the scent; in a good way of course, it stays on your skin for so long, the next day you can still smell it. Which personally I think is great.

The texture is very thick, which I wasn't too sure on, as I wasn't sure how it would apply or dry, but I was pleasantly surprised. It applies really smoothly and a little goes a long way, it also dries very quickly, which is good when you're in a rush to get out of the door in the morning.

Finally the most important thing to know with a moisturiser is how well it does it's job, and I would say it does it's job very nicely, with the added benefits of the amazing smell and quick drying time!

I would highly recommend this product, and will definitely be buying it when this one runs out, I may even try out the other products in the 'Good Things' range.

Has anyone else tried the Good Things range? 

Watch out Boots, I'm coming for you!

Outfit post - I'm on top of the world

Hi everyone! 
Currently listening to Imagine Dragons album, hence the title :) 
I'm so sorry for not posting in the last two weeks, bad blogger. Deadlines for uni came up and my blog took a bit of a back seat, but I have no submitted everything so that's it till October! 
How has everyone been? I will be doing a weekly post at the end of the week like usual, seeing as I missed this Sunday.
Just thought I would show you two of the three new additions to my wardrobe, which I bought yesterday in a mild panic that I had no summer clothes. 

Ok so I know I'm wearing a completely black outfit in 'summer', but to be fair it isn't sunny at all today, unlike the past week. I have bought something of colour for my wardrobe but it seemed silly to wear it today. 
The new aditions are the simple black skater dress from New Look, which I bought for £9.99. Just an easy thing to wear, when inspiration doesn't hit. 
I did however jazz it up a bit, by wearing my dotty tights from Primark, and my brand new amazingly cute shoes! 


These beauties are from New Look, they were £19.99 but I love them! They are flat forms with a slight wedge to them as well, which I found aren't as bad to walk in as I expected. I love the cute buckles on the side, they are also really comfy. 
I've needed 'summer shoes' for a while now, I always buy cheap ones every year and spend all my money on expensive boots for winter. Which is great when winter comes around, but the next summer I'm screwed because all my ones from last year are destroyed. 
Has anyone got any tips on good summery shoes around at the moment, I'm really struggling to find any that I like!
