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?

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...

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, 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.

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?
