Hi-de-hi!

Some time last week, I stumbled across a clothing website which had me in complete awe. They had incredibly gorgeous dresses in abundance, blouses & tops which you would find in Topshop for double or even triple the price.


Why didn't I know about them earlier?

Anyway, I ordered a dress that reminded me of a top I bought from Topshop. The dress has the most gorgeous embellishment on it shaped in the form of a lightning bolt, just like the top I bought from Topshop a few months ago which actually cost me £30+ where as this dress cost £28.99.

I received my parcel from them earlier this week and couldn't wait to wear it out. So yesterday, I wore it out for a meal with the boy :)

The sleeves! Look at those sleeves!

Check out that embellishment! I swear, if this was sold in Topshop it would probably cost at least £50. In case you can't tell I'm having a real love/hate relationship with Topshop at the moment.

I am LOVING the whole sheer sleeve trend going around just now, and my wardrobe is quickly being crammed up with sheer sleeved anythings!

This ring is absolutely stunning. I'm not sure what's it's even supposed to be. But in my opinion, the bigger the ring, the better! Hehe!

And because it was pretty cold yesterday and I didn't fancy wearing my coat over the dress, I put on trusty cardigan from Primark which was around £8.

The lipstick I'm sporting here in Barry M's Lip Paint in 'Sunset'. I think it's a pretty new colour. This is definitely a spring/summer colour, it had a mixture of Coral & Red. Lovely.

Hope you've all a wonderful weekend. I've been super busy. And I've also been doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Just completed Day 8. And I can already see a difference, especially on my waist. Last time I quit on Day 11, Level 2 played havoc on my wrists :S

  2. Omg you're doing the 30 day shred? You need to do a review on this please, as I want to try it, but just not sure! Is it hard? Love your dress, and just went on that site and liked a few of the day dresses. Check out in love with fashion.com - they have some really nice things too :-)

    I love 30 day shred! I'm finally finding level 2 easy! Before I used to collapse on the floor after it! I prefer Jillian Michaels Banish Fat Boost Metabolism - you can see instant results! You should try it after 30 day shred :)

  9. Thanks, guys! :)

    @ Tass - Ahaha, I could, couldn't I? Wonder if I can find a ring bigger than this? Chances are looking pretty slim. xx

    @ Shameera - I'm on Day 8. If I do complete I'll be sure to do a review on it. :) Thanks for the webiste, will check it out :) xx

    @ Roshas - I'm hoping Level 2 will be easier this time around. I saw your review on the other DVD, sounds quite frightening at it's pretty long. But nonetheless, must be purchased! xx

    @ Amina - The mascara is fit. I bloody love it. I'd say it's similar to YSL's Faux Cils, no joke! Although, sometimes it can clump, always a downside, isn't there?! xx
