I'm really loving round sunglasses at the moment, their retro edge is perfect for mixing up my outfits and adding something extra. ...

The emerald looking necklace you see in the photos was purchased from Instagram of all places. I came across a boutique on there called Personal Palace and managed to bag this for under £15. It's pretty sleek looking and has been absolutely dazzling in all the recent sun we've had. It dazzles so much, the light bouncing off of it has driven my kittens up the wall - literally!
For those of you fasting, I hope it's going well for you so far! My headaches haven't quite subsided yet, it must be the body craving its caffeine fix. *shakes like a junkie*
So last Friday I braved the summer sun and headed in to the City Centre for the Sample Sale at Label PR in the Northern Quar...
I've been fascinated with the ocean ever since I was a young girl. It's common knowledge that 70 - 75% of the earth's surf...
One of the great things about the ocean is the variation in colours and shades: swirls of light blues and greens from the water and coral in some places; deep, dark, terrifying blues in others. So as a little beauty-based homage to our beautiful oceans, I decided to give Ombre Nails another go.
Whilst Barry doesn't quite have that same mystique, he definitely doesn't disappoint either with his range of shades! The Gelly range has a number of unique colours with a super glossy finish. It's a shame the longevity is pants, else it'd be near perfect.
I applied a generous amount of each colour, lined up next to each other on the sponge. Then I began dabbing the sponge directly on to the nail, moving it up and down slightly to blend the colours into each other. Of course sponges have loads of tiny little bubbles in them, leaving the nails a little bumpy, so to iron out these bumps I applied two layers of top coat
At this point the nails will look messy as anything as the colours will have rubbed off onto your skin around the nails. I used to peel these bits off in the shower, but now I use an old eye-liner brush, dipped in nail polish remover and brush over the messy edges.
Once I've finished with the bath sponge I'll most likely purchase a make-up sponge instead. I mean it's great and everything but I think the flatness of the make-up sponge will make the whole process even easier!

Hello hello! As you may have read in one of my previous posts, I've become more than just a little obsessed with midi dresses of la...
As simple as this dress may appear to be, it still manages to feel quite dressy. The asymmetrical cut of the skirt, the flowiness to the dress and the simple studded detailing around the shoulder just oozes class. If I were to wear this out for a celebratory occasion though, such as a certain ex-manager's leaving do, I'd have to pop an embellished crop-top over it.
You'd be quite right! I can't recall having ever featured a handbag in any of my OOTD posts over the years. A big thumbs up to Primark then for producing this stunning ZARA-esque bag and retailing it at only £10! I almost fell over when I saw that a bag of this quality in Primark, I began questioning life, the universe and everything.
When I got it home, it turns out that even little Wilhelmina loved it too, so much so that she often sleeps inside it! It was so good I had to go out and get another, one for me and one for her! HA!

I've always been one of those people that is easily sucked in by pretty looking eyeshadows at make-up counters, takes them home, stores them safely away in my pretty eyeshadow drawers and lets them gather dust. One time, I even found one of those teeny little yellow Selfridges bags stuffed under my bed with a few shadows in it. The receipt said it must have been under there a good 6 months. OOPS!
Anyways, my storage area was looking a bit full and cluttered so I had a little re-organisation to make space for more stuff and I came across so many beautiful shadows that I'd forgotten all about. There was only one thing for it: I had to start using them more often!
From that moment on I've got right back into experimenting and playing around with my eyeshadows to the point where I'm now instinctively applying it in the mornings. I have to say though, I didn't think I'd EVER use a yellow eyeshadow! All that changed just a couple of weeks ago when I purchased the Sleek Ultra Matte Palettes: Bright V1 and Dark V2.
One on particular day, I was in a bit of a rush for a dinner I had, I picked up the palettes and for some reason unbeknown to me I picked out the yellow from the Bright V1 and applied it around the eye. Probably due to the rushed nature of the moment I wasn't thinking: "What if it all goes horribly wrong? Cleaning it up takes time BA-ZITCH!"
