I've been in and out of the SHoPs lately...

Friday, 31 July 2009

...and i've hauled a few things. Ok maybe "few" isn't the right word lol!

**Warning ~ Quite a lot of Pix!**
I mentioned a few other things in the video, so make sure you check it out!!

ZARA

I walked into Zara today, not really expecting to pick anything up but stumbled across these two lovely tops!

The first is a Plaid pattern Top (Will be really good on Blue Light wash skinnys or Leggings) that i got for only £19.90!



The next one is a black and white striped Tee that would be perfect with Bright red lips! At the BARGAIN price of £3.99! :D



LUSH

Believe it or not, but up until today i didn't own a thing from Lush! I knowww! lol
I bought a body butter bar called "Buffy" (which i'm going to try out and do a review on) and a Chocolate Mask ~ CupCake ~ for Oily and Teenage Skin. :) The lady that served us was so unbelievably pleasant. She gave us each a free sample of the Best Selling Body Lotion called "Dream Cream", so i will be trying that out also!




PRIMARK

These pair of Divine Gladiator wedges was what made me sooo happy last week! They are so gorgeous and the best thing was it didn't even cost much, only £6 from Primarni! lol ;) I believe there are still a few at the Flagship, but you're better off checking the local Store if you want to buy these, i think!



INTERNACIONALE

I coldn't resist getting these in ash! ;)


I also had to replace my headband that snapped so i picke this one up...£3.50!



MAC

Just picked up a few things i've been wanting for ages...Two shadows, Goldmine & Tempting + a backup for my fave lipglass, Entice!




TOPSHOP

My Fave store...never lets me down. I always find something nice. In this case was a Cream coloured Viscose Top that was on sale (down from £28 to £10) and a pair of Flared Jeans (£40) that i've been eyeing up for ages!!!






Whoa..that was a lot of stuff to write about!! lol


Anyhooo, here's the Vid!
There YouTube goes again...picking some OFF shot for the still! geez!




Chat to you all later!

Fashion Look & What's in my Bag/Purse!

Hello lovely people of Blogger World!


Just wanted to share with you my Fashion Look of today and show you What's in my bag/purse!

This look is so simple...Just Light wash skinnys with a Black tank.
The thing that brings the whole look together is the headband that i'm wearing, which can be bought from either primark, topshop, h&m or internacionale (where i got mine).

I accesorised the outfit with some bangles i bought recently from Primark and wore my Gold sandals and my New White Bag my daddy bought for me! Simples! :)




Here's the video...




Talk to you all soon!

Fashion Look - Pippa Skinnys & Gladiator Wedges :D

Sunday, 26 July 2009

Hey my beautiful people!

Sooo, this has to be one of my favourite outfits to date.

YOu know, sometimes i'm not too sure about pieces i put together, but I think this really works.

The top i'm wearing was originally bought for my Madre but she didn't like the way it looked on her...and instead of me taking the long ass trek back to Gap to return it, i threw it over my pippa skinnys and got this look!


I wore my New pair of Gladiator Wedges and accesorised the outfit with loads of Bangles and my fave pair of Earings!!


Picture Time! lol...




Top ~ Gap
Jeans ~ TopShop
Gladiator Wedges ~ Primark
Bangles ~ TopShop/Primark

It's really easy to emulate!



I hope you like it!

Have a great day everyone!!

MakeUp Look - Hot Pink Lips!

Friday, 24 July 2009

It's been ages since I wore this lippy (Boots 17 Lipstick in Pink Power) Last time i believe was in a Haul Vid...3Months ago and I forgot how nice it was!!

A great trick I came across...

After I applied the lippy, I blotted it with some tissue paper, re-applied it, then used my ring finger to pat the colour in just to smooth it out.
Voila!
Sexy Hot Pink Lips!


Don't you just love Bright Lipstick??
It's the easiest way to add Drama to any look i think!

My eye-makeup was very simple. A smooth Line of Liquid Liner followed by a volumising Mascara!

Same old same old for my Face...My Fave at the mo..MACs mineralise skin finish foundation in Dark and a bronzy blush for my Cheeks!

I'm sure you're wondering..."Where was she going to??"

Well I was off to B&Q to pick up some stuff! ;)
hehe

It was a bit chilly today (hence the Scarf ...which i got on Oxford St for a Fiver!) and rainy and dark and dull in London...
...Funny, I used to find days like this really depressing, until i read Twilight.
Now Rainy days actually make me Smile!
Weird, I know!

So yeah...here's me!



Talk to all of you soon!

Another Night Out in Soho && My OOTN

Monday, 13 July 2009

Yup another one!

My Friend Didi and I Spent the Better Bit of Thursday Night in Soho!

Can you imagine, we actually touched down on not one,
but Two Parti
es! :O

It was really fun and the atmosphere around the CiTy was so Lively, as always is! We saw old buddies and made new ones.

I mentioned in an earlier post that i was going to post about a haul, but what i got is actually what i wore on the night out so...

...killing two birds with one stone Post! lol.

It took me quite a while to find something nice, because when sales are on they don't usually bring out the good stuff...i know this, I've worked in Retail! Amazing the things you find out tho!

Anyhoo, I stumbled across this dress in River Island. I was so excited when i found that it fit, because it was the last one on the rail.
God really does Love me! hehe.


Here I am getting ready at Didi's Place...



I paired the dress with my FAVE Clubbing Shoes and Black Clutch (also from River Island)...





{::{ TREND ALERT ~ YELLOW HEELS }::}


Rihanna in Yellow Heels...So BuFf! :D

My makeup was really simple, Eyeliner, falsies etc and My new Lippy from Mac (ChatterBox).

Some more pix
from the Night...









We had FuN!!

:D

Hope you all had a fab Weekend, and I wish you a good Week!

Beauty Review - Dead Sea Spa Black Mud Beauty Mask

Saturday, 11 July 2009

Hello All!
Hope everyone's having a good day!

As you probably already know, I have very Sensitive skin on my Face and
I'm not too adventurous when it comes to trying out new products...


...but i tried this one.

Price: £35.00
ON THE BOX:
Extra Mild Black Mud, specifically formulated for sensitive skin.
Consists if 40% Black Mud and 60% moisturizing and soothing components.

This unique formula protects the natural pH balance of your skin and guards it from the harming effects of climate, fatigue and age.
~~~
I bought this mask in January this year, but I only started using it in March. I didn't blog about it straight away because i wanted to see how my skin responded to it. I've been using it every Saturday Evening, for the past 16 weeks and the benefits are tremendous.

Application Process

It can be applied straight from the tub or it could be warmed up before use.
I personally prefer using straight from the tub.

At first there is a slight tingle but you can feel the product working on your skin.
It dries very quickly, but you can still move your face.
(lol, what..."move your face"...Couldn't think of a better explanation, sorry!)

Removal Process

The beauty of this mask is that it comes of easily. Not messy.

Afterwards

It always leaves my Skin feeling soft, smooth and bump-free.
Redness in my problem areas has also reduced and my complexion seems a lot more even.

So what are the Pros & Cons??

Pros ~ I'm left with radiant looking skin.
Cons ~ Quite Pricey!

Verdict

A really good weekly treatment for your skin.
Helps with breakouts, uneven skin tone and reduces too much shine.

Fashion Look - Faux Denim Shirt Dress :)

Wednesday, 8 July 2009

+ Random Talk!

Hey ladies!


So today, i had to go return my books back to 6th form, because they've been pestering me to do so for ages!

I don't understand why the school still needs to send letters home, threatening that i wouldn't get my results if i don't hand the books in. I'm friggin' 19 m8, How silly!

I must admit, I've been a bit lazy...i just couldn't be bothered to TREK all the way to West London (I live in North London), just to hand in Maths Books!

But I finally did.
yay.

Enough ranting!

The weather was quite odd today...
...as it almost always is, so i decided to wear something flexible...



I wore my fave leggings with a simple tank and my DADA's old Shirt to serve as a faux denim shirt dress. (Gosh, I miss him.)

{::{ TREND ALERT: Denim Shirt }::}

I accessorised it with a skinny belt and Plaid Shoes...very CuTe, i must say!

Tank ~ H&M
Leggings ~ TopShop
Blue Shirt (Dad's) ~ T.M. Lewin
Belt ~ Primark
Red Plaid Shoes ~ Primark

...and my LV bag, Vintage Style, hehe!



Thanks for stopping by!

I went out with my bff Yday to Westfield to do some Summer Shopping (haul for that l8r), and to pick up this lipstick i've been wanting for ages ~ Chatterbox...

...I love it. It's matte finish and the colour is soo Gorj!

...

I also found this really neat MakeUP Store called INGLOT.
Have you heard of it??



Anyway, it's a Polish makeup brand, New to the UK and I believe their only store is the one in Westfield.

Let me tell you...The Stuff they had was AMAZING!

Eyeshadows, blushes, nail polishes, brushes etc



And the store was filled with sooo much colour, i felt like i was a kid in a Candy Store.

lol

I found really cool Dupes for some MAC Products that were slightly cheaper...
...but seeing as i'm trying to Save up, I Couldnt splurge as much as I wanted to.

I did manage to get my hands on a two lipglosses though(£8 ea.)...



56 ~ Sort of like a bubblegum pink
61 ~ This one's like browny orange

They are very very Pigmented and come out soo well.

Hopefully i'll be able to get down there soon and purchase some more!!

Just thought i'd share it with you guys.

When we got to the Cinema ~ after having our Hot Peri Peri Nando's Chicken ~ we were unsure as to which movie to go for...

...There's been sooo much buzz (+ve & -ve) about the movies Transformers 2 (Primarily becoz of the HOT Chick Megan Fox ~ and i don't doubt that, She IS Hot!) and The Hangover (dubbed funniest movie of the year).

We weren't really in the mood for pointless Robot Fights, so we decided to go for the Comedy!

GREAT DECISION!

Becoz it was Incredibly Hilarious!

I've never laughed so hard, i really gave my stomach a good workout!

If you havn't seen it i don't want to ruin it for you, but i would say that my Fave Character was "Fat Jesus"! LOL
