So get your leather leather leather onnnn...

Both of these great little finds are a really purse-friendly version of some of Topshop's best-selling products. 
I have wanted a pair of the Alvin boots for ages, but have been umming and ahhing over the £90 price tag. Thanks to LLYMLRS's LookBook, I found these amazing little ankle boots for only £24.95 on eBay. They're not real leather, so they're not going to last as long as the real deal, but I think they're a great little pair of boots.

Another Topshop gem I've had my eye on, is the leather-look skater skirt, and not even this one in particular... I have seen real and faux-leather skater skirts dancing all around my uni campus, style blogs and the streets of Liverpool and I think they're so cool. I recently set out to buy one and found this really cheap version from Miss Guided for an amazing £9.99! Again, the quality isn't as good as Topshop's; but for that cheap, I can't complain.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Okay, so I'm really late to the party on this one... but I finally have the Urban Decay Naked Palette. 
There are 100s of reviews on this bad boy, so I need not repeat anything that has already been said about this palette. 
But I will say this - every single shade looks gorgeous and I cannot wait to use them and create lots of varied looks. It is sitting pride of place on my dressing table.


NOTD : Essie Sugar Daddy

A very pretty pale pink - perfect for when you don't want a bold colour or bare nails.

Sunday Summary : Week #4


Sunday Night Pamper

It's the end of another week, which means my Sunday Night Pamper. I relax and unwind, whilst preparing for myself for Monday morning.
This week's pamper night included:
Aussie 3 Minite Miracle reconstructor conditioner
My new favourite hair product. It smells gorgeous and really leaves my hair feeling soft and nourished.

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub
An essential during winter, keeps my lips smooth and healthy.

Lush Dream Cream
Helps my hands to feel moisturised as they have been busy making snowmen and throwing snowballs this week.

Lush Big Sea Salt Shampoo
Incredible. Amazing scent and gives my hair volume and texture.

The Body Shop  Almond Oil cuticle balm
Really helps my nails to stay strong and healthy, increases growth rate too.

Lush Karma Bubble Bar
Relaxes and unwinds a stressful mind, creates heavenly bubbles and a comforting scent.

Liz Earle Nourishing Treatement Mask
My skin has been exposed to really cold and harsh weather this week, and this nourishing mask has really made a difference to care for my skin.

I'm 100% ready for a new week...

Lush Review : Cinders Bath Bomb

So I am sadly coming to the end of my Christmas stock (which happily means another trip to Lush is needed soon) and I have been saving this particular Bath Bomb for a very cold winter's day. It has been snowing this week in England, and this warming Cinders Bath Bomb was just what I needed after a day out in the snow. Almond essential oil, sweet orange oil and cinnamon leaf oil give a smooth fruity scent with a touch of spice, whilst the popping candy sounds like a relaxing crackling fire.
I used this Bath Bomb with my favourite face mask and shampoo for a real pamper on a cold winter's night.

Lush Review: Lip Scrub

I bought the Popcorn Lip Scrub in the Christmas 50% sale, and I wish I'd have bought it sooner. The cold and harsh winter weather really chaps lips and this lip scrub is amazing at gentle removing dead skin and flakiness. It tastes good enough to eat (however, after removing dead skin I wouldn't recommend it) and leaves lips clear and moisturised. Definitely a winter must-have!
I would advise using a lip balm after the lip scrub to leave lips feeling extra nourished.

OOTD : Snow Day!

I love the snow, but not so much getting cold and frostbite. So today I wrapped up all snuggly and warm to go and play in the snow:
Gillet: Jack Wills
Scarf: Mulberry
Hat: River Island
Jumper: Jack Wills
Jeans: TK Maxx
Gloves: Primark
Wellies: Hunter

I hope everyone is enjoying the snow as much as I am! and also taking care when going out.

Soap & Glory Mascara and Eyeliner Review

These are my favourite combination of mascara and eyeliner. I receieved the Thick & Fast Mascara free in a copy of Elle magazine last year, fell in love with it and purchased my 2nd recently; I use it day and night. The Supercat Eyeliner pen was purchased after reading numerous blog reviews about it, and thought I'd give it a try as I needed a new eyeliner anyway.
The masacara adds length and defines each lash, and if wiggled at the base of the lash, creates volume too.
The eyeliner went on really smoothly and is really easy to create a winged effect.
I love both of these products and will definitely be repurchasing them when they run out.
