Biker Boots and Stripes

Jumper - Dorothy Perkins
Green Skinny Jeans - Miss Selfridges
Boots - Store Twenty One? Maybe..
Thin Brown Belt - H&M
Long Gem Ring - Topshop
Heart Band Ring - H&M (part of pack of 5)

Brrrrr how cold is it today!? With the weather suddenly dropping (much to my dislike) I had to wrap up incredibly warmly today to avoid freezing to death at college. Today my look was pretty much out together for the warmth factor to be honest! I was wearing my favourite pair of skinny jeans which are a deep green colour and totally lush, from Miss Selfidges. I cannot for the life of me remember the exact price but i think it was along the lines of about £35, not to bad for a good standard pair of jeans in my book:D I love love love the jumper i'm wearing as it's so warm and cosy plus I really like both the stripes and colours (black and stone). Now i'm pretty sure this was from Dorothy Perkins, and around the £30 mark, which is good seeing as it's lasted me ages! Just my standard jewellery of rings, my watch and my swallow earrings which unfortuantly are going slightly rusty as i've worn them so much:( *sob* Also I got to wear my gorgeous boots today which even though they have a heel are so darn comfortable! Plus with thick socks they are so warm and do normally manage to keep my toes snug as a bug in a rug:) I think these are actually from Store Twenty One...wait is that right? oh well yeah there from somewhere really unexpected like that and I believe they only cost me £12 which is amazing as their sooooo sturdy and just well i love them. End of Story.

Anways I cannot believe how freezing it has been today, walking home i couldn't feel my fingers, toes or legs; no matter how many layers I put on! Though I had cheesy chips for dinner which definatly perked things up a bit, and now i'm just waiting to see it it'll snow in the night and fingers crossed I get a day off college tomorrow!

Grey & Black

Hi guys! Thought today i'd do a 'outfit of the day' post as I haven't done one in a while. I'll admit normally i'm really lazy and cannot be bothered to take photo's of myself as I just don't have the time, but with half an hour spare this evening i thought why not?:) It's not a very interesting outfit today but I like the simplicity of it im honest. I brough this grey jersey dress yesterday from good old new look and I love it! The fabric is lovely and comfy, and it's so easy to just throw on with tights and boots, as I did today. Plus it only cost me 88p! How crazy is that!? Okay so it was orignally £8.99 but with my student discount card, plus some money left on a new look card from christmas i only had to pay 88p:D Massive bargin in my book!

My newest accessorie (excuse awful spelling!) recently is this trilby hat, and i literally live in it! I had a straw one from last summer but i really wanted a black one so it would go with everything, and i managed to grab one for a fiver in the peacocks closing down sale, RESULT:D I've noticed that i'm really into dark colours at the moment like blacks and greys, bit odd as i normally love bright things but hey ho, maybe it's just the depressing weather...
P.S excuse such bad photos! desperatly in need of a new camera!

Topshop Wish List

Ahh Topshop. Now i'm one of those people who go through phases of liking absoloutly everything in Topshop one week and then the next liking nothing at all, but i can definatly say that after looking at it earlier there is so much stuff that i love and need in my life! It's when you look at your basket and get that sinking feeling as it says Total: £300. Lets just say my weekly income does not cover that!

Now i've got to say one of my favourite peices here has to be the floral lace top! It is so cute, and very spring/summer, but for about £24 i'm debating whether it is worth it? Ahh decisions decisions! The 'O' jumper is not actually something i would normally go for, but i think it's so gorgeous and the pale mint colour is lovely, such a bit hit for the upcoming spring, with all the pastel colours flying around i think, and teamed with those black shorts, or the studded leggings...oh man i want it so desperatly! Basically everything here i want want want but sadly i have like zero money at the moment so i think i will have to wait a fair while before i can buy anything:( well a girl can dream ey!

MUA Make Up

Hello fellow bloggers! I hope you all had a fabby Christmas & New Year:D My first post of the new year is a review for some new make-up I purchased the other day from Make Up Acadmay aka MUA. Now i've never used anything from this brand before and I have no idea why because it is soooooo cheap! I actually had to go and check with the store person because I thought I was being a complete fool and reading all the wrong things but no - it was really was super cheap!

Now that first thing I wanted to get was some primer because after seeing other people's blog loads of people were going on about using a primer before putting on your foundation in order to create a smoother complexion and shizz. At only £4 I thought this was probally a nice cheap option to test it out first time, and it's comes out of the tube a white colour, but after rubbing it in it fades to clear, and although slightly sticky at first once I put my foundation ontop it was fine! It seemed to keep my foundation in place for longer, and actually it did even out my complexion quiet considerably, so big winner all round there!
Blusher - Shade 6:
Moving onto the blusher I brought, the colour in the picture doesn't look that great, and excuse my extremely dirty make-up brush featured in the picture! Such a bad person and should probaly clean it more than I do! Anyways, I would describe the colour as a kind of burnt raspberry which I think is lovely. It gives a slight rosey-ness to my cheeks and although it doesn't stay in place all day, being such a small compact it's easy to just pop in your bag and take it anywhere with you! Plus it was only £1! So such a bargin to be honest:D which means a happy me!
Pressed Powder - Shade 2:
Just ran out of my powder so was in dire need of a new one, and again at £1 I just had to buy this one and try it out. It's a medium shade, and is actually surprisinly good! Being so cheap it can effect how good the products are, but I think if your short of cash and looking for a cheap little fix this is a really good product to get.
Bronzer- Shade 3:
Now i'm not the only person out there who likes to look like they have a slight tan, especially in the winter when it's all cold and your all white and bleugh! I don't like to go overboard on the bronzer as I think it can look streaky and abit weird sometimes, but you only need a little bit of this to give a nice slight brown tone to your face. I got this in a shade 3 which was quiet a dark one, I think shade 4 was the darkest? But anyways again only costing £1 it's just a nice cheap product that I think gives quiet a nice finish.:D

Now the last thing I got from MUA which was abit of a surprise was a FREE eyeshadow pallett called immaculate collection which literally has so many colours in it! The lady at the till gave me a nice little surprise when she told me that if I spend over a certain amount (can't actually remember how much it was!) on the MUA range then this came 100% totally free! And I like free things:D I haven't actually tried any of these out yet, but I am super excited too, and all the colours are making me very very excited indeed! Especially the gold shimmery one. Ekkkkkk!

So guys that's it, hope you've all had a lovely day!
