Weekly want #4

Topshop £34
Had to do another weekly want cos I mean, how cute are these babies?! I love anything with a cute print but these are ridiculous! They do these in a jean version also but, I think patterned and printed shorts are a lot more versatile, tights for winter, dressed up on a night out, bare legs and plain top for summer.

I need these in my wardrobe so bad! Might have to stick them on my topshop card (yes I have one but, I'm VERY sensible with it) seeing as i can't really justify buying shorts in October!

I'm heading up to Edinburgh for la weekend and can't wait, seeing as it's Halloween me and my friends are dressing up, we're being the living undead, being all gory and doing all our make-up should be fun :D I'll post a picture to show you how scary we look.

Happy Feet

My parents go away and they leave me with a selection box of biscuits and bacon, my family know me too well. There will be no biscuits left by tonight though, I'm telling you!
With the house to myself, I decided to give myself a quick pedicure here's my quick pedi method..
  • Fill a bowl with warm water and a drizzle of Olive oil and dip feet in
  • Leave for a good ten minutes to soften skin
  • Use a pumice stone to rub off any hard skin
  • Dry off feet with a towel and smoother in an intensive foot cream (I use Neutrogena nourishing foot cream)
  • Trim toenails and paint in your chosen colour (I did mine in Models Own - Mystic Mauve)
Et voile! Happy feet!

Sorry if you don't like feet!

Much Love

Weekly want #3

Haven't posted for a while so thought I'd better post my weekly want! I've been after a satchel like this for a while (aka a Mulberry Alexa-like!) and this  is a lovely colour, it'll brighten up any outfit especially when it's so dull out. How cold has it got?! I do enjoy wrapping up warm and I've got my eye on soooo many coats but I know I shouldn't, must save money for Christmas shopping! I'm one of those people that leave things till last minute but this year I'm determined not to!

Just spotted some ombre jeans in River Island as well, I feel a DIY coming on!

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong

Actual LOL at my face behind

Sooo, got my hands on some magnetized nail varnish. It's 17 @ Boots and I got three colours (Blue, Lilac & Grey) as it was 3 for 2 :) I've got the Grey on my nails in the above picture and I love love love it, such a cheap and quick way of getting an effect that looks like it should have taken hours. Good if you're not fantastic at nail art or don't have the time.

This is also such a nicer effect than the crackle stuff that's around at the moment, I just don't like it at all (my Model's Own Smash-up hasn't grown on me unfortunately!) I'm pretty bored so I'm studding anything I can get my hands on, which means off to eBay I go to buy more denim and studs before I run out.

The details in the fabric

Dress - £45 Asos
I took these pics on my crappy finepix camera
so excuse the quality!

I saw this little number on asos a few weeks ago and thought it was a little pricey for what it is, so treated myself to it when I found a 20% off code that came through my post with my asos mag. I love the lace detail collar and around the sleeves, makes such a simple piece stand out. This colour is my favourite for autumn/winter I've been buying so much stuff in this shade.

I'm just having a quick look through the Asos mid-season sale at the moment, too much stuff I want! However, there's also stuff I've already got, one playsuit I got a few months ago is down to £8 from £40. Gutted! Looking through all the beauty stuff, which I usually skip and there are loads of brands that I wouldn't usually go for because of the price that are on sale such as OPI, Nails inc and Paul & Joe, so it's worth a rummage!

I also did a little bit of my hair bright pink the other day, you can just see it peeking through my hair, not sure whether to do all my dip dye pink or not!?!

Hotel California

Top - Topshop, Skirt - Motel
Please excuse the messy room -
I'm in the middle of a massive clear out :(

I Treated myself to this lovely skirt seeing as motel had 20% off for a few hours the other night, I absolutely love this print and am so tempted to get the jeans as well! Maybe when I feel a little more daring!

Can't wait to wear this skirt on a night out, body con skirts are my fail safe for a night out and it's nice to have one that's a little more jazzy that I can just wear with a block colour top. Really happy with the purchase as I always am with motel and can't wait to wear it out :)

She prefers two lumps of sugar and tea

So yesterday was mostly spent recouperating from Saturdays nights antics (which means lots of tea and a trip to Mcdonalds!). One of my besties turned 21 so it would have been rude to have not gone out and celebrated! I had such a good night (probably something to do with all the alcohol I consumed!), and it was the busiest I've seen derby for a long time. I think it's good to let your hair down every once in a while and it was nice to not have to work a Saturday night as well.
No Make-up and stiil in my PJ's at midday :)

I got myself a new outfit, managing to do it on a bit of a budget for a change! I got a top that I knew I'd wear again again (one reason being that it's leopard print!) so therefore that makes it amazing value in my eyes, it was £16.99 from New Look. I'm really getting into anything that's leather and black at the moment! I'm still after the perfect leather jacket but my money won't usually stretch far enough for me to treat myself to one :( anyway, I saw this skirt in primark, unfortunately it's not leather but it's looks pretty nice for something faux and it was only £14, I know I'll wear it again probably dressed down for daytime.

Finally, I've managed to get myself some plain black shoe boots! These babies were £24.99 from New Look and these will be worn until they break! I have quite an eclectic taste in heels but can never seem to find a trusty pair of black ones that I really like and are reasonably priced, however these totally fit the bill. New Look shoes don't usually tend to fit me well, a 6 being too small and a 7 too big, but these are a 6 and fit rather well. My feet are aching from them but that's what heels were mad to do, right?!

P.S - That nail varnish is the magnetized one I've been harping
on about from 17, look out for a review soon!

Weekly Want #2

Dress £45, Miss Selfridge

Everyone likes a pretty day dress and this one from Miss Selfridge is no exception. I saw it ages ago but resisted temptation in store, however I caved today and went to order it online (free delivery over £40 this weekend ;) ) but they only have it in size 4! I'll have to keep on eye on it and see if they get it back in stock and nap it up quick style! I've had a look around online and now I'm being tempted by some scallop edge shorts which I can't justify buying and I'm trying to be good but I my will power isn't strong enough to resist free delivery!

Hope you're all having a good Sunday :)
