Recent Purchases...

First off, apologies for being a bit absent recently, I've been a little bit busy!

I just thought I'd show you the fruits of my recent 'labours' - namely a couple of trips into London and Westfields - there's nothing like catching up with friends whilst surrounded by fabulous shops and delicious food :)

First up is something I've been working on for a while - my first ever Mac palette. I've been collecting mac eyeshadows for years now and I finally decided it made sense to buy a palette and save myself a bit of well as give myself something pretty to look at!

It's still 3 pans short (and I'm still not sure on the inclusion of Pink Venus) so any suggestions on what to fill it up with will be greatly appreciated :)

1st row: Nanogold, Pink Venus, Hypnotizing, Twinks
1nd row: Dazzlelight, Jete, Satin Taupe, Antiqued
3rd row: All That Glitters, Star Violet, Woodwinked, Carbon

I also popped into Topshop, but was pretty unimpressed by their offerings, apart from the shoes. I live in Topshop ballet pumps so whenever I see a pair I like, I get them and wear them to death. I have a real thing for anything horse related so of course thought these were ever so lovely - and for £28 they are great quality.

And last but not least is this little dress I found in Hollister. It's pretty summery but I think it'll help get me ready for spring and cheer me up in these cold days. It's super short so I'll probably only ever wear it with leggings, but I think this will get a lot of wear - especially in the sunshine :)

Anyone else picked up anything good recently? Am I mad for buying summer dresses when it's freezing outside?

  4. Oh good, I'm glad everyone approves of the dress - I felt a bit silly buying a flimsy frock in February but couldn't resist! x

    @Vicki - Aw thank you! I'm still getting used to it, but already thinking I may have to go a bit more vibrant is all about the red :) x

  5. You should check out 'Patina' eyeshadow by Mac - it suits any skintone and is a wonderful colour for a neutral eye!


I love your comments x
