Dolled up!

If anyone knows the importance of a good night out - It's me!
Apologies for neglecting the blog, a lot has been going on, but I now have a lot to blog about so s'all good aye babba's!


The famous Ann Summers socks have made their debut! As well as the most 'in your face' shoes I own.  

Excuse the 'red eye corrector'... I realise it has made my eye look abit wacky! But it's better than looking like a devil child. 
This is of course the beautiful dress I hadn't quite managed to get a good picture of yet, may I also apologise for the phone in between the boobs trick. (classy, I know).

And finally... as you can tell - my tongue is doing just fine! Minus it being bright red from the 'go go juice'.

Did it again!

Spend £8 on MUA products and you receive the Immaculate collection palette FREE!
I could have just bought the palette and been done with my online shopping however my mind does not work that way and of course I wanted the £8's worth of products too. Makes sense...
I am hoping they will arrive tomorrow so check back to see what I've got!

It's okay...

I really struggled tonight to think of something to blog about. I'll put it down to being totally smitten and having butterflies like you wouldn't believe - seems not being able to focus is a common side effect of the above. 
I'll make no excuses for being totally lame, I can not help it...
I've been trying really hard over the past few months to make everything 'perfect' in my life and in all honesty, the harder I tried, the worse things seemed to get, so a few weeks ago I decided to be happy living for the moment and without trying at all, everything felt a lot better.
Things will fall into place when they are meant to, you can't force it.
Even if things fall apart you should be able to remember how amazing it was when it was right.
I imagine there will be a personal meaning behind this post for everyone, take it as you will.
I'm not even sure why I felt the need to write this, I guess some things we just need to get out.

Hey! So these are the pictures of what I came home with yesterday :)
I couldn't get a nice picture of the dress but you can take my word for how stunning it is! aha.

Catch up!

Hey Babbas!
Hope you're all good.
I've not had time today to charge up my camera so it is now refusing to stay on quite long enough to upload any pictures, so I figured i'd just do a little catch up blog and tomorrow i'll put the pictures up :)
I've had a really good time with Jordan today, when you have a friend that you don't see or talk to all the time but when you do see each other, you are just as close... don't let them go.
I've ended up with some really lovely buys! Even though I was absolutely, under no circumstances, supposed to spend any money today (but when has that ever stopped me).
I've got a stunning pair of over the knee socks with little bows on the front from ann summers, a lacey dress from river island, a pink bandana for my pin up days and some anchor earings from Fourleaf clothing.
Also ended up with a tongue piercing - the things you do in the moment :S
Pretty successful day i'd say.
What's the most dramatic thing you've done in the spur of the moment?

Own up!

Confessions week is here girls!
My guilty pleasure has still not changed since I revealed it on the More! website, so here's a little reminder:

Oh dear.

Kicking the habit.

Hey babba's!
I'm hoping that a lot of you read my blogs for More! 
If you did then you'd know that for one week a few months ago I decided to test out the 'wearing sexy underwear can make you feel just as confident as a face full of makeup' theory.

Kicking makeup to the curb was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. That may sound silly but i'm the girl who wont even go downstairs in her own house without a bit of slap on... 
When you start to realise you're using makeup as a mask rather than an emphasis, it's probably not a good sign.
Turns out wearing your prettiest lingerie does really boost your confidence.
Lesson one learned - how you feel about yourself should over power how you feel about what other people think of you.
Funny how what seems like such a silly challenge can make you realise such a big thing.

If someone took your makeup away, what would you replace it with to keep you feeling gorgeous?

All that Glitters...

So while most girls are buying their Christmas dresses - I'm buying Christmas shoes and what a pair of shoes they are! The pictures don't do them justice.
They may have stolen £70 out of my bank but I can safely say they are possibly the prettiest things I own.
River island, I may just love you a little bit.

Benefit ~ The bad habit.

I don't know if it's just me or every girl's worst habit but I quite literally can not walk past a makeup counter, the worst being Benefit.
I'm either being sucked in for a makeover and then of course you HAVE TO buy something (it would be rude not to) or minutes after the 'i'm just looking' lie has slipped out - i'm heading over to the counter with a bag full of goodies.
It's a habit that really must be kicked, but then I wouldn't have ended up with my latest purchase... okay, purchases.
Technically I only bought 2 things, as the mascara and liner were being sold as a limited edition duo for £20, Score!

I highly rate most Benefit products and would definitely suggest going to a Benefit counter to have a play around with all the goodies.
What are your best buys from Benefit?

Little Lady

Feeling quite the grown~up today after arranging to go for a glass of wine and lunch with my beautiful friend, Jordan.

After a lovely 2 days with the boy who puts a smile on my face, I can't think of a better way to end my week than with a catch up and girly day with one of my bestfriends.

I guess there is a deeper meaning behind this post than simply feeling more sophisticated than usual, I think what I am trying to say is that, I've spent a lot of time lately worrying about money and presents and whatnot, seeing as it is that time of year again! But what's really important is the people you have in your life and the time that you spend with them. 
Never take for granted the people that make you happy.

What's that scent?

Certain things remind you of certain people, my 'trademark' is probably my perfume. 
My top 3 scents right now are:
       Diesel  ~ zero plus
             Benefit ~ So hooked on Carmella
             Natural Collection ~ Vanilla Body Spray

Each has a rather large price difference but all of them smell amazing and have great staying power
I also adore Miss Dior Cherie, top up for Christmas maybe? ;)

I think being remembered by a scent is a really nice thing, if that makes sense?
Comment and let me know your fave scented products and perfumes :)
