Lita style boots...

I recently posted here about a cream pair of boots I purchased from Linzi shoes in the style of the Jeffrey Campbell litas. Ever since I got them I have wanted a black pair and I finally ordered a pair from Tribecca shoes.

I did debate about whether to keep them when they arrived as I wasn't keen on the style of heel, but I think they are such a great staple piece to have because they go with basically everything in my wardorbe. They are not as comfortable as my Linzi pair so i wouldn't wear them all the time, but hopefully at some point I will be able to purchase a real pair of Jeffrey Cambells which I can imagine will be alot more comfortable to wear every day. They were only £25.00 and because it was my first order I got 15% off so they are very affordable, however if you want a better quality boots then it might be worth spending a bit more money.

Let me know what you think :)

Outfit Of The Day . 7

It's my dads birthday today so we went out for lunch which was lovely. I kept my outfit very simple but I thought I would do a quick outfit of the day.

I got my dress from Topshop in the sale, I think it is perfect for summer and would look nice in winter with a pair of tights and a cardigan. I also got my shoes from Topshop which I really like because of the chunky heel which makes them easier to walk in and their comfy, however I wouldn't wear them everyday.

My Current Beauty Favs!

Yesterday I decided to have a big clear out of all the beauty products that just sit in my draw and never get used. So I thought it would be the perfect time to do a post about my favourite beauty products that I use all the time.

The bare minerals brush cleaner is what I have always used to clean my brushes. I think that it works really well and has lasted me a long time (however I probably don't clean my brushes as often as I should.) You can purchase this from Feel Unique.

I used to use Simple moisturiser, however I saw this in boots which seemed like a cheaper version. It is basically the same and is really moisturising on my skin and it also contains Aloe Vera which soothes the skin. 

I got given this Sanctuary body butter as part of a set for christmas and I have to say it is my favourite product to use. It really moisturises the skin and I love the smell. 

Boots eye gel is my little bargain find. I read all these things abut eye creams and as I am only 19 I wasn't really interested in purchasing one. However this eye gel really helps to refresh under my eyes in the morning and at only around £1.50 whats not to love!

The KMS silk sheen is one of my favourite hair products I have already done a review about it here so I won't say to much about it except that it really does help combat frizz. 

And last of all my Britney perfume. I love the smell for summer, it reminds me of candy floss and I think the bottle is really cute. Their not to expensive either which is another bonus. 

Sorry this post was a tad longer than normal but I hope you liked it.

Chanel Nails...


 My thoughts...

My Nan gave me this Chanel nail varnish because she wasn't keen on the colour. I love painting my nails but have never tried a high end nail varnish simply because they are expensive. In my opinion there wasn't much difference between the quality of this one compared to my normal Barry M nail paints, however I didn't apply a base coat. I think that the colour is really pretty and great for Autumn/Winter. I also thought that the packaging was really nice, but I'm not sure I would purchase any more Chanel nail varnishes. For now I will stick to the high street brands :) 

Has anyone else tried the Chanel nail varnishes ?

I went to the Olympic park yesterday to watch the women's Hockey which was so much fun. So I thought I would do a quick post about it. I decided to wear red white and blue to match the Great Britain colours.

Cardigan - River Island 
Black Dress -
Dark Red Dress -
Studded Bag - H&M

Its August!

I am so excited that it's August because at the end of this month I am going on holiday for a week with my boyfriend. Its our first holiday together so we are so so excited! Even though I am going away my wishlist is more for Autumn/Winter as a lot of the stores now have their new collections on sale.
I love the studded bag from H&M I think it is one of those staple items. How amazing are the studded wedges! I'm not sure I could walk in them though. I think the dark red dress from is beautiful and is perfect for Autumn. The boots are at the top of my list to purchase, as I recently purchased a pair of them in cream which I posted about here. They are so comfy so I had to add the black pair to my wishlist. 

What's on your wishlist ?
