I swear by...

Boots - £26.50

So considering I have been wearing this for about 1-2years it’s about time I did a review! I absolutely swear by this product! I have really bad acne and I find it really embarrassing. One thing everybody wants is perfect skin! and if I’m being honest, I feel like this gives me perfect coverage and my skin looks flawless, I do wish it would last longer, as I have oily skin I feel as though some days if I’ve had it on for about 10 hours is come off around my t-zone. It is a very heavy product on the skin, but personally it doesn’t bother me. But all in all I would recommend this product, they do, do a light version for those of you who would be interested but aren’t too sure on the thickness! But do go into your nearest boots or Selfridges and give it a try!

How practical is your clutch?

Clutch bag - Rianna Phillips

So as I have previously posted about the genius that is rianna Phillips! I wanted to share with you my new clutch. Recently my views on clutches have changed! I never really liked them, I always felt like they were a FAF, couldn’t fit much in, and just generally got in the way. But when I came across this little beauty I couldn’t say no!
How practical is a clutch bag really? Well if it’s the right size, VERY. Omg I could fit everything I needed into it, with room to spare! I am really impressed and I will most definitely use it again! I'm the pictures above you can see my outfit post I did on instagram, my mum who has just gone out and decided to borrow my bag, and everything that was in my bag when I went out!
I would most definitely rate my bag, I love it so much. And it’s just the perfect edition to my closet!
Love love love to rianna!

Rianna Phillips

Hi guys!  Hope all is well!
I just wanted to share with you what I came across today! Rianna Phillips! I was originally going to do a top 5, but I just couldn’t just choose 5, so it’s a top 7! Theses would fit perfectly into my wardrobe, and would complement any outfit. I can’t wait to get my own!
 Rianna Phillips, who graduated from Manchester Met School of Art and Design now, has her own company, selling bags and printed scarfs she designed and made herself. And I think there amazing, at such an amazing price. I still can’t decide on which one I want to buy first!
I think it’s between the silver and grey clutch or grey, purple and blue fold over clutch! but everything is so beautiful! Make sure your check out her collections; also you can follow her on twitter @riannaphillips. 
Make sure you do drop a visit to her sites! You will not be disappointed!
Let me know what your favourite are! :)

Lust List #3

Top - Topshop
Ring - Urban Outfitters
Wedges - Topshop
Backpack - Asos
Bracelet - Urban Outfitters

Hi Guys! I really can’t stop online shopping, well browsing, as money is a little low! but still I just want everything, and obviously I couldn’t show you every single thing I’m lusting after right now.. But here are my top 5! If anybody wants to buy me one or two of them, feel free!

I really feel like everything I’ve picked is just right for spring, and my wardrobe... but i have way to many clothes, bags, shoes, and accesories that i just buy beacasue at that moment in time, i feel i NEED to have it.. And most of the time I don’t even wear it... which is my biggest problem. So from now on, I have decided I will only buy something if I can justify it to myself and my wardrobe. I’m also selling loads of things on eBay, like my Pauls Boutique bags, I don’t know what possessed me into buying them, I just fell into the 'your not cool unless' crowd and ended up with 3 tacky £65 bags!

I am going to London for some museum visits in 3weeks, which I am SO excited about, I love love love London; and I am soo jealous of anyone who lives there! So the backpack would be perfect to carry everything around in...
Do you have any bad spending habits? And what are your spring wants?

rapunzel rapunzel let down your golden hair...

hair growth treatment-£7.99, boots.

After months and months off willing my own hair to grow long and be beautiful, I came across this! At first I was really excited about it, because who doesn’t need a little help growing their hair? But then reading through the label, I felt slightly cheated. It’s basically just a clever way of saying 'I will make your hair healthy enough so that on its own terms it will grow'... so really, it’s just a conditioning treatment.
I haven’t noticed any difference in the length of my hair, but the softness and shine and texture has increased dramatically! So I am pleased that now I do have healthy hair it may begin to grow... but all in all this stuff is not a magical growth portion... unfortunately!
Have you tried it? Let me know what you think!

Hey guys! this is yesterday’s post, as I completely ran out of time last night, and by the time I got round to thinking about it, it was almost 12! Way too late.
so yesterday I went out for a very late lunch/dinner with my mum, we were supposed to go out about 1/2, however she went out for a hen do, on the Saturday night, and texted me Sunday saying...'I was very twisted last night, and I’m still being sick' god bless my mother! So we ended up going out at 5.30! And I wore my new Aztec top from Asos, with black leggings and my topshop studded boots!
Todays; well today I have lots of college work to do... blah, as it’s my Huddersfield interview in a week tomorrow, and my portfolio isn’t completed yet! I have lots of 'tarting' up to do! Wish me luck ... maybe post a few pictures of my finished work later on tonight!
Anybody else got uni interviews?

striped jumper- republic

I’m currently waiting for New Girl to start on channel4 +1! I love love love new girl! Zoey Deschanel is my new girl crush, she is just so cute, and has such perfect style and hair! Anybody else feeling the love?

chanel spring/summer

Hi all! I just thought I’d share with you my top 4 from the Chanel spring/summer couture collection. The first one is most defiantly my favourite! Its so 1920's and I love it, if it wasn’t wayyyyy out of my price range I would own this. Chanel never fails to please me. Even after everything Karl Lagerfeld, slagged off Adele. Only to apologise later on...

"I'd like to say to Adele that 'I am your biggest admirer,'" he told the Metro. "Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey and the sentence has since been taken out of context from how it was originally published. I actually prefer Adele, she is my favourite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you with regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."
