Antler Vanity Case & Leopard Boots

Hat - Vintage ♦ Glasses - Replay ♦ Jumper - Boohoo ♦ Leggings - New Look ♦ Boots - Matalan ♦ Case - Antler (vintage)

Here's the first outfit post of 2015, I hope you guys like it. I'm so obsessed with these boots - not only are they incredibly comfortable, at £9 in the sale they were a total steal! Despite their gaudiness, I adore them and think they make a plain look more daring and interesting. My boyfriend absolutely hated them when we saw them in Matalan, but hopefully this outfit will change  his mind.  What do you think? I'm also loving this hat, it was such a great find.

Jack's nan bought me this lovely vintage case for Christmas and I love it so much. It's a vanity case but I've been using it as a bag and have had so many compliments on it. I hope the broom here hasn't ruined the shot for you guys, I should really check the background before I take pics!

January's Most Wanted

Deer screen - Argos ♦ Mint lipstick - Lime Crime ♦ Vintage fawn jumper - Candy Candy ♦ I Origins DVD - Amazon ♦ Collar bib - River Island ♦ Flower globe pendant - Resity
So Christmas is well and truly over, but that doesn't mean I have to stop wishing for stuff! This month, I'm lusting over these lovely items. Have a look and see if anything takes your fancy too...

 I have no idea where I would put this decorative screen in my bedroom, but hey, lets just say I'm saving for my bottom drawer? Regular visitors of this blog will know that I've really got into to weird and wonderful lip colours, and my latest obsession is this gorgeous mint. This cute fawn sweater is on sale at the moment, and it's taking everything in me to not click and buy it - there's a high chance I will. I Origins is out on DVD and Bluray and, after seeing it with my best friend in the cinema, I'm desperate to get my hands on a copy. It's such a brilliant movie. And check out this collar bib - what a great idea! I really need to get myself one of these, maybe I could make one myself? And lastly, I'm in love with this beautiful globe pendant I found on Etsy by Resity. Their delicate jewellery is definitley worth a look and is pretty reasonable. 

What do you wish for this January?

LUSH Magic Wand Bubble Bar

I was very lucky this Christmas to receive two boxes stuffed full of Lush goodies. I've never tried anything from Lush before but have always longed to and I love that they are a completely cruelty free company and environmentally friendly - the plastic-like wrappers can be recycled or put in the compost!

Anyway, this pretty little thing is the Magic Wand Bubble Bar and was part of my Snow Fairy gift box. It has a sweet scent that reminds me of lollipops. After scrubbing the tub free of dog hairs, I was ready for a, ahem, relaxing bath! With this product, you simply crumble it into the water whilst you run the bath. A little goes a long way; I only needed a small amount to create fabulous bubbles and turn the water a gorgeous pink. Unfortunately, it hasn't come up as bright in these photographs, but I can assure you you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I also noticed that my skin felt very soft and moisturised. While I was in the bath I decided to shave my legs sans shaving cream and was able to achieve a smooth close shave without any irritation. I think this was down to the Magic Wand in the water - bonus!

Have you ever tried Lush's products? Oh, and Happy New Year!

Black & Lavender lips

Recently, I've become a lot more experimental with my choice of lip colour. As someone who had never quite got red lipstick to work for me, I wanted to try something even bolder. So what's bolder than red? Black of course. Here, I've softened it with an icy lavender colour. I don't know what made me try this out today other than the fact I couldn't decide which colour to go for, but I really love it.

What do you think?

Winter Weekend Break 2014

This weekend, my Mom, Dad, little brother, Alfie (the puppy) and I went to Whitemead in the Forest of Dean for a Christmas weekend break. We stayed in a lovely apartment on the resort and had the most lovely time. We've been coming to Whitemead since we were little so it's a place that's very dear to me. The pictures below are from Taurus Craft Centre which is full of stalls selling vegan and veggie food, handmade gifts, luxury deli items and much more. 

Hope you had a great weekend!

Happy 4th Anniversary!

Jacket - Peacocks ♦ Shirt (worn as dress) - Sheinside ♦ Shorts - eBay ♦ Heels - Peacocks 
Earrings - Vivienne Westwood ♦ Bracelets & ring - Pandora ♦ Gold ring - a gift

Today marks the countdown to Christmas and it's especially special as it's mine and Jack's fourth year anniversary. It's crazy how fast the time has gone, but I don't think either us could imagine our lives without the other in it. I kind of feel like Little Red Riding Hood amongst the trees here, except I'm not in red and the 'wood' is just my new wallpaper. 

This 'dress' just arrived today, I really love it, it's a like a baby-doll style skirt. I decided to wear it like this as it came up a bit bigger than expected, but tucked into trousers it will still make a lovely shirt. We planned to go out for dinner, but we realised none us were hungry and none of the Christmas events start until Wednesday, so we just went cruising and chilled for ages before heading back to get takeaway.  I think we'll do something else this week but for now, I hope you like my anniversary outfit

Happy 1st December!

Dogtooth & Fluff

Jacket - Peacocks  ♦ Tee - River Island ♦ Trousers - New Look ♦ Shoes - Monki
Faux fur hat - Claires ♦ Faux fur collar - eBay ♦ Glasses - Replay ♦ Lips - Barry M

These pictures have made me realise how much I need to clean my camera lens. I've always called this pattern dogtooth, but recently I've been hearing many vloggers and bloggers refer to it as houndstooth. It's a bit like when everyone started calling beetlecrushers creepers; I think I'm the only person I know who has ever called them beetlecrushers, besides my Mom. I happened to catch a Greek film called Dogtooth late at night once, if you like odd movies, check it out.

Anyway, anyone notice the lip colour? I decided that since the dark lip is in during AW, I wanted to take it one step further and try the much feared black lipstick. I love it! The key to getting it vampy and not gothy is minimal eye make-up (I'm just wearing mascara) and an outfit that isn't too dark which is why I added my silver boots. A feminine floral outfit would work too. If you want to try it but you're a little nervous, fill your lips in with a black lip liner and paint a nude colour over the top for a more subtle, grey tone. 

What do you think of black lipstick?
