Recently, I've been dressing rather smartly so this fun little outfit was a nice change. As you can see, I've accessorised my new top with pet hair. With a house full of fur babies, it's pretty much impossible to keep unwanted fluff off your person. However, I hope it isn't too distracting as I really love this new crop from The Ragged Priest I spied in the ASOS sale - I think it suits me to a tee (pardon the pun). I'm quite an awkward person by nature and often find myself cringing.

I could not resist these silver mules either - I just knew they'd go with so many things and add a up-to-date chic look to any outfit - and they do! I will admit that having worn them for the first time today and walked a little dog that decided to pull me down the straight after the leaves, they do cut into your feet a tad. I'm hoping that as they are worn more they will begin to loosen up, but I thought I'd offer a warning just in case any of you thought about picking a pair up for yourself.

Hope you have a great week!

Current Beauty Favourites

Vichy Dermablend
I have been using this on and off (but mostly on) for about a year, and I always seem to go back to it. At £16, the price is right, and even though my skin has improved dramatically from when I first purchased, I love the coverage. One qualm I have with this foundation is the lack of choice when it comes to colours - the palest shade Opal can sometimes look a little orange for me if I use too much and I don't think the darkest shade would be useful for black skin. For now, this is my favourite foundation as it is almost perfect.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I bought this on a whim with my built up Boots advantage points and I am so pleased I did. My foundation has never looked so flawless and I am convinced that a sponge is the best way to apply makeup, I'm just mad I'm only now realising! However, I've only had it for about three weeks and it has a significant amount of tears in it from washing, so I'm curious to see how long it will last. 

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
My favourite mascara to date, I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a lengthening effect. Until I can afford to try out the much coveted Benefit They're Real mascara, I'll be buying this product for the foreseeable future.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Nude Delight 700
In my opinion, this is the perfect nude lipstick on a budget. The colour is subtle and long-lasting and feels moisturising on the lips. At £6.49, it's pretty cheap and at Boots, they currently are offering Rimmel products at 3 for 2.

Baby Oil
I swapped my old moisturiser for this about a year ago after my sister's recommendation. I have to say, my skin is softer than it has been for years. I have senstive skin on my chest and this is gentle enough not to irritate it. Between two and three pounds, you can't go wrong. This bottle has lasted since September.

Do you use any of these products?
