WOLFGANG - outfit post.

See my last post for basically this whole outfit. I just wanted to show you all my super new backpack which has basically been glued to my back since I got it:

I changed my shorts to my high-waisted denims from Zara to stop ultimate clashing.

Here she is. Going to make bike-riding and roller skating so much easier! From ASOS.

Picked up this cute little belt from Primark for £1.
Please excuse the state of my nails, I have now applied new ones!  Colour is Austin-tatious Turquoise by OPI.

Tomorrow is the big day for Kate and William, I am in London for the occasion as I am in fact her cheif bridesmaid! Surprise!

Just playin' I'm actually off to see Odd Future (OFWGKTA) check them/some of them out HERE - they are already getting huge and the show sold out in like an hour so this is going to be super special!

On Sunday I'm off to see Best Coast which I'm equally as excited for.

Hope you all enjoy the wedding!

Still In Love With Judas - outfit post.

Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend, I've had the flu thing going round so pretty much been asleep or moaning about it on twitter

Going to keep this pretty short, been so stressed with job hunting it's giving me square eyes. Had a lovely bike ride through the countryside though, really cleared the cobwebs in my brains thats for sure! One day I will post a pic of my bike it's the most awesome thing ever!

This is what I wore today:

Mango T-shirt
Rad Shorts.
Satchel from Asda.

I love this necklace, I got it from ASOS and wear it with everything.
Tiffany Key necklace was a 21st Bday present.

Been wearing my vans constantly since 2006.

Hope you all had an awesome Easter weekend! I got a Glee egg with a cup in it that says "I'm A Gleek" - amazing, probably better than Christmas.
What eggs did you get?

OPI Texas Collection, Lil' Shooters - review and swatches.

I had seen a few swatches of the OPI Texas collection around on the Internet but saw this Lil Shooters set which is great to try out a couple before deciding if you want to spend £10.50 on a full 15ml bottle.

Each one is 3.75ml (just like the Katy Perry mini's) so they don't last long but you can get a good idea of if you like a shade enough to buy a full one.

(L-R) Austin-tatious Turquoise, I Vant To Be A-Lone Star, Do You Think I'm Tex-y, RapiDry Top Coat.
£12 ASOS.

Austin-tatious Turqoise is a gorgeous blue-green with a hint of glitter. The perfect Americana, cowgirl blue.

I Vant To Be A-Lone Star a really pale starry sky blue. So pretty.

Do You Think I'm Tex-y? A dahlia-pink colour, very hot!

RapiDry Top Coat is a super fast, long lasting, non-yellowing, high-gloss shine topcoat. Wow!

1st Coat. Please excuse my bad false nails!

3rd coat.

3rd coat with RapiDry Top Coat.

I really love these three colours, their collection is alot bigger than these but from other swatches I've seen these three definitely stand out as the best.

The Texas collection is also the first OPI collection to feature their new sorbet formula, which is supposed to be more translucent giving a light-glossy finish, "similar to the look of icy, water-based sorbet." It totally works with the Do You Think I'm Tex-y and kinda with the Austin-tatious Turquoise, but not so much with the other.
I also had white-tips so the translucent-ness didn't work too great for me.

However, I will definitely be picking up the Austin-tatious Turquoise in a full bottle and I LOVE it! It's so shiny in the sunshine, it looks like the ocean.

Have any of you tried the Texas Collection?

Hope you all have a great Easter weekend if you are celebrating :)

Cherry Cherry Boom Boom - outfit post.

Wow what amazing weather we have had this week! I really hope it lasts over the Easter weekend because I am off from work for 4 days, although I will be spending them exercising to take off all the easter eggs I will be consuming (already had 1 this week!).

Anyway I showed this outfit off when I first started up my blog (you can see the post HERE), last time I wore this out sunbathing I fell asleep in the sun for 2 hours and still even now have a reverse playsuit tanline - not sexy!

Cherry Print Playsuit - Mango.

Cardigan - Mango
I love this outfit it's perfect for BBQ's and fun in the sun.
 I love me a romper/playsuit for summer, only problem is you basically have to get naked to use the bathroom! haha.

Glitter Unicorn Necklace - Ji Ji Kiki
Obsessed with unicorns (see another old post) and glitter.

Teamed with these cute little girl school socks - I have size 3 feet so I can pick up a million of these for dirt cheap in kids sections.
Also my shoes are Primark, they have a small heel.

What are your plans over Easter? Also if your into it, what is your fave Easter egg? Mine is Mini Eggs, hands down.

MAC Quite Cute - Miss Behave Mineralize Blush - swatches and review.

I wasn't going to buy anything form the Quite Cute range but I had an email from MAC saying there was free delivery and a free gift (an AMAZING mascara which I will post about soon) so I caved and picked up this little beauty:

Miss Behave Mineralize Blush - £18.
A light peach with a mint/silver heart center.

It is 4g, which is bigger than normal MAC mineralize blushes that are usually 3.5g.

1. Peach on its own
2. Mint/silver heart on its own
3. Mixed together.

It's great for my skin tone as its really light and then add that silvery shimmer that you can see on the top of the cheek.
I think for darker skin tones it wouldn't work as great.

I just love it, it's really nice and light for this sunny weather we are having and add a highlight too which I've been looking for for ages! The only thing is that I feel the 'mineralized'-ness (not a word I know!) of the heart seems to dust everywhere which seems like a bit of a waste of product.

I also got these super cute badges free too!

Sorry about the delay of announcing winners for the giveaway: the first winner was Hannah, 2nd was Harriet and 3rd was Simone. CONGRATS! I've emailed you all.

Also I'm very close to hitting 1000 google readers which is so awesome, i know it will go right down after I announce the winners due to giveaway-made profiles BUT if I do hit 1000 I shall be doing another giveaway - so stay tuned :) Just know I love and appreciate every single comment and reader I get no matter if it's from google reader of not!

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!

Getting Home Inspired.

As I've said on here before I'm really looking to move, I'm 21 and live in a small town with not alot going on for me. I crave city life, the energy and excitement of always having something to do whether it be partying hard or sitting in with a group of friends (who wants to gossip with their parents lingering?).

I'm still unsure on a couple things such as needing a housemate and also changing jobs, but this hasn't stopped me scouring my fave interiors sites looking for some inspiration!


As you can see I'm into framed beds and twinkly lights!


I love bright kitchens with a retro feel.

The Rest:

(All images via SmalRooms where source can be found)

I've actually written this post in conjunction with the new Paul Smith Fragrance 'Optimistic' (some of you know I work in fragrance so I jumped at the op!). I am one of several UK bloggers asked to join in with the launch and write about inspiring and optimistic things.

You guys can take part too over on the Optimistic Facebook page, upload an optimistic/inspiring photo and the 50 most 'liked' wins tickets to the Paul Smith summer party (thats ALOT of chances!) and the top 3 win £500 to spend at Paul Smith - awesome!

Anyway I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend, I'm off for cocktails and Mexican food!

Blondes vs. Brunettes - outfit post.

Some of you might remember THIS post where I had a baby pink wig on, well I also mentioned that i bought a brunette wig. I've had my bleached blonde hair since I was 16 (I'm 21 now) and despite getting complimented on it alot I do get the urge to dye it dark!

So here is me and my wig as a brunette, I want your honest opinions! 

Also can you all take time to appreciate my swagged out shorts, I have been living in them!
The top and headband are both from New Look.

My real hair only reaches my shoulders, so if I did go dark I'd have to have extensions which I generally dislike unless you are mega rich and can afford somebody great to do it!

Don't forget I have a giveaway going on HERE, 3 people will win so get in there!!!

Posts coming up soon include new beauty reviews, tattoos, and more outfit posts.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend!

Dirrty Denim -outfit post.

With spring fully in bloom, the weather this week has been perfect! 

Here is an outfit I wore this week on my day off with my friends on a sunny walk that inevitably led to this creepy place for a good old fashion ghost hunt (we actually changed it to 'killer' hunt over the course of the day which made no sense). 

I also went to see Source Code, it was really good!

Metallica T-shirt £10
Hair bow - £1Primark
I wore a darker lipstick and a smokey-grey eye.

Nails - Formidable! M.A.C
Rings H&M

Not sure what's happened to my face.
These shorts were from ASOS about 3 years ago! Bought them purely on the basis they said 'As seen on Nicole Richie' haha.

Really hoping for the sun to stay out all weekend, that would be great!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE!

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
