Nude Heals Dilemma!

I have just started enjoying wearing heals as at 5'10 I have always felt to tall to wear them but now I have learnt not to care lol. I only have 2 pairs,  one pair are purple the other is black and they are both the same style. I have been looking for some nude/taupe heals. Only problems is I really don't like the patent look. Here are a few I quite like.
  1. Pink Pattern (Pink) Suedette Peep Toe Heels | 223061379 | New LookNew Look £19.99
  2. Light Brown (Brown) Colour Block Platform Court Shoes | 241663121 | New Look New Look £24.99
  3. River Island £65
  4. Nude Suede Curved Wedge Court ShoesNext £48
  5. Nude High Heel Flare Peep Toe Court ShoesNext £28 (I know these are patent but I quite like them!)
  6. Nude twist front peep shoes Dorothy Perkins £38
 Which should I get? Let me know what you think, or if you've seen nicer ones somewhere else.

Till next time : )

My new favourite perfume!

Just wanted to introduce you all to my new favourite perfume! It is Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci. I bought it from Boots after Christmas in the sales, it was in a set including the perfume and the body lotion. It was around £20.

The sent is quite hard to describe but I'm someone who prefers quite masculine smells as very sweet scents give me a headache so that might give you an idea! I love it!

What is your favourite perfume? Have you ever tried this one?
Till next time! : )

Just a quick post about something really annoying! Sometimes when I but up picture which should be landscape (and are saved that way on my pictures) they download portrait on here or sometimes they are upside down. I download my pictures on windows photo viewer. No-one else seems to be having this problem on their blogs. Does anyone know how to rotate pictures on here or has had the same problem? Please let me know!
Till next time! : )

January Carmine box!

Carmine is the first beauty box I subscribed to and it is still my favourite. Here is what I received this month.



I received Wild rose 24hour moisturising and brightening cream, Eldora false eyelashes, Radiance face oil, Himalayan bath salts, Fat eye stick in Taupe. Overall I was happy with this box. I have already used the eyeshadow stick and it is lovely. I look forward to trying the rest and writing a few reviews on them.
Hope you enjoyed this post! 
Till next time!

Random Mini Haul!

This is the last few bits I bought last weekend.


I'm really into the socks, boots and tights look at the moment and when I saw these and the price I had to snap them up! I love the studded detail.
These were £1.00.


I have heard that brushes with two different types of bristles are brilliant for blow drying. So for £2 I thought it was worth a try.

  These simple flower studs are perfect for leave in earrings. And I got 9 pairs for £2! Bargain! 

Hope you enjoyed this small haul!
Till next time : )

Here are a few of my favourite earrings!

It's Wednesday so here is another 'favourite things' post. As I sure you have already guessed this on is about earrings!
I love collecting earings I have three holes in each ear and the top of one ear pierced so I am able to wear a few at a time. I love statement earrings, however day to day I wear simple studs that are comfortable to sleep in.
As usual I might not be able to tell you where every pair are from as they may have been bought a while ago.

Dangely earrings:
I don't wear any of these very often. They are my night out pairs.

This pair look great with a simple black dress. You can't wear many other accessorise with these though.
As you can see they are rather big!
I really don't remember where I got these from. They might have even been Primark.

These peacock feather earrings are big and quite heavy but I love them. They are deffo statement earrings! Im not sure where these are from although I think they were either Accessorize or Topshop.
Studed earrings:

These big cat earrings are covered in gems. I love them! I think these were Primark.
These bow earrings are very detailed and are quite understated. I think these were from Accessorize.
 This cat ear tunnel is a very recent purchase and I cannot wait to wear it! I love the flesh hole look but don't actually want them permanetly so these ear tunnels are perfect. This one was £3.75 from the Miss Selfridge website (I think it was £5 in store).

I love these studs they are all separate (they do not come in pairs) I love mixing them together. The flowers especially are beautiful. These were from Accessorize.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Please tell me about you favourite things, and where you pick up you favourite earrings.

Till next time : )

Mini Poundland haul!

Here are a few things I picked up in Poundland on Sunday.

 A Rimmel, I love lasting finish polish in sunshine. I have wanted a yellow polish for a while but wasn't happy to spend lots of money on it as I might not use it very often.
 A Maybelline Forever strong polish in baby pink. This is meant to last for up to 7 days. I will try it out soon and let you know.

 A Maybelline eyestudio eyeshadow in Green glam. This is a baked shadow and has lots of different colours within it which give a lovely shimmery look.
Hope you enjoyed this little haul. You should deffo check out Poundland for their makeup and nail varnishes as you will be surprised at what you can find in there. I will try the two polishes soon and show you what they look like.

Here are a few updates. The fairy wand from Lush lasted for 18 baths. Also I am still using the Dr Brand face cleanser set and my skin is still pretty clear.

Till next time : )

Accessorize Haul!

I had a major shopping spree this weekend. On Saturday I went to Brighton (which is amazing for shopping if you haven't been their before). And I went to my local shopping centre on Sunday. I think I will end up having a few hauls this week all from this weekend. As I got too much to do in one go.
This Post will be about the Charms I managed to pick up in Accessorize 70% off. They all should have been £5-£4 pounds each, so I saved a lot of money.
 I got ten in total and am planning to get a cheap linked bracelet to put them all onto.

The owl. This has sparkles all over the body and two brown gems as the eyes. It should have been £5.00 but with the 70% off it was £1.50.

The laptop charm. It has sparkles on some of the keys. It was £5.00 I got it for £1.50.

The mirror charm. This is the back, the front is mirrored. It was £4.00 so I got it for £1.20.

Clock charm. This has gems all around the clock face. It was £5.00 so I got it for £1.50.

This Paris charm was a strange one as it was labelled as 70% off and it started off at £4.00 so it should have been £1.20 but it came out at 50p. I wasn't going to complain!

In this pack you get three separate charms. They were originally £5.00 so I got them for £1.50.

I think this one is my favourite! Its a teapot! So cute!
It was £4.00, I got it for £1.20.

The postbox charm! This should have been £4.00 so I paid £1.20.

The camera charm. This was originally £5.00 so I got it for £1.50.

Last but not least here is the half eaten apple charm. This should have been £4.00 so I got it for £1.20.

In total I paid £12.80 for all of these charms. If I had paid full price I would have paid £45.00. Can't believe how much I saved! Love it!
Check out Accessorize before these are all gone!
