The Valentine's Playsuit

Playsuit - Fashion Culprit*
Bag - New Look
Boots - Daisystreet

So Valentine's Day was ages ago but I was on blog lockdown - however I have to show you this beautiful playsuit. I went to see The Lion King Musical with friends and it was such an amazing day. The show is breathtaking and it was honestly one of the best days I'd had in a long time. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend that you do!

The playsuit is quite dark and vampy but I, of course, wore it with tights and a cute coat (it rained on the day). I did feel quite self conscious as it's daringly short but for those of you with perfect legs and flat tummies - this is a perfect one for you!

Sorry about the old school photos - I left my charger at Uni >.< Let me know what you think of these mobile snaps :-)

What did you do for V-day?

Is She Back...?

I have had the three most hectic weeks of my life. I basically acted like third year of Uni is a piece of cake and then it hit me, I need to make an iPhone app and write the dissertation in three weeks PLUS complete two other projects in for the same day. SOMEHOW after a lot of coffee and bad food, I got it done. It feels surreal to know that I don't have any more University projects - I'm actually very sad! I am not looking forward to moving back home and this is just solidifying the fact that University is coming to an end...

I do have some very exciting news however...I applied for the Net-A-Porter Software Development Graduate scheme and I got it!!!! I still can't believe it! I haven't been proud of myself in years but I felt so proud of myself that day. I genuinely was so scared on the Assessment Day but everyone was so nice. If you guys want more info read my blog post on the TargetJobs website for more! :-) I can't wait to start.

Blogwise I should be posting more this holiday! I will definitely post more after Uni and hopefully next year. The future is unclear for this blog but it was always meant to be a bit of fun for me. I have gone shopping however and have lots to show you so stay tuned... :-)

January Favourites 2014

No 7 Instant Radiance Highlighter - I got this free on a 3 for 2 offer and it's been one of my go-to's this month. A quick swipe on my cheekbones and browbones give me lovely, dewy skin and it's such a beautiful shade on all skintones! Everyone must go get this!

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch - I really don't think primers work on me but I let this one go (mainly because I spent shitloads on it). It's a light pink shade and when you put it on it slightly brightens and blurs your skin. It also creates the most perfect base over those annoying bumps you may have on your face. While I adore this, I wouldn't repurchase I don't think (never say never, however!).

NARS Isolde Eyeshadow Duo - Guys. You all need this goddamn duo. Oh my god I am in love. The colours are buttery and stunning on, I wore this everyday for a while because I was just in love with the colours. It looks amazing with Cordura duo too - just the most beautiful colours! Definitely give it a try.

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick - I tried this from my friend's collection and knew I needed it. Long story short it's the perfect nude for someone of my skintone which is still quite rare so of course I snapped it up.

Sephora Mineral Powder Brush - If you struggle to use Soleil Tan De Chanel, chances are it's the brush. It needs to be synthetic and small - either this or the Real Techniques Contour brush would be perfect. I love this because it's so dense and blends well!

Rings & Tings

A little spotlight on a lovely brand that contacted me and sent me some bits. I know "sent-and-reviewed" things are still a bit taboo but I'm quite careful about who I accept items from so hopefully you guys realise that and take my reviews seriously!

I love the simplicity of all the items on Rings & Tings and the pieces they sent me reflect that perfectly. They're all very dainty and simple which I much prefer nowadays as my dress sense has seriously calmed down too. I'm tempted to get these pretty rings and since the prices are all so low, I don't see why not!

You guys gonna get anything?
