Monday Goodies!

I hate Mondays, but look at all the pretty things that can cheer us up!

First off! TK MAXX! One store and a whole lot of designer labels under one roof. I like it! 
I am reviewing Marc B bags. The pictures does not do it justice! The first one is in a dark grey shade and has woven handles! The second one is in a creamy camel coloured satchel, it is spacious and easy on the eye. Both have been discounted by half price, so grab them while you can!

I will be accessorising items with THIS dress today (River Island) and hopefully will come up with a pretty cool spring outfit.
This is a pink floral print 3/4 sleeve crochet neck kimono dress. Teamed with jeans or pretty leggings/jeggings, it could work in your favour when staying on trend this season. 

PERFECT! Complete the outfit with these gorgeous tan wedge ankle boots!!
According to the Miss Selfridge website, they are 100% manmade.
Not quite sure what I make of that :s
The heel is 8.5cm high.


This fragrance speaks the words of love with a cool breath of fresh ginger, bitter orange and davana. At the heart, queen rose, the very own emblem of Venus, and mythical jasmine with a shimmer of sunshine, blend boldly with saffron absolute, rare and delicately leathered, tinting this floral delight with a honey-coloured subtle spicy note. 
To sum it up: yummy!

Pucker up!

Hippie Daisy 308

Le French Touch Absolu Limited Edition

From the Spring 2011 colour collection! 
This collectors item is perfect for Lancome lovers all over the world. It is inspired by a disco mirror ball and combines two 
colors: warm gold and cold silver, in homage to a

multi_faceted woman!


According to my mother, this just does not look right! I disagree.
LUSH products are beautiful and smell fantastic to the extent that I actually want to eat some of them!
The fresh face masks that LUSH offer are aimed at making your skin feel plump and look glowing!
CUPCAKE:Rhassoul mud cleans and soothes, linseed, cocoa butter and cocoa powder soften the skin. Balancing peppermint, spearmint and sandalwood oils complete this effective and delicious experience.

Just pop by to your local LUSH store and I can guarantee that you will leave with a few goodies ;)

Im all partied out now :)
More soon

*Lazy Sundays*

Sunday.... my favourite day of the week


First off, shoes! 

These shoes are most likely to break the piggy bank, but don't worry you are allowed to treat yourself once in a while! Offerings of suede with platforms, they are available in the colour of the season: CORAL ( as well as Electric Blue & Black. Available from ASOS.COM.
Happy Shopping!

Time for some lip action. Nothing beats DIOR lipstick. YSL is my #2 when it comes to lipsticks.
If you have heard of, then you know they have fabulous offerings and sell genuine products at crazy crazy prices.
The Rouge Replenishing Lip Colour from Dior is perfect for giving lusciously full lips and keeps your lips moist and colourful. Here is a direct link to the lipstick. Pucker up!

Still not over my flowery dress craze. I ran across this number while I was looking for some jewellery at Monsoon/Accessorize. I know that this high street store can be a bit on the pricey side, but if you have a budget, then you can get the most out of it if you buy quality products. It is 100% cotton and it is designed for evening wear. Accessorise with a lovely bracelet and a trusty clutch bag and you have got yourself a party ensemble. :)

BAG LADY! So if you are budgeting, you can always find the right item at the right price; if you look hard enough. This simple yet sophisticated clutch is currently available at John Lewis. At the wonderful price of £15, I would say that it is a great find.

One of my favourite scents of all time! £25.50 for 100ml. WHOOP!!!
If, like myself, you are always looking for bargains, make sure you visit and buy from safe, secure and verified sites. The one that I have been using for years is It offers cosmetics, fragrances, skincare, bath&body etc for men and women! Totally worth checking out, you won't regret it. 

That's all I have time for today.
More tomorrow!

Saturday love!

Another day, new obsessions!
Just a post listing the items and products I have brought or come across today.

The only store that caught my full attention today was Republic!
There is still an online and in-store sale going on.
However, the new stock of lush pastel colours and the floral designs and to-die-for jewellery is what I am going to concentrate on.

This was the first casual dress that I particularly liked. I know maxi dresses are still sort of in and maybe on the way 'out', but the design and fabric of this dress was just great. Its also a bargain at £10!

How cute is this dress!
Peach fabric with black lace gives it a sophisticated look and it is from the brilliant brand that is Jessica's Attic. 
If you haven't heard of it, get down to Republic and take a look at the lovely range :)
Good news: it is also on at £10 (for the time being)

Yip! I am taking my florals really seriously!
These beautiful studs are priced at £6.99 and they are worth every penny. There is also a HUGE variety available at Republic; these ones are my fave!

Alrighty, enough already, lets get down to business and talk shoes.
Let me be frank; coral is in, 70's block heels are back, and guess what, they even look amazing with socks.
Its not a fashion faux-pas, its trendy baby!!!
Fashion giant Miss Selfridge sure knows what the customers want and I like!
The heel and platform is suede and the strap detailing is patent.
Priced at £45, they are worth every penny (just do not look at your bank statement when it arrives :p )
Students also get a groovy 10% off, on the basis that they produce a student/NUS card when they are about to pay.

Moving on to cosmetics. I made a pit-stop at The BodyShop (as you do on a Saturday afternoon).
They have a gorgeous spring collection consisting of pastel colours and matte makeup. There are two pallettes availlbale and the pallette I picked up was matte and it has 4 lovely colours that are easy to apply and blend oh-so simply. 
It isn't called boho beauty for no reason. y'know! Priced at £15. 
PLUS, there was a sale on the shower gels.
1 for £4, 2 for £6, 3 for £8 and 4 for £10. I could not resist so I picked up: Pink Grapefruit, Mango, Sweet Lemon and Wild Cherry! Check in-store or shop online.


I have time to do a perfume review. So let's do it!
For those of you who don't know. YES, there is a Jimmy Choo perfume. It has left most of us wondering if the smell is as wonderful as the shoes. Let me tell you, it is.
It has a beautiful woody musky smell and the design of the bottle is gorge too! It leaves of rich, yet sweety alluring notes afterwards. Perfect for daytime and night time. Seems like Tamara Mellon can do no wrong!
The starting prices for this EDP are £39 and onwards at Debenhams.

Over and out, bloggers.

Items of the day!

OK folks, so I am new to blogging. I have been updating my Facebook page daily with fashion/makeup tips and suggestions, and requests have been coming in to do my own blog. So here I am. I usually have picks or items of the day, followed by how to get discounts or vouchers on your products. Hope you enjoy, please comment and rate. If you have any questions, get in touch; i'm always happy to help!

Fabulous material, so light and the colour itself is gorgeous! 
Remember, its 10% off for students :)
Plus ASOS.COM also does free delivery, bonus!

A cross body buckle satchel. Available in 2 colours - Pink & Grey. 
It has  a twist lock fastened flap opening, a twisted chain and has a lovely leather look. 

Alrighty, just so you know... I am a self-confessed shoe addict! 
I own miles and miles of pairs of shoes. These are the latest addition to the familia, from high street store Miss Selfridge!  
A gorgeous mink colour and the material of the shoes themselves  is suede. Laces can be fiddly, but that what makes these town shoes so trendy!
Good news, they give 20% for NUS/NUS Extra cardholders.
Good times :)

Next up is my lipstick of the day from Illamasqua
Again, I am putting in a link from the ASOS.COM website. 
This highly pigmented lipstick is a handbag must-have and comes in 10 colours.
My personal favourite colour has to be Brink!
Pssssst! If you are loving the retro red colours, then this is just the thing for you. What a bargain! On top of that you can get a 10% student discount :D

Last, but not least. How gorgeous is this ring?
I'm really into pastel colours at the moment, and Accessorize caters to all colours, designs etc.
If I wear an accessory or a piece of jewellry, I try not to go over the top. It either has to be a simple necklace or a ring!

Thats all for today folks!
More tomorrow :)
