Fashion - Pay day haul


Hey Lovelies,
Now pay day has finally arrived, after the longest month ever I decided I needed to treat myself as haven't really got anything much new since, well Christmas, and that was like a month ago, hahaha though come on, it feels like bloody ages. So anyway here is what I got ......


The first thing I did was check out Asos as they have extended the up to 70% of sale, and well it would be rude not to, I have had my eye on this Navy cord shirt for a while, checking on it regularly in my saved items, so when it was reduced to £15 I thought why not. I then found this totally cute across body bag for, wait for it, £6.50 it was a no brainer. it had to be mine....


Then on Saturday me and my hubbie hit the city, in pursuit of another pair of Joni jeans, as I love my black and grey pairs and needed a blue pair to add to my wardrobe.



For me Topshop jeans are the best, I can't recommend them enough and how gorgeous are my latest pair of Joni jeans, I can't wait to style them up. I also popped in River Island and picked up a new Purse, I have been after a new one for a while and this one just fitted the bill perfectly.


I can't wait to wear all my new bits, you gotta love a little spree haven't you? Let me know if your planning a pay day spree,

Love
Kate

Fashion - Black skinny Jeans outfit 1 work wear



Hey Lovelies, I have been thinking about versatile key pieces I think we should all own, and the first thing that came to mind was black skinny jeans, they are just so easy to style, over the next 3 weeks, I am going to share with you 3 ways/occasions for you to wear Black skinny jeans, the first being for work, next week will be weekend and the following evening. 




To make my black skinnies work appropriate I added a simple shirt, a boyfriend style coat, my satchel and for a bit of interest and colour leopard print loafers, making the whole outfit a little bit more interesting without being to out there for work.







Jeans - Topshop
Shirt - New look ( sold out )
Coat - Ebay
Shoes - Topshop ( old ) similar here
Satchel - Zatchels

My preference for jeans are Topshop Joni jeans as I love the high waisted fit and look, they are just so comfy and I'm sure you have seen me wearing them loads lol! Oh and if you like the Satchel its currently on sale at the mo, so check that out.
I hope you liked the first in this latest series of outfits and be sure to check out next weeks offering when I will be styling up the Joni's in a casual laid back weekend way.
Let me know your thoughts

Love
Kate

Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist



Face cleanser / TheBalm beauty product / Beauty product / theBalm INSTAIN 5.5g / theBalm Brow Pow 0.85g / Magnitone BareFaced! Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing Brush Pastel Pink / Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette 


Hey lovelies today I have for you a little wishlist of the beauty kind. We all know January is the longest month of the year and drags and drags for what seems like an eternity until pay day arrives. So of course I'm dreaming of things I can't afford, but come on look at all these pretty things you know you want them.
Since getting the The Balm Nude tude palette for Christmas I am in love, so naturally I want more from the range, and of course I'm lusting after the naked smokey palette, cause, look at it, its so pretty. I'm also thinking about skincare, cause I must admit it's not something I usually spend loads of money on but maybe I should try some more high end products.
Anyway I hope pay day comes for you soon, for me its next week....woohoo....
Let me know what would be on your wishlist.

Love
Kate

Fashion - stripes



Hey lovelies this weeks outfit is again staying on the casual theme with yet another sweatshirt, but this one has stripes........ whats not to love, this little beauty has been in my Asos wish list for the longest time and last week I thought sod it and ordered it, and I'm so glad I did.



It has gorgeous muted blue stripe against a white background, making the stripe a little more subtle and not to bold, I popped it on with grey jeans and boots as thought the muted shades complimented each other, but it would also look nice with black or blue jeans.


Sorry you are seeing the leather jacket again, it was a cold day plus I love that jacket.





Sweatshirt - Asos
Boots - Asos ( sold out )
Jacket - Topshop ( sold out 0
Jeans - Topshop 

Do you love stripes? let me know your thoughts. I would love to know.

Love

Here are my two most recent purchases from Fivepoundtee and Asos.........



How lush is this Striped sweatshirt from Asos combining my love for stripes and sweatshirts. I will be styling this in an upcoming post.


The Black A1 Fivepoundtee sweatshirt is just the warmest top I own, I am in love with it, and I can see me wearing it loads in the cold weather. You can see me wearing it here .

Cause I'm nice I have done a bit of online browsing for you and found a few of the sweatshirts on the market, In case you share my sweatshirt fetish.

Beauty - january Glossybox review



Hey lovelies it's that time again Glossybox and January's box has come just in time to cheer me up, January is such a long month,its cold its dark and I'm poor. so what more can a girl want then a box of beauty goodies to brighten up her life!!


January's Glossybox theme is making 2016 the year of more instead of thinking about what we shouldn't do think about what we should.....
Anyway here's what I received in this months box, firstly UNANI dermo defence face mask, now this sounds interesting I love me a face mask and especially one that promises to provide skincare, protection, nutrition and hydration while removing impurities, sounds perfect and I can't wait to get pampering myself and try this.£11.36
Next up more skincare this time in the form of a serum, the Madara cellular repair serum,this is trial size for a luxury product that retails at £38 for the full size tube, so when it says it plumps skin while boosting hydration and radiance' I'm hoping its gonna knock 10 years off me, hahaha


Makeup wise I got a Teeez cosmetics oasis gem lipstick in the shade coral onyx, I've not heard of this brand before I've tried it and although the colour is more suited to Spring time I think, the formula feels lovely on the lips and has a really creamy texture leaving a satin finish, so I will defo be getting this out when the weather brightens up. £11.93.
I also got a gorgeous Glossybox eyeshadow in the shade glossy mauve a really pretty purple/blue shade, that I am looking forward to trying out, purple shades always look nice with my green eye colouring.£7.10


Next up I got a hair product, which was a welcome change as I don't remember receiving many hair products before, Toni & Guy shine gloss serum, I have tried this and I must say I quite like it and will be using it more its frizz control serum, you just pump a bit into the palms of your hands rub together and work through the lengths of your hair and it leaves it all shiney and it smells pretty good too.£7.49

I also got a cute notebook for being a loyal customer for a year which was a nice surprise and you can't have to many notebooks can you?
I really like this months box and I think I will have a use for every item, so well worth the £10 subscription fee.
Let me know what you thought to this months box in the comments.

Fashion - weekend style


Hey lovelies for this weeks outfit I thought I would share with you a typical laid back its the 'weekend' kinda outfit. Lately I'm really getting into sweatshirts for their relaxed look, they are just so easy to throw on when you want something comfortable and practical for the weekend when you don't need to look to smart.


This one I found while browsing Fivepoundtee.com a site I found a few months back and ordered a couple of fun slogan T-shirts from, this time I couldn't resist This black A1 print sweatshirt and for just £12, yep £12 it is a total bargain and I just couldn't not order it. I went for a medium a size bigger then I normally wear as I wanted it a little oversized. I you haven't checked them out before you should I can't fault the quality, the prices are amazing, and the delivery was so quick arriving just 2 days after I placed the order.




I styled the sweatshirt with my Black Topshop Joni jeans because I basically live in them and I dug out my white converse, to keep with the relaxed casual but monochrome vibe!

I hope you liked this more casual style outfit let me know what you think in the comments, and defo check out Fivepoundtee.com.

Beauty - Lush sale mini haul



Hey lovelies today I'm having a bad day and things have kept going wrong, but on a positive note I bought a few lovely bits in the lush sale and will be having a relaxing bath using my new products.
As you probably know the lush sale starts on boxing day I however couldn't order anything as the website was crashing over and over but I did have a bit more luck the following day although I had less choice I still picked up a few bits.

Here is what I got, The little snow fairy gift set containing a small bottle of snow fairy shower gel and some fun in the same scent which I have never tried so look forward to giving that a whirl. I also picked up a couple of bath bombs Cinders and Golden Wonder both of which smell amazing and Golden Wonder is covered in gold glitter, which gets on everything but I'm excited to see what its like in the bath and whether I get out looking glittery lol.


I hope your having a better weekend then me, let me know if you picked up anything in the lush sale.

Beauty - The balm nude tude review



Hey lovelies today I thought I would share a little review of the Balm Nude tude eyeshadow palette, I have had my eye on this palette for a while and cheekily put it on my Christmas list, so when I opened this package Christmas morning I was really happy and excited to try it out. Firstly the packaging is gorgeous and really quirky made out of sturdy cardboard with a magnetic clasp that feels solid like its going to last. It also has a large mirror which is always a bonus.


And the choice of shades is just perfect with 12 to choose from from the gorgeous 'sassy' which is just the perfect highlight shade or great for the inner corner of the eye through some lovely browns and shimmery gold shades right through to 'sleek' a rich dark brown the perfect colour to fill in my brows .




left to right- Sassy, stubborn, selfish, sophisticated, sexy, serious



Left to right - Snobby, stand-offish, sultry, seductive, silly, sleek!

The quality of this palette is second to none and I haven't stopped using it since I got it, the shadows are well pigmented easy to apply. with no fall out and the range of colours are great for everyday, but could easily be 'smoked' up for an evening or going out look. 

The balm is stocked on feel unique and Asos if your on the lookout for a new palette I would defo recommend giving this one a go.

I hope you enjoyed this review, let me know any recommendations for other the Balm products in the comments.

Love
Kate
