Fashionista Magazine

Hello girls! As most of you are aware (either from the link in my side bar, or if you have followed me for long enough you will have read the whole process) i was asked to write an article for Fashionista magazine - a magazine given out at London Graduate Fashion Week. After being lucky enough to go down to London and to the catwalk show, I picked up a copy of the magazine, which i said i would share with you.
..so better late than never!
I wrote a few different articles, which can all be viewed on the Fashionista website (linked in my sidebar), and the one that was actually published was my top fashion reads, so you can see that here if you so wish!
Be sure to check out the rest of the mag, and the other bloggers that contributed!

Happy Birthday Boo! ♥

Today i went to Manchester laden with presents for my lovely friend Boo's birthday! We had a really gorgeous day (despite the windy dull weather) ate some lunch, had a natter, and went for a Nails Inc manicure.
I went for a beautiful Navy blue polish called Halkin Street, which i also ended up buying, and Boo chose a grey shade, i think it was called Southbank? I'm not sure but it looked good!
We also got papped by Galaxy FM here
& were given some free gin and tonic and got stamped on our hands saying "perfect for the evening" :)
Anyway, basically this post is just another little way for me to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOO! & you should too :)

Lipstick Loves #2 MAC Jazzed

First of all, a massive thank you for everyones lovely responses to the first lipstick feature posted on Saturday! The next lipstick i want to share with you is from MAC's latest collection, "In The Groove". Jazzed is a beautiful corally pink, which reminds me of a toned down vegas volt or a more vibrant shy girl, but perhaps a little pinker! I think it's such a nice colour for summer & have been alternating it with Snob since i bought it.

The only niggle i have about this lipstick is that it's a cremesheen, so although it has a lovely finish and is really moisturising, it's already started to break and i've not had it very long :(
Jazzed was the only thing that i bought from the this collection, and i think i might have to stock up before it's finished!

Lipstick Loves #1 MAC Snob

When it comes to beauty products, my guilty pleasure is lipstick. Whenever a new collection comes out, the lipsticks are the first thing to attract me to it, or turn me away. I love them. If i could, i'd have every single MAC lipstick going, although i'm one of the most indecisive people ever, so that probably wouldn't be very wise!

I mentioned on my twitter that i was going to start doing a lipstick feature on my blog, so for the first one i started with MAC 'Snob' - it's featured in the last 3 or so posts i've done on here, and seems to be getting a lot of love from you all!
Snob is described my MAC as a "ladylike mauve" and comes in a satin finish, which might just be my new favourite.
I love the smell and texture of cremesheens, but i'm fed up of them melting and getting ruined! With the satin finish it's a little more glossy & moisturising than a matte, but without the problems of a cremesheen.

It's quite a bluey/purpley pink, which i love. I've worn and loved it during the day time and also for nights out, which i like. I have some lippies that seem too dressy for daytime/too boring for evening, but this is a perfect mix. It's slowly becoming my all time favourite pink shade i think..
Have you ever, or do you think you will try Snob?

Vodka & Orange

Hi girls, unfortunately i'm a little bit too hungover to write a proper post today. But this is what i wore last night. It was a brilliant night, too many vodka & oranges, my best friend, some strangers that became our friends and who spoke with a lot of wisdom!
Hope everyone is well xxx

Face Of The Day.

Hellooooo, as usual, i'm constantly busy busy busy and have no time to blog as much as i wish i could! This weekend, however, i finally had a bit of time to chill out and spent it with my mum! It was lovely as we don't often get to spend quality time together because of our busy lives! Last night we went out for tapas and then for some drinks - a little too much wine was consumed, mainly by me, but we had such a laugh! This morning we went into town for a bit of a browse and a nice coffee. I did my make up super quick this morning and felt a little bit delicate after last night, but i was pleased with how it turned out so i thought i'd do a quick 'fotd' post! I didn't get a picture of my outfit but i wore a beige tunic/top, black leggings, my leather over knee flat boots, a grey blazer and my Alexander Mcqueen scarf with a quilted leather/chain strap (i wish it was actually chanel..) bag.

I've had such a lovely time despite the sun hiding all weekend, it was so nice to have a couple of days off work! Also my sister gets back from Marbella tonight so i'm looking forward to seeing her and hearing about what she got up to, and hopefully getting a present...hehe.
I've made her some little cupcakes to welcome her home!
Hope everyone else has enjoyed the weekend :)
Lots of love xxx

Tie-Dye Maxi Dress & Snob Lipstick.

I don't think i can call this an outfit post, as you can barely see my outfit, but you can imagine it from what you can see i think! It is a gorgeous tie-dye t-shirt maxi that i bought from New Look a couple of weeks ago. It's my favourite maxi dress that i have! The day that these photos were taken i wore it with my cropped denim jacket and that metal cuff bracelet :)
I also recently bought 'Snob' lipstick by MAC. I won't bore you with swatches as i'm sure you've all seen it before! That's what i'm wearing in these photographs though - in fact i've worn it every day since i bought it until my "Jazzed" lipstick arrived a couple of days ago and became my new favourite! I apologise for the crummy photobooth quality of the pictures - also my hair is in need of more highlights as it's starting to look a little dull!
Hope everyone is ok and having a lovely week so far, please have a look at my blog sale in the post below & get buying!

A flower, a snake & some turquoise stones

Hi girls, just thought i'd show you some snaps of the rings i bought today, i love them - and even more so as they were £2 each from Primark! I'm not really a Primark kind of girly usually but my sister needed some bikinis for her holiday to Marbella so i went with her and found these! I also got some really plain black jeweled sandals & some light couloured jeggings for summer. So all in all it was a successful little trip! I also got a fringed, tiered dress and a stripey top from H&M, which i'm a little bit in love with!
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, i've enjoyed FINALLY having a day off, doing some shopping and seeing my friend for coffee. Having some drinks tomorrow night and hopefully booking a last minute holiday, fingers crossed!
