Crop Top – Topshop|Skirt – Brandy Melville (similar)|Tights – Primark|Shoes – H&M|Bag – Jocasi.

Being comfy is an absolute must for me and this all black ensemble is a go to for me. Just because an outfit is all black doesn’t mean it has to be boring! The different textures in this outfit stop it from being boring and add a little extra something, plus my hair adds a pop of colour.

I love this ribbed crop top from Topshop because its not overly cropped so I don’t have to show off too much of my stomach unless I want to, I love pairing it with this skirt from Brandy Melville which is in an odd sort of suede fabric but even though it looks like it would be heavy it still super swishy.

To add another layer of texture I went for this gorgeous Jocasi python clutch – I recently worked on their new collection as the make-up artist and was very kindly gifted this after the shoot. It’s a great size for holding all my stuff but still looks chic.

Sugar Crush Spritz|Review

P1220923P1220922

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray£4.00

I love the Sugar Crush body wash so when I saw they had released a body spray in the same scent I had to buy it, because who doesn’t want to smell like a key lime pie. Sugar Crush is a combination of Vanilla Musk, Sweet Lime and Ginger and I am currently spraying it every single day.

I love the new travel size bottles because it fits perfectly into my handbag for on the go spritzing. Also the packaging although cute is a hardy plastic so no spillage or breakage on the go.

Soap&Glory have brought out five travel size body sprays in their five signature scents so there is something for everyone and at only £4.00 you can hardly say no!

Are you a bracelet lover?

Pull&Bear Bracelets – £9.99

I am not normally a bracelet wearer at all, they annoy me and I always forget to put them on; but since buying this pack of 4 from Pull&Bear I have not left the house without them. I love how they all go together but you could also wear them alone, they’re not too heavy and don’t clink about. My favourite is the chunky one with the blue stone in the middle as it matches one of my rings that I always wear.

Priced at only £9.99 I may invest in more and hey who knows I might be come a full time bracelet wearer.

Are you a bracelet lover or a hater?

We’re going to the Zoology museum…

P1220899

As something of a museum geek it was not unusual for me and my museum pal A to be wandering down a backstreet of London towards the Grant Museum of Zoology.

Linked with the University College London the museum is host to around 67,000 specimens. Now A and I seem to be attracted to weird collections – check out our visit to The Natural History Darwin Collection. The prospect of animal skeletons and samples preserved in fluid caught our attention.

Just one room is home to all the specimens with cats and dogs sharing a cabinet and some Dodo bones chilling with a sabre tooth – if Night at the Museum was real then this would be the horror movie version.

After working up quite an appetite filling our brains up with knowledge we jumped on a tube and headed to Camden and my all time favourite seafood restaurant Seawise – read my full review here. I opted for an early afternoon G+T and a lobster tail.

Extra Super Lash|Review

Rimmel Extra Super Lash£4.99

We all know I love mascara and I love a budget buy even more, this little gem from Rimmel is the perfect combination of both. The Extra Super Lash helps build up a long and thick lash look, although not great for nights out this would be perfect for an everyday look.

One of the best properties of this mascara is that you can layer it up without it going crispy, gunky or clumpy – check me out with my adjectives. The tapered wand means that you can get super close to the root of the lash and into the inner corner.

Sometimes budget is better!

Pure Purple|New Hair

P1220884

Yes, I have dyed my hair again – last month it was Vidal Sassoons Dark Red Violet and this month its the Live Colour XXL in Pure Purple – a vibrant purple with a raspberry feel to it. I did bleach my hair before hand with the Colour XXL Absolute Platinum which really helped intensify the colour.

I used one box of the Absolute Platinum concentrating it mostly on the roots and then working it through the lengths of my hair so that it would add a little bit of more texture and tone to my hair. I then waited over night before using two boxes of the Pure Purple – I have long and thick hair.

I love my new hair colour, it’s a little bit brighter than I expected but once I settled into my hair I embraced the brightness and love how it adds a pop of colour to my monochrome wardrobe.

Winter Baby Colour Show|Review

Maybelline Colour Show Nail Polish in Winter Baby£2.99

Now if you hadn’t already noticed I am a little bit in love with the white nail trend but I totally get that it’s not for everyone! Whilst browsing the aisles of Superdrug I picked up this offering from Maybelline hoping it would be an opaque white. It wasn’t but was more of a translucent milky white similar to my beloved Bourjois Coton Sur Ton, it’s a great colour for people who want to try the white nail trend but aren’t completely sure about it.

I use about three coats to get a good colour and it takes about four days before any chipping occurs.At only £2.99 its hard to say no.
