Rimmel Rita

So I wrote this post 3 days ago when I heard the news yet for some reason blogger couldn't publish it. It's not news any more but I'm still excited! 
Enjoy!

I've had a bit a of a style crush on Rita Ora for a while now. Aside from the fact that she is stunning, I love her (& her stylist) ability to take elements of vintage, retro & modern styles and mash them all up to create that London vibe everyone is going for. She's is definitely a style icon for me not that you'd know it. I don't have nearly enough confidence to try and actually replicate her looks! I'm just not "gangsta" enough I'm afraid...
...moving on. 

What I am happy to replicate, however, is her makeup! And with the help of Rimmel London we'll soon be able to do this. I am all biz for this news! (All biz being a Northern Irish colloquialism for "on board" or "excited" for you non local readers out there!) Rumour has it they are focussing on lips &am…

Finding the prefect dress and then finding the perfectly affordable version

We've all done it. Found THE perfect dress and then looked at the price. we then spend hours, even days, going over our inner monologue: "Is it worth it?", "Can I justify that amount of money?" and "Would I wear I wear it again? Oh I'm sure something will come up". The answer is always Yes, No and probably not. Thus making the torture pointless for me as I will always end up taking the sensible option and putting my debit card back in its hole. 
This was the story of my brief affair with the Eliza J - Lace Detail 3/4 sleeve ruched detail dress. From its discovery on the House Of Fraser website late last night to chatting about my love for it early this morning with the lovely Debbae from the HOF twitter account to trying it on in store this afternoon with the sales lady oohing and cooing. It was a whirlwind romance but at just over £100 it couldn't last. 
And so I took to the bargain hunters paradise: EBAY. Below I've pictured 6 options I…

A little home time glam with help from MUA

It's been a while I had the occasion to break out the red lippy for a night out but I picked this MUA shade 1 recently and just can't help but wear it around the house at any opportunity (I honestly never thought I'd look at another red after I found Lime Crime Velveteen which is my precious).We all know MUA products are complete bargains and this is no different. An easy, comfy, classic Red that will be perfect for the upcoming Christmas season.
Speaking of the dreaded seasonal C word. I've been watching Christmas cookery programmes all day on Food Network UK & can't wait for all of the stuffing! Yum.

House Of Fraser A/W press launch!

This week I attended theHouse of Fraser A/W launch as a little pre-Fashion Week treat. It seems like only weeks since we last had Fashion Week on the horizon and, with it, the launch of the Spring/Summer season. Well summer is well and truly over and we move on to my favourite fashion seasons. Autumn/Winter. 
Now I'm never one to dress weather appropriate. I don't like massively bulky jumpers in the winter and I never go without some form of sleeve in summer no matter how warm I am! It's a comfort thing. So autumn is kind of my favourite time to shop. It's not too cold that we are massivly covered in layers and we have firmly said goodbye micro shorts (or at least we should have) in the shops.
Ok so enough blathering on its time to show you some of the goodies I spotted after enjoying breakfast & gossip with my FABB girlies Nic (Strawberry Blonde Beauty) & Gemma-Louise (That Belfast Girl)
This ring from Filli Folli was simple but still Blingy enough to make an…

Not exactly off to Hogwarts…

But Its september & I'm going back school!
Sort of. 
I shall finally be taking a Nail Technician course at my local college. It's just one night a week so I wont be quitting my day job just yet, but it will keep me entertained until June. I'm really excited to learn how to do proper manicures & extensions & my friends are looking forward to me practicing on them. 
 I'm also really excited about the stationary & notebooks. Who doesn't love stationary & notebooks?! This post is pretty much all about showing them off to be honest!
Oh and did mention getting student discount again?! Oh how I've missed that. Bliss!
