Variation on a theme: new bag time!

The time has come again where I have worn my handbag down to its bare bones and need a replacement. I've been putting this off for so long that my current bag (or shall we say former) had gone from having 3 separate straps and a zip to only 1 & half straps and no zip. 


Did I mention I really loved this bag?

So off I trotted to the shops. I'm quite simplistic about my everyday handbag. But I'm also very fussy. 

It has to be textured matte black leather... Or faux leather. 
It has to be an adjustable across the body bag. 
It has to close and feel secure. Safety first, Ladies!
And it absolutely 100% has to be BIG. I can't stand small bags. How do you carry anything in them?


Lucky for me the shops are full of exactly what I need and I went for this zippy number from New Look at £19.99. 


It's great, it's big and it holds everything I need it to! 


And so I'm good for another year.

"Brand New Mint In Box"

Of the ways to describe the most premium of items in your makeup collection "Brand New Mint In Box" should not be one of them. One of my most awful habits is buying makeup and then not using it and to my even greater shame it is usually with my most expensive purchases. There is an Alan Carr joke about the extortionate price of a Spanish Onion, the punchline is "when do you save an Onion for best?" This is kind of how I feel about expensive makeup. It's so pretty and so precious that if I get up the courage to actually purchase it, I'm then usually too scared to use it. The pride and shame of this habit is these two items from Dior.  The absolutely sublime Dior Skin Nude Tan highlighter which I purchased as a pre-release special edition from House Of Fraser TWO YEARS AGO has sat in box all tightly wrapped up only being shown the light to show off to my friends and family. Yes I do show off my prettiest of pretties to my friends and family...

No Halloween Costume Needed

It's become an accepted norm that once December 1st comes around the nations will don their snowflake print leggings and their novelty jumpers but so far the other seasons are lacking in their effort. Yes, Halloween is famous as being the single greatest costume day of the year but I need October to step and represent in the seasonal apparel game.  Thankfully retailers have heard my inner goth cry and have come up with some seriously cute Halloween inspired items. For those who love a slogan tee you have every variation of saying that could possibly be made by rhyming witch with bitch and if you don't say every one of with Emma Roberts' attitude then you need to watch season 3 of American Horror Story immediately!   Dressing with the seasons is clearly big money but it doesn't have to cost the world. Here are my choices of how to get into the Halloween spirit all under £30.  Boohoo Starting with my favourites because I can! I actually bought the f
