A Girl Can Never Have Too Many Shoes..

 Hello All!

Sorry its been a few days since the last.. work has been hetic!
I'm an absolute lover of shoes, I just cant get enough! Which is probably shown with the amount that i actually have.. i  don't own many heels, mine are mostly flats.You can find so many quirky flats to go with absolutely anything now a days and I spotted these on one of my many Ebay bargain hunts, their the cat shoes seen on daisy street. I've been putting off buying them for a while, due to the amount of shoes I've managed to collect.. I lost count after 35. But these were only 11 pounds including posting and packaging which I thought was a complete steal and couldn't resists any longer!  I purchased them on the Tuesday and they were hear waiting for me after I'd finished work on the Friday, was soo excited and I absolutely love them, they are so adorable and soo comfy, I know I can get my wear out of them!

Hope your all having a lovely week

MUA BB Cream

Hello lovelies!

I've been trying out the MUA BB cream for a little while and thought I'd share what I think of it  with you guys. I've been aware of BB creams for a long time, but I haven't tried them as I have an oily skin t zone and cheeks but my skin can get quite dry in places so I've been a bit indecisive about them. I had heard a lot about this MUA BB cream and thought I would give it a whorl. I do like this product, I think it gives a nice effect on the skin, it is quite thick for a BB cream which is surprising as I would of thought it would be thinner but I have swatched many others which are much thinner and more like tinted moisturises and they just felt greasy, not nice at all. It glides well over pores with a good buff and evens out my skin tone, but I do find that I do get a little shiny quite quickly wearing it, even when i do put a mattifying powder over the top but i think that's just my skin type. I brought it in medium as its summer I'm a little more tanned than usual and it has matched my face quite well, may have to buy it in light and mix the two once it get to autumn/ winter. Over all i do like this product, im not in love with it though but for 4 pounds you cant really go wrong! However Its great for my early morning rushes to get ready for work when I just want something quick and easy to apply and for those days where you just want a little more of an even skin tone and colour with out having to put on a heavy coverage foundation. 

Have any of you tried out this BB cream to? how did you find it?

Ebay Love!

Over the past few days I've made up quite a list in my watch list on Ebay.. lethal I know!
I found this moustache top which is so cute, tempting to get it and pair it with the gorgeous black chiffon skirt , wanted one of these for ages but can never find my size, always sold out, darn it! I also found these two dress the daisy dress I think is adorable would be so pretty for summer, well if we get one.. and the blue spiked dress has been bookmarked for quite a long time. I adore it, having the agonising wait for it to come back into stock! I've seen on so many blogs people rave about this Technic nail polish, its a dupe for an OPI one and can't wait to try it out! I've also been lusting after soo many shoes lately its kinda ridiculous, especially these spiked slipper shoes! Finally I may have made a sneaky purchase and bought these cat face shoes, they are soo adorable! I've been wanting them for a while but keep putting it off, i don't need any more shoes but I just couldn't resist and thought if I can't have a real cat I can have cat shoes! soo excited to get them!

Hope your all having a wonderful day! 



Hello lovely's!

I've had a major layout change! If you'd seen my blog before you would ave known how awful it looked! I just couldn't get my head around changing the template/ layout and making it my own, when I stumbled across Kates blog and had seen she put a post about if you had a query's about layouts/ templates to contact her, in which I did. I simple just asked her how she changed her layout, in which after a few emails of explaining how baffled by the html I was, she offered to help me do mine! She so lovely, she let me choose what layout and background I wanted and she done the rest, always checking if she could change or add something and after all her hard work she complete my new layout! Im so happy with it, thank you Kate! LoveLoveLovee it! 
If you are just as baffled by the whole situation as I was I would completely recommend asking Kate or anyone who's blog you admire, they'll be happy to get you on track or giving advise on who and where to go to!

Hope you like the new look too!?

Results Day!

Hey All!
 Over the past few days people have been receiving their A level and BTEC results. I got mine and im over the moon! I have just completed a BTEC in Fashion and Textiles (more the textiles side, can't make clothes to save my life!)
And was very pleased to get awarded Triple grade of Distinction Distinction Distinction. I had a bit of a rough 2nd year with getting to a point not actually wanting to do it any more.. but I'm soo glad i stuck with it! I love textiles and being creative i think i just lost my spark, which I'm slowly but surely getting back! However I'm still unsure about what i want to do with it and where i want to go.. I see people who have got an idea of what they exactly want to do and i wish i had that, instead of pulling my hair out panicking of what i can do! haha. But taking a year out before uni will hopefully open my eyes to what i would like to do! 
Hope you all done well in your results, and do well in what your planning to do with them! (:

Hey Guys! As the weather has been quite nice over the past few days,I decided to pop down to Lowestoft beach with a few friends. I hadn't been to the beach in such a long time, think I last went in March last year lets say was a tad bit cold to be sunbathing or dipping your toes in the sea.. We haven't exactly had much of summer here its been quite rainy and miserable but I really enjoyed just having a chilled day along the coast in the sunshine, munching on fish and chips. Here are a few pictures of the lovely Lowestoft beach. Hope you've all been enjoying the nice weather?

Tuesday, 7 August 2012


Today I went shopping after work and before a meeting, and got a few little things. after dealing with a ridiculous amount of kids at work today, I needed a pick me up. I got a few essentials from Boots, like the soap and glory hand food- I love this hand cream! i hate feeling grease on my hands, and this hand cream is nice and smooth and clears my cry hands for hours and non greasy! does anyone else hate the feeling of grease on their hands? I also got a few mini travel size sanctuary products, the illuminating moisture lotion and the radiance exfoliator. I have quite dull skin at time, and I've heard a few good things about this brand so going to give it a go and see if its any good. may do a review on it. I got some new eyelash curlers- I don't always use them that's why I wouldn't really splash too much on them but I do have eye lashes that don't tend to stay put through out the day, they always drop! I then pondered over to the make up and decided to try the Rimmel stay matte foundation- I have such a oily t zone! I've tried soo many foundations but none have done the job, going to give this one a whorl and see if its any good. After my Boots raid, I Wondered over to Superdrug, and got a few things from the MUA range, I had previously uses the nail varnish from them, they were really nice, stayed on for quite a while with out chipping! I got the MUA clear mascara as I had read that its quite good for combing through and taming your eye brows, basically a dupe for the one from MAC. I also got the extreme curl mascara, in black brown, didn't realise until after I bought it, silly me! but I've tried it and it looks nice actually it has a really nice curved brush which picks up the lashes well, needs a more thorough look. I also got one of their lipsticks, in shade 7, which is a nicey pinky colour, the consistency seems really nice and smooth and it looks really nice on the lips too. Finally i picked up a few NYC nail polishes in park ave which is a nice topey colour, which I think will be nice for the autumn months ahead, and I also got fashion ave fuchsia which is a dark pink burgundy colour with a bit of a glittery effect, its looks really pretty on your nails. Bit of a long post for you but just getting started on here (:
