They look so delicate with the sheer netting and glamorous with the crystals.

Lusting Over Laura Mercier

So while mooching round House of Fraser on my lunch break, I noticed this beauty from Laura Mercier and I can’t stop thinking about it! The Limited Edition Luxe colour portfolio has 6 lovely pigmented eyeshadows, 3 tightline eye liners, 2 blushers and 3 brushes all in one beautifully packaged faux snakeskin box!

Now if you are like me and steer towards warm and wearable eyeshadows, but still want a hint of colour and glamour than this palette is for you, when I swatched the shadows on my hand they were anything but boring and your normal safe neutrals. The blushers look beautiful rose petal being a soft coral pink perfect for the day then city pink the vibrant warmer pink for a night out! The brushes are good quality as well and unlike a lot of palettes you would be able to use.

Now your bank account may not be loving this product at £65 but one way to justify it is that really it’s a bargain as you are getting 11 good quality products of £6 each! This is one thing that will definitely be on my Christmas list will it be on yours?

Shoe's on the brain

[polldaddy poll=5616642]

Today I have had shoe brain. Wondering what shoe brain is? This is where you can’t seem to stop thinking about shoes and you catch yourself looking at peoples shoes in the street rather than watching where you are going!

As payday is just around the corner I thought I would share with you some of the shoes which have caught my eye.

What are your favourites? Vote on the right I'd be interested to know!

Dior Glowing Colour Powder Blush 839 Vintage Pink

While on my travels this lovely blush caught my eye in duty free, and with duty free you can hardly say no! This is the first blusher I have had from Dior, and I was not disappointed. The left side of this duo blusher is a matte finish, whereas the right hand side has a pearly finish to it perfect for highlighting. I like to wear it mixed together but you can wear them separately. Dior have got the colour payoff of this blusher just right, so you don’t have to worry about it being too much. This blusher is perfect for a natural look it gives you this amazing healthy glow, the shimmer has not been overdone so that you look like a disco ball and it stays on your cheeks for a long time.

I have not heard much about this blusher on other blogs which I am surprised about as it is lovely and I feel it should be recognised more as a must have blusher! So when you’re next at your Dior counter you should seriously check this blusher out, or click the link below to view it online.

No Budget Closet: Louis Vuitton Alma Rouge Fauviste

As I seem to find myself day dreaming the most on a Monday,

I thought every Monday I would share  with you guys something I would own if money was no object! A girl can dream :)

This week my no budget closet would like to contain the Louis Vuitton Alma Rouge Fauviste. I absolutely love the colour of this bag and although if I shelled out £1,030 for this bag I would wear it all year round it would look stunning for Fall. Paired with a simple black outfit, this bag would make a real statement and possibly turn heads!

If you had that sort of money, would you buy it?

Simple Sunday OOTD

I wore this today, for a relax day around Covent Garden and China Town. It is super simple and comfortable yet on trend! A massive trend for this season is animal print it is everywhere, and one way of incorporating this trend into your outfit is by adding a scarf, pair of shoes or bag.

I chose to add this scarf from Zara which I absolutely love and know I will get plenty of use out of it! I feel animal print instantly makes a simple outfit into something more fun and interesting, just make sure you don't over do it! Are you a fan of the leopard print trend?

Gucci Fiat 500

Yes you heard right there is now a Gucci car! This has to be the most fashion related car that will grace our roads and it may be wrong of me but I really love it! I know a lot of people will think the Gucci Fiat 500 is chavvy but I actually think it looks really chic. There is one on show in Covent Garden, so if you get a chance go and check it out! I have a real soft spot for the alloys but I get this feeling some tragic person would try and nick the ‘G’s’ haha!

Look you can have Gucci interior and seat belts this looks like something out of ‘Pimp my ride’ but for some reason I love it! <3

Here's the link check it out yourself, what do you think about it? Please leave your comments below..


Mini Mac Haul

Hey Dolls,

Like many of you, I’m sure, I find it so hard to go into Mac and not come out with something. So, on my lunch break I raced down to my nearest Mac counter to see the new Mac Fall Wild colour and Angel Flame collections of which I have heard a lot of great reviews. I was especially intrigued by Snow Orchid and Lightscade, and after reading so much about them I wanted them badly!

All I can say is, what a let-down! I was not won over by Lightscade as I thought I would be. The veining was not as pretty as in previous years and found that it was way too white and chalky for me. As for Snow Orchid, I’m not sure if it was the fact that its stand had a clown on it but I felt it too bright for me. When I compared it to Girl About Town I felt this was more fuchsia and all round a nicer hot pink.

One thing that did live up to my expectations was Rain of Flowers nail polish from the Posh Paradise collection. This is a lovely and rich bluey/purple colour with shimmer in it and is a perfect colour for fall. You do need to apply three coats for this nail polish but it is seriously worth it!

I felt so deflated after seeing the first two collections so I started to look around the rest of Mac and a few pieces caught my eye. The first was Milan Mode which is not a lipstick I have heard a lot about. At first it looked quite scary due to the amount of shimmer it seems to contain, however once applied it’s a gorgeous berry pink a really lovely colour for fall and my ‘go to’ lipstick at the moment.

The third thing I picked up was a blusher called Fleur Power.

I have wanted a change from my beloved Springsheen for some time. I wanted something less sheer and without shimmer. A more pinky colour for winter, and Fleur Power has been on my want list for a while (I hope I’m not the only person with one of those!).  This has a lovely satin finished pink with a hint of coral blusher and is highly pigmented. You have to have a really light hand when applying this otherwise you could look clown-like, but when you get it right it gives you a lovely flushed pink look, again perfect for these colder days!
