Lipstick Additions.

posted on: 30 April, 2011

L-R: Topshop in Show Off, Beauty UK in Passion, Barry M 153, Elizabeth Arden in Melon, MAC in Chatterbox.
I seem to go through little obsessions with products, and at the moment it’s lipsticks. I must admit after seeing them next to each other they do look quite similar but they do all have different finishes and are different shades. The Barry M, Topshop and MAC shades could all be dupes for each other! So if you want to save money on Chatterbox, get the Barry M instead!
I honestly couldn’t even pick a favourite out of these, I do like the Barry M lipstick though! Which one do you like? Also, sorry about the awkward swatches, I had to do them on my other arm as I cut my arm quite badly on broken glass a week or two ago. Boo!
I’m still on a massive feel good high after the Royal Wedding which I have to say is one the most lovely and special moments I’ve ever witnessed. I was at work tragically but caught up on my break and watched it last night when I got home. I’m not a soppy person but I have to admit I was welling up! An insight into something amazing and fascinating, it really was something else. 
Kate looked absolutely incredible, I especially loved her McQueen evening dress. I wasn’t too impressed with her makeup however, she’d slightly overdone it on the blusher and I think she should have gone for a more subtle look. 
I’m off work for the next two days, it’s my boyfriends birthday on Monday so it’ll be nice to spend some time together. I’m planning on taking him for lunch tomorrow, hopefully it’ll be sunny!
A few to follow: Sarah, AydenCaroline

Glamorous at Ark Clothing Playsuit//New Look Cardigan//Primark Belt//MAC Pink Nouveau Lipstick
I bought this playsuit last year for when we went to Barcelona but didn’t actually take it in the end. It’s not the most flattering playsuit but it’s a nice pattern. I got this cardigan from the New Look sale. First weeks of summer and I buy two jumpers. Nice. 
Sorry for this being another outfit post, three in a row but to be honest I’ve not bought much recently & I’m still quite ill so after 9 hours of work I come home and go to bed. Lame.
If there’s any posts you’d like me to do at all, let me know in the comments or on formspring.

Who’s excited about the Royal Wedding then?! I love it. I love the whole idea that a normal girl can become a princess over night. Totes a fairy tale! I can’t wait to see the dress ahhhh.

New Look Jumper//H&M Top, Shorts & Turquoise Ring//Topshop Skull Ring.

MY VANS! and my cankles. I wore this outfit in Brighton when we went out for tea. The shorts I actually wore are in the wash because i wiped my lipstick hands on them. Sick. But I thought I would reenact the outfit for y’all. These shorts are from last year and they are so tiny! I actually got a 12 instead of an 8… but technically still a 10 as H&M size their clothing wrong, anyone else ever notice this? They label a 10 as 36 but 36 is an 8 in all other clothing. I always ignore the clothes sizing in shops to be honest otherwise it just gets depressing.

I got this jumper in the New Look sale! I love it so much, I actually saw it on Stephanie and thought she looked so cute. It cost me a whole 12 buck which is a good deal.

I have quite a few rings, but I hardly ever wear them. I like to wash my hands a lot (creepy) and they get in the way. I don’t know what I’ll do if I ever get engaged… wear it round my neck? Put it in my shoe? Who knows. The turquoise one is from H&M, and quite similar to the ones that a lot of people are selling through their jewellery blog shops.

This is going to be my “live in” outfit for the next few months. Bare legs, vans and a big jumper!

Old School.

H&M Top&Skirt//Local Craft Shop Ribbon//Vans//Casio Watch

I finally bought a new pair of Vans! I have wanted some in this style for a while, I even bought my boyfriend some (secretly wishing them for myself) so today is a special day!
I bought this shirt today from H&M, and added the ribbon myself. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while actually. The skirt is the navy version that’s on a few blogs recently after I posted it in this post.
For some reason I had major issues trying to get good photos today. I hate my hair at the moment, it always looks so crap in pictures! I don’t know what to do with it, and since I’m growing it out I don’t want to get it cut.

Today I had lunch and cocktails with my friend Sarah which was a bit boozy and so much fun! I also bought a heap of half price Easter eggs haha!

In other news I have started a tumblr, so follow me if you have it! I also have formspring so ask me questions there.

Back to work tomorrow after 6 days off & I have a cold! Boo.
