Recent Purchases.

posted on: 30 November, 2011

A few recent buys, including this amazing Topshop Studded Makeup Bag that I’ve had my eye on for a while now. I think it’s quite a good size for carting around what you need daily in your handbag. It will also go very well with the Mulberry bag I’m after! 
I’m on a bit of a mission at the moment, I really want to get out of the habit of washing my hair each day! I hate the feeling of unwashed hair, but I think I’m just going to have to deal with it as my hair sits so much better when I’ve not washed it. I bought some Batiste dry shampoo and a new Tangle Teezer to help me do it… hopefully over time it won’t need to be washed every day.
The Tangle Teezer has been on my wishlist for a while now, and I’m really impressed with it. My hair doesn’t really get massively knotted but sometimes in the mornings I do end up being hard on it and probably causing quite a lot of damage. This is a breeze to use, it flows through hair so easily!

The Rimmel Stay Matte powder has been a favourite of mine for the last few months. If you haven’t purchased this already, you absolutely must! I use this far more than any other powder, including my MAC MSFs. It’s great to give a lovely finish and take away any shine.

Barry M has a new lip colour out, which is 154 Pale Nude. I bought this as their lipsticks are cheap and usually worth the money. I wasn’t able to show you the colour, but it is very similar to MACs Creme Cup, probably slightly more on the matte side and not as good quality. The colour is nice, but I think I’ll stick to the MAC version, Pale Nude looks ever so slightly dry on my lips! (Here’s my post on MAC Creme Cup and Hue)

I also managed to find the new Limited Ed. Creme Brulee Vaseline, I spotted it in a Boots queue the other day. It was the first time I’d seen it so I wasted no time picking it up. It’s not very different from the Cocoa Butter version they have in terms of smell, but I do like it and since it’s winter, I’ll probably get a fair amount of use from it. 

Finally, I picked up the Soap and Glory Fab Pore 15 Minute Facial Peel a couple of weeks ago after hearing good things about it. It’s a clay-based mask with exfoliating particles, ideal for problem skin. It’s a great mask, although I’m not sure it does anything for my pores. My skin looks healthier after use, so I’m pleased with the results.

JUMPER – Primark
Today has been very eventful, I woke up early to find my future husband Ed Sheeran playing Lego House on TV. I knew the day was going to go well from there on… I was not wrong.
I spent the day with my favourites – Emma and Lily, these girls make me laugh so much! We went to the Debenhams & New Look press days and also the Yuki event this evening.
I had an amazing day, despite being slightly delusional from only 90 minutes sleep last night! 
This afternoon I found out that my little blog was on the front page of Grazia Daily, which is obviously amazing. I only got a cheeky iPhone picture, although I should still be there somewhere! You can see pictures here and here

Thank you for all the love and support, especially all the blog happy birthdays now that gh0stparties is a year old!

Blue Velvet.

DRESS – New Look 
RING – h&m
BELT – Primark 
LIPSTICK – Rimmel Shake Up Pink 

I bought this dress last week, as you can tell I love anything velvet at the moment! This is one of those dresses that you either really love (which I do!) or really hate.
I’m planning on maybe sewing a lace collar on when I’m home in a couple of weeks, to make it look like the Topshop playsuit I want.

I started my blog a year ago this week, which is pretty exciting! I’m honestly so pleased with how far it’s come, so thank you to all my readers and followers – you are amazing! Hopefully this next year will bring even more exciting things. Happy birthday <3

River Island SS12 Press Day.

posted on: 27 November, 2011


On Tuesday, Lily and I attended the River Island press day. I always say this, but I’m much more of a Autumn/Winter kinda girl, summer clothes never do much for me.
As you can see, the RI offerings for next season are bright, a kind of Miami Vice vibe. I see studs and collars are still in, which I’m pleased about. 
You wouldn’t see me in all of this, but I think a select few of the brighter things I would wear with a dark, block colour. 
Overall, some good things to be had, especially if you’re brave!
