Lace and sequins in the snow

Hey y'all...

I am in DESPERATE need of a new outfit post, I've done a few recently but haven't put the photos on my blog because in hindsight I wasn't very happy with the overall look of the outfit!

This was one of the outfits that is OKAY but not AMAZEBALLS as I would want to see on my blog!! 


I am IN LOVE with this lace and sequinned top :). It was one of my rare sale finds in Topshop, it was only £2 (I had a technically it was £18- ha ha) The long lace sleeves are so detailed and I don't have many long sleeved items, the fact that its a crop top means its also perfect for a night out. (HUH, not that I have many of those happening recently, I am literally snowed under with work! My living room looks like a library! :( ) 

The skirt was a bargain at £8 from good old Primark but I don't think its the most flattering cut on me so I will probs be selling it!

Last night I went to the gym for a personal training class and no doubt I am struggling to walk normally today! Oh well, I guess the burn is good! wahhhhh! 

More BETTER outfit posts to come, I promise!

Snowy Lashes

So here it is the long awaited post on my Undercover Glamour false eyelashes! As readers of my blog will know I got send some eyelashes by the lovely Catherine and Julia to test out. 

I received some Katy Perry 'Oh My' extra thick lashes, some Cheryl Cole eyelure lashes and some Undercover Glamour own brand eyelashes! Yay! I wore the Cheryl Cole ones before and forgot to take a photo of them all together. 

They are definitely my recommended eyelashes as they aren't overly obvious (i hate the fake fake look) and are really comfortable for a night out! 

For this review I wore the pink box Undercover Glamour lashes :


My eyes are small and so need eye make up to look like a normal human being....


It was a bit strange wearing the eyelashes in the daytime but the light at nighttime when I'd usually wear them isn't very good. 

The change in my eyes is quite dramatic. Eyelashes are the perfect accessory for going from casual to glamourous. I can't go on a night out without wearing them now as they make you feel really dressy and ready to party! 

Get yours now at Undercover Glamour, they have a really wide range of different types of eyelashes and they are really reasonable with the own brand lashes being as little £1.50. On top of this delivery is always quick and punctual. They also have tips on wearing your eyelashes and different ways to get the most out of your eyelashes! DING DONG.

In other news I decided to do another snowy outfit post, might as well make the most of this horrible boring snow...

- Coat - River Island - 
- Top - Primark -
- Shorts - Topshop - 
- Shoes - Topshop - 
- Body chain - Primark - 

This coat is literally the warmest coat in the world! I got it last year after seeing it in a magazine and endorsed by Millie from Made in Chelsea and fell in love with it, I wore it all last year and saw it this morning and thought 'its my snow time coat.' ha ha. 

What's your thoughts on fake eyelashes, yay or nay? Would you buy them from Undercover Glamour?

Snowy Sale Shopping

Like most other bloggers I thought I would take advantage of the snow and do a snowy outfit post. Although I do love snow I think its safe to say I'm over it now! Its not great for when you need to be getting things done! YA HEARD MEH! 

In spite of the threat of being snowed in my housemate Jess and I decided to brave the cold and do a bit of sale shopping in Birmingham. We went out on saturday night and obviously could not be seen in something we had already worn! DREAD THE THOUGHT! ha ha. 

- Dress - Evil Twin - 
- Leather Top - H&M - 
- Leather Jacket - Primark - 
- Fur stole - Vintage - 
- Creepers - Topshop - 
- Neon Bag - Henry Holland - 
- Rings - Topshop and Miss Selfridge 
- Earrings - Topshop - 

There is something about the snow that makes your skin look so nice! 

The EVIL TWIN dress belongs to one of my housemates, its just something a bit different then other things out there at the minute and is so comfortable. A really easy piece to take from day to night! 

So here is what I wore to a friends birthday house party...

All these items were bought in Birmingham, I don't think I'm really very good at shopping because Jess got loads and I only got these three things...wahhhh.

- Maroon Vintage look bra let - Urban Outfitters - 
- Body Chain - Primark - (WINNING)
- Rings - H&M - 

I've been after some chunky plain rings like this FOREVAH so I saw them and grabbed them. The bralet is a lusted after item as duh its lingerie! Felt a bit summery going out in this and with the snow it probably wasn't the best idea ever, in addition to this we ended up being VERY overdressed for the house party...oh well at least we looked hot and dangerous. Ha ha 

I've been naughty and have not blogged about my Undercover Glamour Eyelashes that I received way before christmas! That'll be my next post so watch this space!
