I feel like I’d been neglecting my Michael Korrs watch; something I’ve worn obsessively since I clicked purchase on ASOS. Honestly, it’s been more fallen out of love than neglect. I feel like everywhere I turn I see that familiar gold/rose sheen and it sort-of puts me off wearing mine. Sorry if your still in your head over heels stage! 🙂
The dilemma stands, I like wearing a watch and seen as though I can’t wear one for work, wearing one, when I can becomes priority. It’s like the nurses-nail polish thing; day off = nail polish time!
Now I’m lusting over these simple large faced watches. I’ve seen them being bashed around on Instagram and street style blogs alike. And, I must say, I have fell dearly in love and it’s just a matter of choosing my favourite.
Currently, I’m watching a couple of the Larsson and Jennings watches on EBay but I also love the Daniel Wellington Sheffield Man watch too.
I think one of these watches will definitely be frequenting my wrist very soon!
Skimming Instagram and my fave bloggers I came across the new ‘in’ thing. And yes, thank the Lord, it has brought comfort back to our crippled tootsies. The Vans laceless beauties have had a fashion re-work, because lets be honest we are no Avril-skater-boy. As much as I’d like a pair of the Celine Skate slip ons sneaks, they are way out of my price range. But the Great British high street has come to my rescue and provided some top notch dupes.
Grab them before they go, you heard it here first, well, kinda!
Check out my fave fashion lady who wears the slip on sneaks in that ever-so cool way! Envious face…
I think like the rest of us, I’m slightly obsessed with Olivia Palermo’s oh-so effortless-ly stylish look.
Her hair, makeup, clothes- LIFE! Leaves me green with envy! I think shes the most pinterest-ed lady of mine at the minute. I like the casual yet polished thrown togetherness she achieves, that, if my bank balance would allow, I would fashion myself on!
Instead what I have done is put together a couple of pieces that are within my budget, kinda!
Getting ready for a night out is one of my fave parts of the night! I like taking my time, putting my spotify on and casually having a tipple in the process! This time around I thought I’d share couple of photos with you. I even managed to watch a little Tanya Burr make up tutorial!
My whole actual outfit, except from my heels; which are Topshop, is from H&M! Until I started writing this post I hadn’t realise! Tut! But yey to H&M!
Anywhoo, I have Nails Inc Motcomb Street on my nails, a variety of nude-y eyeshadows from MAC, Urban Decay and Bobbi Brown. I have on lonesome ring on from &OtherStories!
I love an outlet scrounge and for the past couple of weekend I’ve ended up visiting York and Cheshire Oaks outlet stores.
I came back with this beautiful coat, which I grabbed at The Kooples and other bits and bobs including some MAC makeup and a couple Yankee Candles.
If you managed to get to either designer outlet; my fave stores include The Kooples, The Cosmetic Store, Yankee Candle and Penhaligons (amazing perfumery!) at York; then, Mulberry, All Saints and Joseph at Cheshire Oaks.
Anywhoo, this is the outfit I wore to Cheshire Oaks, its outside and it’s been super chilly, hence the bobble hat!
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Jeans: Miss Selfridge
Coat: The Kooples
I’ve done a little research and these outlet stores can be found around Europe too! For us brits they are spotted up and down the country. Check this link here to see if one is near you!
I’ve spoken of my love of leather and black cherry hues on the lips and nail, but I can’t help but re-discover new shades of deep berryness and how ‘right now’ it looks with leather!
I know it all can be a little halloweeneey but trust me, do a big ‘YES’ to the vamped up trend. You’ll end up like me, swatching only these colours.
My especially fave lippie shade is MAC’s Diva; although it looks all deep and purple-y, it photos a little redder but still looks amazing. If you check my Merry Berry Lips post here you’ll see a swatch of Diva and a multitude of very similar shades (I told you, I’m hooked!)
Now saying that, I thought they’re can’t possibly be another dark purple-y lipstick I don’t know about, but NO, I was wrong and even more so a matching lip liner!! Tut! The shame of it when my beautiful friend Emily handed over MAC Media lippie and matching Vino lipliner!
To match my vampy lips, I painted Nails Inc’s Victoria; this is a perfect dark and daring shade and I LOVE IT!
So if you’re going to wear the lips and the nails, I say, grab yourself some leather, go oooon, do it!
