What I wore

I am really loving the camel trend at the moment, and when out buying some new jeans, I thought 'Why not be a little different?' and so opted for these camel coloured skinnies. They are comfy and a little stretchy so I can actually move in them! They're from Topshop (who'd of thought?)

Another massive trend this season is obviously the chunky knits. I have quite a few now, but this grey one with navy elbow pads is my favourite. It was my first purchase from Zara, so I was even more excited than normal...sad, i know.

The necklace was in the sale in Topshop and adds some texture to the outfit.

These are the biker boots that I have been lusting after for a long time now, and I finally found them...in the colour I wanted...and the size I wanted. Horaahh! It was worth the wait. I'm sure you've all seen these before, because almost everyone has a pair.

This season, fashion has proved us that it can be practical!

Possible Outfit?

Topshop is an obsession, no doubt about that.
Khaki coloured, biker trousers = Trend and a half.

What do you think? Are you ready for the winter? I'm not, thats for sure, it came as a shock when we had to de-ice our car for the first time on wednesday. I hope you have all had a good week despite the weather (unless of course you're lucky and live in a lovely hot country)

A silly little TAG...

...to make up for not keeping you updated (I did let you all know, but college is as crazy as ever at the moment). But I am doing my best to post whenever I can :) Description: http://www.luuux.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/post_large_image_portrait/bookmarklet_uploaded/TAG_1.jpg

1.Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?

Seen wearing a really see through dress because I'm assuming I will be wearing underwear...

2.Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?

I'd rather lipstick on my teeth, neither are attractive though!

3.Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?

Forget to put blush on one side of my face, I have really rosy cheeks naturally so it probably wouldn't look too obvious.

4.Would you rather wear the clashing lipstick/lipliner combo or the frosty blue eyeshadow?

A tricky one, but I think I’d go for the frosty blue eyeshadow…ew!

5.Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?

Wear foundation two shades too light, I’d just bronze up my skin…am I allowed to do that?

6.Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

Run into the guy who broke my heart. If he broke my heart then there is no point in worrying about what I look like in front of him.

7.Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair?

This is also really tricky, I’d probably date any celebrity I wanted to…as long as it was guaranteed to last and not just a short fling! (And for the matter, it would be Channing Tatum...*sigh*)

8.Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagne?

Lasagne…gross, but still…better than a musky smell.

9.Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

Give up my makeup for a year, it would be difficult for the first week, but after that you’d get used to it. It would also save loads of time in the morning and give my skin a break. I honestly couldn’t give up my phone!

10.Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup at all?

No makeup at all. (Is ‘grill’ an American saying, because I don’t know what it means!)

And I tag all of my lovely readers, leave a link in the comments or something so I can have a look :) Thankyou all for having the patience with me and my lack of posts! I'm doing my best :)

NOTD: Illamasqua

It goes by the name Muse. And I love it.

Smooth and creamy? Yep.

Full coverage? Yep.
Is it pigmented, you may ask. Yep. Very.

At first, I only applied one coat, just to see if it was streaky or not. And I can honestly tell you now that it most certainly was not streaky. It was pretty much opaque on the first coat. A-mazing.

I applied two coates anyway for the lasting-power. I've only had it on one day, and, well, to be honest it has chipped a little bit on the tips. But nothing obvious. And it hasn't put me off it. I love the colour, a deep blue-green and it suits my skin tone.

Also, it's a completely new colour to add to my collection - I don't own anything like it!

I bought mine off ASOS for £5.


I couldn't beleive it. So race down there to grab yours at this bargain price!

Outfit of the Day

Package ordered Sunday afternoon.
Package arrived Monday morning.
PLUS free delivery...now that is what I call good service!

I ordered 2 nail polish's, 2 tops, and 3 necklaces. And out of that, I wore this today:I'm wearing;
a pair of grey leggins from Accessorize.
Plain grey top to slip underneath from H&M
Abstract sheer print top from ASOS
Pale pink cardigan from New Look
Angel wing necklace from ASOS
Pandora bracelet
Silver beaded bracelet.

I decided to wear a top underneath for warmth and length (coverin' ma bum). I decided that the outfit was a little too grey and dull, so added the pink cardigan for a little more colour.

I love this necklace and I think it goes really nicely with the outfit. It was only £4 too.

I wore my brogues from New Look aswell, but if I had some biker boots then I would have worn them.

I would love to know what you think! But for now, I'm going to try out my new Illamasqua nail polish, eeee, exciting stuff :D

What's in my bag?

I thought I may aswell follow the trend as I haven't written a post in too long - sorry about that!

I literally have a Mary Poppins bag, I can fit anything and everything in it.(One time i stuffed my massive fur coat in it, and I still had room for everything else!)

Before you ask, yes, I do carry a KitKat with me pretty much wherever I go, you never know when you might feel a bit peckish)

My bag is at the back which I got for my birthday (i've done a previous blog post on it).

Rose and Almond Oil Vaseline, absolute lipsaver (ha!), especially for winter.

Sunglasses, there is a small possibility that the sun will shine in England!

My makeup bag


In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, I'm currently studying it in English Lit+Lang, and it's honestly the first book that I've studyed that I have enjoyed. It's a true story aswell! I recommend.

My Primark purse, such a bargain. Plus it's very Chanel-esque :)

Mini purse which I keep my keys and memory stick in

Headphones of course!

This is actually a period pad holder, cute design and very descrete!

D&G L'Imperatrice Perfume, it's a big bottle so not great to carry around if you've got a full bag already. It doesn't stop me though!

A KitKat :)

A mirror

My iPhone. I'm going to admit that I feel lost without it.

A hairband

Two pocket sized perfumes (Eau des Jardins by Clarins and Princess by Vera Wang)

And a pen.

This is everything that I carry around with me on a day-to-day basis (minus all the recipts and random notes)

Hope you guys liked and I promise I'll be back with an outfit-of-the-day (once my ASOS package has arrived, eee)
