My recent go to Fashion For Autumn...

Afternoon all,

Now them frosty mornings and dark nights are creeping in the more layers
we sling on the better in my opinion so here are a few
items of clothing I've picked up to help me through.

These boots from New Look have been a life saver! You can throw them on with 
any outfit whether its jeans or tights and a dress.
There also super comfy so your little toes can go a full day in luxury.

This was a little gem I found in a local charity shop for £2! Its woolly, soft and cream so 
will go with anything. If you want to see how i styled it up head on over to my instagram 
profile to see.

This was another treasure i found in the British Heart Foundation for £5.
Its by Wallis and it still had it's tags on he he. Safe to say i am becoming a pro
bargain hunter in my spare time and I am not ashamed to admit it!
Looks amazing dressed up or down and it's even roomy enough to fit a jumper underneath
without looking too bulky.

I have been using this ice blue slouchy satchel bag none stop as it goes with everything, fits the 
kitchen sink in and looks lovely to boot! I got this in a sale at M&Co a while
back so may not be about anymore but i think this colour is a real change from the 
black, cream and red trends for bags this winter.

And last but not least you have to through a statement necklace into the mix right?!
Love the cranberry red colour of this and it goes beautifully with everything.
I got this from Primark after seeing it in a haul of Fleur De Forces so cheers for the
heads up on that one and for £3 you can't go wrong.

Sees you soon fashion lovers

Maybelline Baby Lips review

Afternoon all,

Yes your eyes are not deceiving you, it is I.... I am back!
I have had a hell of a ride of it these past few months hence my absence 
but i am back with a vengeance with plenty to review so hold on to your
laptops ladies.

Firstly I thought I'd start off with an easy one to ease myself into things....
(which you can find at Boots, click on link above or Superdrug)

I know I gave in to the hype but as a beauty lover and now dedicated researcher 
you just have to!
I went for Hydrate (the blue one) and Pink Punk (the pink, obviously).

I wanted to try a pigmented one in comparison to your regular lip balm type
and I have to say i certainly noticed the difference.

The blue is definitely more for combating your dry lip issues where as i feel the pink has been more focused 
on the colour pay off so does lack a little in the moisturizing sense but both 
work well for what they are, just more so the blue.

As you can see the pink looks quite subtle on the swatch but trust me when i say
when applied several times to the lip boy does it stand out in 
a pink fluorescent kinda way.

I'd be intrigued to try more and for £2.99 a pop who can complain!
Also there is 3 for 2 at the minute at Boots so now is the time to buy.

Sees you later ladies
