Should It Stay or Should It Go?

I ordered a Topshop jumper the other night and it came yesterday. At first I wasn't too sure about it so I thought I would get your opinions. I found out about this jumper from Samantha when it was in one of her hauls, I really do just adore her style!


I have a little concern about the fact that the hem is not sewn. Me and my dad were thinking it will end up becoming ruined in the wash over time :S


haha look how wide it is :) I laid it out on my bad and it is nearly as long! Also please excuse the strange face haha :D

So what do you think? I think it is growing on me, and its really warm to wear so will be good to carry over for winter.

MAC Venomous Villains Wishlist

When I get interested in a MAC collection I like to make these little wishlists. It is a good way for me to see clearly what I am interested in so I can have a good look into the products before they come out.

Innocence, Beware! Lipstick from Cruella De Vil

Oh So Fair Beauty Powder from Evil Queen

Vainglorious Eyeshadow from Evil Queen

I am just completely ignoring the packaging of these products, as I really dont like it at all, and focusing completely on the make-up. What have you seen so far that you like?

All pictures are from Temptalia

A New Edition ...

This is some very exciting new ... for me at least

My friend Sophie very generously let me have her old Elle magazines and a few random Vogues, Dazed's and Pop's. If you have read this blog for quite a while you will know I adore magazines and have a little addiction to collecting them. This is why I am so excited to now having these. I am planning to do another Magazine collection post soon so anyone that is interested can see the cover pictures then :)

Things I'm Loving From ... Republic #3

I don't know what has come over me ... I really really love Republic at the minute :)



Selling Some Clothes

If you are interested in grabbing a bargain then head over to www.gatherssequinsandstuds.wordpress.com which is where I will be selling some clothes that I don't wear any more.

I am aiming to add one new item everyday so at the minute there are only two things on there but keep checking in, you never know you may find something you like. I think I can probably sell some of my friends clothes on there too so there will hopefully be a variety of sizes soon :)

If you could, I would also love anyone that could re-blog this post or maybe tweet about it. I really do just need to reduce the amount in my wardrobe at the minute.

Lincoln Haul

Me and the lovely Sophie (who is making a new blog to which I will link you too soon because she is AMAZING) went shopping on Thursday to Lincoln. I was so ridiculously excited! But the shops were such a fail and I only came home with one item of clothing :(

From Superdrug:
Batiste Nude Dry Shampoo
Barry M Lip Gloss in Coral
Sleek Kajal Liner in Nocturnal
Sleek Ink Pot in Dominatrix
Rimmel Matte Finish Top Coat

From Boots:
Models Own Polish in Nude Beige
Models Own Polish in Fuzzy Peach

From The Body Shop:
Watermelon Lip Balm



I got this jacket in Topshop in the sale for £25. I am sooo happy! I wanted one from River Island which was £50 but i'm glad I didn't buy it now!

These are a little controversial in my house. My dad likes them, my mum thinks they are ok and my sister hates that. I love them. They were £15 from Primark :)

Is it jut me or are a pair of white pumps always included in my haul posts haha -£2 from Primark

So you know how I love magazines ...




And then I bought Romeo and Juliet because I never read it as school :(

July Favourites

It's that time again :) I really do love doing these post's sometimes just as a way of letting you all know what I've been using and loving:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin This has been a favourite of mine ever since I got it, but I've been using it loads this month because it goes so well with my All That Glitter eyeshadow that I am trying to use up

Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Tango I got this is the ASOS sale and I love it! Next time you are at an Illamasqua counter, swatch it because I think you will all love it

Avon Nail Polish in Vintage Blue I've always loved Avon formula's and this colour is perfect for the pastel trend

Avon Nail Polish in Luxe Lavender Another great pastel that needs 2 coats max

Asda Nail Polish in Streamer This is one of the products I'm trying to use up because I think I am going to wear it loads this Summer

Maybelline Colossal Mascara I reach for this like pretty much everyday because I think the effect it gives is really good :)

Topshop Blush in Flush I didn't use this for a while because I didn't really have a lot of experience with cream blush, but I think I have just about mastered it now and I love it! I'm hoping to pick up a few more Topshop bits when I go shopping

Benefit You Rebel Light Perfect for summer :) I think this product has shown me I can get away with very little coverage this time of year and I am looking into trying some different brands once I've finished this

Mac Paint Pot in Painterly Urban Decay Primer Potion has been such a fail recently and I just keep coming home from work with creased shadow, but my Paint Pot has been doing really well. I really do need to but some more!

Project Tumblr

I know a few of you already know that I have a Tumblr which I try to update as often as I can. I do this by saving all of the pictures I plan to post on my computer and then just uploading them when I can. As you can image this has left me with a massive folder on my computer with over 5000 pictures in it. My plan over ... well however long it takes me is to try and get as many if not all of these pictures printed.


I know it is going to take along time and quite a bit of money but i think if i just order a few every time so that i'm only spending like £3-£5 I wont really notice just how much i am spending. The pictures above are what i have already got printed and stuck to my wall. Obviously, I don't have enough wall space for all 5000 so i'm currently looking for some nice photo albums to store them in. I think they are a great source of inspiration and just something nice to have :)

Do you have a Tumblr? If so leave me a link.

Things I'm Loving From ... Topshop #3

Sometimes (actually most of the time) I wish Topshop wasn't so expensive! I know a lot of other places are more so, but seriously, there stuff doesn't need to be as pricey as it currently is. However, I have been really tempted by these pieces recently ...



Have you bought anything from Topshop recently?
