Half and Half

Rimmel London - Black cherry and block your green

I am really rubbish at painting my nails so this is me trying to be adventurous! I used to paint my nails like this when I was a teenager! So I haven't come far since then. I would really love to be able to paint my nails all fancy with this amazing nail art that some people can do but my hands are pretty shaky and my brain isn't very creative! Well I hope everyone has a great Halloween celebration! I'm partying tomorrow! Finishing the costume today.

Pinafore and florals

 Pinafore - Primark
Blouse - New Look
Boots - Dr Martens via ebay
Brooch - Brighton Market

I am a self confessed pinafore addict! I can't get enough of them. I should probably stop buying them now, well I am on a shopping ban so that will probably make me stop! I'm on day 20 and it's going pretty well. I need to put myself on a shopping ban quite often because my spending gets a little bit out of control. I bought these DM's just before summer for £30 (I think) and I do love them, they are super comfy now that I've worn them in. I have a vast selection of brooches and now that it's chunky knit season I will be reppin' them a lot more! They are always just a nice add to something plain. Enough ramblings from me! 

Is there any pieces of clothing you're obsessed with? Hope you like my outfit.

Lavish Alice Wishlist

Lavish Alice Wishlist
Clutch Bag - Blouse - Jacket 
Black Boots - Skirt - Playsuit - Metallic boots

Here is my wishlist for the Lavish Alice competition. I was browsing their website and I really liked the black blouse so I decided to create two outfits around this blouse. I really like the tartan skirt, it's really different to the hundreds of others around at the moment and the ones I currently own. And this matching playsuit and jacket I thought was amazing! It would look super cool together. And as per usual I added chunky heavy boots to a nice delicate outfit. We don't want to be looking to elegant do we! :)

Well I hope you like my wishlist! Have you entered? Closing date to submit your wishlist is the 25th October. So very very soon.

Fancy Halloween.

As Halloween is quickly approaching I thought all the photos of the multiple fancy dress parties I've been to would come in handy for a fancy dress inspiration post! Now I am not one of those girls who makes everything sexy e.g. sexy devil. I usually really don't care what I look like when I'm in fancy dress. So here are some photos from past halloweens and other fancy dress events. (Sorry pretty photo heavy).

Halloween 2010?

This is my family!

My 23rd birthday!

Halloween last year.

And this is what I want to do this year!! It's pretty freaky!

I hope you liked the many many photos, I know they're not all halloween based but hey most people who fancy dress usually dress as a princess or my biggest pet hate a dead school girl....
Do you have any plans for Halloween? Any fancy dress inspiration?

Primark, Topshop, Forever 21 and Iron Fist haul

So my shopping addiction has gone a little crazy! I just can't help myself this is why I'm back on a shopping ban. I think I will aim for 50 days that will bring me up to the end of November in time for Christmas present shopping! Here are my purchases, looking at these photos I've realised I went pinafore crazy!!

Top and pinafore - Primark
Pinafore - Primark
Tartan dress - Primark
Blouse, tartan skirt, leopard print skirt - NewLook
Pinafore - Forever 21 (blouse previously NewLook)
Mom jeans - Topshop
Boots - New Look
Iron fist via Schuh
Paramore merch!

I've tried to link where I can, some things I can't e.g. primark or aren't available online any more. I'm sure a few of these pieces will be appearing as outfit posts! I think it's the change of season which makes me going crazy for shopping well that's the excuse I'm using even though these items aren't really that winter appropriate! Hope you liked my items.

Tartan Smock

Tartan Smock - Primark
Boots - New Look
Earrings - Kukee

It's official I'm addicted to tartan!! And this tartan smock is really lovely. I recently purchased from primark for £13! So I definitely couldn't say no for that price. It's really comfy apart from the slip dress underneath is a little tight under my arms but I can cope with that! In the end I did change my boots for some flats because the last time I wore heels to University I tripped up the tube station stairs and flashed, very embarrassing I just ran away red faced! Ha.

Haus of Deck Jewellery

I was recently contacted by the lovely Haus of Deck to review some of their jewellery and of course I jumped at the chance due to my obsession with jewellery! Now to be honest I haven't ever heard of them but after having a look at their pieces on their website and their boutique on ASOS I was impressed. I was sent two pieces and I really like them! They are on the edgier side which is my preference when it comes to jewellery! And also they are a bargain! The prices are reasonable they range from anything from £2 to £20!

Here are my pieces -

Here are some other pieces I'm lusting - 

Black Skull Earrings - £5

Overall I'm pretty impressed with the products the best thing is that the bangle is on the slightly smaller size and for me that's perfect because I have tiny wrists and nothing ever fits me so with a little squeeze to make it that bit smaller it is now the perfect size for me! If not I would have worn it further up my arm! I really like the necklace because I can wear it simply with a t-shirt or with one of my multiple blouses. 

Have you ever heard of Haus of deck before? Hope you like the products!
