What I Bought in America

I'm sure this isn't going to be a particularly interesting post for people that live in the States but for us in the UK we get really excited about shopping in the US.
As you would have seen from my previous post (here) I visited Florida back in November which seems like ages ago now.  I was only there for 4 days before leaving to cruise around the Caribbean.  However, I obviously made time to shop whilst I was there.  We visited one of the outlet malls and also the Mall at Millenia.
In the outlet mall I bought two gorgeous dresses from Armani Exchange one was a black sleeveless bodycon for work and the other was a silk patterned sleeveless dress which I actually ended up wearing on one of the elegant nights on the cruise.  The dresses were on sale and I think they worked out £40 each, bargain!

In the other mall I treated myself to a MacBook Pro as I have wanted one for the longest time and in the States they are so much cheaper (mine worked out £750) so I'm really pleased I have that along with my new SLR camera and can really get my blog on haha.

I also had to pay a visit to Walgreens whilst I was there.  I just love that shop.  I bought lots of make-up including Maybelline FitMe Foundation and Covergirl 3in1 foundation.  I also bought the Maybelline age rewind concealer, a L'Oreal eye shadow in iced latte, a Milani eye shadow in bella cappuccino, an EOS lip balm and some Crest whitening strips which I am yet to try.  Basically lots of stuff you can't get in the UK.  I think in all I spent about $100.  I can really get carried away in that place haha.
What things do you like to buy in the US?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
