Recent Bargains

I decided to go on a little shopping spree the other week.  I buy a lot of my clothes online these days (hello ASOS) as I never have enough time to go out properly shopping at precidents and malls such as Bluewater or Lakeside.  However, I went to my local shopping mall the other week as I wanted to visit Primark and have a general look around and I was so happy to have picked up some mega bargains!

Primark

I find this store to be so hit and miss but actually the had some great trends in store this time around so I wasn't disappointed.  I picked up a metallic faux leather skirt for £8 which is going to be a major trend this season and also a pretty royal blue dress for £10 which is a skater style and has longer sleeves.  They also had lots of velvet pieces around.

Then I picked up the essentials of roll neck jumpers in black and grey for £6 each along with a lace bralette set for just £4.  I got a grey long sleeved tee for £2 because you can never have enough grey tees.

Superdrug

This store I picked up some real bargains as they were doing 3 for 2 on makeup and BOGOF on skincare.  I got a duo pack of the Real Techniques sponges as I find them just as good as the Beauty Blender, I got some individual lashes which I'm excited to try and a Sleek primer in bronze to match my fake tan.




In skincare I got the Naturally Radiant face polish as this is my favourite range, a black (yes black) moisturiser that promises to brighten the skin, a vitamin e eye cream which is cult and the Simply Pure serum.  I also got two for £4 on hair dye.  So I literally saved £20 in this shop!




River Island

I picked up these Balenciaga dupes in the sale for £30.



New Look

I got a faux leather burgendy skirt that I've wanted for ages and it kept selling out!


So that was all my bargains for this month.  What have you been picking up?

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 . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

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
