Spring Wish List

Spring has sprung! Well, sort of (...I say this mainly because I don't know if it's actually
Spring or not. Probably not).

I saw the first blossom tree a week or so ago! And now I'm seeing them everywhere.
Which is awesome because as much as I like autumn and winter, the trees are bare and
branches are only pretty to a certain extent.
Also, I'm seeing lots of daffodils growing. Though not quite grown yet, they're getting there.

So I thought I'd create a Spring wish list and share it with you! I've seen some lovely
Spring themed things in the shops lately.
For Spring, I'm liking pale colours. Light blues, light greens, light pinks. And light florals.
Flowy dresses. Lace. Bows. And all those lovely things.

The shoes are a definite favourite. I like brown-ish/nude coloured shoes for Spring.
And midi skirts, because Spring is slightly warmer so you can just about bare not having
to wear knit tights or jeans.

Also sorry for my absence, I've missed a few days of the makeup challenge.
But I took a few days to gain sanity, become less busy and catch up with a few things.

I'll be back posting photos for the makeup challenge from Monday.
(I won't be starting again, I'll be carrying on from Day 20, or wherever we're up to etc. 
but obviously it won't be photos from the days I missed, it'll be Monday onwards).

I hope you have a great weekend!
What are your Spring staples? Let me know below! :)

♥ Valentines Day // OOTD ♥

I hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day/Weekend!
This Valentines Day OOTD comes to you from my bathroom because we 
forgot to take photos before we went out (and my lighting sucks at night so it's literally 
impossible to do it anywhere else other than the bathroom).

Either way, in the run up to valentines day I bought two midi skirts from boohoo 
(hello short girl problems, when midi skirts are basically maxi skirts on you) and I was 
actually planning on wearing the other one (just plain white) but ended up wearing this one 
instead... because I ended up planning an entire different outfit in my head.
I tend to stay away from any other skirts apart from mini's because, as I said, 
I'm pretty damn short and they just don't look good on me, but I love this one!

I definitely wasn't planning on buying shoes (...for once) but I got these for £15 which is 
amazing. They're so cute! And comfy! Which is an amazing plus.
I also picked up this cute heart necklace from New Look :) kinda perfect for V-day.

I didn't take a photo of my present because I wasn't online much,
but I got a big heart shaped box full of Sanctuary Spa things for Valentines Day!
(which equals 100% happiness, I'm pretty sure)
It has the White Lily & Damask Rose body wash in! Which is my favourite smell
since I got it at christmas.

Here are the full details of my outfit:

Top - New Look
Necklace - New Look
Skirt - Boohoo
Shoes - Deichmann

I also forgot to take a photo of my nails, but they were 'Let's Be friends', 'Charmmy & Sugar' and 
'Spoken from the heart' from the Hello Kitty OPI Collection.

What did you do this Valentines day?
I hope you had fun!

#100DaysofMakeup: Day 20 + 21


Happy Monday! I actually planned on posting the above make up as part of a Valentine's 
Make Up inspiration/ideas post but I unfortunately didn't have time.
So it's Day 20 instead.

Day 21 is actually my Valentines Day Make Up. I went with a colour combo I've been
using a lot recently - Kitten Parade + Hotsy Totsy by Sugarpill.
I kind of forgot to plan my Valentines Make Up, so I just went with what seemed a good 
idea at the time, which is still good.
No plans are sometimes the best plans.

Here are the details for Day 20 (above) and 21 (below)...

Happy Thursday!
Because I didn't post yesterday there's 2 days in one today. Also I meant to post a 'things I 
love thursday' today but I've been too busy to sort it all out, so I'll possibly be posting a 
Friday Favourites tomorrow to make up for it.
On the plus side I have my entire Valentines Day outfit sorted!
Now I just need to sort my make up out... look out for a V-Day make up post tomorrow/Saturday

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Lipsticks

Happy Tuesday! I'm finallyyy getting round to posting about my Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani
lipsticks. Sorry it took ages!

I actually originally bought them on the day they released, but at the time of shipping
they were sold out so I didn't get them.
But either way, I got them in the end a few days later.
I believe 2 of them are online exclusives (but I could be wrong).

I got: Phone Call, Rock Steady & Firebird

They come in pretty white and gold boxes with pink and white polka dots on the inside.
And the lipsticks themselves are a beautiful black and gold design.

I'm a big fan of lipstick that goes straight on, the colour's right there and you don't have to apply it a couple of times before it shows. That's what these are like.
They're beautifully glossy and pigmented, especially Rock Steady. It's such a bold colour and definitely a new favourite darker lipstick of mine.
But the other two are equally as lovely!

Top to Bottom: Rock Steady, Phone Call, Firebird.

Overall, I love these! Now I just need the rest of the collection...
(that sound you heard was my bank account screaming)

Have you tried any of the lipsticks in the collection?
Or any other new lipsticks recently?
Let me know!
