January Favourites

I will most probably say this about every month for the next 12 months and be super annoying, but, I 
can't believe January is almost over! 
The beginning of January always goes pretty slow for me, which I'm kinda thankful for because I'm grasping that a whole new year has just begun.
But mainly this month went super fast!

The flat is getting there now, it's almost completely done.
I finally bought curtains! - I moved into here in September but failed to buy curtains until 
now and I'm pretty sure that's another thing to put on the 'failing as an adult' list. 
But I blame being in a top floor flat for that, with no one really able to see in my windows, 
I didn't class curtains as a high priority.
I have silver/grey curtains in the living room and purple/sparkly curtains in the bedroom.
The kittens unfortunately think the curtains are for playing cat-olympics on or something, 
but they haven't come down yet so that's always good.
And we're getting new furniture/storage so the bedroom doesn't look like a riot 
has happened in it.
My wardrobe can't cope with my online shopping....
and then there's the shoe situation.

But anyway, here's a few of my favourite things this month...

I'm not really a bag person, but well, I kinda need one. Because
1. Women's clothing has tiny pockets or zero pockets.
2. I have too much shit I insist on carrying around.

Just after Christmas I bought a new one from Primark in the sale
which is awesome but I wanted one that goes with pretty much all my outfits.
(...I don't want, like, 100 bags)
So recently I bought this lovely bag from Avon for £12. It's by Lipsy and is the
most ridiculously beautiful rose gold colour! Thankfully my new purse just about fits inside it.
But eventually I'll probably have to buy a smaller one so I can actually fit other stuff inside my
bag, haha.

When I moved in I was super pleased that the bathroom had a nice, deep bath in it so I 
could take more bubble baths!
I recently bought this bubble bath from Avon, it's Vanilla and Orchid and smells soo good.
Do you ever find the smell kinda disappears when you put bubble bath in? Or is that just me?
But this one has such a lovely smell that really lasts too.

Super pretty shoes from H&M! I'm always excited when I find flat shoes that are 
actually really pretty. I can't walk in heels to save. my. life. So, often, I just wear 

A few days ago I found out there's a Hello Kitty OPI collection?!
I, of course, want to buy the whole collection but my bank account would probably
explode if I did that, so I painfully chose 3 favourite colours that I'm hoping to post a
review of soon!

Other little favourite things this month:  This rad light in my living room, ♥ This super 
cute tea/coffee/sugar storage set in my kitchen, This £1 top from primark (!!) ♥ The Red Rose 
and Peach body lotion from Avon, which smells soo good! ♥

What have you been loving this month? :)

OOTD // Polka Dots + Epic Sale Top

The struggle is real. I want to wear Spring clothes in winter but I don't want to be cold.
I don't really do winter clothes as such... I love sweaters like you wouldn't believe but that's pretty much the extent of my winter wardrobe. Sweaters. Just sweaters.
As much as I like to convince myself that knit tights can keep my legs warm, they really
don't. So I'm resorting to jeans.
It's not that I'm not a fan of jeans (I very much am), it's that they never fit me.
Find some that fit my waist and you're doing good, find some that fit my short-as-hell
legs and you've pretty much hit the jackpot!
When I do find jeans that fit me they're usually not really in my budget - and jeans
aren't really something I wanna break the bank on.
But recently I picked up some new jeans from primark, which I think were about £7 or £8,
and they fit me pretty well.
I'm liking dark blue denim quite a lot at the minute...

But let's not forget to mention that this pretty white scalloped top cost me £1 in the sale at primark (!!) I'm guessing because they're quite summery/not winter friendly they're trying to sell them quickly.
But I'm definitely down for buying tops for £1 no matter what season they suit!



Cardigan // Forever 21
Top // Primark
Jeans // Primark
Shoes // H&M

#100DaysofMakeup: Day #4

I might eventually get round to posting these on the right day... but at the minute
they're likely to be the day after the actual day (...if you get me).

I wore one of my ultimate favourite eyeshadows by Sugarpill yesterday, the amazing countess.
And also tried out the matte lip lacquer I got from make up revolution.
(P.S, I went mad in their sale and so they'll be a haul soon!)
I love the velvety texture of this! Sometimes liquid lipsticks/laquers can be kinda drying
and even worse look drying, but I really love this. And the colour is amazing!

#100DaysofMakeup - Day 4:

Face: Camera Ready BB Cream in 'Fair' // Smashbox

Eyes: Countess // Sugarpill
Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner // Rimmel London
Lash Sensational // Maybelline

Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in 'Rebel' // Makeup Revolution

Happy Thursday!

OOTD // Jan 26th

Despite being a big fan of outfit posts of other people, I rarely do them myself.
I do little detail/selfie-style instagrams of my outfits rather than full length, proper
outfit photos (you'll know this if you follow me on instagram)
If I had a good location and didn't feel like I looked super awkward in outfit photos, I
would totally post more, haha.

I planned on taking outfit photos yesterday while we were out, but this is england
and you can't win against mother nature.
So I'm afraid I'm having to post outfit photos taken inside my flat, but I hope
the outfit itself makes up for that!

I celebrated 2 years with my boyfriend by wearing one of my favourite dresses, that I
bought just after Christmas, and heading to Norwich to do some shopping!


I recently bought this scarf from Accessorize during their sale. It's usually £19 but I got it for £9.50 (!!) It's so big and chunky and it keeps me super warm! Which is good because, despite loving this coat, it only has one button and isn't the most winter/British weather friendly coat.


Coat - SheIn
Scarf - Accessorize
Cardigan - Forever 21
Dress - Sugarhill Boutique
Tights - Primark
Socks - (...I have no idea)
Boots - New Look

Happy Wednesday!

#100DaysofMakeup - Day 1 + 2 //

Recently, a few #100daysofmakeup posts have been popping up on my instagram feed.
And so in a bid to defeat my make up related laziness I thought I'd start sharing some more 
make up looks, hopefully for 100 days.
But I can't promise there won't be a bunch of cat flicks and smokey eyes though...

Today's look (day #2) is ultimately rushed, which explains why there's only one photo of it, because 
I had to get up early to meet my sister and was running late.
I'm awful at doing my make up in a rush and prefer to take a ridiculous amount of time 
doing it instead.
There's no effortless, so uber talented-at-doing-make up that I don't need a instagram filter 
going on here, haha!


Day #1:

Face: Camera Ready BB Cream in 'Fair' // Smashbox

Heaven & Earth Palette // MUA
Big Eyes Mascara // Maybelline

Lips: Flawless by Sonya Delicious Lipstick in 'Watermelon'

Day #2:

Tornado + Sin // Urban Decay
Lash Sensational Mascara // Maybelline
Expression Pencil Eyeliner // Maybelline
