Just realised it looks like I have a mysterious tummy bulge, it's not my Christmas mince pie consumption coming back to haunt me with a vengeance, it's actually the billion tank tops I'm wearing underneath all bunching up. Honest. I'm on a fricking ROLL with these outfit posts, honestly I feel as if I should win some sort of consistent blogging award. This was just a very casual outfit I wore to work on Wednesday, nothing very exciting. This time next week I'm going to be in belle paris, living the high life and pursuing my career as an exotic dancer cum trapeze artiste (not really) so I'll make my friend take outfit photos of me with a backdrop of the Eiffel Tower instead of my younger brother's bedroom wall.

I also purchased some things with money I made selling stuff on Ebay. I saw this waving wand recommended in this Fleur De Force hair tutorial here and found it cheapest on Ebay so bought it. My hair is natural really curly and I never bother taming the curly and just straighten it, so hopefully this will help make my hair look nice-curly and not frizzy-curly!

Also I bought a Blackberry case, normally I would make deco cases like this (see here) but I worked out that it's actually more expensive for me to buy all the gems and glue to make one than to just buy a premade one. It's so sparkly (and very bulky), かわいいですね!

I won these gorgey lashes in an Eyelure twitter competition, I never win anything so was so excited! Plus have been dying to try out the double lashes. Won't be wearing them with shitty Eyelure lash glue though, no siree. This has been a rather girly post so I'm going to go wrestle a bear or something now. xx

Face: Bourjois Liquid eyeliner, Stila Eyeliner in Stingray, Blink + Go mascara, 17 BB Cream, Bobbi Brown Colour Corrector and Concealer.

 -I've been really bad recently and doing some shopping, got the gorgey studded Topshop slippers/loafers I kept seeing on the blogosphere; and today before work I picked up these brogues and a cute pink beret from New Look. To be fair a pair of shoes and a new hat for under £20...it would've been rude to say no!
- My bestie came round for a sleepover and we finally exchanged Xmas pressies, she gave me a No7 nail polish set and the polishes are amazing; I got some many compliments from customers and co-workers on my nails at work today!

Ear Cuffs and Tunnels ♥

I've become obsessed with ear tunnels and ear cuffs, I've found that ear cuffs tend to hurt my ears as I have quite big ones (ears) and the cuffs tend to be too small, but I love ear tunnels! Here are some of the good uns I've found online.

This is my collection, I have this gorgey Topshop ear cuff (haha the reviewer is me!) too but I've lost it :(

Do you like ear tunnels/cuffs? xx

Two outfit posts in one week?? Madness! Also I finally feel completely happy with the blog layout, what do you guys think? I had a fashion crisis this week, I got everything out of my wardrobe and had one of those 'I buy so much but NOTHING GOES WITH ANYTHING' moments, decided I need to be more brave; today I wore black tights and brown shoes. Also I'm going to Paris in a fortnight's time, I'm so excited! I need to start planning my capsule wardrobe now (which will no doubt break my easyjet luggage allowance), I definitely know red lipstick will be packed. That is all I know at the moment. xx

1) Wore this to go see the new Sherlock Holmes film with my boyfriend - which is SO good btw! Plenty of lols. This is one of the Topshop 'flippy' dresses, I now have the stripey version from Christmas too! The fit is really flattering and unlike most Topshop dresses they aren't bum baringly short. Saying that though, I wore a jumper over the top of the dress and the velvet caught on it and pulled the dress up...then I got honked by a van. Brill. I love this gothic-y Primark necklace, I actually picked it up because I saw it and remembered Llymlrs has one and it looked awesome on her; the power of blogging eh? The middle plastic stone has actually fallen out and I need to find it..
2) I'm obssessed with these chinese fortune sticks my Gran gave me...you shake the tube till one falls out and then find your fortune in a little booklet that corresponds with the number on the stick. You're only supposed to do them once and day and they're freakily accurate! My mum read her fortune just after receiving some jewellery and it said 'you will receive some jewellery as a gift today'...freaky!
3) Also I'm trying to get more into Lookbook so if you could 'hype' this look twould be much appreciated xx

Sales Finds

I did a little bit of sales shopping and spending Christmas vouchers and whatnot, here's what I picked up!
Photobucket
New Look jumpers and long sleeved tops
Photobucket
Gaga goodies! I got the Gaga x Terry Richardson photobook which I wanted for Christmas half price, then saw a girl wearing the Gaga t-shirt and had to ask her where she got it from, and then go and buy one myself!
Photobucket
Picked up two MAC eyeshadows with some Xmas vouchers, I'm not sure when this denim collection was released but they're made to look like the back pocket of a pair of jeans which is snazzy.

More shiz from New Look, Henry Holland bones tights which I'm so excited to wear! Also awesome teal heels which look fugly off but cute on, and I think may be my perfect going out shoes in that they're not too high that they hurt your feet, but are high enough that they're definitely 'going out' shoes. Also bought a teal turban (can you tell what my favourite colour is yet?!), it reminds me of something Kavita would wear!
Photobucket
Also bought some more Topshop ear tunnels, I actually think I'm addicted. Plus cute nautical Primark earrings and these giant feather earrings from New Look. They're massive though, I may have to trim them as they look like they've been plucked straight from an ostrich. Did you guys find anything good in the sales? xx

❄ Glossy Box December Review ❄

I already had a vague idea what was in this months box due to reading beauty blogs, so I was already fairly excited :) Firstly the Christmas red box is lovely, unfortunately I am massively clumsy and have managed to accidentally smash the lid to smithereens with my gargantuan feet so I probably won't be keeping this box for storage...

My box had inside: Rituals Shower gel in Mandarin and Mint, MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Skin Primer, Deborah Lippmann Polish and removal mitt, Cargo Lipgloss and Blink + Go Mascara.
Photobucket
(snapped these quickly while getting ready for work)
Photobucket
This mascara is very good, I've swapped it with my L'Oreal Million Lashes and it's now my daily go to mascara. I get stupid watery eyes for some reason and Blink + Go doesn't flake or smudge at all, the lengthening is good and it comes off very easily with make up remover. Negs are that it doesn't give much volume, and the formula is very liquid-y so you need to wipe excess of the tip. Other than that, brill mascara!
Photobucket
The primer really does smell like Seventh Heaven, it smells like lemon mousse...or some lemon pudding I've had before. Delish! Also noticed it reduces visible pores, helps concealer and foundation go on nicely and so forth.
Photobucket
The lipgloss wasn't particularly wow as colour isn't visible at all but it gives a nice shine, it's not too sticky and I always put a small lipgloss in my bag when I go oot so this shall be my new one.
Photobucket
Ironically enough I posted Deborah Lippmann nail polishes in my Christmas Wishlist and then this showed up a few days later! I wanted Deborah Lippmann polishes since Gaga wore an amazing grey one in a Vanity Fair Shoot and D.L released a shade inspired by her called Bad Romance (which looks a bit like the one above but with bigger glitter particles and more of a reddy-purple). This is gorge, fantastically sparkly and very chip resistant!

Forgot to take a picture of the shower foam but the smell is amazing and it feels very luxurious. Summary review - this box was epic! I'm still debating over switching to Jolie Box though as their boxes seem to be consistent in quality of products and make up rather than things like perfume samples (which I don't use). xx
