Eyes: Sleek matte brights palette, Accessorize With Love palette, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Lips: Topshop lipstick in the damned (sealed with Lipcote and a little faded after dinner)

Went out for dinner and drinks with friends last night and this is the look I did for it. I used sellotape as a guideline for the shadow, which I forgot how useful it is! As the purple isn't too harsh I didn't even bother blending the edges, as it wasn't going to result in a overly dramatic eye. I have got SO much use out of the Accessorize With Love palette, it's a palette with a slightly glittery sheen in black/gunmetal/holographic silver and white. Perfect going out shades! 

Today was spent having a cringey family photo shoot at a studio (the sort of ones with the white backgrounds where you are forced to do cheesy poses) and then I came home and played Heavenly Sword on the PS3 for about 4 fours so I'm all gamed out for today. I'm pretty excited for tomorrow, I have lots of family coming over tomorrow and I plan to overdose on roast potatoes. Hope everyone has a very happy christmas! xx

Necklace - c/o Sammydress
Sweatshirt - c/o Sammydress
Disco pants - Primark
Flats - Topshop

The other day Sammydress contacted me and asked me to do a review of their site. They fall under the category of online stores based in China, everything is amazingly cheap but it should be noted that you should check the measurements of each item and that it will fit you (as Asian sizing is smaller than European sizing). I chose a sweatshirt and a necklace to review.

I'm very happy with the sweatshirt, the quality feels pretty good and I can't see the design printed on fading or cracking in the wash. The sweatshirt is one size but I'd say it was probably about a size 10, but has a baggy fit around the stomach.

I love the necklace, I'd seen a similar one on someones blog and was so happy to find this on the SammyDress site! The only niggle I have with it is that when I received my package there was a gem missing from one of the daisies which you can see in the photos.

I placed my order on November 29th and it took about 2 weeks to reach me, which is standard for items based in China, the service I received was absolutely fine. It is also worth noting that as it is a wholesale website, the more/heavier items you buy, the higher your postage will be (this also depends which country you are shipping to). Overall I am happy with my experience with Sammydress!

Hopefully I should be able to post more now I'm back home for Christmas, I just don't seem to find the time at uni! xx
