As we are closer to the middle of summer, all i can think about is my holiday but its still 7 weeks to go =( this has lead me to think alot about my beauty regime, the all classic eyeliner and dark lip look is getting abit too same same for me. I’ve been loving Kylie Jenners lips recently ❤ to say the girls 16 shes got her style down to a tee!! The lipstick above Mac Pink Plaid is the one shes been wearing alot lately, its the perfect dark pink tone that id love to rock for a everyday colour. I love Essie nail polishes they stay on the longest with in my job by far & this Pink nude tone compliments the Lipstick beautifully. I was recently scrolling through Insta as you do lol, i noticed a girl snap some pics of the Make-up Revolution brand, it’s not a brand I’ve seen before but i do love a good blusher palette & this one speaks for its self <3. Finally we get on to a product that i already love & have emptied the Clarins Instant Smooth Self Tan, this is my go to face tanner when i want a little extra colour & glow to my skin, i apply it after moistrizing, it also works as a descent primer too. Its definitely worth £19 & lasts for a good 6 months =)

Where are you all jetting off to this summer??

Last Friday me & my besties decided to be a little more sophisticated and go for dinner & drinks =), this doesn’t usually happen on a Friday for us… HaHaHa

Anyway we started the evening off with some cocktails at Fat Cats, I had the Long Island Iced Tea (which is a firm fav of mine), Its the first time i’d tried Fat Cats version of my beloved cocktail. It wasn’t the best or the worst I’ve had, just a little too much citrus for me. The evening carried on into Las Iguanas for food & wine, which was beautiful as always i love Cuban/Mexican food so Las Iguanas gets a regular visit from me =)

We didn’t quiet stop there but it was Friday &  a firm favorite club for a Friday seemed more appealing with the more alcohol that was consumed, unlucky for me i had work the next day but i wasn’t feeling too bad thankfully =) retail & hangovers don’t mix well at all!!!

Above are some #selfie snaps i took before heading out, you wouldn’t believe these trousers are Vera Mode & only cost me £6.99 from Tk Maxx ❤

Did you get upto anything fun over the weekend?

Yesterday i Instagramed a pic of some new shoes i recently purchased from Tk Maxx, Yes i’m a shopacholic at that place but whats a girl gunna do 🙂 These shoes though, are my OHHH MYYYY GAWD i’m a giant hahaha

Obviously they’re black, but they are sooooo BEAUTIFUL!! I’m already 5’7 but these tower me just over 6′ and boy do i feel like a strong woman in them, shoes that empower me are basically my best friend, i actually never want them to leave my feet. Even though after one night dancing away in them I’ve had to put slippers on to ease the discomfort  ouchieee 😦

Tk Maxx sell them for £24.99 but they arent avabliable on their site but I’ve found these for you

SHOESSS

This ebay seller has them at £32.99 which is still a good bargain in my opinion, try your local Tk Maxx store though they may still have some in. I’m usually a 6-61/2 but i got mine in a 7, they fit me perfectly.

Happy shopping beauties.

Follow me on Instagram for daily snaps, if your nosy like me 🙂 hahaha

 Whilst out shopping a couple of weeks back i popped into my local Tk Maxx branch, Tk Maxx is one of those marmite kind of situations. You either love trying to find a bargain on a treasure hunt or you cant handle the hassle, very love hate for a shopper. I however have grown to love it & lets be honest everyone loves to save money so it just makes logical sense to me =)

I’ve been in love with the Kardashians for years, Yes yes yes i am aware of how they got famous and how unusual their lifestyle is, but they are strong inspirational business women who are just normal people, who experience the same life dilemmas as we do, they just decided to film theirs.

When the Kardashian brand landed in the UK with Dorothy Perkins it was a very baffling choice in my opinion & obviously they agreed because their next line launched with Lipsy which makes more sense of a match to me for their target market.

Tk maxx only had a small collection of The Kardashian jewellery line  & this necklace stood out the most, its a gold chain with black & clear jewels definitely my style but not something i have in my collection, i usually go for gold or silver chains in different styles, very plain and simple. This necklace however, is so beautiful. Its really light which put me off at first because i thought ‘oh this will break after a couple wears =(‘ But its worked out in my favour to be light, no one wants to strain their neck over some necklace, well i don’t anyway =) I teamed this piece with small studs and a small gold ring, I wanted the necklace to be my main feature.

Its recommend retail price is £25.00 and in Tk maxx it was £12.99, so as you can imagine i left my treasure hunt very satisfied that day!!

Not all Tk maxx’s have a jewellery counter, but if your local store does i recommend nipping in I’ve picked up some beautiful jewellery that’s really unique and different to what you would find any where else on the high street. You can always shop their online site too if your not a fan on the hunt…Tk maxx

Let me know if you’ve found any amazing bargains in Tk maxx

Starting from the bottom & working my way up..

I’ve followed blogs for roughly 2 years now, but my love of fashion, beauty and all things dreamy has been a constant in my life since i can remember. You know when you were 15 with a myspace & a piczo account, see blogging has been around before it even made it BIG!!

I want this little interactive website, to be my time capsule of my twenties..

What should you expect??

Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle, Personal and everything thats just me =)

Hahahahaha enjoy my journey & keep in touch
