MAC Wonder Woman

Hello lovelies!

I am so excited for the MAC Wonder Woman collaboration!
I know a lot of people are not really liking this collection but i am super excited about it :)

Here are my picks that I will be (hopefully!) purchasing when it arrives in the UK (March 2011):

Its worth noting that most products in this collection are super sized, compared to the regular versions, which may mean they are slightly more expensive than the regular version of the product, where applicable - to me it is worth it, although something to think about if you're on a budget:
Blue Make Up bag - this has a cute blue and white star print inside!
Also available in red

'Amazon Princess' Blush Duo - this a lovely magenta pink on one side (the larger side) and a berry shade with gold shimmer on the other!

Lipstick in 'Russian Red' - I know this is a permanent but I sort of collect the MAC collaboration lipsticks, so will be trying to get this one :)

(The other shade pictured is 'Spitfire', if you're interested)

Also, I may get this - I love the colours but the reviews have been mediocre, so will see:

Eyeshadow Quad in 'Lady Justice' - I may buy this purely for the name ha ha

What are your thoughts on this upcoming collection?

Will you be purchasing anything?

Irregular Choice and Brogue Bargain!

Hello lovelies!

Just thought I would share some bargains I recently picked up with you!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Irregular Choice shoes, so was pleased to see this pair in the sale that I had spied a while ago at full price:

 'Daisy Girls' Floral Cuff Heel

I picked these up for £34.99, instead of £79.99 - some may think they are hideous, although I love them, as they are so unusual and they have a floral element, which I love.
They also have a cute brogue style detail:

You cant quite see it here but it looks like little bears or bunnies stamped on to the toe!
Next up, I ordered these from Schuh, as I thought they would be great for Spring teamed with dresses and cardigans:

 £14.99, reduced from £24.99 - Schuh

I also wanted these but they seem to have the 'courtesan' style heel that I find uncomfortable:


Have you purchased any bargains recently?

Monthly Mega Haul :)

Hello lovelies!

I have had so much stuff over November and December, so decided to post it on here so you could check it out, as everyone loves to be nosey, right?! :)
L'Occitane Cherry Blossom perfume  - this has a beautiful, delicate, fresh smell

L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Bath and Shower gel - the bottle is so pretty (and on the perfume too!)

Awesome pencil scarf from H&M

Creed Love in White perfume - this is my most favourite perfume but is so expensive! Apparently, Mrs Obama wears it and Angelina Jolie too!

These were all gifts from some wonderful friends :)

Hello Kitty Figures - these are awesome!

Wizard of Oz lunch box tin with handle, although I will be using this as a little bag and/or to store makeup

Owl Purse - I love this!

Sleek Molten Metal

Hi guys!

What do you think of this new release from Sleek?
Molten Metal Duo

Sleek say:

"Molten Metal is a highly pigmented metallic cream eyeshadow duo.
The palette consists of 2 gloriously rich and highly pigmented metallic creams that ignite the skin with intensity. The formulation is soft and fluid-like allowing easy application."

This looks very similar to the Illamasqua Liquid Metals, although for £6.99 for this little duo, they are a lot more purse friendly.

Its available here

I will be picking up the Molten Metals - what do you guys think?

Why I do not like January!


Just a quick post today - have been suffering from terrible insomnia this week and just feel all 'urrrgghhh'!
I made the mistake of looking on the Office website and spied these babies:

In the sale, reduced to £35 from around £90 - AND they have my size, which never usually happens!

(They also come in black if you are a size 3!)
They are not my usual style but I totally adore them!

Oh, and the reason I do not like January is that I do not even have £35 to buy them - sob :(
Is there anything you are lusting after but cannot afford this month due to to rubbish January? haha

Why oh why can't I live in the US?

Hello lovelies!

I love visiting the US, especially when I find awesome products that I cannot get in the UK!

On a recent trip to the States I purchased a bottle of Dove 'Go Fresh' Body Mist in the 'Cool Essentials' scent at a local Walmart for around $5 and have become obsessed with this smell ever since - we have the Fresh range in the UK but it smells nothing like this at all - I literally have a third of a bottle left and now i'm panicking that I may never be able to get any more of this HG deodorant range.
Are there any lovely US bloggers out there who would be willing to pick some of this up for me (I will pay all costs obviously!) or maybe do some sort of swap?

Please let me know!
Here are a few pics so you know what I'm talking about - if you are in the US, give this a try as its awesome! (its also available in 3 other scents)

Payday Top 5!


OK, so I get paid on the 25th of every month, which is both a good and bad day, as I spend lots and then am poor for the rest of the month!

Here is my payday top 5 for January:

 YSL Creme de Blush in 'Temptation Fushia' (the other shade is 'Passion Red' and is also lovely!)
These will be released as part of YSL's Spring 2011 collection, amongst other bits and pieces, although I am unsure of the prices/release dates at the moment - if you need this info, please let me know and i will try to find out!

MAC False Lashes Mascara - £17.50, which is available here now!

MAC Cream Colour Base in 'Madly Magenta' (the above pic is not this shade!) from the new Stylishly Yours collection, along with other pieces - £13.50, available here

Asos 'Biker Maxi Dress' - £55 - I am IN LOVE with this dress and so, so want it!!

And lastly, after reading so many glowing reviews of Fyrinnae, I really want to try some of their products, in particular their Arcane Magic Eye Shadow Collection and also Pixie Epoxy.

I hope you guys liked my top 5 payday wants - what is top of your list on your next payday/pay check??

Orla Kiely @ Tesco

Hi guys!

For those of us in the UK, Orla Kiely has teamed up with Tesco to create a lovely re-usable bag range, which will also help to raise funds for the children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
The first design in the limited edition range is called 'Scribble Pear' and should be in stores now:

 The price is £4, which I think is excellent AND some of the proceeds go towards helping a really worthwhile cause.

I will be picking one up - will you?

Hello again!

Hello my lovelies!

So sorry I have been away longer than intended - have been so ill with flu and a sinus infection all over Christmas - even Christmas Day!
I am on the mend now, so can start typing up the posts I promised :)

Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year!
