I don’t have enough words to express my obsession with this cute little bag from Oasis. I recently did a post on this bag and two other, but it’s just amazing. And goes with so many outfits. It’s out of stock at House of Fraser (where I originally got it), but you can buy it at Asos or your local Oasis.
The boots are from River Island (check out my previous posts). Wore them the first time today and they are not only stylish but extremely comfy, too.

And yep, I fed swans today. This is a very relaxing thing to do btw. These majestic and beautiful creatures are simply mesmerising.

I finally got my packages yesterday. And I am absolutely loving shoes from River Island. It’s only been once that I had a bad shoe experience with RI, but all the shoes that I or my mum purchased from them lately are beautiful and VERY good quality. These stunning black boots I found on sale for only half the price, so I purchased them immediately. I love everything about them – the gold detailing, straps, lovely black leather and the fact that they are insanely comfortable. The only bad thing is that when I first tried them, it turned out the chains were slightly too long, hence awful and very loud sounds while walking. But I fixed it by removing one link from each chain. They still look fab but now in silence.

Second pair of boots I got, are these cognac ones from Aldo. I don’t own much shoes/bags or anything else of this color. I think black is easier to style, however I really liked them. Just like the RI boots, these ones are very nice quality, fit well and are comfy. I feel like it’s fine to get a cheaper faux leather pumps/ballet flats/sandals, but with boots it’s reasonable to pay a bit more and get leather ones because obviously you are wearing them when it’s cold and it’s great to have good quality shoes for winter season.

And finally, the last pair I wanted to show you guys, are these nude pumps that my Grandma gave me as a bday gift. They are also from Aldo. These classic beige heels I am going to wear a lot in Spring because the look great with literally any outfit! I am also thinking of bying the some ones in black patent since I love them so much. Also they are pretty comfortable which is a massive plus, too.

I have recently purchased some shoes from River Island. They were on sale for about $25-35. They still have some gorgeous heels and flats on their website, so definitely go check them out.

Ok, so going back to my order, I have been a fan of RI clothing for more than a year, I love how their jeans fit me and their dresses don’t need to be alterated – they are perfect for petite girls like me. But I have never been a particular fan of their shoes. I just didn’t like the quality and also their shoes used to run pretty large.

However, when I saw these beauties on the website for such an affordable prise, I thought I’d give it a try. And I am happy I did!

Image

I absolutely love these! I ordered them in UK size 3 (US 6, European 36) and they are sooooo little – they run quite small and narrow, which works great for my tiny feet. I loved the quality too. These shoes look very expensive and super cute with many different outfits. The heel is not too high and is rather comfortable. Overall, great shoes and great prise!

Since I haven’t been makeup/beauty shopping for a while, I ran out of some products, plus I wanted to try some new ones.

Okay, as you guys know, Rimmel is probably one of my favourite makeup brands ever. Their products are amazing, so I decided to grab a couple of Rimmel stuff.

First of all, I almost ran out of my favourite powder, mine is in shade 005 ‘Silky beige’:

Image

It’s a great powder for those of us with combination to oily skin. But for summer, when we all get sweaty, it’s a must.

Image

Image

As you guys know, I love Apocalips lip stains and I am especially loving this one in ‘Nude eclipse’. It’s gorgeous, has very creamy opaque formula, stays on well and has very fresh scent to it. Speaking about the Scandaleyes eye shadow stick, it’s my first one and I thinkย it’s a very decent product for the prise. Again, very creamy, vibrant colour, doesn’t smudge. Mine is in shade ‘Bulletproof beige’. And finally the last Rimmel purchase was this eye primer. I haven’t used many eye primers before, only Urban Decay’s one. I usually use my Maybelline’s Color Tattoo eyeshaws as eye shadow base and they work great for me. I was very curious and excited to get this primer, but I didn’t love it that much. I mean it is okay, nothing special.

Next thing I got – a new lip gloss. Since I ran out of my favourite from Sephora, I needed something similar – something very light, non-sticky, moisturising and with a beautiful subtle shimmer to it.

Image

This YSL gloss is in color ‘Golden Macadamia’ and in person it is more beige than pink. I really love the packaging and how gorgeous the color is. However I am not a fan of the brush and the smell. I can say that overall, it’s okay, but I definitely like my Sephora lip gloss (which is like 3 times cheaper) much more!

That’s it for my makeup purchases, and now going to my recent beauty buys.

Image

If you like peel off facial masks, you are probably going to enjoy this one by Beauty Formulas – smells great, cleanses perfectly and is very affordable. Another Beauty Formulas purchase – my favourite cleansing wipes. Because my skin is sensitive, I get these ones and they are brilliant – they remove all the impurities and don’t break me out. And they are also very cheap.

You guys know, how much I love Lee Stafford hair products and I really like my new heat protecting spray. It definitely does what it says. Definitely try it if you are looking for a good product that protects your skin against flat iron, curling wand, blow drying, etc.

And finally, the last thing I got was a new daily moisturiser.

Image

This one by Garnier is pretty good. I apply a tiny amount on my face when I am not wearing makeup. Since my skin is oily, I can’t put it under foundation, I just use some facial toner. ย I find that this stuff is really good for those days when you want your skin to rest a bit, but if you have dry to normal skin, you can probably use it instead of a primer, because it leaves your skin very silky.

That’s it for my recent haul,

Love you guys

Hi guys!

I am so in love with my nails! I am wearing navy matte nailpolish with a little bit of gold. I know, it’s spring and there are so many pretty pastels and neons out there, but I am a 100% a dark nailpolish girl ๐Ÿ™‚

And since it’s getting warmer, I got a pair of new shoes. They are comfy, versatile and cute. But the best part about them is that they are glittery and studded at the same time!

Image

The studs are gold, which I love!!! And the lining is just adorable. I think Betsey Johnson flats are lovely!

What do you guys think?

Hello ladies,

Just a quick post on 3 makeup items I got on Friday. Super excited about these!!!

Image

First of all, I got a new concealer. It’s from Garnier and it works amazingly for the under eye area. I feel like most concelers are perfect for hiding blemishes and other skin imperfections, but are not that good for eye circles, but the Garnier one is perfect for delicate skin and is a great moisturiser too! It’s around $10 in Watson’s, or check out any other drugstore.

The other 2 items I purchased from feelunique.comย  and they are amazing!

Have you guys heard that Cosmopolitan came up with this lovely brow kit? It’s not too big, like some other brow kits, includes tweezers, little brush (which is not very good quality and I don’t use it), highlighting pencil, 2 eyeshadows for defining your brows, brow wax, little mirror and 3 brow stencils. It was $14 and I think it’s a lovely product for the price.

And finally, a new blush from Rimmel. This is sooooooo cute! Honestly, Rimmel products are so good for a ridiculously affordable price. The blush was only $7 btw

Okay, so it’s a lovely peachy pink color. It’s not exactly matte, it has a very subtle shimmer to it, which I love. It’s in color ‘Pink Rose’.

That’s it for my little makeup shopping. Hope u guys like it.

Hi,

I literally just opened my last package from Asos. I instagramed the pictures of what I ordered, and thought it would be great to share with you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t get much, just a couple of items:

Image

How cute is this little ring ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it! It has little crystals and two gold-tone spikes. Also it’s not a single ring, it’s a set of two small rings, that you can wear separately, or together. I got this ring on sale for only $7!

If you are wondering about my nails, they re short again and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad about it… Anyways, they’ll grow back again soon. And yes, I have a new nailpolish from Sally Hansen Salon Manicure. This beautiful dark burgundy/purple, almost black color, is called ‘Pat on the Black 660’. I think it’s very similar to Essie’s ‘Wicked’. What do you guys think?

Image

Okay, let me just say that I NEVER buy the same things in different colors, except for basic tees (you can’t have too many of those, right), but the moment I saw these beauties, I knew I was going to get more than one pair! Asos offers them in green, champagne, white, coral, blue (remind me a lot of Anna Dello Russo’s collection for H&M) and clear ones. And they are all gorgeus!!!! As you can see I got them in green and champagne, because I think the green ones will accentuate my green eyes, and the champagne wil look cute on anyone with warm skin tone. I must say that white, coral and blue ones will look fabulous on girls with deeper skintones. As for the earings with clear stones, they are not exactly clear, as they have blue, green and pink undertones to them. Very pretty!

As always the quality and design of Asos jewellery is amazing! I got each pair for $14.

Also, I wanted to inform you guys that Asos has a new promo code. 25% off discount for 48 hours. Just enter code HAPPYJAN at checkout. Isn’t that great! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you guys enjoy the promo code ๐Ÿ˜‰
