In ballet pumps, clogs, shoes, topshop, what milly wore on May 31, 2010 at 10:51 am
Hey lauder-ettes
happy bank holiday Monday
Here is what I wore yesterday:
Green Sailor Dress: Orion (customised by removing the elasticated waist)
Black Shimmery Cardigan: Topshop
Acid Wash Leggings: New Look
Blush coloured bag: New look sale £7
Face Ballet Flats: Topshop
Lightning Bolt Necklace: White Trash Charms
on the subject of shoes,
I thought i would show you a few pairs I bought recently
I know I know,
I don’t need any more shoes
but I just cant help myself!
Gorgeous Face Ballet Pumps from topshop
£25.00
Pietra toning flipflops by FitFlop (from my work)
I cannot tell you how much of a fan of fitflops I am
I own 4 pairs!
OK so they may not tone that much,
But boy they are the comfiest shoes ever,
I could walk miles in them!

Leather Flipflops with spike detail: Topshop
I seriously love the spikes on these
Very givenchy / louboutin

However,
They are the most uncomfortable flipflops ever
Fact

Hanne Tan Clogs: ASOS £35
I so wanted to buy into the clog trend,
but I don’t do high heels so i thought these would be perfect
Love the style, just like topshops hasbeens but much cheaper!

I love them,
They are a little but too big, as I’m a half size but not too bad
not the comfiest shoes ever,
but not too bad, I’m sure I  can get used to them!

BAAAHH
How cute are these!
Seriously!!!

I LOVE them! A lot
Topshop £22

they jingle when you walk!

I heard a lot about these from fellow bloggers
So I got myself a pair!
Tres cute
made from rubber
and great for every day

Melissa £25

Pretty comfy too!

have you guys bought any shoes recently??

I’m Back, wanna see what I have been up to??

In photography, portrait, Uni work on May 21, 2010 at 7:55 am
Yay last hand in was yesterday
so I now have time to blog!
I tell you what I have really missed it!
So if you have been wondering what i have been up to
Firstly here is one of my projects,
we had to photograph 2 of the 7 deadly sins
Vanity

Gluttony

So yeah i really liked how they came out,
the first one i bought the wedding dress from a charity shop, bloody £30 quid!

The second one is just all my stuff, in my garden!
supposed to be about excess in general,
like drugs, shopping , food etc!

those images are heavily edited,
as that’s what the module required

Next I had to take a professional looking portrait

And this is my image
My GBF Lewis!

I totally love this image,
I kinda surprised myself!
It is COMPLETELY unedited, nothing done to it at all!

and for textiles we could do what we liked
and i went off on a mirror theme
for interior design
This is the chair I transformed

From this

To this

I printed and embellished the fabric for the seat,
and the back of the chair!
(click any pics to make them bigger)

So that’s everything,
except a whole bunch of essays!

What do you think of my work?
Have you guys had any hand ins / exams!
Good Luck to everyone that’s still working hard!

Look forward to blogging tonnes over the summer!

New Arrival: Topshop Make-up, Swatches & First Impressions

In make-up, new arrival, review, topshop on May 8, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Hi lovely readers

as you may or may not know I was super excited about Topshops new make-up range
So i placed my order on launch day and today it arrived!
*WARNING PIC HEAVY!*

Left To Right:
Lip Polish – Coral
Amazon Nails – Cloud
Amazon Lip & Cheek Tint – Bitten Berry
Eye Crayon – Midnight
Amazon Metallic Kohl Liner – First Light
Lipstick Crayon – Vintage
Amazon Crayon – Sun Shower
Skin Tint – Fair

Amazon Metallic Kohl Liner – First Light

 Lipstick Crayon – Vintage

 Amazon Crayon – Sun Shower

Skin Tint – Fair

Swatches:

Skin Tint – Fair

Amazon Nails – Cloud

 
Eye Crayon – Midnight

  
Eye Crayon – Midnight
Amazon Metallic Kohl Liner – First Light
Lipstick Crayon – Vintage
Amazon Crayon – Sun Shower

Amazon Lip & Cheek Tint – Bitten Berry
Eye Crayon – Midnight
Amazon Metallic Kohl Liner – First Light
Lipstick Crayon – Vintage
Amazon Crayon – Sun Shower
Lip Polish – Coral (top right)

That’s Everything!

Recommended: Amazon Lip & Cheek Tint – very good colour, more of a purple based red compared to benetint etc, really lovely feel and consistency, plus staying power!
A Bit of a Let Down: Skin Tint- Fair. Totally different to the swatch on the website
Comes out pretty orange, once blended not too bad but the most expensive thing in the range at £10
Smells very floral too
Absolute Bargain:Amazon Nails – Cloud! I’m not sure if its the same for each colour but great formula opaque in one coat! easy to apply and only £5
Biggest Surprise: Both the Amazon Crayon and the Amazon Kohl, are really good, super smooth, great colour. Very like the urban decay liners or MAC pearl gliders.
Not sure it was worth it: Eye Crayon – Midnight. Its not terrible but after swatching both the amazon liners as well its just not anywhere near as good as them
It seems I liked everything from the trend range a lot better than their basics
the Amazon line is a little more, so maybe that’s where they put all the little gems?
Any thoughts?

Recommended: Chanel Nouvelle Vague (I know there’s loads of hype, but it really is lovely on!)
A Bit of a Let Down: O.P.I Coney Island Cotton Candy ( such a nice colour but took literally 6 coats to make opaque!)
Absolute Bargain: Nails Inc Paris & London (great colours, and fab application, free with two bottles of diet coke at boots! deffo worth it, will be going back for the other two!)
Biggest Surprise: O.P.I Mod About You ( opaque in one coat! very chuffed with that!)
Not sure they were worth it: Revlon Minted & Lilac Pastille ( not very opaque at all, and the lilac is more of a pale pink to me, and I have better mint greens, like Barry m)
Phew that’s it,
I’ve also got quite a few china glaze on the way which I’m excited about!
Hope you like this post,
I would love to hear what you guys think!
