Hello dear readers
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank your for taking your time to read 
and sometimes comment on my blog
I really appreciate every single person that enjoys my blog!
I’ve lost 2 or 3 followers recently which in a way has puzzled me
 but also made me think that perhaps they weren’t following me for the right reasons anyway!
I hope the rest of you still like what I do!
So here is what I’ve been wearing this week!
On Wednesday I was having a day sorting out the house
but when I did venture out this is what I wore:
Streetlight Long T-shirt: River Island – £5
Ripped Jeans – £10 religion @ ASOS (dyed dark blue myself)
Multi Coloured Quilted Bag: ASOS £5 (last year)
Skull Necklace: Mawi @ Cocosa £39 reduced from £85
Jewelled Short Cowboy Boots: Russell & Bromley £195 (reduced from £295)
On Friday I helped host a swishing event!
For those of you that don’t know what swishing events are
 its where ladies get together bringing clothes they don’t want any more and swap them!
It was a great success and all in aid of cancer research U.K
In my capacity of fashion adviser this is what I wore:
Embroidered Oversized T-shirt: Topshop Sale ( last year)
Geek Glasses: Topshop
Utility Belt: Tokidoki for Lesportsac @ TKMAXX
Jeggings material skirt: New Look £5

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,

Hope you like this post,

Fashion Fix: One to Watch

In bow, chanel, fashion fix, marc jacobs, watch on April 4, 2010 at 9:18 pm
Good evening!
How are we all this fine Easter Sunday?
So today I’m doing a post I’ve been wanting to do for a while
Watches!
I just love watches,
I know some people just have 1 or 2
but to me they are just another accessory!
First up are these three,
they are my everyday safe watches
L to R
Brown leather watch by Fossil: £60
bought for me by my mum for my 18th
used to wear it every day but now I find it boring
White watch with coloured numbers by Avis: £25
Love this one, bought on a whim because it was quite cheap
very late 80’s early 90’s
Watch with a mother of pearl face and zebra print strap by Gossip: £25
I ordered this one off QVC
I wanted to love it, but the strap is really stiff which puts me off wearing it
These are my favourite watches
L to R
White bow bangle watch by Betsey Johnson £50
this is seriously cute,
Its very feminine and pretty great to wear when going out
the only thing is the bangle doesn’t have a catch on it
so it just comes off when pulled
the little diamond in the middle comes up to reveal the face
Next is my favourite watch of all time
My Black patent leather Marc Jacobs guitar watch: £150
The first designer item I have ever owned
I bought it after seeing it on MaryKate Olsen
a bit more expensive than all the others
but totally worth it
people comment on it all the time
and it helps me channel my inner rock chick!
and on the right
My Black and Pink Retro LTD Digital watch: £50
My boyfriend got me this for my 21st!
I love the colours, its soo 80’s!
It matches my hair
and I love the fact its digital
as truth be told I’m not actually that good at reading the time!
and lastly
In the middle my Red and Yellow LTD Watch: £50
It reminds me of Lego and McDonald’s!
super kitsch, and it makes a plain outfit pop
this was me trying to stop myself buying a more expensive ToyWatch
like these:
and it kinda worked, I’m perfectly happy with this one!
on the left and right
my Sekonda black and white Chanel J12 lookalikies : 2 for £30 or £20 each
I bought these this week
which is what prompted me to do the post
I love them so classic!
they fit in with the ceramic / plastic trend
but go with everything
and Hell they look like Chanel!
how many watches do you own?
do you think of them as an accessory?
Hope you enjoyed!
xXx

New Arrival: Nail Varnish, Nudes and Nylons!

In alice in wonderland, chanel, make-up, nail varnish, new arrival, new look, nude, o.p.i, skull, tights, topshop on March 7, 2010 at 6:42 pm
ello tink
how are we all this fine Sunday??
Thought I would show you guys some recent purchases of mine!
Went on a little O.P.I kick!
found a really good store on ebay
I bought L to R:
Tickle my Francey
My Private Jet
Absolutely Alice
Mad as a Hatter
Rapidry Topcoat
I larf them all,
I especially am in love with mad as a hatter
my god its the glitteriest thing I have ever seen
however it was a NIGHTMARE to get off
Nail varnish remover didn’t do a lot,
so I resorted to picking it off
and it took half the top layer of my nails with it!
So now they are all uneven and bumpy 😦
thought I would show you how I store my polishes
I know its not the most organised of collections,
but I love my paul frank pouch and had to put it to use!
Talking of nail varnish,
when looking through my mothers nail polish box I found these
and she hardly ever wears nail varnish,
and I’m sure I haven’t seen her wear these colours even though they are pretty old
So I have borrowed them 🙂
and I cant believe I forgot to take a picture
I own CHANEL PARTICULIERE
I love it,
I know I’m buying into all the hype
but its such a nice colour
I was on a waiting list for a few weeks from my local Chanel counter
and she phoned me and I went and got it!
I got a little white Chanel paper bag too,
I had a perma-smile for about 2 days!
anyway back to my new arrivals
I got this trompe l’oeil inspired dress from oasis
Its soo cute,
very comfy and easy to wear
I bought it in black with a white print as well!
I got this over sized jumper from New Look
I love its fairytale theme,
and of course nude colouring again!
It even has pearls sewn onto the frame!
I also bought it in grey,
Its over sized so I bought the size down,
Its also slightly cropped
last but not least
I bought these skirts from topshop
I bought the green one first and then went back for the black and grey/lilac
they are made from nylon and elastane
they are almost like thick tights material!
the come in one size,
and they are amazingly stretchy,
they are a really versatile design, you can wear them as a high waisted skirt, t-shirt tucked in
pull them down for a knee length pencil
or ruche it up for a mini!

phew that’s it for now guys,
don’t forget to scroll down and enter my 50 followers giveaway!

New Arrival: Make-up and More!

In chanel, leather, make-up, new arrival, polka-dot, snood, tights, tkmaxx, worker boots on February 12, 2010 at 10:54 pm
Hello ladies,
Its struck me in the last few days that I’ve bought quite a few things in the last couple of weeks
And strangely for me, a lot of it has been make-up!
So I thought I would share with you what I’ve been buying
Above is all the make-up!
including
5 lipsticks
6 Nail Varnishes
9 Make-up Brushes
Got loads of new Brushes
the white ones are models own, I’m really pleased with them considering how cheap they are
The silver are Ruby and Millie
and the wiggly black ones are Sonia Kashuk from SpaceNK
love the brushes, but they took forever to arrive and spaceNK charge a lot for postage.
Nail Varnishes,
Im loving the Greige trend, started by Chanel’s elusive colour Particuliere
Models own had 50 percent off a couple of weeks ago
so I took full advantage and bought a lot including these 4 nail varnishes,
the 3 brushes and a little pot of loose navy eyeshadow.
I also bought this colour by Essie – Chinchilly
the Chanel jade green dupe by Barry M
and not pictured OPI’s you Don’t know Jaques
I bought my first lot of illamasqua too,
they had a 50% off section
So i bought 3 cream eyeshadows
In a shimmery white, taupey grey and black
I really like them, but have had trouble stopping them slide around my face, any tips?
I’ve also bought some lipsticks,
3 from Barry m, in pale pink, lavender and nude
and a nude one from illamasqua also in the sale
I love love love the three Barry m lipsticks, really moisturizing and fab colours
I love the colour of the illamasqua one, but I’ve broken it already
Its all wibbly wobbly at the base, so I think I’ve managed to snap it
which is weird cos I’ve never broken a lipstick in my life 😦
I don’t know what to do with it now, any ideas?
I literally could not believe my eyes when I saw Henry Holland tights in TKMAXX
Above are just three, but I ended up buying 9 pairs in the end
Loads of designs in blue pink and purple.
They are actually super comfy too, they feel good quality.
I also bought more tights from H&M and am planning a tights post!
I got this spotty dress from New Look, should have been £28
but it was reduced to £20 and i got 20% student discount on top of that.
Also I bought a new snood from Topshop
I love the nude colour and its really long
perfect for my how to wear a snood post!
I got an Eiffel tower t-shirt from topshop
using a voucher that I got for my birthday off a lovely friendling
Still a sucker for spots,
I couldn’t resist this top/dress from River island,
I love the style and frilly hem
just wish it was a bit longer
And just in case you were wondering,
I decided to keep these boots in the end
I love them, and have worn them quite a few times already!
I also spotted Ugly Betty series 3 for £17.99 on play.com and I had to get it
I now own all 3 series, perfect for a girly night in
PHEW
I have bought a lot,
and that’s not even all of it,
Night Night girlies

I have totally loved my outfit today,

Piratey leather boots: Topshop, bought used from EBay
Trusty Topshop Leggings,
And i was wearing pearls earlier, but they got taken off before i took my picture!
Also this week i have bought many pairs of shoes,
I know I don’t need any…. but I cant be expected to leave a bargain when I find one… or five!
Coincidentally they have been mainly black and white

I bought these boots (above and below) yesterday from Office
Amazing leather ankle boots, very Alexa Chung,
Reduced from £80 to £15 each!
and only size 37s left…. just for me!

I Also bought a couple of pairs of brogues this week,
These black and white ones I ordered from the Office website
I love them, I can tell they will need breaking in though
£40 reduced from £60

And below are the white ones I told you about a few days ago
So so comfy
and only £10 from Topshop in the sale
They were the only pair, a bit big, but fine with socks and innersoles!


Last but not least there are these beauties,
Very Chanel,
Super soft leather
I ordered them at the same time as the black and white brogues
£15
Bargain
