Pay Day Purchase!

Well nearly pay day purchase! I bought it yesterday and today is actually pay day - though it's all being sucked up on bills anyway.

I saw this ages ago for full price and quite fancied it but didn't fancy splurging £75 on it. It caught my eye the other day while I was having a sneaky browse between seeing clients and it was £30 in the sale! I brought my lovely sister along with me today and thanks to her student discount we snapped it up for £27. It's no longer available online but there were a couple left in my local store.

It is a lovely comfortable fit and will be handy for work as I'm often out and about freezing my bits off. While it maybe isn't the most flattering of shapes, I love a nice coat that I can hide under. My only gripe so far is the LOOSE BUTTONS. Why do so many jackets and coats and clothes with buttons not have them sewn on properly?! If I'd have paid £75 for this I'd be mightily pissed off.


Anyway have a fantastic weekend lovelies and I hope payday has been good to you if you've had one :)

NOTD Nails Inc. Victoria

Just a quickie from me today but this week I'm wearing Nail Inc.'s "Victoria". I've had it for ages but rarely wear it as I'm not a massive fan of the brand and it looks so dark in the bottle. I was pleasantly surprised with it when it's dried though. It is wearing a little from the tips already though but it is in its third day of wear...

Nifty Knitwear

I tend to be a big fan on the long jumper but I've discovered a new affection for the "normal" length one and am lusting after some lovely ones I've seen recently. I have one particular favourite from the list below... anyone care to guess which one?

Red Multi Stripe Patch Pocket Top £40 Oasis
(also available in navy blue)
Louche Kat Intarsia Jumper £45 JOY

Knitted Owl Motif Jumper £38 Topshop

Sorry the pics are abit teeny but hopefully all the links should work. Are there any other cute ones out there at the minute before I order the one I have my beady eye on come payday?

Have a lovely Friday folks!

Weekend Baking

Some photos of the chocolate cherry cupcakes and mini victoria sponges I baked for my Aunt's Birthday over the weekend.

Thankfully for my New Year healthy eating kick most of them have been eaten and there aren't too many leftovers...

If anyone is interested in the recipes just let me know and I can get them written up.

So there ya have it. I'm half thinking about growing out my fringe but I don't know... it's like my security blanket. What do you think?

I might go for similar make up tomorrow and be braver with the end flicks.

Hope you've had a lovely weekend!

New Years Eve 2011 - OOTD/FOTD/NOTD

I hope you've all had a fabulous NYE and an even better 2012. I ended up going out last night quite unexpectedly. We had planned a quiet night in with a takeaway but I was getting itchy feet about wanting to get dressed up so we ended up going out and meeting friends. Sometimes last minute ideas are the best ones though for the 3rd night out during this festive period I had failed to fake tan! I'm not a big fake tanner - it's usually strictly for nights out but recently I just CANNOT BE BOTHERED. It seems like a good idea until I see my ghost like self in photos beside other people though. Ooops.

Anyway here are some photos of what I wore etc. Sorry about the quality. I have some better ones but they include other people and I don't want to have them apprearing on my slightly dirty little secret blog so you''l have to make to with these...

Dress - from ASOS in 2009
Jacket - recent TK Maxx (£14.99)
Boots - Dorothy Perkins 2010
Tights - ASOS £10
Watch - DKNY 2007
Bag - Dune 2008ish

Face - Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, MUA pressed powder, Benefit Georgia
Eyes - Illamasqua Liquid Metal Phenomena, Avon supershock eyeliner, Eyelure eyelashes, Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Waterproof Mascara, MAC Carbon

Lips - MAC creme d'nude

Nails - Rimmel Lycra Pro in Beige Style

Hair - I used my new Babyliss Root Boost for the first time (Mr L bought me one for Christmas) and I must say I was super impressed but will do a proper review soon!

So there you have it. It's quite a mix of my favourite clothes and make up at the minute. I think I've included everything there. I was slightly scared that the tights were TOO MUCH but in the end I loved them but know they aren't for everyone.

I hope you all enjoyed your NYE as much as I did.
