Christening outfit. Under £50

This weekend was a highly anticipated weekend for my family. My nephew turned 2 and on the same day we held his Christening.
My nephew, Joshua was spoilt rotten as was expected and we had a lovely day.

I challenged myself to get an outfit under £50 and get it from Primark. I DID IT!
I had loads of compliments about it and how classy I looked.

Jacket £19, Vest top £2.50, Pants £11, Shoes £16- Total, £48.50.

Closer look

Micky came to the christening. This is my Uncle.

Man of the moment, Joshua. 

Matthew and myself :) 

With my outfit, I thought and was right, that everyone would be wearing dresses. However, it wasn't the nicest of weather and I wanted to look a bit different. So I went for the on trend monochrome situation. I loved my outfit. Matthew was asked to be the god father of Joshua which made the day even more special. We loved every second of it. 

So go and grab a bargain at Primark and get yourself an outfit for under £50!!!

Essie copies.

So today I was feeling a little sorry for myself and as everybody knows shopping is the best medicine. So I headed into town and bought myself a few little items. I went into Superdrug and I found at the Makeup academy (MUA) counter, that they've brought out a new collection of Nail varnishes. The packaging is very similar to Essie and the colours look very similar as well. The best thing about them is that they were each £1!!! I could have bought 8 of the MUA ones for just one Essie. I picked up 3.

 I for one am not a massive spender when it comes to nail varnishes. With my job I cant wear nail varnish so I have to make the most of it when I'm off. However, I do own some expensive ones but I don't get the most out of them. 

From left to right - Plum Noir, Frozen Yoghurt and Pistachio Ice cream.
The colours I chose I thought would all be perfect for Spring. 

I have tried out the Frozen Yoghurt  one and I have to admit, it is fantastic!! I would go as far as to say it is on a par with the Essie varnishes. They dry VERY quickly and you could possibly get away with just one coat. 

I think My favourite one out of the 3 I picked is possibly the Pistachio Ice cream one. it's so light and is perfect for making an outfit.

I always think that if I wasn't in an accessorising kind of mood then I'd just paint my nails. It makes me feel more womanly. 

SO go and grab yourself a bargain.. :)

Outfit ideas.

My life consists of my job and university. So the first time I get more than 3 hours away from either I go over board on clothes.

I will definitely be recreating these two looks given half the chance. Especially now the weather I'm looking up..

Stay safe guys..


This is my first Saturday off in a while, I best send it wisely.

Firstly, early morning breakfast. I'm going for a costa breakfast. Strawberry granola yogurt, a latte and a bottle of water. I'm not usually a big breakfast eater but I thought I may as well spoil myself.
I don't usually sit in coffee shops and blog because I feel like its quite pretensions, not my cup of tea (no pun intended).

Then, I've got a few errands to run, pick things up, drop things off - the usual. But whilst I'm in town I'm thinking of having a nosy at what the high street has to offer me. I am in need of a new cleanser so that may be on the cards.
I also have a lot of uni work to catch up on and need to stop putting it off. I find myself putting it off to go to the gym, who does that? No body likes the gym.

It's also the John Smith Grand national today, I've got my bets down, not that I understand anything about it. I didn't even know how to place a bet.
I thought I'd get involved this year.


It's starting to look and finally act like spring. This makes me super happy.

Perfect spring look? I think so.. I'll recreate this look if anyone would like that?

Favourite Lipsticks

Happy Wednesday guys.. 

First of all, I'd just like to express my excitement about the weather change. It's warming up!! Finally. 

Anyway, back to point..

I love lipsticks and changing the colour frequently. It's safer to change the colour of your lipstick than it is to go out in a massively bright eye colour. Wearing a bold lipstick can take an outfit from being girly and fun, to sexy all depending on what colour you choose and what texture you prefer. 

 These are my five favourite colours, I have to admit it was hard to narrow them down. And now, just looking at them I didn't realise that they are all practically pink. Haha. All five of them are within reasonable pricing, mainly high street. The most expensive one was the MAC one. 

 This one is a Maybelline Lipstick. Its a pinky/Orange colour and it has a slight shimmer also.  It's called Pink Peony.This costed £5.99.

This one, as you can see is MAC, I've used this to it's death. I'm definitely going to have to re - purchase this badboy!  Its called Lustre. I got it whilst I was in America. I think it was about $17.

This is From the Kate Moss Collection for Rimmel. It is probably my favourite lipstick of all time! it's in  number 107, and I know this was really popular around Christmas time, because I couldn't get hold of it and really wanted to try it! This was £6.99.

This is my favourite day time Lipstick. I could wear it for the rest of my life. It's just a perfect pink for Spring time, as it can be worn with anything. It's from Revlon and its in the colour Pink in the Afternoon. If I was to recommend only one of these five, It would be this one. £6.99.

Finally, this one is quite a young, fun colour, and I've worn this a lot on nights out with my friends or when I feel carefree and that I don't need to act responsible. This is also a Rimmel Lipstick. It's in the colour  Heartbreaker. This was only £3.99. 

So go explore, let me know what you think and any recommendations that you think I'd like :)
