Want of the Week || Doc Martens dupe

I recently came across this website prettylittlethings.com after I had ordered a few things from boohoo and i've pretty much adored the website every since. A mixture of Boohoo and Missguided, the website offers on trend fashion products at a very reasonable price. Not everything is to my particular taste however these bad boys have caught my eye. I really like these boots as they are a pretty good dupe of the black patent doc martens! With this style of Doc Martens ranging from £79 up to £100, if your on a budget and feeling like treating yourself i feel like these boots will do just the trick as a Doc Martens dupe.

Has any one else found a really good dupe for Doc Martens... leave ALL your links below!

Want of the Week || Pearl Crop Top

Does anyone else think this cropped t-shirt is amazing! I think this top would look so lovely with a black pencil skirt and bright heels for a night time look or high waisted disco pants with an oversized coat in the day. I love how this top has black and white pearls, slightly pricey but I feel that this crop top looks a lot more expensive then £45.  Definitely a special girly treat for christmas!

Want of the Week || Studded Jumper

This weeks want of the week is this fluffy black studded jumper, I do adore this jumper as it seems so easy to wear. As it's black it will go with pretty much everything and anything, so you can chuck it on over a shirt, on is own or with a pair of jeans and riding boots for an everyday laid back look. I know I'm a fond lover of the black but it's just so easy to put with everything. I feel like this jumper would go particularly nicely in my wardrobe specially for those lazy days/uni days. Definitely a winter wardrobe essential!



Late October favourites

This is a big favourites this month! This month's favourites has been a collection of stuff that I've been loving over the past two months. Most of these products are make-up products as I have been testing out new products for up-dated winter make-up routine.

Mac face and body foundation in C6. A very light coverage but easily build-able that glides smoothly onto the skin. I found this product perfect foundation for just after the summer as I only needed a light coverage and I have quite sensitive skin. Still a really nice product throughout the winter months however I'll need to be re-matched again as this foundation is in my summer shade. Also, I prefer a heavier foundation throughout the winter. Mac lipstick in Snob, I adore the bright pink colour and I love the fact that it is a satin finish so it's not drying on the lips.

I had a bit of a spurge at ELF last month, as I really wanted to try out some new products for my winter make-up collection and I proud to say that quite a few products that I brought i've been using everyday, so it was definitely money well spent. The products I have been using a lot this month have been the wet gloss lash and brow clear mascara, eyebrow kit in dark and the elf daily cleansing spray. These products are so quick and easy to use, definitely a great buy at the price!

I previously wasn't a fan of these wipes; I really took a shine to the Johnson's cleansing wipes. I felt that the Nivea wipes were really irritating on the eyes in comparison however, I picked up these gentle wipes for dry to sensitive skin and I found these were perfect at removing everyday make-up and waterproof mascara. 

This has been my everyday life saver; perfect for everyday use and I feel it really helps to create a voluminous look to your hair also removes any greasiness. Perfect to use between washes and is suitable for all hair types.





Want of the Week || Chelsea Boots

I've wanted a pair of Chelsea boots for a long time but, I always feel like buying a pair of boots is an investment piece. Then I always decided that I'd rather buy 3 different items of clothing rather than one investment piece! As in the UK the temperature has severally plummeted, I have decided now might be the right time to invest in some booties (as converses in the winter are no good for my poor little toes). There have been a few pairs of boots that have taken my fancy including these Topshop pull on Chelsea boots and these lovely studded Chelsea boots. But I particular took a liking to these Miss Guided Chelsea boots as they are such reasonably priced at £35, perfect for every day wear and they are waterproof! I feel like these boots will go really well with dresses, but also leggings and skinny jeans for a casual day time look.



Style Crush: Solange Knowles

This months celebrity style crush is Solange Knowles. Solange Knowles, sister of Beyonce, has amazing talent at pulling of eccentric prints and bold colour blocking. Her unique taste in style seems effortless and is mastered by her choices of  accessories, that brings the whole outfit together. Solange's style has shone above her sisters and grown in the past few years after her choice of chopping her hair and going 'natural' in 2009. A definite style icon for 2012 but also and inspiration singer.



Week in photos #19

Dip dyed hair, birthday cocktails, birthday meal, pre-drinks, 21st cards, birthday cupcakes, russian furry headband, frankenstein fancies yum, halloween night- zombie nurse and megan fox ;). 

So I've decided to be really good this month on the blogging front! As deadline is finished and I do not have another for 6 weeks, I decided to plan the all the blog posts that I want to do for the month. I came to the conclusion as well, that I will continue to do my week in photos posts but every other week, so I have enough interesting content to share with you guys. It was 21st birthday last week and I had such an amazing time but I feel like I haven't stopped ever since! I do plan to write a birthday haul posts but taking photos on my camera have been a bit hit a miss at the moment (with this winter lighting) but I am determined to maintain/ get back into the whole blogging routine guys!

 I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
