Want of the Week || Cut Out Boots

After glazing through my Grazia magazine last week, I actually came across a dupe of these cut out boots from Office in the Grazia fashion chart and for the same price too. Link available here. Seeing the boots in the fashion chart then reminded of how much I was in love with these boots and how much I wanted them! However, I don't know whether I could justify spending £85 on them. So I did a bit of research and found this dupe pair from Missguided, which is now sold out and now I am unsure as to whether I want to spend £85 on the boots when I can possibly buy a cheaper dupe... Moral of the story, when you see something you like get it before you regret it!

What I brought 7#

Another small jewellery haul again. I just thought I'd share with you guys a few bits i've picked up over the last week. About a week ago there was a student event on in the main shopping center in Birmingham called the Bullring. Most store had 20% or 30% off student discount instead of the usual 10%. As you can imagine I went a bit crazy and spent quite a lot of money that day! These are just a few jewellery bits I picked up on that day. I also have another post planned to show you guys what clothing items I brought that day, so look out for that when I get back.

Have you brought anything new?

Want of the week || Polkadot dungarees

Dungerees are back! I actually really like the 'dungaree trend' for summer especially black dungarees, I think they have the potential to look really chic and elegant. These dungaree shorts would look really cute with a sheer white blouse underneath for a smart-casual look. Even though I really like that dungarees are on trend I'm in two minds about actually buying a pair for two simple reasons. The first reason is I'm quite tall and with any playsuit/all in one/jumpsuit I find it very hard to fit my body therefore, I'm afraid I may have this problem with a pair of dungarees. The second reason is because I know as soon as I buy a pair of dungaree, I will wear them for a few months and they'll be out of fashion again! What is a girl to do??

What do you guys think of dungarees? Do I buy into the trend or do I invest in a statement piece?

Style Crush | Jessica Alba

*All images taken from Pintrest and glamourmagazine.co.uk 

I don't know about you guys but I alway remember Jessica Alba from the Tv programme Dark Angel in the late 90's- early 2000. I also remember her from the film Honey (I use to love that film)! An american Tv and film actor and a mother. I admire her chic and sophisticated style, her casual outfits are simple yet always have a fashion edge and her red carpet always looks are so classy and elegant. she's absolutely gorgeous!

What do you think of Jessica Alba's style?

April Favourites

L'Oreal Paris- True match foundation in Golden Amber 
I am a big fan of L'Oreal Paris products. After purchasing the L'oreal Lumi Magique foundation a few months ago (review available here) and receiving a lovely comment from Hola Bambi about their true match foundation, it would be rude not to try it out. This foundation blends perfectly into the skin creating a flawless matte finish, my go-to foundation at the moment.

Rimmel London - Moisturising Lipstick in Nude Delight
After watching another video from the You-tuber Beauty Crush talking about this product, I had to go out and get it! A your lips but better moisturising lipstick, perfect for an everyday makeup look.

Rimmel London - Waterproof eyeliner in Nude
Another product featured in one of Beauty Crush's videos. A great waterproof liner that creates a bigger and brighter look to your eyes, a natural looking alternative to a white liner.

Collection - Illuminating touch brightening concealer in Glow 3
An affordable concealer that works wonders if you suffer from harsh dark circles or blemishes. perfect as a base product underneath a foundation but quite heavy in texture.

Forever 21- Cross Bracelet 
Such a cute delicate bracelet that goes with pretty much everything!

What are your April favourites?
