New Look Haul & OOTD

So, I haven't stuck awfully well to my no-spending promise :/ Must try harder!

Just wanted to share my little New Look haul with you guys :)

 Top - Bottom, L-R:
Gold by Giles Deacon Highlighter
Gold by Giles Deacon nail varnishes in Purple, Blue, Brown and Dark Red
Rollasoles - LOVE these, my first pair and I think they will be the first of many!
Nail Art by Technic
Nail Art pens
Lip Foils by Lip Rock - never tried these before!
Katy Perry for Eyelure false lashes - in "Oh My Lash!", "Oh Honey!" and "Cool Kitty".



Red & Green Espadrilles - these were on a 2 for £10 offer!

 Cream & Black Polka Dot Mini Skirt

 Cream & Red Polka Dot Skirt by Kelly Brook

 Union Jack Lips tshirt - this is for my Jubilee outfit tomorrow! :)

Todays OOTD



Today I wore my new polka dot mini skirt, with a black vest top and a black slash-back t shirt, and some black leggings underneath.

 I accessorized with my current favourite item - my Thomas Sabo charm bracelet

 And my birdcage necklace from New Look

 My black flip flop sandals from New Look

Close up of the back detailing on my top - I'm not brave enough to wear this without a vest top underneath!



 I went for a much heavier than usual eye look today, as I thought it matched the outfit well, 
I used a white eyeshadow by Lipsy, black Barry M Supersoft eyecrayon, and Collection 2000 gel eyeliner on both my upper and lower eyelid lines, I also used Benefits They're Real mascara.

    1. They're amazing aren't they?! I've got them in my bag, I'm almost excited to get sore feet so I can pop them on lol!
      They're such a great idea, wish they'd been around 5 years ago when I was doing more clubbing!

    1. Yep, I thought I'd start trying some out! I've worn fake nails for the past few days which means I havn't been biting my own nails - so they've grown a little! :)

      Will be doing some posts testing out the foils, lashes, etc over the next few days :)

      Thanks hun! It was really comfy to wear!
