OOTD & NOTD: Bows & Bling!

Well it's been a while since I've done an outfit of the day post, so I thought I'd show you what I wore today.

This is a new dress I bought from New Look last week, for just £10.00 in their 24 hour flash sale! :)

I wore it with a pair of ankle length black leggings, and my comfiest pair of mid-heels - also from New Look a few months back :)


I wore my hair in a bun accessorized with a polka dot bow clip that matched the polka dot bow pattern on my dress.

As for my make up, I used: Maybelline dream matte mousse foundation, Barry M Supersoft eye crayon in black, Benefit They're Real mascara, Collection 2000 Gel eye liner,  Benefit Silky lipstick in Ruby Vibes, Benefit Coralista blush, my HD Brows brow defining palette on my brows, and the gold eyeshadow from my Lipsy Daytime Doll palette on my eyes.

And for my nails, I stuck with the bow theme and went for Pink of course - as today is Wednesday.....aaaaand:


So I used Essie's Clambake as my base colour & I created a bow shape out of pink diamantes on my accent fingers

I then finished off with No 7's Glitter Top Coat on the rest of my nails




So what do you think?! If you joined in with Pink Wednesdays, leave me a link to your post as I'd love to see it! :)
