Accessorize - £6.00
Take care x.
So here we go ill start with the Topshop items. I saw this top on Lollipop26 blog and I fell in love with it, it’s a really pretty summer top plus it’s smart enough for work or nights out.
It has a really gorgeous petal design around the collar and it’s a really nice light cream colour throughout. I really really love this top it’s now my favourite for the month, so thanks to Lollipop26 for posting it on her blog because I love it.
Topshop - £28.00
This dress I picked up for a doo that my mum is having to celibate her anniversary and my dad’s birthday and I have to say I’m really impressed, I was going for the prom style look but I really like this formal modern looking dress.
It’s a gorgeous dark blue colour with a thin black ribbon around the middle with a tiny flat bow in the centre. It has a straight style so it gives the effect of looking taller and skinnier which I think is always a bonus for me. Plus it was in the Kate moss section which is awesome. Although the price is a little pricey I defiantly think it’s worth it.
Topshop - £50.00
Next stop Jane Norman, id been after this top id seen a while back in there but I didn’t really want to pay £28.00 for it because I wasn’t sure it was worth it but like I said before about bargains I got one! It was in the sale for £11.00 and I just couldn’t say no.
I love the light material and the slight bagginess plus the length is great to wear with leggings. The Paris design is gorgeous and I really like the black and crème together.
Jane Norman - £11.00
After getting the really pretty blue dress from TopShop I realised I had to get matching blue shoes of course! And I happen to walk passed Peacocks and see this really bright but lovely pear of high heel shoes and knew straight away they would be perfect.
The colour was a gorgeous bright blue colour and a good large heel.
Peacocks - £15.00
So for my bargains I went into INNOVATIONS where they sell really cheap clothes that look just as good as the designer ones.
I saw this bow top in Quiz for £16.00 but they had it £4.00 cheaper so I thought I may as well pay less for something that looks exactly the same as the full prices one. I love the light material again and the length is perfect and I could even wear it as a dress. The bow is very in with the blues, reds and whites and I just love bows so it’s perfect.
INNOVATIONS - £12.00
I then found an Anker top and I really liked it because it was slightly thicker a more unusual and just completely different from anything I had ever had before so again I found a great barging.
INNOVATIONS - £6.00
So I’ve had a really good days shopping and I’ve come home with some really nice tops for summer as well as some gorgeous shoes for my mum’s doo, and like always I recommend all of these they defiantly are worth the money.
Take care x.

I would recommend ‘NonpareilBoutique.com’ as I have ordered from them and they were really fast the only thing was they don’t sell nude colours! So the lipsticks I ordered are no good for me. But at least you guys in the UK might be able to order some but for those of you in the USA or anywhere else in the world you can order straight off the NYX website.
I hope this helps some of you! Also if anyone knows where I can get ‘Circe’ or ‘Rea’ in there nude lipsticks I would be very grateful!
Take care x

This morning I received a rather nice package for the Body shop! I had ordered a product from the Body shop and instead of just getting the one product my very kind mother ordered me the other five products I wanted.
My package came with:
Vitamin E Face Mist - £6.85
Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist - £9.75
The Body Shop Foundation Brush - £11.25
Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub - £6.85
Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion - £7.80
Vitamin C Eye Reviver - £8.80
Vitamin E Face Mist description: ‘With panthenol to soften and rosewater to refresh. Close your eyes and spray on face. Excellent for setting make up.’ I would defiantly agree with the description, I find myself spraying this on all day as it feels so nice and refreshing. It does help to keep my make up on as well which is always a good thing! In terms of smell it doesn’t really have one but for this product I really don’t think it needs one. I really recommend this as Vitamin E is very good for you.
Deep sleep dreamy pillow and body mist description: ‘Spray onto body, pillow or sheets before bedtime. Night-time movement releases the natural fragrance.’ This was something I wanted to try as iv being having some sleeping problems, I haven’t actually tried this yet so I can’t comment on it but I will do a separate review another time for you.
The Body Shop Foundation Brush, there is no description for this as there is no need but I really wanted this as it is a cheaper solution to buying Mac brusher. Body shop brushes are extremely soft and last a very long time, they are just like Mac brushes just that little bit cheaper in fact when I was in Mac they even recommend these brushes. I do recommend getting one as they will last you a long time.
Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub description: ‘Intensely exfoliating volcanic rock to smooth and soften even the roughest of skin.’ I one 100% agree with that description it really does work I used the tiniest amount and you could honestly see the difference straight away. I do recommend this if you have dry feet or simply if you’re like me and you crave soft skin everywhere! It has an extremely strong peppermint smell so if you don’t like peppermint I wouldn’t recommend it but I happen to think it’s a rather nice smell.
Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion description: ‘Community trade cocoa butter and smoothing grape acids keep feet soft and smooth all day long, peppermint oil refreshes and revives.’ This lotion is very soft and feels so nice it really does last the whole day. Again it has a peppermint smell but not as strong, it leaves my feet feeling refreshed and smooth and again I do recommend this for those of you who have dry skin or just like nice smooth skin like me.
Vitamin C Eye Reviver description: ‘Brightening radiance boost.’ This was a product that I wanted to try so again I will be doing a separate review for you all on how I got on. Vitamin C is another good Vitamin for your skin, so any Vitamin E or C products are worth getting!
So I am very happy with everything I got and for the ones I have not yet tried I’m looking forward to trying them and telling you how I got on, but for the ones I do know and have used I honestly recommend them although there prices are a little high they will last you and do what you want them to do.

The description on the back says exactly what I would say:
‘This light, oil-free moisturiser helps to control shine and leaves skin feeling fresh.’
The formulation is really light which is a key thing for any shine free moisturisers and it gives a really nice texture and a nice fresh feeling all day. It really is the perfect moisturiser for oily skin on a hot or cold day and I really recommend it!
Because I found this product in my sister’s room I don’t actually know how much it would cost to buy at the body shop but if anyone is interested I can find out the price for you as my mum has started doing body shop parties again.
Take care x
