Hi loves! I have been finding some bargains online recently and although I won't bother showing you the items that have sold out I must share with you this fantastic lace maxi skirt that I picked up.

I am between 5ft 2/3" with very pale skin. I hate wearing skirts without tights, but tights give me a belly ache (IBS issues) and I am not a massive fan of fake tan. I thought I would give this problem solver skirt a try in the shades black and cream. 

I love the length. It falls just above the floor with some chunky shoes that I ordered from E5P (no longer available, sorry).

I get the illusion of showing some leg without actually having to do so and I can walk in comfort. 

The underlay skirt is a great length. Because I loved this piece so much I had to order it in coral too. 

I am usually a size 10 sometimes 12 so the medium (10/12) fits me perfectly. 

I think it will work great with fitted tops at night and slouchy jumpers half tucked in for a more casual day look.

Let me know what you think of this bargain in the comments below. There is only a size medium left in the black so hurry if you want it now!

Hi lovelies. I have put together a great outfit from the partywear selection at Joe Browns which I am hoping will give you some inspiration this festive season.

This rich blue shade with beautifully embroidered pale gold detailing is perfect for dinner, drinks and dancing too. The skirt shows the perfect amount of leg for modern modesty while the off the shoulder styling offers a little sexiness.

I love pairing feminine dresses with ankle bootees and these velvet embossed ones have amazing style. They are a great height for dancing and will save you painting your toenails!

Why not go all out and add more sparkle with this limited edition hand-embellished sequin and beaded shrug.

This is a perfect size for those essentials ladies. Pretty lace and a charming bow are the perfect combination to accessorise this outfit. The chain is concealable too.

Hey lovelies. I popped to Primark recently and wanted to share with you my basic pieces including some winter comforts.


I got these in a size up for a slightly oversized casual look. They are so soft and such a bargain price that I will definitely be going back for more colours.


There were so many colours and designs to choose from, but I love the ones I chose. There are 2 pairs in each pack. I wear these instead of regular slippers and some of my old ones definitely need throwing out.


I love the London theme of this shopper bag, especially the COR BLIMEY! banners. It's a great size and comes with the little pouch shown above.

Hi everyone and welcome to today's post. I was recently asked if I would like to try out another product from the Eucerin AQUAporin range and give my thoughts. I have dry skin and asked to try out the Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin. It wasn't until a few days after I started using the product that I realised I had been sent the one for normal to combination skin, but I will still give you my thoughts on how the product worked for me.


Provides intense 24 hour hydration for refreshed, supple, smooth and radiant skin.

My thoughts:

I have enjoyed applying this moisturiser. It has a lovely silky feel that melts easily into the skin. It does add some radiance and my skin certainly does feel supple after application.

However, I do feel that my make-up seems to not last as well and goes a bit patchy throughout the day where it is drying up. My skin does become a lot drier in winter and as this product is not exactly suited to my skin type I can not be too critical.

So my final thought can only be to say that this product was not meant for my skin type and so that is why it could not deliver 100%.

If you have tried any of the Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE moisturisers leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Hi lovelies. I am here today to talk about four Nivea Q10 products that were sent to me to try. I thought why not give you my thoughts on them so here they are :)

Smooths and tones targeted areas such as the thighs, buttocks and belly. Results should be seen in 10 days. Suitable for all skin types.

This is a lovely lightweight gel serum which seems to have fine shimmer particles for a nice sheen on the skin making it look more toned.

Improves skins firmness in 2 weeks leaving it feeling more energised, nourished and protected from drying out.

This has a gorgeous creamy scent and sinks into the skin really well.

Firms the skin in 2 weeks. Energises instantly and reduces the appearance of cellulite even without extra massage in 3 weeks. Suitable for all skin types. Apply to thighs, buttocks and belly without the need for extra massage.

This is a blue gel-cream that seems water based with an unusual scent.

Firms in 2 weeks while intensively moisturising the skin. Nourishing and suitable for stretchmarks. Suitable for all skin types.

Sinks in nicely without being greasy, but the next day it felt like I had a layer of matte soft emollient on my skin which I didn't really like. It says it is suitable for stretchmarks, but does not say it helps them to fade or anything.

Overall I have loved trying out all of these products except the body oil simply because I don't like the product texture that is left on my skin, but others may love it.

All the other products sank into my skin pretty quickly making it feel soft, supple and nourished. I don't seem to have noticed any real difference in the cellulite I have and I haven't become a toned goddess in the last few weeks, but my skin does feel smoother. I love the feel of the cellulite and moisturiser products when I apply them and I can notice a difference in my skin texture. As mentioned above the cellulite serum is great with the sheen it gives for leaner looking limbs.

I am undecided on the powers of these products. I can be a bit lazy when it comes to body moisturising and so I missed a day or two here and there which may/may not have made a difference. However I will continue to use the 3 products that I love because I do feel more body confident when I use them.

Why not share your thoughts on Nivea Q10 products you have tried in the comments below.

Hi loves! I hope your weekend was fantastic. I caught up with a friend of mine which was lovely. Retail therapy always adds to the joy so here is Primark haul for you :)


My purse was looking a little shabby. I have been using it for years. This new addition I am in love with. It's more of a taupe pink shade than it is showing up in this photo. It has so many compartments perfect for all my bits and bobs.


My last handbag broke. I like a large one for every day use with just one compartment so I can chuck things in. Black is my preference for every day. The handle means that the bag hangs at a really nice level (not to high or low). The fringe detail gives any outfit interest, but it's still wearable with so many things.


These were an amazing bargain. I think they look great with or without the belt. I have wanted this sort of style top for a while in crisp white, but I couldn't resist this amazing rust shade too. The sweetheart neckline is modest with the lace detailing around the collar. Because these can be belted I think they are great for girls like me with a little extra on top as usually this floaty style makes me look bigger than I am. I would usually buy a size 10 and sometimes as 12 on top, but I got these in a 6 and they are perfect.

So that's my Primark haul guys. If you would like a 'what's in my handbag' style post let me know in the comments below.

Hi lovelies. I have a wee home haul for you today. It's just one item, but I picked it up in four colours, eek!

These 100% cotton bath mats from BHS are so soft. You can also pick up the pedestal mats and towels to match if you like. They are 50 x 80cm. The shades I have L-R are bright green, turquoise, light grey and electric blue. I already have ones like this in white and mid grey which is why I didn't get those. These also come in gorgeous bold shades of bright orange, bright yellow and bright pink.

Our bathroom is a very neutral slate grey, beige and cream so I thought these would add a bit of interest.

Share your ideas below for easy ways to style your bathroom.

Love to you all

Hi sweeties. I have been testing out this Eucerin eye care product which was sent on to me for review purposes so here are my thoughts.

The claims of this eye contour moisturiser are that it adds hydration to give smooth, supple and radiant skin while reducing puffiness and dark circles as well as fine lines. Compatible with sensitive skin and suitable for contact lens wearers.

So does it work?

I found this to be very hydrating keeping puffiness and dark circles at bay. I do not however suffer too often with dark circles though.

I applied this morning and night after my face moisturiser. It works fine under make-up. 

The metal applicator that the product is squeezed through at the end of the tube feels very cooling on the skin which I think aids in reducing puffiness. I do find that it can be a little hard to control the amount of product that comes out so I tend to squeeze a bit out before pressing it onto my skin and smoothing under the eyes. I end up using my finger to smooth excess product into my skin and to wipe the metal part of the tube as it does end up with cream around it.

I think the metal part of the tube is an innovative design, but because it gets a bit messy I guess that is the only negative I can find.

All in all a nice eye cream, but it's not wowed me as much as I had hoped.

Let me know your favourite eye creams in the comments below with your thoughts on this type of design.

Hey gorgeous people. I did a bit of shopping again, oops! On Saturday I had a 'me day'. I had my fave sandwich (cheese & onion) sat on a bench then wondered off into H&M where I picked up one item featured here. Then I went to Costa for some tiffin and a cappuccino. OMG heaven!

I was in and out of a few shops, but the one that I spent the rest of my pennies in was Primark.


I have been after a shirt dress for some time, but I find that they are too short (even for short girls like me) or just too expensive. I can not see any obvious signs that this is a nightshirt and so I am going to wear it as a dress or long top with leggings.


I thought I would get shades different from just black all the time, but that are still quite neutral. Cheap as chips for 5 pairs!


I love the coral and printed styles. I am hanging on to summer as long as I can.


I like having a straw as I find it helps me to drink more throughout the day. I am a firm believer in water being one of the best things for our bodies.


I have not tried this style of earring yet. These are great also because you can just wear the silver balls if you want to.


I don't usually wear matching jewellery, but I had to pick this up too because I think it's great to team with simple tops for a little glisten to catch the eye.


There was only an XS and lots of MED left which looked too big so I took a chance and it fits perfectly. Such a great shade to perk up any day and bring out the blue in my eyes.


I think I will wear this as a PJ top, but still isn't it great. I know not everyone is a Minions fan, but they just make me happy :)

P.S. LOVE LIP LINER CRAYONS (L-R: 01, 02, 03 & 09) - £1 EACH

I have read good things about these lip liners from Primark and although I don't use lip liner that much I am hoping these will change that.


I want to try this a face highlight rather than a foundation, but I may also use it as a concealer. It does also come in shades medium and dark, but I prefer an ash tone to contour with so I didn't get one of those.


I wanted some casual sweaters that were easy to take on and off so these are perfect. The black is a staple shade and the burgundy which seems to be very popular at the moment is very much an autumnal shade. The oatmeal adds freshness to an outfit without being as bold and crisp as white. These feel so soft and have handy side pockets. They also come in many colours.

So that's everything lovelies. I hope you find something here you like. Share your Primark finds also in the comments below.

Love to you all

Hi lovelies. I have been throwing away a few jumpers recently that have gone a bit bobbly or have holes in so I needed to replace them. I found these bargain beauties at EVERYTHING 5 POUNDS.

They are really easy to wear no brainer pieces to keep you warm, but looking chic throughout the A/W season.

I picked them up in 5 shades, but there are only the shades black, pink and purple left so hurry if you want them too.

Plus there is free UK standard delivery at the moment if you buy 5 or more items!

Have you picked up any bargain A/W pieces yet? Let me know your fabulous finds in the comments below.
