little leopards

shirt: Zara
skirt: Primark
belt: vintage
necklace: ASOS
ring: Primark
aviators: H&M
lips: MAC Watch Me Simmer
nails: Models Own Pink Punch

Oops, slept on my hair when it was a bit damp (I was obviously VERY tired as I only noticed all my pyjama buttons were done up wrong when I woke up this morning) so before anyone asks how I got my hair like this, there's your answer! Cue bird's nest and a generous amount of hair oil to calm it down a little!

Got this Zara shirt in the post last week. I love that it's still a bit sheer but covers you up a lot more than most of the shirts around right now. The stud detailing on the collar and cuffs is just gorgeous too. Over the moon with it and it's a lot cheaper than you would expect judging current high street prices - Topshop I'm looking at you. Also gone a little bit crazy lately on the collar necklaces front, so expect to see a few more in the near future.

Have listed a bunch of things on eBay, all ending Sunday night. If you ever see anyone using my pictures and it's not my username, obviously it's not me so don't be fooled! I really don't want people emailing me thinking I haven't sent them something, so till eBay knuckle down with their picture regulations I'm just going to have to keep saying this!

PS. If you haven't entered my giveaway for a Diana Mini & Flash it ends at midnight! Good luck!

glossybox april 2012

Caudalie Vinosourse SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum, Inika Cosmetics lip liner, Anyuuri body
wash, Figs & Rouge lip balm & Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands via GlossyBox*

This seems to be the most blogged about GlossyBox for a while, and for good reason. It's one of those boxes that doesn't really seem that exciting upon opening, but everything will come in handy and get used. So it's good value for money really which is better than just an initial ooh and aah, which is a good thing in my opinion. The April box is the "natural box", I love the themed boxes, I just think it makes getting them a bit more exciting!

I was expecting to hate the body wash as I don't like rose scented things, but this smells lovely! I'm looking forward to using it when I've got through the millions of bottles in my bathroom at the moment. The Caudalie serum is something I welcomed with open arms, I love the products I've tried by the brand so far and anything to help with dryness is a huge plus for me right now. The Yes! Nurse hand cream is actually really nice, it smells amazing (can't quite put my finger on the scent, but it's cakey) and sinks in to the skin very well. I love the (unnecessary) packaging it came in too! I haven't used the lip liner yet but I'm glad I got the nude colour as it can go underneath anything, and I have so many lip balms already that I'm probably going to save this as an extra little present for someone.

Overall I'm really pleased with this box, everything is going to get used which can't really be said for boxes I've had in the past. Always a good thing! What do you think of the April box?

weekend wishlist #044

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

001. Have wanted one of these for the longest time! They are rather expensive which is why I'm torn between getting a plain pink/blue/green one but then I'll probably get bored of the colour. Decisions decisions!

002. Saw this on Jen's blog and it seems like just the thing I need lately! My skin seems to dry out throughout the day and makes my foundation look a bit rubbish. So hopefully this will do the trick!

003. Really wish I had bought this last week when the 3 for 2 deal was still on at Boots. I picked it up a few times but it's really hard for me to find a concealer I like, but Kate's review has swayed me!

004. Heard a lot of lovely things about the matching foundation too, I have enough foundations as it is but I'm still curious! I love the rose gold pump too, I'm such a magpie.

005. Gem reminded me of this product the other day. I used to use it in school! The packaging isn't up to much but I remember really liking it so would like to try it again and see how it compares now.

006. Typical, make an order and the next day these come in! I've been after some plain thick band rings for a while, for outfits where a lot is going on but you still need a bit of jewellery to pull it together. I think these look really chic!

007. Spotted this on Meg's blog (lot of blogger influence this week, as ever!) and as I need all the help I can get with my under eye darkness I want to give this a go. Any eye cream recommendations?

008&9. I've never tried Topshop lipsticks before, but I spotted these shades on the new in section and they look lovely.

010. Another new shade, I have all the other cream blushes so it's only natural for me to bring them home a new sibling! I don't really have many pink blushes actually so I hope this is nice in the flesh!

What have you got your eye on lately? Would you recommend anything above or warn against it?

PS. Have already bought a couple of these.. oops! Will be posting about them hopefully next week!

katy perry for eylure

Katy Perry lashes for Eylure: from £5.95

At the beginning of the year a new Eylure joined forces with pop princess Katy Perry to create a quartet of beautiful new strip lashes. A couple of weeks ago I bought three of the styles, the fourth one called Sweetie Pie looked a little on the boring side for me - due to my lashes being quite long anyway they wouldn't have shown up that much! I absolutely love the packaging, it took me a good few days to actually open the boxes as they're so pretty!

Katy Perry for Eylure 'Oh My!'

This style is the most expensive of the bunch, priced at £6.95 so a pound more than all the others. The reason for this is that they're double layered, so you're essentially getting two pairs of lashes! I've never used this kind of lash before, but I think they'd be perfect for a night out. They felt a little bit like 'eBay lashes' where they were a little harder to bend, but that's just because it's two sets of lashes stuck together. Surprisingly comfortable on though!

Katy Perry for Eylure 'Cool Kitty'

I think these are quite similar to the Girls Aloud Sarah lashes, but easier to wear. They're less shiny and look more natural, as well as the 'spikes' being a bit softer. If I had to choose one pair from this collection it would probably be these ones! Really easy to wear and a a perfect mix (for me) between a natural and obvious false lash!

Katy Perry for Eylure 'Oh Honey!'

Nothing to do with the lashes but I wish the sticker/name was white lettering instead of black. I just think the collection would look nicer if they were all the same! That's just the graphic designer in me screaming out though I guess! Anyway, these ones reminded me of the Girls Aloud Nicola lashes (anyone spotting a pattern here?), only a little less fanned out on the outer corners which I prefer. You need to use some kind of black liner with these as it has one of those more natural strips with the white dots if that makes sense. Otherwise I think these look really nice on!

Overall I would recommend any of these lashes, as they're only slightly pricier than the usual Eylure offerings so if you like the normal collection you'll get on well with these. I find with most lash strips I need to cut them down a bit, so for these I snipped a tiny bit off each end so I could keep the original shape of them and have them fit my eye. Have you tried these lashes? What do you think? What's your favourite brand/style of false lashes?

diana mini & flash giveaway

Leopard Diana Mini & Flash: £99*

What with the whole fuss (totally deserved in my opinion!) over Instagram lately, the digital world is always trying to replicate the charm of old film photos. I love using disposable cameras, you never know what the photo is going to look like till it's printed and that's the element of surprise I love. That and the memories resurfacing if you've forgotten to get the film developed for a while! So when I was contacted by Lomography asking if I'd like to try a Diana Mini camera and give another away to one lucky reader, I couldn't resist! Sadly I haven't used mine yet, as it looks so pretty in its box and also because I haven't managed to buy any film for it yet. Oops!

For reference - and this is a great quality for a website I think - you can see what kind of look you'll be getting from this camera at the bottom of the product page. Another great thing about the site is that when you sign up to join the Lomography community via this link you get £10 worth of piggy points to spend on goodies in the online store!
