M&S Summer Preview 2015

Marks and Spencer is a place I like to venture into for their shoes, handbags and the occasional 2 salads for £3 deal, with the clothes tending to be a little, shall we say, frumpy. That is not to say that I've never purchased any clothes from there before, they do have some amazing pieces but it is clear that they have an older demographic for their target audience. 

M&S have now unveiled their summer collection which has a real 70's vibe which is a trend seen on the catwalk from the likes of House of Holland, Tommy Hilfiger and Prada. There are some stunning dresses and I think I need the pink trousers to add a pop of colour to my winter wardrobe but sadly this is only a preview the collection will be in store and online in February 2015. 


So when you pop in for a bag of Percy Pig sweets go have a little browse of the rails, you may be surprised!

Caseapp Ipad Case + Giveaway


Caseapp contacted me recently to see if I wanted to create my own case. I decided to treat myself to a new ipad case and opted for a 'No Face' image.



The quality of the print is so much better than I had hoped. It clips to the side of the ipad perfectly and is really lightweight so it's not going to make your handbag any heavier! The delivery was super speedy too which is always a plus. You can play around on the website and upload your own photos to create your ideal phone case or ipad cover, it's a great way to personalise your technology!

Caseapp have kindly offer you ladies and gentlemen the chance to create your own case. The winner will be sent a unique code to use online.



It is coming up to Christmas now so even if you don't have an ipad or one of the handsets required you could create the perfect Christmas gift!!

Bargain Beauty Basics: MUA


Recently I have been lacking in funds and of course I ran out of most of my make up at the same time, inevitable. So I decided to try out some more MUA products as the blusher is one of my favourites. So I managed to get foundation, powder and mascara for £6! I've been using them for two weeks now so I thought I would take the opportunity to let you guys know what I think should you find yourself needing make up on a budget!


I was pleasantly surprised by the Matte Perfect Foundation which I used in 'Fair'. It has a better coverage than the Rimmel + Sleek foundations I had previously been using. It does last a whole day, though it does have more of a dewy look than a matte look. The main disadvantage to this product is that there seems to be only 3 shades available so there it's unlikely that you will find an exact match. 

The Pressed Powder has the same limitation in that it only has 4 shades available, I used shade 1 so the lightest shade but it is a touch darker than my usual Collection Powder. In terms of coverage it is just as good as any other powder I have used and as long lasting. So if there is a shade for you I'd recommend trying it out, even if you just need a spare whilst out and about. 

The Mosaic blush is something that I love and is a permanent piece in my makeup bag. It has a shimmer to it which gives a similar look to using highlighter on the cheekbone. I don't use alot but just enough to add a bit of colour and shimmer to my cheekbones. At just £2.50 I can't think of a reason you shouldn't try it out!


The Lash Boom mascara I found to be quite clumpy to begin with, after a few uses the clumps seemed to go. The wand is a little difficuly to use as it bends at the end so I have had many eyelid meets mascara issues. It does last most of the day and held out in the rain last week but it isn't anything special so I wouldn't really recommend it becuase I know for just a few pounds extra you can get a much better quality mascara from the likes of Rimmel London or Max Factor.


Overall I am pretty impressed with the quality of the products for the price but I will be going back to some of my usual products come pay day. The foundation and blusher will be here to stay for a little while longer though.

Let me know what you think to any MUA products! Or if you'd like to see any other beauty reviews from a beauty novice

Shopping New In - Autumn Winter 2014

So I've been browsing online, possibly alot more lately due to a lack of funds meaning no accidental purchases! But I always spend so much time looking at ASOS and Topshop new in sections that I wanted to give myself a break. To aid your online browsing fun (or procrastination) I have selected some of my favourites from 'New In' sections of a number of store which I may not normally spend alot of time lookin on.

Simply click the arrows to browse and click the products to find them online.


Miss Selfridge




I have a love hate "meh" relationship with Miss Selfridge, and I've been trying to figure out what it is. And I am happy to say that I think I have finally figured out why sometimes I love the place and others I'm neither here nor there. I have come to realise that Miss Selfridges Autumn Winter pieces are beautiful making their Spring Summer items pale to insignificance. 



Missguided




I do adore Missguided, I have a few bralets that I have worn to death and I have been in heaven at their Press Days but for some reason I don't buy all that much from there. I am however completly and utterly in love with the brocade print trouser and crop top set - santa list maybe! 


George Asda




George at Asda I find is rather underrated! They do some lovely trousers and printed smock dresses.


Fashion Union





I have some knitwear from Fashion Union which I absolutely live in, they have some beautiful coats and shoes in right now!

Which shops do you like to check out when your feeling a little overloaded by your faves?

Bold Colours And A Fluffy Collar

Coat - Topshop
Scarf - Select
Tee - See by Chloe
Trousers - New Look
Shoes - ASOS


Bold colours are the perfect way for brighten up otherwise basic autumn outfits. I am totally in love with the fluffy collars from Select right now (they were my sale purchase from two weeks ago so worth checking in store if you like them!)
