The other week a very good friend of mine had her 16th birthday party, (Okay so this is a bit belated, but the outfits cute)
I'd been seeing these daisy print skater skirts for a very long time on places like tumblr and wheretogetit and I reaaally wanted one because it's such a lovely pattern and it looks so flattering on all these girls I've seen so when I was looking in H&M and saw one I was very excited, especially since I had 25% off. 
I paired it with a simple tank top from primary, my topshop leather jacket, Chelsea boot high heel shoes and a statement flower necklace from forever 21.

Hair Extentions

It's quite a common misconception that every one who wears hair Extentions looks cheap and tatty and I have to say I disagree, not all girls do look tatty and cheap and by wearing hair Extentions they're probably trying to achieve the exact opposite look and you will look classy and worth a million pounds if you just make sure you do as follows: 

- when buying hair extentions, never but more than 8" longer than your natural hair
- make sure the colour is an exact match or could at least pass for 'I got a lot of sun' 
- make sure you buy enough clips to match the thinkness of your own hair, it's no use if your natural hair is lovely and think and you have a couple of this extensions poking out the bottom
- quality over price always, spending just that little bit more could make them go a lot further, I've had mine for 8 months and they're still like new
- make sure you take care of them, brush and wash like normal hair or the ends will go ratty and you'll look like you have dreads, I mean unless you want dreads then that's cool too
- check if you can style with heat, if you can't 1) they're probably no good and 2) they won't exactly match what your hairs doing and you'll look a bit odd. 

I wear hair Extentions and most if the time people don't notice I'm wearing them, they'll say my hair looks nice or it looks longer but that's it, let it be your secret, keep them guessing.



P.S. I am the laziest person I know, and if I can look after them, so can you

Recent Purchases

Reccently I've made quite a few purchases that I'm really quite excited about ~


I wrote a review on the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine nail paint in 'green berry' the other day and I loved it so much I bought another in the colour 'watermelon' which is like the deep green that I think is stunning. I'll be sure to try it out and post about it ASAP but with school and GCSES, probably won't be for a while.

I also bought the Barry M touch of magic lipstick, it's green in the tube but turns pink and the natural alkali level of your lips will determine how pale or rich the shade of pink will be to most flatter your look, so I can't wait to try that, also because it was 3 for 2 on Barry M at super drug I got the Gelly Hi-Shine lips in a very bright red (not sure on the name, oops). 


Further more I got the Sleek i-Divine au naturel pallet which is good for just simple every day use. 


Another thing I was very excited about was the Jelly Belly airfreshioner, people who know me will know how much I love jelly belly products and on my I just can't help but spray it 24/7. 


The last thing is the Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner which I haven't had in like 3 years so when it was on offer I had to buy it and it smells so good I don't want to wash it off!

Barry M: Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

The other day my sister came home with a few things she bought in town, one of these was this: 


Quite reccently there has been a lot of hype about these nail varnishes and since she bought such a beautiful colour I thought I'd try it out. This is in the colour 'green berry' and it's light greeny turquoise colour so quite a springy fun colour and my gosh not even exaggerating I've had this nail varnish on for 8 days now and it's still not chipped.
As it's such a good colour for the season I thought a few Daisy's would go quite well with it.


** I did this using a cocktail stick and Barry M's white nail varnish (but you can use any nail varnish you want) - very easy to do and really cute.

Topshop Lipstick: Wicked - Review

Recently I bought a new lipstick from Topshop in the colour wicked which is like a darkish red with a subtle tint of purple. 
I'd wanted a lipstick in this shade for quite sometime and the fact it was called wicked attracted me even more (being one of my favourite musicals), I personally love this lipstick, it has an even, velvety finish and I found it quite moisturising. 5/5.
