Falling for the Flat’s

In the last few weeks I have been lusting over loads of flat shoes and wishing my bank balance was way bigger so I could indulge in them all. I have always been a ballet pump kind of girl in the past, but in the last 12 months I myself have embraced the flat shoe much, much more and I thought I would select my favourite flats and share them with you lovely lot!

Top left – Asos Marshall Flat Shoes – These gorgeous red shoes are on sale currently on the ASOS website and retail for £20.00 (What a bargain?!) These would be a brilliant staple to any girl’s wardrobe and add an injection of colour to all outfits.

Top Middle – Topshop Kink Loafers – I look for tan loafers and these beauties shout at me. They are on sale on the Topshop website for £45.00 and would look fab for a smart look and with a tartan skirt and black tights.

Top right – Serpent croc-effect slippers – Another bargain pair of shoes from Topshop on sale for £26.00. I am in absolute shoe heaven for these and never thought I would love a white pair of shoes until i saw these!

Middle Left – Laker Loafers – On sale for £32.00 on the Topshop website and another pair that caught my eye whilst browsing the site. I love that the sole has that wood effect and the fringe detail is lovely.

Bottom Left – ASOS Light Show cut out flat shoes – A fabulous pair of shoes on sale for £25.00! and don’t you just love the cut out strap detail? I think they are amazing and definitely have them added to my want list!

Main picture – ASOS Mozzer Loafers – I love the detail on this pair of shoes on the ASOS site currently for £25.00. The gold emblem catches your eye without being too overbearing on the shoe and I can’t wait to purchase a pair of these.

All the prices I have quoted were current on 20/01/2015 when I wrote this post. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my lovely want list and I will post again when I have these in my wardrobe to share with you.

My Current Skin Heroes

Happy Sunday everyone!

Although the weather has made several attempts to give us snow, I have had a lovely chilled out day and thought I would post about my current skin heroes. I have crazy skin for a 24 year old and sometimes wake up with skin problems similar to my 16 year old self had! Nightmare I know! Because my skin can sometimes be Oily, Spotty, Dry and Blotchy, I have to be really careful with the products I use. Don’t get me wrong though, I will always try a new product out and test the water but I will know if it’s good or not after about 24 hours. So here are my current heroes:-

My go to product for removing my make up is Loreal Micellar water. It’s great for dissolving the makeup without being too harsh and leaves my skin still feeling soft and fresh.

I then use a cocoa butter moisturiser to soften my skin some more. My current product is from Wilkinsons and was recommended by my Mum when I was having some severe spotty days. I can hand on my heart say that its fab and proves you should trust your mum, she knows what she’s talking about.

The Superdug CC cream was a find one evening after leaving work and as you can see I use a light shade. This is due to the fact that I am soooo pale and nicknamed Casper by my family. This one is under £5 and I find it gives great coverage for days when I just want a light cover and can’t be doing with applying the full face.

Lastly I use Sudocrem for on the spot treatment to reduce redness on a spot that just magically appears. (Spot’s are great like that aren’t they?!)I normally dab a spot on overnight and it helps for applying makeup in the morning.

All the items above cost less than £5 and I will buy them time and time again. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my post and comment below with your skin care heroes so I can check them out.

Thanks

What have I been up to?

I have been jotting down any ideas I have for my blog in my notebook I purchased especially for that reason after Christmas, and 1 idea that I had was to blog about my week and make it a regular post. As it’s been quite a busy week and flown really quickly, I thought I would share what I have been doing and include some photos.

Most of the week I have been at work and time has gone sooooo fast! I have been really busy taking on extra responsibilities and obviously took up more time than originally planned (of course it did, when do things ever go to plan).

Mid-week it was my lovely mum’s birthday and my brother and I purchased her favourite perfume from Elizabeth Arden, 5th Avenue. We also took her out for dinner and let her choose somewhere and ended up going to the Hungry Horse, Riverside Farm in York. Th meal was lovely and as it was mid-week it was rather quiet as well. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of my meal as I was super hungry and just tucked in.

Today(Friday) I have had the day off and do so every week so its my opportunity to get stuff done. It was half that kind of day as Mum and I drove to Harrogate and visited good old Primark. York is currently unblessed and does not have 1 but here’s hoping that changes in the future. I didn’t go overboard as a tiny voice in my mind kindly reminds me all the time that I am trying to buy a home. I purchased a Game of Thrones T-shirt (amazing right?), a Marvel Travel mug for my tea at work as it constantly goes cold because I forget, a pack of 3 tights and a lovely tan/camel short sleeved cardigan with slits at the side.

After that we drove my brother to the train station as he is off to New Zealand for 2 weeks to visit our Auntie. Needless to say he has been really excited but he will spend roughly the next 27 hours travelling. He’s got lots of activities planned and is going to try and get Bob and I an All Blacks shirt each for the match later in the year.

As you can see, quite a busy day/week but it’s been fab and I finished my day by buying myself an extra large pick & mix :D:D:D

Hope you enjoyed reading
