Amelia Lily Topshop boots

We all know that Topshop boots tend to be beautiful. We also all know they tend to be on the expensive side. However a good mood, an hour to kill and one staff card later ends up with these: the Amelia Lily boots.

NOTD: Revlon Nail Enamel in Rich

Doing my usual lunchtime wandering around Boots, I remembered I needed some new mascara. After hearing about everyone loving the Lash Potion I wanted to get some, but have a weird thing about spending more than £7-8 on high street mascara. Then I saw Revlon had a 2 for £10 offer on (including the £9.99 Lash Potion) meaning I could buy something else for a PENNY! And I spotted this.

Urban Decay glide on shadow dupe!

Is it weird to feel this proud of finding your very own dupe?! (Especially when it wasn't actually very difficult). Either way a few weeks back I purchased the smaller sizes of Urban Decay's famous Glide On Eyeshadow sticks, in Juju and Rehab - then yesterday found Rehab's twin in Boots!

Leeds festival!

So in case you've noticed my absence, I've been at Leeds festival for the past few days! I had such a brilliant time (even though it absolutely poured with rain and created the biggest mud bath I have ever seen). However I am back now and may have already bought some products that I've been wanting for ages, and will be back to posting as usual soon. I just thought some of you may want to see a few pictures from my weekend!

Biffy Clyro fire show!

My month in pictures: August

I always love having a nosy inside the more personal side of people's lives so I thought I'd show you a bit of mine - some pictures I've taken whilst out and about in August. Also seeing as I still haven't got my camera back from my dad this is a bit of a cheat post!

My cheap festival checklist!

This time next week I'll be in Leeds, for the very well known Leeds & Reading festival! I'm really excited as this is the first festival I've been to since 2010, and I haven't had a holiday this year so I'm using it as a little getaway! We all know what the conditions of festivals are like and I've been keeping an eye out for any little things I can take with me to make life generally a bit easier.

Rescue oil - my new holy grail?

Let's all be honest with eachother - there is nothing we want more than a miracle product that works the first time you use it, every time you use it. And of course, we spend way too much money trying to find these rare gems. I've just stumbled across one - and I thought I'd be lovely enough to share it with you. :)

NOTD: Essie 'Maximillian Strasse Her'

Still being sans DSLR, I thought I'd give you all a little nail update. Lame sounding, I know, but - revelation - I've had nail polish on for over 24 hours without chipping. For me, this is a bloody miracle.

Dorothy Perkins wishlist!

You may or may not know that I currently work at Dorothy Perkins. Now if you had asked me a few years ago if I ever liked anything from there you would have got a big fat no from me - isn't DP an old ladies shop?! Well no, it isn't anymore - they actually do some amazing pieces at prices much lower than Topshop but with the same great quality and design. Here are some of my picks from the website!

NOTD: Barry M Passionfruit

My lovely dad and his fiance are off to see family in Ireland this week for a little getaway, and being the nice daughter I am said he could take my DSLR! Sadly I've been a bit unprepared and didn't take any 'proper' photos to post up in the next two weeks! So I thought I'd do some posts where the quality of picture doesn't have to be outstanding. Sorry!

Manchester haul!

So I've been away for a few days enjoying city life in Manchester! I'm planning to move there in a month or two as it's one of my favourite places to be, so me and my boyfriend have been trying to go up for a day or two every so often to get a good feel or the place and know it a bit more. I wasn't actually planning on spending much money this time, but the Arndale centre got the better of me!
