I wanted to tell you all what I have been buying recently. I am trying to not buy anything else this month as I am saving for a new car but I have treated myself to a few new things... :-)
I was looking for a lovely deep plum or purple lipstick and spent some time in boots trying out lots. My hand was literally covered by the time I had finished. In the end I found the perfect shade by L'oreal. It has a slight sparkle - perfect for this time of year!
I was so sick of wearing the same shades of eyeshadow and was desperate to get some new winter textures and colours. I have always loved Bourjois eyeshadow since I first started buying make up and they just happen to have a whole host of gorgeous colours. I decided on 6 and I love them!
|Only 5 here as I missed one out!|
I love the glitter in the purple. It is still a deep colour, unlike a lot of glittery eyeshadows, and the glitter is quite subtle. The green is amazing, I wear it as liner and it stays put all day. Such a beautiful shade.
They are also fab because they have a mirror in the lid so perfect for quick touch ups!
And they are buy 1 get 2nd half price in Superdrug!
Clothes and Shoes
I have been looking for a flat pair of over the knee boots. I think they look fab with coated jeans, really flattering.
But I came across these absolutely amazing Camilla Skovguard boots and fell in love with them. They are not flat but wedges so they are still quite casual.
I think the shade is also quite casual yet classic. The suede is just divine.
I simply adore them and they are quite comfortable.
I was also desperate for some new jumpers. I always think I have loads so I don't tend to buy them when I see them but I actually didn't have many that I could comfortably wear under leather jackets.
So I picked up these beauties...
|Deep Green Polo Neck, Crimson asymmetric zip back jumper, burgundy v-neck|
|Current Elliott Combat | Mother Black Glimmer | J Brand Maverick Wine|
I also got some new trousers to add to my winter wardrobe. Of course I had to get a pair of the coated glimmer jeans by Mother. I have had my eye on these for a few months and am delighted to finally have them. These give quite a lot so I got them in a smaller size than usual and they have stretched quite a bit already.
Another pair of trousers I have picked up this month are the delightful Maverick's in vintage wine by J Brand. These jeans are huge with celebs and I can see why, they are lovely. Again the colour is a deep rich winter tone which I adore. I like the fit of the Maverick and think they are really flattering. They are quite short in length for me but I wear boots over the top so you can't tell and they are soooo comfortable.
I also got the Current Elliot Combat trousers which are super comfortable and a nice length. They come up really big so I got a size 24. I have worn them twice and they haven't given much and really kept their tight stretch. They look great with little leopard print ballet flats and a cream knitted jumper. So cosy and autumnal!!
For next month I have my eye on some new fur, a Simeon Farrar Tartan Shawl and some more coated jeans.
