By the meaning of existence

Jumper River Island
Skirt Primark
Shirt ASOS
Rings Regal Rose

There's nothing I love more then wearing an oversized jumper and when I saw this in the window of my local River Island I knew I had to have it. I had a little cry to myself inside the store when I couldn't spot it so when I saw River Island had 20% off for students (oops) I just had to buy it... Plus it's black and white and those are clearly colours my wardrobe are lacking... ahem. 

You can't really see my skirt but its a gorgeous mint coloured leather skirt from Primark. It's super soft, fits like a dream and I think it only cost around £8... Which equals a pretty perfect skirt in my opinion. 

Here are my regular everyday rings from one of my all time favourite places to buy jewellery from; Regal Rose. They have such a variety of styles and at such great prices if you haven't already checked them out I would strongly recommend it... Especially if like me you're a secret Phoebe Buffay and cannot leave the house without rings on every finger.

Hope you're all okay.

You're a rising star

Barry M Greenberry
Topshop Rising Star

Everyone has heard of the Barry M Gelly nail polishes and if you haven't where have you been? In my opinion they are one of the best things to happen to the nail varnish world. High shine, great colour range, most are opaque in one coat (although I'm a bit OCD and still like to do two), really long lasting and better still only £3.99! What more could a girl want? Now Spring is creeping back again (hopefully for good this time) I am finding myself drawn towards my brighter shades. Barry M Greenberry is a beautiful turquoise shade that would suit any skin tone. This layered with this Topshop topcoat is my favourite spring combination right now. HOW PRETTY? The glitter just pops out against the turquoise and depending on the light it shines different colours. One thing however with this Topshop topcoat is the stars are a nightmare to get out. You really have to fish them out with the brush but to be honest I think it's totally worth it.

What are your favourite spring nail polishes?

Secrets I have held in my heart

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm - Elusive (205)

I know the Revlon colorburst lip products have been hyped about so much on blogs already but I think they are too good for me not to mention. I have quite a few of them but my favourite is this shade Elusive. The formula is a gorgeous matte finish but not overly drying like some matte lipsticks can be. I'm hands down a matte lips kinda girl but I do find sometimes a slightly glossier finish (MAC Cremesheen for example) works better for lighter colours but this formula is just incredible. This is the perfect pink for everyday wear especially if you're a girl who's not into a bold lip. I think it will flatter all skin tones and I cannot wait to wear it in the summer when I have a tan. You don't even need a mirror to apply it which always makes things a winner in my eyes.

Have you tried any of the Revlon lip balms?
