Newlook basic lusts..

Hi guys,
I'm having one of those super long boring days with nothing better to do than do some online browsing and I've made up an outfit with things that have been on my wishlist for a while.
These are all pretty basic items, but I like them :)

1. Black mini tube skirt - £7.99 2. Red peplum shell top - £8.99 3. Black glitter bow skinny waist belt -  £3.99

3 Items for £20.97 (minus shipping) Not bad at all! I doubt they'll be sat on a wish list for too long.
Paired with some tights and black heels/ wedges of some sort, you'd be away!

Have you been lusting after anything recently?

Empties #2

Everyone loves empties (If you don't, I for sure do!)

Again, nothing too exciting but this time I would only repurchase 3/4
  • VO5 Revive me daily 2 in 1 for 'normal hair':
                              - It smells amazing
                              - Lathers up a dream
                              - It can be bought pretty much anywhere.
      But I just prefer others so won't be repurchasing this any time soon.
  • The Body Shop - Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser:
                              - It's fragrance free
                              - It removes all of my make-up without irritating my eyes or skin
                              - Available in store or online at The Body Shop.
    (Not the best cleanser I'm sure, but It doesn't break me out or irritate my skin/eyes and have therefore re purchased 2 bottles to have 'in stock'.
  • Soap&Glory - Girlingo, Spray-on moisturising mist:
                              - Does what it says on the tin+ Makes life easier
                              - Smells like the generic 'Soap&Glory' scent
                              - It does leave a slight 'film' on the skin but does last all day.        
    As I said, It makes life that bit easier.. when you don't want to faf' with lotions or body butters.. give this a spray and your good to go.
  • Clairol Colourseal Conditioning Gloss (The conditioner that comes with hair dye to you and me):
                              - Super conditioning
                              - Smells kind of Coconut'y
                              - You can buy the smaller sizes without having to buy a box of hair dye!
    I personally think my hair looks nicer after the dye has kind of relaxed down, so I don't really use it as a 'colourseal conditioner' But I recently had some hair extensions put in and not even Aussie 3MM would condition them so I thought I'd give this a shot.. and without a doubt it's the best thing I ever did! :)

As always, if you have done a similar post.. link it down below..

Hi guys, 

So I finally gave in, a week after having been paid.. but I got a few essentials, few Xmas pressies and some freebies.. not a bad days work! :)

I will add prices upon request as there is a fair few things here.

Bottoms - £5 (each) Tops - £3 (each) + Slippers - £2.50

Again, essentials.. can't have too many sets of PJ's now.. and the slippers.. they were just so       freakin' fluffy! :D Although.. they are a little small.. but for £2.50 I'm just gunna go get another  pair (I had to take the tag off to try them on so can't return them *sad face*)

Eee, how CUTE! :D

Not so essential..

Reduced from £16 to £7..
I'm not sure about how it looks but, I added a little black skater skirt and It didn't look too bad so I think it's a keeper.. (I'm rubbish at returns)

Earrings (Claire's) - £5.50 Fake nails (Sainsbury's) - £7

I also recently made an order on Forever21, If you'd like to see what I got let me know and I'll be happy to take and add some more pics :)

Beauty Bloggers Tag

Beauty Bloggers Tag..

Naughty me hasn't blogged again in over a week.. 

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
It's not wavy, but nearing that.. 

2. What is your natural hair color?
Blonde, don't let the roots fool you!

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I dye it myself :) Much cheaper!

4. How often do you wash your hair?
I try to go for every other day, unless there's a special occasion.

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I more often then not have it the same, unless I'm at work then up it goes *thumbs down*

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
When I can be bothered, I do it myself.. Can't afford to go to a salon unfortunately.

7. How often to you change your nail polish?
I don't wear nail polish that often as work don't allow it so this question isn't really applicable to me..

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
I wear polish on my toes all year round!

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
About 10 minutes for every day, longer if I'm going somewhere nice 

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I collect it, as I don't really like to run out I have little stashes of each thing.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Only if I'm going somewhere special.

13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
Nope, only really for work and when I go out. I like to let my skin breathe and I'm too lazy to want to take a face of make up off at the end of the day.

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
I sometimes wear it if I'm alone, like after work. But more so with family.

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
It depends where I'm going, I won't leave without having curled my eyelashes and put mascara on.. But If a quick trip to Tesco is needed, I'll go without foundation. If I were going to town, it would be a different matter!

16. How many high end products do you have?
Not many, just a MAC Foundation and powder (which I don't actually use all that much anymore)

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
I try to do it atleast once a week (I should probably do it more often, but I'm too lazy!)

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
Again; It depends, If I'm going out for a meal or something.. I'd try and plan it the night before. Day to day, I'd decide as I was getting dressed!

19. How often do you change your handbag?
As soon as it breaks and needs replacing haha.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
On a work day I sadly have to get up at 5am, non working days, I aim for 8am atleast.. so I've had a decent lay in and don't get out of routine. + I try to go to sleep around 9/10pm..

21. How often & when do you workout?
As I recently joined the gym, I try go there once a week.. (I haven't been for 3 weeks and I'm going tomorrow..EEK!)

22. Left-handed or Right-handed?

23. How tall are you?
Around 5ft 3, ish.

24. Do you speak a foreign language?
I'd love to say I could fluently speak Spanish, but sadly I can't .. but I know enough to get me by in a Spanish speaking country.

25. How many pets do you have?
I have 4 cats (madness, I know)

26. How often are you on Blogger?
Again, I aim for once a week atleast.. but sometimes even fail that target (my bad)

27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?
Yes, I read and reply to all comments.

28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I most certainly do! Although, more often than not they are mental lists and I forget things until I see them in the shop (I should really learn to write stuff down!)

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
It's pretty much my username for everything, and there isn't much behind it really.. I just love simple things!

30. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
I try to use my friends iPhone(4) most of the time, failing that I use a Nikon D3100.

31. How often do you clean your house? (Daily, weekly, other)
As I still live at home, I only really clean my bedroom.. which I do quite often as sadly my boyfriend is a smoker and manages to get tobacco EVERYWHERE!  

32. What is your favorite color?
Pretty much any shade of pink!

33. What is your favorite beauty/fashion magazine?
I only really read magazines when I go on Holiday or I'm travelling.. + Then I just get what ever is there really haha.

34. Do you swear?
Too often :/

35. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm going to write a few my posts for future times when I get a little stuck, have some food! Then get myself an early night .. It's been a long day!

I tag anyone who reads this! Leave your links below!
