This is what I wore out for my flatmate's birthday on Friday evening. We went to Chiquito in Leicester Square where both the food and service were brilliant: we all fell slightly in love with our babe of a waiter Colin. ♥

I initially despised this top when I first saw it on the Topshop website due to the 'cut out' section being in, what I'd deem to be, the most unflattering place possible. However the length of the sleeves combined with the cut out creates a really flattering silhouette and everyone (including my Mother, who popped down to visit me this weekend) loved it. My other flat mate and I got probably a bit too overdressed for the pretty casual restaurant as we've not all been out together in a ridiculous amount of time.

My make up was inspired by Pixi2woo's Beyonce Countdown Make up Tutorial - I had actually applied my usual evening make-up before I decided to attempt this and was subsequently forced to use the yellow eyeshaddow in more of a > < shape instead. I will definitely be re-attempting this as I received so many compliments and felt that the shaddow made my eyes look significantly less tired. What do you think?

I'm afraid I'm the worst blogger as I don't seem to have the time to blog regularly and although I'd love to it just seems impossible. You're going to have to bear with me as at the start of April I spent a lot of time at home which was so lovely and needed as I'd not managed to visit properly since Christmas. However I enjoyed relaxing a bit too much and subsequently have three assignments left to do: my own fault - but I work fantastically under pressure so it'll be fine! In addition to this work load I have a two week internship which commences tomorrow and actual job. I will therefore be working non stop over these next two weeks.

However I absolutely love blogging, so if you see any posts on here during the next two weeks it'll mean I'm doing marvellously with my work and rewarding myself - wish me luck!! Everyone I speak to seems to be cramming assignments and revision in at the moment - so if you are too I wish you lots of luck with everything!

(which is why the quality is horrendous - sorry!)

I spent today assisting at Motel HQ with my lovely friend Lauryn, whilst on our lunch break I saw a post from Selfridges on my facebook timeline which we both got terribly excited about.
It has been a year since Dior opened the world's first Maison de Parfums at Selfridges Oxford Street and in order to celebrate this, from April 9th - 22nd Dior has invited everyone to discover their signature fragrance through an expert fragrance consultation. We were slightly swayed by the mention of "a complimentary glass of champagne and walk away with a luxury surprise treat" and headed down to Selfriges. This consultation is usually by appointment only (phone 02073183942 to book your appointment) but fortunately for Lauryn and I there had been a cancellation.

We sat down with a really lovely fragrance expert who quizzed us on our fragrance preferences (intense or fresh) our personalities (outgoing or discreet) utilising our answers to generate three perfumes from the extensive and iconic Dior collection. My favourite of the three selected for me was Dior Addict 2 - a fragrance I've never actually ever considered or tried. I was extremely impressed with it's notes of citrus and delicate freesia and grenadine with a subtle musk dry down. It's very subtly girly and a surprisingly reasonable price - right up my street!

Lauryn was recommended a more intense fragrance, New Look, from Dior's Privee collection - which retails at £125 for 125ml.

We were both given two samples of our selected fragrances and enjoyed the lovely champagne we were given. I highly recommend taking a trip down - but would advise booking an appointment as we were extremely lucky! If you do go please let me know how you get on :)


All Saints Agnes Dress*

Hihihi just a little lovey dress post...

This dress perfectly epitomises All Saints' classic style: a combination of flattering heavy draping and military inspired features. The herringbone tie at the back is so lovely and when its tied into a cute bow it totally juxtaposes the rusty metal rivets below. The concealed popper placket at the front and on the inner sleeves is interesting but the complementary fit compensates for this minor inconvenience - not forgetting the beautiful bow which literally wraps you up.

I love, love, love it. It's definitely my favourite All Saints dress (excluding the simply extraordinarily beautiful Heather Maxi dress) of the S/S 2012 collection. What's yours?


Shu Uemura - Rouge Unlimited, Supreme Shine 520: £20.

I've been searching for the perfect 'my lips but better' lipstick and accidentally stumbled across this one on my lunch break last week. I absolutely love, love, love it! I religiously watch Tanya Burr's youtube video's and in her vlogs she has the most perfectly natural lipstick/gloss on I just felt compelled to find one which made my lips look half as pretty.

On the website it's described as a 'metallic golden orange' which I don't personally think is a very accurate description, as it's much more of a pink shade than an orange one when applied. Although it does appear to be an almost coral shade in the product photo above, it doesn't apply to mine or my sister's lips in a remotely orange shade and instead enhances our natural, almost muted pink, lip colouring. The lipstick is enriched with ultra shine oil and Shu Uemura's signature hybrid pigment enabling a smooth and vibrant shine to be achieved whilst remained understated.

Shu Uemura is quickly becoming one of my absolute favourite high end brands I've been religiously using one of their cleansing oils after recieving a sample and it's literally marvellous! I also absolutely love their packaging, it's so alternative and fresh in comparison to my MAC and Chanel lipsticks which look so dark and boring in my glossybox storage box.

Do you use Shu Uemura products? If so which would you recommend? Or which products would you consider using?

Thought I'd share ther UM-AZING bargains my boyfriend and I picked up at the Jack Wills Sample Sale. We completely spoiled my little sister, who kindly modeled her new wardrobe for this post. What do you think to the garments we purchased?

I've come back home and both my younger siblings have had their rooms redecorated. Lucy's is so colorful and looks amazing as a background for these photographs. My Mum approved all these photos for the blog and we're now debating whether to submit a few of the photos to a local modelling competition as she's such a beauty!

Also, I can't actually put into words how lost I'm going to be without Picnik when it closes in 10 days - It's literally fundamental to my blog as without the auto-fix feature I'd have oddly colored images. If you know of any websites which are similar or better PLEASE let me know!
