H by Henry Holland at Debenhams

Has anyone esle checked out the Henry Holland Collection at Debenhams?
I went to have a look as i'd seen it online and wanted to see it properly and have a grope of the clothes.

The things i was wanting to see the most weren't actually in store, thats the yellow floral dress and these 2 bits of jewellery.
However they did have this gorgeous body con skirt i was lusting after. Its gorgeous and i took a close up of the print and rouching, but sadly it looked awful on me! I think it would be gorgeous with one of the bodies from the collection or just a plain vest tucked in.
The long tees are fab, made from decent material and on me are long enough to be worn as a dress so i got the black one, modelled below!
Other bits that stood out to me are these cullottes, as they would be so gorgeous come summer.
This grey floral tee, which i'm contemplating buying. I'm thinking with leggings or jeggings.
This skirt which again has the fab rouching.
I''m also thinking about getting one of the coin purses as they are cute and will fit into small bits when i don't need my big purse.
Overall i'm really impressed with this range, its well priced and on trend and alot of it is mix and match. There are also some cute playsuits and footwear in the range too.
The only thing i was dissapointed in was the lack of stock in the bits i wanted to look at and also the section where it was didn't really grab my attention, i actually walked round twice looking for it. I think i was expecting it to be more in your face.

Mini MAC haul

I got my first fluidline!! I went for Blacktrack, even though i was tempted by some of the other colours. Can't wait to play with this. I'm not going to do a swatch of this one, we all know how black eyeliner looks! Obviously i couldn't just buy one thing! I also got a Slimshine Lipstick in Gentle Simmer, an Eyeshadow in Love Lace and Kohl in Minted. I think you can guess which one is which! The kohl is much brighter then it looks in the photo, i love green eye make up so can't wait to use it. What make up have you been buying? I can't decide if i need the Alice/Urban Decay pallete? Its so pretty and i don't own much Urban Decay(apart from liners).....


At the weekend i looked after my niece Amelie for the day, she is 1 now and her latest trick at home is trying to climb into the fridge.
As it was a fairly nice day we decided to walk to the park with one of the dogs. Amelie already has an impressive collection of shoes and for the trip we chose these awesome pink trainers with red glitter laces(i so want some!). Then i decided i best put something practical on.
Cream and navy striped boyfriend jumper-Primark, Black vest(underneath) and leggings- H&M, worn with plain pumps
So we got strapped into the buggy and set off. I have to say i'm loving Amelies mittens too!

The park where i live has a huge pond full of ducks, geese and swans, part of it was frozen and i felt so sorry for them sliding on the ice.

We went to the shop for a treat then walked back home for a sleep. Apparantly i'm really comfy to sleep on. I love babies when they are asleep soo peaceful.

And for being such a fabulous Auntie my brother got me a lovely bottle of Gucci perfume!
Arggh i'm so broody! xx

Review: Lush Karma Bubble Bar

The product
Lush Karma Bubble Bar. Priced at £2.95 a bar.

Whats the hype?
'Our signature fragrance for bath-time: oranges and multi-layered spices. Karma is a fragrance that keeps on giving. Each time you catch a whiff of its many-layered fragrance you notice yet another thread in its multi-stranded personality. Top notes, middle notes, base notes and all the notes in between disentangle themselves before you. Bathe in a fluffy Karma bath and you'll generously perfume the whole house with its fragrance (and yourself, too). ' Taken from the Lush website.

Produces lots of bubbles.

Only need half a slice for one bath

Good value

Leaves you with silky skin

I wasn't a fan of the smell,it is a nice smell but just not for me.

Would i repurchase?

No, the smell isn't for me sadly.

Leopard print and stripes

A few weeks ago in Grazia there was a picture of a girl wearing a leopard print skirt with a breton tee tucked in and a belt, i'm a total leopard print lover so it caught my attention. I've never even thought of mixing leopard and stripes before. I did a quick google and came up with these pictures(i hope i haven't stolen anyones photos). I think i can safely say i will be trying the two together.
I'm likely to do this, i have my leopard pumps and can easily imagine wearing them with stripes
Love this!!
Another easy way to mix the two

What do you think?

Haulin part 2

Here goes the second part of my haul!
Starting with my most favourite item a black jumper dress with studded shoulders. I got so many compliments on this.
Hideous changing room photo when i tried it on!
I got this fab striped vest in Kookai which is somewhere i never usually venture, it feels lovely and its long enough on me to wear as a dress yay!
Striped boyfriend jumper from Primark
Primark corsage
Cute headband from Internationale
Some glitter from Too Faced, its basically just pink glitter to wear anywhere you like!
Last but not least some fab undies from Asda, i am so happy they are doing big cup sizes with smaller back sizes now, not everyone with big boobs has a 36 or 38 back!
Also got a leaopard print set and a boring white bra.
What did you buy this weekend?

Face and outfit of the night

I went out last night but thankfully managed to not get totally drunk this time. It was so busy out, you could barely move. I originally was going out with friends but ended up meeting my ex and went out with him instead, we had such a laugh people watching and him taking the p out of my dance moves.
I went for purple eyes and red lips again, although the purple is darker as i mixed it with Mac Styleblack Blue Flame eyeshadow. I also used some fab false lashes which gave me purple lashes on the outer corner.
I'm a bit bored of my 'going out' clothes at the moment so i wore my skater dress. It was easy to dress up for a night out.
Dress- New Look, Black opaques(to cover the cuts from last weekends drunkeness!)
Red glitter shoes- Red or Dead

Red bow in hair

You can also see my bracelet in this photo of me with freaky eyes!
I woke up this morning to..........................snow :( Has anyone else had more snow? xx
