Natural Collection Lipsticks


Natural Collection Moisture shine lipstick
 in Raspberry, Pink Mallow and Rose Bud.

Boots have a 3 for £5.00 on Natural Collection at the mo, actually i think they might have that on all the time I'm not sure but every time i look at these they are always on offer but still i decided to pink up some lipsticks today. I am going through a bit of a lipstick hoarding stage so for these being cheap is a real plus. I don't really know how i feel about them tbh, i applied the raspberry which don't get me wrong is a lovely everyday wearable colour, they all are actually but i just don't feel they last long. I applied blotted and applied again but still the same thing. I know for £1.99 you can't really moan but i have heard a lot about these and how good they are but i do feel a little disappointed. One has already broken off already!
Has anyone else tried these? What do you think?

Vintage Jumper and some Pink Lips


Jumper - Vintage
Shirt - Vintage
Boots - Local Shop
Chain ring - Topshop
Cage ring - ASOS
Ear Cuff - Ebay
Earrings - Pure Dead Brilliant
Lips - Natural Collection Pink Mallow
Nails - NYC Velvet Rope

Hey guys.
I haven't done an outfit post for ages but I'm getting back into the swing now so hopefully you should be seeing a lot more.
This is my favorite jumper at the moment. I brought it from the Charity shop down the road (where i get most my clothes) it's such an amazing shop i never come out with empty hands especially when i see bargains like this for £1.00. I can tell its handmade as weirdly one of the sleeves is longer than the other but that's alright as i roll all my jumper sleeves up anyway. I love the colour it's like a speckled brown and i love the longer length it has which means i can get away with this outfit for being on the short side but have no fear i still wore shorts.
This nail polish is my favorite colour of all time. I originally had the Barry M one but after that ran out i saw in Superdrug this colour for only £2.45 and i can honestly say i will never be without it. I think it just suits my skin colour perfectly and applies like a dream - 2 coats perfect opaque nails.
These were actually my Christmas nails, using my trusty Nailene petite 200 nails and some Barry M glitter hexagon polish i thought it created a nice simple Christmas feel. I applied these nails on Saturday night its now Thursday and they are still firmly on. Highly recommend these i will never be without.
That's about it. Take care.

Pure Dead Brilliant Beal Boat Earings



I was recently contacted by the lovely people at PDB, a jewelry company born in Bali but with roots in New York, London, Scotland, Barcelona and Paris. The brains behind these pieces is a lady called Nora Logan who says, "Pdb wants people to do a double take when they see someone wearing a piece of their jewelry in the street or at a party. We believe these pieces can be a conversation piece as well as a versatile everyday adornment. The jewelry can be mixed and matched, or stand out on their own as a piece of wearable art."
I was lucky enough to be sent these fabulous earrings which just scream my name, the fact that they are sterling silver, dagger shaped and not your everyday getup made them just stand right out. 
I love these so much, i wore them all day Christmas and didn't even feel i had earrings in, they are so light but so well made the detail in the boat on the top is amazing and the story behind them is they take inspiration from antique hors d'oeuvres skewers representing love of travel and adventure. I love that my earrings have a little story behind them.
They have some really unique jewelry, their rings are out of this world so go check the website out as they have just launched their new line.
Much love

Christmas Outfit and snapshots


Dress - h&m concessions
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins

Hi guys.
I know these pictures are not great quality but you get the jist.
I brought this dress a while back with Christmas in mind and i just love it so much, the sleeves just totally sold it also the fact its velvet, just perfect.
Had such a lovely Christmas at my mums, she cooked an amazing roast and it was just a nice day all round spent chilling with family, just what Christmas is about.
My little boy had a lovely day and was spoilt rotten. When you have kids it just all goes and the window and that day just fixates around them so it was nice seeing him so happy.
By 9 o'clock i was pretty gone, one to many glasses of wine hey ho!
Anyway how was everyone else's Christmas?
Nearly new year now ...
Love Steff

Christmas Greetings.



Hey guys.
Ive been totally missing from the blog sphere lately but as we approach the new year everyone whacks out their new years resolutions so here's mine...
I want to blog daily or at least every other day.
I also want to stop smoking completely as i still have the cheeky one here and there.
So hopefully i fulfil these considering they are not really that hard to achieve but we will see.
Anyway i hope everyone had a lovely Christmas day, i know i did spending time with my family drinking far to much wine and eating for the five thousand, all in true Christmas tradition.
I have some blog posts planned for the next couple of days and i may even squeeze a video in also.
Take care and nurse those food baby's!!
Much love 
Steff

Stripey pants and a hat

Hat - H&M
Jumper - H&M
Trousers - C/O Motel Rocks 
Boots - New Look (Old)
Necklace - Topshop
Ring - Topshop
Charity String Bracelets - Topshop 
Glasses - RayBan RX5184 2012 Dark Havana

Hi guys.
So just to begin with these are actually my reading glasses not the fake emo glasses everyone and their mum has, just thought i would clear this up to start with.
Moving on a few weeks ago now you'll now i went to the Motel Rocks event up in London, well the lovely people at Motel sent everyone that attended an item of clothing of their choice. Obviously lusting over the Motel Skinny Jordan Jean in Black and White Stripe for ever i knew i had to get a pair, i choose mine in Charcoal and Black Stripe just to shake it up a bit and realising that everyone has the black and white pair. I'm not really a trouser kinda girl but honestly these trousers are so frecking comfy. If your after a pair and uming and ahhing just do it...right now go get them! Loooove them so much.
Again another well the same black jumper, honestly i never take it off being as sad as i am i may even buy a few in black so when one gets washed ... you know.
Picked up this cute hat in H&M the other day seeing as I'm still suffering from an ear infection i just wanted something to cover my ears so the wind wouldn't hurt them. Woe is me. I love it though it has a little fluffy ball on it too.
Also picked up some Topshop donate to charity strings, only £2.00 each and its going to a good cause, whilst in there i saw quite a lot of Tribal jewelry that tickled my fancy so i may be going back to stop up on some blingaling.
Enough from me, speak soon.
