sale wishlist!

Monday, 28 July 2014

There is nothing like the feeling of getting paid. This month I worked extra hard so have a bit of spare money, well until the exhaust broke on my car, so lets just brush over that. I found that there are some really good things left in the sales too! Heres my top picks..

Kimono / New Look - was £24.99 now £15
Dress / Miss Selfridge - was £30 now £8
Skirt / New Look - was £17.99 now £9
Top / Topshop - was £28 now £12
Dress / Topshop - was £59 now £25
Dress / Miss Selfridge - was £35 now £20

I've decided that I need everything on this list, who needs a new exhaust anyway?! (I joke of course!) Have you found any sale bargains?

five things I have loved this week.. #2

Sunday, 27 July 2014

I was hoping to post way more that I did last week. I don't really know what happened the week kind of just flew and i'm not too sure where! I really need to learn to manage my time more efficiently! Here are a few things that have brought me happiness though!

hoptimus prime
I went to a Pub Quiz this week. It was music themed and we were rubbish! When I say rubbish we either knew every question in the round or none at all, it was very hit or miss! One thing that did make me and Lewis smile though was this Ale plaque that was on the wall. I think Hoptimus Prime is the best play on words ever! It still makes me laugh, even now!

duolingo
I said in my goal post, that I wanted to learn Spanish. Well for once I am actually doing something and trying to stick to it! If you don't know, Duolingo is a free site where you can learn a different language, all you have to do is sign up and work your way through the lessons. It is really simple and fun too and I do feel like I am actually learning something, I hope!

My mum was watching a program on The Temptations this week and when this song started it instantly took me back to being a child and dancing around the room with her. I always used to say this song was about me, I still secretly think it is, ignoring the fact that I wasn't even born when it was out of course!

teenage mutant ninja turtle pyjamas
I done a sneaky Primark trip this week. As my local store is open until 9, it is so nice to pop out there at night just for a mooch around without the crazy Primarni shoppers. I had to pick up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pyjamas whilst I was there, I have quite the obsession with pyjamas these days!

sugar skull nail art
You may have seen these decals on the blog before (here)! I haven't used them in a while but they are just so cute, I knew as soon as the pastel varnishes came out these needed to be layered on top!

I hope you have all had a lovely week, adiós!

MAC amplified lipstick - girl about town

Thursday, 24 July 2014

mac girl about town lipstick
mac girl about town lipstick review

This lipstick has been living in my stash for a good few months now. I don't even know why it has taken me so long to use it! Every time I look at it, I end up putting it away and using a red or purple shade instead..naughty Emmy.

Now I have actually gotten round to wearing it I must say I am in love and it is definitely my go to lipstick whenever I am off out! I am slightly annoyed at myself for not picking it up before, that will teach me for not using things straightaway.

Girl About Town is a bright fuchsia pink that really brightens up any makeup look. If you was to search for an 'in your face pink' then this is exactly the colour that would appear. It is so vibrant and makes me smile every time I wear it. I find that it is more of a going out colour, although it is quite a nice statement paired with neutral makeup in the daytime too.

This is an amplified finish which explains the boldness in colour, even after the first swipe it is nice and bold. It glides on like a dream without pulling at all and doesn't bleed or smudge, which is a bonus especially after a few Malibu and Coke's. 

I prefer this on me with a tan a lot more than when my skin was paler, as it looked completely off colour. I have to apologise for my hair in this photo too, this weather has made it go all sorts of crazy! MAC amazes me again, as always!

five things I have loved this week.. #1

Sunday, 20 July 2014

I have decided that each week I am going to share 5 of my favourite things that have made me happy from the previous week. Hopefully I can share some happiness around with this weeks choices...


I went to see Begin Again this week and when I heard this song, I knew it needed to be downloaded as soon as I got home. The lyrics are beautiful and as many of you probably know I am completely in love with Adam anyway so this was always going to be a fav!

I am so proud of this photo, usually when a butterfly lands or something photograph worthy happens, it takes me so long to actually grab my camera I miss out. Well not this time! This pretty little thing landed on my fence and I managed to grab my phone and capture it in all of its glory before it fluttered away!


I mentioned before that I went to see Begin Again this week. If you haven't seen it, then you really must. It's a true feel good film and the songs get stuck in your head. (We all downloaded the soundtrack to sing along too) not to mention you get to look at the beautiful Adam Levine too!


I love this time of year as all of my mums flowers start to bloom in the garden. My favourite at the moment has to be this lily!

I spent Saturday evening with my best friends, which was lovely. I was on popcorn duty, but managed to burn it to a crisp which just shows I have a long way to go with my culinary skills.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, what would be your top 5 favourite things from last week?
