Weekly Wishlist

Admittedly this wishlist is a little all over the place, I don't really know how to explain it. All I know is that I want it all! I am really into knits, they are pretty on trend right now, It's just whenever I go to a shop they have so many different ones to choose from. I am going shopping this weekend and will probably splurge on some clothes because I feel like I have none and I am going to Brisbane on Sunday but I have eyed off so many things that I want and it's not fair that I'm so indecisive. This weeks wishlist also includes some makeup that I have lusting after. I just need to save some money!

The wishlist consist of: 
  1. Urban Decay Vegan Palette - Beauty Bay
  2. Nars Blush in Orgasm - Mecca Cosmetica
  3. Leopard Pill Box Hat - Mod Cloth
  4. Sheer Socks in Coral - Sportsgirl
  5. Ripped Sweater in Beige - Ally
  6. Pink Pleated Skirt - Topshop
  7. Agate Body Amour - Sportsgirl
All items can be bought in or shipped to Australia, which is fantastic. 
Would you buy any of this, I am very keen on getting the body amour. 

Kardashians for O.P.I

Okay, so I know I'm a little bit late on the news that the Kardashian sisters have announced they will be doing a Kardashian-Inspired collection. I for one am so excited for the nail polishes, O.P.I always does a great job on their collections and the names of the polishes are always so cute. I really hope I am able to get some when they come out because I know this will be a coveted collection and will probably sell out really super fast. I have been a long time fan of the Kardashian girls, I love all their shows and I think they're all beautiful this collection should be a huge hit and I am so excited. Now the only thing is to find somewhere where I live that sells O.P.I or be ready on the release day to buy it online.

What does everyone else think, are you excited for this collection? I know I am.
Will anyone else be buying it? Let me know what you think, love or hate?

I would love to try out Chanel cosmetics. Everytime I go shopping I'm so tempted to stop by the Chanel counter but for some reason I just never have. I did ask for a sample of the Pro Lumiere foundation once but apparently they don't do samples...I guess I'm abit worried about spending so much money on one thing (even if it is Chanel) and possibly not liking it. I have never tried the lush soap either, but I hear it smells amazing.

Bare Escentuals Glimmer eyeshadow in "Nude Beach"
"Honey I Washed The Kids" soap from Lush
Chanel brow kit
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua
Laura Mercier translucent powder
MAC Creme Cup lipstick
OPI Teenage Dream nail polish

if only....

Review: Covergirl Smoky Shadow Blast

I have wanted to do a review on this product ever since I bought it in December, I have many reviews and mine will be quite similar to the ones I've read. I bought the Smoky Shadow Blast in Onyx Smoke. It goes on okay, but not the best it can really just look bad on your creases I find it looks best just in the corner of your eyes and that's where I use the shimmery white most. The main problem I had with this was the very first time I used either of the ends it snapped off with minimal pressure. I bought another to see if it was faulty but the exact same thing happened with the second one it snapped off. I find it can be effective if you use it just on small areas but it still isn't a fantastic product. Like I said I only like putting it in the corner of my eyes for a highlight. I never use the black end and I find it smudges way too much and the colour is all wrong on me. I wouldn't recommend this product as I haven't had a positive experience with it, I haven't tried any of the other colours either and from what I've been reading a lot of people have had the problem I have. Anyway let me know if you have used this product before and if you've had any of the same problems?

Cuffs and Collars, Outfit post

I'm so excited, my sister got a great new lens for her camera and the photos turn out so much better and clearer. This is our favourite spot to take photos it's pretty isolated so you don't get people just staring at you like your some weirdos.
Anyway on to the outfit.

Dress with beaded cuffs, Ally - $34.95
Dimepiece cross collar, Nasty Gal - $49.95
Lace insert socks, ASOS - $6.00
Red wedge boots, Rubi Shoes - $39.95
Double headed skull ring, Lovisa - $15.95
Silver ring pack, Diva, - $13.95

I also attempted to get a few close up shots of my makeup in
I'm wearing
- Revlon Colour stay foundation,
- Neutrogena Healthy Skin pressed powder (they don't sell it here in Aus and I'm almost out *cry*)
- Milani liquid eyeliner (don't sell that in Aus either)
- Covergirl smokey eye stick
- MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo
- Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara
- Australis eyeliner pencil in black

I really want to do a review of some of these products and some of the stores that I've bought the clothes from, I absolutely love my MAC lipsticks, but I am looking for a non matte red as I find it is quite drying so if anyone has found some great bright reds that aren't matte or too shiny either let me know. I hope you like my outfit posts, I'd love some feedback. Would you wear any of this?

Market HQ

Since I've started loving clothes, I've always loved the brand Minkpink, they are always up there with on trend pieces for reasonably affordable prices. I used to work in a clothing store that was a stockist of Minkpink and I used to get so excited when the new ranges would come in. For a while now I've been checking up on Market HQ where they sell Minkpink and other fantastic brands like Evil Twin etc. I have always wanted a billion things off there when they put the new stuff up but I never seem to have the money then when I go back it's sold out, I guess that's just life! Anyway I was on there this morning and I couldn't help but love so many things that are really on trend and pretty good prices, I think I will be making an order once my funds will allow me to. I've compiled a little wishlist of things that I love, and if you go on there you can't help but notice what a great job their stylists do, they seriously make every outfit look amazing and really on trend. I love how they use hats all the time, I myself am a huge fan of hats and have a pretty good collection.

These are a few of the many outfits that I love, I especially love the two red flowy tops, the camel coloured handkerchief skirt and the flares. This website has some seriously good clothing and if you've never been on you need to check it out, I wish I could have it all.

The clothes are all available from Market HQ

P.S If anyone loves me ;)

Lita VS Zoe

Help me choose girls! I am going to buy one of these pairs of shoes. I know they've been around for a while and blogged to death but I have wanted both of them for a very long time. It's finally come to the point where I can't not live without at least one of the pairs any longer! So I want your opions to help me choose. I wish I could get both but funds at this point will not allow that. It's coming into winter here in Australia so they would be a good investment for me - I always try to justify my purchases to myself (and my boyfriend) ha ha.

Jeffrey Campbell Lita & Sam Edelman Zoe Boot

Leave a comment below to let me know what you think of these shoes/which ones I should get. I am leaning slightly more towards the Zoe.

Also, don't forget to enter our giveaway, it ends on the 9th of May!

Weekly Wishlist

I am so sorry, I have been such a terrible blogger. I do have a good excuse though, I have been really sick then when I finally got better my laptop broke so I have been sharing my boyfriends MacBook and haven't had enough time to hog it and post some blogs or make a wishlist. So here is is my wishlist for this week, I know it's small but I haven't been inspired by that much lately. I am so excited tomorrow I fly to Brisbane where I am going to see Katy Perry on Thursday night which coincidentally turns out to be my 18th birthday so it should be a really good day and I will try and take some photos for you all. Hopefully I can get back into the routine of posting these every week and doing my celebrity fashion icon of the week. So don't worry I haven't already forgotten about you, and also if you'd like to enter our giveaway there is still a few more days left and it is simple as. I'd love if you could enter and even spread the word about our blog.

So on the wishlist this week is:

  1. Rugged Stone Ring - Asos
  2. Kissing Foxes Ring - Asos
  3. Statement Caged Metal Ring - Asos
  4. Aqua Wendy One Shoulder Peplum Dress in Red - Asos
  5. Bag with Leopard Print Trim - Asos
  6. Viki Boot in Black - Rubi Shoes
  7. Faithfull Lace Dress in Black - Nasty Gal
Sorry it's a bit dull, I have just been interested in finding some cocktail dresses or some dressy sort of dressy to start wearing out now that I am nearly 18. Once again all items are linked to where they are sold and they should go to the actual item. I know I have an Asos obbsession but who wouldn't they have the best clothes and free shipping? 

Has anyone else seen Katy Perry live? 
Leave me some suggestions or tell me what you're loving at the moment.
