Look for less: Emma Stone

So we all know colour blocking has been seen everywhere lately, I've seen some good and some not so good. I didn't think I'd ever like the combination of red and pinks but Emma Stone really pulls this off. I absolutely love the combination with her red hair and coral lips, it's such a polished look especially with the nude heels.  So I found a couple of combinations for obviously much cheaper, I wish we could all afford a pair of Louboutins!  Anyway here it is, the look for less!

Kardashians for O.P.I - Sneak Peak

So I don't know if you remember but awhile ago but I posted about the The Kardashian Sisters realeasing a line of O.P.I polishes you can read that post here. Anyway they have finally given us a little sneak peak of some of the colours and the names are so adorable. Here they are from top to bottom left to right: 

All Kendall-ed Up, Sealed with a Kris, Kim-pletely In Love, Khlo√© Had a Little Lam-Lam, Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi, Rainbow in the S-kylie, Disco Dolls, Listen to Your Momager!, Wear Something Spar-kylie, It’s All About the Glam, Follow Me on Glitter, Kendall on the Katwalk, My Empire… My Rules. 

I think the names are really creative, but I think all O.P.I collections have great names. I think my favourite polishes in this collection so far are 'Rainbow in the S-kylie' and 'Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi' I do like the look of most of them but I think those two would be the most fun to wear. According to Kim Kardashian this is only half of them, it makes me a little bit excited to see what other colours and names they will come up with and I can't wait until they are realeased. 

By the way, I got all this information from Kim Kardashians Blog which you should go read if you like her or any of the Kardashians because she's always posting some good stuff. I'm so excited for the release of this collection!  (I think I mentioned that)

Which colours do you like best? Would you buy any of them?

Topshop Wishlist/Help

Just a quick little wishlist post, I was on the Topshop website the other day and was looking through and found so many things I liked. I know their prices aren't the most affordable but they honestly have some of the nicest stuff. I've never ordered clothes off Topshop so I'm a bit worried about the sizes, and I want those creepers so much. I converted the Pounds to AUD  and they only ended up being around $50 which is amazing, but I'm not sure what size to get. I am an Australian 10 and the conversion chart says I should be a 40 but I'd rather have shoes too big than too small. Can someone let me know what their sizes are like with their shoes/clothes because that would be really appreciated and I hate returning things. I am also obsessed with the nail polish and those sunglasses, seriously I think I'm going to get those because I won't have to worry about sizes, and as always I am lusting over grey t-shirts I don't think you can ever have enough because they go with everything! 

Would you buy any of this stuff? What is your experience with Topshop shoe/clothes sizing? 
Please let me know

Lush Haul!
































Hey everyone, it's been a little while since my last post I have been extremely busy with work and have been really sick. So anyway here is a few things my boyfriend bought me from Lush - I feel spoilt. Anyway the products I got I've actually wanted to try for ages, this is what I got

- Angels on Bare skin cleanser
- Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar
- Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar
- Vanilla Puff dusting powder
- Bubblegum Sugar lip scrub

(They even gave us some free samples of the '9 to 5 cleanser' and a 'Fair Trade foot lotion')

I have already tried most of these products out and I love every single one of them, they all smell absolutely fantastic especially the massage bars and they make my skin feel so good. The dusting powder is also such a great little idea and it isn't talcy or anything, and smells great. Out of all the products I have used the Bubblegum Sugar lip scrub the most as it is Winter here in Australia and due to being sick and cold my lips are constantly dry and wearing lipstick looks awful as all the dead skin shows up. So by simply using this and putting some light lip balm on it gets rid of all those yucky bits of skin and makes them feel really soft and nourished. I haven't mentioned the Angels on Bare Skin cleanser yet but I have used this a fair bit too, you only need the tinyest bit so I know it will last for ages and it really makes my skin feel lovely without being extremely drying, I would definitely recommend that everyone goes to Lush even if you don't buy anything just go in there and smell everything it's such a lovely store and they have some really awesome stuff and I've found the staff are always really helpful and know a lot about their products and can recommend what you need.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I am going to a friends 18th birthday party tomorrow night which will be really good and we will probably go out afterwards.

Has anyone tried any of these products from Lush, or do you have favourites from there you could recommend me?

My First Chanel.

 Hello Dolls.

It was my 21st birthday on the 5th of July and I finally got some Chanel cosmetics! I have been wanting to try Chanel for a long time so it was really great that I received a few items for my birthday.  I got two lipsticks & the brow kit. I got two different kinds of lipstick, one is the Rouge Coco Shine in 56 "Chance" which is described as a hydrating sheer lip shine and the other is Rouge Coco in 76 "Sari Dore" which is described as a hydrating creme lip colour. I noticed that the Rouge Coco Shine is quite a bit smaller (less product) than the Rouge Coco. The Coco Shine is only .1 OZ, the Rouge Coco is .12 OZ with only a $2 price difference. I think if I buy another lipstick, I would go for the Rouge Coco as the wear time is longer and it is better value for money.

Anyway, onto the Le Sourcil De Chanel - perfect brows. This is the cutest little compact I think I've ever seen, it comes with three different shades, two brushes and a set of mini tweezers. It is basically foolproof, all three shades can be mixed to create whatever colour you need. I feel like this kit will last a very long time which makes it a little easier to justify spending so much money on one product, it cost $109 here in Australia - luckily it was gifted!

All in all I am very impressed with the quality of these Chanel products. I can tell you now that I will definitely be buying more!

I took a few photos to show you what they look like. Sorry the colours in the photos aren't exactly true to colour due to poor lighting, but I think you'll get the idea.

Enjoy.





The cross earings are from Sportsgirl.


Please let me know if you think Chanel cosmetics are worth the money/if you any recommendations for my future Chanel cosmetic purchases.


I hope you're all liking our new layout! We love to hear feedback.
