Before purchasing mules for the first time, there was a few worries I had about the practicality of such a shoe:
 1. My foot would fall out (especially whilst driving, or get caught underneath a pedal).
 2. The suede on most of them would ruin instantly by our glorious English weather.
 3. The severity of exposure my heel would face would disgust every human being that was to glance in such a direction - for someone that's so prone to blisters, my heels are somewhat ruined. Then again, backless shoes mean no blisters - I guess it's a catch 22. 

Surprisingly however, driving has not been an issue, our heatwave has preserved the suede and my heels, well, it's nice to have some breathing space.

Has anyone else invested in a pair of these? 


Eyeshadow makes me think back to Year 7, when me and my friends would make ourselves up as much as we could get away with on a Friday (there's clearly a lot of people to impress at a girl's school). We'd curl our hair like Poodles, and adopt the trendiest of make-up styles. My favourite of the latter had to be the day I blended pink and blue eyeshadow on my lids - I clearly had technique at a real young age.

Thankfully, the power of nudes came into play and I can experiment on a daily basis without looking like I'm in a pantomime. I've tried so many brands, from No.7 to Collection 2000, Revolution and Urban Decay, and have narrowed down my favorites for this year.

The first has to be my trusty MAC palette. Since the birth of blogs, I've wanted to build my own palette but due to the price, have always shied away and bought other brands instead (so many in fact, that I may as well have just bought this in the first place!) and I'm so glad that I finally own it!! The fallout is minimal, they are really pigmented and best of all, you pick all your own colours so there will never be one you don't use!
From left to right.
First Row: Blanc Type, Grain, All That Glitters, Hello There (I depotted this from their Flamingo Park collection)
Second Row: Texture, Woodwinked, Expensive Pink, Girlie
Third Row: Embark, Sable, Antiqued, Coppering and Amber Lights

Next up are the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmorise cream eyeshadows. Oh my god. These are the creme de la creme (see what I did there?). The formula is incredible buttery, a little goes such a long way and they last all day. You can even apply liquid liner on the top and it doesn't run or smear - a problem I find with a lot of cream eyeshadows. They also blend perfectly with other colours, so this Jean (the lighter shade) and Mona Lisa (darker) combo are the duo.

Lastly is my Zoeva Nude Spectrum palette, that I treated myself to last week. The colours are similar to the ones in my MAC palette, but I've found that copper shades and slightly warmer browns are harder to find in MAC but it's something this palette does brilliantly. It's also super lightweight which makes it perfect to pop in your overnight bag. Even the outside is gorgeous-having a velevety texture and light-reflecting details. It's also incredibly well priced, considering the quality of the shadows.

Zoeva are definitely becoming a new favourite of mine - their brushes are on another level and after this palette, I have high hopes for the rest of their collection!

Does anyone have any other must have eye shadows? Have you tried any of the above?


Top - Topshop / Jacket - Stradivarius / Jeans - Topshop / Shoes - Topshop / Bag - Zara

I'd like to introduce you to my current love; the one that puts a smile on my face, the one that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, the one that protects me and the one that is always by my side.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is my jacket (what else?) 

From the silver buttons to the real leather (and ultra soft texture), this jacket is my perfect Spring piece. It's lightweight enough to not bring on any summer sweats, yet thick enough to shield me from the unexpected chill of a summer's evening. And for £48? I'd call that getting your money's worth.

Any product that is pink or nude in colour seems to be automatically making its way into my shopping basket at the moment. I love how pretty this season's colours are, and without veering too much into Barbie territory, I'm sure my wardrobe will soon be 80% pink at the rate I'm going. I love the girly edge it gives lingerie, or the softness it gives the belt...and, well, what's a wishlist without a bit of Mansur Gavriel?
