Hey loves! With the glum situation that happened in London, which unfortunately spread throughout the UK, I didn't really feel like going out and about unless I absolutely had to. I wont dwell to much on those series of horrific events (mostly because alot of it was practically on my doorstep), but instead of hitting the shops and dwindling on uncertainty about which shops were still offering home delivery or not; I hit up asos.com for some trusty and much needed retail therapy. I don't know if you guys knew but asos.com had a 20% off code running last week to give you a chance to check out their new season stock. I actually didn't know myself until a lovely friend told me about it and told me I better get shopping... no one needs to tell me twice!
Its actually a medle' of items, I thought I'd check out all departments to see what goodies to pick from. First I'll begin with the beauty related items.
The Benefit Eye Bright has been one of those items that I always make a mental note of but never find a moment that I can validate buying it. There all seems to be something ahead of it. But now I bit the bullet and clicked add to shopping bag on this straight away. I bought it to use in my waterline to brighten the eye and give it that wider look. Many often recommend using a white liner to do this but with my skin tone a white liner can look too sharp. The hint of pink in this pencil does the job at getting my desired effect.
Ok yes I took a sneak peek at the NARS products again *covers face in shame* I couldn't help myself. I've wanted Galapagos as well for oh so long! Its an amazing deep brown with tons of gold shimmer, it basically just cried out to me. I can see myself using this over and over maybe smudged into my crease during the day or swept across the lid and smoked upwards, with lashes in the evening. I'm excited!!
Since my banishment of acrylic nails in recent months I've really taken an interest in nail care, designs and have started indulging more in nail colours. I saw this Paul and Joe Nail Enamel Trio a while ago when it was £15. but now that it was reduced to £8 I saw no need to not help myself. Its rare that I buy a set of nail polishes adamant that I'll get a wear out of all colours, but this time I am more than satisfied. The colours are beyond adorable the perfect shades to see out the remaining days of summer with.
I don't know if you guys have noticed the dip-dye earring trend chain earrings. Most clothing retail stores have their own interpretation but these are definitely my fav (Topshop also have a pretty nice pair). I think their really subtle yet interesting, very much my style.
