The Ultimate Shoedrobe

Like many other girls out there I have way to many pairs of shoes and most of them I don’t even wear. This got me thinking. If I was to only have shoes I would wear throughout the year, which ones would make the list. I’ve narrowed it down to eight, yes EIGHT, styles and you can read all about them below…

Primark beauty

Most of you know by now that Primark has it’s own range of beauty products. And while I was in London I picked up a few pieces to try. Especially because I had read that they were good.

Among other things I got this 8 HOUR DEEP HYDRATING CREAM with argan oil. And let me tell you, it’s really good. Or should I say, was really good because I’ve run out of it. In the winter time I get dry patches, especially my cheeks and putting this cream on before going to bed every night has really helped. I usually use a Nivea face cream that I love but this Primark one, considering the price, was pretty good too.

I know people always say if the price is high the quality is better and I just want to point out that that isn’t always the case.

Do you have any budget tips? What is something I need to try?

 

Tweed Liberty Tote

When I was in London in February I saw a girl in Primark with a bag I fell in love with. She literally walked past me and when I saw the bag I followed her upstairs to she shoe and bag section. I waited for the opportunity to present itself for me to ask her without me coming off as a stalker and a weirdo. She was super sweet about and told me it was a Victoria Beckham bag. Ever since then I’ve been looking for it but I can’t find it, it’s sold out everywhere.

I’m talking about the Tweed Liberty Tote

New fave

Ladies, I have a new favorite everyday lip product.

And it a Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in 105 Demure.

I picked it up in Boots at Victoria Station when I was in London and I’ve been wearing it pretty much every single day since.

It’s very moisturizing and I like the shine to it. And the color of the packaging is very cute as well.

Moving to London

I’ve been offered a job in London! The same guy has been calling me for the last two years. The job itself is great although it requires me to travel up to three times a week, within Europe. And I just don’t know if I’m OK with that. I’m 30 now, I feel like it’s time for me to settle down and be in one place. Moving to London and having to travel that much just means I won’t be. I’d be on a plane and at work more than home. A lot of my relationships suffer from me being away, even now. I don’t get to see my family and friends nearly as much as I’d like too.

Yet I feel like I need a challenge in life, to keep things spicy and interesting for me…

LOTD: London/Lillipop

While I was in London I picked up a Primark lipstick. I heard they were good and had to try it for myself. And at only £1.50, you can’t really go wrong. Yes, like any other lipstick out there you do have to re-apply throughout the day but other than it’s a great one. This is the matte long-lasting formula and it is exactly that. For me it lasts a long time and is matte. And what’s even better is that it’s not drying on me, at all.

The shade I’m wearing is Lollipop and it comes in three more shades. I only picked up the two different pink shades. There is also a red one as well as a nude. But, because I don’t really wear red lipstick and I already have a nude I’m happy with I didn’t pick up those. A decisions I’m regretting right now…

About last week…

If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.

I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.
