Lust After: Topshop New Arrivals

Topshop are really hitting the nail on the head at the moment

Here are just a few of things I'm lusting after atm
p.s I may have already ordered some of them!

This arrived in the post today,
no idea when I'll wear it but it's gorgeous!

I now really feel like I NEED the matching trousers!
Black Lily Biker Leather Ankle Boots - CJG for Topshop £150
I really liked Chloe Green's designs last season
but they were all far far too high.
These rocking biker boots are far more me.
As a blogger I have a genetic predisposition to coveting anything rose gold.
I love these an ungodly amount,
I'm so tempted to just order them right now,
but I'd be so sad if they went in the sale after Christmas!
These are so versatile,
go with anything,
covered in studs, what more could you want?
And they also come in black!
gorgeous shiny leather
these look super expensive and designer
get in my wardrobe!

Review: Fanpac London Rock T-shirts

Hey guys,
Look I managed to get my beardy boy on the blog!!
We were sent these amazing t-shirts by the lovely people at Fanpac London.
They sell officially licensed rock t-shirts with awesome prints on the front.

I chose their Blondie tee,
all their tees come in relaxed unisex sizes,
I got a M and it fits perfectly (I'm a size 12-14 on top)

The boy is the biggest rock fan I know, hes hugely into prog rock,
so when he saw the Pink Floyd one he knew it was for him! 
He got a L as he's pretty broad shouldered and tall, and it was fine.

Their tees retail at £19.99
and they are really worth the money.
They feel really soft, the prints are fantastic quality,
they keep their shape and wash well
So overall we are both really pleased!

 I Wore:

Blondie T-shirt - Fanpac London
Black Jeans - Marks & Spencers
Studded Leather Jacket - Religion
Luxury Jones style boots - DIYed by me!

Review: Guerlain Météorites Teint Powder Compact

Hey guys
Todays post is a review of Guerlain Météorites Teint Powder Compact
that was sent to me by the lovely people at Debenhams
and a bit of a fotd while we are at it :)

I've wanted to try any of the Guerlain meteorites poweders for so so long.
I remember my Nan having the Voyage compact when I was little and I always admired it!

It comes in a lovely little velvet pouch
and as it's the compact rather than the loose powder/balls its super easy to take with you places.

The packaging is really cute,
the pattern is classic Guerlain but with a modern twist
obviously it's not as luxurious as the Voyage compact,
but it still feels really good quality.

I chose shade 01 Rose as I am super pale,
and it's perfect for my skin tone.
As you can see I've worn down the pattern, as I've used it pretty much every day for 3 weeks
so it's had a thorough test!

Here is a swatch,
on bare skin there is not really a lot to see,
it's pale skin toned, with an ever so slight shimmer.
It it more matte than I had imagined, 
especially compared to the meteorites shimmer balls I've tried.
I really like the combo of mainly matte with a tiny bit of shimmer
as it works really well to set your foundation,
giving you a finish that is slightly glowy without being glittery or too shimmery.

Here is what it looks like on, on top of my foundation with some bronzer aswell.
I used it all over my face with my kabuki, adding a little extra on my eye bags!
It only has a very slight colour but it works fantastically well in comination with your foundation
to create a flawless look.


Benefit That Gal as my primer

Lancome Tient Idole 24H foundation in shade 005 (palest)
mixed with a little of Maybelline's bb cream in light
with a squirt of Mac strobe liquid
 (to make the Lancome foundation less high coverage and a little more glowy)
to set and finish my foundation

With the Mac Wonderwoman Mineralise Skin finish in Pink Power as Bronzer

For my eyes I used the Soap and Glory Eyeshadow quad in  brown/neutral
a Brown no 7 eyeliner
and a miniature Clinique mascara

On my lips I used a Clinique chubby stick in Oversized Orange

Overall I'm really pleased with the product,
It works really well, and I would choose it over anything else I own to set my foundation.
The smell is quite strong, but I like it 
(but it is something to consider if you are funny about that kind of thing)
It's quite pricey but I think it's worth the money
especially if you can ask for it as a birthday / Christmas present.

Have you tried any of the Guerlain Compacts?
