BLOOMSBURY BOUQUET HANDBAG BACKPACK
RRP is £45 at John Lewis
As an avid Cath Kidston fan, I couldn’t resist this new bag from the lovely Cath.
This bag is a great transitional piece to go into Autumn, and very much on trend with the whole satchel vibe. I have a pink button up coat from Miss Selfridge I brought earlier in the summer as it was reduced. And the autumnal weather will mean I finally get to wear it, and I think this bag will look great with it.
I always carry so much around with me, I feel like I really need a sack to cart all my random belongings around in and this bag I think will work a treat. Neither too big or too small. Cath, you’ve got this spot on!
Accessorize nail polish, Revlon Colorburst and Urban Decay Smoky eye palette
I was in Accessorize today as they had a 20% member card event (I do love a loyalty card!) and I saw that they have a new nail polish range. The bottles are so pretty, and as the sales assistant said ‘they look like disco balls!’.
So with my discount I brought the Ballet Slipper colour as I have a penchant for pink nail polishes.
Also on a recent trip to Boots I brought a Revlon Colourburst lip stain. This was part of a lip colour promotion in (2 lip colours for £10) and I usually go for a lipstick and this is a great alternative.
The colour is 001 Honey and has a slight dark pink tint, but it’s still has a subtle colour on the lip.
Perfect for a day and great to balance out a heavy eye look for the evening.
As soon as I heard that Urban Decay was releasing another eye palette, I was googling when and when I could get my hands on one. I have a two of their previous palettes, and this one is just a wonderful.
As the name suggests, it is more darker shades, to create that classic smoky eye, with a a couple of gold shades to add some sparkle. I have been saving this palette for more of an evening/night time look as the colours are a bit heavier than the previous palettes.
They colours blend well and have great pigmentation. Yes, it is a bit on the dear side as far as pricing goes, but I believe you do get a great quality product that lasts and lasts.
(Though as a side note I have found a brand called Revolution sold through Superdrug that sell a palette for a mere £4 and is a great take on the UD palettes).
I hope you like my finds and would love to hear what you have found on your shopping trips!
