Internacionale-ly Incredible

I never saw Internacionale as a go-to clothing store. Nothing about it ever appealed to me. Until now! How utterly amazing has its transformation been?! It’s gone from being dark, dismal and out of touch, to fresh, intriguing and modern. And most importantly, thoroughly affordable!

I made a trip in yesterday, seduced by the clean lines and gorgeous new arrivals at the entrance. Here is a (small) selection of my current Internacionale must haves!

Image

1. Blue marl slub tshirt dress £12.99
2. Purple purse £5.99
3. Fox jumper £19.99
4. Black dip hem dress £16.99
5. Midwash denim shirt £17.99
6. Khaki parka £44.99
7. Peace sign scarf £5.99
8. Khaki skinnies £12.00 (special offer)
9. Moustache scarf £5.99
10. Earrings £5.99
11. Tan bag £12.99
12. Tan stud boots £24.99

The parka is an absolute must-buy for me. It looks perfect for spring (it’s never really that warm here…)

Do you ever buy from Internacionale? Which item are you craving most?

Marc B handbag giveaway

Hi everyone,

One of my favourite brands Marc B is currently running a giveaway on their Facebook page where you can win a gorgeous new season bag.

Photobucket

I own three Marc B bags and have to say they look far more expensive than they actually are! I’m in need of a new ‘everyday’ handbag so these are my favourites from the current range:

‘Olive’ soft tan slouch bag

This is just the perfect colour for the winter to spring transition. The size is perfect and I love the casual feel of it. I would definitely take this on my trip to Spain in May!

‘Madison’ maroon tote

I absolutely love the colour of this, it’s unusual and striking. The shape is very classic yet practical.

‘Millie’ black ostrich handbag

http://www.marcb.com/products/Millie-Black-Ostrich-Handbag.html

Just how expensive does this look?! It is a bargain at only £55. I love the tassel detail and the structured look.

What are your favourites from the Marc B range?

Jewellery love

So I went on a shopping trip yesterday… I blame my mum! She wanted to get some new curtains so obviously I ended up buying six dresses, a skirt, tights, and lots of cute jewellery!

Image

Image

These are the most amazing rings I have ever seen. And they cost just £1 for the whole set!

Image

Image

Image

Image

And I finally got my hands on a collar necklace which I am SO pleased with. This little beauty was reduced to £2.50 from £16.50!

Image

I was playing about with this earlier and teamed it with my Sunday lazy clothes just to show you how it looks on:

Image

So I love it and will definitely be taking this with me on my girly trip to London next weekend!

What do you think of collars?

Cowboy boots obsession

Hello everyone,

I have been struggling to find a pair of boots that are a) comfortable (I walk alot!) b) stylish and c) reasonably priced. Most cheap boots don’t last or are uncomfortable and I really don’t have alot of spare cash at the moment so can’t splash out! So imagine my excitement when I found these Rocketdog ‘Satire’ boots on Amazon for just £15!

The price has now shot up to £40 plus £4 delivery so I suppose I was lucky! I impatiently waited for them to arrive and couldn’t contain my excitement when I tried them on and exclaimed “I HAVE FOUND COMFORTABLE HEELED BOOTS!!!!” Admittedly, they were a little difficult to get my feet into at first, even though I don’t have wide feet, but this improved massively after wearing them for a few hours. The lining is so soft and warm and I don’t even realise they have heels! Okay, it’s not a high heel, but it’s just enough to make my legs look better and take my look from lazy student to 23 year old office worker.

I have requested a black pair for Christmas from my sister 🙂

You can buy these on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005468H5A/ref=asc_df_B005468H5A10127585/?tag=googlecouk06-21&creative=22134&creativeASIN=B005468H5A&linkCode=asn
or eBay. Prices vary.

I love Poundland

I have been on the hunt for Stila products in Poundland since I read that they were now stocking the range, so you can imagine my delight when I picked some up yesterday!

I managed to grab the SPF 30 tinted moisturiser in warm (dark 02):

Image

Image

I also got three of the foundation powder refills just in case they run out as they are a nice light colour for my ghostly pale skin!

Image

Image

The dark tinted moisturiser is for my sister who can carry off a darker colour, and it really isn’t too dark once applied.

I also went home with a mini beauty set consisting of Russian doll tweezers, nail files and a compact mirror (obsessed with Russian dolls so had to buy it!), Schwartzkopt Gliss shampoo (which I think is normally around two or three quid), lots of chocolate (of course), a set of make up brushes that look really lovely, four blade razors, and a Dora the Explorer book for my little niece. Very impressed with my haul yesterday! Might call in again today to a different store!

Rimmel Scandal Eyes mascara review & boot sale purchase!

I received the new Rimmel Scandal Eyes mascara in the post the other day from Glamour magazine. It was a competition prize I wasn’t expecting so was happy to receive it as I had wanted to try it!

Image

I don’t really like the bright orange packaging but this is good value at £6.99 for 12ml from Boots.

Image

The brush is nice and thick but I tend to prefer thinner brushes as they give an overall more natural effect.

I’ve been using this for the past couple of days and sadly am not overly impressed. The mascara goes on well and makes my eyelashes look long and curly and nicely separated:

Image

However, after a few hours, the mascara has completely worn off and my eyelashes are back to how they were before I applied it! So unfortunately this product isn’t much good for me as I can’t keep applying throughout the day. I love mascaras that are long lasting, such as the Body Shop Big & Curvy mascara, which is the best I’ve used to date, even better than Benefit Bad Gal!

Image

You can head over to the product page on the Boots site and read the reviews. Scandal Eyes mascara has only scored 3 stars out of 5 from customer reviews. I would score it 2.5 out of 5 as it is mediocre but I will continue using it, although will probably layer it with another mascara.

Today I am wearing this gorgeous Lipsy blouse:

It only cost £3 from the car boot sale I went to on Sunday!

Chelsea Girl

I have an overwhelming need for some wedge heeled Chelsea boots for the winter – well, actually, for now because it may as well be winter!

I am in love with this pair from H&M and think I should order them before they go out of stock!

In other news, I made a purchase yesterday which excited me very much! I go a gorgeous black satchel bag by BCBG Max Azria in the TK Maxx clearance sale!! For the grand total of £44! TK Maxx original price was a hefty £129.99 so the RRP was probably double that! It is way more pretty in the flesh. I will try to get some of my own photos of it.

Heading out for dinner tonight. But the highlight of my weekend will definitely be my trip to a car boot sale on sunday – cannot wait!
