Killer Heels

As promised, a picture of my new, nearly breaking my ankle, heels!

They don't look that high here but they certainly feel high when I'm wearing them.

Naughty Shoe Shopping and Nail Varnish

First off I thought I'd show you the new nail varnish I bought a few weekends ago...its from No. 7 and called Pink Grapefruit. I've had this post open for a while trying to get the photos up and its finally worked. The joys of weird uni network connections...

Its quite a cool colour, but looks really pink in some lights and really red in others. But I like it :) I've currently got a very red nail varnish on, pillar box red almost from No. 7 but not sure what it called, cos the label has come off! I seem to be going through of bit of nail varnish stage at the moment. Though need to get a good top coat cos they always chip really easily. Not sure if its the nail varnish or me just doing things and it chipping cos of that.

I've also recently bought some new Bronx heels from Dorothy Perkins which were an amazing bargain. They're basically just black courts with an ankle strap, the goes with everything shoe. I'd had my eye on them for a while but they were £90 but then they were reduced to £50 or something and then I had a discount code for 25% off so got them even cheaper. Was a bit of a nightmare with delivery though...I chose standard delivery which is meant to be 3-5 days, ended up taking almost 2 weeks!! Worth the wait though. They are so high, much higher than I'm used to and they've got quite a bit of a platform as well. I wore them out last night and had great fun trying to walk. It was already hard enough to walk anyway cos of the strong winds threatening to blow me over but nearly broke my ankle at one point, thankfully managed to save myself though! Pretty comfortable as well as far as heels go, after a night of dancing they hadn't rubbed or anything, just had achey feet. So very happy. May post a picture at some point.

Anyway, bit of a favour. Got another questionnaire, on craft magazines this time, that I would be so grateful if you filled it in. Click here to take the survey I've been so so busy with uni work lately and this is just part of a whole load of things I've been doing. The best assignment is a series of photography briefs, from taking a portrait shot to doing a romance themed shoot. I've got the romance shoot on friday, can't wait to do it! Should be fun. If my model doesn't mind, I'll post the final images once they've been edited and stuff.

Hope your all ok, I shall catch up very soon!

Fabulous False Lashes

Halloween, last week, found me on the search for some great false eyelashes as part of my look as a cat. I kinda ended up not really dressed as anything in the end but ah well! Anyway, I found some in claire's accessories which if you're not familiar with it, is like a teenage girls girly shop with jewellery, fancy dress stuff and various other girly bits. Not the ideal place really but it was late on Saturday and it felt like the entire population of the city was in town. I've always avoided false eyelashes until now, thinking they'd be too much hassle or that they'd annoy me but I am now totally converted! And on the hunt for more, both natural and dramatic party ones - so any recommendations please let me know.

Anyway, I went for a dramatic black smokey eyed look and this was the final result...
The lighting is pretty poor but you kinda get the idea. I loved the lashes, although after a few hours one of them got a bit loose at the edge so took them off. Today has been a great makeup shopping day. I took advantage of the £5 No. 7 Boots voucher and got myself a new foundation brush, loose powder and nail varnish in a very lovely bright pink-red called pink grapefruit. Also because I spent over £22 I got the free gift set which included a pinky gold eyeshadow called antique rose, a nail varnish called milan, a mini extreme length mascara and a liplicious lipgloss in marshmallow. I also got a mini protect and perfect night cream and serum (which I love!!) and blissful body wash. All this was contained in cool silver purse! So all in all, totally amazing and bargainous! I love things like this, gotta love Boots deals eh?

Hope you're all have a lovely weekend and managed to bag yourself so goodies :)
