new year's dress.

A few weeks ago i was asked to choose a dress from F&F and tell my readers how I'd style it up for the festive season.

I took my time looking through the dresses, (got a bit excited to see that my oldest friend Erin is modeling some of them :)) and then decided on a little Leather Look number.

Tonight I think I'm just chilling with the family so unfortunately wont be able to wear it, but I thought I'd still show how I'd wear it tonight if I was going out.

Quite simple; black and metallic. A pretty classic way to ring in the new year.



And if I had all the money in the world... 

Bag - YSL
Shoes - Charlotte Olympia
Lashes - Shu Uemura 
Lipstick - Topshop

what's in my make-up bag.

i don't do a lot of make-up related posts, which is bizarre because all i watch on youtube (apart from videos of seafood and fish) are make-up tutorials.

over the past couple of weeks, due to various lovely gifts, vouchers and bargains, i've been able to give my make-up collection a bit of a revamp. there was a bit of a teaser a couple of posts ago and i showed you i'd bought a few new bits from mac but i thought i'd delve a little bit deeper into the magical world that is my make-up bag..

first of all got to thank my lil bethany for my brand new make-up bag which she bought me for christmas. it was from & other stories, and looks like lovely tin-foil with a rainbow zip.
i'm very excited to be able to say that i finally own mac's face and body! now my skin has got a little bit better, i don't need as much coverage, so i thought i'd treat myself (using a voucher) and bought a bottle in c2. i wore it today for the first time and i like it a lot. i layered it up with the studio fix powder foundation to set it, which again is a new purchase.
for christmas, my mum bought me a Glamour magazine beauty box which had all sorts of lovely things in it, including the Urban Decay HD Brow kit, which i'm still getting used to because the brush is only little and i'm used to using pencils. but i do like the variety of shades which is in the kit.

Liverpool ONE Blogger Event Part 1: Yo! Sushi

a few weeks ago i was contacted by James from think publicity asking if i'd like to spend a day at Liverpool ONE, have some food, and visit the ice bar and ice skating rink they've got set up at the moment.

today was the day and i started off by taking a stroll round the shops, checking out my usual favourites like zara, whistles and american apparel. we then finished the day off with an unbelievable feast at Yo! Sushi, which i feel deserves a post in itself.

i think we had about 15 plates; it was Blue Monday, where each plate is reduced to 2.50 so it would have worked out much cheaper. i had two plates of some rare beef thing which was tres delish. plus some chicken firecracker rice, spicy pepper squid and prawn katsu.

Thanks to Jak who was very helpful throughout!

coming up tomorrow... shopping!
