ASOS Accessories Sale Haul!

Posted on July 1, 2015


Hi Guys!

Ooh I do love a good bargain, and I’m pretty much guaranteed to grab something from ASOS’s regular sales every single time. They have SO MANY things on offer, from fashion, to accessories, to gifts to stationery (I actually just picked up some gorgeous stationery bits the other day!)

I’ve been part of Access All ASOS for a while now and they’ve kindly given me a £50 voucher to shop the sale – woo hoo! £50 isn’t really that much to go shopping with these days, but when there’s a sale on I think I’ll be able to grab quite a few bargains! I originally had my sites set on beauty, accessories and possibly shoes…



Ok so you can see I didn’t end up picking up and beauty items, or shoes for that matter! Shoe shopping online can be a bit problematic for me as I’m a 5.5 so shoes often end up not fitting well. I decided to stay safe and went for accessories and stationery this time instead! Oh and I did cheat a little bit… the sale actually started on Monday at 8am, but as I’m part of ASOS Premier, ASOS often email their Premier customers with sale previews, so I sorted the whole of the sale into price order with cheapest first on Sunday evening (obv so I could get the best bargains) and added everything to my save list that I liked the look of. Then when Monday morning came I was all ready to purchase 😀

Here’s what I picked up!



I’m a bit of a magpie and ended up with quite a lot of jewellery, but I snapped up some fantastic bargains – the Gorjana bracelet for example was originally £95, and I got it for less than £20! I’d also highly recommend signing up to ASOS Premier, it’s only £10 for a years’ subscription and you receive free next day delivery with all orders, no matter how small, as well as free courier collection returns – saving you going to the post office, and not forgetting sale previews so you get the best picks of the sale before all the good stuff sells out!

I’m really pleased with my haul, I hope you enjoyed my post and I’d love to hear if you picked up anything in the ASOS sale? xxx

OOTD and Competition Win!

Posted on March 24, 2013

Last week I was so excited to find out I’d won £130 of makeup in a competition from RVB Cosmetics, an Italian cosmetics company. I won the RVB Color Therapy New Classic Lip and Nail collection, which consists of 5 lipsticks and 5 nail polishes.


The lipsticks are numbered 1-5 (in order above) I haven’t tested them yet but number 5 is definitely my favourite at the moment. The cases feel of good quality, fingers crossed the lipsticks will be good quality too!


I love the nail polish colours, again numbered 1 – 5, I though as I was going out last night I’d give the polishes a test!


I was in a rush so only had time to do one coat, you can see the colours are very pigmented and opaque, I would have preferred two coats but think I just got away with one!


(also note to self, paint nails after putting on jewellery!)


I wore my new River Island (ebay) aztec jacket, vintage quilted bag and lots of jewellery!



Hope everyone has had a great weekend! xxx

Rihanna for River Island – Hit or Miss?

Posted on February 18, 2013

We all love Rihanna, with her fierce sense of style and body to die for, every girl wants to be her. So when word got round that she was designing a collection for River island, we waited with baited breath.

I couldn’t wait for the sharp tailoring, studs and spikes, acid wash denim and sexy bodycon dresses with a nod to 90’s grunge.

What they came up with wasn’t quite what I was expecting. Take a look below…

I’m a bit disappointed.

Ok yes I can imagine Rihanna in the little lycra dresses, and even the crop tops and thigh split skirt. But the collection is just missing something for me, it just doesn’t have that edge, maybe it’s a lack of accessories? That girl does like her bling. Maybe if Rihanna was wearing the clothes herself I would feel different? I don’t know, it just seems to be missing something fierce and sexy that should be there, and I expected it to be there.

What do you think??
