31 December 2014


So here we are. The last day of 2014 and the last day of blogging everyday for this month. I have to say, I am super proud of myself that I managed to stick to and get something posted every single day. I am possibly going to take the first week of January and do nothing as I am a bit poorly at the minute and I need a recharge.

As everyone will have every year, there's been high points and low points but let's look at the good...

This year I travelled more than I've ever done before. I'm very much hermit and never really leave my little town. In January I was a crazy person and went to Russia for a week. We visited Saint Petersburg and Moscow and the average temperatures were around -26C everyday. Slightly chilly...
It was a lot of fun and a great experience. I was so nervous beforehand as it was something totally different and I don't like not being in my normal routine so I'm really glad I did it and especially in Winter to get the proper experience!

30 December 2014


This month I set myself the challenge of posting on here every single day of the month. Other bloggers do this all the time so shouldn't be too hard, right?
At the start of the year I said I'd try be more active and regular on the blogging front but that didn't really last. I dip in and out of posting regularly. I love it when I do it but sometimes it's really hard to find the motivation. So I figured, if I could attempt daily blogging for a month then maybe I'd kind of force myself into a routine. I never wanted to come out of the challenge and then be all "I'm a daily blogger now" because boy... I definitely cannot keep this up! But if I can get myself into some kind of routine for maybe 2-3 posts a week, that'd be good.

29 December 2014


It's only a few days until we see out 2014 and welcome in 2015. I'm staying in this year with a couple of friends and we're going to cook some food and have drinks and play games because at nearly 23 I am SO hardcore it practically hurts...

Whether you stay in or go out, I think it's always nice to dress up a little so here is the make-up I wore on a night out recently that I'll most likely be using again for NYE.


28 December 2014


I don't tend to do monthly favourites but I do enjoy seeing everyones end of year favourites. I've put together my favourite things from beauty and skincare to films and music so let's do this!

27 December 2014


I hope you've all had a lovely last couple of day with whatever it is you've been up to. I have still blogged so if you weren't online then please go and have a catch up.
There's now only 4 more days left of blogging everyday this month and I can't quite believe how fast it's gone. There's going to be a full post about that in a couple of days though.
But for today I thought I'd do a "Luxury Beauty Wishlist".

I was a bit wary and cautious of posting this prior to Christmas Day. I just can't get comfortable with the idea of presents and I didn't want to seem as though it was coming across as throwing hints and boasting or something. Which I'm more than sure it doesn't but yeah!
Besides, it's sale time now so what better time to get luxury products for a cheaper price?!

26 December 2014


I hope you all had great days yesterday doing whatever you got up up to. Yesterday's post was a little more serious and if you didn't see it then you can click here.

But on to today... Let me guess - yesterday you ate a lot of food, perhaps had a few glasses of wine and completely demolished a tin of Celebrations? As well as getting about 5 hours sleep? Feeling good today? Possibly not.
Well, let me talk you through a mini Boxing Day pamper routine...

25 December 2014


I didn't want to do a proper beauty related post today as it seems a little pointless. I originally wrote out a post about it being okay to not like Christmas and not to go after those people with metaphorical pitchforks. Which is still true, it is okay to not like Christmas. In our house, Christmas is just like any other day. We sit together, watch films, play games and eat loads. I like that, and by not having tinsel there doesn't make it less valid.

But then I thought I could be using this space to raise awareness instead of spreading what could be interpreted as negativity. We all know that this time a year is for giving but it's also a time of year when we suddenly don't have any spare cash at all as we left everything to the last minute. That being said, I am so uncomfortable with gifts. I like to give people presents but receiving is hard. I don't really get why we do presents... anyway, going off on tangents once again!
I'd much rather people gave their money to people who actually deserve it and need it.

I give money to two charities every month - Alzheimer's Society and Mind. They're both very close to my heart. If you can spare any money and actually want to it'd be so lovely if you could send them, or any charity at all, a little gift today and I'm sure it's going to be appreciated more than they could say.
Also, blood donations are needed more than ever this time of year. I have given blood a few times but for medical reasons, I'm no longer allowed to give. If you are healthy and able to give blood then you really should consider it. Their website tells you were is nearest to you.

I really hope you all have the loveliest day and I hope you're with the people you love.
And if you do have to be alone today, you can use the hashtag #joinin on Twitter. There's more information here.


Disclaimer: it should go without saying that nobody has asked me or paid me to talk about these charities. I just wanted to post about them because they deserve attention and donations more than I do.

First off, apologies for the iPhone photos. I did today's post a little last minute. 

I figured with Christmas Day tomorrow I should add a bit of glitter to the talons. We're just spending all day at home tomorrow but it's nice to dress up a little and everyone likes a bit of sparkle.
I decided not to go OTT so they're not really festive nails but that just means I don't have to take them off too soon ;)

I used a Seche nail polish in Lumiere that came in a Glossybox (I think...) I love this polish. Only need one coat and the colour is beautiful even in its own. Plus I love the name!
I put over the top (a pretty old) Barry M nail paint in Pink Iridescent. It just adds a slight sprinkle of glitter and I think they look really pretty together.

Just so you know, I do have a post ready for tomorrow. It's not beauty related and it's only a little one but quite important so if you do get chance to get online, please pop back over for a read.

If you don't get online then I hope you all have the loveliest day tomorrow and get to spend it with people you love.

Eyebrows. The last year or two the beauty world has gone eyebrow crazy. With the influence of the likes of Cara Delevingne, eyebrows are back to being big and full which is wonderful for me as mine have always been quite bushy!

With the help of the lovely Benefit girls, they tamed my eyebrows into a lovely shape that I love. Luckily I never did the whole "plucking until there was just the thinnest possible line of hair" so they just needed a little tidying. Benefit, being the self confessed Brow Queens, do amazing brow products for defining, shaping and setting the brows and a few of which I have tried and have been using for a long time. And then I discovered a new release from Sleek a few months back.
Let's see how they compare...

22 December 2014


After The Body Shop event the other day I needed to go to Superdrug quickly for a few last minute presents and so obviously I thought I needed treating too...
I needed to restock on a couple of things but really I just can't help myself. I haven't included the presents I bought but here's what new to my collection...

21 December 2014


I've been posting on this blog for a little over two years now (well, it's more like 4/5 but the first couple of years all got (stupidly?) deleted...) I digress...
I thought it would be pretty fun to see how the blog has changed and grown up over the last two years and how writing style and content differs.

20 December 2014


Hurray! Another The Body Shop blogger event organised by the lovely Rachelle at the Preston store. Crazy that it's been a year since the first Christmas event! It was so lovely to see Rachelle and Claire again and also meet Lily.

And obviously I didn't leave empty handed. How could I when The Body Shop let us have such generous discounts?!

One product that seems to have had a good year is the eyeshadow stick. Sounds peculiar but is actually genius.

Eyeshadow sticks just make the whole "lazy person that wants to wear makeup" thing so much easier. Draw on the eyelid and leave it bold, or you can draw on a couple lines on the lower half of the lid and use your finger or a brush to blend out for a softer look and then you're done! If you have more time then they're great bases as once they've set, they tend to just not budge all day.

Basically, Somebody decided to take eyeshadow, put it in the easiest to use form (cream, obv), then put that in a stick so you can literally just colour in with it.
Let's all just take a moment to thank that person.

Okay, done? Let's have a look at that ones I have and enjoy...

Whether we admit it or not, I think it's fair to say that appearance draws us to things. This is applicable to all areas of life and blogs are no exception. I bet if someone asked who your favourite blogs are, they'll be the ones that have a clear layout and great photos (as well as well written content but that's secondary to appearance, initially.)
You see bloggers talking about how to take better photos and improve the overall blog appearance but truth is, we don't all have these big fancy cameras, a couple of light boxes and a huge white room with tonnes of natural daylight to be able to achieve this.
My blog photos aren't great, I know this. BUT I recently discovered a little trick which is especially useful at this time of the year when we get about 40 minutes of actual daylight...

17 December 2014


It obvious from my little blog that I am a drugstore girl through and through. Sure, we all love the occasional bit of luxury but when the likes of the brands found in Boots and Superdrug are pushing out beauty products that rival, and in a lot of cases beat, high end brands then splashing out can be a little silly. (Disclaimer: I'm not telling you what you can or can't spend your money on. You earned it so spend £50 on foundation and feel amazing if you want. I would if I could afford to.) BUT the high street does bring IT.

Having said that, from trying out a lot of products I've have realised that some brands can be amazing at making one type of product but really suck at another. So today I bring you what I feel brands do the best at...

Next up in the series is from Superdrug's Hot Cloth Cleanser from their Vitamin E range. The previous posts can be found here.

Four years ago I was washing my hair every single day as well as drying and straightening it and I was dying it around every 6 weeks. I used to dye it purple for a while but it didn't stay intense for more than 2 weeks so I used to re-dye all the time before dying it dark brown.
This all resulted in my hair not being in all that great condition. I had a head full of split ends and as I had faux-dark hair, the little white ends were so noticeable and it was quite frankly disgusting.

One day I just decided that I'd abused my hair for long enough and it was time to fix it. I've FINALLY got to a point were I really like how it looks and it's in good condition but it was a very very long process...

14 December 2014


Quite a bold statement to make, especially to some? I've been using MACs Mineralised Skin Finish Natural for a couple of years and it is beautiful. It does what it says on the tin - gives a natural finish to the make up as well as setting it and keeping it in place all day.

My latest compact recently came to the end of its life and it was going to be a while before I could get to a MAC counter so I decided to find a cheaper alternative. Enter Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder.

I know everyone on the beauty blogging scene has already raved the new beauty book by Sali Hughes but I thought I'd thrown in my two cents...

Sali Hughes is a beauty journalist who has a weekend column in The Guardian (which is also very good and you should definitely have a read) and Pretty Honest is her first book.

12 December 2014


Last week I brought you some beautiful dresses fit for the party season so this week I thought if you're still panicking and trying to find the perfect shoes to match, here are some of my favourites out there at the moment.

Whenever I need to wear heels I always wear the same pair I got from Dorothy Perkins 3 years ago. I'm so awful at walking in heels and those ones have a chunky heel and an ankle strap so they make my life easier. And they're black so they go with everything.

11 December 2014


Can you imagine if 15 years ago somebody said, "One day you will be able to store all the music in the world, the details of everyone you know and be able to find out literally anything at the click of a button and all that would be stored on one single handheld device" you'd think they were bat-poop crazy!
But as it goes, that crazy person was right. The smart phone dominates and almost everyone has one of some kind of tablet/internet device.

I'm very nosey and like those "what's on my iPhone!" videos/blog posts so I thought I'd throw in my two cents and show you my favourite iPhone/iPad apps. (I'm not sure if all of these are available on Android too, sorry!)

10 December 2014


Yesterday I posted my top 5 lip colours so today is the time to give a run down of my favourite winter nail shades. I'm a huge lover of dark nails all year round. My inner Wednesday Addams wants black nails at all times but I've had people in the past judge me for that in Summer... pssh! So it seems to be deemed more acceptable when it's cold to have dark nails. I tried to make this a top 5 but I cheated and did 6. I just couldn't decide.

9 December 2014


It's no secret how much I love lipstick and bright, bold colours at that. (Though, I admitted my nude lip love affair last week...) I do wear dark and berry reds pretty much all year but in the colder months it just feels right. Here are my top 5 lipsticks I reach for in the Winter...

I've got an excited review today for you in the shape of the new Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette.

Urban Decay are notorious for doing incredible eyeshadow palette and the Naked range has a cult following - and with good reason. My first dip into the Naked world was with the Naked Basics a year or so back. It's got 6 shades that all work beautifully together and it's very travel sized friendly. I then saw the Naked 3, fell in love and hit "buy now" without thinking about anything. So very glad I did. I've never owned the Naked 1 or 2 but I love this palette. The packaging is beautiful and the shades even more so. A year after it's release and I'm still as in love with it.

The latest Naked launch is the On The Run palette and as with Naked 3, I saw a photo, went to the website and added it to the shopping cart so fast that I wasn't even sure what I did...

7 December 2014


Today it's time for my first ever empty products rundown. I've collected these over the last couple of months and then when I was planning these December posts I thought I may as well throw this in now!

I like empty posts and knowing if they would be repurchased as that's definitely more likely to convince me to go out and pick it up too. So here is what I've used up recently...

6 December 2014


Hands up... Who's ever taken a 5 minute recharge break, decided to have a browse on Pinterest and then the next thing you know you're three hours older?
I am so guilty. I open the app on my phone and then just mindless scroll and repin all the pretty things until someone snaps me out of my trance.

In case you aren't aware, Pinterest is a kind of social media site based around images. Think of it as a more sophisticated Tumblr.
It's great for getting inspiration for literally anything from hairstyles to interior design to where tog o travelling. Full of how to guides and photos that quite frankly make you ooze jealousy.

5 December 2014


I'm not the biggest fan of this time of year (please don't hate me...) but hot damn the shops get some beautiful dresses in stock!
If you're after a new dress for an upcoming festive event then here are just five of beautiful options for you.

4 December 2014


Nude isn't something that I usually associate myself with in terms of lip colours. I go bold or go home on a very much everyday basis. All about that bright pink lip all year round! So I have shocked myself by finding a nude lip combo that I'm totally obsessed with. Even my mum was shocked to see me without bright lips the other morning to go to work.

So what is this magic combo...

I have been using Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in 'Eastend Snob' to line and fill in my lips. I absolute love this formula of lip liner. I have Red Diva too and I'm actually on my second one of that. I prefer it to traditional pencils as it's more of a crayon so a lot softer on the lips and easier to fill in.
Everyone is also going crazy for the overdrawn lips look recently (I get the impression that this is due to a Kardashian girl but I know very little about them...) but this liner is so easy to use to go slightly over the natural lip line.
I then go over the top with the new Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Nude Delight. I am obsessed with these pencils! I have 3 colours and they are amazing. They are so soft and creamy, they last ages and so incredibly pigmented. They don't drag on the lips and they're not drying and I think they're only about £3 or £4! Bargain.
The Maybelline pencil looks awful on me on its own but under the Rimmel liner, I love it!

I also really love the Rimmel liner just on its own (photo below) but it's not as long lasting on it's own, especially after food and drink. Still, very pretty and I think I have become a nude lip convert! Who am I?!

Are you more a nude or bold lip person? And have you tried either of these products?

3 December 2014


On Monday night the annual British Fashion Awards where held in London. Now, fashion awards and British means you know the outfits are going to be killer!
Here's a round up of some of my favourite ones...

Hands up... how much do we all want Cara Delevingne's Burberry gown?!

2 December 2014


I'm kicking off my blogging every day in December (I need an acronym or something for this? BEDD? Don't think that works..!) with a new Unsung Heroes post. You can heck out the rest here but my Unsung Heroes are products that I use all the time and completely love nd would recommend to anyone, but I haven't actually really raved them on here before.

Today is the turn of my favourite discovery of 2014... L'Oréal True Match Foundation.

1 December 2014


Right, okay so now I've put it out there I'm going to have to actually do this. Admittedly, December was probably the worst month to do this in what with Christmas and presumably people not actually being online on festive related days but I got the idea in my head so here we are.
Having said that, I think I have already cheated by using Day 1 as the introduction post...

So why am I doing this?

At the start of the year I said I wanted to try and get more into blogging because when I do it, I really enjoy it. BUT I can never get myself into a schedule and so it's all very random when I do post. I try to do Sunday's but sometimes Sunday comes round and I'm just not feeling it so I lie in bed and think "I'm not moving today. I'll blog in the week instead." And then mid week rolls around and I'm too tired from work and think I'll do it Sunday and then the vicious cycle starts and I get bloggers block. I thought if I could challenge myself to post something everyday and see how that goes down, then I may be able to establish some form of schedule going forward.

I have drawn up a little calendar and planned what will be going live on what day. There is obviously a very healthy mix of beauty posts, sprinkled with some lifestyle and perhaps the odd dash of personal posts. On writing this introduction I still have four days blank so I'll have to see/hope I get some inspiration those days.

I'm determined to do this so hopefully you will come back each day to have a read. Please do leave comments letting me know how you feel about blog schedules - what do you prefer/how many times a week do you think is a reasonable amount of posts? Bearing in mind, I do have a full time job also.

With all that being said, I'll see you all back here tomorrow for Day 2 (and the first REAL post). Want a little spoiler? It's foundation related and the next of my Unsung Hero products...

21 November 2014


I have recently repurchased the Pixi Glow Tonic so I feel like I've definitely been using it long enough to share my thoughts...

I think knowing that I've repurchased this product shows that I am going to be giving this a good review and join in to the hype that already surrounds it.

16 November 2014


Why hello there lovelies! Sorry I have become a stranger once again. A mix of bloggers block and then getting really poorly. Not sure what happened to me but I got home from work one day and just had a turn and just couldn't get out of bed for a few days.
I'm feeling better now and I thought I'd treat myself with a little trip to Boots. I've not actually had a spendy moment for a while and being ill is the perfect excuse to change that!

26 October 2014


Ever since I was a lot younger I have been flicking through the Avon catalogue. Mum would always have one and I'd be obsessed with going through all the perfume pages and rubbing my wrists on the pages. And mum used to let me buy a face mask every so often from it and I probably thought I was the bees knees.
I still love having a look through the Avon when mum brings it home (her friend at work is a rep!). They have really great products and really affordable too. Their eyeshadow primer is my absolute favourite. I think it's £7 when it's full price but it always seems to have some kind of discount - I think mine was £4!

The other month I was dawn to the 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette in "Not So Neutral". It was £8 for 8 eyeshadows - bargain! - and the most perfect colours for me.
Avon can be a little off putting as you can only go off online or in a catalogue. You can't swatch so you have to hope for the best really. But I am in love with this palette..! Read on for the lowdown!

20 October 2014


I wore this makeup to my sister's birthday meal last week. I was going to upload in the week but then I got poorly and I ended up going out yesterday so today will do, I'm sure!

I recently bought one of the new L'Oréal red lipsticks and I'm absolutely loving it so here it is in action..!

12 October 2014


I've mentioned a few times in previous posts over the last month or so that I would give you a little update on my skincare routine.
I've done a big Sunday Night Routine post at the start of the year (though it's a little outdated now..) but this is what I do to my skin on an every day basis.

You may or may not be able to tell that I enjoy products from The Body Shop... Because I've definitely never mentioned it before... Ahem.
Their products are just really good and affordable and do their job. (They aren't paying me to say that but if they need a new cheerleader, then I am available...) 


5 October 2014


Time for another of my Unsung Hero products. You can see the others from so far in this series by clicking here.

Today's installment can hardly actually be called "unsung" especially in the beauty world, but I have never really sang my praises for it. So, enter The POREfessional...

2 October 2014


So, Summer is officially over for me. It had started getting cooler hear the last few weeks but I knew I was heading over to Greek island, Rhodes at the end of September so until that was over, it was still summer!

19 September 2014


Yep. It's that time already. Time for another season of Fashion Weeks across the globe to showcase the forthcoming season's new trends. I love what London have to offer. The designers just have something about them that the other fashion capitals just don't.

Having said that, I wasn't overly excited for kick off day this season like I usually am. Maybe as I'm struggling a lot to find clothes I actually like these days and I'm getting more into beauty? Who knows. I've never actually been to LFW. I just have to stick to the live stream over my laptop but one day I'd love to say I've actually been to a show.


Here's a look at my favourite collections from over the week...



17 September 2014


I've been subscribed to Birchbox for about half a year or so and one month I think I'll unsubscribe because it's been a bit disappointing but then I get a really good box the next month and feel I should hold off another month just in case...

September's offering landed on the doorstep a few days ago and its contents are bloody brilliant.

14 September 2014


Last weekend I was invited to my local The Body Shop for an event to celebrate the launch of their new Argan Oil range, as well as the brand new addition to the Colour Crush collection, the nail polish collection.

10 September 2014


My alarm goes off every week day at 6:50am. I then reluctantly open my eyes and turn on my local radio station. I then lie in bed flicking through Twitter for 15-20 minutes whilst listening to the morning's discussion and the news before getting up and ready for work.

This morning I was made instantly angry and needed to rant - so I will apologise now for how ranty this post gets. The question posed by the two male presenters this morning was "why do women wear make-up?". Now, I know from being a long time listener and the way they are that everything they were saying was not intended to offend and they genuinely seemed curious and the things they were saying were okay comments. HOWEVER... their main reasons for asking this question were that "men prefer women without the make-up" and "it must take up so much time!" (and they had some "statistic" of how many hours a year "women" spend putting on make-up.)
They get people to phone in to join in the discussion and everybody that did call in was female and the majority saying they don't because they prefer to spend longer in bed/have kids/no time/etc and some people saying they felt as though they had to wear make-up. To this one, the presenters being all nice and saying things about "natural beauty". This all being well and good but from those of us who suffer low self esteem, it comes across a little patronising.

The main vibe I was getting though was the whole "we prefer our women to not have make-up on"... oh, I'm sorry. Just wait a moment... Do you think I'm rocking this red lipstick and smokey eye for YOUR benefit? No.

Just no.

I'm pretty confident that I've never heard from anyone that they wear make-up to appease another person.

I love wearing make-up. I love buying make-up and trying new products and looks. I find it quite therapeutic and it can make me feel better and good about myself. And if something is making us feel good, why should we stop doing it?
I'm having a rubbish day, the weather is awful, I'm spending another 8 hours sat in an office so I'm going to put on some winged eyeliner and a bright pink lipstick because I can.

As for the radio males point of "but it takes so much time! Why spend all that time on make-up when you can be doing something else".... I generally do the whole primer, concealer, foundation, powder, brows, liner, mascara, cheeks and lips on a daily basis. If I wanted to, I could stay in bed an extra half hour and be done in 10 minutes flat. But I enjoy spending time getting ready.
I especially love Saturday morning, knowing I don't have to actually be anywhere by a certain time and spending 90 minutes getting ready at the same time as watching The IT Crowd on Netflix.

Another caller on the radio (a non make-up wearing female) came on air and stated "make-up gives you spots and I don't have any spots!!" Oh, well bulley for you... So you have normal skin type then. First of all, spots aren't always a sign of bad skin. You can get spots/acne even if you look after your skin impeccably. Factors such as hormones can cause breakouts regardless of make-up wearing or not.
I'm not saying make-up doesn't cause bad skin because obviously putting products on your face can clog up the pores and clogged pores is going to result in bad skin. BUT if you cleanse your skin correctly, morning and night, then hey presto! You should be properly cleaning your face twice a day regardless of putting make-up on it. You sweat (you do), you're outside where there's all kinds of pollution and dirt, your pillow is full of sweat and oils from your face and hair... you need to clean your face. A face wipe to take your makeup off isn't cleaning your face. You need to unclog your pores, get rid of dead skin cells, hydrate and repair those skin cells. (I'm going to do an updated skincare routine post soon, I think!)

I very much got the impression, and I do in everyday life too, that people who don't wear make-up feel the need to have to comment on the fact that others do and they seem to take this elitist approach over it. (Elitist people is my biggest pet peeve!) It doesn't happen the other way round though (as far as I've ever noticed...)
As far as I'm concerned, anybody should be okay to wear make-up for whatever reason they want and not have to be commented on by other people. If you don't want to wear make-up, then don't. If you do, then do. If you want to wear make-up because you don't like to not wear it, that is more than okay. If you want to wear big eyelashes and highlighted cheekbones to go to the supermarket, then you do it!

Do what you want, wear what you want, look however you want to. You are wonderful whatever you choose.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you get as angry as I did when people make these throw away comments? I'd really love to read everyone's thoughts on this!

Thank you

Slight delay on getting this up but last weekend I headed down to my local shopping centre in Preston, Fishergate Shopping Centre, where there was a Beauty Bar set up with a few of the centres stores and brands including Debenhams and Lush.

31 August 2014


I short while ago I did a post called "Let's Talk Cleansers" and last year I did a similar post on eyeliner so today it's the turn of the concealers...

22 August 2014


I love beauty bloggers. I love reading their opinions, seeing new launches and swatches and how they look after their skin and apply makeup. I'm in nowhere near the standard of some of those guys, this is just a bit of fun for me. But those beauty bloggers are the biggest enablers around - so I guess, blogging is essentially doing it's job!

My Bloglovin and YouTube subscription list is full of the people who only have to say one good thing in a very short amount of time and I'm straight down the shops. So here's my pick of  Beauty Blogger Enabled Purchases...

I typed that title and then got Mrs Weasley in my head from Chamber of Secrets when the Weasley boys bring Harry back to the Burrow...

So... hello.

Ended up on an accidental blog break, didn't I? 

22 July 2014


One thing I did not need: a new handbag. One thing I bought: a new handbag. OOPSIE.

Well, I kind of need a new bag. I've had a bag in my head for so long. I like black bags, with a long strap and I really wanted one with compartments á la last year's Zara City bag. I've been looking everywhere but I just couldn't find one. Primark used to have an apparent dupe for the Zara one but as much as I love Primark, you do get what you pay for and I knew it wouldn't last me (and my store didn't get them anyway).

But I finally found what I was looking for and in Marks & Spencer of all places..! I don't shop in M&S. I don't even go in by choice. My friend dragged me in because she wanted tights and I just spied it and I ended up buying it.

So with a new bag, what better time than to do an updated "what's in my bag?"...
