DRESS LIKE... ASHLEY ROBERTS

I was never a Pussycat Dolls fan but since Ashley Roberts appeared on I'm A Celebrity a couple of years ago, I fell a little bit in love with her. It's been almost a year since my last Dress Like... post! Sorry about that. But here is a new one featuring the beautiful Ashley.

SEVEN DEADLY SINS TAG

I am blogging today from my bed where I am drowning in snotty tissues (thanks for sharing, Louise. You are welcome) so I thought I'd do something a little different and do the Seven Deadly Sins tag that I found when I stumbled across Victoria's blog (which I got way too into reading!) So, here goes...

1. GREED: What is your most expensive and inexpensive beauty item?

As much as I'd love to be able to buy higher end products sometimes, I just cannot justify it. I think the Urban Decay Naked 3 is the most I've spent on one item. So incredibly worth it too.
As for inexpensive, I have a couple of MUA lipsticks that are brilliant and are only £1!

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

GEL EYELINER. I want to love it and get on with it and when I get a new pot I feel like it's the best thing since sliced bread but then I just make a mess everywhere. 

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

Haha! There's an ELF lipstick I have in the shade Fearless and it smells INCREDIBLE. Like strawberry and it tastes like it a little too. And a massive shout out to Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush Body Wash. If it (probably) wouldn't kill me, I would drink that stuff. The most greatest smell of them all.

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?

Do tweezers count? Like because I have a fringe I just think "meh, noone can see my brows so noone needs to know how out of control they are!" and then my fringe gets to a stage where it's too long that it just parts everywhere (currently at this stage). It usually just gets to a point when tweezers won't even save me and I have to head to the Brow Bar.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Well obviously, you cannot beat a good, bold red lip! I really love Revlon's matte lipstick in Really Red. And I love MAC's lipsticks. Despite currently only owning two, they make me feel great. Also, ELF's HD Powder is always a great confidence boost. It makes the skin look completely flawless and feel so soft.

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Not really beauty related... :') 
It's all about good teeth, beautiful smile and a strong jaw bone!

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

I'm not very good at receiving gifts. I feel guilty like I don't deserve them. (I know, I'm odd.) HOWEVER, for the sake of the tag, I would be delighted with the likes of a Tom Ford lipstick or a Chanel nail polish.


Hope the little bit of a different post has been okay! Let me know if you do this tag too so I can have a read.

WISHLIST #8

I haven't done a wishlist post since last October! Crazy! So, seeing as I got a pay rise this week, let us change that...






Last time I bought a MAC lipstick I settled on Rebel which I LOVE but it was between that and Diva and ever since I really wish I'd just bought them both. Clearly going to cave and end up buying this soon...
Spring is coming and pastel nails are EVERYWHERE. This colour is beautiful!
I confess I have literally just click order on the bag. It's one of those multi compartment bags á la Zara's City Bag. I've eyed that up for so long but I can't justify the price right now. Hopefully this one will suit just as well.
Shirt, collar, burgundy? Triple check with the added bonus of sheer panels. Simple; need.
The trousers are something of a shock for me to like but there's something about them. I know I wouldn't end up wanting to wear them. I'm more comfortable in plain and black! 
See the skort... this is also á la Zara. I actually tried this on a couple weeks back and really liked it then. My birthday is coming up so maybe I need to treat myself. 
These shoes are so cute! Perfect colour for Spring and lovely to wear to work too. My only problem is that Dorothy Perkins shoes just don't fit me. I used to work on the shoes there and the 6's were always massive and the 5's just way too tight. Which is majorly sad because their shoes are great.
Last thing is the Zoeva 104 Buffing Brush. I've heard a lot about Zoeva brushes and I was pleasantly surprised to see how cheap they are!

What are you lusting after at the moment?

HOW MUCH IS MY FACE WORTH?

I've seen this tag on Youtube a lot and I thought it would be interesting to see how much I spent on my "everyday" face. I'm a drugstore girl. I can get everything I need from Boots and Superdrug but I have had a couple of splurges. We all need to treat ourselves though!

OOTD: MINT + GREY

I very rarely do an outfit post and then all of a sudden there's two in a row! I had a couple holiday days left to take at work so I booked off the start of the week (which was an excellent decision! No Monday Blues over here.) I recently picked up these leggings/treggings/whatever letter you want to put in front of 'eggings' and I actually love them. It turned out to be a hell of a lot warmer than it seemed when I went outside so I have since ended up in a tee!

OOTD: SPRING IS COMING

Yesterday I went to Manchester with my friends where we went to a World Buffet called Peachy Keens (which was delicious!) and then we headed to the arena to see Jack Whitehall. I think it was about the 5th time I've seen him since 2009 and he was as hilarious as ever.

OSCARS 2014: BEST DRESSED

The 86th Academy Awards took place last night were Gravity came up trumps and another disappointment face from Leo. (One day, baby. One day...)

One of the biggest and most prestigious award shows in the world, so the stars enjoy a bit of dress up and here's who I think totally nailed it this year.

Lupita Nyong'o has absolutely dominated awards season. She's looked perfect on every red carpet. Absolute goddess. She got her mitts on a custom made Prada gown as well as Best Supporting Actress last night.

AN ODE TO THE BODY SHOP

The Body Shop has very quickly become one of my favourite high street stores. I've only really started using their products over the last six months but I have become a woman obsessed. My skin type is fairly normal most days with odd dry patch days but my main problem is blemishes. I've found since using their products my skin has really changed and is looking so much better.
