Wrapped in pink - OOTD

I bought this dress forever ago from New Look but hadnt worn it all too often.
I debuted it first on my birthday in July...


So I decided to give it an outing to work to brighten everyones day up.




On my lips is a lip liner from Barry M in colour #113. It's my current go to colour for barbie pink lips.
And with this dress and my hair looking so bright, barbie lips were just the cherry ontop of a great outfit day!


I wore my fave necklace from Simply Be to give it some shiny magpie sparklyness.
My cardigan is from Tesco via Rachel. 
And my bag is from Simply Be too.
I later added some sequin'y fish scale nail varnish from Essence called Million Dollar Baby
I do so love this top coat. I wore it with 3 coats on its own because its just so fricking cool!

Light as a feather with Anticipat........tion

Ok ok ok so not so much anticipation but hey!

I recently got sent some bits from the lovely Abigail over at  GlitzAndBobs.
She picked out these two items for me and they're pretty on point if you ask me.


It came nicely packaged in this cute box with stickers and a really awesome company logo stamp.


Inside the box was loadsa shiny confetti and bits. The items were wrapped up nicely and there was a business card too.
Her business card is sop cute and dinky, I love it.


Even the inside of the box was stunningly decorated with a "made with love" stamp.


Abigail selected the Someday I'll Fly Away feather bracelet and a Dr Frank-n-Furter ring.


I absolutely adore this bracelet, I've worn it everyday since I got it. It's a really simple piece which really fits into my arm candy style. Im not so much a fan of having loadsa chunky stuff cluttering up my arms, this bracelet is the perfect size for me.


This ring is just everything for me! I've worn it a few times to work and over the weekend and get many comments. Mostly oooh's and aaah's. 

Have a look at GlitzAndBobs for your fill of kitsch, retro, cute goodies.

Ive spotted a few items perfect for Halloween too...



Thanks to Abigail for these pieces, I love them!

DegustaBox August

I got given a special deal to get a DegustaBox half price, so I decided to give it a go and see what it's like.
I had been waiting quite some time for this to arrive and it finally did, I was so super excited that I had to open it right away.

The Degustabox is a food and drink subscription much like the Graze Box, except bigger, MUCH BIGGER! 

Each box is filled with 9 - 14 "surprise products" which they say many of which are brand new to the market. 
Some are known brands, some not, but I am always up for a try of something new!

What I got in this box:

Portlebay Popcorn
Zeo Softdrinks
Green & Blacks chocolate bar
Hornsby's Cider
Dr Oetker cake toppers
Maggi bake in/cook in bags







So far I'm not convinced. I will however continue on and get my next box and once I've seen it's contents, I'll decide if its gonna be a continual thing. For £13.00 a month I wanna be wowed.

Have you tried these yet?

Bakerdays Letterbox Cakes

I was asked a little while ago by the lovely folks over at BakerDays if I'd like to try one of their cakes... NATURALLY I said yes!
Fat girls love cake right! But really, who could say no to a cake coming through their letterbox/slot!?!
I got it through the door one day after work and I was so excited to open it!
It came in a lovely tin, nice and secure inside a box small enough to fit through the mail slot in the door.
BakerDays is an online service which provides cakes of different size for delivery, also cupcakes.
You can pick different themes and even get specific designs on them.
I chose a spooky Halloween cake.
The cake is kept fresh and has an instruction tab on how to get the cake out the tin.
The box the cake comes in had a selection of flyers about the company, the cake tin, a card and some balloons!
Now onto the most important bit... how did it taste?
In a word, DELICIOUS!
I didn't know what to expect but I was really surprised.
The cake I had was nice and chocolatey, wasn't too dry and crumbly and the icing was yummy too!
This cake served 3 pieces between myself, mom and dad, but realistically it could have served 8.
I absolutely love this cake, Im going to order 2 halloweeny cakes for a halloween night at Daisy's place!
Thanks Bakerdays for sending a fat bird cake in the post, made my day!

Ebay Wishlist #5

I'm back at it again this week, it's eBay time!


Perfume
I am partial to buying some brand name perfumes, but I really am a cheap bastard so if I can get them at a good price, I like to try get them off eBay. 
Euphoria and Alien are my most favourites of the lot.

These blush's are super cute. I love the colours anyway but the packaging really sells it for me.
I love a bit of Korean beauty products, this seller has so many cutsie bits to peruse!  



We all know I love a backpack so this is no surprise. 
How friggin cute are these!

Cat shoes

Im not gonna lie, these are just YES!

Swimwear for your body shape


I little while ago I was asked for some input for a BonPrix article about swimwear for different body types.
Since its less than 3 months till my holiday to Cape Town, I'm looking all over for the perfect swimsuit/bikini for me.

Here are my (not so) wise words of wisdom.


The article can be found here.

I trawled through BonPrix's swimsuit section, here's my top picks...

Here's a holiday snapshot from my visit to Cape Town last year after a dip in the warm waters of Clifton 4th Beach.


Take a look at BonPrix for some great pieces.

Shake it like a polaroid picture!

I came across this company on facebook one day, thought it was a scam but for under £3 I figured I would give it a go.
And it worked just fine!

So FreePrints allows you to print 45 free images, you can log into facebook, instagram, or choose your own pictures from your phone, and all you pay is postage.

The photo quality reflects the quality of the picture you have chosen. So if its a grainy 1am club shot, it isnt going to be the best print.


They come double packed in a nice blue envelope and green photo envelope. 


They come in standard 4 by 6 inch size, but for a small cost you can choose to have larger prints.
I find the standard size fits fine for my needs.


If you take your pics directly from Instagram, you'll have a black side bar on either side of your image(seen below), these are easily cut off to create that Instagram square image.


I just cut along the outside of the actual image, I really love the square polaroid type photos, I love having these photos stuck up on my mirror. 



They do come in full size, I got a few pictures like this to keep for when I am 72, reliving the old days.
How cute are Daisy and I?

Have you ever used FreePrints?
