New Things

Topshop Allegra Boots: I saw these in the Oxford Circus branch when they first came out and thought they were amazing. I thought I’d think about it and come back and try them on. Next thing I know, Lily writes about them and as usual, they are sold out everywhere! Nightmare! As soon as something is sold out I always want them even more. I finally found a pair in Brent Cross. The last pair available and in my size… fate! I wore these for the first time yesterday and I wouldn’t recommend them for lots of walking. I have blisters everywhere, but I still love them. 
Chanel Eclat Lumiere: I love the idea of a concealer like this, but my experience in the past hasn’t been great. I really dislike the Touche Eclat, despite the buzz. I think it smells like chemicals and is far too sheer to do anything for my dark circles. I am still a massive fan of my Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, but thought I would buy this Chanel concealer for my handbag. A lot of the time I go out after work and don’t want to bring in my normal concealer and brush – this is really easy just to brighten up under my eyes and cover any blemishes. It is really creamy and is the perfect shade for me. 
Stila Smudge Pot: I was very excited when I heard about Stila returning to the UK. My mum used to always use their cream blushes and I used to secretly use them when I was little. I went to Westfield yesterday and popped into Boots to see if they stocked it. I was with my boyfriend so couldn’t browse for long. I decided to get this grey smudge pot though, which I think will be very useful to do a smokey eye. 
Collection 2000 Extreme 24-hour Felt Tip Liner: I have been loving using my Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, but sometimes when I’m tired or in a rush, I want to use something a bit easier. This eye liner is great, it is literally just like using a felt tip. It lasts really well throughout the day and dries instantly. Let’s wait and see how long the product lasts for… 

I hope you guys have noticed that I have re-done my blog layout and design. Please let me know what you think! I think it definitely looks a lot cleaner and I have to thank my friend Faye for helping me with all the complicated HTML stuff! 

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! Wish me luck for the Look competition!

    Yay! 🙂 I didn’t think they were that uncomfortable! Did you wear socks?! x

  2. I have these and they are so evil to my feet. I keep hoping they will break in but no such luck yet. The only reason I havent got rid of them is because they look awesome!

    Lovely layout!
    I love the packaging of the Stila smudge pot and also the idea of this pen liner – I always get shaky when trying to apply liquid liner and this looks great for helping me with that!

    I always prefer the ‘clean’ layouts of blogs, easier to just focus on the content! those boots are gorge, chelsea boots are definatley the footwear to be seen in this season!

    I definitely want to try to find those boots, I actually thought they would be quite comfortable but maybe that was just wishful thinking!

    I love the blog – thanks so much. Re. eyeliner – exactly the same as you – I used to use the Bobbi Brown eyeliner but needed something quicker. I’ve just bought the new Nars eyeliner pencil which is just as good and very very longlasting. So good, in fact, I bought the grey, black and brown!

    I have also been trying to get hold of the black Allegra boots in size 7, but cannot find them anywhere. Does anyone know if they’re coming back in stock or if there’s a similar pair anywhere else?

    Many thanks
