New In

January 31 2014

Ahh yellow. What a cheerful colour!

Here a few bits I’ve bought recently. I was feeling like my wardrobe needed and injection of colour! 
This lovely jumper is from French Connection’s new collection. I love the ribbed detail, it’s great layered with a plain white shirt, and light enough to wear in the spring!
The platform heels are a steal from Topshop’s January Sale, down to £10 from £56… will be rocking these when the weather warms up a little, or maybe on a super brave day this winter! Ha!
I also picked up some makeup from MAC, a new pink lippy (loving pink lips!), highlighter for my cheeks and my favourite night out lashes! Also wanted to try the Real Techniques Starter Set, I already have the Core Collection Set which I really love, so wanted to give this one a go!
The hat you can just about see, is a new one from H&M. (Worn here!)
