Je suis à paris

My boyfriend and I are currently in Paris for a last minute break before we both start our second year of University on Oct 1st. I'll be back shortly so expect a plethora of Parisian themed blog posts soon!

Nipple Blush!

At last I've got my hands on another bottle of Benefit's Lip & Cheek stain. I don't like wearing lipstick because, quite frankly, I can't be bothered to continuously re-apply it! I also don't always like how strong the colour comes through, but with this, it not only doubles up as a rather great blush but it allows you to control the intensity of your lip colour according to occasion. It's great for giving a little bit of life to your lips during the day and then, when you're ready to put your heels on and paint paint the town red just apply a couple more coats of this fantastic lip stain and voilà... perfect sultry lips ;)


Oh and if you were wondering what the hell the post title was about... here's a little bit of interesting information as to the history of such a product. It was originally made not for your lips or even cheeks, but was made for your NIPPLES! It was to be applied to pink'en them and well, I guess... make them prettier? BIZARRE!

Spike up your life!

You gotta' love sheer black cut-off sleeve shirts, detail collars, spikes and well, more spikes! ... okay maybe that's just me then. Or is it?

These jeans are form Urban Outfitters, one of my favourite high street stores. They are known for their quirky street style pieces, but, even by their standards these are pretty unusual. A right bargain reduced from £50 to just £25! Did I mention I also love bargains?This necklace spices up any old outfit, and it seems it's no secret as everyone seems to be wearing them! Oh no they're on to me! Most would say it's a bit too much with my embellished collar, but who cares what most people think!? Certainly not me. The shoes, the shoes where do I start? Again some would say they're too much but they do me fine. There can never be too many diamanté's and spikes! (there really can be and even these are pushing the boat out a bit...but they're still hot to trot!)

Vows in Sicily

Toward the end of June my mother and I jetted off to Sicily for my cousins wedding. After almost a week of relaxing and topping up our tans, (as you can see, not much 'topping up' actually occurred) we had the pleasure of attending one of the most moving and beautiful weddings we've been to to date.

 I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking in this post, as I'm sure you will appreciate. The setting and most of all the happy occasion made for some fantastic shots...

Hope you enjoyed the photos! I may upload a more detailed outfit post sometime soon, so look out.
