YSL Rouge Volupte: Number 1, Nude Beige

I finally caved!

I purchased my first YSL lipstick. Of course I wanted to start with the famous Rouge Volupte range. After toying for months about the idea of buying Lingerie Pink as it seemed like the "it" colour to have, I went and looked at it in Debenhams, and wasn't too sure it suited my skin tone.

After more research online, my mind was set on number two "Sensual Silk", but then randomly when it came to ordering, I changed my mind at the last minute and put number one "Nude Beige" into my basket. And I am so glad I did.

Nude Beige is a lot pinker than I expected (this is a good thing) and I fear Sensual Silk would have been too nude.

I believe I have found the happy medium between the two afore mentioned lippies, and I am happy, happy, happy!



The lipstick is just beautiful, inside and out.


After resisting this range for so long, due to their high price range, I am glad I finally decided to treat myself. After all whats the halm in wanting the beautiful things in life?!

What are your favourite YSL shades?

My new love...

Everybody...Meet the new loves in my life...

kurt geigers

If you follow me on Twitter, you may remember me Tweet-Piccing these babies a few weeks ago on the day that I bought them, because I was terribly excited about them.

These, my friends are my brand new most favourit-est shoes in the whole entire world!

They are by Kurt Geiger and I originally fell in love with them back at the end of Feb.

Nicola and I had just been to the Witch Skincare Event in Soho and afterwards we hot-footed it to Harrods so that I could get my Mum's birthday present. After the pressie had been purchased it would have been rude not to have a browse.

First stop, shoe department. I spied these bad boys from a mile off and instantly fell in love. For weeks after I dropped massive hints to my boyfriend that I would like them for my birthday (yeah, my birthday isn't until September, but still). I even took my Mum to Kurt Geiger and made a point of pointing them out.

Then randomly one day a couple of weeks ago, Jack and I were out shopping (well I actually needed to take a few things back) and I went and had a look at them once more, this time deciding to try them on. And that was it, as soon as they were on my feet, I HAD to have them. They were meant to be mine.

So I just said to the sales assistant, "I'll take them". I was physically shaking as she rung them up on the till and I was entering my pin. Jack's words to me were, "you're buzzing aren't you?"

It was the most extravagant, random, spur of the moment purchase I have ever made (other than gifts for other people), but I had not long received my first pay cheque from my new job, and I thought, why not? I earned it. So that is what I did.

The shoes have had two outings already, and I love them, I also love the attention they attract - I let the shoes do the walking ;)

What do you think?

Are you a massive shoe lover like me?

Umberto Giannini Travel Size Products

I couple of weeks ago I was contacted and asked if I would like to review any of the Umberto Giannini mini travel sized products.

Of course, with all the Bank Holiday weekends we have had recently and with lots of summer trips coming up I said I would love to. Travel sized products are also a great idea for when I stay at my boyfriends house, they are easy to just throw in my bag, don't take up very much space and will last you through quite a few nights away from home.

I was sent three products:
