Me and two course friends helped out as Front Of  House at the Southampton Solent Graduate Fashion Show on Wednesday 22nd, sponsored by Capital and Illamasqua. We were pampered by make up artists before showing guests in, and getting to watch the show. (Credits to the students, having us sat there for four hours)

3   This weekend I have been away with my mum!

Since my birthday my mum had wanted to take me away for the weekend and spoil me but we've both been chocka busy until now. I have my wonderful mum to thank for a lovely weekend and some good retail therapy!

We went down to Chichester on Friday, went shopping and had dinner before a pampering eve in the hotel room. Then yesterday, we had a lovely breakfast and went to the beach at West Wittering, it was so warm and sunny and I'm so happy it changed over night like that. After being at the beach for a few hours, we drove to Portsmouth and did some shopping in the outlet. We then walked into the town centre.

We are going to Turkey in five weeks so the aim of the day was to really find holiday bits!

Here's my beauty buys...

The bottom bits, including the ring, toe rings, earrings and nose studs and eyelashes were from the Claires's outlet at Portsmouth Gun Wharf. They were offering 10 items for £10 on everything in store for the day only, what a bargain! The other bits were from high street stores.
For two days only Claire's were offering all nail polishes for £1! Inluding a variety of neons and pastels, and this new in Leather look polish which has a bobbly leather like texture. I can't wait to use it.

For £1 I couldn't turn away these eyelashes as I'm sure they'll look great for fancy dress one day and are so detailed.
So these toe rings were included in the 10 for 10 (Still can't get over that) which will look gorgeous with my new anklet from New Look (£3.99)
These ice cream pastel colours will look great alternated on holiday with tanned skin as well.

''She sells sea shells on the sea shore''

I love nail art, as my regular blog readers will have noticed! I spotted this Pastel Shell manicure set in Claire's, remembering they offer student discount. They are normally five pounds. You cover your painted nail in these shell pieces- such a pretty effect.

This is the effect on one of my nails. Gorgeous, and so quick and easy.
..... ''More shoes''.... ?!
Well, everytime I see dirty dancing I do wish for these pumps seen on Baby... Well guess what I've finally found DEAD similar in Primark !? It'd be rude not too....

My mum informed me that they cost just £1 from Woolworths in the 80's!

I have been eyeing these wedges up for ages in Primark, my friend got them a while back... They were reduced to £12 and are amaaaazeballs.


I needed some new flats for work, and these were on my New Look wish list. They do them in beige and black, but white are so smart and I love smaller aspects of monochrome. 



Lastly... Clothes!

H&M White Blouse £14.99

Primark Tie Die String Bikini £4

I love this tie dye print- an absolute bargain again at £4 for the set from Primark.
My mum also treated me to some Whittard's. At the outlet they were offering buy one, get one half price. So I couldn't say no since the White Hot chocolate is to die for. Try the Pear And Guava Tea cold for a refreshing Summery drink!
Here's a shot of the beach on Saturday!
And to top off my weekend, when I got back in Southampton today I got my monthly Elle to read and my freebie mascara, wooppeeee
