The shoes above are what I would describe as “Sexpensive" - Sexy but Expensive! Tried them on at Ms Selfridges…Ultimately, I couldn’t justify the £50 price-tag, so I had to [begrudgingly] walk away..

The silver lining in this story, however, is that I went to New Look after the fact and found the below pair of shoes for less than half the price!! Yeah, I admit they don’t ooze sex appeal NEARLY as much but I like to think it was a happy compromise and a much smarter use of money….They still make me feel sexy and confident, just slightly less than £50 worth of sexy…

Got a £75 giftcard for xmas to Boots [very….useful…i guess….] Managed to spend £63 in one go. Most of it was mine :X  

Above is some of the beauty products I bought…My husband suggested I buy perfume but I went for one of the cheapest bottles Boots sells unintentionally, i just liked that smell best…

Giving the Rimmell Scandaleyes liquid liner a try for the first time — WIll let you know how that works out.

Since I last had a chance to update, I’ve done a bit of re-organizing…

We redid the bathroom just before my parent came to visit on their first trip to the UK and, therefore, needed a new/smaller mirrored cabinet to make the place a bit less claustrophobic. Instead of trashing out really nice IKEA cabinet, i bought some stick on hooks and turned it into an accessory cabinet which we now keep in the spare room [aka my massive walk in closet hahaha - jokes..i wish!]. Also, I needed a better solution for my nail polish and accessories and realized I barely ever used the holder I bought for the cleaning supplies. It ended up making a swell organizer that can be carried from one room to the next. 

I thought it was rather clever at least…

Discovered the wonder of lush [finally!] a few months back and also a fun way to display it. This large jar has a rubber seal that keeps the moisture out so that it can be displayed in the bathroom without ruining the integrity of the product.

To keep in line with the Moroccan/headwear themes — here’s my jingly headpiece [pardon my exhausted, non-makeup’d face and lack of haircut]. Always wanted to buy one of these but I can confirm that now that I have it, I haven’t actually worn it once since taking this pic…I need to get out more!

Love my Moroccan-themed beach cover up [£5]…Now just can’t wait until a gorgeously warm day that my husband and I BOTH have off so I can actually wear it!  —  The pup loves trying to eat the puff balls off. I think she knows that I like it and therefore she’s attracted to destroying it!

The best custom shoe work!! I don’t think I could’ve possibly dreamt of something cooler! Design is based on the cover to one of my favourite comics called Scarlet. Done on a pair of natural-color Toms by https://www.facebook.com/customkicksbgorski
Just getting around to uploading them to here [as noticed, I haven’t been on Tumblr in AGES]. But he makes AMAZING works of art and it’s worth checking out all his other amazing designs and supporting if you can
If not for you, they make an amazing gift for someone you care about….And he seems to be willing to try any idea, no matter how obscure!

Another Primark special….As much as I know everyone and their mother rock Primark, I don’t think it should be a shameful thing…I bought this sweater with what appears to be a Gatsby inspired look to it. It was under £10 and the champagne colour matches almost any colour pallet

Went looking for a fancy raincoat, but settled with this for £9. It might have be solely because it folds into its own pocket to form a wristlet so that you can bust it out when weather is crappy…..Also, it has cute little umbrellas on it ^.^

Cute little royal blue/white sparrow sun dress. Got it at a bargain price [under £20]. Served me well so far…
