My Favourite Looks From The Look Show September 2010

I am back today with my favourite looks from each High Street Store at The Look Show ♥

Dorothy Perkins

I love this look the most as i love all three items. The Fur coat is amazing and MUST be mine at some point throughout the winter. The clog boots are gorgeous and right on trend at the moment. The blouse is super dainty and cute and could be worn dressed down with jeans or hareem pants or dressed up for a night out with shorts and boots.

All items can be found Here at the Dorothy Perkins website.


I am not usually a fan of Marks&Spencer's clothes but i have to admit i love this look. The body is super sexy and again could be worn dressed up or down. I think wearing it with a really plain vintage looking caramel colour coat really gives the look and edge to it. I also love the colour of the leather gloves...gorgeous!

All items can be found Here at the Marks&Spencer's website.


With this look the jacket just stood out to me straight away. I love it, its so striking. I love that black leather is going to be huge this winter however i just don't like the style of this shirt. However pairing the jacket with a black leather shirt i think looks amazing i just think it should have been a body con black leather skirt.

All items can be found Here at the Oasis website.

French Connection

Again i chose this look as my favourite because of the jacket. I just love the all over abstract sequin design. I love that the jacket has been paired with a bodysuit i just would defiantly not be showing my legs off so much!! I also just adore the necklace its such a bold statement necklace!

All items can be found Here at the French Connection website.


How adorable is the hat?? I promise the hat isn't the only reason i choose this look as my favourite!!
All the accessorise are stunning but i love Monsoon jewellery anyway. Now to the dress...stunning right? I think i am going to love sequins this season. This dress would be perfect for any Christmas parties or even New Years Eve!

All items can be found Here at the Monsoon website.

River Island

I just love both of these dresses so i had to pick two favourites for River Island. Both dresses are must haves on my wish list! I'm not too sure about the hat below but i do also love the shoes above and the gorgeous delicate bow belt.

All items can be found Here at the River Island website.


H&M is defiantly one of my favourite high street stores. I actually used to work for them for around 2 years and i miss it so much! I think they have really upped their game in the last few months and have bought out some stunning everyday staples. Just like this cardigan. I love big chunky long cardigans in the winter and the colour of this one is perfect. It can be worn in so many different ways and i love it has been broken up with what looks to be a rope belt. I wish i had the confidence to rock some knee high socks!!

All items can be found Here on H&M new online store.

New Look

The underwear set is just so pretty however once again i did pick this look for the jacket. I am just loving all these different abstract short jackets/blazers. They just make an outfit i think. The satin heels are also stunning and very different..something i wouldn't normally wear.

All items can be found Here at New Looks website.


I love jumpsuits and think they are very flattering. I just love how low this jumpsuit is and the gorgeous gold detailing is a bit on the expensive side but i think it would be totally worth it.

All items can be found Here at Warehouse website


I love everything about this look. My favourite is the big gold cuff and the satchel bag. I love the off red/orange colour of the blouse i think it is really unusual.

All items can be found Here at Mango website.


I don't usually like to wear stripes but i just cant help but love this top. I don't think the picture does it justice..on the catwalk it just looked so striking and such vivid colours. The cream knitted aran skirt gives the look a real vintage feel.

I hope you liked my favourite looks!

What are your favorite looks?

The Look Show ♥

As promised i am going to share with you some photos from The Look Fashion Show and also some footage of the Catwalk itself. I'm sorry this has taken me a while to get up but what with working shift work post's do get delayed :) I hope you enjoy it all anyway!

So if you have seen my most recent OOTD post then you will already know that i was lucky enough to be invited to The Look Fashion Show!

I was invited by the gorgeous girls over at Jergens!
 Jergens were actually one of the sponsors for the show.

As a little treat for all the guest's Jergens had a team going round offering hand massage's with your choice of Jergens hand cream!

I have to admit although i look very happy in this picture i was secretly falling was soooo relaxing!!
Or was i secretly smiling as Callum Best had just walked past as i was having my massage haha

As well as Jergens being sponsors for the show Office were as well and here are some pictures of Office show casing some of their gorgeous shoes!!

Look Magazine had also set up a Look Show Photo Booth ♥

Which of course myself and Angela had to take advantage of *tehe*
We couldn't quite get the hang of it though as you can kind of tell so the pictures are a little all over the place haha! We had fun though X

Now onto the best bit...the Catwalk Show :)

I took footage of the show itself and i have done some rubbish editing but hopefully you will all enjoy this!
I unfortunately missed Dorothy Perkins as i was taking pictures at the time but they were failing miserably so i decided just to film the whole show instead :)

I hope you enjoyed that and spotted some pieces which you like. I loved a lot of the looks from the show so in a separate post i will put up some of my favourites.

I had such an amazing day it was so much fun. I got to see lots of celebs like Callum Best, Martine Mccutcheon, Danielle Lineker, Shanye Ward, Joe Mcelderry and many many more!

To top off the day Diana Vickers performed three of her latest singles which was amazing ♥

I would just like to say a HUGE thank you to Angela and the team at Jergens for inviting me to this amazing event X

Keep an eye out for pictures of my two amazing goody bags and also my favourite looks from the show.

Did any of you guys go to the Look Magazine Fashion Show?

Britney Spears-Radiance ♥

Hi Everyone ♥

Hope you are all well and having a good week so far.

Now i know you all have probably seen a million and one post's on Britney Spears new fragrance Radiance however i just wanted to put my two penny's worth in as i do really really love it!

So i was pretty excited when this got delivered yesterday as i am a Huuge fragrance fan. Maybe one day you may see my collection but i do plan to post my Autumn/fall favourite fragrances.

Anyway when i first looked at the packaging i did think it was a little tacky but the more and more i looked at it i did seem to love the tacky-ness about totally fits Britney's perfumes. Radiance is packed in a bold and girly, light blue and pink bottle covered with fake rhinestones!!

I am a fan of Britney's perfumes i have to admit..i have Fantasy, Believe and Curious! They all smell gorgeous and girly and are such a reasonable price.

So this is the 9th perfume in Britney Spears Fragrance Line by Elizabeth Arden!

2006-Midnight Fantasy
2006-In Control Curious
2007-Curious Heart
2007- Believe
2008-Hidden Fantasy
2009- Circus Fantasy

Have any of you guys tried any of Britney's fragrances?

What They Say:

Luscious berries and dewy petals unfold to reveal a radiant heart of luminous
pure white flowers, lit from within by the glow of precious amber, woods and sexy musk!

For me this is something totally different for Britney Spears fragrance line. Most of her perfumes are very very sweet and smell a lot like sweets in a bottle. This is a lot more fresh and musky. To be honest it reminds me a lot of Curious. The main notes in this perfume are wild berries, soft dewy petals, tuberose, jasmine, orange flower, iris, cashmere woods and luminous amber. 

This could possibly be one of my new favourite has just the right about of sweet and musky so its not too over powering. I wore it at work all day yesterday and could smell it on me all day.  


Britney Spears Radiance is available at Boots Here TODAY!!!  It is exclusive to Boots only and has just been released today!

£28.00 for 50ml

So go grab yourself a bargain!!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Colour Swatches.

Hi Everyone.

Hope you are all having a great week so far.

So whilst i was in CVS in Las Vegas i was literally about to pay when i spotted a stand with these bad boys on lol!!

Two gorgeous fall/winter colours and one must have summer colour..which seemed perfect at the time as i was in Las Vegas but now i am back in this rubbish weather it doesn't have such a summer glow to it anymore :(

These are Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Colour.
In the UK i believe we only have Sally Hansen nail treatments which i love but not nail colours..correct me if I'm wrong!

These are three really gorgeous colours. The price caught my eye, the names caught my eye and the brand caught my eye. I have come home and i love them even more..the staying power is spot on, same with the formulation, they are super easy to work with and you could get away with just one coat...perfecto!!

Now let me show you the colours..



04-Blue Me Away...THE perfect summer colour right?!?

At only around $3-$4 i wish i had picked up more.
Any of my US followers use and love these?

I then of course couldn't walk away with out getting something else which caught my eye from Sally Hansen!

Mega Shine-Extended Wear Top Coat.
This claims to keep you manicures beautiful for up to 10 days!!

I haven't yet tried this but i am extremely excited to..sad hey? For some reason i do remember seeing this in our UK drugstores but i could be totally wrong never the less i wanted to give it a go..who doesn't want a mirror effect on their nails??

Anyone got this and have any reviews on it so far?

I will let you guys know what i think once i have used it ♥

Sephora&M.A.C Vegas Haul ♥

Hi Everyone.

Its Friday tomorrow eeeee :) I actually have Friday&Saturday off this week!! Very Happy!

So up next for my Las Vegas post's is a Sephora and M.A.C Haul..only a diddy one but all items i love ♥

Sephora was only a short walk away from my hotel, in fact it was opposite at Planet Hollywood..perfecto hey?!

I took two trips to Sephora, first i came away with nothing :( Due to everything i wanted being out of stock. It was a prime location for a Sephora as it was in the middle of the strip so its understandable. So the one of the girls who was helping me said i should head down the The Venetian Hotel as there is one right outside. Obviously i trotted down dragging the boy with me haha he doesn't mind really...we wanted to see The Venetian hotel anyway lol!

Voila..this is what i walked away with ♥
Minus one :( As i started to write this post i realised i missed something out so that will be added at the end!

Urban Decay Naked Palette
I know you have all seen this a million times in the last few weeks so won't say much about it but be sure to keep an eye out for swatches or looks created with the palette!


Dior Amber Diamond Highlighter
Again you have all seen this a fair few times but my pictures really don't do it justice its such a gorgeous highlighter. It doesn't have too much glitter it just gives the most amazing glow!


Dior Show Brow Style
I had heard lots of great reviews about this before i left so it had to be mine. It is a universal brow styler, it is so fine so you can create gorgeous eyebrows or just fill in!


Next up was M.A.C! It was actually a M.A.C Pro located in Caesars Palace Forum Shopping Centre!

M.A.C Cream Colour Base in Pink Shock

M.A.C Lipstick in Of Royalty(cremesheen) from the Fabulous Felines Collection


M.A.C Pink Nouveau ♥ Has needed to be mine for a long long time!! Amazing bright vivid pink

How could i forgot this?!?

Sephora Professional Bronzer/Powder Brush
Something to do with that i have been using it everyday since..i love this brush hence why it is dirty..I'm sorry!

So that's it for now lovelies.

I hope you liked everything i got..whats your favourite item from Sephora? I would love to know!
