Style Icon

Lauren Conrad is one of my fave style icons. I think she always look stunning, whether she's frocked up or in jeans & a tee. Her make up is always simple & elegant, and her hair always neat. I think she always looks classy & appropriate. Here are some of my fave outfits.

I'm on a shopping ban... Really

Why is it that whenever your trying to save money, a million cute things pop up?! Christmas is also the worst time of the year to try and keep the savings in check, I have so many birthdays/presents & bills coming up. Getting paid monthly does not help at all :( I also need to learn to not buy things for myself this time of year, and instead put them on my Chrissy list & receive them as gifts instead... But when I decide I need to have something, I need it now! So these are hopefully my last purchases for a while...

Both dresses are Mink Pink and are from

Body Shop products - Hi-Glimmer Body Glaze in Nutmeg + Vanilla, Vitamin C Micro Refiner Exfoliator and Frosted Shimmer Lotion in Merry Cranberry. All products smell amazing! I actually went into The Body Shop for gifts and walked out with these things for myself.

True Blood was recommended to me by my friend
Monique, and I finished the first season in one weekend :) I am hooked already! I love Gossip Girl!

Mirrored jewellery box and perfume bottles for decoration.

And Lush goodies recommended to me by the lovely
Nikki. Angels on Bare Skin cleanser and Honey I Washed The Kids soap. Can't wait til they arrive!

And last but not least, a few products from MAC. Lipsticks in Hug Me and Patisserie (I've been lemming since seeing
Steph rave about them on her blog & decided to snap them up while they were in stock) and eyeshadow in Mylar. Lush & MAC goodies were online purchases so now I wait...

Phew! No wonder my savings are looking a little sad right now.

I hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas! I am looking forward to 2 1/2 weeks of relaxing/beach/friends/family/sales =)

The sun is shining

This weekend was beautiful, warm & sunny in the west! I had a fabulous weekend! Saturday included joining a new gym/doing a workout/getting pampered with a haircut & head massage/shopping/eating out with boyfriend, brother & his girlfriend, and Sunday shopping in town/picnic in the park/dinner at Sebastians Italian restaurant/and a movie.

I picked up two pretty dresses on Saturday. I have lived in this white summery dress since I bought it. It's the perfect dress to chuck on over a bikini & accessorize with a big hat & sunnies to wear to the beach. I have a Bardot dress exactly like this one shoulder dress, but it doesn't fit, so I was excited to see this one in Portmans. :) (Sorry about the picture quality, lighting is bad in my room and doesn't do the dresses justice!)
