Colour Blocking

Heres some inspiration for the colour blocking trend;
 You could even colour block you make-up, what gorgoeus colours!!

 I cant wait to start mixing and experimenting with all the wonderful colours for spring/summer :)

Rodial glamtox eye light pen

Normally i wouldn't really buy something like this but i found it at a bargain price in my local Tk Maxx, so i thought what the heck i may aswell give it ago.
This item retails at £35.00 which i must admit it abit steep, there are similar item on the market from brands such as YSL. It claims to be an eye brightening concealer that erases any signs of fatigue and brightens the complexion. Although its an eye concealer it suggest on the box that you can use it in areas such as; hollow of the chin and contours of the nose.

I only used this under my eyes, i found that it did definitely brighten up my eyes but sometimes there just wasn't enough coverage for this to replace my normal concealer. The product is of a sheer liquid like consistency, which is dispensed using a click pen. You apply just a few strokes under the eye area, like a normal concealer.
Overall i do agree that it brightens up your eyes but i don't think i'd repurchase this, as i believe the retail price is to steep for what the product delivers. Although saying that there are many rodial products i would love to try, like the snake serum and boob lift. :)

 Love gabbie

A collective haul

These items are all from over the space of a few months, some are gifts and most of them i brought myself.
As I'm a student I'm in a small budget but with the likes of, you can often find many designer bargains! Here's a few piccies;

My favourite purchase , are these beauties a pair of prada sunglasses, I've been lusting of a pair like these for years but never been in a position to afford them. But thanks to ebay i managed to grab these for £40.00 wooo :)
But i word of warning there are many fakes items on ebay make sure you do your research for sunglasses read up about serial codes.

The maxi skirt, is a fab item for spring/summer. You can wear its whenever you want and its so easy to just chuck on, you bearly have to think about your outfit!

I just couldn't resist this, its a bluey purple colour and flows so elegantly and yet it was £12.00 from primark!! Love a bargain

The next item was a gift from my mother, she knew i had wanted a pair of these
for ages. They're Vivienne westwood globe earrings, there plain silver but because they are plain they will go with everything!!
