I’ve been feeling under the weather, but am now much, much happier after winning a Cloggs competition.
I had £100 to play with and it literally took me weeks to decide what to order with my voucher. I had always fancied a pair of Dr Martens but never felt brave enough! They are quite bold and I think they tend to give off a ‘goth’ vibe and I always felt they wouldn’t really go with my girly style. So, I toyed between Uggs, Dr Martens and other great brands on Cloggs until Christmas was fast approaching and I had to make a decision (I wanted something stylish to keep me warm in the snow).
During one of my weekly shopping trips to the amazing Primark, I discovered a stunning little cream dress amongst the rails of autumn items. I was drawn to it because it was a dress with long sleeves which I thought would keep me warm and look quiet classy. I picked up a size 8 to try on…
Wow…I can’t actually believe my luck! I have just found out that I am one of two finalists in a Rimmel London competition!
My task was to create a 30 second video showing my make-up tip for this Autumn/Winter, ahead of London Fashion Week. Well, I just know rusts, oranges and warm peachy colours will be in this coming season so headed down to the shops to pick up Rimmel’s newly launched Autumn Catwalk 3 in 1 blusher – perfect. It was hard to video this in only 30 seconds though….which is why I sound so rushed! I just had to add in the Heather Shimmer classic lipstick too! An old fave of most girls my age…the video doesn’t show it too well, but it realy does brighten up pale skin.
So, I have until midday Saturday 11th September to win! All I have to do is get the most LIKES on YOU TUBE! Here’s a link…http://bit.ly/9iyDfQ

Way back in May 2010 I was wandering around Leeds city centre on a sunny Saturday and thought i’d take a look in Warehouse. This isn’t a shop I usually visit, but as I walked towards the store I saw some lovely, bright colours that tempted me in. I was instantly drawn to a rail of maxi dresses and one in particular … the jungle maxi dress.
There was only one left….a 12, so even though I’m an 8/10 I thought why not try it on. Here’s a piccie of me in the changing room! It looked perfect from the front, but the back was way too big so I needed at least a 10.
Check out Topshops new look at The White Rose centre in Leeds. This once busy, fussy looking store has been transformed into a shopping treat for all young trend setters! There is a huge section for shoes which have been displayed perfectly. Oh, and a new make-up range…has anyone tried Topshop make-up yet?
I’ve been wandering around the high street stores recently to pick out some bargains to share with you all.
There are plenty to be had at The White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds. With a great range of shops from Debenhams to Zara and they all had something to offer when I visited at the weekend.
First of all, La Senza have a huge sale on right now with a huge range of bras for £5 plus some beautiful pants and thongs at 5 for £5!!! Definitely worth a trip…the underwear there is the best quality I’ve ever had and wash and wear really well. Just a little point to note on that though…the pants are rather small fitting so always buy the next size up…I find their medium fits perfectly and I’m a size 8!
Do you struggle to find the right jeans? The perfect fit coupled with on trend colour and style? Worry not people, I have found a new website that will help you on your quest! www.jeanealogy.co.uk
The thinking behind Jeanealogy is to take the pain out of buying jeans. They test the styles and brands that the magazines recommend, to see if they work for real women and report back giving the lowdown on the fit, quality and value for money.
