Two Casual Work Outfits ~ CatchAnEye

workwear.jpgAt work I am lucky enough to be able to wear my own clothes, for a fashion lover thats huge bonus! As you can probably guess I have to wear dark colours and seeing as our colour theme is purple I take full advantage in adding a pop of colour.

Outfit 1

  • Jumper – Newlook
  • Skirt – Newlook
  • Necklace – Newlook
  • Tights – Primark
  • Boots  – Newlook

I went a bit crazy in the Newlook sale…. :/

Outfit 2

  • Cardigan – Newlook
  • Collared Top – Topshop (I love it, I now need it in every colour!)
  • Leggings – Topshop
  • Boots – Primark

I got a lot of this in the sale but I have linked everything that I can still find 🙂

Have a beautiful day! xxx

Is that a new dress? !

IMG_3956Good afternoon! 

Recently I have been LOVING eBay..maybe a tad too much…Anyway! I found this gorgeous aztec print dress from River Island for only £3 and couldn’t resist it! I wasn’t sure if this shape would suit my body type but I love it! The material is really thick, amazing quality and I love the pocket detailing.

March Favorites // CatchAnEye

IMG_3379So I haven’t blogged in over 2 weeks.. I’m not going to make any excuses about excessive work because the truth is..I have been lacking so much motivation! However I am back!

Lets get on with it! March has been a really nice month in beauty for me! I have run out of a lot of things and have been trying new things!

 

 

Sleeping-Beauty-Wallpaper-sleeping-beauty-6259616-1024-768but first….Memory Foam!

I could not leave this out of my March favorite. The other half and I were really struggling with sleeping, back aches and just general groggy-ness when we wake up. We decided to splash out and purchase a new memory foam mattress and King size bed frame! I am in love.. I really do struggle to roll out of bed now. 100% recommend memory foam. It can be slightly pricey but if you do your research you can find one on eBay for under £100.

 

 

 

NailsIMG_3386

Moving swiftly on to the beauty side of things. I have been loving Barry M’s Gelly nail paints. In particular I am really enjoying Pomegranate. It is a bright pinky red. Almost coral. I’ll be honest I am completely a dark nail kinda girl but recently I am been loving bright and pastel nails. It’s all your gorgeous Spring pictures you have all been posting on WordPress!

 

Makeup

IMG_3380Now Spring is here I am all about the dewy fresh finish! I recently purchased MUA’s new highlighting powder in Undressed. It’s a beautiful shimmer pink powder. It suits my pale complexion perfectly. However I think it would suit any skin tone really well!IMG_3385

 

 

Now this is my newest product..after giving into the blog hype of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Now I am not sure if you can get this out of the UK but it has answered all my concealer prays! It lasts all day and covers anything. I mean anything…

 

Hair Care

IMG_3381I have been trying out a new hair care routine. When I get it right you will be the first ones to know! MY hair is bleached, damaged and snapping off! Oh the benefits of being blonde!   I am currently trying out Redken’s Anti-Snap hair care line. I got a mini tester kit which comes with shampoo, conditioner and an anti-snap leave in serum. I am liking it! I haven’t noticed too much of a difference after 2 uses but it smells sooo good!!

 

Skin Care

Going to be honest my skin is appalling right now so I am not going to recommend anything but if you have any suggestions please do let me know!!

 

Body Care

garnier_body_oil_beauty_oil-infused_nourishing_lotion_250mlI have been liking the new body lotion, Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion. It doesn’t leave me feeling sticky and I can get dressed straight away. I have noticed that I itch a lot less now and I have a suspicion this is to thank for it! Only down fall…it smells funny!

 

FashionIMG_3388

There are some exciting fashion trends coming out this Spring and Summer! Including pastels, daisy print and bright splashes of colour. My favorite for this March is PRIMARK! There are some amazing pieces coming out this Spring including this little beauty..I could not resist it!! I am still trying to figure out how to style it but I am determined to wear it to college tomorrow to brighten up my day in that dull classroom!

 

Scents

IMG_3387I almost forgot about this! My new Spring scent is Katy Perry’s Killer Queen perfume.

Top Notes: Dark Plum, Wild Berry and Bergamot.
Heart Notes: Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria and Natural Jasmine Sambac.
Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline
I don’t know what it is about the combination but it is just perfection for me! Not going to lie the bottle is really pretty too!

So this post is very varied! Do let me know if you prefer that or would just like me to stick to a certain topic like fashion or makeup. 

Big Haul! Topshop~eBay~Dresslink.com~Lush

IMG_3080

Hey there! So I’m still feeling rather ill 😦 My parents came over today to see how I was and to bring over my long-awaited online orders! It was just like Christmas! You don’t realize how sales crazy you went until you  have 6 packages in front of you! I love absolutely everything that I got!

Dresslink.com – This is an online website situated in China. The clothes and accessories are super cute and so affordable! I recommend it to everyone! The styles are up to date and there is something for everyone. My package took around 15 days to arrive which isn’t bad at all! I paid around £9 for the postage but considering how much money I saved I think it still works out very affordable!

IMG_3066I’ll start with the accessories! First I got these rings. They com

e in different shapes, sizes and colours! They also have tiny words on them such as ‘free’, ‘courage’ and ‘hope’. They are just great to add a little something to a simple outfit! They were £1.23 for 8 of them

IMG_3069Next up are they bow earrings. At only £1.10 they were a complete bargain and I,m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot!

Finally for accessories is this necklace. This is my favorite! It says Happily Ever After and it has gorgeous charms on it! It only cost £1.58 which is amazing value!IMG_3068IMG_3072

IMG_3071As for clothing, I was also super impressed! I got two black jumpers, manly for work. The first one has bat wing sleeves and amazing stud and chain detailing on the shoulders. It was £7.31. 

IMG_3073The next is just an over-sized jumper which is perfect to wear with leggings. This one cost £3.71! They are both super soft and warm. Great quality! I will defiantly be getting them in different colours next time I place an order!

Last but certainly not least is this grey jersey dress with detailing at the bottom. It’s a stretchy material so super comfy. It also fit really well and is very flattering. Another perfect little number for work! This cost me £5.53.

One thing I would say is be careful about the sizing as it is mostly one size fits all!IMG_3074IMG_3075

Topshop – I only picked up a couple of bits from Topshop.

IMG_3078The first one being this gorgeous purple hat. It’s still bloody freezing outside! I love my hats and this is the perfect one to add to my collection! I love the colour, I love the style and I love the fur bobble on top! Unfortunately I can’t find it on the website anymore but if your lucky enough you might be able to find it in one of their stores. This was £7IMG_3079

Next up I picked up this faux leather skirt. It’s just about knee-length and I think it will go with so many of my other clothes. Again I can’t find it online but have a look in your local Topshop store! This was also £7

eBay – One of my favorite “hobbies” if you can call it that??

You know iv been dying to get some beige ankle boots and I found some! These beauties are from Miss Selfridge, they have gorgeous gold hardware and studs and I got them for £10.99 INCLUDING POSTAGE! What! They are brand new, never been worn. So keep your eyes peeled for some steals like this!IMG_3076

Lush – I am constantly browsing on the website but I can’t help think it’s slightly overpriced! Don’t get me wrong I love Lush, who doesn’t? After Christmas they had there Christmas stock at half priced so I ordered a couple of things.

Firstly I got Shoot for the stars bath bomb. It smells like…honey and vanilla to me..I think! It’s an odd smell but very yummy! Try and get your hands on it next Christmas!

Next I got another lip scrub in Santa’s lip scrub. Again pick this one up next year! It’s a lovely rich red colour and smells like straight up cola!! When you first open it, ithas tiny red hearts on the top which I think is a lovely touch! In-depth review coming soon!

Lastly I  came across this hair treatment for blondes and thought I would give it a whirl! It’s called Marilyn. I’m not so keen on the smell or the texture but I’ve heard good things about this stuff! I’ll do a review on it when I have been using it for a week or so! Watch this space! This cost me £8.95, slightly pricey! IMG_3077

That’s all! I hope you enjoyed and I’d love to see what you got in the sales! I have linked everything that I can. I would just like to add that the prices may vary now as I did get them on sale a couple of weeks ago!

Have a beautiful day! xxx
