Holiday, celebrate!

Hi Guys!
Sorry I have been AWOL for a wee while but my mum booked us a last minute cruise around the Aegean sea. It was my first time cruising and I really enjoyed it. It was nice to wake up every morning in a different place with new things to see and do. We stopped off at Corfu, Santorini, Bodrum, Kusadasi, Athens and Olympia.  I went with my mum, sister, brother and my aunt and two cousins so we all had a great laugh. I have to say I enjoyed Olympia the best, it was great going round the old Olympic site and the weather was great too! Here is a few pictures from my holidays.

My cousins, sister and I off for Cocktails with the Captain

JC Versus Everyone Else

I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that Jeffery Campbell Night Walk look a likes have popped up everywhere. I got my Night Walks from Solestruck in February and they cost me £110.

While I have worn them a few times, it's a bit gutting that now you can pick up very similar shoes for £30.

FAITH- £30.00 @ Chockers Shoes

Sculpted Cut Out Wedge Shoes- £40.00 @ soyoushoes.co.uk

Skye Black Suede Heel-less Shoe- £36.00 @ My 1st Wish

In the interest of science I think I may have to purchase a pair just to see how the quality and standard measures up. I have my eye on this pair.
CARRY- £40.00 @ Chockers Shoes

What's you opinion on shoe look a likes? Do you feel the need to shell out the money for the real deal or are you happy to look else where?

Current Wish list

I think that I will need to rob a bank to afford this week's wish list!

Jeffery Campbell Lita All Over Spikes- £160.00 @ Office

Satchel in Lilac- £110 (13") @ Cambridge Satchel Company 
I want my initials embossed on it as well which would be an extra £15 (nae cheap!)

Vivienne Westwood Cheeky Alice Perfume- £55.00 @ Debenhams

Traditional Leather Jacket- £165 @ Topshop

So all together that comes to...£505. Think a few of these will have to go on the christmas list!


I know I'm about a year too late on this one but I finally got an Urban Decay Naked palette.

Yay! I love it so much and have used it every single day since I got it last week. Today I have used sin, toasted and hustle on my eyelids and hustle on my eyebrows. I think half-baked has to be my favourite colour and I am wearing that with creep in my T in the Park OOTD post. I'm sure I will be investing in the Naked 2 palette soon enough. If you haven't got one (and I'm sure you do), I highly recommend you snap one up soon!
If anyone is interested I also have on:
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC15
MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
Benefit Erase Paste in No. 2
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Clarins Khol Eye Pencil in Extreme Black
MAC Bad, Bad, Black Opulash Mascara
MAC Sheertone Blush in Peaches
MAC Longwear Lipcreme in Seasoned Plum

What make up item are you in love with at the minute?

Leggings Obsession!

I have developed a total addiction to Topshop leggings recently. In the last few days I have bought three pairs.

I haven't actually had a chance to wear any of these yet but I'm sure you will be seeing them in an outfit post soon.
Other pairs I am coveting are:

I can see me caving and buying the side studded pair (top) soon! What have you guys been buying recently?

Necklace- Bought at a Craft Fair
Rings- H & M (left hand), Dorothy Perkins (right hand)

This is what I wore on Friday to go to T in the Park. Friday was great as it remained nice and dry and I got to see Snow Patrol and Kaiser Chiefs again and Florence and the Machine for the first time. The weather was not so great for the rest of the weekend! It pissed down almost all day Saturday and that left us ankle deep in thick mud all Sunday! Anyway here are a few more photos from the weekend. You can probably tell from the last one it was a very wet weekend!
