Outfit: April 25th - Light Jacket Day







Next Black

You may only need a light jacket in Rhode Island on April 25th, but the reality in Yorkshire is a little different. It was so cold last Monday that I pulled out my winter coat again, even though I had stored it away for the spring and summer. Ha, wishful thinking there! I even put on fleece lined tights to keep warm.

Outfit: April 24th - Cosy Sunday

Review: Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara

I was looking for a new mascara a couple of months ago and I thought I'd try the Big Eyes one by Maybelline.  I've long been a fan of The Falsies that Maybelline make so I knew I liked their mascaras.

Big Eyes has a double ended wand - there's a little mini brush for your tiny lower lashes and a regular size brush for your upper lashes.  When I'm applying make up without my glasses on (but also without my contact lenses, so I can't really see what I'm doing) I find the smaller the mascara brush the better, so that was one of the reasons I chose this one.

The mascara is great: it doesn't clump and I find a coating on both sets of lashes with the mini brush, then a layer on my upper lashes with the larger brush provides just the right amount of build up.

I would definitely recommend giving this one a go if you're in the market for a new mascara, and selected Maybelline products are currently on buy one, get one half price at Boots.

Outfit: April 19th - Birthday Dress, Birthday Shoes






LTS navy dot flats

I had some birthday money and this dress was one of the things I got with it. It's from the Tall range at Dorothy Perkins, a range I had discounted for many years because a) they don't stock it in stores so I tend to forget it exists and b) when I do remember it exists I find it's consists of black trousers, jeans and not much else. However, this season they have some pretty awesome dresses and I ordered this one and a striped one. The sleeves (that you can't see here, it's not that warm yet) are around elbow length and I love the knot detail at the front, which gives a very flattering fit.

The shoes were a birthday present from my sister about 4 years ago.

Outfit: April 18th - Slouchy Sweater





F+F boots

It turned cold again over the weekend of 16-17th April (things are getting confusing now I'm so far behind posting my outfits. But it's working for me as I know I don't have to try to snap pictures each day and I always have content scheduled ahead so I can just blog when I have the time) so this slouchy sweater was perfect. It's from Primark and was a birthday present from my lovely little sister. I paired it with skinny jeans and ankle boots.


I love the zip down the back because, you know, I'm obsessed with zips! They have a similar sweater at Primark which has zips at the bottom in the front and I really liked that one too, but the zips felt a bit rough on the inside and I thought they might snag on what ever I was wearing on my legs.
