Top: Topshop sale
Coat: H&M sale
Necklace: Topshop sale

First of all, apologies for the weird lighting in these photos - it's a stupidly dull day, the pics came out really wrong and I don't have as much time as I'd like to adjust them properly, so this was the best I could do!  I went shopping a couple of days ago and was surprised that there were still quite a few sales on.  The H&M one was my favourite because I found this mac which was £30 down to £10!  I love the 50s swing style of it, where it goes in at the waist and out at the bottom, so much better than some of the shapeless macs I've owned in the past.  The pink top is from Topshop and I just couldn't resist the colour and fitted style of it, this kind of pink usually goes with quite a few different kinds of accessories too like gold and silver, which brings me on to the necklace.. also found in the sale, I just thought it was a bit different and one of those statement-type pieces.  

I also stopped by the make up counter in Topshop and thought I would try a couple of their lipsticks as quite a few people seem to rave about them!  I got a coral shade in 'Infrared' and a nude in 'Nevada'.  I love coral make up as I think it suits my (very very) pasty skin better than reds, and the nude is perfect for work as it's subtle and quite natural looking.  They are pretty moisturising too which was a bonus as my lips are dry all year round, so these don't make them any worse.

This is what the 'Infrared' shade looks like on, it's quite matte considering how moisturising it is, but I don't mind because if I want glossy I would just put some gloss on top or instead of.  

As I seemed to be on a roll with the whole shopping thing I thought why stop there?! and went on to buy a couple of things for my nails! 


I bought this Maxfactor Max Effect mini nail polish in 'Red Carpet Glam', it's a coral/red colour (so yeah I love coral!!) and these nail gems from a £1 shop.  The result is this: 

They are very bright, a bit ott, quite impractical, but I can't help but love them and feel a little bit closer to summer because of them!  Have a great day, I'm off to work! xx
