I have always loved Office for it's vast range of shoe styles, colours and quality.
I have previously been wanting these shoes for a good two years now, but due to the shop not having my size I was unable to purchase them and then they disappeared out of the shop completely.
I was looking for a present for my boyfriend when I noticed that an old pair of cowboy shoes that I bought about 4 years ago were still on the website.(although heavily reduced - it appeared that I could purchase 5 of these shoes to match up to the £90 I once paid for them) I quickly typed in "GLADIATOR" into the search bar, scrolled back a few pages and there they were. The last remaining pair in Size 3 and whats more were reduced! It was fate. 
 £60 - REDUCED £20

I absolutely love these shoes! They are such a statement shoe and look perfect with my high waisted shorts with a tucked in top and loose cardigan.
The description from office is  "They really are the ultimate Gladiator Sandals" Which is definitely true!
I'm definitely going to get a lot of use out of these for summer.
For those of you who have missed out on shoes from Office I would strongly urge you to have a look at their websites. You'll find amazing deals and being a size 3/4 I can take my pick on pretty much all the past collections!
Hope this is helpful

Spoiled Brat: Buy One Get One Half Price

Spoiled Brat has got to be one of my favourite online clothing stores when I have the mollah to splash out on new items for my wardrobe.
I was searching online over the weekend when I noticed the incredible deals that Spoiled Brat had on offer.
Not wanting to miss out on this opportunity I had a browse at all the items of clothing on offer.. There really was some bargains!
After much deliberation I chose these two items:
6126 By Lindsay Lohan
(I actually could not believe this bargain!)
I like how the item itself came with its own coat hanger and plastic sleeve, This is how I plan on storing this top in my wardrobe.
I love the statement chain detailing on this top, It's really eye-catching and unusual. I plan to wear this out for my boyfriends birthday meal next weekend with some skinny grey denim jeans and killer heels.

 Everything about this top screams high end quality
I love the chain on the back of the top and the fact that it can be removed, I hate itchy labels so It's definitely a bonus having a charm!

Then half price to £5!!
I love the size of this mirror - it's large enough that you can see the whole of your face, yet small enough to fit in your make-up bag or to have in your handbag/clutch on the go.
There are two mirrors available making it easy to set up to different angles.
It fastens with a little clip making it easy to open, yet secure enough to stop from getting dirty and/or breaking.
There is a button on the right side which turns the 'limited edition' heart shaped lights on - this is a really clever feature and is something that I will find really useful, particularly in the evenings and on nights out.
I really like the fine detail to this mirror, The front contains Swarovski Crystals which makes it look really elegant and pretty.
I love how every angle of this mirror has been thought of, I love how the back has the word "You!" printed on. 

Overall I'm really pleased with my bargain buys! Spoiled Brat has always been exceptionally good with its service.
I don't think this website is recognised enough and would urge anyone to have a look at what items they have to offer.

Liz Earle Summer 2011

I'm really sorry for the lack of uninteresting posts as of late. I've been busy concentrating on revising for my A Level exams and enjoying the current sunshine, which is unusual for the UK.
I have had these products a few weeks now and I absolutely love them. (I will be posting a review on them in a few days time!)
I have previously bought the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Hot Cloth Cleaner a few months ago before I received this news letter, and I use it religiously when I wake up in the morning and before I go to sleep. (Sometimes I even use it a third time after college/work before I go out in the evening) I was nearing the end of my bottle and needed to reorder.
While flicking through the pages of the news letter it didn't take long for me to see how many good deals were being advertised, I quickly gave the catalogue to my mum to see if she wanted anything to order and it turned out that because of recommending her, I received a complimentary Essentials Try-Me Kit worth £22.25.
 This came in a seperate order. The kit itself included the following:
♡ Zip Up Bag
♡ Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleaner 30ml
♡ Instant Boost Skin Tonic 50ml
♡ Skin Repair Moisturiser Normal/Combination 15ml
♡ Skin Repair Moisturiser Dry/Sensitive 15ml
♡ 1 Pure Muslin Cloth
I am going with my friends to Kos next month and this little kit bag is so travel friendly and will be perfect for my week away!

 I'm really impressed with the personal touches that accompanied both orders. I really liked how each order was personally signed by whoever processed the order. One of the accompanied letters read "Our Company is founded on "Quality and Service" always and everyone involved is passionate abut offering first class service." I would also like to add that my order took less than 24 hours after ordering to be delivered, which was absolutely great.
The order came in a huge parcel which contained lots of foam protection. Each order came in its own box which looked like this - I think I had a total of 4 different ones!
Each individual item was also individually wrapped, printed with the Liz Earle Logo and sealed with a sticker.
This contained:
♡ Cleanse & Polish HotCloth Cleanser 100ml
♡ Instant Boost Skin Tonic 200ml
♡ Skin Repair Moisturiser 50ml
♡ 2 Pure Muslin Cloths

The bag also contained a free complimentary Skin-Savers Kit worth £16.10. This contained:
♡ Zip up Bag
♡  Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer - 30ml
♡ Skin Repair Moisturiser Dry/Sensitive - 15ml
♡ Superbalm - 5g
♡ Hand Repair Moisturiser 15ml

The Second parcel was again wrapped in the same style as the first box and contained the "Suncare Offer - £32.20"
This kit includes:
♡ Limited Edition Summer Tote Bag
♡ Mineral Sun Cream, Medium Protection - 150ml
♡ Sun Shade Botanical AfterSun Gel - 200ml
♡ Sheer Gold Shimmer- 15ml
♡ Sheer Pink Lip Lip Shimmer - 15ml

The quality of the Liz Earle brand also includes the travel bags that accompany the kits, I love how the logo of the company is stitched on to all the kit bags.
With this kit the bag is of exceptional quality, The bag is of a decent size, the material is really sturdy and thick, and the front pocket is water proof (I plan on taking this bag away with me when I go on holiday and plan on keeping my room key, phone and any necessities here making it is ideal to carry to the beach or hotel pool.
The bag closes with two magnets which is a really clever idea and makes it easy to open and shut when on the go.

I bought my boyfriend the "Mens Summer Offer - £38.50"
I haven't photographed this as It is a present for his birthday next week and I didn't want to open it.
The Kit Includes:
♡ Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser - 100ml
♡ Sensitive Shave Cream - 100ml
♡ After Shaving Moisturiser - 50ml
♡ 2 Pure Muslin Cloths
♡ Botanical shine Shampoo - 500ml
♡ Botaical Shine Conditioner  50ml

I would describe the prices as "affordable luxury" - by this I mean that the prices are a little bit more than any highstreet skin care products such as Simple or Clearasil, and can't be found in your local drug stores but are very purse friendly in comparison to the designer brands that we know and love!
I can't rate Liz Earle enough.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
Have you tried any of the Liz Earle products?
Are there any other products that you would recommend?

OOTD, Catch Up & New Hair

I thought I would do an Outfit of The Day as I haven't done one for a while.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous as of late, It's making me want to go on holiday even more.
I have found myself spending the majority of my money on clothes this month - I've rekindled my love for H&M, this is probably down to the fact that they've revamped their website and have opened a new store near to where I live. They've got some great summer dresses, I will be uploading my H&M haul soon once everything has arrived.
My boyfriend has gone to Lanzarote with his friend on a 'golfing' holiday this week. I went out with some of my closest girl friends last night for a few drinks and a catch up, I also has an 'informal' interview earlier on in the day for a new job once I've finished my A Levels in the summer, the outfit below was what i wore to both arrangements.
I've also had my hair re-dyed back to it's natural colour, the upkeep of having to re-dye my red hair was getting beyond a joke and I didn't want the sun to beach it whist I was away on holiday.
I can't believe I have four exams left, In less than a month I will be out of education for good!!
♡ Top- New Look
♡ Cardigan - Zara
 Chinos & Belt - Miss Selfridge Petite
♡ Benefit Moon Beam
 Mac Studio Fix Fluid - NW20
♡ Mac Skin Finish Natural - Medium 
♡ Mac Powder Blush - Pinch O' Peach
♡  Collection 2000 Concealer - #2 Light
♡ Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara - Black
♡ Mac Paint Pot - Soft Orche
♡ Urban Decay Naked Palette - Sin, Virgin, Creep, Gun Metal
♡ Avon Supershock Gel Liner - Black

Hope everyone is having a great weekend :)
