By the count of ten, I wanna see somebody human

















So if you watched my Warehouse Haul video you'll know that I intended on exchanging a couple of things. Well I picked up this gorgeous metallic jumper, a leopard print snood, and black knit with leather lapels and pockets. I love them all, but my favourite is by far the metallic knit, its a little rough on the outside but nice and soft on this inside, and lovely and warm too.

The spending ban is also going well. Not. I was intending on saving up for the pink Miu miu which I have wanted for a while now, coincidentally the one Laura just bought. Its a beaut of a bag but at the moment my savings are being depleted thanks to life. You know the drill, one minute you have £20 in your purse then the next minute you've a few pound coins left and no idea what you've spent it on. In my case its usually petrol, snickers, cans of diet coke, and chewing gum. Anyhow I digress. I bought a couple of things this weekend, which to be fair two items were essentials, and one was a luxury. I repurchased my Mac Studio Fix Fluid and Hue lipstick, both absolute necessities in my make up bag. Then I was lured to the Dior counter and ended up buying an eyeshadow trio. I've never bought any Dior shadows before but I'm suitably impressed with them. I absolutely adore the packaging, and the colours are beautiful. Obviously nice and neutral, but perfect for slapping on effortlessly and still looking good. I'm wearing my new make up in the photos in this post, if you were wondering.

Also my other favourite thing right now is pastel nail polish. Think pale pinks and lilacs. Think I'm going to pick up a couple of the new Rimmel Aqua Pro polishes because they have some lovely pastel colours.

Anyway friends, until next time, stay nice and warm out of this horrid weather we're having in the UK, and drink lots of tea and read books. I'm currently reading a few books (I have a habit of reading several books at once) but mainly "A little history of the World" which is excellent if you like history, and I'm thoroughly enjoying reading it. I've also bought Karl Pilkington's An Idiot Abroad Travel Dairies, The Help, and When God was a Rabbit to read this month. Can you say Book Worm?
