These are some gorgeous boots to replace my current ones as they are way, way too uncomfortable for everyday use. These ones are by a brand called Pull and Bear which I had never heard of, but anyway the shoes were right up my street so naturally they ended up in my basket. I know it's spring/summer, yada yada... but the weather is still very unpredictable and I have found myself wrapped in a blanket with a hot cup in my hand only yesterday. ANYWAY, these shoes are so comfortable and lovely and I can't wait to wear them.
Oh, NARS. For some reason they are not a brand I usually gravitate towards. I'm more of a Bobbi Brown or MAC person if I were to go for a high-end company, but I have heard one of my friends talk about a particular shade of blusher called 'Madly' a lot and thought I'd check it out. I LOVE this shade! I don't know why I haven't tried it sooner! I would describe it as a bronzer/blusher in a deep browny-coral kind of shade. I also own Dallas which is a bronzer/blusher mix, but it is definitely different. Dallas is more pinky/brown. 'Madly' just makes me look healthy! I'm not a fan of the chalkiness of it, however. I find it to be quite dusty and also the staying power isn't amazing unfortunately, that's just on my face though. I have heard lots of people raving about it and everybody is different.
The last item I ordered was this skirt by Vila. It's knee length, was a bargain (£10 I think?!) and increased the versitility of my wardrobe by a mile. I can pair it with so many things, including some things I have rediscovered. It can also be dressed up or down, most of the time though I'll be wearing it to work. I love how my job is non-corporate so I can dress as smartly or as casually as I like (no blue jeans or shoulder-baring is the dress code) so this fits in nicely.
So there you have it, I love shopping. My husband is only getting to know the beginning of it.
