Tagged Again & I'm A Winner, Baby!

I got home on Saturday to discover a little package waiting for me - I love getting surprises in the post. I ripped it open to find I'd won a Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick - I get their email newsletter and it always has competitions on it where they give away LOTS of goodies, I've won a couple of things before from them! I received the shade "Stare At Me":





















It's a bit darker in real life than in the picture. It's a gorgeous colour, really pigmented - I was pleasantly surprised at the colour payoff. Straight out the tube it's a little dark for me but I've been applying it with my finger as a stain and putting some lipbalm on top and it looks really nice - a "my lips but better" shade. The packaging is quite 80s...shiney pink and gold but I quite like it! The only thing I'm not so keen on is the smell of this lipstick (it's got a strange, artificial smell to it) but you don't notice that once its on. Considering I won this and so didn't choose the shade I'm pretty impressed with it!

I was also tagged by the lovely Caz to do this:

1. What shoe size are you?

I'm a 4.5 which is really annoying for shoe shopping on the highstreet as I'm right inbetween sizes! M&S and Nine West are my favourite for shoes though as they both do half sizes - Nine West have gorgeous heels and M&S shoes are so affordable and The Limited Collection ones are amazing!

2. Where do you work?
I'm a student but I have a part time job as a receptionnist. Before uni I worked in John Lewis in the shoe department. (Can you tell that I rather like shoes?!)

3. Favourite piece of clothing you own?
My Patricia Field for M&S "Carrie" corsage dress - you can see a bit of it in the picture on the right sidebar.


4. Your favourite blog?
I couldn't pick one favourite!

5. Do you have any pets?

At my parents house I have a canary called Sonny. He doesn't photograph too well through his cage but here he is:




















6. How many siblings do you have?
None!


7. If you could live anywhere where would it be?
I love living in London but I'd also love to live in NYC (but only in the summer, I hate cold winters) or the south of France.

8. What were you doing before this?
Eating some strawberries and checking emails.

9. What’s your favourite food?
I love sushi and Wagamama, especially "Wagagmama Raamen".

10. Do you have a middle name?
No.

11. Your favourite websites?
I like Elle.com for fashion and beauty bits, and the Dailymail.co.uk for celebrity gossip.

I'd like to tag:
YOU if you're reading this and haven't done it yet!
