A Few Of My Favourite Things: January 29th

An extended "favourites" post today as I've got quite a bit to show you and this crappy weather has made getting decent pictures near impossible.


1. Topshop Heeled Loafers
It was love at first site when I saw these on the Topshop website. By the time I actually got around to going to a store and trying them on, every colour had sold out in my size (37) apart from the patent black. I really, really wanted the mum phoned four stores to see if they had them and my dad even got involved with the shoe hunt, phoning the stores near where he worked but we had no luck. My mum said that all the SA's she spoke to were very helpful, Mary Portas - be impressed! I'm still in love with my black pair, they're really comfortable and look nice and smart so are helping my wardrobe to grow up stylishly.

2. Nails Inc for Diet Coke
Combining my love of Diet Coke and beauty freebies, these are my four polishes from this year's collection. I don't think I like the colours as much as last year's but they were free so I can't complain! There are loads of swatch posts of these shades, Leanne's are great. I think my favourite is "Heather Grey".

3. Fabulous! Models Own
This year's Fabulous make-up freebie. Not a bad little make-up bag for the £2 spent collecting the tokens. I've yet to actually use any of the make-up but I'll try to post some pictures when I get round to it. It always takes me ages to use new products...are you the same or do you start using new purchases straight away?

I made an Avon order last week as my mum's friend's 15 year old daughter is an Avon lady. I had a browse of the catelogue and bought a few basic bathroom-y bit and couldn't resisit this Colortrend heart-shaped lipstick:


It was only £1! It's really sheer and the colour is much pinker than it looks in the tube and brochure swatches:


Lastly, over the last couple of weeks I've signed up to both Lookbook and Chictopia. I was curious about the sites after seeing them on numerous other blogs and thought I'd give them a go. I'm not so sure about Lookbook (I don't like how all your outfit posts have a big fat "0" next to them until someone "hypes" you) but I really like Chictopia. Everyone is very friendly and it seems like a lot of users are "normal" girls. It's a great source of style inspiration and has definitely made me consider new ways of wearing clothes I already have.

  21. A little boy bought a cricket by money that his par¬ents gave him.
    In the arithmetic hour, the teacher asked him:
    - Your father gave you six cents. Your mother gave you four cents. How many cents do you have now?
    - Teacher, I have a cricket now - Answered the boy
