Wet n Wild Colour Icon Collection Palettes

I've been a big fan of Wet n Wild for ages, especially their eyeshadow palettes which I find are excellent quality and a great price. Sadly they don't sell them in the UK, but whenever I go to America I hunt them down. I started off using their "Color Icon" trios, my favourite being "Walking on Eggshells" which combines soft pink with neutrals and that I use time and time again.

Swell Renew Serum Review

In the Summer months, like a lot of people I suffer with frizzy, flyaway hair. I've used many different products to try and combat this, but many of them weigh my hair down and make it look flat and greasy. Not a good look. 

Cue Swell Ultimate Protect and Renew Serum. My sister introduced this to me after she got it in a Marks and Spencer beauty box. It claims to banish frizz, keep hair sleek, hydrated and a picture of health. Concealing your split ends and protecting from heat, it'll give you the perfect professional finish. It specifically mentions it's good for fine hair, so how did it measure up on my fairly thick fairly frizzy do?

Pom Pom Sandals Trend

Pom Pom shoes are everywhere recently, if you haven't seen them where have you been?! Made popular by brand Aquazurra they're a fun spin on the standard sandal. Unfortunately the Aquazurra pairs are about £200 out of my price range, so I set about finding some more affordable alternatives.

Top Left - Tan - Ebay - £20.49 | Top Right -  Black - Ego - £24.99 | Middle Right - Black - Ebay - £14.96 | Middle Left - Pink - Ebay - £26.67 | Bottom Right - River Island - £35 | Bottom Left - Tan - Ebay - £17.99

In all different designs, and colours you're spoilt for choice with the number of more purse friendly options you can choose from. I definitely have my eye on the River Island pair and I love the idea of having a pair with a heel for more dressy occasions.

Schuh Platform Shoes

High heels, they make your legs look fantastic, but by god they hurt. It's so rare that I find a pair of heels that I'm not begging to take off after an hour, so when I do I hold on to those bad boys and buy them in every colour going. Meet my new holy grail heels..

My friend had a birthday a couple of weeks ago and I wanted a new pair of heels. I happened to look in the sale section on Schuh and stumbled across these platform heels. I was sceptical about how comfortable they'd be but I got them anyway because the price was so good (£60 reduced to £13 don't mind if I do!)
