Oh so Costa Chic!

I ventured out into Manchester today with my dearest friend Natalia, we were both on a mission to do some serious shopping (my mission was not as accomplished as hers) and lets just say one umbrella between two girls in flood worthy rain was a bad move! We got totally drenched looking for Ryan's Vintage up near Piccadilly, but I did purchase a gorgeous vintage scarf so the day was not all doom and gloom.

I took the opportunity whilst in the city centre to return some empty compacts to MAC in return for a lipstick of choice. This time round, after numerous nudes and pinks, I decided to get a bit adventurous and picked Costa Chic. I know this shade might not be adventurous for some, but for me it's nothing sort of an achievement!

Im not totally won over by it... yet! I'm sure it'll grow on me, especially when the weather starts to act more like Summer than Winter. Hopefully I'll be able to get a FOTD up using it, as today's rain has made me look like I've been dragged through a bush backwards I thought I'd give it a miss until another date.

Think I'm going to snuggle up with a brew and watch the Eurovision now! Hope you all have a good weekend

My Crowning Glory

It's pretty difficult to convince myself that revising for my A levels isn't a waste of a day when the sun is out and shining. But I took a break from re-reading Pride and Prejudice for the third time to do a quick post showing what my new Crown and Glory floral crown looks like on, as it was requested in my recent post :)

Every time I've worn this beaut I get so many compliments on it, which makes me adore it even more! It makes me feel instantly more summery and I know I'll definitely get a lot of use out of it in the coming months. I also bought a second floral crown and three floral bobby pin sets that you can check out in my last post.

Hope you've all had a good weekend and I can't wait to get back into blogging and YouTubing once these darn exams are over!
