If you follow me on Twitter I'm sure you'll have seen my impatient tweets yesterday as I was waiting for the Parcelforce man to deliver my ASOS parcel. The free next day delivery & 20% off ASOS own brand suckered me in & I just had to make an order. It was totally out of my control, honest!
Lately I've been lusting after pretty rings. I go through phases with rings, sometimes I love the look of wearing lots of them at once, but other times I think that looks so silly on me & just wear one or two simple ones. At the moment, the tackier they are the better! I love peace symbols so I'm unable to resist them and I just had to have that red beauty. It's truly tack-tastic but I adore it!
I've found myself looking at the Dainty Doll make up range a lot since it launched on ASOS. It's no secret I am super pale so perhaps that's why this range appeals so much. It's creator, Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud fame, truly embraces her pale skin tone & she looks completely gorgeous. The blushers are £13 which may seem expensive to some, but after seeing the quality of the product and the packaging, I'm more than happy to pay that.
The packaging is sleek and very grown-up looking, you definitely wouldn't be embarrassed pulling this out of your bag for an on-the-go touch up. You get a huge mirror which I really like to have in a compact like this and there's no need to carry an extra mirror with you, this is more than sufficient.
This particular colour stood out to me for two reasons, firstly it's called Hippy Shake (you really can't escape those Wagner memories!) and secondly to me it looked like quite an unusual shade. The pigmentation when you run your finger lightly over the powder is amazing, if not a little scary. However when you blend the product into your skin you're left with a beautiful lavender sheen which I love.
The list of dresses I'm lusting over is ridiculously long but this shirt dress is one I just had to have right now.
On the website they described this colour as simply 'purple' but in real life it's the most beautiful warm mulberry colour that's so perfect for the current season. Everything about it is lovely, it fits perfectly & it's the exact length I like my dresses to be. I'm 5'8
& on me it sits about 4 or 5 inches above my knee.
I dusted my new Dainty Doll blush over Illamasqua Promise today & I think it looks super pretty. The lavender sheen is subtle but when the light hits your face it gives another dimension to the cheek. Please excuse me, I am such a blush geek! I've also been loving the Naked palette, if you can get hold of this you really should, it's wonderful!
Did you get sucked in by the ASOS discount? I'm debating purchasing the navy version of this dress, should I?
PS. Yes, my hair is no longer pink, it's violet & I ♥ it!
