Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday #38.

Lensbaby Composer @ Amazon.
There are no words to describe how much I am lusting over a Lensbaby Composer. It would be a total splurge on a fun 'toy' lens but I love the effects you can get!

Two. Phone Shopping. 
Orange San Diego. // Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. // Sony Xperia U.
Since my BlackBerry (seriously, worst phone ever!) finally died on me I've been on the hunt for a new phone. My only real requirements are no blackberries and I'd quite like an Andriod because I'd like to be able to instagram on the go. Yep. I'm totally clueless about phones!

Three. Jewellery. 
River Island Shamballa Bracelet. // French Connection hexagon earrings. // Topshop Glitter Ball bracelet.
Since becoming totally obsessed with wearing black dresses I've been loving browsing for cute jewellery pieces to accessorise with. Friendship style bracelets are my current favourite, especially this gold heart shamballa bracelet from River Island via ASOS. It's quite pricey though so I think I'll have a little browse around on Etsy to see if I can find something similar. For some reason I don't mind spending a little more if it's from a hand made Etsy store!

Four. 2 Broke Girls. 
My new favourite TV show is 2 Broke Girls, I absolutely love it, it's so cute! I've loved Kat Dennings since the days of Raising Dad and I love her even more now! Hai girl crush!

I'm not a huge eye shadow wearer so I have absolutely no idea why I'm lusting over this palette so much but I totally am. Every single shade looks gorgeous and I love the name of the palette. I'm a huge sucker for named products! I'm not sure I could bring myself to spend almost £40 on one palette but I'll definitely admire it from afar!

Four. Hannah Said So. Five. Britmira.

    1. Because I can't afford one! I'm not on a contract & don't really want to be so don't have £500 to buy a phone outright! ox

  3. I love most of the Nars palettes, but I've never gotten over the Danmari palette! It was utter gorgeousness :) I blog at www.nayabloves.blogspot.com. Thanks :)

  4. I'm not a huge eyeshadower lover either but that palette is so gorgeous!
    And I really recommend an iPhone. I know everyone and their mother has one but you get instagram, a really good camera, ease of use and of course an endless array of phone cases xoxo

  5. Oooh, I would love to be featured as a blog you love! I check out your five picks religiously every time, and while I may not always like them enough to click follow every time, every so often I come across a couple of blogs I can't wait to subscribe to. In fact, I've found some of my favourites through you!

  7. I ADORE Kat Dennings (Raising Dad was so good!) but I'm still not thoroughly convinced by 2 Broke Girls! I do love her though so I'll probably still keep watching, haha. I really want to try out a Nars palette too, because I love their individual eyeshadows. xx

  14. oooh the Lensbaby looks amazing! Just been added to my forever growing wish list!

  20. I am in the same boat as you with my blackberry....it is seriously worse than my very first Nokia that I had about 11 years ago! I know that Samsungs are supposed to be the TOP of the line phone at the moment....my fiance has one and its super impressive! I just hope that they are sorting out the battery issues on the newer models. I am waiting for my contract to expire and I really want the iPhone5 ;)

    1. Haha I agree! The battery life is the one thing that put me off the most about the Samsung! xo

  21. I had a Blackberry too (although, I called it a Crapberry!) and I upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy. I'd really recommend Android, they're brilliant! I've been loving making my own bracelets! I get something totally unique and it always catches people's eyes :)
