The past week...

I picked up Nars Laguna as I was really missing it, I really enjoyed using it in the past and realise I did prefer it to Casino as it's much cooler. It's one of my favourite bronzers alongside, Benefit Hoola and the Soleil Tan De Chanel, I plan on doing a comparison shortly.

I also got myself a Chanel Pressed Powder (Poudre universelle compacte) shade 30 naturel - translucent. I have been using it to set my foundation and it works like a dream, it always looks smooth and non existent. I can pile it on and it still doesn't look cakey, it also stops my t-zone from getting oily and doesn't irritate my skin. Win win for me.



I picked up 3 polishes from American Apparel, Pinto, Malibu Green and Palm Springs were the shades I opted for. These are so opaque and need no patience to apply, check them out if you get a chance. I feel like I want them all.

I love this gorgeous ring and wrap I picked up from Topshop, totally me!

I couldn't resist this large polka dot cardigan from H&M, it's so fun and cute. I like the raised circles and this cardigan is actually thicker than it looks on camera, it's perfect for the freezing weather we have in London.

As I was saying, it's FREEZING, here in London and I needed a padded jacket, I found this in Bershka, I have never purchased anything from there before but this jacket fit, looked nice on and is incredibly warm. Perfect, I love it.

What did you pick up this week?

I love american apparel nail polish too, it's the best. I need that nude peach one..Palm Springs? Beautiful.
