Cinema = Shopping

Don't you just hate it when you tell yourself "that's it no more buys for the month!" and never keep to it! (or is that just me?)
Yesterday was supposed to be a straight forward day of cinema and home. But when your cinema is located within a shopping haven (Westfields) and you have time to kill, it's gonna go down very differently!

I didn't buy a lot of things in my defence, and some of the things I did buy were on offer
At £2 each this was a steal from Kiko, I've never really heard of them before but they have a small store in Westfields.  These were reduced but looking at their full price products it was not that expensive, lip glosses as cheap as £4.50 full price. I couldn't get a good picture of the white nail polish but it has a pretty pink pearl finish to it.

The lipstick is a matte finish, it's not too bright on the lips and has a frosted affect

And on yours truly...

I love it, what a bargain. The colour is no 9. Now on to Forever 21+. When I heard the store was opening in Stratford I was  so excited! I had been on the website a numerous amount of times always blown away by the selection and quantity of plus size clothing available to me, I had even purchased online before they moved to my sides of the pond. So imagine my despair when I walk into a 3 storey store only to find a corner section (I can't even describe how small it is) of Forever 21 Plus! I mean come on! Is this a joke, the store is huge! Not to mention it is badly laid out, there are 3 different styles on one arm, there is no flow to the layout, you have to rummage through everything like its a jumble sale! When you look at the rest of the store everything is beautifully laid out, which is even more of an insult that they don't think us plus babies deserve the same amount of effort and consideration! Anyway enough of my ranting and on to what I did manage to find
 Its a printed shrug and a sheer laced edge black top! Not the best pictures I know but it's just a sneak peak.

I just love the lace edging to the black top, can't wait to wear it when its a little warmer. Its too cold to freeze my goodies! Also these two gorgeous rings

Lets talk about scarves. I went into Dorothy Perkins the other day and picked up this for £7
I was inspired by Shirley from Meek n Mild on different ways to wear your scarves, and I turned mine into a bow

Don't you just love the cats
This is turning into a bad hair day saver! lol Definitely need to invest in some more. Thanks for reading XOXO


  1. OMG! Have I never spoken to you about KIKO before??? They are BIG here in Madrid and I LOVE LOVE LOVE their eye shadows and lipsticks!! They really pretty sparkly eye shadows that I buy in as many colours as I can when they go on sale!! Seriously, didn't I ever mention them to you? I am planning to do a little make up tutorial using mostly Kiko products soon, so please, stay tuned! I also bought a very similar ring to yours recently... The blue one.

    1. I look forward to that make up post! xx
