Versace for H&M

H&M is always the store I go to for basics. And by basics, I don't mean plain white t-shirts and boring granny pants - I mean those classic staple wardrobe items that last for seasons upon seasons.

Every collection that H&M releases gets my undivided attention and so when news of their collection by Versace reached me, I sat down with a cup of tea huge bar of Galaxy and gave it all a good look.

True to H&M form, there are some gorgeous dresses with simple embellishment along with some great quirky pieces which are just made for clashing. Everyone seems to be loving clashing prints right now.

Of course, with Versace involved, it's almost all too expensive for my little budget. I best get saving!

NOTD: Miss Sporty Lilac

The friend painted my nails with a gorgeous lilac colour from Rimmel last week and I loved it so much that I thought I go out and hunt for my own one.

Unfortunately on this little trip out, I managed to forget my purse so I had to see what pennies I could find at the bottom of my bag. After 5 minutes 'sorting my finances' on a bench on the high street, I ended up with £2.37. Yay.

The £4 something Rimmel polish was out of the question so I went off on a hunt for one under £2.37! And I came across this Miss Sporty one.

For £1.99, I can't complain and to be honest, there's nothing to complain about! 2 coats make it perfectly opaque and I'm more than a little bit in love with the colour. Not very A/W but who cares!?

Leggings Love (and a giveaway winner)

No matter whether they're 'on trend' or not, I will always have a soft spot for leggings. Fun, comfy and, if you choose carefully, rather fashionable too!

I was browsing through the Urban Outfitters website this morning and in an attempt to not get too caught up with the cute dresses and quirky tees, I had a gander at their leggings section. And here I found the beauties that you can see above! If you're into 'basics' and simple elegant clothes, these probably aren't pushing your buttons, but I can't keep my eyes off them!

I am loving prints at the moment. Big and bold, cute and ditsy, loud and clashing - whatever the print, I'm probably drooling over it. My favourite pair of leggings I found are these Fair Isle ones which, given that winter is on it's way, seem perfect!

P.S. The winner of 200+ followers giveaway is Charlotte Head Over Heels! Congratulations Charlotte! If you could email me your full name and address, I'll get your prize in the post next week. Thank you to everyone that reads my blog and all the support I get from you beautiful people. I know I've been a bit MIA recently but once I'm on top of all my work I'll be blogging away again!
