I heart H&M

I've often found that as soon as the new fashion season turns and brand new styles pop up everywhere, I'm unleashed and go out seeking for the perfect Spring look even though it's mid February and snow still hasn't melted.  H&M has been my one-stop-shop for a while because amongst their casual tops and essentials, you can find some amazing catwalk copycats and for a mere steal. 

Gently Does It

Jacket: H&M £29.99
Stripy Top: H&M £9.99
Blue and Pink Clutch: H&M £12.99
Light Blue Trousers: H&M £7.99
Ballet Pumps: H&M £7.99

Colour Pop

Green Scarf: H&M £6.99
Orange Jacket: ASOS £15
Green Top: H&M £9.99
Green Satchel: H&M £12.99
Skinny Jeans: Next £29.99
Ballet Pumps: H&M £7.99

 The new range of H&M ballet pumps come in five gorgeous colours and at only £7.99 you can afford to buy the entire set.  I was desperate for the emerald green ones but unfortunately they had no size 4 left. 

H&M is that perfect place where you can keep up to date with the latest trends without breaking the bank.  Perfectly on trend and affordable, it's the one store that will never lose style.

It's KIKO time

It sometimes dawns on you when you notice something new that you must have it.  Right that second in fact.  So when I walked past KIKO in Westfield, I had to go in.  And I had to try out a little bit of everything. 

I'm no stranger to their coloured eyeliners as gifts from friends, by the extended make-up range has always been somewhat of a mystery to me.

I bought:
  1. BB Cream Coloured Beauty Balm in 01 Light
  2. Natural Concealer in 01
  3. Hydrating Mask
  4. Creamy Touch Eyeshadow Due in 06
  5. Skin Evolution Foundation in 01 Porcelain
  6. Automatic Precision Eyeliner and Kohl in 716
  7. False Lashes Concentrate Volume Top Coat Mascara
  8. Unforgettable Mascara
  9. Nail Lacquer in 341
  10. Nail Lacquer in 343
BB cream seems to be a beaty trend at the moment with more and more make-up brands releasing this as the new must-have.  I've tried a couple in the past, but this KIKO one is certainly my favourite of them all.  It's the perfect all-in-one for all those busy girls as it primes, moisturises and gives light coverage for an all over glow.  

I was surprised this concealer works so well considering that on first impressions it looks like a highlighter.  It's different to the rest in that it has a pink colour to it, but once blended around the eye area, I understand why.  The creamy formula smoothes on instantly and hides away any signs of sleeplessness and stays put all day.

I tried KIKO's Hydrating Mask very briefly and have to say that this product does exactly what it says on the tin.  After leaving it on the skin for 10 minutes, the results were great.  My skin felt incredibly soft.

This black eyeliner goes on great and gives a selection of great looks - from rock chick kohl to evening look smokyness.

KIKO have a range of top coat mascaras that will simply blow you away.  The idea behind these is that they act as an 'enhancer' when applied over your regular mascara.  Coming in a selection of volumising, curling or lengthening, these cute and colourful make-up essential leave you with definite results.  I bought the volumising one and don't think I will ever part with it.

The Unforgettable Mascara curls eyelashes to perfection.  It's bristles separate and minimise clumps, whilst the spoon-like brush lengthens to give a cat-eye effect.

KIKO's nail lacquers come in a rainbow of colours and you're bound to find your perfect one.

What's even more amazing is that it's all at affordable prices!

StylistPick is my pick

There are three things you need to know about me.

1) I'm obsessed with lipsticks
2) I'm terrified of pigeons

3) I remember everything you tell me

I used to always think that these three were the fundamental three things about me - the foundation of getting to know me.  And yet recently I've noticed another pattern - another topic I seem to mentioned more than enough.  StylistPick.  

Wednesday morning was pretty much spent comparing StylistPick showrooms over emails and discussing (in great detail) what our next purchase would be.  That whole website astounds me at how it has all us girls going gaga over it's complete simplicity.  But I guess that's what makes it so desirable.  With all the choice out there, sometimes you want to be told exactly what to buy in the best way possible, and what better way than a perfectly laid out showroom where you know that whatever you choose you'll love, because after all, it was picked especially for you.
The last thing I bought from there was this gorgeous tote bag:

Keira -
 I adore this bag because it's perfect for day to day, carrying everything you'll need.  But it also doubles up as an overnight bag if required.

Next on the list for me is this Ali bag:

Ali -
With all the pastels and prints we're being shown on the catwalks for S/S12, this gorgeous white bag will be a wardrobe staple, complimenting any look.
