I've been shopping #5

After a nail biting wait, my student loan final made an appearance in my bank account. Of course this goes towards rent, healthy food and University supplies.. and a little goes towards some treats for me!


I've been after a new pair of winter shoes for a while now, to be honest, I'm not really fussed on footwear. I live in my Massimo Dutti Chelsea Boots and my classic white converse.. Nothing else really comes in between them. So sticking with the old, I went for a pair of maroon converse. I picked them up from Office as you get 10% student discount. They go with everything I wear and are super comfy - A girl can't really go wrong with them!


My weaknesses when shopping, seem to always involve nail polish and lipsticks - I can't avoid them. I've never used or even looked at CK one make-up before, but after getting leaped on by a lovely sales assistant, I couldn't resist giving one of their new products a go. I picked up their pure colour lipstick in "fancy", it's a really creamy, slightly pearly nude. I love the consistency, it's very natural and not at all drying on the lips, the packaging is sleek and compact too.
I also picked up an Essie nail polish (I have become the ultimate Essie addict) in "aperitif"- I was after a true red. I often get sick of brights, pastels and glitters on my nails, and find myself going back to more classic colours. This makes for the perfect timeless red, definitely worth the money!

Have you guys tried any of these products? or picked up anything cool recently? I'd love to know...

  8. I've been wanting a pair of maroon converse for ages, they're such a pretty colour... I know I shouldn't buy them as I've got far too much burgundy in my wardrobe anyway but they're just so beautiful!
