Help me to decide...

 I have always admired Micheal Kors rose gold watches but 
sadly I think they are a little out of my price range. 

As rose gold jewellery is growing trend I know it wouldn't be long until it hit the high streets. 

But now I'm in a pickle. 
River Island stock three beautiful rose gold watches all for under £30 and I cant decide on which one I like most.

Decisions decisions...
I think I may be swaying towards the first, which one do you prefer?

All of you fashion lovers may know that the River Island sale started recently. Silly me woke up extra extra early to rummage through their reduced shoes and clothing.Of all the sneaky purchases I made these are by far my favourite.

Check out my flatforms, they were a bargain at €24!

What are your thoughts on flatforms? 
I cant wait to wear these badboys in Ibiza!

Send me links if you have reviewed flatforms?

Empties #2

Its time for another empties post. 
Here are some products I have used up/ emptied recently.

Clarins Extra-Comfort Cleansing Cream

My skin can be quiet sensitive so I stick to brands I know work for me. One of which is Clarins. This cleanser is an average milky cleanser. The smell or colour is not the most appealing but it is perfect for the most sensitive of skin. 

Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Make-up Remover 

My all time favourite eye make-up remover. I have tried so many other EMRs but nothing ever compares to this.

Johnsons Extra-Rich Body Lotion

Applying body lotion is a major chore for me. I like to use something that is quick to dry and easy to apply. This is a rich lotion that dries in no time perfect for a girl on the go.

Clarins HydraQuench Cream

As well as having sensitive skin my skin can also be prone to dryness. This day cream from the Clarins HydraQuench range is a perfect match for my skin. The texture is not too rich like many creams for dry skin can be.

Have you used any of these products. I would love to hear your views.

Neutral pink nail with a little bling.

When I purchased this Revlon nail colour I was expecting to achieve a neutral pink shade, instead it was completely sheer. I actually used four coats to reach the desired effect.

To add a little bit of sparkle I applied 3 gemstones to my ring finger.

This is the Broadway Deluxe Body & Nail Art Kit from Boots. It includes assorted gems, body glue and nail glue.

My next neutral nail polish purchase it definitely going to be Essie's Fiji. I have heard so many good reviews and have seen so many blogger pics.

That's all for now.

Louboutin Perspex Heel

I have always loved admiring Christian Louboutins, but has the time finally come where I actually want to purchase a pair. I hope not for the sake of my bank balance.

Drum Roll please

One Christian Louboutins latest creations, the perspex heel.

Have a look at the many celebs who have donned these beauties.

Rihanna sported the iconic black perspex shoes at this years Met Ball.

Kim Kardashian wore them whilst out on a date with her new beau Kanye West.

And lastly Rita Ora teamed the fuchsia colour perspex heels with an amazing white dress.

Who wore them best?

I have to say I am completely besotted with Kim's sense of fashion. I love that she enjoys accentuating her curves, because lord know we all have them. But how hot does Rihanna look is that backless dress.
