Yet another trip to Pizza Express.

And yup, I did just go a few days ago. This time it was just me and my brother going for lunch. What can I say, we're addicted!

Lolita sunglasses 3.0

As you know, I clumsily broke my red pair two weeks ago. Well, last Saturday, I got their replacement -- in orange!

These bad boys made their debut this Tuesday, at an economics do, where we all looked rather fancy in our gladrags, so I thought I'd share some more photos!

Delicious dessert we had. The chocolate flake part on the top was my favourite!

Product Review: two Body Shop items


DeoDry Dry Effect Deodorant: the zesty lime smell goes down a treat, and the roll-on anti-pespirant brings back memories of my first ever deodorant, which was a Dove roll-on. There is a very generous quantity of the stuff for its price, which is just as well as, whilst the smell of it lingers strongly when you first apply it, after a few minutes the scent dies away, meaning the promise of "24 hour protection" is optimistic in the extreme. B.

Lily Cole Hi Shine Lip Treatment - absolutely fabulous! The smell, the lasting power, and the fantastic shine it gives to your lips renders this one of my all-time favourite lipglosses. Absolutely no flaws, aside from being a little on the small side (I would like a lot more where this came from!) A.

Product Review: Barratts Mid High Slouch Casual Boots

Photobucket
With the bitter cold of the English winter hitting us, I like to make sure every layer of my skin is fully covered. The skinny-jeans-and-boots combination is one way I can stay vaguely fashionable, whilst still warding off the cold, and the boots that have aided me in doing this best have been my trusted pair of tan Mid High Slouch Casual Boots from Barratts.

Comfort-wise, they are just right; I have also been wearing my Hunter boots on occasion, which are made of such a thick rubber that they weigh on the feet after long walks, as well as my New Look suede pair, for which the material was too flimsy and thin to offer my feet sufficient protection from the cold. These boots – nicknamed Poodle – are made from a soft leather material that feels great to touch but also does the job in actually covering our tooties.

Aesthetically, they work a treat too, covering my jeans just right and coming up just about mid-way on my calves. This style is available in two colours – black or tan- both colours which complement any choice outfits (especially the black ones). I, however, opted for tan, as the shade of brown of these boots were just completely perfect and suits my skin tone better.

The low heel makes these boots very practical for walking in (perfect as I have a steep hill to get up on a daily basis) and very rarely for a pair of new shoes, I have experienced absolutely no problems in transitioning my feet into them. The softness of the material also means that my legs feel no discomfort either; quite the contrary, they are wonderfully shielded by the fabric. Perfect!

Grade: A+
