I finally got round to using one of my Front Cover nail polishes that was given to me in the 2011 Christmas nail set by my ex-colleagues at Boots gave me as part of my leaving pressie last year.
It is not surprising that I used the pink shade first as it is my favourtie colour to paint my nails but here is how it turned out.....
I went out Thursday night to my local Oceana - where I always go - to see Donaeo perform. I thought I would show you what I wore at this fun night out...
Here is how I did my make up....
I hope you liked it!

I was recently having a look over at the Boohoo.com website and couldn't keep my eyes off these wedges!
I am not usually a big fan of wedges but I do like these and anything that stands out, you should all know by now I adore!
Let's think a little ahead here and just imagine hot weather, days filled with shopping, beer gardens and nights you'll never forget! Yes i'm talking about Spring/Summer again as Winter will be over very soon! And what better way to bring in the new season with bright, block colours in our wardrobes?
This is not the time to be shy when there are so many shades we can choose from such as; Coral, Turquoise, Neon Pink, Canary Yellow... I could go on! I am really interested in this trend and I already know that I will be purchasing; some green jeans and hot red shoeboots.
Here are some items I liked....
Just wanted to let you all know my laptop is playing up at the moment hence the lack of blog posts recently! Looks I will be posting as often as I am able to on Richard's PC.
Whilst i'm here I thought I would show you my latest photos added to my modelling portfolio....
Hope you liked!

No7 Exquisite Curl Mascara
For curvy lashes with a sexy flutter. Lashes watch out – the latest mascara offering from No7 will coax them to a more beautifully curved and volumised look, with long lasting curl!
I am a virgin to No7 mascara's so given the opportunity to review the newest mascara to hit No7's shelves as my first ever to try I was keen to do so. By the name of the product I thought it would be perfect given the type of lashes I personally feel make my eyes look good and frame them well.
The emphasis on this mascara is that it curls and volumises at the same time. I decided to test it out for a week to get the full effect of what it can actually do for both day and night looks. For the daytime a natural, curled looked is what I obtained. It was just right and only needed two coats to get this look.
In all honesty for a night time look it is not the mascara for me, it doesn't give me that va va voom effect. Now even using my own technique of appying mascara to gain this look; which is to start at the root of my lashes and extended upwards in a back and forth motion across all lashes, I did not achieve my desired long and thick lashes.
However, I do think with this mascara you will get the curl but not so much the volume. This is my own opinion and what sort of look I want on my eyes. I do not feel that if you want to buy this mascara that you shouldn't because it does curl! Unfortunately I would not purchase this as I can not build up the mascara enough for a dramatic look. To end on a positive note I will continue to use this for the daytime as I can not fault it there!

Here is a shot of my outfit from my night out on Thursday....
I love te colour of this dress, it's so vibrant in person and for only £13.50 reduced from £45 it was a great bargain. Even better when I had a £50 House of Fraser voucher to use from winning a monthly competition at work! Hope you liked it!

I ordered some ankle boots from the team over at Spartoo recently and I wanted to share with you my thoughts. You may have noticed I have ordered from the brand Timeless again which considering they have a great amount of cool brands on the site I didn't think quite possible.
I usually show you the original photo of the item from the website, however for some unknown reason I can not currently gain access to the website on this laptop. But below are the ankle boots I ordered......
I've wanted some brown boots in my shoe collectioin all winter so when I spotted these I was delighted that they are so cheap! If this was not a gifted item for me to review, I would definately have no hesitations in paying that amount for these boots..
I love that they have a cream furry lining on the inside and also the buttons down both sides with give you the option of buttoning the boots or turning the sides over.
The only negative I have about these boots are the quality of the inside lining, I think the material used could have been better? Maybe I am just being picky but I compared them to the Bronx boots I received from Spartoo and the inside lining of those are lush! Apart from that I have no problems!
These are very comfy, keep my feet warm and go with many casual outfits such as leggings etc. I would recommend you go and check out the ankle boots that Spartoo have on offer. Also don't forget to check out the rest of the items in the Timeless range!

Here's an outfit I wore one of the nights I went out at Centre Parcs- Sherwood Forest last weekend.......
I love power suits and I definately think this fits that style. I think it was the right outfit for the night which consisted of American style food and wine! The trousers are quite stretchy around the waist to I had no restrictions and ate til my heart was content hehe!

Whilst I was checking out the Spartoo website I came across one of my favourite brands Miss Sixty! I have never really seen heels from the brand so was intrigued to see what Spartoo had to offer. I was quite impressed; this brand can be quite out there and funky when it comes to the design of clothes I found that the heels are quite cute
The range offers a selection of heels for many occasions but it has to be said not all but this is my own personal opinion. Many of the heels on offer I would suggest are great for daytime wear, there is not a great option for those heels that would set off a party outfit. Having said this I am in no way putting down the brand or the selection, I have spotted a few heels that I would personally purchase exactly for the reason I have suggested above, to wear in the daytime.
I think it's nice to have a pair of heels that set off any casual outfit and the range Miss Sixty currently have to offer via Spartoo is great for this.
Here are some heels I like.....

Incase you didn't notice the look at the moment for your nails is Matte nail polish! I wasn't too sure about this trend at first but it has grown on me the more shades I have seen available to purchase and experiment with.
I have just recently bought black and purple from Avon and will be sure to post a pic of my Nails rocking the trend soon.
Here are some that I liked......
I personally love the polishes in shades of black and grey!
What do you think of the trend?

Quick post really but I wanted to show you a better photo of how I did my hair for the charity event...
I simply cliped both sides of my hair back and gave myself a side swept fringe
So our charity event for Macmillan Cancer and British Heart Foundation took place last weekend and it was a great success!! We raised.....
I am so proud to have been apart of it and to raise that amount is fantastic!! We actually ran out of raffle tickets on the night and and to go and buy more haha! The venue was a sell out and some people had to stand because there were not enough seats!! We have now split the money in half and sent both cheques to the charities now which is fantastic!
I just wanted to share the good news and show you some photo's of the night...
In between us performing I wore the colours of both charities Green and Red in support of them, but as you can see in the last photo I had to take my heels because my feet hurt so bad! Hosting an event is not easy, we were all knakerd by the end of the night.
It was all worth it in the end!
