H&M has done it again. As soon as this dress came in delivery I knew I had to own it. Sadly it had to be kept off the shop floor for a few days until it's launch. I soon grabbed it yesterday when it made it's entrance to the shop. Maybe it was the price, or it's stunning shape. Probably the shocking price of just, £9.99. That's right, £9,99. Also with my staff discount it worked out to only £7.49 even cheaper! The best part about this dress is it's already available in a different pattern for £24.99. This dress is apart of H&M's new value for money products. There's also a faux brown leather skirt which is only £7.99! that's cheaper than Primark! Sadly both the dress & skirt aren't online yet, so I'd pop into your local.

If you saw my previous post you will of seen I attended a Bobbi Brown event, and learnt a thing or two about creating the perfect smokey eye. (that's not too hard either!) I decided I'd take on the tips and trial them out on myself, on camera. I've been meaning to make more Youtube videos for a while now. However when it comes to the editing I either get bored, or think I look like a tool. I will say my editing isn't the best and I'm not looking at the camera much as my mirror was to the side. oops. Also some footage did get deleted so You do only see me creating my base and the eyes. Hopefully you can see how easy the look is to create!
Over all I'm really happy with the outcome of the look, also as I literally filmed me playing about with the products for the first time. Also my first time trilling Gel Liner and I have to say I LOVE IT! I've decided I'll go into more detail on each product in their own review in different posts.
PRODUCTS USED FOR THE LOOK
(I was kindly gifted with the products from Bobbi Brown for my consideration and honest review. No other compensation was received for this post or video)

The other weekend I made my way to Merry Hill Shopping centre for a spot of shopping with my darling paige, and her family. Merry Hill has always been a favourite of mine for it's easy access, and of course the beautiful thing called late night shopping. amen. Over at Merry Hill they also hold a number of events through-out the year to show off the latest styles and trends that the centre has to offer. Last weekend it was all about the Autumn/Winter trends, my fav!
Over the weekend they had a range of activities and offers on for the public. From personalising your own canvas bag, to watching the models work their stuff in one of the amazing shows that were shown throughout the weekend in a range of places throughout the centre. There was also Artists Doug Hyde in the Whitehall Gallery showing off his amazing collection. I loved his pieces especially the person and the dog. We all know I have a soft spot for a dog. While at the centre we made sure to check out all the amazing activities which really provided something for everyone.
I was kindly gifted with a lovely goody bag, and a gift card. I ended up getting a two-piece I'd seen on Primark's instagram which luckily I finally hunted down in Merry Hill! I then had some money left over to stock up on essentials like my winter tights! After a spot of shopping we then made our way to Nando's for some yummy chicken, I really need to lay off the Nando's I'm going far too often.
Over all I had a fab time once again at the centre and really enjoyed the activities that were put on for the weekend!

Earlier this week I made my way into Birmingham to attend an event at House of Fraser to celebrate the launch of the new Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Sparkle. At the event we were greeted with drinks and nibbles before being introduced to the the team. We were then guided step-by step by the application and how to create a quick and simple smokey eye in minutes! My favourite eye-look has always been the "smokey eye" however it's always been something I can either smash. or look like a complete and utter... you know.
We were shown two looks on the evening and both were stunning! They also showed the look on two completely different models to show how different a smokey eye can look on everyone! I really liked the looks that are going to be perfect for this party season! I haven't yet tried out the look on myself. However I do plan to film it and create a little post so there's something for you to look forward to! I will also go into a lot more details about the amazing products I was kindly gifted with from the event, which will be used to create my look!

Yes another outfit all H&M, but let's just consider how beautiful both pieces are. I love this jumpsuit. When it came in delivery at work I was instantly in love. Also with dark florals begin big this A/W I knew it had to be added to my wardrobe. I think the long sleeves is also great, a lot of people will only see jumpsuits for the summer time, but the adding of a long sleeve allows the look of a perfect A/W outfit.
Then the boots. Do I even need to explain these? no I'll just let you admire them.
