Life has taken over lately and my blog has been pushed to the side. Unfortunately, there are more important things for me to be doing at the moment; uni work, keeping up relationships with friends, family, my boyfriend, exercising, etc. Time is speeding past me, but hopefully I'll be back soon when I've got a bit of extra time.

lily charmed necklace (gift) / save the nail by nails inc 45 second top coat / topshop cheek duo in up in the air / primark super cosy tights / bourjois delice de poudre bronzing powder / nails inc hampstead gardens / soap & glory the birthday box set (gift) / accessorize spike bracelet / accessorize coral necklace / real techniques blush brush / urban outfitters cardigan
I went on a little day out in Glasgow last week. I had a browse round the shops and met my friend for lunch. The necklace and soap & glory set are gifts from her for my birthday - she knows me so well as I love them both! For a better look at the necklace, have a look at my post - recently #1.
I went a wander into Boots and spotted a table filled with reduced Nails Inc polishes - I love Nails Inc but find them a little overpriced so I was pleased to see these down to £5. I picked up this unusual mustard shade that I know is unlike anything else I already own. The top coat is a product I've never seen before and is by the same makers of Nails Inc so I figured it would be quite good - for £4 (ish) you can't really complain.
I bought the blush brush to use with my new bronzer and am enjoying the effects so far. I did think the brush would work with cream blush too but it isn't dense enough. Instead I've been preferring to use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush with the Topshop blush I picked up in the sale for a bargain £3! The colours are really gorgeous, a bright coral and a bright pink.
Fleece-lined tights - need I say more? The Urban Outfitters cardigan was in the sale and then further discounted using my student card. Cosy and a bargain!
I had an Accessorise gift card from my birthday so went in to treat myself. I've been after a spike bracelet but wanted something more subtle than others I'd seen so this is perfect. The necklace which I hiding in the photo is one I've had my eye on for a while so I was pleased to finally have an excuse to treat myself to it.
I was also on the look out for a pair of black ankle boots but had no luck - I'm off to have a look on ASOS whilst they're 25% student discount offer is still on. I think it ends tomorrow morning so if you fancy a little online splurge you'd better be fast!
