No camera, no blogging

Hey guys,

Sorry it's been so long, experiencing real withdrawal symptoms now! The reason there have been no posts is that I currently don't have a camera, (although I am getting one for Christmas ;)).
Can't wait to show you all my amazing new stuff!

Thank you so much for bearing with me,

Happy blogging and please do stay tuned!

Grungy tights

Hiya everyone :)
Sorry about the tardiness of this post, it's so difficult to take pictures atm! I feel really bad too because there are really good settings around where I live. So, no still no photos. Maybe tomorrow? (Maybe not seems more likely...)

Anyways... Today I wanted to write a post about tights. Hey we all wear them! With dresses, skirts, shorts, even under jeans! Whether they're sheer, shiny, bright, dull, thick, woollen, footless or whatever. But there is one thing I can't stand with tights and that's when they become ''tights with holes'', or ''laddered tights''...
I see countless numbers of people wondering around the streets with huge holes in their tights. Why? Of course, it is highly plausible that you can get up with nice new tights, leave the house and ladder them just getting on the bus or catching them on your bag, but these people have put varnish on to stop it spreading (by the way it's already 8cm wide!), and you see them again and again, these same girls with laddered tights everyday...
Grunge? Nope. If they're trying to accomplish that look it's really not working.
Stylish? Nope. Not that either, how can holes be stylish? How can ladders all the way up your leg look nice? It really does beat the hell out of me. So please, if anyone knows why people do this, please please enlighten me because... I really don't get it.
What do you think? Do you think it looks nice? I would love to hear what you all think of it!

Anyway, hopefully an OOTD post coming pretty soon...
Happy blogging and stay tuned :)

Shoe porn.

Hey everyone :)

After pushing it off (for like 10minutes!) I decided to have a look online at New Look's 25% discount off of selected lines of ... SHOES! I am completely and utterly obsessed with shoes and if given the chance would fill my bedroom with them. They are my holy graal, they make or break an outfit and therefore they are the worst thing to put on sale for me. High heels are my upmost favourite though, a nice classy pair of heels will save you any day of the week. Anyway, enough blabbering, it's Shoe Porn time!
Take a look at New Look's sale, you won't be disappointed, the shoes are amazing...
Here are a few of my favs...


So what do you think? Have you had a look at the New Look shoe sale?

Happy blogging and stay tuned :)

Divinity in Winter

Hey everyone :)

I'm back with an OOTD post ;) This is what I wore the other day, these tights are amazing, they're from Primark and I think they're beautiful. Aswell as capturing the spirit of Christmas and Winter they are elegant (can't be doing with all those big fluffy winter jumpers!)








The top is from New Look as are the shoes (still available in store!). The tights are from Primark, the simple black cardigan is Zara and the cyan coloured mini skirt is Forever 21 ;)

I teamed my bright blue skirt with this outfit to liven everything up a bit! No dull in this house ;) Do you often team a bright coloured item when the rest is black?

Happy blogging and Stay tuned,

Home and away

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all okay :)
Sorry about my absence for the past week. Internet was down, and I haven't been able to access my blog at all. (In that respect my Blackberry is about as much use as a chocolate teapot...).

Anyway, I have been way too busy to take photos, I have literally been living in trackies to move furniture around at what not but now I'm back to normal again (almost) ;)

Christmas is just around the corner as I keep being reminded... Is it that time of the year already? I'll have to start buying prezzies ;) Have you started your christmas shopping yet? Have you got the ultimate Christmas party dress?

Happy blogging and stay tuned :)

Shake your Boot-ie; Competition by Barratt's and "Hello, Terri Lowe"

Hello everyone :)

I hope you're not all fed up with all these competition posts, there aren't that many really, it's just that they have been all recently... Anyways :) I was sent an e-mail by Kieron from Barratt's inviting me to participate in this lovely competition to win £70 worth of shoes and all you need to do is pick your favourite shoes from their website.

To find out more about this competition click here: http://www.helloterrilowe.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/a-boot-iful-giveaway.html

Now, I don't like "boring" shoes, I like the extreme shoes, the really high ones, or the really bright ones... On this particular web-site, I have found some really high ones...

/!\ Beware /!\ There are a lot of studs ;)


  • The studded Litas on the far left of the picture are Truffle Stud Trim Lace up Ankle boots. I already own  a pair of Litas from Truffle (that are bright pink) and they are really comfy :), I wear them as much as possible and really want a black pair (preferably studded) to wear with anything and everything ;) Isn't black great??



  • The shoes on the top right of the picture are Truffle Stud Trim Wedge Ankle Boots, they are priced at £36. No, they're not expensive and yes, look at them, they ARE amazing. (They would go perfectly well with the Black Evening Dress I got from River Island (that I need to show you by the way!)).



  • The high heels on the bottom left of the picture are (the cheapest ever??) Zebra Print Concealed Platform Court Shoes by Sherbert for £18 !! Yes, £18 (aren't they cute??). These shoes have 2 reviews and both are positive giving 5stars each! Have I managed to sell them to you yet?



  • And last, but not least, the wedges on the bottom right of the picture are Woven detail platform wedge sandals by Truffle. They are priced at £31.50. I find the colour amazing (although they also have them in black and pink) 
There :) I hope you enjoyed this post, and please tell me if you take part in this competition, I would love to see what you picked! Do you think I made some good choices?

Happy blogging and stay tuned :)

#4 Nail frenzy- Happy halloween!

Hiya :)

Yes, it's another nail tutorial, but I just had to get this up before Halloween. So the usual disasters happened, my first (beautiful) attempts got knocked about and/or squished (who peels potatoes with wet nail polish anyway? oh yeah, that would be me...), and then on the photos that show cute little "things", I have nail polish everywhere :( So you will have to excuse all these lame problems I had and admire my cute little... Pumpkins and ghosts :D

You will need:
- Black or deep purple nail polish
- Orange nail polish
- White nail polish
- A couple of cocktail sticks
- Patience (I don't possess this personally)
- Nail polish remover...





I apologise for the awful photo quality & for the slobber (which was removed by the way!!)

New post coming soon :)& no Wednesday's dream wish list tomorrow as I have no time :P

Happy blogging and stay tuned,
Ellen xxx

#3 Nail frenzy- 1up!

Hiya :)

Quick little nail tutorial today featuring... TOAD! (From Mario for those of you that don't know him (shame on you by the way ;)). Toad is the cutest little creature ever so I have decided to make him a special little place on my nails :). The end result wasn't completely satisfying as I don't own a black nail polish (now it's shame on me!). As soon as I get some money I will be purchasing a black nail polish... Anyway, here's how I did it :
You will need:
- Red nail polish
- White nail polish
- Couple of cocktail sticks
- Patience
- A picture of toad
Isn't he cute??
I used a Lancôme red nail polish (Miss Coquelicot)

I applied a standard base coat and then applied the red

I did the white dots just by blobbing but I draw Toad with a cocktail stick
There :) What do you think? If you have any questions regarding this tutorial don't hesitate to ask :)

Happy blogging and stay tuned,
Ellen xx

Bambi babe

Hey everyone :)
I just want to show you my new jumper from HandM, it is absolutely gorgeous and I love to wear it, it goes with anything (literally) and it's soo warm!








I teamed it with my new Hidden Heel high tops... I had been looking for a pair of these for ages as you already knew and when I finally found these (in Primark!) for £20 !! (Can you believe it?) I was over the moon, they look really expensive, are very comfortable and are well made. They are a nice colour and I would happily wear them day in day out. The leggings are HandM also, just from the basic collection.

Sorry about the rubbish photo quality, hopefully i will be getting a new camera at christmas (woop woop!).

Today I have painted my nails in a special little way and if I have time I will write that tutorial tomorrow. I'll give you a clue: it's 1 up! Hehehe

Anyway,
Happy blogging and stay tuned :)
