hearts on fire





TOP/DRESS: new look | CARDIGAN: peacocks | LEGGINGS: asos | BOOTS: peacocks
NECKLACE: vintage | NAILS: purple haze

I'm in love with this cardigan! I've wanted a cardigan in this colour for ages and seeing Kavita post photos wearing hers was only making me want one even more. Imagine how happy I was when I found this one lying on the floor under the sale rail in Peacocks with a £5 label attached. I had a 40% off voucher so I also picked up these Boots as it worked out that I would only pay £8.40 for them. I've never been a fan of cowboy boots but there's something about these I quite like! I didn't buy much else from Peacocks - my local stores aren't great, they never seem to have any of the nice ranges that the website stocks.

I made an order with ELF last week after Lucy's recommendation of the bamboo flat eyeliner brush. I spent £20 and got so many things. Almost everything is priced at £1.50 and I'll admit I was put off by the low prices in the past because I wasn't convinced the items would be good quality. How wrong was I! Everything I bought is brilliant and I will definitely be ordering again. My favourite purchases include the lucious liquid lipstick in 'cherry tart' (as worn in these photos), which tastes of After Eight chocolates, and the duo eyeshadows which are really pigmented. What are your favourite ELF products?

Oh, and what do we all think of the music video for The Strokes' new song? Personally I love it... and think Julian looks great. ;) I'm already excited for their UK tour in July!

  15. Oooh this is my favourite colour cardigan, nice rich reds!!! I like the boots, and usually I am not a fan either - think its because they are smaller?!
    When Julian first comes on in that first Strokes video it makes my heart skip a beat, so lush!!!! I can't wait either ;)

  16. Cherry - Thanks! The tops not very flattering without a belt :( x

    Amy - Yep, I only got it on Tuesday. :) I think it was £26.99 x

    Sarah - Thanks! In the light the nail polish gives off the same colour as my cardigan! I can't stop watching it, Julian and Nick aaamaazing!

    Alex - Thank you :) I put off ordering for ages but I wish I hadn't, they're so good. x

    Laura - Thank you :) x

    Beth - Thanks! x

    Kativa - Burgandy/raspberry is my favourite colour so I'm zoo glad I found it. I can't see me ever taking it off and I don't blame you for wearing your so often too ;) x

    Robyn - I definitely think it's because they're shorter. They're a little too short though so I need to make sure my leggings are really long and can't really wear socks. It's when he's sitting on the couch half way through that got me! ;) xx

  17. The print on your dress is lovely! I think those boots are great, wish they had them in my local store. Everyone is loving the berry cardigan and I agree, such a nice colour.
    I can't get enough of elf now, so cheap. I really like the lilac nail polish I got from there and my tinted moisturiser but my blush fell apart really quickly and cracked :(

  27. Gem - They've got the boots online too just now, probably means not 40% off though.. :( I bought a blush too and it's been fine so far but I'm going to take care of it so that it doesn't break! I think the slicked hair look is quite nice actually!

    Mia - Thanks :) My friend works at Peacocks so we get a voucher every few months x

    Ash - I've had it on repeat constantly since it came out. Love the video! x

    Amber - I couldn't get over it only being £5. Best buy of the year! :) x

    Claire - Aww thanks! The nail polish is much more amazing in real life! x

    Rachel - This picture doesn't do the nail polish justice - it's perfect! x

    Sophie - Peacocks are a bit hit and miss (esp the stores in my town!) but they're worth visiting every so often. x

    Rachelous - They do have some lovely prints just now, I'm loving new look lately! x

    Char - Thank you :) I think this might be my new favourite outfit x

  29. I love the shirt/dress with the skinny belt, I would never have thought to style it like that when I saw it in store. Lovely colour for a cardigan, I think I'll be investing in one soon.

  31. I love elf orders. Theres always loads because everything is so cheap! I use one of their quads on a regular basis, but i think my favs are their studio brushes. They're all such good quality for the price! x
