dotty






dress: topshop | ring: topshop | necklace: me & zena via red door gallery | lipstick: barry m no. 62

This is attempt number 2 at trying to wear this pink lipstick that a friend bought me for my birthday. I think I'm going to admit defeat and go back to my usual red because I simply can't get used to how bright it is. It doesn't quite look it in the photos, but in person it's almost the same tone of pink as a highlighter pen! OH WELL, I TRIED.

Some of you may recogonise the dress from my latest week in photos post, only in a different colour. It was in the Topshop sale for £10 and I couldn't make up my mind which I prefered - so I bought both! They were originally £26 each, so it makes sense right? I'm also wearing my new Me & Zena necklace that my friend bought me for my birthday from Red Door Gallery (which is the cutest shop ever!) in Edinburgh. It's been out of stock on the Me & Zena the website for months now and my friend amazingly managed to track one down for me!

The lovely Sarah from A Million Dresses posted about my nail art shop this morning and has included a little discount code in her post! I've also just added my first LIMITED EDITION DESIGN (which are my popular bananas!) which you can buy here. Hurry before they sell out!

  5. BLOODY HELL YOU LOOK GORGEOUS Charlene! Love the pink lipstick, I too know what you mean!I have some form of bright pink ones which I think is Barry M? I also got some more fushia ones (I think l'oreal) to ween myself in! I Personally find that using a lip gloss over the top helps, I think I use that lip shine thing? I find that it helps tone the colour down a bit! xxx
