BIRTHDAY HAUL

I finally made it shopping to spend some of my much appreciated birthday money. I don't know about you but I always like to plan what I'm going to spend my money on, months in advance. For me I had been admiring from a far, something stunning in the form of a Rose gold Michael Kors watch. I think that Mr. Kors has got watch design down to a fine art. I don't think that even the big players, such as Cartier and Chanel have the same style and meticulous attention to detail. The other fascinating thing about Michael, (were friends don't you know) is the reasonable price tags of all of his time pieces. I had lusted after this watch for so long, I had even envisioned myself wearing it, and with which outfit, how sad am I! On Monday I finally got my hands on it. Some may call it masculine, others may say it's ugly. I would say it's timeless, powerful and sexy! It's an I don't need a man type of watch. I keep hoping people will ask me the time, just to flash this unique piece. The subtle glow that the rose gold gives off is incredibly flattering, to the paler skin of winter months. The face is also intricately designed with a small crystal on each dial, resting on the beautiful feminine rose face. Honestly I don't think I could be more in love with a watch, even if it cost 10 times as much. This will be the watch that counts the seconds of my life for years to come.  


I was also sucked into the YSL counter; I know that is such a bad idea, too many amazing lip products for a girl like me to handle. I was immediately drawn into the beautiful pink tones of Tea Rose/ 148. This is a subtle, natural pink; great for all you nude pink lovers. It has the light, luxurious feel of all YSL lip products, as well as the stunning, chic gold packaging. I was just about to hand my card over, when the coy girl mentioned a lip gloss ideal for Tea Rose; and just like that a new favourite lip combo was unleashed on the world. Yes give it up for the stunning Golden gloss number 38. Made with real gold, oh how posh I am! It's smooth, moisturising, shimmering in an illuminating manner, and well the perfect accompaniment to any nude pink lipstick. Why do YSL do it to me; who can resist the products, packaging and most importantly the succulent fruity scent of all their lip products; I go through them like no bodies business! Go grab yourself one of these; or as a Christmas set; accompanied by two nail colours of your choice. A heads up they have an amazing rich purple and gold to choose from; mesmerising! 







Have a great weekend,
until next time...........

  4. Thanks, I couldn't love Michael kors watches more! They are so on trend. I really want some Rose gold jewellery to match but can't find much about at all in the uk! Devestated! YSL is extremely pricey but is soooo worth it, you just feel so glamourous whipping out the gold packaging. Makes you feel like 'someone' xox
