Today I bought #22

skirt: topshop
dress: marks & spencer
printed tee: miss selfridge
black vest: monki
shoes: river island
jewellery: both topshop
body illuminator: nars
foundation: estée lauder double wear

As predicted I had a slight splurge whilst visiting London for my interview today...I was nervous okay! Well, I managed to find the shoes which I previously featured but I'm slightly concerned they are a tad too small. Might try them on again in the morning, someone once told me your feet swelll during the day? Then again I am easily fooled! Also picked up some bright clothing on my travels, I booked my holiday to Marbella the other day so I'm suddenly being drawn to all these Summer clothes. I really like the dipped hem skirt from Topshop, the watercolour print of pastel shades is gorgeous and I think this combined with  a white crop and the drop-down earrings will be a winner for tomorrow night. I never usually shop in M&S but came across this orange dress whilst meeting my momma and really liked the draped shape. I haven't tried it on yet as I still have a face full of make-up and tend to destroy everything I try on! 

I've been after this Nars Body Illuminator for a while now but I was told that it had been discontinued and was being re-launched during June. I managed to pick up the last two from Selfridge's today, it's not exactly a 'fake tan' but adds a subtle glow to your skin giving you that bronzed holiday shade. I've only tested it on my arm so far but will do a full review once I've used it properly. I was also in need of a new foundation and as much as I love Mac Studio Fix I thought I'd branch out and try the Estée Lauder Double Wear after hearing so many rave reviews about it. I love my foundation thick and matte, kinda like Barbie so I hope this lives up to my expectations.


  1. OMG I so want those freedom earrings from Topshop, how cool are they.

  2. Love everything you got! I love the Estee Lauder Max cover x

  3. I always end up shopping when in London for interviews, I think we deserve it! You got some really nice things, especially liking the Topshop skirt and the M&S dress! x

  4. Really like the bright summer clothes. My summer holiday is in Paris, so hardly a beach or anything, but I'm still picking up loads of stuff!
