I feel like I've literally ran out of clothes lately so a major shopping trip is in order. Although does anyone else feel like nothing in the shops are currently taking their fancy? Usually I have a list as long as my arm of things that I want but lately I haven't bought anything. And if you read my blog regularly, you'll know thats highly unusual for me! I've been wearing this River Island split back jumper so much lately as it's the only white jumper I own. The fabric is really lightweight which makes it easy to wear, especially when I'm trekking around uni all day and the weather is so up and down. I'm also wearing my Zara tropical print jeans which I bought ages ago whilst I was on holiday. I love these jeans to death but they've lost their stretch so much lately! I've tried tumble drying them to tighten the fabric but it hasn't mad a difference, any recommendations?

Since I haven't been spending any money on clothes lately, I decided to stock up on some Mac make-up which is always a death sentence! I ended up buying some new eyeshadows and blushes as well as this 'Shanghai Spice' lipstick which really took my fancy. 'Shanghai Spice' is part of the Cremesheen and Pearl collection so it's extra moisturising and has a lovely shine to it. The shade is a frosted neutral pink which has a dark rose tone. It has a semi-opaque colour coverage and lasts fairly well on the lips, I really like how it just slightly darkens the natural tone of my lips. I will sure to post a 'Today I Bought' featuring the other Mac products I picked up once I end up actually buying some clothes!


  1. I'm totally in the same boat I keep going shopping and end up coming back with nothing but beauty products
    Definitely loving that mac shade on you
    S xx

  2. The lipstick shade looks wonderful on you, I love the sheen of it, I usually only ever wear matte shades but I quite like the look of this collection. Gorgeous outfit as always Lydia, especially the boots. xx

  3. I LOVE that nail colour!!! And totally agree, there isn't much out there right now clothing wise :-( Can't seem to find a great deal - this outfit is gorgeous though xxx

  4. Love your outfit.
    Really like your jeans.
    And again your nails are perfect.


  5. That lip colour suits you so well and that jumper is so nice and simple!
