I've spent the last few days being a totally recluse finishing my university work so treated myself to a trip to the Bullring. I bought this Zara floral top during the Summer but I still think it's quote versatile to wear during the Winter too. I've worn it with my new Asos Ridley ripped jeans which I also own in a lighter shade of denim. I've worn them to absolute death to this darker pair will be a great addition for toning down lighter outfits like this. For anybody interested in purchasing these, I would say the sizings are pretty true to the Topshop denim sizing chart with the optional waist and leg lengths. I'm also wearing my Zara gold strap boots which I bought whilst I was in Marbella during the Summer. As much as I love these boots, the metal strap across the front is quite tight so these aren't as comfortable as I would like them to be!

I've always been a big fan of red lips but I just find they usually get quite messy if you're going for lunch or dinner and tend to smudge easily. I also suffer from quite dry lips during the Winter and I find the worst lipsticks for this are Mac. I picked up the Rimmel Apocalips 'Big Bang' lip lacquer last week as when these first launched I was really pleased with a couple of shades I bought. I find the colours are really bold and stay on the lip for a long amount of time. I also used a Kevyn Aucoin lip liner to prevent the colour from bleeding and give the lip a neatened edge. I'd highly recommend this lip lacquer if you're wanting to achieve the perfect red lip with a strong colour and glossy finish.
