Would you Adam and Eve it?!

If the title of this post confuses you it's because you aren't familiar with Cockney rhyme and slang. Would you Adam and Eve it? = Would you believe it?

The reason why I chose this title is because of the following items....

My everyday wedges. They go great with skinny jeans, denim shorts, fair isle knit dresses......
And they are comfortable to walk in. Bonus!
How gorgeous/sexy are these?! I love the two tone detail. It's so simple but it looks amazing.

I'm a little bit obsessed with Snoods at the moment! I have another one in BLUE. They are so handy and will definitely keep me snug as a bug this Winter.
I bought this belt large so I could tie it around my waist when I wear my grandad style cardigans. You won't even believe how much it cost!!! I shall reveal all at the end :)
I have a thing about deep berry lips at the moment. Maybe it's because Autumn/Winter is my favourite season and it's such a warm colour.
Hopefully I can pull it off even though I have fair skin. Well if Ms Lowe can do it maybe I won't end up looking like a total goth.
I love the shade of this lipstick and the slight shimmer in it. It's got a great name too..."Royal Raspberry"!
A perfect shade for this time of year and it will disguise my red wine lips perfectly at parties!! I have to say that I am a massive fan of Barry M. They every shade you could imagine in their nail polishes, lipsticks and eyeshadows.

So back to "Would you Adam and Eve it?". The wedges, snood and belt are all from Primark. Yes P.R.I.M.A.R.K.
I could not believe that Primark would design a pair of wedges like the two tone ones above. 
Lace up wedges: £18.00
Suede/Faux leather wedges £20.00
Red Snood £4.00
Leather belt (Yes REAL leather) £2.00

As I'm bottom of the food chain in PR, I don't have the largest salary, so I'm on a tight budget! Shops like Primark and H&M are great for me, although sometimes you need to enter their stores with a bucket load of patience and a calm head! Especially the Primark in Marble Arch....absolute MADNESS!!!

Think I'll take my suede/faux leather wedges out tomorrow for a spin :O)

Bits and Bobs

Took a little jaunt today to Westfields shopping centre. Of course I did not come away empty handed! I did manage to refrain from spending too much, and just bought a couple of little bits and bobs.

Hair clip from H & M

Snood from H & M
A sweet little hair clip that will see me through the party season and a versatile snood for chilly nights.
I also spotted these wedges on H & M. I l.o.v.e them! Check out the glitter detail....


Wedges £29.99 H & M
Think I'm going to snap these up before they sell out! By the way does anyone know where the word "snood" came from???! Can't quite work it out myself.....

Dress your hair up

Most of us spend about 10 minutes in the morning doing our hair because we're running out the door to catch the train....well this is my routine in the morning. But, when I do have the time, I like to treat my barnet to something a little fancy.

I've had my eye on these little treats for a while now. It's amazing what a little flower or bow in your hair can do to brighten up your look on these dull winter days.

Johnny Loves Rosie £12.00

 Johnny Loves Rosie £35.00

Rock n Rose £32.00

Rock n Rose £17.00

ASOS £6.00

ASOS £6.00

Or you could do it the old fashioned way and tie a scarf around your head. Bet if you raid your granny's scarf drawer you'll find some right gems in there!

These are some of my headscarves. A mixture of thrifted and Primark, or as I like to call it "Primani" darling.

Enjoy the weekend!
