MAC Archie's Girls 'Betty Bright' lipstick

I've had my Archie's Girls picks for a couple of weeks now, and I wanted to get a good wear out of them before I reviewed them. This is one of the two lipsticks I brought, 'Betty Bright' is a satin finish lipstick, which means its a semi matte - not alot of shine and voluminous colour, however be sure to pack some lip balm underneath if the weather has chapped your lips as this beauty will cling to every dry patch you have. MAC describes it as a 'Light vibrant peach' which I'd say is pretty spot on, in my eyes in turns of comparison I'd say your looking at a day time wear viva la glam 'Nicki' , Perfect for spring and looks great with a warm blusher on the cheeks, I'm happy with this purchase and if your looking to delve into the Archie's collection and want a safe bet I'd say pick this one!

Have you brought anything from 
 the Archie's girls collection?

Skulls and roses

Midi dress - £7.99 Ebay HERE
Boots - £16.99 Primark
Cardigan - £12.99 Ebay (Old)

I've become such a fiend for eBay again, my funds are stupidly low right now so I'm forever hunting for a good bargain. I have'nt seen this midi around just yet so I'm hoping I'm one of the first to grab it - for £7.99 its not bad atall, first long sleeved midi I've put on where I have'nt felt like nanny mcphee! anyways.. besides looking like a gothic princess, what do you guys think?

Will you be grabbing an eBay midi bargain?

Southampton street style 001

So here is the very exciting project I've been harping on about forever, as a new feature to my blog I'm going to be papping Southampton fortnightly for street style inspo! so with camera and my handwritten thankyou's and blog URLs in hand, Luke and I scouted Southampton for some fashionistas.. needless to say we were not disappointed  Thankyou to everyone who was kind enough to stop and let me take a picture of you! ...

This was my pick for best street style this week! Love the Wildfox-esque vintage sweater and the awesome boots!

Going onto trends lots of lovely ladies were rocking oversized fur coats bringing abit of effortless class into their day wear...

 Check out the 90's grunge styling on this lot! 

The outfit in the middle is my fave, this girl was radiant! These girls have got winter layering down to a T...

By far my favourite group of the day, looking like a miniature girl band! loving the casual look, dungarees are going to be a must have this summer...

I am smitten with this beautiful neon Prada bag! all these girls are rocking camo' coloured jackets an effortless way to keep up to date.

So there we have it, the first in what I hope are many street style blog posts!
 if you are a male reader and would like me to do some male street style photos .. drop me a line! 

Hope you enjoyed !

Monochrome mango

Striped silk shirt - £10 Primark
Orange, gold and chrome necklace - £5 Newlook
Disco pants - £30 River Island
Black canvas vectras - £20 Topshop

Lipstick - Bourjours Rouge edition '10'

Monochrome has been everywhere over the SS '13 catwalks and I've been dying to get involved in the action so needless to say when I saw this silk t shirt in Primark I snapped it up. Its the same silky material as the Topshop polka dot one at over half the price - however it does come up really small so I got a 14 in this if your looking to grab one. I also discovered I can just about pull off orange lipstick! this statement necklace and Bourjours lipstick have became quite the duo in my wardrobe!
Apologies with lack of posts recently! Uni and blogging don't go so well!

Have a lovely week!
