Project 365/58 OOTN

Hello Ladies, i hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Did you get upto much? I thought i'd share with you my OOTN:

Black Bengaline Mesh Dress: Miss Selfridge
Black Suede Shoe Boots: BHS

I love the shoe boots, so much infact that i bought a similar pair, the only difference is the other pair have a discreet flower attached to the side. I love them, BHS is not normally a place where i would shop for clothes/shoes as i always think that particular market is more directed to the older lady, but these are perfect for me.

Tomorrow is my first day at my new job, eek. A little nervous but excited to be starting a new challenge.

Project 365/56 Models Own NOTD

Models Own Nude Beige, NP075 Nail Polish. I like this shade, pretty self explanatory as it's just as the title of the polish suggests, a Nude Beige.

I really like Models Own polishes, easy and speedy to apply, fab consistency, but best of all the polish last on my nails for approximately three days chip free, result.

Project 365/55 Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara

As the majority of you may already know, Soap & Glory have recently launched their new cosmetics line. I love their skincare products so i've been looking forward to trying some of the brands cosmetics.

Whilst shopping in Boots over the weekend i got to see the new cosmetic products, it was at the end of the day and i was a little rushed for time so i picked up the first thing which i know i use a lot and on a daily basis, mascara.

As with all the other Soap & Glory packaging this too doesn't disappoint, the mascara comes in a pink/gold cardboard box with a retro/vintage looking image at the side. The logo is at the front with information about the product and a list of ingredients at the back. The mascara itself is in a thick black tube with the name of the mascara "Thick & Fast" emblazoned on the front.

The brush itself is large and once applied to my lashes, created fantastic volume. My lashes felt full, instantly lengthened and curled too. The mascara didn't clump at all and was very easy to remove.

I've included a picture of my lashes above, i didn't have any make-up on and just took a quick picture last night for reviewing purposes. I applied the mascara just to the top of my lashes with one coat.

I'm a huge mascara fan and this will definitely be kept in my collection.

You can buy the mascara for £10 at Boots.

Have any of you tried the Soap & Glory new cosmetics line? I would love to know your thoughts.

Project 365/54 My Website of the Month goes to:

Hello Ladies, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. I thought I'd share with you my website of the month which is Ellos,  I've chosen Ellos as it's a newly discovered website for me, which sells lovely items at affordable prices whilst having a little something for everyone whatever your style may be.

For those who haven't heard of Ellos before here's a little information, Click here if you want to know a little bit more.

Who is Ellos?

Ellos is a long established brand in Sweden, having been founded in 1947.

Not only has Ellos grown into the number one mail order brand in Sweden, it has also become a major player in all Scandinavian countries over the last decade.

With the recent launches also into Russia and France, it is now time for the UK to see some of what Ellos has to offer!

We at Ellos pride ourselves on our Scandinavian roots and this is reflected in the clothing we offer, whether it be a flowing summer dress to a funky faux Fur lined coat, you’ll always recognise Ellos for its Natural and simple designs, mixing layers of fabrics with thrills and stylish prints.

Less is very much more here at Ellos and we are sure that when you have taken a browse through our collection, that there is something there for everyone – including you! And with a range of menswear and childrenswear, you’ll find something for the whole family too!

I've put together my chosen outfit below, let me know what you think:

Black Leather Biker Jacket:

 Bermuda Shorts:

Grey 3/4 Length Sleeves Sweater:

Black Leggings:

Black Pixie Style Ankle Boots:

Ellos Snood:

Ellos Satchel:

I love how all the items above fit together effortlessly, therefore minimum effort is required. The weather is getting colder now so i think the above would be perfect for the new Autumn/Winter Season.

I love the city short look, with leggings and cute pixie style boots. The leather jacket is lush, teamed with the snood to make it extra snuggly, one of my fave outfits.

Project 365/49 Studded Bottom Bag

I finally got round to ordering the Alexander Wang inspired Black Studded Bottom Bag from Ebay which a lot of bloggers have been raving about. I love it, it's a good quality bag and really roomy which is a must for me who tends to carry around much more than i actually need, oops.

If anyone wants the link to the ebay seller which i used (i got it from Blogger/You Tube recommendation) then leave me a comment in the comment box below and i'll pop it in the comments for you. I ordered it on Friday and it arrived the next day, very impressed.
