Heidi Seeker

I stumbled across this website years ago and it's been in my favourites ever since. It's a shop that sells quirky little accessories, gifts and clothing. I'd been after one of their name necklaces for ages, and I finally ordered one a few weeks ago; it's rarely left my neck since it arrived!

I ordered one of the Personalised Psycho Necklaces in the 'Sparkly Blood' colour:
It's a lot brighter red and really glittery in real life but the flash wasn't working properly 

It also comes in 'Purple Ghost' and 'Slime Green', and only costs £6.66 (I love that they chose this 'scary'
price too!)

Postage wasn't too bad either, £2.50 for the UK and the order only took a few days to arrive, definitely within a week. They also offer international shipping which is a bonus.

Favourites
Some things I've had my eye on for a long time:
Biker Cardi - £36 - Here (Can be personalised for £4!)
Disguise Kit - £7 - Here (Full size sunglasses necklace and a full size moustache ring!)
Kitty Stardust Mittens - £8 - Here (Love the Bowie reference...)


What are some of your favourite online shops? xx

Weekend Wishlist

A short one this weekend folks, but there is only one thing I've been wanting all week:
Snow - The weatherman says it's going to snow yet I am yet to see any! Why does it hate me so?

Weekend Wishlist

Brogue Ankle Boots - £68 - Topshop
I tried these boots on a couple of weeks ago and I just can't stop thinking about them, I keep imagining all the outfits that they'll look good with. Don't think it'll be long til these beauties are on my feet :)

Long Knitted Scarf - £24 - Pieces
I really need a new winter scarf and I want one of those really long ones that you can wrap around a few times, ideally in red but this grey one is cute too.

Magnifying Glass Pendant - £22 - Zara Taylor
I love the Zara Taylor pendants but I think this is my favourite one, it works too, which might come in handy at some point?

Dandelion Face Powder - £22.50 - Benefit
I ran out of my Dandelion ages ago and haven't repurchased yet, it's such a useful product to have, it can be used as a blush when built up quite a bit and also as an all over brightening face powder.

Knitted Leggings - £14 - F&F @ Tesco
How festive are these?! I think they're adorable and would look great worn with boots and a cute dress at this time of year. 

What have you been lusting after this week?

Weekend Wishlist

I'm going to start doing a 'Weekend Wishlist' every Sunday I think, of the things that have caught my eye during the week :)

Trilby - £25 - Topshop
I love hats, and I've wanted a winter trilby for a while, this one is lovely with the little feather detail

Vintage Key Necklace - £14 - Galibardy
I've been catching up with Gossip Girl this week and seeing them wearing their key necklaces has made me want one too, obviously I can't afford a Tiffany one though. I adore the bird detail on this, and I prefer gold.

Limited Edition Nail Polish - £7.20 - Paul & Joe 
I'm loving the limited edition floral bottle of this nail varnish, and I've been after a shimmery gold for ages - this one looks perfect.

Bird Print Blouse - £12.99 - H&M
I've been lusting after this little blouse for ages, I love the print and think it would look lovely worn under chunky winter cardigans. 
Get it here (Go to blouses and it's on the third page)
Weightless Lip Creme in Masochist - £21 - Beauté Cosmetics
I've read excellent reviews on Makeup Alley about this lip product and I've wanted it for ages. Red is definitely my favourite shade to wear on my lips, especially in winter,

So that's what I've been after this week, what's on your weekend wishlist?



NOTW: Barry M Dusky Mauve

For the last few days this colour has been on my nails, and it has definitely found a place in my top 10 nail polishes of all time. I just love it, when I bought it I didn't think I would - I'm not really a fan of duo-chromes, but the purple shimmer is lovely when it catches the light and for the most part the colour is a deep purpley-grey. It satisfies my love of dark nail polish perfectly, as sometimes it even looks black (in darkened rooms, which to be honest I don't frequent often lol, but never mind). I've been wearing it with some Andrea Fullerton Nail Stickers on my ring fingers, little silver skulls :)

Jewellery

I love jewellery especially cheap and cheerful pieces which I don't mind getting lost, damaged or broken (inevitable in my case, I'm incredibly clumsy/forgetful). So I thought that I'd show you a few of my favourite pieces. I'll try my best to remember where they're from and how much they were, but some bits are pretty old now and my memory is not what it used to be.

I'll do rings first:

Bird Cage Ring - Dorothy Perkins - I think this was about £4 in the sale


































Large Butterfly Ring - Primark - Around £2-3


































Vintage Gold & Diamond Ring - Inherited 


































Now onto my favourite necklaces:

Gold Squirrel Necklace - H&M - £3.99 (I think)


































Gold Boom Box Necklace - H&M - No idea on the price, not more than £5 though


































Apple Pendant - H&M - £3.99


































Owl Pendant - Primark - £4-5


































Perspex Squirrel Necklace - Primark - £2


































Kitten Heart Locket - H&M Kids Section - £1.99


































And finally my favourite bracelet at the moment:

Charm Bracelet - H&M - £3.99




























What are your favourite pieces of jewellery?

Top 5: River Island

River Island is not a shop that I frequent very often, in my mind it's full of tacky overbranded stuff that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole (What even is a barge pole?), but i've just been perusing the website and was so surprised by what I found that I needed to come and do a blogpost!

So here are my top 5 picks from River Island:
Brown Tooled Satchel Bag - £69.99 - Available Here

Red Bow Trim Cloche Hat - £19.99 - Available Here

Black Fur Lined Ankle Boots - £74.99 - Available Here

Beige Aran Knit Cardigan - £39.99 - Available Here

Cream Pleated Swing Dress - £39.99 - Available Here

Have any shops surprised you lately?

Lush

I have become a Lush addict of late, I can't get enough! I think it's because it's winter and I want to make long soaks in the bath more interesting!

I couldn't believe my luck when the lovely Freya contacted me to tell me that I had won a runners up prize in her giveaway and that the prize was a Lush Bath Bomb!

It arrived safe and  sound yesterday, and the one that she picked was the Calavera, which I was dying to try out after seeing it in The Lush Times recently.




I popped it in my bath last night, and I loved the smell of it; it's all limey. And it has little petals inside of it which float around in your bath (I think there are still some in the bottom of my bath now actually!). 

I definitely need to pick up a couple more of these before they are gone!

Thanks Freya for introducing me to something new from Lush, I really enjoyed my prize!
