Let's Take A Moment... and Appreciate.

Whoa it's AMAZING! I don't even have words... I just can't. It HAS/NEEDS to be mine.
That is all I have to say, just look at it and it's total cuteness and greatness - appreciate the beauty!

Wishlist // Sephora

 Urban Decay Naked 3: Oh, hello there, look how beauuutiful! Yes, it's another girl drooling over the Naked 3 palette... I don't have any of the Naked palettes (almost feel a little embarrassed to say that), so naturally when this pink-toned version was released I was all over it, and have been waiting for it to come back into stock online.

Dior Creme de Rose: I have been hearing and reading a lot about this fancy wee pot recently and everyone seems to be loving it. Now, I am a firm believer in treating yourself to a little fancy something every now and again, and a Dior lipbalm in a sweet little white pot is right up my alley... even thought it does hold a rather steep price tag.

Benefit Blush in 'Rockateur': This really is the wishlist of cult products, I recently went on a little holiday and went to a Benefit counter and swatched this blush, at first I was kinda disappointed but when I got out into the natural light and the sheen really stood out I was sold, and here we are with this wishlist and me having a ramble about a blush I should have bought when I had the chance - first world problems.

L'Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer: This is a product I initially didn't really pay any attention to, however I watched one of Essie Buttons YouTube videos a few days back and she used this and raved about how great it was for highlighting and under the eyes. I can't say I have a major problem with dark under eye circles, all I really look for is something to highlight and bring extra brightness to that area of my face. Apparently this is a really light formula and looks FAB so I'm down to try it!

NARS Creamy Concealer: I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing about this concealer that seems to have taken over, hence why I need it in my life! I have some scarring and darker sports from past blemishes and the odd one (thank god!) that I get now, and some redness around my nose, which I am always looking to somewhat hide and judging from what I have heard this seems to be the 'it' product for just that. I say yes please to this wee thing!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in 'Adore': This is one of those things I have always wanted, but never really gotten around to actually getting. I'm not gonna lie, I think one of the main reasons is because the colour options have always overwhelmed me and I didn't know which one I wanted. Now, after over a year of deliberation (serious, serious stuff...) I have decided I want what Sephora describes as 'shimmering pink', well I think this marks quite a moment in my life - I have finally chosen a Tarte blush colour GO ME!

Anyone have any of these and love/hate them?

Today I Fell In Love With // The 'Weston' by Michael Kors

Today I Fell In Love With // MK

Michael Kors Medium Weston Convertible Shoulder Bag

 Let's all just take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this bag... oh yes, she's a beaut! I have been hunting for a nice bag every since I began obsessing over the Mulberry 'Effie', and I think all us average, designer coveting ladies know that the obsession will never become anything more, nor will it progress to ownership... it's all VERY sad. BUT, the world has been somewhat set right by dear Michael Kors and his 'Weston' bag - I say, amen! The design is very similar to the 'Effie', but with a few more signature Kors details, such as the gold chain detailing. I love that this bag is very casual, and will go with all outfits whether they are day of night, winter of summer - a real wardrobe staple. I'm not going to lie price wise it is still not the cheapest, however it is a fraction of the Mulb's and freaking beautiful, so I say TREAT YOURSELF, something I like to do far too often, but this treat will be a very good friend for years to come, a little MK companion. I say YES!!!

I hope others 'treat' themselves as much as I do... with justification of course... ;)

Kate and Some Pointy Toes

 Sweatshirt: DIY'ed my self // Jeans: Abercrombie & Fitch // Singlet: F21 // Shoes: ASOS // Bag: eBay // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Monica Vinader 'Fiji' // Ring: Karen Walker

So much for being more consistent with my blogging eh?.... I AM REALLY GOING TO TRY!
I am such a comfort dresser on a day-to-day basis, even when I try to step away from it for the sake of variety I tend to always come back to it. After being miserably late in snapping up one of the Reformation 'Kate Moss' jumpers, I decided to embark on the journey of making myself one, and voila! Not quite as good, but for a quarter of the price, NOT BAD! haha I paired it with my Abercrombie & Fitch distressed boyfriend jeans (I can't stress enough how amazing their jeans are), a plain white cami and my 'go to' black spike bottom bag. I decided to pull my pointy-toe heels out to bring a lil' something different to the look, a little bit of class to an otherwise tomboy-ish outfit, if you will. I've really gotten into the whole shoe thing recently and have started experimenting more with different styles, not just the good old sneakers and converse, things are happening! :D
