OOTD and Mini Haul!

Hello sweeties. I was so incredibly tired today, I stayed awake most of the night and had to be in college by 9am to sit an exam (booo!) so sorry for how tired I look in that photo. I'm thankful I did a ton of revision in college yesterday though, I have a feeling that I did well in that exam :)
Anyways, so I was in a very red mood today, probably because of all the snow that fell last night so it made it feel a little like Christmas.
My trusty high-waisted skinny jeans are from Topshop (although over a year old now).
Red shirt is from New Look.
Large cross necklace is from Topshop.
Hair clip is Claires Accessories.

After college I ventured into town in the thick snow, only meant to have a look but ended up coming back with these bits. Pretty pleased with everything but now I'm avoiding buying anything until 25th of February when I go to the Vintage Fair in Lincoln.
Boots. I actually went into New Look to buy some different boots, but after trying on these ones and the pair I was originally after, I found that these ones were more comfortable on my feet which was better as I been really wanting some heeled boots that are comfortable to wear to college, town etc...instead of just on a night out. I think it will certainly be a challenge to try and find an outfit to go with the colour of these boots though, as I don't have any clothes the same colour.
Book. As I've recently become a huge reader again, I've been trying to find a good book to read after I've finished with The Hunger Games which is what I am currently reading. I've heard good things about Water For Elephants so I headed over to Waterstones and got it for £4.99.
Necklace. The gorgeous feathered/glittered/chain necklace is from Topshop, for an amazing £1.50! I have had my eyes in this piece for months and months and months, and finally it had been reduced to an amazing price! I never bought it before as it was £16.50, which is quite expensive, so I never bothered, but I happened to notice this in the sale and it had to be mine, I'm so happy with it.
Nail polish. Finally, the nail polish is by Technic and is from a local shop in my town, but I'm aware that they are available in most Cities. I'm not completely sure but it's worth Googling. This nail polish shade is called 'Carnival' and it is a stunning multi-coloured glitter. I love how it goes with the glitter on my necklace.
I may have a review up of this nail polish at some point if anyone would like to see one?

Outfit of The Night - 7/2/12

It's that day of the week again when I go to the pub, so I've done another OOTN post.
It was very cold tonight so I wore both a blazer and a fake leather jacket, which isn't clear to see in this picture taken with my horrible webcam.
This is also my favourite outfit right now too, because I like how the jumper/dress looks with the belt around it.
For shoes I was just wearing my college ballet flats that I wear all the time.

Jumper/Dress - River Island
Fake leather Jacket - Primark
Warm Knitted Leggings - Either Matalan or Primark (not sure :S)
Blazer - F&F at Tesco

Review: Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara.

Hello sweeties,
so I have been buying this mascara since July and it is defiitely one of my favourite mascaras, and I felt like doing my first review on it as I haven't seen any reviews about it yet and really wanted to share how good it is! This is by far one of the best mascaras I have ever used.
It's says 'length and definition' on the bottle, and that is exactly what it gives your lashes!
The length it gives is amazing, I have slightly long lashes already, so this gives even more length to them which I love.
It doesn't go on thick either, it goes on quite subtle but it definitely makes a difference to how your lashes look.
I prefer this one over the Big Fake False Lash Effect mascara from Collection 2000 that everyone has been raving about. I find that the Big Fake mascara is quite clumpy when I used it, and it didn't separate my lashes very well.
With Skyscraper, it separates you're lashes so well, and I usually have trouble finding a mascara that can separate my lashes(the lashes on my right eye are weird and look stuck together all the time) so I'm very pleased with how good this separates lashes.
I'm quite disappointed that I haven't seen any reviews about this mascara yet, I'd love to know if you guys have tried it and what you think about it.
This mascara is only £4.99, and I would recommend this to everyone to try it out at least once, before splashing out on something that costs a lot more.
So I think this is going to be a personal favourite of mine for a very long time.

I went to the pub last night and here's what I wore. Sort of wish I hadn't worn a dress though, it was so cold outside, really looking forward to the Summer when it's warm :)
Sorry for the phone pic, this was taken in the pub toilets so obviously I didn't have my Nikon with me.

Jacket - Primark
Bag - Primark
