Sharp Edges.....

I have been wearing a lot of pastels, nudes and sugary colours just lately but sometimes I feel like getting back into black. The weather was not so nice today (well, it was chilly this morning!) so out came my ancient black skinnies! I paired them with a silk mix blouse to avoid the look becoming too gothic, but mixed up the texture of the look with the leather jacket and chiffon scarf.

Jacket, Jeans, & Shoes: Topshop, Blouse: Quiksilver, Necklace: Bay, Ring: Rachel Leigh, Scarf: Alexander McQueen

I spent most of my day on my mobile phone trying to win £400 on the my-wardrobe Facebook competition. You had to write why you deserved to win the money to spend on the site every hour for your chance to win. So I tried rhymes, a fashion cv, begging, pleading, outlining what I would do with everything I no avail. Oh well-I'm sure the 9 winners were deserving! In any case my desire for a prize was placated this evening when I won another Benefit lippy on the Flake promo. I can see how this is heading-I'll have a perfectly made up face, and a big fat gut! I chose a lipgloss this time in a pretty peach shade. How lovely to win something! I've won twice now so get on it girls, I reckon the lippies are there for the taking!

So tomorrow my car is due its MOT, then I shall be seeing a very special friend of mine, then back to the Boy's in the evening for football and maybe a curry :) So I think it will be a nice day off tomorrow! Then I can start figuring out my finances, I am hoping to pay off my credit card in full at the end of May so I will have no debt, whoop! Then I can start planning my key summer purchases. The spring items I still hope to get are my Jones clogs (so late I know, but I think I will wear them all summer long too. And since speaking to a dear friend of mine, Lina, who also has them, I am even more determined to get them!) Also I still want to buy a Pringle bag I've seen and a couple of other pieces.
Speaking of my friend Lina, she has a gorgeous blog called, which is full of loads of smashing beauty tips and tricks, as well as product reviews. One product I'm considering purchasing is a shampoo by the LA Science brand, which claims to make your hair grow quicker. I so want to believe this is true, but my cynical side tells me that it can't possibly work! Can it?! Answers on a postcard please!
