Zara Items for Sale

In the last couple of days whilst I was re-organising my wardrobes I came across all these cute Zara shoes I have that just don't get worn. Why? Over the last year I've noticed my shoe size has changed going from a size 4 to a 3.5 and so my shoes are fitting a lot looser. I know there are plenty of Zara lovers out there so I decided I was going to sell some of the shoes I have. I just don't wear them anymore. Two pairs are completely brand new and the rest have only been worn once max twice.

For Sale: Zara Suede Studded City Bag

I've had a couple of emails in regards to whether I am selling any makeup items or accessories. At first I thought no way not at the moment, but then a couple of emails prompted me to reconsider when it came to this particular accessory - the 'ZARA SUEDE STUDDED CITY BAG' featured here.

So many of you have emailed me regarding this particular bag and I went to my bag cupboard and pulled it out its box. Realising I have not once taken it out to use. It's still untouched, brand new with the tags still attached! Makes me feel sick to my stomach that it's not getting any love.

So yes finally I have decided to sell this item. It deserves to go to someone who will love it to pieces more than I do.

The retail price I paid for this bag is £79.99/$132.00, a used version on eBay caught my eye bidding at £80+/$150.00 and still the bidding for it is on going - plus you have to add more on top for postage and packing making the Zara bag retail for way more than what you would have paid at Zara itself!

I would appreciate that the price I paid for it is covered and that if you are interested please don't ask for a better offer. £79.99/$132.00 final price. I have enquired about the postage costs: £5/$10 due to it's weight being suede and chains.

Payment will be accepted by PayPal only. UK or International open.
Please email me on: or leave a comment below.

OPI 'Alpine Snow' Nail Lacquer

I've shared this nail lacquer before - it's OPI 'Alpine Snow' which is a simple bright clean white colour. Yes it reminds me of snow and the colour of my car which is also called 'Alpine'! Coincidence much? I think not when I picked it up I was like heyyyyyyy that matches!!!

What I am sharing is the shape of my nails today 'Squoval'- I use to have super square nails, then I got into pointed or rounded nails because they suit my fingers more, but today when I chose white as my polish colour I decided to have my nails filed down short as they were breaking more easily so I thought they needed to be reshaped and have a new gel coat applied on top to keep them staying strong.

And so I have 'Squoval Nails' - not too square but slightly oval/rounded off as well. I think it compliments the white colour better as it can look quite harsh when too pointed or too square.

Looks so pretty I've been glaring at my nails all day! White is such a clean colour I love it!

All Black Everything with a POP of Color

Here's a look I wore last Friday night for dinner with my colleagues. I love wearing black that's no surprise so I do go balls out with the colour of my accessories I choose!

First up My Makeup: A bold bright lip in pink was my go to choice of colour with a simple nude and black smokey eye, a little bronzer and blush but not too much so the pink lipstick by Limecrime in Pink Velvetine was my choice. I'm so in love with the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and that's what I'm wearing in this post - can you see that luminous glow?!

My Outfit was a simple black dress and wool dress coat, but if you follow my Instagram you must have seen my feature of my new Christian Louboutin So Kate heels. They are a crazy bright blue and so the pop of colour in my post title! My clutch bag I've had for a couple of years now (I think 2010), it's the Louis Vuitton Sobe clutch in Bleu Nuit - dark navy teal blue with gold hardware.

Unintentionally my nails matched my shoes hahaha I think I was going through a phase since my new shoes came LOL. The colour is by Barry M and is called 'greenberry'. So that was my pop of colour for the week! Happy Monday All!!!

My Hair Care Routine

I have finally got round to sharing a hair care routine with you lovelies! This is a highly requested post! I always always get asked about what I use on my hair to get the shine, thickness and length and how is it so healthy?! I don't think my hair is that long I wish it was longer!! But I do think it maintains shine and thickness and is overall very healthy! 

I'll be very honest with you guys - my hair since I was a child has always been thick, wavy, unruly, hard to manage and 'bush monkey' as my brother describes it! But when I found my way around highlights, blow dryers and hair irons my hair started to change, although it became amazingly manageable and colourful I found that as age went on hair gets less thicker and begins to fall out - not to mention damaged! Horror!

Statement Red Leather Jacket

I have wanted a Red Leather Jacket in like forever and I finally found one in Harrods. It's such a soft buttery leather with a snug fit. It's not too biker chic but enough biker chic to look 'cool'. This was one of my favorite looks this week, made me feel like I could get a million things done in a day! Don't you just love it when an outfit makes you feel that way?

I complimented my outfit with my olive Gucci Handbag, the signature red Gucci stripe matched the red in my overall outfit and I also got these awesome red leather gloves a while back.

Patent Red Peep Toe Heels!

Simple eye makeup, blush and bold red lip I used to finish off my look!
Hope you all had a great week!
