Marrakech Goodies

Evening beauties! How are you all? I've had a bit of a dicky belly today, must have been that curry I had last night! Haha. Naughty! Thought id do a quick post on some of the things I bought whilst out in Marrakech. I didn't really get much because I just found it hard work. You have to keep bartering with everyone to get a half decent price- I found it pretty stressful! Haha. But what I will say, is that on the whole, it is crazy cheap in Marrakech. If you ever go, leave some space in your suitcase to bring goodies back!

I got two pairs of earrings & two bracelets. They worked out at about 80p each! How crazy is that? In retrospect I probably should have bought a few more for that price!

I also got this across the body bag. I LOVE IT! Its pretty spacious, and I love how its got a cute little pocket under the flap. Its real leather and cost around £18! The only thing I'm not loving about it is the smell….it definitely smells like leather. We went to visit the tanneries in Marrakech, which was experience to say the least, but the smell just remind me of that! Does anyone know how to get  rid of the smell of leather?

As I was in Marrakech I also got some Argan oil & solid perfume. The Argan oil smells completely different to what I had bought online, so I'm not sure if I got tricked before or this time? haha. Either way I like to think that the Argan Oil i got from Marrakech is the real deal.

I shall leave you with a little something I got in one of the souks…

Little Nell

hey beauties!! How's your week going? I've got a training day at work tomorrow, which is good because it means I finish earlier Smile I'm just counting down the days till I'm off to Marrakech! Cant wait!!

 

A few weeks ago I placed an order with Little Nell for the cutest rings I've ever seen.  I went for the Gold Ring Trio where you get 3 rings- 1 heart ring, 1 cross ring & 1 star ring.  All in all it came to £8 including p&p- BARGAIN! Of course, when they came I completely fell in love with them. Just look for yourself…..

I've worn them altogether just for photography purposes, but I have been wearing them separately.

What do you think? Gorgeous aren't they!?!  xxx

L.A Colors

Hey beauties!! Half way through the week!  I went out to Caribbean restaurant last night with a friend of mine. Good, wholesome food. No frills. Loved it! Any weekend plans?

I was in the Shepherds Bush area today, so I had to pop into Westfields. I'm  trying to budget a bit. Ideally save a few more pennies to go towards travelling- or just for a rainy day! Soooo with that in mind i didn't really do a proper shop, I just headed to Beauty Base where they sell L.A Colors nail varnishes for 99p! So I bought 5…I just cant resist a good bargain! Plus it satisfies that urge I have to purchase SOMETHING! haha.  Bit of a fail really because I already have one of the colours..haha. Check out my nails with Luscious Wine on here

Red Lips

Helllllloooooo!!!! Any exciting weekend plans? I'm sure you have all heard of the amazing make up brand MUA. Well, I have discovered one of my fave lip colours. Im a big fan of red lips- well bright lips in general. Nude lips don't really suit my complexion. I have been wearing MUA’s lipstick in Shade 1 every single say for about 2 weeks now. I absolutely LOVE it!!

What do you think? Do you like bright lips or do you prefer nudes?? xxx
