Over the knee boots seem to be everywhere and although I really love the look of them they aren’t really a timeless piece, therefore I really didn’t want to invest too much money in them. I picked these up from Public Desire and was actually very impressed with their selection, there were a few I really liked. I decided to go for the Janine Over the Knee Boots as I like the heel but it isn’t too high or thin making these quite comfortable.

I thought these would be quite easy to style but I actually found them to be a little tricky especially as I have rather generous thighs, everything I tried on with them other than trousers ended up looking a little more Pretty Woman than I had hoped but I soon discovered that the trick is to keep it quite loose up top. The colour and shape of this dress may not be to everyones taste but I think it works really well with these boots.

I’ve also been getting lots of wear from my Daniel Wellington watch, they’re the perfect timeless piece, use discount code DWSabrina for 15% off all their watches.

It’s getting a little colder now though so I suspect I’ll be layering up the coats in my next outfit…

I wanted to give nudes a break last week and was rummaging though products I recently got in and I discovered this absolutely beautiful blue shade from No7.

I haven’t used a No7 polish in quite a while and hadn’t heard much about their Gel-Look Shine Nail Colours so I really wasn’t sure what to expect but the colour is so beautiful I went for it anyway. It applied perfectly, completely opaque in two thin layer and the brush was easy to use. 

Although it looking like a beautiful colour in the bottle I was surprised by just how beautiful it really is and I think it would be in my top 5 polishes for the summer and is a real must have. It is a soft corn flower shade of blue with a really glossy, high shine finish which make it looks almost like a gel manicure. I love blue nail polishes but this is unlike any I own but is really very beautiful and flattering. I was surprised to see it last 5 days with minimal tip wear and no chips which is very rare in my books. 

If you’re looking for something to spend your next No7 voucher on, this is it!

This morning whilst browsing in Boots and picking up a few foundations I noticed that there are brands I trust more than others for certain products and I thought I would share which they are. I know some people are a little scared of drugstore products as there often is anyone to help you chose the best product and there are so many brands it can often be overwhelming. 

I try to stay clear of the very inexpensive brands when it comes to foundation and my go-to has to be L’Oreal, I think True Match is just as good as most of my highend foundations and I have high hopes for Infallible too (picked it up today so will get back to you soon). Other great options are the Bourjois range (although do be careful as my skin is particularly sensitive to these) and Revlon Colorstay if you are looking for good coverage. To set my foundation I almost always use Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder if I want one with a little colour. 

Although it seems every blogger loves the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer I find it to be far too drying my go-to are Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer, Rimmel Wake Me Up and Bourjois Healthy Mix although I have also been loving the Barry M Instant Light Concealer which is great if you don’t need too heavy coverage.

I would be lying if I said I regularly reach for drugstore eyeshadows, it’s not that I think they’re bad it’s just that I love my highend palettes. If I had to pick I do use my Makeup Revolution palette every now and then, the L’Oreal Maybelline Colour Tattoos and I’ve heard great things about the L’Oreal La Palette Nude although I have never tried it myself. 

I haven’t strayed from Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara for a while but before I became so loyal I loved all of the Max Factor mascaras, if it’s volume that you want than I find that they always deliver and would always be my best drugstore bet. 

In terms of lipliner and eyeliner Rimmel are my fail safes, super inexpensive, great colour range and just work exactly as I want them too. Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob is one of my all time favourites. I haven’t yet found a liquid/gel liner that I love (I’m struggling in general with these) but I’d love some recommendations if you have any.

I think Bourjois do the best blushers and bronzers with their baked blush in Rose D’Or being an absolute must have for everyday. 

There are so many great lipsticks in the the drugstore; L’Oreal do some beautiful reds, I regularly reach for my Rimmel Lipsticks but Revlon and Bourjois also have great ranges. 

The one place I always save on has to be nails, I rarely buy highend nail polishes, instead opting for; Barry M, Rimmel and Models Own, the quality is great and the colour range is extensive.

There are some real gems to be found in the drugstore, hopefully this will help you with your journey if you are someone that feels a little overwhelmed/untrusting of drugstore. Every brand has a few good products it’s just knowing which ones they are, if you have any further questions regarding Drugstore makeup head on over to my Facebook Page where I am happy to help

For the last three Christmas’ I have spent December patiently waiting for Boots and Soap & Glory’s half price offer, hoping someone would know and I would find it under my Christmas tree. If you get as excited as me I am pleased to tell you that The Next Big Thing By Hattie Stewart Soap & Glory better than half price box is out Friday!

Boots will be reducing the price from £60 to just £29 for one week only (or until stocks last and they usually sell out pretty quickly.)

Inside are ten full-sized Soap & Glory products, available in two Limited Edition cases designed by London based fashion doodler- Hattie Stewart! One print will be exclusive to Boots.com and the other exclusively  in Boots stores. 

Inside the beautiful box you get: 

HAND DREAM™ – SUPER CREAM 100ml
ORANGEASM™ – BODY WASH 500ml
BUTTER YOURSELF™ – MOISTURE LOTION 500ml
HEEL GENIUS™ – FOOT CREAM 125ml
SUGAR CRUSH™ – BODY SCRUB 300ml
WHIPPED CLEAN™ – SHOWER BUTTER 250ml
THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER™ – BODY BUTTER 300ml
OFF YOUR FACE™ – 3 IN 1 DAILY PURIFYING CLOTHS 
SEXY MOTHER PUCKER™ LIPGLOSS LIP LACQUER in Charm Offensive 7ml
THICK & FAST™ – SUPER VOLUME MASCARA 10ml
A BONUS, PINK DRAWSTRING BAG

This would make a great gift or indeed a gift to yourself and at £29 it’s such a great deal for so many products! It will be released Friday 12 December for one week only but usually sells out quite quickly so I’d recommend picking on up on Friday from either in store or Boot.com

Will you be picking one up?
