Me today & a Matalan dress bargain!

Today i have gone for comfort, im feeling sorry for myself as we had to go to Tesco for our weekly food shop. I hate spending money on food when theres so many fabulous clothes and shoes out at the moment! Cant have the family starving though can we?! I am now sitting on my bed with the ipad with my dog Charlie looking at me. Think hes wanting a walk. Its nice to escape the mad house for awhile!


Face- Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, VIVO baked bronzer in Bronzed shade 2, VIVO blush and highlighter duo in Sugar Candy shade 2.
Eyes- Rimmel liquid eyeliner in black, Dior mascara in black, the highlighter part from the VIVO blush above,
Eyebrows- HD brow palette.
Lips- Barry M lipstick in shade 62 with Bourjois Docteur Glamour lipstick in 17 Rose requinque.

I ordered a top from River Island the other day, it was the grey one with a black bow that i posted about in the week. Well it arrived yesterday and didnt look good on me so i took it back to the store and exchanged it for this New York City tshirt, i love the rolled sleeves on it.

This is my favourite cardigan EVER. I bought it from Matalan in two sizes too big so its nice and snuggly. I love the dusky pink colour of it :-)

New York City tshirt, River Island, £15.
Rib Mohair Boyfriend Cardigan in Deep Rosewood, Matalan, £16.

How are you spending your Sunday?

Now onto the Matalan bargain. I went into town yesterday and had a look in Quiz. I found this stunning dress for £49.99. Its perfect for the Christmas Party season. I wanted to buy it so bad, but couldnt afford too :-( boooo!

When i get home my sister texts me, shes bought a new dress. A long sleeved, all over sequinned one. Nooooo! Shes bought MY dress?! But then she said it was from Matalan for £25! Thats half of what i was willing to pay in Quiz. I decided to check it out for myself, surely it wouldnt be as good quality? But it is, its gorgeous! The only difference is (apart from the colour obviously) is that the Quiz dress has rectangle sequins and the Matalan dress sequins are rounded. But they both give off the same amazing sparkly effect. I actually prefer the blue, its a nice alternative to black.

Which do you prefer?


  1. That dress is so nice! And that cardigan :)!.

  2. I prefer the blue dress! you'll stand out more :) xxx

  3. Love your scarf and your makeup is just beautiful :) I think the blue is really unique too! Love it :)


  4. love the first black sparkly dress! You'd look amazing in that! i also really love that blush on your skintone. Beautiful!

  5. Ahh thanks alexis, i dont normally wear pink blush, i usually go for peachy colours. Really lovin this at the moment though :-)
