Pompom necklace that I NEED

I saw this gorgeous pompom necklace whilst browsing Folksy this evening and have decided I need it;

I think it's beautiful, a real statement piece and a definite conversation starter. Trouble is, I don't have £50 to spend on a necklace at the moment (will I ever?!) so it will have to remain bookmarked for me to look at and sigh at least once daily.

Necklace is made by La La Loop and can be found here.

New Chanel nail polishes; Les Khakis de Chanel

Don't they look lovely?

I want them all.

Lovely eBay bargains

I haven't had much spare cash recently, but it hasn't stopped me buying new clothes; I've just had to look for them in cheaper places! Here are my most recent bargains;
Peacock print scarf, £2

Topshop blouse, 99p
Oasis skirt, 99p

NOTD: Barry M Mushroom

A lovely, well, mushroom-coloured shade. Goes on smoothly and is opaque with just one coat. I feel very grown up with this on my nails, especially as I have spent most of this week with each nail painted a different colour.

A mini Topshop spree...

The worst thing about being a supply teacher is the fact that you don't get paid during the school holidays. This means that I have barely bought anything in the last couple of months, and this is NOT ON. So whilst in Cheltenham this morning, I decided to throw caution to the wind and assume that I'll get at least three days work this week, therefore allowing myself to legitimately treat myself to a few bits and pieces from Topshop;

Sheer black lightning bolt tights - £8
Beige cloud socks, taupe ribbed socks and grey polka dot socks - £7 for three pairs
Tan cobweb knitted snood - £16

Lovely! Now I just need it too be cool enough for me to wear the snood!

PS - what are the red lines on my pictures all about?! I can't get rid of them!

A little bit of a style-crush...

I can't say that I've ever noticed Jessica Alba's clothes before, but when I saw her in this outfit at the Venice Film Festival, I fell in love with her (and it) a little bit...

I love the style of the dress, the long sleeves, the length of the dress, the distressed hem, the bold print, the bangles, the nail polish, the simple hair style... And don't get me started on the shoes! I need them. What's not to love?

Sadly, I could never get away with this style of dress (the neckline is too high for me, my chest would look like a shelf) but I think she looks stunning. Dress is by Dolce & Gabbana.

NOTD: Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream

This is the shade I meant to buy last week when I bought Pure Turquoise. It looks quite pale in the bottle, but on my nails it's pretty much the same as the turquoise shade. When I think of blueberry ice cream, I think of a very pale, powder blue, but Barry M obviously think differently. Take a look...

Nice colour, but the name is a bit misleading. As usual with Barry M, this went on easily and dried quickly.
