Skirt - Primark (originally)  Blazer - Primark  Stripey Top - H&M  Blouse - Warehouse  Nails - Essie Mint Candy Apple  Rings - H&M

Oh dear god, how tango-ed do my arms look in these pictures?! Please excuse my inadequate tanning, the unpredictable English weather has meant my legs are generally wrapped up in thick tights to avoid the frequent downpours so leg tanning has not been my top priority at the moment!

This pleated leather skirt has become something of a 'blogger's uniform' in recent months, with everyone and their mother seeming to own one, and I have been kicking myself ever since it was out of the shops that I didn't pick one up! Luckily enough I spotted the little beauty on Morven's blog shop here, and snapped it up!

And I'm obsessed! Along with Essie Mint Candy Apple gracing my finger tips I'm feeling very blogger-ish today, and loving it!

Have a fantastic weekend!

No 7 Tinted Moisturiser, Collection 2000 Concealer, No 7 Blush in Coral Flush, Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer, Jemma Kidd All Over Radiance Creme in Iced Gold, ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Elegant, MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 19 (eyebrows), MAC Coffee Eyeliner, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, L'oreal Telescopic Mascara in Waterproof, Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, MAC Hue Lipstick

Phew, that is a hell of a lot of makeup that I slap on my face on a daily basis! But I am completely loving this combo lately, pink lips and cheeks are my new thing; pink is totally the new coral in Hannah-Land!

Also my new discovery this month has been waterproof mascara! After seeing Vivianna raving constantly about L'oreal Telescopic, I was urged to buy and see what all the fuss was about. And it truly is amazing! No mascara has ever held curl quite like this waterproof version does and my only lash problem at the moment is that they poke the top of my eyelids because it makes my lashes so long and curly! I am a complete waterproof convert, although I kick myself in the evenings when I am pulling and tugging on my delicate lashes, desperately trying to get the stubborn flakes off. Please someone recommend me a miracle eye makeup remover?!

summer lipstick favourites!

Revlon Lip Butters in Candy Apple and Tutti Frutti
With all the hype surrounding these babies, who was I to ignore and of course I jumped straight on the bandwagon at first chance, and I'm not sorry! These are gorgeous; not amazingly moisturising but beautifully pigmented, and I dare say the red is fast becoming my favourite bright in my whole collection.

Sleek True Colour Lipsticks in Barely There and Peaches & Cream
These are the best lipsticks to come out of high street brands for a long time! Pigmented, creamy, soft and easy to apply with a fantastic shade range, what more do you want!?

NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Smokey Look
The most gorgeous nude, peach lip gloss, non-sticky and smells like summer!

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 02 Apricot Shimmer 
This has to be my favourite lip gloss of all time. Its sheerness, and soft glossy look makes it the most perfect product for natural daytime looks.

MAC Lipsticks in Shy Girl and Hue
Hue is so loved that this is actually my second tube of it, and Shy Girl is a new discovery - when I'm pale this is a massive no-no but with a tan this is perfect! Although I wish it didn't have the small particles of glitter- sort it out MAC!

Ok, so the Coldplay concert at the Emirates stadium was AMAZING! Flashing wristbands, bouncing, blow up balls and confetti fountains were just the peak of Chris Martin's little box of surprises up his sleeve! Simon Pegg seemingly popped up from nowhere in the middle of the concert playing the harmonica, and even after being subjected to listening to the crazy warbling of Robyn as a support act the whole crowd were buzzing for Chris and the Crew.

The whole things was magic, and completely surreal when the light up wristbands were flashing in time with Paradise, Charlie Brown and lighting up the London skies. Please, I beg of you, if you like Coldplay even a smidgen, go see them live! It was literally the most amazing experience of my life and I am sooooo glad I scrambled for tickets last minute!

Lights will guide you home 
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

its a ring thing!

I always feel a little bit naked if i'm not wearing a ring on each hand. These are a few of my absolute favourite pieces which I lug around on each hand most days, even if a few are just too big to write with!

I especially love the ones I salvaged from little Spanish shops on my holidays as they are so much more unique and interesting than most English shop's offerings! I am constantly on the hunt for original ring designs of all shapes and sizes; rings are by far my absolute favourite jewellery item, they jazz up any outfit with next to no effort at all!

I'm quite interested in getting a few more hand baubles from places like etsy and ebay however they are so hard to find! Any favourite etsy or blog shops you can recommend for rings, anyone? 

Have a lovely weekend!

After an extended absence due to the extreme pressure of exams I'm finally back blogging and am most importantly freeeeeee! If you have exams at the moment, good luck!

Now I have my freedom back (that sounds like a was a house elf!) I have been enjoying the beautiful English sunshine over the last few days and also had a little trip down to London's O2 arena to watch the X Factor auditions! It was so beautiful outside I actually got to crack out my new turquoise shorts which I am obsessed with and cannot get enough of! 

I am also very overexcited to be going to see Coldplay on Monday night, which I am hopeing will be amazingggg, and that next week is going to be a very good week indeed, lets hope the sun rears it's elusive head once more!

Have a fabulous Jubilee Weekend!
