Disco Pants

Top | Topshop (Similar
Jumpsuit | Asos 

My first blogpost of 2015 is a sparkly one - not for the faint hearted, these two new pieces are every magpie's dream. And in true magpie form the first thing I spotted when I was last in Topshop was this rose gold reversible sequin work of art! It was £65 which I think is pretty expensive for a top but I just couldn't let this one go, and I'm glad I didn't as it's so comfortable to wear & surprisingly matches a lot of pieces I already own. An amazing statement piece that has injected a bit of colour & interest into my otherwise dull & mainly black wardrobe. 
The Asos jumpsuit had been on my wishlist for the past month & when it was reduced from £75 to £45 it felt like fate! I planned to wear it on New Year's Eve but ended up at home in my onesie doubt it will make its debut on my next night out.

Incoming | Winter Pastels & Metallics

Images from Asos

Being stuck inside during the colder months can be dangerous for your bank account. I have filled up way too many online baskets full of clothes I will probably never buy...but when a few gems catch my eye I can't let them slip away.

Wish-List | Urban Outfitters Edit

Urban Outfitters very rarely get it wrong in my eyes, it's my favourite place to shop & always dominates any wish-lists I make in my head after a long session of online window shopping. These are my top picks from their website right now, although I could have picked a lot more I don't want to completely depress myself with unrealistic dreams...They have ticked all the right boxes in transitional pieces for A/W from these chunky Vagabond beauties to the most incredible trench coat I've seen so far. Ah I need it ALL.

New Bits | Nars, Benefit, The Body Shop, Primark

Benefit Watts Up!
Nars Tinted Moisturiser in Alaska 
The Body Shop Vitamin E Mini Set
Primark Underwear Set  

I can't wait to try Benefit's Watts Up properly, after finally finishing my High Beam after what feels like forever I am ready to try out something new. I've also been wanting to switch from foundation to tinted moisturiser for a while now because I hate feeling caked in make-up during the day. I'm a sucker for anything by Nars to be honest, so when picking a brand for tinted moisturiser I had to give this one a go.  I've been giving my skin a bit of TLC recently and I grabbed this mini set of The Body Shop's Vitamin E range for £10 which is pretty good. So far I'm loving it so I might have to buy the full sizes. Undies set - pretty self explanatory because who wants to wear old knickers? I think these are amazing quality for Primark,  really similar to the Rosie for Autograph M&S range but for half the price.
