MeMeMe Cosmetics Ultimate Eye Palette Rich Plum review*

With the party season well and truly upon us, I'm sure I am not alone in thinking about make up for nights out. As someone who wears glasses I need make up that can stand out and be seen behind my thick lenses!! When MeMeMe got in touch and asked if I would like to review their Rich Plum Eye Palette I was keen to see what the shades would be like.

It doesn't disappoint with a nice mix of matte and shimmering shades to create a good party make up look.

The palette itself is nicely designed with a double ended brush for applying and blending, and a handy mirror in the lid so you could pop this in your bag and take it with you.

I love the shimmery colours and had a go at blending some which in better light than I managed to take the photo in gave a really smoky eye.

At the moment it is currently on offer for £13.50 and if you spend over £20 delivery is free so get spending!

Even better I have a discount code which gives you 25% off until the end of December just use mememe25 at the checkout!

I am off to my works xmas do on Saturday night and will definitely be using this for my eye make up!

These Boots Were Made for Walking


Sorry for the silent running this week but I have been ill since Sunday with a dreadful bout of flu and I am just beginning to feel human again!.

I have been desperate to share a recent Primark purchase with you but had to put the post on hold until I felt better.

For the last few years I have wanted to get some Chelsea boots but have struggled to find any that I really liked. A few weeks ago I was mooching about in Primark and spotted a lone pair hanging on a rack which were calling to me! When I spotted that they were my size and a bargain £10.00 I knew they had to come home with me!!

So here they are!

Chelsea Boot, Primark, Size 6, Brogue, Tartan

These boots combine my two favourite things, brouge styling and tartan so what is not to love!!! They are super comfy despite the low price and generous in fitting despite not being wide fit.

If you are near a Primark and spot a pair I would definitely grab a pair you will not regret it!

The One Where I Met Tess Munster

So I'm sure by now you all know that the legend that is Tess Munster came to my hometown of Birmingham last week to do a meet and greet at the Yours Clothing store in the Bullring.

Now these type of events are a rare thing in Birmingham so when I heard she was coming I used my last days holiday from work to book a day off as I knew I would really regret not going along.

Not only was I excited to meet Tess I was also looking forward to seeing some lovely blogger babes as well, and having so many amazing people in Brum was awesome!

After meeting up with Becky, Lolly (with Franklin in tow who is as famous as Tess and such a cutie!!) and Katt I queued to meet Tess and was quite calm until I got to the front of the queue and then forgot how to speak!! I have to say she was really lovely in person, very friendly and made everyone feel special and appreciated for coming to meet her. I did have an OMG moment when I said I was a blogger, told her the name of my blog only to be told she had read it eeep!!!!

So here is the moment I met her (please excuse the blurry photos my phone is a pain at times!)

After we had all met her we managed to persuade them to let us do a group blogger shot so here it is!

Lucia, Lolly, Hannah, Becky, Katt, Me, Tess and Katie.

After all the excitement we all decided we needed a sit down and a drink so we headed off to Five Guys (ok I was nearly as excited about this as I was meeting Tess) where I had the most amazing burger but bad blogger that I am forgot to photograph it! Enjoy a picture of my drink instead (coke zero cherry!!).

Having re-fuelled we headed back to Yours to have a mooch around the store and indulge in a trying on session. Somehow we all ended up grabbing the dress that Tess was wearing and headed off to the changing rooms to try it on!!

I may have accidentally bought this dress whoops!!!

Much mayhem ensued photos taken and instagrammed and then someone had the bright idea that as the store was fairly quiet by this point and we all had the same dress on that we should go and see Tess and have a photo!! We wandered through the store much to the amusement of the staff and surprised Tess!!

Here is the result!!

Tess Munster, BBW, plus size bloggers, Birmingham, Yours Clothing, Bullring
Debz, Becky, Katt, Tess, me, Lucia
 I think this was the highlight of the day!!!

Becky, Katt and myself spent the rest of the afternoon wandering round the shops and had a much needed coffee and a natter and I had an amazing day with everyone. (It was the first time I had met Katt and she is awesome!!).

So thank you to Tess Munster for coming to Brum and for being so lovely, thank you to Yours Clothing for hosting the event and finally thank you to all the awesome blogger babes who made it a day I shall never forget!!! I love you all!

Taking Shape Icicle Dress Review*

With the weather turning colder I have been on the lookout for dresses to see me through the chillier months, so when Taking Shape contacted me to see if I would like to review something from their Autumn/Winter range I was excited to see what they had.

After having a look through there was one dress which really caught my eye, the Icicle Dress so here it is.

This dress is a bit of a beaut but in my wisdom I asked for an XL and I really should have gone with a L as this dress is super generous in size! This is easily fixed with the addition of a belt (which makes a change for me as I don't wear many belts with my dresses) to pull it in around my waist. It was the unusual hemline that drew me to this dress as it is almost bubblelike. I also love the colours and best of all the fabric has a crinkle to it- so no ironing yay!! It is a lovely soft jersey and really easy to wear and super comfy!
