I guess this is a bit like a Friday Favourites but because I’ve given it a different name I’ve somehow managed to trick myself into thinking it’s totally 102% different and so yey motivation to put it together. So that’s nice.

It’s also all material objects rather than moments that’ll be lodged in my soul and heart forevermore or cute brunch spots (which, let’s just all be honest with ourselves, is 92% what my Friday Faves are made of anyway, so…).

Anyway, HAPPY BLADDY FRIDAY.

How nice is it that we’ve blinked and oh hello weekend, you’re here again. Nice to see ya. Shall we go get a wine and have a lie-in and eat pizza? You betcha.

So here’s a handful of my current new fave fashion and beauty baes. Oh, and most of them are like pocket-money cheap. OK, maybe not most of them, but some of them are and what’s more fun than things that don’t leave you with spending anxiety for 48 hours?

 

1. LAMODA SANDALS, £27.99

It’s about 10 degrees to cold for these hubba hubba hunnies and mate, you do NOT wanna see the state of my toes right now. The crispiest, patchiest pedicure of all time. Probs tbh because I did it around Christmas. *insert 675467534 dark moon emojis*

I had a pair super similar to this last summer without a heel and wore them with EVERYTHING until they quite literally fell into pieces. I though this cute heeled pair (A GOLD BLOCK HEEL OMFG THE DREAM) would be perfect for summer holiday evenings. Sassy but y’know, doesn’t threaten you with weeping blisters or a broken ankle.

(You can currently get 20% off on LAMODA with code BALLIN20.

 

2. MONOGRAMMED SCARF, £30

I’ve raised my scarf name (who knew that was even a thing?) with this *could be* Burberry scarf.

I mentioned it in a post last week, but I’ve been wearing it almost daily since so I thought it was worth another lil shout out. My current scarf collection comprises of about 5 scarves that *could* be blankets, so it’s nice to have something a bit sleeker. I feel like people will probs confuse me with Alexa Chung in the street now tbf.

 

3. MAYBELLINE BROW DRAMA, £4.99

I picked this up on a whim last week because turns out my brows ain’t so happy with staying where I put them throughout the day – the utter weasels. This megz affordable brow gel does come in several shades, but I like to use a pencil and then blend it with a slanted brush and finish off with a slick of this clear gel to hold them in place.

It’s a babe for doing that thing at the start of the brows where you make them look fluffed up and natural, y’know?

4. LAMODA COIN PURSE, £4.99

Not sure if I’ve mentioned it on here for an age or two, but when I go abroad I like to keep my dollar (or my euro) in a separate coin purse to my every day normal life one. That way you’re not dragging your Nando’s card and Topshop card and citizenship card (anyone else ever have one of those huns? I had my collar up in mine and had half a can of hairspray in my perfect slicked back ponytail) around a remote Greek holiday destination.

I’ve gone with this pink leopard number to hold my dollars for New York because y’know it shouts I LIKE INSTAGRAM AND MAC LIPSTICKS AND TAYLOR SWIFT.

 

5. BAREMINERALS EYE SHADOW PALETTE, £29

This little sweetheart is part of bareMinerals’s Lovescape Spring 2016 collection and it’s the first eye shadow palette I’ve had in FOREVER where I’ve literally used every shade. In fact, it’s the only shadow product I’ve used in the past fortnight.

The peachy shade is perfect for no-eyeshadow eyeshadow, the gold is the dream holiday shade, the brown shimmer makes an easy smokey-eye and the pink shimmer is ridiculously on-trend right now and I’m wearing it as I type this. Who the fuck am I, discussing eye shadow trends. Get me back to cheeseburger chasers and Step Up please.

 

6. MINT REEBOK TRAINERS, £59.99

I’m on a bit of a trainer bender – my ankle boots and cute flats haven’t even had a look in of late because omg it’s so nice to go about my daily life feeling like my feet are wrapped in giant king-size duvets.

I’m obsessed with the basic blogger bitch all-over mint shade of these handsome hunnies AND they come in pale blue and violet too. Sweet hunky mumma.

 

7. SEVENTEEN SKIN WOW! CONCEALER, £4.99

This dreamboat only launched a few weeks ago and is the perfect low-cost dupe for YSL’s Touche Eclat. Like legit, I can’t even tell the difference between the two.

I’ve been using it under my eyes (because they’re always purple?!?! Someone pass a girl a giant bottle of water) and it feels like my skin just drinks it in meaning that blending is super easy.

 

8. LAMODA SUNGLASSES, £9.99

I’m a proud sunglasses whore. I seem to get at least a new pair a month mostly because I lose/break every pair that comes into my life. My clumsiness knows no bounds. Although Chris and I have both lost our RayBans and so what seems the obvious reason is that someone broke into our house and stole them but left the electricals. Right, right?

These sassy sisters also come in a dark grey shade, but I love the pink because pink, pink, pink for lyf <3
