what i've been wearing and trying of late

I've been a bad blogger of late......apologies! I've been really lacking motivation and often have days when I find it hard to cobble an outfit together. However, last weekend I had a huge trying on session at hi*hi store in Oxted (they are currently celebrating being open for 10 years!). I think has single-handedly rejuvenated my passion for actual shopping......as opposed to purchasing online.  It also inspired me to go back to my pin boards when I 'm having those *I don't know what to wear conundrums*. So today's post is a kinda of two pronged attack. First I'll show you my shop my wardrobe inspiration, then I'll shall my trying on session at hi*hi. It gave me a lot of food for thought about how I wear some of my pieces.
First up though, this pic sorted out my Monday morning wobbly. You can find my *Shop my wardrobe* Pinterest board here.

making up!

Or what's in my make-up box. I'm pretty kinda of basic when it comes to make-up. I wear make-up everyday and wouldn't be seen without it (I'd scare small children!) but I've been doing the same old thing for years and I knew it was time to do a bit of an update. Cue an afternoon well spent in the company of a bonafide make-up artist Chanelle. I took along my own meagre collection of products so that I could pick Chanelle's brains about new products and how to use what I already have to the best effect.
