And I still can see Blue Velvet through my tears




Todays OOTD is this gorgeous blue velvet dress that has been sent to me by the lovely people at ARK  Before I picked this dress I had always had this idea that wearing a velvet dress would drive me mad and rise up, but I was completely wrong, this dress sits perfectly fine! I love this dress, the peter pan collar makes it super cute and I think adds a retro feel to it. Jewel blue is always a favourite colour of mine, I always find it really suits my pale skin and dark hair and is really on trend at the moment.  I've styled it with tights and boots but it could easily be worn for a night out, especially around the festive season. I think my 60's beehive really makes it look more glamorous!

Million Carat gift set




Is this a beauty post you see, here on a design rookie? Yep it sure is, and I have been intending to start dabbling in it. This post is to share with you this amazing FREE gift from Boots when you spend £15 on L'oreal make up. It seems a lot of the brands are doing this with boots right now. It's great because the gift is worth £28 and includes full size products, you could keep it for yourself or even give it as a christmas gift! I purchased my go to mascara, L'oreal million lashes and a new eyeliner so spent £16. In the set you get a nail varnish, rouge pin up, which I am yet to try but is the perfect festive colour! A Colour Riche lipstick 461 which is a gorgeous red with a slight shimmer, and looks like it is a perfect match to the nail varnish. I already use Colour Riche lipsticks and know they are great lipsticks so I am very pleased to be adding a new addition at such a bargain. The mascara is the Million Carat top coat, a very fine glitter mascara to use over your normal one. You can hardly notice until the light hits your eyelashes and I love it, its not real chunky so it looks really glamourous without looking cheap! The glitter is meant to be like a holographic style, but its more of an iridescent glitter, perfect for the party season or creating those dreamy winter eyes! Lastly you get a few skin care sachet samples and a £2.50 off voucher for the L'oreal true match foundation, which I have to say is a must if you are pale, it is one of my favourites!  
I'm debating if I need to go back to Boots tomorrow and see what the other gift sets that you get free with the other brands are needed in my collection ;)

Pom pom garland DIY

Todays DIY is easy peasy and cost me £5 to make. It'll make a great gift for christmas but also a great decoration for the festive season or like I have done an all round pretty for my room! 

You will need some pom poms, these pom poms are from Hobbycraft and are £4. Amaze colours!
You will also need some wool, and something to thread it, kids plastic sewing needles with large eyes are good, or tape it to a tooth pick or like I did I used a hair grip because I couldn't find my plastic needle!

Thread the pom poms onto the wool, I used nearly the whole pack. Once I'd threaded them all on I pushed them out and decided how close I wanted them to each other and how long I wanted it! Make sure to vary your order of pom poms! And thats it, simple as that! Cheap and quick and super pretty!
