Ed's Diner

Today's lunch with my sister at the newly opened Ed's Diner on Oxford Street (behind Boots).

Oreo Milkshake.
Chilli Fries, Normal Fries.

Chicken Caesar.

Chicken Dippers.

This was our first time at Ed's and it was a pleasant one, food was good and service was lovely. 
I really love the Diner experience of it (although they should totally have their waiters/waitresses on rollerskates! :P), we need more in London!

Rawr! #2




I think Mother Nature forgot about Summer this year...
The weather here in good ol' London is a little nippier and the tree branches are dancing a little too aggressively.
It's nearly time to bring out the Autumn-wear! 
One addition to my accessories drawer is this beautiful leopard print scarf from H&M, it is the perfect circle scarf. It's the right length to wrap around your neck twice, and it's just the right size to puff out slightly.
No doubt I wear it to death this Autumn/Winter.

The Briefcase Bag.





We can never have too many bags, right? (LOL I ordered another one the other day XD)
This bag caught my eye instantly, I have a soft spot for floral prints. It has a sort of vintage feel which I love too.

From Primark, at £8 you can't go wrong :)

Canmake Cream Cheek 12


Jenn was lovely enough to grab me the newest Canmake Cream Cheek shade that was released a couple of months ago as part of their summer collection. I think this shade is also limited edition.

#12 Milky Orange.



I find it's a more milky powder peach colour rather than an milky orange, nonetheless it's a really cute shade to add a blush of colour to the cheeks. It looks as a matte pastel colour in the swatch but it contains very fine silver shimmer.

Canmake's Cream Cheeks are lovely and creamy and are very easy to blend. I'm on the hunt for swatches of the other shades to add more to my wishlist :)

£1 Finds!

I was browsing my local Poundland today and look what I came across...

Rimmel  Eyeshadow in Stir It Up & U Rock!

At first I was like 'Rimmel?!', I had never seen these in Superdrug or Boots. Do you have it in USA? It's says it's for US distribution on the back, and I also spotted some CVS stuff too.

Anyway I picked these out as a whim as I was curious at how Stir It Up turn out as it looked so funky, and U Rock looked like a potential blush shade.

Stir It Up. (Powder Eyeshadow).

U Rock! (Cream eyeshadow).


They are really soft/creamy, pigmented and amazing for £1! Pretty aren't they? 

I found that not all Poundlands carry the same stock, so it is worth checking out the beauty section and really dig in to find those little gems.

Glossybox: August

Just a quick post to show you what I received in my Glossybox this month.



The August box is sadly my last. I would totally recommend Glossybox, it's just that personally I won't use the products as much. I have a box full of samples, and many others boxes of products to go through so these would just add to the collection and I would never get through them all. :P I have this thing for collecting...

Before I end this post, check out the design of the Rebel Nails I got:

Crazy huh? Reminds me of Ed Hardy! And these are for the toes...hmm should be interesting to play with. 

Have a great weekend!

Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee

Flash.

I'm on a bit of a highlighter craze at the moment! This is the latest product to add to my collection, Estee Lauder's Illuminating Powder Gelee in Modern Mercury.

"High polish for your skin. Innovative tri-blend liquid, powder, gel formula goes beyond face powder to give you a sexy, sophisticated glow"

I really like the pebbled, pearl texture of the powder and the wave effect (if you can see). I think this is one of the highlighters I own which leans towards the warmer side. It's a lovely shade to use for an eye look too as Jamilla. :)

I don't know if it's just me, but there is a scent. I can't put my finger on what it smells like, but it gets a bit weird after a while :P Anyway, isn't it pretty? :)

Natural Light.
Swatched.
Blended.

This powder is limited edition and is sold for £28.

US Swap with Tiffyama :)

A couple of weeks back I receive a jam-packed package from Tiffany. This my first swap with a fellow blogger and it was so fun to put her package together as well as trying out the items she sent me.

Rawr!

 Because I can't think of a better title XD
A few weeks ago, I order a new maxi dress from the H&M sale. For about £3, you can't go wrong really.



As you can see, it is long! Being a petite 5ft1, I find it hard to find the perfect maxi dress in terms of length. The only place I find that does suitable lengths are from wholesales stores.
However, I was able to easily alter the length. Trimming a bit off and re-hemming it, it now falls below my ankles :)

Hope all my UK readers are okay, and stay safe!
