Pyramid Studs have arrived!

DIY Projects commence!
Just thought I'd do a quick post for what I've been waiting for through the post...pyramid studs! Manage to order 200 of these little 10mm studs on ebay [Link} only because I've been wanting to do my own DIY detachable collars or stud my own clothing in this denim jackets, shirt collars...whatever I can grab my hands on xD haha.

Look how decent these look! :3

Right just use one stud on the corner of my sleeveless denim jacket and it looks really good (sorry no pics til I'm done decorating alone the way :D). The size is reasonable good but when I'm low on these I'm definitely going back for me (making it sound like bad xD).

Quick swatches of Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms

Probably was a bad idea relying on my phone quality for taking pictures but I had no choice to be fair. Boots only had three testers out and I think I know which one I'm leaning more towards due to the red tone and understanding what colour compliments my skin tone (dark yellow I would believe is mine).

1: 04 Crystal Red, 2: 01 Crystal Pink and 3: Crystal Coral

Sadly the phone quality lacked the true potential of showing the colours but I'm quite keen on Crystal Red only because I feel the Pink and Coral might not show up on my lips. I've also noticed they have the pigmented balm within the centre of the whole thing which looked nice but until I buy one I'll be able to see how long it'll last on my lips! The lip balm itself was nice and smooth almost reminding me of Revlon's Lip Butter or some jelly consistency...mmm

(✿♥‿♥) BIG SALE RIVER ISLAND 030712 (♥‿♥✿)

I just love it when River Island has a sale on although this time if you're able to get there before 8am to your nearest branch for this extra 50% off extra on top of the sale! Sadly being a lazy person I can't bring myself to wake up that early to go screaming halfway across town just for a massive bargain because that's just embarrassing! ⊙﹏⊙

Starting with the big stuff:
Pink ditsy print lace skater dress (was £35 now £20). I need to buy/come up with two different dresses to wear for my cousins' wedding. TWO...3 three apart. This dress would be perfect to wear early October or late...
White vest top with black bow (was £20 now £10) and blue vest top with lace tie (was £20 £10)
Stripey blue white vest, nice and slouchy and suitable to wear with bandeau (was £10 now £5). Plain white vest for relaxing at home (was £5.99 now £2).

I just love my vest tops ◕‿◕. Next up the smaller stuff (°⌣°):
House of Holland Mesh Super Suspender (was £12 now £4) and Pretty Polly Squiggly (was £10 now £4). Truth be told I wouldn't buy these from River Island due to the price of them originally but £4...who couldn't resist (•‿•).
Rubber rings, nice accessories soon to adorn my fat fingers for the summer (£2 now £1) not bad eh eh.

Been hunting all of my heels around the house and I feel that my summer wedges might just go well with the dress I bought. Although the weddings aren't til October so I guess I'm going for a late summer/autumn feel.

(✿◕‿◕) Lunch + mini haul 260612 (◕‿◕✿)

Went to Sorabol with mum and sis again but this time also with my sister's friend Denise, who like me is into the Korean cuisine as well :D. This time I decided to go with dolsat bibimbap- rice with vegetables and raw egg on top inside a stone bowl to mix around to cook the ingredients together...very very DELICIOUS!!!
I accidently poked the yolk before Denise mentioned taking a picture of my dish...opps ●﹏●. From looking nice and neat...
to this! Messy...yes that's the whole point!! Plus the spicy red sauce they provided...just the cherry on top for me.

Onto the small haul, mum wanted to get hand sanitizers for the car when we're on the go and sis wanted more nail polishes for our collection...if she knows which shade of colours we already own. The 2true brand had an offer going on (3 for £4.99) so took advantage of that, saving us 98p. Been meaning to try out the Cheek 'n' Lip Tint:

L-R: 2true shade No.48 (£1.99), 2true shade No.47 (£1.99) and 2true Cheek 'n' Lip Tint - Rose tinted stain for lips and cheeks (£1.99). All from Superdrug

Read reviews about 2true cheek lip tint being a dupe of Benetint and Posietint. I just hope this one doesn't leave me with bloody fingers.

(✿♥‿♥) Shopping haul 200612 (♥‿♥✿)

(。◕‿◕。)BIG SHOPPING HAUL!!! (。◕‿◕。)

In no specific order of my haul for today

A few days ago Boots post came through and yes it's that time of year...SUMMER POINTS EVENT. Basically gain £7.50 worth of Boots points for every £30 you spend. Being me I don't want to spend over a certain amount each week (or so I try) so complied a list of products I know my sister and I need during the summer.

L-R: Dr Jart + BB cream SPF 15 50ml (£18), Vo5 Heat Protect Styling Spray 200ml (£3.69) (OFFER- 2 for £5), Barry M Magnetic Nail Polish in BLUE (£4.99) and Barry M Nail Polish in 150 Red Glitter (£2.99).

Next up is Topman:

I know I said Topman and I mean it! For months I've been trying to find the perfect denim shirt for myself from the women's section but they seem to have this particular style I just don't find appealing to me. So stumbling upon the SALE in Topman I thought about skimming through the tops and voila saw denim and pulled it out of the rail. It was the PERFECT top I've been looking for (in this case DIY studded collar).

Topman denim shirt (was £30 now £15)

 Last part of the haul for today River Island:

Saw a post by River Island and a review on the latest shoe trend, hidden wedges disguised as high tops! I think this is just so comfy for when I want to wear heels out but at the same time still look casaul + I get to look taller than some people :P -coughs-.
Black Hidden Heel High Tops £40.
Sadly with this rubbish weather we're having I definitely don't want to dirty these babies so soon.

(◕︵◕) Sorry for the late post as well! (◕︵◕)
