A Lawless Fight

This weekend gone, my wonderful man and I decided to have a date day. We made our way to Newport for a day of delicious food, amazing charity shops and record store splurges!

Dress - ASOS Curve, Kimono - ASOS Curve, Tights - Evans, Shoes - River Island, Bag - Primark, Sunglasses and Scrunchie - Urban Outfitters.

Now I won't bore you all by reviewing these items again as they've all featured in previous posts but they are two of my favourite clothing items ever! The dress is so comfortable, it can be dressy or casual and I adore how it fits my figure! The kimono is such a fun alternative to a cardigan and adds a quirky twist to any outfit! 

This lipstick is my new favourite. It was £3.99 from H&M and it's Timeless Plum from their Matte Collection. It goes on so smoothly, has a gorgeous matte finish, lasts really well (even when eating and drinking) and it smells like berries! The range has a variety of colours available but this was my choice and I am very glad I opted for this. I cannot get enough of dark lip colour at the moment! 

I'm not sure if it's the fact I stopped using Illamasqua Skin Base (it did nothing for my skin but make it spotty and greasy) or the new skin products I've been using but my skin has been 80% less oily recently than it used to be, which makes me incredibly happy! I went into Boots in a rush and picked up a skin product that claimed to help oily skin prone to breakouts. When I got home, I had a proper look at it and realised it was a skin product for men! 

I initially bought the scrub (by accident) but after a week or so of using it, I was so impressed I went back and bought the gel face wash! I now use the scrub and wash on alternate days and my skin really has never been better - thank you Garnier for men!

As well as my skin, I have seen a huge improvement in my nails since I decided to give them a break from nail varnish.  They had gotten quite stained from intensive nail varnish wearing - so I wore stick on false nails for a few weeks to allow them to grow a little, filed and buffed them and have just used a Nail Nurse topcoat from Rimmel to protect them - I had been neglecting them for far too long!

It was so nice to spend a day with my man, doing fun things and eating delicious treats. Look how handsome he is and here is the incredible food we ate at The Secret Garden Cafe in Newport;

Gammon and egg and then a shared plate of hot Belgian waffles for dessert! 

I also made a gorgeous new friend! His name is Gizmo and he is a 2 year old Shih Tzu who had just had a haircut! He sat on my lap and gave me little smooches and climbed on my boobs a lot. I didn't want to give him back! He was so adorable!

But I have to say, I think the highlight of my day was bagging this incredible limited edition vinyl! It's the soundtrack to the movie Lawless (an incredible film I cannot recommend enough, adapted for screen by my 2nd favourite man on the planet - Nick Cave) and it sounds even better on vinyl than I could have hoped! There is something about a fiddle that is made even more glorious by the slightly scratchy, dusty quality you can't get other than on a record! 

Well, this was a post including a little bit of everything but it was a very lovely day!
