What’s in Annie’s handbag?

A: I love these posts (mainly because I’m incredibly nosey) so I thought I would let you all have a nose in my handbag too!

Admittedly, I’m am probably the most unorganised person in the world.

Literally nothing in my life is tidy, there’s always pens and random receipts in my handbag and I never keep my make up in make up case, it all just rattles around together! I don’t carry all my make up with me, but I always have my Bare Minerals mineral veil and flawless face brush, these are perfect if you need to get rid of some of the sneaky shine that appears from nowhere! I also have the sample size of my Porefessional with me because it’s perfect for touch ups. I’ve got my Model Co lipstick with me today, this is a staple in my bag, but if I’m wearing a different lipstick I’ll carry that too. I always have a blusher too – one with a mirror!! This Elf one is perfect. My tangle teezer is a must for my unruly mop and this Molton Brown Rose and Rhubarb hand lotion is my new favourite thing (it was in my Birchbox this month and it smells amazing!!!) Other than my trust purse, keys and kindle combo that’s my handbag summed up!

March Beauty and Fashion Wish Lists!

A & C: We can’t believe how quickly February has flown by… but happy March everyone! Although we are hoping for some lovely Spring weather, we aren’t getting our hopes up too much so we have compiled our March wish lists to cheer us up instead!

Chloe’s Wishlist:

1. Boohoo Jenny Clip Buckle Block Heel Ankle Boot £30 – name is a bit of a mouthful, but these are just what I am looking for. If you have seen any of our recent OOTD posts then Annie has some similar to these and they instantly make any outfit look more dressed up.

2. Mac Lipstick in Rebel £15 – not an amazing picture of this, it is actually more purpley? Apparently this shade suits anyone that dares to wear it… so I am looking forward to finding out if thats true! I also have a lot of Mac make-up but no lipsticks, a problem that needs rectifying ASAP.

3. Urban Decay Palette £37 – finally available at http://www.feelunique.com. I haven’t got any of these blogger favourited palettes yet so thought I had better start my collection with the first!

4. River Island Black Tartan Contrast Collar Skater Dress £25 – an online exclusive that needs adding to my tartan collection! Would look amazing with black tights and the boohoo boots!

Annie’s Wishlist:

1. Asos Leather Doctors Bag, currently on sale for £60! The perfect sized bag for work and shopping!

2. River Island Navy Chelsea girl Daisy Polka Dot Midi Dress £25 – I am super excited for Spring, and I think this amazing print dress would be perfect to see me into (hopefully) hot Summer days.

3. Nails Inc Leather Effect Nail Varnish £12 – I love trying new nail effects and polishes and black is one of my favourite nail colours as it goes with everything!

4. Black shoes from House of Fraiser £69 – every girl needs a pair of classic black flats in their life and these are a sophisticated version that are a bit different.

What do you think of our March wish lists? Is there anything in particular that you are lusting after this month? #twolittleowlsblog

Valentines OOTD

A: okay just a quick one tonight guys, I’m wearing my favourite Vila leather jacket, my Vero Moda lace dress with a black slip underneath and Topshop heels matched with a vintage handbag! Sorry for the rubbish photo but my boyfriend isn’t as pro as taking pictures as Chloe, and she’s at work (not looking as good as me). #twolittleowls

Lincoln does vintage

A & C: We went to the Lincoln does vintage fair at the Drill Hall yesterday so we thought we would share with you the beautiful things we picked up! The fair was really good, it was just a shame the venue was a bit small and cramped for all the vintage goodies they had!

First buy of the day was this cute Cherry B glass that Annie got for her mums collection.

Next I picked up this amazing bag for only £5! I love vintage handbags and I’m always buying new ones so this will fit nicely in my collection! It’s also a bit smaller than my others and the straps removable so would make a perfect clutch.

I then picked up this amazing white blouse for only £5! It’s a lovely material and such a classic, it will never go out of fashion. Perfect for dressing up or for a smart casual day time look.

I then picked up this beautiful beaded top for £15 which is such a bargain considering the detail on it. I wore it out last night with my vintage leather jacket featured in our OOTD post yesterday!

Annie then picked up this dress for £14 which is a lovely ditsy pattern with a lace peterpan collar which is really on trend. Annie has been looking for a dress in this sort of fabric for ages so she was really pleased!

20140209-135824.jpg

Last but not least I got this denim dress for £7, I have always wanted a denim dress but usually don’t like how they fit me (too tall!) so I was super pleased to find this!

Have you guys been to any vintage fairs recently? Let us know, or if you have any tips on lovely places/fairs to visit #twolittleowlsblog

For the love of tartan.

Image

C: I know its currently fashionable and “on-trend” to wear tartan; but I have to admit that I’ve always loved it. Cool or not, tartan is the perfect winter statement, which looks beautiful in vintage, old-country style homes (which being country girls, means this is what we absolutely love and are used too!) This picture shows some of mine and Annie’s favourite tartan items, from vintage style cushions to dresses and handbags. So just for you lucky readers, we have scoured the internet for our favourite tartan items to share with you.

So firstly, the tartan handbag from the picture (the current love of my life) is now on sale here reduced from £59.00 to £29.50, and the scarf underneath the other items is from accessorize for only £19! We then picked our tartan wishlist, where we are both in love with these Topshop trousers, which are perfect for Winter days, paired with boots, a cosy jumper and scarf! We then picked: midi dress, a shift dress, a vintage skirt and a playsuit!

For a country-style, vintage theme around the house Annie has collected the cushions shown in the picture since moving house a year ago. So keep your eye out when shopping and see what bargains you can also pick up!
