Chloe’s Top Picks: Spring Nail Polishes

C: apparently it is Spring now… although looking outside I beg to differ. But with the change of season we often feel the need to update our beauty closet as well as our fashion choices – something which can be pretty expensive to do if on a limited budget! However, one of the easiest and cheapest way to update a beauty routine ready for Spring is with some bargain nail polishes. So I have picked my favourite Spring polishes that are super good value for your pennies!

George by Asda Polish in Cool Lilac and Fuzzy Peach – lilac and a pastel peach are the must have colours this Spring and these beauties from George are only 2 for £3! Perfect for sneaking into the food shopping trolley – no one will notice I’m sure! I reviewed these here and they really are incredible value for money and such beautiful colours.

Models Own nail polish in Duck – I love these speckled egg nail polishes! They really are perfect for Spring as the range is based on different eggs! These beauties are just £4.99 and available here.

Models Own Hyper Gel Polish in Turquoise Gloss – another bargain at £4.99 (available here) these super shiny gel effect nail polishes are easy to use and provide such a professional looking finish. I love this Turquoise/Mint Green colour, perfect for festival inspired manis!

Topshop Nail Polish in Solar – sadly this beauty is no longer available but there is a similar shade called Alchemy here for £6. I love gold nails all year round to be quite honest, but once again this is perfect for festival inspired nails and is the perfect investment if you can wear it any season!

Chloe’s Spring Wishlist!

C: It is super sunny outside at the moment, and although it isnt exactly warm yet it is making me very excited for the coming Summer! So I thought, what better way to celebrate then by putting together a Spring Wishlist, in the hope that some lovely person decides to treat me to all these beautiful things (wishful thinking eh?)!

1. Asos Maternity Skater Dress in Check £28 – okay so most of you are not interested in maternity clothes, but I think we can all appreciate this as a great dress in its own right. I love checked prints, so this would be perfect for the Spring weather, as it would also look great with tights when its a bit chillier! 

 2. Clinique Long Last Matte Lipstick £18 – recently Clinique have really upped their make up game and refreshed their lipstick line. I love their skincare so much, but have never been that interested in their make up until seeing these badboys. I think the Matte Petal shade (a super soft, girly pink) would be my first choice for Spring. 

 3. Topshop Semi Previous Teardrop Necklace £10 – layering up jewellery is super on trend at the moment, so this necklace is the perfect place to start if you are unsure! I love the green colour, as it would make the perfect contrast to so many outfits. 

 4. New Look Tan Leather Woven Sandals £24.99 – my favourite sandals finally died of old age so I had to throw them away at the end of last Summer (booooo) so I have been on the search for the perfect pair. I love the woven effect of these, brown goes with everything AND they slip on, so I dont have to panic that I won’t be able to do my own shoes up soon once super pregnant! Perfect!

So there is what I am currently lusting after, what about you guys? What do you think of my choices? #twolittleowls

Chloe’s Summer Wishlist

C: it has been such beautiful weather the past few days that I have been dreaming of my new summer wardrobe/make up. I love it when the seasons change and you have the perfect excuse for a little retail therapy, so here’s what I have been lusting after.

Topshop Leaf Print Sundress £38. I absolutely adore the print on this, and it is the perfect comfy dress to throw on when its hot weather. I might have to invest.

Maxfactor 3 in 1 foundation. I have heard great things about this and I really want to try it. This is perfect for festivals etc when you want good coverage/a primer but don’t want to waste time applying make up. 3 steps in 1? I am sold.

Topshop Giggle Geek Shoes £30. I love these/I am a geek so even the name fits me perfectly. I think these would be the perfect summer work shoes as they are still smart and not opened toed. I would have ordered them already, but I have to try shoes on as I am awkward/between sizes.

Revlon Lip Butters. Once again I have heard amazing things about these and to be honest it doesn’t take a lot of persuasion to get me to buy new lipsticks. I can’t decide on a colour yet so if you have recommendations please do let me know, but these sound perfect for low maintenance summer lips!

Annie’s Summer Wishlist

A: So Summer has arrived and hopefully the Sun is going to stay for a while. I thought I’d put together a wish list of all the things I’m lusting after at the moment because I haven’t done one in a while.

genie_lip_paint_large_2_1

Firstly, this Genie Lipstick from Barry M. I spotted this on The Oxford Owl’s blog and have been looking out for it ever since, she posts some really good product reviews – click here and check them out! Don’t worry – this isn’t green lipstick. Well, it is BUT is magically changes colour when it’s applied – to you ‘perfect personal shade of pink’. The formula adapts to the Alkali in your lips, to give you your own individual shade of lipstick. Clever hey?! It’s meant to be really long lasting too, so I’m looking forward to giving this a go! I’ve found it for £4.49 on the Barry M website here.

Next, I’m after a highlighter. I really want to try out the ‘dewey’ look and I think one of the best ways to achive it is with a cream highlighter. I know I’m pretty late to the game with this one, but as far as I can see, Benefit’s High Beam is going to be the best. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!!

I’ve been looking for a midi-length skirt for a while now, and I think this navy spotted one by The Whitepepper at Topshop is perfect. I love the button through front panel and the way that it sits – high and on the waist. It’ll be perfect for those days that I want to cover up but still be summery. It’s £48 and can be found here.

Lastly, I am 100% going to be buying an ice-lolly mould this summer. I love making ice-lollies at home because you can make them exactly the way you want, and this Lollyring mould from Lakeland is adorable! You can make 6 rings in 3 different designs, and I know my nephews and niece will love making them. The set is £4.99 and you can buy it here.

Chloe’s Summer/Cat OOTD

C: It is lovely and summery here today in Annie’s beautiful garden, and we both finished work early so we thought we would do an OOTD for you! Bill didn’t want to miss out so we thought we had better include him – cutest cat ever.

I teamed this floral skirt with quite a plain top (lace counts as plain, right?) and sandals. This skirt is really versatile as it can be both dressed up and worn casually. I also really like the length for summer as you don’t have to wear tights in the warm months.

Bill was really impressed with my outfit, he agreed that it was perfect for Summer. He loved it so much he kissed me.

Top – Topshop, Skirt – Primark, Sunglasses – Primark, Sandals – Warehouse.

Hope you enjoyed my OOTD, what style are you going for this Summer? #twolittleowlsblog

Chloe’s May beauty and fashion wish list

C: Firstly I would like to apologise for the lack of post yesterday, I know we usually post every day but I have not been able too whilst Annie has been away – but she is back on Friday! Yay! So lets crack on with it… my May (yes, May!) wish list!

photo-10

Vans Chauffette shoes in pale blue (available here) for £45. I love Vans, and they are the only trainer type shoes I ever wear. I think these will be the perfect pair for Summer! I could’t find a good picture of them but these are pale blue with white polka dots!

Topshop Cream Blushes are only £7 and I have never used a cream blush before so I think these bargains will be the perfect place to start! I haven’t decided on a colour yet, so if anyone has any recommendations please do let me know!

This crop top is from New Look and is only £14.99. If you regularly read our blog you will know I love anything tartan/checked so this is right up my street! Would look amazing with my denim, high waisted shorts if it ever gets warm!

Last but certainly not least is this Mac lipstick (Creme Cup) £15. Annie got a Mac lipstick for her birthday and I was super duper jealous. I also have a tendency to buy bright, fun lipsticks and never any that are suitable for every day wear, so after reading several reviews I have picked this one as my next purchase!

Annie’s Holiday Wish List: Part 1

A: So as i’m sure you’ve noticed (because I’m SO excited!) I am off on holiday soon, and I’ve been trawling the internet to find some holiday goodies. There’s so many new things that I obviously need to buy that I thought I’d do them in two parts; my clothes and accessories wish list today, and my beauty wish list in Part 2.

Image

Top of the list is this amazing swimsuit. I’ve already got a couple of bikinis ready to pack but I though I had better find something for those days where I’ve eaten too much and need to hide the belly. I love this Ferdinand Monokini, it covers all the right places and I’m not particularly blessed in the boob department so the fringing on this will be perfect for me. I found this on Asos for £52.00.

I love a good hat and I’m so pale and pasty that I burn really easily so this Accessorize sun hat is a must have for me – £25.00.

Holiday footwear is always a bit of a problem for me. I am super picky because I HATE toeposts and my massive cankles mean I have to be really careful with ankle straps. Once I’ve found a pair I love, I pretty much wear them to death and I spotted these in Topshop the other day  – I think I’m onto a winner with them. They are made from really soft leather and will be perfect for the evenings with either a maxi dress or a shorter dress. A bargain too, they are only £30.00.

I’m loving the whole 90’s vibe that’s going on at the minute, including the jelly shoes! It is a little scary though, cosidering I’m only 24 and the things I used to wear are coming back round again! I love this 90’s twin set from Ark. It looks great together or it can be worn as separates – it’s so versatile! £19.99.
