First Edition: Mim's 5 favourite things.

Lets try something new shall we......


Ok, lets get into jewellery first, I love jewellery, I blog jewellery too so it makes total sense to start off with jewellery. During the last couple of days I have loved re-wearing my Martine Wester Heritage Hare ring bought last year sometime before Christmas. I have worn it literally everytime I go out, which has been a very rare occasion these last couple of weeks for me :'( The eyes are made out of two citrine Swarovski crystals I believe. Love love love the detail and antique feel.

Other jewellery/accessories that have been my favourites again aswell lately:


This bad boy has lately sneaked back to being my everyday tool. Seriously, I couldn't rave about this product enough, put it this way, if you haven't bought one yet, go buy it, your missing out. It retails at £14.00, so it may possibly come across a bit costly to some but I have to say the payoff is absolutely brilliant, a little goes a long way plus you get about 12ml of the product too. Steal! The Clarins instant light natural lip perfector is an amazing product and stays true to its promise as it does nourish, repair and protect lips. I live with the dry lips saga day-in-day-out and this has simply been my SOS lipgloss/balm/whatever. I have the shade 02 Apricot.

And my love affair with Soap & Glory continues......

Aside from the Clarins bad boy, my favourite lip combo these last couple of days/weeks/months without fail has been the SleekMakeup pout polish in #946 Electro Peach or Cherish l/s (satin) by MAC topped with NYX's Goddess of the Night with mega shine lipgloss in #113 French Kiss. I love NYX's jumbo eye pencils, diamond sparkle l/s and mega shine lipglosses :)


My boots! The current loves of my shoe life and without doubt these are my favourite things to wear at the moment. I wore them to Uni today possibly for the first time ever and apart from the irritating fact that they make a hell of alot of noise (hopefully this is short term!) they are delicious to wear. They are comfortable, look good, feel good and didn't cost much too.



I have enjoyed reading mahoosive, big, chunky, threatening textbooks for my final year exams. Sad but true. I want to keep them all!

Finally, I have found accomplishment in condensing my ancient shopping list which had been building since early 2009 to just five items, well technically speaking I can actually now safely say that I have bought everything there was to buy from my ancient shopping list as those five additional items are related to my holiday to Turkey in July this Summer (2011) and are a necessity which will be bought soonish anyways. Here is a shot of the last haul of some of the makeup stuff that I bought (both purchases and repurchases) since February this year, enjoy!
