Here's a crappy shot of my outfit... red dress was a bargain from New Look (£15!) and cardigan is from H&M (£9.99) - for some reason I look pretty huge in this photo but I promise you all I'm a size 12! Haha!

Next up - something I thought I would never be blogging about. It's Katy Perry's debut perfume, Purr. I picked this up in Debenhams on it's UK launch date, as coincidentally it was a 20% off day and I fancied a new scent. I'm not going to lie - it was the cute bottle that sucked me in! What can I say? I am a huge cat lover :) It cost me around £28 which is a fair price in my opinion. It's a lovely, fruity scent but it is also very light - meaning it doesn't linger on you all day long. I have been wearing it most week days, and I would recommend this for a cheap day scent. It's definitely not heavy enough for evening wear. Again, give this a sniff if you get the chance!
Finally, another product I never thought I'd blog about. It's L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray. My gran has used this hairspray since I can remember, and my mum has recently jumped on the bandwagon. I used to stick my nose up at it a little - Elnett was definitely not for me. But recently I saw it on offer in Boots and decided to give it a try. I mean, after all, the bottle was pink and that made it more appealing to me! Oh how superficial I am. Anyway, I'm very glad I picked it up because I do really like it. It's light and easy to brush out at the end of the day. I use it to create some volume on my roots by spraying it with my head upside down. Other times I spray it over freshly straightened hair then run my brush through my hair quickly - helps keep away static and holds my poker straight locks.

I have really worn this top to death and I haven't even had it a fortnight yet. I love it when you find a great steal like this. It also comes in black so I'm tempted to pick that up too!

Something else I have been loving recently is the Glade candles. The red one smells amazing, it's very warming as it smells like cinnamon. A fantastic winter candle. These have been accompanying me with my Lush baths.
And finally, the last thing I want to talk about is the National Demolition in London this Wednesday. That's my ticket above. If your university is participating, I strongly urge you to pick up a ticket and tag along. It's going to be masses of students on the streets of London campaigning against the student cuts and rise in tuition fees.

Et voila, that was my look. Not very scary at all but the full on dark eyes is not something I'd usually go for - and I loved it. Above is a cropped photo of me on actual Hallowen :) lots of fun.
