Charity shopping i.e spending money I really don't have and Maybelline Dream fresh BB Cream

Hey dudes! I'm sat on my sofa drinking a Stella after a hard days charity shopping in Dalston :) Why I thought it was a good idea with no money ill never know, I seriously think I may have a problem, but the pickings were rich, take a look :

Sorry about the mirror pictures guys, desperate times call for desperate measures.


 Denim shirt w/sleeves cut off my me : £3.00


I couldn't resist studding the collar a little.

 Calvin Klein denim Jacket : £3 - gonna get the dip dye treatment/studs

 Kind of sheer but still okay polo crop top : £2.00

Tie dye midi/maxi skirt : £1.99

Vintage high waist Versace Jeans : £7.00
Here's the versace jeans again, I'm planning on bleaching the shit out of them and dying them multicoloured!
I'm also wearing that Primark bodysuit I bought , I tie dyed it, but it washed out quite a lot might do it again tonight .

High waisted white shorts : I'm gonna cut these slut short tie dye them then put them on ebay WATCH THIS SPACE


Vintage Maxmara poloneck top : £3.00

Nice to have some new clothes, it feels like WEEKS since I did some decent shopping. I think I'm going to wear that polo crop to Radio 1 Hackney Weekend, is anyone else coming on the Saturday? Jay Z HELLS TO THE YEAH!

Also this week I was determined to get a tinted moisturiser/light foundation for summer and after some shopping around (a £10 budget doesn’t go far mind) I decided to buy Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream. My housemate Jackie literally informed me of the amazingness that is BB cream whilst we were in boots and it sounded good, primer/foundation/SPF/tinted mousturiser  sounds like the way to go. 
The Boots website says that it smooths and blurs imperfections whilst offering SPF 30 coverage. Also, as I have combination skin so it’s great that this BB cream is oil free. Today I tried it for the first time and I was AMAZED at the results, shopping all day my nose wasn't shiny at all and it usually ends up like a mirror after a couple of hours without powder! I found it lasted really well and gave me a really natural look. Even better, when I go out I do like to layer on the slap with a trowel (don’t we all) and this can go under my foundation quite nicely I imagine. 

Oh yeah and I ONLY JUST WENT AND GOT THAT JOB AT MISS SELFRIDGE OXFORD CIRCUS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! 

AND my lovely boyfriend Rob is coming back from a two week holiday tonight !

Versace+boyfriend+job = best day ever
