I bought this skirt a while ago and never got around to wearing it until last week in one of those “oh yeah!” days when I dig something out with the labels still on and give it a go! I got so many compliments, I had to wear it again… I love it because the colour, fabric and beaded waist means it does all the talking with minimal effort. I wanted it to be the centre-of-attention statement piece. Oh, and did I mention my long-running love affair with my Warehouse biker jacket and this Oasis satchel from ages ago!? I switch between a leopard print scarf and my green heart-printed snood from River Island (today’s it’s the leopard print) and if I’m lucky I’ll be able to wear my silver aviators at some point… pray for sunshine!

I’ve talked about Topshop lipsticks a couple of times now – and that’s because they’re one of the best out there I’ve found! If you can’t afford the price tag of MAC, then these are for you. They are smooth, matte and don’t dry out your lips, and – the best bit of all – they stick around all day! They come in a range of colours, from frosted pinks, taupes and tangerines, but I’m very much a traditionalist, and like to stick to a slick of red – my current favourite is Hazard (pictured), but I have my eye on the brighter All About Me. At £8 each, I can hardly say no! Just add a dab of clear balm for a glossy effect and you’re away.
