LToday I braved a bare middrift, and immediately regretted it when it began snowing. Thank god for those trusty Primark Super Cost tights! I'm in love with this skirt from Mary Jane Fashion, the pattern, fit and length are all just right and I could see this making an appearance with a pair of sandals and a bandeau in the warmer months.

The Haul: Drugstore Makeup

It's becoming clear these days that I can't say no to an offer, so when recently pursuing the shelves of Boots and stumbling across that oh so beautiful sight of a 'three for two' sign hovering above the cosmetics, all else left my mind and I headed straight for it.

Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paint

I'm always a fan of a seriously good nail varnish formula. Glossy, fast drying, well pigmented and long lasting are all traits that I look for when finding that perfect little bottle of colour. After slowly building up a collection over the last few months (and loving them even more with every new purchase) Barry M's new Gelly Nail Paint might just be the polish that takes the title.

A New Look

Hello everyone and welcome to the newly redesigned I Covet Thee! I've been writing this blog for a whole two years now and thought it was about time to get rid of the tired old layout and bring it up to date. Fingers crossed you all like it as I know personally the aesthetics of a blog are very important to me when I read them myself! I've also added quite a few new links and features, so lets have a little tour.

Nautical Disco Pants

Striped Tee - River Island
Disco Pants - American Apparel
Headscarf - Primark

Bit of a boring one today, sorry guys, I've got a really bad cold and I'm sat on my bed surrounded by Neurofen and snotty tissues, living the serious glam life right now. The tee is just a bit of an essential that I picked up last term from the mens section in River Island, I think it was around a fiver. My search for the perfect breton tee is an ongoing quest, a bit like my search for the perfect pink lipstick - this one comes close, but its just not quite there as the sleeves are slightly too short to roll up. The search continues!

The headscarf was a little bargain I got from Primark at the weekend, I think it was £1.50. As soon as i saw it I sprinted to the till with it, as its perfect (and cheap!) for a fancy dress I'm going to in Liverpool at the weekend for my best friend Steph's 21st. Her theme is 1940s, for a V Day B'Day! (amazing). I'm going as Rosie the Riveter, and have a full navy boiler suit to wear, and I've been practicing my 40s hair and makeup. So excited, I love me a good fancy dress party!
