So, my new(ish) velvet skater skirt is totally my new favourite staple in my wardrobe. I bought it a month or two back now and I've had so much wear out of it since, it seems insane this is the first time it has made it on to the blog. As it's a plain black skirt, it goes with the vast majority of items in my wardrobe and because it's a skater skirt, it's really flattering. However, the velvet (like material) gives it a bit of texture and that something a bit extra. I really love it. The best bit is it would look amazing on anyone!

Paired my pink and black ruffled top from Lipsy, I really think I've stumbled onto a dream team here. I've had this top since my first year of uni and I wore it to death. It had slowly been getting more neglected but I loved it too much for that to happen and since buying the skirt, my adored Lipsy top has well and truly been resurrected. The bonus is that this Lipsy top can quite easily class as work wear for me now too, yippee!

2014 is the year I am experimenting with hair styles, as you've probably gathered from the sudden appearance of a top knot. The real reason I want to experiment with my hair is because I own so many gorgeous hair accessories but I never wear them anywhere near enough and I want that to change. I'm also eyeing up a lot more so I better start wearing the ones I have now to justify buying more. This bow is particular from the wonderful Prairie Charms is a stunner. A beautiful shade of pastel pink glitter, it's just the perfect size for adorning my tiny top knot. I love it so much. I actually did a blog post about Prairie Charms here, which I recommend taking a look at. They're a fantastic blog and really know how to work with bloggers too. 

Finally, onto my makeup. Since receiving the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette for Christmas and buying myself a new eyeliner pen after getting unbelievably frustrated with my (rubbish) Barry M one, I've really, really started putting effort in with my eye makeup again and I'm really loving have daily eyeliner flicks again. The combination of Habit on my brow bone, Dope all over my lid and Toxic in the crease is definitely my favourite go to pink every day look at the moment. Finish it off with an eyeliner flick for something even better or a look that can easily be taken right on into the night time. So excited to get my Urban Decay makeup look on my YouTube channel, believe me. 

What do you think of this look? A+ if I may say so myself yeah?
