Hello everybody, how are you doing?
I am seriously depressed by this weather, I don't pretend summer but, dear me, spring at least!
So who has heard about the website Pretty Little Thing ?
Is an on line shopping paradise, heaven for dresses, shoes, jewellery, accessories, very pocket friendly and updated with all the latest in fashion.
The company that owns it s the same than boohoo, just to give you an idea.
Back in April, there was an event held in Manchester and thanks of my Mum and Dad babysitting Precious Baby I was able to go.
Location was stunning and if you are familiar with Manchester does not need introduction: I am talking about Rosso Restaurant, situated in town and famous for gorgeous food, cocktails and celebrities spotted very frequently.
Look at the "celebrities wall" and at the beautiful dome..
There were cocktails, drinks and gorgeous food with a very special dedicated menu', the blogger menu!
Unfortunately I got there quite late so I couldn't enjoy any of it, sob sob (*trows fists in the air*).
On one side of the place the new collection from Pretty Little Thing was on display around some tables.
Neon colours, monochrome, prints, check them all!
I have been browsing the web site and there are so many things I would like to buy.
The good thing is that one one website you can find everything, from shoes (look at the neon heels!) to dresses, from bags to jewellery and everything with very pocket friendly prices.
We were given the option to choose something to review and I cannot really wait to show you what I got!!!
If you are thinking about buying from the website let me know what you get!! Here are some nice things taken from the press release!
Love the bag!

Considering that I've got only one hand free and night time TV is crap, the easiest thing is having a smart phone on the hand and this means...eBay here I come (this shows you people how dangerous is the combination "free time - Internet connection - pay pal").
The first thing I wanna show you is a pair of earrings.
What do you think?
I was intrigued by the kind of punk design, they are pretty '80 inspired and the beads have got this duo chrome shade that changes from blue to purple.
I payed not more than 6 pounds for this, shipping included.
The seller I got them from doesn't have any left in stock now but you can find the same item in a different colour here.
The second thing is a make up brush. I personally buy 90% of my make up brushes off eBay and I am always browsing around to find new types and brands.
This is a synthetic brush with a tapered head, medium size.
I found it quite handy to apply concealer and any creamy or liquid highlighter.
The size is perfect to be quite accurate but quick at the same time.
I washed this a couple of time already and i cannot recall any problem.
The seller I bought this brush from is this.
I bought several other brushes from the same seller and I have never been disappointed in terms of quality, price or shipping and there are some nice duo fibre set very similar to the one that sigma does that are ready on my wish list.
Any eBay haul you want to share?

One good thing about having a dog is that when you buy any shampoo or bodywash and you end up not enjoying it, you can always use it for your fluffy friend.
So far my adorable dog has been treated with kerastase(too greasy for my hair), some l'oreal, john frieda etc..
When I spotted this in a pound shop I was intrigued by the argan oil and I decided to give it ago and to pass it to him eventually.
Well, sorry my friend but this time this remains in my cupboard, because
I am really impressed by the quality of this little one pound product.
Let me tell you first that my hair is very damaged by heat, several relaxing treatments and don't know how many brazilian blow dries, and on my scalp tents to be a little bit greasy after a couple of days of washing it.
The first thing I can tell you is that it cleans deeply without being too aggressive, and even on the scalp it works perfectly without drying out the skin.
After the blow dry ( I always use an hairdryer, shame on me) my hair is soft, shiny and the styling is much easier.
They kinda feel stronger and thicker.
Another good thing I noticed when using this product is that I don't find my hair are starting to get oily and greasy after 2 days as usual, they stay pretty fresh and clean.
As a conditioner, at the moment I am using the James Brown London Rich Moisture Conditioner and I must say this combination really works well for me.
Permit me insist onone thing, ONE POUND LADIES, ONE POUND!
I am hunting down the conditioner from the same brand now, pound shop here I come.

Every time I go there, I could stay hours going around the rails and my poor bank account is in serious danger.
I could tell you about so many incredible deals I found there, especially regarding brands that are not very famous in England but maybe very expensive in Italy, and we are talking about clothes, make up, accessories, home wear, everything!!
Last Sunday I went there looking for a new vase for the lounge..and of course I bought everything but the vase.
One of the thing I bought was a pair of sunnies.(avoid jokes about how useless are sunnies in this city thanks).
I was looking for this kind of shape since spotting something similar one on the beautiful face of Kourtney Kardashian, so it was a very lucky find.
The designer is Steve Madden, quite famous in USA, but I paid a very little price for this, only
I really like the cat eye shape and the brown frame, it's a vintage look that got me as soon as I tried them on.
If you are looking for nice sunglasses at a deal price I recommend you a visit to your local TK Maxx, and stay tuned for few more great purchases!
