Little Purchases and Girl Power :)

Hello lovelies :)

So cash is very short at the moment and I want SO much, such is life hey?!

Anyway, today I went to Asda on my lunch break and picked up a couple of little things I found, then this evening I went late night shopping, just to browse and for something to do! I got 1 little thing there too but saw loads I wanted :-(

Union Jack bow £2.50 - cute!
Nailene Perfect Tips, pack of 96(!) just 99p!

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil, shade 004 'Black Brown' (it was the last shade there and I was unsure, never used an eyebrow pencil.....)

Excited to use these and do some French tips!

I have no clue if this will be any good and the thought of using a brow pencil is quite daunting! 

Up next...

Anyone remember these babies being in fashion???

Well, according to the March issue of Company magazine, Buffalo boots are coming back with a bang!
Buffalo boots retail at between £80-120
They were HUGE in the 90's, made famous by the the Spice Girls
I got this pair of Buffalo STYLE boots when I was 11 and kept them in the back of my fancy dress cupboard (yes, I have one!) for the past 14 years, until now!
They still fit, are extremely heavy and slightly dirty but I can't help but think they are pretty cool...
I actually lived in these back in the day!
I also had a few other pairs of similar Spice Girl style shoes and boots but got rid way back!
So glad I kept these ones, though not sure I will be wearing them out...
Somewhere hip like London maybe...but in my small hometown...may not go down so well, haha!

What do you think of these?
Will you be embracing these and bringing back the Girl Power?
and finally...HOW would you style these??

In Other News...
Very happy Zo yesterday :) My package from the lovely ladies at Batiste was waiting for me when I got home from work :)
Such a nice thought, thank you, Batiste!

*No make-up, just got home from work!*

I have been rocking the cherry nails all week (can't believe they stayed good all this time without topcoat!) but now it is time for a change...what to do??
I'm thinking of trying out the Nailene Perfect Tips kit...but what colours do I use??
I shall report back ;-)

Hope you are all having a nice week, it's almost Friday...YAY!!!
