Outfit of the day- Secret Skater

My feet look tangoed in this picture, i assure you, they are not!)

Mac Mineralize Blush- Dainty
Mac Lipstick- Creme Cup
Models Own Nail Polish- Beths Blue
OPI Nail Polish- Save Me

Earrings- Vivienne Westwood
Necklace- Accessorize
Rings- JWLRY

Belt- Primark
Dress- Asos
Leggings- New Look
Cardigan- Primark
Bellet Pumps- New Look

It feels like an absolute age since i have done an outfit post. I love making them but i tend to wear the same things over and over and just mix and match things so most of my outfits are very similar . 
I rarely wear anything but dresses these days and recently added this plain grey skater dress to my collection. I was lucky and bought it from the Asos Sale at a bargain price (i think they may still have some left if you have a look!) along with one in pink and one in blue.

 I literally haven't wore a necklace in over a year but this dress made my boobs look even bigger than usual so i reached for this cute yet simple necklace to de-emphasize the booby area. I personally think it did the job however i am thinking about making a clip on peter pan collar (or something along those lines) to add a bit more of a girly touch, what do you think?

Jeffrey Campbell- BeeBee

I have recently been on the hunt for  a great pair of 'flatform' shoes to invest in. They have been very on trend recently (this particular pair even featured in TeenVogue!) and naturally i want to be part of it. 

As the name suggests flatforms are flat platforms, they come in a variety of styles from trainers to brogues and are a great way to keep it comfy yet give a little extra height.
Being 5ft4, i'm on the shorter side and could do with a little extra height on a day to day basis, however i am also a mum of two toddlers! Wearing heels or high wedges aren't very practical to be running errands and playing games, so unfortunately, i am stuck wearing ballet flats day in, day out, boring!

 I love this pair of Jeffrey Campbell Beebee's from Sarenza.co.uk, they are the perfect height and the ankle strap is not only a lovely detail but will give your foot extra support.
I adore the bold leopard print! I generally wear solid colours clothing wise, so these certainly would inject some print into my wardrobe but for those of you who may not need any more prints they also sell a fabulous plain black pair.

Have you jumped on the flatform bandwagon?  I would love to see which pair you chose.

**This is my entry to a competition Sarenza.co.uk is currently hosting to find a new ambassador for their site. 
The winner will receive vouchers to buy shoes every single month to review on their blog. 
I am a shoe-a-holic already but being a mum i can't always splurge as much as i would like. This opportunity is an amazing chance for me to do more fashion related posts and let you all indulge in plenty of beautiful pictures of what girls love most.**

E.L.F 6 In 1 Beauty On The Go

Pretty Picnic

Date Night

Beach Retreat

Party Perfect

Happy Hour

Shopping Spree

Blusher/Bronzers

Lip Colours

E.L.F recently contacted me to tell me about a new website they will be launching within the next few months. The site will include a library of real life images, swatches and videos of E.L.F products to help users get a better feel for what they will get from a particular product before committing to buy. I personally thought this was a fabulous idea, I  ALWAYS search for swatches of products before buying online (as i'm sure many of you do too!) so having the swatches already there for you to see will be so much easier for everybody!
I was so excited about the whole idea i jumped at the chance to swatch the new '6 in 1 Beauty On The Go Set'.*

The 6 in 1 Beauty On The Go Set retails for £10 on eyeslipsface.co.uk and you receive 6 individual palettes which each contain 10 eyeshadows, 1 Blush/Bronzer and 2 Lip Colours. Each Palette clicks into the sleek black 'Beauty On The Go' Compact easily so you can pop it in your make up bag and have everything you need.

The Blushers/Bronzers were my favourite part of the palettes, some great colours which are pigmented and easy to apply, especially the blush in the Party Perfect palette.

It certainly would make a great, reasonably priced gift for any makeup lover. 
What do you think of the set? Something you would be interested in?

E.L.F have kindly give me a code for my readers to receive 25% off this set until the end of January. Simple use the code: Peachfizz0259

MAC Lipstick- Creme Cup


Mac Creme Cup Lipstick is definitely my favourite lipstick of all time,  a light blue pink cremesheen lipstick, something i would repurchase over and over again.
Cremesheen is one of my favourite MAC finishes, it's pigmented and leaves a slight gloss to the lips but nothing too over the top.
The colour is amazing, it suits my skin tone really well and it's girly without being too in your face.
I would recommend this lipstick to anybody!

Do you own this lipstick? love it as much as i do?

JWLRY By LLYMLRS

Five Stone Ring Mix and Turquoise Small Rectangle Ring

I have recently been drooling over the JWLRY store run by fashion blogger LLYMLRS. She often wears her rings on her own blog in her outfit posts and they always look so unique and eye catching that i couldn't help getting my hands on a few for myself.
After much deliberation i decided to order the 'Five Stone Ring Mix' and a 'Turquoise Small Rectangle Ring'. I received them a couple of days after and was delighted with them.
I have worn them (not all at once though!) every day since and have actually had many compliments on them.
They are all adjustable so they can be worn on any finger which such a plus in my eyes.
Definitely will be ordering a couple more in the near future.

Have you ever ordered from JWLRY?

Vivienne Westwood Boudoir Jouy Edition Perfume


As you may all know i'm Vivienne Westwood's number one fan so i was delighted to add this perfume to my collection.
With top notes of red berries and mandarin zest, mingled with the lush green scent of bamboo sap it is a much fresher, lighter version of the original Boudoir scent which for me, makes it a lot more wearable.

The original Boudoir is a lovely scent but extremely heavy and can quickly give me a headache, this perfume however is again an amazing scent but i can wear it all day long without getting sick of it.
The bottle is exactly the same as the original Boudoir scent with  the added illustration. the orb lid is my absolute favourite and looks amazing sitting on my dresser.

This perfumer retails at £46 for 50ml, however is currently half price on Hervia.com.

Lovely Jubblies Breast Cream


When i received this pot of 'Lovely Jubblies' breast cream for christmas among my Lush gifts i was intrigued.
As you may or may not know, i am a mother of two young girls.
 I chose to breastfeed both of my children and as expected my own pair of 'lovely jubblies' have definitely took a bit of a beating from it.
I have always had boobies of a larger size and i dread the day i wake up to see them knocking against my knees (ew!) so anything that may help prevent that time arriving is worth a try in my eyes.

Admittedly i was skeptical and i wasn't expecting miracles but it does actually seem to work!
I have only used it a dozen times after i shower/take a bath but my jubblies feel super soft and although they aren't perfect and perky (i wish!) they do seem slightly firmer.

The smell is an extremely heavy floral scent which you can smell for hours after applying and unfortunately can interfere with any perfumes which you choose to wear (boo!). Having said that, it wasn't a big issue for me as i loved the smell so much i went without any perfume after using it.

With a price tag of £15.75 it is expensive but if it's helping my boobies stay boobilicious i'm happy to hand over the cash.

Sorry, no pictures of it in action because that would just be, well.....weird! 

Have you tried any breast creams? What are your thoughts?

No7 Nail Collection

Left to right: Damson Dream, Vivid Violet, Sing The Blues, Totally Teal, Hot To Trot.

The No7 Nail Collection gift set contains 5 4ml bottles of No7 Stay Perfect nail colours, some of which are best sellers and the others are some of their latest shades.

First of all, i love nail polish gift sets, they give you a chance to try out new colours without splashing out the full retail price. This particular gift set from No7 consists of a lovely range of colours for A/W which will have a shade to suit everybody.

No7 Stay Perfect nail polishes apply well and generally only need two coats. I have to admit though, they aren't my first choice of polish, as they tend to be aimed towards an older age group with a majority of their colours being metallic/shimmer.

Overall i love this gift set and can see myself using every shade, however 'Hot to Trot' is definitely the firm favourite.

Will you be looking for this set in the sales or did you receive any nail polish gift sets yourself this christmas?
