Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice



Top - Topshop / Skirt - H&M / Necklace - Topshop / Bracelet - Girlprops / Rings - Urban Outfitters

I am a little bit obsessed with leather skirts right now. I bought both the skater & pleated style ones from H&M at the beginning of the year and I find myself wearing them constantly. I think they're both really versatile and add a cool edge to an outfit. Today I've paired the skater style one with this stripey top from Topshop. I saw one of the sales assistants in the Manchester Arndale store wearing this last month & have wanted it ever since. I definitely look a bit Beetlejuicy, especially with my white blonde hair. Hopefully I look a bit more put together than him though haha!

My boyfriend had a week off work recently and we spent most of it eating. Think we went through about 4 packs of steak! Needless to say my face looks a bit pudgy. I actually put on 4lbs in one week! Last week I was very luckily contacted by Jenny Craig who offered to send me a 14 day trial of their programme. I jumped at the chance and after speaking with my consultant on Wednesday I did my first day of the diet yesterday. It all seems really easy so far and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the food is delicious. Yesterday I had chocolate cereal for breakfast, chorizo & bean soup for lunch, then chicken tikka for dinner. Heres hoping that the rest of the meals are just as good & that I manage to shift the weight I put on by doing it! I'll let you know how I get on.




The lipstick I'm wearing is one of the Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colours. This neon pink colour is called Crush. I love the formula of these as they're really long lasting and glossy without being sticky. This colour is just so bright, I couldn't resist it. Its fairly warm toned compared to most neon colours so I'd liken it to an even brighter version of MAC Impassioned. On another note I'm totally loving my foundation today. I bought the Barry M white foundation creme yesterday and mixed it with my Estee Lauder Double Wear in Shell. Hello perfect colour match! Totally recommend it if your foundation is a bit dark for you. Huge thanks to Amy for the awesome tip!

  2. Such a cute outfit! Definitely Beetlejuice-esque, only you're the more polished and non-gross female version, haha. Great movie, right? I love little Winona Ryder!

    I'm dying to get my hands on a leather skirt. They're so dressy and you can pretty much wear them with anything. I love that spike necklace too. I'm going to London in July and as sad as it might be, Topshop is the #1 thing I'm most excited about, haha.

    I hope everything goes well the with diet! Good luck, hun. :)

  12. Ooh, love the outfit! Impassioned is one of my favourite lipsticks, but I have so many bright pink lipsticks I should pass on the Urban Decay one!
    Ok, that foundation tip is freakishly well timed- I wear a Clinique Redness Solutions foundation which is the only thing that can sort out my red face, but it has a really small colour range and it is a little too dark for me. I was trying to think of something that was cheaper than the Face Atelier Zero Minus but couldn't think of anything- this will save me a lot of money, since Zero Minus is hideously expensive- £34!!

  24. I have a brown leather pencil skirt type deal that I love to pieces, but it's definitely one not to be worn on a fat day! Your leather skirt is gorgeous. And I love the lip gloss; bit weird to think it's a pencil, but it obviously looks good on!

  27. Oh this is the perfect outfit. I'm so annoyed that H&M always seemed to be sold out in my size for those leather skirts! It looks gorgeous on you. Good luck with your Jenny Craig trial, I'm going on a health kick this week too because I've been so bad lately! That Urban Decay lipstick looks amazing, I haven't heard of it before but I may have to try it out xx
