Primark now at ASOS?!

Primark and ASOS are two of my favourite places to shop, but I never expected to see both of those names in the same place. 

Primark said it would sell a limited number of items online for a trial period, in order to gain "insight" into online retailing. - BBC news.
I know some people think that primark is cheap (which it was, but some prices are creeping up!) and that it may lower ASOS' reputation, however ASOS' target market is young, fashionable men and women and a lot of them are on a budget, so by stocking Primark, ASOS are expanding again to the more price conscious.      

Stocking Primarni can only do ASOS favours and add to their reputation, but I just can't imagine shopping online at Primark, I love a good rummage around the shop. 

Do you like the idea of Primark being online?

FeelUnique Wishlist

Feel Unique is one of my favourite websites, free delivery, student discount and thousands of beauty and hair products = perfect!

Here are a few of the things I am currently lusting after:

1- Fake Bake 60 minute tan. I like to apply fake tan a couple of times a week to keep up a summery glow all year long. At the moment I like to use St Moriz; cheap and cheerful and does the job well. The main thing that appeals to me about 60 minutes self tan from fake bake is the fact that it takes 60 minutes to apply. No more staining of clothes or bed sheets and doesn't take up a great deal of your day. It costs £21.20 and you can buy it here.

2- Mavala Scientifique nail hardener. My nails are brittle and fragile from regularly having acrylic nails. I havn't had acrylics on for a few months now and I am slowly starting to see an improvement in the condition of my nails. I've tried a few products aimed at strengthening nails and havn't really noticed much difference, but I am always on the lookout for something new to try. It costs £11.70, you can buy it here.

3- Kerastase Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil-Enriched Masque. Kerastase is a brand I am yet to try, however most of their products appeal to me and I have heard great reviews, so I'm sure it wont be long untill I have made my first purchase! This masque claims to leave hair feeling luxuriously nourished and soft to the touch, just what my hair needs! It costs £22.80 and you can buy it here.

4- Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment. Glamglow is a brand that I haven't heard of before. I love a good face mask and stumbled across this one when I was looking for a new one to replace my beloved Una Brennan Superfacialist Tea Flower Purifying Clay Mask. This treatment can be used as a full face mask or targeted spot treatment and aims to target, prevent and heal for seemingly poreless skin. It costs £39.99 and you can buy it here.

5- Benefit Fine One One Brightening Cheek And Lip Trio. This contains a combination of three colours that can be used on both cheeks and lips. The colours are pink champagne, sheer watermelon and soft coral and three colours are beautiful. Benefit products never fail to impress me, from the amazing packaging to the brilliant products inside. This costs £23.50 and you can buy it here.

Goldwell Kerasilk Ultra Rich Treatment Review

Goldwell isn't a brand I am familiar with, I first heard about this hair treatment after reading good reviews on someones blog, and instantly decided I needed it. I bought it from amazon for £7.90 which is a bargain for how well it works, you can buy it here. Goldwell's Kerasilk Treatment is described on the bottle as "Treatment for extremely dry, damaged and unmanageable hair" and advises you to leave it on for between 5-15 minutes depending on the condition of your hair. My hair, after years of trying to grow it is dry, brittle and is full of split ends. After using this treatment once a week for 5 weeks I have noticed a massive difference in the appearance and feel of my hair and that the ends dont break off as they used to. 

After being so impressed with the ultra rich treatment, I am soon going to be buying more Goldwell products. Have you tried any products from Goldwell?

Weekly wants - Topshop

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

1- This fluorescent cropped jumper is beautiful! I am a magpie for anything fluorescent at the moment and this jumper is a great piece for spring/summer, at £34 it doesn't break the bank either. You can buy it here.

2 - I have a love/hate relationship with Topshop jeans but always end up buying more! These daisy print Leigh jeans will look lovely in summer with some gladiator sandals and a crop top, they are £40. You can buy them here.

3- I am in need of some new summer shoes and these would be perfect. They will go with anything, and I can see myself wearing them with a cute little dungarees, they are £30. You can buy them here.

4- This pretty pastel spotted denim skirt caught my eye, it would look lovely with a tan! I thought £30 was a little expensive for a skirt, but it is so pretty i don't know if i can resist! You can buy it here.

5- I love this embossed backpack and have been looking for a nice leather one at car boots and in charity shops recently. A while ago I saw a black one in Primark, didn't buy it and have regretted it ever since. This bag is £75, which for me is a lot to spend on a bag. However, it is made from leather and suede so the quality is likely to be great. You can buy it here.

Is there anything you have your eye on in Topshop at the moment?

Primark Haul

Recently I popped into primark to have a browse and only ended up with three things, which is considerably less than normal, but I am very happy with them all.

I was looking for a pretty dress or playsuit and this caught my eye. The colours will look lovely with a tan and for £7 is a bargain!

I saw a pair of coral wedges in River Island recently for £50 and was considering buying them, but when i saw these for £14 I had to have them! They are the perfect summer colour and are really comfortable.

This pretty little top reminded me of something you would see in topshop for at least 5x the price! It'll look lovely with a pair of jeans and a blazer or with some little shorts.

Rihanna for River Island

I thought I would start of my blog with something that I am very excited about.. Rihanna for River Island. When her first collection came out at the start of this year I got up at the crack of dawn and managed to get the pieces i wanted online, I Love them! The Summer collection is available from tomorrow, here are some pictures from the collection

Pictures from www.riverisland.com

I've got my eye on some of the floral pieces and will more than likely pick up some other bits too!
