Red Accents

I can't do pale without a spot of bright colour. So what better than my cute bow flats and a slick of red lipstick? I'm still looking for a good red lipstick and luckily, as a result of my mom's love of MAC technakohl eyeliner, I have enough empties to swap for a red lipstick! I love their recycling program!

I saw these in the Topshop sale and thought they were too cute to pass up.

My dad saw the Hello Kitty magazine advertised on TV with these cute dinner plates free with each copy. Naturally, he thought of me and my sisters and went and picked 3 copies for us! Haha. My dad is awesome!!

Gosh, my posts have been severely food based lately. It seems that when I am supposed to be studying, I can only think of food. So what happened this time? I baked Banana and Walnut cupcakes! Remember how my friends recognised my love of baking/cupcake paraphernalia, and all managed to buy me cupcake related presents for my birthday? I finally put some of the presents to some use!

They went down a treat! Nom!

  3. That is really funny, I was planning a post in red accents myself this week (although I didn't realise it was a trend). I have just bought a beige dress and a bright red necklace.

    I love your outfit. I am now thinking that my dress may benefit from some amazing red shoes - very Dorothy.

    The cupcakes look delicious. A large amount of my tim is spent thinking about and eating cakes!

  21. Waaa! River Island and Topshop, it's almost enough to make me homesick! Those shoes are amazing. By the way, you are 100% perfect for a strong red lip colour. You can't go wrong with MAC but Shiseido have some good ones too!
