'Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking' | OOTD

So sad to say this will probably be my last fashion post for the foreseeable future. Unless you guys are interested in seeing my sexy NHS sandals and crutches? Look out for many wish-lists though, even if I can't properly wear the clothes, I can still think about them, right? I have spent this afternoon watching The Devil Wears Prada, which is one of my favourite films of all time - hence the title today! Please continue to leave your blog links down below or on twitter (@LittleRoseRozzi) because I've got lots of spare time on my hands!

Skirt: Primark | Csmi Top: Topshop | Blazer: Primark | Shoes: Next
Okay, so I know it's not quite spring, however I can definitely pretend! I love the way this top compliments this skirt - the colours go so nicely together! I absolutely fell in love with this skirt when I saw it in Primark, I just don't think it looks as cheap as it is! It cost me £12, which was cheaper than the top! I know that this is more of a spring outfit, but I am seriously excited for the seasons to change, so yes, I'm dressing for it - even though I wore this with a big coat when I actually left the house... but the thought was there.

My Instagram Prints | Polargram

Polargram Instagram Prints
I always think having actual prints of photos is such a lovely thing to have. As amazing and easy as I think virtual photos are, I do miss flicking through a photo album or having actual photos to put up on the wall. A really great alternative to this is a Polaroid camera, (something I have lusted over for years!) but I just cannot justify spending money on it, especially as I know I won't take it 'out and about' with me as much as I will initially intend to, and therefore won't capture all the moments I want to treasure. Enter: Polargram!

For seriously easy peasy and inexpensive photo printing, I would highly recommend Polargram. At first, I only wandered on to their website to have a nosy - thinking that to have pictures printed would cost a bomb. 'Nuh-uh' ladies and gentlemen.

When you enter the site, it gives you the option to sign in, and gather your photos from Instagram, (a good way to do it as it removes any sizing issues). Simple really, they're all laid out there in front of you, and you click on the ones you'd like printed!

Pricing works like this; you can either choose 12, 24 or 48 prints, and thats £5, £7 or £10. And that includes delivery. And a Drumstick sweet.  I chose 24 prints for £7, as I didn't quite want 48, (However in hindsight I may as well have gone with double the amount of prints for only £3 extra!) My prints then arrived very quickly, which I was not expecting, and I have to say I was very impressed with the quality of the prints I received!

However, there is only one thing I would note... The photos I had chosen that had an Instgram filter over were considerably lower in quality. Not bad quality, just not as good. This is more than often noticeable on Instagram before even entering Polargram however - they can only print what they are given! So maybe something to bear in mind.

Will you be getting any prints done? Would you be interested in a post on how I'm going to put these up!?

Love, Rozzi xxx

My Mac Eyeshadow Palette | Quad

Top L-R: Cranberry | Amber Light
Bottom L-R: Naked Lunch | All That Glitters
Mac Eyeshadow Palette. Those words make my heart extremely excited, and my purse very anxious. At £6.50 for the palette, and £10 for each colour, this baby doesn't work out cheap, however I received some vouchers for Mac for my birthday, and so my long desired Mac Palette was born. I opted for two neutral colours, and then two a little bolder, so I think I have a nice mixture of everything!

Cranberry - Maybe more of a winter shade, but Cranberry is a really beautiful shade. A deep plummy/red, with a gorgeous shimmer running through it.

Amber Lights - A beautiful peachy/gold shade which I was assured would go nicely with my green eyes! Again, beautifully shimmery, and a perfect Amber shade.

Naked Lunch - A light, shimmery rose gold, perfect for an inner corner highlight or under the brow as a highlight as well.

All That Glitters - Quite possibly the most popular Mac eyeshadow, and the first on my list to get! All That Glitters is a beautiful nude shade, with an iridescent peachy/gold sheen to it.

All of the shades  are beautifully pigmented, and the longevity is great, but using a good primer underneath makes the colours pop even more, and reduces the already minimal fall down. Although it wasn't cheap, it is definitely an exciting investment, and I can't wait to build up my palette with more beautiful colours!

What do you think of Mac's eyeshadow palettes? Do you think they're worth the hype?

Lush | My Favourites

Lush is one of my all time favourite brands you can get on the high street, cheap prices for brilliant organic products, and products for everything you could want! Before I start, I should let you know that I have oily/combination spot prone skin, so a lot of the facial products are aimed to control this.

Popcorn Lip Scrub
Okay so you could probably make this yourself, but for £5.50, I would rather just go for this popcorn scented delight for my lips. It helps buff away any dead or flaky skin on your lips, leaving a perfect base for a balm and then colour.

Enzymion Moisturiser
My everyday moisturiser, helps keep my oily skin at bay without drying out my dryish patches. It does have a smell, but it doesn't irritate my skin - however if you think this might be a problem for you, might be best to ask for a sample first!

Cupcake Facemask
Cupcake is a great face mask for unclogging pores and keeping your skin clear. It smells amazing, a mixture of chocolate and peppermint, which makes in a top choice to smear all over my face. It absorbs excess oil, and claims to keep breakouts at a minimum. I got about 3/4 uses of this mask, so for just under £6, I thought it was a bargain for the results.

Ayesha Facemask
Another great face mask, clay based this time, which helps leave skin radiant and refreshed by deep cleaning all your pores, leaving everything fresh and clean. Again at only £5.95 you can't go wrong, and you get a good 3 to 4 uses of this mask depending on how generously you apply it.

Big Sea Salt Shampoo
When I felt this product, I've got to say I was surprised at how big the segments of sea salt were and I thought it would make my hair dry and broken. However mixed with water, it in fact makes for the softest texture I've felt in an organic shampoo! It leaves my hair feeling nourished, with amazing volume, not to mention the incredible fresh smell! A new discovery, but already a favourite.

Tea Tree Toner Water
This product leaves my skin feeling clean, and tea tree has always been one of my favourite scents, and its antibacterial properties help keep spots at bay, which is big must for me! I use it whenever I feel like my skin needs refreshing, and my skin quite literally drinks this product up!

Grease Lightning Spot Treatment
This is a miracle product, the best spot treatment I've ever used, and one that actually works! The concept is, you put it on an active breakout, and it works to calm the spot, reducing the swelling and softening any redness.  It works slowly but effectively, and if you're willing to wait, it will not only reduce the spot itself, but any scarring as well.

So these are my favourite products from Lush! However I most definitely not done trying the whole shop. What are your favourites?

Love Rozzi xxxx

Next on my list: Skin Drink, R and B, Brazened Honey & Sea Spray.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink | OOTD

Coat: Topshop | Dress: eBay | Heels: New Look
Just so you know, my foot hasn't made a miraculous recovery (waaa). These photos were taken prior to my little accident, but at least luckily I still have some blog posts to put up!

I fell in love with the ASOS smock dress in this print, but it sold out so quickly I didn't have a chance to order it! Then I found this gorgeous dress whilst searching through eBay, and although the shape isn't as lovely as the ASOS one, it was a good £20 cheaper and the print is very similar, if not the same! It goes really nicely with my Topshop coat, that I am using every excuse to wear at the moment, hence it's second feature on the blog already! All in all, this is a very simple & comfortable outfit, that I loved wearing.

I have one outfit post left to put up that I took before breaking my foot, so definitely expect more beauty posts over the next couple of weeks!

The Urban Decay Naked Three Palette | Review

The Naked 3 Palette has been on my wish list since it came out, and so when I unwrapped it on my birthday, its safe to say my mum instantly received the honour of the 'best present' award. Although it has received a few mixed views, I love it, and have been wearing it non stop since I got it.  If you're considering getting it, it is a lot of money to part with, but for the quality of the shadows, you're getting good quality for money. 

Strange - A beautiful matte peachy shade, perfect for an under the brow or inner-corner highlight. 
Dust - Certainly lives up to its name, the only shade that worries me slightly, as fall down is almost unavoidable! However it's a gorgeous light pink shimmery shade, beautifully nude and perfect for spring.
Burnout - A perfect pastel pink, matte shade that would be lovely for a very simple nude crease colour.
Limit - Another matte pink shade, lovely for an every day, natural look. A perfect shade to warm up your crease for a simple, everyday look. 
Buzz - A slightly darker pink, with a gorgeous shimmer running through it. This shade is definitely up my street, I love shimmer and I love nudes. Perfect combo. 
Trick - A gorgeous pinky-copper shade, perfect for a night out or a dressy makeup look. A hint of bronze shimmer running through it, making it a gorgeous shade for green eyed gals.
Nooner - A matte browny-pink shade, which I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of! One sweep of the beauty, and you've got yourself a fuss-free defined eye look. 
Liar - The first metallic shade, with a hint of both mauve and browns. I would definitely sport this shade on a night out.
Factory - A very similar shade to Liar, however slightly darker with a pinky undertone.
Mugshot - A mixture of Liar & Factory, a taupe/silver metallic shade. 
Darkside - A very deep dark purple, highly pigmented, and perfect for a smoky eye. Very matte, and a brilliant crease colour. 
Blackheart - My favourite from this palette. A matte black colour, perfect for a smoky eye. It has a gorgeous 'rosy red micro-sparkle' running through it, which makes this colour completely unique to my eye-shadow collection. 

All in all, Naked 3 is definitely my favourite palette I own, with colours to suit every day to nights out! Look out for a post coming soon of the looks I've created using this palette! Have you jumped on this pink, shimmery bandwagon yet?

The Long Bob | Short Hair Inspiration

All images saved from my Pinterest - link.
I am writing this cuddled up on the sofa after having a very traumatic day. I am now bed bound, with crutches as my only mode of transportation and a broken foot. Ow.  To cheer myself up, I though I would share my inspiration for cutting my hair short - or at least shorter!

My hair feels so much healthier after cutting off all the nasty dry split ends, and it's so much nicer to wash and dry! I'm still experimenting with how to style it differently, but so far, I am absolutely loving my new 'above the shoulder' length.

You can follow my Hair & Beauty board on Pinterest, and see loads of different styles I like, whether it would be for long or short hair! -see link.

I'm going to need lots of good blog posts to read to take my mind off the pain, so if you're a blog writer, please leave your links below!

Every Night We'll Watch The Stars | OOTD

Yellow Checked Coat: Zara | Cream Jumper: H&M | Jeans: New Look | Shoes: New Look
This post features two major sale bargains. The bigger of the two being this gorgeous checked coat from Zara. I ummed and ahh'd about whether to buy this coat, and then of course it sold out and I decided I needed it. Typical. However I was doing some serious Zara shopping with Toby's mum Jo when I went to Lisbon in July, and found it, in my size, for €40 (roughly £33!) Amazing. However, because I bought it late summer, it soon became far too cold to wear back in the UK, so I am eagerly awaiting Spring to whack out this beauty.

Second bargain are these beautiful cream heels from New Look. Super comfy, with a nice thick heel, making me look taller, but not costing me any comfort. Win. New Look is so good for good quality, well priced fashion, definitely a favourite of mine.

Are you looking forward to spring?!

Lots of Love, Rozzi xxx

Can I Get Your Lips To Speak My Name? | OOTD

Coat: Topshop | T-Shirt: New Look | High-Waisted Black Jeans: Primark | Brown Brogues: New Look (sold out, but similar here)
First of all, big apologies for the lack of posts - I can't believe how long it's been since I sat down and wrote a post! It's been a hectic couple of weeks, and what with the weather & everything, finding a good day to go out and shoot some outfits has been impossible! And yes, everyone with eyes will see half of my hair is gone! I decided to bite the bullet and go for it, long bob it is. (post to follow soon!)
Anyway, onto the outfit....

I bought this coat in the Topshop sale for £45. Yes, £45! I was so excited to find ways to style it, so keep your eyes pealed for many more outfits featuring this pink beauty. It is also fair to say stripes are one of my current obsessions. I keep buying stripes, forgetting I have millions of stripy tops/dresses/jumpers already in my wardrobe! Forgetting that, I love the way it looks with my pink coat and I feel very Paris-chic in it.

How would you style this coat?

Lots of Love,

Cosy Jumper Day | OOTD

Jumper: Apricot | Jeans: Primark | Boots: New Look | Necklace: H&M
Toby and I braved the January sales the other day, and what better to wear than a cosy knit and comfy boots?!
My parents bought me this beautiful jumper from Apricot, I love the wintery print, but not only this, it is the nicest feeling material, making it super warm & cosy. Yes, I'm wearing those Primark jeans again. Considering they cost me £11, they're high waisted and very comfortable, I will continue to wear them over and over! In fact I'm considering giving them a blog post all to themselves...
And finally, is it just me who is in love with these boots? I picked them up in a cheeky New Look sale before Christmas, and they haven't been off my feet. I love the cowboy-esque vibes they give, but they really do go with so much!

Love, Rozzi xxx
