OOTD leather and giveaway

I love my little Topshop flippy dresses, but I usually tend to wear them in the same way-with a little cardigan and flats. I do like this and feel really comfortable in it, but I thought I'd mix things up today. So I went into my packed wardrobe (really do need to stop hoarding) and pulled out a few things:

I have a beautiful leather jacket (well, I think so) that I got in the sale at Warehouse a few years ago. I hardly ever wear it, but I should, especially whilst it's still in between winter and spring and so cold enough for a coat. I quite like the biker chick(ish) look.

I also hardly every wear these shoes. I bought them from Office a few years ago for a whopping £90. I would never spend that much on shoes nowadays! I wore them out on the way to Paris once, where I had to run to catch the train whilst hauling a min elephant of a suitcase behind me. Not a clever move kids. Don't wear heels when you have to walk miles and carry lots. Which I did again the other day. Ever learn? But they are so pretty....

*Topshop flippy dress
*Office boots
*Warehouse leather jacket
*Forever 21 patterned tights.

I also wore one of my new favourite lipsticks, faux by MAC

In other news, as I have reached 100 followers (yay!) I am doing a little giveaway. I really am grateful to anyone who reads my ramblings and little comments always make me smile, as does reading some of your posts. 

So, here is the giveaway loot: 

 A pair of exfoliating gloves (let's start with the exciting thing, right ;) 
A necklace with circular ceramic things on it.
A headband with a little bow on it
No7 Nail and Cuticle cream
A rainbow beanie (why not?)
Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in Ivory (equivalent to MAC NC20 I'd say)

* 2 nail polishes- 1 Natural Collection in Praline 
1 Stargazer in a dark purple colur

* B never too busy to be beautiful glitter dust

It comes all wrapped up and in this beautiful packaging

 (eek, chipped nail polish...ignore!)
It's a pot of lovely pink glittery glitter. Pop it over eyeshadow or over your body on a night out. I used to swipe glitter all over my face on a night out when I was younger! 

All packed away in a biscuit tin I got from Paris (sans biscuits now, sorry!) Feel a bit mean packing rainbow beanie away, so I have left him some 'breathing space' haha.
