J's Sofa Sale Shizz!

Now, I am a lazy girl at heart, and if I can do something without moving, then I will. So I didn't, and I shopped the sales online this year, here is my swag!

I was lucky enough to get in early and grab this Bear Hat from Very, at a very reasonable £5! It says 'Bear' but I think it looks more like a tiger, and as I haven't seen a tiger version on the high street it was begging to come to me!

I was also very lucky to get a super early VIP slot for the NEXT sale, where I picked up a few things I wanted at full price - the boots were £30 reduced from £70, and the amazing jewellery capelet was £10 reduced from £20 - hurrah!

These boots, I actually blogged about in July, but at £70, I just couldn't bring myself to do it, but at £30? HELLZ YEAH!

This hot piece of armour I figured would really dress up my fave Wildfox tees for those parties where a full on party look is too much, but you feel you need more than just skinnies and a tee - and I was right, it looks hot! Even if it does inspire a whole new posture just to keep it on straight!

Finally, I picked up these cool white feather earrings from Toppers, reduced to £7 from £14, for my NYE 20's theme ball. They are HUGE, and so luxe!

So did anyone else get any cool bargains? I know T did!

J - no 5am starts for me ;)

Lovestruck - Pretty knits are RAWR hits!

No comments

I recently got my paws on 2 gorgeous cardy's from www.lovestruckclothing.co.uk, there's nothing nicer than a sweet knit in the winter and I just love these pretty babies!

The Katrina Cardigan and the Lucy Cardigan both drew my eye because of the details in the embellishments, the pearls and rhinestones discreetly pop against the muted colours making them SO wearable for everyday, without making you feel overdressed just because you have a bit of sparkle ;) These knits are super soft, just right for wearing over light tees and lightweight dresses and I'd say the sizing is spot on. I got M/L (as a UK 12) and they fit perfectly.

Perfect for girly girls, and those of us who like a bit of ladylike chic every now and again!

There's a sale on at Lovestruck right now, and as well as their yummy own brand knits and dresses, they also stock RAWR faves Iron Fist , Motel and Irregular Choice, amongst others so go see!

J - not just starstruck, lovestruck too!

Review - Clynol Powder Punch - WOW!


So, I recently marched into Toni & Guy, photo of Frankie Sandford on my iPod Touch in hand, and instructed my stylist god, John, to hit me up. Before I knew it, my waist length mane was whipped into shape and I LOVED it! I got home and started showing off my new do, when a friend (who herself has the most amazing short cut) said I needed to get myself a little pot of Clynol Powder Punch, and Google directed me to www.feelunique.com where it currently retails at an extremely reasonable £8.25 for a 50 ml pot.

The powder itself is so lightweight it feels like a little pot of nothingness but don't be fooled, the content is a hair miracle! Prior to blowdrying, I applied just my usual volume spray, thinking it best to test Powder Punch out by itself as much as possible, and dried as usual with a round brush. This is what I get, I do have naturally thick hair so it may already look quite full, but this was taken shortly after blowdrying, and it's weight also means that nothing keeps it up once that initial blowdry wonder wears off!

I then tapped out a teeny bit of Powder Punch into my palm, gently pressed my palms together (you WILL lose it all to a mini atom bomb if you go in with a clap or a rub!) and simply worked my hands into my hair. You can immediately feel your hair thicken but it doesn't harden, instead you can work and play with your hair until you are happy. Powder Punch produces an invisible matte texture so your hair just looks like it has this awesome volume and shape, but without all the gunky product issues you can often get achieving a style like this. PP is also happy to help you flatten as it is to help you foof. The right side, and the back, of my hair needs to be flat in order to make the funky left side pop, and I found that the product was just as effective on my business side as it was on my party side, helping me to smooth and flatten but without the greasy look that my usual products can bring to that area!

When I'd finished creating my look, a light spritz of hairspray sealed the deal and I was ready to go. It literally took less than 5 minutes, and I don't even think I needed the hairspray but I was so impressed with the look I didn't want to risk it!

I needn't have worried though, my style lasted all day, and I loved the fact that I could still rework volume into my roots through the day with a casual scrunch without reapplying, although the pot is tiny enough to carry in the smallest of bags on a night out ;) As the cherry on top, Clynol Powder Punch washes out easily with one shampoo, which is impressive for a product with such staying power. Overall, I am super impressed with my little pot of fun, it's definitely going to be a styling shelf staple from now on. I would even go as far as to say that it quite casually makes my volume spray, salt spray and wax completely redundant!

I still insist on using my hairspray to finish with, only now I have more confidence in it because I know my little hair hero is underneath! Take 3 products onto your dressing table? Not me, I just Powder Punch... and GO!

J - A converted Clynol fan.

NEWSFLASH! Wake up & smell the roses- this dress is HAWT!

Sunday 5 December 2010

No comments
Oh em gee. Little Rawrers, let me introduce you to the hawtest little dress around right now:

Ouch. All Charley 5.0 denim is EXTREMELY flattering as it is, but this strapless number looks like it has some serious shape wear qualities.

We first spotted this dress in the Charley 5.0 Holiday Lookbook. We absolutely LOVE how it's styled in this picture. Completely BADASS but still super pretty!

A great view from the back too, this Smell The Roses dress fits like a glove. We imagine that the girls with some junk in the trunk, will be FIGHTING the boys off while wearing this!

The model is clearly loving it as much as we are! She looks so confident & who can blame her? She looks utterly fierce. We're just waiting to see which celebrity gets snapped wearing it first...My money's on Rihanna!

These beautiful organza flowers were made by head designer Yalenis herself & we have it on good authority that this is actually one of her FAVOURITE pieces!

"Where can I buy it?" you ask...

CHARLEY 5.0, Smell the Roses Dress, $228- Shopbop.

So you're in love with it too, right!? It's PERFECT for the party season. As a self-confessed denim junkie, I'm definitely up for ditching my jeans if it means I can slip into this little number & have the best of both worlds ;)

Angel's you've done it again! WE LOVE! T <3 XoX
