Mini haul: Zara Skirt with Sash Belt and White, Open Neck Shirt

Why, oh, why do I have to spot all mouth watering clothing items when my salary hasn’t come in yet? Is it the universe telling me something? Is it some sort of divine conspiracy? 😂 And then, as it happens, I get worried that my local store will run out of my size or even sell out!! How strong can a woman be?

Somehow I can’t sleep tonight (I blame it on the ice cream), so I thought I’d write a bit as I relax on our hotel balcony. It’s warm, breezy and quiet after all, so writing would be a pleasure. As would be talking about the new Chanel Ombre Premiere eyeshadows. Have you guys checked them out? I’ve put some of them to the test since they launched in the UK and here go my thoughts.
