If you are not very careful your possessions will possess you...



Current loves:

001: OPI. I know it's dirt cheap in the US and we get charged a fortune for it over here, but it's the only nail varnish that stays even remotely chip free for more than ten minutes. I am scrappy. My nails reflect this. That lovely green one is my newest addition. It's 'Who the Shrek Are you?'

002: The September issues and all things lace, nude and pastel. I am ready for Autumn. Thick over knee socks, big stompy boots, beanie hats, lots of lace. Done.

003: My sale purchases from Topshop. Cannot wait to layer these.

004: Shoes of love. I lusted after them for months. I mentioned them in this post and finally (finally!) they made their way into the ASOS sale. With an extra 10% discount code I eventually got them for less than half price. They're really comfortable too, despite appearances.

005: Sequins. I am a magpie. I cannot get enough shiny items of clothing into my life. Primark, Rodarte for Target and Topshop. Yum.

Oh, I got an OPI manicure before the wedding! You'd be amazed how much of it is still remaining, given that I am possibly even more scrappy...

Your birthday's coming soon. Maybe this Crazy Yank will take some special requests for colors of nail polish to send you. =)

Love it all!!!

I hate that things that are cheap in the states are expensive here. remember before Maybelline came over here they used to go on in magazines about Great Lash Mascara being 4 dollars over there - then it came here and was about six quid??? Grrr.

I've never used OPI before-- and I live in the states. Looks like we know what I'll be buying tomorrow. :)

I didn't know that cosmetics and other things were more expensive in Britain than in the States (I live in New Jersey). That's annoying! But I must agree that OPI polish is the best when it comes to staying power. I love your choice in Who the Shrek are You?, both in shade and moniker.

LYG - I challenge you to a scrap off! I can chip nails just by sitting still. Haha.

Chamuca - It's not till November but this Crazy Brit would LOVE that!

P - I do remember that! And I remember being annoyed about it! I am going to rape the make up counters of NYC in 5 weeks time.

Amber Rose - Ooh you need some! It's amazing! And so many pretty colours!

TTT - A lot of things are the same price in pounds as they are in dollars! $15 = £15. Horrific!

Ooh I'm loving your current loves :)

My sister has just got that same green nail varnish as you - she got me the 'Rimples Wiggin' one at the same time, which I believe is also part of the Shrek range..

Those shoes are seriously gorgeous - not surprised you couldn't resist them at less than half price, well done!
