Friday Favs #3

Happy Friday, everyone.  I hope you're all well and looking forward to the weekend.
This week I have been loving so many bits I just had to share them;

First up the polkadot dress & fringe bag.  Now I've mentioned this fringe bag in a previous wishlist but George @ ASDA really are just kncking their affordable fashion out of the park for me right now.  I bought this black fringe bag a few weeks ago and it's the perfect addition to a casual outfit, the perfect size for a night out AND apparently is spot on trend night now.  I love it and for £10 I recommend you all go buy one right now!  The polkadot dress was £10 but is now down to £5 in the sale.  Stock was running low on my last check though so if you are into such things, I'd recommend buying it ASAP.  I had the very same dress from NEXT last year and it cost £28.  The ASDA version washes better and looks exactly the same.  I wear this to work with a wide red belt and red lipstick for a slightly vintage feel.

YSL Parisienne has been my go to perfume for over 5 years now, I tend to buy it when it's on offer as it can be quite pricey but it's just so fresh, fruity slightly floral.  It'd long lasting and I love wearing it this time of year.  If you ever get the chance, give it a good sniff, it's lush.

As always, I've been loving baths but I've found myself reaching for the I Love...Mango & Papaya body wash/ bubble bath more and more recently as it's just so summery.  It's super cheap - I think I got this from Boots for something silly like £2.99.  It's definitely a rival for any LUSH shower gel.

I've also been loving the Montagne Jeunesse face masks, as always - who doesn't like these?!  I'm not really a fan of the peel off masks as I tend to pull out my eyebrow hairs with those ones but I'm all about the clay masks and anything to help my skin is a treat.  Lovely.

Over the last few weeks I have managed to watch Pitch Perfect 2 THREE times and I bought the soundtrack for my car.  I bought a CD!!  Seriously I don't think I'd bought a CD in over 5 years before this one.  It's certainly not going to do my extreme metal cred any favours and I don't care one little bit.  I know Pitch Perfect can be a bit hit and miss for some people but personally for me it's a HUGE hit.  Hilarious.  If you've not seen it, grab your best girlfriends, a bucket of popcorn the size of your head, some clean pants and go, go watch it and laugh your butt off.

The Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in "not an illusion" was another Poundshop bargain - it's been ideal for wearing to the office this week.  These are super hydrating and last well throughout the day.  So easy to apply as they are just chubby crayons.

Staying with bargains, the wonderful ebay contour brush was just too good not to buy.  For £0.99p I just had to buy this.  I don't use it for contouring as I don't contour but I use it for blush and I just love it.  I recommend this to everyone.

And last but most certainly NOT least, this gorgeous copper light fixture is just dreamy.  I've been redoing our guest room at home and this is possibly the finishing piece for the room.  I've yet to put it up but hopefully once I do, I'll do a bit of a room tour, it's worked out to be the nicest room in our house and it never gets used.  I really should've got one for my own bedroom.  Go figure.
