Maybelline Define a Lash

Maybelline Define -a-Lash, i bought this mascara around 2 months ago and it certainly lives up to expectations. From the tube " Separated, Sensuously long lashes, no clumps.


Pros-It lengthens my already long lashes, if your looking for a mascara that thickens lashes also, then this is not for you. This mascara has the potential to look spidery on girls with thin lashes, but good news they have a volume version out!
Cons-The brush is weird to work with, its super bendy and the brush itself is awkward to use.

girls with thick lashes, should buy this, or girls with short lashes. Its a great mascara but i probably wont be buying again!

Used worse, used better! 4 out of 5 stars though.

Weekly Post

So darling readers, i apologise for the lack of updates but i had my reason. Poor little me was sick, i know sucks right! So i cant believe i missed watching Paris fashion week on daily as i have done for the last two years, it Sucks.......

- mental note: catch up with fashion week


So Homecoming is soon, and i guess you are all wondering what the heck to wear! But that's ok, there a plenty of great dresses around.


Nordstrom has some great dresses at the moment for Homecoming which are rather cheap surprisingly. If you don't like the b.p section, you must check the online sale!

This little dress is from nordstrom and i love the outer layer skirt which is unusual -Buy Here

I also love the colour of this dress, i think i would add crystals to the middle of the bow to add a bit of uniqueness to the dress.Buy Here

Today i fell in love..... With bobbi brown's exclusive nordstrom set: Sunset Gold. This set is like the ultimate perfect gift, for christmas or even a birthday.... Although I'd dump that lipgloss its just nasty..

I forgot to say, i need this set!

Currently craving......

Hey hey!

So this week i hope to buy some crystals ( light pink) to crystallize my ipod nano. Its going to look so good, i don't really like my silver colour so I'm going to liven it up a bit with baby pink crystals. It's a pain in the butt but it is so worth it in the end! i promise I'll post pics.

I'm loving O.P.I's Louvre Me Louvre Me Not, it is a fun pop of juicy grape color. It seems a fun winter colour! I am loving dark colours at the moment, a must have is Russian Navy by opi! pic courtesy of alllacqueredup

I also really want Mac's Naked Lunch eyeshadow! its such a cute neutral and could be worn in the day or spiced up at night! also its Selena Gomez's fave!

Birthday Wishlist

Its my birthday on the 8th of May and if my mom and dad are reading, which they are most likely to, wink wink, here is my ultimate list to celebrate my birthday. Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 ( available at ) This is no ordinary bag, its a classic, and something I will be able to use forever and of very high quality, trust me it will last through the years. This style Louis Vuitton has been made for years and is timeless. Pretty Please, this is the most fabulous bag and i know its expensive at £345 ( price increase last week, damn LV and their price increases) but remember i'll love it forever.

I did think about asking for a ipod or a TV but then i realised, that will diminish in price very soon and it will be busted in 2 year's time unlike the speedy.

Will and Grace season 1, without a shadow of doubt, will and grace is my favourite show and with it not being aired so much after sadly finishing. It never without fail makes me laugh and you can watch it over and over again.

Blueberry Mask from Urban Outfitters, mmm this sounds soo good! it will make my skin clearer, glowy and smell great! sounds like the perfect mask!

These Urban Outfitter tees
are simple basics which will look great in summer. The sunglasses are in the sale for £5!

Then as its coming up to summer, i need some summer make up! Mac- Honey lust eyeshadow, Underage Lipglass, nailvarnish topcoat. Clinique Almost makeup powder to go with my tinted moisturiser which is spf15!
If you buy these from nordies you will save a massive £20!!!

This is a my ultimate list so this will give you ideas for the clueless grannies and aunts which always ask you what i want! This is handy before i ended up with an ugly sheepskin hat ( i don't do hats!), wooden dinosaur puzzles and my sis ended up with a used ugly leather satchel which my grandma had in her closet for like 20 years!

Miss me?

Nope Couture gal isn't missing in action, she need a break due to personal problems. It's sorta sorted out but I'll survive. i can't believe i haven't posted since Saturday, i think i almost had withdrawals symptoms, Kidding! or am i?

With my birthday coming up in 2 weeks, and shockingly i haven't come up with list yet. I have a few ideas but i hope to do a proper post soon. I often get inspiration for blog posts while picking what to wear, listening to music but most of all while going for a walk. I think walking is the best way to come up with blog post ideas so walk with me and get the those blog ideas flowing.

It's late, my hair is a mess, I'm sad that I've just watched this weeks episode of gossip girl and i have to wait another week. It was the Blair's Sleepover episode and my my was it good.

anyway channelling gossip girl

couture girl xoxo, you know you love me

Costing a whopping $30 bucks for the nail varnish alone, discard that nail varnish and try opi or even drug store brands. my favourite ones come from drugstore ones ( UK - thats a chemist /boots)

My white tee is just too cool for you.

A white V neck tee should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe, it doesn't have to look sloppy or casual and it can transform into anything you want, except a treasure chest! leave that to the pirates to find.

T-shirts originate from Ancient Egyptian Times as part of their everyday clothes, and it wasnt until US soldiers in Europe during the World War 1 were rather taken with the light cotton undershirts the European soldiers wore under their garments that they started to become a top not underwear. I believe it was James Dean who made the T shirt and jeans combo very popular.

This outfit i made, could be worn by anyone and reminds me very much of blair outfit from gossip girl. Its perfect for going out to lunch.
This outfit could be worn to the park or on a day out shopping.

While i'm not going to argue with another blogger, i totally disagree with this post from Miss Couturable (

She states that " Thus, I'm against the addition of t-shirts to our dress code. I enjoy the creative ways that our student body has learned to work around the no-tees rule, and I feel that the rigorous academic ambiance is reduced when one is wearing a band tee instead of a cashmere v-neck sweater ".

T shirts are a basic staple in my wardrobe and i have many, printed, plain, long sleeved and Short sleeved. They can be dressed down and also up, infact a band tee could easily replace the white v neck i used in the outfits i made. I must give her claps for not wearing t shirts for over 3 years.

C.W sort of, Banoffee Pie

This weeks C.W isn't really a chocolate recipe, its has some chocolate but not much lol. Banoffee pie is one of my favourite puddings and here is the recipe my family have always used with a bit of a twist! Instead of digestives i used chocolate hobnobs for the biscuit base.
For the base:
100g (3½oz) butter melted
250g (9oz) digestive biscuits

For the caramel:
100g (3½oz) butter
100g (3½oz) dark brown soft sugar
397g can Carnation Condensed Milk
4 small bananas
284ml carton double cream, lightly whipped
cocoa powder, for dusting ( Hot chocolate powder in the UK)

You will also need:20cm (8”) loose-bottomed cake tin

Step 1: The base

To make the base, process the biscuits until like fine crumbs then tip into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter. Press the mixture into the base and 4cm (1½in) up the sides of the tin. Chill the base while you make the filling.

Step 2: The filling

Place the butter and sugar into a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, stirring until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Add the condensed milk and bring gently to the boil, stirring continuously to make the caramel. As soon as it thickens, remove from the heat. Spread the filling over the biscuit base, cool, and then leave to chill for about 1 hour, until firm.

Step 3: The topping
To serve, remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Slice the bananas; fold half of them into the softly whipped cream and spoon over the toffee base. Decorate with the remaining bananas and dust liberally with the cocoa ( UK hot chocolate powder)

This Pie is definitely not for diets! Its yummy but ever so slightly sickly! The recipe comes from nestle.
