H&M Autumn/Winter '13 Picks

H&M A/W 13 collection advert

H&M has upped its game! Okay, I am biased as I work there but seriously, they have!
The Autumn/Winter range has just hit our stores and I love it, the main reason is that most of  it is black, my inner goth is loving it.
As you can see from the promo images, the look is based on textures, they've included leather, suede, chiffon and embroidery to create a vampy look for autumn.

Here are my picks from the collection:

This is my favourite piece from their A/W collection. The sheer panelling makes a sexy statement. Just need a statement clutch and some heels.

I already have this handbag, it's the perfect size for an everyday bag. The fringe reminds me of boho chic.

I can't believe this top is £7.99, I'm gunna have to purchase it! I think I'd team it with a black pair of skinnies or leather trousers.

With winter slowly on its way, I'm keeping my eye out for winter coats. I think capes look so chic with leather boots and skinny jeans.

I don't often wear hats, but this one reminds me of something Kate Moss would wear. If it's good enough for Kate, I need one!

Do you like H&M's new collection?

Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz Review

Buying on a whim is not the way of a beauty blogger. Most of us research products, searching for swatches and reviews, before parting with our cash. I bought this Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz on a whim, as it was half price in Boots. I've never really used toner before, but this was an attempt to look after my skin more.

I used this as part of my daily face care routine. I used my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, then spritzed this Rosewater Toning product and finally used my La Roche-Posay Effaclar M to moisturise.
It has a good spray from the pump, it's a light cooling mist that is applied to just cleansed skin. It's quiet refreshing and smells nice but this did nothing to help my skin, I might as well of not used it. 

I even think this spray caused a series of cystic spots under my skin, which since I have stopped using this, have disappeared.

Fine mist
Cooling Effect

Caused cystic spots
Didn't improve my skin or 'tone'

I think beauty bloggers should use with caution, give it 2-3 weeks trial and error. My skin is acne prone, an ingredient in this could have triggered the spots. I think this would be more suited to 'normal' skin.

Have you tried this toner?

Lust List: Missguided

Missguided are doing it right - affordable and on trend. If you are a blogger you can't avoid Missguided, with excellent advertising campaigns and famous bloggers styling up their products, they have me lusting after so much!

001. Luisyn Paisley Bardot Long Sleeve Mini Dress - £14.99
I have a deep love for paisley. This blue number would be a different take on a party dress, I usually stick to an LBD, but I love the off the shoulder detail. Gimme!

002. Anaysa Strappy Bralet - £9.99
The beautiful Kavita, from 'She Wears Fashion', wore this bralet in a recent Instagram post, she looked incredible, therefore I must have it!

003. Dotty Contrast Oversized T-Shirt Dress - £14.99
This baseball shirt style dress would look amazing with just a pair of converse and a grungey make-up look.

004. Sandira Paisley Waterfall Kimono - £19.99
I am obsessed with kimonos at the moment. I'm not the biggest fan of my arms, I'm working at it in the gym, but for now I use kimonos to flatter my bingo wings.

What do you think of Missguided?
