I got a cold and a sore throat. In the middle of summer! I've taken some stuff (as well as lots of naps) and am feeling a bit better. Must get well by Saturday as we're going to the cinema to watch the new Planet of the Apes. Oh, by the way I tried berry tea for the first time and it's amazing, really delicious!

ASOS Sale Picks

ASOS sale clearance 70% off
My favourites from the ASOS sale. As you can see I have some sort of a fashion identity crisis - on one side I like minimalist and masculine inspired pieces and on the other there's the more feminine shapes and even pastel colours.

ASOS Olive Mac: Love the way it drapes (watch the catwalk video!)
Olivia Burton Coral Watch: Minimalist design with a pop of colour, what's not to like?
Marc Jacobs Mint Watch: There's also a black version but this one is great for summer.
New Look Pink Coat: I got this coat months ago full price and now it's over 50% off.
Ri2k Leather Bag: Such a classic shape, and it reminds me of the Hermes Birkin Bag (dupe alert)
ASOS T-Bar Shoes: A modern take on the T-bar shoes.
Steve Madden Flats: A more feminine flat shoe with ankle strap.
Lulu Guinness Makeup Bag: A cute little bag to keep your essentials in.

Cute Purple Homecoming Dresses 2014 at DressV

With homecoming parties and graduations going on, it's easy to get a bit stressed when thinking what to wear to the celebration party, as it is such a special occasion and you want to look your best for every picture.

At DressV they specialize in party and wedding dresses, so you can be sure you will find something to suit your style. This season they have lots of cute purple homecoming dresses in different shades and I'm going to share with you my personal favourites.

Pastels are so on trend and this lilac coloured dress on the left is so sweet and pretty. The vertical ruching detail on the bust area gives you more volume, while the contrasting panel exalts the waist, making it look smaller. Also the belt adds some more appeal with the sparkling jewels and sequins decoration, giving the appearance of an abstract glamorous belt and eliminating the need for lots more accessories. As you can see, this dress will help you achieve a very feminine hourglass look with the sweetheart neckline, belt and volume on the skirt, which is why I like it so much.

If pastels are not your thing, fear not as DressV has you covered. For the girl that prefers something that little bit different, this spectacular purple colour sheath dress will make you look regal as you party the night away. Featuring a slightly longer length than the previous dress, it will make you look slimmer and taller. It doesn't have the high shine satin finish or sparkly details of the previous dress, but instead offers a distinctive asymmetrical shape that is sure to get some attention. The pleats add structure and volume, but only on the right places, as this dress also has a small band under the bust to keep the shape from looking frumpy and shows off your waist instead.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Last year I decided it was about time to give one of these so called lip crayons a try, and went for the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey after swatching it in the shop. 

Revlon's Balm Stains claim to be a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lip stain in an adorable chubby crayon that gives you softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of colour that lasts hour after hour.

The packaging is really cute and sturdy, and I like how the colour matches the product inside, though the writing wears off with time. 

The first time I actually applied Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey on my lips, I noticed how the colour turned into a bright pink on my lips, which left me disappointed as I was looking for a natural colour. 

After that I gave it a couple more tries with the same result, so I put it away and tried it again this summer. I've come to terms with the colour and I like that lips feel moisturised after application. The product smells of mint and leaves a tingling sensation on the lips that goes away after a few minutes. The tint does last but obviously fades throughout the day. 

One thing that caught my attention is that about only 1/2 of the crayon is filled with product, which is also a bit disappointing as the packaging could be made smaller and easier to carry around, or could contain more product inside.

It's an OK product that I will keep using but I don't think I would repurchase as the colour wasn't true and there are alternatives that offer SPF as well.

Find Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey on Superdrug (on offer 2 x £10) and Boots (buy 1 get 1/2 off)
