I think this look is ideal for heading to a game- either with friends or on a date. I had to choose Red Sox as an example (When in Boston...) The ballet flats, earring and printed bag cuten the outfit and the Sox memorabilia from VS are really girly too!

US Haul!

I may or may not have picked up a few purchases over here, but I promise- they're either things that cannot be found in Ireland or are super wonderful bargains!

 This bag was €225 when I saw it in BT. I was at a Guess store over here, spotted this for $70, and decided to buy it, went to the register for the cashier to tell me it had been reduced again to $45! That's about €35, so I've pretty much saved €200! Bargain, eh?

I've spent and inordinate amount of time at Victoria's Secret since I've arrived here (and conversationally I have an interview with them this week too!) buying underwear, clothes and make up. Obviously I'm not going to show the panties I bought, but I've discovered their makeup and I'll do a more in depth review on it soon. I'm loving their tinted moisturiser- especially as it's so hot here, it becomes difficult to wear makeup without it evaporating in the heat. They also have some cool eye shadow shades (I love "Between the Sheets")

You also might be able to see my teeth are a little whiter- I succumbed to the trend and bought Crest Whitestrips. Best. Decision. Ever. I'll be doing a raving review soon!

I've also picked up some jeans and stuff here, but it's laundry day tomorrow and they're not in much state to be photographed just yet, so when they're clean again I'll post some photos.

Give thanks for all you've got.
Love Laura

Flavour of the Month- May

Clothes- My "Mclovin" tee from Topman, it took a lot of time and commitment to find it! Though I am loving my new roll up super skinnies from American Eagle.

Trend- Neon. I love neon! Provided it's done tastefully. And neon yellows make you look more tanned!

Jewelry- My steal of a torque necklace from Penneys. Only €3 and it's super cute.

Beauty- VS Pro Radiant FX Face Illuminator. Love love love.

Hair- My updated colour! The base has been changed to a blonder tint and I've had some white through to kill the brass. I look Scandinavian (I wish)! Delighted!

Body- Vita Liberata Rich Silken Chocolate Body in Dark. I look delightfully bronzed! I got this at Boots on promotion. It's quite expensive normally, but well worth it! The tan lasts long, comes off much more evenly than most others and is a deep colour, but very natural and no smell!!

Book- Franz Kafka, The Complete Stories. Kafka's writing is brilliant, but if you're new to him, I think reading his newer stuff before his older works is advisable, his first few stories are very fragmented and you won't appreciate them until you've read the rest (not necessarily connected to one another, but you'll develop a taste for them better this way!)

Movie- Oooft, going to have to go with "All Good Things" for a few reasons; a. It's the Goz, of course I'll watch it! b. The story is dark and interesting, the plot is fabulously real. c. It portrays the Goz as a more serious actor than the media lead him on to be, and Kirsten Dunst makes a wonderful addition to the scenes too!

Music- Alt J- Breezeblocks. Wow.

Person- A person I know who has recently died of cancer, I'll keep her name disclosed, but she was such a trooper up until the end, and she was so young. I'm so hurt to hear of the news.

TV- Ahh, been recently introduced to Game of Thrones. Pretty fantastic!

Blogging from across the pond!

I know I've been AWOL at the moment, and getting internet has proved painful to get without having a home. But now I've got a house and Wifi, so I'll be back up and running soon!

Lots of love from Boston,
Laura xx
