ASOS Sale Top Picks

The past 2 days I've been seeing a lot of people going mad about ASOS's current sale, I am a wee bit poor at the moment so decided to play a game with myself. If I could pick one thing out of each category what would it be?! So here's my top picks...


This beautiful coat is from a brand called Darling. As soon as I saw it I was like WOW! Its such a pretty pattern and I think if I was to wear it I would definitely feel a little bit like Kate Middleton or at least feel I should be going to Ascot or something posh! I first came across the brand Darling in a shop in Cheltenham (which is where I go to uni btw folks!) and it is a little bit on the pricey side. However you can always get a good bargain in the asks sale and I've also noticed quite a few of their items in T K Maxx!


I love these Steve Madden shoes! I've been looking for a cute pair of shoe boots like this for ages and definitely found the pair I want! The fringe detail is perfect and right on trend at the moment. And with them being wedges it makes them easier to walk in. Bonus!


I'm definitely not great when it comes to handbags. I usually use the same one for about 6 months (or until I trash it) and then buy a new one and never use the old one again! This is a habit I am trying so hard to get out of. I want to build up my handbag collection with lots of new styles and colours and I think this bag definitely fits the bill. This ALDO bag is beautiful and eye catching and would spruce up any dull outfit. 


Last but by no means least beauty! My favourite! Theres not an awful lot of make-up in the ASOS sale but I did find some items form a brand I've been meaning to try out. Pixi recently came out with a line inspired by Tinkerbell from Peter Pan. This highlighter, or fairy dust as they call it, is designed to give a glowing, luminous finish to anyones make-up.

L'oreal Glam Shine Miss Candy

I recently tweeted about Superdrug having a 3 for 2 offer on all their products and decided to indulge in a few more lip products (as of I didn't have enough but shhh I won't tell if you don't!)

The latest addition to L'oreals lipglosses are the Miss Candy glosses. They are two tone lip glosses that mix well to create a beautiful colour with their 'swirl technology'. I purchased 2 of the 6 available in the colours 'Bubble Pink' and 'Miss Candy'. Bubble Pink is a lovely everyday coral colour which blends in well with your natural lip colour whereas Miss Candy is a clear sparkly colour (despite looking lilac in the bottle) which gives any matte lipstick a new lease of life with a sparkly finish. 

As non of the other colour took my fancy I decided to try one of the caress lipsticks in the shade 'Cheeky Magenta'. As you can see in the picture below (although a little dark, sorry!) its a bright fushia colour which a gorgeous shine. I find this lipstick to be long lasting and really moistures my lips at the same time. Bonus!

All these products are available to buy from Superdrug and Boots. The Miss Candy glosses are £7.65 and the Caresse lipsticks are £7.99
