I had been contemplating buying a pair of American Apparel disco pants for a little while (who hasn’t) but aside from the price (a whopping £70) I couldn’t quite decide on a colour. I was torn between black, midnight blue & charcoal. I eventually came to the realisation that spending 70 squids on a pair of trousers was a little steep, especially if I ended up buying the wrong colour, so I went looking for alternatives. Oh hai again ebay! After Ashleigh tweeted that she had bought a pair & that she loved them, I couldn’t resist, I had to try them out for myself.

To start, they come in an array of different colours, I ended up choosing ‘blue grey’ & I’m so glad I did, they are such a lovely colour! They are a very similar material to the AA ones however they don’t have a button fastening & they aren’t as high waisted as actual disco pants but with a cleverly placed belt, that problem is solved. Now for the best news, these babies cost less than £7 & postage was free! I deffo need more of these in my life! I have my eyes on the red & navy blue ones next.

What do you think? Great value, eigh? ;)

SweetPea & fay: Lip glosses…

SHEER LIPGLOSS, Sheer red: Pixie Blood*
(All lip glosses are photographed in natural light without the flash & are worn over my natural lip colour.)
‘’Congo Kick has a mod like feel to it like it’s straight out of the sixties, it looks very orange in the tube but goes on much softer in colour.’’
SAILORS DELIGHT, ULTRA PIGMENTED LIPGLOSS: ‘’Sailors Delight is a pin up inspired, super pigmented hot pink lip gloss. Adds shine & hydration to lips & is long lasting’.’’
PIXIE BLOOD, SHEER LIPGLOSS: ‘’Pixie Blood is super girly & can be worn sheer or built up for a flirty look.’’

WHAT I THINK: First things first, I love the names of all three lip glosses! I always think its fab when a company/brand name their products well rather than just using numbers or plain old colours. I just think it shows that little bit of extra effort has been put into making & branding the products. Also, all SweetPea & Fay lip glosses retail at approx £3.80 which I think is a total steal! :)

My favourite of the three has to be ‘Sailors Delight’ because of it’s candy pink colour & it’s fab pigmentation! As well as being pretty moisturising & fairly long lasting, it really does live up to it’s name as an ‘ultra pigmented lip gloss’ as, like the liquid lipsticks, I have hardly needed to use any product to get a great colour pay off & a completely opaque look.  I have pretty much been reaching for this lip gloss every time I have felt like adding a pop of colour to my lips, I am a sucker for pink, ahaahha.

Congo Kick’ has become one of my makeup bag staples recently too. You may have noticed, I wear nude/neutral lips quite often & we all know, there is nothing worse than when it looks like you have just slapped a load of concealer on your smackers. (fyi, I have nothing against wearing concealer on lips, I do it daily, I just hate the ‘flakey ghost lips’ look) So after I apply my concealer/nude lipstick, I have been applying ‘Congo Kick’ over the top to give it a glossy sheen. The orange tinge in it makes my lips look alive even though they are still nicely neutral. It’s not as opaque as ‘Sailors Delight’ once it’s on the lips & is alot lighter than the colour in the tube, but it is definitely buildable & not sticky at all.

I feel like such a douche when I wear red lips during the day, I don’t know why, I have no problems with any other colours, I could probably go out wearing bright green lipstick & not be bothered, but there is just something about the colour red that scares me a little. (Does anyone else feel like this?)  But I have actually been confident enough to wear ‘Pixie Blood’ out & about. Yes, I know it’s not exactly the brightest red (hence the name, sheer lip gloss) but it’s red enough for me to wear during the daytime without feeling paranoid that people are constantly staring at my lips. Ahaha O.O It’s a sheer gloss with gold reflex & it gave a nice hint of colour & shine to my lips without being too bright. It just made my lips look a healthy colour & didn’t dry them out at all.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? So what do you think? Which is your favourite? What do you think of the names of the lip glosses? Do you like bright opaque lip glosses or do you prefer lip glosses with just a hint of colour?

T-shirt: Primark
Turquoise baroque leggings: ebay
Bag: Zara
Sunglasses: ebay
Shoes: Tophsop

I have been lusting after the Motel Jordan Baroque jeans ever since I first saw them while I was doing one of my usual internet shopping browsing sessions a few weeks ago, they really are so lovely but I just don’t have that kind of money to spend on a pair of jeans that are so bold. (wah) I decided to see what ebay had to offer & came across an abundance of baroque print garments including these leggings! They were less than a tenner & they come in all sorts of colours, pink & blue being the main, I am so tempted to grab myself a pair of orange ones too, for summer, I think they are fab! They are a little jazzier than anything I would usually go for but there is just something about this so called Baroque print that really draws me in. What do you think? Too jazzy? O.O Ahaha
