lips: MAC viva glam nicki (review here)

Im in love with my new skeleton cut out shoulder t-shirt that I got from Topshop a few days ago. Not only is it the cheapest thing I've bought from Topshop in years (£14!!) its just super cute and perfect for the summer. Despite the fact Im still trying to fight the fact all I seem to wear is grey, white and black, I'm trying to branch out into patterns... even if they white and grey ones! I just paired it with a plain skater and my much loved Primark jacket! I preferred it un-tucked to the way it looked tucked into the skirt for some reason, I just think it looked a bit nicer! I've re-listed my pleated pleather skirt as the person who bid on it didn't pay, I knew £40 was too good to be true! Any bids with 0 feedback will be removed as I actually do want to get rid of it, so no time wasters please! And to clarify (as I've been asked alot!), I have two, the one Im selling is a size 12 which is too big for me! I will in time be adding more stuff to my ebay, so I'll make sure I keep you all posted (:

  26. If you adjust your buyer requirements on eBay you can block people who are unlikely to pay (if they don't have a PayPal linked to their account or if they have unpaid item strikes) and it can save so much hassle :)
