 I love Zooey and can't wait to watch New Girl every Friday. Zooey's character Jess has a really cool sense of style. To dress like Jess think retro, quirky, polka dots and geek-chic!

 I love the Hunger Games Trilogy. After a nightmare dealing with my copies of the books when I ordered them I finally managed to read them all a while ago and now I can't wait to see the film! I've created some HG related collages that are inspired by the books/ film; the first is about Katniss- The Girl on Fire, and the second one is inspired by District 4- The Fishing District. Hope you enjoyed them!

 Spring has sprung and the warmer weather is making me feel like my clothes need to be brighter! I'm loving the map print and shades such as lime green and peachy corals at the moment. Hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration.

What I've Been Up To

 Just in case you're interested in my daily life then here's a little update. I've been taking my puppy Darcy to training classes and it's been loads of fun watching her play with the other puppies, usually she gets as much sleep as she can. She's a Bearded Collie and almost 5 months old, here she is sleeping on the sofa (naughty!) and on my slipper:

 I've also been swamped with uni work, making a Commonplace Book for Shakespeare studies and writing a 3000 word essay about Hardy. When I was writing my essay I found a little scribble in the back of a library book that I couldn't help agreeing with in the midst of essay stress:

 I spent a lovely weekend with my boyfriend when he came home from uni for a visit and we played the Angry Birds board game (which turned me into an angry bird), Scrabble and I ended up buying american candy like Twizzlers from an old fashioned sweet shop: 

 I've also been buying a few things so I'll do a little shopping haul post soon if you're interested in seeing what I've purchased. I read The Hunger Games Trilogy not too long ago and I can't wait to see it come to life when the film comes out soon, let me know if you're looking forward to the film like me!

GlossyBox March 2012 'The Harrods Edition'

 My Harrods box arrived and after all of the hype (the mystery, the clues!) I was a little bit disappointed but if I pretend that this is a regular box then it has some really amazing samples!

 I received a generous sample size of Versace's Eau De Parfum called Vanitas Versace in a beautiful bottle. It smells fresh and elegant if that's even possible! It has notes of tiare flower, lime and freesia. I probably wouldn't buy the full size bottle as I don't wear perfume that often but it would make a perfect gift for mother's day.

 I also received some body products. The Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter smells amazing, it reminds me of my holiday to Italy when I would drink blood orange juice for breakfast every morning outside in the sunshine. It's a really good sample size and the product is very moisturising, the only problem is the lid as it is hard to open, especially if you've got long nails. 

The Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream is supposed to 'restore the skin's youthful density and elasticity' and at the ripe old age of 20 I hope my skin is still youthful, although I'll be 21 soon so I might start using this in a couple of months time when my skin rapidly transforms into something resembling a prune. 

 The Lancôme Juicy Tubes Toffee R'N'B 93 lipgloss smells so divine I could eat it. It's not sticky and it's hydrating. With a slight shimmer it looks lovely too, the only downside is that this sample isn't a shade that I'd usually go for.

 The Révive Intensité Crème Lustre with SPF30 is an 'intense, firming moisturizer that helps to reduce the appearance of sagging skin'. It smelt slightly fruity to me but the scent is minimal and pleasant which is what I like in a facial moisturiser. The sample is 7 ml and the 60 ml full size product is worth £235! For that price I expect very amazing things from this product and as I won't ever be paying that much for a moisturiser I'll be keeping this for moments that I really need to look my best.

 I really wanted to try the Ojon oil or the Burberry lipstick but I don't think the shades would've suited me anyway and overall I'm happy with my 'mystery' box! What's the most amount of money you would or have payed for a beauty product, and was it worth it?

Lauren Loves ♥: Harrods + GlossyBox = a winning combination!
