daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: currently coveting, SS12, on the high street, kate spade, shopping


Currently in the full swing of my spending ban, so of course I'm spending (in the other sense of the word, I promise!) my evenings trawling websites for things I wish I was buying. I'm seriously lusting after this heart cut-out shirt from Topshop, even though I already know the quality of it will be questionable at best. I love a good heart print or slightly strange cut-out, so this ticks all of the boxes except quality for me. In a similar vein, I also adore the bralet version of the shorts I posted about a week or two ago. So. Darn. Cute.

The sudden welcoming of summer has left me longing for even more skincare. After hearing Kate and Anna rave about REN skincare recently, I'm dying to get my hands on this Smoothing Renew Mask to detox my skin from the daily commutes to and from my internship. I've been sampling Caudalie's SOS Thirst-Quenching Serum, as provided in my Glossybox May, and absolutely love using it twice daily.

Oh life, why must you tease me so?! What are you all coveting at the moment?

    1. Thanks Amy! Models Own are better for glitter polishes, think Essie is more for the creamy and metallic finishes (:
