Halloween Blood Drip Nails Tutorial

Getting into the old Halloween spirit with a Blood Drip Nails tutorial! This is super easy and quick to do! A Tip, I found it easier to actually use the other end of the toothpick ^_^

Did you see my halloween outfit I did for Missguided? I customised one of their dresses for my very own DIY halloween look! I'm going to wear this dress this weekend, have less scary makeup and wear my white out coloured contact lenses :D


What are you going as for Halloween?

Dr Martens Launch Party & Shoe Unboxing!

On the 2nd of October I was kindly invited to the grand opening of the largest Dr Martens store in the UK! Right where I live in Norwich! It was so lovely going to an event and not having to travel the 2 hours into London.

I went with the lovely Jacqueline and met the equally lovelies Helen & Jackie there. There was lots of music, a live band, a photobooth (which is actually in the store so if you visit you must get yourself snapped!) a stand to get your shoes polished, lots of free drinks and an amazing 50% off for those who attended the launch! As you can see from above we couldn't resist having our pictures taken ^_^ a must at any event I feel!

I was in love with so many shoes, they offer such a wide range of different styles and finishes to suit different tastes. Also lots of lovely clothes, accessories and beautiful bags. Seeing Dr Martens for children there too was the most adorable thing I've never seen!

Below you can watch my vlog of the launch night! And below that there's an unboxing of my Serena's I purchased on the night, where I also compare them against my original black Dr Martens.

Do you own any Dr Martens? If so what do you wear yours with? I've had a lot of people ask me, I feel they go with so much, and would love to hear your suggestions too!

 Floral Jumpsuit £29.99

Here's an exclusive look at some of the images from Missguided's new campaign ‘Hearts Bleed Glitter’ featuring the crazy beautiful Anja!

"Inky black walls, luxe carpets, and a dimly lit underground pool create the perfect backdrop for Missguided's new A/W13 campaign. In her second shoot for the brand, Anja K works a variety of looks including a religious print bomber with a caged bodysuit and medallion belt, fusing chic with urban cool.
The collection is rich in luxurious fur and feather jackets, chic tailored skorts and glamorous embellished sequin dresses, catering to the sultry side of the Missguided girl. Jumpsuits in crisp white and lace ooze sophisticated 70's glamour whilst lavish velvets in rich, lustrous colours paint an opulent picture of what’s to come this season at Missguided."

Which are your favourite items? I'm lusting after the floral jumpsuit and the Gabey Dress!

These gorgeous pieces of jewellery and sailor top are from the company Zara Taylor and as soon as I spotted they had turquoise items I just had to get them! Turquoise jewellery has really been a favourite for me this year and I'm slowly building a lovely collection!

It's not often I add earrings to my jewellery collection as a lot seem to irritate my skin, but these have hung on sterling silver ear wires so they don't cause me any troubles.

Their jewellery is also often worn by the likes of Fearne Cotton, Sarah Harding and is featured in a lot of magazines too!

Which pieces are your favourite?

Halloween with Missguided, vote for me!

Dress / c/o Missguided
Shoes / Loveclothing
Necklace / Topshop
Rings / c/o Shop Dixi

So Missguided contacted me asking if I would be up for doing a DIY halloween outfit using items from their sweet deal range. I jumped at the chance! I love halloween so much and was up for making something myself. I had so much fun doing this too! My neighbours must think I'm crazy!

I chose a maxi dress with the intention of cutting it up for some subtle revealing details. I've come a long way from my halloween outfits as a child. I used to be given a bin bag and told it was a witches costume ^_^ This dress is perfect for a gothic look and lets you add dramatic makeup and accessories without being too much. It's also only £7.50!

Go check out the other 4 bloggers looks, and if you like mine, make sure you vote for me by liking this picture on their Facebook page, you will also then have the chance of winning a halloween goodie bag! <3

Check out the super talented Emily who did my makeup too here.

Abandon Ship, Boys Don't Learn, Pink Hair!

Top / c/o Boys Don't Learn
Bikini Bottoms / c/o Triangl Swimwear



 Skirt / c/o Glamorous
Jewellery / c/o Black Tied
Shoes / Nelly

So you can tell these outfit pictures further down were from a little while ago as I now have pink hair! What do you think? I had pink hair last summer and loved it! This year as I sometimes wear extensions, I thought I would pink those up too so I could have mermaid hair ^_^

I love these tops from Abandon Ship and Boys Don't learn, they can be dressed up or down and are bit different to the usual printed top! Nice to wear some more Abandon Ship again, I own a few of their tees now and wanted to try out a vest. As their tops are unisex they fit over sized. I love how low the arm holes are for a subtle reveal.

How would you wear these tops?

Would you go a pastel hair colour?

Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane Unboxing & Comparison

(Above: Left shoe Jeffrey Campbell, Right shoe New Look)

I finally got my hands on the sort after Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes & thought it might be also worth comparing them against my New Look dupes.

When editing the video today I realised I didn't film them on, but I have done outfit posts featuring both shoes:

Coltrane outfit
New Look Boots outfit

Since this video I have worn these several times, with socks they are much easier to break in, bring plasters incase too! No rubbing with plasters at the ankles under socks I found :D

Coltranes c/o Loveclothing

New Look Boots are back online!

What I'm wearing:
Dress / Motel Rocks, Use code "leannelimwalker for 20% off at Motel Rocks http://motelrocks.com
Lipstick / Mac Russian red with lip balm underneath
Necklace / Delilah Dust
Rings / Wrap ring from Regal Rose, other ring a gift.

Dungarees / c/o Lavish Alice
Crop Top / Asos
Shoes / Zara
Earrings / c/o Black Tied
Gold Plated twisted midi rings / c/o Black Tied
Gold wrap around cross ring / c/o Black Tied

These dungarees are the comfiest thing, so silky soft! They have been the perfect thing for me to grab when I've no idea what to wear and need to rush off. If it's a bit nippy I can add a cardi on top or swap the crop top with a cropped jumper.

Also loving my new Black Tied jewels! Finally I have some perfect thumb rings and some amazing earrings. I'm now trying to build up pieces I don't have much of, like earrings and bracelets :)

I'm thinking about doing a styling dungarees video for my youtube channel as I have these, a dungaree dress and also some pastel denim tie dye short ones. Would anyone be interested in seeing that?
