Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week

YSL Black Opium perfume | Wearing Urban Decay ammo palette (yes, eyeshadows make me happy!) | Me & Leah taking pictures haha | Leah's Birthday shoes from Topshop | More nail art | Heidi cuddles | My ASOS shoes for my birthday!

Hey, everyone! We hope you all had a great week :) This week started with our older sister coming home from holiday. She gave me and Leah YSL's Black Opium perfume as a present and I can honestly say this is one of my favourite perfumes ever! We've got a review coming up later this week on it.

We've been shopping for our new birthday shoes and the minute we saw Leah's shoes in Topshop, she knew she had to have them and can you blame her?! They're gorgeous! My shoes are from ASOS and I think they're going to be great to wear during the summer.

We're both so excited for next Thursday (22nd January) because we're seeing Slipknot and Korn in concert. They're two of our all time favourite bands ever so if we don't blog from Friday onwards it means we've died from fangirling too hard, haha! 

So this week has included many cuddles from Heidi, new shoes, more nail art and me and Leah messing around taking pictures :) How has your week been?
Love Rachel & Leah, x

  4. Love both those shoes, cool nail art and Heidi looks so cute in that picture :)
    My week has been good but tiring from work!
    I used to listen to Slipknot before, favourite song I think is 'Before I Forget' but I haven't heard it in years
    I hope you girls have a lot of fun :) x
