River Island Cut Out Boots

I have been craving a pair of cut out boots for at least six months now. These started popping up a long time ago but I could never find a pair with the right heel height, correct account of chunkyness and a price tag I was willing to pay. I had my eye on a few pairs at Office but didn’t fully love any of them and just couldn’t commit nearly £100 to a pair when I wasn’t sure how much wear I would get out of them! Then I spotted these beauties in River Island.

I snapped them up in the shop the day after I spotted them online. For me, these are my ideal cut out boots. The heel is nice and small which is ideal for someone like me that resembles a giraffe at the best of times. They aren’t overly chunky but still have that cool masculine look about them and look sturdy. They are also real leather which was a plus for me as for me that is a sign of quality and that they will last me a long time. And the best bit? They were only £65. Absolute bargain for a pair of boots I adore the look of, are comfortable and will go with most outfits and definitely look great all the way through autumn and winter. I’m finding it pretty difficult to actually remove these from my feet at the moment as I love them so much! Do you guys like the cut out boot trend?

Model's Own Collecton

Whilst painting my nails today it dawned on me I had a little bit of a problem. Whilst choosing which polish to wear I noticed my collection had recently increased…a lot. And they were all the same brand; Models Own. This is partly due to gifts and partly due to offers on in Boots, but it’s safe to say I have a firm favourite when it comes to nail varnish brands. Why do I love Models Own so much? For £5 they are fantastic quality and have one the biggest drugstore shade ranges I have seen for polishes of this kind. They last for ages and apply like an absolute dream. They also have a large range of finishes and their glitter polishes are some of the best I have used!

I promise in no way is this sponsored (one can wish ahaha!)…I just love them! I currently own ten; Hedonist (has anyone else noticed Hedonist NEVER photgraphs correctly?), Jade Stone, Indian Ocean, Mermaids Tears, Ibiza Mix, Mystic Mauve, Nude beige, Strawberry Tart, Disco Mix and Pink Fever.  After having seen some others collections of the Model’s Own facebook page I actually feel a lot better and my collection is actually rather modest. Well, that’s what I keep telling myself.
