It's been a while since I enjoyed a night of cocktails and dancing with the girls, so I'm really looking forward to the one I have planned for the end of the month, everyone knows you can't beat a girls night.

Of course the occasion requires a brand new outfit, especially with it being so rare for me these days so I've been spending the past week searching for going out dresses online. I'm usually a really last minute kind of person when making outfit decisions, but as soon as I set eyes on this black number from Quiz, I fell in love. I like how it's plain and simple with subtle mesh panelling on the body and bottom, it will look perfect styled with the beautiful grey suede wrap up platforms from La Moda, which I have had my eye on for a while - great excuse to finally treat myself.

When wearing black, I always feel that I have to have a red lip and the Pure Color Envy lipstick in 'Carnal' from Estee Lauder is the one I'm currently lusting over, I've heard such wonderful things about the formula. I'll tie it all in with a slick of Nails Inc Charlotte Villas Coconut Bright nail polish in 'Sunset Coral' on my nails and I'll spritz myself with the bottle of YSL Black Opium which I have been wanting to buy myself since I first tried it out.
I always feel a bit guilty buying myself perfume but for my once in a year night out I feel like I might as well go for it. I always go to Debenhams for my beauty products; they have everything I need and I love the fact that I can collect points on my Beauty Card to treat myself with. To make things even better, they currently have 10% off a £50 spend on their website with the code BR37.

I'm not the biggest accessories girl so I plan on keeping things simple with a bag similar to this black snake clutch bag and some dainty jewellery; I really love the Cut Out Plectrum Ring and Double Chain Plectrum Necklace from Daisy London's Laura Whitmore collection. I think silver and black always look great together so they would be perfect. Dainty jewellery pieces like this are so wearable too, I know I'll be able to get my money's worth from them.

What are you currently lusting after?
