Early Birthday Present

A few weeks ago (maybe a month or two ago now) my very good/best friend Nowara bought me a early birthday present, a new bag from Accessorize (see here). I was sooo excited even though my birthday is not until 1st November. Everyone that knows me know that I love a bag and as soon as I saw this one I fell in love. Its a burgundy colour which I keep seeing all over the high street this season and I can't wait to use it more, it also comes in other colours too. Since I got it I've used it a couple times and it is so spacious, it fits my iPad, notebook, umbrella and my little make up bag the only thing is my purse is just so big for the bag it fits but I've had to buy a smaller purse which isn't a bad thing because it takes up a lot of space in all my bags. It has two outer zip compartments and one inner, it can be carried over you arm or shoulder (as it has an additional strap) so its very versatile for me. I'm currently in London at the moment shopping as its my birthday tomorrow !! Yay and I'm using this bag and I have been shopping for hours now and it's not hurting my arm or anything it's just perfect and my nails match it too !!!

Wednesday Addams

Me and my family were invited to a fancy dress Halloween/birthday party last night, at first I didn't really want to dress up but as we were all talking I decided I would. As I have long hair dark hair my dad has often joked around and said that I should dress up as Morticia Addams which I was going to but I could really find a long black dress then I realised I had a dress which was kind of similar to Wednesday Addams and thought perfect. The dress I have had for well over a year and I've never worn it and was such a bargain as I bought it for less then £10 from AX Paris Curve (I think they have disappeared now?), paired with some 200 denier tights from Primark (so comfortable too!) and my military style boots and of course my new cute River Island Mini Structured Bag. I had been watching YouTube make up tutorials for Wednesday mainly for the eyes as I wasn't too sure how to do them and I had foundation and concealers that can make my face look paler. I bought this Beauty UK's eye shadow and liner but I didn't use the brush included I just used a Smokey Eye Duo Brush and for the base I used Soap and Glory's Kick Ass Concealer the used Lush's Light Yellow foundation and to top it off and keep it all matte (also my favourite beauty product) Inglot's Mattifying Loose Powder. We all finally finished our make up and costumes and oh my we all looked amazing and we had such a good night. We woke this morning and was just laughing so much with how everyone looked so good.

Ooh Check Me and My New Glasses

You may think why have I posted about some new glasses I bought but I've really been looking forward to getting them. Since I was in college (at least 4 years ago) I've worn the same glasses and I've been wanting to update the frames for so long now I feel they are outdated for me personally. My eye sight has changed slightly and I needed a new prescribed pair and as I was in Specsavers they asked if I wanted to look for some. They were very helpful (but I did feel like I was passed from person to person) and the lady that assisted me choosing them told me straight up which suited me and which didn't. As some of you may know they have 2 for 1 on their designer range, I thought hey why not :). I wanted a black pair and a pair with colour or something a little different, the only downfall was I needed a pair that suited the shape of my face that left me a bit short on selection. We found a perfect black framed Karl Largerfeld and a purple pair of Tommy Hilfiger's. I finally picked them up Friday and I'm soooo happy I finally have a new pair of glasse well two hehe. They look a lot better them my previous ones and I've had some nice compliments too but It's quite strange because my mum isn't sure on the purple ones but my dad likes them and she preferes the black ones but my dad isn't quite thinking the same. Oh well I love them both they will have to get use to them lol.

Lush : Ayesha Review

Last month I bought Lush's Fresh Face Mask Ayesha, I wanted to try something that would be a benefit to my skin and not just something to put on for the fun of it. There was so much to choose from I was like a kid in a candy store. I was reading the little boards above the products and was trying to decide when a staff member came over asked if I needed any help? I asked for two samples one of Ayesha and Love Lettuce but was a bit shocked when I was told "no because there wouldn't have enough in the sample pot to cover your face properly" but I was confused as I was given a sample of a face mask before in one. In the back of my mind I thought it was a sample no samples are ever a suitable size and it was there was of getting people to spend money buy buying the full size. Anyway moan over she was asking me what my needs were for wanting to try them and told me the difference between them both. Out of them she had recommended Ayesha reason being is my skin is combination and is prone to spots as it has witch hazel in this will help but the sometimes where I get the dryness the Honey will help stop the dry patches. After my first use my mum noticed a difference she was just a bit like "Ooh your face looks a bit different", since then I had used it at least once a week, leave it on for 10-30 minutes depending how much time I have. I have used this after a heavy night out and it perks your face right up and I've been getting less spots too. I am now on my second pot, they last roughly a month, even with the colder weather slowly creeping up on us I hoping them benefits will still be apparent and just as good.

Catch Up Friday

I haven't been feeling very well for a few days but I had planned earlier in the week to catch up with Nowara which was much needed, in the evening. I was up early on Friday which was unusual as it was my day off, I'd straightened my hair (which seems to take forever!) slowly got ready and I had to go into town to get a couple things then come back to meet my mum before we went food shopping. By the time we got home it wasn't long before I had to go back out again, it felt like I was on the go all day which was a good thing. The sun was shining very bright and surprisingly wasn't really that cold which was a good thing but I still wore my black lace up boots which now I love wearing super comfortable with a Asos Curve black swing top and my New Look Inspire Blazer during the day but later changed into my "leather" jacket from River Island as I knew it would get cold. Anyway we met up at my favorite place Cult, I hadn't been for a while and it's not overly expensive. We had a few drinks and something to eat (I had the food in the top left of the picture and Nowara had the naughty Waffles and Ice Cream) and a well deserved catch up. Was lovely evening ...

Greige Skies Are Upon Us

Well the weather has certainly changed compared to yesterday! It was only yesterday that I was wearing sandals and I woke up today and the sky was just grey. I do like autumn but this has come suddenly in a way even tho it is now October, I think I'm just upset no more sandals lol. Now the colder weather is coming about I just keep thinking more Costa trips on my days off and catch up with my friends and movie days I'm just looking forward to it all (sad I know but oh well lol). After today I think it's now time to change from the bright nail colours to more darker and berry colours to start it all off I've decided to go with Sally Hansen's Greige.

My Not So Random Trip To London

All week I had been thinking do I go London or not? Well come Friday I decided yes, there really isn't much of a persuasion for me to go cause I would be there every weekend if I could. Browsing along Oxford Street early evening is something I just love to do and as the evenings are getting darker quicker I'm more excited (strange I know!Lol). Each time I have to go into Primark cause you never know what bargains you will come out with. Winter is certainly on its way, I was seeing a lot of jumpers and big thick cardigans everywhere. If I had space in my bad I so would have bought a new cardigan. Everytime I'm in London I judge the weather wrong, surprisingly it was still quite warm I could have done with wearing a thinner jacket by I was dying to wear my new River Island Zig Zag Jacket. On Saturday I decided to take a little wonder, found Tower Of London along the way and took the tube to South Kensington to visit one of my favourite places V&A. I've been going there since I went college and I still love it! Only downfall was the underground was so busy as they had planned works but it doesn't matter when your in London lol.

Beauty Buys of September

This month I'm not sure if I had been OTT with buying or not but I did had a bit of a moment in Lush with Daniel we both needed something to relax us. I've always been a fan of their products, this time I went for a bath bomb (Dragons Egg), bubble bar (Sunnyside) and a fresh face mask (Ayesha). That night I'd run a bath applied the Ayesha face mask which has a earthy smell to it and popped in the Dragons egg and just watched it fizz and crackle away. I kept the face mask on for about 15-30 minutes as recommended by the lady in store. After I'd taken it off my mum said straight away my skin looks a lot better, clearer and healthier. Of course I was thrilled with the result and knew that I will be buying this and using at least once a week. I'm yet to use Sunnyside but I'm sure there I'll upload a pic on my instagram :)


As soon as I tried this L'Oréal Nude Magique CC Cream Anti Redness I was in amazed of what the affects, my mum even tried it and was impressed with it. It’s such a light weight finish but brilliant affects without feeling like your covered in make-up I think but anyway I won’t go into too much details read the full review here.

I did buy a few nail products this month and not just nail varnishes either! Sometimes when I'm on the go carrying nail varnish remover and the cotton pads can just take up unnecessary space in my bag so whilst I was in London I bought Quickies Nail VarnishRemover Pads. I've seen these around before and have been reluctant about them thinking they wouldn't be as good. Well they are better then what I thought they would be even though they are a little greasy but they still done the job. Wah Nails have launched some products through Boots, Wah London, one of them is this Clean Up Brush, I'm often making mistakes and now this can stop! Lastly I bought this Pretty Pink Heart Varnish, I did buy it because it was very cute looking and when feeling extra girly I can add a couple hearts on my nails.
