Weekly Wishlist

New look owl peplum top, Topshop jumper, H&M ankle boots, TopShop jacket, Mac lipstick in Russian red, H&M bag

Autumn is my favourite time of the year, with the chilly mornings, classic jackets and cosy jumpers, here are a few pieces which I think will be ideal for the coming weeks. I absolutely adore this new look owl print peplum top, peplums were huge during the summer and will definitely be big this season too. I cant wait to get my hands on these ankle boots from H&M, they are so pretty and will look amazing with a good pair of skinny jeans! A biker jacket is definitely a key piece for A/W and this one from Topshop is exactly the one I've been looking for and will see me through all the seasons. For winter i want to be more daring when it comes to lipstick and Macs Russian red looks simply gorgeous.

What sort of items will you be wearing this Autumn?

Hope your all having a nice day!

Nail Polish Galore

Over the last few days I've gone a little nail polish crazy. I absolutely love the Barry M nail paints, they apply so nicely and the formula is just lovely! I picked up Strawberry Ice Cream, Blue moon, Pink Flamingo, Red Glitter, Shocking Pink and finally Pink Glitter. Some of these colours are a bit summery but I do love a bright colour on my nails during the winter to brighten up the miserable days. I also Picked up this Nivea lip balm in milk and honey, I'd heard a lot of good things about it so thought I would give it a try, plus I get the worse cracked lips during the colder months so im always on the hunt for something to soothe them. 

Hope your having a lovely day!

What's In My Bag?


Lets face it every body loves being nosey at what each other has in their bag, and I am not one to deny it either! I love watching videos, reading blog posts about all the little things people carry around with them.

Here is my bag, its a dupe of the Zara shopper bag. I had been wanting the Zara one for such a long time, but refusing to spend 70 odd pounds on it! Then I saw Lily from LLYMLRS and Gemma from Gemsmaquillage have this bag they bought of ebay and I completely fell in love! Plus it was just a fraction of the price of the Zara one, I got mine for about £20. Its about a medium sized bag, I can fit everything in, including a little pink make up bag with all my essentials, a purse, perfume, hand cream, keys, spray and much more! Even with all that there's still plenty of space left over! I just love this bag, its such a classic shape and colour plus It can be worn all year round! 

Hope your all having a lovely day.

Staple Skin Care Products


Over the years I have tried many different products on my face, from Garnier, Neutrogena , Simple, Niva and so on.. Always changing to different ones trying to find products that will help combat my oiliness! Recently I've been using products from the no7 beautiful skin range for oily skin types and i must say they are really rather good! I'd never really used no 7 before, I was always given those £5 off vouchers and not used them or thrown them away, but after hearing a lots of good things about No7 I decided to give them a go! I have the foaming cleanser and the purifying exfoliator and I really like both of these products. The foaming cleanser is so soft and gentle on my skin yet removes all the dirt, make up and imperfections that my skin has attracted during the day. The exfoliator is soo lovely too! It has tiny little grains in it to scrub away all the dead skin cells and its not harsh like many other scrubs I have used and the smell is not over powering either. I find it so gentle on the skin its so nice and softening! For a toner I use the Botanics rose water toning spritz which I absolutely love, It's so smooth, refreshing, tightens pores, and has even given my skin a bit of brightness! Can't say enough good things about it. Finally as I am prone to getting spots, I use the Lush Grease Lightning spot treatment in the mornings after I've cleansed and toned as a serum. It zaps away my spots and keep them under control! Using all these products along side each other I have found that my skin has been feeling a lot better, my spots are being reduced and my oiliness is under control. I love every single product and would recommend each and every one of them!

Have you tried any of these? what did you think of them?

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light

Hello Lovely's!

On Tuesday I went to the Harry Potter studio tour, and it was amazing to say the least! The amount of detail that was put into the sets, the costumes and even in the smallest of things was incredible. Seeing all the artefacts brought back loads of memories as I grew up watching the films and reading the books, I was like an excited child again! I would completely recommend going to on the tour, there's so much to see and do and it was a great day out to spend with some amazing friends. Here are a few images I took of my time there.

Hope your all having a nice week!

Botanics Review

Hello All!

Recently I bought the Botanics eye make up remover and the toning spritz. I've been using them over the last few weeks and I really like both of them, especially the toner. I've been on the hunt for a toner that doesn't tighten your skin soo much that its sore straight after which the previous ones I had been using did especially   the Garnier Pore Purifying toner, it left my skin so red, I don't know if it was just my skin type but I didn't get on with it what so ever. However the Botanics toner spritz I'm really loving, its nice and gentle on the skin, and leaves your face feeling smoother and fresher, and i can say that my skin has been a lot better since using it. I decided to get the eye make up remover as i had heard a lot of mix comments about it, some people either really love it or hate it, but i can safely say i quite like it. It wipes away waterproof mascara with ease where as with others you have to rub vigorously at your eyes to just get it off. It feels really nice and soothing on my eyes and gets all your mascara off, all in all i really like!

Eyes make up remover £2.66
Toning Spritz £3.33

Have you tried either of these, what were your thoughts?

Hope your having a lovely day!

Nail of the day

Here's a nail of the day for you all. I've been wearing this Blue polish by collection 2000 called Electric Dreams a lot lately and I absolutely love this colour, its such a pretty turquoise! I've also been teaming it with my Barry M in 296 Coral on my ring fingers as I think it adds a bit of contrast to the vibrant blue! 

Hope your all having a lovely day!

A Little Haul

Hello Lovely's

So there have been a few things I've been wanting lately, and working in h&m I'm bombarded by bargains, plus I need to use my discount for the first time so i treated my self  to a few things.

From H&M I bought these riding trousers (£9.99) I had seen that Heidi from Hemlines & Holdups had bought these in the dalmatian print and they looked soo nice on her. I decided to buy the bottle green ones as I absolutely loved the colour, I'm not one for green but I really like them, and think they'll be perfect for autumn/winter. I also got this dye top, which I think is amazing, love it! Again its something I would never normally go for but the print is just lovely and its look so nice with jeans/jeggings. From Primark I brought this peplum top (£8), its looks really nice on, and I think teamed with some disco pants for a night out would look amazing. I also got these shoes.. I know I don't need any more! But I couldn't help my self.. they are so pretty and with the studs bang on trend, and only £8! Finally I just bought a basic burgundy top from New Look (£3.99) just for those days where I want too chuck something quick on. 

Hope your all having a nice week!
