Halloween Nails


Over the last few days I've been really getting in to Halloween so I've done a few Halloween nails for you!

This one is like dripping blood, I basically did was three to four dots half way down the nails, all different lengths and did lines from the dots to the tips of my nails where I joined it all up and your left with this blood dripping effect, ideal for Halloween!

On These nails I used a  black liquid eye liner with a thin tip to draw the cobweb shape on to my nails and sealed It by using a top coat. I really liked using the eye liner to create this, and shall use it more often in some more nails of the day! 

Have you done anything Halloweeny?

The Autumn Tag

Hello Lovelies!

Ive spotted this Autumn tag going around and thought I have my go and let you know a few of my autumn favs! 

Favourite Autumn lip product? 
I'm only getting into lipstick but for this time of the year I would go for more darker lipsticks such as burgundy or possibly deep red colour. I hope to pick some autumn lipsticks up soon!

Favourite Autumn nail polish?
 I am loving mostly dark colours on my nails especially Barry Ms indigo which is such a pretty dark navy with a purple hint and also Barry Ms raspberry at this time of year its my go to nail polish for autumn. 

Favourite Starbucks Autumn drink? 
I don't have a favourite starbucks but I'd say a cappucino or their hot chocolate, both are scrummy. 

Favourite Autumn candle? 
I don't particularly have a favourite candle or burn candles that often but I love vanilla. 

Favourite Autumn scarf, accessory etc? 
Favorite autumn accessory would be a big chunky scarf. I feel the cold so easily and a cosy scarf is key for those freezing days that will be here shortly!

Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?
 I would probably pick a haunted house! I've always wanted to stay in a haunted house for the night.

Favourite Halloween movie? 
Hocus Pocus always watched it when I was little and just love it! 

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
 This year I'm being a vampire as I have a dress that would be perfect for a vampire look!

What are your favourite things about autumn? 
The change in the weather, chunky cosy jumpers, layering, boots, I just love autumn/winter fashion. The cold brisk mornings, rainy lazy days, and the relaxed feeling you get at this time of the year. Autumn/winter is by far my favourite season.

I tag you all to share you Autumn favourites too!

Hope you all have a nice weekends.

Kate Moss Matt Lipstick Review


The other day I popped into boots and I picked up one of these new Kate Moss matte lipsticks. I'm not usually one for lipstick, as I have such dry lips sometimes it puts me of.. But I was drawn too this one and thought lets give this one a go as I just love the colour. Its a orangey pinky red, its so pretty and can be worn easily with any outfit. The lipstick its self is such a nice formula it glides on with ease and doesn't dry my lips out, and has such a lovely scent to it. I've worn this every day since I bought it and I just love it! I wish I picked up some of the other colours too they all looked soo pretty. 

Have you tried any of these lipsticks, what do you think of them?

I have been lusting for this jacket for a long time.. I'm not usually one for khaki but I just love the style and the contrast on this jacket, can't wait to get my hands on one! I'm having a huge craving for boots at the minute.. and these ones from Topshop are at the top of my list they are just so pretty and look so comfy! At work we've been getting a fair few jumpers in and i spotted this rose golden brown jumper, Its such a  gorgeous colour, it really reminds me of Christmas with the gold flecks. I also adore this shirt from H&M and I just love the detail on the collar, and teamed with chunky knitwear it'll be perfect for winter. During the colder months burgundy on my nails is my go to, and this deep purpley red from the new Topshop dark side of nude range is just so lovely and i think will be my new staple in my collection.

Lush Cupcake Face Mask Review


I've been using this face mask from lush lately and I absolutely love it! This mask is aimed at oily and teenage skin to help absorb oil and control your break outs which is exactly what my skins needs desperate help with. It contains cocoa butter, linseed, cocoa powder along with peppermint, spearmint and sandalwood, it also has little beads in it to exfoliate your skin. The mask is just lovely and feels like its actually working whilst its drying. After using it my skin is left feeling super soft, smooth and cleansed, plus it smells absolutely amazing, just want to eat it!

Have you tried this face mask out, what are your thoughts?

So when its cold you know I might turn the stars and moon to light

Today's NOTD is this gorgeous blue by Barry M called blue moon, this is such a nice cool toned polish and I'd never noticed until applying it today that is has tiny spects of dark blue shimmer in it! Its a very pale blue.. maybe not for autumn but I'm loving wearing these light colours on those chilly days we've been having.

Haul for Y'all

Hello Lovelies! 

I went shopping.. again! I was pondering around boots getting the essentials when I saw they had a 3for2 on hair care, and as my hair is in need of some loving I brought a few things.

I absolutely love the Aussie brand, such lovely products that do exactly what it says on the tin! I re-stocked up on Miracle Moist, my hair is soo dry its need that extra helping hand and this shampoo definitely helps to hydrates my hair. I picked up this conditioner from dove, this is their Nourishing oil care express treatment. I have such dry ends due to dip dying my hair many months back, and I'm hoping this treatment will give my hair a little boost, and it smells so scrummy! I also picked up this Tony and Guy sea salt spray, I've been umming and ahhing about sea salt spray as i have such straight flicky hair that it may not work, but I'll give it a try and see if it does the job.Finally beauty wise I brought this Garnier replenishing lotion,  I needed a new body cream soo thought I'd give this one a whorl. 

I then went over to Primark and picked up a few little bits. 

I've been wanting a check shirt for ages, but can never find one that I actually like, I saw this one in Primark and loved it so had to buy it! I really want to put some studs on the collar too. I also picked up this jumper, as its starting to get a little chilly, I thought I best start buying warmer clothes. This jumper is soo cosy and I just love it! Finally I got this chunky scarf, I absolutely love the colour burgundy during the colder months, and this is just perfect for those wintery days.

Hope your  all having a nice day!

No 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream Review

Recently I've been trying to find a moisturiser that will help tame my oiliness but can not seem to find one to do the trick. I spotted this day cream by No 7 in Boots the other day on one of my many ventures a week in there.. I had a few £5 off vouchers to use and as I already use the exfoliator and cleanser from No 7 which I loved so why not try the day cream. As this is aimed at oily/combination skin No 7 says that the product is a light, non pore blocking moisture cream to hydrate whilst balancing oil production and preventing breakouts. And after a few weeks I can say that its a good day cream, the fact its quite light, I don't feel like my face has soo many products on it. It's also helped the small dry patches I get but I can't say that's its done much for my oiliness.. its helped a little bit and my skin has seemed a lot brighter and spot free since using it along with my other No 7 products however the oiliness is still in need of taming. I would recommend this product maybe to those who haven't got such oily skin as myself and at £12.50 its worth a go especially with a £5 off voucher! 

Have you tried any of the No 7 Beautiful skin range, what's your thoughts on them?

Ice cream is happiness condensed

Today's NOTD is this lovely light pink colour by Barry M called strawberry ice cream. This is such a bright pretty colour, and apply's so nicely too. And on those dull miserable days it gives my nails a pick me up. 

What do you think of this colour? and the Barry M range?
