February Favourites

Beauty products of the month :)

Now that the snow has finally gone and we're making that much needed transition into Spring, pastel shades are back!!!

My all time favourite this month is my nails inc. nail polish in Duke Street :)
it's this gorgeous lilac colour and it goes with everything!

Then, urban decay eyeshadow in Mary Jane. it's a metallic bluey silver that wearable alone but great with a charcoal colour to create a smokey eye.

Next up is my discovery of ELF -

it's a great cheap make up site with their regular line product at only £1.50

i came across it when trying to find some brushes that weren't too expensive. The studio line is slightly more expensive but their brushes are amazing!!! i think i own all of them now :) Maybe i'll do another order tonight...

i've heard a lot about the Barry M lipstick in 101, the totally nude one that literally camouflages into your skin. So, thinking i'd try it out i went to buy it from Superdrug but being more of a pink person :) i ended up with the Bubblegum Pink one in number 100 and i'm glad i did :) it's a true bubblegum colour and is great if you can pull it off :) i like wearing it with Benefits the gloss in no peeking over the top :)

Next up is this blush shade from Rimmel, it isn't in its original packaging so i'm unsure of the name :( but its a great middle tone between pink and brown shades :)

Back to Benefit :) i'm loving the Bad Gal Mascara in Blue. it's a purple shade and is meant to really enhance the white of your eyes and brown eyes. My friend got it for me and it's a bit of a change from a harsh smokey eye :)

Finally, Lush's Lemony flutter cuticle butter - the smell of this is gorgeous. it's oily but therefore very moisturising - great in this cold weather :) i only have the trial size but it is lasting forever :)

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
