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 :)

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

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

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.
