March Favourites :)

March is over already. yay for easter holidays :)

I've started curling my hair a LOT recently. I hardly ever did it in the past because i got a really bad burn on my neck a few years ago fromt he curlers - whoops! but the Andrew Barton heat defence spray has really saved my hair :) it has a tropical smell - i'm not overly keen on the smell but it definately does the job :)

Then, another hair product - after excessively burning my hair, i used the moisturising conditioner by James Brown. it is really good!!! i'm going to go buy a big bottle. This came free with this months glamour magazine that only costs £2 so i suggest you go pick it up :)

Elf corrective concealer :) 4 colours - a light beige that i use as a regular concealer, a green shade that covers up redness. A pink for under eye circles and a darker beig colour that is too dark for me so i use it as an eye primer :) and for £3.50 this is a bargain!

Benefit onyx eyeliner - MY LIFE.

Ruby & Millie eyeshadow brush :) - an everyday essential - great for applying all over lid colour.

Lush Imperalis Moisturiser - i got this in the heads,shoulder,knees and toes set. its the normal to oily skin one and I LOVE IT! The smells a bit odd but that doesn't matter - when this trial size pot runs out (its lasted ages...) i WILL invest in the full size one :)

Rimmel Magnif'eyes mascara - this is a repurchase and second time round i love it :) its in blackest black and makes my lashes so much longer and thicker :) also, special offer in ASDA - only £3 :)

Avon Cynthia Rowley all over face powder :) i fell for the packaging and its pink :) enough said.

Happy Easter

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

OOTD: I'll Show You

After quite a long break, I really want to start blogging regularly again. Time really does run away from us so let's see how this goes.... First up, an outfit of the day featuring my favourite store: River Island. Striped Shirt: River Island £36 Black Joni Jeans: Topshop £36 Boots: River Island £50 (last year) I went on a bit of a spending spree a few weeks ago ahead of the Christmas festivities as I wanted to top up my wardrobe with some pieces I could throw on for last minute plans. I like the design of the shirt although I don't think the cut is very flattering. Topshop Joni Jeans are my absolute favourite, the cut and fit is perfect and I think they have used new material lately that will actually stay black and not fade to a washed out grey. I regretted buying these boots last year as I've hardly worn them and contemplated getting rid of them but I decided to pair them up with this outfit and thought they went quite well so maybe I should try

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
