April Favourites

This month has gone quick! i'm sure i say this every month bt the time for a monthly favourites is always around the corner :)

I think May is an odd month :S but as long as it brings some sun with it, i'll be happy!



I'm going to start with my absolute favourite: Natural Nymph Mineral Lipstick by ELF. A few of this months favourites are elf after my large haul a few weeks ago ;)It's creamy and doesn't dry out your lips and i'm really getting into nude colours at the moment :)

Then, Olay complete care daily UV cream. Now the sun's returned :), its really important to have an SPF. The cream is for normal/dry skin whereas i would say mine is more oily/normal but it is definately not making my skin more oily :)

I tried gel eyeliner for the first time this month and i'm impressed :) Elf's has a really good consistency and i have been using the small smudge brush to apply it.

Lush's BIG shampoo is interesting :) It doesn't taste very nice :( - yess - i got it in my mouth :( buttt it makes my hair really shiny after i have washed out all the grains in it. The consistency is really bitty so it's a bit hard to wash the product out but definately worth the effort :)

Then, Lacoste Touch of Pink Perfume. Everyone knows this perfume! I used to wear it everyday and then i kind of became immune to its sceen but after switching up my perfumes now, i can smell it again :)

No.7 Eyeliner in Turquoise (2) - this has great staying power and works really nicely for a neutral colour pop!

Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss. I pulled the shade label off so i don't know what colour ir is but, its like a glittery hot pink. It stays on for ages, longer then any lipgloss i can think of :)

So, thats it for another month ...

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 all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

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 brush and this plum colour is perfe…

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.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18


Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14



Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
