Mac at the CCO :) & Jack Wills

Last Sunday, me and my friend took a trip to Bicester. It is an outlet village in Oxfordshire and we went because we knew there was a CCO there! (cosmetics company outlet for those that don't know)

It was a really hot day and soo much fun :) i made my first proper MAC purchases!!! i could've spent days just looking at all the make up! For some reason, i had the impression that the CCO would be really trampy and that we would be lucky if we there were a few MAC products about. So, we were real suprised to find MAC stuff all nicely laid out.

i spent £40 and got these 3 things:

i got a mineralised eyeshadow duo in Devil Daycare. £10.50 I love the purple shade :) Then, i got the Emanuel Ungaro beauty powder in Flower mist dew. It's a really nice colour and has good pigmentation. They had some of the beauty powders from the Hello Kitty collection which i found hard to resist due to the beautful packaging but the Emanuel Ungaro one had better pigmentation. £11
i then got a 165 brush which i've been using for blush and bronzer.(contouring) £18.50

Then i got a t shirt from Jack Wills for £14 instead of £34!

Then i got these two bikini tops for £5 each :) instead of £15

Also, a juicy couture store has opened there today! So gutted that we missed it. Another reason to go back :)



  1. I love Bicester! You got some great purchases from the CCO, I'm going there next week :D

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
