Christmas Wishlist

A bit early for some maybe?

Oh well, I like to be prepared and start Christmas Shopping really early which makes Ryan think he has to aswell.

So here you go....

Sigma Make Up Brushes 

I have wanted these for absolutely ages. I think i'll feel like I have a complete set when I have these and wont be buying odd brushes here and there.

I originally wanted the pink set - make me blush but I've decided black is classier and they're actually cheaper. With the 10% discount code which this month is DEAL2012 they work out at £57 including postage.


My hair is pretty straight so I rarely straighten it anymore but this also means it doesn't stay curler for long. I've been saying for a while that I want some new curlers for a while and Ryan actually came back with these for me after going shopping the other day. These John Frieda Defined Curls are apparently the recommended option from the lady in Boots, bless him :) I actually used these for Halloween so check out my last post here to see how they worked.


I love getting home from work and putting my pyjamas on if i'm not going anywhere for the evening so why not have one of these aha.

Bath & Bodyworks Candles

Candles are my new found love at the moment. I ordered two Bath & Bodyworks Candles on Ebay - one in Wild Strawberry and the other Flower Shop. They are mini candles and came to £4.50 each but they are amazing and I want some more!They actually make your room smell of the scent which I find most candles don't.

This shop is in the UK and actually stock a range of American products including EOS lipbalms waheyyy :) They have the Slatkin & co candles so when they get some different scents in i'm going to get some :)

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
