So I went a bit crazy in Boots...

So I went to Boots with the intention of picking up some more Impress Nails in a darker colour for Fall as I wasn't feeling bright nails but as I had a 400 points voucher if I spent £40 that ran out the next day, I decided to make it up to that.

Slightly excessive I know.

Spending the No 7 Vouchers will be my next job... such a sucker for vouchers

Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean £7

If I was clever, I would've waited for this to be in the 3 for 2 offer but I don't really do much for my face because most things break me out so I really want to find something that works for me. MissBudgetBeauty on Youtube/blogger loves this so I have high hopes :)  

Simple Spotless Skin Deep Clean Cleansing Pads £4.99

Currently I swear by the Simple Spotless Skin Make Up Remover Wipes as they are one of the only things I have found that work for me. This is a new addition to the range so hopefully it will bring good results too!

Impress Nails Black £7.99

Simply love these, you can see my review here:

Revlon Photoready Primer £8.99 on offer

I am currently using the Revlon Photoready Foundation and as i'm trying to look after my skin more, I thought this would be a good addition to my everyday make up.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain 010 Darling Cherie £7.99

I love purple at the moment and thought this would be something a bit different. Only used it once so far but as soon as you put it on your lips its a nice colour but give it half an hour and its bright magenta pink! Not what I wanted.

Balmi Strawberry Lip Balm £4.99

Ever since the EOS lipbalms came out in America I wanted one so this is a pretty good alternative! It has a keyring attachment too. I love it so far, jealous of everyone who got it in their Joliebox because it is slightly pricey for a lipbalm but i'm going to go back tomorrow and get a mint one for Ryan :)

 Finally, my work is having a clearout and all the accessories are going for 2 for £1 and at that price you cant complain so here's what I got:

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
