A Mini Boots Haul

As if the snow has come back again; it's almost April!

On Friday night, I drove round to Ryan's and the roads were horrible, I was skidding a bit and I didn't like it! So, on Saturday morning, I abandoned my car at Ryan's and started walking to the bus stop. 

On the way to the bus stop you pass a retail park which has a Boots so I stopped there. I actually planned to have a no shopping Saturday but the snow annoyed me so I went anyway.

At the moment they have cosmetics and hair products on 3 for 2! 

 As they are on 3 for 2,
the Essie nail varnishes work out as about £5.20 each which I think is more reasonably priced.

I got Bahama Mama, Mint Candy Apple and Big Spender.

I resisted Mint Candy Apple last year and I've wanted Bahama Mama for a while. Big Spender and Bahama Mama are actually quite similar colours but I felt like I needed the two.

The £5 off No7 vouchers are still running until the 30th March. I 'm making the most of them this time and stocking up. I really like No7's eye make up remover (£3.50 with voucher) after a sample that I got for Christmas and their wipes are good too! (£2 with voucher)

I always try and get hair bobbles without metal as that can break your hair but I find that you pay for what you get. I've had these before and they didn't snap - £3.50 for 27.

After Boots, I headed to Costa and called a taxi. I gave up with the bus as my Uggs were soaked and I had black make up streaming down my face!

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

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

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
