MAC Cosmetics Makeover

Prior to the Clothes Show on Tuesday, I had a MAC makeover in Selfridges, Birmingham. My friend, Emma had pre-booked the appointments in store.

A 30 minute session is £20 and 60 minutes, £30. However, the bonus is that this money is then redeemable on products! We went for the hour long session as we knew we could spend £30 easily.

The make up artists were really nice and asked us what kind of look we would like. I thought that I might aswell go for something a little different to what i'd normally do so I went for a smokey eye look with lots of glitter!


They went and gathered some of the products that they were going to use.


I'm pleased that I finally know my MAC shade. I've never wanted to have to go bare faced or anything to find out but as predicted, I'm pale as normal and NC15.
I'm afraid that these are phone pictures and not the best quality but here' the finished look!

The make up artist then proceeded by completing a face chart for us to take away, listing all the products used and then it was shopping time. It's usually pretty hard to get anybody's assistance in MAC because they're so busy but they made sure to stay with us until we were done and had chosen our products.


I chose a lustre lipstick in Lovelorn (£15) which is this pretty pink shade and I also picked up the Fix Plus Spray (£14.50) which i've been thinking about for a while and the Brush Cleaner (£10).



Overall, I was pleased with the results and if you're planning on spending some money in MAC anyway, why not book yourself in for a treat. You're not losing anything!

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.
I was reall…
