My recent go to Fashion For Autumn...

Afternoon all,

Now them frosty mornings and dark nights are creeping in the more layers
we sling on the better in my opinion so here are a few
items of clothing I've picked up to help me through.

These boots from New Look have been a life saver! You can throw them on with 
any outfit whether its jeans or tights and a dress.
There also super comfy so your little toes can go a full day in luxury.

This was a little gem I found in a local charity shop for £2! Its woolly, soft and cream so 
will go with anything. If you want to see how i styled it up head on over to my instagram 
profile to see.

This was another treasure i found in the British Heart Foundation for £5.
Its by Wallis and it still had it's tags on he he. Safe to say i am becoming a pro
bargain hunter in my spare time and I am not ashamed to admit it!
Looks amazing dressed up or down and it's even roomy enough to fit a jumper underneath
without looking too bulky.

I have been using this ice blue slouchy satchel bag none stop as it goes with everything, fits the 
kitchen sink in and looks lovely to boot! I got this in a sale at M&Co a while
back so may not be about anymore but i think this colour is a real change from the 
black, cream and red trends for bags this winter.

And last but not least you have to through a statement necklace into the mix right?!
Love the cranberry red colour of this and it goes beautifully with everything.
I got this from Primark after seeing it in a haul of Fleur De Forces so cheers for the
heads up on that one and for £3 you can't go wrong.

Sees you soon fashion lovers

Maybelline Baby Lips review

Afternoon all,

Yes your eyes are not deceiving you, it is I.... I am back!
I have had a hell of a ride of it these past few months hence my absence 
but i am back with a vengeance with plenty to review so hold on to your
laptops ladies.

Firstly I thought I'd start off with an easy one to ease myself into things....
(which you can find at Boots, click on link above or Superdrug)

I know I gave in to the hype but as a beauty lover and now dedicated researcher 
you just have to!
I went for Hydrate (the blue one) and Pink Punk (the pink, obviously).

I wanted to try a pigmented one in comparison to your regular lip balm type
and I have to say i certainly noticed the difference.

The blue is definitely more for combating your dry lip issues where as i feel the pink has been more focused 
on the colour pay off so does lack a little in the moisturizing sense but both 
work well for what they are, just more so the blue.

As you can see the pink looks quite subtle on the swatch but trust me when i say
when applied several times to the lip boy does it stand out in 
a pink fluorescent kinda way.

I'd be intrigued to try more and for £2.99 a pop who can complain!
Also there is 3 for 2 at the minute at Boots so now is the time to buy.

Sees you later ladies

Good enough to eat

I have a sweet tooth.

There i admitted it, now what follows is something that would probably make me very large indeed if it was in fact edible!

Holy cod, this is some fine smelling shower gel i have to say so when it say its completely natural i thought 'yeah and I'm a brunette version of Britany Spears', But i do have a reliable source (my auntie and uncle who are real life vegans, slightly bonkers and lovers of herbal stuff) that tell me this is one of the only natural products they are able to use. 

So grab yourself a bargain because these babies are going for £1 at Morrison's at the minute and have a explosive nostril experience in the shower with all the lovely scents available including a mint one that will soon clear out any cold and a lemon one that will make you feel as if you sucking on an actual lemon! 

Sorry about the graphic descriptions but these really do pack a punch in the smell department plus they leave your skin lovely and smooth after which is always a bonus with shower gel. (My one is Raspberry and vanilla, i pray someone comes out with a milkshakes that tastes as good as this bad boy smells.)

Versatile Blogger Award

The lovely Erica from Abundance Of Erica nominated me for this award and i must say I'm pleased as punch! She is pretty, talented, takes amazball pictures and you'd be silly not to hop on over to her blog and subscribe. Thank you Erica, it means a lot to me and it makes me happy that i know people out there like what I'm doing enough to keep on reading :)

Now the rules are easy peesy:

1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers
2. Give them the heads up that you have nominated them
3. Share 7 weird and wonderful facts with us all about yourself
4. Thank the blogger who nominated you 
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award symbol to your post

So here goes my 7 odd ball facts about myself:

* I am a self confessed clean freak, if shiz ain't stacked neatly or there is a cushion out of order then things are gonna get crazy around here.

* I am a typical Taurus: I'm stubborn, afraid of change, likes earthy colours (but not pooy brown) and am as loyal as a Labrador.

* I have 3 tattoos so far, a diamond, a symbol on my wrist i designed myself and one on my back that i got when school became a tad boring one day so decided to pop along to my local tattooist instead! ( i will say that i had been planning that tattoo for 2 years but because i was a wimp i had to do it at the last minute so i didn't chicken out, well worth it though and i got so hooked that's how the other 2 came to be he he).

* I hate all veg, especially the green ones yet i love mushrooms! (odd i know)

* I'm allergic to Christmas trees.

* Bargain hunting is my main mission on a shopping trip. If i can't get something for cheap as chips then i don't want it.

* The Beauty & The Beast is my all time favourite Disney film. I feel that may have been down to the fact that Belle was the only brown haired Princess when i was younger so we had more in common then the rest but still an awesome film.

Any here are the fab bloggers i nominate for this award just because they rock:

1. Miss Budget Beauty.... Here

If I had Instagram....

Here would be some of my shots from the week so far:

My new bargain find, I stumbled across it while in a local charity shop and had to have it.
It was originally from Primark for £8 (still had tags and padding inside!)
but was on offer for £3 so who was i to say no hay.

Everyone has that one warm drink that gets them through the long winter nights, right?
From hot chocolate with all the trimmings or a good hearty cuppa tea, mine just
happens to be Cranberry & Raspberry instant tea in my funky 
cupcake flask. 
Don't judge me, i think its cute also it has the added bonus of being less likely for me
to become a burns victim from fatal spillages. 

Loving these little beauties at the minute:
We have Maybelline 24 hour stay foundation, Revlon lip butter in Red Velvet,
an EOS balm in a mangoy flavour and Rimmel glam eye mascara.

A gorgeous canvas i found for £2 to hang above me bed, cute ain't it :)

I shall hopefully be on Instagram before long so keep your eyes peeled for that, i shall be snap happy i fear.

Pucker up.... Sleek style

Any beauty blogger worth her salt will know that Sleek is well known for one thing in particular... the AMAZBALL eyeshadow palettes! I am the proud owner of 3 so far (shall delve more in to that on another post don't you worry) but i know that Sleek isn't that readily available to all countries yet so sorry if this is like rubbing it in a tad :/

However with Sleek releasing more and more new products now such as there True Colour Lipstick range which boasts 30 shades, has suggestions for fair, medium and dark skin tones and with a price like £4.99 who's gonna argue, right!

This gorgeous red is called Vixen really stands out!
Also there are plenty of neutrals for the slightly lower key ladies out there
(don't you worry I'm one of them so you ain't alone lol).

But what i wanted to focus on was what's been hanging about for a while and that's there range of POUT POLISHES. Can i just say that they smell so good you just wanna eat it but once on the lips that's truly the last thing you want to actually do.... it tastes disgusting!!! But given your not suppose to taste it then i shall over look this small issue.

I have to say this is a lovely little lip product (over looking the taste of course). It adds a nice hint of colour, above is the one i have in Peach Perfection 964 and its great for a nice nude base. You could wear it alone or just to add a sheen over a matte lipstick maybe. 

It's not that sticky but i fear your boyfriend wouldn't really appreciate you kissing him with it on as it can transfer (same example goes for pets and clothing just for a quick heads up while I'm at it). The product contains SPF 15 which is always a nice added bonus and has 10 g worth of the stuff so unless your quite heavy handed this should last you for a decent amount of time.

Available at Superdrug and also off Sleek website HERE for £4.49 each and you can chose from 9 different shades. (Image of lipstick off Sleek website over HERE ).

Blog Space

We all need that one place to go and be zen for a little bit, just to escape the craziness that is our day to day lives. It could be anywhere from the comfort of your living room to a door step somewhere (not saying you might be homeless or anything, i just couldn't come up with a more creative place lol). 

I use to blog from the sofa.... ooo comfy i hear you mumble, well your wrong it wasn't! I've lost count of the amount of times i went to stand up but realised to late that my feet had given up on me and fallen asleep. Anyway recently i purchased (off Ebay for an absolute steal may i smugly add) a make up/ blogging desk. It has now become my place of zen and work, also a place to put my face on in the mornings so as not to scare innocent passers by.

Here's a few more i discovered on Pinterest the other day....

Gotta love a bit of monochrome here and there hay.

Pictures dotted around really get your creative juices flowing i find.

Quirky and thrown together but still has the comfort factor!
