Summer Spree!

Oops I did it again! 
Indeed I did, it was payday last week and I thought I would treat myself to some new bright nail polish after all the gorgeous weather we've been having. As well as that it was my grandma's birthday and I really wanted to get her something she would love. I bought her the brand, new out No7 mascara (not pictured, in the gold tube) which she did end up loving. There was also a promotion on if you bought 2 No7 products you got a free gift set, so guess who spent over £30 in Boots - eek!

So I ended up buying 2 Barry M polishes (the third was a free gift) in Passion Fruit and Strawberry, the free one was BLE? The No7 Stay Perfect polish was in Foxglove. I also picked myself up a Revlon Kissable stain for £2 cheaper in the shade Honey which is sooo gorgeous!

On to the free gifts, it was said everything together was worth about £30 and I am overall very happy with what I got :) In this cute little set I got a Tinted Moisturizer in fair (which is a little meh), Airbrush Away Primer, a full sized tube on their High Shine gloss in Coral Kiss, a sample of their Stay Perfect eye shadow I'm not exactly sure what the colour is but when on it's a gorgeous pale blue/purple shade full of glitter. Last but not least an Extreme Length mascara - I wish this was full size because it's amazing! I feel like it give the same effect of Benefit's Their Real but for a much cheaper price (which I hope to put to the test).

I've already worn Barry M's passion Fruit which is an unbelievably gorgeous shade! 
Have you guys been shopping recently? I love reading haul posts ;)

Punking Up with New Rocks!

I recently bought a new pair of shoes, oops! However these babies are gorgeous, their not a 'normal' type of shoe, much like when creepers came out people HATED them. So if you don't like them, cool! I sure do love them and they are unusual but I've always wanted a pair :)
See what I mean, not normal!
However I picked these babies up off an eBay auction, I'm terrible with waiting around so I quickly clicked the 'buy it now!' button and they arrived today :)))) I'm not entirely sure why but I have always wanted a pair and these were in my size. The seller said they had only been worn literally once and I paid £80 for them with delivery. I'm such a happy girl and better yet my boyfriend doesn't mind them :)

See you tomorrow  with a beauty post!

Pink Ladies | FOTD

I recently did a lovely eyeshadow look for work that I wanted to share with you all as I'm trying to get in to the whole 'I won't wear eyeliner everyday!' It was actually unintentional, I just meant for the look to be a nice pale pinky colour and due to my crease brush having a little black colour from the day before it transferred and darkened my look, but I liked it even more!

 For the base colour I used my NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk and the base shade was number 5 which I dusted all over my lid and the crease shade number 6 in this sleek palette (full of my favorite colours!!) which I put into my crease and blended outwards and down which is when the black transferred down.

NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk for the base
Shades 5 & 6 in the Sleek Storm palette (5 on the bottom, 6 on the crease)
No7 Extreme Length Waterproof Mascara

Palmer's Cococa Butter Lip Balm
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Stain in 001 Honey Douche

I recently went on a little spree which included quite a few No7 products and a few balm stains from Revlon which I'm currently loving. The new mascara I bought seems like a perfect dupe for the Benefit They're Real mascara so look out for some reviews from me in the future! Also despite the 'look' not being what I planned, I absolutely love it and I may have to try and recreate this! :)

I haven't a clue what's wrong with her because all of these shades are ever so gorgeous and so wearable!! However they're all now mine to wear and love which I shall do gladly. The ones I'm most looking forward to trying are defintely the Topshop and Maybelline polishes, the colours just look perfect.

January - June Reading Wrap Up!

So I did start to write the books I've current read into blog posts for my Goodread's reading challenge this year but I kept forgetting about them and sometimes I didn't read as much and those posts slowly went out of the window... until now! I've decided to take a different approach - of filming a video! At the end of the month I will gather together the books I have read that month and 'mini review' them all for you on my YouTube, However today i bring you all of the books I've read between January and the end of June.
I hope you enjoy this video and massive thanks to Hayley for inspiring me to do this (she's started it herself here!)

(sorry they look horribly messy, I'm really bad at painting my nails :c) 
 Hello everyone today I bring you another update for my nail polish challenge, I've got so many photos of all the other colours I've been wearing but this is a big favorite of mine! (Also sorry for the extreme lack of posts, I'm busy finishing my first year of college with last minute pieces of work and I've been earning lots of ££ lately but I break off on Friday hooray!). Anyway... how gorgeous is this colour? The bottle shows it to be rather dark which I was a little skeptical about but my my the colour on is ever so gorgeous, I love it!

It feels like such a vibrant summery colour and I just want to wear this all the time. It's a reasonably new polish of mine so it definitely isn't getting binned, I'm thinking of buying even more Barry M shades, despite the dry time to be slow the colours are amazing!!
