Fashion | Payday Wishlist November

Hey guys today I wanted to talk about what I am hoping to purchase with my latest payday money. When I make these collages I don't always end of purchasing the things I have chosen but I mostly likely will pick something similar up along the way.

As christmas is approaching I will be spending most of my money on presents for others rather than myself, but I thought I would still share with you what am loving at the moment.

1. Textured Skirt £29.99 from H&M. I love this and thought it would be great for work. The shape looks very flattering and unique, and would go with many things. It would look lovely with a pair of chelsea boots and black tights. Click here for the link.

2. Cable Knit Polo-neck Jumper £24.99 from H&M. I couldn't resist popping this jumper on my list as it looks so cosy and perfect for nights in, in front of the telly with a hot chocolate. It looks so so comfortable and this time of year I become obsessed with jumpers! Click here for the link.

3. Floozie Spot Print Onesie £32.50 from Asos. Again I have another cosy night in item, but its winter now and we all need cosy items to keep us warm! I love this its a really fun print, would make a great xmas present too. Click here for the link.

4. Velvet Vest Top £7.99 from H&M. I have chosen this top as I thought it would be great for the festive evenings. I really like velvet and it I think it is particularly good at christmas. Its different and quirky! Click here for the link.

5. Quilted Lock Cross Body Bag £16.00 from Asos. Every girl needs her standard going out little black bag which will match any outfit. This quilted bag is perfect and looks like the designer styles such as mulberry or chanel. Click here for the link.

6. Pieces Varen Pom Beanie Hat £10. The weather has become a lot colder lately and I am in need of a hat to keep me warm. I need a hat which will go with most outfits. I think this green hat with a faux fur pom pom is perfect! Click here for the link.

And that is everything which I may purchase with this months payday money!

Make Up | Maybeline Brow Drama

I wanted to share my thoughts on this particular brow product. I had mixed feelings about this product at first.

I bought two colours, Transparent and Medium Brown. I intended the Transparent to be used after filling in my brows with a pencil. It is perfect for that, and would recommend it.

The other shade I bought, Medium Brown, was because I wanted to see what a tinted brow gel would be like for my brows. If I use this product on it's own it doesn't create a dramatic look for me as I have very thin haired brows. I have concluded that I do need to fill in my brows before applying a gel. On a no make up day this product is perfect, as it defines my brows enough for a minimal make up look.

In conclusion, I would recommend this product for brows. It took me time to work out how it works best for me and my brows. After taking the time to do this it has made me love this product. So if your not sure at first, keep trying different combinations and you will find what works for you.

What's your favourite eye brow gel?

Fashion | Cardigan Picks for this Autumn/Winter

Today, I thought I would share my pick of cardigan styles for this autumn/winter. I love this time of year as I particularly love snuggling up in chunky cardigans.

1. Lu Lu Stitch Cardigan £30 from Topshop. This is my ultimate chunky pick from my selection. I think this is a staple to have in your wardrobe for the winter. At the moment I am in need of purchasing a new chunky cardigan as my current one is looking a bit tired. This one is perfect I love the colour, it brings a bit of warmth into these wintery times. I think it is also important that this kind of cardigan has pockets. This is an excellent purchase. Click here for the link.

2. Loose Knit Cardigan £19.99 from H&M. This is a great standard cardigan, which isn't too hot and would go with most things. V neck cardigans are my favourite to wear open. Another great staple for the wardrobe. Click here for the link.

3. Jaquard-Knit Cardigan £24.99 from H&M. I picked this cardigan as it is an alternative to a solid colour, you can throw this on and it will finish any casual outfit. It would particularly look lovely over a plain t-shirt and jeans. Click here for the link.

4. Burgundy Fine Knit Ribbed Waterfall Cardigan £14.99 from New Look. This style is a similar cut to the previous with a waterfall detail. These cardigans are perfect as well, as you can just throw them on with a pair of jeans and boots. Click here for the link.

5. Pattern-Knit Cardigan £14.99 from H&M. I mainly picked this cardigan as its the perfect style for work. This is the type I tend to wear to work. I like this one as it has an interesting pattern in the knit. Click here for the link.

That is my pick of cardigans for this Autumn/Winter. What is your favourite style?

Thank you for reading!

Make Up | Make Up Haul

I recently treated myself to some new make up products. I have bought these items over time not all in one go, which is why they may have been mentioned in a previous post but they are very new items.

I'll start from left to right, I picked up a new eyeliner pencil by Soap&Glory, Smoulder Kohl in the shade Coffee Bean. This liner has a pencil sharpener on the end which is very useful when traveling. It is also waterproof and I am constantly trying to find a liner which won't smudge throughout the day.

Then I picked up another Super Liner by L'oreal Paris in black. I have bought this liquid liner pen before and it is amazing and so intense. It is my favourite eyeliner and I was in need of a new one.

I wanted to try out a new mascara and I had heard great things about Maybeline's Lash Sensation mascara, I bought this in Intense Black. I love this mascara it creates so much length and volume it's amazing. 

I also picked up a new powder to try, One Heck of A Blot Powder by Soap&Glory. I love the compact style of this product with a great mirror and easy to take around with you.

Finally I bought two eyeshadow pencils, one in the shade Vanilla Sky and the other in Vintage Blush. I thought these two colours would be great light bases for shimmery eyeshadow looks.

And that's everything I have recently bought, what have you bought recently?

Make Up | Autumn Make Up Essentials

It's that time of year when all I want to wear is warm shimmery make up. I wanted to share with you my autumn make up essentials.

Firstly, I will talk about the base I like to use which is Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory. This is a light foundation and I love the way it glads onto my skin. It buffs in beautifully and looks natural with a glow. Then I like to use concealer and a new favourite is the Lasting Perfection Concealer from Collection in Fair. This really brightens under the eyes and covers any redness or blemish on my face. 

Next I take my bronzer which is by Bourjois Delice de Poudre illuminator and bronzer duo. I mainly use the bronzer side rather than the highlighter. I take this in the hollow of my cheeks and along my hairline and jawline. For blusher I use my trusty Blush at first sight Rosy Cheeks by Soap&Glory, this highlights as well as gives the cheeks a lovely rosy shade.

Then I like to set my face into place with a powder and I recently purchased this One Heck of a Blot Powder by Soap&Glory. This a lovely light powder which sets everything into place naturally.

Next I like to fill in my brows with the Soap&Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow Crayon in Brown. This has an angled crayon end which works beautifully to create the perfect shape. Then I set them into place with the brow gel on the other end. I have reviewed this product in a post a couple of months ago, please go to my archive list to find if you want to read the full review.

For my eyes, I used as a base Maybeline Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow pot in the shade Creamy Beige. Then I like to use my Tanya Burr Cosmetics Hollywood Palette, I mainly use Nude Delight and then Bookworm. This combination creates a lovely warm smokey brown eye which suits my blue eyes. Then I like to line my eyes with a little liner, I use L'oreal Super Liner to create a thin line with a small wing. Finally I finish by putting on some mascara, I recently purchased Lash Sensation by Maybeline, this is amazing it really lengthens and gives my lashes volume.

I know I have not put a lipstick in the photos but I either use a lip balm or a nude lip.

And thats everything I am loving using this autumn. What are your go to products?

Thanks for reading!

Beauty | The Bodyshop InstaBlur Review

Today I want to review a new primer I bought not too long ago. I wanted something which will make my make up last all day. 

This definitely does keep everything in place all day. It also minimises pores and makes my make up glide on beautifully. I had already heard great things about this product which is why I wanted to try it out. It is quite pricey at £14 but I managed to buy it when The Bodyshop had a special offer on, which they do most of the time so I would advise to keep you eyes peeled for one of them.

This product also has shine control which I believe it does, I have noticed a huge difference to how shiny my face becomes when I haven't used this product.

I would highly recommend trying this out!

Beauty| The Bodyshop, Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea Review

    Hey guys, today I want to review a product which I have been loving. This is The Bodyshop's Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea, which are beautifully fragranced bath salts.

I mentioned this product in a haul back in the spring time. This is my second pot, as I really loved it and it creates a lovely spa feeling during my bath. The fragrance is amazing, it is exactly what you imagine to smell if you went to a spa. I find the fragrance very relaxing and calming, it is perfect to use after a long day. I particularly love to use it when I have had an intense work out and my muscles are in need of soothing. This is perfect.

The tea needs the container which you have to buy separately, but once you have it then you can reuse it for the next pot or even another bath salt. I only fill the tea holder half full and find that that is enough to fragrance my bath beautifully.

It is quite a large pot of bath salts and it lasts a very long time if its only used once or twice a week. It costs £12 for the pot and £5 for the tea holder, which is a great price and lasts a long time.

I would highly recommend this product, I love it and it never fails to create a relaxing bath.

Make Up | My Nude Lipstick Collection

Today, I wanted to talk about my nude lipstick collection. I thought I had more lipsticks in nude colours but when it came to gathering them all I only actually have three. I thought about including lip balms but I think I will do a separate post about my favourite lip balms.

Anyway, I love nude lipsticks, I am not one for the bright lipsticks for everyday use, I much prefer low maintenance lip colours. The three nude colours I have are very different from each other even though they are all nudes.

First lipstick I will talk about is a Kate Moss Rimmel London lipstick from the new Nude Collection she released recently. It is in the shade 45 I don't think they have names, its a rosy nude, which I think suits me best on the nude colour spectrum. I find that the only thing I don't like about Rimmel London lipsticks is the smell of them, it does remind me of old lady make up smell. However, that aside it is a great lipstick which lasts very well until you eat some food and then it needs a re-application like most other lipsticks. These lipsticks cost £5.49 but I think they are normally buy one get one half price or something similar. Click here for a link.

Second, I have another Kate Moss Rimmel London lipstick from her original range of colours, this is shade 32. This colour I always struggle with because I'm not sure if it suits me as much as the other two but I do love the colour. It's a coral nude, quite a bright shade but not like a bright red or pink. It's a lovely lipstick just like the other I spoke about before. Click here for a link.

And the last lipstick is from Soap&Glory which is one of my favourite brands. It's the Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Stick in the shade Nudist. Now, a lot of other bloggers have raved about this as well, and I have mentioned it a few times before!  But it is amazing and completes any look. It's moisturising and isn't a sticky lip gloss, this is my go to when I don't have much time as I know is goes with any make up look. I definitely recommend trying this out. I think they have updated the packaging so it might not look like the one in the picture which I have. They cost £3.50 which is an amazing price, and there is normally a 3 for 2 offer on in Boots with Soap&Glory products. Click here for a link.

I love nude lipsticks and that's my collection, can you suggest any other nudes to try out?

Beauty | Zoella Beauty Haul

Hey guys, I recently bought some more Zoella Beauty products. If you have read my previous Zoella Beauty haul you will know that I really love the products and wanted to buy some more! I decided to try out some products from the original range Zoella released.

First of all I choose to buy the body mist called Blissful Mistful, as I have the other body mist and really like them as an alternative to perfume. The original range has a very crisp clean scent, I think the main scent is aloe vera which I love. This body mist is priced at £8, which is reasonable it lasts for about half a day before you might need to reapply it.

The next item I bought was the Fizz Barr which I have already tried before. I like the Fizz Bar as you can choose how much you would like in your bath. And as I have mentioned before I suffer from sensitive skin and I don't like to use too much because it can dry my skin out. I think this is also £5 which is amazing, you would probably get 4 or 5 uses out of it depending on how many squares you use at a time.

And lastly, I decided to buy the Soap Opera Bath Soak and Shower Cream. This mainly because I like the scent and I am always in need to bubble bath! I wanted to try this with the Fizz Bar to get the full Zoella Beauty scent in my bath time. This was £5 as well which is very good for a bubble bath, I think it would last for at least a month or two.

That's everything I bought, and I am very excited to use these products!

Thanks for reading!
