Fun for the eyes

I’ve always liked coloured eyeliner ever since I was 12/13 and started wearing metallic blue eyeliner to school every single day. I feel like coloured eyeliner is a lot more fun compared to black or brown. However I will admit that nowadays I wear a dark brown pretty much all the time.


I still love coloured eyeliner though, it adds a pop of colour to a simple makeup look and it is undeniably fun (in my opinion anyway).

The things I bought yesterday


Everything I got! (Well not quite, but these are the most interesting.)


I’ve gotten this product once before and I thought it was pretty good it doesn’t contain mineral oil or petroleum which is really good as neither of those are beneficial to my hair.

wpid-IMG_20131207_094327.jpg So this colour is really cool it is a two-tone purple and teal nail varnish the brand is Rimmel london and the colour is 60 Royal Blue.


wpid-IMG_20131207_093911.jpgWhen I first saw people wearing purple lips I was like “that’s way too much for me”, but I had been looking for a dark lipstick for a while. The reason I ended up getting one was mainly to layer over other lighter colours, but I have tried out alone and its actually not too bad.

wpid-IMG_20131207_093902.jpg Above is a colour swatch the brand is Collection the name of the shade is Scorned.


wpid-IMG_20131207_093942.jpg So I probably haven’t mentioned this but I am a major fan of coloured eyeliner. The first eyeliner I owned was a metallic blue. The one above is a matte blue by MUA.


wpid-IMG_20131207_093600.jpgOlive oil for my hair, so I’m into using natural oils on my scalp, I also use coconut oil.

wpid-IMG_20131207_094242.jpgSo you probably cant see in the picture but the above nail varnish is like a pearly colour which is why it has the name Runway Pearl. I’m thinking to use it as a base and then draw patterns on my nails in black. I’ll be sure to post a picture when I try that out. 

wpid-IMG_20131207_094452.jpgSo I don’t know about you but my skin tends to get alot drier in the winter, I find my self having to exfoliate more often. Its not the first time I’ve gotten this facial loofah and I can tell you that they work really well.

wpid-IMG_20131207_094509.jpgThis is just for keeping my skin moisturised when I’m out and about. 

wpid-IMG_20131207_094532.jpg I got these for my sister as part of her birthday present. It’s kind of a tradition that I get them for her every year.

So thanks for reading like, comment and follow!

Snippets of the month: October

I cant believe October is over already, time flies!

Hope your October has been great, here is what I’ve been up to:

lmg-pic-0221Taking a walk in my everyday autumn/winter boots

lmg-pic-0227When I get the time I like to make my nails look interesting.

lmg-pic-0278My new necklace from Dorothy Perkins it was £10 but they had it on sale  so it only cost me £3! (BARGAIN)

 lmg-pic-0279I decided to buy an MUA nail varnish it cost £1 and the colour is called Plum Noir, its a really lovely dark berry colour. I wouldn’t  claim it as amazing quality but for what it cost I was pleased.


lmg-pic-0280This top hasn’t come out so great in the picture but I got it from a charity shop, not sure if I’ll actually wear it but at the time I thought it was an interesting piece.
