Weekend Pastel Nails

Firstly, i would like to say hello to my new followers! Thank you so much for following my blog. It really means a lot to me and i hope you continue to enjoy my posts. So... Im really getting into pastel colours at the moment. Well they are everywhere when i go shopping at the moment and i feel they go hand in hand with sunshine and make me feel refreshed. Im getting so excited for warmer weather as we have been teased by gorgeous sunshine recently. I cant wait to wear some denim shorts (without tights) and a pastel coloured top :)  So anyway onto nails: i came back from shopping and had seen so many pastel coloured clothing that it inspired me to paint my nails following the same theme.  (From left to right) OPI: Pink Friday Barry M: Blue Moon Barry M: Peach Melba Barry M: Berry Lilac W7: Unknown  I couldn't make my mind up as to what colour i should do so i decided one of each to create a mash up of ice cream pastel colours :) Hope you like my nails, I'm so in lo

My everyday make up

Hey everyone! I thought i would show you the make up i use basically everyday. Sometimes i like to change blusher or mascara but it does stay the same 95% of the time.

OOTD I Spy Pugs

  Necklace: Accessorize Vest top: Topshop Green top: Forever 21 Cardigan: Home knitted Jeans: Topshop Socks: Topshop Shoes: Primark Bag: Charity shop I stayed in bed most of the day as i haven't felt well but made myself get up around lunch time. For some reason having a good shower, getting dressed and doing my make up makes me feel better for a while until it soon wears off and i feel rough again. I ended up going to Bingo with my Aunt this evening which was so much fun ( a post about my Bingo experience soon). I wanted something that was comfortable and something that i would feel good in. These jeans and cardigan are my safe wardrobe staples and go with so many other items. Also i will be posting a 'Everyday make up' post soon. So look out for that :) Hope you like, thanks for popping by xoxo

Light coverage

Personally i only ever wear medium - full coverage foundation when i go out for an occasion like a birthday or a get together or just a night out. So during the day i reach for light coverage foundations or a BB cream just so it allows my skin to breath slightly. Below are the light coverage products i reach for and alternate between during the week.  *The one i use the most is the Garnier Daily all-in-one BB cream in light* I find it gives me the nicest finish on my skin, and helps it to look healthy and dewy. It has quite good coverage and on a good day i can go out the house just wearing this. It has a slight fragrance to it which is a nice smell but it could be a problem for sensitive skin. I purchased it when it was on offer in Boots for £9.99 and has lasted me around 3 months so far, which isn't bad at all. The consistency is quite thick. Thicker than what i thought it was going to be like. When you smooth it out over your face it thins out completely and seem

OOTD Double Grey

 I really wanted to wear my new skirt i picked up from Primark which only cost £4 (which will be featured in a Haul soon). I decided to wear it with a grey top which was just a slightly different tone of grey. I am really into wearing the same colour top and bottom at the moment. Some people don't like it which is fair enough, i just feel it can look really different.  I decided to wear a long silver necklace to brighten up the grey, which also contrasted with the gold balls that are all over my cardigan. The cardigan is quite long and hits just under the length of my skirt.  You will hardly ever catch me wearing a lot of make up during the day. Im a very big fan of the natural look, but when i do want to wear a bit more i put some eye shadow on. And my hair in a top knot just because i couldn't be bothered to do my hair.

OPI Pink Friday

  So when i heard that Nicki Minaj was bringing out a nail varnish collection with OPI i was a little excited as I'm a massive fan of Nicki. But saying that i only purchased one, which was 'Pink Friday'. I have quite a few OPI nail varnishes so i knew that for £10.50 i was getting a really good quality product.  It did take 3 coats to get the final look that i have pictured below, but with a good topcoat it should stay a good few days. I have also added a glittery accent nail which is also an OPI nail varnish called 'Servin up Sparkle'.  On a whole im very happy and will be using this over and over through out the year :) xoxo

Bourjois make-up

For some reason i have never purchased any Bourjois products. There was just nothing that really caught my eye. Don't get me wrong they are quite popular but just haven't been on my radar. I've seen many YouTube videos and blogs featuring the Bourjois chocolate bronzer and a few of the nail varnishes which did start to get me interested. So when in my local Boots the other day i noticed 3 for 2 on all of the Bourjois stand so thought to myself, i might as well. I picked up the very popular 'Chocolate Bronzer' in the lightest shade of the two available  Boots: £6.99   . . .  So far i have really enjoyed using this product, even though it only has been a week. As i have quite fair skin this is a great contour color for me and something i could use over the whole face to just add some sun kissed look to my face. The smell is so good too :) I also picked up the Volumizer Mascara, in black.  Boots: £10.49 . . . . I am always on the look out for the most amazing

Topshop Ambush Tan Boots

Hello everyone! Ever since i picked up the black Allegra boots from Topshop i thought i would never want to buy any more pairs because i was so obsessed with them. So the other day i was looking through Instagram (which i am slightly addicted to) and saw that Viviannamakeup (check out her blog and youtube)  had uploaded a picture of some new boots so i clicked on it to just have a nose. And i instantly fell in love and said to myself "I have to have them".  £75 Tan, distressed toe and heel effect  Vips both sides of each boot I have only had these a few days so i can't really give my thoughts on if they are comfortable or not. But just wearing them for one day, i was very happy as i did find them comfy and nice to walk in. I think these are great for during the day say if your wearing all black these wold add such a different feel to the outfit instead of black shoes. I feel the distressed look makes the boots that bit more interesting as well as having double
