December Favourites!

I suppose I should start off by saying I hope you all had a good christmas. I had a very chilled one! My family doesn't really celebrate christmas, never really have, so I can't do the whole "look what I got for christmas" thing. But this year I decided to make a roast dinner (from scratch) all by myself. My mum doesn't cook any meat in the house with her being a vegetarian and all, so I have never had a roast dinner cooked in my house. I've had the pleasure of eating them before just never cooked them. I think it turned out pretty well to be honest. My cousin even said that the Yorkshire puddings were better than frozen ones! *Go me* Just need to perfect the art of gravy making.

I did have a gathering with my friends for christmas so that was jolly! Had LOTS of food and drink! It was very fun just chatting away and joking around. We also had a few awful cracker jokes! As some of you may have seen on my instagram. Appalling as they were, it's apart of the Christmas festivities.

So lets get on with my monthly favourites…


Skin care:

There are two products that I have been loving this month, the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask which I purchased this month but I have been absolutely loving. I will write up a more in depth review for next month but for now there is a noticeable difference in my skin.

Next is more of a body care item, that's the Soap & Glory Breakfast Club Scrub. I had heard a lot about Soap & Glory products so I decided to get the body butter and the scrub, I'm not too sure what all the fuss is about the body butter but I love the scrub.

Make up:

My Makeup Forever HD foundation has been a major favourite this month because I have been taking a lot of pictures this festive season. My cousin got married so I needed a non flash back foundation and this is perfect. If you've read my blog a bit you know that I love using brushes for makeup but I decided to try using my fingers for this foundation and its so velvety that it blends much better with fingers.



This one is going to be the same as last month … The Weeknd Trilogy, it's literally been on a loop non stop. I'm surprised that I haven't gotten sick of it because I usually would do when listening to things non stop like I have with this.

Well that's all for this YEAR! Can't believe that 2012 has finished, it's definitely been a year of change but next year I hope to realise a lot of hopes and dreams with a lot more hard work and even more positive thinking! I hope all of you have a safe and blessed entrance into 2013! Here's to an amazing year to come and more beauty-licious discoveries! Peace & Love Gorgeous people!

NARS Taos!

As some of you know I bought a couple of things from NARS a month or so ago. The blush has featured in a past favourites but I haven't actually spoken about how much I do love it. Now, this is my second NARS blush, I don't think that I'm going to start collecting them. They are amazing but I feel you can equally get the same quality products from the high street. But here I am sharing my love about this product (may have to balance the books and share some of my favourite high street blushes ^^).

There are so many rave reviews about the infamous NARS blushes like 'orgasm' and 'deep throat'. But the others kind of get left out and they are just as amazing! My recent purchase of 'Taos' was attraction at first sight. The colour of this blush was one that I hadn't seen before and with that in mind I had to have it.


It's a perfect colour for this time of year where deeper more amber blushes tend to get used. It's got flecks of gold shimmer in it, which gives a lovely glow to the skin. Obviously the packaging is amazing and sleek, the ultimate love of NARS products. The pigmentation, of course, is amazing. And as with all NARS blushes a definite tap should be given when the product is first picked up with a brush. I find that it lasts all day on me. My washed out face needs the colour so I notice if a blush has worn off throughout the day, and this isn't one of them.

I think that if you are going to invest in a blush, then there should be something particularly special about it. I think this one was definitely worth the price tag. The quality and smoothness of this blush is lovely but the colour is definitely what make it stand out from the crowd.

New Hat!

Some of you may have seen a 25% off for students on ASOS a couple of weeks ago. This was the perfect opportunity for me to use my friends discount (got to be frugal =D) and get my overdue birthday present for my Dad, a jacket which he has been banging on about for months.

Well, whilst trolling the website to see if anything caught my eye I stubbled across this lovely beanie (unfortunately its no longer on their website -_-). I haven't ever really worn hats, of any kind, before but I thought this was the perfect time to try it. I was instantly drawn to the different coloured wools that it is made up of. It's so warm and is easy to wear for the days when you should have washed your hair but couldn't be bothered (I have them a lot!). It will go with a lot of outfits with the mixture of blue, green, grey, purple and red wool.

It was £10 originally but with my friends discount was £7.50, what a bargain!

The quality is really nice. I just hope that nothing bad happens to it when I wash it. I think this was a good step into experimenting with 'head wear'.

Here's to a warmer head! =)

Do any of you like wearing hats? Where have you bought them from?

How it Feels to Fly!

Strap Top - H&M | Top - New look | Jeans - Topshop | Shoes - M&S

This is such an over due post. I seem to be going out quite a bit lately, which I am totally loving. On Saturday I went out to Clapham with a few friends. It was absolutely freezing, as the recent weather is obviously displaying. With that in mind I wore my trusted Black Jeans to help stop the cold get to me. I tucked into it this leopard print top. I love this top, it's baggy yet flattering all at the same time. I felt like the outfit was missing something so I added this necklace which I got ages ago from New Look.

On the face I went for a bold lip…queue my now trusted Rimmle 107. I can't get enough of this colour! It's so flattering. If you want a full review click here. I just curled my hair with my straighteners and done.

I had a really good night out. In the past it's usually had to take a special occasion for me and my friends to get together and go on a night out, but I prefer going out on those random nights for no reason, just to shake your bum bum. I feel like I'm going backward, thought I would have been over all this by 25 but clearly not =) Makes me feel young either way!

Hope you're all having a good week! P.S Sorry about the poor quality pictures!

November Favourites!

So it's that time of the month that we all share our monthly favourites with one another, Christmas is seriously upon us! Ekk…don't know about you, but I'm excited!! But can't believe November is over…boo!

Let us get to it then:


Skin care:

I suppose this product isn't strictly speaking a skin care product, but a lip care product. If you follow me on Twitter then you will know how much I have been loving this product, it's even got its own post!! If that's not love then I don't know what is. If you want to see a full review definitely go and check out my rave

Make up:

This month I haven't really been wearing a lot of eye shadow, the same as last month I suppose, but what I have been loving to do it using just my Inglot shadow in "54" (AMC), which is a warm brown with flecks of gold and lightly brushing that along my crease to define my socket by itself. That along with lashing of mascara

Which cooly leads me on to my next favourite, the No.7 extravagant volume mascara. I've used it a few makeup posts and if I'm honest I didn't really like it when I got it. That's because it was quite thick and would clump my lashes, which was a shame because I loved the brush. But after having it a while, it's calmed down and nicely adds volume and separates my lashes.



This is a relatively new programme that's come to our TV's. I first heard of this programme when I was in America last year and we visited Warner Bro's Studios and we got to see the set at which they film. It's such a funny programme with whit and innuendo. If you haven't watched it and you want a laugh then definitely check it out.


There is only one music LOVE this month! The Weeknd released his Trilogy album which consists of all three of his past albums. I already had his 'house of balloons' album but I was anticipating this album. If you like R'n'B then I suggest you listen to this album, it's such easy listening. His voice is amazing! There is just something about it.

No 7 Skin Illuminator!

I've had this 'No7 Skin Illuminator' for quite a while (bought with those amazing £5 off vouchers). I bought it after the brilliant Lisa Eldridge mentioned how good it was, I mean anything that amazing lady recommends should definitely be tried.

Bad Points:
I was so excited to use this product, I got it in the 'peach' tone because my skin a very yellow (they also do it in a 'pink' tone for those who have pinker skin tones). I went to try it the next day and it would not dispense! The applicator is a brush, so you push the tube and the product should peak through the brushes for you to blend in. The brush, personally, is rubbish, I would much rather use my fingers.

On top of that, when you do squeeze, which within itself is a task, you get far too much product out! You can't even get it back into the tube. *sigh* So I drastically chopped off the brush bristles so I could get to the hole (hence no picture of the applicator). It was still a little difficult to get the product out, so this product got left in its place for a rather long time…

Good Points:
…until recently. I decided to pick it up and try it once more, and low behold the product is coming out as I want it *smiles happily*. I don't know why it has decided to work properly, but if you want it then I would suggest decanting it into a tub or something that is air-tight.

I can honestly say I know why Ms Eldridge suggested this product. It gives the most loveliest sheen. I've been using it on the tops of my cheek bones for the past week or so, I feel like my skin has been looking rather dull so I've been trying to get it to 'shine' again.

It's a liquid formulation. It blends seamlessly into the skin. I use my middle and ring finger to dab it on. I powder the rest of my skin to get rid of all the unnecessary shine I don't want as I have oily skin. From the picture you can see how the micro specs of glitter pick up on the light. I assure you it doesn't look like you've got glitter on your face when you wear it.

£11 (but they always have money off vouchers) for 30ml.

For the winter months it provides the perfect skin pick me up. I probably wouldn't repurchase it unless the packaging changed, and to be honest, this is going to last me for a very long time. I know that No.7 have redesigned all their products so they may have improved this fault. I would definitely recommend going to see how you find the tester in store.

Have you ever tried this product? What do you think of it? What cream/liquid highlighter do you use?

Lover of Light!

Top - Boohoo | Jeans - Primark | Boots - New Look
Eyes - Estee Lauder palette 'Gold'; NARS 'Surabaya'; Sleek palette 'Brown'; False Lash Effect Mascara | Cheeks - No 7 cream blush limited edition 'Blossoming Pink' | Lips - Revlon 'Peach'

Firstly I would like to say HELLO to all my new friends ('followers') that I have recently joined my blog after Sunday's #bbloggers chat on Twitter! It never ceases to amaze me how amazing this blogging community is, thank you!! =D

Now on to the post...Today I went to see my gorgeous sister-in-law (my cousins wife) 2 weeks before she is due to give birth. We both have been busy for a long time to meet up and finally we both have time for some tea and biscuits! I thought I'd just share my OOTD and FOTD.

Can you tell that I need a new camera, or a tripod! Excuse that faceless picture.

It was just a casual afternoon and I wanted to be comfortable. I recently got this jumper from Boohoo and I am in love! I was skeptical about the quality when buying it but loved the print, but when I got it I was so pleased! It's soooo soft and warm! Perfect for these colder months. I got mine in a size S/M and it's quite baggy on me, but that's what I like.

The boots are really old; like 2/3 years old, but they are a solid pair of boots. With a decent heel. I always prefer wearing heels when they are in the form of boots because you have more stability! No more tripping around!

I just went with a simple gold eye and a nude lip. Nothing too outrageous.

Hope you all had a chilled day!

Purple Thunder Storm!

Finally, another make up post. I don't know how many of you really enjoy reading such posts, but I sure do like doing them. I just had the urge to do a purple smokey eye. I find that purple is such a lovely colour to wear if you have brown eyes. With the festive season truly here, this would be a great evening look. Now let's get to it…


I just used my MUFE HD foundation all over the face and down my neck. Used my well loved MAC studio finish concealer in NC42 to cover my blemishes and bags. On the tops of my cheeks I used Illamasqua's powder blush in 'Create'.


I primed my lids using Urban Decays primer potion. Then applied the Avon supershock eyeliner in 'Plumful' to the inner half of my lid to intensify any colour that I put on top of it.

Using a flat eyeshadow brush I packed my Inglot shadow in (the purple) '446 Pearl', (sexy name ;-)) onto the inner half of the lid, where the eye pencil was.

Then using the other side of the brush I packed on NYX shadow in 'Sensual' and placed it on the outter half of my lid. I dragged any excess underneath the eye.

Using a pencil brush I picked up, what I have labeled as, (3) from my sunset sleek palette and lightly placed it along the crease of my eye to add a hint of warmth to the eye.

Using my Inglot shadow in (the gold) '405 Pearl' I placed the colour on the inner corners of the eye to draw some light in.

Finally I thinly lined my upper eyelid with the Collection (2000) Extreme Eyeliner in black, used my Avon Super shock eyeliner in black in my waterline and applied my No.7 Extravagent Volume mascara.


I just smudged in this No.7 lip liner in 'Melon'.

And there you have it. Now looking at it I may have smudged some black shadow on top the liner that I did and maybe dragged some black underneath the eye as well, but it just depends where you are wearing it. Hope you guys liked it! =D

It's official, I'm quarter century, contrary to what that 21st birthday card says…definitely don't feel it! Only hits me when I say it out loud. This post should have really got published over the weekend, but I have just wanted to chill out on my birthday weekend after a very fun night out on Friday.

I really wanted to share a proper picture of what I had worn on the night out, but that was a complete fail! My friends came down to my house and we headed out from here, but in true fashion we were running slightly late.

I wore this dress from Boohoo. It's got a lace centre which shows off a bit of skin. I bought a size 10 and the fit was perfect and it was £20, I know I will definitely wear this dress again. I wore my M&S black bow platform shoes. For jewellery I wore my new (birthday present, below) Jade stone ring from Accessorize, my peace ring from Boots and another ring that I can't remember where I got it from. My earrings were from Topshop in their sale last year.

For makeup I done a gold 'smokey' eye with red lips, using my trusty MAC viva glam I. I was going to leave the makeup at the eyes, but something was just missing. When I put the lip on it looked complete. On my nails I wore my Inglot polish in 955 with a Revlon glitter (340 Stunning) as a topcoat.

My friend and I were celebrating our 25th's together, his birthday is a week after mine, and we decided to go to a club called Guanabara in Covent Garden, it was such a brilliant night! I literally danced the night away, from 11.30pm - 3.00am with a 15 minute break! I'm going to say that this was my best birthday celebration, ever! It was such a good turn out, so a massive THANK YOU to those who came!

I've tried to use the best picture from the night but unfortunately my camera decided to die (even though it was fully charged!) so I've only got 28 photos in total, most of which are not flattering in the slightest. Below are a few gifts I received from my friends.

Hope you all had a good weekend! =)

Blue Jeans!

Top - Forever 21 | Jeans - ASOS | Boots - Aldo

Let me start by saying I've been splurging a little this week. I'm celebrating my birthday tonight (I'm soo excited) and in obvious fashion I was trying to find the right outfit for the night. I have now decided what dress I am going to wear (post will be up over the weekend) out of the three dress purchases I made. I also bought these Cobalt Blue jeans from ASOS! I am in love with this colour! It's so crisp and bright!

I had been eyeing these up for the past two/three months (not exaggerating) and they went down from £28 to £19.50 (unfortunately they have gone back up to the original price)! There was no way I was going to let that discount go after lusting after them for so long!

I was skeptical as to the sizing, but they fit perfectly. I wore them out yesterday and paired them with a chunky burnt orange knit. I didn't know what would go with them because they are so bright, but I think these two went well together.

I'm so excited about this weekend! Can't wait to share my birthday celebration pictures with you! =D

Hope you all have a good weekend!

This post is gong to be an utter rave. I am loving this Blistex MedPlus pot. I have been using Carmex for the last probably 4 years, I loved it when I first applied it, the slight tingle and my lips looking cared for. But after the third tube of it, the magic had somewhat disappeared. I don't know if this is just because my lips got used to it or it no longer worked for me, but I knew it was time for a change.

I definitely wanted to try Blistex as a brand because I have heard so many good things about it via YouTube and Blogs. I'm not sure why I was drawn to the tub rather than the tubes but it's the one that I got. All I can say is from the moment that I put it on I have loved it.

It has improved my lip condition a lot since using it. I haven't gotten any dry patches since using this, which, with the weather change is a miracle. I use this morning and night. I don't take it out with me because I don't think the tub is commuter friendly (don't want those manky germs infesting my lovely Blistex). When I have forgotten to put this on my lips in the morning my lips are fine all day, but I definitely notice that my lips are dry by the end of the night. I slather this on before I go to sleep and in the morning I can just rub off the dry skin (sorry, that doesn't sound nice) and my lips are lovely and soft again!

It's got a slightly a mediciney (not a word I know) smell with a mix of coconut (ok, that doesn't sound appealing but it's not as bad as that), it's not offensive and I like it. It was £2.59 for 7grams of product!

I'm so happy that I got this product! If you're looking for a new lip care product I would definitely encourage you try this little beauty!

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?

Rimmel K.Moss 107!

So yesterday was my first opportunity to wear the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 107 that I bought a couple of weeks ago. All I can say is that I love it, even my mum was impressed! I think that says it all. I went out for dinner to wagamama's with a friend and decided I would rock a bold lip.


Obviously it's a matte finish but it's also creamy/velvety in consistency so it doesn't leave the lips feeling dry. I worked it into the lips first with a lip brush, blotted and then applied a second coat straight from the bullet and it lasted all evening, even whilst I ate. It does transfer, so my chopsticks had lovely raspberry kisses on them.

Colour pay off:

The pigmentation is amazing and the price tag (£5.49) really matches! This is my first Rimmel Lipstick (weird I know) and I am definitely impressed with their quality. I find it hard to wear raspberry type colours because they don't really suit asian skins but this one really didn't offend me when I applied it. So if you're olive toned definitely have a look at this product.

Have any of you tried any of the lipsticks from this collection? What have you thought?

Energizing Lotion!

As someone who has started taking their skincare routine much more seriously in the last year, getting this new moisturiser was a massive gamble. But I'm glad to say that I am super happy with this new purchase.

I got this Clarins Daily Energising Lotion (SPF 15) when I went to Bluewater back in August. I hadn't done any specific research but I had heard a lot of good things about Clarins as a brand, so I started browsing and reading the description and ingredients of the different creams they had. This one caught my eye because it didn't have any oils in it *tick*, I continued reading, and it stated that it contained Tumeric. I know that Tumeric is good for the skin and it's an antiseptic, but I never heard of an actual product contain it *tick*. I wanted something that was going to be much more hydrating than my La roche Posay Effaclar, this states that it hydrates *tick*. When I went to purchase it I got three good sample sized products from the same range! *tick*

The lotion comes in an easy pump dispenser, one and a half pumps of this does my whole face. The texture is light and you can feel the hydration when it's applied onto the skin. It has a light fragrance, it gets absorbed into the skin quickly and it provides a good base for my foundation.

It hasn't caused me any kind of bad reaction, so that within itself is a good sign. My skin has felt noticeably softer since I've started using this product and it definitely feels more hydrated.

I don't really have anything negative to say about the product! I could say that they could provide more of the product considering the price tag/quantity ratio. It was £20 from the Clarins counter in Boots for 30ml. After using it for 2 months I've only got half the bottle left *thumbs down*. But other than that I have really enjoyed using it and this being my first Clarins product I am definitely intrigued by the brand.

Have you ever tried this product? What other product would you recommend from this brand?

Super Shock!

I've mentioned this product in a few posts and thought it was obviously about time that I shared how much I genuinely love this product. It's the Avon super shock gel liner. I don't really use this product on the lid but more for my waterline, I don't find I work well with pencils to put eyeliner on.

If you are YouTube obsessed (like me) then you would have heard the amazingly talented Pixiwoo sisters talking about how much they love this product to tight line with. I was a bit skeptical about getting this product because I had never ordered anything from Avon before. So last year I was talking to a friend and she mentioned she had started selling Avon (as a representative). I knew then I would make an order with her, with the Gel Liner top of my list.

But alas, the product was out of stock. I still wanted it, the yearning never went away, so on my birthday day (last year) my friend (the avon rep) gifted it to me (along with other goodies), how lucky was I?! =D I was so excited to use this.

It's a very soft, gel like (obviously) formula. I have very sensitive eyes when it comes to putting liners on my waterline. The MAC smoulder liner, which is lovely, stings my eyes when I use it on my waterline. The Avon one does not, I can't say it will suit everyone with sensitive eyes but for me, I find gel liners don't irritate my eyes.

On the skin it does not budge! The swatch above did not rub off like most other kohl liners. On the waterline it lasts for 5-6 hours. I find that most liners (if not all) don't last that long on my waterline, especially on the outer and inner corners. I tight line with the liner just in the middle avoiding the areas where it comes off and it really lasts.

It's very black! They come in a few colours but if you just want a good black that is like MACs Smoulder then I would definitely give this a try.

£6 (original price; but it is often reduced to half price!)

Bad points:
There is only one thing that I can think of and it's not really to do with the liner. The avon online store only shows what products they have in stock (that's what it looks like to me), therefore when you know they sell a product but they don't have it on their website its a little disconcerting because you assume that it's not coming back. To write this post I went to find the product on the website and I only found that product in a 'cobalt' colour! I don't know if they are still selling this product or not.

If you can get a hold of this product I would definitely give it a go. Espically if you are trying to find a good liner that doesn't smudge.

Have any of you tried it?

October Favourites!


Make up:

I don't have any skin care favourites this month, just a couple of makeup treasures that I have really been enjoying this month. Starting with my Revlon Lip Butter in 'Macaroon, this has been my favourite thing to pop on my lips no matter where I am going!

Next is my NARS 'Taos' Blush, these two products compliment each other so well! I have not used any other blush since getting this NARS blush earlier this month. I can see why people 'collect' NARS blushes, the texture and colour range is very different to other brands.



On to my non-beauty favourites; 'Arrow' this is a new US drama based on the Green Arrow comic. I love this show and hope it gets renewed, it's only shown three episodes but I already like the conspiracy that is the underlying story line. And his abs are truly a work of the heavens! (perv much?! =$)


I've really been enjoying listening to Mumford & Sons new album 'Babel'. They come back with another album with amazing lyrics and amazing bonjo's and tambourines.

What have been your favourites this month! Eeee my birth month is upon us, keep a look out for birthday related posts! Hope you have all had an amazing October! =D

Regretful Purchases!

As someone who loves makeup I'm finding it hard to write this post, because I try to make every product I buy work for me. But these four products I wish I had put a little more thought into when purchasing them, now this isn't to say that they won't work for you, just that they aren't really products I reach for. If you have any of these products, please let me know how you make them work for you.

On to the products themselves; firstly I am going to start with MAC Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation (NC42). This was my first ever MAC foundation. I wanted something that would give me some illumanosity to my face and as a newbie to makeup (at the time) I made the mistake of picking this. Honestly, I don't actually know why they make this as a foundation. I love their Mineralize Powder, but the foundation is thick and definitely needs to be mixed in with a moisturiser. The light reflective particles that it has are very noticeable, so I wouldn't recommend to wearing it during the day. And you can't really wear it in the evening if you are going to take pictures (ghost face galore I tell ya).

However I have made this product work to my advantage and if you have this and don't like using it as a foundation maybe this will help. I use it as a highlighter and I love it for that because it is has the right undertone as my skin (being a foundation) and it's really light reflective. I just get it on a concealer brush and pop it on the high points of my cheeks, gives a lovely dewy finish! But ultimately I wouldn't repurchase that product and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone for what it is actually made for.

Moving on to the next product; my NYX Round Lipstick in 'Femme'. I bought this whilst in America and I admit that it was an impulse buy. I wanted their matte lipstick but the store that I went to didn't stock it. I personally find a problem with the texture of this lipstick, it's very creamy, I say too creamy. I find when I apply it from the bullet the pigmentation that I get from it is uneven. It doesn't help that I picked a super bright colour (orange red) that doesn't really suit me.

I can imagine that this product may work on a lot of people, it's just that it's not my personal preference. I try and use it by getting a bit of colour on my finger and rubbing it on my lips so the colour isn't so strong. But it isn't something I reach for.

Next up are two blushes; the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush (it doesn't say what colour it is. I haven't really used it since purchasing it and it has now actually dried up a tad in the pot (has come away at the sides of the pot). When I bought this product I had acne, so when I popped this on my cheeks, you can imagine that it didn't look good. I think because of that it has just gotten a little left out. It still is creamy, so I may just start using it again, but I am more drawn to using my other cream blushes. I regret buying this product at a time where my skin wasn't at it's best.

The last product is my most recent purchase, the ELF Cream Blush in 'heart breaker'. I would not describe this blush as a cream formula. I would call it a mousse formula which gives a powder finish. I find that the pigmentation isn't that great on this product. It's a bit of a shame because I liked all the other products that I bought. Of course I can make this product work for me and for the price that I paid I'm not going to complain too much, just that if you're expecting a truly creamy product, this isn't it.

Have any of you tried any of these products? What have you thought of them? What products do you regret buying?

Purple And Gold Birds!

Hello lovelies!! Hope you all have a good weekend! Just another quick outfit post this evening. It was another one of my friends birthdays last week so we went out to celebrate last night. Once again the weather was much to be desired but hey ho, we Brits get on with it, don't we!

Strap Top - H&M | Blouse - Primark | Jeans - Topshop | Shoes - M&S
L-R: Boots (Sale) | Boots (Old) | New Look (Old) 
Base Colour: Nails Inc 'Oakley Street', on top: Models Own 'Gold Digger'

I'd just like to say thank you to my friend Wendy for taking these pictures on her swanky camera as we were rushing to leave. As I mentioned in one of earlier posts I went to the new Primark on the Tottenham Court Road. I bought this purple blouse with birds on it. It actually has buttons down the back of it (sorry no pic), they are black enamel ones with gold around them. It was a bargain at £10, I know I will be making use out of it.

I just wore gold jewellery with it. The arrow head necklace was from Miss Selfridges in the sale at £2. I don't remember the costs of the rings as they are old, except for the peace sign one, which was on sale at £2. And on my ears I wore triangle drop earrings from Forever 21 .

For my makeup I used MACs 'Amber Lights' all over the eye lids and used my Estee Lauder Palette and mixed the cranberry and deep purple together and used it on the outer 'V', pulling slightly toward the inner crease. I also dragged it underneath. Just blended it with a fluffy eye shadow brush so all the edges were smooth. Avon supershock liner on the 'tight line' and Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Espresso Ink along the lash line. I used No.7 Extravagant Volume Mascara after I curled my lashes.

On my face I used my MAC Fix Fluid (NC 42), Bobbi Brown corrector (Dark Peach), MAC Studio Finish Concealer (NC42), MAC Satin Finish Foundation (NC42) as a highlighter, NARS 'Taos' on the cheeks, Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and on the lips my Revlon Lip Butter in 'Macaroon'.

I know my friend had an awesome time celebrating, next birthday is mine =O just a month to go!

Anywho…Hope you all have a wonderful week! =D
