Christmas comes but once a year, and so does your Birthday!

Just a little post filling your guys in on my Christmas/Birthday, as a lot of you know my birthday is on christmas day, so I have two things to celebrate at this time of year. I had a lovely Christmas day, had my nan and step granddad over for Christmas dinner, after dinner they stayed for a little bit longer before setting off home leaving us to relax. Spent the rest of the day watching Christmas tv and chilling out with my parents. On boxing day we literally watched the movies we all got for xmas back to back, then today we took the girls out for a little walk. Once back I had a lovely christmas themed bath with some gorgeous Lush goodies and I am now doing some designing for Vibe Clothing. 

Has everyone else had a lovely Christmas?

Dear Diary ...

I have been so naughty recently, as I have just not blogged in so long. I just feel like I have been so busy, and when I've not been busy I have not felt myself. After breaking up from uni last week, I have been non stop designing. I am looking to launch a new line of t-shirts in the beginning of 2012, I am in the middle of sorting out models and photographers, but I would really like to do a shoot around Oxford then one maybe in London. So my focus has been majority on doing this, and my ladies.

Apart from designing I have just been up to the normal stuff, friends, cinema, nights out and shopping. Nothing overly exciting. I have been working a little more too, just to get a little bit more money, and as I am hoping to increase my contract come new year. Other then the boring normal stuff it is of corse the lead up to Christmas. I really can not believe how fast this year has gone, and yes I am another year older come Christmas Day, just a tad depressing.

Hows everyone else's holidays going? All prepared for Christmas?

P.s. Oh also have a question for you lovely ladies, I having problems designing a font on Photoshop, does anyone have any tips? or sites to buy for a brand?

NEC - Clothes Show Live

The one bad thing about this post is I forgot my camera on the day, and dropped my iPhone which resorted in the screen smashing, so was pretty hard to take pictures while I was at the Clothes Show, but I thought you lovely lot might want a nose at want I got my hands on as the show.

The first thing I managed to get my hands on when we got there was some Models Own, we all got a little to excited when we saw there massive stand at the show. The deal they was doing on the day was buy 3 nail varnishes for £10 and receive a free goody bag, I quickly grabbed the colours above, Pink Lady, Black'n'Red and Aciiied. The goody bag was really good that you got free, must be worth over £25 as you can see in the photo above.

My other favourite bargains are the Illamasqua products, they had an amazing offer of any three items for £10, so I picked up a couple of there cream blushes, which normally retail at £16 and a pure pigment too.  I have only really used there lip gloss, which I wasn't really a fan off, so I'm pretty excited to try out these bits.

I also managed to stock up on Carmex, at the beginning of the day they had the offer of 1 for £2 or 2 for £3. But after thinking about it when walking around, I came back they was selling them all off for 2 for a £1, so I got tonnes :).

On the way out of the event after we had watched the catwalk show, which I must say was brilliant, lots of hot topless male models, is there anything bad about that? We all went to a bag stall which we had saw when we first came in, I ended up buying the bag above, which is a small backpack. I had seen some really cute studded ones about on 'WeHeartIt' and Tumblr, so quickly grabbed this one. I then started too stud it last night, unsure whether to add a few more though, or maybe even some spikes.

All in all it was a really nice day, bar smashing the screen on my phone. Got to see lots of great make up,  fashion and accessory brands, and also the gorge Kirk from TOWIE. 

Did anyone else attend the Clothes Show, What did you make of the day?

This is not a music blog but ... Top Tunes

I know not everyone is interested in the same music, but being a lover of all different types I thought it might be interesting for you guys to see what I have been listening to the most recently. This are my must have tracks, that to be honest I have had on repeat for the last couple of weeks. I hope there is something for everyone, and you find it a little interesting :)

Kelly Clarkson - You Can't Win

This is probably my favourite song at the moment, as for her album. I have always been a fan of Kelly Clarkson. She's got an amazing voice and her songs are always so catchy. If you like 'Mr Know It All' you will love the rest of her album too. This song is one of the up beat ones of her album, and I just love the lyrics they are just so clever.

You Me At Six - Crash

As in my last post I had to include a little You Me At Six, I just love this song, it is off there new album. Which I must say is really good. The song is a slower one of the album, but yet again the lyrics ares just lovely. And Josh's voice is just dreamy.

Jason Derulo - It Girl

Now for abit of Jason, I had never really listened to his music before, but after downloading his album, it was soon on repeat. Such a good party album, and some really good songs on it. This is possibly one of my favourites on the cd, but there are lots more really good ones.

Bruno Mars - Runaway Baby

Yes a bit of Bruno, he is my guilty pleasure. Even though there are a few odd songs on his album that really aren't to my taste. There is a handful I really like, and this is one.

Four Year Strong - Sweet Kerosene

I've always liked FYS but never been a major fan of them, as my heart lies mostly with Set Your Goals. But after listening to there newest album, I have fallen just a little in love with them. Its quite different compared to there older music, but in a good way for me. I think its because it sounds a lot more professional.

Long time due!

Yes, I've been so lame for the past couple of weeks. The first week I had a hand in, so was at uni till late and panicking about my work. So this week, being a nice and chilled out one I have just not wanted to do nothing, I just really haven't been motivated to blog at all, I did record two videos, the first one I hated my hair, the second one was to long to upload, so I just gave up on that too. 

So this post is just a few little clips on what I have been up to :)

Hows everyone else week been?

London Christmas Blogger Meet

Saturday just gone I was lucky enough to attend the London Christmas Blogger Meet, which was kindly organised by the lovely Emma and Laura. It was held in a cute little bar near Piccadilly Circus, so after getting there ridiculously early I had a little wonder around the shops close to the venue, without realising I can not afford anything in the stores. 

Once in the venue we was lead downstairs to a lovely christmas decorated room, in which lots or people started to show up. As we all took a seat I was lucky enough to be surrounded by PujaDaisySusuanaHelen and Amy. When we was settled we had the great privilege of talks from Anna at MaggieAngus, Faye at Wired Jewellery and Sarah from Lush LTD, which I will so a separate post on each of the speakers later this week. Once over we was then handed so many goodies, which made me feel utterly spoiled.

All in all it was a lovely day, and for my first blog meet up I couldn't have been any happier on how well it was, and love meeting some lovely ladies too.

How was your first blog meet up experience?

Emerald City

This is just a little post to show you my new nail varnish addiction, it is the gorgeous Emerald City by Models Own. I was after this a while ago when Models Own had there 50% off sale, but it was unfortunately sold out. After waiting what seems like ages I finally got it on ASOS as they was doing 20% off so it was a bargain at just £4.00.

I just love how thick the glitter is in this polish, it's all I've been wearing since it popped through the post box. I have used Top Turquoise by Models own as a base coat so that the colour is more vivid. Another great thing about glitter polishes is that it is so hard for them to chip. The only bad thing is it is a nightmare to get off, as you get covered in glitter afterwards.

Whats your favourite nail craze? or got any great tips of getting the glitter off hassle free?

Mini Make-up Binge

Matt lipstick in Mystic, Blush in Sahara, Blush in Flamingo

I have been quite sensible recently when it comes to buying make up products, but after seeing that Sleek are 3 for 2 in Superdrug I just had to take advantage of it. I ended up getting these two blushes, Flamingo and Sahara. I also picked up another one of there Matt lipsticks in Mystic. I really love the Sleek lipsticks, the colours are so vivid and they are such good quality.

I also got my Eylure Double Lashes through the post from ASOS.com and they are just gorgeous, I really can't wait to wear them. I also grabbed another pair of the Natural Intense lashes (145) as these are just gorgeous too.

What are your favourite lashes?

Just Another Beauty Box

So after cancelling my subscription to Boudoir Prive last month, it left me a little dosh to subscribe to another one. I had seen a few post floating about on the Feel Unique Beauty Box and after having a nose and a read, I quickly decided to go with it.  

I was really please with my first box, there was just so much in it, and in all honesty, its things I will use. My favourite items are defiantly the sample of Prada - Candy, I just love this perfume, and so nearly bought it last month but held back as I have to many as it is. But it is great to have a little sample to use up now. I also love the Bella Pierre shimmer powder, I got a gorgeous gold/green metallic colour, and can't wait to try it out.

What beauty boxes are you babes signed up to?

Oh Yeah Baby!

Just a little post to make a monumental moment for me, this ladies is my first ever finished textile design, and I must say I am a little proud of myself. I had never used Photoshop before and after just three weeks of learning (only 2 days a week) I am finally beginning to get the hand of it. 

It is just a test one for our first project, as we are creating a border to then take to the print rooms and to start using Devore and Screen Printing. Hope you guys like it :)

The real loves of my life.

Just a random post of my little babes, I have been trying over the last week to get some nice pictures of them, but being puppies they just never stay still. I've got the odd one, but only when they are on there own, and I would love a little cute one of the both of them. But I think thats just going to be impossible. 

Had a really nice evening on Saturday also at my friends Lauren, there was lots of food and fireworks, and some lovely mulled wine. Yum yum yum.

Also are any of you lovely lot attending either the London Blogger Meet or Handpicked Media Social this month?

Jibber Jabber - my first video

So after thinking about making a video for a long time I have finally got my butt into gear and done one. I was going to start of by doing a nice and easy October Favourites, but then as it is my first video I thought I could throw in a few all time favourites too, along with many awkward faces.

Would love to hear people feedback, whether its good or bad, always nice to know.

Its all just a phase

I go through phases sometimes on what I buy, like I will buys tonnes of make up, or too many bags, but at the moment its jewellery. I just can't stop, these are a little selection of ones I have bought in the past couple of weeks that I am yet to wear.

I got all the Jewellery by Design ones from New Look, at bargain prices, some where half price while other cost only £1.00. I got the Beetle ring from Matalan and was only £6.00, I fell in love with it straight away, its just too cute. And as for the spike earrings they are from ASOS, and also for £6.00, just think they are gorgeous.

What phase are you going through at the moment? Or am I the only one who does this?

Emerald Black and Aqua Violet

So I recently purchased these little beauties on ASOS.com, I love the whole collection but was sensible and just bought these two as I thought I would wear them more then the other colours. I bought Emerald Black and Aqua Violet, I love both of these a little to much.

The colours are so intense and the shimmer to them is just gorgeous, perfect for the winter. To go with the gorgeous colours they are also long lasting, I've had it on since Wednesday, and only a couple of little chips on a couple of nails, and this is with no top or bottom coat either.

I will definitely be looking at the rest of the collection when it is back in stock, to maybe be cheeky and get a couple more. 

Have you got your hands on any of the other colours in the collection, what would you say is your favourite?


Thursday, 3 November 2011


Just a little catch up for my dearies, last weekend as you know it was Halloween weekend, I went out with Danielle and Victoria just to 02. Then the rest of the week I have just been at uni and doing some little crafty bits at home. 

As for that I have also started my Christmas shopping, and successfully nearly finished. Along the way I have treated myself to a few bits too, along with these MAC bits, which i'll swatch and review later one.

I was also debating doing a monthly favourites video, but still a little unsure about videoing myself, would anyone be interested in watching it?

Day of the Dead

After seeing these beauties on lush.co.uk I couldn't wait to pop in a get a couple of bits. I was only going to get one of the bath bombs but after a natter to the shop assistant I ended up getting some of the Lady Catrina soap to try too. The sent of the halloween collection is just amazing, smells of lime and lemon which is just so refreshing, and as you can tell I am extremely excited to have a nice relaxing bath with these goodies this evening.

While I was in Lush too, I had a gander at the Christmas collection, but there is just so much of it I just can't decided what ones to try, so I defiantly recommend having a nose in there at the moment, so many lovely new products to try.

It's all about the blush

MUA - Shade 6, Sleek Blush in Pomegranate, Mac Shimmer Tone Blush in Breezy 

I only realised the other day while applying my MAC blusher that it was quite similar to a couple of others that I had purchased the last couple of months. The first one I find is quite similar to is Shade 6 from the MUA range, retailing at only £1.00. This shade is  a little darker and more pink undertones then MAC's Breezy, but for a fraction of the price you can't really complain. The other blush that comes up close to MAC's is Sleeks blush in Pomegranate, this yet again had slightly more pink undertones then Breezy and yet again compared to MACs price of £17.00, the sleek blush comes in at a dead cheap £4.99. 

Even though each of these blushes are great shades and two are extreme bargians I would really recommend the MAC one, as they are just amazing, they have a great shimmer to them and also last all day.

What other brands do you recommend? 

So as you can tell I've been back to blogging a bit more recently, and I blame being very ill. I've been to the doctors twice already this week, and not to uni at all. One of the good things about being ill and off uni is spending my days with these little buggers, they look after me and give me cuddles to make me better.

Poudre Visage

I've had this product for a while now, and hadn't even opened it. I purchased it on ASOS.com for I think it was just under £8.00 in the sale. The packaging is just gorgeous, as are all of Paul & Joe's products, plus the little compact is just to die for too and comes with a mirror. I really like the colour/tone of the face colour, and makes the perfect contour kit.

What do you think of Paul & Joe?

Sunday Rambling

Today has been a proper lazy Sunday for me, all I have really done is a little bit of painting and cuddling Honey and this little beauty Foxeè. I have got the excuse that I'm not very well, and pretty close to my voice being completely gone. 

Saying that it was extra nice not going out drinking last night, like I have for the last three weeks. Instead Lauren, Chloe and me went to a late showing at the cinema to see 'Real Steel', which was really good. We didn't get out the cinema until 1.30am and ended up running to the car pretending to be fighting robots, I blame the tiredness. 

So now its nearly Monday again, which means back to reality, and to try and focus a little more on uni. As last week I really wasn't feeling it at all. I really enjoy uni but recently i've been having second thoughts of whether its the right thing to do? Or does everyone feel that at one point in there uni years? 

Hope you beautiful lot have had a lovely weekend? What have you been up to?

Not For The Easily Offended

This book is possibly one of the best books i've bought in a long time, offensive crafts, does it get better then that. I've always been a fan of cross stitch and anything that can make something a little more fun is worth the time. 

The book is full of great one liners, pretty flowers and hearts. It also has an A to Z in cross stitch in the back so your able to come up with your own great inventions. The one above is one I copied out of the book, but since messing about with the different patterns and letters. I'm starting to make my own individual ones, I think there great to frame and dot around your room. 

Sorry this post is a bit random, but I think its great to include some different things on blogs that are not just fashion or make up related. 

What quirky crafts have you gotten into recently?
