I Heart It

Recently I've been loving looking through photos on We Heart It. I found this one and I think it's totally me. I wanted to share it with you. 

I think everyone should always wear your invisible crown. If you have ever seen the movie A little princess you will know that every girl is a princess. I also love this models hair. 

Do you have any quotes or pictures that inspire you?

She said beauty October

I love getting a beauty box but this month was such a let down. I came extremely close to cancelling next months but thought I'd give it till December. 

Here's what I got. 

Cellnique advanced bio renewal masque, B.liv off with those heads, Herbacin wuta kamillie hand cream, Biao beauty rejuvenating night cream, Palmer's coco butter and a packet of Myvitamins. 

The only thing I can really tell you I am happy to see is the hand cream. The rest I'll try but I can't say I'm overjoyed. I really don't like the Coco butter it literately took me a few weeks to get rid of the bottle I bought I might give that away. 

When I first received my box the B.liv off with those heads had leaked all over. I had to clean up all the other packaging as it was all sticky. I email SSB about this and they sent me another B.liv sample out. Their customer service is fantastic. 

Did you get a she said beauty box? What did you think of this months?

Essie Cute as a button

I got this while on holiday this summer and it was my first Essie polish. I think this is my all time favourite. That is a very big statement to make as I'm a die hard OPI fan. I pick this up as I had left half of my holiday polish's on my bedside table at home. After the utter panic of thinking I had lost them all I decided to buy some more. I love everything about this polish, the bottle, the formula  the colour, the stay power and the brush. I've heard a few people on blogs have said how the formula of Essie polishes have changed. This is the new one as I have Essie Mint candy apple and it is no where near as good as this one. 

I had this on my nails for a whole 7 days and it didn't chip at all. I was so impressed. I used nail envy as a base and Essie shine on as a top coat.   

This was just after application. 

This was after 4 days application. I really think it is the best for long lasting. 

Have you used Essie before? What do you think?

Moroccan Oil Treatment

If you asked me this time last year that my favourite hair treatment would be an oil I would probably of laughed at you and said no way. I really didn't like any idea of an oil at all. However this is amazing. My hair was in good condition when I started to use it but it is like red carpet hair now. Well maybe that's an exaggeration. But my hair really does feel so soft and smooth. 

When I bought this all those weeks ago I hadn't actually heard that much about it. My hairdresser told me it was good and you only need a tiny bit to work. That was about as much as I knew. I ordered the 25 ml bottle from look fantastic and I thought it was pretty expensive for hair care. At £12.85 it is worth every single 1285p. When it arrive it really was tiny though. I'm not sure what I was expecting for 25 ml but the box seemed really little. I love the colour and the glass bottle it sits really nice with my other products. 

Just a little taller than a Mac Lipstick. I apply this to damp hair after I've come out the shower I towel dry my hair and use my tangle tease and brush through. 

I use a tiny bit. It's really all you need to make your hair smooth. I noticed on the first application how much it made my hair silky soft. I wash my hair every other day. I used to use the oil every other day too however I've found the best way is using it every other hair wash. So every 4 days. 

Have you tried this?

Night out on the town

On Friday night I headed up to Newcastle for a few drinks. I had pretty much thought all week about what to wear and thanks to Catrine at Unnakednails I decided on this outfit. 

Sorry for the concentration in my face here. 

I wore my trusty M&S shoes again. When I know I am going to be doing a lot of walking on a night out these are my shoes of choice. I actually have shorts on but I guess you can tell as i have my bag covering them. 

And here's my face. I have OPI my private jet on you can see my swatch here. My lips I had a mixture on of my Revlon just bitten in Crush Brguin and Mac Ladybug on top. 

Hope you had a good weekend too. Roll on the next one as I can feel this is going to be a long week at work.

Feel good Fridays

On Friday I finished work like normal and had full intentions on going to M&S to get some food in for the weekend but Boots literally forced me into their shop I am holding them 100% reasonable for these goodies. 

When I pulled up at M&S I saw 3 for 2 in massive gold and red letters and thought well it wouldn't hurt to have a look. Well it did.  

The Garnier moisturiser is actually a repurchase. I used this while on holiday and my family ended up loving it too so it was all gone by the end of the holiday. It doesn't exactly last 7 days but it does make your skin feel silky smooth. 

Stay Matte Rimmel London. I picked this up in shade Silky beige. I've never really used any of Rimmels make up. I bought this instead of buying Macs mineral finish. Hopefully it'll do the job just as well. 

Collection 2000 concealer. Everyone in the blogging world raves about this. I don't actually need a new concealer but I really wanted to try it. I got this in medium.

L'oreal Super Liner in Black crystal. I haven't used a liquid liner in years and a few weekends ago when I was getting ready to go out I got an urge to put liner on my lids and my Mac gel liner has dried up. 

Revlon Just Bitten in Crush Brguin. I actually wanted the L'oreal lippy that Cheryl Cole wore on last weeks X Factor but of course it was sold out. This was a pretty similar shade. 

I picked up 2 Real Techniques brushes. I got the Setting brush (pink one) for my highlighter and the lash-brow groomer as this morning when I was getting ready I really couldn't of done with one. 

Have you used any of these products before?

Instyle Benefit

Morning ladies,

This is just a quick post to remind you that in the UK InStyle goes on sale today and they have Benefit freebies!! 

Instyle mag November 2012 Benefit Freebies

Yes that's right! Benefit!! I love Benefit so much and I am a big fan of the Sun beam it featured in my September favourites that you can see here

I am 100% going to pick up the Cha cha tint I've been dying to try it but at £24.50 a pop it's not cheap and if I don't like it I've kinda wasted £25. However InStyle cost's £3.80 so I'll be trying that one for sure.

Will you be picking any up?

September favourites

Wow this year is flashing by so fast. I'm really looking forward to October, it's my little sisters birthday. I can't wait for a night out. (Hint hint Emily!!)  

Here is what I have been loving this month. 

Stippling brush - This is the life saver of brushes. I have been using this to buff my Mac sculpt cream in. 

Benefit Sun beam -  Along with my Mac sculpt I have been using this to highlight my cheek bone and arch of my eye. I wasn't sure about this when I first got it but I have been using it everyday recently. 

Besties dry shampoo - Does this need an introduction? I work full time and lets face it I do not have time wash my hair everyday. It takes 1 and half hours to wash and dry my hair so by doing it every other day I am saving hours of my life. 

Morrocon Oil - This is amazing I have nothing but fabulous things to say about this oil. It makes my hair feel so soft and just luxurious. You only need a little amount. 

Naked 2 - I got this as a gift in July which I was so grateful for and this has been to my go to eye make up this month. I really feel like this is the only thing I need to create a smoky eye or an everyday look. 

Have you tired any of my favourites? What have you been loving this month? 

Birthday OPI's

Saturday was my 22nd birthday I had a lovely day. I went out for lunch with my sister and a friend and we went into town to have a few drinks after. I got some lovely presents and want to show you the OPI polishes I got. Altogether I got 8.

All the colours as you can see are pink. I think my family know me a little too well. 

I got the Minnie mouse collection which I was so happy about. I love all the colours and painted my nails 'I'm all ears' straight away. From L-R I'm all ears, Colour of Minnie, If you moust you moust and Nothing mouse about it. 

L-R Nail Envy, And this little piggy, Miami beats and Pedal fast Suzi.

It's safe to say that I won't be needing to buy any more polish for a while and expect a few NOTD. So thank you so much to my family for spoiling me! 

Which one would you like to see first?
