Monthly empties....

Can't believe October is over and we're into November now!! Time for October's empties:

Make up:

* MAC brush cleaner - Always a repurchase, I love this stuff. And a bottle does actually last quite a while
* Jemma Kidd I - Glamour volume mascara - Not a mascara that I'll be repurchasing, I liked this at first but then the more I used it the more I started to not like it as much. It flaked as the day went on and I ended up with panda eyes on a number of occasions
* Benefit That gal - This did nothing for me unfortunaltey, it did smell amazing though
* Benefit The porefessional primer - I like this primer but didn't love it, not one that I'd repurchase
* No7 Shine free primer - This is the best primer I've tried so far and I think it's one I'll repurchase time and time again
* Revlon colorstay foundation in 180 sand beige - The only foundation I'll ever wear, love it


* T-Zone nose pore strips - I really like using these, they definitely unclog pores
* Kleenex Facial cloths - Love love love these. Some people might think they're just cotton wool, they're so not. The size is perfect if you want to remove all of your make up in one swipe. I like to tear them into four so I get four times as many. They're just great, I definitely recommend giving them a go
* Superdrug Tea Tree peel off masks - One of my favourite face masks, review coming up but these are something that I'll continue to repurchase
* Superdrug cucumber cleansing wipes - These are part of my everyday skincare routine. I love the smell and they leave my face feeling fresh and clean
* Skinology (Wilkinsons brand) Tea tree cleanser - I've just repurchased another bottle of this. Whenever I have spots this seems to dry them up within a few hours


* Batiste dry shampoo in Tropical - The only dry shampoo for me, and the tropical is my favourite. I reach for this on the morning I need to wash my hair (If I don't have time to wash it until that evening) and my hair looks fresh and smells amazing
* Avon naturals shine drops - I can't say that I noticed my hair to be any softer or shinier after using this. I think I'll continue to buy the Avon dry ends serum instead


* Original source lemon and tea tree shower gel - So many people rave about Source shower gel, and I just wasn't impressed at all. It smelt divine however it didn't lather up at all which is a must for me
* Imperial leather sublime star flower and pomegranate bath cream - Love imperial leather bubble bath, this one smelt so nice

That's all for this months empties

Weekly favourites....

As you may be aware I haven't been around much lately and there wasn't a weekly favourites post last week, however I'm back.

* MAC 'Innocence beware' lipstick -  I haven't been wearing that much make up these past two weeks, apart from mascara and a bit of lippy. The lipstick that I reached for literally every day was MAC's innocence beware. I love this lipstick! Such a perfect nude and with it being a creamsheen, there's no need for a gloss

* Godmother soap from Lush - I LOVE the smell of this, it actually smells good enough to eat! Not that I would eat it because that's just gross......

* Umberto Giannini Glam hair rock 'n' roll extreme hairspray - I'm not usually one for hairspray but I wanted my hair in a neat bun last week and I always have fly away hairs (basically I look like I've stuck my finger in a socket) so I sprayed some of this on the sides, and my hair stayed in place all day.The best thing about this is actually the smell. If it wasn't weird, I'd actually wear it as a bodyspray :P

* Random one: Pink lemonade lucozade - This stuff is heaven in a bottle. If you haven't tried it, then go buy a bottle! It's delicious!! 

So my faves were a bit random this week :P

I'm back....

Just a short post for now.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting for the past week and a half. Unfortunately we lost someone very special in the family and the last thing on my mind was blogging. I had pre-written some Halloween posts, however when I've actually logged on to post them they hadn't saved. Starting tomorrow, I shall be blogging as usual again :) (I don't think I could use the words blogging and post any more if I'd tried!! :p)

Borrowed from google

Thanks for reading :)

p.s I'm now addicted to pinterest so feel free to follow

Weekly favourites....

Time for the ol' weekly faves again:


* No7 'mink'
* Soap and Glory 'Vanilla'
* MAC 'Mystery'
This has been my favourite eye combo this past week


* Carmex 'original' - I love this stuff. I had two cold sores so put a dab of this on, and the next day they were gone!
* Urban Decay 'Vinyl' - This looks so scary in the tube, but it's actually so pretty! Perfect colour for Autumn. And I love the packaging!


* Crown C139 - Great for blending
* Crown C321 - Great for creating an outer v
* Gosh velvet touch eyeliner 'truly brown' - I've enjoyed using this on my tightline when I wanted a smokey effect, and didn't want to line my upper lashline. Love these liners

As of tomorrow I'll be posting Halloween posts every day up until Halloween. Make up looks, costume ideas, nail designs and more, so keep your eyes peeled.....not literally because that would hurt :P

Loving the leather....

FINALLY I have found and fell in love with a leather jacket. I've been wanting one for months, and anyone who knows me has probably hated every shopping trip we've been on because I've been so picky when it's came down to choosing a jacket I like. However, I have found 'The one' :D

£30.00 from Peacocks. I love it <3

What kind of shopping trip would it have been without picking up a teeny bit of make up???

From superdrug and a little make up stall:

* Gosh velvet touch waterproof eyeliner in 'truly brown' £4.99
* Sleek eau la la liner in 'venom' £4.99

* Essie nail varnish in 'to buy or not to buy' £1.99

So I'm pretty excited about my new purchases, especially the jacket :D And the sleek liner, had my eye on it for so long and I think it's a perfect colour for autumn!

Thanks for reading :)
