January Empties

My first ever Empties post! This is a post that is dear to my heart because if you didn't know already, I am obsessed with finishing up products to justify replacing them. I am so on Project Pan!

Weekender (+Glossybox)

     Time for another Weekender post! 

     Friday saw me chillin at home catching up on Project Runway and having a Twix! ha
I looove Project Runway and I am really against the new judges/mentor for All Stars. I guess maybe they want to eliminate the possibility of bias in the original ones and have a new pair of eyes judge the designers?

I also caught up on some reading. I started When God Was A Rabbit, which I got for Christmas, and while it's different to what I expected, I do like it so far. I also got Cosmo cuz I heart Scarlett!

Lush Review

     Today I'm reviewing a few products I picked up from Lush three weeks ago. I made sure to try them out well before I made any final decisions, so here they are.

Dark lips + MAC dupe!!

     I am so excited about this post because I am really loving dark lips! I first bought Black Cherry #477 by Revlon a year and a half ago and only used it a handful of times. This fall however, I picked up Prince Noir (matte) lipstick form MAC's MAC Me Over collection. I had seen swatches of it on various blogs/videos and KNEW I wanted it.

Golden Eye

     Today I decided to go for a golden-y summer/sunset eye look because, well, I simply can't wait 'til summertime!

Hair Products Rave!!

     So the past two times I've styled my hair I used this product combo, and both times I was thrilled. I know I wasn't fond of the John Frieda Straight Fixation in my previous attempts with it, but I think I've found a way to make it work.

Day Around Londres

     Today was a much needed catch-up day in London with one of my really good friends. We hadn't seen each other in 2-3 months and had so much to talk about. I got a skinny short caramel macchiato from Starbucks for my train journey into the city. Those lipstick marks are from MAC's Offshoot from their MAC ME OVER collection if memory serves me correctly.

Nutri Heat by Trevor Sorbie Review

     I bought this hair dryer back in October and never used this feature until last week :O I know. I was so skeptical about it as the box reads: Nourishes with silk proteins as you dry.

Nail Polish Haul!! (Asos.com, Boots)

     As promised, here's my ASOS haul! I had a couple of clothing items as well but I've returned them, so here's what's left of it: three gorgeous nail polishes!!! You already know Designer, De Better from my Nail of the Day post two days ago. Because of its shimmer, it doesn't go on as glossy as normal colours but I still love it. It's just so sparkly, fun, exciting and party-ready!

Avon SuperShock Max Mascara Review

     I have heard SO much about the Avon Supershock mascaras and the Avon Supershock liners from the Pixiwoo sisters, who use them all the time in their videos. The results on camera looked very good, so when I saw a £12.50 deal on their site for a mascara, eyeliner and double eyeshadow pencil, I could not pass it up!

     This is my very first Outfit of the Day post! We all know how popular these are in the blogosphere and the world of Youtube. I'm very pleased to be doing my first! Right, let's get to it!

Nail of the Day

     Oh my god. My Asos order came in today (so expect a haul post soon!) and I got

Here's one I happened upon today as I was looking for a peachy shimmery nude lip colour after watching missglamorazzi and amarixe 's new MAC haul video.

     Who doesn't love a good window-shopping session every now and then? It's nice to see what's out there in 3D and to daydream a little. Yesterday I found myself in House of Fraser where I spotted these beauts, and I still cannot stop thinking about them! Some are more out of reach than others *sigh*, 
     Here are my current lust-haves:

     As I was passing through the Mulberry section, this cute little crystal frog necklace caught my eye.

New Look Accessories Haul !!


     Haul haul haul! Oh how we love hauls (at least I do)! 
     I have had to resist shopping for the past few months (hence my mini boots hauls and topshop gift vouchers) but I was finally able to splash some cash on some much needed accessories to give my wardrobe a new look. Let's get started!
     First off is this gorgeous yellow 'curvy' bag £8.99.

What's in my (work) Bag?

     So I LOVE "what's in my bag" features whether it be a blogpost or a magazine article (US Marie Claire usually has them on the very last page of the mag n i lurrrrrve 'em) so here's my everyday work bag minus the face powder/blush or lip colour that I'd chuck in depending on my look that day. These are the permanent items. 
     Firstly (clockwise from top left) is reading material. I'm currently still reading SuperFreakonomics because since I've been off work for Christmas and the new year, I haven't gotten much reading done! I usually read on the train and/or tube. Next is the actual bag.

Glossybox Top Picks!

     This is a post I've been wanting to do for ages and finally got around to it! I was over the moon when I got to register for a Glossybox subscription a few months ago and am in love. I've seen reviews for similar brands such as Carmine and the Feel Unique box but I have yet to be convinced that their products are better than Glossybox's! I also have to mention that I haven't yet used my Deborah Lipmann nail varnish remover samples or my Nouveau Lashes mascara because a) I already have four open mascaras I'm currently using and I'm always careful to replace them every four months and b) I'm saving the nail varnish samples for when I go on holiday because it's more efficient! Ha
     Right let's get started, my number one product would have to be the Caudalie Vinosource cream. This is the first cream based product I've tried that actually feels like a serum!

Lush Bath Bombs

     This post is dedicated to my Christmas gifts from Lush! I was given Think Pink, Twilight (my all-time FAVE, it smells absolutely divine) and Satsumo Santa,

What's On My Mind

     As you might've guessed, this is not going to be a beauty-related post. If you are after anything beauty related, I suggest you don't waste your time reading any further. Instead I am going to do a more traditional blog post, a personal one. It's about time as well I think! Ha..
