NOTD: Swirls

I was sorting through my nail polsih collection last night when I came across a box of nail art pens that I have hardly used. Poor little nail pens, lying there all forgotten... So naturally, I had to use them. This is the result.

Haul: Makeup Revolution

About a month ago, I posted a Makeup Revolution wishlist, and I am very happy to report I have purchased a lot of their lovely products.

Review: May Glossybox - Superdrug 50th Anniversary

For weeks Glossybox has been dropping hints about a big collaboration for the May box, getting everyone excited because collaboration boxes are usually awesome! 

When I heard Superdrug was the collaborator, I was surprised at first but then I realised just how iconic a retailer Superdrug is; for me, and maybe a lot of you too, Superdrug was the place where I bought my first pieces of makeup and is still a shop I can't walk past without having a little browse.

So let's see what Superdrug has picked out for us this month:
5 full size products + 2 samples, which is always nice.

NOTD: Inspired by Jessie J "Ice Queen"

I had another exam today, and painting my nails the night before an exam has become a bit of a ritual for me these last few weeks, so that means it's time for another NOTD post!

Haul: L'Occitane

Recently there was a sale on the L'Occitane website and since I love their products but can't usually justify paying their higher prices I thought the sale would be a good opportunity to try a few things.

NOTD: Green Reptilian

I'm halfway through my 2nd year uni exams, so I've been busy revising almost solidly from the moment I wake up in the morning until I go to bed, even taking flashcards to work with me. I was feeling pretty stressed out, so I decided to take an hours break and do something relaxing, and here's the result!

The green shatter pattern I've used here reminds me of a lizard's skin, then I added a touch of chunky green glitter which also has a scale-like appearance.

NOTD: Silver and Black

After receiving my lovely Ciate haul, I could not wait to try out the gorgeous shiny, bright silver - Fir For A Queen. I know they aren't the brightest of colours, but silver and black are probably my favourite colours, for makeup, to wear and on my nails too!

More Holiday Buys!

I like these two purchases too much not to share them with you quickly. They are quite different to one another and represent very different elements of my personal taste.

First up, rhinestone covered skull. Dark, creepy but also a little bit flashy. 

So, turns out the five year old version of me still lives somewhere in my brain, because I couldn't resist buying these little cuties. They can now be found clipped onto my bedroom curtains, making my room just a little bit more girly...

Packing For A Holiday

Just found these photos I took before I went on holiday of the makeup and beauty products I took with me. I know I've been home almost a week now, but I thought I may as well still show you the essentials which make it into my travel bag.

NOTD: Blue and Gold

Sorry for the lack of posts recently guys! I have so many posts planned and half written lying the draft section waiting to be finished but I am really busy revising at the moment. My first exam is a week today so now is the time for some serious cramming! Anyway, here is a quick post about... nails!
