Want List #6

Five things I have been wanting this week!

Basically summer has arrived and I have nothing suitable to wear, last week I bought my first pair of jeans in years and then the sun came out so they have since remained in the bag! Here is my ideal sunny day outfit!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. Eau Thermale Avene I have found the small version of this spray an absolute life saver in the heat, so I'm off out to get the big version tomorrow.
2. Oat midi dress I will sneak in and try this one on tomorrow too I think it will be perfect for me over the summer as I hate having the tops of my arms or legs out but I still want to be cool and look summery, also I need to stop wearing leggings!
3. Felicity Sandals Looove how cute these are.
4. Enamel Bee pendant The only bee I want near me.  
5.Pastel Sunglasses These probably wont suit me (don't have the right face shape for nice things like this) but I think these would look really good with the shoes.

Just a very quick post before I put up my want list.
I just had to show you this very naughty cat.
This is my boyfriends cat Oscar, he must have been very thirsty! 

the picture quality is rubbish because I grabbed my phone to take it quickly!

Mood Board #6

Hullo, Hope you have all been having a lovely day! Its really sunny here in Wales (for a change ha) and I never know what to wear on days like this. Some girls where out in strappy tops and shorts but then other people had big winter coats on, so perhaps everyone gets a bit thrown when the sun pops out. I recently picked up some nail art pens (cheapy ones from primark) and have been looking for inspiration as I've never really experimented with nail art. Here are my favourite bloggers nails!
(Late again sorry, maybe I should call them Tuesday mood boards : / )

I Love Sundays

Sunday is my favourite day of the week, such a nice lazy day!
I took a stroll around the shops with mumma, we called in the Range (I need a house to fill it with all the lovely stuff in here) newlook, peacocks and outfit (do many of you have an outfit store nearby?).
I got a few bargains as I'm trying to cut down my spending!
Ive also had a good few goes with the Real Techniques Core Collection brushes now, so as I said I wont be reviewing them as such just posting a few pics and a few thoughts.

The HOLY GRAIL brush, I have my own little technique of using it *I'm a beauty rebel*  I use the foundation brush to apply liquid foundation then I go over that like a maniac with the buffing brush I'm hoping that this way I will make this lovely brush last longer. It also gives me the perfect look and I like to be using the foundation brush for this otherwise it could just be a bit of a spare part.

Soo clean and unused :(

Sorry for the blurry pics, I just couldn't get these right!
Detailer brush, I haven't found much use for this one yet which upsets me a little, its just too darn small! I shall see if other bloggers have given it a purpose and try it out.

 Foundation brush, definitely works best when used with the buffing brush but really works for getting the colour where it needs to be before buffing.

 Contour Brush, I don't really contour *I'm sure I should though* so I have just been using this for blush on the apples of my cheeks and it works really well for me.

Final photo I promise! I hope this post isn't too gushy but I am really happy with these brushes especially the buffing brush well worth the money!

Thursday 17 May 2012


I met up with some friends (Zoe and Nikki) this week it was to celebrate our "anniversary" I  know Zoe from when I lived in uni halls in the first year. We were close straight away and are the only 2 from the flat to still be in contact/friendly. In our second year we needed another house mate so we found Nikki online (after eliminating a few other potentials, like the boy who said he wouldn't be able to pay the rent for the first 4 months and the boy who refused to speak when we first met him).  She was deemed normal enough to meet up with (false advertising indeed!) so zoe and I met her in the local pub and after some awkward hellos were out of the way we found ourselves chatting like we had all been friends for years. So every year since we have met up to celebrate that first meeting. Last year we watched the royal wedding had a bbq and went for a pedalo ride!

Then this year we met up a few weeks later than the anniversary date of april 29th (due to the girls being in work) and as we are all living in different city's we met in Cardiff (nearest to me as I'm ill and they are nice like that) We had the full works in Tgi friday, a huge sharing platter to start and they both had Bugers for mains and I had the jack daniels chicken (loove it) although it was all eaten to quickly for photos!

We then had a wander around town and ended up at the benefit beauty counter in debenhams where Zoe and I had our eyebrows waxed and made beautiful and Nikki bought a bag full of goodies, including the b.right! Radiant skincare by benefit 6 piece intro kit - £10 which Zoe and I also bought as we were so impressed with the value for money, so eventually once I have given this a thorough testing I will let you know my thoughts and theirs too!


I also bought the Real techniques core collection brush set which I will also post about later (though not a review since eeeevery blogger has reviewed these and its pretty given that I'm going to love them!)

Argh blurry

We finished off the day with a Krispy Kreme doughnut as Zoe had never tried one (shocking!)

We got so carried away I only got this rubbish photo!

Want List #5

5 Things I am wanting this week!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


1. I love this dress from Miss Selfridge I think it would be so easy to throw on and look instantly summery.
2. The blog world has introduced me to lip butters I love the sound of these as I always have dry lips and matte lipstick really emphasises this so a bit of balm would be lovely! from other bloggers swatches my favourites are macaroon and raspberry pie but I will probably change my mind when i see them in store.
3. I have so many cute vests and t-shirts that would look pretty tucked into this skirt as a quick outfit and a springy change from jeans.
4. My sister has just bought this varnish in the pinky "adrenaline" which I have stolen to take photos of but I think for me the silvery "ice crush" would go with more colours underneath it and look better on its own.
5. I have seen this idea on a few sites and I love it as I'm terrible for taking jewellery off next to my bed and leaving it loose which then means it gets lost, tangled or forgotten. So I would put this on my shelf next to my bed and keep all my trinkets in it. Its cheap too and I think it looks great as well.

Mood Board #4

A very late mood board (I have had a bad week health wise, but now I'm back and catching up!)
My room in my mums home has some very blank white walls, its a small room with pale bedding and curtains so it needs jazzing up a little here are my ideas!
My favourite is the cross stitch as I want to avoid a wall full of nails and I'm not arty enough for the tree so hopefully I will be having a go!
