Halloween Lace Mask

I thought I'd try a completely new Halloween look, instead of just trying to better my one's from last year. I had seen photos of girls painting lace masks on to their faces and it really intrigued the artsy side of me. I thought I'd at least give it a try!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Nude-ist'

I have been on the hunt for that perfect nude lipstick, so far to no avail. I went to Superdrug, H&M, Accessorize, and even MAC! Just nothing seemed to catch my fancy. I seemed to be in one of those 'never satisfied' moods; I mean if you can find a lipstick at MAC to make you happy, then give up. Fortunately, I decided to try one more store before giving it up as a bad joke. Boots was my saving grace; especially with their offer of '3 for 2' across the makeup section.

I picked up the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, as it's something I've seen pop up on the internet form time to time. I thought I'd give it a try as I had nothing to lose; and lots of bloggers said that it is a genuinely good product.

Festive Cranberry Face Mask

I feel that the older you get the more you anticipate and look forward to the holiday season. There is just such an indescribable feeling when Christmas stuff starts to appear in store displays, and I must admit, I start to go a little mad. To me, holiday season prep begins in October. I'm not starting my official holiday gift shopping until nearer to the end of November, so I popped into my local Lush store to get a pick me up. There was so much holiday stuff there that I went a bit mental just smelling everything. I picked up a couple of things, but I want to focus on one item in particular. 

Essie Nail Polish in 'Cozy in Cashmere'

I went looking for a new nail polish that was nude or a bit toned down for this season. I recently had to cut off all the tips of my nails as they were too damaged through peeling and breaking. I usually go to Barry M, but there was nothing there that was calling to me. So I need up in front of Essie, which I wouldn't usually buy unless it was from Tk Maxx.

Chocolate Coated Toffee Apples

Toffee apple season is upon us! I am not a huge fan of the traditional British toffee apple, but when I was in Disney World I tried one of the Mickey candy apples and...it was love at first bite! I thought I'd combine the tradition of a toffee apple in autumn, but with the Disney flavours.

You will need: Apples Dairy Toffees/Caramels(Uk/US) Skewers or lollipop sticks Chocolate

Cheetah Halloween Makeup

The second part of this years Halloween series. I kept flip-flopping between having this post focusing on either chocolate-caramel apples (!!) or halloween makeup. I get so much enjoyment out of halloween makeup so that greatly influenced my decision.

Top Picks from Holiday Haul!

I  bought a ton of beauty products on holiday in Florida; I could stock a drugstore beauty aisle. I have enough makeup to keep me going until my next trip in 240 DAYS!!! I wanted to share with you all some of my favourite products that I purchased. There will be a mix of exclusive to the US (or very hard to get in the UK) and normal products that can be found at the likes of Superdrug.

My Little Pumpkins

I'm not going to lie; I've started my Halloween festivities already. I have an electronic pumpkin sitting on my desk flickering away, and the scent of Yankee Candle Candy Corn is in the air. To me the approach of Halloween signifies the beginning of the lead up to the winter holidays. The cold nights are creeping in, hot chocolate must be on hand at all times, and tartan scarves are EVERYWHERE! I live it!

Sephora Green Tea Fiber Mask

Since my return from the States, my skin has taken a turn for the worse. I've started to notice spots forming along my chin and nose, which makes me feel all 'bleugh'. I used to suffer quite badly with spots when I was younger, so any occurrences make me feel like I'm back to being a spotty twelve year old. Honestly, not a good point in my life. I thought I'd use this time to try the Sephora Green Tea Fiber Face Mask.

Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Susperia

I'm not gonna lie; I bought a lot of makeup over in America. Many of the next post will involve products that may only be available in the States (to my knowledge!). I went to the Sephora in the Florida Mall and they were nearly cleared out of all the shades of the Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, so I had limited choice. That's not to say that I'm unhappy with what I picked(in fact, I really love it), I was just disappointed a bit.
