Barry M Nail Paint in 'Vintage Violet'

New favourite alert!
I recently cannot get enough of the Barry M Nail Paint in 'Vintage Violet'! It has been all I've worn for the past two weeks. Vintage Violet is a blue toned plum colour, that has the dulled down tone to it. I find it quite hard to explain. I think it's an unusual colour as I haven't found anything similar to it yet. It's a deep and rich colour; two coats is all it needs to reach full opacity.It's such an autumnal shade; perfect for the dark evenings and dreary weather.

Garnier Micellar water

To be honest, I never thought that I would buy this product! I remember when it first came out I thought it was just 'fancy packaged water for your face.' Now, I have been officially converted to the religion that is micellar water.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in 'Radium'

My current favourite nail varnish. I've been using it to combat the winter blues, as such. The weather here, in my part of Scotland, has been dismal. Rain, Rain, Rain! The temperatures are getting so cold, I wonder sometimes if it is acceptable to just hibernate until spring. This colour acts as a little pick me up to keep me happy until the weather gets better.

Lush Christmas Haul

In case you all have not heard, Lush launched their Christmas products. Only joking! Who doesn't know that Christmas is now stocked; it seems like everyone is doing their Christmas Lush hauls now. I was not really a bath bomb person until I picked up the Fluffy Egg at Easter. Now I'm hooked! I thought that I'd join in with my little Christmas Haul.

Eyeliners? Eyeliners everywhere! - written

Now I won't lie to you guys, I'm shocked to be writing this post. You might wonder 'it's just eyeliner, what's so wrong with that?' A couple of months ago...I had only ever used one type, one brand of 'everyday' eyeliner. Since the dawn of time I have only ever used Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner. Last month I kinda went a bit crazy and snapped up a lot of new eyeliner types to try, after all 'how do you know you don't like it if you've never tried it?' In this post I decided to talk about different eyeliner types, favourite product for each, and how I feel about them.

Bonfire Night!

Happy Bonfire Night!
I love Bonfire Night, mostly because it's like one of the last public 'celebrations' until Christmas. I think after tonight there is just the local switching on of the city's Christmas lights and then...Christmas! Where has the year went?!

Nails Inc Gel Effect in Porchester Square

I picked this up while in a Sephora, in the States. I was one of those buys on a whim, like 'I don't need it but I want it'. My only previous Nails Inc polish before hand had been from a Glamour magazine, which I really enjoyed, so I was ready to try more.

October Favourites

It's been a while since I've done a monthly favourites, and I have to say I missed it. September was a bust with coming back from America part way through, so October was my best time to sit down and write one!
