Manicure Monday | Models Own Velvet Goth in Valerian

After my bad experience with Amethyst from the Velvet Goth collection, I was hesitant to try another so soon. I had a feeling that if the formula was the same I wouldn't want to pick up another bottle, which would be bad considering I have all 5 of them. But I was looking through my polishes for today's manicure and my eyes just kept going back to this gorgeous sapphire blue glitter.

Weekly Round-up #8

Bought:  Candles


I recently found out that Yankee Candles are vegan! It didn't even occur to me to check, I just assumed that they'd have beeswax in them. So, since I've never owned one and have no idea what I'd like, I decided to buy a selection of 15 votives to try a few all at once. I got a really good deal, including shipping they were only just over £18, that's only about £1.20 each. So far I've burned the Vanilla Cupcake and Mandarin Cranberry and love them both. I just know I'm going to get hooked on them now.

Top 10 Vegan Nail Polish Picks For Autumn

I wanted to get this post up last week, but I had a really hard time narrowing down my favourite vampy polishes to just 10. Honestly, I could have very easily made this my 'Top 30 Vegan Nail Polish Picks For Autumn', but I thought that was just a little ridiculous. Here are the 10 nail polishes I'm really looking forward to wearing over the next few months:

Why I Love Autumn

Back in May I wrote a post about why I hate summer, now that we're heading out of summer and into autumn, I thought I would share with you why I love the season so much. There are a million and one reasons, but here are some of the things, that I think, improve once we're out of the heat and humidity of summer.

Manicure Monday | Ciaté - Strictly Legal

After having to miss last week's Manicure Monday post, I was excited to get today's up, so had a look at my new polishes (which I posted about here) and found it rather difficult to decide on which one to wear. But I realised that I haven't featured Ciaté in any of these posts yet, so decided to go with Strictly Legal.

Weekly Round-up #7

Loved:  Dog Sitting

Boots is the brown dog, and Cherry is the black and white dog

My Mum's friend went away for a week and asked me to look after one of her three dogs, he's such a good dog that I happily obliged. He's the same breed as my dog, a Lhasa Apso, and they get on really well. He often comes up here to play with Cherry (my dog) or she'll go down there for the afternoon for a play date. He fits right in here and I didn't want to give him back on Friday.

Autograph Matte Velvet Lipstick | Review

I'm such a lover of matte lipsticks, I love the way they look, the wear time you get from them and the feel on my lips, but the finish is something I tend to keep for the cooler months. With autumn being just around the corner (thankfully), I knew I had to snap up one of the new vegan offerings from Marks and Spencer.

Nail Polish Haul

As you may have gathered by now, I'm a bit of a nail polish junkie, I also love a good bargain, so when the two are combined I can easily go overboard. Here are the nail polishes, and the bargains, I've picked up over the last two weeks.

Weekly Round-up #6

Before I get started on this post I have to apologise; my (new) laptop is in the shop being fixed so I have to write this on my phone. I can't add photos and have no idea how it's going to come out but I didn't want to miss the post.

Wish List Wednesday | Beauty

I haven't done a wish list post in ages, you can see my previous one here. With so many end of summer sales on over the last few weeks, I've found myself eyeing up lots of products that I wish I could buy right now. Here are a few of the things I'm currently lusting after:

Manicure Monday | Models Own Velvet Goth in Amethyst

I first bought two of the Velvet Goth collection a couple of months ago, and have regretted not getting the rest ever since, so when Models Own had another 6 for £20 offer on I snapped up the remaining three shades. The first I chose to wear was Amethyst; this beautiful deep, jewel toned purple.

Weekly Round-up #5

Loved: The Red Arrows

This week Wales held the NATO summit, it was quite the palaver! Streets and schools were closed, we had a huge police and army presence and, of course, there were protesters. Most of it didn't affect me at all, but there were times when it was incredibly loud with all of the helicopters and planes flying overhead. On Friday morning (the last day of the summit) we were treated to a fly over of NATO planes and the RAF Red Arrows. Here is a picture I managed to get. I was very lucky, the sun was so bright that I couldn't see the screen of my camera so I had to just point it in the general direction and hope for the best. I'm pleased with what came out though.

B. Active Day Cream | Review

It seems like I've been on the hunt for the perfect daytime moisturiser forever! I wanted something that was light enough to wear under make-up, non-greasy, didn't break me out, didn't cost as much as a weeks rent, has SPF and a million more things that I won't bore you with. I feel as if I've tried almost every brand I could get my grubby little hands on, so when I saw that Superdrug was having a half price sale on their entire B. range I snapped up both the day and night creams.

Monthly Favourites | August 2014

I can't tell you how happy I am that August is over and done with, not because anything bad happened, simply because it's now September and that means that autumn is just around the corner. I can soon welcome back my favourite nail polish and lipstick shades as well as my favourite clothes. All in all August has been a pretty good month for me; nothing major has gone wrong and I've done pretty well at sticking to my Monthly Goals. Before I continue to ramble let's jump right into last month's favourites.

A short while ago a reader guessed (or knew) the right answer to the competition I was holding. The winner is the lovely Jasmin of the blog Jasmin Charlotte. I asked:

Manicure Monday | Barry M - Fuchsia

Surprise surprise, another Barry M Nail Paint! I do love them, as you've probably gathered by now. The name 'Fuchsia' is the perfect way to describe this shade, and as much as I love the clever names of China Glaze there's something to be said for something as simple as this. You know exactly what you're getting with Barry M.
