KIKO make up haul


20130908-142538.jpg

Continuing on with my haul from the last blog post, here are the items I bought from KIKO!

The first items I picked up, were these creamy lipgloss sticks. Very similar to the chubby sticks by way of the packaging and product inside too! I feel as though these last a little longer though. They are glossy and are quite sheer too (which is my favourite combination). I chose 3 colours!

** KIKO pH lip enhancer in 100: £6.50

These individual eyeshadows also caught my eye after I knocked a few over with my bag in the store! I chose colours that I could wear alone and wouldn’t have to pair up with anything else! The are super creamy and pigmented. They all have a sheen or glitter in them but its not chunky and they don’t have a tonne of fallout. These remind me of MAC eyeshadows with the same type of quality.

I then saw these lipsticks and the colours caught my eye! I’ve been trying to use lip products more because I feel like changing your lips can change your whole face instantly! When I saw these colours, I knew they’d be perfect for slamming in my handbag and topping up on the go! They’re lovely pink and brown nudes (can you tell which colours I like?). Although they’re sheer, they’re glossy and have a lovely gold flex running through! They’re semi- sheer and really moisturising with a comfortable application!

** KIKO smart lipsticks in shades: 903, 917 – £1.90 each

I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes! More so, for KIKO eyeshadow palettes which I own a few of already! I remember seeing these on their website and loving the colours but when I actually tried them in store, I was literally left with my mouth hanging wide open! They are the creamiest and softest eyeshadows in the world! I have never felt such strongly pigmented and rich colours in any product before! They blend so well and look so vibrant it’s crazy! I am definitely going to get the other palettes!

** KIKO colour impact eyeshadow palette in ‘Bright Night Lights 03’ – £16.90

When I saw this nail varnish, I was intrigued about how it would look. Whilst I was checking out, I saw this sitting there for £1 and grabbed it! The colour is a beautiful pastel blue with a slight purple tinge. The ‘sugar mat’, isn’t so interesting! It’s really gritty and after having it on for only a few minutes, I knew it wasn’t practical! It’s fairly sharp and feels like super hard sandpaper. Moreover, it looks like your nail varnish has major air bubbling going on, so I’m not too crazy about this but, I’ll hold on to it for the next type I’m carving wooden sculptures!

Inglot make up haul


20130908-140852.jpg

Can you believe, I’ve been shopping again? I went into London recently and saw some lovely little make up bits that I had to grab! Take a look at today’s post where I show you what I got at Inglot!

I popped into Inglot because they had a sale on, on their lip, eyebrow and concealer palettes.. 50% off! I chose their 5 piece freedom system palette and decided to choose only lipsticks as I didn’t really need any other stuff (not that I need more lipsticks, though). These ended up being so creamy and pigmented! They look amazing and feel good too! I’ve tried an actual lipstick from Inglot before and it’s one of my favourites!

**Inglot AMC 5 roundfreedom palette: £3.50
Lipstick refills in shades (left to right): 29, 56, 26, 03, 62- £1.75 each

I then picked up another lip product by way of the lip paint! This is an uber glossy and moisturising lip stick kind of pot! The colour is the perfect nude for me which adds colour and doesn’t drain me out.

20130909-104153.jpg** Inglot lip paint in shade 63: £10

The last few things that I got were nail varnishes! I really wanted some more of the o2m nail varnishes in nude colours that I could always wear! I chose brown and pink toned nudes and they ended up being really nice! I think I’ll enjoy them more in winter though because they don’t seem to look very good with tanned hands.. I have the pink shade (680) on right now.

**Inglot. o2M nail paints in shade: 677, 680- £11.00 each

For all the products I’ve mentioned, you can visit their website here. Their p&p is a little pricey and their swatch colours online are a little off though, so I’d suggest visiting the store for a better experience!

The end of summer..


I love summer!!! And now it’s coming towards the end of it.. I thought I’d show you guys some of the things that I love/ have loved!

I hope you get some inspiration from the things :)

20120915-180722.jpg
I got these bracelets from our fellow YouTuber StyleSuzi! She hand makes her jewellery in your chosen colour! She has some great stuff on her website!

20120915-180738.jpg

20120915-180745.jpg
These 2 bracelets have fantastic colours! I absolutely love how delicate and subtle they are! Debenhams are having a 25% sale at the moment so go in and look at their jewellery because I got these bracelets for £12 each!

20120915-180757.jpg
I was in the garden today with my mum and we were discussing how she wasn’t wearing earrings! (if you know my mum, she’s never seen without jewellery) I was sitting on the grass next to a flower so popped it in her ear and think they look gorgeous! Lovely for a beach or park day!

20120915-180804.jpg
I’m not afraid of animals and definitely not bees! So I didn’t mind snapping this little fuzz ball doing its thing in a flower in the garden!

20120915-180813.jpg
Who says you need a grill when you’re doing a BBQ?? My dad grabbed himself a random wok used for making roti’s, got some corn and we all had BBQ corn on the cob today! It was AMAZING! (The mess in the back.. We’re redecorating!)

Paralympics 2012 London


20120911-003713.jpg

I done a post on the 2012 Olympics and mentioned how all the participants done so well! Then the Paralympics came round.. And I’m speechless!

20120911-003707.jpg

People say that they’re Superhumans and I took that so lightly! I shrugged it off and made nothing of it because I never realised the impact their ‘disability’ had on their lives!

20120911-003727.jpg

When the opening ceremony arrived, I looked the athletes that came in on wheelchairs, with no arms, no legs and some with no limbs at all! And that’s where I thought.. How will these people swim, fight and play? How is it humanly possible to do so?

The first game I watched was Basketball.. Which quickly became my favourite! I LOVE IT! As well as watching it for the Olympics, I’ll keep up to date with it throughout the USA, Canada and GB players careers because they’re amazing! How a player can shoot a ball from a standstill (or sit still), with one hand and LAUNCH it to the other side of the court.. It’s beyond my understanding how they do it!

20120911-003722.jpg

The training they do is excruciating! Not only for athletes who train day in and day out without the help needed of equipment! Remember.. The sprinters on the tracks have to take the weight of their wheelchairs too.. With their arms!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE AMAZING!!!

20120911-004513.jpg

What us viewers and spectators fail to realise is that these people train for YEARS! Not a few months prior. They put their life and soul into their dreams and they don’t stop until they succeed!

These people who have no limbs.. A tragedy which we feel will leave them unable to live their lives normally.. But look at them! They live their lives EVEN MORE! They go abseiling, bun-jee jumping and take part in the worldwide phenomenon.. The Olympics!!

How can a person who has no vision, throw something so far? Someone who has no arms, swim? Someone who has no legs, run? It’s amazing!!!

20120911-003735.jpg

Once again:
To all the staff.. Including my beautiful cousin, Miss. A.. CONGRATULATIONS!!! You worked in the Olympics which is probably one of the most rarest jobs in the world!

To all the volunteers.. Thank you for everything you did to make these games so special.

To all the coaches, trainers and health people.. You made some of the best athletes

But most of all.. To the athletes..

Thank you for opening the eyes of those people who are so naive to think that having a physical problem would limit your dreams.

Congratulations for taking part in a once in a lifetime opportunity.. If you’re in the UK, your one-time dream of competing in the most prestigious event in your hometown.. YOU DID IT!

Well Done for being so brave! You are like no other human on the planet.. You’re truly unique!

20120911-003744.jpg

Next time you see someone in a wheelchair, don’t label them disabled.. They’re not.. They’re able! More than able! They’re incred-ABLE!

20120911-003804.jpg

Shopping haul!


20120827-215725.jpg

It happened and I’m sorry! I needed some retail therapy after a horrible week! Wasn’t in the best of moods so took advantage of an hour I had free to do anything with and naturally.. Chose to test the strength of my card!

At the moment Soap and Glory/ Boots have a sale on 3 for 2 products so I picked up their hand food! I have the larger version which I got in their Christmas romper pack that they did but that’s way too big for my handbag! I grabbed these smaller tubes which cost £2.50 each so I got 3 for £5! This stuff smells great and is not greasy! I hate hands creams which attract dust to your hands like a magnet! But this dries instantly leaving a light and moisturise feeling with a lovely fresh scent.

20120827-215000.jpg
Soap and Glory Hand Food £2.50 for 50ml

Boots are also doing buy 1 get one half price on their make up tools so I grabbed myself some Real Technique brushes! I got the blusher brush and the stippling brush! I’m loving these at the moment and I’ve used nothing else since I got them (future blog post coming up).

20120827-220455.jpg
Blush brush £9.99
Stippling brush £11.99

I then popped over to Accessorize! I love this place! The people who were in their stores are always friendly and their stock is great! You all know I’m a fan of rings so treated myself! I got the black stone ring because I loved the expensive look of it! I find Accessorize rings last AGES and I’ve never had one go green either so I love picking one or two in time for the current trend! The silver leaf one is silver plated! I was looking for a ring to wear everyday when I’m not feeling up to a statement design and this looks elegant, delicate and is a lovely design!
St. Marcasite leaf ring £14

20120827-215250.jpg
Zelda Deco ring £10

20120827-215255.jpg

I also got this lovely perfume from Accessorize! It’s called enchanted and smells divine! A very floral and slightly musky smell but it’s not overpowering and is perfect for day to day (if you wear perfume out as i don’t for religious reasons.. This is just another one for my bed and teddy to smell)!

20120827-215051.jpg
Accessorize Enchanted perfume £15 for 50ml

I love the quirky things in Accessorize and grabbed the mini wipes at the counter! I love strawberry and these were perfect to keep in my hand handbag! They also do cherry ones! Then I saw this notepad and just had to get it! I needed something to take notes on at work and for my blog and this is the perfect size! Not too small so you can’t see but not so big your bag should have a licence!

20120827-215041.jpg
Wet wipes £1.50 for 10 wipes

20120827-215301.jpg
Notepad £5

The bangle is from H&M! I LOVE HAYCH AND EM! Their jewellery sits my scrawny wrists and fingers! I love the way they often do bangles in different sizes! I would love to wear oversized bangles but from most stores they usually go right up to my shoulder so when I saw this bangle, I grabbed it! I love the design, size and the clasp which means I don’t get sore hands from squeezing it on!

20120827-215717.jpg
H & M bangle £6.99

20120827-221340.jpg
If every you’re having a bad day.. Just shop! That’s all I can say!
