AUTUMN/FALL FAVOURITES!


After summer, the next best season for my has to be Autumn! I love the feeling of being cosy and warm inside with a nice cup of something warm!

20121112-225405.jpg

And there’s a few things I always make sure I have in the colder months!

A hot drink, and for me that has to be a gorgeous Chai Tea Latte! Whenever I go out, I always get one! To be honest I’m not fussy about where from and I’m not a Statbucks junkie so anywhere that sells it, will have me in there! I love spivey food (OBVIOUSLY! I’m Asian) and so having a coffee drink with a bit of something different in it.. Really warms you up!

20121112-224335.jpg
** During the winter months, coffee shops release seasonal inspired drinks, so don’t be afraid to try something new!

A shnuggly night suit! If you know me, you know I love my night suits and I found THE BEST night suit in the world from Next (A UK retailer) who have this AMAZING night suit in their collection at the moment! It’s warm, fussy and looks so nice!

20121112-224433.jpg
**Avoid cotton in the colder months! It’s just not shnuggly enough!

A clean and cosy environment always helps to make you feel a little better when you’ve spent a hard day in the cold! For me, Autumn means getting some autumnal warm bedding, throwing on a few more cushions than usual in my bed and making sure everything is in its place! So when you come home from a hard day at work, your bedroom is cosy, warm and fresh!

20121112-225409.jpg
** Don’t try to start tidying your whole room within 1 day! Take it step by step and rather than stressing yourself out with a time limit, use it as a therapeutic method to de-clutter and de-stress your room.. And mind!

Changing my make up to autumnal colours always helps! I put the hot pinks and bright blues away to use darker and deeper shades! I love plum, dark brown and for a flash of an acceptable colour, lilac! Changing your nails really helps to spice up the whole look!

20121112-224734.jpg
** Lilac is a colour you can wear all year round so if you love your brights just a little too much, don’t be afraid of some purple loving!

The wardrobe also takes a dramatic change! I love colour, but the wearing bright yellow just makes me feel weird when it’s freezing outside! My colour for this years fall time is OXBLOOD! Red is my favourite colour and I love any shade of it! I think no matter what your age, race and where you live, oxblood is your perfect colour for autumn!

20121112-225124.jpg
** Start layering with your items! Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and materials cause that’s really fashionable at the moment!

MAC Haul!


Thought I’d ease myself back into blogging with a MAC haul from perhaps the best products I’ve EVER got from MAC!

20121110-160122.jpg

I went to the MAC in Harrods, which is my favourite MAC that I’ve ever been to! A lot of MAC there! PHEW!! Lets just get into it!

The first things that caught my eye were these brush sets they had! I loved the packaging and pink bristles from the ‘advance’ collection caught my eye! I love all the brushes in both of the sets and although I’d never tried the duo fibre brushes from MAC, but they’re fantastic! They’re lovely and soft and I think the travel size of them, the pack and brush collection are FANTASTIC! Good value for money!

20121110-160145.jpg

20121110-160133.jpg

20121110-160128.jpg

20121110-160141.jpg

20121110-160137.jpg

I’ve also never tried a cream blush my MAC either, but I really wanted to try Posey because it is the perfect autumn colour! I love the texture! I think it reminds me a lot of the Illamaqsua consistency though, so if you like MAC, but find it difficult to get there, ASOS.com sell internationally and they stock Illamasqua! Posey is a gorgeous warm red which has a real brown tinge to it! Looks lovely on any skin I find!

20121110-160150.jpg

20121110-160155.jpg

I’ve been a lot more bolder with my lipstick taste recently and I wanted to embrace that, but for the days when I’m feeling for a nude colour, Cosmo is perfect! It’s an amplified finish and so has extremely lovely pigment and is that perfect pink nude for those days when you’re feeling like a natural beauty.

20121110-160204.jpg

20121110-160215.jpg

20121110-160232.jpg

For the days when I’m feeling exuberant and I want to have bold lips, Dubonnet shouted to me! It’s a lovely deep red but again with a brown tinge to it and I think it’s compliments Posey! If you don’t want to wear it full on, you can wear it sheerer like I have on in the picture below!

20121110-160222.jpg

20121110-160227.jpg

20121110-160236.jpg

20121110-160240.jpg

OOPS! Well worth it though!

My adventures in Paris!


So after a restless night as I am ill, I woke up in the morning to the beautiful British sun shining on my face! It’s time to go PARIS!!!!

20121015-174522.jpg

I had already packed the night before and all I had to do was get myself ready! So after Miss A. arrived, off I went to the airport and we boarded the plane!!

20121015-174537.jpg

It was such a short plane journey (they’re the best ones) and we had such a laugh in the plane, planning all the stuff we wanted to do and see!

20121015-174808.jpg

When we got to the airport and saw the rain, we knew exactly what we were in for during the weekend! However, it looked so much like London it was like being home! Home from another home.. PERFECT!!

20121015-175232.jpg

However, then we started driving and heading towards our hotel and I was soon proven wrong! France is exactly how it looks like in pictures! It’s so vintage and classy and.. FRENCH! It was brilliant!

The weather perked up and we decided to freshen up and head to a nice little restaurant (brasserie ;) ) where we ate some lovely food and off we went for an evening of adventures!

20121015-180219.jpg

What can I say about the Eiffel Tower at night other than WOW! I was in awe at the size and structure of it! It was amazing! I even managed to see it in all it’s glory with the lights on!

20121015-174607.jpg

It’s easy to say that at this point during the night an having been on our feet for 14 hours, we were shattered and so we had perhaps the BEST hot chocolate we’ve ever had from a nearby cafe and headed off home for a lovely hot shower!

20121015-174627.jpg

After a lovely nights sleep we then woke up and left the hotel for a VERY RAINY Paris! It was still pretty even in the rain, unusually enough! We ate a yummy breakfast at a brasserie called Saint Augustin and we left for Opera!

20121015-174659.jpg

After we reached Opera, we saw there were NO shops open on a Sunday! My clothes, head and feet were soaking wet at this point and I wanted nothing more than a nice dry pair of shoes and a cup of tea! Miss A. and I then headed to Champs-Élysées where the magic happened!!!!

20121015-174730.jpg

There was some amazing shops down that stretch of road and we got all of shopping from there because it was so amazing! I’ll have to do a whole post on the things I got because they were amazing!!

20121015-174740.jpg

The train journeys and the metro held the best times for me and my cousin! It was so funny to sit in the train and we were laughing about everything! We came to realise that everything in French sounded so much better! However, why are there door handles on the trains??? They’re not automatic :O that’s crazy to me!

20121015-174757.jpg

All in all, France was AMAZING FUN! We had so much fun and saw everything that we wanted to see! French people are so classy and they’re all so fit! They’re very active and it’s definitely the city of love! I couldn’t put a number on the amount of kissing I saw!

Enjoy some snaps from my journey whilst I rest up from my crazy weekend! I loved spending time with the wonderful Miss A! She was the best person to spend time with!!! I LOVE YOU BILLIONS!!!

20121015-180052.jpg

Thank you for having me Paris!

20121015-174643.jpg

P.S. Look at what my dad had waiting for me on the way back home! He’s so sweet!

20121015-174859.jpg

Beauty Haul!


The title says it all! There’s a lot. So lets get cracking!

Sally Hanson Miracle Nail Thickener

So this I got, because my nails are EXTREMELY BRITTLE! I’m talking about.. Shampooing my hair and my nail will break off mid-nail! It’s awful! I couldn’t deal with the pain any more and I went to Superdrug in a huff and with my finger in a band aid to hide the shame! Lol! When I saw this I thought it looked brilliant! I’ve used Sally Hanson nail polish before for ridge filling before a good manicure! This says to test it for a month and I did so.. The results weren’t AMAZING and if I’m honest very hard to tell! However, I do feel as though my nails are slightly stronger. They still flake a bit as shown in the image however, generally, they haven’t broken in around a week or two so I’ll keep using it! For the price I paid for it, I’ll be patient!

20121010-180927.jpg
Sally Hanson Miracle Nail Thickener £9.69

Rimmel London I HEART lasting finish nail varnish in double decker red

The colour of this polish is FANTASTIC! I’ve been into reds a lot this month and I’m LOVING this colour! It’s a complete dupe of a colour I had manicured on me around a month ago! The colour was OPI- thrill of brazil and I think this is exactly the same! The finish is really glossy and it looks beautiful for any time of the year! However, although the polish is shiny, it doesn’t last very long at all! The polish chips in no time, even with a base and top coat to protect it :( for the price though, it’s brilliant!

20121010-182203.jpg
Rimmel I HEART lasting finish nail varnish in Double Decker Red £2.99

Ruby Hammer Recommends Beauty On The Go

Some of you may have seen my male up collection where I have TONNES of Ruby hammer recommends products! Ruby Hammer is a make up artist who made her own brand and I LOVE her products! The pigmentation and price are perfect! This palette is definitely perfect for on the go and is such a good size that I think I might take it to France on the weekend! There’s a wide range of eye shadow colours and some lovely coloured lip glosses with a handy mirror too! I would however, like some matte colours because they were all shimmery and I would probably like Ruby Hammer to be available more easily! I don’t see it in every Debenhams store, which isn’t very handy! Plus, I got it at an AMAZING price!

20121010-181117.jpg

20121010-181121.jpg
Ruby Hammer Recommends Beauty On The Go £4.20

Ruby Hammer Recommends the Professional Beauty Case

This is AMAZING! I not only love the packaging and think the make up train is lovely but the make up inside is gorgeous! I didn’t expect to receive what I did when I ordered online! The train was on sale on the Debenhams site so thought I’d pick it up because I liked the storage solution and obviously I like the make up! The box surprised me completely! The box consists eye shadows, lipstics, lip glosses, nail varnishes, blushes, palettes and a whole manicure and pedicure kit! Everything a girl needs in the morning! The products are lovely and the presentation is too! Lovely!

20121010-181723.jpg
Ruby Hammer Recommends the Professional Beauty Case £31.50

YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31

This lipstick was my splurge of the month and I’m not disappointed! It’s the perfect colour to spruce up any outfit and I think it would flatter you, no matter what your skin tone! The lipstick is also long lasting and the colour can be built up or sheer! But the shine of the lipstick is perfect! A good dupe is Mac Impassioned (not as much of a shine)

20121010-180922.jpg
YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31 £23.50

Sleek Shangri- La palettes in Supreme and Respect

These eye shadow palettes are some of my about items from Sleek Make Up! I think the pigmentation of the eye shadows and the colours are fantastic! I love the way they created two! Choose the respect palette is more warmer tones whilst the supreme palette is blue toned! There are a variety of colours to chit any look you want to go for! I got both because I couldn’t choose! I might be using some of the colours as blushes if I’m not brave enough to wear them on my eyes.. Multi-tasking.. WOOPEEE!!

Clothing haul!


I’ve been going shopping CRAZY recently and have picked up a few things that I feel I’ll be able to keep forever with me even when I move to Birmingham!

I went to TK Maxx and found nothing that I liked and again with Dorothy Perkins, felt the same way! The clothes hall section will start from River Island as I found some lovely pieces there today!! I don’t usually shop in the sale rails but today I think I found some lovely bits!!!

Lets begin!

The first thing I noticed was this AMAZING dress! I love the beading on it an the cut is FANTASTIC! I love intricate beading and the style of this dress is beautiful! The colours are y favourite and I loved it as soon as I saw it!

20121005-184351.jpg
I love the dangling detail and the cut at the bottom of the dress!

20121005-184356.jpg
This dress was £80 originally but £30 in the clearance sale in a size 8

The next top is a crop top that caught my eye! To be honest, I actually got this TK wore to bed because I think it’s a lovely material and I like it for the hotter nights! I get BOILING hot at night!

20121005-184439.jpg
I love the studded detailing on the shoulders too!

20121005-184446.jpg
This crop top was £7 in the sale and I think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next piece is a speckled too in one of my favourite colours at the moment! I think it looks great with any get up and to be honest, ill be tucking it into a maxi skirt for a pop of colour!

20121005-184519.jpg
I love the speckled detailing and deep wine colour!

20121005-184528.jpg
I got this top for £5 and think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next thing is a blazer style jumper which wasn’t in the sale section but I love it! The jumper is a knit material but has 3/4 sleeves in a wet look! The material is super comfy and although not warm, adds a touch of something different to the outfit!

20121005-184535.jpg
The sleeves are a wet look but not a stiff leather.. PERFECT!

20121005-184541.jpg
The blazer was £35 in a size 10

The next buy is my best pick of the bunch! I’ve been looking for a pair of winter boots for a while and when I saw these I HAD to grab them! They were lying in the shelf all by themselves so I picked them up! They are a lovely mid heel boot in a very simple leather! They are SUPER COMFY!

20121005-184547.jpg
I love the shape of them at the front and the ankle length of the boots makes them very functional!

20121005-184556.jpg
These boots were £7.50!!!!!!!!!! Reduced from £35 and they’re in a size 5.

HAUL!


Recently, I had a little accident and was feeling a little bit sorry for myself! (nothing serious.. I think) I decided the best cure was.. SHOPPING!

I got this for £5 at the market! And it’s silver!!!!

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!

20120827-215732.jpg

SHOES.. Of Prey!


20120824-141903.jpg

If you read my previous posts, you’ll know I have an obsession with SHOES!! I was reading daily mail
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2186436/Steal-Victoria-Pendletons-red-white-blue-shoe-style-180-pair-heels-design-yourself.html

When I saw these shoes, I obviously went mad for them! I went straight on the website and was in awe of their class! They do some amazing shoes!

20120824-141135.jpg
Wedges £180

The idea behind it is that you get different staple shoes that you can customise! You can choose your own style, colours and textures with any shoe you choose! This is definitely one for those people who can’t find find a pair of shoes to match their outfit.. The solution.. MAKE YOUR OWN! I’m thinking of making a few staple shoe designs in colours I think are terrible to find! E.g. A sexy black pair, a perfect nude and an all rounder to wear with everything!

20120824-141131.jpg
Heeled Oxfords £210

They also do worldwide shipping, so there’s need to worry about that! Topped with the fact that they do half sizes too, I’m sold!

20120824-141140.jpg
Sandals £100

The shoes are a bit more pricey.. The oxford heels I have shown cost £210 but if you make your staple designs, you’ll definitely get your wear out of them! I haven’t tried them for comfort just yet as I haven’t purchased a pair but am looking for an occasion where I can create my own pair!
