NOTD– dotty for dots

Hello! This is just a quick little NOTD, featuring Barry M’s matte polish in Vanilla, which is strangely more of an off-white/lilac shade than anything remotely vanilla. I am a huggggge fan of Barry M so I was ultra excited to try these out. However when I painted my nails using just this polish they looked like this:

100 followers giveaway ^___^ [CLOSED]

Hello lovely people!

Ahhhh! Around the date that my blog turned 3 months I noticed I was two bloglovin followers away from the big 100 and I was so shocked, I mean I know everyone tends to say the same sorta generic stuff but I genuinely couldn't have imagined 100 would be reading my views and experiences (and rambles!) and I couldn't be more thankful - blogging is just the kind of hobby I needed and the fact that I've met some truly wonderful girls in the process only makes it more of a pleasure ^_^
So the prizes for this giveaway are:
  • 2 Revlon Nail Polishes Minted and Blue Lagoon
  • 1 MUA Eyeshadow palette 'Ever After' Matte Palette REVIEWED HERE
  • 1 Calvin Klein Eyeshadow in Tangelo REVIEWED HERE
  • 1 L'Oreal Paris Colour Infaillible shadow in Tender Caramel
  • 1 Rimmel Moister Renew Lipstick in Funtime Fuchsia
  • 1 iPhone 5 case

I am so sorry that this is not an international giveaway, but as it is my first ever giveaway and I'm a student(with a not so huge budget) this one is UK only. However I promise my next giveaway, whenever that may be will be international for sure as some of my personal favourite bloggers live overseas so it's upsetting that I can't include them.

Rafflecopeter is below – winner will be announced on WEDNESDAY 11TH OF DECEMBER so get entering and GOOD LUCK! ^_^

E.L.F Haul

e.l.f haul

I just could not resist a 50% off haul from e.l.f…mainly because in their last one a lot of the things I wanted were out of stock, and I always rave about their 50% off because everything is such brilliant value! Yes some things can be a little hit and miss but the majority of the time I do a quick google search of fellow blogger’s reviews and if a particular item is consistently being rated negatively…clearly I’d not waste monies on it :) My favourite line is the studio one without a doubt, but I adore the mineral line’s lip products – they can do little wrong!

Review | MUA – 'Ever After' Matte Palette


mua matte palette

Hello lovelies!

I’ve been meaning to post this review for a while, but I’ve been so disorganised with taking photos and what with the clocks going back and less sunlight I need to start planning ahead more! Not complaining about the cooler weather though - sweater weather is better weather tehe

Review | Ben Nye Banana Powder

ben nye

This has been a favourite of mine for quite a few months now, infact it’s become the kind of product that I find myself thinking ‘how did I manage without this before when doing my makeup??’ and most certainly if I had to pick 5 items from my collection to keep forever, this would be on that list!
