To Twitter or Not to Twitter.

So quick question do you guys think I should make a twitter!


TAG: Whats in my purse?


This is just gonna be a quick post, its the ever famous 'Whats in my purses?' tag. I'v already done the 'Whats in my makeup bag?' tag so it was about time I did this one too.

My beauty, its a grey leather bucket bag from Topshop, that I got for christmas:).

So this is what I cram into my bag,

  • A purse
  • Sunglasses
  • Notebook and pen
  • Hair bobbles and bobby pins
  • A small makeup bag that I throw in instead of my big makeup bag, it has a compact, lip balm and two lipsticks
  • A bangle, I don't know why thats in there!
  • Hand gel
  • And gloves, I love the combination of gloves and sunglasses:)

And thats all folks!

Haul #1

Hi Guys,

I went shopping today in my local town, and bought a few things there not really make up related but im going to post it any way.

heres what i got,

This is what I was most exited about its the Lush Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes box it contains Big Shampoo (45g), 1 Vitamin C toner tab, Fresh Face mask ( I got BB Seaweed), Moisturiser sample ( I have imperials), Mini Sugar Scrub, Mini Each Peach massage bar, Lemony Flutter sample, Pied de Pepper sample, Handy Gururu sample and not forgetting the all important free Moustache :). I got all this for £12.50 + I used a 10% voucher from a gift box so it only cost me a grand total of £11.25, Bargin!


I popped into Sallys to pick up some bobby pins and while I was in there I thought I would pick up some Ion Appliance Cleansing Wipes.

When ever im in W H Smith I always read, but never buy Nylon mag, well today was different I bought it! As well as Vogue. Although its expensive (£4.25 ouch!) I love looking at the outfits created and gaining inspiration.

Finally I always love to take advantage of those Bargin DVD Bins and I got 'The Holiday' for only £3.99, this is definatly one of my top movies, I LOVE IT!

So thats all I bought today, thanks for reading :).



Possible Dupe: Style Snob

Hi guys,
So one of my favourite eyeshadows from MAC is Style Snob, the finish is a starflash shadow this is amazing finish its smooth and almost like butter, unfortunatly its a limited edition it makes me cry everytime i use it, not really but you get the idea:).
Its a pink/ brown taupe with a subtle shimmer, it looks great with a brown like mulch or Buckwheat (from naked honey collection) in the crease. Anyway this is what it looks like,

So this morning as routing around my eyeshadows I saw this,

Prestige Get loose eyeshadow in Planet,
But when I swatched it it was more pinky in colour so to fix that and make it look more like Style Snob I put MACs Mulch over the top.

MACs Mulch

Swatches: Style Snob, Get loose-Planet, Get loose-Planet with Mulch over the top.

Its not an exact dupe but I would say its pretty good.

Do you have any good dupes?

My Favourite Nail Polish

Hi guys,

Iv been lacking in ideas for posts lately, so I thought I would do one of my favourites. A day never goes by when I'm not wearing nail polish I know your meant to let your nails breath but I hate the look of my nails without polish and these are the ones that I find my self reaching for the most.
My very sophisticated storage system a nails inc box I was given a couple of Christmases ago.

The first picture would of been a bottle of Rimmel Black Nail Polish, but I've lost it :(. This is my go to nail polish I think I probably wear it to much, but I find that it goes with everything and can be worn all year round.

Mac Nail polish in Cool Reserve ( sorry but its an LE)

Other than Black this is my go to colour, it is so versatile. Another plus is that I got so many compliments about, I didn't think people noticed that much. Its a gorgeous dirty pale lavender and is a cream finish.

Next is a colour I usually wear in the summer,

Revlon 093 Tropical Temptation it is a coral cream formula with no shimmer. It goes on smoothly and only needs one coat.

A 'Classic' red, Rimmel I love Lasting Finish 030 Double Decker Red, is just that. It is a cream finish (just realised there all cream finish :)), I only need one coat and it lasts a long time (hence the name) even without a topcoat. Another feature is the short brush which also easy control.

This is a definate fall/winter colour its Nails inc polish in Chester sq. Its a deep red/ marron/ rust colour with a hint of pink it is such a unique colour. Unlike all the others this is a more sheer colour but its very buildable.

Last but not least my favourite top coat, RapiDry Top Coat by OPI, I actually dont own any opi apart from this one but I will be buying some soon. I think the reason why i love this so much is its consistancy, it has a thick gel like texture which makes it easy to apply a nice even coat, drys quickly and makes nail polish chip free for a long time. This is only a mini bottle (3.75 ml) but i will be buying a full size when this is finished.

What are your favourite nail polishes?

Review: Loreal Telescopic Mascara

Hi guys,

As I was rummaging through my makeup bag, I found my telescopic mascara and remembered I wanted to blog about it. So iv heard so many rave reviews about this mascara, and i thought i would pick one up, but to be honest I wish i hadn't.

Don't get me wrong its an OK mascara but that's all. Its good at lengthening your lashes but with regards to thickening and separating its pretty rubbish.

With out Mascara:)

With Loreal Telescopic.


Lengthening your lashes, which is good for my stubby lashes (im lusting after LiLash:) )

A small brush so it gets close to the roots and coats the smaller lashes.

Didnt seperate lashes,

Didnt thicken lashes so might end up with spider lashes:)

Would I repurchase the product?

Simply no, because there are much better mascaras for similar price that do a better job.

This mascara retails for about £7-8.

Love Jess.x

Review: Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar

I'm a self confessed Lush addict and the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar is one of my fav Lush products.

I usually break the bar in half and use one side per bath, crumble it under the running tap and it creates oodles of bubbles and gives the water a nice silky feel.

It belongs to the 'Rock Star Soap' family and has a similar scent, smells like the sweetie isle in shops :), It's a pink bar with a small flower pressed into the center, soo pretty.

I'd give this product 5/5, my only wish for this product is that when I used it, it would turn my bath water pink :) but any how its a lovely product and would definetly repurchase.
You can purchase this from Lush Stores or Lush online, for £2.27


It was bound to happen eventually.

For a while I have been meaining to start a blog, I read so many beauty and fashion blogs so I thought why not!, i'll start my own. Thing that you might expect from me, hauls, tutorials, reviews and ootd, fotd. Please leave comments on anything you think I should write about!
Love Jess.x
