IN/OUT November!


My birthday!
I turned 22 on the 9th and had a beautiful meal with close friends
and family in Sarastro's in Covent Garden.
Can't even begin to describe what a magical place this is, I felt like I was in another world.
If you are ever anywhere near I suggest popping in, even if only to stare open mouthed at all the
amazing stuff and search all the hidden corners filled with books and old notes from people.
Truly stunning.

Throwing caution to the wind!
Spending far too much money in Superdrug. Such a nice guilt.

Feeling homey.
It was nice being back home in London for a few days and seeing much missed family and friends (and dogs!).
Did miss the sea though!

Falling in love with an object.
Balenciaga part time.

Metallic nail polish.
Can't. Get. Enough.

Dark lips.
YSL rouge volupte in forbidden burgundy is the lip of choice at the mo.

Smelling delish.
Getting A LOT of perfume for my birthday. Hello Flowerbomb.

Joining the real world of phones that do more than phone.
My new bright pink nokia c3. lush!

The fingerless ones with the flip over mitton bit. Love.


Life generally being pretty damn good!


Badman Hangovers
The two day hangover I had after drinking what seems like 70 bottles of rose
on my non family birthday night out in brighton was just delightful.

The bitter cold London weather at the moment!
I don't mind wrapping up, but come on! I don't want my lungs frozen just from breathing.

Chipped nail polish.
You annoy me. Sod off.

Overly massive bags
That I always end up (accidentally) bashing myself
or others with.. I need a handbag ASBO.

Winter perfume.
I know, I know, it's bloody cold and we should all be reaching
for our favourite "wintery" perfume, but in an attempt to prolong that summery feeling
I have been dousing my self in everything floral and fresh. which is odd in it'self
as I'm a warm and spicy perfume lover all year round usually.
D&G #3 L'imperatrice is a favourite right now

Annoying computer viruses.
Not being able to get into my blog.
That was a right bugger.

Trouble logging in

Hello gorgeous people!
I have not been able to access my blog for quite a while now, my google accounts page just wont let me log in, even though the password is right.
What I am having to do it change the password, while i'm singed in under the new password i can blog but as soon as i log out i have to go through the whole reset password thing again.
I don't really want to start a new blog and lose all of my content so if anyone has any ideas as to why this is happening or what I can do about it that would
be much appreciated!

Sorry if I've not got back to anyone, but I've only just figured out how to get back on.

Hope everyone is well and not having the lovely seasonal flu!

The Falsies vs Voluminous!

My eyelashes have been going through a very thin and lifeless stage at the moment
which has been quite depressing to say the least!
So to cheer myself up and try and encourage some much needed oomph into my lashes
I brought this!
It's on sale at Superdrug at the moment for £5.99.

This is not a proper review as I have not yet worn it out, but I thought I would do
a little comparison photo with everyones favourite, Loreal Voluminous!

Right eye - 3 coats Voluminous in carbon black

Left eye - 3 coats The Falsies in black..

I think the "full fringe" brush on The Falsies has done exactly what it said on the tin,
the outer and inner corners are much er...more there than with the Voluminous and it seems to have kept the curl better. I also think the black is slightly deeper.
So for now 1-0 to The Falsies

Recent purchases!

Union jack Docs, Union jack bag <3,>
Gosh nail polishes, Barry M lip stuffs, Maybelline the falsies volum' express mascara, Barry M white khol pencil.

Gosh nail polishes in Black Passion and Purple Heart.
YUM. Black Passion has come out a bit green in the photo but it's
actually a black (duh!) with silvery gray glitter shot through it. It comes out very metallic.
Purple heart is black and blue and green and purple and amazing.
It reminds me of a petrol spill.

The Falsies!
I have high hopes for this mascara. It has a weird lid and for a moment I thought it was
already open.
Have not tried it out yet, but will do a mini review when I have.

Brush side view..

and back view..Oh saucy!
Well not really, unless you are a mascara pervert.
Which to be honest, I probably am.

Barry M Lip Lacquer Crayon # 4

I am SO ridiculously excited by this.
They are actually amazing.
I had originally put all five colours in my superdrug basket but then had a "YOU WILL DIE WITH NO MONEY BUT MANY MANY LIPSTICKS" guilt attack and
put the other four back, which was stupid as now I just have to go back to superdrug and get them all because they are fab. Shock horror.

This photo does NOTHING for this lipstick, in fact it's almost insulting to the
lipstick to put this up but I just couldn't get it's beauty to come across!

It's so sparkly and gorgeous.
It looks almost metallic on the lips.

Barry M Lip Paint in 117 Orange

It's very Orange. Not much more to say! haha
Superdrug are giving you a free eye khol pencil when you buy any two items at the moment.

Cold sores and puppies.

I hate cold sores!
They are evil and mean.
Does anyone have any good home made remedies?
Or know of anything over the counter that ACTUALLY works in less than like two weeks?

Here is a picture of Edie..Because she is cute. haha x

Megan Fox inspired burgundy/plum lip!

Couldn't QUITE get her gorgeous bronzed skin.. There is only so much Hoola can do.
It is not after all, a miracle worker ;)

The colour came out totally wrong on the photos, in real life it's much more
purpley and more like Megan's.
PLEASE excuse the planet sized spot on my chin, as you know
I've been under a lot of stress recently and that always makes me brake out..
Yeah cheers for that universe.
Megan's top lip it quite rounded where as mine is like two pointy triangles so I just smoothed it over my cupids bow.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, blog police.

Abusive Realationships.

Hello lovely ladies!

Just thought I would update you and explain why I've been absent for a few months..
I've been going through a really long nasty messy brake up and it's been difficult to think about much else.
The problems started a good 7/8 months ago but it recently became unsafe for me to be around him anymore.
He is Finally gone and I'm now happier than ever and i'm really really enjoying being single and not having to answer to anyone.
Being away from him has made me realise how much he wore me down and how much of ME I had lost. Realising that I had gone from a strong independent person to someone who was constantly treading on eggshells, fearful and unhappy was a blow. Abuseive relationships are things that happen to other people right? but when you are in the thick of it it's hard to see what's really going on.
Everyday I'm feeling more myself, everyday I feel stronger and everyday I get back a little piece of me he took.
This "man" is going to spend the rest of his life ruining every opportunity he gets to better himself and fucking up every relationship he has because that is all he knows how to do. I almost feel sorry for him. Almost..

If there are any girls out there who are in the same situation I was in, please tell somebody.
There is endless support out there and although it's scary, you need to be strong and be brave. Remember who you are and you will be a much happier, safer person for it!

Thank you SO much for sticking with me, and HELLO! to my new followers!
Hopefully normal blogging will resume once all this has calmed down.
I'm really excited to start my life again and I hope you'll be along for the journey!
