Really sorry I haven't posted anything on here in so long!! To tell the truth I got really stuck for ideas and although I love beauty I didn't know what to say about it!
An update on me is that I am going to college in September studying English. I have always loved to read and am trying to get that started again.
I have just made a new blog which will be for book reviews of every book I read (which I think is going to be lots!!) so if you enjoy reading too then please check it out. I am just finishing reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold so that will be the first review.
Love you all lots

I heard about this new Revlon Photoready Foundation through Laura from lollipop26. I really want to try this in the pathetic hope that it will make me look better in photos, how stupid am I? Anyway I've seen this on the Boots website today and this picture is from the Ulta website so it is available both sides of the atlantic now!! In the UK this is £12.99!
Item of Clothing:
You really can't see how cute this cardigan is... look on the Topshop website to see!! Anyway it's yellow which is going to be my colour in Spring/Summer (I've decided) and has cute white hearts all over it!! It's £38 but it is so gorgeous, I just think it is worth it!
This bag is amazing. Pastel colours are going to be huge this Spring/Summer and as you probably already know I cannot resist a cute bow. This is just bang on trend!! Even better it is such a bargain at £8 from New Look!
These shoes are one of those rare finds that look so much more expensive than they are in my opinion. These would look gorgeous paired with anything denim for an on-trend look. I love tan heels and these are a great example of the kind I like... these will see you right through Spring and Summer and go with almost anything. They are £35 from New Look!
Now though, it's back to consistent, daily posts! Remember if you haven't already to enter my giveaway which is
Thank you to those of you who have and a huge thanks to a few of you who have left links or posts on your blogs about it... I love you lots!!

Every time I see Collection 2000's pigments 'Dazzle Me' I always love the look of them; especially this Paradise colour. However when I go to pick one up, it's usually only half full... does anyone else have this problem?? Anyway I'm probably going to have a look tomorrow when I go into town and see if I can buy a couple. You can buy these from Boots or Superdrug for around £3!
Item of Clothing:
I've been looking for a while now for a perfect LBD for going clubbing or just for a few drinks or a nice meal. I like this Miss Selfridge wonder because it is quite simple with just the shoulder detailing and I love that it would be very figure hugging and sexy but classy at the same time. I need a piece like this in my wardrobe and I have a good mind to buy it now and for it to be my inspiration to lose more weight!! This is £38, but I think an investment piece that will last you!
I love this belt. It is one of those staple items for your wardrobe to cinch in floral dresses, denim dresses, black dresses etc and give them a bit of a folky edge! This is from New Look for £7!
Shoe:It's official... the buyers at New Look are gods!! They keep coming up with items that astound me - especially their price-tag! These gorgeous wedges will look fabulous with Spring/Summer's key trends of florals, denim, nautical... you name it, they will go with it and give it a fashiony twist all of it's own! What more could you ask for at £25?!
Total Cost = £74

So close to 50 followers now, thank you all! I have bought all my giveaway prizes but am keeping hush-hush about what they are!!
Item of Clothing:
This jumper just really captures the fairy-tale vibe that is going on at the moment what with the Alice in Wonderland film. It says 'Fairest of Them All' which I think it so cute. This would look gorgeous with a grey blazer or black leather jacket over a white vest top and skinny jeans. It's £18 (I think but their site won't let me check at the moment!) from New Look!
I love little cute scarfs at the moment that you can team with a boring outfit you've worn hundreds of times to just freshen it up. This scarf is exactly that item. I love the pinky/red colour, the cute white hearts and the way you can tie it as a neckerchief to look French chic!! It's from the wonderful Miss Selfridge and is £10!
For some reason I love flat shoes with peep-toes. Don't ask me why but I think they look really quirky and cute on the end of skinny jeans or a pretty dress. These are perfect with their fabulous polkadot print and the monochrome is bang on trend for the moment. These are £24.99 from Schuh!
Thanks everyone for reading, commenting and following. If I reach 50 tonight or tomorrow my giveaway will be up tomorrow evening. I just need to find my charger for my camera or nick someone else's camera to take a picture of the prize!
Anyway, hope you had lovely days. Did you go shopping? If you did, what did you buy? Make me jealous!!

I hate Sunday evenings, so I am trying to distract myself by pretend-buying stuff. Here are the things I am really liking so far!
I recently re-discovered the brand Miners which I'm sure used to be out when I was younger?? Anyway, I think they're a brand for young teenagers and most of the stuff on their website miners.co.uk is a bit too young for me but their nail varnishes are in really nice colours. This is one of my faves... called Coral Cutie and exactly the shade I have been looking for. And at £2.99! Yay!
Item of Clothing:
The nautical trend is one of my favourites of the moment and just suits my personality. I love this cute top with the collaboration of nautical stripes and the lace top I think it is really different. This top would look so gorgeous with dark blue skinny jeans, a cream or grey blazer and navy pumps. This is from New Look and is £16!
I really like these earrings and think they would be perfect for the summer. I can imagine these with just a really simple outfit like some linen trousers and a colourful vest top just to give the outfit some interest. The detail on them is so pretty!! These are from the amazing asos.com and are £10!
These sandals are so gorgeous and would look amazing with really skinny jeans. I love the colour and the side lace-up detailing. I think these will be brilliant sandals to wear when it is almost sandal weather, as it is sort of enclosed on the ankle and therefore looks more heavy. They are from oli.co.uk for £35!
Total Cost = £63.50

There are definitely a lot of items of lust-worthy status at the moment!! Here are just a few!
So this perfume is gorgeous! It's Hugo Boss Femme. I tried it today whilst I was browsing round the shops and I love it!! It's a smell I can't necessarily describe but trust me, it's beautiful. The bottle is so cute as well! I found this on fragrancedirect.co.uk for £22.35 for 30ml.
Item of Clothing:
I think this dress is so cute! I love the duck-egg blue and the gorgeous floral pattern as well as the sweetheart neckline and the ruching all over the dress. This will be perfect for nights out in Spring/Summer. This is from Rare @ Topshop and is £45... a real investment piece!
I am loving these cute studs. The coral colour is going to be massive in Spring/Summer and I have a huge penchant for bows... anything with bows and I'm sold. You can get these from Topshop for £5!
I love these gorgeous shoes! They're very Vivienne Westwood-esque and even better, for a fraction of the price!! The colour will look amazing with jeans for a casual look or a cute prom dress on a night out. They are from Accessorize and cost £22!
Total Cost = £94.35
- Rimmel Colour Rush Mono Eyeshadow in 030 Smokey Quartz

So there you have it... I am a Makeupaholic!!
Ooh and in other more exciting news I have got my contest prizes. None of it is Mac as I don't even own any and haven't got that much money to be honest but all are products that I've either got or think are really nice... so hopefully you will too!!
Love you lots and have nice evenings,
So this is the blush that I bought from Collection 2000. I can't quite remember how much it cost but I think it was between £3 and £4. I really liked the peachy colour of this blush and I think that it is quite good for an everyday blush where you want a hint of colour.
The main problem with this blush is the fact that it is not very pigmented and if you wanted a lot of colour you would need to pile it on (which I don't)
So the summary is it's a lovely colour but doesn't give great colour pay-off. I would recommend buying if you just want a really light blush look.

Just finished watching Eastenders, not overly impressed I have to say!! Anyway here are the items I am lusting after...
I watched a video by FilthyGorgeousMakeup on Youtube where she recommended these Rimmel Colour Rush Metallic Shadows. She used the one in Tribute which is such a gorgeous colour I want it now!! You can get it at Superdrug or Boots for about £4!
Here's the link to the video:
Item of Clothing:
It is getting to that time of the year where I realise that I cannot keep wearing my winter coat for much longer. But yes, I think this beauty from good old New Look would be the perfect spring/summer fix. And at £35 I don't think it's too bad! I love the full skirt and the ruched sleeves!!
I love this bag. I think it looks really vintage and worn and could be used for any occasion to just give a ' This is from a charity shop - but isn't it amazing?' look to any outfit. If you want it, it's from Topshop for £35!
I think these shoes are amazing! They would look so great with skinny jeans or jeggings tucked in or with summer dresses to give them an edgy look. These are from Marks and Spencers for £39.50 and are definitely worth getting as they are bang on trend!

What an amazing product... I don't know anyone who doesn't like this. It is so wearable... probably the most wearable palette of all of the Sleek palettes. I love the brown colours in this and the greyish/blue colour is so gorgeous too. This is a really versatile palette that could be worn in the daytime for a work or school neutral look and also for a gorgeous smokey eyed night look! This is one palette you could take with you on a week away on holiday and have a different look every day and night. All this for just over £4! How Perfect!
This is the Sleek Ink Pot which is Sleek's version of a gel eyeliner which comes in loads of colours. I have Espresso (which is black) and Purple Rain (obviously purple).
I am in absolute love with this product. It comes in a little pot as shown above and with the little brush which is really good for applying the eyeliner. I am a complete Gel Eyeliner convert after trying this as it looks fabulous and stays put better than any other eyeliner I have ever tried. It gives just as good definition as a liquid liner but is so much easier to apply. For a new starter to makeup I would definitely recommend this, and you don't get the awful smudging that you do with kohl liner.
I can't say enough good things about this product. I can't remember exactly how much it is... somewhere around £3-£4, and is so so worth it, pick up one in every colour!!
Have you tried this? Do you like it?
Hope you had a lovely day... I can smell the weekend!! Here is what my diminishing bank balance cannot pay for, but what I would like...
I love this whole collection of Nail Polishes by Ciate for asos.com. They are all named after celebrities and this particular cherry red colour is named Katy (I'm guessing after Katy Perry). I love the colour, I love the packaging and I don't think the price is too bad at £6.
Item of Clothing:
I know Topshop are always pretty good but at the moment it seems like I want to buy their entire stock. This beautiful skirt is one thing I picked out. I love the nude background with the stunning black flower detail and think this is such a wearable take on the nude trend. I would probably put this with a denim shirt and wedges to give it a tough edge. At £40 it's quite expensive but in my eyes a perfect summer investment.
I am an absolute sucker for kitsch and cute jewellery and this birdcage necklace is by no means an exception. I love the bird (obviously) and the cage and I also love the pink bow. This would set off a plain and simple daytime outfit and give it a cute edge. Personally I think this would look great with a plain white vest top and a pink boyfriend cardi to give it a bit of oomph. This is from awear.com and costs £10.
I am so in love with these gorgeous shoes. The white lace detail is just amazing and would look great teamed with summer dresses for a girly/preppy look!! They look so beautiful and look like they would cost a lot but they are actually such a bargain at £18 from Topshop!
Total Cost = £74
