Hello there my lovelies well it was my birthday on Thursday and I'm now 23 OMG I do feel old lol, and I was taken to Amsterdam as a surprise by one of my closest friends. I have to say Amsterdam is one of the most culturally beautiful places and has some amazing architecture. I had an amazing time and ended my birthday celebrations with a lovely spa day courtesy of the bf. 


I was shocked to log in and find I now have 89 followers, and would just like to thank you all for your lovely comments and taking your time to read my blog, as soon as I get to 100 followers I will do a giveaway for you all, feel free to leave comments on what you would like to see in my giveaway, I was thinking along the lines of Mac or Nars goodies :) xoxo

Hello Dolls, Hope you all had a fab weekend :) I ventured to York for the weekend and had the most amazing time ever. York is such a beautiful city, with lots going on and and is the perfect place to catch up with friends. We went shopping during the day and I picked up lots of lovely items which I will show you in a separate post and then on to one of my favourite places of any city, Nando's. Later on the evening we headed into town for cocktails, one in particular we loved which was called a zombie which you set on fire to make the alcohol stronger and does pretty much what it says on the tin, turns you into a zombie lol. Really was the perfect weekend and I'm now onto my final week at work and the big move next month, extremely happy with life at the moment, what did you guys get up to at the weekend? xoxo

Patriotic Nails

Sorry I've been vacant from the blogosphere recently, I've been super busy with the new move but finally got my apartment sorted and WOW I have fallen in love with the place, after all the stress it's caused I'm so excited to have somewhere to call home again, i'll upload pics for you guys soon. Plus, to make me smile even more, only ten more days at my old job and i'm so happy to be leaving and moving on to bigger and better things. This in turn, also means my blogging will be back on track very soon, it's so lovely to come online and read all your lovely comments they really make my day :) Now with it been the Queen's Jubilee on Tuesday and my last day at work tomorrow so an extra long weekend for most of us *insert beaming smile*, I decided to get in the patriotic spirit and paints my nails red, white and blue lol, using all models own nail polishes (yes I do have an obsession with models own polish).

My Mac Lipstick Collection

Hello beauties, now one of my favourite posts to read or watch on youtube are peoples lipstick collections, being quite the lipstick junkie myself there is just something about a shiny new lipstick that just puts a smile on my face, the lovely packaging and beautiful colours, and even the smell, hello YSL rouge volupte, yum! So I thought i'd share my collection with you, now instead of going through all my lipsticks as I own quite a few, I thought i'd start with my Mac lipstick collection. Now I currently own 14 of these little beauties all various shades and formulas but I would say nudes/pinks are my most go to shades and I love the cremesheen and amplified formulas as I find they don't tend to be as drying and are alot creamier than some other formula's. Now I know some of you may think 14 is alot and to others 14 may not seem many, but to me I just love the option of a different colour on a morning, and tend to change my lipstick according to mood/outfit, yes I did say mood, the brighter the lipstick generally the more chirpy i'm feeling that day, the whole you cant wear a bright lip rule during the day does not apply to me and I will wear any colour I feel appropriate to my attire or ever fluctuating mood lol. Now on to my collection :)

I do also have Ruby Woo which is a gorgeous red but I cannot find this anywhere :(. I would definitely say the pictures with flash are more true to colour. If you would like a more in depth review of any of these shades feel free to ask. Is there any must have shades you would recommend? xoxo

Nails of the day - Models Own Jade Stone

Hello beautifuls, seen as though the weather is currently scorching, I felt the nails definitely need brightening up. I was going to go for an orange/peach but instead I found an old gem in my nail polish collection in the form of jade stone from the Models Own collection, I decided to add a little glitter to the polish so added Models Own emerald city to the ring finger. I do love the models own polishes, they give a nice opaque colour and stay chip free for a good 5 days (using a top coat of course) and are fairly cheap at £5 a pop. However, boots and the models own website regularly have offers on where you can get them cheaper if you buy a few at a time. I would definitely recommend you try them out, I actually have quite the collection of these polishes now so if you would like me to do a post on these polishes just ask :)

Hello dolls, you all have a good weekend? me and some of the girls headed to Blackpool for a friends birthday, a day mixed with candy floss and the pleasurebeach and a night of cocktails and dancing, made for an amazing weekend and a very poorly head Sunday morning lol. Just thought I'd share a few pictures with you lovely ladies (and guys). We were very lucky the sun shone for most of the day and no rain what so ever and so I've been told the weather is staying this way, which gets me very excited for summer. Think bbq's, icecream, sandles, picnics beaches and golden tans, wow excitement :)

The perfect nude lipstick- YSL rouge volupte 2 (sensual silk)

Hello there my lovelies sorry I haven't blogged all week, been super busy at work and getting every thing ready for the big move next month. However, I did have a chance to pop to debenhams after work and pick up some amazing products which I will review for all my gorgeous followers. This is most definitely a product rave, as I am always searching for the perfect lipstick, the perfect nude, pink, red and so on and I have most definitely found my number one nude. I must own around 12 nude lipsticks and in my time I wouldn't like to count how many I've tried, but of them all this is my absolute favourite. Rouge volupte lipsticks by YSL are amazing, they are the most moisturising lipsticks I have ever used and glide on your lips like butter, they smell like watermelon and come in the most beautiful packaging of any lipstick I have come across, it's so amazing I'm reluctant to throw away the empty stick when I'm finished with it lol. I currently own 3 of these lipsticks number 7, 9 and 13 but this is my all time favourite. 

Sensual Silk is a beautiful creamy nude with a slight pinkish tone, it really is the perfect combination of colours not too nude that you look like you belong in a morgue, or you've got concealer lips yak, but nude enough to stay out of the pink zone. It is extremely pigmented and will give even the most pigmented lips an opaque colour in just one swipe, as for staying power it does not stay on a lengthy period of time but I enjoy reapplying this lipstick that much its no task to me at all. The only downside to the product is the price, £23 is expensive for a lippie but for this little beauty I'd certainly pay it again. xoxo
