Another OOTD - Brand New Items!

Ok, so I had a bit of inspiration for today's outfit, I wanted to wear my new cream blouse and my new black bow stocking tights! Perhaps a little borderline for a work outfit, but hey I never stick to rules :)

I'm holding up the skirt to show you the bows on the tights, the skirt is not really that short!!
Some of these items I've had a while, but not worn yet; whilst others I bought just over a week ago with a friend in Bluewater. What do you think of my lovely ladybird slippers? Lol. I wish I could wear these to work! Breakdown of the outfit; cream blouse from Miss Selfridge £35, black pleated skirt & bow belt from the local market stall £6, bow tights (25% off) New Look £3.75, Eiffel Tower necklace Republic £4.

Quite a simple look with the main theme of bows!! What do you think xoxo

New Tights - OOTD

Hi all, sorry for my absence, had a busy weekend - again! So last week my colleague passed me a 25% off in New Look code. I decided to buy some tights! I bought 4 pairs - a blue pair, a navy pair, a mustard yellow pair and a black stocking pair with hearts going up them. All for just £10.

Here is my OOTD inspired by my new blue tights!

Not sure if you can tell, but my cropped trousers have the same colour blue lines running through them. I like wearing funky colours to brighten up the dreary Winter days in the UK! Headband in blue £1.99, 3/4 sleeve top in blue £6.99, grey check cropped trousers £9.99, blue tights £2.25, shoes £5. Not bad for a total of £26! What do you think? xoxo

Red Magnetism NOTD

Hello again everyone! I know I haven't finished my FOTD series yet, I have the pictures, but I haven't got round to uploading them yet as I had a stupidly busy weekend!! Sorry!

So here is my trying the magnetism look again, I have red, blue, green, silver and purple now. I'm very into red atm, I went in search of some red pumps and red tights today but didn't find any in my size in 2 shops that stocked them! Anyway, here are my pictures:

I was sitting in bed taking the pictures and my cat came to sit on my lap cause he likes to sleep on the bed with me. I couldn't resist adding the picture. I also just noticed that my nails match my bed sheet! hehe.

Hope you enjoyed reading and look out for the final two instalments of my FOTD series! xoxo

Models Own FOTD (Day 5/7)

It seems green FOTD's feature quite regularly on my blog compared with any other colour. I used my Models Own eyeshadows, which I haven't used as often as I should. They are great, highly pigmented and really easy to blend.

MAC FOTD (Day 4/7)

Today I want to go back to an eyeshadow shade which I first purchased for my sister. Then I liked it so much I bought it for myself as a birthday treat. It was my first MAC eyeshadow and first MAC product and it wasn't my last! It's called Sumptuous Olive. I'm not sure if they still do it. I also wanted to use a subtle shade to go with a casual Winter plum lip!

So here goes;

Subtle FOTD (Day 3/7)

Someone I know commented that my last 2 FOTD's have been pretty heavy make up for everyday wear, so today I decided I would use some subtle browns to compliment my brown eyes :)

I have housework to do so today's post won't be very long either. Here are my piccies;

With flash
Without flash
I used:

New ID i-Perfect Colour Adjust Foundation in Vanilla (I was quite shocked when this shade was used on my in the studio but it works - I'm not sure I'm vanilla in high street brands tho!)
New ID i-Conceal Brush on Fluid Concealer in Medium
New ID i-Bronze in Rio

New ID i-Shadow Quad in Choca Mocha (notice a theme going on with the New ID products?)
Wet n Wild Mega Lash Mascara in Black
No.7 Smoky Eyeliner in Black

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Soft Coral (600)
Sephora Lip Gloss in Precious Pink

All in all a quick look to create, probably took 5-10mins max and that was whilst watching TV!
Hope you're enjoying the series so far xoxo

Neon FOTD (Day 2/7)

I was feeling a little bit wild after pole fitness tonight so I hope my look also shows that off. As it's late I'm afraid I won't be rambling on much, you're probably glad. Here are the pics;

With flash
Without flash


Max Factor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation in Warm Almond (45)
No.7 Perfect Light Loose Powder in Medium
MUA Blusher - Shade 4


Fyrinnae Lip Lustre
Lancome Juicy Tubes


Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Models Own Neon Hot Pink Kohl Eye Pencil (lower lashline)
L'oreal Extra Volume Collagene in Black
Aromaleigh, Hot In The City - Coney Island (crease)
Aromaleigh, Hot In The City - Italian Ice (eyelid)
Aromaleigh, Les Papillons - Flying Flower (lower lashline)

I hope the yellow really pops and stand out to you. The pink pencil and shadow on the lower lashline isn't as bright as it could be, perhaps if I do something similar I will add a touch of the shadow over the top of the pencil to set it. Also I don't think you can clearly see the green crease colour very much  it's a shame I didn't take a picture with my eyes closed because I have actually used a lovely shade - between lime green and grass green! In hindsight I think I was trying not to overdo it because of the bright yellow, but I may have under done it...

Let me know what you think :) xoxo

Sunday FOTD (Day 1/7)

Hi all, hope you've had a good weekend? :D

I figured I hadn't done a FOTD in a while and starting today I'm going to do 7 FOTD's with the attempt of using different products every day! A challenge I know, I'm hoping I don't have to go without blusher  although I'm not even sure if I have 7...I will find out!

Here is today's, I used a little bit of liquid eyeliner which I am still not completely used to but I thought I'd give it a try!

With flash
Without flash
I used:

No.7 Shine Free Primer

Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol IV - Crystal (crease)

And yes, this week I said I would also be bringing you the highlights of my week;
A new female artist who goes by the name "Natalia Kills", the album is awesome, not too unlike Lady Gaga.
Downton Abbey - the season finale is tonight and I'm watching it right now, I'm not sure how I'm gonna cope without it on Sunday nights.
I also learnt two new pole moves this week - Crucifix, and the front hook to back hook, videos of these can be found by some great pole dancers on Youtube of course!

That's all for today - what do you think? xoxo

OOTD & New Blog Series

Today I was provided with inspiration for my OOTD - I asked a friend because I was feeling lazy.
So here it is:

I look a bit weird in the 2nd pic but I had to include it since little Cosmo wanted to get involved in the photos. The handbag is from Next (£12), the tan waist belt is also from Next (£6), the green shirt is from Republic - part of the Soul Cal range (probably no more than £15), the white strap top is from a boutique store (£3), the indigo skinny jeans are from Dorothy Perkins (£20) and the tan ankle boots are from New Look (£25). All in all not bad for a total of £81. What do you think?

I also want to start a series of Sunday Special blogs: featuring my favourite FOTD of the week, a new book that I may have read, band that I've heard or TV programme - I got the idea when I listened to a new band in the car today and was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved them after just one song!! I ended up listening to three!

Thanks for reading!! xoxo

BINTM Goodies!!!

So generally when you go to a modelling show you just assume there is gonna be no free food - like other shows my partner and I have been to, and that it would be full of beauty products.

Well there were a few surprises - firstly the food, due to the stereotype of models not eating! Then there was the fact that Amy Childs was there, surrounded by people - oh dear! I fell in love with lots of clothes there but sadly they stocked size 8's and up, too big for my petite frame :(

I did get to buy a few NYX goodies, I wanted to try a selection of products, as I'd heard that its a good quality cheapish brand from the US. I decided to pick up some stuff from the 3 for £5 baskets:

I was also tempted by the Nails Supreme nail art pens, these were similar to my Rio nail art pens that were bought more than 6 years ago! I felt it was time they were replaced, grabbing a bargain as usual I got 23 pens, a spare brush/pen & a top coat for £40!

And if you've seen my previous blog you'll also know that I got 2 new magnetism nail polishes which I am very happy with and can't wait to get the other 3 colours!!

What do you think of my purchases? :D

Newest Nail Trend - Magnetism!

At the weekend I attended BINTM (Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model). I purchased a few things, being that my birthday is coming up. However from now on I am on a "no-buy" from now on, I have to save every penny for the wedding!! If you live near me and want a manicure let me know and I can give you a special price. I'm a fully qualified Nail Techinician.

Anyway onto the subject of today's post; Magnetism Nail Polish! I got Ego Green & Notorious Silver from FashionistA - who worked with The Saturdays to create this nail polish range.

Purple (Molly), Green (Una), Blue (Vanessa), Silver (Frankie) & Red (Rochelle), they went on sale on 26th October in selected Superdrug stores! The Nail Lacquer is £6 and the Nail Magnet is £3. I managed to pick up 2 polishes and the magnet from the show for £10! I also just had an email from Superdrug about 3 for 2 so I  intend to purchase the other three colours for £12! Bargain.

I think it came out quite well for a first attempt; here are pictures of my manicure:

What do you think? Have you tried any other Magnetism Nail Polishes? I've seen Nails Inc & 17 also have them out in the UK! Thanks for reading!! xoxo
