mini MUA haul

I'm loving all things MUA at the moment, they're such amazing products from as little as £1, so I had a mini shop the other day to cheer me up, here's what I got..

Clear Mascara £1
I've been using this as a brow comb/gel, that's why it has some weird looking brown-ness on the end haha

Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencil in Jet Black £1
Absolutely love that this comes with a built in sharpener!

Lipstick £1

Out There Plumping Lip Gloss in Pink Sugar £2

Lipgloss, Lipstick and Eyeliner swatches

Anyone else loving MUA? x

lipstick of the day & review

make gif

Hey sweeties! How are you all? Good I hope! Today I'm going to review one of my favourite lipsticks, which I wore yesterday which is Rimmel London's Lipstick in shade 22, from the Kate Moss collection.
I'd had a red lipstick from Rimmel before and hadn't thought much of it, but thought I'd give the Kate collection a go, and am pleasantly surprised. As you can see from the pictures it has quite an orange undertone, which I love 'cause I usually go for coral or pink lipsticks rather than red, but every girl should have a statement red lipstick right?
The pictures above make it look a little lighter/orange than it actually is so I've taken some photos to show you how stunning the red colour is..
The packaging is too cute!
The lipstick itself has a thick consistency which gives incredible colour from the first coat. It's a really intense classic Kate Moss colour, definitely the shade to wear if you want to stand out. I'd wear it on both day and night, toning it down with a coat of lipbalm for shopping and piling the colour on for clubbing. It lasts ages too, and random but it smells amazing! I usually hate that stereotypical lipstick smell but I get a hint of watermelon from this, lovely, and at only £5.49 it's not going to break the bank, definitely recommend! 
My fave lippy is also from this collection so I'll be reviewing that soon.
Have any of you tried this colour? What did you think? x

weekend in the woods

On Saturday my mum came up to visit us in our new flat for the first time. I’d only seen her once in the past week to have a quick lunch so it was nice to spend a whole day with her. We went for breakfast in Wetherspoons which was so yummy, and then spent a couple of hours looking around the shops.
About two streets up from where we live is the Museum and Winter Gardens, and a huge park with ducks and swans hehe. The Winter Gardens is an ‘indoor rainforest’, full of tropical plants, a fish pond, and a glass lift which transports you to a ‘treetop walk’ (you can use the stairs too but they’re scary and I’m afraid of heights!) From the upper level you can see all of the trees and plants, it’s such a gorgeous place for photos or just to come and enjoy nature. We spent a while in there, taking lots of photos and fed the ducks too, weirdly they weren't interested at all though hmm. Here's some of the pictures we took :)
What I wore
Jumper-River Island £28
Skirt-New Look £8 in sale
Shoes-Primark £10
Bag-Miso for Republic £35
How were your weekends lovelies?

october wants

I can't believe it's October already, wow where's the year gone?! I feel completely cheated out of Summer..
Here's my October wants...

I've been looking for the perfect pair of ankle boots that will see me through till Spring and I've finally found them. River Island have a sale on Thursday so I'll be snapping up these little beauties!

Wow, I never thought I'd bother getting a BB cream but this stuff is actually a miracle in a tube! I'll do a full review when I get some. Boots have a 2 for £10 deal on Maybelline cosmetics at the moment so I'll have to treat myself to something else too!

I don't think I'll actually be getting these as they're a little out of my price range for nail polishes, but they are gorgeous in every way, even the packaging is fab. I love the caviar nail art look, but maybe I'll try it with a cheaper alternative first.

4. All the MUA make-up I can carry, ££££££
I've recently started buying MUA make up and it's amazing, especially for the dirt cheap prices. There's so many gorgeous products and colours, I want to own the whole collection.

Ms Ahern's new book comes out on the 11th October and I can't wait! She's my favourite author, I have all of her books lined up cutely on my bookcase haha. 

'Journalist Kitty Logan′s career has been destroyed by scandal, and she now faces losing the woman who guided and taught her everything she knew. At her mentor′s bedside, Kitty asks her -- what is the one story she always wanted to write?
The answer lies in a file buried in Constance′s office: a list of one hundred names. There is no synopsis, no explanation, nothing else to explain what the story is or who these people are. The list is simply a mystery.
But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late.
With everything to prove, Kitty is assigned the most important task of her life -- to write the story her mentor never had the opportunity to. Kitty has to not only track down and meet the people on Constance′s list, but find out what connects them. And, in the process of hearing ordinary people′s stories, she uncovers Constance′s -- and starts to understand her own.'

Ooh exciting stuff!

So that's my October wants list, what do you have on your wishlist atm? Anyone tried any of the things on my wishlist?
