Okay, so we all know that when I say drugstore, I mean Boots or Superdrug! In this case, it’s Superdrug, although I’m pretty sure that you can pick up all of these in Boots too. First up is this Barry M nail polish in Turbocharged. It’s one of the Speedy Quick Dry polishes, which Im currently obsessed with. I’m actually loving the Gelly polishes from Barry M as well – very impressed with their nail polishes in general, TBH. This is an amazing coral-red colour…Continue Reading “Mini Drugstore Haul”

I can’t quite believe it’s February tomorrow! Which means it will be my birthday really soon! Exciting ūüôā But seriously, January has gone scarily quickly. I find lots of people put extra pressure on themselves throughout the month, whether that be to make it a success, to stick to their resolutions, to diet and do lots of exercise. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not against setting goals and being healthy, but for me personally I find this kind of behaviour just puts more pressure…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 31st January 2016”

I’ve been meaning to do this post for about 2 weeks now, so I thought it was time to get it done and dusted. I’ve picked up a few bits and pieces from Boots over the last few weeks, and I thought I’d just pop them all together in this post. I’ve been trying out most of them so it’s a bit of a mini-review mixed in with a haul post, hope you enjoy! The first thing I picked up, and what I actually went…Continue Reading “November Drugstore Make Up Haul”

Welcome back to my weekly favourites! I’ve had a pretty stressful week, what with starting a new job and having to get my car fixed, so there haven’t been too many enjoyable things this week. But I’ve cobbled a few together here for you, so enjoy! 1.This black and gold smoky eye I had a bit of an experimental day with make up earlier this week, and came out with this smoky eye, with gold across the lid and black smoked out in the outer…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 27th September 2015”

I finally got round to uploading my feelunique haul video today, so I thought I’d write a little complimentary post to go alongside it. I went a bit crazy on the feelunique.com website a couple of weeks ago, and made two slightly too expensive orders. Oops. But I did get some really nice stuff, all of which I know I’ll use, and I was very happy to receive these parcels in the post!   I was really pleased with my first order. I’d had my…Continue Reading “feelunique Haul!”

This is by no means going to be a weekly feature, because I’m not organised or motivated enough to make sure I paint my nails at the same time every week! BUT, as it happens, today just happens to be a Monday, so I thought I’d jump on the Mani Monday bandwagon for a week.   The nail polish which I’ve used above is a Nails Inc polish in the shade ‘Floral Street’. So many bloggers seem to be doing white nails recently, so that’s…Continue Reading “Mani Monday”

Just a quick little post today, as I’ve been mega busy wrapping presents and cooking the meat for Christmas and Boxing Day! I’ve just painted my nails all ready for Christmas, and they don’t look all that bad!   I’ve used an Orly polish, in the colour Luxe, and the Rimmel Glitterbomb shown in the picture, in Midnight Mistletoe. I love them! I hope you guys have all had good Christmas Eve eves (yes, that is¬†a thing!), and check back tomorrow for my last Blogmas…Continue Reading “Christmas Nails! (Blogmas Day 23)”

I’ve mentioned some other beauty gifts here too, but depending on your budget (and the size of your stocking!) they could all potentially be stocking fillers. This is as much a beauty wishlist for me as it is a bit of a gift guide, but I hope there’s a few good ideas to inspire people here! Smokey Eyes Kit (¬£22 from Topshop) //¬†Essie Disco Dazzle Duo (¬£12.99 from Boots)¬†// Benefit The Bronze of Champions Total Bronze Kit (¬£26.50 from feelunique.com)¬†// COLAB Dry Shampoo Travel Set…Continue Reading “Beauty Stocking Fillers (Blogmas Day 21)”

Recently I have been buying a LOT of glitter nail polishes. There have just been so many gorgeous ones around that I haven’t been able to resist! I’ve consequently ended up with probably more than I can possibly wear before Christmas, but to be honest I’ll probably end up wearing them for a while after that. These¬†here all of my latest purchases, and also some of my old favourites that I tend to wear all the time. Rimmel Glitter Bomb Topcoat in Midnight Mistletoe (L)…Continue Reading “Confessions of a Glitter Nail Polish Obsessive”
