OOTD #7...Monochrome feat Orange Circle

Sunday, 29 January 2012


Blazer - H&M
T-Shirt - Orange Circle *
Jeans - Dorothy Perkins
Lipstick - No7 Poppy King

Currently typing this up from my "sick bed" or "sick sofa" because I am full up with a cold that errupted out of nowhere yesterday morning. Having to work yesterday morning didn't help - I have to count out loud a lot and this practically made my voice disappear.

Anyways, back to the point of this post... I am going to try and start doing more OOTD posts, I love seeing them on other people's blogs but OH MY mine look so bad! Trying to find somewhere to take the picture, then find a "pose", whilst getting the right lighting and running back from the camera and posing to make the timer - JEEZ Y U SO HARD OOTD!!! I do hope you forgive me for how bad these are - any tips would be gratefully recieved. 

The main focus of this outfit it this amazing t-shirt from Orange Circle, I love it! I love the zebra print and the glasses match my Ray-Bans. The t-shirt is really thick cotton so feels rather expensive and it washes really well - hello domestic goddess!! I have a wishlist as long as the longest list in the world for their t-shirts (and jumpers) here are some of my faves 1,2,3,4,5,6 (bare in mind these are just from the first page - told you I want hundreds of them!) Ok so here is my ultimate favourite - the deathly hallows t-shirt!

Here's hoping this cold buggers off soon!

FOTD... #1

Sunday, 22 January 2012
I want to start doing "FOTD's" again, I like to look back and remember all the products that I used together and I find reading others really helps me...so hopefully mine will do the same. This is what I wore on Saturday, popped out for breakfast with my Nan and then settled down to an afternoon of youtube filming (side note - how people deal with "trolls" is beyond me! I hate getting a thumb down!) I do like these type of "simple eye - "out there" lip" looks, it is pretty much my go to look, this and a neutral smokey eye. I'd love to get into the world of tutorials but don't think that I am good enough haha.

LUSH Creamy Candy Bubble Bar....

Wednesday, 18 January 2012
Never one to stray from my beloved Comforter Bubble Bar I was surprised when I found myself adding this Creamy Candy Bubble bar to a little yellow paper bag. Creamy Candy has the same smell as the Rock Star Soap which is actually a rather sweet smell. To be honest I didn't think that I would like it because I am not that keen on really strong smelling products that are too sickly.
To combat this I tend to always use less of the product to make sure that I am not overwhelmed by the smell. This may affect the review...but I shall continue anyway. The first time that I used this I broke off half without the center piece and to be honest I used it so long ago that I can't really remember what the bath was like - must have been rather boring then!
However the second time I used it, with the amount shown in the picture, I have a few more things to write about. I can't seem to just "use" a product these days without thinking about its look, performance and value for money - see I am a dedicated blogger even though the amount of posts are few and far between! 
Anyways, once I crumbled the rest of the bar into my bath the standard Bubble Bar reaction took place, although there is more bubbles if you use the whole thing. Loads of bubbles (although not as much as the Comforter) appeared and the water turned slightly cloudy. The sweet smell didn't linger for too long which is a good thing in my books. The chunks of LUSH's solid bath oil melt and make my skin lovely and soft but to be honest I would rather just use a good moisturiser to get the same skin softening effect without paying for a bubble bar!
Do you use the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar? What do you think of it?

Barry M Nail Paint - Mint Green...

Saturday, 7 January 2012





This was a picture that I found on my laptop which was taken ages ago, as in when I still had biosculpt gel on my nails and I haven't had that for months :( damn you finances!! 
Anyway, onto the product itself - Barry M Nail Paint in Mint Green. As you can see from the picture it is the perfect "mint green", I love wearing pastel-y colours on my nails and this one is just beautiful. As with the majority of Barry M Nail Paints this applies really well and is perfect in two coats. This lasts a good couple of days before chipping - but I think that test is more reflective of the topcoat that you use. 
What are your must have Barry M Nail Paints?

Andrea Fullerton - Gemstone Overcoat...

Tuesday, 3 January 2012


I bought this from Superdrug at the same time that I bought Petrol in Water and its the Andrea Fullerton Gemstone Overcoat (£4.99). It's a jewel effect topcoat that adds almost a fish scale like appearance, the colour changes from a silver/blue to a goldy/pink when your nails catch the light. I love using this over pale pinks, pastels but also deep, darker colours. A bonus point is that this makes your nail polish last for ages and doesn't have the real pain in the arse removal that most glitters do!


What do you think?
