MUR Lip Kits Haul and Review.

Hello my lovelies!! This is a little haul I got  awhile back and thought I should share it now with you all. But first, how was everyone’s Christmas? I hope however you spent the day that you enjoyed it all the same. (My partner is ruining the flat with his damn drone. I should never have got him it!! 😂😅) 

Now onto the haul. Its a lip kit haul from MUR or Makeup Revolution to be exact. All of these where bought from Superdrug for £8 each. (I got a 2 for 3 deal and wanted a treat!) So lets get started shall we: 

The haul.
There are 7 lip kits here and I’ll talk about them all. (Ish, I have a little negative feedback on one but it happens.) Lets start with my favourite one first. 

Regent the metallic lip kit.

How stunning is this red! The best thing is that it’s metallic as well. Very pretty shade and love that it doesn’t make me look washed out. The lip pencil is lush as well and can be worn for a much softer everyday kinda look. The metallic packiging is cute too, and great for telling the difference. Lol.

Next onto a not so favourite.

The Holographic Lip Kit

The sparkly one on my hand that you can barely see is the holographic lipkit in Unicorn Dream. And it was a kind of disappointment. The purple lip liner and the spark liquid lip stick are not a nice combo. And that’s just my personal opinion. I’m happy to wear em individually but defo not together. Which is a damn shame. 

Vampire Night’s!
It was the name on this one that got me if I’m honest. And it is a lovely one as well. A matte lip kit for a matte loving gal. In the pic it was just applied so it still looks wet, but now it’s dried into a deep wine red colour that’s great for that vamp look. Or dark lip lovers out there. Royal and Majesty are both matte lip kits also with stunning colours between them. (Sorry no pics at the mo but will be in my next monthly lipstick library!) 

A little Integrity.
While I’m not a major fan of gloss finishes this colour is beautiful. A lovely blend of pink and purple. Fabulous. More than likely wear the lip pencil on it’s own but I’m happy to give this one a try. 

Empire’s don’t build themselves.
This copper shade is Empire and yet another metallic liquid lipstick. Just one of the very few copper shades that I own. It’s a second favourite even though it dries more gloss than matte. The colour won this one over that’s for sure, plus it’s great to play around with. 

Hope you enjoyed this little haul folks. Until next time my lovelies.

A cute Pastel Elixir Haul

Good morning everyone! Today is a very exciting day……I just got my order from Pastel Elixir and I am beyond pleased and excited. Let’s be real, I’m actually sitting trying hard not to squeal. And this is why:

Pastel Elixir Goodies

I did also get a cute mug but got that the other day. Ellis did not it to damage any of the prints. The mind behind Pastel Elixir is a lovely young woman called Ellis Woolley. And she is lovely and answers any questions to the best of her ability. She also has youtube’s. Even better to put a face to the name!! 

The create print and Pastel Elixir buisiness card.

How cute are these. Before I continue Ellis does have a sale going on, check it out for some cute stuff. I love the ‘Create’ print. As an creative person this is something I just can’t resist, plus the doodles are adorable. The simple design for her buisness card is flawless. Simple yet effective. 

My Squirrel Mug by Pastel Elixir.
You may have already seen this on my insta if you follow me there. This mug is just perfect for the new season and I love the forage detail too. While it is smaller than my other mugs, its great for getting used to soya milk. 

Unicorn print, cupcake post card and the monster card

These are great. The moster card was a must. Not sure who will get it but may just keep it cause it’s adorable. The unicorn ‘Believe In Yourself’ print is a great buy. It’s a great little reminder to stay confident and that I got this. 😍

Pastel Elixir buisiness info
This is the info for Pastel Elixir if your interested. Ellis is a lovely person and we both share a keen love for supporting small buisinesses. From her beautiful stickers, badges to the mugs and prints. This is one shop I defo plan on visiting again. 

Until next time.

A knee-high sock haul.

Hello my lovelies. How are you all on this fine day?? I’ll admit my day has been rather slow. Recently I was looking for some knee high socks. Why? Simple I’m not a fan of tights. Do not like them at all. So I wanted to invest in some decent knee highs that could keep me warm and still look good. And I went and got some from amazon. By the way what’s your opinion on knee high socks?? Do you love them?? Or are you more a tight’s person??

Bear socks. I love these ones. Warm and can be worn with a dress or shorts!! These are so cute with soft fluffy ears with cute little faces. The quality is really good too.

Any cat lovers out there?? These are just as cute. Again can be worn with a dress or shorts. The soft fluffy ears are great and love the black cat vibe. The little pink nose is nawwwww!!

Sporty socks. These are great for wearing under jeans or jeggings. I have these with blue stripes and black with white stripes. The red and blue are my favourite out of these. Plus they’re breatheable and not made to be clamy.

My other black knee high socks. These are just as good but a thinner material. Fab for under jeans and leggings. Plus great to wear on a warmer day, maybe not for winter though. I have these in a lovely burgandy.

And the final set. Not knee high but close enough. I got 3 of these. One a light tan, this baby blue and a soft pastel pink. I do have a problem with these though. My tan ones have began to fray at the top and I’ve only worn them once. Yet these blue ones get worn alot and they haven’t started fraying yet. Same with the pink.

Until next time my lovelies.

Fashion Book Collection (Reference)

Books. I love them. So easy to get lost in one or even find some amazing pieces of info about a subject you enjoy or even just have an interest in. Who doesn’t love the feeling of turning a page!! Or the smell of old books……bliss. Anyway onto the topic of the post. Personally I have a small (ish) book collection. With a smaller reference collection for subjects that interest me. Here is my small but steadily growing fashion book collection: 

These books are all fantastic in themselves. (I do have a quilt making book and a Gok Wan one but can’t locate them!!) I’ve always believed if you have an interest in a subject then you should always invest in that subject. It can be a career choice or just a hobby, as long as it is enjoyed then it is worth investing in. Besides I love knowlegde, and I love finding out new info that I never knew. I’m slowly becoming a common face at my local library or college library. 😋

Now to the books themselves. The dress making book was a gift from my mum 2 years ago, which I have used often. Mainly for reading but I hope to change that into more pratical work this year. It’s a lovely step by step guide on dress making with great instructions and amazing detail. 

The Coco Chanel is a beautifully illustrated piece about her life by the talented Megan Hess. She changed the face of fashion with her daring outlook and continues to be an inspirtation to aspiring designers. (Myself included there!!) Plus I love how it flows and gives key information into her life and work ethnic. While the book is short, sweet it suits the late designer perfectly. Short, sweet and to the point. I’d have loved to work with her, or learn from her. I bought this from Amazon when I saw it at work one night. 

Next are my 2 bible’s. The purple hardback is ‘The Fashion Book’ which is a great piece of the whole of the Fashion world. A mixture of photos and information on a whole list of people. Its an A – Z  of makeup artists, textile designers, photographers, models, jewellery designers, Illustrators, Retailers and even Icons. All these people helped change fashion through out history with their own creative flair. I got this tome from Waterstones last year and it has helped through college a few times. (Can’t remember how much it was!!! Sorry!!) 

My most recent purchase for this collection!! I’m so chuffed that I got this, simply because of the sheer amount of information thats in it. It’s a history book but of fashion!! A hard back that cost £30 from Waterstones. (Heads up……..my furry mosters have already took a few bites outta it!!) 

One of the pages out of this 480 page book. It spans from the ancient world to the modern era of how we currently dress. I love the sheer detail, knowlegde and work that has went into this book. I haven’t read all of it but it is useful for history of fashion and if you ever need so inspiration from an older era. (Now to find a book on corsets!!) 

I do hope you all enjoyed this little tour of some books that I do love.

Until next my lovely readers.

Kiko cosmetics haul!!

Hello gorgeous people. Hope your all enjoying the amazing weather today. I certainly am (rare day off!!) Anyway, I had an order arrive from Kiko Cosmetics. Which I had never heard of until I started blogging and instagram. (I know, I was living under a rock!!) U had heard loads of good things about the brand and wanted to see if their products were worth the hype.

image

And I may have went slightly overboard on the spending! But I just couldn’t resist all of the new products. Even got a liquid eyeliner (never used one before) some lovely nail colours, 2 gorgeous eyeshadows and some more lippie. (I’m a self confessed lipstick-a-holic!)

image

These are so gorgeous. Not exactly spring like, but I prefer darker colours on my toes and lighter shades on my nails.

image

I’m a lover of a dark bold lip, but the black lippie was just to hard to resist!! (Plus its really hard to find a good black lipstick!) And the packaging is also amazing for both too.

image

Again 2 darker eyeshadows, which I do prefer. Can’t wait to try them out, and eyeliner. (One is liquid, so this will be fun.) Plus eho can forget a trustie nail file made outta glass.

Do you beauties like Kiko?? Whats your fav product by them?? Xx
