H&M inspired outfit

Not going to lie I love to just have a look on clothes websites all the time even though a cant afford to spend money. I was having a nose about the H&M website yesterday and  as you know I'm on a hunt for a dress. So when I was on the website I came across this lovely ivory lace detailed skater dress I immediately fell in love. They also do the dress in the same colour as the blazer above but I liked the ivory colour more. So when I saw this I decided I would put together an outfit with other items from the H&M website. I'm not sure if these items are all sold in store as well but I know they are on the website. Obviously. I just knew I had to put together an outfit with this dress, so that's what I did. I personally think this dress would look lovely paired with this gorgeous green blazer ( I've just looked on the website and this colour is now out of stock and they have been put down to £9.99) so that's annoying because they don't have the colour I wanted any more but I'm sure there are others about. I will link all the items below so you can check them out. Anyway then I would pair the outfit with some lovely black heels- any black heels but I only liked the look of this pair on the H&M website.


 Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Id just like to say a big thank you for all the lovely support my lovely followers are giving me it means so much, I know all blogger say this but I honestly mean it. I wouldn't enjoy writing posts as much as I do if I didn't have you guys supporting me.

Just some nail art 001

Okay so as you might know I love painting my nails all the time, what you might not have known is that I love doing nail art in my spare time which I have quite a lot of since I made a stupid mistake and didn't apply for college for various personal reasons but lets not get in to that on here. After my cupcake nail post got a lot of great and positive comments! I  thought now was a great time to show you some of the other nail art I've done.

Now  I know I'm not the best at nail art but if you want any tutorial posts on how to do any of these then please just let me know I will be more than happy do them for you. I'm sorry these pictures aren't the best quality but its the best I can do at the moment.

Really hope you enjoyed this post let me know what you think and if you want tutorials.

I honestly don't own any dresses except like one or two from like two years ago. I wouldn't say I'm really the dress kind of girl so these are a bit out of my comfort zone. I really think I need to start wearing them more and then maybe I'll start to feel more comfortable about wearing them. Like all girls I don't really like my body but I just need to get over that step and then ill feel better when wearing dresses. Anyway on to what the post is really about - I've been looking online recently and fell in love with some dresses. I'm actually trying to find a dress for my boy friends birthday at the end of November. (ages away yet I know but I'm just trying to find the right one) Here are some dresses I've either fallen in love with or taken a like for I guess you could say.

001 - This dress really isn't something I would normally go for but I just love the way it looks online, I'm yet to try it on so who knows whether I will like it or not after I've tried it. I think this dress looks kind of dressy? but I think it will look lovely with a pair of black tights and either some flats or heels. I love the lacey part of this dress I just think it make the dress look that little bit more interesting I guess. I also love the fact it covers your arms, that will just make me feel that little bit more comfortable - Not that I really hate my arms. To top of this wonderful dress the price is even better its only £7.99! from H&M which I think is brilliant so I'm all up for buying this dress if I like it as much once I've tried it on.

002 - This dress is the Lattice waist  flippy dress from topshop. Its £38.00  and its kind of a skater style dress. As soon as I saw this on the website I fell in love. Other than the cut out in the waist it is everything I look for when I'm looking at dresses. I love the skater style as you will soon notice , I think it looks cute. The sleeves on this dress just makes it look that bit more cute. I am really thinking about buying this one it just looks gorgeous.

003- I saw this dress on newlook and its another one of those dresses that I just fell in love with immediately. The top part of the dress actually has lace detailing on it which I personally think looks gorgeous. The skirt on this dress made me want it even more, not only is it chiffon material but I'm loving the Burgundy colour at the moment I just think its the perfect dress for autumn/winter time. Again I think this dress would look perfect with some black tights and some heels, I even think this dress will be perfect for Christmas and new years. This dress prices at £27.99 which is great as it is such a beautiful and detailed dress.

004- Finally this is another dress from top shop and again its that gorgeous burgundy colour. I wouldn't say this is a dressy dress but its perfect for everyday and would look so cute with some ankle boots and frilly socks and maybe a blazer over the top. This is actually my least favourite out of the four but I still like it. You can actually get this in grey as well. The price of this dress is £26 which I think is a bit much for what it actually is. Its just a basic t-shit dress I guess which you will probably find cheap ones somewhere else - Please let me know if you've seen any cheaper ones in other shops, Id be really grateful.

Here are the links to all the dresses mentioned:
001 H&M dress
002 topshop lattice waist flippy dress
003 newlook 2 in 1 skater dress
004 topshop speckle roll sleeve mini dress

Hope you guys enjoyed this post.
 what is your favourite out of the four?

Nail of the day 005 :Cupcakes

I've been dying write this post all day but I've only just got round to doing it. Lets just say today hasn't been the greatest but I'm not going to say on here because its personal. Anyway today I went a bit well a lot more adventurous with my nail varnish. I decided I'd do some nail art on them and chose to do a cupcake on one of my nails. I would be more than happy to try and do a tutorial post on how to do this but I feel there's more than plenty about   - but let me know and ill do it if you guys want me too.

Birthday wishlist

So its my birthday in 23 days. Yes I'm counting down already! I thought i would just  do a post of some of the things i am hoping to get.

001. Body shop Vanilla body mist - I went in to the body shop yesterday and smelt this as everyone raves about it! I now understand why its gorgeous. Its not too expensive either , i think its something like £7 which is a great price for the amount you get.

002. Stila written in the stars eye shadow palette- I like most girls love neutral colours on my eyes , they are suitable for everyday. When I first saw this palette i fell in love its perfect for my everyday neutral eyes! This palette is around the £15 -£17 mark.

003. Models own Indian Ocean  nail polish - This nail polish has been raved about a lot and I'm in love with it without even trying it. Every time i go in to boots i go and pick this up and stand there thinking should i buy it but i haven't yet! Its a gorgeous blue/purple colour and I've herd so many good things about it. Its only £5 which i don't think its too bad for a good nail polish.

004. Diesel Loverdose perfume  - I first smelt this perfume when my friend had it at school and i always asked to use it. It smells devinne. I've been wanting it ever since then. This perfume is around £30 which is great for an amazing perfume.

005. Models own Ibiza mix nail polish - I've also been lustering over this nail polish for a while. I've seen loads of people with this over the top of their nail polish and it just looks gorgeous. I cant wait to get this myself. Again this is only £5 which is great.

005. The perks of being a wallflower book - I've actually already read this! I like most other people that have read this fell in love with it. I loved it so much that i want my own copy of it. Its an amazing book and i cant wait to read it again. If you haven't read this yet you should go pick up a copy and read it now! You can get this book for about £6-£8.

There are some of the things i have asked for for my birthday! I am not expecting it all and i will be very happy with what ever my family and friends get me.
If you would like a birthday haul after my birthday obviously. Just let me know in the comments.
What do you think of these products? Have you tried any of them?

Review: Benefit BadGal mascara

 Today I'm going to be doing a review on the Benefit Badgal mascara. I like most bloggers got this free with the Glamour magazine in July ,after spending a while choosing which free product I wanted - I'm so glad I chose this. I have fallen it love with it , which I guess is a good and a bad thing because I may have found my holy grail mascara but the price for the full size is a bit expensive. I think its something like £16.

Most reviews I have read on this product have been mainly negative and people haven't liked this but I am very happy to say that I obviously love this mascara!
First of all I love the packaging of this mascara it looks so sleek. The wand in this mascara is quite big as you can see but that's the type of wand I like , so I suggest if you don't like that stay away from this mascara. I find this mascara gives my lashes lots of volume and makes them look incredible. The best thing about this mascara is that it looks so natural and leaves your lashes looking curled all day and also it doesn't flake off like some mascaras do.
I really do think I'm going to have to just pay out the £16 for this mascara or find a new favourite. I will let you know if i find a new one or buy this one.

Have you tried this mascara? What did you think of it?
Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if want more review on products I've tried.

Tag: This or that?

Hey guys!
I've never actually done a tag on my blog before but I came across this one on natalielovesbeauty 's blog and you can see her post here.

Blush or bronzer? 
Well definitely blush, if you know me you will know i love my blush. I don't tend to wear bronzer as I find I'm actually too pale for it. Which is a shame.

Lipgloss or lipstick?
Lipstick! I don't really get on very well with lipgloss because they are usually too sticky and I don't like my lips really glossy, I do love the BarryM lipglosses though!

Chapstick or lip butter?
Honestly it has to be chapstick I'm obsessed with them. A bit sad I know but you always need them so you can never really have too many! I've never actually tried a lip butter before but would love to so leave recommendations below please.

Matte or shimmery eye shadow?
I'm stuck in the middle here because I love both but not too shimmery but I guess if I had to choose between them it would be matte. I just love the look it gives.

Gel, Liquid, Cream or pencil eyeliner? 
Well I actually only wear eyeliner on my waterline so it's going to have to be pencil.

Foundation or concealer? 
Concealer! That was a tough one but I can live without foundation.

Liquid or powder foundation? 
Liquid just because of the range of coverage it gives. I don't really like using powders if I'm honest.

Neutral or statement eye?
Neutral obviously! Who doesn't love neutral eye shadow.

Pressed or loose shadows?
Pressed , I hate using loose shadows there just way too messy for me.

Waterproof or non waterproof?
Non waterproof. Its so much easier to take off.

Brushes, sponges or fingers? 
Honestly brushes. Its so much easier to apply everything with brushes. Id love to know what i did without them!

Powder, Cream or liquid highlighter? 
Powder! They give a lovely look to your face. I didn't get on well with the liquid highlighter I own.

That's it, I tag you all to do it!
Hope you enjoyed reading this.
