Tiffany & Co nails

Hi Cupcakes, So here in the UK the weather is poo! Very grey skies and alot of rainy spells, It feels like the summer has gone..So I decided to paint my nails with BarryM Minty as I will be wearing more A/W colours soon.
I painted my little fingers white using BarryM white. I still like to paint random nails different colours to make it more original and edgy. After I'd done it it reminded me of a Tiffany box!..How cute?!

To bang or not to bang?...

Hi Dolls, I've been wanting to do something different with my hair recently..I've decided I'm going to cut more of a fringe/bangs (for all my US readers)
I'm quite fussy with fringes..I know what suits my face shape and features so I'm not going to cut it too bluntly.
I've googled some pics of various celebs for fringe inspiration! I LOVE Kate Moss's and Nicole's as there's something 70's about them.
I like the style of these because I'll still have the option of sweeping it to the side or part it in the middle. I'm going to cut it myself too! I always cut my own side fringe so I'll just work off of that..I will post pics before and after..keep your fingers crossed for me!
Do you guys ever cut your own hair? Let me know what you think of the piccies :)

It all started with a lamp...

Hi Gals, My sister ordered the NEXT catalogue and I found myself flicking through the home section last night and....I have fallen in love with a lamp!..Yes a lamp.
I love it. Its £45 and it comes in different colours but I love the champagne colour as pictured below.
So if you guys watched my room tour video (on my blog..haven't been brave enough for YouTube yet) It's very shabby chic. I know this would look fab in my room if I tweak certain areas and of course this is where the obsession starts! I'm already thinking of different wall colours, shelves etc. I've googled a few pics for inspiration.
What do you lovelies think?

BarryM Mushroom

Hi Girls, I decided to paint my nails today with BarryM mushroom..I can't decide if I like it or not! The second picture is more accurate for colour. I only applied one coat as the coverage was great and I felt a second would make it darker. Has anyone else got this? What do you guys think?

Soap & Glory product review

Hi Poppets, I got some Soap & Glory products for my birthday and thought I'd share my mini review on them with you. They have there own website but you can get them in larger Boots stores.
Most of my friends have tried different products of there's but I never had up until recently.
The first thing you notice is the packaging, very retro and girly which I like.
So the products I got were hand food, glow job moisture lotion and sexy motherpucker lip gloss. Glow job (ha,ha..yes I am that childish) is a moisture lotion with micro-bronzer beads built in. The beads burst when rubbed in and add the bronze colour to the moisturiser. It's a nice colour that I feel would suit most skin tones, the only downer for me is that I have oily skin so after an hour I felt too shiny! This is a great quick fix to a no make up day when your running to tesco and just want a little "glow"
Next is hand food. Non greasy hydrating hand cream with Shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow. This smells lovely, It's scent is very sweet, it reminds me of freshly washed hair! It is not greasy at all, I only apply hand cream at night before I go to bed so I personally don't mind a more rich cream but for people who like or need to apply it daily this would be great.
Lastly is the sexy motherpucker clear lip gloss. My lips are quite full so this would definitely benefit thinner lips but be warned that it does sting! There are certain ingredients to make the blood flow to your lips causing them to swell slightly. This would be great to apply before a night out to give them a plump affect.
I think my favourites so far are glow job and hand food, I've also read great reviews on there body lotions, so I might give that a try in the future.
Have you tried any Soap & Glory products?

New fringe necklace

Hi Dolls, I made a gorgeous new fringe necklace today and thought I'd share it with you :)
It's a gorgeous pale/minty green colour that would look gorgeous against all skin tones.
These are so versatile, you can team it with so many outfits!
I have pictured below how I wear mine. I'm still loving chic blazers, so I teamed mine with a long one pocket grey t-shirt, black blazer and black leggings. Dark brown knee high boots, black gem ring and dark grey aviators.
This is available in my Ebay
Let me know what you guys think...

Tribal Necklace (from my handmade collection)

Hi Cupcakes, I've been hard at work today making new goodies!
I'm sure alot of you are aware that 'tribal' is really big at the moment. I really like it but didn't find that much on the high street so I wanted to make my own range! Let me know what you think. I personally love it :)
The turquoise looks great with a tan too!
I've also made a matching arm cuff, I have made some other gorgeous headbands and some new belts which I shall share with you tomorrow.
I ship internationally too. :)
If you would like any of these pieces they are available HERE.

Holiday style

Hi Dolls, Hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a fab one, I went out to celebrate my Bday and it was such a fantastic night..I will post about my outfit next time as still sorting out the pictures.
This post is a little one about my holiday in Greece, I wanted to share with you how I wore (or wear) my black maxi dress. Mine was £15 from New Look!
I teamed it with a vintage brown belt, gold and wooden bangles, my favourite black and gold square ring and of course my 3strand gold coin head piece and arm cuff. It looks stunning with black and gives my outfit an original touch..I got so many lovely comments from people out there : ) They are available in my shop I ship internationally too.
Also the food was lovely, I tried a few new things that I am going to make including a simple dip which was made with blended feta cheese, garlic and olive oil! yummy..Take a look at the yummy pork and fried pitta bread below...

Birthday pressies

Hi Poodles, I thought it would be nice to do a little post on some bits I got for my birthday.
I got the Sleek eye palette in storm which is lovely, there are two matte brown colours and the rest are shimmery. I also got MAC Ruby Woo which is a gorgeous matte red lipstick. I tested this on Monday and I am soo impressed! It did not budge until I removed it with face cream!
Next I got Gwen Stefani perfume and a matching watch! I love it, it's so cute and I've never seen anyone wearing it, I didn't even know you could get watches :)
I am also pleased I got a huge 250ml Dermalogica special cleansing gel..already my skin is nicer! I also got some skin prep scrub samples.
I love candles but whenever I'm buying them myself I always get the pack of scented t-lights but my mum got me a huge heavy glass candle and it's ice cream scented! yummy!
Lastly I got DVDs..Law & Order criminal intent, I love this show! and The Vanishing which is a great thriller..if you haven't seen it I recommend it (its very creepy)
I had a lovely day relaxing and then I went out for dinner in the evening. I'm going out this Saturday with friends so I will post an OOTN at the weekend.
I'm off now to have a nice bath using my special cleansing gel and then watching Law & Order in bed! More posts tomorrow :)
