Maybelline Gel eyeliner review...

Hi Everyone, I haven't done a makeup review in a long time and I've been dying to review this little gem for ages! I got it a couple of weeks ago in Boots, I was looking for a new black liquid eyeliner and I have always been curious to try gel eyeliner. It was on special offer at £5.99! I think the usual price is £7.99 or £8.99 I love the packaging..I think it looks simple & sleek. When I first got the jar out of the box I thought it was very small but when you get down to using it you realise how little you need! It comes with a brush, which I'll admit..I have been using! You can achieve either a thick or thin line. The texture is creamy & dries fast, to me this goes on like a dream! It says it lasts 24hr with no transfer & I'm happy to state that for me both is true! Of course I haven't left it on for 24hrs but I'd say a good 9hrs without budging is good enough for me! If you wanted to try a gel eyeliner or your looking for a new one I highly recommend!!

Cute things come in 3's...

I stopped in Claire's Accessories after work & saw this gorgeous minty green polish on sale for a £1! Usual price is £3. It dries really quickly and I'm in love with the colour...

My Blythe doll Converse trainers came today..eek!...They are sooo cute! She looks adorable in them..I will change her outfit tonight to show them off!

Lastly, my mummy went to the shops and came back with a present for me..the baked & delish magazine with free silicone cupcake bases...The colours are so pretty and I love to bake pretty things every now and then!

Let me know if you have any yummy cupcake recipes for me to try! :)

New Hair!!!

Hi Dolls, So I finally went to the hairdressers! I cut my hair into a slightly layered bob!
I had at least 5niches cut off!...5 inches I tell you!!!
I was a bit sad to see it all lying on the floor but I love the result and my hair feels and looks so much healthier!
Let the project healthy hair begin!
So stay tuned to read reviews on hair masks, styles, heat protectent etc! Yey!

Today is sunny here in the UK so I went for a Spring style today, loose tousled waves with my newest piece...my bow clip.
Basically I wanted to make a bow clip that looks like your wearing a usammi headband! Some people like the look of a usammi but wouldn't really wear them so I came up with a more subtle, easy to wear solution!
What do you think?

Toni&Guy tourmaline wave and curl tong

Hi, Today I went to Boots after work in search of large curling tongs..Basically I'm on a new healthy hair mission this year!..My GHD straighteners have fried my hair and I'm hopefully getting it cut next week!
I will then be growing it ready for Summer.
I'm not saying I will never use them again because lets face it, they're so good at creating different styles and at top speed to!
But I am going to use the tongs more as I feel its less damaging..(well I'll have to wait & see)

I picked Toni&Guy 38mm tourmaline wave & curl tong..it was £19.99 I thought being Toni&Guy it would be allot more!
The barrel is pretty large!
It has 25 different heat settings so it won't be as hot as straighteners therefore less damage, 3meter swivel cord which is always handy, it's so annoying when the cord isn't long enough! And it heats up in seconds..everything I was after.

Larger barrels are known for not giving tight curls but I needed it more for flicks and extra volume...

I used it today..(headband now available in my Etsy) In this picture I only used Superdrug heat protectant spray before..

I'm really pleased with it, with more product you could achieve more of a curl but I like the subtle bounce it gives, what do you think?
Over the next few months I will be doing allot of hair posts, trying new masks, shampoos & herbal supplements..please leave me a comment if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear your hair routine too ;)

Turqouise,Neon & Cowboy boots...

Hi Dolls, So I woke up this morning to gorgeous sunny skies! Doesn't it make such a difference to your mood?

I thought today I'm gonna rock some colour!
Starting with nails BarryM spring green 290 It looks a little toned down on my picture but trust me its bright!
I cut my nails short yesterday as they grow so quickly..seriously..they will be long in a few days! I'm really loving this polish!

I'm wearing black leggings as it's still cold, mini denim skirt distressed and slightly ripped, long grey tee & my favourite leather & suede cowboy boots.

It's all about the tuck...

Only wearing one piece of jewellery...my new Turquoise wire necklace, Light & minimalistic. This outfit reminds me of the 90s (that's why I left off a belt) Modern 90s edge!

On my lips I'm wearing BarryM 54 a gorgeous neon coral lipstick..I love this..I wore it all through my Hong Kong holiday..it reminds me of my Blythe dolls lips! This is allot brighter than shown below, my silly camera!

What are you gals sporting on your lips & nails at the moment?

Saturday Night Fever

Hi dolls, I made a new head piece the other day that I wanted to share with you, It reminded me of Saturday Night Fever! The complete 70's era..which is all over the shops right now & big for summer.
Wouldn't you just love your own giant disco ball?...

Here is the newest addition...Saturday Night Fever headpiece..This can also be worn as a necklace! I love the gold chain against the rainbow crystals...Ahh Freak Out!

This would look fab dressed up for a night out with this ASOS dress...

Or dressed down boho chic..a la Nicole Richie with cute denim short..This would be a great and original piece for all the Summer festivals!

Are you guys into the 70's vibe this Summer? :)

Nails & OOTD

Hi Dolls, Quick post on today's nails & outfit... On my nails today I'm wearing Accessorize polish in shade Aztec. As you can see it changes from purple to green to gold etc..I'm kinda loving it!

My outfit today was blue skinny jeans, black baggy-ish vest and my long grey Lycra cardi..it's still freezing outside!

My hair turned out pretty well today..a sort of layered bun! I'm afraid I couldn't capture it on camera, It's so hard taking a picture of your head!
I kept jewelery simple with my crystal drop earrings and gold bangle.

(excuse the mess in the background) Do you recommend any other accessorize polishes? Let me know :)
