Weekend Wishlist

Weekend Wishlist

1 2 3 4 5

For the past few weeks, I've had a real weakness for patterns, as you can tell from this wishlist! I've been lusting after kimono's for a while, and this gorgeous one from New Look is beautiful, perfect for layering up in the evening after a warm night!
Another thing I feel I need in my life, is a bowler hat. I don't know why, but I am constantly trying them on, and deciding I need one in my life. I refuse to pay £20 for one though, so I'm really hoping Primark get some in stock soon!
I have a love/hate relationship with trousers. I love how they look, I hate how they look on me. I'm hoping to try this beauties on and be surprised at how much they suit me, but we'll see......

What's on your wishlist this weekend?

Review: Nails Inc for InStyle - Bluebell


So, as the sun has started to shine on our tiny section of the world again, I thought it was only appropriate to paint my nails in a suitably summery colour. As I was perusing my massive nail polish collection, I came across this little gem. As you can probably guess, this polish came out with InStyle over a year ago (I'm guessing,) and I've barely used it - maybe twice - nor can I remember what the polish itself was like. So I decided that it was about time I gave it some love!

It took two coats to be opaque and dried quickly - which is great for such a fidget as I. As soon as wet polish touches my nails, I suddenly can't keep my hands still! The polish lasted for 3 or so day without chipping at all, which is about average, but by no means terrible.

A pretty baby blue that is more perfect for spring than Summer, I shall definitely be showing it more love now I have rediscovered it!

Have you got this polish? What do you think? x

Make-Up Of The Day


I thought I would show you a make-up look I tried a few days ago! It's not dissimilar to my normal make-up look, except I added a flick of Lush's 'Motivation' to the end of my eyeliner, and used one of my brightest lip colours - Maxfactor's Colour Elixir in Vibrant Pink.

The addition of blue didn't make too much difference, apart from making my eyes look a bit more colourful, never a bad thing! I tend to do the same sort of thing all the time, quite neutral make-up, eyeliner flicks and a bright lip colour, but I want to try different eye looks. This is a small step! If you have any ideas of different looks I could experiment with, let me know! 

Look how bright my lips are! The pictures don't do it justice, this is definitely the brightest lip colour I have ever owned and I love it. I adore bright pink lips, and this is the epitome of bright pink. Perfect for me! What do you think?

Barry M Liquorice Confetti


So, today I thought I would show you one of the new(ish) Barry M Confetti polishes. I chose this colour because it was one of the more neutral of the range, and can work better with lots of different polishes!

I wasn't too sure what to expect from this polish, but I'd say it is quite similar to a glitter top coat. I used two thin coats to get the coverage above, although I do think it would be possible to apply it thickly enough that it is entirely covering your nail.
Like a glitter nail polish however,  it is incredibly difficult to remove, which I did not expect.
Despite this, I definitely will be using this a lot, it makes a nice change to just having one colour on your nails.

Have you tried any of the confetti colours? What did you think?
