OPI Peanuts Collection For Halloween 2014

22 Aug

I can safely say I have never been so excited about any collection as I am about this one. Peanuts have teamed up with OPI to bring us this collection for Halloween 2014 and I am counting down the days for it to land in the UK.

As a child I watched Peanuts on and off and I have a fond memory of when I first discovered it. I was watching Mary Poppins with my Dad and accidentally changed the channel to an episode of Peanuts which my Dad changed back to Mary Poppins after discovering my error. I was somewhat gutted as Peanuts being a cartoon I began to enjoy the few minutes it was on for and ever since then I have loved that show.

Since this collection being revealed and posted about on pretty much every beauty blog out there, I’ve started to watch Peanuts episodes and films again, and realised how much I loved it as a kid. I love it so much I even have my little Snoopy dog who sits on my bed. He’s so snuggly, nice to cuddle when you crave one and no ones around.

ANYWAY back to the amazing nail polishes!

Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues.

“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.”

There are four polishes in the collection:

Good Grief – A bright yellow shade, the same as Charlie Brown’s t-shirt.

To Be or Not To Beagle – A glitter polish with pretty much every colour of the rainbow inside! OPI have said “Snoopy’s happy-dance of colours in a joyful glitter.”

Where’s My Blanket??? – Another glitter polish but this one has black and orange glitter running throughout, perfect for Halloween!

WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? – A black creme polish that is meant to signify Lucy’s black hair.

If you wish to see swatches of these there are actually quite a lot out there on the internet now, but here’s a couple I shall link you to:

swatchandlearn (Good Grief) & (To Be or Not To Beagle)

cosmeticsanctuary.com

 beyondblush.com (WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? & To Be or Not To Beagle)

As well as buying these all in their full-sized individually you of course can but them in their mini forms in a gift box, which also comes with stick on nail decals too! I think these will be what I pick up, as let’s face it, I won’t use the full size polishes and if I really want to get one shade in the full size I already know it’ll be To Be or Not To Beagle.

These are said to come out in September, but seeing as they’re available over the pond already then I assume we won’t have to wait TOO much longer for them to arrive here.

I assume they’ll also be the same prices as usual £11.95 for a full size bottle and about £13.95 for the mini set.

I can’t wait for these to come out, soon as they do I’ll be buying them!

What do you think of this collection? Will you be buying?

Hope you enjoyed this post, until next time take care all!

Adventure Time Wish List

19 Aug

Image taken from weheartit.com

This is a random post, and not something I usually do… Well apart from at the start of each month!

Recently I have been reminded of my love of Adventure Time and upon a nerdy shopping trip to Forbidden Planet with my boyfriend a few weeks ago I decided to put a wish list together.

I will tell you now that this wish list is so big, it had to be edited into two pictures!

I don’t often bother doing wish lists halfway through the month, but I just want so much stuff lately that it would be hard to choose one or two things to add onto my monthly wish list.

Plus with school starting back soon I strongly recommend you head to Forbidden Planet if you love Adventure Time as much as I do, as they have some amazing stationery and school items there to choose from at the moment. I wish Adventure Time was around when I was a kid, I’d have owned so much stationary!

So without further ado, Adventure Time wish list time!

Adventure Time Wish List 2

Like most people who watch and love Adventure Time I do rather like BMO. They aren’t my favourite character from the show but they are likeable and I especially love the fact that they look just like an old Game Boy hand-held system. There are a few t-shirts that have been brought out with BMO’s face on but in my opinion this one is the nicest of the bunch. It’s a simple grey t-shirt with an image of how BMO looks when being assembled. Simple but lovely!

I have wanted this hoodie for months now and although I nearly bought it the weekend, the Forbidden Planet I went into were sold out… I was gutted but it meant I saved money! It’s a gorgeous cobalt blue hoodie that features an adorable image of Jake in the pocket, with an arrow saying “Jake’s in here”. This is from one of the Adventure Time episodes where Marceline asks Finn where Jake is, to which he opens his t-shirt pocket and there’s Jake. I know I’ll be getting this hoodie in the near future, for the moment though I’m probably going to be good and wait a while. I know I want it for my holiday, as I’d love to wear it in the evenings.

Image taken from weheartit.com

I LOVE this t-shirt! My boyfriend and I both love the song Jake sings about making bacon pancakes and whenever we make bacon, pancakes or even both we sing it. We love it so much we recently discovered a version of this song mashed with Alisha Keys “Empire State of Mind” which we both downloaded and now have as our phone ringtones. Sad much, eh? :P Anyhoo! This t-shirt is just perfect and whilst this is in the women’s skinny fit style, they do have this in a man’s design too and if I don’t buy this for myself I’ll certainly buy it for my boyfriend at some point. This post will feature some more making bacon pancakes items.

Adventure Time Wish List 1

I don’t exactly need a  new bag, but I have been contemplating getting a new one. This one is super cute and if you don’t get the design, I shall briefly explain! It’s a spin on the Studio Ghibli movie My Neighbour Totoro and as I love that film anyway this bag is just full of win for me. This bag isn’t available to buy until next Thursday (28th August) and I did contemplate pre-ordering it, but although I love this bag I couldn’t see myself using it… I shall see though! It’s just so cute and I’m sure it’d be huge so I wouldn’t have to worry about not fitting my whole life into it. :P

Just to say if you like this tea towel this is only available at Forbidden Planet as it’s an exclusive for those guys. I would snap this up straight away but this will be something I’ll buy when my boyfriend and I eventually move out together as I don’t think my family would approve! :P You can’t go wrong with a funky tea towel as I find it can really brighten up a kitchen (as long as it matches, of course!) and I would love using this especially when I had friends over.

This is the last making bacon pancakes piece, I promise! This is another Forbidden Planet exclusive, so if you want this, that is the only place you’ll be able to pick it up from. Like the tea towel I wouldn’t buy this until I had a place of my own, as I know my boyfriend really wants this, possibly a bit more than I do. I don’t use an apron at home when I cook as I’m not really a messy cook/baker. The only time I actually wear and use an apron is at work, where making a mess is inevitable! I would enjoy wearing this apron whilst cooking dinners, as well as doing some baking, but I won’t lie when I say it would just look nice hanging up on a baking cupboard in a kitchen to give it a bit of an edge.

As I am off on holiday at the start of 2015 I am extremely excited, so much so I am planning every little thing to as much detail as possible, my passport being included. I’ve never had a passport holder but I have been thinking that I might pick one up and out of all the Adventure Time ones I like the BMO one the most. I’ve seen these in Forbidden Planet many times and they do look really good quality for money and all the designs are gorgeous too. Everyone I’ll be going on holiday with will know which passport is mine with this! ;)

When I last visited Forbidden Planet I saw this book and was so tempted to buy it, but I was good and left it for another time. It’s basically a notebook where you write your secrets in, and I am a complete sucker for stationary, especially notebooks! The pages in this book are all designed nicely and it would be a pleasure to write things inside of. As well as that the way you secure this book is pretty cool, it has a standard notebook rubber band on it so that when you close it you wrap the band around the back of the book, so that people get confused when trying to open it… I’ve probably not even explained this properly but it’s hard to describe! Either way it’s amazing and I need it!

I heard about these amazing tins months ago through Ashes on YouTube as he received this in a mystery subscription box and I knew then that I wanted one of these! So I went on a YouTube search to see if I could find out anymore about these, where I found a YouTuber had made a couple of videos showing off each tin and what you got inside. These are blind tins so you won’t know which character you’ll get inside of the tin you buy. All the tins looks gorgeous and I legit want them all, same can be said about the characters you get inside the tins too as for the money they’re really well made and so beautiful! But I’d probably be inclined to wait until I move out so that I can have a little collection of them on a shelf, bookshelf, etc. These aren’t exactly cheap but from the videos I have watched they’re well worth the money! These aren’t out until the end of October but they are available to pre-order and I have seen these on eBay too.

So that was my Adventure Time wish list! I love Adventure Time, even though most people I know hate it due to how “annoying” it is. I only really discovered my love for it nearly a year ago now and I just wish I had discovered it sooner.

Do you like Adventure Time? If you do, let me know about it in the comments. Favourite episode, items you own, favourite character, everything!

My favourite episode is either when we first meet Fiona and Cake, any with Lumpy Space Princess or the one where we meet Jake and Rainicorn’s babies. My favourite characters (I can’t pick one!) are Jake, Fiona, Marceline and Lumpy Space Princess.

Until next time all, take care and I hope your weeks have started off well!

Dr Martens & Topshop Shoe Dupes…?

16 Aug

Today is a very different post from usual… It’s a fashion post! One I haven’t done for quite a while, sorry about that.

Recently I decided that I would like some new flat shoes, not your standard ballet pumps but something different, with a bit more of an edge and more tomboyish than your usual flat shoes, but something similar to brothel creepers (which I live in when I’m not wearing my ballet flats).

Dr Martens 1461 Shoe (Image taken from www.drmartens.com)

I had a look on Dr Martens website as whilst my favourite style of boot is of course their 1460, I have started to grow more towards their 1461 shoe too but at their £80.00 price tag, I knew I wouldn’t be buying any for quite some time. I wouldn’t necessarily go for the patent pair, as they just look a little too shiny, but I have linked this pair for a reason (as you shall see soon). These of course come in normal leather, different colours, different designs, etc. I’ve seen in the flesh myself how Dr Martens are made and although pricey, for £80.00 you are getting a well made pair of shoes that will last you a very long time! However you don’t wish to pay £80.00 for a pair of these then go to eBay! I bought my patent 1460 boots off eBay for less than £30! Yes they are second hand, but they were already worn in for me and are amazing. I’ve worn them loads since buying them so they were worth every penny for sure.

Topshop Kooler Heavy Sole Shoes (Image taken from www.topshop.com)

Topshop Kooler Heavy Sole Shoes (Image taken from www.topshop.com)

Recently someone I follow on Instagram bought these shoes and took a picture of them on her account and I instantly fell in love. Literally searched high and low for where she bought these from and eventually found out they were from Topshop, which I should have known really considering she works there. As you can see they look very similar to Dr Martens 1461 shoes, but the sole of the shoe looks a lot thicker, which I really like! Shoes have gone back to the 90’s the past could of years and instead of having a normal sole, they’d adapted to the double sole and larger! These shoes come in five different variations. You have white leather, blue box leather, black leather, black box leather (which is what the ones above are) and finally red box leather. So the choices are varied! They’re a little cheap than Dr Martens 1461 shoe at £62.00 and I was close to picking a pair of these up in the near future, as whilst it was still pricey, they seemed reasonable. I’ve bought Topshop shoes before and I love them a lot! I bought my Chelsea boots from Topshop and whilst buying them was a nightmare they were worth it and I look forward to wearing them again in the autumn.

However, there is a dupe pair for both of these shoes that are less than half the price of both of these shoes, can you believe it? Well start to because I introduce to you, my new shoes…

DSC_0003

These are from Primark and guess how much they were? You guessed yet? These babies only cost me £14.00. YES! You read correct, £14.00!

Whilst having a mooch around Selfridges with my best friend and my boyfriend we had a look at the Primark section at what they had, as we were too lazy and not brave enough to venture to the actual Primark store. I found these and tried them on and I won’t lie, they were a little tight when I tried them on but this was due to the laces not being adjusted to my feet yet, plus the fact they’re new shoes. I took them to the till and couldn’t wait to get them home to try them on once again!

Now it’s been a week since buying these and I’m only just starting to wear them in so I can’t really comment much on the shoe itself, but I can say a few things about them.

DSC_0004

First thing, they are gorgeous to look at and whilst they will take some breaking in and more than likely blister my ankles, I think these will be lovely once that process is over and done with. I’ll make sure to wear thick socks and plenty of plasters!

These aren’t a plain style like the Dr Martens 1461 shoes and the shoes from Topshop, they have a brogue style on them, which I really like as it just looks that little bit more tomboyish, which is always a look I go for for when autumn and winter are upon us!

Of course being £14.00 shoes, these aren’t real leather which doesn’t really bother me and as you can see, they are patent which is nice. It’s a lot easier to clean than leather/pleather too.

The grip on  the bottoms of these are crap, I won’t lie. But I didn’t expect the grip to be amazing so I’m hardly surprised, thus it doesn’t really bother me, but for those who may think the grip on these will be amazing, you’ll be disappointed! I’m sure with some wear these will get a natural grip.

DSC_0009

I know exactly what I’ll be wearing with these shoes, plenty of black, grey, navy and wine coloured pieces! Black skinny fits with some patterned socks will look amazing, alongside with a shirt for a smart look, or a baggy jumper for a laid back look. I’d also team these up with tights and a pretty dress… Black of course! These would also look amazing with a jumper dress for a slouchy and laid back look. I actually can’t wait to do a look with these on my blog in the future.

DSC_0010 1

Overall I love my new shoes and I hope they’ll last me a while for £14.00! If they happen to be worn a lot and sadly decide to fall apart on me, I could see me purchasing the Topshop or the Dr Martens pair. I have wanted a pair of shoes like this for a long time and I’ve finally picked them up!

So, would you splurge out on a pair of these shoes, or save some pennies and go for the cheaper and more cheerful option?

Let me know in the comments!

I’ve really enjoyed writing this post today, I hope to have some looks featured on my blog in the future with these shoes.

Until next time, take care all and have a good weekend.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet – Review

12 Aug

DSC_0001

After nearly a months wait, I’m finally reviewing the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet, one of The Body Shop’s newest releases, and may I add one of the best for a long time!

I remember reading a review for this months ago from a Canadian blogger I follow Beyond Blush and it really did sound like a product I needed in my life, especially during the hot summer months. I didn’t even know at that stage that this would be coming out in the UK, let alone that it came out less than a month after her review.

So when this came out in the UK last month I decided to pop into The Body Shop to check it out, as well as the new Body Sorbet (you can check out a review for that here!) as I knew I wanted to pick them both up ASAP.

I tried out the sample for this and I won’t lie I was 50/50 on whether to buy it there and then or not, so I bought the Body Sorbet and had a walk around town thinking about whether to not to go back and also buy this… In the end I did go back and I’m really glad I did as I am now in love with this moisturiser!

DSC_0007

When it comes to moisturisers I always tend to sway towards ones with a gel consistency, as due to my skin type being combination sometimes a lotion whilst moisturising  my dry areas can often leave my t-zone feeling even oilier than it needs to be. As well as that I also feel that lotions don’t sink in as well as a gel does, especially in the summer when everywhere is humid and warm.

The fact that this is suitable for all skin types is awesome, but it’s just perfect that it’s also a light formula that moisturises for up to 24 hours! Can’t get better than that, eh?

I’ve tried The Body Shop’s Vitamin E range before and it really is lovely to use, as someone with combination skin I do recommend you check the range out.

DSC_0002

DSC_0003

DSC_0005

As I mentioned, this moisturiser does have a gel consistency but it’s thicker than a gel, which is why I think it being called a sorbet is pretty spot on. It’s light to the touch and a little bit of this really does go a long way, would you believe I’ve owned this a month?

It also has a pleasant and light scent to it too which I can’t really describe, but it reminds me of rose-water… Even though I doubt that is what it smells like! Nothing worse than when you use a moisturiser with a strong and vile scent.

It doesn’t take long for this to sink into the skin and within a few rubs it’s been absorbed into the skin. Not only does this leave you feeling moisturised, but it also leaves you feeling cool and refreshed too due to its gel like consistency. This does really leave my skin feeling cool and hydrated and has quite frankly been a life saver this past month with all the hot weather.

This is said to have a matte sort of finish to it that is meant to leave your skin looking less oily and such, but I wouldn’t claim this for sure as whilst this does leave my skin looking slightly less oily, I wouldn’t say it leaves skin looking matte and my skin isn’t even THAT oily so maybe it’s not true…

DSC_0006 1

Please excuse me looking rubbish, it’s my day off, I’m having a duvet day and I don’t wear foundation… (Go me and letting it all hang out!) BUT my skin would usually look worse without this product. Since using this I have had far less break outs, my skins oiliness has seemed to improve a tad and I no longer suffer from dry and tight feeling skin. Maybe this is also due to the weather being so nice lately but either way I have seen an improvement to my skin and I really am pleased about that!

Now onto how much this costs, and I won’t lie when I say this isn’t cheap… At £12.00 for a 50ml it is on the pricey side but I have replaced my Elemis moisturiser for this so… What does that say? The Body Shop always have offers on in store, as well as codes you can use from Voucher Codes so you’ll probably end up picking up a bargain if you pick this up anyway. As I mentioned, you don’t need to use a lot to make this go a long way and at £12.00 I would usually put it back down and say “Nope isn’t worth it” but I’m glad I did pay the price for this as it really is worth the money and my skin has actually improved due to it.

Overall I am really happy with this and I think I have found my favourite moisturiser now. For £12.00 it’s worth every penny, especially during the warmer months and even when it isn’t warm this is a refreshing and extremely moisturising product to use on my face and one I can see me re-purchasing over and over again! I know I’m already going to be taking this on holiday with me as it’ll be perfect for the hot weather there! Finally as this is for all skin types, anyone can try it and I recommend you all do!

Go and check this out in store if you like the sound of it! I definitely recommend it, and I know I will do time and time again.

I hope you enjoyed this review today, if you have any questions please feel free to ask them on my comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I’ll see you soon.

P.S. Just want to say here how gutted I am about Robin Williams’ death. It’s a great loss of an amazing actor and comedian and my heart goes out to his family. Rest in Peace.

Holiday 2015!

10 Aug

Image taken from weheartit.com

I’m finally going on holiday! After nearly 10 years I’m finally getting away for a bit and whilst I am extremely anxious, I am also extremely excited!

I’m going to my second home, Fuerteventura and I really can’t wait to be back to somewhere that I have missed for a very long time.

I’ll be going with my boyfriend and my family and as well as going on holiday I’m also excited to be going with my boyfriend as this will be my first holiday with a partner, let alone with him!

I’ll be going pretty much the day after my birthday, which is really nice and I’m rather excited about it.

As I haven’t been on holiday for so long I actually can’t remember what sort of stuff you should pack, what stuff you can’t take, etc. But I know my family, friends and having a look at some blog posts will help me sort that out.

Image taken from weheartit.com

I can’t wait to try some surfboarding there, get a tan, listen to some music, read a couple of books, go shopping, go on lot’s of adventures and finally ENJOY MYSELF!

The past two years have been pretty blah and rubbish so I think this holiday has been a long time coming and something I really can’t wait for, I won’t want to come home!

Over the next 4-5 months until my holiday I’ll be on the hunt for some holiday clothing, some good reads, as well as holiday essentials, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Gosh I am super excited! Now all I need to do is get a passport… Yes I don’t have a passport, yet anyway.

Image taken from weheartit.com

I hope everyone has had a good weekend, I know this has rounded off mine nicely!

Take care all, I’m off to do some holiday window shopping. ;)

August Wish List

7 Aug

My wish list for August was without a doubt a really hard one to put together. Some months I’ll want everything I can get my hands on, and others I won’t want hardly anything. There are quite a few items at the moment that I really want and some I’m not so fussed about. I am trying my best to save money at the moment, but the past month has been tough, with needing to buy my new glasses, as well as other mishaps along the way. However at this moment in time I’m able to start saving again and trying my best to be good (which I’m sure won’t last that long!) so as usual, spending ban or not I am going to keep on wishing for things that I probably won’t buy… Yet anyway. :P

August Wish List

  • Etude House Peel Off Base Coat.

I discovered this nail polish base coat on eBay recently, whilst trying to find another peel off base coat. I’ve heard quite a few reasonable things about Etude House and whilst I have never tried their products myself, I could see me picking this base coat up. Basically you apply this to the nail like a normal base coat, apply your nail polish on top (this is designed to remove glitter polish easily so…) and then a top coat. When you’ve had enough of your polish you just peel it off of the nail, simple as that! I could do with this for my glitter polish, as well as my average nail polishes as I would love to be able to wear polish days after work, but it can be so awkward with the faff of removing it before work or after an evening out. This wouldn’t break my bank at £3.50 either (P&P included!) so I think I shall be ordering this pretty soon.

  • New Look Blue Paisley Print Crochet Hem High Waisted Shorts.

I spotted these shorts on a blog post by ellistuesday and fell in love with them straight away! I popped into New Look in Milton Keynes to try them on and possibly buy them, but I discovered they had none left in that store, nor any of the other New Look stores I could go and continue my search at. So I haven’t bought these… Yet! I have seen them though and they are gorgeous and I really do want them. I’d wear them both in the warm and cold months. In the warmer months I would pair these with a white vest or t-shirt and in the jumper with a cream jumper, or a burgundy jumper. I’d order these online, as that’s the only place that stocks my size at the moment… Although in truth I am in two minds about whether to order these or not. We shall see!

  • Born Pretty Holographic Nail Polish in shade #10.

Another nail polish found on eBay, oh how I love eBay, you can find some complete bargains on there (jots down in notebook “Must make a blog post about eBay!”). I stumbled across quite a few of Born Pretty’s holographic nail polishes that I liked the look of, but out of the small few I fell in love with, this is by far the shade I want the most. A gorgeous ocean blue shade, this blue holographic nail polish would look gorgeous for a summer holiday, as well as some scale patterns painted on to make them look very mermaid. I only have one holographic nail polish and I really do crave  more! This costs less than £4.00 including postage from eBay which I think is a complete bargain!

  • While (1<2) by Deadmau5.

I am a MASSIVE fan of Deadmau5 and he’s an artist I listen to quite a bit so when he announced a new album earlier this year, I got super excited! Now it’s out and I’ve only heard a couple of tracks from it, crazy huh? I basically just want to wait until I own the album to listen to all of the songs from it. I do really need to pick up more of his albums, as whilst I own them I don’t physically own them… If that makes sense. xD But either way I really can’t wait to pick this up soon.

  • Britney Spears Fantasy Twist.

As Midnight Fantasy is one of my favourite perfumes and over the years Fantasy has grown on me, it sort of makes sense for me to pick up this twist set, doesn’t it really? Both of them together are 50ml, but of course are 25ml each. I really would like a perfume that I can throw into my hand bag before I head out of the house in a rush, as well as before work and these just seem perfect! These won’t break the bank for me to buy either at just over £20 too, especially with the discount that you can get from Voucher Codes. I could really do with some new perfume, I’m slowly running out and it’s making me sad!

  • The Body Shop Banana Shampoo.

This was something I’ve just recently spoken about on my July favourites and I have to say how much I do really love this shampoo! I do not as of yet own it, but I can see me buying it this weekend. I bought it for my boyfriend as part of a huge anniversary present and he loved it, and so did I when I tried it out. It leaves your hair feeling soft, smooth and shiny as well as smelling amazing! For £4.50 this shampoo wouldn’t exactly break the bank and it really is worth the  money. I recommend giving it a sniff when you’re next in The Body Shop, especially if you love the smell of banana as much as I do.

  • Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Berry Bomb.

When the Baby Lips first came out, I KNEW I needed to try at least one of them, after them being ranted and raved about for years. Finally when I gave these a go I did enjoy and love using them, but this love soon faded. I’ve only recently come to fall in love with them all over again and I already know that I want to try Berry Bomb, for a few reasons. I wear a lot of dark pink lip colours, which border on purple sometimes and whilst I’m working or out and about I do like to top these up with lip balm and this dark pink/purple lip balm would work perfectly with those! Plus I assume it smells and taste of blue berries… Or at least I would hope so!

  • Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Forbidden.

I recently read a review for this liquid lipstick and I fell in love with the colour, so one afternoon in July whilst I was shopping in town I went and swatched Forbidden for myself and I just fell in love even more. It’s a gorgeous baby pink shade, that surprisingly suited my yellow skin tone. I nearly bought it there and then but I knew I needed to save money, so I left  it. Sadly it’s now rumoured to be discontinued, but once again eBay has come to my rescue! God bless eBay, I swear. I have heard bad things about Illamasqua’s liquid lipsticks but quite honestly I don’t care if this doesn’t last that long, as the shade Forbidden is divine and one I need in my collection for sure.

Now this is from the old Hello Kitty collection, that came out in 2008/2009, I’m not 100% sure but I remember craving after that whole collection as a teenager, and sadly I never picked up a single thing from it. I remember wanting Big Bow lipstick and this lipglass. I found a seller online who has these for sale, brand new in the box, for less than £10. Legit and everything my MAC loving friends! I was close to buying this on Monday after hearing some rubbish news, but I didn’t and decided to be good. I have so many lip products at the moment that I never know which to use next! I can definitely see me buying this soon mind, as I would wear the hell out of it over the Christmas period.

So those are my wish list bits and pieces for August! What have you been lusting over at the moment? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and see you soon.
