Currently #5

Since the end of February my life seems to be really busy… I mean REALLY busy! Mixture of work, and personal life. I can’t really go into detail as to why it’s so busy at the moment, but soon I’ll hopefully be able to!

It’s currently my day off work, and I’m going to spend most of it in bed, catching up with my blog, and watching stuff on Netflix… Oh and not forgetting pole fitness later too!

Watching: I’ve watched loads of TV shows lately, but I recently discovered a new one called We Bare Bears. It’s a newish children’s TV show on Cartoon Network, but I only discovered it last Saturday. I watched the whole season one, and so far of season two and I really do love it! I prefer it to Adventure Time at the moment… The humour is great for both kids and adults, which I love. My favourite character is Ice Bear, but I can relate more to Pan Pan.

I’ve also been watching some old favourites I loved during, and after university, such as Mongrels and Him & Her. Currently watching the latter. I used to relate to Him & Her for agggges when I was younger, and I somewhat still do to this day. It’s just an amazing show, and the way it’s filmed in a fly on the wall style makes it feel more personal, which I like about it the most. Sadly this series ended a few years ago, and I am still yet to pick up the DVD’s!

Reading: I haven’t been playing many games lately… Well not really anyway. Not because I haven’t wanted to, but purely because I really haven’t had the time! But I have recently picked up my Nana manga again, and I forgot how much I loved it! I’m currently on book 14 out of 21 so I have a while to go yet! I’ve also been reading my Bee & PuppyCat comic book. I’ll probably try and finish my Nana manga series off soon so I can start the Sword Art Online manga fairly soonish.

Listening: I haven’t listened to Evanescence for quite a long time, and recently listened to them driving to and from work. I don’t know how I neglected my favourite band for so long, but I’m glad to have listened to their work again! Fallen is still my favourite album ever, and I can’t wait to have it blasting from my car windows in the summer!

Eating: I haven’t really eaten anything special at the moment… I made me and Dane a macaroni cheese last night, with some of the fresh pasta that me and one of my co workers made that morning. It was delicious, and I added turkey ham to it as well! Nommy nom! I also made us some creme brulee… I say made, but I bought them from Sainsbury’s and then shoved them in the oven with some sugar on top. They didn’t have that nice crack on the top, but they were hella delicious! I have done nothing lately but drink tea, and I don’t know why! xD

Wearing: I have been living in Dane’s tartan pajama bottoms lately… They’re just so damn comfortable and baggy and actually, they really compliment my body. Clothes outside of my house wise, I’ve been living in Dane’s Funeral For A Friend hoodie. It’s just so damn comfortable, and I’m glad he hasn’t asked for it back yet… Nearly three years later! I seem to be living in Dane’s clothes instead of my own.

Wanting: Seeing as I’m on a semi spending ban, I am trying so hard not to buy things. My wanting/wish list is pretty huge at the moment. The one thing I am excited and REALLY want however is the new Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick shade he’s just revealed, Scorpio! It’s a grey purple shade, and exactly what I’ve been after for quite some time! So as soon as that comes out I’ll be ordering myself one. Other than that at the moment I have been lusting after a couple of rain macs from Marks & Spencer. They’re gorgeous bright red ones… But I can’t bring myself to buy one. I need to watch my money. 😦

So those are my currently at the moments! I was going to do a life lately post to have a bit of a catch up, but with not being able to reveal much of what actually HAS been going on at the moment, there wasn’t much point.

I do apologise for being so quiet on my blog lately, as I said at the start of this post I’ve been incredibly busy lately so as soon as I get a day off, or a chance to breathe I use that time to do things I need to do… That sounds mean to my blog but I don’t mean it that way. I don’t make money from my blog. I do from my job!

On that note, what are you currently loving? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

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

Aromi Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in Miss Mauve – Review

dsc_0005_zps60uu09jv

I don’t feel like I’ve written a lipstick review in FOREVER! That’s probably because it was! What with graduation, holiday, new job, Christmas, New Year, AND my birthday, I don’t feel like I’ve had much time to review anything.

I haven’t really owned this lipstick for long, but I already know how I feel about it, and just had to write a review up about about it today. I cannot wait to share this with you. EEK!

dsc_0014_zpsk75adlt6

Aromi Beauty is an American beauty brand, who are both cruelty free and vegan! I only heard of them through one of the many lipstick related Instagram pages I follow and decided to look further into them. I wandered over to Cocktail Cosmetics website to see if they stocked their liquid lipsticks, and low and behold they did! So I ended up ordering the shade Miss Mauve for myself.

The Aromi liquid lipsticks (like all of them do) go on like a lip gloss and dry to a matte finish.

When I applied this I was worried about it not living up to the same standards as the Jeffree Star velour liquid lipsticks, as they are pretty much the best ones on the market right now. However, whilst this isn’t exactly the same as the velour liquid lipsticks, I found they were better in some ways, which I shall explain.

As usual this arrived super quickly from Cocktail Cosmetics, and I couldn’t wait to wear it for work the next day. I applied this quickly in the morning before I left the house, and then headed over to work. I got nothing but compliments on this shade, both from colleagues at work, as well as customers. I also received compliments via my Instagram page, with people saying what a gorgeous shade this is. I have to agree on that! πŸ˜›

dsc_0006_zpsj11qr17a

I’ll start with the look of the lipstick first, and then talk about the product itself. I have a lot to talk about with this one. I’m going to compare Miss Mauve to my Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, just so if people own those and want something to compare to, you can!

dsc_0011_zpssdlvhztf

The first thing I noticed about the tube is how it’s a lot longer than the Jeffree Star ones, and contains a gram less of product. The Aromi contains 4g, whilst the Jeffree Star contain 5.6g. The prices are also a pound different on the Cocktail Cosmetics website with the Aromi being Β£13.00, and Jeffree Star being Β£14.00. As you can see I have taken a picture to show the sizes of the tubes alongside each other.

The Aromi Beauty liquid lipsticks have a sweet vanilla scent to them, which isn’t overpowering, but just the right amount of scent for it to smell delicious. I hate when lip products smell and taste super artificial. It just puts me off using the product. When applied to the lips however, the scent isn’t noticeable to me, and I can’t taste anything either.

dsc_0008_zps0opnzuvv

dsc_0007_zps9ahatqaw

There is one thing I’m unsure of though when it come to the size of the tube, obviously the wand is also long. I’m used to one half the size, but this being said I didn’t have an issue, as it just reminded me of a lip gloss I would have used years before as a teenager. The doe foot applicator is a standard one you find on most products, which I really liked. I felt it made it easier to line my lips and cupids bow before applying the product all over the lips. I usually need to use a lip liner with my liquid lipsticks, but this one I didn’t need that at all.

That leads me to talk about applying the product. I actually found it a little easier than with the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, which saved me a bit of time when in a rush in the morning for work. It’s a more watery consistency which I found glided a little better when applying to the lips, and after it had dried it felt a lot more natural on the lips and comfortable, as if it isn’t even on my lips in the first place. Drying time is quoted as one minute, which is accurate.

L-R: Jeffree Star – Masochist, Aromi Beauty – Miss Mauve, Jeffree Star – Hoe Hoe Hoe

As I stated at the start of this post, I picked up Miss Mauve, as the name states, a mauve shade. It’s a gorgeous browny purple shade, which can be worn from day to night. I’ve been wearing this for work and it just looks gorgeous, and stands out against the normal nude, pink, and red shades that most people wear. I’ve swatched it alongside Masochist (review here) (on the left) and Hoe Hoe Hoe (on the right), both shades are by Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

For the five hours I wore this, and drank water I never had any issues with it fading from the middle, or outside area of my lips. An issue I have recently discovered with the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. It states on the packaging to steer clear from oily foods, so after I ate my lunch at work (chips and a chicken burger, go me and eating well eh?!) I thought I would end up looking like a clown… Alas I was wrong and the lipstick had hardly budged! Again, this is an issue I have had with the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks. When I wore Masochist the day before I wore this, I looked like I had been eating raspberry jam, and it resulted in a trip to the bathroom to remove it all. What a shame. 😦

I applied a little more of Miss Mauve where needed and headed back down to finish my shift. Four hours later I got home to discover it hadn’t budged still and looked as good as it did when I left the hours nearly nine hours prior to starting my shift.

Like all liquid lipsticks, they can be a pain in the arse to remove. There are meant to stay on all day don’t forget! I use an oil based make up remover to remove my liquid lipsticks, and I found I didn’t need to use much effort to remove these. I do find I have to do that with the Jeffree Star ones. Which isn’t a bad thing! It means they’ll last a long time, but when you want to get them off after a long day, you don’t want to have to scrub so hard on your lips you irritate them, do you?

Time for a couple of snaps of myself now, one of me being silly. πŸ˜›

dsc_0016_zpsuciolw8c dsc_0019_zps4okoilbp dsc_0021_zpsoqtfl46k

As you can probably gather, I love Miss Mauve! I might buy more from Aromi Beauty in the future, just because of this liquid lipstick alone. I didn’t find any cons with it at all, they’re all pretty much pros. The price is great, wear time is perfect, has a nice scent which I like, the formula and the way it works for me are bang on, and the shade is just what I was after.

I’m trying to move towards something different from reds, and pinks at the moment this mauve shade is just perfect for me. I can see this being my go to lipstick for work.

What do you think of Aromi Beauty, and Miss Mauve? Will you be giving the brand a go? Let me know the comments!

Until next time, take care all.

2015 Top 5 Favourites!

Well at midnight tomorrow 2015 will be officially over, and a part of me is so damn happy. I hated this year for various reasons, mostly due to stress, and my anxiety going from good to worse. Alas, 2016 is looking bright already and I really hope it is my year to improve myself and begin a new and exciting life with my boyfriend.

However, something I did like about 2015 was my blog, and how much it has gone from strength to strength. One of my regular monthly posts being my monthly favourites, and I couldn’t go without mentioning all my favourites from the year.

So here are my favourites from 2015!

  • Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer

If there is a product I have discovered this year and truly fallen in love with, it is this one. I used to only use this on my t-zone where my skin would look shiny. This has a matte affect to it, so it was leaving my oily t-zone go away. However, I didn’t find it was working just on my t-zone so I started to use it all over my face, and it worked a hell of a lot better! I’ve nearly finished my first tube now, but I have another one already which I bought before I went on holiday. I have used this throughout the year, and it’s always done wonders for my skin.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Masochist (review)

I LOVED Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks this year! I haven’t owned Masochist and Hoe Hoe Hoe THAT long, but even so I love them. I get nothing but compliments about them from people at work, people in general, family, and friends. They just stay on all day long, and look gorgeous and eye catching too. I hope to own more of these in 2016… I’m after the Valentine’s Day shade next, and Abused.

  • Dior Addict Eau de Parfum

My mom bought me this perfect at the start of the year whilst we were on holiday and it is probably one of my most reached for scents this year. I really can’t describe what it is like. So I’ll just insert a quote from The Perfume Shop here, “A sophisticated oriental fragrance with a floral heart, for the passionate, intuitive woman who ignores dictates and follows her own rules. The Dior Addict attitude is best incarnated by its compelling heart note of the Jamaican ‘Queen of the Night’ a rare and elusive flower that blooms only for a few hours and is considered the soul of enchantment. Intensely seductive.” It is a very unique scent and reminds me of a mature, sweet smell. It’s right up my street either way, lasts for ages, and I can’t wait to wear it more throughout 2016.

  • L’Occitane Zesty Lime Hand Cream

I own so many of these hand creams and I only realised recently whilst having a clear out of my beauty drawer. I took one on holiday with me to use everyday and it was really lovely to use. I haven’t been using it so much at home since I got back from holiday, but this seems to be one of the only things that keeps my hands lovely and soft, even with my eczema flaring up! It also smells absolutely amazing, really zesty as the name suggests, and fresh. I have the lip balm to match, which is really to use nice in the summer, the same with the hand cream really.

  • MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder

I received this powder for Christmas from my mom last year, and I still have some left! Even if I have hit pan… This is an amazing pressed powder and one I was going to repurchase, but my mom has bought me a new one by Laura Geller. It’s just so smooth to apply to the skin and a little bit really does go a long way. I use it over the top of my POREfessional primer and it sets it for the day! It has a handy mirror inside too so when I used to have this for on the go it was really handy. I intend to finish this soon and I’ll probably buy myself another one soon enough, as for just over Β£20 it is a complete bargain for how long it has lasted me!

So those were my five favourite products from 2015! I would have mentioned more, but I wanted to make it look more condensed down to beauty products I really loved, and couldn’t really live without in 2015.

I will of course continue with my monthly favourites, the next one being at the start of February now! They will remain to be 5 top items of the month, like what I did throughout 2015.

What were your favourite beauty products of 2015? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until 2016, take care all and have a Happy New Year! ^_^

November Favourites

I am currently on holiday, but that isn’t stopping me from getting my favourites post written and scheduled on time like I always do! I’m actually writing this up the early hours before I fly… I’ll still get a lie in of course, but I won’t allow for my blog to miss out on posts… So my sleeping is missing out instead.

That probably makes zero sense, but it makes perfect sense in my half asleep, exhausted state. I graduated earlier today which was amazing, but more on that when I get back from my holiday as I want to talk more in depth about how it went, as well as show off what I wore.

So onto my favourites for November. Still cannot believe it’s December now! Not long until 2016.

  • Victoria’s Secret Body Mist in Snow Mint.

This is actually from last Christmas, but this is just how long it has lasted me since I bought it a year ago. This is a limited edition scent that only comes out for Christmas in Victoria’s Secret. I love the smell of this, it reminds me of sweet candy canes! I’m a massive fan of mint scents so when I first gave this a sniff it was right up my street. This has come back out again this year too, so if you like the sound of it you can pick it up! The packaging is different now however, so make sure to keep eyes peeled for it. What I love the most about this body mist however is how long it lasts for! I find most you’ll spritz yourself with them, and the scent disappears after a couple of hours. I’ve sprayed this on me before going to work, and when I’m getting changed at home after a long shift I’ll still smell of it! Due to this I especially love to use this after a late bath before bed, so I can smell of it all night.

  • Lily Flame candle in scent Fairy Dust.

Oh my I have been after this candle for years! First in the tin, then as the reed diffuser, and now I finally have it in the glass jar version! I picked this up on a whim when I was in Waitrose one afternoon after work. I always go and have a nose at the candles in there as they always smell amazing! They had this beauty and I just couldn’t leave without it. I can’t even describe the scent to be honest. It’s floral, but a little musky and sweet too. I hate floral scents to be perfectly honest with you, but I think this is the sort of candle where if you hate floral, this is a must have because it has all those notes, but just something else in there too! This wasn’t cheap to be honest at Β£12.00 but when I want something comforting after a long day at work, this has been what I go to. I definitely want to get the reed diffuser soon.

  • Lush Reindeer Rock Soap.

I love Lush, as regular readers will be aware of, and I especially love this soap. So far this year this is the only Christmas item I have picked up. Not even joking. Why (after I was so hyped about everything)? Because I am on a Lush ban! My boyfriend actually bought this soap for me after he treated himself to some goodies from there, and kindly offered me to have one thing. I picked this. I kinda wish I had picked up Yog Nog soap instead, but I am happy with my choice nonetheless. I picked up a bar of this last Christmas and the formula and colour of it has definitely changed somewhat. The one last year was burgundy, this year it’s a rich, dark purple. I don’t know which I prefer to be honest! Either way I’ve been using this soap none stop and I’m actually sad I can’t buy this whilst on holiday otherwise I would pick one up there to use as well.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade HoeHoeHoe.

I LOVE this lipstick, and to be honest I can’t wait to review it when I get back from holiday! It’s a beautiful deep red shade with pink and purple shimmer running throughout. I haven’t been able to wear it as much as I’ve wanted to due to a very painful cold sore, but before and after that I wore this all the time. I have noticed it isn’t as good as Jeffree’s permanent line (this one is out for Christmas as limited edition) but I’ll save all those details for a review!

  • L’Occitane Shea Zesty Lime Hand Cream.

I first picked up this hand cream about a year ago as a sample in a magazine. So I had one full size tube… Then I picked up a free one thanks to a voucher in the same magazine, making me the owner of two full size tubes, and then after all that my mom went in store to buy something and got given a set for free, with a matching lip gloss/balm! So now I own three of these bad boys. It was so long ago that I got these that I completely forgot that I owned them, and to be honest they have done my hands wonders these past couple of weeks. The weather has dropped in temperature and my eczema prone hands have really taken it hard. The Lush hand cream Love & Light (review here) really hasn’t done anything for my hands which I’m rather sad about. Thanks to L’Occitane my hands will keep soft and supple throughout the winter. I really want more of these in the future, especially the vanilla scented one!

So those were my favourites for November! What were you all enjoying using last month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and see you when I get back from holiday!

October Favourites 2015

I can’t believe it is now November! It only feels like yesterday when I started my masters, and that was well over a year ago now. I graduate the end of this month, and I have another holiday to look forward to with my dad. I have now began to notice it’s feeling colder now, and it’s time to wrap up in my winter coat. I cannot wait to team it up with my Dr Martens.

But for now, I am talking about my favourite from October. It was really hard finding five products to talk about this month to be honest, but after much thought I finally found them, and here they are.

  • The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Sugar Body Scrub.

After using up both of my most recent Lush body scrubs (Rub Rub Rub review and Ocean Salt review) I decided it was time to pick something new up. Whilst having a look around The Body Shop at their sale (as well as some present ideas for my boyfriend) I noticed that some of their previous summer range was in the sale, both Sweet Lemon and Vineyard Peach. So I picked up both of the scrubs, out of the two mind this one is proving to be the better of the two. After using it my skin feels silky soft and smelling delicious! I really wish this was a permanent product though! I’ll be making sure to try their other sugar body scrubs out in the future.

  • Philosophy Sugar Plum Fairy Shampoo, Shower Gel, and Bubble Bath.

I’ve owned this stuff since Christmas 2012 but I’ve only just opened it as I wanted to save it for Christmas, or even for summertime. It’s a gorgeous scented multi-purpose product from Philosophy which is a real treat. I’ve been using it mostly as a bubble bath for evenings when I really want a nice hot bath, but I don’t wish to use my Lush products. It leaves a nice gentle scent on the skin and a little bit of shimmer. It’s perfect for Christmas, and was a limited edition for Christmas too. I don’t actually think you can buy this anymore, which is a shame as I love it so damn much! If you can get your hands on this, I recommend it! You can check out my review from back when my blog first came to be!

  • Reese’s Lip Balm.

I didn’t think I would love this lip balm as much as I actually do. It was an impulse buy when me and my boyfriend popped into Primark about a month ago. I don’t even remember what we bought when we went there but alas, we were there. I spotted this on the till and for Β£1.50 my boyfriend picked one up for me. We love anything peanut butter flavoured, and as I LOVE Reese’s Pieces, he thought I would like this. It’s a petroleum jelly style lip balm that doesn’t just smell of the famous peanut butter cups, but even tastes of it! It’s not the most moisturising balm in the world, but it does the trick if I want to quickly apply something whilst on the go, before work, or even whilst I’m at home. I’m going to be buying some of these for people for Christmas, they’re just so amazing!

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace EDP.

Ooo two Philosophy products mentioned this month! This is one I got halfway through the month, and it’s one of my favourites out of the five this month. My mom picked this up on a special offer from QVC in a massive gift set, and kindly gave this perfume to me. Years ago I owned the Amazing Grace shower gel, and the body lotion. I used to use them both every day, and whenever I saw my gran she would always comment how lovely I smelt. So the scent always reminds me of her, so to finally own a perfume version of it is just a dream come true! I wore it loads the first week I got it, and as it’s a huge 125ml bottle, it will definitely last me ages! I recommend the Philosophy perfumes if you fancy trying something new, especially as the grace scents are really gentle and soft. Perfect for daytime wear.

  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Masochist.

This is by far my favourite product this month, so I’ve made sure to save the best until last. I am due to review this at some point this week, if not next week! But I have worn this quite a lot throughout October and without giving too much away, it is by far one of the best lipsticks I have ever bought. MAC is my favourite for lipsticks, don’t get me wrong they won’t ever be replaced but Jeffree is a really close second. They last ages, the shades are out of the world (especially the new Christmas ones due for release on Friday!), and they are just amazing. I cannot wait to own more, I really can’t. I don’t want to say too much on here as my review will explain it all.

So, those were my favourites from October. To think there is only one more monthly favourites post left, and then I’ll have my 2015 favourites up on my blog. It’s been such a fast paced year and before we know it, it’ll be 2016 and I’ll be turning 26. OH WOE!

What have been your favourites for October? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and hope you had a great weekend.

Currently #2

I know it hasn’t been too long since the last currently list (just over two weeks to be exact!) but I felt the need to do another one, as I have currently been doing, and loving so much stuff! All whilst working a lot… Which is the reason I’ve been so quiet on my blog lately.

Watching: I’ve been watching Jackass again lately. Every time I re-watch it I am once again reminded how much I love that damn show, but at the same time I forgot just how much I miss Ryan Dunn. As well as Jackass me and my boyfriend recently downloaded the Crunchy Roll app, and we are in love with it! It’s an app like Netflix that allows you to watch anime, as well as Japanese drama, and regular readers will know how much I love all things Japan (apart from octopus balls… Ew) so this app was a definite must have for us. Thanks to the app I was able to finally watch Himouto! Umaru-chan, something I have wanted to watch for AGES! It’s an anime about a high school girl who outside of her house and in school appears to be perfect, in every way. However as soon as she goes home, she turns into a lazy, gaming nerd. That is legit me… Apart from the perfect in every way… That isn’t me. πŸ˜› BUT it is such an amazing anime and I am already a huge fan. I recommend anime fans to check it out ASAP. I’ve linked a video above with the introduction to the show. I don’t want to link anything that will ruin the show for anyone.

Playing: There’s one game I’ve been playing loads this month and that’s Lego: The Hobbit game. I had neglected it for a while until recently when I decided it was time to finish it… I’m not even halfway through it… DOH! I loved The Hobbit films, and although a lot of people disliked them, they were my favourite out of the Lord of The Rings series… Please don’t hate me LoTR’s fans! Alongside that me and my boyfriend finished Life is Strange, after the last episode came out last week. I’ve loved that game so much, and I really want to play it from start to finish soon. The story was amazing, and the way it ended was incredibly sad and not at all predictable like most games, movies, books, etc are these days. I recommend Life is Strange if you like gaming, especially games like Heavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls where you need to choose how the story ends.

Listening: I honestly haven’t listened to much different from I usually do… I usually listen to Bloodhound Gang of late, but alas this hasn’t been the case the past couple of weeks. On my drive to work and back I’ve had my iPod on shuffle, but this being said a certain band has stuck out lately, and I’ve listened to them quite a bit not just in my car, but also in my boyfriends car. I grew up listened to Limp Bizkit’s album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water (gosh, what a mouthful!) so whenever I listen to it now it takes me back to when I first started to discover nu metal/rap metal and how much I loved it. To name a few of my favourite songs from the album would have to be, “My Way” (which is my favourite Limp Bizkit song tbh…), “Livin’ It Up”, and “Getcha Groove On” (which I have linked above in a YouTube video as it’s my favourite song from the album).

Eating: I’ve been eating so much Japanese food lately, it’s crazy. With the new Grand Central opening in Birmingham, and also a new Yo! Sushi opening up in there too, me and my boyfriend thought we would treat ourselves to Japanese food there. Only to do the same again the weekend after, but at a Japanese restaurant in Coventry called Chi Bar. My friend also wanted to visit the new Yo! Sushi, so I went again, and like before we also went to the Chi Bar that same weekend too! It sounds really bad eating so much Japanese food, diet wise, but oh my it was so worth it! I’m such a fan for the sumo bowls at Yo! Sushi, as well as any flavour gyoza. Yummy!

Image taken from weheartit.com

Wearing: I’ve still been wearing my Dr Martens boots loads, but sadly they have been giving my feet a bit of trouble so they’ve been retired for a few weeks to allow my feet a much-needed break. Instead I have been rocking my Star Wars Vans again, a pair of shoes that I have been loving all of 2015 so far, and I know this will continue. They’re so perfect and easy to wear, with any outfit really. I really want to pick up another pair, just incase my current ones fall apart or anything worse! I do however have some new Vans, which I will be showing off on Friday!

Wanting: Honestly there isn’t all that much I am lusting after at the moment… Which comes as a shock to me to be perfectly honest. πŸ˜› If there is one thing I really want right now, it is one of the Christmas shades from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, this one of course being Hoe Hoe Hoe. It is a beautiful dark red shade, with pink shimmer running throughout. I haven’t seen anyone else do this with a liquid lipstick, and not to mention it is very beautiful! I’ll be ordering one as soon as they are put live on Cocktail Cosmetics website!

What things are you currently into? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below. I apologise that I have been so quiet lately, I am now working full-time at work again so I am trying my best to try and juggle work and my blog. It’ll all be okay! ^_^

Until next time all, take care and I hope all my readers are having a lovely week so far.

October Wish List

I know I say this every month, but I just can’t believe how quickly this year has flown. It’s now October and a whole month since I finished university. My favourite month has passed, and it’s now only a couple of months until Christmas and New Year… And also until I turn 26. Oh woe!

I really need to watch my money this month, but at the same time October is appearing to be the month where everything I want to buy is coming out, so we shall see how that goes… But for now, here are the items I am lusting after this month!

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Masochist.

I have been lusting after one of Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks ever since they came out, but I have never splashed out and made a purchase because I’ve never really settled on one shade that I wanted. However now Jeffree has brought out the shade masochist I know I want this in my life. It’s a gorgeous raspberry pink shade, which is totally me and one I would rock throughout autumn and winter, maybe even spring and summer evenings. This has been available to buy since the end of September, but I’m going to wait for Cocktail Cosmetics to bring this out for sale on their website. It just works out cheaper all round. I know my mom really wants to try this shade too, so we’ll both be giving it a go when I buy it.

  • Disney Store Star Wars Sweatshirt.

I saw this recently on the Disney Store website and I really liked it, but soon forgot about it. Recently browsing around the website for some cute things I stumbled upon it again and it’s something I would love to pick up when the weather gets really chilly and I just want something to snuggle into whilst lounging around the house. I’m not the biggest Star wars fan in the world, but since a young age I was brought up to love Star Wars and I still do to this day.

  • Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer.

This is now officially out, and MINE! It came out yesterday and I made sure to pre-order it so that I would have it on my doorstep for when I got home from work. I remember this being announced at E3 and I was so excited for a new Pokemon game to be announced, but it wasn’t. This however made up for it. I love the Animal Crossing games and own them all apart from the wii version. I wanted to pick up the limited edition 3DS XL to go alongside this game but alas, I’m poor. I have however picked up the NFC Reader/Writer so I can scan the gorgeous new Animal Crossing amiibo Cards. I’ve also ordered those too and I can see them becoming an addiction… Which isn’t good when they cost Β£4.99 for one pack. So I ordered three packs for under Β£13, which isn’t bad. It’s a real treat and I haven’t been playing my 2DS lately so I’m excited to start if back up. My whole weekend will be spent playing this game me thinks.

  • Iron Fist Bat Royalty Dress.

I love a good Iron Fist dress, and as my holiday is coming up, as well as Christmas party season I do have my eyes peeled on picking up something new… I think I may have found it. This is a gorgeous black dress, with a sheer burnt out fabric that shows off some gorgeous gothic and Halloween style patterns of bats, moons, stars, and some other patterns. This isn’t cheap though, so I’m going to keep my eyes on the price to hopefully drop. I can’t find this for sale on Iron Fist’s website and have actually found this through a seller on eBay. I’d rock this with some tights, boots, and a snuggly jumper, or my spiked biker jacket.

  • Yankee Candle in Snowflake Cookie.

If there is a season of Yankee Candle’s I love, it’s definitely the Christmas ones. They just remind me of Christmas, as well as other things, and to me they just smell the best. I still have just under half of a jar of Candy Cane Lane left, which I refuse to use again until I get another jarΒ  to burn. I just can’t wait to be able to pick up another Christmas candle to burn. I’m super excited.

  • Shopaholic To The Rescue by Sophie Kinsella.

I LOVE the Shopaholic series so when I read that the next installment would be out only a year after the last, I was so happy! I’ll probably pick this up before I go on holiday so I can read it whilst I’m there and this isn’t out until the end of the month anyway, so I have plenty of time to pick it up. The way the previous book ended made me so mad as it meant that I would need to wait for the next book to come out, which I thought would be in another couple of years. I’ll be buying the hardback again, as I just can’t wait until March for the paperback.

  • Skinnydip London Glitter Unicorn iPhone 6 Case.

I’ve been eyeing this phone case up since I saw it being spoken about over on Becky’s blog Milk Bubble Tea. It’s such a cute and beautiful phone case, and one that is selling out FAST. It has unicorns on it and water glitter inside so when you move the phone, the glitter moves too! These styles of phone cases are popping up everywhere at the moment, and now I’m lusting after one myself. This isn’t the cheapest phone case ever, but I have a discount code I can use on it, so I may just order it now it’s back in stock! I don’t know if I can resist this for too much longer.

So that is my wish list this month! I really don’t need to buy anything off of it as I’m so skint at the moment, and need to really start saving up for my holiday, as well as to try and get a deposit down on a house. Oh the joys of being an adult, eh?

What’s on your wish lists this month readers? Please let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time though, take care all and have a great weekend!

August Wish List 2015

I’m not going to lie. I’m skint. Not like “Oh my god I have noooo money!” Like seriously, I’m poor. Help?

So I really shouldn’t make a wish list this month, but I would feel weird not to. This is definitely a wish list as I can’t really afford anything on the list. I’m going to try and go on a spending ban until I get a better job as I only recently realised how I’m getting by on next to nothing in my current job.

But, as I said, I can still make a wish list and not buy anything that’s actually on said list. Can’t I? πŸ™‚

  • Yankee Candle Salted Caramel Small Jar.

I’m kinda running low on my Yankee Candle’s at the moment. But to be honest unless I REALLY want a certain scent, or their on sale or have money knocked off, then I’m not buying any anymore. This is in sale for Β£4.00 and I’m tempted to stock up on them to keep me happy for a while. I have liked the scent of this candle for a while, but I’ve just never caved in and bought it and whilst it’s cheap I am really tempted… But alas, I do need to save money… Sad times people, sad times.

  • Nintendo New 3DS XL (Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer Limited Edition).

This isn’t out in the UK yet (and I’m not even 100% sure if it WILL be coming out in the UK!) but it is out in Japan tomorrow and I’m pretty jealous of them right now. This is the limited edition New 3DS XL that is coming out to accompany the new Animal Crossing Game, Happy Home Designer. I’ve already pre ordered my copy! I would like to get my hands on the new 3DS in the future and if I can get one as cute as this, I don’t see why I shouldn’t.

  • Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Abused.

I want to first of all say, apologies for the name of this lipstick… I didn’t name it. The name of this is causing a stir with people, especially due to the shade it is too. Personally it doesn’t affect me but I can understand why it is upsetting a lot of people. That aside, I do really want this shade. I’ve wanted one of Jeffree’s lipsticks for ages now and this is my number once choice. When I was younger I used to wear blue lipstick all the time! I got bullied for it terribly and ended up stopping wearing it, and now everyone is wearing it. What a joke… This is a gorgeous navy blue, which you could get away with if you wanted to get a shade close to black. I bought a black lipstick recently and whilst I love how it looks when on, I feel to scared to wear it out of the house. However, I would love wearing this, especially during winter. It’s not cheap though, so I’m going to wait until I can find it at a decent price.

  • iPhone 6 Case.

As you have probably seen in the image above, there’s an iPhone there. So of course with a new phone, comes a new case. I need a case like this for work to ensure if I drop it, it would remain safe and unharmed. I wanted something a bit different to my current red one for my iPhone 5, so when looking around eBay for something different, I found this one. I love The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, so I knew this would be perfect. What makes it better is it’s cheap as chips for Β£3.00 something.

  • Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub.

Although I said I need to save money, this is something I’m probably going to pick up pretty soon. Not because I want it, but because I need a good scrub and I’ve had my eye on this one since I finished my Sugar Crush scrub. I’ve tested it in store before and it really did feel like it was scrubbing my skin without irritating it. It also smelt amazing, which you can never complain about. OH and it foamed up a little too, which is something I always look for in a body scrub. I would also like to try Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub too, as I have used a sample of it now and as a multi purpose product it got two thumbs up from me. Gosh, like I haven’t bought enough from Lush this past month! πŸ˜›

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Visions of Georgia Green (Coca Cola Limited Edition Line).

I really liked the Coca Cola collection that OPI came out with a year ago, and own some of the shades from the first collection. A couple of collections later and OPI are bringing out another to symbolise Coca Cola being around 100 years. They’ve brought out a green and a silver shade, I’m talking about the green shade, Visions of Georgia Green here. It’s a beautiful green metallic shade with shimmer running throughout. Looks gorgeous on its own, and I’m sure it’ll look lovely applied over a green or black shade. I wouldn’t like the big bottle, but either way if this ever goes down in price I’ll be picking it up.

  • Apple iPhone 6 in Gold.

This is the last thing I’ll be talking about on my wish list, because it’s totally the best one! I’m hoping to get a new iPhone in a week as I’m due a new contract deal. It’s not that I don’t like my iPhone 5, it’s just I want my own phone. One that’s actually mine. My previous one broke due to being faulty in manufacturing and instead of being given a new one as a replacement, I was given a crappy refurbished, second-hand one. Which also didn’t work. So then I was given my phone now, which is perfect! I guess it’s an excuse as well to get the new one. I already have an awesome and cute case for it (the Eevee one mentioned here) and everything. So I just want to get one now, so I can say I have one and show it off and all that jazz. When I get it, I’ll make sure to write a post relating to iPhone’s. πŸ˜‰

So that was my wish list! I can’t believe it’s August already, can you? What things are on your wish list? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care all and have a great week.
