April Favourites ’17

Easter holidays are over, all the chocolate eggs have been sold or are still on sale in the shops, and Mini Eggs won’t be back until New Year… This is the saddest thing for me. I fucking love Mini Eggs! 😛

But we’re into May now and happy May Day! I’m off work for a change and I intend to spend the day doing sod all and chilling out with Dane. I might make us sausage and mash… Love it!

ANYWAY! With a new month of course comes my monthly posts, including my favourites. April was a funny month, but I discovered a lot of new items this month gone and luckily stuff I needed… Not just buying for the sake of it. 😛

  • Imperial Leather Marshmallow Shower Cream.

I’ve used this in the past and I’m pretty sure it has featured on my monthly favourites before. It being featured on here again just shows what an amazing product it is! I actually forgot how good it was until I recently started using it again. It smells beautiful and leaves your skin not only smelling yummy but feeling lovely and soft too. For only a £1 you cannot go wrong!

  • Vaseline Lip Therapy with Cocoa Butter.

It’s shit to admit but my lips are STILL bad. Well they appear to be on the mend now and better than before but still bad… Urgh. I finally got some decent answers from two doctors recently and was given the right treatments. Alongside using the treatment creams I’ve also been slathering on this Vaseline in between applications to keep my lips nice and moist… Ew I hate that word but it’s the only word I can use right now and it be accurate. This tub is for around the house, as I bought an aloe vera one for out on the go and for work. I don’t like that one as much as the cocoa butter though to be honest. I find the smell to be fresh, but that doesn’t apply when on the lips. I feel like the cocoa butter scent is lovely both in the jar and when applied to the lips. You can never go wrong with cocoa butter to be fair! I love this better than the original Vaseline though to be honest! 😀

  • Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel.

I needed a new eye gel last month and wanted to make sure to get something that would cool my eyes whilst hydrating them throughout the day. I wouldn’t usually go for a low budget eye gel due to the whole, “It’s not going to do sod all…” but I thought for £1.50 it wouldn’t break the bank to give it a whirl! I hate eye creams and have always opted to buying gels if I can. This one is amazing and really does soothe and cool tired eyes either in the morning before work or after a long day in the evening. Either way I love this and I think I’ll end up buying another soon for mine and Dane’s holiday in September!

  • Barry M Molten Metal Nail Paint in shade Copper Mine.

When I was off work during April I decided to paint my nails as due to the job I do I’m not allowed to wear it whilst working. I have a couple of these Molten Metal polishes but this one is my favourite. I find the copper shade suits my yellow skin tone the best and it just looks gorgeous too. The formula is lovely and it lasts ages before chipping! Even whilst doing loads of work on the house last week it hardly chipped. This was without a top coat too! I’ll be reviewing these very soon as they deserve a review. I plan to get myself the new holographic shade that recently came out. These are on 2 for £7 at the moment so I’ll be getting that and another shade.

  • Radox Feel Heavenly Bath Soak with Coconut & Milk.

Finally we have a bubble bath on my monthly favourites. I still use my Lush products, don’t get me wrong but more often than not I find if I overuse them it actually causes more harm to my body than good. That and I try to make my money last at the moment. ANYWAY! This bath soak was bought on a whim that I wanted something nice and light to use on days off work and before bed. This is a gorgeous bubble bath where a little bit goes a long way, but I always add a generous amount to my bath to create LOADS of bubbles. I always find this leaves my skin lovely and soft after use. It’s amazing.

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – Sirens (UK version).

This is a show I recently started to re-watch. It was out YEARS ago… (looks on Wikipedia) Holy shit 2011 was when this show first aired. I feel old. Very old. ANYWAY! As the title may give away this show is about 3 paramedics and it shows what they get up to during their shifts. It also shows a couple of members of the Police and Fire Service too. This is fiction I’ll have you know and is actually a comedy. I love it so much though, it just makes me laugh. There are some serious notes in it however and with that it does remind me of Only Fools and Horses. One moment it can be side splitting funny and the next bringing a tear to your eye. If you’ve never watched it and you fancy giving it a go then I think you’re only options now are going to be watching it online for free, or as a shitty YouTube upload. I’m being naughty and watching it online for free… Hey! I’d buy it if I could!

Favourite Film – Your Name (Kimi no Na wa).

Last month me and Dane went to go and watch this after he found out it was showing in the Mockingbird cinema in Birmingham’s Custard Factory. He booked it that day and that evening we were off to watch it. Oh my God it wasn’t even what I was expecting it to be to be honest. I knew what the basic plot was for the film but it has a lot of twists and such throughout the film. I don’t want to talk too in depth as I worry it could spoil the film for anyone who hasn’t seen it. You can watch a trailer here if you like the sound of it. BUT to be honest if you haven’t heard about it by now, whether you’re an anime fan or not then where have you been hiding? It keeps being spoken about how it’s the best anime film for quite some time. 😛

Favourite Book – K-ON!

As regular readers of my blog will know I have been reading nothing but manga since the start of the year and whilst it is an expensive thing to keep on top of, it is so damn worth it! I recently purchased all of the K-ON manga to read and whilst I am only somewhat through the series, I am in love with it. It’s just great to see some of my new favourite anime characters come to life on the pages of the manga as well as through the anime series. I’ll be reviewing in the future!

Favourite Songs – George Michael “Freedom! 90” and “Careless Whisper”.

This is kind of random I suppose but a few nights ago I just started listening to songs from the 00’s… Which led to songs from the 90’s and for some reason that then led me to listen to some of George Michael’s best singles. Of course he died at the end of last year which was a real shame. He was a talented guy in every way! I have always had a place for “Freedom! 90” and I don’t know why… I especially love the music video as I think it’s so clever, alongside the song as a dig at the music industry. 😛 Thanks to Deadpool now whenever I hear “Careless Whisper” I just think of Ryan Reynolds singing it at the end of the film. HA! 😛 BUT instead of popping either of the songs mentioned above I thought I would attach Seether’s cover of “Careless Whisper”. It’s amazing in my eyes and they did a really good job!

Favourite game – TsumTsum.

This is a game I have owned for as long as I’ve had my iPhone 6 to be honest… I remember when I went on holiday with my dad in November 2015 playing it whenever we were near a WiFi connection! ANYWAY… This is a game I have been playing nonstop this month and it’s one I always forget that I love to play. It’s a game that you can actually pay to play in Japan as an actual arcade game. I would love to play it like that! I’ve attached a video above of Sharla playing it! It’s just a great, free and relaxing game to play. It’s one of those where you need to match up 3 plus of the same Disney character to get rid of them, get a high score, coins etc. With those coins you can buy new characters etc. If you love Disney and love the Tsum Tsum’s then you’ll love this!

So those were my favourites from April! I can’t believe how quickly the year is going by though to be perfectly honest. Next month me and Dane will have been in our house for a year and I don’t know if I like that or if it scares me a little. Time is going wayyyyy too fast and I don’t think I like that. It also means next month marks our four year anniversary which IS exciting and I don’t mind that. 😛 It does feel like we’ve been together longer mind.

What products were you loving throughout April? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time take care all and I hope you have a lovely bank holiday Monday. I know I will be. 😛

Leighton Denny I Am Goddess High Performance Nail Colour Collection – Review

Although these are from Leighton Denny’s autumn/winter 2015 collection I recently picked them up from the M&S sale, as they were super cheap! I managed to pick up three, even though I only really wanted one or two. I will already state that online none of these shades are left to buy, but you may be in luck in store, like I was with two of these shades. You can still pick these up as well on the official Leighton Denny website (link here) but they’re still at the full retail price of £11.00.

So, on with the review!

Thanks to my mom, I discovered Leighton Denny a couple of years ago, but I haven’t as of yet owned any of his polishes until now, and boy was it worth the wait!

These are some of the nicest nail polishes I own, due to the quality of the nail polish, it’s lasting time, and of course the price! But I’ll go into detail about all those in this review.

 photo Photo 17-03-2016 10 45 42 am_zpstchtvytd.jpg

L-R : Aphrodite’s Love, Queen Hera, Athena Love

I picked up three of six shades from the collection:

Aphrodite’s Love – An olive cream with a metallic duo-chrome finish.

Queen Hera – A metallic gold with chrome finish.

Athena Divine – A deep, midnight blue with metallic shimmer.

For £11.00 you’re paying for 12ml bottle, with a high performance nail colour. I found with all of these I only needed two coats max to get a really good pay off. All the shades are really pigmented, which I was pleased about.

Lasting time on these was amazing too! Aphrodite’s Love is currently on my toes, and has been the past week. It’s not chipped at all, not even during my pole fitness classes! Which is great to be honest. When I wore Queen Hera all weekend it lasted throughout, and didn’t chip once. Again, I was really pleased about it. I haven’t had the chance to wear Athena Divine yet, but I’m going to wear it next weekend and see how the lasting time is, but if it’s anything like the other two shads, it’ll last ages.

So here are some swatches of the polishes themselves!

Aphrodite’s Love:

One coat

Queen Hera:

Athena Divine:

 photo Athena Divine 2_zpsb7xbfr0x.jpg

One coat

 photo Athena Divine 3_zpspxs7imtx.jpg

Two coats

I have shown all the polishes with both one, and two coats, just so you can see the pigmentation!

My personal favourite has to be Athena Divine. Like the name, it is a divine colour and I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t wait to rock this when I next have my holiday from work (FYI in a months time!) as well as when it’s mine and Dane’s anniversary in June, which will soon be here!

It’s a shame these are limited edition nail polishes, as they are truly stunning!

Will you be trying to pick these up in the M&S sale? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

January Favourites 2015

2015 and we’re already into February! I wasn’t expecting my holiday in January to go by so quickly either.

The majority of my favourites in January were products I used frequently whilst on holiday, or discovered whilst I was there.

I’ve decided to do something a little different this year, instead of talking about ten favourites each month, I’ll be talking about five instead. I just feel like it means I REALLY liked the items I talked about and therefore would have needed to think about hem more carefully.

So, here are my favourites!

Image taken from thebodyshop.co.uk

  • Diesel Loverdose EDP.

I had run out of this years ago and was gutted as it’s by far one of my favourite perfumes to wear. It’s a strong scent that lasts ages, and has a unique smell. So when my Dad offered to buy it me whilst on holiday as one of my birthday presents. He got me a massive 75ml bottle, so that’ll last me way longer than my 30ml bottle did. I wore this most of my holiday because of what a lovely summer scent it has, I only wore it in the evenings though but it sure did smell good and last ages. I’m so pleased to have this back in time for spring and summer.

  • The Body Shop Hand Cream in Coconut.

I just want to mention how I cannot find my hand cream anywhere in the house and this is why I’ve had to insert a picture here. I LOVE The Body Shop’s hand creams and alongside the Hemp hand cream this is one of my favourites. It has a gel like texture and isn’t as heavy as the Hemp one. Whilst I was on holiday my hands were the best they’ve been in a long time. I was using this hand cream throughout the holiday and it felt lovely on my skin. It’s one you can use in the warmer weather due to it not being heavy. It also had the lovely coconut smell, which is such a typical holiday scent! I’ve also tried the Strawberry hand cream but I didn’t like it as much as I like this one! I’ll definitely be repurchasing in the future.

  • Carmex Lip Balm in Strawberry.

I used this throughout my holiday and it kept my lips lovely and soft, as well as protected due to it containing SPF 15! I’d never liked this lip balm all that much before, but I really did enjoy using it whilst I was away. The precision on this is great and meant it was easy and quick to apply when on the go. I used this underneath my lip products too and it did a mighty good job of creating a moisturisng layer. I used up nearly all of the tube as well, I was really surprised! I’ll definitely be trying the Cherry flavour next!

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Coca-Cola Red.

As I mentioned in my Holiday Haul my Mom picked me up a set of the Coca-Cola OPI polishes, and inside of course there was the classic Cocoa-Cola Red. I wore this on my toes for the entire two weeks of my holiday and it lasted so well! I didn’t wear a base coat (naughty!) and I didn’t wear a top coat (double naughty!) and it still lasted the whole time. It’s said to be the exact same shade as the Coca-Cola cans, which I think is pretty cool! This is a cream finish is gorgeous! I don’t think I’ll ever wear this on my nails as I don’t suit red really, but on my toes it made me feel lovely.

  • Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey Douche

This was a balm stain I was given by my Mom as she didn’t like the shade that much and I didn’t think I would either, but it’s turned out that I love it! It’s a light pink shade and is a really nice nude shade at that. I’m not a fan of nude shades but this worked lovely as I built up my tan whilst I was on holiday and it also lasted ages on my lips. I never did try the Revlon lip crayons until I received this one, and it’s probably one of the best ones I’ve ever tried. I can see me picking up more in the future as they’re so great to quickly apply when on the move.

So those were my favourites for January! What did you use last month and enjoy? Let me know in the comments.

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

Christmas Penguin Nail art Tutorial – Guest Post!

Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
Hi everyone! I’m Mali and I blog over at Maliberry Makeup.  Nat kindly invited me to write a few guest posts for her over the Christmas/Winter period and I’m kicking that off with a quick nail art tutorial!  I adore painting my nails and coming up with fun designs, and today I’ll be talking you through the steps to get fun little penguins on your nails.  I actually got the idea from these from some falsies I saw in Primark, although I tweaked the design slightly and added my own touches.  These are perfect for when you want festive nails!
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
You’ll need:
Black nail polish
White nail polish (the more coverage the better)
Gold nail polish (yellow/orange would also work)
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
I also used a plastic surface to blob nail polish onto – you can see some polish from a previous gradient manicure on mine!  You’ll also need a dotting tool which you can get quite cheaply on eBay or in places that sell nail supplies.  You don’t strictly need a dotting tool: you can use a toothpick, pinhead stuck in a pencil eraser or even a pencil lead to make dots!
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
Firstly, paint your nails black 🙂  Use a quick dry topcoat so you can move on to the next step sooner.  I actually laid down my black base the night before
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
Next, take your white polish and paint the belly of the penguin. Start the curve of the polish lower down than you normally would, making sure to leave a ring of black around.  I went a little too high with the white on my pinky finger but it’s okay!  Don’t worry if this isn’t perfect – it will give your penguins character
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
Next, blob out your white polish onto the plastic surface.  Use the dotting tool to create little white dots on the line of black above the white belly.  I always do some practice dots before attempting them on my nail!  Again, perfection really isn’t necessary here and your penguins will have their own personality if their eyes are a little wonky 😛
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
While you wait for the white dots to dry, go ahead and blob out some gold polish on the plastic surface.  Use the dotting tool to add feet at the base of the white belly.  Add a beak below the eyes – simply drag the dotting tool slightly to create a longer shape
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
The white dots should be dry enough to add pupils now!  As you might have guessed, you create these in exactly the same way: blob out black polish and grab your dotting tool!  My dotting tool is double ended and I used the smaller end to create these delicate black dots but using less pressure also gives a smaller dot if you don’t have different sized tools.  I tried to make the penguins’ pupils all look in different directions!
Now, you could absolutely stop here and seal your penguins in with topcoat.  However, I wanted to take it a step further.
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
You’ll need nail art lacquers in your choice of colours – I went for these red and green Color Club Nail Art Lacquers which come with an inbuilt striping brush.  You can also use normal polish and a separate striping brush!
Christmas Penguin Nail Art Tutorial
I added a little scarf to the penguin on my ring finger by painting a base of green and then adding red stripes.  Very Christmassy!
Once your nails are completely dry, add a coat of topcoat for shine and to protect your hard work.  A matte topcoat would add a fun dimension too.  This entire manicure probably took me about 10 minutes and is very simple.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial 🙂 Thanks for having me Nat – be sure to let me know if any of you do try this for yourselves!

November Wish List

It’s November… Really? This is probably the quickest year I have so far seen and it’s really quite scary. It only felt like yesterday when my boyfriend and I were starting to get ready to celebrate our first Christmas together and now Christmas is next month. Scary or what?

I doubt very much I will be buying much this month as I really do need to save my money for Christmas and also for things I ACTUALLY need. If I buy anything for myself it’ll be more so as a “Ooo I have spare cash, TREAT TIME.” which we all do, don’t try and deny it ladies (and gents!).

In all fairness Christmas IS just around the corner and if I end up buying things it won’t give my boyfriend and family any ideas on what to buy me.

So here is a wish list of things I MIGHT (but probably won’t) buy.

  • Crowded Teeth Fox Coin Purse.

My holiday is due soon and I really want to make sure I get everything ready for it as soon as I can, this is including some clothing as well as other bits and bobs. I have the wallet to match this purse and I’d really like this purse to take with me on my holiday. I don’t particularly want to take my big wallet with my on holiday as it’s full of store cards I can’t really use abroad. However with a nice little coin purse I can use it for my euro coins and notes, as well as a few cards. This is currently in the sale and if it’s still available after Christmas I’ll definitely pick it up! I nearly bought the shoulder/tote bag to match this design but I left it… I would have bought it but I didn’t like the design, sadly.

  • Iron Fist Rotten Smile Oversized Raglan T-Shirt.

I’m a huge fan of Iron Fist and have been ever since they brought the brand over to the UK about 10 years ago. Their clothing is perfect for someone alternative like me and are great quality for great prices. They currently have a huge sale on their website, as well as some new pieces, including this one. I’ve been after some new oversized t-shirts for a while now, especially for university as I like to be comfortable and this just looks so snug! I really do like the print on the front too, as it does really look rotten with the cartoons smile! It’s just a nice spin on the smiley face. I would of course take this on holiday to wear in the evenings with shirts or over a bikini.

  • The Body Shop Glazed Apple Hand Cream.

I LOVE hand creams at this time of year and due to my eczema they’re also a life saver. I have 3 L’Occitane hand creams to keep me going throughout winter, but I like to have some lighter formula hand creams to carry around with me in my bag. I love The Body Shop’s hand creams for this and my current favourites are their latest Coconut and Strawberry ones. For Christmas they have brought out a new collection, Glazed Apple and from what I have heard, it smells delicious! I already want the majority of the collection but I really have my eyes set on the hand cream. To have my hands smelling like apple Hubba Bubba is a dream come true and the sooner I get my hands on this, the softer and better smelling they’ll be!

  • Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.

I’m a massive nerd, always have been and like most nerds, I love Pokemon and have done ever since Pokemon Red and Blue came out. I never bought the original Ruby and Sapphire games on the Game Boy Advance and I’m quite sad that I missed that era, but I was just too in love with the originals to buy any of the Advance games. However now The Pokemon Company have re-released the games out on the 3DS, which I own and love! So I will be getting my hands on this game possibly the day it comes out in November… But I’m not 100% sure I will or not, as Christmas is coming and if someone wishes to buy me that game, then so be it. BUT I can’t wait to play it! I played a demo a few weekends ago and it was really fun to play.

  • Oasis Strawberry Playsuit.

I have been eying up this playsuit for quite a while now and I remember being out with my friend Poppy when I saw it. “Get it!” she told me, but I told her I would wait for it to be in the sale, as at nearly £50 that was a lot of money for me. Now it’s less than £20 in the sale AND in my size! So I’ve actually already ordered this, but alas it can still be on my wish list. This is a gorgeous playsuit and very lively with the red strawberries all over it. I love playsuits and have been looking for some to replace the standard skirt/shorts and t-shirt. ALSO because I want to wear them on holiday as it’s just so easy to throw a playsuit on for the daytime and evening. I can’t wait to wear this out one weekend too with a cardigan, a massive coat, thick tights and boots.

  • Iron Fist Ship Wrecker Bikini Set.

Another piece I want for my holiday! I have two swimming costumes ready for my holiday, but as of yet not a bikini set, and I know I’ll need one for when I want to tan and have lazy days lying in the sun. I wanted to go for a nice bikini that resembles me and I really do think this one does that perfectly! As well as that it’s Iron Fist (who I’ve already stated I love) and it’s in the sale, so I can’t really go wrong with this one. The bikini top would look amazing under a sheer t-shirt, or even teamed up with a pair of denim shorts.

  • The Lacquer Lab Limited Edition (For Halloween) Polish in Teen Witch.

This nail polish is beautiful, and stunning, and all words that mean good! It’s very Halloweeny and whilst a lot of people would buy this, wear it on Halloween and never again, I would wear it all the time! I’ve just never seen anything like this before, and I doubt anything like this will be brought out anytime soon. I can see me buying this for myself as a treat as this month gone hasn’t exactly been stressful but the past couple of weeks I’ve felt a tad run down and crappy. Brit Nails has done a review for this polish over on her blog, which you can check out here.

So, that’s my wish list for this month! I can’t see me buying much off of it due to Christmas coming up, but I really do want the nail polish as it’s just so gorgeous… Watch this space!

What are you lusting after this month? Make sure to  let me know in the comments!

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

OPI Peanuts Collection (For Halloween) – Review

Do you remember back in August when I wrote a post about this collection, and how excited I was for it? Well as you can see I FINALLY have my hands on the collection and since getting it I have loved it so much!

My Mom knew how much I wanted this set and on a shopping trip out she spotted it and picked it up for me, which I am quite pleased about as I didn’t even see it in the shop she bought it from! My Mom is so lovely when it comes to little things and since university started she has seen how stressed and tired I am lately, so her buying me this was just so sweet of her. What are Mom’s for though?

She didn’t tell me how much she paid for it but I’ve seen this for sale online for nearly £12.00, which isn’t cheap but personally I feel it’s worth it, especially as I was planning to buy this next week after being paid but alas, I don’t have to now.

I knew I had my eye on two of the shades from this collection, those being the glitter polishes which are called Where’s My Blanket??? and To Be or Not To Beagle. When I was swatching these and taking pictures I was super excited about applying them to my nails as they’re such fun shades for Halloween, as well as autumn.

Also I want to just say how cute is this little picture on the box? As well as the cartoon on the left hand side of the front? I love the packaging for this and I won’t be throwing it away anytime soon!

As you can see you get your four nail polishes, all in 3.75ml – 1/8 Fl. Oz. which is the standard size for the 4 pack of nail polishes. BUT as well as your polishes you also get some nail art decals which are super cute and I WON’T be using them anytime soon. They’re too cute to use.

The names of the four shades (from L-R) are:

Good Grief! – The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favourite t-shirt.

Where’s My Blanket??? – Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.

WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? – This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.

And finally To Be or Not To Beagle – Snoopy’s happy-dance of colours in a joyful glitter.

I’ll go into further detail about each polish after each swatch!

Good Grief! Is a sunny yellow nail polish with a cream finish and really is bright! It reminds me of the sort of shade I would wear as a young teenager during the summer with glitter polish on top! This will work wonderfully with Where’s My Blanket??? applied on top for an autumn feel. I found when applying this it was a tad on the streaky side but I think that’s just a personal issue. I’ve painted my nails with two coats on these images. It’s a very pigmented colour and looks lovely! I won’t lie though, out of the four shades this is my least favourite and isn’t really a shade I would opt to wear on a day-to-day basis. I painted this on my toes when I first got the set and it looked like I had jaundice… Not a good look!

Where’s My Blanket??? Is a wonderful glitter polish with various different sizes of black glitter throughout, as well as bigger pieces of cream yellow and orange glitter too. This is a perfect glitter polish for autumn due to the yellow and orange glitter throughout and would look perfect over a light or dark cream brown shade and due to that I can see me wearing this a lot this autumn season. As well as that this will also work perfectly over the top of Good Grief and WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? which I can see me doing in the future. This is a really easy glitter polish to apply and it dried really quickly too! On my nails I painted two coats, although if I wanted more glitter pay off I could have painted another coat. I currently have this on my toes and it looks really pretty. This is definitely my second favourite in the set!

WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? This is the perfect black nail polish! It’s a gorgeous cream black with gel like shine and is probably one of the best black nail polishes I’ve ever had and trust me, I’ve had a lot! I grew up wearing nothing but nail polish from the age of 14 until about 21 and I really do miss wearing black nail polish. It’s such a bold shade that you can team anything with and this is no exception. I painted two coats of this on my nails and that was more than enough as this is such a strong and pigmented black. This will work wonders with both Where’s My Blanket??? and To Be or Not To Beagle painted over the top which I wanted to wear this week, but due to work it would be a bit much so sadly I just had to stick with one of the glitters. I can see me wearing this a lot over winter more than autumn as with glitter polishes over the top it will be wonderful! This is also my second favourite polish as it’s just such a wonderful black! Well done to OPI for this one.

To Be or Not To Beagle this is such a fun nail polish and I don’t think I have ever seen a glitter polish like it to date. It contains small and large pieces of black glitter, as well as strips of black glitter BUT it also contains large pieces of rainbow glitter which just makes me happy! This glitter is just like a punch in the face for how different it is from most glitter polishes out there and I already know I want a standard sized bottle of this. This is two coats on my nails and I could have carried on to make sure I had loads of glitter packed onto each nail but two seemed like a good number. This will work perfectly over the top of various coloured polishes but I think it would work nicely on top of both Good Grief! and WHO ARE YOU CALLING BOSSY?!? Most of all I really want to try this over a white cream or a nude nail polish as I think it would look so pretty, especially for winter. My favourite out of the collection by far and I have it on my nails right now. Oh by the way, I couldn’t pick two pictures for this polish as I just wanted to show off how many different colours are in the glitter!

My overall opinion of this collection? A lovely collection for Halloween, even though an orange polish would have worked better than a yellow… In my opinion anyway!

The glitter polishes work perfectly, especially Where’s My Blanket due to the orange and yellow glitter and it will definitely be my nail polish for autumn now.

I personally feel they could have done more with this collection but alas they have so many collections coming out at the moment that they probably didn’t want to go overboard, which is fine.

I was super excited for this collection and has it been worth the wait? HELL YEAH! I love the collection so much and for the rest of autumn I’m probably set now for when I fancy wearing something nice.

My favourite in the set is definitely To Be or Not To Beagle and my least favourite was Good Grief!

Was it worth the money my Mom paid? I would say so yes! If you know someone who loves Halloween and they also have a birthday in October or just after Halloween then this will be the perfect present for them I think Or even someone who loves Peanuts like I do. This is something special to add to my collection and it’ll be loved very much.

So, what do you think of the Peanuts Collection? Will you be buying it?

Hey maybe you already own it, if so which is your favourite shade?

Leave me your answers and any questions you have in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re all well

September Wish List

Boy time is flying for 2014! Soon enough it’ll be 2015, woohoo! So with another month, I bring to you another wish list. This one has certain themes to it, some holiday themed, some just nail themed. Either way I need to save money, only a few little treats now! There are some other bits and pieces I want to get my hands on but when I will is another story.

September Wish List

  •  Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Melange (from the Once collection).

This nail polish is stunning and one that I know already that I need in my collection! It’s described as a “golden teal, matte finish” and something beautiful that I don’t have in mu collection. It’ll be gorgeous to wear for autumn and winter and with the matte finish it’ll look even better in my opinion! I’ve only owned one Illamasqua nail polish, Raindrops (review here) which is a gorgeous shade. Illamasqua’s formula for their polishes are great and I’m really surprised I don’t have more of their polishes. This isn’t cheap at £14.50 but I’m sure it would be worth every penny and I really can see this becoming a permanent shade to their collection.

  • Superdrug Croyde Cable Cardigan.

I spotted this cardigan a couple of weekends ago when I went to visit my friend Gabriella and we both awed at how beautiful it was. Soft, warm and a gorgeous burgundy colour we both fell in love… Luckily I restrained myself from buying it, or asking my boyfriend to lend me the money for it! I know I will buy this eventually as I just can’t help but need it, my friend Poppy even wants it now after I shared it on Instagram! This isn’t cheap and I’ve found it on websites for well over £50! I’m sure it wasn’t this much in the shop that my friend and I found it in. Either way, I’m going to be good and save my money up for a while… To buy this of course! No I joke! But with autumn upon us in less than 20 days, I’ll probably need this for those chilly evenings that will soon be upon us.

  • Matalan Spot Print Tankini Style Swimsuit.

As I’m due to go on holiday at the start of January I’m after some new swimwear, especially a costume as whilst I may look okay with clothes on, I don’t look so pretty without them and quite frankly I hate my stomach! For swimming and such I want to invest in a nice swimsuit to paddle around the pool in, and what better way to go than with a swimsuit that has tummy control! Melon Lady recently shared this in a haul on her YouTube channel and I fell in love with it, it looks vintage and gorgeous and I can rock this with a pair of shorts whilst walking around the shops too if I really want to. At £15 this is a bargain and I need to get my arse to a Matalan soooon if I’m in any hope of picking this up.

  • Loungefly Disney Ariel Turquoise Glitter Embossed Bag.

This bag is beautiful and since I set my eyes on it, I want it. However this isn’t available in the UK… Yet! I have wanted one of these bags for a while, but with the Hello Kitty print on it, however I never found one I actually really wanted so I left it. However this bag is beautiful in many ways. Ariel is a mermaid and thus already amazing and the fact this is glitter AND turquoise makes it double amazing! I would love this bag in time for my holiday, as from seeing them in the flesh, these bags are HUGE and you could probably fit everything in there. I really do hope this comes over to our English soil, as soon as it does I’ll be buying it!

  • OPI How Is Your Dane? Nail Lacquer (from Nordic collection).

I won’t lie, I only really want this nail polish because of the name… Well that’s the main reason anyway! Otherwise the shade of this nail polish is beautiful and one I’ve been after since the summer, ready for autumn and winter. My boyfriends name is Dane (as regular readers and people who know me will know) so when I saw the name of this it made me giggle like a little kid but when I saw the shade, it’s like OPI knew I was after a chocolate-brown. OPI’s description for this shade is “Pass up this cinnamon coffee? You’re barking up the wrong tree!” which is really nice in a weird way. This isn’t cheap, like most OPI polishes but I want some staple shades for autumn and winter this year and I think this could be one of them, it’d look gorgeous with some glitter over the top!

  • Loungefly Hello Kitty Mustache Coin Purse.

I have wanted a coin purse for a while, but one that matched my wallet… My old wallet that is. However now I have my new one, there is a chance for me to get the coin purse to match my current wallet. However I fancy a change and when I saw this coin purse online in Beadesaurus’s sale I thought it looked gorgeous and reminded me of a Hello Kitty wallet I wanted ages ago! As I’ve already mentioned my holiday is coming up in the New Year and I don’t really want to take my huge wallet with  me abroad, so I’m thinking of picking up something like this instead. Something I can just keep my money, cards, receipts, etc inside with no worries.

  • LiP SMACKER Red Velvet Lip Balm.

I recently found out that Lip Smackers cake flavoured lip balms will finally be coming out in the UK and I’m quite excited. You can’t go wrong with a flavoured lip balm and for anyone who doesn’t know me, I LOVE red velvet and quite frankly anything and everything that tastes and smells just like it. I don’t really need another lip balm, but what would another one hurt to keep in my hand bag or on the side of my bed, huh? There are loads of flavours from this Cupcakery collection coming out, such as Strawberry Sprinkle, Birthday Cake, Berry Buttercream, Vanilla Coconut, Salted Caramel, as well as Red Velvet. I’m excited for this collection and I’m sure I will mention more about it in the future.

  • OPI Peanuts Collection Mini Pack.

I’ve made a post about the Peanuts collection that OPI will be bringing out for Halloween, you can read that post here. I am SO excited for this collection to come out! As soon as it becomes available to buy, I’ll for sure be picking it up.

  • Adventure Time Jake Phone Case.

I spotted this on eBay when I was having a look through all the Adventure Time bits and pieces listed on there. I love this phone case, it has a quote from Jake on it which says, “Dude, suckin’ at something is the first step to being sorta good at something” and I LOVE it! I’ve been feeling pretty down the past year and it hasn’t really gotten any better, but this quote does make me feel like it’s not just me who is out there struggling to get things right first time around. I’d love to have this case to look at everyday, every time I feel crappy and hopeless. It’s less than £8.00, which isn’t bad really when you think about it. My boyfriend wants the same case too, so if we were both to pick them up we would match, which is always nice.

So that is my wish list for September! I really wish I could buy everything off of the list right now, but money. xD

What’s on your wish list this month? Let me know in the comments!

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