I depotted my Mac eyeshadows!

The other day i decided the time had to come to depot! I find it so much easier just opening up a pallet to find a colour rather than route around my drawers.

So i ordered some magnets which came today and with a little help from Peachykeencheeks video i managed to depot and update my pallet :)
All ready to go...


Ta da, i did it!! :)

A little mention about my magnets. I got them from ebay, from a seller called *makeup_nation* They cost me $4.00 for 15 magnets including postage, which worked out at £2.51 (to be exact, ha). The shipping was so quick to say they came from America. Ordered them on the 23rd in the Afternoon and they arrived today!

O.P.I "Suzi skis in the pyrenees"

In the bottle it looks a very very dark grey but on the nails its got a blue tinge to it aswell. I love black nails but this is a nice change :)

And on another note look what i bought on Friday!

I know i know, im like a year too late but i finally gave into the hype and read the book and i loved it! So this was a must buy and i cant wait to watch it.

Now onto New Moon :)

My few Maybelline bits

As everyone is very aware there was a Maybelline event a few weeks ago. I was gutted i couldnt get the time off work to go as the few bits of Maybelline makeup i have i love! The colossal mascara and mineral blush in topaz rose are a couple of them. But the lovely Natalie arranged for a few Maybelline goodies to be sent to me, thankyou :)

I got the new vibrating mascara, and 2 lipsticks!
First the mascara. I was really excited that id been sent this, as soon as i saw the advert on tele for it i couldnt wait to try it. The vibrating of it doesnt bother me but you have to keep the button pressed in which was abit of a pain for how i hold my mascara. It definitely added some length to my lashes but i still love my colossal that little bit more.
Here's some before and after pictures

The lipsticks

Firstly brown attitude. When i first saw this i instantly thought how much is wasnt me. But i thought id try it to put some pictures on here and the more i wore it the more it grew on me!

And the second lipstick is precious beige. I love this colour!

Twilight for the lips :)

Whenever i buy something from Boots i always end up with some sort of voucher or money off receipt. A week ago i got one of the £5 off No.7 or Ruby and Millie products vouchers! So yesterday i took a little trip to Boots. I ended up buying one of the Rubie and Millie lipglosses in "twilight" after some reccomendations from LondonMUgirl on twitter (thankyou!)

Its a lovely bubblegum pink colour and the lipgloss has some good staying power!
Here's a few pictures of me sporting it last night. (Last night was just a take away and wine night round at the bf's brothers)

It hasnt come out as pinky as it looks on my camera, its my new camera so not sure if iv done something wrong uploading the photo's?!?

The lipglosses are £11.50 each but at the minute Boots has a 3 for 2 on selected products and these are in it!

Sally Hansen to the rescue :)

Over the past few months i have really put my toes through it! Bright nail varnishes kept on for far longer than im sure is advised, the nail varnish being taken off only to be replaced straight away with another shocking colour.

Well i think its safe to say the poor excuse of a summer we had is over so last Friday i took my nail varnish off my toes with the intensions of leaving them be for a while. Eurgh!! They was in a sorry state :( Deep ridges, white patches and quite flaky (bleurgh, im making myself feeling queasy so i'll stop now!)

But Sally Hansen was on hand to help :)

A while back i won some nail prizes off a give away the lovely dressjunkie had. In my prizes was this baby

Sally Hansen nail quencher cuticle cream
What Sally says: smoothes cuticles, strengthens & conditions nails, with mineral rich hydration, plant extracts, vitamins and essential oils. Cuticles are nourished and conditioned, encouraging stronger, healthy nails.

That night i popped abit on each nail and rubbed it in. It smells lovely, like creamy citrus (what an explanation!!) Anyway, the next morning they already looked loads better!! So iv been applying it everyday (if i remember) and they are just getting better and better. The ridges are almost gone and they look so much healthier!
A big thumbs up to Sally Hansen! (And thankyou Arlene)

Supermarket shopping!

Tonight i took a trip to Asda (i have a very exciting life i know!!). I needed some more shampoo and bits and bobs and the nearest Asda to me has all the clothes at the front of the store so you have to walk past (they do this on purpose!!!). Whilst wandering past i spotted this long top

I thought "ooh thats quite nice" and decided to try it on. I loved it! Its a long vest with a slight tulip shape and the long arm holes (if you know what i mean??) with a black vest attached underneath. My photo's are always quite rubbish so here's a few close ups to try and show it you better

It was £14 so not an amazing bargain but i like it :)

Ooh and Girl With The Golden Touch is having a great give away for getting 200 followers (congrats girl!). Go check it out here!!!
