FALL NAILS 2013 : BLACK IS BACK


As autumn is soon approaching, i thought it would only be appropriate to share with you the nail trends for fall this year.  Seen recently on many runways including Nicole Miller, Karen Walker and Fendi, black is back as it creates a chic and classy look, that will go with any outfit.

I tried to recreate this nail look that was seen on Hughes models at their latest fashion shows, showcasing their fall/winter 2013 collection.


This nail look is cute and classy and slightly more interesting than paining the whole nail.  Being a very easy tutorial it is right up my alley as i struggle at painting nails and am very impatient, haha!  I first saw how to do the half-moon nails on pinterest a few months ago, which you can find here, and it is a fool-proof method which is why it makes these nails so easy to complete.





Simply just paint a nude polish over all the nails, cover up the base of the nail with half of a paper-hole reinforcement once the nude polish has completely dried, then paint over the remaining nail with the black polish and apply top coat afterwards.

I love this look and will be wearing it a lot during the autumn!  It will also look great if you used different colours as the base; white, maroon or even a bright colour for a pop!

REVIEW : MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS









After a couple of weeks of continuously searching Boots and Superdrug, I have finally managed to get hold of some Baby Lips.  In excitement, I immediately took advantage of the 3 for 2 on all maybelline products, and picked up Cherry Me, Pink Punch and Hydrate.

Also consequently I have been getting dry lips (typical in summer, I know?!) so what more perfect time to test and review Baby Lips.  After the hype of these products I did have high expectation and thankfully they definitely live up to them!  Firstly, they smell delicious; Hydrate smells of sherbet lemons (my favourite boiled sweets!), Pink punch smells of strawberries and sweets and Cherry Me smells of glacĂ© cherries (which I personally don't like but when on your lips you can't smell it.)  Secondly, they are so silky and smooth and truly moisturise your lips.  Cherry Me and Pink Punch do have a slight tint in the product; deep pink and a baby pink.  These are only tints and not vibrant colours but are still slightly visible once on the lips.

Overall I highly recommend them and they moisturise and glide on your lips so silkily.  Also not to mention  the total adorable packaging!  They retail at £2.99 each so grab 'em whilst on offer to get one for free!

What do you think?

After lusting over all the new products that have been bought out recently, I put together a beauty wishlist of all the beauty products that I have been craving.  I've been wanting to try a couple of these products for a while so I thought I'd include these as well.  As school is soon on the horizon, I feel that most of these product will also be perfect for school; nude glossy lips, perfect skin, cute, quick wavy hair and pastel nails!

I also apoligise for the lack of posts recently but I'll be posting more before school starts again.  Any requests?

PURE










Pure is a fashion trade exhibition which is for fashion industry buyers to buy items from companies, for the upcoming season.  To broadcast the new season trends, Pure is held twice a year, in February and August at London Olympia.

Above are some pictures I took of the fashion shows that were held to present the trends, using clothes from the companies at the exhibition.  Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, I had to use my phone as our camera has broke.

After, we decided to jump on a couple tubes (which was my first ever time going on tubes) to Harrod's and have a quick browse around the store.

fishes in the pet section, wouldn't the colour of this fish make a gorgeous nail polish colour!

the biggest and most delicious-looking meringues i have ever seen, yummm

 quick snap of a ridiculously overcrowded tube that we got on

a well deserved vanilla milkshake after sprinting to our train as we got on the wrong one, then sprinting back as my mum left her phone on the wrong train then realising our 'correct' train left, ugh, it was tiring and way too hot

ELLE // SEPTEMBER 2013









Whilst flicking through instagram yesterday, I saw that Claire from Beauty & le Chic posted a photo of Elle magazine, September edition with a great freebie that I have been interested in for a while.  So, when mum offered to buy me a magazine earlier today, I jumped to the chance and picked up the last one in the store!

This issue features upcoming autumn/winter trends, new beauty products and the gorgeous Katy Perry talking about her life with past and present lovers.  Also, it comes with a 50ml bottle of the Bumble & Bumble thickening hairspray, that's usually worth £7.50 and a 60 page Elle Accessories magazine, with everything you need to know about the in-season shoes and jewellery.

What are your favourite magazines?
