Dream Home files

Ever since I watched Beauty & the Beast all I have ever wanted in a home was a room for a library with a sliding ladder of course. Our little teeny cottage doesn't leave much room for a library so I don't have one yet, but it's my dream room files.

What's one thing in your dream home file?

Like My New Look?

Hello Beautiful People!

How do you like my new style?

Did I get you? Did I?

I was trying out new looks (and wigs!) earlier today when I came up with this and decided to keep it on for dinner. Needless to say, I nearly scared my mum half to death!

Question Time

Hello Beautiful People!

As mentioned before, I've been stuck in a bit of a blogging rut of late because I haven't had the time to sit down and put any sort of energy into this blog. I asked for suggestions and one suggestion was to have more 'personal' posts so....

I've seen a lot of people do these sorts of posts so I won't get too in depth about it, basically this is a post to place any questions you would like to ask me and I will start to compile a FAQ page full of answers. I also feel like this will make my blog more interactive because it will give you a chance to get to know me and vice-versa.

In the mean time, I think I might do a few tags...

Wish List/My Pick of the High Street #1

Hello Beautiful People!

As always, it feels like an age and as always, it has been! I've been so busy lately I even missed my blogs first birthday! I shall have to postpone my birthday giveaway until March now so stay tuned!

Anyway, with payday looming I've spent the past few weeks perusing websites and compiling a mental list of things I'm lusting after. It's been the only way to get my shopping fix as of late!

Here are some of the things I hope will be making their way home with me soon (fingers crossed!):


The picture does not do this gorgeous dress justice. I saw it in person and fell in love.


I saw this in a gorgeous salmon-pink and grey shade in store but sadly cannot find it online. I do also love it in classic black though. 
PS - if anyone can offer underwear advice for this dress it'd be appreciated! The mesh panelling and low back have me stumped bra-wise!


Obsessed with hats at the moment. I'd pair this with oversized sunnies and probably take the butterfly off.

Loving the 70s inspired clothing at the moment. I'd wear this with a simple vest and some chunky heels or platforms.




Paired with soft denim flares, chunky heels and Farrah Fawcett-esque hair. 
I also love it in this colour and classic cream.


I also love this in black

I think I'll leave it there. I could go on and on but I'll show some restraint! ;) 
What's on your new season wishlist and what are your favourite picks of the moment?
Also, if you have any requests for the sort of posts you would like to see, please leave it in the comments :)

In and Out: Number Four

Hello Beautiful People!

Yes I know, it's been an age again! I've been so busy with work though that I hope you'll forgive me. Once my schedule settles down, normal service will hopefully resume. In the meantime I will wistfully read your posts about shopping sprees and long for my own days off!

In the mean time, here is a quick In and Out post :)


Illamasqua Corrupt Lipstick - It's love. It's that simple. 

Pond's Hydro Nourishing Cream - My skin is ridiculously dry at the moment due to the cold weather and having the central heating on at work but this cream actually works wonders. I couldn't be without it.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - Always a favourite. This has actually been living in my handbag recently, again due to the cold weather.

MaltEaster Bunnies - I'm a massive chocolate fan and Easter chocolate seems to taste a million times better, especially these adorable Malteaser Bunnies. I would eat them all day if I could.

Mini Eggs - See above!

Enjoying what you do - I'm currently loving my job and continuing my makeup work. I have something very exciting in the pipeline that I will share with you all shortly.

Glee - I am SUCH a Gleek.


Designing business cards - The downside of following my dream!

 Dry skin and hair - As I mentioned above, the weather is playing havoc with my skin and hair. Bad times.

Not shopping - I miss my regular trips to the shops, even if it was only window shopping. I feel so behind!

There concludes my In and Out post! As you can see, everything is pretty positive at the moment.

If you have any requests for posts (seeing as I have hit a bit of a block) feel free to leave them in the comments below or send me an email at

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!


All Work....

But SO worth it.

Happy Sunday!

Illamasqua Corrupt - It's Love.

Hello Beautiful People!

Long time no see again! I have so much to tell you guys but I'll save that for the weekend seeing as I'm no longer able to attend IMATS *sad face*

Anyway I have to tell you the main part of my news now because I can't hold it in any longer! I recently finished training to become a make-up artist! I'm not going to sit here and say I am now a professional artist because I'm not, I still need to continue training and as I'm not currently working as an artist it'd be wrong of me to claim I was!

Over the past few days I've been picking things for my kit and myself and one thing I couldn't resist after using on my course was Corrupt lipstick by Illamasqua!

It may actually be the perfect lipstick. It's also now on a waiting list online because it's so sought after so yes... I'm feeling slightly smug...

Insert cheesy webcam shot, just what this post needs!

Get your name on the waiting list girls, this is a MUST. HAVE!
