One Size Fits All-really?

I know it's all over blogger but I literally CANNOT wait to get my hands on this issue of V magazine! Yes,I guess we all agee she's gorgeous butttttt......she's not really plus sized is she? Of course by fashion industry standards she's straight up ginormous (Personally I'd rather have womanly curves than look like a pre-pubesent boy thankyouverymuch) but it's not exactly Beth Ditto x Love magazine is it? Hmm.

Just came back from Xmas shopping on Oxford St :| not fun.

This is what outside my house looked like... bearing in mind it was 4 in the afternoon....

What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? Someone please reply and say they live in like,Miami or something,because I'll be paying you a visit to get away from this coolllldd!

all i want for christmas

It's nearly that time of year again!
Christmas is a time of sharing and caring, togetherness and bonding with your dearly loved ones in rememberance of little baby Jesus... it's also a time when you can demand all the goodies you wanted over the year that you coldn't be bothered to save up for... and if you beg hard enough you will find a few of them under the tree come Christmas morning. :)

Here's my hit list:


1. beach waves like zoe kravitz- I always try and they never turn out right :(
2. A shiny new laptop. A "friend" broke mine. >:(
3. granny shoes.
4. a sewing machine. I have 3 sewing machines but somehow think a new one will help me sew better (at all?)
5. Chloe Sevingy x Opening Ceremony leopard print cardigan- It's not going to happen but I've wanted one since..EVER. And the buckle wedges..... *sigh*
6. MAC,NARS,OPI blah blah blah
7. red tights a la Blair Waldorf.
8. Books! From Amazon. That SOME HOW always get delivered to the house next door. And when I ask them they say they've never seen them.... *suspicious face* :|

That's all I can think of for now... I'll post a FOTN as soon as I dig out my camera!
What are you hoping to get for christmas?

Haul: O.P.I. edition && blog sale

wow it's been a while since I've done a haul post.I went on a little bit of a nail polish spree last week and my goodies came in the post today!
I got 8 polishes in total for a very reasonble 40 quid! I'm really into vampy reds and purples on my nails at the moment too!

L-R: Pinta,Black Cherry Chutney,Russian Navy and Lincoln Park After Dark

And these ones were OPI polishes I've been curious about for a while and decided to finally try them out!

L-R: You Don't Know Jacques (love thisss!), Cajun Shrimp, Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees & Parlez-Vous OPI?

My favourites so far are You Don't Know Jacques which is such an unusual colour,I was wary of buying this because I saw on Clumps of Mascara that it looked kind of muddy on darker skintones but I swatched it last night and I LOVE IT! I'm not going to rock in on my toes,because it might look like I have some crazy nail fungus or something. Not cool. lol
And my next love is Russian Navy- I lost it in Manchester the second time I wore it and spent ages trying to find a dupe for it- Barry M, Models Own... but it wasn't the same! Any other cool nails colours I should try?

Okay..so I'm having a teeny tiny blog sale. I have a teeny tiny problem..with buying nail polish...I don't even have long nails but if I see a colour that I like I just *have* to have it! I have over 50 nail varnishes and only 10 fingers and 10 toes so needless to say I've gotta let some of this stuff go!

First up Nails Inc : Saville Row and Hanover Square. £5 each or both for £9 including postage.

Secondly OPI's. Baguette Me Baguette me not and Kreme de la Kremlin. From the France collection and Russian collection respectively. £6 each or £11 both including postage.

If you are interested leave your Paypal address in the comments and I'll send you an invoice. Internationals please email me first and I'll let you know the price of postage. I send all my items by recorded delivery.

Anyways I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! FOTN coming tomorrow!

don't rob a bank- chunky lace up boots

I have a little fetish for chunky black lace up boots atm. I've seen a few pricey ones by Chloe and Miu Miu buuttt there are cheaper alternatives for us that are less financially blessed. I lovee these boots so much because they are perfect for people like me who can't walk in high heels to save their life-the chunky heel seems to counteract that perfectly! I already have the brown ones from Primark (£18!!!) so I'm on my way to pick one of these beauties up!

Peacocks £30

Miss Selfridge £70

I'm not sure which ones to get? They are practically the same! Has anyone got them? Are they comfy? Hmmm...
FOTD coming soon and pics from my Carnaby St haul!

P.S: 99 followers! OMG! it's greatly appreciated! xx

The amazing WAH nails opened a pop up salon in Selfridges,last week. I booked an appointment for the first day! The girl next to me was getting pearls and diamonds put on her nails- they looked sooo cool!
I got Minx nails-which are basically printed panels that are applied with heat to your nails. They last up to two weeks and don't chip. They've been seen on the likes of Katy Perry,Beyonce,Kerri Hilson and Lady Gaga!
I went for this:


Another example of kickass MINX patterns! I'm not generally a fan of florals but these are so pretty!
More pics of work created by the talented WAH nails staff!

Did any of you manage to catch them last week? If not pop down to 420 Kingsland Road,London,E8 and GET YO NAILS DID!

My top S/S 10 makeup looks

Here are some of my most anticipated and admired looks for S/S '10!


We saw it on the F/W 09 catwalks of Dior with frosty lilac and mid-berry toned shadow and it's trailed all the way through to next season. As seen on the gorge Miss Donaldson at Versace. Now its a lighter,less intense wash of lilac along the eyelid and along the waterline.Teamed with a pink,nudish lip this look is perfect for a lazy picnic in the park and a pastel sundress! I loveee purple because it makes brown and green eyes really POP!
(did anyone actually do that "half-moon" manicure,that everyone was raving on about? I wasn't too keen,it looks so weird to me!)

Glossy Gothic

I'll always be a big fan of the smoky eye. It always looks stylish and effortless sexy. This look just screams "I've been rolling around with a boy all night,and I'm doing the walk of shame but hey,at least I put on some lip gloss!". And I think Lanvin pulled this look off to a tee!

To do the blackest of black smokey eye I swear by MAC in Carbon ( of course!) and Urban Decay Glide on 24 in Zero

The Bold and the Beautiful

I lovelovelove LOVE this look! The mussed up hair,the airbrushed skin but ESPECIALLY the bold,matte lips!Black cat eyeliner and red lips has been done to death and this is a refreshing change. I like this orange red colour soo much! I'm a bit scared of matte lipstick because it can make your lips look really chapped and dry but I'm definitely going to give this a try! Prada ftw!

Bare Faced Chic

I've always heard that it takes a lot of makeup to look like you don't have a lot of make-up on- that is sooo true! When I try to do the whole "I only wear tinted moisturiser and Vaseline" look, I just look terrible! This look is amazing because I wish I could ever look as fresh faced and dewy as this!

The "Ken dumped me!"

I decided to call this the "he dumped me!" look because I was looking through the John Galliano show pictures with my sis and she said that she thought this look was what Barbie would look like if she caught Ken cheating on her with Sindy! Obvs, I thought that was hilarious! I can see her point, the dolly pink cheeks are very Barbie-esque!This look was also done by the legendary Pat McGrath! This tempts me to pull my MAC Dollymix or Nars Orgasm out and try and give pink cheeks a go again.

So that's my round up! Any looks that you're looking forward to wearing this spring?

Review: African Black Soap and Dark&Lovely Deep Repair Cream

My skin has been going out of control lately. I have always had fairly "normal" skin but recently have noticed it being majorly oily and I have a few dark marks from previous spots :(
I was perusing Specktra and saw a recommendation for African Black Soap that they were selling on Coastal Scents. So I was in a black Hair and Beauty store today and decided to pick this up:

DuDu-Osun Black Soap.

My sister and I spent a while laughing at the name but people are swearing by this stuff so I thought I would give it a try.
It looks like this:

What it does:

This is a traditional African Black soap made in Nigeria. It is made with pure natural ingredients and herbs with no artificial colours or preservatives.
It cleanses,nourishes and protects your skin while leaving your skin feeling soft and fresh.

Pure Honey
Shea Butter
Osun (camwood)
Palmkernel Oil
Cocoa Pod Ash
Palm Bunch ash
Aloe Vera
Lime & Lemon juice and oil

My verdict

I used this yesterday and at first I HATED IT! It made my skin feel...squeaky? But when I dried off my face,my skin felt baby soft. I was seriously impressed.A few others had said they had stopped using it because of the smell but I think it smells quite nice and a nice change from other over perfumed soaps.
My skin felt a little tight afterwards and it's recommended that you follow up your cleaning routine with some unrefined shea butter but I feel that any rich moisturiser will do. I find shea butter way too greasy for daytime use. I'm going to keep on using it and see how it goes!

Next I got:

Dark&Lovely Body- Deep Repair extra rich cocoa butter.

I suffer from really dry,cracked skin in the winter and with the cold season fast approaching I was looking for something that would really hold up this season.

What it does:

Provides 24hr non-stop moisture . With a formula enriched with Vitamin E ,it nourishes and soothes your skin. Enriched with glycerin it maintains optimal moisturisation throughout the day. Durably nourished and repaired skin ,your skin is soothed ,naturally soft and radiant.

My Verdict:

I got this as first as a tester in a magazine and I was instantly HOOKED BY THE SMELL! I put some on my hands and my best friend said I smelt like chocolate milkshake topped with cream! haha. It really smells that amazing,I literally wanted to eat it! I've never tried the Dark&Lovely Body range before and was happy to find it really did offer 24 hour relief from dry skin and wasn't sticky and absorbed into my skin really quickly. Added bonus you get a HUGE 400mls for £3.39! I'll definitely be stocking up on this one in the next few months.

My sister also bought me the infamous GOSH Darling. Somehow I thought it would be like MAC's Fresh Brew (horrible in the tube-divine on) but I was horribly mistaken. It literally makes me look like a corpse. There a quite a few available at my nearest Superdrug so if anyone wants one let me know,I'll be more than happy to post one over.

Has anyone else had one of those- " I soooo thought it would look good but it soooo doesn't" moments? (I thought blue eyeshadow was the sh*t when I was about 11. CRINGE!)
