Fresh from MissGuided+

So you might have seen on my recent fashion wish list a pair of beautiful blue floral print harem pants. On the 13th I ordered them and they arrived yesterday!
I was so excited when they arrived. I bought a size smaller than what I am as I've recently started taking my health seriously and I'm losing weight. I was still a little worried they wouldn't fit as so many of my friends have told me MissGuided often come up small and even in the 'normal' range they have to get a size bigger than what they are. BUT... They fitted almost perfectly! When I say almost perfect I mean you can get away with wearing them although you need to lose a couple of lbs for them to look perfect.
I was very lucky to have an extra 20% off sale items code so with postage it only cost me £12.59!

Have you bought from MissGuided before?

* Sorry for the use of rubbish pictures. I recently came out of hospital and I've not been feeling very photogenic!

2015 Fashion Wish List

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
1. BooHoo+ Honey Tribal Print Relaxed Jogger. If you had said to me a year ago would you like these I'd of said no. But I've recently fallen in love with harem pants. I've also fallen in love with tribal and floral prints. I need these in my life. I'm just waiting around for the next 20% student discount. £18

2. BooHoo+ Lily Plunge Neck Skater Dress. I really like this dress, just wish it was a little longer. I'm currently on a weight loss journey and I'm planning to lose 35kg and this dress would look beautiful once I have. £22

3. MissGuided+ PU Sleeve Checked Coat. I am so in love with this coat, I have a little obsession with tartan and PU at the moment. I'd be in tartan overload with my scarf, leggings and backpack that I already have in the same colour. To be honest I want the whole outfit. I love PU leather leggings. £49

4. MissGuided+ Cuff Hem Trousers Floral Print. As I said before I am in love with harem pants and floral patterns, I just can't get enough of these pants. I am hoping, fingers crossed they stay in the sale and in my size for a little while longer while I hold out for a 20% discount and I can do a massive MissGuided shop. £12 
*UPDATE* 13.02.15 I just ordered these harem pants, can't wait for them to come! There is currently an extra 20% off sale items!

2015 Beauty WishList

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |

1. NARS Cosmetics Satin Lip Pencils in Luxembourg and Yu. I am really in love with lip pencils at the moment. I've heard NARS lip pencils have amazing pigmentation and I've seen loads of amazing reviews. £17.50 each

2. MAC Studio Sculpt Super Black Lash. I was in the MAC store the other day and one of the lovely ladies gave me the brush for this mascara to try out before I bought it and it is fair to say I've fallen in love with this brush. It lengthens the lashes without clumping them up. £14.50

3. Bleach London I Saw Red hair dye. I've been using Crazy Colour for a few weeks now and love my shade but I think I love Bleach London's I Saw Red more, it is so bright and I'd love to try it. £5

4. K√©rastase Nutritive Masquintense Cheveux Epais Treatment for Dry & Thick Hair. I've got such dry hair at the moment, I ruined it using a £1 bleach hair dye from a bargain shop. I'm trying to fix it but nothing is happening, I've heard so many amazing things about K√©rastase so I'd love to try out this hair mask. £22.80

5. Zoeva ROSE GOLDEN Complete Eye Set. I fell in love with Zoeva brushes when I got one free at a beauty blogger event and I really love this eye set. I don't wear make-up often but when I do it is all about the eyes and brows with me so this set is perfect. I also love anything rose gold. €65

Models Own Dinky Pinky

Dinky Pinky NP194
The other day while shopping for a friend's birthday I popped into the Models Own kiosk, they had an amazing deal of 5 items for £15. I normally pay £5 each varnish so 5 for £15 had me sold, I was actually lucky enough to get 6 items for £15 along with a free eyebrow pen. I gave my friend 5 items and the eyebrow pen and kept the 6th for myself! Cheeky I know but I do love Models Own.
I couldn't wait to try out this varnish, I've always got such high hopes when it comes to Models Own and I was not disappointed until I got to work the next day!

 My nails wouldn't stop chipping! I'm not sure if I didn't use a good enough top coat or it is just one of those varnishes that chip super easily. I find little pink bits of varnish all around the house and even in my hair! I've found myself repainting my nails daily and although the varnish starts to dry pretty quickly it is only artificially dry, it takes a while before your nails become fully dry which can be annoying for me as I can never sit still long enough. I find you have to wait about 30 minutes before you can use your hands again and not get imperfections on your nails.

This varnish is perfect with just two coats, and a top coat makes it pop, it looks much better on nails rather than this nail wheel. I always find pink a hard share to photograph, as it never looks as good.

- Great consistency
- Great colour and pigment
- Only needs two coats
- Not too thick
- Good coverage

Although I find this varnish chips easily, for me it is totally worth it because I love the shade so much.

Ripley's Believe It or Not! Part 1

After seeing an amazing deal on Wowcher my friend & I decided to go to Ripley's Believe It or Not! in London. I go past it all the time and I've always wanted to go as I didn't get to go when I was in Orland, Florida but with it normally being £50 for two people it was never really that high on the list of places to go. We were lucky enough to pay £22.95 for fast track tickets so £11.48 each. 
Massive rocking chair. Apparently it was used to advertise.

 I was actually like a child at Christmas and honestly couldn't wait to get there. We arrived around 2:40pm, we got our tickets and got in the lift to the 5th floor where you start off (you work your way back down) We went through a few rooms, some amazing things but I was a little dishearten. I guess when you hype something up to yourself you can be disappointed with the outcome if it doesn't meet your expectations. Just as I was really starting to enjoy it it all went wrong. 
We were at 'The Dungeon' and there was a gate with the title "believe it or not this gate opens" after about a minute of pretty much attacking the gate trying to open it an alarm started to go off, it made us jump a bit and we honestly thought we set the alarm off by trying to open the gate, thinking we shouldn't have been touching it. We carried on walking until I could smell burning and looked over the balcony to see everyone leaving, it turns out it was the fire alarm! I was a little shocked that there were no staff members to tell us where to exit and even tell us it was a fire alarm, it just sounded like any alarm you'd hear at a museum if you touched part of the display and you're not allowed. We walked down the fire exit which was about 5 floors and we kept getting lost as it wasn't amazingly displayed as to were to go, I spoke to a member of staff and she signed our tickets to be able to go back a different day. It's a shame that I had been waiting so long to go there for something like this to happen. 
Overall the part of the exhibition I did see I did enjoy and I can't wait to go back and see the rest. Hopefully they honor our tickets and I don't have to complain, I guess I'll keep you posted on what happens. 

Here are a few pictures from the day.

3 reasons I love London

There are many cities that have captured my heart in my 21 years of life but to me nothing can compare to London. I've lived in London for 21 years now (my whole life) and I think it is safe to say no two days have been the same. 

Three reasons I love London!

1. The diversity
Gay Pride 2013
London is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world and I am very proud to call it home. I don't think you could go to another city and see so many different people. Around every corner there is something new that I've not seen before, from restaurants to art work. You can never see the whole of London, there is always something new happening. London also has a wide range of restaurants from different countries, it doesn't matter where in the world you are from if you're craving something from your hometown you can find it somewhere in London.
 I love the fact it can be 6am in the morning and I'll see someone in a tiger onesie or at Gay Pride and see a man in a tutu or fairy costume. I feel like in London you can be whoever you want to be, wear whatever you want to wear and no one will truly judge you.

2. The attractions
View from my hospital bed! London Eye
I am lucky enough to live 15 minutes in car away from The London Eye and Big Ben. But with the London Underground you can always be roughly 20 - 30 minutes away from so many iconic attractions, it can be said that the London Underground is an attraction in itself. There are so many amazing parks in London from St James' Park to Primrose Hill, you're never too far from some greenery where you can sit down and take in the beautiful views.
We also have amazing markets like Borough, Portobello, Camden and Spitalfields. Most of the museums in London are FREE. My favourite attraction in London is The Shard, I can see it from my window and it is currently the tallest building in the EU! There isn't many places in the world that have such an amazing building that is someone's home, a hotel, a restaurant and an attraction that allow you to see around the whole of the city.

3. Christmas
Mulled wine with amaretto - Winter Wonderland 2014
Christmas time is amazing in London, from Hyde Park Winter Wonderland to the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square. Londoners are known for being moody, don't speak to us on our morning commute to work but at Christmas you can feel happiness in the air. Everyone is a little less moody and we truly soak in the Christmas spirit. The beautiful Christmas lights down Oxford Street and the amazing window displays are must sees at Christmas. Christmas also means Somerset House open up the ice rink and everything seems a little more magical. And of course my two favourite things about Christmas in London are the free London Underground on NYE to make sure everyone gets home safely and Boxing Day sales. You never know where do go shopping because you're spoilt for choice.

I can honestly say I love London, I doubt I'll ever want to leave. We may have high living prices, extremely busy underground and awful weather but London, to me, is the best city in the world!
