Fashion Haul

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. Recently I went shopping and bought a few bits so I thought I would share with you, what I got.
First up is this peach dress this is from Dorothy Perkins, it's quite a thick material so it will be better for Spring but still nice for Summer. It fits really nice to my shape and I love the colour and it was only £10 which is such a bargain.
Next up is this purple pencil skirt that is from New Look it was £14.99, if you've read my blog for a while you will know purple is my favourite colour which was a reason for me buying the skirt. This skirt is also smart and I can wear in Autumn as it is a thicker material.
These high waisted shorts were also from New Look and were £19.99, I have a few pair of shorts but non are high waisted so I wanted to buy some. These are really soft material and fit so nicely and will be great for Summer.
This pink vest cami top was from also from New Look and was £9.99, this was also to go with the high waisted shorts and it's a nice outfit for the Summer. I love this detailing on the bottom of the top it's really pretty and the material is really soft.
Last up is this dress from Primark, it's a gorgeous purple shade, I wanted it in blue but they didn't have my size but I might go get it in blue too as it's only a £5 and is such a bargain and you can't go wrong. I love the design of the dress and it's T-Shirt type material.

Have you bought any new clothes recently?

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Sugar Apple Review and Nail Art

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. Today I'm doing a nail post I haven't done one of these in ages and it will be nice to do them again.
I've tried the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine nail polishes before and thought they were really nice and so I was glad to try Sugar Apple as its such a gorgeous colour. This was nicely sent to me by the lovely Charlotte, so thank you to her and go check her blog out.

Sugar Apple is a gorgeous mint bluey green sort of shade, its a pastel shade and is perfect for the spring and summer.

When applying these nail polishes you need 2 or 3 coats for it to be opaque, I put two coats on my nails and it was fine. They have their own glossy shine so you don't really need a topcoat. These nail polishes are quite thick compared to normal nail polishes but are still easy to apply.

I haven't had mine on long so I don't know for chipping but usually Barry M nail polishes last a while before they start chipping, so that's always a bonus.

On my nails I also added these Anchor Nail Art Nail Tattoos just to add a bit of something to the nails and I really like them, these nail tattoos are really easy to apply and stay on ages.

I love this nail polish and will definitely be wearing it a lot this summer.

What's your favourite Barry M nail polishes?

My Perfume Collection

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day and enjoying the sunny weather, I know I am. Today I've got a perfume collection post, I don't have too many but I thought I would share with you the ones I have. I don't know how well it will turn out though, I find it really hard to describe scents, does anyone else?
First up is the One Direction Our Moment perfume, you probably already know but if you didn't I am a big fan of One Direction so I was excited to try their perfume. I love the bottle and think it's really cute. It's a sweet citrusy sort of sent.

The Perfume Shop description of the perfume is "The sparkling, juicy and feminine fragrance is made up of splashes of fresh fruit and seasonal flowers infused with undertones of warm musk. The pink grapefruit, wild berries and redcurrants, combined with the delicacy of jasmine petals, and frangipani with the dry woody tones of musk and patchouli leave an enticing and playful scent on the skin."

The next perfume is Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck, I'm also a big fan of Taylor Swift and after trying the original Wonderstruck I was happy that I had this perfume to try too. I love this bottle I just think it's really pretty, I love the colour and the little charms you get, they are so cute. This also a sweet sort of scent, that's the sort of scents I go for and this is a fresh scent.

The Perfume Shop description of the perfume is "An Oriental Gourmand, Enchanted introduces a new dimension to the Wonderstruck portfolio, with an irresistible blend of luscious wild berries and sugar-glazed petals, wrapped in a touch of sensuality for a captivating signature. Enchanted has an addictive balance of creamy flowers and sensual woods which blend harmoniously and add an alluring quality to the fragrance."

Next up is Vera Wang Princess, I don't know where the lid is for this but I don't think it matters too much. It is still a nice bottle but I think the others are nicer. This is a sweet scent but it's stronger and not as sweet as the others.

The Perfume Shop description is "Princess Perfume by Vera Wang, this extraordinary fragrance was created by Vera Wang. Its sexy scent includes a mixture of waterlily, apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin, dark chocolate, amber, musk, and vanilla."

Next is the original Taylor Swift Wonderstruck, this also has a cute bottle, the smaller bottles don't get the charms but it's still a nice bottle. There isn't a huge difference with this one and Enchated but I think this one is sweeter and more fruity than Enchanted.

The Perfume Shop description is "A charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits, kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence."

Last up is Kate by Kate Moss, this bottle is simple but elegant I still like it but think I prefer the One Direction and Taylor Swift bottles. This is a strong but sweet scent it's hard to describe.

Fragrance Direct description is "The fragrance reflects Kate's personality, it is seductive and sophisticated, a mix of elegance and adventure. It is an embodiment of her free spirit, sex appeal, mystery and life stile which sometimes can be wild and edgy.The vibrant floral-spicy opening of forget me not, orange blossom and pink pepper, transforms into an opulent mix of rose, peony and lily of the valley. Base notes of sandal wood, patchouli and musk reveal Kate's darker side."

If you like the look of any of the perfume's definitely go smell them in the shops and you can judge for yourself if you like them.

What are your favourite perfumes?

OOTN- Out On The Town

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a great weekend, yesterday I went out for my friends birthday and I thought I would share with you my outfit, I haven't done an outfit post in a while and I loved this outfit that I wore, so I thought I would do a blog post on it. I didn't have enough time to take pictures on my camera so this is just of my phone but the quality isn't too bad.
The dress is from Jane Norman and I got it about a month ago in the sale for £25, so that was a bargain and I just love this dress it's tight fitting dress and hugs to my body perfectly. My shoes are from Matalans and I got them a while ago so I don't know if you can still get them, the heels aren't too high and they are easy to walk and quite comfortable so I really like wearing them.

This dress is perfect for nights out and it will fit petite and taller people, I'm quite small at 5'2 and my sister tried this dress on and she's a lot taller and it fitted her too. The dress hasn't got too much going on and I just think it's really sleek and elegant. 

The only accessories I wore with this dress was earrings, I could have also worn a bracelet but with this dress I didn't think I need to many accessories as the dress was the main focus of the outfit.

I hope you enjoyed the post, what is your favourite dress to wear on a night out?

The British Tag

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a good day. Today I thought I would do a tag post, I've not done one in a while and I always enjoy these type of posts and videos. BeautyCrush created this tag and I've seen it going round YouTube so I thought I would do it, I haven't been tagged by anyone but I thought it was a nice tag to do.
1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
With me I don't drink a lot, I know I need to drink more but I don't, in hot drinks I only like tea and hot chocolate and I only really drink them in Autumn and Winter when it's cold, in hot weather I always prefer cold drinks. In a usual day though I would say 1 or 2 and I have 2 sugars.
2. Favourite part of your roast?

I love roasts there one of my favourite meals, its hard to choose what my favourite part of a roast is but I would say the Yorkshire Puddings or the Meat or Stuffing. Roasts are just the best.
3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

This is a hard one cause whatever biscuits we have I will dunk, I would say chocolate digestives or hobnobs.

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?

This is an easy one for me, Afternoon Tea, having a cup a tea with scones or cake is always the best. I also like having fish and chips.
5. Favourite word?

I don't really have a favourite word but if I had to choose I would probably say lovely, you can probably tell I use it a lot.
6. Cockney rhyme slang?

The only one I know is Apple and Pears-Stairs, I don't know any others.
7. Favourite sweet?

I am more of a chocolate person than sweets but my favourite sweets would be wine gums, midget gems, fruit pastels, toffee's, eclairs, laces and jazzies, there just the ones I can think of off the top of my head but there is probably more.
8. What would your pub be called?

I'm not sure I've never really thought of a pub name but I would say "The Past Time" I think its nice but also I would want it to be a traditional pub, so the name suits it and it would be nice and homely. 
9. No.1 British person?

I don't really have a favourite British person but I would say Miranda Hart she's just hilarious or Kate Middleton she always looks classy and elegant and seem's down to earth.
10. Favourite shop / restaurant?

My favourite shops are New Look and Primark for clothes and beauty obviously Boots and Superdrug. 

Favourite Restaurant is a traditional pub type restaurant they are very British and have nice food.
11. What British song pops into your head?

It's a bit embarrassing but Spice Up Your Life by the Spice Girls just popped into my head. I grew up listening to Spice Girls and watching them on video.
12. Marmite.

Ewww nooooooo, I hate it!

I tag any British Bloggers who haven't done the tag.

Send me a link to your post, if any of you do it. 

Also answer one of the questions in the comments, would love to see your answers.

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Paint

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, today I have a review post for you, I've recently had a variety of posts but I always love doing beauty posts especially reviews, so here it is.
I know these eyeshadow paints have been out for quite a while and I've seen a few reviews on them and heard really good things about them. I had seen them before but they were only a couple shades that appealed to me, I wasn't much of a fan of the brighter shades.

About a month ago while I was browsing in Poundland I found this Golden Bronze shade so I couldn't say no and had to buy it and you can't go wrong for a pound when they are usually £4.99.

They only had this Golden Bronze shade but I always thought this and Rich Russet were shades that were gorgeous and I would go for. Since buying it I have worn it numerous times and just loved it. Like in the name its a golden bronzy shade which is pigmented and metallic so if you don't like metallic shades, I wouldn't advice these but it is easy to apply eyeshadow over the top to matte it out if you want.

These have sponge doe-foot applicators like lipglosses and are easy to apply, I like to put it on with the applicator and then blend with my finger. When using these they are quite wet and thick but dries really quickly, so it's best to do one eye at a time and after they dry they do not budge at all which is great especially for these summer months when you want your makeup to last.

I like the packaging it's simple but sleek and shows you the exact colour your getting.

Overall I think these are great products they are very pigmented and long lasting and I want to buy more just wish they had more wearable shades.

Have any of you tried the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Paints? What do you think to them?

Tour De France

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. The Tour De France came round Yorkshire yesterday and I went to support and watch, here are some pictures from the day.
Some of the pictures at the beginning were me on a wall cause it was that crowded and not much space, so it was hard to take a good picture but a few of the cyclists that were near the back came through and I was able to take better pictures.

It was a really enjoyable day and a good experience, I'm glad that I got to witness the Tour De France in my home town.

Did any of you watch the Tour De France?

It's only a quick post but I hope you enjoyed.

My Peaceful Serenity

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day, today is going to be a different post, it's a lifestyle type post and is on one of my favourite places that is close by to where I live and has so many memories here.
We just call this place the Dam and it's just a nice place to come when I want a break, to escape everything and to think about things, it's so beautiful and takes you away from everything.

When I was a kid, as a family we used to walk on here and feed the ducks and I have so many fond memories here.

It's a place I never get tired of visiting, it's never too busy and is quite quiet which is always nice and it is good to have a break every once in a while and have a walk and not stay cooped inside on the Internet all the time.

Especially in summer this is the perfect place to go to just relax and enjoy the sun and the view.

What is your favourite place to visit?
