NOTD - Essie Fiji Nail Polish

So this was my first EVER essie nail polish. I had seen loads of pictures on Instagram and other blogs, and I thought it looked such a gorgeous colour. Yes, they are quite a bit more expensive than Barry M etc, but to be honest the quality is better. As I'm typing all day in my job my nails usually chip the day after i paint them, even if I wear a top coat! This lasted on my nails 3 days and then it only slightly chipped, which is good for my nails! Especially when they are not in the best condition at the moment with having acrylics on them previously. 
I Love the colour I think its so pretty especially for summer and I only had to use 2 coats.

Whats your favourite Essie nail polish?

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I have been wearing double wear since I was 17, and I cannot recommend it enough. Over the years I have tried other foundations but no other foundation seems to compare, for my skin anyway. 
'Stay-in-place Make Up' It really is. I rarely wear a powder and this lasts on me all day. Even when I was in london and I was outside all day I didn't need to re-do my make up at all until I was going out at night, its amazing! 
I know quite a few reviews have said Its too thick, but for me it's just right...a few years back I broke out in spots all over my face and I didn't even need to put on a concealer as the foundation covered all of them. Even now I only have the odd spot and blemishes and it's still the perfect coverage for me, it seems to make your skin look perfect even if it isn't! 
The only one thing that annoys me about this foundation is when I have my picture taken with the flash on. If I don't put much bronzer over the top I look like a ghost beacuse of the SPF in the foundation. It does bug me but If I'm going on a night out and I know theres going to be pictures taken I just put extra bronzer on (obviously not too much, don't want to look like an oompa lumpa!) and that usually helps.

I wear the colour 'Fresco' you can buy it here

Recent Beauty Buys

Barry M Gelly Nail Paints
I've tried a couple of the gelly nail paints before and I really liked them, so I went to buy 'Lychee' and I saw 'Papaya' while I was there and I thought It was a gorgeoes colour for summer so I had to buy that one too.

Essie 'Figi"
This is my first ever Essie nail polish! I've seen loads of pictures on Instagram of people wearing this and I've wanted It for a while, It looks gorgeous.

Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl Eyeliner
I picked up a new eyeliner as I ran out of this one, this is one of my favourites it's so pigmented!

Rimmel Apocalips
I've wanted to try these for ages after seeing loads of reviews on them. I bought 'Big Bang' which will have to be worn on my next night out!

Max Factor Clump Defy by Falsh Lash Effect Mascara 
I'd ran out of my normal False Lash Effect mascara, so I thought I would give the 'Clump Defy' one a try, Ive tried it a couple of times and I really like it, but I haven't really noticed a difference between this one and the original False Lash Effects to be honest, none of them make my eyelashes clump though!

Have you bought any of these recently? What did you think of them?

I've Been Buying...

I LOVE this necklace from Peacocks it was £7 which I don't think is too bad for this style of necklace, I never usually shop in Peacocks, but my mum wanted to go in so I'm glad I did!

These shoes are so cute from Asda, I haven't had chance to wear them yet though because I don't want my toes to be cold!!

Pinafores are everywhere right now and I think there so cute. I bought a plain black one from Primark a couple of months ago and then I saw this lovely one on Boohoo and it was only £15, bargain!

So I bought the Ebay jacket from my Ebay Wishlist and I really like it! I've been wanting one like this for ages ever since I used to borrow one similar from my sister and then she sold it on Ebay :( It looks better on than off, I think its nice to put on when its one of them days where its not cold enough for a coat but still a bit chilly.

I bought this playsuit from Missguided for my holiday as its still far to cold in england to wear something like this! It reminds me of one thats in Topshop at the minute, Its so pretty.

London Haul

On the last day we were in London I wanted to do some shopping! Being the shopaholic I am I was so excited to go to Oxford Street. I got some bits from Primark, Topshop & Selfridges, and we also went to Harrods the day before. I didn't go mad because after a couple of hours I thought, we've got all these shops in Manchester I can shop any day, I want to go and sight-see! I was also really surprised to find out that our Primark in Manchester is bigger than the one on Oxford Street! 

Mac Matt Bronze Bronzer & Mac Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish 

I've wanted to try Nars Sheer glow for ages, so I thought I would get matched up while I was there. They matched me up with 'Deauville' 

I only got 1 thing from Topshop, the Joni Jeans, I've also wanted these for a while. They fit like the leigh Jeans as well so there great!


Haha, I had to get some sort of souvenir!

So I've lived in England all my life and I'd never been to London! I've wanted to go for years so when my boyfriend suprised me on my birthday with a weekend away in London and also to see the script at the o2 I was sooo excited!!

I was such a little tourist I wanted to see everything that I could, and I took a lot of pictures (this is only about half of them!) 

We got on one of the Hop on Hop of buses which was great because you got to see all of London while you were going around but it was soooo cold so by the second day we gave up and just got the tube!
