Pin head...

Hi everyone just thought I'd share a sort of hair tutorial (not really but anyways) that helped to get texture and curl in my hair overnight. All I did was take like 1-2 inch sections of hair, wrap them around my fingers and pin them to my head. I did that with all of my hair...

I did this while my hair was dry and then the next morning after a shower and make up I took all of the grips out and this is what I ended up with.

I then styled my hair and put the front up and I really liked the light curls it made as it added texture and volume without me having to use any heat or products apart from a little bit of hairspray.

Then it rained ....

Haha I was gutted that it all fell out but there's still a wave and a bit of texture in it so I guess it's alright.

Rainy Wednesday love

A few NOTDs :D

I can't remember what days I had these nails but I just thought I'd share some with you :D

Gosh - Frou Frou

Miss Sporty - Red (not sure of the number but any red base will do)
Barry M - Red Glitter (over the top)

Models Own - Grace Green

Barry M Instant Nail Effects - Gold Foil
Barry M Instant Nail Effects - Purple Rain

Models Own - Dusty Mauve

Omg so excited for the new Models Own "Beetlejuice" Collection that is coming out early November.
The collection features FIVE brand new duo chrome colours that look B-E-A-UTIFUL :D
What their Facebook Page has to say :

" GOLDEN GREEN (a fresh energetic acid)

AQUA VIOLET (a true sky shimmer)

PURPLE BLUE (a vibrant punch of fuchsia indigo)

PINKY BROWN (a warm rusty pink) 

EMERALD BLACK (a bold-blackened midnight peacock). 

Each bottle contains four pearlescent colours mixed into one gleaming shade, and the complex colour-shifting, with flashes of vivid tones and ethereal hues, gives a shimmering duo chrome finish.

I'm not sure if it's going to be limited edition or not but you can check out pictures of the polishes on their Facebook Page

That's all for this post people, talk soon

Stupid Sky...

Hi guys,
I'm getting really annoyed at the fact that at my new house that I've currently lived in for 4 weeks STILL doesn't have internet! We've phoned umpteen times and now we're waiting for a new router which could then take anywhere between 4 and 14 days to activate :(
The only places I have internet are at Uni and at our friends house but I always forget to write on here.
I wanted to start doing weekly youtube videos but I can't do that either :( I'm going to try and get a Halloween tutorial up hopefully before the end of the week but I don't know yet. It should definately be up by the end of next week.
I'm going to be doing Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas as that's what I'm being for Halloween with the boyfriend going as Jack!
I'm also going to have to practice doing my mums, sisters, friends, cousins, dads and boyfriends makeup on myself so I might upload those aswell.
My mums going as a scary Alice in Wonderland and my dads going as a "Bad Hatter"
My sister and my cousins girlfriend are going as dead cheerleaders so I need to practice that aswell.
And my cousin is going as a vampire which is pretty simple but I shall practice anyway.

So Halloween is going to be very busy for me as I have to do makeup for 6 people plus me and I'll probably have about 4 or 5 hours to do it in for a party on the 29th.

Right I think I've written enough for now. I'm in uni tomorrow so I shall try and come up with something interesting to put on this blog for then. We shall see.

Let's Get Back on Track...

You know when sometimes you sit in bed and think about the things you used to do that made you happy, yeah?
Well I was doing this a little while ago and I suddenly remembered this blog haha! I remember sitting down and typing and just being able to say whatever I wanted to so I feel like I should start this up again. It took me a while to remember my password and how everything works but I'm going to try and make an effort with this. I feel like so much has happened since the last time I wrote a blog I mean I'm just about to start my second year of Uni, I've got a little puppy dog, and my collection of nail varnish has almost doubled (which means my bank balance is still very low so at least something's stayed the same). It's the 14th today and I'm heading back to Uni in a weeks time so my goal for myself is to write something, even just a sentence, on this blog everyday! I understand that it will probably be difficult but it's something I want to do, for a year hopefully just so I can look back and read about what I've done :).

So today is the start, well technically it's 2am in the morning so I'll probably do another post later and who knows maybe there will be some pictures or videos to look forward to haha!

TTFN guys Ta Ta For Now

New Phone Case

£1.99 from ebay and it's just awesome :D

NOTD x 2

I FOUND IT!!!!!!

GOSH Holographic (no.549) I got the last one in my local Superdrug at the Trafford Centre in Manchester and OMG it's amazing I must've spent about 20 minutes just staring at my nails haha! It was £2.50 which is great and I am on a mission to find another one for a giveaway when I have more followers :)

So sparkly :)

The other NOTD is with ELF.

All nails have "Innocent" on them and my ring finger has "Glitter Glam" over the top. ACE!

ELF Haul...

I placed my very first order with ELF last week and I am sooooo happy with the products I got. I saw that some of the nail varnishes were 33% off and as I'm becoming a little bit of a Nailaholic I got them all. I also got the Natural Lash Kit as I needed a new pair of lashes and for £1.50 I can't complain about them. The last thing I got was the Contouring Blush And Bronzing Powder. I've heard quite a few people mention this as one of the good products from ELF so I thought I'd try it out. Anyways I ordered the products on a Saturday night and it arrived the Thursday after which I thought was good considering they don't sort through orders until Monday :D. So the products were nicely packaged in bubble wrap and nothing was broken so yeah I will definately be placing an order from them again. Here are the photos of what I got.
The nicely packaged items :)

All of my products...

The cardboard packaging of the Contouring Blush And Bronzing Powder (Sorry it's not the right way round guys)

The matte plastic packaging for the product. I liked this as it's very sleek and slim so fits very well into my bag :)

(All the pictures are coming up sideways and I'm not sure why) But these are the blush and the bronzer and I have to say that I love these. They have a bit of shimmer but I don't mind too much and they go on nice and smoothly. 10/10 :D

Swatch of the blush and bronzer

Nail Polish 1 of 8 this is "Glitter Glam" and it's a very sheer gold glitter which looks great over a base colour but I'm guessing that with about 3 coats it'd look fab on it's own :)

This is "Twinkle" and it's a very (unfortunately) sheer clear polish with rainbow glitters in it. I don't think you could wear this on it's own as it is very sheer but over a base colour it's pretty.

This is "Party Purple" and it only takes 2 coats to be completely opaque so I likey :D It's a dark purple with very fine silver glitter in it.

This colour is "Metal Madness" and it's a gunmetal grey with very fine rainbow glitter in it. Again this only takes 2 coats to look good but this polish is one that dissapointed me because of the brush...
As you can see the brush seemed just worn and distressed and no matter what I tried it won't straighten out so it makes applying the polish very difficult as it just gloops up on the end and all drops on to the nail :(
2 coats of "Mint Cream" and I am good to go. The picture makes it seem a lot more blue than it is in real life but it is a true mint green and I love it.

This is "Desert Haze" and it is a lovely brown/nude colour. I likey very much and again 2 coats :)

"Lilac Dream" takes about 3 coats to be completely opaque but when it is it's a really pretty polish
THE most perfect light nude shade ever! 2/3 coats and it's done. It'd be great for a french manicure but I like it on it's own. My favourite polish that I got :)
Last but not least are the lashes. I haven't tried them yet but for what I can tell they look like they will be nice :)

So that's my ELF haul if anybody has any suggestions of other things I should get from them then feel free to leave it in a comment.

Thanks, Amy xx
