Love Me Beauty: November

I had to blog about my most recent products from the Love Me Beauty box for November - I am thoroughly impressed with the amount of products I received for only £10!
Below are my first impressions and thoughts on the beauty box...

When logging on to select my box I was suprised to see new brands has been added to the website, such as OPI, Max Factor, and Bourjois (to name a few) and was really suprised to find such good quality well known brands!
I selected 5 products with the tokens I had given to me:

 Bronze Buffer Self tan remover:
 As an avid fake tan wearer I was entrigued by this sponge, said to correct any fake tan mis-haps! The product came nicely presented in a bag and directions on how to use. I was also interested to read you can use this product to remove white deodorant marks from clothes!
The sponge is a nice size and I can see it will be good to use in between fingers and around hand areas to remove any streaks - I look forward to using this product.

Eco Tools Eyeshadow brush
 This brush I selected as I have not got that many eyeshadow brushes in my collection, upon arrival I was very impressed with the way it was packaged, and also the quality. The brush itself is incredibly soft and states it can be used for shading, blending and highlighting. Also for any of those beauty lovers who are keen on 'green products' this uses a recycled aluminium and bamboo, and comes presented in a reusable eco pouch! I will definately check out the brand in future!

Bourjois eyepearls mini palatte
 This is a cute little set of eye shadows, perfect for travelling or if you are away for the weekend as it is so compact and neat. Includes a nice range of colours perfect for day wear, the 5 colours are all baked eyeshadows and feel silky, they are said to be easy to bleng and have 8 hours worth of wear.
On the back there are directions on where and how to use the shades, with one to illuminate, shade, outline, shimmer and sculpt -  a nice added touch for those who are unsure where to put each colour.

Mirabella lipstick in 'Fever'
 This lipstick in shade 'Fever' is a deep red - very nice for Autumn/Winter. It is said to be a 'Rich high pigment colour that goes on smoothly and stays put with no bleeding'. I own a few products from this brand and the quality is really good. I look forward to wearing this shade.

Max factor lipgloss in ' me me me '
This Max Factor lipgloss really looks lovely with specks of gold in it, would be perfect for Christmas parties! I was suprised to see Max Factor on the website as they are a very well known brand and I normally have not heard of the brands on Love Me Beauty!
This is the perfect lipgloss to keep in your clutch for a night out as it is so compact - I can't wait to add some on top of my lipstick's for a more glam festive look!

Re-Discovered perfume : Alien by Thierry Mugler

I have recently re-discovered a love for a perfume I had bought quite a while ago, whilst having a sort through my bedroom (I hate having a clear out but it has to be done every now and then) I found an old favourite at the back of my wardrobe - ALIEN By Thierry Mugler!
And after spraying a little on my wrists I remembered why I loved the unique scent!

Firstly can we just take a moment to appreciate the bottle - it is exquisite and looks like some sort of exotic jewel! The purple and gold look amazing together and its one of the prettiest bottles I own, I felt guilty for not displaying it!

The fragrance itself is described as being 'the elixir of absolute femininity' and 'A rich floral woody amber fragrance containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber it is a fragrance whose magic trails awakens your emotions' - A very striking description I think you'll agree, but it is such an unusual and unique scent! It is instantly recognisable, it is warm yet sweet with a 'musky lavender' smell ( I really am no fragrance expert so bare with me) but it is certainly long lasting!

Also I  feel like this perfume is a more suited to the Winter months as it is quite heavy, something I will definitely be wearing through the months ahead - also I have found it to be super long lasting, I will be sitting at my desk and suddenly catch a smell of it!

I'd say if you are into more subtle light scents this perfume probably isn't for you as it is so powerful and long lasting but for me it is a favourite!
One other point the bottle I bought was 'refillable' making it eco-friendly!
The bottle comes in various sizes and ranges in price between £47 and £77.50! Definitely worth the money in my opinion! Below is the link if you fancy taking a look at this one of kind scent:

Pinterest Inspiration : Winter Looks

As we are all aware it is only 5 weeks until CHRISTMAS! My favourite time of year!
I (like many others) was so excited to see the John Lewis penguin advert and for me it signals that the Christmas countdown can officially begin!
To make you all feel a tad more festive here are some beautiful images I found on Pinterest
 (don't worry theres plenty more where these came from)

So with the festive period drawing nearer, we all need to start:
 A. Christmas shopping (seriously though not long now)
B. Planning our outfits and what we'll wear over the Christmas holidays

I've been on Pinterest getting some inspiration and ideas as to what make-up trends will be perfect for the Winter season, and I've found some Id like to share and hopefully inspire you like they have me!


I am loving all of these looks - they would be fabulous for any Christmas parties or even on Christmas Day if you fancy dressing up!
Loving the gold glitter to add a touch of sparkle and magic, or even add some eye liner for a striking look or perhaps create a brown smokey eye wth lashings of mascara to really open up your eyes!
I want to try to recreate this look over Christmas!


Dark berry/plum lips are bang on trend for the Winter season and I am loving them! I definatly think the more matte lipsticks look better! Just be sure to check your teeth for lipstick transfer stains!
This darker lip shades would look great with brown smokey eye and some contouring on the cheeks for extra definintion!
There are plenty of dark lip colours around at the moment both drug store and high end so get searching for your favourite, it'll see you right through the months ahead!


Love all of these shades - at the moment I have 'pointy nails' which I am loving, and I enjoy picking which shade to have next - try matching your nails to your lipstick (again stick with dark reds and berrys) or go super Christmassy and add some glitter! Stunning for Christmas

 Hope you've enjoyed reading about some of my favourie make up looks for over the Christmas Holidays! & I hope they may have inspired you start thinking about your holiday make up!

New purchases: Winter Coats!

So as we all know the weather has most definitely changed, and it is now officially Autumn Winter.
And whilst browsing on ASOS last week I came across two coats which I had to purchase to get me ready for the colder months ahead.
The first is a black faux fur style coat by New Look in Black (Link Here) which at the time was on promotion for £33.50 - sadly now gone back to full price at £44.00
And the second was a black parka by ASOS themselves (Link Here) for £55.00

Please be aware this is my first 'fashion' post - please bear with me if the photos aren't the best - I'm no model and still getting to grips with poses ha! 
But many thanks to my Sister Victoria, who took the photos for me!

New Look Black Faux Fur Coat

This coat is perfect for evening or if you are going out somewhere in the day and wanted to wear a dressier jacket. 
I teamed the coat with:
Black Leigh Jeans from Topshop
Black patterned tshirt from H&M
Black boots from MissGuided (bought last year but they still stock similar versions)

ASOS Ultimate Black hooded parka

This black parka is perfect for day to day wear, parkas are everywhere at the moment and I love this one with the fur lining, it is very warm perfect for Autumnal days out, I wore the same clothes as above and just switched the shoes to a pair of black loafers from H&M.

Hope you enjoyed my post! It is slightly embarrassing posing for photos but I did actually enjoy it with my Sister being my little photographer!
Let me know if you'd like more 'fashion' posts? Thanks guys

My love for Halloween

Afternoon, so its a drizzly grey day  and I'm having a lazy Sunday, whist fighting off a headache and looking at photos of last nights Halloween party.
My friends Danielle & Cerri threw an amazing party last night at their house and I wanted to share with you my photos.
I have to say I think Halloween is my second favourite event of the year (Of course Christmas wins), but I love dressing up, applying spooky make up and celebrating with friends, it is fast becoming a tradition that we do something to celebrate All Hallows Eve - and I love it.
I decided to dress as a 'zombie/pyscho scrub nurse' and my Boyfriend Tom was a zombie/maniac Doctor.
My outfit was bought online from '' it was a plain Nurse Outfit which I added fake blood too to make it look distressed and like I had just inflicted a lot of pain on someone - just the look I was going for! And my makeup was actually very easy to do, I used a dark red lipstick along with some dark brown and black eyeshadow shades to add shaddowing. I added small veins to my face using a small lipstick brush and the same lipstick and drew random lines over my cheeks and forehead.
(All photos are taken on my phone - Samsung galaxy)

 (My boyfriend and I striking the typical zombie nurse/doctor pose)

(Me my boyfriend, and my Sister Vick and her boyfriend Rob - The zombie bride & groom and they looked amazing)

(My Sister and I)

At our friends house, they had dressed the house up brilliantly with decorations and cob webs everywhere, it really set the scene, we played Beer pong made spooky Halloween punch with jelly snakes and I also made a Halloween quiz which was a lot of fun!
Here are some photos of their house and gazebo: 

The house looked amazing, I love the effort they went to in decorating it all.
Also all my friends all spent time and effort to dress up - I think we all looked fab! There were witches, zombies, dead prom queens, dead snow white, dead dorothy, characters from a variety of Horror films, and my friend Cerri was dressed as a sugar skull! 

(Some of these photos were taken with a Selfie stick - great for when there is a group of you!)

All in all we had a great night - I LOVE HALLOWEEN
I urge anyone to have a Halloween party you will have so much fun - its great to see your friends dressed up too!
Now I am going to start planning my outfit for next year!
Don't have nightmares
