Where I Keep Things and Faves :)

Bit of a different style of post today, basically letting all of you know where i keep my stuff and some of my fave things in the world.


I'm a bit of a nail varnish hoarder! And keep my vast collection of my window ledge... I know this is going to sound tragic but to avoid sun damage I always put a scarf over them when it's sunny outside! In fact throughout the summer months i tend to pop them on my bookcase.

As you can see Model's Own tends to be my brand of choice :) 

Here are 3 of my all time fave polishes.

The first is Nails Inc Paddington Street which is a fab shade for this time of year, you can buy this in this fab gift set for just £20 which includes 3 other colours. Its available from the beauty bay here.
Second up is a Barry M polish in Silvery Lilac, i like Barry M and always tend to pick a few up when they're on 3 for 2 which they always seem to be! Treat yourself with the weekly shop and pick it on from Tesco online here for just £2.99
Finally is a polish i picked up in the half price models own sale and though it's very summery i'm totally in love with it. The shade is Jade stone and is available here for a fiver :)

Make Up

Before last week my make up collection was a bit of a mess, until the make up artist style carry case entered my life that is!!!

Some of my fave make up products are as below.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is currently my fave foundation, though it is heavy and I do tend to use a cheapo 17 one during the day for a lighter look. It's pretty good value at £24.50, i buy the shade Warm Me Toasted as i'm quite pale :) You can pick up this product here.

And here are the best of the rest...
Naked Palette - I am still reveling in this absolute bargain - i picked this up for just £21 in the Jet2 end of season sale!! I'm afraid that if you're not flying Jet2 in the next couple of weeks it's going to set you back £36 but is worth every penny. I have used this product every day since buying it and really don't think i'll ever need to buy another eye shadow set. (Just to clarify i will i just won't need to).

You can buy NAKED from Debenhems here.

Next up is my fave blusher which is one i actually only use in the evenings as it's way to heavy for the day. I buy the MAC cremeblush blend in Posey for £17.50 as you can see from the picture this product is running very very low but i have had it since January so and used it on most night's out so it's lasted pretty well. You can buy this here.

Sugarlicious is one of Benefits lip and cheek kits and it ideal for throwing into your handbag as it contains some of my fave benefit products in travel sized bottles and a mirror!!! The sugarbomb blusher is a perfect day time blusher when you want a naturalish look. You can buy this here for £24.50

Next up is my eyeliner of choice- I have hundreds of eyeliners, gel, liquid, pencil, you name it and i've probably tried it at some point but i keep going back to the Mac Powerpoint eye pencil in black obviously! There is a really nice metalically shimmer to it and it looks great when doing a smokey eye. You can buy this for £14.50 here.
I blogged about the recent Cargo makeup stand closing down in Boots and how i picked up a 30 quid mascara for just under 7, i'm obsessed with this mascara which is the lash activator triple action but have no idea where i'm going to get another one from, if anyone knows i will be eternally grateful :)

Finally is my current fave lipstick which is only a cheapy but I love it. It's one of the Kate Moss rimmel ones in shade 12 which is a fab orangey red shade :) You can buy this for just £5.49 here

 I was also going to blog about my jewellery storage but realize I've blabbed on enough for today :)
