NYC Haul!

Hey guys! So I have just returned from the most amazing week in New York City with my best friend and it probably goes without saying that I spent A LOT of time and dolla in Sephora (HELLO SEPHORA WHY OH WHY ARE YOU STILL NOT IN THE UK!?!). So I thought I would show you guys what I picked up. I will do full reviews of these once they are tried and tested!


I'll start with products I use every day, that I picked up for when my current ones run out. Why not eh? So much cheaper over there.



MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH - MEDIUM
My everyday powder.


NARS BRONZER - LAGUNA
My go to bronzer for the last 4 years.
Beautiful!



Then I picked up some new goodies for myself. Everyone needs a treat now and again right?!






NARS DUO EYESHADOW CHRISTOPHER KANE - PARALLEL UNIVERSE
IN LOVE. First thing that caught my eye and I knew I had to have this beautiful duo. How cute is the pink Nars writing as well?



NARS EYESHADOW DUO - KALAHARI
I cannot wait to play with this. So beautiful and so pigmented.
Feel like this will be perfect for travelling!





MAC LIPSTICKS - PINK PIGEON & VELVET TEDDY
I have been after these two for months. So pretty.
They were already cheaper over there than they are here and then I got my pro discount on top. Result!



TOO FACED MELTED LIPSTICK - MELTED MARSHMALLOW
I have wanted one of these since they first hopped on the scene but I knew they were so much cheaper in the states. (cheapsake alert).
Could have bought every colour but I feel like this will be perfect for summer.



ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS DIPBROW - CHOCOLATE.
So obviously I couldn't go to the states without picking up something from Anastasia Beverly Hills! & I just had to go for the cult product. So excited to use this.
BROWS ON FLEEEEEK!



So guys that is all the beauty stuff I picked up in the Big Apple! I am so excited to play with everything and let you guys know what I think. Also so proud of myself because I could have went a lot crazier! Do you guys have any of these products? What do you think of them?
Let us know!



Until next time, 
lots of love,

My Met Gala 2015 Faves!

Hey all! So apologies once again for being a massive slacker in April. Won't happen this month! 

I thought I would get back into the swing of things with a post on one of my favourite celeb events of the year. The Met Gala! Here are my favourite looks from this year's Chinese themed Gala.




BEYONCE

DUH. Lets start with Queen B. I know this dress has been a little controversial. People are either loving it or hating it. Can I just say that if I had Beyonce's body, I would wear this to ASDA! I know its a little risque but if you can't rock this gorgeous Givenchy dress at the Met Gala when can you? 10/10 for me.



KATE HUDSON

I simply adore this dress. OOFT! I have my university graduation ball in June and I wish I was bezzies with our Kate so she could let me borrow it! The gold glittery Michael Kors gown is a piece from heaven in my opinion. The slightly high neck just adds to the glamour. Kate Hudson can do no wrong on the red carpet.



SELENA GOMEZ

Gotta keep an eye out for Selenerrrrrrr! 
This Vera Wang dress is my perfect wedding dress shape. & if I was bold enough my absolute perfect wedding dress full stop. It is so simply elegant and beautiful. I fell like Selena's look has been a little overlooked but I am so in love with it. She looks stunning.
& her flower head garland just adds to the Chinese theme, making her met winner for me!



KENDALL JENNER

This glittery emerald dress goes absolutely beautiful with Kendall's skintone, eyes and hair colour. It really is a beautiful colour on her. I am insane about those tied up sides. If you know me then you will know my going out outfits are mainly sideless. Even my prom dress four years ago was sideless! I just think it adds something extra without having to show an insane amount of skin like stomach and legs. Adore this Calvin Klein look.



JENNIFER LOPEZ

Definitely not looking like a casual Jenny from the Block here! JLo is the only insanely perfect human being that could pull of this ensemble. Which was custom designed for JLo by Donatella Versace herself. The red is absolutely stunning on Jennifer's Latino skintone and the shape of the dress is perfect for her figure. The minimum accessories and slick back hair just complete the look. LOVE.



So thats my favourite look from this year's Met Gala!
What were your favourites? Let us know!
Until next time!
