Mini Mac & Nars Haul

So a few days ago I went shopping for more sensible things such as clothes or shoes...what did I come away with? Yet more make up! However, I am not being too critical of myself as they were items that I have wanted for a long time, and bought with some birthday money, so my mini haul wasn't too naughty!

^ I picked up Mac's Eye Kohl in Teddy, Nars Single Eyeshadow in Cyprus, and Nars Cream Blush in Penny Lane.

^ Nars Eyeshadow in Cyprus. Cyprus has been described by some bloggers as 'the perfect neutral,' and that's exactly what it is. It is a lovely golden-beige shade that is perfect for the daytime as an all over wash colour, but can easily be paired with a darker crease colour for the nightime.

^ Mac's Eye Kohl in Teddy. A very pretty rich, golden brown shade that will make a softer change from black eyeliner.

^ Nars Cream Blusher in Penny Lane. This is GORGEOUS! It gives a beautiful dewy finish to the skin without making it look greasy. I wore this the other night and it just made my skin look as if it had a bit of a 'glow.'

More soon! xx

Nars Ondine Eyeshadow & Update

This week I got my A Level Results, the results of the exams you take when you are 17-18 in the UK in your final two years of school. I got an A* in English Literature, and As in Politics and Religious Studies. I am now off to read English Literature at university. This means that, for the first time ever, I will be living away from the comforts of home, semi-independent..! The university I am going to is over a three hour drive from where I live in London and about two hours on the train, so I will be a long way away from home. As you can imagine, this week has been rather eventful.

I need to buy lots of things for the big move, so am rather busy at the moment. However, I thought that I would share with you one of my current favourites - Nars Eyeshadow in Ondine. One of my friends bought this for my birthday and it is beautiful!

It is a lovely brown colour, with almost mauve undertones. I would say that it is not as cool a colour as Lola Lola. The quality and pigmentation of Nars eyeshadows is superb, so if you haven't already, I would definitely recommend you take a look at the Nars eyeshadow range!

More soon! xx

Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb

I have wanted Viktor & Rolf's original Flowerbomb perfume for years! For some reason, I can never bring myself to spend money on perfume, and tend to buy makeup or clothes instead. It's silly really, because perfume can be very special. I personally find that perfume, and certain scents in general, evoke memories. Perfume can remind you of a certain place, event, or time in your life where or in which you wore the scent.

So with this in mind, when one of my close friends asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I came up with this:

^ The pretty box!

^ The perfume, shower gel and moisturiser

About four of my close friends clubbed together to get this for my 18th. It was very sweet of them, and I adore the perfume! xx

Birthday Jewellery

Long time no post! Many apologies.

The other day, it was my 18th birthday. Unfortunately I was not able to hold a big celebration on the day as many of my friends were on holiday (the troubles of being an August baby...!) I will be doing some more birthday posts a little later on when I catch up with all my friends..

Today, however, I thought I would show you some jewellery that I was given by my best friend as birthday gifts.

^ This is the bracelet.

^ These are the earrings

They are both silver, and absolutely beautiful! I never spend money on jewellery, so it lovely that I now have some lovely items :) xx
