Life: My Autumn/Christmas Wishlist...

I know it's not even October but what else am I supposed to do on my week off?? Friends and family take note. Here is the small selection of lovely goodies that I'd like for Christmas. I don't think for one minute that I'll get any of these things but it's fun to look!!


Gold bracelet watch from ASOS. All of my jewellery is platinum or white gold but sometimes it's nice to have a little bit of yellow gold to go with certain outfits...


ASOS Skinny Bow Belt. Brown is a classic colour and anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with bows...

Dune Muckyily Wedding Clutch.  I know this is an odd one to ask for as a Christmas present but as we're having a very pared down ceremony I'd like to keep things cheap and cheerful...and if that means asking for wedding accessories as Christmas and birthday presents then so be it!


Some slightly innapropriate but gorgeous shoes...possibly for the wedding (Kurt Geiger Imogene Shoes).

That's all for non...well, untill I have another day off to trawl shopping sites that is.


Haul: MAC Bargains at Cheshire Oaks

Last Saturday we ventured to Cheshire Oaks, which is a McArthur Glen Outlet in Cheshire. Little did I know they had a cosmetics discount store.

Usually these stores are filled with 'famous' brands you've never heard of but the boy spotted MAC goodies at the back....a lot of goodies!

I could have happily bought one of everything but with saving for the wedding in mind I got a quite restrained haul. Both items were from the Christmas 2009 collection, which sold out at both of my MAC counters before December 25th.

I got the Intriguing Scarlet Palette in 6 warm eyes and the Love's Divine Lash Kit.

The palette is a gorgeous mix of autumnal colours with a minature 213 brush.

The lash kit was a much listed after kit at the time for one reason...the Reflects Glitter in Transparent Teal. All of the MAC MUA's were wearing this all through December and it looked gorgeous.

The kit includes a full size Penultimate Liner in black (another much lusted after product and loving this!), a minature Zoom Lash, lashes in number 7 and the reflects glitter.

All in all a good haul and it was less than £40 for both.

Nails: Rimmel Grey Matter

I love grey nail polish...
I hate waiting for nail polish to dry...

So, despite having no money until pay day, I just picked up 'Grey Matter' from Rimmel's new colour collection from Superdrug for £3.49. Bargain!

Here is two coats with no base or top coat...

Nails: Ring finger roulette

After just buying a new leopard print jumper from H&M I thought I'd break out the OPI You don't know jacques and Mac's Glacier on the ring finger. What do you think?x

Review: American Apparel Nail Laquer Coney Island

Just nipped out to get some Sunday roast ingredients and had to have a peek in American Apparel to see what the nail laquers were like in real life.

I thought the colour selection was great for a first collection including some darks, brights, nudes and muddy colours that seem to be everywhere at the moment.

I went for a pastel baby pink cream. I haven't got a colour like thus in my collection and judging by the photos on the AA site the colour looked pretty opaque. The colour is called Coney Island. Here it is after two coats...

Perfect pastel pink to go with all of the grey this AW10.

Have you tried these laquers yet? Link to your blog/photos below x
