Bright and Pastels

This week I decided to do something different with my nails, I was getting tired of dark colours so this week I'm wearing bright and pastel colours, this combination would be perfect for summer and spring, it doesn't really go with the weather outside but it's spring/ summer somewhere :)
I bought shipwrecked by Leighton Denny last week and I had to wear it. Its a hard colour to explain, it a bit like pistachio ice cream but brighter, the formulation is incredible and a dream to apply. It's my new love, I can't wait for spring and summer, I'm pretty sure it wont come off my nails
As my ascent nails I'm wearing Apple candy mint, which I've done enough posts about it, so go check it out :)
Would you wear shipwrecked? Let me know in the comments below.

November Wish List

After 21 days without posting I feel very weird to start again, I'm sorry I have been such a terrible blogger but trying to figure out my new schedules and trying to fit everything in my day has been crazy. The work load is starting to pile up and I usually don't have much time to post in here, I haven't even been shopping since I went back to uni ( except for a cheeky on-line haul LOL!) 

So, since November is almost here I decided to share with all of you my make-up wish list.

My first two picks are Benefit Beauty Kits, I am a sucker for Benefit boxes and packaging so of course I had to include both of my favourites in here.
Number one is called go tropiCORAL and you can find it here, it is a beautiful box with Coralista blush, Coralista lipgloss, Cha Cha Tint and High Beam. I've always wanted to try Coralista blush and now Coralista lipgloss.
The second box is callled How To Look The Best At Everything - medium, I really want to try the new foundation and the primer, so I think this is a great way to experiment with them, you can get it from here.
The third item in my list is Well Rested by Bare Minerals, it has been on my list for a long time now, but I never end up buying it. I think it is great to set under eye concealer. here
Last but not least is a Butter London nail polish, I love wearing dark nail polish at this time of year and this one looks perfect for me, a bit of sparkles and it is dark. here.

Let me know in the comments below you November wish list.

NOTD: Red for Autumn

I've been seeing a lot o people wearing red this season, and this weekend I decided I wanted red and sparkles, so here are my choices: Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance and Orly Ruby.
The Orly nail polish is very creamy and super pigmented, takes a while to dry though. And Bad Romance however is not as pigmented and it definitely needs more than one coat, which I don't mind, the only thing I don't really like about this polish is that it is so hard to remove as every glittery nail polish.
I love this combination, and I am thinking about wearing it on Christmas.
What is your favourite red nail polish? Let me know in the comments below.

Top 3 blushes for autumn

As most of you probably know blushes are my favourite make-up item, so I decided to show you my 3 favourite blushes for autumn.

I like to wear darker blushes in the autumn, I don't really know why I just think it goes well with the crisp leaves and the cold weather.

(From top to bottom:Coral by Sleek Make-up, Early Morning by MAC, Sin By Nars)

My number one autumn blush is without a doubt NARS Sin, it looks amazing with a flawless base and darker lips, however I also like to wear it with nude lips. It is a purple/plum colour with gold shimmer.
My second autumn blush is Sleek Make-up in Coral, I think this blush is an all year round blush, looks great with a tan or with paler skin, as the name suggest is a coral colour and I think looks great with any skin colour. This blush has a matte finish.
And last but not least it is from a MAC Cosmetics limited edition and its called Early Morning, it is very similar to the Sleek Make-up one but I think this one is a bit darker and less coral,I think this shade is more neutral than Coral by Sleek Make-up, I don't really know how to explain this colour, it also has a matte finish.

What is your top 3 autumn blushes? Let me know in the comments below.

NOTD: Ski Teal We Drop by OPI + Unfor-Greta-bly Blue by OPI

First of all I need to apologize, this week was my first week back in University and I was struggling to get back to my routine.
So, both nail polish are amazing, the staying power is great, and both apply smoothly.
Unfor-Greta-Bly blue is from the Germany collection and as I said before I'm in love with this new collection.
Have you tried any nail polish from this collection? Would you wear blue nail polish?

Zara wish list: Autumn

I was shopping on line I came across the new collection from Zara and I fell in love, so I decided to show you my favourite pieces

1. I love wax looking jeans, but I didn't want to get the black ones because I see every one wearing them, so after I saw this dark green one I decided that it would be the one I would get. (£35.99)
2. I really want to get a floral/printed trousers but I don't know if I can pull it off, so this jeans is perfect, is is black on black so the details are not too bold and look very stylish. ( £39.99)

As always Zara's jackets are to die for, and I couldn't choose which one I like best so I'm showing you my two favourites.

3. Very structured jacket with an embellished lapel, the studs give it an edge look and because of it I love it even more. (£79.99)

4. This Jacket is my mom's favourite, I love that it is red, it can give the outfit an pop of colour still looking very chic. (£69.99)

What is your favourite piece from Zara this season? Let me know in the comments below

Monday Questionnaire

So, I haven't done a Monday Questionnaire in a while and I love reading this kind of posts. Once again I got the questions from amarixe's blog, I think her questionnaires are great! Also, today has been more like a chill stay at home day, so I decided to write something more casual.

1. Mood: 
Tired, last night I couldn't sleep properly and I was reading a book that I couldn't stop, so I ended up staying up until 5 am.
I'm also excited, I'm having dinner with some friends that I haven't seen in ages.

2.What is your favourite article of clothing to shop for? 
Hmm, this is hard, I love buying anything but I think if I could buy just one thing I would probably buy jackets/ blazers, or shoes!

3.Three hours ago I was... 
Walking around Waterstone trying to find the sequel of the book I'm currently reading

4. Current nail polish: 
Ski Teal We Drop by OPI + Unfor-greta-bly Blue by OPI (NOTD will be up on Friday)

5. When was the last time you read an actual newspaper (not digital)? 
I'm not sure, it's so much easier to read everything digitally nowadays, sometimes when I'm going to Central London, on the tube, I read some articles but usually I look it up on-line.

6. Current outfit:
Skinny jeans, white T-shirt and leather jacket. Need to change soon!

7. What is your natural hair texture? 
Flat, wavy/straight

8. Would you rather go a week without phone or a week without computer?
I would much prefer keep my phone, I can go on the internet and do what I need to do with my computer using my phone anyway.

9. What is your favourite musical?
It is either Rent or Mamma Mia or Grease, I can't decide!

10. Weekly goals: 
Enjoy my last free week

I would love to read all your answers, leave your answers down below or a link to your post.
