* Superdrug Saturday Goodies! Accessorize & Collection 2000 *

Hi Girlies!

Yesterday I had to pop into town for a few bits and bobs, and to celebrate getting a full pay slip rather than half a month (I started my new job mid way through, only technically working 2 weeks in October), I decided to indulge in the Superdrug 3 for 2 offer! If you have been under a rock and havent heard about this, you can mix and match across ALL brands - how good is that! 

Our teeny tiny store, miraculously, stocks Accessorize makeup! I think its replaced the mini Bourjois stand?

These are the goodies I picked up:

Accessorize Merged Eyeshadow in Cocoa, £4.50

How pretty is this colour?! I love it! 
Its a browny, mauve, purply mix up. I had to have it the second I swatched it!

Next up, Collection 2000 Extreme 24hour Felt Tip Liner, £2.99, Teal.

I had swatched these in store before, but due to No-Spend-November (Which, incidentally, I broke due to being paid :) ) I did not indulge. I felt 3 for 2 was the perfect excuse!

And, last but not least, Accessorize Illusion Nail Polish.
Purple Passion - £4.00

This is the most gorgeous glittery purple - its FULL of glitter, which is always a winner in my books! 
This was in a little section away from the other polishes - part of the Illusion range - a collection of glittery lovelies! I shall feature this in a nails of the weekend post soon :)

At the tills, I also picked up this Mini Nail Polish remover - only 79p!
This is a perfect size for travelling and weekends away! Here it is in a couple of pictures so you can see the size!

(Please excuse crap 2nd attempt at nail art and swatches on my finger!)

Has anyone else indulged in the 3 for 2 this week?

* On another note, i'd like to say THANKYOU to my 100 followers! I cant believe theres 1 let alone 100 that follow my little old blog! There maybe a little giveaway in the pipeline, but only a small one as im still skint and have Christmas pressies to buy! It may feature a certain brand that begins with an M? *

NOTW * Nails Inc & an attempt at nail art!

Hi Snowangels!

I do hope youre enjoying the snow as much as I am! Although, from twitter, there seems to be a mixed reaction haha!

I thought I would show you my Nails of the Weekend today! And also my very teeny tiny attempt at nail art (I say nail art, in fact, itys ome dots on my nails, but weve all gotta start somewhere hehe!)

I started off with my Nails Inc Jermyn Street, which im sure most of you have courtesy of Glamour! 

I then used some George nail polish in  Mocca Ice to add a sprinkling of gold dots to the corner of each nail!
My novice attempt seemed to come out ok! I even got some compliments on them! :)

I am in awe of bloggers who can do proper nail art (One who springs to mind is Dottie K, check out her leopard print nails on her blog! And also Sophie-Lou-J - shes fab as well! See her blog here!) I dont have a steady left hand, and ALWAYS mess up! Im thinking of investing in a Models Own nail art pen to see if that helps!

Do you attempt nail art? Do you have any tips I can use to make my paltry attempts better?!

30 Things I want to do tag :)

Afternoon Lovelies!

Seeing as im tucked up in bed (STILL) all germy and yukky and tonsilly, I thought i'd entertain myself with a Tag I found whilst reading the Christina Marie Says.. blog!

All you have to do is list down 30 things you'd like to wish for, however big or small - I love reading these type of things! Some are more worthwhile things id like to do, ie about life, family, whereas others are about makeup and clothes, haha! So please dont judge ;)

So here goes, here are my 30 little self indulgent wishes! I would like to...

1: Complete the sale of the house were trying to buy - weve been plagued with bad luck so far :(

2: Make a snowman again this winter - I love love love the snow!! And by this I mean proper snow, not the poncey sprinkle of dust. I want big, thick, fluffy, casues chaos snow!! hehe!

3: Visit New York - properly! Ive stopped at Newark, NJ and saw NY in the hazy evening distance, but i'd love to visit there next!

4: Book our wedding date! Although the house needs to come first :( We want to go to Mexico! Hot hot!!

5: Reach 100 followers by my birthday! Which is coming up rather quickly, oh my!

6:  Go to Glastobury Fest! Ive been to Reading before, next is Glasto!

7: Own some glittery nail polish, e.g. Models Own or Nails Inc! (These are on the Christmas/Birthday List!!)

8: Go Christmas Shopping In London! I love the shops, the lights, the magical feel...sigh!

9: Develop an ability to keep my room tidy.

10: Someday, own a walk in closet, where my clothes will not be squished together, therefore not needing an iron before every wear!

11: Have clear skin! Although Clinique is helping me along :)

12: Finish my Jill Mansell book collection! (Geek, I know! haha)

13: Meet Marian Keyes the authour - I love her! I own every single one of her books!

15: Finish a lipstick or ligloss - I dont think I ever have!

16: Have my family home from America for good - my big sis, brother in law and nephews (not just for Christmas, I miss them too much :( )

17: Get my own cat when I move out - im not allowed to take our two family cats!

18 Specifically, get a Snowshoe Cat! Check out this post from The Roxy Loves to see what one looks like! George the kitten is so lush!

19: Buy either the UD Naked Palette or Start a MAC pallette!

20: Buy a one shoulder dress from either Newlook or Topshop!

21: Visit the Maldives - Oh my word it looks AMAZING! A private cabin, on the end of  a jetty, clear blue seas? YES please.

22: Dye my hair brown - ive been blonde for about 8 years!!

23: Be hospital free - ive not had a 'hospital visit free' year EVER! I just want to be ok! The latest is down to eardrum problems related to my other stuff!

24: Learn to make a good curry or chinese meal! Ive got the recepie books, I just cannot be bothered to cook it, haha!

25: Purchase some more MAC lippies - I feel like I need more in my life!

26: Find a miracle nail polish that does not chip!! No matter what I do, it chips. Annoying, no?

27: Pluck up the courage to tell my boy about my blog ;)

28: Buy some Aussie hair products - Ive tried the 3 minuit mircale and it smells lush! I want more!

29: Go on a shopping spree for, ahem, myself, in Lush! I want so much stuff from there! Plus my bathroom would smell AMAZE. Thats a good enough reason, yes?

30: Have an immune system boost! I get ill ALL the time. And I hate the doctors, they get everything wrong, it always takes two trips to get something sorted. Mini rant over, ha!

Feel free to do this, im aware this is quite long, so apologies there! Let me know if youve done it on your blog :)

This picture totally made me smile! I found it when I looked for "Wish" on weheartit! 

Lots of germy love, Daisy x

MAC Wintersky - Blogsale Purchase!

Aloha Ladies!

Im tucked up at home in my pjs thanks to tonsilitus and an ear infection, so I thought i'd write a blog post with the pics of my newest purchase that have been lurking on my laptop for a while!

 This afternoon im sharing my latest blog sale purchase from a couple of weeks ago (It was in October, so No-Spend-November as mentioned in the previous post was not affected! ;) )

This lovely little chap is Wintersky - a MAC velux pearl eyeshadow from the Chill Collection from a while ago. Isnt it lovely! Its also my very first MAC shadow! :D

I dont normally wear pinks, but this I somehow couldnt resist!

From the picture above, you can see that the colour is less pigmented on skin than in the pan, which is what attracted me to this colour - its buildable and gives a lovely shimmery frost look (It is a teeny bit pinker in real life though, silly camera!) It has also convinced me to step away from my usual taupe and browny colours!

I hope you like my newest addition! Has anyone else got this colour?

NOTD! Sleek Oxford Nailed Polish.

Hi Bloggers!

Ive been such a bad blogger recently! This is mainly down to a few things!

1- Work work work - working with children with special needs is quite tiring - my class are quiet young, and therefore lively, making me a sleepy girl by the time ive got home!

2- Trying to buy a house - Ive spent more time researching new things for a house rather than blogging! (if the flipping sellers decide to accept our offer! Gahh!)

3- Embarking on a No-Spend-November - im skint and have Christmas to pay for soon! (Plus a potential mortage!) I have been very good this month and only bought Glamour for the Nails Inc!

So, seeing as I havent got anything new to share, I thought id revisit some of my nailpolish collection!

Last weekend, it was the turn of Sleek's Oxford polish - a metallic navy blue.

I remembered only wearing it once before, so I felt it ought to come out and convince me it was worthy of being worn again.
This is one coat on the nails with a topcoat- I painted them Friday night, and these pics were taken Saturday morning.

The colour is quite nice, and strong for only one coat. The downside is that it chipped really badly, even with a topcoat, reminding me why it had been banished to the back of my collection (If you look closly the chips are appear in the pictures after an evenings wear!). Its also a nightmare to get off!!

Has anyone found any negatives with Sleek nailpolish as well? Its definately put me off purchasing any others from their range!
