My Style Inspirations

Hi Dolls,

Hope you are all okay and having a good week so far, sorry for the lack of posts recently i have been in London for the weekend with the girlies, but i am back! :)
I have seen quite a few posts recently on bloggers style inspirations and icons so i thought i would show you some of mine.

Lauren Conrad ♥
Lauren Conrad is my number 1 style inspiration. I think she is completely stunning and always looks effortlesly amazing! She has always been my favourite hills cast member. She can dress up or down and always looks beautiful! I love the florals and blazer combo as it is quite casual yet super elegant! She also looks gorgeous in the skinny jeans & plaid shirt - amazing!
♥ Vanessa Hudgens ♥
Vanessa Hudgens is beautiful, ive loved her since the beginning of her HSM days and she always looks amazing, absolutely love her sense of style. She has made me lust after the balenciaga giant part time - it looks beautiful on her! Super jealous of her gorgeous hair also! & her boyfriend! :)

♥ Olivia Palermo ♥
Not one of my favourite cast members of The City, however she has amazing style! Although i would never be able to carry off her look, i think that Olivia is always dressed beautifully. I love the style of a dress, with tights and heels and her day time look is always so chic and elegant. She has such gorgeous hair which looks amazing in any style!

♥ Nicole Richie ♥
Nicole is beautiful, i love her style an she looks amazing no matter what she wears! Love the Louboutins & Chanel hand bag of course which accessorise her outfits beautifully!

♥ Coleen Rooney ♥
I think Coleen is stunning, she always looks gorgeous glammed up for a night out or with jeans and flats for through the day. Love the mix of louboutins and designer handbags. The dress above i actually do love, and think looks amazing with the blazer thrown over the top. She also has an amazing shoe & handbag collection :)
Who are your style inspirations or icons?

MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes, Lillyland & Mineralize Collections

Hi dolls!
Hope you are all okay!
Here is my small haul from the newest MAC collections!



'Florida' Cremeblend blush - Lillyland Collection £16.50 ♥
'Banshee' Eyeshadow - All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection £11♥
'So sweet, So Easy' Cremeblend blush - Lillyland Collection £16.50 ♥
130 Short Duo Fibre Brush £27 ♥
'Equality' Lipstick - All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection £12.50 ♥
Initial Thoughts

'Florida' Cremeblend blush - Gorgeous colour, looks bright in the pan but with a light hand, can be a nice, sheer flush of pink ♥
'Banshee' Eyeshadow - Love this, a lustre finish so one of my favourites ♥
'So sweet, So Easy' Cremeblend blush - So glad i bought this as it sold out the day after i ordered, gorgeous, baby pink ♥
130 Short Duo Fibre Brush - This was an impulse buy, but im glad i decided on picking this up! As you know i love my brushes, and this is a great asset to my collection. A lot shorter, and dense than the 187 - perfect for cream blushes ♥
'Equality' Lipstick - My favourite of the whole collections, i love this! Such a gorgeous sheer, nude & perfect for everyday! If you love your nudes and dont own this, please pick it up! :) ♥
Brush Comparison

♥ 187 Duo Fibre Brush ♥
♥ 188 Duo Fibre Brush ♥
♥ 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush ♥
As you can see the handle of the 130 brush is around the same length as the 187, maybe a little bit longer & thicker than the 188.
The fibres of the 130 are approxiately half the length of the 187, and a lot denser and more compact so not as suited to stippling as the 187 and 188. The 130 however, would be perfect for buffing in products.
Did you buy any products from the new collections? If so, What are your thoughts?

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette

I am one of the lucky people to have the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette in the U.K.
As you may know the UK release date for this palette is the 22nd of February online at Debenhams and it will be instore at Debenhams only from the 28th February.
I received my palette last week from a gorgeous lady in the US, i did a custom purchase for her before christmas and i asked if she would do the same for me so thank you so much Diane!
It cost $52 which i think is equivilant to £30 ish and its going to retail for £28 in the UK.

Some people have said that a few of the colours are repromotes from other palettes but as i dont own any of the Urban Decay Book of Shadows & love all things disney this palette is perfect for me!







I absolutely love it, it is super quite and im glad i have had the opportunity to own this!
Will you be picking up the Alice in Wonderland palette or will you be giving it a miss?

Review: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor



I have been using Aussie products for years, my mum swears by them so we always have a constant supply in our household.

One product i love is the Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor which is a 3 minute conditioner that works as a hair treatment.

I kindly received a small bottle of this in my goodie bag from the Aussie night out, which i was thrilled about as i absolutely love this product!

Out of all of the Aussie products this has to be my absolute fave! It smells absolutely gorgeous! & it is such a longlasting smell that still lingers on your hair once its dry!

I use this as my conditioner not aswell as and only need a small 50p amount whereas usually i need a full handful of conditioner as my hair is so long and thick.

I love the consistency of this, it is so thick but covers really well.

From the minute you are washing this product off your hair you can feel the difference, my hair can sometimes still feel quite tangled even after conditioner but this feels amazing!

Once dry, my hair smells amazing and feels so sleek & shiny!

I absolutely love it & would recommend to all!

It retails for £4.49 but can usually be found on offer in
Boots and Superdrug.

So ladies, have you tried this product?
