Sparkly Chai

I am a frequent wearer of the Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Chai, but when it came to wanting to paint my nails with it again, I wanted to add a bit more pizzazz. So I opted for using is as an accent on my thumb and ring finger and then using Barry M Silver/Multi Glitter on the rest. 

To be honest, when I first did them I wasn't a fan, but they are grew on me and I love them more and more each day. They're something different to my usual choice in colour and they go with everything.

Everyone should know by now that I am a Barry M fan, they take up most of my collection, so it is no surprise that I am loving this combo. They both applied smoothly and have a great finish. However, the glitter was a little thick and messy, so I ended up with it all on my hands. But the mess was worth it.

What Barry M shades have you tried?

Candle Corner #11 - Yankee Candle Sweet Apple

This post is going to be focused on the Yankee Candle Sweet Apple votive, which smells amazing! To me it smells like a pink lady apple that has just been bitten into and is a very fresh, crisp apple scent. Not really one for autumn and winter, but I loved it too much not to buy it.

I really like the votive sized candles as they are the perfect size candle and don't come with a hefty jar. Also, it burns for apporximately 15 hours, so it won't run out super quick.

Have you tried this scent? Are you happy candle corner is back?

Collective Haul - The Works, Body Shop & H&M

One weekend, I decided to go shopping with one of my friends as I hadn't seen them in over a month. I planned on buying some clothes for college as I have nothing for winter, but ended up coming home with a bunch of really random items. 

Firstly, I bought a pair of heeled boots from New Look for £39.99. I bought these the day before the shopping trip, but I thought I would include them in this haul anyway. They are real leather with a 2.5" heel and a gold zip detail as well as a zip fastening.

Back onto the shopping trip, I bought a pack of four silver circle earrings from H&M for £3.99. In the pack there are a set of black, burgundy, pale pink and pale grey earrings which I love. I have a pair of white square studs from Accesorize (I think) and I love them, so when I say these I immediately wanted them.

I then went into The Body Shop because whats a shopping trip without going to Body Shop? I only bought products from the sale section as nothing else tickled my fancy. I got the early-harvest raspberry eau de toilette for £4.50 instead of £8.50 and the sweet lemon shower gel for £3 instead of £4. The raspberry eau de toilette smells like candyfloss and the berry gummy haribo sweets which I love. I already own the brazil nut version of this and I wanted more scents so I got this one. The lemon shower gel smells like lemon washing liquid and lemon sweets which I really like, even though it sounds weird.

Finally, I got the Divergent book trilogy which was reduced from £24 to £10. I was never bothered by the Divergent books or films until in the summer when I watched the two films that are currently out. I absolutely fell in love with them and thought they had such a gripping story line. So when I saw the books in The Works I had to get them.

Have you bought anything recently?

Candle Corner #10 - Another Candle Haul

I have yet another candle haul for you all, but it is only small... I recently went to Media City UK in Salford for a college trip and whilst there we were given two hours free time, so me and my friends went to the nearby shopping centre. I was so excited that they had a Yankee Candle shop and I ended up buying three of the votives.
I didn't know which scents I wanted, so I picked up every candle that sounded appealing and gave them a quick sniff. I ended up buying Snowflake Cookie, Vanilla Cupcake and Vanilla Lime. They all smell amazing and I would recommend you going into a Yankee shop near you and giving them a quick sniff.
