November Beauty Wishlist

Mac Brush Cleanser | NARS, Limited Edition Hardwire Liptick, Shade Deadly CatchRimmel London's Wake Me Up concealer | Urban Decays' Naked 3 PaletteHoney by Marc Jacobs | Ted Baker Cream Montone Large Pv Bow Washbag | Fishnet Stockings by Essie | O.P.I Gwen Holiday Collection, Just BeClause

So this month's beauty wishlist isn't as hefty as usual, still a pretty good pick though don't ya think? This first item is something i've been seeing all over the blogospehere lately and I think i'm going to pop into town on my lunch break tomorrow and snap it up. It's Mac's brush cleanser. Apparently it cleans with ease and leaves your make up brushes like new! You can grab it online at Selfridges for £11.

Hello the most glamorous lipstick you've ever seen! This lippy is part of Nars' new limited edition Hardwire collection. I believe there are two other shades available, but this is hands down, beautiful! Perfect for the festive season, ho ho ho! Unfortunately I can't find it on a UK/European website so I don't know when or where it's going to be available, sorry! If you do know, let me know below!  

I'm sure you've all heard of Rimmel London's Wake Me Up concealer, pretty much every beauty blogger/vlogger has voiced their opinion on it at some point or another. I'm currently using the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and don't get me wrong, I love it, but i'm starting to lean towards more dewy concealers, I just think they highlight so much nicer wow fantastic use of words! Currently available at Boots for £5.49. 

I'm not even going to write anything about this next product because I talk about it all the time. Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette is avaliable from Debenhams for £37, go ooooon, treat yourself! 

Who else is sort of obsessed with the scent of Honey by Marc Jacob's  perfume? Raise your hands! It's certainly more of a summer scent but who's gonna stop me bending the rules a little bit? You can buy a 50ml bottle from Boots for £49.50 but if you're reading this from Gibraltar, Seruya probably have it at a slightly lower price, get bargain hunting! 

How gorgeous are Ted Baker's make up bags?! I think this make up bag has been on a wishlist before but... just look how beautiful it is! You can bag it right here for £28.99!

Last but not least we have these two super festive nail polishes! The first is "Fishnet Stockings" by Essie. It's such a perfect deep red shade for this time of year! The other polish is from O.P.I from their Gwen Holiday Collection and it's called Just BeCluase, their shade name's are always on point! Another festive colour, I need to get my claws on this luxurious, deep purple. PS, I highly suggest clicking through and checking out the names of all the shades in this collection, they're pure brilliance! 

So there we have it, November's beauty wishlist! How is it already the 12th of November? This year's flow by! What are you lusting over this month? Let me know!

Can You Hear The Silence | OOTD

Dress - Dorothy Perkins(similar) | Jacket - Bershka | Boots - Primark

If you've been reading my little blog for a while now, you'll remember this post where I picked up this beautiful smock dress up from good ol' Dotty P's for £6.50! I promised i'd re style it for winter so here we are! Also, holla at these totes amazeballs poses.... 

I snatched up this jacket in Berska a couple of weeks ago whilst visiting Portugal. I was filtering through the usual rubbish you find on a sale rail and dear lord I think I did a little dance when I found this baby! I was a bit strapped for cash so I decided to have a wonder round the other stores just in case I found anything a little cheaper, although I can't complain, I think it was abut £25! But of course, when I decided to give in and go back to grab it, it had gone. Luckily enough, the next day we visited another city that also had a Bershka and I found my jacket, woohoo! The panic was over!

You can't see it too well in these photo's but the jacket has a little grey hood that's actually detachable, but I think it's a super cute accessory for your pretty much standard pleather jacket, don't ya think?

I really think this smock dress works so well with the jacket and Chelsea boots combo! These puppies are actually from Primark! I've worn them a couple of times now and they're still in fabulous condition. The rubber and imitation leather material used is quite thick so I think they'll do me for the rest of the season, at least! They cost me 15 which is around £12, bargain!

So what do you think of this look? Love it, or leave it? Let me know below! P.S, the Bershka jacket is still on sale! P.P.S, you get 10 points if you know where the title of this post is from

Quote of the Week | #48

"Beauty Begins the moment you decide to be yourself" - Coco Chanel

So I'm going to talk about something that's been sort of a hot topic on the internet lately. That being natural beauty. As i've mentioned in the past, i've always struggled with my self image, as I know most men and women do at some point in their life.

I think the most important message I want to get across in this post is not to compare yourself to others, especially celebrities. It's so easy to compare yourself to someone you don't really know and someone that you only see parts of their life via the papers/the internet etc. Nobody is perfect, but we all have the power to find the beauty within ourselves. 

I love make up, if you didn't know that by now then, you've clearly just been looking at the pictures and not reading the posts, op. I can hold my hands up high and say that I have hidden behind my make up for years and some days, I still do. Fortunately, i've realised that I can have no make up days and still feel comfortable! Sometime when i'm feeling comfortable, i'll still choose to put make up on because I enjoy doing so, that's what make up should be used for. Because you want to, not to hide behind. 

Don't let anyone change who you really are, especially the media. Keep smiling
