eBay wishlist #2

1/ Womens white cutout T bar shoes - £8.99
These are just super cute and would look so pretty with a summer dress. I love the school girl style of them!

2/ Etude House Etionette crystal shine lipstick - £2.16
These usually retail for £8 so this is an absolute bargain! 

3/ Harry Potter Deathly Hallows necklace - 99p
A must have for any Potter fan!

4/ Acrylic makeup storage drawers - £10.49
Ive had my eye on muji storage drawers for a while, my collection keeps growing and I'm running out of places to store it all. I came across these ones on ebay, they look pretty spacious and very similar to muji, however they're only a fraction of the price! Heard some really good reviews about these.

5/ Owl Mug - £7.49
I'm moving back to Uni in September and would love this for my new kitchen, its just so cute!!
6/ Lilac Heeled Jelly Shoes - £7.99
Never thought I would say this but I've fallen for the jelly shoe craze! These lilac ones are gorgeous and I'm definitely going to be buying some for my hols in October!

Thanks for reading! Would love to see you eBay wishlist post if you have one :)

Mobile Madhouse Leather iPhone Case

Ever since buying an iPhone and realising that there is literally a million different designs to choose from, I've developed a little bit of an obsession with phone cases. The only case I didn't have in my collection was a sensible one. By that I mean one that actually protects my phone instead of just looking pretty.
So when the lovely people over at asked for bloggers to review their products I thought I'd use it as an opportunity to get one. After having a look around on their site I ended up choosing the black leather effect wallet case*

iPhone 4S black leather effect wallet case* - £5.90
I chose this case because it protects both the front and the back of the phone and I also LOVE the handy card pockets. I can use this on a night out and have my ID and bank card nice and safe in those pockets. I also really like the feel of the faux leather, its really soft and not cheap looking in the slightest.

All in all this is a really great case and I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it! I'm considering going back and buying the same one in a lighter colour for the summer.

Mobile Madhouse also stock cases for other phones and even some tablets! They also offer free UK delivery on all orders.

What do you think of my 'sensible case'?
Thanks for reading!

Kukee Jewellery

Just before Christmas I entered a giveaway on twitter by a company called Kukee and I won a £5 voucher to spend on their website. I have actually ordered from Kukee before (post here) and loved the fact that their products were such good quality but cheap at the same time, so of course I was chuffed when I won. 

There was one item that really stood out to me and I knew I had to have them as soon as I saw them. It was these adorable 'I love you to the moon and back' bangles (sold out but similar here). I just think they are so cute and understated and I have had loads of compliments from friends.
'I love you to the moon and back' bangles - £6 (sold out but similar here)
And secondly I got these Art Deco style earrings (also sold out). I think they're so sweet, and completely different to anything I'd usually wear. I've worn these almost every day since they arrived, they go with every outfit! 

Art Deco Square Earrings - £1.50 (sold out)

Kukee currently have an offer on their site where everything is £2.50 or under, how good is that!?

Would love to read some jewellery posts so please leave a link below if you have posted any!
Happy Sunday!

eBay Wishlist #1

eBay wishlist #1

Watch || Pumps || T-Shirt || Boots || Bag

I have definitely jumped on the bandwagon in doing an 'eBay wishlist' post, however eBay is usually the first place I look when I need a new outfit, and my saved list is at least 3 miles long (you think I'm kidding!). At the minute I'm trying to look for more spring/summery items as my wardrobe is over run with black and navy. 

1. Cat face watch £1.85 -  I will admit, I fit into the stereotype of every other blogger in the fact that I LOVE cats. I just think they're so cute, and this cat face watch is just me all over.
2. Converse Style Pumps £7.99 - Converse are my go to footwear in the summer. I just think they go with every outfit, even a pretty summer dress. I bought some real ones last year for around £35 and they just about lasted me through the summer. This year I decided I'd just go for an unbranded pair and save myself £20+.
3. Labyrinth t-shirt £19.99 - Anybody who read my last post (here) knows how much of a Labyrinth fan I am, so when I came across this on eBay it went straight into my watch list! 
4. Heeled Biker Boots £22.99 - I do already own 3 pairs of black ankle boots, I think I'm obsessed. Now I definitely don't need these but I think they look so much more expensive than their price tag! I think they would look good again in the summer with a floral dress just to grunge it up a bit!
5. Pink Bag £20.99 - I just think this bag is gorgeous, such a pretty summer colour and the style of it reminds me somewhat of the Zara City Office bag! I will almost definitely be snapping this up very soon!

I hope you enjoyed my first eBay wishlist post and thank you for reading!

Whats in my make up bag - January 2014 // You remind me of the babe.

Now I'll be the first to admit I have far too many make up bags, however I didn't have one with my favourite scene from my favourite film on it ... until now! I found this offer on Reddit actually, which definitely isn't the usual place to find beauty bargains. The offer was from and you could pick any image you liked and have it printed on to a make up bag and shipped to your door for for a fab 99p! 
I don't know how many of you will actually recognise this film, so for those of you who don't its 'Labyrinth' which is a fantasy musical puppet film (I don't even know how to explain it) featuring the AMAZING David Bowie who also wrote and sang the entire soundtrack (and wears exceptionally tight trousers). It's just a brilliant film and for those of you who have children, it's very child friendly and my sister and me absolutely loved it when we were little. 
Whilst I was showing you my make up bag I thought I'd kill two birds and show you what I keep inside it on a daily basis. I'm thinking about posting one of these every month to show you guys what I'm using, kind of like a favourites post.
Onto the actual post anyway, goodness I ramble! 

Apologies for the swipe marks on my desk, I had just cleaned it :)


1// Barbara Daly Blusher Brush  2// The Vintage Cosmetic Company Powder Brush*  3// Real Techniques Stippling Brush  4// Unbranded Eyeshadow Brush
I have a LOT more brushes than these four but these are the ones that come with me on a day to day basis. The stippling brush is brilliant for if you're out and about and need to touch up your foundation as it means there's no need to get your fingers full of foundation. The powder brush is also a life saver for when Its a hot day and I need to mattify my face.


1// Sleek Blush in Rose Gold  2// Collection 2000 Pressed Powder in Ivory  3// Technic High Lights  4// MUA Undress Your Skin Foundation  5// Collection 2000 Concealer  6// Laura Mercier Primer
It was kind of hard to decide which products to feature in this part of the post as I change my face make up round a lot. I have 3 or so foundations that I like to switch around and a few highlighters that I use on a regular basis, but I chose these ones as they are probably the ones reach for the most when doing an 'everyday' look (e.g what I'd wear to uni). 
I bought the MUA foundation kind of on a whim and I have to say it's one of the best foundations I've ever used, and I'm not sure if I want to repurchase my beloved Barbara Daly foundation after using this one!


1// HD Brows Palette in Foxy  2// H&M Nudes Palette  3// Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara  4// Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
These are my go to eye products, especially if I'm in a rush. I love the H&M palette and tend to use the darkest shade the most as it has a lovely shimmer running through it and is very highly pigmented unlike a couple of the lighter shades. 
The HD Brows palette is just a life saver, I was actually sent this as part of a Christmas swap I did with another lovely blogger, and my goodness I don't know how I've ever lived without it ;) (just kidding) but it has really transformed my brows and makes them so much easier to do in a morning.


1// Maybelline Babylips in Peach Kiss  2// Collection 200 Cream Puff in Cotton Candy
I own endless lip products but I tend to buy really bold shades that I only really wear during the night time, if I'm going out. So when it comes to choosing a daytime lip product, 90% of the time I'll just stick with a lip balm which has a little bit of a tint. However I've recently discovered the Collection 200 Cream Puffs which are like a matte lip cream, and this is quickly becoming my everyday lip colour. It's a very light pink so it's not too loud and because it's matte it stays on your lips for a very long time, which is exactly what I need!

Well that's everything! Any comments on whether you liked/didn't like this post would be really appreciated!
I would also love to see what's inside your make up bag, so please link me if you've done a similar post

*This Item was sent to me for purpose of a review, however all opinions are 100% my own. All other items were bought with my own money.
