Ring from New Look (poor owlie is missing an eye):
After a bit of a lack of inspiration- nail polish wise- lately, today out came my big box of nail polishes I own, ready for a rejuvenation. After chucking out countless bottles of nasty, dried up gunk that I previously kept only on the grounds of '.. but their pretty!', I came across an old favourite, Nails Inc London. This gorgeous mauvey-taupe is a perfect soft, almost-spring colour, however on its own I felt it need a little bit more umph.
So, being the sneaky little sister that I am, I brought my lovely big sis Barry M Cracked nail polish for her birthday this week, and after a little blackmailing (with chocolate, of course ;) she agreed to let me have a little play. I actually really like the effect of just using Cracked on the one finger, rather than a whole hand, and wow, is this nail polish something unique or what!?
This week is half term, meaning that I have a whole week off, away from school. Well that's what they say anyway, but it hasn't stopped them from piling on the work. Its scary how speedily this year is going by. Being in Year 11, I only have about 8 weeks left of normal school, eeekk! After summer I'll be returning to the 6th form, I feel like I'm growing up so fast- scary!
Anyway, that's enough of the rambles from me, have a good weekend my loves! :)

NYX products have been on my 'beauty radar' ever since I've gotten into the whole beauty blogging/vlogging world, however, living in England, it's very difficult to get hold of. After endless searching and lusting after products, I finally came across Cherry Culture, an American website which does ship to the UK. It stocked all of the products I had been searching for and the shipping was only $8- WIN! :)

As some of you may know, my birthday was last Monday and ooh it feels good to finally be the big 1-6!!
On Saturday night I went out for a birthday meal to the restaurant Zizzi's, and boy, do they have good nosh! There I had a few amazing surprises from my lovely friends including the best birthday cake in the whole wide world and a beautiful 'friendship book' made by my best friends in the whole wide world :)
It was a great night, and two days later, my actual birthday was just as good with presents, more presents... and just a few more presents!

The big issue in the beauty industry at the moment is the vicious battle between fake and natural makeup and looks, with many younger girls being pressured into wearing excess makeup or even considering cosmetic surgery, just to feel 'perfect'. This battle in the makeup world is quickly being increased by advertisements claiming fake is better, with the huge rise in airbrushing adverts, however many still swear that natural beauty is best.
My 18 year old sister Sophie is a prime example of this. She is a beautiful girl, but still insists on slapping on makeup by the truckload for everyday wear, when in reality, it is just not needed. A few days ago we conducted a 'beauty experiment' (lets geek out here 8) where I did two extreme makeup looks on her- 'natural' and 'fake'. Here are the results...
Revlon Colourstay Foundation mixed with moisturiser
ELF Mineral Blush in Rose
MeMeMe Highlighter in Sun Beam
No7 Eyeshadow in Wheatsheaf and Mink
Max Factor False Lash Effect
Mac Hue Lipstick
I was amazed when I completed this look on her. She absolutely hated it as it was so out of her normal 'fallback look' of heavy makeup, but in my opinion, I don't think she needs it.
