Halloween TAG!

1. Favourite Halloween Movie?
Probably got to be the classic Disney movie that gets shown every year on the Disney channel, 'Hocus Pocus' I mean, who hasn't seen and who doesn't love that movie!? Answer, everyone loves it.
2. What Age Did You Stop Trick-or-Treating?
I think the last time I went I was about 12 or 13, after that I kind of just grew out of it and didn't involve myself in many thing halloween related. 
3. Favourite Halloween Costume You Have Worn?
When I was really young my mum made me the classic bin bag witch costume which I wore proudly around the house for days along with a little plastic hat. That costume forever sticks in my mind as a hilarious memory.
4. What Are You Going To Be This Year?
I am not dressing up this year
5. Do You Like Going To Haunted Attractions? 
Urm, No! I am a complete wuss when it comes to anything remotely scary, we're talking wont even go on the haunted mansion ride at disneyland kinda wuss..
6. Vampires or Warewolves?
I'm going to say non-sparkly more manly vampire diaries style vampires.
7. Favourite Halloween Sweets?
I'm not really fussy when it comes to sweets so anything is fine with me.
8. Do You Decorate Your House?
Not a thing, my mum is more the less obvious it is that we are in the less we will be disturbed all evening. Bah Humbug?
9. Least Favourite Costume?
I dressed up as a devil once and it came with this horrible mask that my parents forced me to wear all night, most uncomfortable thing ever plus I didn't look cute like I wanted to..
10. Have You Ever Repeated A Costume, If So What Was It?
I dressed up like a cat like two years running, Miss Original over here!
11. Do You Believe In Ghosts?
I have no idea, all I know is that every time I go to the cemetery to visit my grandads grave it is freezing cold no matter what time of year, perhaps its spirits walking around? hmm..
12. Scariest Halloween?
I never really had a 'scary' halloween, awkward.. 

Happy Halloween! :)

CNL: Fallen Leaves!

Russet - Marks & Spencer - £3.50
I found this polish when I was working down  in the beauty section at work (a complete dream to work in when you are a beauty lover) and it just screamed autumn to me. It's the perfect orange-brown colour that mimics those pretty changing autumn leaves that have fallen from the trees. You could get away with one coat of this polish as its such good quality so at £3.50 it is a complete steal!
What are you favourite autumn shades?

CNL: Inspired by a phone case!

You probably thought "eh?" when you read the title but let me explain! I recently got a Juicy Couture phone case for my Iphone and ever since it was on my phone I have loved it and the colour combination it uses, so being inspired I decided to create a nail look for it. I used three Barry M nail varnishes for this look. Firstly, I applied three coats of the 'Nude' polish on my nails and waited for it to dry completely, this sort of acted like the pale white background, just a more natural shade for the nail than an actual white polish. Next I topped the entire nail with a thin layer of the 'Gold Glitter' polish over the top, you can kind of see in the picture of the case that there is a little bit of gold glitter over it. Lastly I painted a thin line of bright pink along the tip of my nails which was my take on the bright pink sides to the case.

Tory Burch at Tesco!?

Okay, so they aren't the real Tory Burch but how similar are these!? These little beauties are Tesco's nod to the iconic Tory Burch flats that everyone in the blogger/youtube world has seen or owns, however these are avaliable for the fraction of the price. I was in desperate need of some new shoes for work and I mean, actual holes in the front and bottom! I noticed these while having a look around the clothing section in Tesco. I paid £12.50 for these flats which at a glance could easily pass for a Tory Burch shoe, a slight saving compared to the £170+ you would pay for the real deal. A super comfy, super cheap dupe from clothing at tesco, get into your local and add these to your ever growing shoe collection!

MUA Love Hearts!

Another gem from MUA, this time from their collaboration with Love Hearts. My local superdrug has recently expanded and improved their make up section which includes a decent sized MUA stand featuring the love hearts collection. The 'Sugar lips' lip balm caught my eye as it is the perfect pale pink balm that moisturises my lips and leaves the slightest bit of colour so even on those lazy days I can slap a bit of the balm on and still look slightly put together. For only £2 some people may assume it is one of those cheap formulation lip balms however, It is not, I have been using this literally every day since I got it a few weeks ago and my lips have been in such a good condition despite the awful, cold weather. This is definitely going to be my winter essential for my  lips!

CNL: Pink & Sparkle!

This was my attempt at creating a pink and sparkly, almost ombre effect, nails. Lets be honest, pink and sparkly is pretty much me in a nutshell so the bright pink Jack Wills nail varnish with the un named and unbranded pink glitter polish is a perfect combination!

MUA Undressed Pallet!

I am very much aware that I am about 3 months too late with jumping on this band wagon but when checking out the new and improved make up section in my local superdrug store I came across this beauty. MUA's 'undressed' pallet is the perfect dupe for urban decay's original naked pallet at a fraction of the price, how reasonable is £4!? I love using this pallet to create simple neutral eye looks, my favourite kind, as well as a smokey look with the grey and navy shades. The pallet contains a selection of matte and shimmer shadows that all have amazing colour pay off and apply well with good staying power. Yet another gem from MUA. This is perfect for popping in your make up bag to create day or night looks at any time, instead of lugging around the naked pallet. I cannot recommend the MUA range enough, if you haven't already got into it, because the quality and range of products is insanely good for the prices they are sold for.

7 Things for 7 Days!

One of my favourite bloggers, Louise, from Sprinkle of Glitter did another one of her 7 things for 7 days posts so why not jump on the ever so popular band wagon and do one of my own.

Drink more water: After months of my boyfriend telling me I need to drink more water, it is time to actually get down to it and get more litres in my body. Lets hope it leaves me feeling a lot better, helps to clear up my skin and becomes a normal thing to do!

Blog more: I had a little break from blogging as much as I did when I first started and since then I've not got back into it as much so as of now I am making a concious effort to put more time and detail into each post I write and get them up more often then before! 

Make more effort: I feel like I haven't seen the majority of my family for the longest time including my dad so I think its time for me to make a lot more effort to get round and spend some time with them. I am a family girl and love being around them its just a shame I haven't been able to recently.

Cut the junk: I have been hitting the gym with my boyfriend regularly for the last few months and have started to see a difference in my body which I am loving however I am still eating a load of naughty treats! I think its time for me to cut back on the bad stuff and start getting a better diet together (with the help of my ever so smart boyfriend) so the results keep getting better! 

Get Organised: I am still, yes still, in the process of moving house and can't wait to get into my new room. I am in desperate need of sorting and organizing my clothes, make up, shoes, books, you name it, it needs to be sorted and organized. At least then everything will be easily accessible and I will have exactly what I need and can say bye bye to those items of clothing, shoes and make up that I don't need. 

Stop spending: Towards the end of the month I am constantly left thinking "where on earth has all my money gone!?" and I literally have no idea how it manages to disappear away leaving me with hardly any to get me through to pay day. I need to think more about what I'm spending money on and if I really need it as an attempt to keep a bit more in the bank by the end of the month! Hopefully when I start my new job I will have a little more to play with. 

Take care: I always know I should take my make up off every night and maintain moisturising and  keeping my skin looking as nice as possible however sometimes this just doesn't happen all the time. In order to make my self feel better inside and out its time for me to start taking proper care of myself by making the time to remove my make up, moisturise my skin ect..
