Beauty | Barry M Showgirl Volume Mascara


Let's file this under 'Products I Bought For The Packaging'. Barry M are spot on with this pretty pink tube... it looks extremely high end with a girly yet not tacky design. Between the two finishes the only difference comes between colour - pink for volume and silver for length. I would have bought both but my local Superdrug only had the volume tube, which is fine for me as I am a volume girl through and through. The question is, will it perform?

Megan Reads | Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell


After loving Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park I was full expecting to enjoy this. It seems to have rave reviews everywhere so hopes were set high - how could the 93 5 star reviews on Amazon be wrong?

(spoiler alert: they were)

Empties | Pre-Uni Clear Out


This isn't the biggest of empties post (and it's a bit of a dud after I've neglected London Callings a bit) but I just really wanted to get everything chucked out before I head back to uni on Friday - I'm not one for leaving mess behind so thought I'd get in a quick post before they're binned.

Seventeen Phwoarr Paint (£5.49) - A heavy duty concealer that is supposedly a dupe for Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer at a much, much smaller price tag. It's good for covering dark circles though I tend to use something else on top to make the area a bit brighter. Would I repurchase? Yes.

Tea Talk | What it Means to Have an 'Other Half'


The phrase 'Other Half' is one that can bring happiness to some and frustration to others. For some people, the two words are outdated, corny and irritating but for many more, including myself, there's definitely a lot of truth behind it.

Megan Reads | Another Bookish Week


Irvine Welsh - Ecstacy

This collection of three short stories are pretty much standard Welsh. They're horrifically brutal and not for the squeamish, plus they can be a little difficult to understand at times. I enjoyed one of the stories but found the other two to be quite hard to get into, Irvine Welsh is an author I really have to get stuck into to enjoy and I just wasn't in the right mood for this.

Nails | Ciaté Haute House


When I nipped into TK Maxx I was hoping to maybe stumble across some nice Ciaté shades - best case scenario the Beach House collection. What I didn't expect to find was Ciaté's new collection Haute House for £6.99. Yes, I was quite shocked too. They aren't my usual colours so I was hesitant to invest in the set beforehand but when I saw them for that price how could I possible have said no?

Beauty | My Little Parisienne Box


I was all set today to share with you Ciaté's Haute House Collection but as soon as the postman arrived I knew that would be waiting another day. I've been dabbling with the idea of a beauty subscription box for quite some time now but never quite took the plunge, however when bloggers started posting about France's 'My Little Box' making it to the UK I was very quick to sign myself up!

Be warned - this post is very VERY picture heavy (I honestly just could not help myself)
